Urban Hydrology Hydraulics and Stormwater Quality Excerpt :

A practical introduction on today's challenge of controlling and managing the water resources used by and affected by cities and urbanized communities. The book offers an integrated engineering approach, covering the spectrum of urban watershed management, urban hydraulic systems, and overall stormwater management. Each chapter concludes with helpful problems. Solutions Manual available to qualified professors and instructors upon request. Introduces the reader to two popular, non-proprietary computer-modeling pro-grams: HEC-HMS (U.S. Army Corps of Engineers) and SWMM (U.S EPA).

Hydraulics in Civil and Environmental Engineering Fourth Edition Excerpt :

The third edition of this best-selling textbook combines thorough coverage of fundamental theory with a wide ranging treatment of contemporary applications. The chapters on sediment transport, river engineering, wave theory and coastal engineering have been extensively updated, and there is a new chapter on computational modelling. The authors illustrate applications of computer and physical simulation techniques in modern design. The book is an invaluable resource for students and practitioners of civil, environmental, and public health engineering and associated disciplines. It is comprehensive, fully illustrated and contains many worked examples, taking a holistic view of the water cycles, many aspects of which are critical for future sustainable development.

Environmental Hydraulics Excerpt :

Triggerd primarily byill effects of polluted air, soil and water resources on living species, public concern for environmental quality has been growing during the past four decades or so. One manifestation of this concern is found in occurrence of public debates as well as in the demand for full environmental impact assessment before a water-resources project is approved. Engineering soundness and economic feasibility are no longer sufficient criteria for construction of hydraulic works. As a result, environmental considerations have become very much a part of hydraulic analyses. In response to growing environmental concerns, the field of hydraulics has expanded and a new branch, called Environmental Hydraulics, has emerged. The focus of this branch is on hydraulic analyses of those environmental issues that are important for protection, restoration, and managementof environmental quality. The motivation for this book grew out of the desire to provide a hydraulic discussion of some of the key environmental issues.It is hoped that the book would serve to stimulate others to write more comprehensive texts on this subject of growing importance.

Water Resources and Hydraulics Excerpt :

This exciting new textbook introduces the concepts and tools essential for upper-level undergraduate study in water resources and hydraulics. Tailored specifically to fit the length of a typical one-semester course, it will prove a valuable resource to students in civil engineering, water resources engineering, and environmental engineering. It will also serve as a reference textbook for researchers, practicing water engineers, consultants, and managers. The book facilitates students' understanding of both hydrologic analysis and hydraulic design. Example problems are carefully selected and solved clearly in a step-by-step manner, allowing students to follow along and gain mastery of relevant principles and concepts. These examples are comparable in terms of difficulty level and content with the end-of-chapter student exercises, so students will become well equipped to handle relevant problems on their own. Physical phenomena are visualized in engaging photos, annotated equations, graphical illustrations, flowcharts, videos, and tables.

Industrial Hydraulics and Pneumatics Excerpt :

Fluid power now a day’s becoming more popular and acceptable with improvements in various processes due to automation. Branches of fluid power Hydraulic & Pneumatic are gaining more importance in academic as well ass industry. Every diploma engineer must have basic knowledge abut different components of Hydraulic & Pneumatic with their construction working so they must be able to design simple systems as well as carry out maintenance of system. This book based on whole to part approach includes introduction to general layouts of Hydraulic & Pneumatic and then covering each components in detail. Mathematical part is purposefully avoided as it focuses mainly on working and intended for diploma students. Language of description is kept simple and only relevant information has been included. Main contents are Introduction to Hydraulic & Pneumatic Systems, Pumps and Actuators, Control Valves, Compressor, pneumatic components and accessories in fluid system, Oil hydraulic circuits and Pneumatic Circuits. Last part includes Hydro pneumatic applications, Simple Electro circuits, Remedies and fault detection in Pneumatic circuit Maintenance of Hydraulic and pneumatic circuits. Figure/sketches are provided with simple layout so that construction and working can be easily understood. I recommend this book as a text book for course Industrial fluid power or Industrial Hydraulics and Pneumatics mainly included in curriculum of Diploma in Mechanical, Automobile, production Engineering. Technical specifications of components such as pump, compressor, and valves are also mentioned in description like working pressure range, flow rate. It covers almost all the basic components used in fluid power system.

Groundwater Hydraulics and Pollutant Transport Excerpt :

This rigorous and comprehensive text provides fundamental information geared to students in either engineering or natural sciences courses dealing with groundwater. The first four chapters consider subsurface fluid flow, while the remaining twelve chapters cover subsurface contamination and pollutant transport. Charbeneau views the application of groundwater hydraulics and pollutant transport as a quantitative field. Although quantitative methods are exact, the fields of study are usually homogeneous; laboratory and field methods provide estimates for ideal (not real) fields. What impact does the use of ideal fields have on model predictions? The unknown answer places the study of subsurface flow of water and chemical mass transport in a prime position for continued researchand this readily accessible text opens the door to that research. Outstanding features include: Comprehensive, rigorous, and highly accessible coverageIncludes information on groundwater flow, well hydraulics, field methods for parameter estimation, hydrologic relationships between surface water and groundwater hydrology, mass transport of contaminants by advection, diffusion and dispersion, and special problems posed by nonaqueous phase liquids (oils). Strong focus on applicationsEmpowers readers with knowledge and methodologies that they can use in real, day-to-day practices. Includes 66 worked examples and 178 problems integrated throughout. Examination of standard software being used in the industry todayExposes readers to the USGS MODFLOW model (the most widely used numerical simulation model for groundwater flow) and the USGS MOC3D. These models, together with a user interface (MFI), can be downloaded from the Internet.
