The American Society of Civil Engineer’s (ASCE) new publication, Water Engineering with the Spreadsheet: A Workbook for Water Resources Calculations Using Excel, by Ashok Pandit, gives students a solid foundation in using spreadsheets for water engineering applications. Pandit presents 90 problems, easy and difficult, that cover fluid mechanics, hydraulics, hydrology, and stormwater management. The print edition comes with a CD-ROM with unlocked spreadsheets that provide hands-on experience with Excel. The e-book edition is accompanied by a downloadable .zip file for the Excel files.

Topics covered include force calculations under static and dynamic conditions, pipe design, and pipe network analysis; open channel flow; normal and critical depth calculations; channel designs and transitions; lake evaporation; unit hydrographs and S-hydrographs; convolution and deconvolution; reservoir and channel routing; and analysis and design of stormwater management systems for land development. This workbook prepares students for the fundamentals of water engineering and exams; practitioners will also find the ready-to-use spreadsheets convenient for professional practice.
