Chris Rehmannís Research Group:Mixing in Natural Flows




Rehmann is teaching CE 403 and CE 576 during the spring 2012 semester. He is also teaching the systems thinking module in Engr 110X for students in the E2020 Scholars Program, advising students on aspects of hydrology and hydraulics in CE 485 Civil Engineering Design I, and assisting with Engr 101.

CE 104 Civil Engineering Projects: Spring 2008


Introduction to civil engineering projects and practices.

CE 203 Civil Engineering Synthesis I: Spring 2006


Concepts and applications of engineering economics. Technical communication for civil engineers. Introduction to critical thinking as related to Bloom's Taxonomy of educational objectives. Introduction to self-directed learning. Application of mathematics and chemistry concepts for the solution of civil engineering problems.Prerequisites: CE 104, CE 160, Engl 105, Chem 167 or 177.


CE 372 Engineering Hydrology and Hydraulics: Fall 2006


The hydrologic cycle: precipitation, infiltration, runoff, evapotranspiration, groundwater, and streamflow. Hydrograph analysis, flood routing, frequency analysis and urban hydrology. Applied hydraulics including pipe and channel flow with design applications in culverts, pumping, water distribution, storm and sanitary sewer systems. Prerequisites: statistics, EM 378.



CE 403 Program and Outcome Assessment: Fall 2008-2011; Spring 2009-2012


Assessment of CE curriculum and educational objectives. Prerequisites: Verification of undergraduate application for graduation by the end of the first week of class. Permission of instructor for students who are scheduled for summer graduation.



CE 572 Analysis and Modeling Aquatic Environments: Fall 2006


Principles of surface water flows and mixing. Introduction to hydrologic transport and water quality simulation in natural water systems. Advection, diffusion and dispersion, chemical and biologic kinetics, and water quality dynamics. Applications to temperature, dissolved oxygen, primary productivity, and other water quality problems in rivers, lakes, and reservoirs. Deterministic vs. stochastic models.



CE 473/573 Groundwater: Fall 2007-2011


Principles of groundwater flow, hydraulics of wells, superposition, slug and pumping tests, introduction to groundwater modeling, and contaminant transport. Prerequisites: calculus, CE 372.



CE 576 Environmental Flows: Spring 2005, 2008-2012


Incompressible fluid mechanics with particular emphasis on topics in analysis and applications in civil engineering; primary topics include principles of continuity and momentum, laminar flow, turbulence, river mixing, and boundary-layer theory.For each topic idealized problems illustrating the essential physics are considered first, and then the physical principles and analytical techniques are used in civil engineering applications. Prerequisites: multiple-variable calculus, ordinary differential equations, and elementary fluid mechanics.
