The papers in this book were presented at the ASCE National Conference on Hydraulic Engineering in August, 1989 at New Orleans, Louisiana. The objective of the Conference was to provide a forum for discussion and exchange of information on issues related to hydraulic engineering. Papers discussing hydraulic structures review their analysis, design, rehabilitation, and upgrading as well as scour and discharge estimates. The hydraulics of sewers, culverts, and other closed conduits are also included. Rough flow in shallow channels, channel stability, unsteady open channel flow, and river mechanics are considered. A number of papers focus on coastal and estuarine systems and processes, the impacts of global climate change, applications of geographic information systems, and probabilistic approaches to hydraulic engineering. Other topics presented include physical hydraulic models, water distribution systems, computational hydraulics, groundwater monitoring and analysis, geostatistics, dam safety, precipitation and droughts, and techniques and issues in urban hydrology.
