Description

Since the publication of its first edition in 1999, 'The Hydraulics of Open Channel Flow' has been praised by professionals, academics, students and researchers alike as the most practical modern textbook on open channel flow available. This new edition includes substantial new material on hydraulic modelling, in particular addressing unsteady open channel flows. There are also many new exercises and projects, including a major new revision assignment. This innovative textbook contains numerous examples and practical applications, and is fully illustrated with photographs. Dr Chanson introduces the basic principles of open channel flow and takes readers through the key topics of sediment transport, hydraulic modelling and the design of hydraulic structures.show more

Review quote

This practical and comprehensive textbook covers all aspects of unconstrained water channels... - Environmental Science and Technology "One special feature of this book is that the author provides numerous worked examples, review questions, and interesting historical notes, as well as a number of ideas that are useful to students and might also spark their interest in the subject. Towards the end of the book is a interesting presentation of several historically important projects. Reading through the book, one cannot miss the tremendous enthusiasm the author has for hydraulic engineering. This book will be useful for undergraduate students and I would recommend it to them. I also think that graduate students and practical engineers will benefit by studying this book." Professor Rajaratnam, University of Alberta for the Canadian Journal of Civil Engineering.show more
