About this book


Analysis of open-channel flow is essential for the planning, design, and operation of water-resource projects. The use of computers and the availability of efficient computational procedures has simplified such analysis and made it possible to handle increasingly complex systems.
In Open-Channel Flow, Second Edition, author Hanif Chaudhry draws upon years of practical experience and incorporates numerous examples and real life applications to provide the reader with:
Numerous applications of efficient solution techniques, computational procedures, and numerical methods suitable for computer analyses;
Comprehensive coverage of steady and unsteady flow techniques;
New and updated chapters on sediment transport, uniform flow, two dimensional flow techniques and other topics;
Updated and new problem sets and exercises;
A detailed solutions manual is available to instructors assigning this text as the primary book in the course.
Open-Channel Flow, Second Edition is written for advanced undergraduate and graduate courses that covers both steady and unsteady open-channel flow.
