In this book, Professor Julien provides a thorough analysis of erosion, transport and sedimentation of soil and solid particles by surface waters. The author stresses physical understanding based on Newtonian mechanics, and explains fundamental concepts pertaining to the hydrodynamic forces exerted on solid particles, with a lucid treatment of potential flow, viscous flow, turbulent flow, and boundary layers. The text features a variety of exercises and problems for students and researchers, along with numerous examples and case studies for practicing engineers seeking solutions to real-world problems.
