Subject syllabus:

The subject deals with hydrotechnical constructions (such as reservoirs – dams, diversion weirs –sluices, waterways and use of water energy). Curriculum: 1. Diversion weirs. Basic terms. 2. Specific features of hydrotechnical facilities. 3. Source data for designing of hydrotechnical facilities. Research works. Influence of hydrotechnical facilities on natural and living environments. 4. Loading of hydrotechnical facilities: loading caused by water, own weight, pressure of soil and rock, changing temperature or volume, seismic activities. 5. Diversion weirs. Dams: gravity dams, arch dams, multiple dams, special-construction dams. 6. Weirs: fixed weirs and gates weirs. 7. Equipment of diversion weir facilities: emergency spillways, bottom outlets, gravel chute and fish passes. 8. Water take-off facilities and water transport facilities. 9. Waterways: inland navigation, adjustments of waterways for navigation, inland canals, waterway facilities, waterways and environment. 10. Using energy of water. Generation of energy and power. Water equipment. Hydraulic power plants in a power grid. Types of hydraulic power plants. 11. Hydraulic power plants. Pumped storage hydro plants. Small-size hydro plants. Use of water energy and environment. 12. Foundations of hydrotechnical facilities. 13. Dewatering of dam bodies. Embankment and fieldwork on slopes. Leakage in dams and dam environment. Calculation of water leakage through dam bodies and subsoil. 14. Designing of concrete dams: gravity dams built from rolled concrete and arch dams in specific conditions. Framework plan of seminars: 1. Basic terms of hydrotechnical facilities. Division of facilities. A sample simple profile of homogeneous and non-homogeneous dams. A transverse cross-section through a fixed concrete weir. 2. Source data for designing of hydrotechnical facilities. General terms used in hydrostatistics and hydrodynamics. 3. Discharge of water through an opening in a vessel. General formula for discharge through a small opening. Adjustment of the basis formula for a real liquid. Discharge through a big opening. Adjustment of a discharge opening. 4. Hydrostatic force of the liquid. Hydrostatic force of the horizontal bottom. Hydrostatic force applied onto a general plane. Graphical solution to hydrostatic forces. 5. Example of a hydrostatic force applied onto a planar and curved surface. 6. Even and stable motion in a watershed. Basic equations for the motion in a watershed. Determining a velocity coefficient. Transverse profiles of watersheds. Calculation of a flow rate in a watershed. 7. Tranquil and shooting flow. Hydraulic jump – critical tranquil and shooting flow. Definition of a water flow. Calculation of a water flow. Designing a stilling basin. 8. Hydraulic parameters of bridges and culverts. Uneven steady motion. Water level shapes in uneven motion. 9. Uneven motion. Oscillation waves. Translation waves. Water shocks in pipes. Emptying and filling of vessels. 10. Overflow of liquid across a wall. Definitions and breakdown of overflows. Types of overflow beams. Metering overflow with a side narrowing. Overflows in weir bodies. Overflows across dam crests. Special types of overflows. 11. Loading of hydrotechnical facilities, Wind waves. Impacts of leaking water. Soil and rock pressure loads. Flows of statistic impacts of ice on hydrotechnical facilities. Loads caused by seismic activities. 12. Calculation of water leakage through dam bodies and subsoil. Homogeneous dam on impermeable subsoil. Leakage through the homogeneous dam without drainage. Homogeneous dam with drainage. Earth embankment with medium soil sealing - calculation of total leakage. 13. Static assessment of earth dams. Non-cohesive soil (slope without water, water leaking into slopes, water leaking in a parallel way with a slope). Cohesive soil. 14. Operation of water facilities. Operation reliability. Purpose of operation. Safety and technical supervision.
