  • Secondary Oil Containment at US Army Corps of Engineers - Big Bend Dam - Case Study

    Big Bend Dam takes its name from the unique bend in the Missouri River seven miles upstream from the dam. Construction of the dam began in 1959 and the embankment was completed in July 1963. Big Bend dam is 95 feet (29 m) high and 10,570 feet (3,220 m) in length. Power generation began at the facility in 1964 and the entire complex was completed by 1966. The hydroelectric plant generates ...

  • Salinity and miniDOT

    The miniDOT and other optical dissolved oxygen sensors measure oxygen within a special plastic material that has the property of changing its fluorescence in response to the amount of oxygen present. Oxygen arrives within this material by diffusion from the surrounding environment, which is usually water.  The miniDOT determines oxygen concentration in water dissolved oxygen  by ...

  • Tire Shredding: The Best Alternative

    From cars and trucks to planes, tractors, and forklifts, tires are used for a wide variety of vehicles. And those tires don’t last forever. Regardless of how many miles a tire travels, it should not be used longer than ten years past its manufacture date, as the rubber will grow brittle and can crack. This isn’t usually a problem, though, since most tires are replaced within three or ...

  • Using Electromagnetic induction to characterize soils - Case Study

    Electrical conductivity measurements have been used for years to determine salinity and moisture in soils. Probes were inserted directly into the soil to determine how well the soil conducted an applied current. This process was slow and labor-intensive and was usually reserved for scientific studies. A more recent technique for measuring conductivity is electromagnetic induction (EM), a ...
