Automated Tie Down Device - Military - Case Study
Problem: The Office of Naval Research asked PCDworks to create a self-powered, remote-controlled tension system that would reduce damage to cargo, decrease load and unload times, and minimize crew involvement. .Process: PCDworks created a system of individual units which, when networked together, provide the ability to simultaneously secure and release loads. In this effort, PCDworks designed customized multi-hop wireless communications, advanced sensing capabilities, and a proprietary self-releasing hook....

Assessment of uncertainty in discrete fracture network modeling using probabilistic distribution ...
There have been widespread concerns about solute transport problems in fractured media, e.g. the disposal of high-level radioactive waste in geological fractured rocks. Numerical simulation of particle tracking is gradually being employed to address these issues. Traditional predictions of radioactive waste transport using discrete fracture network (DFN) models often consider one particular realization of the fracture distribution based on fracture statistic features. This significantly underestimates the uncertain...
Case study - Nuclear Waste Incineration (France)
Nuclear waste incineration trials 1996 Glosfume successfully provided a pilot filter to carry out various trials on nuclear waste incineration. The filter was designed to operate under vacuum and passed all of the stringent requirements of French Nuclear Fuels. Similar filters have subsequently been used on several sites throughout France, contributing to reduced waste disposal costs and environmental quality. Installation date: 1996 Location: France Filter unit: Information withheld The emission levels...
Why is Energy-from-Waste slow to catch on in the U.S.?
Nithin Coca reports in TriplePundit that Energy-from-Waste (EfW) is growing fast in Europe and parts of Asia. But it’s relatively stagnant here in the United States. In fact, the percentage of waste we burn for energy is actually slightly down in the past five years. What’s holding the U.S. back from this potentially sustainable solution? This stagnation is even more surprising when you consider that the past decade has seen a real energy shift in the U.S., as coal usage falls and renewable energy...
