CV 518 - Watercourse Design

3 lecture hours 0 lab hours 3 credits
Course Description
This course will explore tools and analyses used to develop engineering designs for projects within streams, rivers and other natural or semi-natural watercourses. The focus will be the hydrologic and hydraulic aspects of design, establishing the flow conditions that are a primary driver of the ecological, geomorphic and biochemical processes within aquatic systems. Standard modeling techniques will be emphasized (HEC-RAS and HEC-HMS) but the use of more sophisticated analyses will also be introduced. Topics include watercourse system functions and processes, design flow estimation, watercourse hydraulics, scour sediment transport and geomorphology, and habitat design. (prereq: CV 310 )
