Presents fundamental principles and applications of river engineering, stressing the close interrelation between river engineering and fluvial processes. The author integrates river engineering principles with river hydraulics and fluvial geomorphology, providing engineers interested in water supply, channel design, bridge design, flood control, river regulation, irrigation, navigation improvement, and environmental science with a comprehensive, system perspective. Specific topics covered include river flow, river channel formation, the physical characteristics of rivers, responses of rivers to natural and man-made changes, and analytical methods of design and evaluation.
