CIV 237 - Hydraulics/Storm Water Management

The principles of hydraulics and hydrology are covered, followed by application of these principles to the solution of stormwater runoff problems.  Runoff quantity is calculated by the Rational and Win-TR55 methods and then used to size culverts and stormsewer systems.  Manning’s Equation is used for backwater analysis when establishing outlet control in culverts.

Prerequisite- Corequisite
Prerequisite:  CIV 124 Mechanics (Statics)

Credits: 3
2 Class Hours, 3 Laboratory Hours
