  • Civil engineering projects

    Location  Slidell, LA Unit  C-3315 and C-4315 Project  Retaining wall The beauty of living in waterfront areas comes with the danger of floods from seasonal hurricanes and tropical storms. It is important, therefore, to build above the designated flood-elevation plain. A product is sometimes needed to elevate a property, by use of mass-gravity retaining walls. At the site ...

  • What is resiliency in engineering?

    Resilient are the roads on which you drive, the bridges that you cross, and the buildings that stand tall year after year.  Of course, these components of our day-to-day need maintenance just like anything else but chances are, they were designed and constructed with the tools of their time to promote the highest level of foreseeable longevity. Designing for resiliency is critical: ...

  • Runoff model validation for large–scale afforestation in arid land

    As a countermeasure against global warming, large scale afforestation of arid land which is hardly used for crop cultivation has been receiving attention. By large scale afforestation, atmospheric CO2 will be fixed into plants. In arid land, however, most of the rainwater is lost by runoff and evaporation. Effective use of rainwater is required for afforestation. Thus, we made ...

  • Land-use-based sources of pollutants in urban storm water

     ABSTRACT Urban storm water is recognized as a major source of pollution to many of the nation’s waterways. However, little is known about the mechanisms and processes that influence pollutant loadings from specific land-use types. The goals of this study were (1) to examine event mean concentrations (EMC) and fluxes of TSS, metals, PAHs, and bacteria associated with storm water runoff ...

  • Investigation of environmental impact caused by aircraft engines

    The environmental effects of exhaust gas emissions from different types of spark ignitions (SIs) - naturally aspirated and air–cooled from piston–prop aircraft engines - at the landing and take–off (LTO) phase of flight–based operations are investigated in this study. The minimum natural resources effect was determined to be 1.37 MJ surplus energy/LTO in 320 in three cylinder displacement and ...

  • The effect of aircraft engine exhaust gases on the environment

    The sources of air pollution are classified as point, line and surface sources. Motor vehicle pollution is modelled as a line source. Hitherto, studies of air pollution have emphasised surface pollution caused by fossil fuel burning for the purposes of obtaining energy and heating, and motor vehicle pollution studies are usually concentrated on land vehicles. In this study, the effect of aircraft ...

  • Aims, obstacles and potential stakeholders of macro-engineering projects

    Macro-engineering involves the large-scale modification and manipulation of natural systems for the benefit of mankind. Some of the major applications of macro-engineering are power production, land reclamation, food production, climate change, environment, water, transport, coastal protection and the protection against (future) disasters. Several of these applications may come together within ...

  • Tech update: Plant instrumentation - food engineering

    Sensors and other devices are the foot soldiers in automation architecture, but most food and beverage manufacturers still are looking for full value. You know an equipment category has arrived when it starts getting its own industry-specific center. For the food production sensors that do the heavy lifting in instrumentation technology, that day could arrive earlier rather than ...

  • Comparing the capability of distributed and lumped hydrologic models for analyzing the effects of land use change

    Empirically based lumped hydrologic models have an extensive track record of use for various engineering applications. Physically based, multi-dimensional distributed models have also been in development and use for many years. Despite the availability of high resolution data, better computational resources and robust, numerical methods implemented in such models, their usage is still limited, ...

  • Air Canada - Landing Gear Shop completes initiative to enhance air quality case study

    Canada's national carrier, Air Canada, based in Montreal asked DiversiTech to find a solution to their dust problem in the landing gear maintenance area. Dust from exotic metals were flying all over the shop and creating an unsafe environment for employees and computer systems. DiversiTech installed articulating capture arms and downdraft tables to capture the dust at the source and ...

  • Flexible engineering designs for urban water management in Lusaka, Zambia

    Urban water systems are often designed using deterministic single values as design parameters. Subsequently the different design alternatives are compared using a discounted cash flow analysis that assumes that all parameters remain as-predicted for the entire project period. In reality the future is unknown and at best a possible range of values for design parameters can be estimated. A Monte ...
