9780415386258: Hydraulic Structures, Fourth Edition

Now includes Worked Examples for lectutrers in a companion pdf!

The fourth edition of this volume presents design principles and practical guidance for key hydraulic structures. Fully revised and updated, this new edition contains enhanced texts and sections on:

  • environmental issues and the World Commission on Dams
  • partially saturated soils, small amenity dams, tailing dams, upstream dam face protection and the rehabilitation of embankment dams
  • RCC dams and the upgrading of masonry and concrete dams
  • flow over stepped spillways and scour in plunge pools
  • cavitation, aeration and vibration of gates
  • risk analysis and contingency planning in dam safety
  • small hydroelectric power development and tidal and wave power
  • wave statistics, pipeline stability, wave–structure interaction and coastal modelling
  • computational models in hydraulic engineering.

The book's key topics are explored in two parts - dam engineering and other hydraulic structures – and the text concludes with a chapter on models in hydraulic engineering. Worked numerical examples supplement the main text and extensive lists of references conclude each chapter.

Hydraulic Structures provides advanced students with a solid foundation in the subject and is a useful reference source for researchers, designers and other professionals.
