Flow In Open Channels by K Subramanya covers the topics of Open Channel Hydraulics that are covered in both the undergraduate and also the postgraduate levels in Indian colleges and varsities. The contents in this edition have been revised. The revised content includes negative surges in rapidly varied unsteady flow and backwater curves in natural channels and some more topics such as flow through culverts, discharge estimation in compound channels, and scour at bridge constrictions. The first chapter deals with the Flow in open channels and the second chapter is about energy-depth relationships. Uniform flow, gradually varied flow theory, and gradually varied flow computations follow these chapters. Chapters six and seven deal with the theory of rapidly varying flows and hydraulic jumps. Spatially varied flow and super-critical flow transitions are discussed in chapters eight and nine. The topics conclude with unsteady flows and hydraulics of mobile bed channels that comprise chapter ten and eleven. There are solved problems at the end of every chapter along with questions that have multiple choice answers. K Subramanya is the author of books like Fluid Mechanics, Hydraulic Machines Problems And Solutions, and Engineering Hydrology.
