Basic knowledge of free surface hydraulics and sediment transport mechanics.
A knowledge of the main concepts of slope stability, hydrological processess and groundwater flow is warmly suggested.
To learn the main methods for river flow and sediment transport control, including interaction between river flow and structures.
• flood control: detention basins, spillways, levees
• solid transport control: . Bank protection and stabilization,
river training techniques
• Interaction between structures and water and sediment flow, e.g., brridges, culverts
• vulnerability reduction
• main regulations: PAI, PGRA, reference agencies and organizations
