Seminar Objectives

The seminar is intended for the generalist civil engineer interested in enhancing his/her skills in the design of hydraulic structures. The course links theory and practice and provides sources of reliable design information. The seminar content is based on a course at McGill University offered to senior year and masters students in civil engineering as well as practising engineers. The focus is on open channel flow. A comprehensive package of notes will be provided as well as a set of solved examples and challenge questions
