    This book is the culmination of over 40 years of teaching, research, consulting, and international technology transfer activities. It consists of seven chapters with coverage including pipeline design, design safety, design of pumping systems, deep well turbine and submersible pumps characteristics, open channels, hydrology and design of culverts, and flow measurement devices. Some of the practical examples in this book are derived from field experience with water resource related industries at national and international levels.


    • Provides numerous examples related to design and management of hydraulic structures.
    • Includes various design examples for pipelines, open channels, culverts, and other hydraulic structures.
    • Describes various types of pumps used in the industry and provides examples of how to design pump station and intake and outlet structures for various scenarios.

    Hydraulic & Hydrologic Engineering: Fundamentals and Applications serves as a useful resource for teaching advanced engineering topics to upper-level undergraduate civil engineering students. The design-oriented coverage will also serve professionals involved in design and management of water resources and related industries.

    1 Pipeline Design. 2 Design Safety. 3 Design of Pumping Systems. 4 Deep-Well Turbine and Submersible Pump Curves. 5 Open-Channel Hydraulics. 6 Hydrology and Design of Culverts. 7 Simple Flow Measurement Structures.
