Hydraulics in Civil Engineering

Hydraulics is an important field in Civil Engineering that has to do with the mechanical properties of liquids. Whether the project is a tunnel, road or series of pipes running through a building, it’s important to know how the water will travel and what conditions the building will be safe under.

Basic Principles Of Hydraulics

Pascal’s Law states that the “Pressure applied to any part of a confined fluid transmits to every other part with no loss. The pressure acts with equal force on all equal areas of the confining walls and perpendicular to the walls. This is the basic principle for any hydraulic system.”
