Continuing its tradition of excellence developed over six previous editions, this seminal Handbook provides a compact, easily accessible source of current data for solving problems in hydraulic engineering. It's packed with essential tables, formulas, computer solutions, and other references needed by practicing engineers. Updating the Sixth Edition published 13 years ago which sold nearly 40,000 copies the Seventh Edition includes a number of valuable new features: computer programs replacing logarithm tables; new chapter on advances in hydraulic using computer technology; metric units used throughout the book.
