Department of Hydraulic Structures
Synopsis:

By undertaking this course, students will be able to comprehend the governing ideas of project design of river navigation and regulating weirs and hydropower weir structures as well as navigation locks and canals. The course graduates should be able to implement project study to select optimal type and location for weir and appurtenant structures, specify dimensions and materials of the crucial parts of the structures, analyse seepage through foundations and perform hydraulic design of weir and energy dissipation structures. With regard to the navigation, student will comprehend the issues of modern inland waterway transport and should be able to design basic dimensions of the locks and canals.
