    Being Brunel | The Civil Engineering Blog Every weekday I stalk the internet for photographs of engineering (actually, it’s every two weeks, thanks to the wonderful world of scheduling; but let’s not let the truth stand in the way of a good image) to share with you all. The purpose is the result of a long forgotten discussion of whether or not engineering is art- to celebrate the built environment beyond the aesthetics generated by architecture. This is the fifth gallery to come from the #EngineeringIsArt gallery. If none of this 50 image collection compacts your concrete; you can…

  • Simplicity Isn’t Easy

    13 Mar 2015 | 9:29 am
    The best designed products are always simple. They get the job done. They don’t get in anyone’s way. Effective design is simple design. Companies like Apple seem to achieve simple design with ease. That’s the image they want to put across and they do it well. They’re known for the clean, crisp and simple design of their products. Those products are the result of countless hours of refining, polishing and stripping back on design. Simple design is far from easy. It just often looks that way. The easy approach would be to keep adding more and more features and extras,…

    The radioactive material release last year at the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant nuclear waste repository in New Mexico was due to mixing of nitrate salt residues, organic sorbent (Swheat Scoop cat litter), and neutralization agent (triethanolamine), according to a Department of Energy summary of the investigation into the incident: The [Technical Assessment Team] concluded that chemically incompatible contents in Drum 68660, in addition to the configuration of materials in the drum, supported exothermic chemical reactions that led to a thermal runaway.

  • A Bridge Too Close

    29 Mar 2015 | 6:12 pm
    Construction accidents that lead to loss of life are always tragic, but it's unusual that anyone other than construction workers are killed or injured in them.  When hazards to the public are involved, most construction organizations take extra precautions to make sure that public safety isn't jeopardized by potentially dangerous operations or conditions.  Last week, a freak accident at a construction site came uncomfortably close to turning me into a statistic, but instead picked off another unfortunate member of the public whose safety engineers are supposed to protect.Most new…
  • Blue About Blue: Health Hazards of Nighttime Light

    23 Mar 2015 | 4:23 am
    A few years ago I was having trouble sleeping.  My wife, who at the time was editing a breast-cancer blog, told me about the connection between blue light and the body's 24-hour circadian rhythm, which dictates all sorts of things ranging from when you get sleepy to what your levels of stress hormones are.  It turns out that in addition to the rod and cone cells in the eye used for vision, there are special retina cells that send timekeeping signals to the entire body, based simply on the presence or absence of blue light.  During most of mankind's existence, blue light…

    Bureaucracies are technology, you know.  When you hear the word "technology," the first thing that springs to your mind may be a piece of machinery, or a technical discipline such as electrical engineering, but probably not the U. S. Postal Service or Medicare.  Nevertheless, just like pieces of machinery, bureaucracies are designed by experts to achieve certain purposes, and if they fail to achieve those purposes, you can have a disaster that is fully as harmful as an explosion or a fire due to purely mechanical causes.  Think Hurricane Katrina and the Federal Emergency…
  • ICAO To Airlines: Watch Where You're Going (Every 15 Minutes)

    Once in a great while, I have the satisfaction of making a prediction or calling for a certain action in this blog, and then seeing the called-for event actually come to pass.  Last month, the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) issued a new set of tracking requirements for airlines in participating countries, which means just about every airline that flies in more than one country.  While a formal vote on the requirements won't happen till later in the year, the slow-moving machinery of the United Nations—of which the ICAO is a part—has finally creaked into…

    16 Mar 2015 | 4:29 am
    There was a significant slope failure at the Yeager Airport near Charleston, West Virginia last week. A 2005 project to create an Engineered Material Arresting System (EMAS) at the end of the runway required a massive reinforced soil structure fill slope over 200 feet high since the airport was constructed on top of a hill. According to a presentation published by the geogrid manufacturer, this project was the tallest known geosynthetic reinforced 1:1 fill slope in North America (as of 2010). The slope failure follows a period of significant snow melt and rainfall. It is a deep-seated…

  • Bertha TBM Begins Moving

    18 Feb 2015 | 8:44 pm
    WSDOT reported that Bertha has slowly began moving again. It must tunnel through 20 feet of unreinforced concrete with its broken seal to break through into the rescue shaft. Once that happens, the repairs to her cutterhead can commence. The Seattle Tunnel Partners predict Bertha will overheat, as she did before stopping for repairs. If that occurs, they will stop tunneling to wait for the machine to cool before continuing. STP crews also chipped away at a Bertha-sized cut-out in the access shaft to make for a cleaner breakthrough. See video below. [Source: WSDOT and WSDOT YouTube Channel.

  • How to reduce energy use of conveyor systems

    Danielle Collins
    27 Mar 2015 | 10:30 am
    Conveyors make up a significant part of most assembly and automation systems, not only in size, but also in terms of energy consumption. Think about it – they often run continuously and operate with motors, gearboxes, and pneumatic cylinders, all of which can be energy hogs. But there are ways to reduce the amount of energy consumed by conveyors and reduce waste. We recently spoke with Mark Dinges, Product Manager – Factory Automation at Bosch Rexroth, about how users can save on operating costs for pallet conveyors by minimizing their energy use. According to Dinges, if you want to…

    Laser melting is an additive manufacturing method that uses a laser to heat a material into a fully melted liquid form. This is essentially the same process used in laser sintering with a few technical differences. Laser sintering uses heat to compact material into a solid form but does not liquefy it. Finished products also differ with laser melted objects offering different properties in terms of crystal structure and porosity.

  • Revit Tutorial: Importing Topography

    Kellie Saylor
    27 Mar 2015 | 6:36 am
    Civil engineers typically use a 3D CAD program to model topography for a site.  When we receive their CAD file for a site, we have to import it into Revit to create a topography surface that we can then edit. Before you create topography in Revit, make sure that your Survey Point is set to a known elevation on your topography. For this example, I am using a Survey Point of 6,460′ (USGS Elevation) which corresponds to the first topo line on the Northeast corner of my site plan. 1.  Inspect the CAD file the civil engineer gave you.  This cannot be just any CAD file.  It has to be a…

    Dean Dalvit
    26 Mar 2015 | 9:08 pm
    In order to identify the basic information about the rebar that is delivered to a jobsite, it is important to know how to read the mill markings that are stamped on every bar. This is especially critical to ensuring that your materials match up with the specifications in the plans. These mill markings illustrate the “soft metric” system adopted by CRSI member mills in 1997 (see our post about metric and imperial markings): Images and bar marking description courtesy of CRSI The top letter or symbol identifies the producing mill and deformation pattern.

    After a recent electrical fire in an office adjacent to ours in Austin, I felt it worth giving some advice on basic office emergency preparedness. Every office building should have an emergency exit route graphically displayed near the stairs and elevators. Make sure all employees know where fire extinguishers are located. Each office should develop an exit route with a rally point a safe distance away from the building to account for all staff once evacuated. Onsite emergency backups should have a quick disconnect or be ready to be evacuated at any time. One person should be assigned the…

  • The Apple Watch: Old Technology, Rearranged

    Chris Walker
    19 Mar 2015 | 7:20 am
    The tech news around the world is full of talk about the newly unveiled Apple Watch. Its long awaited arrival was always going to make waves and, as usual, Apple haven’t disappointed. Everyone is talking about it. Yet again, Apple have burst onto the scene and immediately positioned themselves as technology leaders. When you really look at it though, the Apple Watch isn’t as radical as it may first appear. It’s a collection of existing technology and ideas wrapped into a new bundle. Most of the parts on their own are lifted straight out of the design of any leading…
  • Craig Reviews the Knovel Polymer Matrix Composites Database

    18 Mar 2015 | 11:06 am
    A few weeks ago I wrote a post basically slamming the state of composite testing and analysis in the engineering world. Almost immediately after I wrote that note, Knovel asked me to review their online Polymer Matrix Composites Database. To be perfectly honest, I didn’t even know they had such a thing. So I had a look. Here are some thoughts. C is for Citation! Because I’m weird I started off by reading the documentation attached to the database. It seems that this database has been compiled using data from lab tests done at Wichita State University.  It’s also using information from…
  • Simplicity Isn’t Easy

    Chris Walker
    13 Mar 2015 | 9:29 am
    The best designed products are always simple. They get the job done. They don’t get in anyone’s way. Effective design is simple design. Companies like Apple seem to achieve simple design with ease. That’s the image they want to put across and they do it well. They’re known for the clean, crisp and simple design of their products. Those products are the result of countless hours of refining, polishing and stripping back on design. Simple design is far from easy. It just often looks that way. The easy approach would be to keep adding more and more features and extras,…
  • Three Quick Tips to Improve your Next Meeting

    “How was your meeting?” my wife asked as I walked in the door. We had a large meeting that was set to last half the day. I hate meetings, and she knows it. “It was actually… good!” I replied, surprising even myself. The thing is, meetings don’t actually have to suck. They often do, because often people running them have no clue what they are doing. Here are three quick ways to improve your next meeting: Make an agenda. You probably thought I was going to start this with “have a interesting topic” or some other nonsense huh? Well the truth is not every meeting can be on a…

    A partner within The Mapping Network helped a Home Owners Association (HOA) be proactive and monitored the inflow of sediment into their lake based upon five-year intervals.  Comparing water and sediment depth data from 2000, 2005, 2010, and 2015 the HOA discovered a increase in sediment rate from 2005-2010 due to heavy construction upstream. This data helped the HOA establish baseline information on their lake and aided them with facts for working with developers who were responsible for the sediment.  It is crucial to have a professional monitoring the sedimentation in your lake or…

    We all know the benefits of recycling: reduced landfill waste, conservation of natural resources and energy savings, to name a few. But what do we know about the effects of recycling in a particular area? For the first time, Texas can answer that question in detail, thanks to the Texas Recycling Data Initiative (TRDI). It offers a reliable measure on recycling within the state’s borders, providing legislators with accurate information to guide policy decisions. The findings, presented in February, provide a baseline for future recycling strategies within the state. Policy makers now have a…

    The self-service trend in air travel began in the 1990s with online check-in for passengers. Today that trend has become a revolution, with nearly every aspect of flying moving toward self-service, making life easier for air travelers. If airports and aviation planners aren’t considering increased self-service options in their designs for new or renovated facilities, they’re already behind the times. The 2014 SITA Airline IT trends study (registration required) showed that 87 percent of airports plan to invest in self-service processes in the next three years. Travelers increasingly…

    The fibres created by Matteo at Rice University have proven superior to metal electrodes for deep brain stimulation and to read signals from a neuronal network. Because they provide a two-way connection, they show promise for treating patients with neurological disorders while monitoring the real-time response of neural circuits in areas that control movement, mood and bodily functions. New experiments show that the biocompatible fibres are ideal candidates for small, safe electrodes that interact with the brain’s neuronal system, and could replace much larger electrodes currently used in…

  • New Flexible Nano Fibre Created Thats Tougher Than Kevlar

    John Shury

    Researchers at UT Dallas have created a new type of fibre which makes use of its electromechanical properties to absorb energy. This new material can absorb up to 98 joules per gram while Kevlar, often used to make bulletproof vests can absorb up to 80 joules per gram before it breaks. The researchers hope these new fibres will one day be used to form material that can reinforce itself at points of high stress and could potentially be used in military airplanes or body armour. The team sought to mimic their earlier work on the piezoelectric action, where pressure is converted into electrical…

    The driving force of American Textiles could easily be summed up in two words self-sufficiency. Through the Revolutionary War to present day, the textiles industry has had a vast and intriguing story that has evolved throughout history. Homespun The Birth of Old Glory, painting by Edward Percy Moran, ca. 1917 (Public Domain – Wikimedia Commons) To our knowledge, the earliest traces of American textiles can be found in the courageous Homespun Movement. This occurred during the beginning of America’s initial struggle with England that eventually morphed into the Revolutionary War.

  • What Might The Future of “Personal” Computing Look Like?

    14 Mar 2015 | 9:32 am
    Predicting the future of technology is a perpetual exercise in futility. But it’s fun. The evolution of personal computing is something that futurists and tech pundits like to try to predict every few years (or months). Like forecasting the weather, you are never completely right or wrong. If you were to ask me where computers, smartphones, and wearables are heading over the next 20 years I’d sit down and take inventory of the gadgets I own today. I’d also take a trip down memory lane to remember the devices I used to own. My iPhone 6 has replaced my camcorder, digital…

  • Beware of “Open Drains”

    27 Feb 2015 | 6:52 am
    As you get more advanced with your circuits you will start seeing circuit design patterns that may at first glance seem a bit weird. One such design pattern that can be confusing is the “open drain,” also called the “open collector” (when TTL circuits are involved). For the purpose of this blog we will use the term open collector, though the general principles apply to both technologies: Field Effect Transistors (FET) and Bipolar Junction Transistors (BJT). Open collector circuits are considered “active-low” and therefore require a pull-up resistor to…
  • Battling the Bouncing Button

    10 Feb 2015 | 12:07 pm
    Mechanical buttons and switches can present unintended input trouble for embedded electronics projects. There’s an undesired effect known as “bounce.” What is bounce? When you press a button it sometimes does not cleanly change states. There is some electrical noise generated as the button rapidly oscillates between states immediately after a button is pressed but before it settles. Think of it like pulling a mass-spring system downward, letting go, and waiting for it to settle at equilibrium. Switches and buttons oscillate similarly, though the time to settle is measured in…
  • Internet of Things: Fad or Future?

Is it just the latest in a laundry list of tech buzzwords? Or is it something that is really going to change our lives? Let’s begin with a definition. I scoured the Internet for a good definition but never found one that really jived with my concept of IoT. There were many definitions but none exactly agreed with the next definition. The best was, surprisingly enough, from Wikipedia which defines IoT as “the…

    While attending CES 2015, I had a minor epiphany regarding the intersection of design and technology; something new I’d not considered and which I thought might be of interest to others. However, in the course of attempting to distill my thoughts into something digestible, it occurred to me that misunderstandings might (probably would) arise from the various definitions and interpretations which accompany so many common design terms these days. How does one communicate an idea when the terms used to explain it have lost their meaning? In hopes of improving communication in general, I…

  • Kingpinless Casters Are A Viable Challenger To the Caster Throne

    Edwin Rodriguez
    25 Mar 2015 | 1:17 pm
    In the first part of this series discussing the differences between a traditional kingpin swivel caster and a kingpinless caster, we sought to establish the reasons why kingpin swivel casters have led the heavy-duty caster market for many decades. Like any long-ruling monarch, we also learned about the idiosyncrasies that make the reign of the kingpin swivel caster vulnerable to challengers. Compared to its kingpin counterpart, the kingpinless swivel section provides a simpler design that also provides some definitive reliability benefits. This component is constructed of a top plate with a…
  • Is the Kingpin still King? Caster Royalty Stakes Its Claim

    Edwin Rodriguez
    25 Mar 2015 | 12:58 pm
    For generations, industrial caster construction has been ruled by a infallible monarch. Traditional kingpin swivel casters, for decades, have provided royal service to its subjects – handling large enough loads to complete most applications. But no king is without its challengers – and, as we’ll learn in this two-part series, kingpinless design offers a possibility of dethroning the once and mighty. The traditional kingpin swivel caster is composed of several pieces: a top plate, a lower (thrust) race, a lower (thrust) bearing, an upper (load) race, an upper (load) bearing – and of…

    A good industrial caster will offer a multitude of attributes and benefits that will keep your carts – and your manufacturing operation – rolling forward. But if maneuverability tops the list of your industrial caster must-haves, it’s worth considering a heavy-duty caster equipped with a swivel lock. Industrial caster applications involving swivel locks generally feature a combination of the straight-line stability you expect from a quality heavy-duty caster, with the added benefit of being able to lock individual casters into a rigid state to support specific tasks. Generally speaking,…
