Authored by: Brian E Whitman and Thomas Walski

Computer Applications in Hydraulic Engineering (CAiHE) is a book designed to supplement a water resources and hydraulic engineering textbook with a focus for how  software is used to analyze and design hydrologic and hydraulic systems, as well as a comprehensive learning tool for upper-level undergraduate students and practicing engineers. Linking hydraulic theory with real-world applications, CAiHE focuses on problem-solving skills and computer modeling of open channel and pressure pipe flow including culvert analysis and pumping systems, the design and analysis of storm and sanitary sewers, water distribution network design and analysis including transients and water quality, and stormwater management with Low Impact Development strategies. Readers are introduced to the modeling power of the latest software with access to continuously updated tutorials found in the Bentley Systems website. The text explains the theory and equations on which the software is based, and each chapter includes several problems for the reader to practice their problem-solving and modeling skills.
