Academic Year 2022/23

DRB023 course is part of 4 study plans

DPC-V Summer Semester 1st year

DKC-V Summer Semester 1st year

DKA-V Summer Semester 1st year

DPA-V Summer Semester 1st year

The study includes mainly flow of newton fluids, partly also problems of unnewton fluids flow. Theoretical bases of kinematics of viscous fluids - three main equations. Up to date knowledge of pressure system flow and open channels in steady and unsteady regime.

Objective

Improvement of hydraulics, particulary of flow with complicated structure. Gain knowledge is applicable in designing and mainly research activities together with application of mathematical models of fluid flow.

Syllabus

1. Fluid continuum.
2.–3. Kinematics of fluids – basic equation for viscous fluid.
4. Movement range.
5. Phenonmenon similitude.
6. Local loss of energy, singularities.
7.–8. Open channel flow.
9. Hydraulic jumps in divergent stilling pools.
10. Bridges, weirs in extreme hydrologic conditions.
11.–12. Flow in diffusion régime.
13. Unnewton models.
