This book provides a highly illustrated guide to the design, installation and maintenance of hot and cold water supply systems for domestic buildings. Based on British Standard BS 6700, the new edition takes into account revisions to the standard since the book was first published in 1991. It has also been updated to give guidance on the 1999 Water Supply Regulations and includes revisions to the Building Regulations. Written for designers and installers, this immensely practical book will also be of interest to technical staff of water undertakers, property services managers and students of NVQ and BTech courses. It was specially commissioned by the British Standards Institution and written for BSI by Bob Garrett, formerly of Langley College of Further Education and past President of the National Association of Plumbing Teachers.
The Book Deals With Some Of The Elementary Aspects That We Regularly Come Across In Water Supply And Sanitary Installations. An Attempt Has Been Made To Compile Information On The Design, Construction And Maintenance Aspects Of The Subject. Some New Topics Related To This Area Have Been Added In Its Present Edition To Make The Book More Exhaustive And Comprehensive. The Book Will Be Useful For Teachers, Students And Professionals Dealing In Architecture, Building Construction, Design And Maintenance Of Services.
This book completely covers a one-semester course on potable water supply systems in a single, compact volume for undergraduate students. It covers all the three main topics—sources of water supply, water treatment and water distribution. Using the latest tools and methods, it conceptualizes and formulates the resource allocation problems, and deals appropriately with the complexity of constraints in the demand and available supplies of water. The book integrates the concepts of chemistry, biology and hydraulics as applicable to water supply engineering. It presents the basic and applied principles and most recent practices and technologies. Apart from the students of water supply engineer...
This authoritative resource consolidates comprehensive information on the analysis and design of water supply systems into one practical, hands-on reference. After an introduction and explanation of the basic principles of pipe flows, it covers topics ranging from cost considerations to optimal water distribution design to various types of systems to writing water distribution programs. With numerous examples and closed-form design equations, this is the definitive reference for civil and environmental engineers, water supply managers and planners, and postgraduate students.
