This in-depth review of water-resources engineering essentials focuses on both fundamentals and design applications.
Emphasis on fundamentals encourages readers’ understanding of basic equations in water-resources engineering and the background that is necessary to develop innovative solutions to complex problems. Comprehensive design applications illustrate the practical application of the basic equations of water-resources engineering. Full coverage of hydraulics, hydrology, and water-resources planning and management is provided. Hydraulics is separated into closed-conduit flow and open-channel flow, and hydrology is separated into surface-water hydrology and ground-water hydrology.
For professionals looking for a reference book on water-resources engineering.
Chin (civil and environmental engineering, U. of Miami) presents beginning undergraduate students with a picture of water-resources engineering that integrates fundamental concepts of fluid mechanics, water treatment processes, hydraulics, hydrology, and contaminant fate and transport processes. He incorporates and explains the core design principles of water distribution, sanitary sewer, stormwater management, and water-quality control systems. Annotation c.
