Andrew Chadwick is a visiting professor at the University of Plymouth, UK, and former Professor of Coastal Engineering at the University of the West Indies, Trinidad. John Morfett was head of hydraulics research and taught at the University of Brighton, UK. Martin Borthwick is a senior lecturer at the University of Plymouth, UK, and teaches hydraulics, hydrology, and water resources.
This book is an excellent standalone reference for education in the field of hydraulics and fundamentals of fluid mechanics. The book gives theoretical considerations and encourages students to learn by inspiring them with insights into the real world of engineering. The book is also useful for practical engineers, providing a good overview of realistic hydraulic engineering problems and their solutions. -Miroslav Marence, Proceedings of the Institution of Civil Engineers: Water Management Outstanding coverage of practical engineering applications that is accessible to students. -John W Davies, Coventry University, UK I have found this book to be an ideal standalone reference to the teaching of hydraulics and basic fluid mechanics, as part of engineering undergraduate degree schemes. It is useful, also, in graduate study and applications. Part II provides a good overview of hydraulic engineering applications, which does a great job in motivating students to learn and inspiring them with insights of the engineering world. -Dr William Bonino Rauen, Universidade Positivo, Brazil
