I am offering two courses: Hydroclimatology (CE223) in the January semester and Open Channel Flow (CE226) in the August semester. Earlier, I co-taught Stochastic Hydrology (CE215) in (2019-2020) and (2021-2022).
CE 226 (AUG) 3:0 Open-channel Flow
Basic Concepts of Fluid Mechanics, Introduction to Open-channel Flow, Uniform Flow, Non-uniform Flow: Gradually Varied, Non-uniform Flow: Rapidly Varied, Spatially Varied Flow, Unsteady Flow, Pollutant Transport in Open Channels.
