Hydraulic costructions Giovanna Darvini
Concepts related to Hydraulics and graphing techniques.
KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING:
The course allows the students to acquire methodological and analytical capabilities useful in identifying, formulating and solving classic problems of the Hydraulic structures using methods, techniques and advanced tools. The course also aims at deepening the more professional aspects of classic themes of the Hydraulic structures related to the water resources management in urban areas, with particular reference to the drainage and water distribution systems.CAPACITY TO APPLY KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING:
To the aim of facing advanced planning and applicative themes, the student will have to acquire capabilities of design and critical analysis for the practical problems typical of the Hydraulic structures. Such capabilities will be expressed through the solution of applicative problems of Hydraulic structures, with specific reference to the design and management of the urban water systems. TRANSVERSAL SKILLS:
The solution of a problem as a practice and the discussion of advanced aspects of the discipline in oral examinations and through the written tests, will contribute to improve the level of the judgement autonomy as well as the written and oral communication ability. Self-study and practice contribute to the development of independent learning ability.

Development of the examination
LEARNING EVALUATION METHODS
The exam is based on a written test and on a oral discussion. The written test consists in resolving some exercices about the topics of the course. The oral test consists in a oral discussion of the course contents.
LEARNING EVALUATION CRITERIA
The positive result of the exam is reached if the student shows, by means of the previously described tests, to have well understood the topics proposed during the lessons and to be able to apply autonomously to problems concerning the Hydralic Costructions.updated methods and procedures.
LEARNING MEASUREMENT CRITERIA
Assignment of the final grade in thirtieths. The final grade is obtained by considering the evaluation of the written and oral test.
FINAL MARK ALLOCATION CRITERIA
A positive final evaluation is reached by obtaining at least the passing grade in each of the tests (written and oral). Maximum evaluation is reached when the candidate shows a deep and complete knowledge of the topics of the course in both the tests.
