Book Summary:

Exposes You to Current Industry-Standard Tools Open channel flow is covered in essentially all civil and environmental engineering programs, usually by final-year undergraduate or graduate students studying water resources. Fundamentals of Open Channel Flow outlines current theory along with clear and fully solved examples that illustrate the concepts and are geared to a first course in open channel flow. It highlights the practical computational tools students can use to solve problems, such as spreadsheet applications and the HEC-RAS program. It assumes a foundation in fluid mechanics, then adopts a deliberately logical sequence through energy, momentum, friction, gradually varied flow (first qualitative, then quantitative), and the basics of sediment transport. Taps into Your Innate Ability to Understand Complex Concepts Visually Open channel flow can be understood through just a few simple equations, graphs, and computational tools. For students, the book comes with downloadable animations that illustrate basic concepts visually with synchronous graphical presentation of fundamental relationships. For instructors, PowerPoint slides and solutions to end-of-chapter problems are provided. Delivers simple but powerful software animations Conveys material in three ways (analytical, graphical, computational/empirical) to aid multiple types of learners and improve overall accessibility Includes new fundamental equation for alternate depths Discusses flow transients supported by animations and calculations Emphasizes applications of common and useful computational tools Developed by an author who has been teaching open channel flow to university students for the past fifteen years, Fundamentals of Open Channel Flow provides you with a detailed explanation of the basics of open channel flow using examples and animation, and offers expert guidance on the practical application of graphical and computational tools.

Book Summary:

OPEN CHANNEL DESIGN A fundamental knowledge of flow in open channels is essential for the planning and design of systems to manage water resources. Open channel design has applications within many fields, including civil engineering, agriculture, hydrology, geomorphology, sedimentology, environmental fluid and sediment dynamics and river engineering. Open Channel Design: Fundamentals and Applications covers permissible velocity, tractive force, and regime theory design methodologies and applications. Hydraulic structures for flow control and measurement are covered. Flow profiles and their design implications are covered. Sediment transport mechanics and moveable boundaries in channels are introduced. Finally, a brief treatment of the St. Venant equations and Navier-Stokes equations are introduced as topics to be explored in more advanced courses. The central goal is to prepare students for work in engineering offices where they will be involved with aspects of land development and related consulting work. Students will also be prepared for advanced courses that will involve computational fluid dynamics approaches for solving 2-d and 3-d problems in advanced graduate level courses. Offering a fresh approach, Open Channel Design: Fundamentals and Applications prepares students for work in engineering offices where they will be involved with aspects of land development and related consulting work. It also introduces the reader to software packages including Mathematica, HecRas and HY8, all widely used in professional settings.

Book Summary:

The design of a highway drainage channel to carry a given discharge is accomplished in two parts. The first part of the design involves the computation of a channel section which will carry the design discharge on the available slope. This chapter briefly discusses the principles of flow in open channels and the use of the Manning equation for computing the channel capacity. The second part of the design is the determination of the degree of protection required to prevent erosion in the drainage channel. This can be done by computing the velocity in the channel at the design discharge, using the Manning equation, and comparing the calculated velocity with that permissible for the type of channel lining used. A change in the type of channel lining will require a change in channel size unless both linings have the same roughness coefficient.

Book Summary:

Primarily intended as a textbook for the undergraduate and postgraduate students of civil engineering, this book provides a comprehensive knowledge in open channel flow. The book starts with the concept of open channel flow, types of forces acting on the flow, types of channel flow, velocity distribution and coefficients, and basic continuity in 1D and 3D. Then it moves on to steady gradually varied flow, its differential equation, hydraulics of alluvialchannel, design of channel and hydraulic jump. Finally, the text concludes with Saint-Venant equations and its solutions by few numerical methods in flood routing and dam-break situations. KEY FEATURES : Includes computer programs for steady gradually varied flow Provides various numerical methods of solving the equations Explains dam-break problem in detail Contains numerous solved examples
