AE2602 Applied Hydrology 7.5 credits
This course is in the process of being cancelled.
The overall aim of the course is to demonstrate the link between basic theory of hydraulics and hydrology more applied problems in hydrology and water resources development.
Educational levelSecond cycle
Academic level (A-D)D
Grade scaleA, B, C, D, E, FX, F
Last planned examination: Spring 14
At present this course is not scheduled to be offered.
After the course you should be able to:
- Describe the processes in the hydrologic cycle (precipitation, infiltration, evapotranspiration, surface runoff etc )
- Solve problems dealing with water balance, evapotranspiration, surface runoff, hydrogrpahs, infiltration, reservoar design, frequency analysi,s hydrologic design, risk analysis and more
- Describe lumped and distributed flow routing and solve Saint Venants equations analyticallyand numerically for the kinematic wave
- Apply a numerical model for steady, non unform open channel flow
- Model a system of linear reservoirs
Course main content
