Overview

This award-winning book is written for a variety of potential readers: the expert and the beginner in the design office, members of a design team, the city engineer or chief engineer of a water or sewerage authority (or their subordinates) who may review plans and specifications, and manufacturers and their representatives who should know how their equipment will be used in practice.

Each author or contributor is an expert with many years experience in the subject concerned, and the whole content has been thoroughly reviewed and approved by equally qualified experts. This depth of experience and expertise contribute to make the book an essential addition to the bookshelves of any of the professionals noted above: it shows how to apply the fundamentals of various disciplines and subjects to produce a well-integrated pumping station which will be reliable, easy to operate and maintain, and free from design mistakes. Where inappropriate design can be costly for any of the foregoing reasons, there is simply no excuse for not taking expert advice from the pages of this book.

In this update of the 1989 edition, 31 principal authors and other contributors explain how to apply the principles of diverse specialties in designing reliable pumping stations. To facilitate the selection of good design engineers, the publisher grants permission to photocopy Chapter 1 for distribution to municipalities and utilities. Among the 29 chapter topics are: flow in conduits, fundamentals of hydraulic transients, electrical fundamentals and power system principles, pump particulars, system design for water and sludge pumping, and last but not least, costs. Also includes codes, standards, other data, and a project review checklist. Due to extensive cross-referencing, the editors recommend viewing the text as an integrated whole.
