Inland Waterways and Weir Structures
Kód předmětu: 142IWWS
|By undertaking this course, students will be able to comprehend the governing ideas of project design of river navigation and regulating weirs and hydropower weir structures as well as navigation locks and canals. The course graduates should be able to implement project study to select optimal type and location for weir and appurtenant structures, specify dimensions and materials of the crucial parts of the structures, analyse seepage through foundations and perform hydraulic design of weir and energy dissipation structures. With regard to the navigation, student will comprehend the issues of modern inland waterway transport and should be able to design basic dimensions of the locks and canals.|
|Weirs - basic terminology; purpose; classification; conceptual approaches.
Data requirements (hydrology, geology, topography); project planning; hydraulic design of weirs.
Foundations for weirs; channel reinforcement; energy dissipation structures.
Seepage and uplift pressures (design solutions and assessment).
Principles of structural design of weir structures (loading and stability).
Fixed weirs (layout, hydraulic aspects).
Gated weirs (flap gates, vertical lift gates, radial gates).
Gated weirs cont. (roller gates, sector and drum gates; inflatable weirs).
Operation of gated weirs; automatic regulation.
Navigation and inland waterways - history and present; different approaches to canalization of rivers.
Boats and floating devices; classification of inland waterways.
Structures on waterways (locks; gates; lifts and canals).
Physical modelling of hydraulic structures on waterways
