This course is designed to introduce the computational aspects of hydraulics in the context of Civil Engineering problems, e.g., groundwater flow, open channel flow, flow in closed conduits. Going through the course, one would develop first-hand knowledge of numerical simulation. This course will also help in creating a background to understand the difference between various discretization methods. The course will enable one to make the appropriate choice among available standard Softwares.
