Product Overview

The new edition of Pierre Julien's acclaimed textbook brings the subject of sedimentation and erosion completely up to date. The structure of the first edition is essentially unchanged, but all the chapters have been updated, several chapters reworked and expanded significantly. Examples of the new additions include the Modified Einstein Procedure, sediment transport by size fractions, sediment transport of sediment mixtures, the concept of added mass and new solutions to the Einstein Integrals. Many new examples and exercises have been added. Sedimentation and Erosion is an essential textbook for students in civil and environmental engineering as well as the geosciences, and is also valuable as a handbook for researchers and professionals in engineering, the geosciences, and the water sciences.

"...[presents] the mechanics of sediment motion alongside those subjects in fluid mechanics that are fundamental to understanding sediment transport. The interweaving of the two subjects is carried out particularly well ... Each topic is covered clearly, with many carefully designed figures, examples, and exercises excellent primer on both fundamental concepts of sediment transport theory and methods for practical applications ...well written, and nicely illustrated, and it will serve as either a handbook for workers in the field or a textbook for beginning students of the subject. Julien has done a truly admirable job in making ..[a] difficult subject much more accessible to beginning Earth scientists and engineers."

-Jonathan Nelson, Journal of Hydraulic Engineering

"...this well-written text can be equally useful to undergraduates, graduates, geologists, and geophysicists..."Christopher Kendall, The Leading Edge

"...a welcome addition...logically planned out, well written with clear explanations."-R.L. Soulsby, Journal of Fluid Mechanics

"...clearly and concisely written, covers not only the theory but also measurement methods and also provides many worked examples. It will serve well its primary purpose as a textbook for post-graduate courses on erosion and sedimentation...thoroughly recommended."-Ian R. Calder, Hydrology and Earth System Sciences

" excellent and accessible treatment of the 'classic' engineering approach to erosion and sedimentation...a worthy primer for those requiring mastery over the essential technicalities of hydraulic analysis."-Nicholas J. Clifford, Progress in Physical Geography
