The single, go-to resource for water distribution engineering.
This comprehensive 660-page instructional textbook covers everything
students, professional engineers, managers, modelers, health
department officials, government agencies, consultants, researchers
and GIS professionals need to know about how to reliably construct,
load, and calibrate systems and use rigorous network models
to optimize system planning, design, and complex operational
activities. Topics range from in-depth coverage of basic network
flow theory and dynamic water quality assessment to sophisticated
transient flow and pressure calculations.
Written by world-renowned industry experts, Comprehensive
Water Distribution Systems Analysis Handbook For Engineers and
Planners covers the latest in theoretical scientific foundations,
advanced technological issues, and real-world network analysis
and optimization applications supported by extensive
modeling exercises. Focused on bridging the gap between advanced
modeling theory and practical application, the book includes
over 100 worked out example problems, detailed hydraulic principles,
and step-by-step guidance that walks readers through the complete
modeling process from start to successful finish and interpretation
of results. It features in-depth examinations of state-of-the-art
network modeling and optimization techniques, explores the most
current knowledge and technologies, and provides the detailed
explanations needed to become a master modeler.
The book is arranged into ten chapters and is written using
both SI and US customary units. Its objective is to present
the basic principles of water distribution engineering and management
and the application of these principles to solving practical,
real-life problems. The book can be used to teach water distribution
modeling at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, as well
as an excellent reference for any water utility professional
and engineering consultant.
This is definitely
a must-have reference textbook. Comprehensive Water Distribution
Systems Analysis Handbook For Engineers and Planners provides
excellent coverage of all important aspects of network modeling
and analysis in incredible technical detail. It is filled
with solved problems and practical guidance designed to keep
students and modeling professionals engaged, stimulated, and
empowered to acquire the state-of-the-art knowledge they need

In terms of water distribution,
this is the most thorough text available for the practicing
professional. No kidding; I'm really impressed by the topics
covered. The numerous solved problems give the reader the
added benefit of seeing and understanding the application
of theoretical presentations. It's also great to see so many
important realistic topics that are closely associated with
the traditional hydraulics aspect of distribution, but are
often not covered in water distribution texts (e.g., water
quality, master planning, optimization, and even the depth
of discussion on hydraulic transients).

The book is an excellent book.
Each chapter contains information that Im looking for.
Im going to use it to prepare my comprehensive exam.
It's a very good handbook and text book. Thanks again.

"Comprehensive Water Distribution
Systems Analysis Handbook For Engineers and Planners is
a great resource for professionals involved in all aspects
of water distribution systems management. It provides an excellent
coverage from basic hydraulic concepts to the latest technologies,
along with practical examples in a methodic, easy to grasp
language. I found it an extremely useful guide to water systems
modeling, planning, design and operation. I give it my highest
