Fluvial Processes: 2nd Edition


Ana Maria Ferreira da Silva, M. Selim Yalin
August 8, 2017

A stream flowing in alluvium deforms its bed surface, forming ripples, dunes, bars, etc., and, in many instances, it deforms its channel entirely, thereby creating meandering or braiding patterns. It could be said that, in general, an alluvial stream and its deformable boundary undergo a variety of ...

Vehicle Feedback and Driver Situation Awareness

Guy H. Walker, Neville A. Stanton, Paul M. Salmon
April 17, 2018

A potentially troubling aspect of modern vehicle design – some would argue - is a trend towards isolating the driver and reducing vehicle feedback, usually in the name of comfort and refinement but increasingly because of automation. There can be little doubt cars have become more civilised over...

Coastal Engineering, Third Edition: Processes, Theory and Design Practice

Dominic Reeve, Andrew Chadwick, Christopher Fleming
April 09, 2018

Effective coastal engineering is expensive, but it is not as costly as neglect or ineffective intervention. Good practice needs to be based on sound principles, but theoretical work and modelling also need to be well grounded in practice, which is continuously evolving. Conceptual and detailed...
