  • Are my STS’s recordable?

    Although we often take it for granted, hearing is one of our most important senses. During infancy and childhood, hearing is vital for the normal development of speech and language. Hearing remains equally important throughout life as it enables us to communicate with friends and colleagues, and allows us to stay connected to and be aware of our environment. The ear is a remarkable structure, ...

  • Underwater Bridge Inspections – Drones Conducting Remote Evaluations

    Deep Trekker Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROV), or underwater drones, are establishing themselves as the ideal tool for underwater bridge inspections. It goes without saying that the structural integrity of a bridge is extremely important; after all, you’re only either walking, driving, or riding a train across it. With the public safety in mind and to continue the flow of traffic, these ...

  • Quality Assurance Guidance for Conducting Brownfields Site Assessments

    Executive Summary Many sites across the nation once used for industrial and commercial purposes are now abandoned or under-used. Some of these sites — often referred to as “Brownfields”— are contaminated; others are perceived or suspected to be contaminated. In 1993, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) created the Brownfields Economic Redevelopment Initiative to empower States, Tribes, ...

  • Hydraulic conductivity of residual lateritic soil permeated with organic chemicals

    In this study, three lateritic soil samples compacted at 2% wet of optimum moisture content with British Standard Light (BSL) effort were permeated with acetone and ethanol over a range of concentrations (0, 25, 50, 75, 100%), while benzene and heptane were used at full strength. Hydraulic conductivity of specimens permeated with diluted solutions of acetone and ethanol ( ...

  • The Thermal Probe—Measurement of the Thermal Conductivity and Drying Rate of Soil in the Field

    The thermal probe is a metal rod with an internal heating element and temperature sensor. In the field it is pushed into a predrilled hole in otherwise undisturbed soil, and the thermal properties of the soil are estimated from the temperatures recorded at intervals after a constant power is supplied to the heating element. The following are discussed in this paper: the theory behind the methods ...

  • Joint estimation of hydraulic conductivities of two sand samples in a W-tube system with a bi-exponential response

    The motivation for this paper is the practical problem of interpreting bi-exponential rate-of-rise curves that are observed during many field piezometric tests. In the authors' previous study, a laboratory W-tube system of water flow through two samples of sand was introduced with an adequate mathematical model. The desired bi-exponential character of water flow was obtained by placing two ...

  • 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 ...

  • Mine remediation case study

    Bartow, Florida GeoView, Inc. performed a geophysical investigation across a 200 acre site in Polk County, Florida. It had been reported that clay slimes from former mining operations had been deposited on the site. The purpose of the investigation was to help determine the horizontal and vertical extent of the clay slimes. Due to the large size of the site and limited budget, the ...

  • Behavior of Flame Spread Downward over Thick Wood Sheets and Heat Transfer Analysis

    To investigate the flame spreading mechanism over charring materials under natural convection, wood sheets from 0.9 to 3 mm thickness have been chosen. The variation of mean flame spread velocity V with thickness  is measured. Typical flame shapes over the wood surfaces are recorded using CCD. The temperature fields in the gas phase are examined by a set of fine thermocouples. On the basis ...
