36500: Hydrology and Hydraulic Engineering

2 lect, 3 lab hr/wk; 3 cr.

Prereq.: CE 35000 (min. C grade).
Instructor: Prof. Reza Khanbilvardi
Fall 2005:                Class Room: NAC-5/102
Teaching Assistant: Rouzbeh Nazari

Syllabus ..... Class Schedule


The aim of this course is to give civil engineering majors a basic understanding of flow systems in closed and open hydraulic and hydrologic systems. This course is designed to provide detail computation for studying, analyzing and design of components of hydraulic systems such as pipes, pumps, open channels and storm collection systems. Included in this course will be two hydraulic laboratory experiments and three computer lab experiments using a commercial software (i.e. Haestad-Method © software) which help students to design and visualize different hydraulic and hydrological phenomena in professional manner.

Additional study material for reference:

Time of Concentration
Channel width reduction and Steps
Pump selection
Basic of centrifugal pumps
Brancing of Pipe

Grading Criteria:

  • Midterms (30%) – Two midterm exams will be administered during class time. The two exams will contain computing and theoretical components.
  • Homework (10%) – A total of 10 assignments will be administrated during the semester (one each week)
  • Project (20%) – Projects will be assigned in the second half of the semester. Students will work in small teams to complete and present the written and the orals parts of projects.
  • Laboratory Reports (10%)
  • Computer Lab (10%) – A total of three computer labs will be given. These computer labs will be submitted using commercial software and a written report.
  • Final exam (20%)
