This text provides an exceptionally thorough treatment of environmental engineering. Through clear, straightforward writing, the authors provide incisive and insightful coverage while approaching the subject matter in a direct analytical manner. The text makes use of many practical, hands-on examples throughout to realistically demonstrate the applied nature of the field.
Features and Benefits
Presents a no-nonsense, analytical approach to environmental engineering, avoiding qualitative and blanket statements. This approach results in optimum accuracy, and gives students a better sense of the proper analytical tools that must be used to practice environmental engineering.
Complete coverage of the applications of chemical reactions is included to allow the fullest possible understanding of a number of relevant processes such as wastewater treatment, decomposition in a landfill, composting, and burning fuel.
Exceptionally practical, realistic examples are included throughout the text, clearly illustrating principles and concepts at work while demonstrating the applied nature of the discipline.
Provides a unified approach to the concept of settling, treating the settling of air and of water together - giving students a clearer understanding that the process is the same in both mediums.
Treats surface water, subsurface water, and air quality modeling as part of the concept of conservation of mass. The fundamental concept in modeling is simply the conservation of mass, so this approach reflects the clearest, most logical grouping of these types of modeling.
