Overview

Aimed at engineers with a good grounding in hydraulic engineering, this practical reference fills a need for a guide to the design, construction, management and modernisation of canals. It provides an in-depth study of the problems caused by seepage, an analysis of the various possible linings, the constraints posed by canals constructed without linings, and relevant methods of calculation including the calculation of the various structures in the canal, most notably the gates. Ideal for anyone involved in the construction or renovation of canals, this book presents effective maintenance and conservation methods to optimise good management and efficiency.
