Geotechnical soils reports indicate whether a particular site is suitable for the construction of a permanent or temporary structure.
High definition induction logs are more accurate and efficient than the conventional well logging methods. HDIL, as they are popularly known as are an important part of well-logging and ensure precise resistivity data and hydrocarbon traces of a newly dug well.
A portable hydrographic survey system must be reliable and precise. Integration of the latest technology with the standard operations of a survey system has made hydrographic surveying very fast and simple. Read on to find which ones the best and latest available in the market.
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.
The process of producing drinking water from wastewater has been made possible by biological treatment known as bioremediation. This consists of introducing micro-organisms to the pre-treated wastewater storage tanks, where they work away until contaminates are completely removed.
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.
Rock mechanics is a field of engineering that involves interaction between geology, mathematics, physics, petroleum, mining, and civil engineering. There’s a lack of standardization in rock mechanics terminology, so this beginner’s guide is intended to help you get started with rock mechanics.
Lateral earth pressure refers to lateral forces acting on a retaining structures or soil mass. The three conditions of lateral earth pressure are active earth pressure, passive earth pressure, and earth pressure at rest.
The technique of reed bed construction is a muck treatment by plant ingestion. Reed beds present sludge dewatering by plant consumption, evapotranspiration, and drainage. Reed beds chemically change the muck with the plants using up the nutrients and minerals.
