Natural stream channel evolution, response of natural stream to interferences. Generation, properties and transport of sediments. Effect of sediment transport to channel bed roughness. Deformation of particular parts of open channels and train rivers by water flow. Revitalization of water course is one of the possible ways to remediate improper training done in the past. It is also proper remediation after ecological accident, natural disaster, etc. Revitalized channel of a stream should fit the natural condition as muchas possible. This the main difference between complex river traning ang revitalization.
River hydraulics - mathematical models of river flow, mechanic-physical properties of earth materials, biologie
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.
Evaluation of stability of open channels as ecological spine of landscape. Physical bases, theoretical bases and empirical calculation formulas.
Information about revitalization of rivers and dams (reservoirs), work a project of river revitalization (or dam reservoir revitalization).
Specification of controlled instruction, the form of instruction, and the form of compensation of the absences
