These notes are prepared for the support of projects and courses about open channel flows in watercourses at Aalborg University. It is thought as continuation of, “Brorsen, Michael ; Larsen, Torben. / Lærebog i Hydraulik” (Compendium in Hydraulics) which is available in Danish. The intention of the notes is to prepare the reader for the use of the advanced commercial computer models available for solving hydraulic problems in watercourses and open channels. It is definitely not the intention to present the complete hydraulic theory behind those computer models. The specific details can be found in the literature and in the respective reference manuals for the computer models.

The notes are under continuous development and any comments are welcome. Please send comments to Torben Larsen, Aalborg University,
