Learning objectives
The course aims to provide the basic knowledges in hydraulic and hydrology in order to cope with problems concerning the monitoring, the use and the management of water resources in agro-forestry systems. Moreover, the course aims to provide basic knowledges suitable for dealing with problems of design and verification of irrigation systems and hydraulic infrastructures aimed to the control of irrigation, the harvesting of rainfalls, the managing of surface runoff and the hydraulic protection of the territory.
Expected learning outcomes
The students will obtain solid basis of knowledge and qualifications for the investigation of hydraulic and hydrological problems in agro-forestry systems. Moreover, they will obtain basic skills on the use of monitoring techniques and modelling instruments which allow to describe the dynamics of hydrological processes in soil-vegetation-atmosphere systems. The students will obtain the basic knowledges useful to deal with and solve fluid flow problems in pipelines and open channels, applying these concepts in the design and verification of simple hydraulic infrastructures and irrigation systems. The students will obtain also technical knowledges on the dynamics of rainfall-runoff processes as well as the basis for design rainfall drainage and harvesting systems.
