Computational Hydraulics and Hydrology: An Illustrated by Nicolas G. Adrien

By Nicolas G. Adrien

Computational hydraulics and hydrologic modeling are swiftly constructing fields with a variety of purposes in parts starting from wastewater disposal and stormwater administration to civil and environmental engineering. those fields are filled with promise, however the abundance of literature that now exists includes many new phrases that aren't continuously defined.Computational Hydraulics and Hydrology: An Illustrated Dictionary defines extra that 4,000 easy phrases and words with regards to water conveyance with emphasis on computational hydraulics and hydrologic modeling. Compiled by means of Nicolas G. Adrien, a famous consulting engineer with 3 a long time of expertise, this dictionary contains designated references to genuine modeling experiences, approximately a hundred illustrations, one hundred fifty equations and formulation, and plenty of notations. it's also a bankruptcy of program examples and one other containing greater than 6,000 comparable phrases with a listing of assets the place readers can locate extra definitions.Other dictionaries and glossaries with regards to those parts are typically both dated or a lot narrower in scope. This dictionary bargains large, practice-based assurance of phrases culled at once from the newest texts, references, and real engineering studies. Computational Hydraulics and Hydrology: An Illustrated Dictionary stands on my own in supplying prepared entry to the vocabulary of those matters.

Maintenance, Replacement, and Reliability: Theory and Applications (2nd Edition) (Dekker Mechanical Engineering)

Submit 12 months notice: First released in 1973, first edition

A thoroughly revised and up to date version of a bestseller, upkeep, substitute, and Reliability: conception and functions, moment version offers the instruments wanted for making data-driven actual asset administration judgements.

The well-received first version fast grew to become a mainstay for professors, scholars, and execs, with its transparent presentation of techniques instantly acceptable to real-life occasions. even though, examine is ongoing and constant in just a couple of brief years, a lot has changed.

Fluid- und Thermodynamik: Eine Einführung

Auf der Grundlage eines allgemein verständlichen, beiden Gebieten gemeinsamen Konzepts wird eine Einführung in die Fluid- und Thermodynamik gegeben. Die Fluiddynamik umfaßt die Hydrostatik, die Hydrodynamik der idealen und viskosen Fluide sowie die laminaren und turbulenten Rohrströmungen. In der Thermodynamik werden nach Einführung der Begriffe und der Darstellung der thermischen Zustandsgleichungen idealer Gase der erste und zweite Hauptsatz behandelt, beginnend mit der für adiabate, einfache Systeme gültigen shape nach Caratheodory bis hin zur Bilanzaussage von Clausius Duhem mit Anwendungen auf wärmeleitende viskose Fluide und die kanonischen Zustandsgleichungen.

Example text

Cross connections with storm drains and catch basins are often a source of infiltration/inflow in sanitary sewer systems. See also curb inlet; inlet. Catch drain A diversion channel to intercept water above a road or along a slope. Catchment, drainage area, drainage basin, river basin, or watershed (1) The area of land that drains water, sediment, and dissolved materials to a common outlet at some point along a stream channel (EPA-94/04). (2) The land area that drains into a stream; an area of land that contributes runoff to a specific delivery point.

Also called radial-flow pump. There are two other types of continuous-flow pumps: axial flow and mixed flow. Noncontinuous-flow pumps are called positive displacement pumps. Centroid time of travel See hydraulic residence time. C factor Pipe roughness coefficient used in the Hazen–Williams formulas. CFF Abbreviation for confined filtration facility. CFL stability criterion Courant–Friedrichs–Lewy stability criterion. Same as Courant stability criterion. cfs (or ft3/sec) Abbreviation for cubic foot (feet) per second, a unit of flow equivalent to 1 ft3 in 1 sec; for the measurement of liquids and gases.

Biochemical oxygen demand (BOD) A measure of the quantity of oxygen used in the oxidation of organic matter by microorganisms. Usually, the oxi© 2004 by CRC Press LLC Bioretention 30 Block-centered model dation time and temperature are specified. For example, at 20∞C or 68∞F, the 5-day BOD or BOD5 of an average municipal wastewater is approximately 240 mg/l for a per capita water consumption of 100 gal per day. BOD is distinct from the chemical oxygen demand (COD), which measures the amount of oxygen used for the chemical oxidation of organic matter.
