Sediment Transport: Monitoring, Modeling and Management $240.00
Editors: Abdul A. Khan and Weiming Wu (Glenn Department of Civil Engineering, Clemson University, Clemson, SC, USA, and others)
Book Description:
This book provides a broad perspective of sediment transport in rivers, reservoirs, estuaries, and coastal areas. It deals with the related fundamentals of sediment transport, computational modeling of cohesive and non-cohesive sediments transport, and sedimentation engineering management. Topics include river morphological changes after dam removal, local scour and its monitoring, marsh edge erosion, turbidity dynamics in a bay surrounded by marshes, effects of harbor construction on hydrodynamic and morphodynamic processes in a coastal area, and impact of climate change on sediment yield from a watershed, are discussed. The breath of the topics covered will be of interest to researchers and practicing engineers alike. This book contains twelve chapters. (Imprint: Nova)
