  • Consideration of human factors in investigations of structural failures

    Investigations of claimed structural failures often lead to conclusions based on structural factors including strength and serviceability. Typically, these conclusions are absolute, since they result from objective comparisons of results to limits prescribed by owners and/or governing agencies. Occasionally, however, the failure of a structure may be defined by human factors, which are more ...

  • Votecs gets Starbank’s Vote

    When Starbank needed a new shredder to cope with extra long offcuts, the close partnership between Schelling and Votecs made the decision to buy Votecs and easy one. Shredding the three metre offcuts from two automatically fed Schelling beam saws running at full tilt might well have been a problem for the Newton le Willowsbased panel specialist, Starbank, had it not been for Schelling ...

  • Carbon nanotube–polyurethane nanocomposites for structural vibration damping

    Nanotechnology is an area which has vast potentials for turning fundamental research into successful innovations. In the present paper, damping in Polyurethane (PU)–Multiwalled carbon nanotube (MWNT) nanocomposites is studied by Dynamic Mechanical Analysis (DMA) and Free Layer Damping (FLD) methods. MWNT is functionalised using ...

  • Railroad vibrations - Case Study

    IAG has conducted numerous studies of the vibrations produced by the railways (tram, subway, AVE, goods, commuter, etc). These vibration studies are developed to determine which buildings can be affected by the circulation of trains and propose the most appropriate corrective solutions. Through a campaign of in situ measurements of vibrations, an estimate of the levels of vibration in the ...

  • Planning for shake down

    Design improvements at operating power plants continue to challenge plant staff and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs). While basic design calculations consider the capacity of components and stresses resulting from their use, few consider vibration issues in great detail in the design. Vibration can lead to instrumentation failure, cracking and fatigue damage, or early degradation of the ...

  • The Future of Data Acquisition: Will the Internet`s Cloud-Computing Replace the Data Logger?

    Electronic data loggers have been integral instrument in automation of data collection since their inception with widespread adoption beginning in the 1980’s. Data loggers are used across a variety of industries requiring automated data collection – applications include remote water resource monitoring, weather conditions, machine monitoring, gas and oil projects, building HVAC ...

  • Vibration Monitors Help Protect Property During Remediation

    Vibration instrumentation on hire from Ashtead Technology helped a firm of engineering contractors to ensure that remediation of contaminated land did not incur costly structural damage to nearby properties. Part 2A of the Environmental Protection Act 1990 aims to identify land affected by contamination that presents an unacceptable risk in its present state. If such land is identified, Part 2A ...

  • Do earthquakes affect indoor air quality?

    Earthquakes are bad news with a lot of destructive potential, but people tend to think of them only in terms of property destruction and loss of life. One thing that is often overlooked is the amount of pollution they generate. Earthquakes actually cause a lot of pollution, both for air, soil and water. Understanding the effect earthquakes have on air pollution can help in preserving a proper ...
