Loose boundary hydraulics is concerned with the interaction of fluids with the erodible material of their confining boundaries. The physical principles involved apply to a wide range of natural and industrial processes: from soil erosion to transport of sediments by streams and rivers, from materials handling to mineral dressing. For this third edition, a new introduction provides an overview of the subject's scope and applications. Chapters dealing with sediment transport, erosion and deposition, and coastal sediment movement are either totally new or have been completely rewritten, while the treatment of sediment properties has been substantially modified and updated. Much of the illustrative matter is also new or revised. A comprehensive index and thorough, up-to-date literature coverage (with more than 750 references) are provided.
