Computational Fluid Dynamics
This book provides the basics of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) appropriate to modern day undergraduate study. The aim is to bridge the gap between books focusing on detailed theoretical analysis and commercial software user’s guides which do not contain significant theory. The book provides the reader with the theoretical background of basic CFD methods without going into deep detail into the mathematics or numerical algorithms.
Basic Concepts in Turbomachinery
This book is about the fundamentals of turbomachinery, the basic operation of pumps, aircraft engines, wind turbines, turbomachinery for power generation and hydro-electric machines. It compliments courses that you will be studying in these areas by concentrating on getting the basics right. Enormous emphasis is placed on relating the complex geometry of turbomachines to the fundamental analysis models used throughout the design of all turbomachinery. The simple techniques described in the book provide the basis for preliminary design of all turbomachinery and so mastering the concepts in this book provides a solid foundation for later study.
This book explains the basic modes of heat transfer namely conduction, convection and radiation. Fundamental mathematical models representing the heat transfer modes are introduced and application engineering problems are discussed. The principles of heat exchangers operation are covered as well.
Heat Transfer: Exercises
This Heat Transfer exercise book contains examples and full solutions to go with the Heat Transfer theory book. In the theory book the basic modes of heat transfer were explained. Namely conduction, convection and radiation. Hopefully this Heat Transfer exercise book will help you to gain further understanding of this subject.
This is an introductory book on hydraulics that covers the fundamental theories (continuity, energy and momentum equations), hydrostatics, pipe flow, physical modelling (dimensional analysis and similarity), open channel flow, uniform flow, channel design, critical flow, rapidly varied flow, hydraulic jump, hydraulic structures, gradually varied flow, computation of flow profile, unsteady flow and hydraulic machinery (pump and turbine). The text has been written in a concise format that is integrated with the relevant graphics, examples, questions, answers and full solutions.
A Wet Look At Climate Change
The term “Climate Change” has become popular but is not new to our planet. Our climate changes, sometimes dramatically, sometimes gradually, but it always changes. We hear about the wettest month on record, countrywide floods, record high and low temperatures, global warming...how do these changes in weather affect things around us? “A Wet Look at Climate Change” introduces the basics about moisture in air, which is the driving force for our weather. The subsequent chapters cover a range of everyday examples showing the impact these weather changes have around our home, garden and workplace.
Atmospheric Pollution is a theme which is becoming increasingly important as the discussion on global warming becomes ever more relevant. This textbook introduces the different concepts of Atmospheric Pollution and also introduces the reader to the underlying principles of physics and chemistry, which are constants in this discussion.
Introduction to Wastewater Treatment
This book provides an introduction to the fundamental concepts and equations that underlie the engineering processes in wastewater treatment. Topics include preliminary treatment, sedimentation, biological treatment, nutrient removal, disinfection, and sludge treatment. Also discussed are wastewater management issues in developing countries and emerging concerns and trends in wastewater treatment in developed countries.
This is an introductory book on hydrology that covers the fundamental theories on hydrological cycle (water balance, atmospheric water, subsurface water, surface water), precipitation analysis, evaporation and evapotranspiration processes, infiltration, ground water movement, hydrograph analysis, rainfall runoff modelling (unit hydrograph), hydrological flow routing, measurements and data collection, hydrological statistics and hydrological design. The text has been written in a concise format that is integrated with the relevant graphics, examples, questions, answers and full solutions.
Sanitation & Water Supply in Low-income Countries
Water supply and sanitation are amongst the most basic requirements of life. For the past 50 to 150 years people living in Europe, America and a few capital cities elsewhere around the globe have come to take for granted the provision of a virtually limitless supply of clean, safe water and the seemingly effortless removal of all human wastes ‘out of sight and out of mind’. That this miracle of collective political will, urban planning and engineering bravura is so much taken for granted is credit to the public health engineers, planners, civic administrators and politicians who made it possible. That we should take it for granted is wholly unacceptable.
