The course deals with the hydraulic design of hydropower plants, artificial drainage networks and irrigation plants, both pressurized and open-channel.

Adduction main pipelines: gravity and lift schemes, hydraulic transients control, charge and compensation basins, oscillatory wells.
Hydropower plants: basic schemes, plants with and without flow regulation, forced pipelines, interception, regulation and security valves, plant project and design.
Hydraulic turbines: definitions, classification and functional features, fundamental equation of hydraulic turbines, similarity and characteristic rounds number, characteristic curves, problems in machine operation.
Hydroelectric power plants: operating programmes, automatic regulations of hydroelectric groups, pressure control and escape velocity of groups.
Irrigation plants: scope and definitions, relationships between soil, climate and crops, field water supply, pressurized and open-channel irrigation networks, watering methods and schemes. Outlines of drainage networks: hydrological references, scope, hydraulic design.

Modalità d'esame
In order to take the final examination, the numerical exercises must be produced 7 days in advance.
The examination splits into two parts: A) discussion on exercises and practical test with their computational tools ; B) questions about the course programmein written or verbal form (student’s choice).
