Description - Free-surface Hydraulics by J. M. Townson

Free-Surface Hydraulics is a unified, pragmatic account of the water surface and its underlying mechanics. Based on the author's 30 years experience of research and teaching in civil engineering hydraulics, this text is designed to help students achieve a coherent understanding More...of a subject often obscured by empirical detail and unstructured approaches. The text leads progressively from hydrostatics, through steady and unsteady flows, to waves and tides. The author draws a careful distinction between kinematic and dynamic motions - the latter he treats at some length by the method of characteristics, regarded as one of the more rigorous approaches to unsteady flow. A special feature is the final chapter, devoted to the disruption of free surfaces by air and bubble motion, especially in pipes.
