  • An insight into bearing strength reporting methods of a runway pavement

    All runways used by civil aircraft are classified according to their strength and they are given a load classification number (LCN) or single wheel loading (SWL) of its weakest point. Currently, the load bearing strength of a runway is reported using empirical approaches recommended by the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO). The ICAO has adopted a pavement classification system for ...

  • Recovering from Hurricane Rita at Lake Livingston Dam

    ABSTRACTOn September 24, 2005, incredibly powerful winds on the dry side of Hurricane Rita caused a combination of surge and waves that damaged approximately 11,000 feet of the rip rap that provides upstream slope protection on the 13,480 foot long Lake Livingston Dam, north of Houston, owned and operated by the Trinity River Authority of Texas(TRA). Lake Livingston Project staff, responding ...

  • Bloodhound: Beyond the Speed of Sound

    During tests in South Africa, the Bloodhound supersonic car has reached its fastest speed to date, blasting to an incredible 628 mph. The unique pencil-shaped car, powered by a rocket engine and a jet engine, is designed to reach speeds of 1,050 mph. It is being continually developed with the aim of beating the current land speed record of 763 mph, achieved on 15th October 1997 by RAF pilot Andy ...

  • A brief statement of airport applications for doppler SODAR systems

    Doppler SODAR Operating similar to a sonar the Doppler SODAR (Sonic Detection and Ranging) directly measures the atmospheric wind speed and direction at multiple altitudes simultaneously. These systems utilize the Doppler effect imposed on the received acoustic signal echoed by the atmosphere for the wind measurements. The Doppler effect is the common observation that the acoustic signal ...

  • Water for an integrative climate paradigm

    By the logic of the New Water Paradigm (NWP), it is deforestation, industrial agriculture, and urbanisation that determine climate by draining land, so that more solar energy re-enters the atmosphere as sensible heat, rather than latent heat of evaporation. Human-made 'hot plates' lead to irregular precipitation and other climate destabilisation effects, but these can be mitigated through ...
