Hydraulics for Civil Engineers

Description

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.

Produced by the Institution of Civil Engineers, ICE Textbooks offer clear, concise and practical information on the major principles of civil and structural engineering. They are an indispensable companion to undergraduate audiences, providing students with:
