Hydrodynamic Modeling at the University of Oklahoma

The Hydrodynamic Modeling group at the University of Oklahoma is responsible for several courses, ranging from introductions to civil and water resources engineering to graduate-level courses in modeling and mathematics. Listed below is a brief description of each course. If the class has a home at the Sooner City Web site, then a link to that page has been provided. For more information on courses at the University of Oklahoma, please visit the Online Enrollment Web site.
  • CE 1000 - CEES Seminar
    Seminar provides a common meeting time for students and faculty for department activities, such as invited speakers, project presentations, educational surveys, cross-course project coordination, and policy announcements.
  • CE 3213 - Water Resources Engineering
    Introduce the student to selected topics in environmental engineering, including the following: hydrology, hydraulics, water supply and distribution, pump design, wastewater collection, and storm water management.
  • CE 4123 - Open Channel Flow
    Introduce the student to a broad range of topics in open channel hydraulics, including the following: energy, momentum, and continuity equations, uniform flow, gradually-varied flow, rapidly-varied flow, and sediment transport.
  • CE 5020 - Advanced Math for Scientists and Engineers
    Introduce the student to selected topics in applied mathematics, including the following: linear algebra, vector calculus, ordinary differential equations, complex analysis, and optimization. Students must demonstrate both a conceptual understanding and the ability to apply techniques to practical applications, which will be drawn from various science and engineering disciplines.
  • CE 5873 - Water Quality Management
    Introduce the student to basic principles of surface water quality modeling and control. The course will emphasize the processes affecting water quality in diverse water bodies (rivers, lakes, and estuaries) as well as provide some simple tools to assess the impacts of discharges and engineering controls. These topics are at the heart of the waste load allocation process, which is used to assign allowable discharges to meet a designated standard. Learning culminates with a case study of a "real" system.
  • CE 5883 - Environmental Modeling
    Introduce the student to modeling concepts and modeling theory in the context of meaningful applications. We will try to unify the modeling sequence by exposing students to the full spectrum of modeling: mathematics, physics, and numerical methods.
  • ENGR 3723 - Numerical Methods for Engineering Computation
    Introduce the student to introductory topics in numerical methods, including the following: errors, interpolation, root finding, numerical differentiation and integration, solution of ordinary and partial differential equations.
