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."
