About the book

Advances in Computational Hydraulics: From Theory to Applications, will review the advances made during the last 10-15 years in fields related to theory and modeling of free surface flows along with related evolving multi-disciplinary applications. Recent advances in computational hydraulics and visualization tools have opened new windows of opportunities for modeling flow scenarios that for various reasons was not possible earlier.

These advances can range across developing efficient numerical algorithms for solving the flow equations, benchmark performance of new and established models, modeling of one, two, and three-dimensional flows, validation and verification methods, simulation case studies, integration of surface water models with groundwater, and climate change models.

The book seeks to provide both the researchers and practicing engineers with insights into the latest computational paradigms relating to computational hydraulics. This book will be an appropriate forum for experts from different disciplines to share their ongoing work. The target audience includes numerical modelers, hydraulic software developers, mathematicians, urban infrastructure designers, and water resources policy decision-makers.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Marina Dusevic

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
