Zonal Disintegration Effect of Deep Straight Wall Semicircular Arch with Different Roadway Heights

Jiao Zhang, Huifang Li
In order to study the zonal disintegration effect of deep straight wall semicircular arch roadway with different roadway heights, FLAC3D numerical simulation software was used to systematically study the characteristics of plastic zone, surrounding rock deformation and surrounding rock abutment pressure distribution. The results show that: the rupture zone at the floor of straight wall semicircular arch roadway develops layer by layer in the form of “” and the displacement isoline at the roof is...

Wind Turbines: Why Some Families Living in Proximity to Wind Energy Facilities Contemplate Vacating Their Homes: An Overview of Findings

Carmen M. Krogh, Robert Y. McMurtry, W. Ben Johnson, Anne Dumbrille, Mariana Alves-Pereira, Jerry L. Punch, Debra Hughes, Linda Rogers, Robert W. Rand, Richard James, Stephen E. Ambrose, Lorrie Gillis
Background: Some families living near wind energy facilities report permanently vacating their homes while others contemplate doing so. While these events are reported on the Internet and social media, research is lacking. This study explored why some people living in proximity to wind turbines contemplate such housing decisions. Methods: This ethics-reviewed study used the Grounded Theory methodology and audio recorded interviews with those who had previously lived, or were currently living nea...

Déja vu and Wind Turbines: A Review of Lived Experiences after Appeals of Ontario Industrial-Scale Wind Power Facilities

Jane Wilson, Carmen Krogh, Paula C. Peel
This paper is a review of reports of lived experiences of residents in rural/small-town Ontario, Canada and a comparison to the concerns raised during citizen-sponsored appeals of industrial-scale wind power project approvals. We found that the concerns leading to the decisions to appeal power projects have been borne out in real-life experience, as government documents record thousands of complaints about adverse effects on the environment and human health. These findings support the need for e...

Highway Stopping Sight Distance, Decision Sight Distance, and Passing Sight Distance Based on AASHTO Models

Azad Abdulhafedh
Highway sight distance is a measure of roadway visibility, which is an important factor in the assessment of road safety. Greater visibility can provide motorists more time to avoid crashes and conflicts, facilitating safe and efficient operation. However, poor visibility can reduce the driver’s ability to react to changing conditions and is a significant factor in roadway crashes and near collisions. A driver’s ability to view ambient roadway conditions is necessary for safe operation of a vehi...

Preliminary Results: Exploring Why Some Families Living in Proximity to Wind Turbine Facilities Contemplate Vacating Their Homes—A Community-Based Study

Carmen M. Krogh, Robert Y. McMurtry, Anne Dumbrille, Debra Hughes, Lorrie Gillis
In Ontario, Canada, between 2006 and the end of 2016, government records provided by the former Ontario Ministry of Environment and Climate Change documented that neighbors living near industrial wind turbine (IWT) facilities filed 4574 noise complaints/incident reports. In some cases, these records also included occurrences of adverse health effects being experienced by some of those living near the IWT facilities [1]. The risk of harm associated with living n

Magnetic Field Application: An Underappreciated Outstanding Technology

Djamel Ghernaout, Noureddine Elboughdiri
In diverse machines, as much as 90% of all particles suspended in the oil can be iron or steel and can be particularly troublesome to operators. This article looks at magnetic filtration advantages and benefits; moreover, it focuses on how this physical technology can often outperform traditional methods. Mag-netic filtration is a process in which two objects are separated; one of them has to be metallic, to be attracted by means
