Fluvial Hydraulics. Flow and Transport Processes in Channels of Simple Geometry. Edition No. 1

  • ID: 2181570
  • Book
  • August 1998
  • 692 Pages
  • John Wiley and Sons Ltd
Written by an expert with thirty years experience in the field,this is a concise review of the hydrodynamic concepts andcalculation procedures, upon which fluvial hydraulics isbuilt.

The first part is devoted to steady uniform and non-uniform as wellas unsteady flow in open channels. The second part deals withtransport phenomena, including sediment transport and local scour,turbidity currents and mixing processes in open channels.

The volume is divided into nine chapters of unequal length whichare autonomous and self-contained. The subject matter presented ineach chapter is usually followed by a number of solved exercises,accompanied by a detailed discussion of the solution procedure.Unsolved problems are given at the end of each chapter.

The book is written in a user-friendly style and has a doublevocation. It will readily serve as a textbook for undergraduateand/or graduate students as well as a handbook for theprofessionals dealing with problems in environmental, waterresources, civil, hydraulic and agricultural engineering, and ingeomorphology and geology.
