About the book
During the planning and design phase of any engineering system, structure, or component (SSC’s) there is a need to ensure that the designed SSC will perform as designed. A number of uncertain aspects can affect the performance of the designed SSC’s including spatial and temporal variability of the design parameters, physical model assumptions, numerical stability and convergence, and grid dependence of the design software. Some of these uncertain aspects either (reducible or non-reducible) need to be managed in a way the support the reliability and robustness of the designed SSC’s.
This book is planned to address topics related uncertainty management during the design of engineering SSC’s for use in pollution prevention and control. It aims at providing the reader with comprehensive overview on state of art of uncertainty management in during the design of engineered SSC’s. Contributions about uncertainty identification, categorization, quantification and propagation and analysis for SSC’s used in designing pollution prevention and control SSC’s are of special interest. Topics on predicting water and air quality, remediation of contaminated sites, hazardous waste disposal, pollutant transport and migration are of welcomed.
