Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Students gain the knowledge about selection, installation and operation of pumps and pumping systems, and obtain answers to many specific questions regarding transportation and pumping liquids.

Teaching methods

Experimental work in labs


The course builds on the theoretical knowledge of fluid mechanics. Students learn more about the flow of liquids in pipes, the principles of graphic and numerical solution of simple and complex pipes. They acquire new knowledge about pipeline networks and analysis of flow in branched and circuit networks. Attention is also paid to work of a pump in the hydraulic system and its control.
