Institute of Water Structures

Prerequisites

Mathematics, physics, special courses of water management specialization

Planned educational activities and teaching methods

Teaching methods depend on the type of course unit as specified in the article 7 of BUT Rules for Studies and Examinations.

Objective

Students gain knowledge of theory of hydrodynamic phenomenons modelling including possible reduction of similitude scale. Overview of application of modern measuring techniques including contactless methods (laser, ultrasonic) for identification of flow structure. The measuring technology will be introduced to students in laboartory.
