Study Objective:

The course for students of intermediate skills in hydraulics learns an ability to understand and a creativity to apply the physical laws governing a liquid flow and the rules for its mathematical and physical modeling. Furthermore, the course learns how to apply the acquired knowledge in solving various complex problems in hydraulic-engineering practice.
