Second Edition of the Practical Hydraulics Handbook is a must for all
those who work with water utility systems. Presented in workbook format
and emphasizing practical applications, this Handbook is perfect for
hydraulic engineers, technicians, operating personnel, supervisors,
managers, consultants, and students.
The exceptionally well-organized chapters include information on
pressurized systems and open channel flow, principles of energy and
force, flow calculations and measurement, pumps, and pumping
This latest edition of the Practical Hydraulics Handbook includes new
exercises at the end of each chapter and detailed solutions to selected
exercises. The well-chosen exercises allow readers to practice
applications of the theory and to test their knowledge of the material.
The solutions provide guidance and problem-solving techniques that can
be used both in the field and in the lab. Reference tables are also
provided for calculations of friction loss, velocity, pipe fullness,
well drawdown, English/metric conversions, power, and metered flow.
These tables make calculations easier and minimize the chance for error.
In this new edition of Practical Hydraulics Handbook, all of the major
principles and calculations dealing with the hydraulics of water systems
are covered, and new and expanded material has been added.
