Elements of Water Resources Engineering
The Book Conforms To The Modern Concept Of Treating The Diversified Problems Of Water Resources Engineering Through A Multi-Disciplinary And Integrated Approach And Incorporating It In The Educational Curriculum For Effective And Comprehensive Teaching. It Specifically Deals With The Principal Segments Of Water Resources Engineering Which Include Hydrology, Ground Water, Water Management For Irrigation And Power, Flood Control, Engineering Economy In Water Resources Projects For Flood Control, Project Planning In Water Resources, Concrete And Earth Dams.Because Of The Multi-Disciplinary Nature Of Water Resources Engineering Problems, It Is Seldom Possible To Do Full Justice To The Subjects Unless The Teaching Imparts Background Knowledge Of The Allied Disciplines, Viz., Probability And Statistics, Engineering Economics And Systems Engineering. The Book Represents An Attempt To Fulfill This Primal Need.The Book Would Primarily Benefit Students Doing Graduation In Civil Engineering And Those Appearing In Section-B Examination Of The Institution Of Engineers (India). Besides, Some Of The Topics Covered In The Book Would Also Be Of Much Use By Post-Graduate Students In Water Resources Engineering.
