Coverage includes topics such as the history of water engineering, basic concepts of computation and design, principles of hydrostatics and hydrodynamics, open channel flow, unit hydrographs, and rainfall, runoff, and routing. Up-to-date, clearly solved examples are included throughout the book to help readers understand how concepts apply in the real-world
