About this book

The second edition of Julien's textbook presents an analysis of rivers from mountain streams to river estuaries. River Mechanics is rooted in fundamental principles to promote sound engineering practice. State-of-the-art methods are presented to underline theory and engineering applications. River mechanics blends the dual concepts of water conveyance and sediment transport. Like the first edition, River Mechanics contains ample details on river equilibrium, river dynamics, bank stabilization, and river engineering. Complementary chapters also cover the physical and mathematical modeling of rivers. As well as being completely updated throughout, three new chapters have been added on watershed dynamics, hillslope stability, and stream restoration. Throughout the text, hundreds of examples, exercises, problems, and case studies assist the reader in learning the essential concepts of river engineering. River Mechanics is very well illustrated to enhance advanced student learning, while researchers and practitioners will find River Mechanics to be an invaluable reference.
