Computational Hydraulics in Irregular Channels

The design of land development projects, flood control systems, and water supply or irrigation systems all involve a significant computational effort in the sizing and evaluation of structures to carry the flow of water. Therefore, the use of computer software to solve the most frequently occurring problems will reduce design time expenditure costs and possibly project construction costs due to a more finely tuned design product.

Presented in this book are several FORTRAN computer programs for solving open channel flow hydraulics problems involving steady flow in irregularly shaped channel sections.
