Open-Channel Hydraulics, originally published in 1959, deals with the design for flow in open channels and their related structures. Covering both theory and practice, it attempts to bridge the gap that generally exists between the two. Theory is introduced first and is then applied to design problems. In many cases the application of theory is illustrated with practical examples. Theory is frequently simplified by adopting theoretically less rigorous treatments with sound concepts, by avoiding use of advanced mathematical manipulations, or by replacing such manipulations with practical numerical procedures. To facilitate understanding of the subject matter, the treatment is mostly based on the condition of one- or two-dimensional flow. The book deals mainly with American practice but also includes related information from many countries throughout the world. Material is divided into five main sections for an orderly and logical treatment of the subject: Basic Principles. Uniform Flow, Varied Flow, Rapidly Varied Flow, and Unsteady Flow. There are 67 illustrative examples, 282 illustrations, 319 problems, and 810 references. This classic textbook was the first English-language book on the subject in two decades. Open-Channel Hydraulics is a valuable text for students of engineering mechanics. hydraulics. civil. agricultural. sanitary. and mechanical engineering, and a helpful compendium for practicing engineers. Dr. Ven Te Chow was a Professor of Hydraulic Engineering and led the hydraulic engineering research and teaching programs at the University of Illinois. Through many years of experience as a teacher, engineer, researcher, writer. lecturer, and consultant, he became an internationally recognized leader in the fields of hydraulics, hydrology and hydraulic engineering. Dr. Ven Te Chow authored two technical books and more than 60 articles and papers in scientific an engineering magazines and journals. He was a member of lAHR, ASCE, AGU, AAAS, SEE, and Sigma Xi, and had been Chairman of the American Geophysical Union's Permanent Research Committee on Runoff.

This book emphasizes the dynamics of the open channel flow by attempting to provide a complete framework of the basic equation of fluid motion which is used as a building block for the treatment of many practical problems. It provides up-to-date coverage of modern techniques while providing a more rigorous analytical foundation for those who require it. The structure follows a logical progression from a description and classification of open channel flows, through a development of the basic equations of motion for steady and unsteady flow, to an analysis of varied cases of flow.

Open channel hydraulics has always been a very interesting domain of scienti c and engineering activity because of the great importance of water for human l- ing. The free surface ow, which takes place in the oceans, seas and rivers, can be still regarded as one of the most complex physical processes in the environment. The rst source of dif culties is the proper recognition of physical ow processes and their mathematical description. The second one is related to the solution of the derived equations. The equations arising in hydrodynamics are rather comp- cated and, except some much idealized cases, their solution requires application of the numerical methods. For this reason the great progress in open channel ow modeling that took place during last 40 years paralleled the progress in computer technique, informatics and numerical methods. It is well known that even ty- cal hydraulic engineering problems need applications of computer codes. Thus, we witness a rapid development of ready-made packages, which are widely d- seminated and offered for engineers. However, it seems necessary for their users to be familiar with some fundamentals of numerical methods and computational techniques applied for solving the problems of interest. This is helpful for many r- sons. The ready-made packages can be effectively and safely applied on condition that the users know their possibilities and limitations. For instance, such knowledge is indispensable to distinguish in the obtained solutions the effects coming from the considered physical processes and those caused by numerical artifacts.

Designed to serve as a textbook for students pursuing a BTech or BE program in civil engineering, the book aims to impart a clear understanding of the concepts of open channel hydraulics. The book would also be useful for postgraduate students of civil engineering and practising engineers. Beginning with an introductory chapter that classifies the flow into various categories, Flow Through Open Channels describes uniform flow, gradually varied flow, and rapid varied flow in great detail. The subsequent chapters provide a comprehensive coverage of channel transitions, spartially varied flow, and unsteady flow. A simplified introductory description of important topics such as flow in mobile bed channels and pollutant transport in open channels has also been included in the text. Solved examples with emphasis on numerical or approximate methods have been liberally used to explain the practical application of concepts learnt. Practice problems provided have been designed to enable the reader to apply his/her learning to a variety of situations and to urge the reader to think beyond the matter covered in the textbook. The lucid treatment in the book encourages self study and instills working knowledge of hydraulics in a student. Rajesh Srivastava is currently Associate Professor in the Department of Civil Engineering at Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur. He is a gold medalist from the Indian Institute of Technology Roorkee, formerly known as the University of Roorkee, and a Ph.D. from the University of Arizona, USA. He has also served as a research scientist at Soil, Water and Environmental Science Department, University of Arizona, Tucson.
