Classes

Numerical modeling in Hydraulic and Coastal Engineering (since 2011)

Offered: 

2014

Learning objectives:

Participants are introduced to numerical modeling techniques in the field of hydraulic and coastal engineering from a practical point of view. Process chain from data acquisition, filtering, model set-up, calibration and verification to final scenario simulation is trained in theoretical and practical units. Practical units are linked with basic theoretical background covering Navier-Stokes equation, wave action balance equation, advection-diffusion equation and Boussinesq-equation.

Topics:

Hydraulic engineering and Waterway construction (since 2013)

Offered: 

2013

Learning objective:

Participants gain knowledge in river and environmental hydraulics including process understanding of steady, un-steady, uniform and non-uniform flow in natural and artificial open channels.

Topics:

  1. Constructional and maintainance measures in rivers and estuaries
  2. Weirs, reservoirs and hydropower basics
  3. Waterways - Principles and design
  4. Harbor design
  5. Simulation techniques in hydraulic engineering

Environmental Hydraulics - River Hydraulics (since 2010)

Offered: 

2013

Learning objectives:

Participants are trained in basics of and insight into general open channel flows (Dr. Goseberg) and ground water hydraulics (Prof. Neuweiler, LUH). Students are taught to apply theoretical basics to relevant questions in the field of civil and environmental engineering. Description of basic flow problems along with simplified hydro-numerical solution strategies is covered

Topics:

Hydraulic and Coastal Engineering

Semester: 

Summer

Offered: 

2013

Learning objective:

Participants acquire basic understanding about hydraulic and coastal engineering. Students are introduced to basic design concepts within environments such as rivers, estuaries or coastlines. Participants are enabled to reach environmental friendly and sustainable solutions in regard to hydrological, hydro-power or navigable waterway issues; they learn to design (counter-)measures at rivers, navigable waters, harbors as well as in the context of inland or coastal flood protection.
