CE421  ENGINEERING HYDROLOGY
Fall 2008, 3 CREDITS
Course Objectives
•
Apply Darcy's law to analyze steady 1D flows in confined and unconfined
aquifers
•
Develop a head map based on scattered head data and use it to compute seepage
flow and solute travel time
•
Apply the theory of well dynamics to predict drawdown in an infinite and
homogeneous aquifer
•
Analyze pump test data to estimate aquifer properties
•
Develop and calibrate a computer model to simulate groundwater flow systems.
•
Use a groundwater model to estimate the sustainable yield of a wellfield and
delineate the wellhead protection areas
•
Use a groundwater model to predict contaminant transport in an aquifer and
design a capture well system.
•
Use hydrograph analysis to determine the direct runoff hydrograph, volume of
direct runoff, the unit hydrograph, and the infiltration process.
•
Develop a synthetic hydrograph using a unit hydrograph, rainfall information and
the SCS method to account for infiltration losses.
•
Design the minor drainage system for a planned development.
•
Determine the size of detention pond required to control runoff from an urban
development.
•
Write engineering analysis reports.
