Hydraulic Structures, Fourth Edition
Published December 21st 2006 by CRC Press – 736 pages
Now includes Worked Examples for lectutrers in a companion pdf!
The fourth edition of this volume presents design principles and practical guidance for key hydraulic structures. Fully revised and updated, this new edition contains enhanced texts and sections on:
The book's key topics are explored in two parts - dam engineering and other hydraulic structures – and the text concludes with a chapter on models in hydraulic engineering. Worked numerical examples supplement the main text and extensive lists of references conclude each chapter.
Hydraulic Structures provides advanced students with a solid foundation in the subject and is a useful reference source for researchers, designers and other professionals.
'An excellent presentation of the most common hydraulic structures… this book is a natural enhancement of the previous successful edition. It will definitely add to the current literature, with significant advantage for students and professionals in the field of hydraulic engineering.' - C. Gisonni, Journal of Hydraulic Research
