  • Title V Compliance

    Title V of the Clean Air Act Amendments assimilates all the contents of a facility's state operating permit into one binding document, in an effort to simplify permit compliance certification. However, submittal of annual compliance certification is a labor-intensive process that places significant pressure on EH&S personnel responsible for ensuring that a facility meets all the conditions in its ...

  • Renaissance of paper models and folded plate structures in glass

    This paper presents the development of glass folded plate structures. Glass will not only be used as a transparent covering but as a load-bearing element for the whole structure. A complete outline ranging from the architectural approach including simple paper models to structural analysis will be presented. The structural concept and its functional characteristics will be confirmed by finite ...

  • Preclinical and safety studies of V-1 Immunitor

    The safety of V-1 Immunitor (V1) has been investigated. L929; BHK; Vero; Caco-2 and CEM-SS cells have not shown cytotoxicity even at 10 mg/ml dose. Ames' mutagenicity and micronucleus genotoxicity tests came out negative at 50 mg and 2000 mg/kg doses in Salmonella and bone marrow of IRC mice. Acute and chronic dosing of V1 to Swiss albino mice and Spague Dawley rats failed to cause any deaths. ...

  • Rain Gauge Fixed with 12 V Regulator

    A friend came to me with a curious problem regarding the research weather stations he maintains. The Geonor rain gauges were experiencing glitches. Some of his stations exhibited only occasional problems, and others were failing almost daily. In the plot below, the rain gauge output is in blue. It should be a steady, increasing line representing the weight of the accumulated precipitation. ...

  • Power-fold actuator noise diagnostics using statistical envelope analysis

    A good correlation between subjective evaluation and objective test is a key for any machine condition monitoring and fault diagnosis process. This paper proposes a statistical envelope analysis approach for product quality control where Fourier spectrum is selected as diagnosis analysis characteristics. The acceptance amplitude envelope is statistically calculated from the measured random ...

  • A folded wedge model for determination of true stratigraphic thickness in directional wells

    For exploration and development the geologists and engineers try to know the true stratigraphic thickness (t). The monoclinal and folded bed models are published methods for t calculation. Both models assume parallel beds which can lead to significant deviations. In order to calculate the values of t considering the effects of both folding and stratigraphic variation we propose the 'folded wedge ...

  • When to Hold and When to Fold - Considerations When Contemplating a Job Change

    An environmental professional recently called me for career advice on making a job change. He has a secure job working for a federal agency, but was bored and wanted to work for an organization "with a corporate culture that truly is in sync with sustainable development." Should he make the move, and if so, which are the best companies? I answered, "No, wait until the economy improves, build both ...

  • King George V Willowstick Survey - Case Study

    Atkins used Willowstick to position diaphragm wall and stop leakage through 6.2km long embankment dam With over 6km of embankment locating the exact leakage paths and hence minimising the required diaphragm wall length was made possible with the use of Willowstick. Willowstick brought confidence in the correct location of the diaphragm wall and major cost savings to the client. ...

  • F/V Savannah Ray Defuel - Case Study

    The F/V Savannah Ray washed ashore on Long Island, near Kodiak, AK. The wreck was located on rocky shore line surrounded by vertical cliffs with open fetch on three sides to the Gulf of Alaska. Weather and location proved very difficult to access. First low tide time period at end of February allowed for defueling stern tanks (3). Second mission in early March allowed for drilling and measuring ...

  • Symposium: Whitman v. American Trucking Association (PDF)

    In Whitman v. American Trucking Associations, Inc., the Supreme Court upheld traditional interpretations of §109 of the Clean Air Act, ruling that EPA may consider only public health and safety in setting ambient air quality standards and it may not engage in a cost-benefit analysis, as urged by industry groups. Also, contrary to the decision of the D.C. Circuit, the high Court ruled that EPA’s ...

  • Intrinsic I–V and C–V characteristics of ultra–thin oxide MOS (p) and MOS (n) structures under deep depletion

    Ultra–thin oxide MOS (p) and MOS (n) capacitors were used in this study to discuss their intrinsic I–V and C–V characteristics under deep depletion. Through deep depletion analysis proposed by Cheng and Hwu [1], we found that the gate leakage current of MOS (p) was perimeter–dependent while MOS (n) was area–dependent. These suggest a strong indication of Schottky barrier height lowering for holes ...

  • Determination of total vanadium and vanadium(V) in groundwater from Mt. Etna and estimate of daily intake of vanadium(V) through drinking water

    Vanadium(V) can be found in natural waters in the form of V(IV) and V(V) species, which have different biological properties and toxicity. The purpose of this study was to determine the concentrations of total V and V(V) in groundwater from the area of Mt. Etna and to assess the estimated daily intake (EDI) of V(V) of adults and children through drinking water. Water was sampled monthly at 21 ...
