Building up on the legacy of Vito Vanoni: Volume 2 of Manual 54 "Sedimentation Engineering"

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Under the leadership of Professor Vito Vanoni, the first edition of Manual 54 "Sedimentation Engineering" was published by ASCE in 1975. This volume became the main reference in the field of sedimentation in the United States and worldwide. Substantial progress has been made in the field for the last 25 years to warrant the preparation of a second volume of Manual 54, which would complement the outstanding original one. A Task Committee has been working since 1990 to bring Volume 2 of Manual 54 to completion. The motivation for preparing it and the chapters included in the new volume are presented in this paper. Professor Vanoni set up a standard that will be both difficult to reach and hard to emulate. The companion volume builds up on Vito Vanoni's legacy, reflecting his keen interest in understanding the mechanics of sediment transport as well as his love for the field of sedimentation engineering.
