Unit processes comprise the components of a treatment train used to remove contaminants from water. An understanding of these processes provides the foundation for continued learning and for designing treatment systems. The principles of unit processes also apply to ambient environmental contexts, such as transport of groundwater contaminants and stream pollution. Unit process theory is one of the core areas of an environmental engineering curriculum, and is important for the design of water treatment systems. This text provides grounding in the underlying principles of unit processes in a comprehensive approach that links theory to practice, suitable for a two-semester environmental engineering course.
Suitable for a two-semester course, this text provides the grounding in the underlying principles of each unit process that students need to link theory to practice. It covers approaches that are common to all unit processes and principles that characterize each unit process. Integrating theory into algorithms for practice, Professor Hendricks emphasizes the fundamentals, using simple explanations and avoiding models that are too complex mathematically, allowing students to assimilate principles without getting sidelined by excess calculations. Student problems are provided at the end of each chapter; the solutions manual can be downloaded from the CRC Press Web site.
