Water Treatment: Principles and Design

Water Treatment: Principles and Design 

John C. Crittenden

Preference :

This book is written to serve several purposes: (1) an undergraduate textbook appropriate for elective classes in water treatment, (2) a graduate-level textbook appropriate for teaching water treatment, groundwater remediation, and physical-chemical treatment, and (3) a reference book for engineers who are designing or operating water treatment plants. To convey ideas and concepts more clearly, the book contains the following important elements: (1) 170 example problems worked out in detail with units, (2) 399 homework problems, designed to develop students understanding of the subject matter, (3) 232 tables that contain physical properties of chemicals, design data, and thermodynamic properties of chemicals, to name a few, and (4) 467 illustrations and photographs. Metric SI and U.S. customary units are given throughout the book. Instructors will find the example problems, illustrations, and photographs useful in introducing students to fundamental concepts and practical design issues. In addition, an instructor’s solutions manual is available from the publisher.
