Theory, analysis and methods of computations of gradually varied flow.
Hydraulic jump; gradually varied and rapidly varied unsteady flow.
Hydraulic structures for on-farm application and use in energy dissipation and special applications.
Extensive practices on different aspects covered in the theory.
