3000. VISTA Studio III. 3.

Students will apply professional skills such as project management, engineering economics, professional ethics, and sustainability to an integrated design project. The role of permitting, regulations, and professional codes to design problems will also be explored. Cross listed with ARE 3000. Prerequisites: ARE 2000 or CE 2000, and ES 2410. [Syllabus]

3300 [4320]. Hydraulic Engineering. 3.

Develops analysis, design and modeling techniques for incompressible pipe flow, steady uniform and gradually varied open channel flow, and hydraulic structures. Prerequisite: ES 2330. [Syllabus]

4350 [4810]. Design of Hydraulic Engineering Systems. 3.

For seniors and graduate students in civil engineering who desire to learn design of municipal water distribution and wastewater collection (storm and sanitary) systems by combining principles from hydraulics, hydrology and environmental engineering course work into an integrated design approach. Prerequisite: CE 3300. [Syllabus]

4820 [AGRE 4200]. Groundwater and Drainage Engineering. 3.

Principles and basic equations associated with saturated and unsaturated flow in soils describing groundwater and drainage flow will be developed. Design and analysis of surface and subsurface drainage systems will occur for steady and transient flow. Prerequisite: ES 2330. [Syllabus]

4870/5870. Water Resources Engineering. 3.

Study in water resource planning and design and problem solving applying engineering principles and procedures. Western United States water problems are emphasized, including user completion, reallocation, consumptive use, water development, conservation, conveyance losses, and return flows. [Syllabus]

5300. Open-Channel Hydraulics. 3.

Analysis and design of steady, uniform, gradually varied and spatially varied flow in open channels. Emphasis on basic fluid flow equations associated with natural and man-made open channels. Prerequisite: CE 3300. [Syllabus]

5875. Probalistic Hydrology. 3.

Introduction to the language, methods and tools in systems analysis in stochastic hydrologic modeling; parameter estimation; sensitivity analysis; optimization schemes; uncertainty analysis; probabilistic forecasting; state-space modeling with Kalman filtering, and data assimilation. Prerequisite: CE 4800. [Syllabus]

5880. Advanced Hydrology. 3.

Advanced hydrological analysis for the Mountain States, principles of hydrological system, and the applications of numerical models. Prerequisite: MATH2310 Applied Differential Equations. Hydrology in the Mountain States is substantially affected by the cold climate. This class covers the snow related topics from various angles: engineering practices, climate, remote sensing, ground observations, snow physics, atmospheric forcings, snow redistribution, and snowmelt modeling.
