Understanding Hydraulics: The Design, Analysis, and Engineering of Hydraulic Systems

 

Fundamentals of Hydraulic Engineering Systems bridges the gap between fundamental principles and the techniques applied to the analysis and design of hydraulic engineering systems. The book builds problem solving skills in students and practicing engineers by presenting efficient and effective design procedures, appropriate equations, tables and graphs, and applicable computer software.


The first half of the Fifth Edition discusses the fundamentals of fluid statics, dynamics, and flow, giving students practical insight into the analysis and design of pipelines, pipe networks, pumps, and open channels. The latter half covers the design of supplemental hydraulic systems, covering some of the most common hydraulic structures such as wells, dams, spillways, culverts, and stilling basins. The book ends with four ancillary topics: water measurement, model studies, hydrology for hydraulic design, and statistical methods in hydrology, as well as common techniques for obtaining hydraulic design flows.


solutions manual, a test manual (for convenient student assessment or supplemental homework problems), and PowerPoint slides for most chapters (with active learning exercises in the classroom) are also available.
