About this item

This guide to computational modeling and simulation in hydraulic and coastal engineering is for advanced undergraduates and graduate students, in addition to coastal and maritime engineers, environmental engineers, civil engineers, and those working in computer modeling and hydrogeology. The guide focuses on applications of the finite differences method in areas such as measurement of groundwater movement and reservoir storage management. Opening chapters deal with mathematical modeling, numerical treatment of ordinary differential equations, and partial differential equations. Later chapters cover pressurized flows, free surface flows, surface gravity waves, groundwater flow, and mass transport. Examples and code are given in MATLAB. Color charts are included. The companion web site contains 30 computer programs in MATLAB R2012b; programs are written for novices rather than experts. Readers should have some background in hydro-dynamics, wave mechanics, differential equations, numerical analysis, and computer programing using common languages such as MATLAB, C, or BASIC.
