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.

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
