Product Description

Review

From reviews of previous editions 'a landmark in its field. As a text for students there is little by way of a challenge.' - Institute of Water and Environmental Management Journal 'The authors have done a considerable service to hydraulics by producing such a stunningly simple and clear text.' - Times Higher Education Supplement 'combines coverage of basic principles of hydraulics with wide-ranging treatment of real-world applications, in this resource for students and practitioners of civil, environmental, and public health engineering.' - SciTech Book News

From the Back Cover

This classic text, now in its fourth edition, combines thorough coverage of the basic principles of hydraulics with a wide-ranging treatment of practical, real-world applications.

It is carefully structured into two parts to deal with principles before moving on to more advanced topics. The first part focuses on fundamentals, including hydrostatics, hydrodynamics, pipe and open channel flow, wave theory, hydrology and sediment transport. The second part illustrates the engineering applications of these fundamental principles to pipeline system design, hydraulic structures, river and coastal engineering, including up-to-date environmental implications and a chapter on computational modelling, illustrating the application of computational simulation techniques to modern design, in a variety of contexts.

This edition includes a major revision of the chapter on Flood Hydrology in line with the Flood Estimation Handbook. New material has also been added to the chapters on wave theory, sediment transport and coastal engineering and updating of material and references undertaken throughout.

Hydraulics in Civil and Environmental Engineering is an essential resource for students and practitioners of civil, environmental and public health engineering, and associated disciplines. It is comprehensive, fully illustrated and contains many examples. A solutions manual, computer program listings, and useful links are available on an accompanying website www.sponpress.com/civeng/support.htm. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Format: Paperback
This book is simply and clearly put, with worked examples, making it ideal for grasping the concepts required. However, a little bit of colour here or there wouldn't go amiss - would help clarify some images (which can be quite hard to make out in black and white) and add to diagrams.
Overall though, a very detailed extensive text, would recommend.

This is a very good readable book for the professionals specialize on the field of hydraulics but also to the people which are not directly related to the subject but need to communicate with the specialists.

The worked examples can prove a bit dense and hard to follow to beginners, but with so much detail once you have the basics down it is better for 2nd/3rd year hydraulics in a university degree.
