Title: Hydraulics of Sediment
Hydraulics of Sediment Transport summarizes the interesting phenomenon of sediment transport into a concise and organized publication. Even though the modern world seems to be ever-changing, in many regions, ancient canals are still in use and are an integral part of the land.
It is divided into 4 parts with a brief introduction preceding each section. Part 1 is a short history of sediment transport; Part 2 deals with the Hydrodynamics of Fluid-Particle Systems; Part 3 is concerned with the Sediment Transport in Open Channels; and Part 4 describes the Sediment Transport in Closed Pipes. This book has been cited in numerous publications, technical papers, articles, and journals. It has withstood the test of time as it continues to be both useful as a textbook and as an excellent reference tool for consulting professionals.This book also summarizes and organizes the knowledge of hydraulics of sediment transport into four parts. Part 1: Short History of Sediment Transport; Part 2: Hydrodynamics of Fluid-Particle Systems; Part 3: Sediment Transport in Open Channels; and Part 4: Sediment Transport in Closed Pipes. Each of these parts are as self-contained as possible. This publication can serve as a textbook for advanced undergraduate and graduate students, and as a reference book for all concerned with this topic. Fourth Printing WRP 2011.
