As its title suggests, this dictionary deals with water: water in relation to engineering projects designed to utilize it, to control it, or to defend us against it; water as a basic element of our environment, and water as the subject of a variety of physical phenomena. Accordingly, the coverage is both comprehensive and wide, encompassing the following:
Water: physical properties and phenomena; hydraulics, hydrodynamics and hydrostatics; waves and tides; hydrology, fluvial hydraulics and groundwater flow; geomorphology and sediment transport; selected terms on hydrography and limnology.
Hydraulic Engineering: aspects of design, construction, operation and maintenance; river engineering, dams and reservoirs; coastal engineering and marine technology; flood control, dikes and barriers; waterways, locks and weirs, canals; hydraulic aspects of tunnels and bridges; harbours, breakwaters and navigation facilities; dredging and bed protection; pumps, turbines and water power; circuits, pipelines and appurtenances.
Water Management: water supply, irrigation and agricultural engineering; water quality, waste-water and cooling-water; drainage and groundwater works.
Experimental Aspects: scale modelling and testing methods; measuring methods and instruments, hydrometry.

Drs. N. Smit-Kroes, Minister of Transport and Public Works for The Netherlands
Hydraulic engineering is traditionally a typical Dutch discipline. Since the Middle Ages, the Dutch have been carrying out extensive dredging, draining and reclamation works at home and abroad.... It is very gratifying then to be able to introduce such a dictionary, compiled by a co-worker at one of the most prominent institutes of hydraulic engineering research, Delft Hydraulics. It will undoubtedly find its way onto the bookshelves of all those involved in the design, construction and management of hydraulic-engineering projects all over the world.
from the Preface
...can be fully recommended as a useful reference book to university and research institutes libraries, engineering firms and translators..
