Objectives | The course aims to provide engineering students thorough lessons on problems related to currents under pressure and with free surface, and the basics of hydraulic modeling. Moreover, the elements for the design of structures under the action of liquids and of pipelines for conveying them in conditions of permanent and varied motion. The course includes, in addition to theoretical class, a few hours of exercise for the application of theoretical concepts to real problems that can be of practical interest for civil engineers. |
