This book presents new concepts to design urban channels with considerations of multiple land uses and multiple design events such as: Blending urban channels into urban greenbelts and parks for the purposes of recreations and sports. On top of theories and concepts, numerous practical design examples are presented using a systematic approach to integrate multiple purposes to design the waterway and its floodplains.

This book also applies the green concept to urban channel designs. All channels to be designed with considerations of wetlands, greenbelts, water-front parks, and recreational open space with bike paths and sport fields. All hydraulic structures across the floodplain need to achieve the hydraulic goals, and also to accommodate recreational purposes such as rafting, kayaking, and wild life habitats. As always, urban channel shall be designed to be the assets to better the urban life, and as the major infrastructure to improves the quality of water environment.

This book is an excellent textbook and resource for senior designers in Civil Engineering, Water Resources, Hydraulic and Hydrologic Engineering, and a useful technical reference for water-related projects in Public Works and Urban Infrastructure. Examples are presented with calculation details and procedures using EXCEL Spread Sheet Approach.
