The second edition of Hydraulics provides all the basic notions of the discipline necessary for those studying Engineering, integrating mathematical treatment with applications and solved exercises. The eleven chapters it consists of cover fluid statics, kinematics and dynamics, physical hydraulic modeling, steady and unsteady flow in pressure conduits, and, introduced in this second edition, potential flows, flows external to bodies, filtration flows, and brief discussions on sediment transport in free-surface flows.

The over 600 color figures that accompany the theorem demonstrations and exercise solutions are essential for learning, as well as the frequent insights (observations, examples, curiosities), the solved exercises at the end of each chapter, and the proposed exercises, whose solutions are available in digital format, along with additional exercises and videos.

The four Appendices are dedicated, respectively, to fluid properties, basic notions of algebra and mass geometry, essential for tackling this discipline, the Reynolds transport theorem, and the global equation of momentum balance.
