Supplements for Tecnologia de Tratamentos de Efluentes I

This page links to other pages that support this course. You should save this address as a bookmark in Netscape. You should expect changes so please check every week. Many assignments for the course require BASIC and a personal computer. The programs to be run in BASIC are Public Domain. You can get them from the teachers or from other students by copying to a disk, but you can also download easily now using the following link:
  • Teaching programs for PCs. The programs will move into your directory on the Unix system. You use FTP to copy them to a disk, or you can make a directory on your PC. When the hard disk on the PC fills up, somebody erases files. This means that it will take you about five minutes to download and decompress the programs again. When the .ZIP file is on the PC, decompress with PKUNZIP.EXE. Run using QBASIC.

    A Term Project is required.

  • The first Netscape assignment is intended to give you experience with Netscape and to provide detailed information about the B.O.D. test. These details will NOT be on an examination; only information from the lectures about BOD will be covered.
    More about testing drinking water.
    You may wish to explore the pages created by E.S.B. students last year. If so, just scan for some perspectives about environmental engineering. Some of the specific pages are reached through links further down this page.
    You may also wish to create your own home page.
  • The next Netscape page supports the lectures about simulation. You may refer to this page during the classroom tutorial, but its main purpose is to guide you in the use of the SIMBAS.BAS program when the professor is not handy.
  • The sketch showing the layout of waste treatment that was drawn by the Portuguese students last year has been remapped to link to pages in this archive. Click to get the sketch and then click on its words or pictures.
  • Equalization is reinforced by a very short BASIC program, EQUALIZ.BAS, and some brief WWW pages. You should run the exercise and view the pages on your own and not in classroom time. There is a nice page created by E.S.B. students.
  • There are lengthy pages about sedimentation . They are to introduce and reinforce the lecture material. You should also run the BASIC programs SEDIMT.BAS and SPEKS.BAS. As the lecture material continues, you may choose to run SETTLE.BAS, THICKEN.BAS, XFLOW.BAS, and CYCLONE.BAS later, but they are short and easy if you decide to run them earlier. There is a nice page created by E.S.B. students.
  • Air Flotation has only a brief presentation in our WWW archive with some photos of an installation in the U.S. The photos were dark to begin with and may not view well on a PC with a low resolution screen. There is a nice page created by E.S.B. students.
  • Filtration is covered in some detail. Because filtration is a topic in one of your previous courses, we will emphasize sand filters for water treatment. There is some duplication of the BASIC programs, but you should run them all because they are short and easy. See SANDFILL.BAS, ROTVAC.BAS, FILT.BAS, LEAF.BAS, and BAGHAUS.BAS. There is an unfinished page created by E.S.B. students.
    This would be a good time to view an optional presentation about History of Water Supplies in the U.S.
  • Chemical equilibrium is assigned in two parts. The WWW pages duplicate the lectures but allow you to get help at your own pace. For your first WWW session, stop after the pages about equilibrium diagrams for weak acids and weak bases.
  • Neutralization
  • Coagulation is on the WWW and supported by the BASIC programs MIGRAT.BAS, REPEL.BAS, SWEEP.BAS, and JARTEST.BAS. You should also view the WWW pages that finish chemical equilibrium. There is a nice page created by E.S.B. students.
  • Precipitation: There is also an unfinished page about precipitation created by E.S.B. students.
  • Leaching
  • Solvent extraction. Solvent extraction for decontamination

    The following links are not part of the 1st term course at this time. You may find them helpful in the 2nd term.
  • Aeration. There is a nice page created by E.S.B. students.
  • Adsorption
  • Rheology
  • Membrane Technology
  • Granular Activated Carbon
  • Ion Exchange
