One of 4 volumes from the Proceedings of the International Conference
on Water, Environment, Ecology, Socio-economics and Health Engineering
The papers contained in this book represent one part of the conference
contributions. The other parts are embodied in three separate companion books
entitled, Hydrologic Modeling, Environmental Modeling, and Water Resources Planning
and Management, which are being published simultaneously. Arrangement of the contributions
in these books under four different titles was a natural consequence of the diversity
of topics presented in the papers. These books can be treated almost independently,
although considerable interconnectedness exists amongst them.
This book contains four sections encompassing major aspects
of environmental hydraulic modeling. Beginning a discussion of
turbulent flow in the first section, the papers go on to discuss
channel flow modeling in Section 2, scour and sedimentation in
Section 3, and pollutant transport in Section 4.
The book will be of interest to researchers as well as to those
engaged in practice of agricultural engineering, civil engineering,
environmental engineering, ecological engineering, earth sciences,
forest resources, hydrology, and water resources. Graduate students
as well as those wishing to conduct research in hydraulics, hydrology,
environment and water resources will find this book to be of value.
