This book is open access under a CC BY-NC 4.0 license. This revised, updated textbook presents a systems approach to the planning, management, and operation of water resources infrastructure in the environment. Previously published in 2005 by UNESCO and Deltares (Delft Hydraulics at the time), this new edition, written again with contributions from Jery R. Stedinger, Jozef P. M. Dijkman, and Monique T. Villars, is aimed equally at students and professionals. It introduces readers to the concept of viewing issues involving water resources as a system of multiple interacting components and scales. It offers guidelines for initiating and carrying out water resource system planning and management projects. It introduces alternative optimization, simulation, and statistical methods useful for project identification, design, siting, operation and evaluation and for studying post-planning issues. The authors cover both basin-wide and urban water issues and present ways of identifying and evaluating alternatives for addressing multiple-purpose and multi-objective water quantity and quality management challenges. Reinforced with cases studies, exercises, and media supplements throughout, the text is ideal for upper-level undergraduate and graduate courses in water resource planning and management as well as for practicing planners and engineers in the field.

Objectives of the book are meant to fulfill the main learning outcomes for students registered in named courses, which covered the following: - Solving problems in hydrology and making decisions about hydrologic issues that involve uncertainty in data, scant/incomplete data, and the variability of natural materials. - Designing a field experiment to address a hydrologic question. - Evaluating data collection practices in terms of ethics. - Interpret basic hydrological processes such as groundwater flow, water quality issues, water balance and budget at a specific site at local and regional scales based on available geological maps and data sets. - Conceptualizing hydrogeology of a particular area in three dimensions and be able to predict the effects on a system when changes are imposed on it. Learning outcomes are expected to include the following: - Overview of essential concepts encountered in hydrological systems. - Developing a sound understanding of concepts as well as a strong foundation for their application to real-world, in-the-field problem solving. - Acquisition of knowledge by learning new concepts, and properties and characteristics of water. - Cognitive skills through thinking, problem solving and use of experimental work and inferences - Numerical skills through application of knowledge in basic mathematics and supply issues. - Student becomes responsible for their own learning through solution of assignments, laboratory exercises and report writing. "Problem solving in engineering hydrology" is primarily proposed as an addition and a supplementary guide to fundamentals of engineering hydrology. Nevertheless, it can be sourced as a standalone problem solving text in engineering hydrology. The book targets university students and candidates taking first degree courses in any relevant engineering field or related area. The document is valued to have esteemed benefits to postgraduate students and professional engineers and hydrologists. Likewise, it is expected that the book will stimulate problem solving learning and quicken self-teaching. By writing such a script it is hoped that the included worked examples and problems will guarantee that the booklet is a precious asset to student-centered learning. To achieve such objectives immense care was paid to offer solutions to selected problems in a well-defined, clear and discrete layout exercising step-by-step procedure and clarification of the related solution employing vital procedures, methods, approaches, equations, data, figures and calculations. The new edition of the book hosted the incorporation of computer model programs for the different hydrological scenarios and encountered problems presented throughout the book. Developed programs were coded with Microsoft Visual Basic.NET 10 programming language, using Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 Professional Edition. Most of the examples herein have an equivalent code listed alongside through the text. To avoid repetition though, some example programs were omitted whenever there was resemblance to another example elsewhere, to which the reader is kindly requested to refer to.

Practical Channel Hydraulics is a technical guide for estimating flood water levels in rivers using the innovative software known as the Conveyance and Afflux Estimation System (CES-AES). The stand alone software is freely available at HR Wallingford’s website The conveyance engine has also been embedded within industry standard river modelling software such as InfoWorks RS and Flood Modeller Pro. This 2nd Edition has been greatly expanded through the addition of Chapters 6-8, which now supply the background to the Shiono and Knight Method (SKM), upon which the CES-AES is largely based. With the need to estimate river levels more accurately, computational methods are now frequently embedded in flood risk management procedures, as for example in ISO 18320 (‘Determination of the stage-discharge relationship’), in which both the SKM and CES feature. The CES-AES incorporates five main components: A Roughness Adviser, A Conveyance Generator, an Uncertainty Estimator, a Backwater Module and an Afflux Estimator. The SKM provides an alternative approach, solving the governing equation analytically or numerically using Excel, or with the short FORTRAN program provided. Special attention is paid to calculating the distributions of boundary shear stress distributions in channels of different shape, and to appropriate formulations for resistance and drag forces, including those on trees in floodplains. Worked examples are given for flows in a wide range of channel types (size, shape, cover, sinuosity), ranging from small scale laboratory flumes (Q = 2.0 1s-1) to European rivers (~2,000 m3s-1), and large-scale world rivers (> 23,000 m3s-1), a ~ 107 range in discharge. Sites from rivers in the UK, France, China, New Zealand and Ecuador are considered. Topics are introduced initially at a simplified level, and get progressively more complex in later chapters. This book is intended for post graduate level students and practising engineers or hydrologists engaged in flood risk management, as well as those who may simply just wish to learn more about modelling flows in rivers.

The fourth volume of Developments in Hydraulic Engineering follows the pattern set by the previous three volumes, in that individual chapters give an authoritative and comprehensive review of subject areas within hydraulic engineering. Each chapter is written by an author or authors active in the subject and who have contributed to its development. The first chapter on lake hydraulics deals with physical limnology of large lakes in a comprehensive discussion of processes forming the background of the ecological, engineering and economics role of lakes. The second chapter, on tidal power generation, reviews all modes of operation on the scheme, its optimisation, generating equipment and construction methods. The third chapter discusses the physical basis of multiphase (two and three phase) flows in porous media with application in hydraulic and geotechnical engineering and the oil industry. The next chapter deals with the important topic of groundwater flow and pollution transport in fractured rock aquifers with emphasis on the deterministic modelling of the flow field. The fifth chapter, on groundwater modelling, discusses the use of mathematical models and emphasises situations where the three-dimensional time variant character of the groundwater flow cannot be ignored. The last chapter on groundwater development, after a brief revision of well hydraulics, concentrates on the practical engineering and construction aspects of groundwater development and protection. All chapters contain a substantial list of references.

In order to manage the world's increasingly scarce water resources we must have a sound understanding of how water moves around the planet and what influences water quality. Fundamentals of Hydrology provides an engaging and comprehensive introduction to this subject and provides real-life examples of water resource management in a changing world. The second edition of this popular book brings the text up-to-date with additional case studies and diagrams and a greater synthesis of water quality with physical hydrology. The chapters on runoff and evaporation have been updated and the final chapter on hydrology in a changing world has more material on water resource management strategies. Additionally the chapter on streamflow analysis now includes a more in-depth section on modelling runoff. The book begins with a comprehensive coverage of precipitation, evaporation, water stored in the ground and as snow and ice, and runoff. These physical hydrological processes show with respect to the fundamental knowledge about the process, its measurement and estimation and how it ties in with water quality. Following this is a section on analyzing streamflow data, including using computer models and combining hydrology and ecology for in-stream flow assessment. A chapter on water quality shows how to measure and estimate it in a variable environment and finishes with a section on pollution treatment. The final chapter brings the text together to discuss water resource management andreal-life issues that are faced by hydrologists in a constantly changing world. Fundamentals of Hydrology is a lively and accessible introduction to the study of hydrology at university level. This new edition continues to provide an understanding of hydrological processes, knowledge of the techniques used to assess water resources and an up-to-date overview of water resource management in a changing world. Throughout the text, wide-ranging examples and case studies are used to clearly explain ideas and methods. Short chapter summaries, essay questions, guides to further reading and a glossary are also included.
