  • Certification of road weather sensors with DIN EN-15518 – a clarification

    When driving attentively on the motorways you can discover a lot of road sensors. There are stationary sensors embedded into the road surface or – for some years now -non-invasive ones, which sometimes are the only solution to generate measurement data on bridges. Recently also mobile road sensors, installed on driving vehicles, were added to this list. The European ...

  • Water Quality Monitoring and Testing Using an Environmental Logger

    Intelligent dataTaker System from CAS DataLoggers Water disruptions typically occur after a large amount of water has rapidly collected in a catchment area. As a result this water is subject to continual monitoring and testing for a variety of chemical and biological agents as well as clarity, rate of movement, and water levels for environmental management. Turbidity, conductivity, ...

  • Sensitivity analysis of probits with respect to quantitative risk assessment of airborne toxic chemicals using IITD-QRA model

    This paper deals with the modification of a validated and operational heavy gas dispersion model, namely IIT Heavy Gas (IITHG) model-1, to propose a quantitative risk assessment tool named as IITD-QRA model. IITHG model-1 is modified based on the incorporation of appropriate probit equation and other necessary parameters (e.g., equipment failure rates, weather frequency, average population ...

  • Methods to determine dormancy and preharvest sprouting resistance in Barley

    Preharvest sprouting (PHS), defined as germination of seeds on plants before harvest, is an ever-present problem and concern for barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) growers, processors, and researchers worldwide. A major factor leading to PHS is a lack of seed dormancy, the failure of viable seeds to germinate under favorable conditions. The objectives of this research were to identify a simple, quick, ...

  • Oxygen Transfer in a Biological Aerated Filter

    The City of San Diego (City) operates the Point Loma Wastewater Treatment Plant (PLWTP) which can normally treat up to 240 million gallons per day (MGD) of chemically enhanced primary treated (CEPT) effluent for ocean disposal. The City wanted to understand the performance capabilities of Biological Aerated Filters (BAFs) in treating CEPT effluent to secondary standards. To this end, the City ...

  • Fabrication of polysiloxane-modified polyurethane sponge as low-cost organics/water separation and selective absorption material

    Through sol-gel and dip-coating processes, commercial polyurethane sponge modified by polysiloxane was fabricated under low temperature (60 °C) and atmosphere. The contact angle of the obtained polysiloxane/polyurethane sponge is 145 ± 5°. Hence, the polysiloxane/polyurethane sponge could float on water and selectively absorb organics from the surface of the water, indicating simultaneous ...

  • Why calibrate PULSE?

    This famous remark emphasises the importance of measurement in the world of science, industry and commerce. We all use and depend on it daily, in even the most mundane aspects of life – from setting your wristwatch to the radio time signal, to filling the car fuel-tank, or checking the weather forecast. All of these things depend on proper calibration and traceability to national and ...

  • Flash flooding prediction in regions of northern Vietnam using the KINEROS2 model

    Flash flooding (FF) in Vietnam has become an important issue due to increasing loss of property and life. This paper investigates FF prediction using the Kinematic Run-off and Erosion model to perform comprehensive analyses to: (1) evaluate the role of initial soil moisture (θ) conditions using the Bridging Event and Continuous Hydrological model; (2) model the discharge (Q) using different ...

  • Electric Safety in the Workplace

    Every day, in every business, there is one bill the employer will pay and that is the electricity bill. Electricity is used constantly, whether it is boiling a kettle, using a computer or equipment. It is intrinsic to our lives and is vital for our day to day activities. It is easy to take for granted; every now and then we are reminded of its importance. An example of this is when there is a ...

  • Future inside – smart environmental sensing technology

  • In Situ Solidification/Stabilization

    Introduction Solidification/stabilization (S/S) reduces the mobility of hazardous substances and contaminants in the environment through both physical and chemical means. Unlike other remedial technologies, S/S seeks to trap or immobilize contaminants within their 'host' medium (i.e., the soil, sand, and/or building materials that contain them), instead of removing them through chemical or ...
