DescriptionThe course deals with flow processes in natural hydrosystems. Groundwater as well as open water bodies are considered. The part on groundwater hydraulics includes flow in confined, unconfined, and semi-confined aquifers, well hydraulics, pumping tests and other hydraulic investigation techniques, as well as questions of regional groundwater management (groundwater recharge, flow in the vadose zone, salt-water intrusion etc.). The part on open water bodies includes the shallow water equations, transient open-channel flow, turbulence and flow in strongly stratified systems.
Learning objectivesStudents have fundamental knowledge of flow in various natural hydrosystems and its application in civil and environmental engineering.
