    • Introduces theory gradually developed from basic physics and geometry
    • Contains a number of well-thought-out graphical illustrations
    • Includes several worked examples, highlighting the significance of the theory in tackling problems of practical importance

    A solutions manual and electronic versions of figures from the book are available with qualifying course adoption.


    Provides a Balance between the Mathematical and Physical Aspects and the Engineering Applications

    Written for engineering and science students, Mechanics of Groundwater in Porous Media explains groundwater from both a mathematical and qualitative standpoint. The book builds up the theory of groundwater flow starting from basic physics and geometric intuition, and on to applied practice through real-world engineering problems. It includes graphical illustrations as well as solved illustrative problems throughout the text.

    Considers the Steady-State Motion of Groundwater

    The book starts off by introducing the overall picture of groundwater, its relationship with the hydrological cycle, and other terminology used in the mechanics of groundwater flow though porous means. It presents a synopsis of basic definitions, concepts, and the fundamental principles of fluid mechanics and soil mechanics, which are necessary prerequisites for an adequate understanding of the book’s core material. The engineering applications are deducted from geometric and physical reasoning, with a minimum use of mathematical abstraction.

    Mechanics of Groundwater in Porous Media is written primarily to serve as a textbook for senior undergraduate and upper-level graduate students in civil and environmental engineering, environmental science, hydrogeology, and geology, as well as a resource for practicing engineers.
