The third edition of this classic text combines thorough coverage of fundamental theory with a wide ranging treatment of contemporary real-world applications. It is one of Spon's bestselling textbooks. The chapters on sediment transport, river engineering, wave theory and coastal engineering have been extensively up-dated and there is a new chapter on computational modelling. The authors illustrate application of computational and physical simulation techniques in modern design. The book is an invaluable resource for students and practioners of civil environmental and public health engineering and associated disciplines. It is carefully structured in two parts to deal with principles before moving on to more advanced topics. It is comprehensive, fully illustrated and contains many worked examples. It takes a holistic view of the water cycle, many aspects of which are critical for future sustainable development.
