CIVL 455 River Engineering F | 4

Lecture: 3
Lab: 0.5
Tutorial: 0.5
A course in the basics of river engineering including the study of alluvial processes, the prediction and consequences of sediment transport, the design of measures to control erosion and accretion, and the design of dams, spillways and diversions. Cristical aspects in the design of river engineering structures and assessment of environment impact of river engineering projects are discussed. The use of physical and numerical models in the practice of river engineering is illustrated. The principles of natural channel design, stream restoration, and bioengineering in river environments are also addressed.
