  • How Tire Shredding Protects Wildlife

    One of the most revolutionary inventions in the history of mankind was the wheel, and the best upgrade to that invention was the rubber tire, which overcame the limitations of wooden or metal wheels and made it possible to have smooth rides at fast speeds. However, there is a significant drawback to using rubber tires: eventually, they get too worn out to be useful as tires anymore and have to ...

  • The Wheels of Integrated Product Policy Grind Slow

    Integrated product policy had an innovative feel when it appeared on the EU's environmental agenda in the late 1990s. But after much in-fighting and business lobbying, the White Paper on IPP issued by the European Commission in June proved disappointingly thin, and unlikely to make any significant impact on the market until the end of the decade at best. 'Fundamental changes in the way societies ...

  • Town of Manhattan, MT 400,000 GPD Bio-wheel plant case study

    The Manhattan treatment plant is a 400,000 GPD plant in two trains, containing six 24 x 5.0 Bio-WheelTM. It is able to nitrify and denitrify, with two anoxic basins ahead of the aeration basins. Two conventional flight and scraper clarifiers are used. Three Penn Valley RA S/MLSS pumps are located in a separate pump room. The plant is designed for a future expansion to 0.8 MGD. At this time the ...

  • Vibrations can have both negative and positive effects on the perception of sound

    In a listening test participants were asked to rate their impression of product sound quality of truck sounds combined with steering wheel vibrations. The set-up also contained stimuli where one of two harmonics in the sound was suppressed, corresponding to the most salient peaks in the vibration spectrum. Sound and vibrations were rated as more annoying, tiring, rumbling and of lesser quality ...

  • Dynamic Behavior of the Bumpy Road Shaking Table System

    Vibration tests were performed on the “bumpy road shaking table” system at the Cambridge University Geotechnical Centrifuge to investigate its dynamic behavior under operating conditions. In these tests, steel plates of known weights were fastened onto the base of the model container. The container was then subjected to “earthquake motions” simulated by the shaking table system and the ...

  • State of The Art Technology in Ore Mining

    The Styrian Erzberg is the largest open pit of ore in Central Europe. To hold as well as to improve the ore quality comprehensive modernisations were tackled. Here, ore mining began in the fourth century - a date which is supported by remains of melting furnaces found in the small Styrian town called Eisenerz (the German word for iron ore). The name could not be more characteristic. The ...

  • The VGOT Darrieus wind turbine

    We present the actual state of development of a non-conventional new vertical-axis wind turbine. The concepts introduced here involve the constructive aspects of variable-geometry oval-trajectory (VGOT) Darrieus wind turbines. The key feature of a VGOT machine is that each blade slides over rails mounted on a wagon instead of rotating around a central vertical axis. Each wagon contains its own ...
