Code: G240M-
Teacher:  Gian Battista Bischetti
Year: 
Term: 
CFU: 
CFU subdivision: Lectures: 6
Practices in classroom: 1,5
Other: 0,5
Basic aims:  The course aims to provide the technical and scientific knowledge needed to tackle the problems of water resources use and of hydraulic protection, with particular reference to forest and mountain environment.
Acquired skills:  Addressing and solving problems of hydrostatics and of uniform flow hydrodynamics in open channels and pipes;
design and verification of simple hydraulic infrastructures.
Course contents:  Elements of hydrostatics and hysrodynamics. Bernoulli's
theorem. Equation of uniform flow. Flow in open channels
and pipes. Pumps and pump power calculation for pipe
flow system. Design and verification criteria of open
channels with non-uniform section characteristics.
Program:  Physical characteristics of water. Fundamental quantities
involved in hydraulics and their units. Elements of
hydrostatics. Instruments for pressure measurement.
Calculation of thrusts on the walls reservoir or on channel
banks. Fundamentals of water flow. Elements of
kinematics. Bernoulli's theorem. Equation of uniform flow.
Uniform flow of water in pipes. Pumps and pump power
calculation for pipe flow system. Free-surface flow. Design
and verification criteria of open channels with non-uniform
section characteristics. Uniform flow in the open
channels. Design and verification criteria. Flow through an
orifice. Flow metering devices in open channels.
Prerequisites:  Basics of physics, trigonometry and algebra.
Preparatory instructions:  Mathematics, physics, informatics
Learning materials:  Lecture notes (on Ariel website)

Other info:  The examin consists in a written test, where the students have to solve 2-3 problems concerning hydraulic design.
The evaluation is based on the correctness of solutions both in terms of numerical resolution and clearness and completness of the presentation
