Watermaths, third edition

 | 9781789060386 Iwa Watermaths 3Rd Ed

Author: Simon Judd

Watermaths presents the mathematics underpinning the design and operation of the individual unit process technologies used for purifying water and wastewater. The book aims to provide the reader with sufficient information to enable them to tackle the most important calculations in this area, without requiring any prior knowledge of the subject and assuming only a very basic grounding in science or engineering.

It focuses on the most essential areas of knowledge required, containing tuition in basic numeracy, chemistry, process engineering and fluid physics, as well as cost analysis. The simple and succinct delivery is designed to get the reader up to speed as rapidly as possible: sufficient background information is provided to explain the purpose of the calculations, and ultimately tackle the complete wastewater reclamation plant design problem included in the book.

Example calculations are provided within each chapter, each followed by exercises intended to reinforce the learning (and for which solutions are appended). Exercises range in difficulty from simple single calculational-step problems to more complex ones, and the over-arching design problem provides some context to the mathematics.

The book can be understood by those relatively new to the water sector, and is intended as a primer rather than a comprehensive handbook. It is nonetheless sufficiently comprehensive to permit design calculations for most water and wastewater treatment unit processes.
