Now in its fifth edition, Hydraulics in Civil and Environmental
Engineering combines thorough coverage of the basic principles of
civil engineering hydraulics with wide-ranging treatment of
practical, real-world applications.
This classic text is carefully structured into two parts to
address principles before moving on to more advanced topics. The
first part focuses on fundamentals, including hydrostatics,
hydrodynamics, pipe and open channel flow, wave theory, physical
modeling, hydrology, and sediment transport. The second part
illustrates the engineering applications of these fundamental
principles to pipeline system design; hydraulic structures; and
river, canal, and coastal engineering including up-to-date
environmental implications. A chapter on computational hydraulics
demonstrates the application of computational simulation techniques
to modern design in a variety of contexts.
What s New in This Edition
- Substantive revisions of the chapters on hydraulic machines,
flood hydrology, and computational modeling
- New material added to the chapters on hydrostatics, principles
of fluid flow, behavior of real fluids, open channel flow, pressure
surge in pipelines, wave theory, sediment transport, river
engineering, and coastal engineering
- The latest recommendations on climate change predictions,
impacts, and adaptation measures
- Updated references
Hydraulics in Civil and Environmental Engineering, Fifth Edition
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 worked examples. Spreadsheets and useful links to other web
pages are available on an accompanying website, and a solutions
manual is available to lecturers.
