Books Name: Civil Engineering Hydraulics
Author/Writer:R.E. Featherstone & C. Nalluri
Hydraulics is one of the major subjects in civil engineering undergraduate and post graduate course. It is one of toughest subjects. Often ,students get scared of this subject as huge mathematical problems are associated with this subject and they are often hard to realize.
Civil Engineering Hydraulics is a very good book for learning hydraulics related to civil engineering. The theories and problems are well demonstrated and solved.
Chapter-1: Properties of Fluids
Chapter-3: Fluid Flow Concepts and Measurements
Chapter-4: Flow of Incompressible Fluids in Pipelines
Chapter-5: Pipe Network Analysis
Chapter-6: Pump-pipeline System Analysis and Design
Chapter-7: Boundary Layers on Flat Plates and in Ducts
Chapter-8: Steady Flow in Open Channels
Chapter-9: Dimensional Analysis,Siumilitude and Hydraulic Models
Chapter-10: Ideal Fluid and Curvilinear Flow
Chapter-11: Gradually Varied Unsteady Flow from Reservoirs
Chapter-12: Mass Oscillations and Pressure Transients in Pipelines
Chapter-13: Unsteady Flow in Channels
Chapter-14: Uniform Flow in Loose-Boundary Channels
The main aspect of this book is there is a lot of worked problems related to hydraulics. Channel flow including steady and unsteady one are also discussed.Different ideal fluids and their functions and characteristics are also demonstrated.
