Pool Engineering
E311: GENESIS ENGINEERING SCHOOL: Advanced Pool Hydraulics

Learning Objectives

  • Discuss advanced hydraulic, hydrology, and fluid dynamics design, including gravity systems.
  • Discuss water-in-transit engineering including vanishing edges, slot-edges, gutters, and water features.
  • Use all new WatershapeAdvisor® series of software worksheets, including surge basin design, gravity and drainage systems, channels, lazy rivers, level-bottom slot channels, and more.
  • Perform the complete analysis of a vanishing edge and slot-edge pool and spa combination as a class project.


Advanced watershapes require advanced hydraulic analysis. This program pushes fluid engineering for pools, spas, and water features to a whole new level. The WatershapeAdvisor® series of software worksheets is also improved and expanded with new tools not available anywhere else. There is a detailed project worth 50% plus an online exam worth 50% of the passing score.
