Environmental and Computational Hydraulics (ECMM144)


Detailed Description

Module Code: ECMM144

Module Lecturer(s): TBC

There are considerable challenges in modelling the hydrodynamic, pollution and sediment transport processes in rivers, estuaries and coastal waters, primarily in terms of addressing issues relating to flood risk, coastal erosion, water quality and marine renewable energy. This course will focus on developing an understanding of the governing equations for these processes and outline numerical methods for solving these equations.

You will be introduced to computational models and will apply these to solve practical problems for proposed engineering projects (such as the Severn Barrage) and to study the effect of natural and anthropogenic change,  such as climate change, population growth  and increasing urbanisation on the hydro-environment.

Bookings are limited to one person per module. If you require multiple bookings please contact empsmsc@exeter.ac.uk.
