Understanding Hydraulics: The Design, Analysis, and Engineering of Hydraulic Systems Fundamentals of Hydraulic Engineering Systems bridges the gap between fundamental principles and techniques applied to the design and analysis of hydraulic engineering systems. An extension of fluid mechanics, hydraulics is often more difficult to understand, and experience shows that many engineering students have trouble solving practical problems in hydraulics. The book builds on readers’ problem solving skills by presenting various problem and solution scenarios throughout including effective design procedures, equations, tables and graphs, and helpful computer software. The first half of the Fifth Edition discusses the fundamentals of fluid statics, fluid dynamics, and pipe flow, giving readers practical insight on water flow and pipe design. The latter half dives into water flow and hydraulic systems design, covering some of the most common hydraulic structures such as wells, dams, spillways, culverts, and stilling basins. The book ends with four ancillary topics: measurements, model studies, hydrology for hydraulic design and statistical methods in hydrology, as well as common techniques for obtaining hydraulic design flows.

Entropy Theory in Hydraulic Engineering: An Introduction is the first book to explain the basic concepts of entropy theory from a hydraulic perspective and demonstrate the theory?s application in solving practical engineering problems. In the hydraulic context, entropy is valuable as a way of measuring uncertainty or surprise?or even disorder or chaos?as a type of information. As hydraulic systems become more complex, entropy theory enables hydraulic engineers to quantify uncertainty, determine risk and reliability, estimate parameters, model processes, and design more robust and dependable water hydraulic systems. Drawing on many years of experience applying and teaching hydraulics, Vijay Singh provides a clear introduction to the fundamentals of entropy theory as it has evolved over the past 40 years. He explores its application in five areas important to hydraulic engineers: velocity distributions, sediment concentration and discharge, hydraulic geometry, channel design, and water distribution systems. More than 170 solved examples illustrate these applications, and each chapter concludes with problem sets and plentiful references. By illustrating the power, usefulness, and versatility of entropy theory, this book puts a valuable tool in the hands of practitioners. Graduate students, advanced undergraduates, and their professors will benefit from the lucid explanation of a complex theory and its applications.

This exciting reference text is concerned with fluid power control. It is an ideal reference for the practising engineer and a textbook for advanced courses in fluid power control. In applications in which large forces and/or torques are required, often with a fast response time, oil-hydraulic control systems are essential. They excel in environmentally difficult applications because the drive part can be designed with no electrical components and they almost always have a more competitive power/weight ratio compared to electrically actuated systems. Fluid power systems have the capability to control several parameters, such as pressure, speed, position, and so on, to a high degree of accuracy at high power levels. In practice there are many exciting challenges facing the fluid power engineer, who now must preferably have a broad skill set.
