Hydraulics for Civil Engineers


Hydraulics for Civil Engineers provides a thorough introduction to the principles of hydraulics and fluid mechanics. Combining core theories with the need for sustainable solutions, the book covers all the fundamental areas in hydraulics, including pressure in liquids, real flow in pipes, turbines and pumps, hydrology of surface water drainage, coastal hydraulics and hydrology of river flow. Key concepts and designs are explored using real-life scenarios with easily digestible topic summaries offered throughout each chapter.
