CE 391 ‐ Water Resources I

Course covers basic concepts in Civil Engineering hydraulics and hydrology with an emphasis on water resource engineering applications. Hydraulics includes: fluid properties; flow measurement; fluid statics; basic conservation laws and properties of incompressible fluids (continuity, energy, and momentum equations); pipe flow and pump/turbine systems; and open channel flow. Hydrology includes: basic hydrological and watershed processes; water budgets; rainfall-runoff models; groundwater flow and well performance; and water resource system characteristics.

ENVE 531 / CE 495‐ Hydrology

The hydrologic cycle and key physical processes defined. i.e., rainfall-runoff relationships, evapotranspiration, infiltration, and groundwater.  Concepts introduced include unit hydrograph, statistics, design storms, and flow routing fundamentals.  Advanced tools for hydrological measurement, data acquisition, analysis and interpretation, and applications for water resources management are discussed. 

ENVE 533 – Green Infrastructure Design

Modification of hydrologic methods for urban systems, urban pollutants of concern, stormwater regulations, low impact development, green infrastructure, design of stormwater control measures, and discussions of stormwater control performance. Class projects will be design focused, offer real world challenges, and require the application of a diverse set of methods and tools.
