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 to succeed.”
-- Dr. Don J. Wood, Professor and Director Civil Engineering Software Center, University of Kentucky, Lexington, KY

“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).”
-- Dr. John W. Nicklow, P.E., P.H., Assoc. Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Southern Illinois University at Carbondale, IL

“The book is an excellent book. Each chapter contains information that I’m looking for. I’m going to use it to prepare my comprehensive exam. It's a very good handbook and text book. Thanks again.”
-- Jeanne Huang, Doctorate Student, University of Guelph, Canada

"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 possible recommendation."
-- Paul D. Romano, P.E., Senior Managing Engineer, Shumaker Consulting Engineering and Land Surveying, P.C., Utica, NY

"I got a copy of your new book. It would have been nice to have the book 20 years ago. Nicely written…"
