This text is designed to make a deliberate effort to extend the modern fluid mechanics approach into the analysis of open channel flow without necessarily requiring the use of advanced mathematics, except in a few special instances. It is geared towards advanced under- and post-graduate students, practicing engineers, and designers to develop a somewhat more rigorous theoretical approach to the solution of open channel flow problems than those found in similar texts. It is also designed to make increased use of the extensive developments in numerical techniques of solutions that have appeared in the last 20 years.
