  • Solar/wind power for noise monitoring terminals

    Solar Power Solutions A noise monitoring terminal’s (NMT) low power consumption and its ability to operate fully without power hungry cooling and heating units inside its enclosure mean that it is suitable for power from solar panels. The NMT may be continuously powered by battery which in turn is kept charged via solar energy. This solution is most appropriate in areas where there ...

  • Weather claims and wind safety

    Anybody working in the construction industry either here in the UK or anywhere else in the world is likely to know that the weather can present us with particular hazards. While rain, ice and snow are particularly dangerous to work in, we must always be aware that the wind is also likely to make conditions unsafe, particularly for those who work at height and those who ...

  • Construction and Civil Infrastructures Monitoring Systems

    Civil infrastructures are usually monitored through its whole life cycle. SHM (Structural Health Monitoring) technologies enable the estimation of the structural state and detection of structural change that affects the performance of a structure. Two discriminating factors in SHM are the time-scale of the change (how quickly the state changes) and the severity of the change. These factors ...

  • The challenges and benefits of local air quality monitoring

    A new generation of air quality monitors is now being offered to provide localised, real-time air quality readings – but the potential benefit is only just starting to be realised. It is generally accepted that whilst measurements from air quality reference stations are highly accurate, they are not sufficiently location-specific. Key pollutants – such as NO2 and PM2.5 ...

  • Engineering design and realisation of an automatic real time weather monitoring station using commercial CAD tools

    The paper describes the design and realisation of a low cost automatic real time weather station project aimed at significantly enhancing the design, realisation, and testing skills of undergraduate engineering students through the use of industrial Computer Aided Design (CAD) tools. The station measures the following meteorological variables: temperature, humidity, rain, and wind speed and ...

  • Torque about improving handling accuracy

    Dry bulk handling is en route to becoming a precision science with a level of control previously undreamt of, thanks to 20 years of research and development into digital non-contact torque monitoring. Dry bulk handling is following many other industrial processes that have been redeveloped from a ‘black art’ to a highly accurate and controlled procedure. A generation ago much of industry was in ...

  • Stevens Hydra Probe Helps in Landslide Research

    Each year during the wet season we hear news reports about landslides in America and abroad. Sometimes these events happen in unpopulated areas but unfortunately they also occur in areas where people live, causing property damage and taking lives. But what causes these events and what can be done about them? That’s what Dr. Burns, a geology professor at Portland State University is trying to ...

  • Data Mining Disaster

    Computer technology that can mine data from social media during times of natural or other disaster could provide invaluable insights for rescue workers and decision makers, according to an international team writing in the International Journal of Emergency Management. Adam Zagorecki of the Centre for Simulation and Analytics, at Cranfield University, Shrivenham, UK and David Johnson of Missouri ...

  • Can the Internet save the planet?

    Last October, environmentally conscious Netheads everywhere got some excellent news. The pervasive use of broadband Internet connections and the tools and practices they enable could reduce greenhouse gas emissions by some 1 billion tons over the next decade, according to the American Consumer Institute. Widespread adoption of broadband in the United States alone would cut energy use by the ...


  • SolarBee Technical Bulletin

    A. SOLARBEE OVERVIEW 1. Origin of the SolarBee. Pump Systems, Inc. (PSI) developed, built and installed its first solar powered mixer in Dickinson, ND, in the summer of 1998. It was installed into a 30 acre x 13 foot deep municipal wastewater reservoir which had a long history of toxicity associated with ammonia, odor, and stratification problems. In six weeks the entire reservoir cleared up to ...
