Book Description

This well-established text book fills the gap between the general texts on fluid mechanics and the highly specialised volumes on hydraulic engineering.
It covers all aspects of hydraulic science normally dealt with in a civil engineering degree course and will be as useful to the engineer in practice as it is to the student and the teacher.

Table of Contents

List of principal symbols with derived dimensions. Properties of fluids. Conversion factors and useful constants. Historical note. Properties of fluid. Hydrostatic pressure and buoyancy. Basic concepts of fluid motion. Analysis of pipe flow. Pipelines and pipe sytems. Uniform flow in channels. Non-uniform flow in channels. Hydraulic structures. Pumps and turbines. Hydraulic models. Appendix. Index.
