Fundamentals of Wastewater Treatment and Engineering

Peter Domone

Rumana Riffat

Their Nature and Behaviour, Fourth Edition

University College London, UK

John Illston Retired Engineer, UK

“Some of the civil engineering and architecture schools, however, now have less dedicated courses in materials and a significant part of the required materials knowledge is provided within other courses. A textbook such as this will hence not only be useful as a reference book for a number of these courses, but will also be helpful in providing a unified perspective to students learning about materials under these conditions.” —D. Gunaratnam, Architectural Science Review

The twenty–first century has brought much growth in our understanding of materials’ behavior and in their technology and use. This new edition has been expanded to cover recent developments such as the use of glass as a structural material. It also examines the contribution that material selection makes to sustainable construction practice, considering the availability of raw materials, production, recycling and reuse. The new edition maintains the predecessor’s familiar and accessible format, starting with fundamental principles and continuing with a section on each of the major groups of materials, including metals, concrete, ceramics, polymers, fiber composites, bituminous materials, timber, and glass.

“The authors have written an outstanding and timely work.”

Modelling is a vital part of all engineering design, yet many hydraulic engineers are not fully aware of the assumptions involved in the process. These assumptions can have important consequences when choosing the best model to inform design decisions. This book helps identify the most appropriate form of analysis for the hydraulic engineering application in question. The book also provides guidance on the range of accuracy to be expected of the model simulations and how they should be related to the prototype. Applications to models include open channel systems, closed conduit flows, storm drainage systems, estuaries, coastal and nearshore structures, and hydraulic structures.

Probability, Statistics, and Reliability for Engineers and Scientists

A First Course in Differential Equations, Modeling, and Simulation

Third Edition

Carlos A. Smith and Scott W. Campbell

Bilal M. Ayyub and Richard H. McCuen University of Maryland, College Park, USA

University of South Florida, Tampa, USA

This third edition of a bestseller presents probability, statistics, reliability, and risk methods with an ideal balance of theory and applications. It places increased emphasis on simulation, particularly as a modeling tool. This edition also features expanded discussions of the analysis of variance and a thorough treatment of Monte Carlo simulation. The authors not only clearly establish the limitations, advantages, and disadvantages of each method, but also show that data analysis is a continuum rather than the isolated application of different methods.

Emphasizing a practical approach for engineers and scientists, this text avoids overly theoretical explanations and shows readers how differential equations are derived by applying basic physical principles and experimental observations to engineering systems. This resource also covers classical methods for obtaining the analytical solution of differential equations and Laplace transforms. In addition, the authors discuss how these equations describe mathematical systems and how to use software to solve sets of equations in which analytical solutions cannot be determined. Numerical values are provided in all examples and problems.
