Hydraulic Engineering

By Prof. Mohammad Saud Afzal   |   IIT Kharagpur
Hydraulic engineering, as a sub-discipline of civil engineering, is concerned with the flow and conveyance of fluids. This course consists of the topic like viscous fluid flow, laminar and turbulent flow, boundary layer analysis, dimensional analysis, open channel flows, flow through pipes, and computational fluid dynamics. The objective of this course is to introduce various hydraulic engineering problems like open channel flows and hydraulic machines. In addition this course is a compulsory part of AICTE Civil Engineering curricula
