This classic handbook is, now more than ever, an indispensable reference for every engineer who wants to save time and effort making accurate hydraulics computations.

The Handbook of Hydraulics is your one-stop answer guide to hydraulics engineering and design. 

The authors have revised and updated this unmatched advisor--converting 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 non-uniform 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

Continuing its tradition 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 technology 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.
