Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0195690389, Paperback)

Designed to serve as a textbook for students pursuing a BTech or BE program in civil engineering, the book aims to impart a clear understanding of the concepts of open channel hydraulics. The book would also be useful for postgraduate students of civil engineering and practising engineers.

Beginning with an introductory chapter that classifies the flow into various categories, Flow Through Open Channels describes uniform flow, gradually varied flow, and rapid varied flow in great detail. The subsequent chapters provide a comprehensive coverage of channel transitions, spartially varied flow, and unsteady flow. A simplified introductory description of important topics such as flow in mobile bed channels and pollutant transport in open channels has also been included in the text. Solved examples with emphasis on numerical or approximate methods have been liberally used to explain the practical application of concepts learnt. Practice problems provided have been designed to enable the reader to apply his/her learning to a variety of situations and to urge the reader to think beyond the matter covered in the textbook. The lucid treatment in the book encourages self study and instills working knowledge of hydraulics in a student.
