This book provides essential information on the higher mathematical level of approximation over the gradually varied flow theory, also referred to as the Boussinesq-type theory. In this context, it presents higher order flow equations, together with their applications in a broad range of pertinent engineering and environmental problems, including open channel, groundwater, and granular material flows.

"This is the first free surface hydraulics book dedicated to Boussinesq's theory since Boussinesq's 1877 book. The book contains a clear presentation of basic theoretical aspects. It is carefully illustrated and edited. ... Non-hydrostatic free surface flows is a valuable addition to the literature, containing information that will be of great interest for students, researchers and professors working in open channel hydraulics."
