Description - Water Resources Engineering by Larry W. Mays

With a remarkable range and depth of coverage, Professor Mays;
internationally recognised for his highly acclaimed textbooks and
work in the field; presents a straight forward, easy to understand
presentation of hydraulic and hydrologic processes using the
control volume approach. These processes are then extended into
practical applications for water use and water excess, including
water distribution systems, stormwater control, and flood storage
systems.
Water Resources Engineering is a textbook that can be
used for the first undergraduate courses in hydraulics, hydrology,
or water resources engineering and for upper level undergraduate
and graduate courses in water resources engineering design.
This text is also intended as a reference for practicing
hydraulic engineers, civil engineers, mechanical engineers,
environmental engineers, and hydrologists.
