Revised from cover to cover, this monumental Handbook reflects the rapid changes that have revolutionized the field & fully documents the tremendous influence of such dynamic changes as the correlation of field & laboratory testing programs, new design methods, & new materials, as well as new information on environmental concerns. Twelve sections are completely new to this edition; the remaining 16 sections have been condensed & updated to reflect current practice. And more tables & illustrations have been included than in previous editions. More than 34 experts have pooled their expertise to provide a complete handbook of the highest standards. They provide examples of many actual projects & emphasize coordination of field measurements of actual prototype behavior with theoretical analysis. Written for the practicing engineer, the book is organized in the same order that is usually followed in making regional plans for water use & control. Coverage ranges from basic hydraulics, reservoir hydraulics, & natura
