About this book

This book examines engineering and mathematical models for documenting and approving mechanical and environmental discharges. The author emphasizes engineering design considerations as well as applications to waste water and atmospheric discharges.Chapters discuss: the fundamentals of turbulent jet mixing, dilution concepts, and mixing zone concepts; diffuser configurations and head loss calculations; different modeling techniques and accepted models; discussed in detail with theoretical background, restrictions, input, output, and examples; Lagrangian and the EPA UM 2-dimensional diffuser model; the PLUMES interface; Eulerian integral methods, EPA UDKHG 3-dimensional diffuser model, and PDSG surface discharge model; empirical techniques, RSB diffuser model, the CORMIX family of models for both diffusers and surface discharge; numerical methods with a discussion of shelf commercial models, and, Gaussian atmospheric plume models. "Fundamentals of Environmental Discharge Modeling" includes numerous case studies and examples for each model and problem.
