About

Overview

With its comprehensive coverage of hydraulics and hydrology in a non-calculus format, the Fourth Edition of INTRODUCTION TO HYDRAULICS & HYDROLOGY continues the same straightforward, practical approach that has made previous editions such a valuable tool for both students and professionals in the field. Designed to provide readers with an understanding of the concepts of hydraulics and surface water hydrology as they are used in everyday practice, this edition contains multiple opportunities for practice and real-world applications that are relevant to civil engineering, land developing, public works, and land surveying. Coverage includes topics such as the history of water engineering, basic concepts of computation and design, principles of hydrostatics and hydrodynamics, open channel flow, unit hydrographs, and rainfall, runoff, and routing. Up-to-date, clearly solved examples are included throughout the book to help students understand how concepts apply in the real-world.

Features and Benefits

  • Examples and case studies, plus an extensive appendix containing samples of actual design charts, add a real-world dimension to problem solving.
  • Both the Modified Rational Method and the NRCS Method of runoff calculation are described in detail, with examples of each method provided for readers.
  • Topographic mapping enables readers to relate information to real-life situations and practice crucial skills such as delineating drainage areas.
  • The stormwater management software is identified in an appendix for readers who want to use the power of computers to solve engineering problems, whether those in the book or ones of their own design.

Design-Build Essentials  (ISBN-10: 1428353038 | ISBN-13: 9781428353039)

From a leading authority in the design-build movement, this practical, multi-disciplinary guide brings you all of the fundamentals that constructors, architects, and engineers must understand in order to mitigate risks, optimize results, and be successful in the design-build arena. Design-Build Essentials is truly a design-builder’s resource. It addresses the fact that design-build requires the unique integration of both design and construction functions by featuring input from all of the various players associated with delivering a design-build project. Opening with an introduction to the industry and fundamental distinctions of design-build, the book progresses to cover managing the design-build process, the integrated design build team, and concludes with a look at the future of the industry.
