Control the impact of cohesive sediments on open channels by managing the effects of silt, clay and other sediments in harbors, estuaries and reservoirs. Cohesive Sediments in Open Channels provides you with a practical framework for understanding how cohesive sediments are transported, deposited and eroded. One of the first books to approach the subject from an engineering’s perspective, this book supplies insight into applying hydraulic design as well as understanding the behavior of cohesive sediments in a flow field. Properties and of the nature and the origin of the interparticle physicochemical forces The forces between clay particles and the process of flocculation Processes and dynamics of flocculation and the hydrodynamic behavior of cohesive sediments Transport processes of sediments by flowing water and related equations are first presented and explained Deposition and resuspension of beds deposited from suspension from flowing waters Engineering applications of the hydraulics of cohesive sediments
This book is divided into four parts: Part 1 is entitled "A Short History of Sediment Transport"; Part 2 deals with the "Hydrodynamics of Fluid-Particle Systems"; Part 3 is concerned with the "Sediment Transport in Open Channels"; and Part 4 describes the "Sediment Transport in Closed Pipes." The intent of this book was to make each part as self-contained as possible which has made this an exceptional and successful textbook. The brief introduction preceding each part will help the reader become familiar with the topic. This book has been used successfully both as a classroom textbook and as a reference book by consultants involved with sediment transport.
Comprehensive text on the fundamentals of modeling flow and sediment transport in rivers treating both physical principles and numerical methods for various degrees of complexity. Includes 1-D, 2-D (both depth- and width-averaged) and 3-D models, as well as the integration and coupling of these models. Contains a broad selection

The book is intended for advanced undergraduates and first-year graduate students in the general fields of water resources and environmental engineering. It offers a selective presentation of some of the most common problems encountered by practicing engineers with the inclusion of recent research advances and personal computer applications.
Designed to serve as a textbook for students pursuing a BTech or BE program in civil engineering, the book aims to impart a clear understanding of the concepts of open channel hydraulics. The book would also be useful for postgraduate students of civil engineering and practising engineers. Beginning with an introductory chapter that classifies the flow into various categories, Flow Through Open Channels describes uniform flow, gradually varied flow, and rapid varied flow in great detail. The subsequent chapters provide a comprehensive coverage of channel transitions, spartially varied flow, and unsteady flow. A simplified introductory description of important topics such as flow in mobile bed channels and pollutant transport in open channels has also been included in the text. Solved examples with emphasis on numerical or approximate methods have been liberally used to explain the practical application of concepts learnt. Practice problems provided have been designed to enable the reader to apply his/her learning to a variety of situations and to urge the reader to think beyond the matter covered in the textbook. The lucid treatment in the book encourages self study and instills working knowledge of hydraulics in a student.
