CVEN 5345 - Computational Methods for Water Resources


This course covers two major areas: hydrologic and hydraulic numerical routing schemes. The hydrologic routing includes linear and nonlinear reservoir operations using the characteristic curves derived from the reservoir geometry. The hydrologic routing numerical scheme will be applied to optimize the reservoir operations for power generation, irrigation, and flood control. The hydraulic routing covers Dynamic Flood Wave, Diffusive Wave, and Kinematic Wave. The finite difference method is used to develop numerical models to predict flood flows through channels. This course also covers probable maximum precipitation and dam break flow analysis. Prereq: CVEN 3323. Max hours: 3 Credits. Semester Hours: 3 to 3
