by Andrew L. Simon




Exceptionally broad in coverage, practical in focus, and non-calculus-based in approach, this introduction to hydraulics features an abundance of example problems worked in detail and a wide variety of number, conceptual, and real-life integrated problems for hands-on practice. Features a new chapter on Coastal Hydraulics. Combines field measurements and modeling into a new chapter on Hydraulic Data Gathering. Incorporates (mainly in footnotes) historical information. Eliminates all computer programs from the book.
