Course Description

This lecture picks up various water-related problems and provides their explanation and solution methodology related to hydrodynamic and hydrological infrastructure improvements, maintenance, disaster prevention against flood and damage of water environment, interweaving several leading-edge cases in the real world. Turbulent flow and CFD, sediment transport system and design/planning of hydraulic structure are described on the basis of the integrated management of river-and-coast systems with sediment control and these relationship with infrastructure improvement. Perspective from the viewpoint of public environmental infrastructure on water environment is presented.


Grading is based on students activities in lectures and reports.

Course Goals

Students learn about case-based practical solutions against various problems related to hydraulic engineering, and students acquire academic preparation of how to approach to public environmental infrastructure on water area.
