Knowledge and understanding:
At the end of the course, the student should know, and be able to understand, the basic concepts and the applications of some widely used software in the field of hydraulic engineering, especially in the context of urban drainage and water distribution networks and two-dimensional hydraulic modeling of channels. The student should also gain insight into the capabilities, but also the limitations and approximations, which may result from the application of numerical models to real case studies.
Applying knowledge and understanding:
At the end of the course, and after passing the exam, the student should be able to identify the main parameters and components that govern the complex hydraulic systems studied. Then, the student should be able to apply the appropriate numerical model. At the same time, the student should be able to analyze and confirm the software results and to manage the problems that can be encountered in numerical modeling. Finally, the student must be familiar with the technical terminology used by the software.
Making autonomous judgments:
The student should be able, with critical mind, to autonomously apply the software studied during the course to real cases. The student should have the ability to make autonomous judgements in evaluating the results produced by colleagues in the studied fields..
The student should be able to clearly present, with the correct terminology, the results of the numerical models by means of texts, tables and charts.
