Since the publication of its first edition in 1999, The Hydraulics of Open Channel Flow has been praised by professionals, academics, students and researchers alike as the most practical modern textbook on open channel flow available.

This new edition includes substantial new material on hydraulic modelling, in particular addressing unsteady open channel flows. There are also many new exercises and projects, including a major new revision assignment.

This innovative textbook contains numerous examples and practical applications, and is fully illustrated with both colour and black and white photographs. Dr Chanson introduces the basic principles of open channel flow and takes readers through the key topics of sediment transport, hydraulic modelling and the design of hydraulic structures.
  • Comprehensive coverage of the basic principles of key application areas of the hydraulics of open channel flow
  • New exercises and examples added to aid understanding
  • Ideal for use by students and lecturers in civil and environmental engineering
Industry Reviews
"This practical and comprehensive textbook covers all aspects of unconstrained water channels such as rivers, wetlands, and canals that have a surface interacting with the atmosphere. The basic principles of fluid mechanics are discussed, and readers later encounter concepts of sediment transport and hydraulic modelling. The concluding chapter introduces the design of hydraulic structures." - Environmental Science and Technology "One special feature of this book is that the author provides numerous worked examples, review questions, and interesting historical notes, as well as a number of ideas that are useful to students and might also spark their interest in the subject. Towards the end of the book is a interesting presentation of several historically important projects. Reading through the book, one cannot miss the tremendous enthusiasm the author has for hydraulic engineering. This book will be useful for undergraduate students and I would recommend it to them. I also think that graduate students and practical engineers will benefit by studying this book." Canadian Journal of Civil Engineering
