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?

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

Why Study Hydraulic Engineering?
Tennessee has 525 community public water supply
systems
RIVER or RESERVOIR
Center Hill Dam
Center Hill Reservoir
Intake Conduit
Storage
Low Lift
High Lift
Treatment Plant
Conveyance Conduit
Distribution System
Supply Pipe
WELL FIELD
4
Urban Stormsewer Drainage System
swales to inlet
detention/retention basin
combined
separate
detention basin
receiving water
5
CEE 3420 Hydraulics
water supply flood storage hydropower
thermal cooling
flood management
irrigation
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

Rebuilding New Orleans

Future Trends Challenges(How can CEE3420 Help
get a job?)
Phase II NPDES Permitting urban runoff,
cities construction sites gt 1 acre
Tennessee Development Stats 525 community public
water supply systems development rate 7th 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
Tennessean 1999
