ANT302 Modelling in Environmental Engineering

Applies numerical techniques to case studies and real problems in environmental fluid mechanics. Students assimilate the solutions obtained and interpret and relate them to the original problem. Studies cover: water quality modelling of catchments, rivers, reservoirs and estuaries; use of environmental engineering software; air quality diffusion; transport models; and environmental quality indices.
