  • Example of an Energy Calibration Report on a Standard Penetration Test (ASTM Standard D 1586–67) Drill Rig

    This note provides an example of an energy calibration report on standard penetration test equipment. This calibration was designed to determine a standard hammer drop height that would produce 2100 in.·lb (237 N·m) of compression wave energy entering the drill rods as a result of the average hammer blow when using drop procedures as ordinarily used for the rig under ...

  • Small Diameter Piston Sampling with Cone Penetrometer Equipment

    A small diameter piston sampler that can be operated by a cone penetrometer rig has been developed specifically for recovery of sand and clay samples under conditions where sample recovery using ordinary means is difficult. The 22-mm-diameter sample that is recovered in a polythene sheath is valuable for visual examination of the soil rather than for most laboratory testing purposes. Provided the ...

  • Evaluation of a Horizontal Well

    Background: Air Sparging Air sparging is an in-situ remediation technology where air is injected into the saturated zone of an aquifer. It is an alternative to conventional ex-situ pump and treat systems for remediation of contaminated ground water. It is necessary to understand the pattern of air flow that will occur in the subsurface in order to determine the optimal placement, ...

  • New advances in planning a bore

    Software helps take out the guesswork Horizontal directional drilling (HDD) is challenging and difficult work fraught with unknown obstacles. While it’s not possible to eliminate every obstacle, bore planning software tools developed by drill manufacturers can help small and large contractors create a bore plan that may help minimize risks. Bore planning software was ...

  • Introduction to Smco Magnets

    Samarium (Sm) magnets are rare earth magnets manufactured into two series. The first series is sometimes referred to as SmCo5 (Co means cobalt), which is usually a high energy product of about 18 to 22 MGOe. The second is the most commonly known as Sm2Co17, which is a higher energy product of about 22 to 30 MGOe. It combines 2 Sm atoms and Co atoms between 13 and 17. It is basically an alloy of ...
