Abstract: This proceedings, Hydraulic Engineering, contains papers presented at the 1993 National Conference on Hydraulic Engineering held in San Francisco, California, July 25-30, 1993. The basic theme of these papers in the reduction of man-made and natural disasters through hydraulic engineering. It covers such topics as: 1) Disaster and hazard reduction; 2) wetland and tidal hydraulics; 3) mechanics of debris flows; 4) sediment transport; 5) bridge scour; 6) three-dimensional flow modeling; 7) computational hydraulics; 8) California water issues; and 9) probabilistic approaches to hydraulics. Engineers who are involved with these hydraulic engineering issues will find this proceedings an excellent source of information.
