Book Description: Hydraulic Structures provides a comprehensive introduction in the structural aspects of hydraulics. This book provides a solid foundation in structural hydraulics for students as they continue towards their Civil Engineering certification. Hydraulic Structures demonstrates to the advanced undergraduate student the design of hydraulic structures in practice. It does this by explaining dam engineering, the design and construction of embankments, dam outlet works, hydroelectric power development and pumping stations. It also contains worked examples to help the reader comprehend the structural processes involved. This newly updated edition also contains new and expanded subject matter on strength and compressibility, air transport tunnels, dam-break analysis and coastal engineering. Hydraulic Structures will provide both advanced students and practising engineers with a solid reference in Structural Hydraulics.
