fundamentalsFundamentals of hydraulic engineering systems (5th ed.)/ R. Houghtalen, A. Akan, H. Hwang. Pearson Education, ©2017, 508 p.

The first half of this edition discusses the fundamentals of fluid statics, dynamics, and flow, giving the reader practical insight into the analysis and design of pipelines, pipe networks, pumps, and open channels. The latter half covers the design of supplemental hydraulic systems, covering some of the most common hydraulic structures such as wells, dams, spillways, culverts, and stilling basins. The book ends with four ancillary topics: water measurement, model studies, hydrology for hydraulic design, and statistical methods in hydrology, as well as common techniques for obtaining hydraulic design flows.
