By the end of the course, the student will be able to solve Hydraulic Engineering problems employing computational (numerical) methods in cases where:
1. The governing equations are algebraic but cannot be solved analytically (e.g. normal and critical depth in open channel flow).
2. The governing equations are ordinary differential equations (e.g. gradually varied flow in open channels, hydrologic routing through reservoirs, contaminant transport in well mixed systems).
3. The governing equations are partial differential equations (e.g. contaminant advection and diffusion – dispersion, flow through porous media, transient flow in open channels and closed conduits).
4. There is a need for special numerical technics (e.g. time series analysis for hydraulic or hydrologic data).
