Fundamentals of Wastewater Treatment and Engineering Rumana Riffat George Washington University, Washington, D.C., USA

As the world’s population has increased, sources of clean water have decreased, shifting the focus toward pollution reduction and control. Disposal of wastes and wastewater without treatment is no longer an option. Fundamentals of Wastewater Treatment and Engineering introduces students to the essential concepts of wastewater treatment and the engineering design of unit processes for the sustainable treatment of municipal wastewater. The book first covers history, current practices, emerging concerns, and pertinent regulations, including U.S. EPA and international standards. It then examines the basic principles of reaction kinetics, reactor design, and environmental microbiology, along with natural purification processes. Exploring the fundamental concepts of sustainable wastewater treatment, it uses the concept of mass balance to develop models applicable to various unit processes. The text details the design of unit processes for primary, secondary, and advanced treatment as well as solids processing and removal. Solutions manual available upon qualifying course adoption

Fundamental Mechanics of Fluids Fourth Edition I.G. Currie University of Toronto, Ontario, Canada

“Currie’s book is unique in that it covers more topics than usual but the coverage is sufficiently concise to keep the book from becoming a giant one. In doing so, the students are not lost in the details and are kept engaged.”

—Mohamed Gad-el-Hak, Virginia Commonwealth University

“This book is very systematically and clearly presented. ... It is a well-structured book and it provides the fundamental knowledge and materials … .” —Yitung Chen, University of Nevada Las Vegas

Fundamental Mechanics of Fluids, Fourth Edition is an introductory text that starts with the basics of fluid mechanics and then moves to specialized areas such as ideal-fluid flow and boundary-layer theory. The book identifies the phenomena associated with the various properties of compressible, viscous fluids in unsteady, three-dimensional flow situations. It provides techniques for solving specific types of fluid-flow problems, and it covers the derivation of the basic equations governing the laminar flow of Newtonian fluids—first assessing general situations and then shifting focus to more specific scenarios. The author illustrates the process of finding solutions to the governing equations. In the process, he reveals both the mathematical methodology and physical phenomena involved in each category of flow situation, which include ideal, viscous, and compressible fluids.
