About this book

This well established text provides a succinct introduction to the theory of civil engineering hydraulics, together with a large number of worked examples and exercise problems with answers, to help readers assess their understanding of the theory and methods of analysis and design. The Fourth Edition features a new chapter on hydraulic structures and an expanded section on the gradient method for pipe networks design. Additional problems and worked examples have been added. "Civil Engineering Hydraulics" will be invaluable throughout a student's entire course, and will also be welcomed by practicing engineers as a concise reference.
