Expansion Joints for Potable Water Systems
Water is vital to life. Not only do we need access to clean drinking water, we need the ability to transport it without contamination. For this reason, there are standards that were created for pumping systems to safeguard potable water as it comes into contact with different materials during transport through a piping system. The NSF/ANSI 61 Standard for Drinking Water System Components (published in 1988) establishes the requirements for the piping and mechanical devices (pumps, valves, chemical feeders, etc.)...
Brush up with Brüel & Kjær training courses
Sound and vibration expert, Brüel & Kjær is running a variety of theoretical and practical training courses throughout 2018. The first session, taking place on 6th March at the company’s UK headquarters in Royston, is the Vibration Testing for Engineers and Technicians course. This offers delegates a practical introduction explaining how to interpret vibration test specifications and apply them to a vibration test system. It has been designed for engineers new to the field of vibration...
Workshop Dutch Chapter: Playing with Geosynthetics VI: Earthquake Resistant Building with Geosynthetics
The Dutch Chapter organized her sixth workshop on a sunny day in April, to share the knowledge about the use of geosynthetics in earthquake resistant building. Nearly forty creative souls from principles, contractors, engineering offices and knowledge institutes searched for earthquake resistant solutions using geosynthetics. After two speakers had provided some theoretical background, the creative souls carried out experiments and brainstormed about new solutions using geosynthetics.Relaxation or reinforcement,...
IEQ in Occupied Buildings Undergoing Construction Discussed in New Video
Today, the IAQ Video Network and Cochrane & Associates announced the release of their latest educational video. Their newest production discusses how construction activities in an occupied home or building can lead to a wide range of indoor environmental quality (IEQ) concerns and even potential health issues. “Construction and renovation projects can adversely affect building occupants in numerous ways, including the release of airborne particulates, biological contaminants and gases,” said...
BAE Systems selects Brüel & Kjær to develop Acoustic Signature Management System for new UK Royal Navy vessels
BAE Systems has awarded Brüel & Kjær the Design Development Agreement to deliver a Hull Vibration Monitoring System (HVME) for the UK Royal Navy`s Type 26 Global Combat Ship (T26 GCS). Reducing a ship’s radiated noise signature is a key element to its tactical deployment, and an HVME system is the ideal means for this - providing self-noise monitoring capabilities to ensure management of the ships acoustic signature. Designed to replace the eight Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW) variant Type 23...
