"This monograph deals with experimental techniques and measurements in open channel flows, over 900 pages. Very few books provide a similar coverage of this subject area. […]
In addition to its value to early-career or non-specialist researchers, volume I of the monograph provides an excellent teaching resource at undergraduate level. Significant effort has been made to ensure that the content in this volume is accessible to readers through an abundance of figures and tables. […]
Experienced researchers are likely to find volume II most helpful in practice. […]
The book is well targeted at readers who need guidance on designing and conducting hydraulic experiments. Despite its practical nature, it provides a broad yet concise introduction to the basic flow physics and theories underlying most hydraulic and fluid dynamics problems. […]
This monograph fills a knowledge gap, covering a most relevant topic and including some of the latest developments in this area. One may argue that there is little coverage on field measurements during natural disasters (floods), air–water free-surface flows, hydraulic structures and unsteady rapidly varied open channel flows. This is true and merely reflects the needs for further specialised monographs on these difficult and specialised topics. The treatment of coastal applications lacks the depth of other topics of interest to hydraulic engineers. However, this monograph achieves its purpose of being an excellent book for graduate students, researchers and engineers in civil engineering interested in open channel flow and measurements, and a very useful reference text for those developing, designing and conducting physical hydraulic experiments."
