"An excellent textbook for water resources engineering and managment studies"
Hydrosystems Engineering and Management
~Originally published from the McGraw-Hill Water Resources and Environmental Engineering Series: ISBN 0-07-041146-8 // 978-0-070411-46-3~
This book is intended to be a textbook for students
of water resources engineering and management.
It is an introduction to methods used in hydrosystems for upper level undergraduate
and graduate students. The material can be presented to students with no background
in operations research and with only an undergraduate background in hydrology
and hydraulics. A major focus is to bring together the use of economics, operations
research, probability and statistics with the use of hydrology, hydraulics,
and water resources for the analysis, design, operation, and management of various
types of water projects. This book is an excellent reference for engineers,
water resource planners, water resource systems analysts, and water managers.
This book is concerned with the mathematical modeling of problems in water project design, analysis, operation, and management. The quantitative methods include: (a) the simulation of various hydrologic and hydraulic processes; (b) the use of operations research, probability and statistics, and economics. Rarely have these methods been integrated in a systematic framework in a single book like Hydrosystems Engineering and Management. An extensive number of example problems are presented for ease in understanding the material. In addition, a large number of end-of-chapter problems are provided for use in homework assignments.
