Fundamentals of Hydraulic Engineering
This text provides comprehensive treatment of hydraulic engineering in both closed conduit and open channel flow and a clear presentation, with more examples and problems than most competitors. The carefully organised coverage, beginning with basics of hydrology, pipelines, and open channels also includes both hydrolic background and traditional hydraulics. A good balance of theory and applications and extensice appendices, including selected computer programs, round out the text.
