CEG2501 : Hydraulics
- Offered for Year: 2017/18
- Module Leader(s): Professor Eric Valentine
- Owning School: Engineering
- Teaching Location: Newcastle City Campus
|Semester 1 Credit Value:||10|
The aim of the module is to provide understanding of and ability in the application of fluid mechanics in Civil Engineering.
The module topics include: the engineering applications of hydraulics, resistance to flow, velocity profile development, drag of immersed bodies, pipeline design, development of fraction equations, pipe network analysis and design, performance characteristics of hydraulic machines, steady flow in open channels, uniform flow resistance formulae, application of resistance equations, design of rigid boundary channels, design of erodible channels, energy principles, and momentum function applied to hydraulic jumps and forces on structures.
Outline Of Syllabus
Engineering Applications of Hydraulics. Resistance to flow ( Boundary layers: laminar and turbulent; Velocity profile development; Drag of immersed bodies, drag coefficients). Pipeline design (Flow in pressure pipelines; Development of fraction equations; Design of pipelines; Pipe network analysis and design). Hydraulic machines (Pumps and turbines: performance characteristics; Selection and installation, cavitation; Pump-pipeline system analysis and design). Steady flow in open channels (Open channels: types, uses; Uniform flow resistance formulae; Application of resistance equations; Design of rigid boundary channels; Design of erodible channels; Energy principles, specific energy curves; Momentum function applied to hydraulic jumps and forces on structures.)

Teaching Rationale And Relationship
To impart the basic qualitative and quantitative understanding represented by the knowledge outcomes via a mix of self learning and formal teaching, including advance reading of course notes, formal lecture presentations and discussions/tutorials with active student participation.
The format of resits will be determined by the Board of Examiners

Assessment Rationale And Relationship
To assess the student’s grasp of the basic qualitative and quantitative understanding represented by the knowledge outcomes via a mix of open book on-line blackboard tests and an examination paper designed to test both the width and depth of the student’s knowledge.
Semester 1 Study Abroad students would be required to sit an examination. The paper-based examination will be 2-hour long, taking up 75% of the final module mark.
