  1. Modelling for Coastal Hydraulics and Engineering

    By K. W. Chau

    Mechanistic models are often employed to simulate processes in coastal environments. However, these predictive tools are highly specialized, involve certain assumptions and limitations, and can be manipulated only by experienced engineers who have a thorough understanding of the underlying...

  2. An approach to medium-term coastal morphological modelling

    UNESCO-IHE PhD Thesis

    By Giles Lesser

    This thesis presents the implementation of fully three-dimensional sediment transport and morphological updating formulations within a proven three-dimensional hydrodynamic flow solver. The thesis briefly discusses the formulations used to model both suspended and bed-load transport of non-cohesive...

  3. Fuzzy Logic and Hydrological Modeling

    By Zekai Sen

    The hydrological sciences typically present grey or fuzzy information, making them quite messy and a choice challenge for fuzzy logic application. Providing readers with the first book to cover fuzzy logic modeling as it relates to water science, the author takes an approach that incorporates...

  6. Risk and Reliability

    Coastal and Hydraulic Engineering

    By Dominic Reeve

    Risk and Reliability: Coastal and Hydraulic Engineering sets out the methods which are increasingly being required by Government Agencies for river and sea defence design and flood defence system management. And it shows how to describe uncertainty in the performance of flood and erosion defences....

  7. Applied Hydrodynamics

    An Introduction to Ideal and Real Fluid Flows

    By Hubert Chanson

    Fluid dynamics is the engineering science dealing with forces and energies generated by fluids in motion. Fluid dynamics and hydrodynamics play a vital role in everyday life. Practical examples include the flow motion in the kitchen sink, the exhaust fan above the stove, and the air conditioning...

  8. Dams in Japan

    Past, Present and Future

    Edited by Japan Commission on Large Dams - JCOLD

    Overview of Japan’s long water history, by the Japanese Commission on large dams. Starting from the 7th century, when irrigation ponds were first constructed for paddy cropping, until the beginning of the 21st century. Elaborates on various roles of dams: water supply, power generation and flood...

  9. Salt Intrusion, Tides and Mixing in Multi-Channel Estuaries

    PhD: UNESCO-IHE Institute, Delft

    By Anh Duc Nguyen

    Multi-channel estuaries, such as the Mekong Delta in Vietnam and the Scheldt in the Netherlands, have characteristics of both the river and the sea, forming a unique environment influenced by tidal movements of the sea and freshwater flow of the river. This study addresses a number of knowledge...

  10. Flood Risk Management: Research and Practice

    Extended Abstracts Volume (332 pages) + full paper CD-ROM (1772 pages)

    Edited by Paul Samuels, Stephen Huntington, William Allsop, Jackie Harrop

    Floods cause distress and damage wherever and whenever they happen. Flooding from rivers, estuaries and the sea threatens many millions of people worldwide and economic and insurance losses from flooding have increased significantly since 1990. Across the European Union, flood management policy is...
