Overview

On the one hand, the book closes the gap between applied civil engineering hydraulics books and standard fluid mechanics works; on the other hand, it is designed as a course that can be applied modularly. The goal is to present the facts in an understandable and descriptive way and with experiments, software, and materials that are available anywhere. This is an open access book.

Author Information

Dr. Christoph Rapp was a research associate at the Chair of Hydraulics and Hydrology and later the Department of Hydromechanics at the Technical University of Munich. He was head of the laboratory there after receiving his doctorate. In addition to experimental research into complex flows, he devoted himself to illustrative teaching. He received several prizes for this, including the Ernst Otto Fischer Teaching Prize for an innovative teaching concept. In the context of his collaboration with Markus Heinsdorff, he inspires with installation art on the subject of water. He is head of the hydropower department of an energy supplier and lectures at Bauhaus University, Weimar. He also currently teaches at universities in developing countries through the International Knowledge Exchange Association, which he founded (Verein zur Förderung des internationalen Wissensaustauschs e.V.).
