Useful guide to solving problems of deficient biomass in wastewater treatment plantsStrategies for using microbes for biogas, controlling filamentous organisms, floc formation, odor reduction, sludge management and more Written by a leading wastewater biologist with many years' experience in plant operation, this book is a guide to understanding and enhancing existing microbial populations in wastewater treatment. It is a practical book that addresses operational problems arising from deficiencies in biomass and shows how these situations can be recognized and corrected. After presenting background on major wastewater microbes, the text explains the types of bacteria used in bioaugmentation and the nutrients, enzymes and growth factors needed to solve processing problems and achieve operational goals, for example, the conversion of starches such as cellulose to soluble sugars. Using numerous case studies, the text focuses on the treatment functions performed by augmented microbes: improved anaerobic biogas production, control of undesired filamentous organisms growth, floc formation, nitrification, odor control, resistance to toxicity, sludge reduction, and many more.

Stress Analysis of Fiber-reinforced Composite Materials

Updated and improved, Stress Analysis of Fiber-Reinforced Composite Materials, Hyer's work remains the definitive introduction to the use of mechanics to understand stresses in composites caused by deformations, loading, and temperature changes. In contrast to a materials science approach, Hyer emphasizes the micromechanics of stress and deformation for composite material analysis. The book provides invaluable analytic tools for students and engineers seeking to understand composite properties and failure limits. A key feature is a series of analytic problems continuing throughout the text, starting from relatively simple problems, which are built up step-by-step with accompanying calculatio...
