Catalog Description

Theory and application of fluid mechanics and open channel flow to natural rivers and streams. Topics include steady and unsteady uniform flow, gradually varied flow and rapidly varied flow in 1D and 2D as well as ecohydraulics. Students will build proficiency in 1D, 2D and ecohydraulic models. Prerequisites: Some college Calculus (e.g. MATH 1210 & 1220) and Physics (e.g. PHYS 2210 or PHYS 2110) recommended.
