The subject represents an introduction overview of the sources of failures in hydraulic systems, the definitions of the risk categorization and representations of risk and the risks of non-compliance with the purpose of water works or system.

Followed by quantifying the risks and possibilities of the application risk analysis of vice-criteria evaluation of task and problems.

An essential part of the subject of the introduction of knowledge-based and expert systems (basic concepts and principles), understanding the principles of work with knowledge and familiarization with the basic activities and practices from the field of knowledge engineering. In the context of understanding the technology processing expertise, students will be also acquainted with the processes of discovery, capture, creation, classification and representation of expert knowledge. Knowledge of learning theory will be applied to the pilot examples of knowledge-based methods in water management practice.
