1 Introduction to Hydraulic Engineering – CEE3420 What is Hydraulic Engineering? Connection between Hydraulic Engineering and Fluid Mechanics (prereq)? Hydraulics and Hydrology – The Difference? Why Study Hydraulic Engineering? Who cares?

2 Definition Hydraulic Engineering is a sub-discipline of Civil Engineering concerned with the flow and conveyance of fluids, principally water. This area of engineering is intimately related to the design of bridges, dams, channels, canals, and levess and to both sanitary and environmental engineering. Common topics for design of Hydraulic Engineers are: Hydraulic Structures like dams, levees, culverts; Water Distribution networks, water collection networks, storm water management, sediment transport and various other topics related to Transportation Engineering and Geotechnical Engineering - From Wikipedia

3 Why Study Hydraulic Engineering? LowLift Intake Conduit TreatmentPlant High Lift ConveyanceConduit Storage DistributionSystem Supply Pipe RIVER or RESERVOIR WELL FIELD Tennessee has 525 community public water supply systems Center Hill Dam Center Hill Reservoir

4 Urban Stormsewer Drainage System combined separate detention basin detention/retention basin swales to inlet receiving water

5 CEE 3420: Hydraulics water supply flood storage hydropower irrigation thermal cooling flood management water supply and stormwater management navigation

6 But why care about water? Too little or Too much is a problem

7 Real-world Application of Hydraulic Engineering: Two Scenarios 1. Pioneers settling in the river banks of Memphis in the 1700s 2. Rebuilding New Orleans after Katrina

8 Rebuilding New Orleans

9 Future Trends & Challenges (How can CEE3420 Help get a job?) Tennessee Development Stats 525 community public water supply systems development rate 7 th in nation 80,400 acres/year Problems Greater water demand Increased pollution from urban runoff Solutions Water conservation/efficiency Better site design Stormwater system retrofitting Stormwater Utilities BMP technologies Phase II NPDES Permitting urban runoff, cities construction sites > 1 acre Tennessean 1999 Stormwater treatment
