Product Description

From the Back Cover

Learn the principles and practice of water resources engineering from a leader in the field!
Now updated with a new chapter on sedimentation (Chapter 18), this 2005 Edition of Larry Mays's WATER RESOURCES ENGINEERING provides you with the state-of-the-art in the field. With remarkable range and depth of coverage, Professor Mays presents a straightforward, easy-to-understand presentation of hydraulic and hydrologic processes using the control volume approach. He then extends these processes into practical applications for water use and water excess, including water distribution systems, stormwater control, and flood control. With its strong emphasis on analysis and design, this text will be a resource you'll refer to throughout your career!
Features
*New! A new chapter (Chapter 18) covers sedimentation.
*Practical applications will prepare you for engineering practice.
*Coverage spans an extraordinary range of topics.
*Many example problems with solutions will help you hone your problem-solving skills.
*Practice problems at the end of each chapter offer you the opportunity to apply what you've learned.
*Includes a review of basic fluid concepts and the control volume approach to fluid mechanics.
Larry W. Mays is Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Arizona State University and former chair of the department. He was formerly Director of the Center for Research in Water Resources at The University of Texas at Austin, where he also held an Engineering Foundation Endowed Professorship. A registered professional engineer in seven states and a registered professional hydrologist, he has served as a consultant to many organizations. Professor Mays is author of Optimal Control for Hydrosystems (Marcel-Dekkar, Inc.), co-author of Applied Hydrology (McGraw-Hill) and Hydrosystems Engineering and Management (McGraw-Hill), and editor-in-chief of the Water Resources Handbook (McGraw-Hill), Hydraulic Design Handbook (McGraw-Hill), and the Water Distribution Systems Handbook (McGraw-Hill). He was also editor-in-chief of Reliability Analysis of Water Distribution Systems (ASCE) and co-editor of Computer Modeling of Free Surface and Pressurized Flows (Kluwer Academic Publishers). Among his honors include a distinguished alumnus award from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 1999.

Water Resources at your finger tips! 9 Sept. 2000
By Iftekhar Ahmed - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Larry W. Mays has written an outstanding text that provide students with a complete picture of water resources engineering by integrating the fundamental concepts of fluid mechanics, hydraulics, hydrology, and contaminant transport processes. The material in the text is presented from first principles, is rigorous, is relevant to the practice of water resources engineering, and is reinforced by detailed presetations of design applications. A text worth having next to vintage books on this subject in W-R engineers' library.

Water Resources Engineering 7 Jun. 2008
By E. Brown - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book is loaded with good information, but we found errors in key hydraulic formulas, which quickly led me not to trust anything out of the book. The sad part is, this was a required text for an engineering class. Maybe the new edition has remedied the problems, but I wouldn't recommend the edition I bought.

Excellent Textbook 6 July 2010
By Doug - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
One of my coworkers had this book, I kept using it as a reference so I eventually bought my own copy. It is an outstanding textbook and an important reference book to have on hand. I highly recommned it. It is far better than the "Hydraulic Engineering" textbook I had in college.
solid choice! 18 Dec. 2014
By MICHAEL ZLOTOFF - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
i bought this book as part of a graduate-level course. it is a great compendium of water resources engineering topics and has easy-to-use sections with appropriate level of detail. if you need very practical guidance, or very technical guidance, this isn't your best bet, but if you need something in between this is a good choice!

Great book for any civil engineering professional 29 Oct. 2008
By Gte966t - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
One of the best water resources books. It covers all major and minor topics in water resources and is a great reference for the PE Exam.
