The skills of environmental engineers are becoming increasingly important as we attempt to protect the fragile resources of our planet. Hydraulic analyses are a significant component of water resources studies and the design of hydraulic engineering works. They serve to assess and optimize flow phenomena and their interaction with structures and are also required to determine the dimensions of structures such as dams, weirs, waterways, and stilling basins as well as for the design of pumps and turbines. They define pressures and other required loads for stability analysis of the structures. Water resources engineering is the quantitative study of the hydrologic cycle — the distribution and circulation of water linking the earth’s atmosphere, land and oceans. Surface runoff is measured as the difference between precipitation and abstractions, such as infiltration (which replenishes groundwater flow), surface storage and evaporation. Applications include the management of the urban water supply, the design of urban storm-sewer systems, and flood forecasting. Hydraulic engineering consists of the application of fluid mechanics to water flowing in an isolated environment or in an open channel. Civil engineers are primarily concerned with open channel flow, which is governed by the interdependent interaction between the water and the channel. Applications include the design of hydraulic structures, such as sewage conduits, dams and breakwaters, the management of waterways, such as erosion protection and flood protection, and environmental management, such as prediction of the mixing and transport of pollutants in surface water. The book will be an indispensable source for all professionals, researchers and students in this subject and for anyone working in the related areas for acquiring an up-to-date overviews.
