Fundamentals of Hydraulic Engineering

Fundamentals of Hydraulic Engineering

by Alan L. Prasuhn




This text provides comprehensive treatment of hydraulic engineering in both closed conduit and open channel flow and a clear presentation, with more examples and problems than most competitors. The carefully organized coverage, beginning with basics of hydrology, pipelines, and open channels. Also includes both hydrologic background and traditional hydraulics. A good balance of theory and applications and extensive appendices, including selected computer programs, round out the text.
