Cintia Bertacchi Uvo
Summary, in English
This textbook aims to provide a comprehensible introduction to Engineering Hydrology for environmental engineering students. The book comprises of 8 chapters which provide a holistic view of hydrology, seen as the water transport in nature with human influence, and deal with the main hydrological systems and processes. Each chapter ends with a few engineering examples together with a discussion of calculation methods, followed by further engineering problems. The book has been compiled from earlier hydrology textbooks from the Department of Water Resources Engineering at LTH, Lund University, Sweden. The most important contributions are from Lars Anderberg (“Kort introduktion till hydrologi”) and Rolf Larsson (“Övningsexempelsamling avsett för Väg&vatten-byggnadsingenjörer vid LTH”).
