This course covers basic fluid mechanics and hydraulics, including the calculation of pressures and forces exerted by static fluids and the solution of steady single-pipe flow problems. In addition, it covers Bernoulli's principle and the use of various energy loss equations. This is followed by the engineering application of hydraulic principles such as: pipe networks, pumps, uniform and non-uniform open channel flow and measurement. (3.0 Credits)
Diploma of Technology or Degree in Engineering, Science or Natural Resources And 1st year technical Math strongly recommended.

Below is one offering of this course for the Winter 2014 term.
At the end of this course, students will be able to:
Solve hydrostatic pressure, force and moment problems involving plane surfaces of regular geometric shape.
Apply fundamentals of flow continuity principle to solve water balance problems.
Apply Bernoulli's equation and the concept of total energy to solve for flow and velocity in frictionless closed-conduit problems.
Solve closed conduit flow problems involving pipe friction losses by applying Manning, Hazen William or Darcy Weisbach formula approximations.
Assign appropriate local losses for different plumbing fittings such as valves, bends (contraction and expansion) in analysing frictional closed conduits systems.
Solve flow distributions in a looped water distribution network by applying the equivalent pipe method and the Hardy Cross method.
Select the most efficient pump(s) for various engineering applications based on pump performance curves without incurring cavitation.
Apply specific energy principles to assess flow depth and velocity flows in open channel systems under uniform conditions, employing Froud number to determine flow regime.
Graph specific energy diagrams to assess changes in flow depth and velocity in presence of a hump or lateral constriction in open channel systems under non-uniform conditions to determine when and why hydraulic jumps occur.
Demonstrate the use of a piezometer and a pitot tube to measure pressure and flow velocity in a closed conduit system.
Derive flow calculation for weirs of various types.
