  • NTSB Investigates

    An independent U.S. government agency uses everything at its disposal, including ASTM standards, to determine the causes of transportation and pipeline accidents. An airplane battery catches on fire. A gas pipeline explodes. A bridge collapses. When incidents like ...

  • Band structure investigation of strained Si1-xGex/Si coupled quantum wells

    The band structure of Si1-xGex/Si coupled quantum wells (CQW) was calculated with the 8-band k p method. Both strain and spin-orbit split-off band effect were taken into account. The subband energy of the Si0.6Ge0.4/Si quantum well as a function of barrier width and well width was calculated. Barrier width varies between 20~60 while well width varies between 30~110 . Finally, the relationship ...

  • London Hotspots for Noise Nuisance Complaints [Infographic]

    As we continues our quest to build up a noise nuisance map of the UK, we recently turned our attention to our fair Capital, London. With 33 boroughs in Greater London, it was always going to be something of a time-consuming task to get the noise complaints data via Freedom of Information (FOI) requests. However, we were pleasantly surprised by the London Local Authorities efficiencies. The vast ...

  • Hydrochemical investigation of water from the Pleistocene wells and springs, Jericho area, Palestine

    Rising salinity levels is one of the significant signs of water-quality degradation in groundwater. The alluvial Pleistocene wells in the Jericho area, Palestine show high salinity and a high susceptibility to contamination. Future exploitation and management of the water resources under these conditions will require an in-depth understanding of the sources and mechanisms of contamination. The ...

  • Investigating cross-contamination of aquifers

    Shallow aquifers can cross-contaminate deeper aquifers through penetration of an intervening aquitard, via sandy intervals in the aquitard, along well casings, across long well screens, or around aquitard pinchouts. Distinguishing among these potential pathways requires the use of evaluation tools that may support or eliminate certain pathways. These tools include groundwater gradient and ...

  • Vapor intrusion pathway investigation

    The BEACON samplers defined the vapor intrusion of tetrachloroethene and 1,1-dichloroethene, while the Summa canisters (EPA Method TO-15) reported all non-detects. The BEACON survey enabled detection of some chemicals at levels below the Summa canisters practical quantitation limits providing a more complete and realistic vapor intrusion exposure pathway evaluation. Based on the defined vapor ...

  • Manufactured gas plant investigation

    A two-person BEACON field team installed 304 PSG Samplers over a two-day period. Samplers were installed through soils, gravel, asphalt, and concrete. To accommodate field schedules, the Samplers were exposed for eight days in the field and the two-person field team required one day for retrieval of the Samplers. Survey results clearly showed where source areas are present on the site, as well as ...

  • An investigation on physical, chemical, and bacteriological quality of municipally supplied and well waters of the towns and city centre in the province of Nigde, Turkey

    Physical, chemical, and bacteriological properties of municipally supplied water and well water in selected towns and the city centre (Ni de, population 76,000) of the province of Ni de, located in central Anatolia, in Turkey, were investigated in this study. A composition of 70 samples were collected, 31 from Ni de city centre; 17 from Bor; 8 from Ulukı la; 6 from Altunhisar; 6 from  ...

  • Investigation of shell aggregate gold nanostructures

    The unique optical properties of noble metal nanostructures have led to an increased interest into their potential uses for various biological applications. For many medical investigations, it would be beneficial to use near infrared (NIR) excitation as well as small gold nanospheres, which can easily reach the cytoplasm and cell nucleus. To fulfil both requirements simultaneously, this paper ...

  • An investigation and remediation of TNT contaminated soils.

    An investigation and remediation of TNT contaminated soils and wastes was conducted at the Apache Powder Superfund Site in Cochise County, Arizona during 1999 and 2000. TNT contamination was most likely the result of salvage operations of World War I munitions. Characterized by a steep hillside and arroyo cutting through the wastes, the site offered challenges of stability, access, health and ...

  • Ocean acidification investigations in the Kiel Fjord

    Continuous, reliableand direct pCO2measurements since 2012 Greenhouse gases, and in particular carbon dioxide (CO2), are one of the most discussed topics in society today, influencing political debate, legal framework and business decision-making. From a pre-industrial 280ppm, atmospheric CO2 has risen to a present-day level of 390ppm, with this figure expected to rise to up to 1000ppm by the ...

  • Pilot-scale study investigating RO/NF performance

    High-pressure membrane technologies, especially reverses osmosis, have been widely used in indirect potable water reuse projects due to their high removal efficiency for unregulated and unidentified organics, as well as nutrients and bulk organic carbon (Drewes et al., 2003). Recent developments in membrane manufacturing have resulted in 'lower pressure' membranes such as ultra-low pressure ...

  • An investigation of e-business risks in UK SMEs

    Electronic business is a phenomenon that is now well defined and has emerged as a field of study. In parallel, businesses are increasingly embedding technology into their business processes and seeking to exploit the potential efficiency and effectiveness gains that can occur. As such, industry and academic attention has spawned a range of research interests and resulted in proposals of how ...

  • TQM implementation barriers in academe: a framework for further investigation

    Many academics and practitioners believe that Total Quality Management philosophy is the panacea of the 1990s for many industries in all segments of the economy, including education. Many others have argued that TQM is a fad, and like many of its predecessors, such as Management By Objectives (MBO), is going to fade away. Existing cases of successful implementation of TQM in business enterprises, ...

  • Investigation of the performance of single and multi-drop hydraulic structures

    In this paper, the work is divided into two parts. First, the hydraulic performance of single and multi-drop structures is investigated and compared using two approaches. In the first approach, the empirical equations found in the literature are summarised and reanalysed to compare the dissipation of energy of single drop and multi-drop structures. The demarcation condition at which multi-drop ...

  • Epic Fail by OSHA imposter investigated by Department of Labour

    So, an OSHA representative holds classes for mostly unemployed fishermen in southern Louisiana, providing them with essential training they need to get jobs cleaning up the Gulf of Mexico in the aftermath of the 2010 oil spill. Sounds reasonable, right? Well, it certainly would be, if the OSHA trainer was actually an OSHA employee and if the whole thing wasn’t an elaborate ruse designed to ...

  • Non-intrusive site investigation (UXO, CWM concerns)

    BEACON personnel used global positioning system (GPS) equipment to map out site locations. The soil-gas data clearly identified source areas of Trichloroethene (TCE) as well as other compounds of concern. The results showed the location of chlorinated contamination, which correlated well with data from a geophysical survey. While the flux chambers were in the field, more than nine inches of rain ...

  • Analytical investigation of an on-road in-pit heavy traffic situation

    The paper considers the problem of an on-road in-pit heavy traffic situation that might occur during the operation of a shovel-truck system. During their travel, trucks encounter other pieces of haulage frequently that can affect the truck's performance. It is a well-known fact that by increasing the number of trucks in the system, the productivity of the truck system grows. However, this only ...

  • Evaluation of Sorbent Methodology for Petroleum-Impacted Site Investigations

    Abstract Soil gas measurements are often used for risk assessment in vapor intrusion investigations. In the case of petroleum-contaminated sites, total petroleum hydrocarbon (TPH) characterization may be required to effectively measure the associated risk. One of the common strategies employed to characterize TPH for risk assessment includes the quantitation of indicator compounds of ...
