Hydraulic Manual,
9th edition

In 1987 Prof. Azevedo Netto   honored me with the intention of helping him update and continue his Hydraulic Manual, so useful in Brazilian engineering, with thousands of copies sold since the first edition, in 1954, over 60 years!

Without risk of dispute, it can be said that it is the best-selling engineering book in Brazil. 

In conversations and meetings with Prof. Azevedo Netto for the making of the then 8th edition, his desire was clear that he would assume the task of, through periodic updates and improvements, and with co-authors who, in the future would choose other partners, if he sought to perpetuate the work.

Among the guidelines transmitted by prof. Azevedo Netto, I well remember the emphasis that, without prejudice to academic use in teaching engineering students, the book should be, above all, a Hydraulics Manual, for use by professionals in their day-to-day work as engineers at work. throughout your life.
