Fall 2019: Engineering Hydrology (CIVENG 4A04)
This is an introductory course on the principles of hydrology and hydrologic modelling. Hydrology is the study of water storage, transport, and flow on Earth. As engineers, our goal is to understand these processes and plan accordingly. Nearly every discipline within civil engineering is connected to some aspect of hydrology, from the management of water resources to the design of bridges to withstand flooded rivers. By the end of the course, students should have a good understanding of the hydrologic cycle, and be able to perform basic hydrologic calculations needed in the design civil infrastructures.
Winter 2019: Fluid Mechanics (CIVENG 2O04)
This is an introductory course on the fundamental principles of fluid mechanics. By the end of the course, students should have a good intuition of fluid flow in simple geometries and be able to solve fluid problems mathematically using conservation of mass, momentum and energy. In addition to analytical approaches, we will introduce empirical models that are sometimes necessary to solve fluid flow in complex geometries.
