Handbook of Hydraulics, Eighth Edition

by: James E. Lindell, Wade P. Moore, Horace W. King


Abstract: Fully updated hydraulics engineering concepts, methods, and practices. Marking its 100th anniversary, this thoroughly revised resource offers comprehensive coverage of every aspect of hydraulics. Handbook of Hydraulics, Eighth Edition, features the latest data and computational modeling techniques and clearly explains cutting-edge methods, processes, and technologies. You will get more than 80 dependable tables and graphs, sample equations, and real-world examples. This single source for on-the-job hydraulic engineering information will save time and ensure accuracy in performing hydraulic calculations. Coverage includes: • Fluid properties and hydraulic units • Hydrostatics • Fundamental concepts of fluid flow • Orifices, gates, and tubes • Weirs • Pipes • Steady uniform flow in open channels • Open channels with nonuniform flow • High-velocity transitions • Wave motion and forces • Spatially variable and unsteady flow • Measurement of flowing water • Computational hydraulics • Physical and mathematical modeling of hydraulic structures

Authors:

James E. Lindell is Senior Vice President Emeritus at MWH, now part of Stantec. He was formerly Chief Hydraulic Engineer at Harza Engineering and Editor in Chief of the seventh edition of Handbook of Hydraulics. He has been a member of the Civil Engineering faculty at the University of Notre Dame and a visiting lecturer at the University of Illinois at Chicago and Northwestern University.

Wade P. Moore is a Senior Hydraulic Engineer at Stantec. He specializes in the application of advanced techniques, including computational fluid dynamics (CFD), to the analysis and design of hydraulic structures. He made significant contributions to the seventh edition of Handbook of Hydraulics.

Horace W. King (deceased) was the author of the original edition of Handbook of Hydraulics, published in 1918, and was also Professor of Hydraulics at the University of Michigan.
