Fluvial Processes: 2nd Edition

Featured

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 ...

Experimental Hydraulics: Methods, Instrumentation, Data Processing and Management, Two Volume Set

Featured

Marian Muste, Jochen Aberle, David Admiraal, Robert Ettema, Marcelo H. Garcia, Dennis Lyn, Vladimir Nikora, Colin Rennie
September 14, 2017

This two-volume book is a comprehensive guide to designing, conducting and interpreting experiments in a broad range of topics associated with hydraulic engineering. It is the first substantial effort in hydraulic engineering to assemble in one place descriptions of all the components of experimenta...

Urban Drainage, Fourth Edition

David Butler, Christopher James Digman, Christos Makropoulos, John W. Davies
April 30, 2018

This new edition of a well-established textbook covers the environmental and engineering aspects of the management of rainwater and wastewater in areas of human development. Urban Drainage deals comprehensively not only with the design of new systems, but also the analysis and upgrading of existing...

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...

Practical Channel Hydraulics, 2nd edition: Roughness, Conveyance and Afflux

Donald W. Knight, Caroline Hazlewood, Rob Lamb, Paul G. Samuels, Koji Shiono
March 07, 2018

Practical Channel Hydraulics is a technical guide for estimating flood water levels in rivers using the innovative software known as the Conveyance and Afflux Estimation System (CES-AES). The stand alone software is freely available at HR Wallingford’s website www.river-conveyance.net. The...
