Free-Surface Flow: Shallow-Water Dynamics presents a novel approach to this phenomenon. It bridges the gap between traditional books on open-channel flow and analytical fluid mechanics. Shallow-water theory is established by formal integration of the Navier-Stokes equations, and boundary resistance is developed by a rigorous construction of turbulent flow models for channel flow. In addition, the book presents a comprehensive description of shallow-water waves by mathematical analysis. These methods form the foundation for understanding flood routing, sudden water releases, dam and levee break, sluice gate dynamics and wave-current interaction.

  • Bridges the gap between traditional books on open-channel flow and analytical fluid mechanics
  • Presents a comprehensive description of shallow-water waves by characteristic and bi-characteristic analysis
  • Provides an abundance of equations and workout examples
