Hydrotechnical Design of Tunnels

<< Back to Course Catalogue

After Participating in this course, you will be able to:

  • Understand fundamentals of tunnel hydraulics
  • Design various water tunnels such as power tunnel, sewer tunnel, water supply tunnel, diversion tunnel, long culverts, and surge shaft
  • Get familiar with less-known design issues such as tunnel optimization, sediment transport, erosion, hydraulic jump in tunnels, air issues and cavitation in tunnels
  • Acquire a collection of educational video clips and some computational aids

Description:
Tunnels are used in variety of municipal, civil, hydropower, and mining infrastructure to carry water or wastewater. The flow in tunnels can be classified as free-surface or pressurized, steady or unsteady, and gravity-driven or pumped.  The course offers fundamentals and applications of the hydrotechnical design of water tunnels. 

Course Outline:

  • Introduction to Hydraulics
  • Classification of Water Tunnels
  • Fundamentals of Tunnel Hydraulics
  • Significance of Tunnel Lining, Flow Resistance, & Velocity
  • Design of Municipal (water supply/sewer) Tunnels
  • Design of River Diversion Tunnels
  • Design of Power Tunnels
  • Surge Analysis & Protection
  • Special Topics & Review of Some Case Studies
  • A Comprehensive Problem & Solution
  • Five Take-away Messages

Who Should Attend
Professionals from engineering firms or from municipal, provincial and federal authorities with 0 to 20 years of experience dealing with tunnels carrying water for various municipal, power, dam construction, irrigation, or flood control purposes.
