  • Why Geocells Outperform Geogrids for Road Construction

    Geocells (cellular confinement) offer a more effective and practical 3D design solution to load support challenges than multilayered 2D geogrid efforts. Geocells transfer applied loads instantaneously, delivering practical soil stabilization in a product that is fast and easy to install. How do geogrids work? Geogrids rely on rutting, displacement and lateral movement of the road ...

  • How an Ultrasonic Flow Meter Works

    An ultrasonic flow meter utilizes ultrasound to measure the velocity of a fluid and is used in a variety of fluid applications. Ultrasonic flowmeters are ideal for water and other liquids. Clamp-on ultrasonic flow meters achieve high accuracy at low and high flows, save time with no pipe cutting or process shutdown, and are not affected by external noise. Here’s how ultrasonic flow ...

  • Train derailment prompts contaminated land investigation

    On March 30th 2015 a long freight train, transporting a variety of goods including lumber and chemicals, wound its way through the state of Mississippi. At around 5pm, part of the train failed to negotiate a curved portion of the track in a rural area near Minter City, resulting in the derailment of nine railcars, one of which leaked chemicals onto agricultural farmland and woodlands. Emergency ...

  • Locating Leaks for Cooling Water Systems

    This article illustrates how to locate leaks on cooling water systems in loud, industrial environments like Nuclear or Coal power generating plants without digging or putting anything inside the pipeline.  Infrared-Energy Pattern Analysis (IR-EPA) works on all pipeline sizes and all pipeline materials because it identifies the water outside the pipeline instead of listening for leak noises ...

  • Innovation and location in the multinational firm

    This paper provides an overview of the relationship between multinational corporations (MNCs) and local economic systems. It examines the implications of a decentralisation of innovative activity within MNCs for their interaction with local networks. It is shown that this interaction depends upon the type of cluster, whether a general centre of excellence or a specialised centre. These two ...

  • LIMS Locates the Diamond in the Rough

    From the earliest days of digging into the earth for minerals, one question has been raised by all those seeking to make use of the materials the earth offers up:  what exactly have we dug up and is it what we hoped it would be?  Well we’re not panning for gold anymore and hoping for a glint of something shiny at the bottom of our pans, unless we hobbyists.  Modern ...

  • Assessment of relative impact of reservoir location

    Reallocation of reservoir storage capacity for different water use purposes is regarded as one of the representative strategies for supplying water for human and environmental needs under the difficult situation of new reservoir construction. However, there are impacts of reservoir storage reallocation on river/reservoir systems because each reservoir in a multiple reservoir system is operated ...

  • NEC Classifications and Divisions for Hazardous Locations

    Electrical equipment in hazardous (classified) locations present a serious threat for workers due to the existence of explosive dust and vapors. Examples of such facilities range from grain mills and gasoline stations to aircraft hangars and chemical manufacturing plants. To prevent devastating explosions that may occur from the ignition of combustible particles in the atmosphere, the National ...

  • Geostatistical techniques for approximate location of pipe burst events in water distribution systems

    This paper focusses on the customisation and further enhancement of the recently developed data-driven methodology for the automated near real-time detection of pipe bursts and other (e.g. sensor faults) events at the district metered area (DMA) level. Assuming the availability of pressure/flow data from an increased number of sensors deployed in a DMA, the aim is to: (i) overcome the ...

  • Transient tests for locating and sizing illegal branches in pipe systems

    In pipe systems illegal branches can take away remarkable water resources with negative effects from both the economic and technical points of view. Difficulties in pointing out illegal branches by means of steady-state pressure and discharge measurements are mainly due to the fact that, of course, such systems are not active according to a regular time schedule. In this paper the possibility of ...

  • Locating subverted processes using random packet comparison in SCADA systems

    A supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) system may be subject to integrity attacks. Anomalies in sensor measurements may be used to detect these attacks, but such techniques do not permit us to locate attacking nodes. We propose a novel technique to enable this. Each participating network node probabilistically copies packets and marks them with routing information, before encrypting ...
