ISBN10: 1418032956

Summary: Expanded from 12 to 15 chapters, this edition of Introduction to Hydraulics & Hydrology continues to guide readers to an understanding of the concepts of hydraulics and surface water hydrology as they are used in everyday civil engineering practice. Valued as a reference by professional civil engineers, land developers, public works officials, and land surveyors throughout the U.S., this book is also an important tool for students in these disciplines. The book begi ...show morens by acquainting readers with the principles of hydrostatics and hydrodynamics, starting with fluid mechanics and progressing through pressure, flow, and energy considerations. In the expanded treatment of open channel flow, varied flow is presented, including backwater profiles and hydraulic jumps. Next, concepts of rainfall, runoff, and routing are fully explored and investigated. Finally, these concepts are applied to the solution of practical engineering problems, including: open-channel flow, orifice and weir flow, culvert flow and storm sewer design, culvert design, and detention basin design. A history of water engineering and discussion of the basic concepts of computation and design are included at the beginning of the book for the benefit of readers who may be new to this field. Clearly solved examples are also included throughout the book to assist readers in their efforts to apply theory to practice.

Features:

  • Hydraulics coverage has been greatly expanded and now features discussion of fluid mechanics, hydrostatic pressure on submerged surfaces, measuring devices for pressure and flow, as well as flow under a gate and siphon flow.
  • Open channel flow coverage has been expanded to include varied flow, consisting of backwater profiles, entrance to a channel and hydraulic jumps.
  • Examples and case studies, plus an extensive appendix containing samples of actual design charts, add a real-world dimension to problem solving.
  • Both the Modified Rational Method and the NRCS Method of runoff calculation are described in detail, with examples of each method provided for readers.
  • Topographic mapping enables readers to relate information to real-life situations, with all-new maps added for more extensive practice in delineating drainage areas.
  • The latest stormwater management software is identified in an appendix for readers who want to use the power of computers to solve engineering problems, whether those in the book or ones of their own design.
  • New Chapter on Uniform Flow in Channels
  • New Chapter on Stormwater Detention
