The course is a follow up of the course "816.104 Planning and Design of Hydraulic Structures". The project - finished up to the licencing level - is continued up to a more detailed level of the design of single measures and hydraulic calculations.
Measures have to be integrated in the environment and the landscape based on the main goals of the water framework directive and the fauna-flora-habitat directive.
The tutorial has a high practical orientation.

Previous knowledge expected

816.104 Planning and Design of Hydraulic Structures
