The book is a useful addition to any consulting engineer's library, as well as a practical textbook on the fundamentals of open channel flow.
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 of 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.
Dr. Terry W. Sturm received B.S. and M.S. degrees in Civil Engineering from the University of Illinois and a Ph.D. in Mechanics and Hydraulics from the University of Iowa at the Iowa Institute of Hydraulic Research.
