Flow and Sediment Transport in Compound Channels
This Monograph on Flow and sediment transport in compound channels' offers a state-of-the-art review based on the experience of research teams from Japan and UK. References: Flood modelling is challenging to the hydraulic engineering community: the human, social and environmental impact of flooding rivers is considerable; while the flow complexity and related uncertainties makes it hard to model accurately. Significant progress has been made on this complex topic during the last two decades, with major contributions by research teams from Japan and UK. The present monograph on “Flow and Sediment Transport in Compound Channels” offers a state-of-the-art review based on this experience. The authors deserve acknowledgement, as their work will help new researchers approaching this fascinating problem, but also facilitate improved engineering approaches to inundations. Dr. D.
