ASCE Announces New Resource
May 14, 2008

The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) is pleased to announce the publication of Treatment System Hydraulics by John Bergendahl, an associate professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Worcester Polytechnic Institute.

Treatment System Hydraulics addresses the nuts-and-bolts of treatment systems, examining typical variables and describing methods for solving the problems faced by practitioners on a daily basis. The book begins with an introduction to treatment systems and hydraulics and explains the basic concepts of fluid properties, fluid statics, and fluid flow. Then Mr. Bergendahl discusses the factors that shape engineering decisions: friction in closed conduits, pumps and motors, granular media, valves, instrumentation, materials and corrosion, effects of transient conditions, and open channel flow. Each chapter presents fundamental concepts and applications in diverse situations, along with worked examples and problem sets. Suitable for undergraduate and graduate courses, Treatment System Hydraulics is also an useful reference for environmental, mechanical, civil, and chemical engineers designing or managing water treatment facilities.

The book is available for purchase online or by e-mail. The cost is $75.00 for ASCE members and $100 for non-members.
