The fifth edition of Hydrology in Civil and Environmental Engineering aims to provide comprehensive coverage of civil engineering hydrology in all its aspects and to provide an introduction to the principles of civil engineering in high-pressure environments. For those reading this book for the first time, we hope you enjoy it. You should find enough material to cover most undergraduate courses and advanced degrees and practiceuseful information. References and further reading lists are extensive and suggest further learning.Fifth Edition has been extensively reviewed by a panel of ten experts from around the world. It includes much of the material from previous editions and includes significant updates to the chapters on hydrodynamics, flood hydrology and computational modeling. New material has been added to chapters on hydrostatics, principles of water flow, actual behavior of water, open channel flow, pressure rise in pipes, wave theory, sediment transport, river engineeringand coastal engineering. Includes updated recommendations on climate change projections, impacts and adaptation measures. Due to the size of the book, the chapter on water quality has been removed. Latest references throughout.We are extremely grateful to the individuals and organizations who have contributed to the development of this book through its previous editions.The following colleagues read and commented on various parts of the manuscript: Prof. Anastasiou (Imperial College), uGqr. R. Bettess (HR Cyf., Wallingford), B. G. S. Eliot (Oxford Brookes University), Prof. C. A. Fleming (Director of Marine Engineering, Sir William Halcrow & Ptnrs., Swindon, UK), Prof. G. Fleming (University of Strathclyde), Prof. DA Huntley (University of Plymouth), Dr. D W.Knight (University of Birmingham), Dr. JH Loveless (University of Bristol), Prof. D McDowell (formerly Manchester University), Dr RG Matthew (Bradford University) and Dr G Pender (Glasgow University). Finally, Colin Prior produced most of the line art.The following individuals and organizations have given permission to reproduce photographs and other material in this issue, for which we are grateful:Hydraulics is a very ancient science. The Egyptians and Babylonians built canals for irrigation and defense. At that time no attempt was made to understand the laws of fluid motion. The first notable attempts to correlate pressure type and flow patterns were made by the Greeks. The laws of hydrostatics and buoyancy were explained; Ctesibius and Hero designed hydraulic devices such as piston pumps and water clocks, and of course there was the Archimedes screw pump. The Romans, like the Egyptians, seem to have been more interested in practical and structural hydraulics than theoretical. Therefore, progress continued slowly until the Renaissance, when men such as Leonardo da Vinci began to publish the results of their observations. Concepts that emerged at that time, such as conservation of mass (continuity of flow), frictional resistance and surface wave velocity, are still in use, although sometimes inimproved form. The Italian school became famous for its work. Torricelli et al. He observed how water jets behaved. The path followed by the free jet was compared with projection theory and the jet velocity was related to the square root of the flow-generating pressure. Guglielmini et al. Publish the results of river flow observations. The original meaning of the Italian word was hydraulics, i. I. , most are experienced. Until then, mathematicshad no special role in this kind of scientific work. In fact, mathematics at the time was mostly limited to the principles of geometry, but that was about to change.Many brilliant men appeared in the seventeenth century. Descartes, Pascal, Newton, Boyle, Hooke and Leibnitz laid the foundations of modern mathematics and physics. This enables researchers to see logical patterns in various mechanical properties. On this basis, four great pioneers – Bernoulli, Euler, Claret and d’Alembert – developed the academic discipline of hydrodynamics. He combined a precise mathematical framework with a keen sense of physical phenomena thatrepresented. The eighteenth century saw further progress, both empirically and analytically. In Italy, for example, Pollini investigated the idea of ​​extracting coefficients. However, now French and German intellectuals were on this path. Henri de Pitot invented a device that could measure the speed of movement..
