Facing the Unexpected: Disaster Preparedness and Response in the United States by Kathleen J. Tierney et al pdf free download.

Facing the Unexpected presents the wealth of information derived from disasters around the world over the past 25 years. The authors explore how these findings can improve disaster programs, identify remaining research needs, and discuss disaster within the broader context of sustainable development.

How do different people think about disaster? Are we more likely to panic or to respond with altruism? Why are 110 people killed in a Valujet crash considered disaster victims while the 50,000 killed annually in traffic accidents in the U.S. are not? At the crossroads of social, cultural, and economic factors, this book examines these and other compelling questions.

The authors review the influences that shape the U.S. governmental system for disaster planning and response, the effectiveness of local emergency agencies, and the level of professionalism in the field. They also compare technological versus natural disaster and examine the impact of technology on disaster programs.

Interesting insight on natural and man made disasters.

THE MOST PRACTICAL, COMPREHENSIVE GUIDE TO THE PLANNING, DESIGN, AND MANAGEMENT OF AIRPORTS–UPDATED BY LEADING PROFESSIONALS

“With the accelerated rate of change occurring throughout the aviation industry, this edition is a timely and very effective resource for ensuring both airport professionals and those interested in airports acquire a comprehensive understanding of the changes taking place, and how they impact airports and the communities they serve. A must read.” — James M. Crites, Executive Vice President of Operations, Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport

“Airport Systems has been a must read for my management team and my graduate students because of its outstanding comprehensiveness and clarity. Now further enhanced by an expanded treatment of both environmental and air carrier issues, it promises to retain its place as the foremost text in the airport planning, engineering and management field.” — Dr. Lloyd McCoomb, retired CEO Toronto-Pearson Airport, Chair of Canadian Air Transport Security Authority

“The chapter on Dynamic Strategic Planning should be required reading for every airport CEO and CFO. As de Neufville and Odoni emphasise, the aviation world is constantly changing and airport master planning must evolve to be more strategic and adaptable to ever changing conditions.” — Dr. Michael Tretheway, Chief Economist, InterVISTAS Consulting Group

Over the past decade, the airport industry has evolved considerably. Airport technology has changed. New research has taken place. The major airlines have consolidated, changing demand for airport services. In order to reflect these and other major shifts in the airport industry, some of the world’s leading professionals have updated the premier text on airport design – making it, now more than ever, the field’s most comprehensive resource of its kind.

Wastewater Engineering: Treatment and Resource Recovery by Metcalf & Eddy pdf free download.

Wastewater Engineering: Treatment and Resource Recovery, 5/e is a thorough update of McGraw-Hill’s authoritative book on wastewater treatment. No environmental engineering professional or civil or environmental engineering major should be without a copy of this book – describing the rapidly evolving field of wastewater engineering technological and regulatory changes that have occurred over the last ten years in this discipline, including: a new view of a wastewater as a source of energy, nutrients and potable water; more stringent discharge requirements related to nitrogen and phosphorus; enhanced understanding of the fundamental microbiology and physiology of the microorganisms responsible for the removel of nitrogen and phosphorus and other constituents; an appreciation of the importance of the separate treatment of return flows with respect to meeting more stringent standards for nitrogen removal and opportunities for nutrient recovery; increased emphasis on the treatment of sludge and the management of biosolids; increased awareness of carbon footprints impacts and greenhouse gas emissions, and an emphasis on the development of energy neutral or energy positive wastewater plants through more efficient use of chemical and heat energy in wastewater.

This revision contains a strong focus on advanced wastewater treatment technologies and stresses the reuse aspects of wastewater and biosolids.

Even If you are a complete beginer or you are an expert, this book is a must have if you are into waste water treatment. It is such a good reference as well as a very complete learning source. I must admit this new edition has a few error in the editing (ortogtaphy, charts, tables and graphics references from one chapter to another), but nothing that should impair its value… I’m very happy with this download!!!

The Landmark Water Use and Conditioning Resource–Fully Updated for the Twenty-First Century

Developed by the world’s leading integrated water treatment and process improvement company, The Nalco Water Handbook, Third Edition provides comprehensive guidance on the use and conditioning of water and wastewater in any industrial or institutional facility. Reflecting major advances in technology and the latest regulatory requirements, this thoroughly revised classic covers basic water chemistry and explains how to improve water quality, minimize water usage, and implement more efficient treatment processes.

The Third Edition features new information on wastewater, cooling systems, microbiological control, energy conservation, environmental hygiene, and steam generation problems and prevention. Every essential water treatment topic is covered in this authoritative volume, including:

  • The chemistry of water
  • Water sources
  • Contaminants
  • Impurity removal
  • Steam generation
  • Energy in water systems
  • Wastewater discharge
  • Industrial and municipal use of water
For those entering the field of water treatment with a chemical engineering or chemistry background, this guide provides an invaluable first look at water sources, treatment technologies and major applications. Specialist books exist to cover every subtopic in more depth if one needs it. I would recommend starting with this as an entry text, then moving to a water plant design book and then finally for your collection a specialist guide in a subdiscipline.
NALCO was/is the largest water treatment chemical/service provider. This books taps into their vast store of knowledge. The information is valuable for the novice water treater as well as the “old hand”
The text is sufficiently technical and comprehensive in its subject matter to cover the subject well. It is written for someone with a science or technical background, but it is not too theoretical, so that an advanced chemistry degree is required for understanding.
