Book Description

Civil engineers are introduced to chemistry and biology through a mass and energy balance approach with this book. It covers ABET required topics of emerging importance, such as sustainable and global engineering. Problems are integrated at the end of the chapters that are similar to those on the FE and PE exams. In addition, readers will have access to Web modules, which address a specific topic, such as water and wastewater treatment. The modules include rich content such as animations, audio, video, interactive problem solving, and links to explorations. Civil engineers will also gain a global perspective so they can take a leadership role in sustainable development.

About the Author
Mihelcic and Zimmerman and their co-authors introduce the field of environmental engineering by engaging the reader in a comprehensive development of basic principles, as well as providing a strong focus on design for sustainability. The breadth of content and level of treatment is appropriate for civil and environmental engineers and practitioners of elated disciplines seeking a survey of the field. By grounding their approach on the elements of design, the authors instruct readers in how to use the tools of green engineering to design for sustainability and the future of our planet and its inhabitants.

3Not the best textbook. Not the worst.
By Joel M. Cole
There are a multitude of typos, and several of the "Examples" that are worked through in the chapters - even though set up correctly - show mathematically incorrect (and often mathematically hilarious) solutions.
Some material is presented without explanation of dependent variables, so the student is left to "turn to the internet" to find out what constant, or formula, or principle is involved.

2my bad. I would suggest the e-book
By A. Kugel
I thought I was buying the book, turns out I was renting it and the company asked for it back out of the blue during finals week, my bad. I would suggest the e-book.
