This classic text, now in its fifth edition, provides not only thorough coverage of the basic principles of hydraulics but also a wide-ranging treatment of practical, real world applications. Its first part focuses on principles: fundamentals, including hydrostatics, hydrodynamics, pipe and open channel flow, wave theory, hydrology and sediment transport. The second part illustrates the engineering applications of these basics to pipeline system design, hydraulic structures, river and coastal engineering, including up-to-date coverage of environmental implications, and a chapter on computational modelling showing the application of computational simulation techniques to modern design in a variety of contexts. This edition includes an overhaul of the principles of hydrostatics, and substantial revisions to the applications of flood hydrology, river conveyance estimation and 2D river floodplain modelling. New material has also been added to the chapters on pressure surge in pipelines, wave theory, sediment transport, computational modelling, flooding and river engineering. Hydraulics in Civil and Environmental Engineeringis 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.
