Water is now at the centre of world attention as never before and more professionals from all walks of life are engaging in careers linked to water - in public water supply and waste treatment, agriculture, irrigation, energy, environment, amenity management, and sustainable development. This book offers an appropriate depth of understanding of basic hydraulics and water resources engineering for those who work with civil engineers and others in the complex world of water resources development, management, and water security. It is simple, practical, and avoids (most of) the maths in traditional textbooks. Lots of excellent `stories' help readers to quickly grasp important water principles and practices.

This third edition is broader in scope and includes new chapters on water resources engineering and water security. Civil engineers may also find it a useful introduction to complement the more rigorous hydraulics textbooks.

"Practical hydraulics gives an excellent introduction to this important field, using the type of language and real-world examples that bring the subject to life. With the mathematical content kept to a minimum, it should appeal to those approaching the subject for the first time, be they undergraduate students or other interested professionals."

-- Grant Wright, Heriot-Watt University, UK

"The book deals with the key issues of water management in a lively and informative way and the writing style engages well with an interested reader. The focus is less on mathematics and more on understanding the key issues"

-- Derek Clarke, University of Southampton, UK

"The book contains many excellent explanations of fundamental hydraulic principles, presented in a way which is understandable to students from many disciplines. Its scope is carefully extended by introducing some of the common hydraulic equations and their uses, in well-constructed examples."

-- Andrew Chadwick, formerly University of Plymouth, UK
