In this unit, you will be introduced to the basic principles of hydraulics and hydrology used in civil and environmental engineering. You will apply the concepts of conservation of mass, momentum, and energy. You are also introduced to flow measurements, physical modeling of hydraulic systems, and pump selection to suit given applications. The unit requires you to solve problems, prepare basic designs, and describe the construction and maintenance of pipe and open channel systems. You are introduced to monitoring and analysis of the basic components of the hydrologic cycle including rainfall, evapotranspiration, infiltration, runoff, and groundwater. In completing these tasks, you must use appropriate technical language in written communication and work individually and in teams to solve problems. In this unit, you must complete compulsory practical activities. Refer to the Engineering Undergraduate Course Moodle site for proposed dates.

Offerings For Term 1 - 2022
All on-campus students are expected to attend scheduled classes –
in some units, these classes are identified as a mandatory (pass/fail) component and attendance is compulsory.
International students, on a student visa, must maintain a full time study load and meet
both attendance and academic progress requirements in each study period
(satisfactory attendance for International students is defined as maintaining at least an 80% attendance record).
This unit has a Compulsory Residential School for distance mode students and the details are:
