From reviews of previous editions:
"A landmark in its field. As a text for students there is little by way of a challenge."
-- Institute of Water and Environmental Management Journal
"The authors have done a considerable service to hydraulics by producing such a stunningly simple and clear text."
-- Times Higher Education Supplement
"Chadwick (coastal engineering, University of Plymouth) combines coverage of basic principles of hydraulics with wide-ranging treatment of real-world applications, in this resource for students and practitioners of civil, environmental, and public health engineering. Environmental implications and computational modeling are also covered. This edition contains new material on wave theory, sediment transport, and flood hydrology."
-- Book NewsFrom the Back Cover:
This classic text, now in its fourth edition, combines thorough coverage of the basic principles of hydraulics with a wide-ranging treatment of practical, real-world applications.
It is carefully structured into two parts to deal with principles before moving on to more advanced topics. The first part focuses on fundamentals, including hydrostatics, hydrodynamics, pipe and open channel flow, wave theory, hydrology and sediment transport. The second part illustrates the engineering applications of these fundamental principles to pipeline system design, hydraulic structures, river and coastal engineering, including up-to-date environmental implications and a chapter on computational modelling, illustrating the application of computational simulation techniques to modern design, in a variety of contexts.
This edition includes a major revision of the chapter on Flood Hydrology in line with the Flood Estimation Handbook. New material has also been added to the chapters on wave theory, sediment transport and coastal engineering and updating of material and references undertaken throughout.
Hydraulics in Civil and Environmental Engineering is 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 www.sponpress.com/civeng/support.htm.
