Prerequisites: Basic Hydraulics
Target skills and knowledge: The course mainly covers two topics: unsteady flow in pipe systems, and steady, one-dimensional open channel flow.
Examination methods: Written or oral examination and evalutation of the exercise
Assessment criteria: Understanding and elaboration of the theoretical concepts.
Course unit contents: Unsteady flow in pipe systems: Incompressible unsteady pipe flow, which includes flow establishment, mass oscillation, surge tank, air chamber. Compressible unsteady pipe flow in non-rigid pipes, which focuses on water hammer. Unsteady flow in pipe networks.
Advances in steady open channel flow: Compound channels, bends, very steep slopes. Hysteretic behaviors. Stability of the hydraulic jump. Spatially varied flow with increasing/decreasing discharge. Culvert hydraulics.
Planned learning activities and teaching methods: Lectures and excercises.
Additional notes about suggested reading: Personal notes collected during the lessons and lecture notes
Textbooks (and optional supplementary readings)

Innovative teaching methods: Teaching and learning strategies
