SE-HYD1

Version

3.0

Offered by

Supply Engineering

ECTS

5

Prerequisites

General admission requirements.

Main purpose

To provide students the understanding of basic hydraulics and design urban sewer systems. Furthermore, the student learn to use Mike Urban to analyze and design sewer systems.

Knowledge

After completion of the course, the student must have the knowledge of:
• The physics of basic hydraulics
• The design of rainwater and sewer systems
• The Mike Urban program

Skills

After completion of the course, the student must have the skills to:
 
Basic Hydraulics:
• Determine type of flow
• Use energy equation
• Calculate single and pipe losses
• Calculate hydraulic and energy grade line
• Use exponential and C&W’s formula
 
Sewer systems:
• Calculate inlet for rainwater and wastewater pipelines
• Design and dimension rainwater and wastewater pipelines
• Perform back water calculations
• Design basins

Mike Urban
• Create pipe systems and catchment areas
• Create local CDS-rains with or without climate factor
• Analyze pipe systems and basins with CDS-rains
• Present result as drawings and animations

Competences

After completion of this course, the student must have the competences to:
• Understand hydraulic problems
• Plan and dimension of Urban sewer systems
• Calculate and analyze urban sewer systems in Mike Urban
