Water Resources Engineering, 2nd Edition
August 2010, ©2011
- Material is presented from first principles in a rigorous fashion - Basic principles (continuity, energy, momentum) are all based upon a control volume approach, which provides a natural way for students to be introduced to concepts in hydrology and hydraulics.
• Text is design oriented - No other water resources or hydraulics books are as design oriented. The design problems are presented in detail and are relevant to the practice of hydrology, hydraulics and water resources. Design procedures outlined in the text are consistent with government design procedures.
• Examples are real world based - Example problems and solutions help the student to hone their problem-solving skills. Practice problems at the end of each chapter offer the opportunity for students to apply the concepts they have learned.
• Wide coverage of topics- Provides a complete picture of water resources engineering by integrating the fundamental concepts of fluid mechanics, hydraulics, hydrology, and water resources. Text also includes a quick review of basic fluid concepts and the control volume approach to fluid mechanics.
