Introduction to Urban Water Distribution
by N. Trifunovic

Focusing primarily on understanding the steady-state hydraulics that form the basis of hydraulic design and computer modelling applied in water distribution, Introduction to Urban Water Distribution covers the general principles and practices of water distribution in a straightforward way.

Features of Introduction to Urban Water Distribution:

  • Provides understanding of basic concepts without going deep into the complex theory behind them
  • Contains more than 500 figures including drawings, photos, and computer printouts
  • Contains many worked examples, workshop problems, and the design exercise tutorial
  • Contains a CD with developed electronic materials: over 40 spreadsheet hydraulic lessons and computer model used for the design exercise done with EPANET programs
