Fundamentals of Hydraulic Engineering Systems 4e

Fundamentals of Hydraulic Engineering Systems 4th Edition PDF Download Ebook. Robert J. Houghtalen provides elementary treatment of engineering hydraulics. It is supposed to bridge the hole between basic ideas and strategies applied to design and evaluation of hydraulic engineering systems.

Designed to bridge the gap between basic ideas and the techniques applied to the design and analysis of hydraulic engineering techniques, this text exposes college students to many issues commonly encountered in practice, numerous solution eventualities (e.g., design formulas, tables, and computer software program) that are written by one of many largest industrial vendors of hydrology and hydraulics software.

It's a very useful reference for practicing engineers who wish to review basic ideas and their applications in hydraulic engineering systems. This elementary therapy of engineering hydraulics balances theory with practical design solutions to common engineering problems.

The writer examines the commonest topics in hydraulics, together with hydrostatics, pipe flow, pipelines, pipe networks, pumps, open channel flow, hydraulic buildings, water measurement units, and hydraulic similitude and model studies. Chapters devoted to groundwater, deterministic hydrology, and statistical hydrology make this text preferred for courses designed to cover hydraulics and hydrology in one semester.

Robert J. Houghtalen, Ph.D., P.E., is Professor and Head of the Civil Engineering Department at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology in Terre Haute, Indiana. Dr. Houghtalen specializes in the areas of hydrology, hydraulics, and stormwater management. He has taught national seminars for ASCE on a number of computer models including HEC-HMS, HEC-RAS, and EPA-SWMM.
