Analysis of open-channel flow is essential for the planning, design, and operation of water-resource projects. The use of computers and the availability of efficient computational procedures has simplified such analysis, and made it possible to handle increasingly complex systems.

In Open-Channel Flow, Second Edition, author Hanif Chaudhry draws upon years of practical experience and incorporates numerous examples and real life applications, to provide the reader with:

  • A strong emphasis on the application of efficient solution techniques, computational procedures, and numerical methods suitable for computer analyses;

  • Complete coverage of steady and unsteady flow techniques;

  • A new chapter on sediment transport and updated chapters on uniform flow and two dimensional flow techniques;

  • New and updated problem sets and exercises, a solutions manual for instructors, and a CD-ROM with short computer programs in FORTRAN that include the input data for sample problems and the associated computer output.

Open-Channel Flow, Second Edition is written for students in senior-level undergraduate and graduate courses on steady and unsteady open-channel flow and for civil engineers needing up-to-date and relevant information on the latest developments and techniques in the field.
