Water engineering

  1. 1. Water Engineering
  2. 2. Background • Civil Engineering – Long History • Water was being fundamental area – Early civilization was based on water • Fields in Civil Engineering – Water Engineering – Environmental Engineering
  3. 3. Water Engineering • Hydrology • Fluid mechanic & Hydraulic • Water resources & planning management • Coastal engineering
  4. 4. Hydrology • Study of water – Design flood estimation – Yield analysis (design of water storage system) – Estimation of environmental flows – Ground water problems
  5. 5. Fluid mechanic & hydraulic • Study of fluids (both rest & motion) – Hydrostatic (fluid pressure) – Fluid flow principle • Conservation of mass, energy & impulse (momentum) – Physical & numerical modelling – Flow in closed conduits (pipes) or open channels – Unsteady flows • Waves, surges & water hammer
  6. 6. Water Resources Planning and Management • 􏰀 Deals with problems from a wide, multi‐disciplinary perspective. • Interfaces with community.
  7. 7. Coastal Engineering • Deals with marine environments – Coastlines • dune management, beach enrichment, littoral drift, waves – Estuaries (salt water), ICOLs – Marine structures • ports and harbours.
