At Tennessee Tech in the Civil and Environmental Engineering, Dr. Kalyanapu teaches undergraduate and graduate courses related to water resources engineering.

Since 2011, Dr. Kalyanapu has taught the following courses:

Hydraulics

Undergraduate required course

The goal of this course is to introduce you to the fundamental principles of hydraulics and
to provide you with the basic knowledge and tools necessary to accurately analyze and design civil
engineering hydraulic systems (e.g., water distribution, wastewater/stormwater collection, and
pumping applications). After completing this course, you will be able to:


1.   Analyze closed-conduit hydraulic systems including pipes, valves, fittings, and pumps.
2.   Analyze open channel hydraulic systems operating under uniform and varied flow conditions.
3.   Design water distribution systems and select appropriate pump.
4.   Design culverts.
5.   Design storm and sanitary sewer systems.
6.   Interpret hydraulic design requirements, consider alternative designs, justify design
      choices, and critique hydraulic designs.

Engineering Hydrology

Undergrad/Grad level course

The goal of this course is to introduce you to the fundamental principles of engineering
hydrology with application to runoff modeling. You will be introduced to an up to date background
of engineering with special emphasis on runoff modeling for water resources management and. You
will work on gaining factual knowledge on terminology and use of methods of engineering hydrology
and learn to apply course material to specific engineering hydrology problems. After completing
this course, you will be able to:


1.   Estimate water budgets.
2.   Calculate transfer processes in hydrologic cycle.
3.   Define and delineate watersheds and characterize hydrologically relevant characteristics
4.   Apply Rational method for estimating runoff in small catchments.
5.   Apply NRCS method for estimating runoff in small catchments.
6.   Perform Unit Hydrograph Analysis.
7.   Perform Reservoir Routing.
8.   Perform Channel Routing.
9.   Design Stormwater systems.
10. Understand basic concept of hydrologic modeling.

Special Topics: Advanced Modeling and Simulations for Flood Risk Management

Grad level course

The goal of this course is to provide you the ability to
model and analyze advanced
open channel systems and to provide you with competency using the state-of-the- practice simulation
tools.

Course learning objectives:
After completing the course, you will be able to:

1.   Analyze bridge and culvert effects on flow profiles
2.   Perform inundation mapping
3.   Delineate floodplains and floodways using GIS
4.   Simulate steady and unsteady open channel flow
5.   Size storage systems for flood control
6.   Compute dam break flood flows and inundation area
7.   Explain flood risk management in US
8.   Perform flood risk management using existing flood models
9.   Evaluate Uncertainty Analysis in Flood Modeling
10. Analyze Climate impacts on Floods
