- Civil Engineering Hydraulics : A Handbook Of Methods And Ess
The basic aim of hydraulics is to understand, and control for the benefit of society, the occurrence, movement and use of water, whether it is in lakes, rivers, pipes, drains, percolating through soils or pounding the coastline as destructive waves. To modify the behaviour of water calls inevitably for a large investment of time, resources and effort. Thus hydraulic engineering has only appeared once a society is centralized under an organised government. Hydraulics is often confused with the allied science of fluid mechanics. Good reason for this exists, since a considerable overlap occurs between the two studies. However, fluid mechanics deals with gases, as well as the common liquids, and to most civil engineers a study of gas behaviour is irrelevant to their professional needs. The only reason for studying hydraulics is surely to be able to apply the subject matter to real life problems and that requires, above all else, an overall grasp of the material. This book offers a comprehensive description of the applications of various fields in this subject. The book will be appropriate as a guide for students.
