Coastal Hydraulics (CE473) Course Details

Course Name: Coastal Hydraulics
Code: CE473
Pre-requisite Course(s): CE 307 Fluid Mechanics
Objective: The objective of this course is to introduce the water wave theories and the applications of these theories in coastal engineering. This course aims to enable the students to understand the linear and non-linear wave theories, engineering wave properties and wave statistics and spectra.
Content: Small amplitude wave theory, non-linear wave theories (Stokes, Cnoidal), the solitary wave theory, water particle kinematics, wave transformations, wave height distribution and wave spectrum.
