  • Offers the first and only source of complete information on remediation design under one cover
  • Covers underlying principles and explains design processes and procedures in detail
  • Includes real-world design examples in each chapter
  • Summary

    While numerous books are available on remediation systems, this is the first work to document and explain in full the design aspects of the subject. Based on sound engineering principles and practical construction considerations, this text explains the entire process of remediation design, from assessment to completion, and provides engineers with the tools they need to conduct a pilot test, apply the results, and design a practical, efficient system.
    Design of Remediation Systems first establishes the underlying principles behind each technology, then outlines the standard procedures for designing a system. This comprehensive manual explains feasibility and pilot tests, data evaluation, design considerations and parameters, calculations and equations, and construction aspects of the system. Also featured are discussions of the operation and maintenance of systems, and analysis of current trends, such as combining soil vapor extraction with air sparging. Detailed case study examples are included in each chapter. The book considers petroleum hydrocarbons as the primary contaminant, but the principles and procedures can be applied to a wide range of other contaminants.
    This hands-on text/reference presents a complete picture of remediation system design for engineers, students, and scientists. No other single work offers the thorough coverage of this critical aspect of remediation.
