  • Geophysical applications to solid waste analysis

    Abstract: Case studies of regional landfills show that electromagnetic geophysical methods can accurately and inexpensively define boundaries and thickness of waste. Degradation of putrescible solid waste generates conductive leachate that can be imaged with a frequency-domain terrain conductivity meter. Terrain conductivity measurements can be modified through a simple algorithm based upon ...

  • Electrokinetics - Technology Overview

    Electrokinetics separates and extracts contaminants from saturated or unsaturated soils, sludges and sediments, and groundwater. The goal of electrokinetic remediation is to effect the migration of subsurface contaminants in an imposed electric field via electroosmosis, electromigration and/or electrophoresis. These phenomena occur when the soil is electrically charged with a low voltage current. ...

  • Nano-characterisation of dielectric breakdown in the various advanced gate stack MOSFETs

    Nano-scale physical analysis of breakdown in nano-scale high-κ gate stacks consisting of either polycrystalline-silicon or metal as gate electrode shows that the microstructural defects and damages induced by breakdown in the high-κ gate dielectric are different from that of conventional SiOxNy/poly-Si and Si3N4/poly-Si gate stacks. Chemical analysis using transmission electron microscopy ...

  • Analysis of Hydraulic Gradient Effects for Laboratory Hydraulic Conductivity Testing

    A theoretical model is presented that characterizes the effect of hydraulic gradient on measured hydraulic conductivity in the laboratory. A closed-form equation is derived for the distribution of total head within a hydraulic conductivity test specimen as a function of specimen height, boundary stress conditions, compression index, and change of hydraulic conductivity index. From this ...

  • Aerodynamic instability of cable-supported bridges considering the initial deformed shape due to dead loads

    The aerodynamic instability of cable-supported bridges is studied, with due account taken of the initial deformed shape of the bridge due to the dead loads. The two-node catenary cable element is adopted to model the non-linear behaviours of cables with sags of various magnitudes. Self-excited wind loads are expressed in terms of flutter derivatives. The aerodynamic instability analysis is ...

  • The Role of Decision Making Software in Effective Selection of Project Alternatives

    ABSTRACTConducting an alternative analysis study for a public works project can be a difficult process considering that the alternative selected for design and construction must be fully embraced by the project owners and the public. A successful study can position the project for successful implementation and broad public support, while a poor study can create uncertainty for the project. The ...

  • Electrical properties of biogenic material: bilirubin rich gallstone

    The electrical properties of Bilirubin Rich Gallstone (BGS) were investigated by the Complex Impedance Spectroscopy (CIS) technique. The dielectric relaxation was found to be of non-Debye type. Evidences of temperature-dependent electrical relaxation phenomena as well as Negative Temperature Coefficient of Resistance (NTCR) character of the sample have been observed. The ac conductivity obeys the ...

  • Overview of the systems of systems engineering methodology

    There is no widely accepted approach to conducting system of systems engineering (SoSE) efforts. The SoSE methodology is a rigorous engineering analysis that invests heavily in the understanding and framing of the problem under study. By conducting a rigorous engineering analysis of the problem and its associated context, the SoSE methodology minimises the chance that a Type III error may be ...

  • Identification of indispensable components for a better drinking water quality management: Tunis case of study

    In order to reduce the number of operations for the assessment of potable water treatment, principal component analysis and hierarchical clustering are applied to large databases of raw and treated water of three treatment plants with various processes. It appears that the measurements can be divided into three clear groups, with a correlation higher than 0.8. The first contains salinity, ...

    Horizontal well technology has been incorporated into many current environmental remediation applications (and associated contaminants), such as in situ bioremediation, air sparging, vacuum extraction, soil flushing, free product recovery, etc. Ac cording to information reviewed, this technology is most applicable to sites with relatively shallow soil and/or groundwater contamination, and can ...

  • Methods for Removing Signal Noise from Helicopter Electromagnetic Survey Data

    A geophysical analysis was conducted over the abandoned T&T subsurface mines and portions of the Muddy and Roaring Creek watersheds in northeastern Preston County, West Virginia. The data were collected using helicopter-borne measurements of frequency-domain electromagnetic (FDEM) conductivity (390, 1555, 6254, 25,800, and 102,680 Hz). Noise was a significant issue in the lowest frequency EM ...
