This mature textbook brings the fundamentals of fluid mechanics in a concise and mathematically understandable presentation. In the current edition, a section on dissipation and viscous potential flows has been added. Exercises with solutions help to apply the material correctly and promote understanding.

This book is a translation of the original German 11th edition Grundzüge der Strömungslehre by Jürgen Zierep & Karl Bühler, published by Springer Fachmedien Wiesbaden GmbH, part of Springer Nature in 2018. The translation was done with the help of artificial intelligence (machine translation by the service A subsequent human revision was done primarily in terms of content, so that the book will read stylistically differently from a conventional translation. Springer Nature works continuously to further the development of tools for the production of books and on the related technologies to support the authors.

Engineering Mechanics, one of the oldest branches of physical science, is a subject of enormous importance. Although it is taught in the first year of engineering, its foundation is rooted in the two other fundamental subjects i.e., applied mathematics and physics. Basically, Engineering Mechanics is a subject that deals with the action of forces. It is broadly classified under Statics and Dynamics. Statics deals with the action of forces on the rigid bodies at rest whereas dynamics deals with motion characteristics of the bodies when subjected to force. The primary purpose of writing this book is to build basic concepts of engineering mechanics along with strong analytical and problem-solving abilities that would enhance the thinking capability of students. Problems are solved systematically with clear procedure that makes the students feel better in understanding the solution.

Statistics for Engineers and Scientists stands out for its clear presentation of applied statistics. The book takes a practical approach to methods of statistical modeling and data analysis that are most often used in scientific work. This edition features a unique approach highlighted by an engaging writing style that explains difficult concepts clearly, along with the use of contemporary real world data sets, to help motivate students and show direct connections to industry and research. While focusing on practical applications of statistics, the text makes extensive use of examples to motivate fundamental concepts and to develop intuition.

Artificial Neural Network-based Optimized Design of Reinforced Concrete Structures introduces AI-based Lagrange optimization techniques that can enable more rational engineering decisions for concrete structures while conforming to codes of practice. It shows how objective functions including cost, CO2 emissions, and structural weight of concrete structures are optimized either separately or simultaneously while satisfying constraining design conditions using an ANN-based Lagrange algorithm. Any design target can be adopted as an objective function. Many optimized design examples are verified by both conventional structural calculations and big datasets.

Uniquely applies the new powerful tools of AI to concrete structural design and optimization + Multi-objective functions of concrete structures optimized either separately or simultaneously + Design requirements imposed by codes are automatically satisfied by constraining conditions + Heavily illustrated in color with practical design examples.

The book suits undergraduate and graduate students who have an understanding of collegelevel calculus and will be especially beneficial to engineers and contractors who seek to optimize concrete structures.

Ever-increasing population growth has caused a proportional increased demand for water, and existing water sources are depleting day by day. Moreover, with the impact of climate change, the rates of rainfall in many regions have experienced a higher degree of variability. In many cities, government utilities have been struggling to maintain sufficient water for the residents and other users. The Handbook of Irrigation Hydrology and Management: Irrigation Case Studiesexamines and analyzes irrigated ecosystems in which water storage, applications, or drainage volumes are artificially controlled in the landscape and the spatial domain of processes varies from micrometers to tens of kilometers, while the temporal domain spans from seconds to centuries. The continuum science of irrigation hydrology includes the surface, subsurface (unsaturated and groundwater systems), atmospheric, and plant subsystems. Further, the book includes practical case studies from around the world, including locations such as Africa, Australia, China, India, the Middle East, the United States, and more.

Features: Offers water-saving strategies to increase the judicious use of scarce water resources + Presents strategies to maximize agricultural yield per unit of water used for different regions + Compares irrigation methods to offset changing weather patterns and impacts of climate change.
