5.0 out of 5 stars Study Material 25 Oct 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have used Understanding Hydraulics as my recommended text for students who are learning hydraulics and aspects of hydrology. It is a well written book - using clear and simple language - and it is particularly well structured. The explanations are clear and some quite difficult concepts are made to appear quite simple. The worked examples and self tests (with answers at the back of the book) are an excellent learning method. It is one of the most useful text books I have come across - I only wish that I had had access to such a good text book when I studied for my degree, 40 years ago.

It is a good text book that covers the majority of hydraulics studied at uni, it is slightly less formal than over text books.
