|(3 cr.) This course studies both hydrology, which is the
study of occurrence, movement and distribution of
rainfall, and hydraulic design, which is the
application of fluid mechanics, physical science
and engineering disciplines in the design of
structures and development of water resources.
Hydrologic principles are applied to model and
analyze the distribution and movement of rainfall
in a watershed. Hydraulic principles are applied
to analyze and design flow-through systems of
reservoirs, channels and culverts. The course
makes extensive use of computer simulation models
used in engineering practice.
