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.


"The subject matter is presented with a clarity characteristic of the born teacher, and should leave the reader well able to embark upon a study of the more specialised theory required for his particular field of research." - Water Power

"…contains just about everything most engineers will ever want to know about hydraulics…It is recommended for both student and long standing practising engineers alike." - Journal of the Waterworks Officers Association"
