Engineers who practice green project management techniques will be very much aware of the effects that their projects can have on the ecology and the environment. Good engineers will have plans to mitigate these effects even before the first spade of soil is turned over.
Any structural design has to be completely effective in the way the structure behaves when subjected to the loads that are expected on it. This requires all forces and their effects to be converted to a common coordinate system so that the overall effect on the structure can be judged.
Latitude and longitude are used to define the absolute location of any place. This requires an accepted system of coordinates to be in place, and these are used to pinpoint the location of a place on the surface of the earth.
Generators for business use make sound economic sense if the power outages are a frequent occurrence, or if such outages are likely to cause hardships like in continuous process industries. Genset sizing requires to cater to all equipment that is essential for the business.
Crane accidents can be caused by mechanical failures or human failures in the operations of the cranes. Even the mechanical failures can be a result of improper supervision or maintenance and all point to lack of training and required attention to crane operations by field managers.
Water from firefighting operations and smoke from a fire causes lots of damage and a need for cleaning operations once the fire is put out. This cleanup should be started as soon as possible, but only after making sure the structure and electrical systems are safe.
Drill foam is a detergent used by drillers of oil wells to assist in the floatation of dirt to the surface and which also helps to extend the life of drill bits by reducing the wear on them. Such foams form a substantial cost of drilling and reusing the foam treatment makes sound economic sense.
Underground space is very important for the smooth functioning of society as this is where the pipelines, utilities, waste disposal systems, etc., are located. Trenchless technology allows this space to be used without disrupting the surface.
Heightened public awareness and stricter application of effluent standards by the authorities has led to industrial wastewater reuse being given a lot of importance. Advanced technologies have also led to such reuse becoming feasible and economical.
Pipes are laid in the ground and soil conditions that are acidic can cause water mains to corrode and rupture. Breaks can also be occur when the pipes are subjected to very high pressures, which can even come from the water hammer cause by incorrect closing of valves.
The health risks involved in asbestos has led to its being removed and replaced. There are persons and organizations specialized in asbestos abatement procedures. Even this asbestos abatement exposure does lead to health risks and requires companies to follow EPA guidelines.
Uncertainties in an engineering system can be mainly attributed to ambiguity and vagueness in defining the variables and parameters of the system and their relations. This gives rise to problems in structural reliability analysis which can endanger structural safety.
There are a number of techniques available for estimating the bearing capacity of rock foundations. These techniques include analytical methods, traditional bearing capacity equations, and field load tests. Of the various methods, field load tests are the least commonly used.
Proper preparation of the surface is the most important factor in achieving the bond between Ardex and the concrete surface being treated. No matter which topping or overlay is used to level, smooth, or repair a substrate’s surface, it will only be as strong as the surface to which it is bonded.
Training in any area of the construction industry requires a high-level of hands-on training and technical skills. The work completed inside programs provided by construction training providers covers professional work in depth to prepare students to enter careers in as little as six months.
The sphere of influence that geography exerts over almost all human activity cannot be understated. The physical geography of a land has a vast influence on the activities in that country, and this is to a large extent also dependent on the geological formations that are part of the environment.
