Open Channel Hydraulics is intended for advanced undergraduates and first-year graduate students in the general fields of water resources and environmental engineering. It offers a focused presentation of some of the most common problems encountered by practicing engineers with the inclusion of recent research advances and personal computer applications. In addition, emphasis is placed on the application of basic principles of fluid mechanics to the formulation of open channel flow problems so that the assumption and limitation of existing numerical models are made clear.

Retained Features

The combination of theoretical, experimental, and numerical techniques applied to open channel flow provides a synthesis that has become the hallmark of modern fluid mechanics.

Each chapter contains worked-out example problems to aid in the understanding of the text material. Where possible, solutions are given in dimensionless form in graphs to promote an intuitive feel for the physics of the problem.

At the end of each chapter, exercises are presented which involve application of the material previously learned, as well as student exploration of further ramifications of the text material.
