Counter A New Approach to Environmental Engineering Education his exciting introduction to environmental modeling unites the principles underlying mass and momentum transport phenomena with environmental processes that ultimately determine the spread and control of pollutants in air, water, and soil. Transport Modeling for Environmental Engineers and Scientists builds on integrated transport courses pioneered thirty years ago in the chemical engineering curriculum, and demonstrates the underlying unity of mass and momentum transport processes. It describes how these processes operate within the major environmental media, and how they underlie and unify the mechanics common to both pollutant transport and pollution control processes. Offering a solid foundation for the development of improved environmental designs and models, this comprehensive text: Covers the fundamentals of mass and momentum transport processes with an emphasis on aerosol and colloidal systems Presents an environmental focus on sedimentation, coagulation, adsorption, filtration, dispersion, chromatography, and porous media transport Includes chapters on chemical kinetics and reactor design Includes worked examples and numerous exercises at the end of each chapter Features numerous illustrations. An excellent text for upper-level undergraduate or first-year graduate courses in environmental and chemical engineering, Transport Modeling for Environmental Engineers and Scientists is also well suited for professional environmental engineers and scientists.
