Yaws Handbook of Properties for Environmental and Green Engineering by Carl L. Yaws
Book DescriptionEnvironmental concern is becoming more and more prevalent in the energy field. Whether it is the elimination of waste from a chemical spill, water pollution or ecological destruction, the removal of pollutants is an increasingly up-front engineering priority. However, there has never been a reference published to keep up with this quickly growing sector. To explain the fundamental properties of environmental engineering, acclaimed professor and author Carl L Yaws delivers this comprehensive volume. This extensive technical book contains all the basic environmental and green properties of hydrocarbons and chemicals that are advantageous in design, operations, research, development, manufacturing and safety for the petroleum, chemical and environmental engineer. Yaws covers the spectrum, beginning with the adsorption capacity of activated carbon, a required skill in the design and operation of absorbers for removing pollutants from air. He then extends his valuable expertise to include solubility of water as a function of temperature and the solubility of gases in water, both critical in discovering contamination levels from a chemical spill. Useful for both the student and field engineer, Yaws brilliantly covers the Henry's law constant for gases in water, the most important environmental application involving water and a must-have for all engineers. Other chapters involve: Octanol-water partition coefficient, a significant instrument of control in ascertaining the environmental fate of substances; Soil sorption coefficient, an important property in determining the fate and transport of chemicals in soils and sediments; And the threshold limit value and permissible exposure limit, which was established by OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) and is significant for meeting governmental regulations. Providing over 4,000 hydrocarbons and chemicals, this well balanced handbook greatly exceeds the coverage that other chemical and environmental books render and proves that Carl L Yaws still remains a monumental pillar of education for the engineering community.
