CAIRO BOOKS's Description
This book brings together, and integrates the three principal areas of
environmental engineering water, air, and solid waste management. It introduces
a unique approach by emphasizing the relationship between the principles
observed in natural purification processes and those employed in engineered
systems. First, the physical, chemical, mathematical, and biological principles
that define, measure and quantify environmental quality are described. Next,
the processes by which nature assimilates waste material are discussed and the
natural purification processes that form the basis of engineered systems are
detailed. Finally, the engineering principles and practices involved in the
design and operation of environmental engineering works are covered at length.
Written in a lucid style and offering abundant illustrations and problems, the
book provides a treatment of environmental engineering that can be understood
by a wide range of readers.
