In this unit you will be introduced to the basic principles of hydraulics and hydrology used in civil and environmental engineering. You will apply the concepts of conservation of mass, momentum and energy. You are also introduced to flow measurements, physical modelling of hydraulic systems, and pump selection to suit given applications. The unit requires you to solve problems, prepare basic designs, and describe the construction and maintenance of pipe and open channel systems. You are introduced to monitoring and analysis of the basic components of the hydrologic cycle including rainfall, evapotranspiration, infiltration, runoff, and groundwater. In completing these tasks, you must use appropriate technical language in written communication and work individually and in teams to solve problems. Students enrolled in distance mode are required to attend a compulsory Residential School.

All on-campus students are expected to attend scheduled classes – in some units, these classes are identified
as a mandatory (pass/fail) component and attendance is compulsory. International students, on a student visa,
must maintain a full time study load and meet both attendance and academic progress requirements in each study
period (satisfactory attendance for International students is defined as maintaining
at least an 80% attendance record).
Term 1 - 2017
This unit has a website, within the Moodle system, which is available two weeks before the start of term. It is important that you visit your Moodle site throughout the term.
