C&ENVENG 7047 - Analysis of Rivers and Sediment Transport

North Terrace Campus - Semester 1 - 2014

This course will examine advanced topics in open channel flow such as flow in compound channels, complex water surface profiles, unsteady flow and students will gain experience in using HEC-RAS. These will be followed by an introduction to River Mechanics and modelling flow in 2D and 3D situations, such as meandering channels and flow around piers and other structures. The course will also introduce concepts in sediment transport and examine techniques to predict the threshold of motion, sediment transport rates as well as local scour and morphology changes. The lectures will be used to introduce topics and the students will be expected to gain a greater understanding of the material through the design and tutorials and through their own self-study.
