Elements of Water Resources Engineering Book Excerpt:

The Book Conforms To The Modern Concept Of Treating The Diversified Problems Of Water Resources Engineering Through A Multi-Disciplinary And Integrated Approach And Incorporating It In The Educational Curriculum For Effective And Comprehensive Teaching. It Specifically Deals With The Principal Segments Of Water Resources Engineering Which Include Hydrology, Ground Water, Water Management For Irrigation And Power, Flood Control, Engineering Economy In Water Resources Projects For Flood Control, Project Planning In Water Resources, Concrete And Earth Dams.Because Of The Multi-Disciplinary Nature Of Water Resources Engineering Problems, It Is Seldom Possible To Do Full Justice To The Subjects Unless The Teaching Imparts Background Knowledge Of The Allied Disciplines, Viz., Probability And Statistics, Engineering Economics And Systems Engineering. The Book Represents An Attempt To Fulfill This Primal Need.The Book Would Primarily Benefit Students Doing Graduation In Civil Engineering And Those Appearing In Section-B Examination Of The Institution Of Engineers (India).

Water Resources Engineering Risk Assessment Book Excerpt:

Although many theoretical developments have been achieved in recent years, the progress both in understanding and application of risk and reliability analysis in water resources and environmental engineering remains slow. One of the reasons seems to be the lack of training of engineers with phenomena of statistical nature, including optimum cost and benefit decisions under uncertainty. This book presents, in a unified and comprehensive framework, the various aspects of risk and reliability in bothwater quantity and quality problems. The topics covered include uncertainty analysis of water quantity and quality data, stochastic simulation of hydrosystems, decision theory under uncertaintyand case studies. Methods for risk analysis of extremes in hydrology, groundwater clean-up, river and coastal pollution as well as total risk management are presented.

Hydraulic Design in Water Resources Engineering Land Drainage Book Excerpt:

The first International Conference on Hydraulic Design in Water Resources Engineering held at Southampton University in 1984 brought together engineers interested in channels and channel control structures. It was well attended, very successful and generated papers relating to control and diversion structures, sediment control facilities for headworks and intakes, canals under quasi-steady flow conditions, computer simulation of irrigation and drainage canal systems under unsteady flow conditions, and sediment problems in rivers and the effects of engineering works on the regime of rivers. The success of the first meeting was a major factor in deciding to reconvene the Conference in April 1986, also at Southampton University. The second conference is concerned with the design, constructions and operation of land drainage systems and the wealth of papers received for presentation is an indication of how much this subject has developed in the last few decades. The Conference is intended to bring together as much information as possible in the field of Land Drainage together with forecasts of future developments in this important subject. The Proceedings will provide a unique reference and state-of-the-art presentation to all interested in Land Drainage. The Proceedings incorporate the text of a keynote lecture given by W. H. van der Molen, an eminent researcher. His participation added to the prestige of the Conference and the Editors would like to thank him most sincerely for his contribution.

GIS and Geocomputation for Water Resource Science and Engineering Book Excerpt:

GIS and Geocomputation for Water Resource Science and Engineering not only provides a comprehensive introduction to the fundamentals of geographic information systems but also demonstrates how GIS and mathematical models can be integrated to develop spatial decision support systems to support water resources planning, management and engineering. The book uses a hands-on active learning approach to introduce fundamental concepts and numerous case-studies are provided to reinforce learning and demonstrate practical aspects. The benefits and challenges of using GIS in environmental and water resources fields are clearly tackled in this book, demonstrating how these technologies can be used to harness increasingly available digital data to develop spatially-oriented sustainable solutions. In addition to providing a strong grounding on fundamentals, the book also demonstrates how GIS can be combined with traditional physics-based and statistical models as well as information-theoretic tools like neural networks and fuzzy set theory.
