CAIRO BOOKS's Description
A comprehensive treatment of open channel flow, Open Channel Flow: Numerical
Methods and Computer Applications starts with basic principles and gradually
advances to complete problems involving systems of channels with branches,
controls, and outflows/ inflows that require the simultaneous solutions of
systems of nonlinear algebraic equations coupled with differential equations.
The book includes a CD that contains a program that solves all types of simple
open channel flow problems, the source programs described in the text, the
executable elements of these programs, the TK-Solver and MathCad programs, and
the equivalent MATLAB ® scripts and functions.
The book provides applied numerical methods in an appendix and also
incorporates them as an integral component of the methodology in setting up and
solving the governing equations. Packed with examples, the book includes
problems at the end of each chapter that give readers experience in applying
the principles and often expand upon the methodologies use in the text. The
author uses Fortran as the software to supply the computer instruction but
covers math software packages such as MathCad, TK-Solver, MATLAB, and
spreadsheets so that readers can use the instruments with which they are the
most familiar. He emphasizes the basic principles of conservation of mass,
energy, and momentum, helping readers achieve true mastery of this important
subject, rather than just learn routine techniques.
With the enhanced understanding of the fundamental principles of fluid
mechanics provided by this book, readers can then apply these principles to the
solution of complex real-world problems. The book supplies the knowledge tools
necessary to analyze and design economical and properly performing conveyance
systems. Thus not only is the book useful for graduate students, but it also
provides professional engineers the expertise and knowledge to design well
performing and economical channel systems.
