  3. 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...

  5. 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...

  7. Sediment and Contaminant Transport in Surface Waters

    By Wilbert Lick

    Contaminated bottom sediments and their negative impacts on water quality are a major problem in surface waters throughout the United States as well as in many other parts of the world. Even after elimination of the primary contaminant sources, these bottom sediments will be a main source of...
