Description

"This book integrates the fundamental principles related to wastewater treatment plant design and operation with an extensive set of design examples emphasizing the issues that engineering professionals are likely to face in the field. It is one of the most valuable books for wastewater treatment plant design—equally useful to students, educators, and practicing engineers."

—Syed A. Hashsham,Michigan State University, USA

 

"This book provides an excellent overview of critical concepts needed to solve many environmental challenges in the twenty-first century. It includes solved examples needed to understand critical concepts and contains many topics relevant to addressing water sustainability."

—Ramesh Goel, University of Utah, USA

 

Wastewater Treatment and Reuse: Theory and Design Examples presents a state-of-the-art, integrated approach to all aspects of wastewater treatment and reuse. It covers a wide-range of topics from public health protection and regulatory requirements to coverage of facility planning, design, and implementation. A unique feature of the book is a collection of over 700 illustrative theory and design examples and in-depth solutions that provide readers deep understanding of current and advanced technologies in wastewater treatment and reuse.

The book serves as a consolidated resource on emerging treatment technologies, new research developments, and future trends suitable for sustainable economic growth. It addresses the needs of students, educators, consultants, researchers, and other professionals who are involved in planning, design, review, permitting, and enforcement of wastewater treatment and reuse facilities.

Features:

  • Includes an exceptional collection of step-by-step procedures to apply and design various components of wastewater treatment facilities
  • Provides a cross-section of simple-to-advanced numerical examples and solutions that enhance the readers’ comprehension and deeper understanding of the basic concepts
  • Serves as an excellent learning tool to master the problem-solving techniques needed for professional engineering (PE) exams
  • An invaluable, hands-on resource for both beginning and experienced professionals for use throughout their careers

 

Reviews

"A focused design textbook with the right balance of fundamentals and design examples."

—Krishna R Pagilla, University of Nevada, Reno, USA

"…covers almost all aspects of wastewater treatment, from collection to treatment and reuse, from conventional treatment processes to advanced treatment processes, and from theory and fundamentals to design examples. All chapters and topics are well aligned with the synopsis of the book in serial order. Instructors might have flexibility to choose certain topics selectively to best deliver coherent message in a course."

—Hyeok Choi, The University of Texas at Arlington, USA

"This book by Qasim and Zhu integrates the fundamental principles related to wastewater treatment plant design and operation with an extensive set of design examples emphasizing the issues that engineering professionals are likely to face in the field. Besides providing a coverage of the main processes and unit operations, the book also presents critically needed information about nutrient and resource recovery, disposal, reuse, instrumentation, retrofitting, and advanced wastewater treatment processes. It is one of the most valuable books for wastewater treatment plant design – equally useful to students, educators, and practicing engineers."
