Your one-stop answer guide to hydraulics engineering and design. Turn to Handbook of Hydraulics, Seventh Edition, for the tables, formulas, computer applications, and other resources you need to design and engineer virtually any hydraulic system. Bringing Ernest F. Brater and Horace W. King's last edition into the 21st century, James E. Lindell and C.Y. Wei have revised and updated this unmatched advisor--coverting all constants to metric units-to give you powerful solutions governing: Viscosity, surface tension, and elasticity; fluid pressures and hydraulic forces; laminar, turbulent, steady, and unsteady flows; oscillatory, breaking, and wind-generated waves plus shore erosion control' flow through orifice gates, tubes, weirs, and pipes; uniform and nonuniform flow in open channels; high-velocity transitions through straight-walled, enlargement, and curved-wall constrictions; unsteady open channel and spatially variable flow; flow measurement with meters, pilot tubes, venture flumes, and other devices; computer-based numerical methods; much more. The definitive reference: Now completely updated to reflect the latest advances in hydraulic engineering Continuing its traditon of excellence as the standard reference on hydraulics for more than 75 years, this seminal work has been thoroughly revised and updated to help practicing engineers solve hydraulic engineering problems well into the next century. Packed with current and dependable data, tables, formulas, and other crucial information that generations of professionals have come to rely on, the Seventh Edition contains many valuable new features, including: An extensive listing of computer software programs--over 150 in all--to help speed computations, analyses, and solutions of modern hydraulic engineering problems. Included is a description of each program's capabilities, availability, and cost. General discussion of the ways in which computer techonology is playing an increasingly important role in solving problems related to unsteady flow in open channels and conduits. . .pipe networks. . .spillways. . .sediment transport. . .shallow surface water. . .water quality. . .reservoir dynamics. . .hydrodynamic transport in rivers. . .coastal hydraulics. . .flow through porous media. . .hydraulic turbine units and draft tubes. . .and much more. Conversion to metric units throughout. . .many updated numerical examples showing applications to real-world problems. . .and a wealth of key analytical background material. This classic handbook is, now more than ever, an indispensible reference for every engineer who wants to save time and effort making accurate hydraulics computations.
