Product Description


"This book is an excellent standalone reference for education in the field of hydraulics and fundamentals of fluid mechanics. The book gives theoretical considerations and encourages students to learn by inspiring them with insights into the real world of engineering. The book is also useful for practical engineers, providing a good overview of realistic hydraulic engineering problems and their solutions."
―Miroslav Marence, Proceedings of the Institution of Civil Engineers: Water Management

"Outstanding coverage of practical engineering applications that is accessible to students."
―John W Davies, Coventry University, UK

"I have found this book to be an ideal standalone reference to the teaching of hydraulics and basic fluid mechanics, as part of engineering undergraduate degree schemes. It is useful, also, in graduate study and applications. "Part II" provides a good overview of hydraulic engineering applications, which does a great job in motivating students to learn and inspiring them with insights of the engineering world."
―Dr William Bonino Rauen, Universidade Positivo, Brazil

HASH(0xa1a02e04) out of 5 stars You can find a better book. Feb. 3 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is my required text for hydraulics. There's not a lot of examples or practice problems. Also difficult to follow what ther're trying to convey. I'm going to have to buy another book to get through this class.
HASH(0xa1a1206c) out of 5 stars ... bought the third edition many years ago and I loved this book Oct. 14 2015

I bought the third edition many years ago and I loved this book. The new edition improves the previous one. Unfortunately, as the authors said, some topics have been excluded in order to keep the book in a limited number of pages. A key topics excluded is water quality, it’s a peaty. However, the authors have done a great work exposing difficult topic for both levels of readers: undergraduate students and professionals.
