IWES Offers 'Principles of Hydraulic Engineering and Open Channel Flow' Course in Nov 2017

Thursday, 17 August 2017

IWES will offer a 3 day 'Principles of Hydraulic Engineering and Open Channel Flow' course from 8-10 November 2017 at the University of Queensland (UQ), St Lucia. IWES is the largest and most successful continuing education program for professionals responsible for industry environmental performance in Australia. 

This course is for professionals with an interest in performing hydraulic calculations and developing an understanding of the principles of hydraulic engineering. The general principles of basic fluid mechanics are reviewed and their application to pipe and open channel flows is discussed. The focus of the course is on steady flows of water. This is a practical course, and the lecture material is supported with practical applications, worked examples and laboratory exercises.

Hubert Chanson, Professor in Civil Engineering, Hydraulic Engineering and Applied Fluid Mechanics at The University of Queensland will deliver the course. His research interests include design of hydraulic structures, two-phase flows, coastal hydrodynamics, water quality modelling, environmental management and natural resources. He has authored 12 books including the textbook “The Hydraulics of Open Channel Flow: An Introduction”. Hubert also received the 13th Arthur Ippen award for outstanding achievements in hydraulic engineering from the International Association for Hydraulic Engineering and Research.

IWES delegates will receive a certificate of attendance on full completion of the course. This also includes a record of continuing professional development (CPD) credits attained. 

This popular course is rarely available at IWES events, and spaces are limited. It is recommended that those who are interested, should register as soon as possible to secure a place.
