On completion of this module, students should be able to:(1) calculate flows and pressures in single pipe systems and in more complex pipe networks; (2) design pump-pipeline systems to meet flow and pressure requirements; (3) understand the impacts of aging on pipe systems and develop solutions to remediate loss of performance that results from possible age related increased friction; (4) re-design existing pipe systems to accommodate increasing demand etc.; (5) analyse unsteady pipe flow situations and understand the significance of transients in pipe design; (6) identify and classify steady, unsteady and uniform and non-uniform open channel flows; (7) apply both the energy and momentum equations in combination with continuity and friction to solve problems in rapidly varied open channel flows; (8) derive the gradual varied flow equation from first principles and extend to rectangular and wide channels; (9) solve gradually varied flow problems by direct and standard step methods; (10) analyse variations in resistance along the wetted perimeters of simple and compound channels; (11) design a closed conduit hydraulic system to convey a specified flow at a given pressure; (12) plan and conduct experiments, analyse and interpret the results and write up your findings in a coherent and logical manner.
