R1,349 Discovery Miles 13 490 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

How much water does the world need to support growing human populations? What are the potential effects of climate change on the world's water resources? These questions and more are discussed in this thoroughly updated and expanded new edition. Written at the undergraduate level, this accessible textbook covers the fundamentals of water resources, water law, allocation, quality and quantity, health issues, and provides examples of potential personal actions and solutions. There is a keener focus on climate change, as many of the predictions made in the first edition have now come to pass. This new edition features improved artwork, more active learning prompts, more positive examples of beneficial changes, basic introductions to scientific approaches and a discussion of emerging contaminants and LiDAR technology. It contains strong teaching features, with new 'In Depth' and 'Think About It' sections to encourage class discussion, and homework questions to test students' understanding.

Water Resources and Hydraulics (Hardcover): Xixi Wang Water Resources and Hydraulics (Hardcover)
Xixi Wang
R1,750 Discovery Miles 17 500 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

This exciting new textbook introduces the concepts and tools essential for upper-level undergraduate study in water resources and hydraulics. Tailored specifically to fit the length of a typical one-semester course, it will prove a valuable resource to students in civil engineering, water resources engineering, and environmental engineering. It will also serve as a reference textbook for researchers, practicing water engineers, consultants, and managers. The book facilitates students' understanding of both hydrologic analysis and hydraulic design. Example problems are carefully selected and solved clearly in a step-by-step manner, allowing students to follow along and gain mastery of relevant principles and concepts. These examples are comparable in terms of difficulty level and content with the end-of-chapter student exercises, so students will become well equipped to handle relevant problems on their own. Physical phenomena are visualized in engaging photos, annotated equations, graphical illustrations, flowcharts, videos, and tables.

Hydrodynamics of Pumps (Hardcover): Christopher E Brennen Hydrodynamics of Pumps (Hardcover)
Christopher E Brennen
R2,065 Discovery Miles 20 650 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

Hydrodynamics of Pumps is a reference for pump experts and a textbook for advanced students exploring pumps and pump design. This book is about the fluid dynamics of liquid turbomachines, particularly pumps. It focuses on special problems and design issues associated with the flow of liquid through a rotating machine. There are two characteristics of a liquid that lead to problems and cause a significantly different set of concerns than those in gas turbines. These are the potential for cavitation and the high density of liquids, which enhances the possibility of damaging, unsteady flows and forces. The book begins with an introduction to the subject, including cavitation, unsteady flows, and turbomachinery as well as basic pump design and performance principles. Chapter topics include flow features, cavitation parameters and inception, bubble dynamics, cavitation effects on pump performance, and unsteady flows and vibration in pumps discussed in the three final chapters. The book is richly illustrated and includes many practical examples."

Coastal, Estuarial and Harbour Engineer's Reference Book (Hardcover, illustrated edition): Michael B. Abbott, W. Alan Price Coastal, Estuarial and Harbour Engineer's Reference Book (Hardcover, illustrated edition)
Michael B. Abbott, W. Alan Price
R12,202 Discovery Miles 122 020 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

This is a comprehensive work of reference for engineers dealing with the hydraulic problems that occur along coastlines and estuaries and in harbours. This branch of engineering has experienced rapid and profound changes since the 1960s due to the introduction of powerful computer modelling techniques. The book presents concise reviews of key topics on these techniques as well as the traditional civil engineering aspects of design and construction of coastal and maritime works. The powerful tools which are now available for computational and numerical modelling of hydraulic systems have to a considerable extent replaced physical models as the most appropriate means of investigating and selecting economic design options. This development has taken place alongside a greater understanding of the transport processes of granular and cohesive sediments, and an increasing concern with the environmental impact of engineering works. At the design stage, the engineer now commonly has to demonstrate the impact of the proposed works on the natural/watery environment. The chapters are presented under seven main headings: the physical environment; the scientific background; numerical tools and t

Old Waterfront Walls - Management, maintenance and rehabilitation (Hardcover): R.N. Bray, P.F.B. Tatham Old Waterfront Walls - Management, maintenance and rehabilitation (Hardcover)
R.N. Bray, P.F.B. Tatham
R8,859 Discovery Miles 88 590 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

This work provides comprehensive guidance on maintaining old waterfront walls, especially gravity walls constructed with stone masonry, brick blocks or mass concrete. It should be of use to engineers and owners responsible for such structure. Many existing waterfront structures (harbour and dock walls, breakwaters, seawalls, flood defences, skin walls, bridge piers and abutments) are crucial parts of industrial or environmental facilities. Many date back to the 19th century and earlier, and information on their design and construction is often incomplete. They are often massive structures, and the problems of working over or under water and on the buried back of the wall mean that they are difficult and expensive to investigate and maintain, yet they represent substantial capital assets and appropriate management and maintenance are essential. This work draws together a wealth of information and experience on the types of wall that were constructed up to the earlier part of this century. It includes numerous drawings and illustrations of these walls and reviews their performance. It goes on to identify and describe the most suitable techniques available for their inspection, struct

It describes the features of mechanical design of various types of turbines and pumps. The structure of a hydraulic machine is decided primarily to satisfy the need of fluid flow, so hydraulic characteristics of the machines are also stressed. Manufacturing processes of turbines and pumps and their requirements are referred to in chapters on mechanical construction.
