Overview

Prakash has 45-plus years of experience working as a water resources engineer and consultant on hydrologic and hydraulic projects throughout the world. Written for consulting engineers with a bachelors degree in engineering or applied science and some professional experience, and graduate students training to enter the consulting industry, his text covers methods and equations applicable to situations with various levels of data availability, particularly where available site-specific information is inadequate. The emphasis is on solving practical problems with a minimum literature search, and applying theoretical equations to real-world conditions. Requires knowledge of fundamental hydraulics, fluid mechanics, and hydrology, and access to standard texts on these subjects. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
