9780133728552: Handbook of Hydraulic Engineering (Ellis Horwood series in civil engineering)

The theory of hydraulic engineering is laid out in this handbook and combines design with an understanding of hydraulic principles while at the same time making practical references to experience developed from multiple world engineering projects. The authors' collaboration has brought together the many aspects of this wide field providing coverage which systematically develops, from physical properties, via theoretical principles to form the basis of a comprehensive survey. The work demonstrates numerous hydraulic applications, from open channel flows and measurements to centrifugal pumps and transient flow, with consideration of protective devices. The inclusion of fundamental algorithms, eg, iterative solutions of implicit equations in open channel flow, relate to modern computing methods. There are over 200 tables of data and graphs, plus numerous diagrams to illustrate the theory and underpin the applications with appropriate data. Each chapter contains graphic examples of calculations that are related to real design situations.
