Course Aim
  • When the course is finished the students will be able to
  • Understand the hydraulic phenomena that are penetrated
  • Know how to solve hydraulic problems under steady state and non steady state conditions for channels, groves and pipes
  • Understand the theories that supports the used calculation methods
  • Apply hydraulic calculation methods with dimensioning and analyses of components in urban water system, e.g. sewers and pumps
  • Be conscious about when the calculation methods are applicable and uncertainties
  • Use hydro dynamic models and analyze well defined problems
  • Understand possibilities and limitations concerning use of hydro dynamic models

  • Energy equation and momentum equation
  • Analysis methods for calculation of steady state and non-steady state conditions
  • Hydro dynamic modeling with SWMM and EPANET


The course lectures will be given at three different occasions during the semester,three days each. The teaching activities consist of lectures, exercises and laboratory tasks.


The examination is a written exam at home in the end of the course and three tasks submitted during the course.
