About this book

This text covers the full range of material needed by civil engineering students in their study of hydraulics. It begins by covering the fundamental material with which it is important to get to grips before progressing to more advanced study. Detailed explanation of these fundamentals gives the reader a clear understanding of what happens, as well as why, when and where. The author is careful to match the mathematics to the level needed by students at this level, and a range of pedagogical devices are used to reinforce the learning.
