Visualizing Metrology and Potholes in Building Materials

Nondestructive metrology techniques are beneficial when it comes to analyzing building materials, particularly concrete and pavement. Metrology can also be invaluable when it comes to assessing potholes and the overall status of roadways. By performing metrological tests, these techniques offer the ability to inspect large structures and infrastructure. That said, gaining the precise metrology measurements is a challenging task in these areas due to the heterogeneous nature of both building materials and road surfaces. Below are a few modern approaches to visualizing metrology information in building material. Optical 3D metrology can be used to characterize building material qualities. Capturing thousands of frames per second, optical systems use stereo cameras to assess both singular points and total surfaces. The system is particularly valuable when it comes to metrological analysis during mechanical testing, when it can gather 3D data on displacements and strains within a material. This approach saves time, supplies useful data and can reveal optimal applications for materials. The fact that it offers both point and surface examinations makes an optical metrology system espe...

New Sutton Hoo Movie Rights the Wrongs of Archaeological Snobbery

The new Sutton Hoo movie, called The Dig, that is due to be released on Netflix is going to tell the real story behind one of Britain’s greatest archaeological discoveries. It dramatizes the excavation at Sutton Hoo in England that changed our understanding of the history of Europe in the Dark Ages . It will also address a decades-old injustice and finally gives credit to the amateur archaeologist who was behind the historic discovery. The movie focuses on the discoveries made at Sutton Hoo in Eastern England, by a self-taught archaeologist, Basil Brown, who was born near Ipswich in 1888. He had been a farmer, milkman and woodcutter, before securing a job with Ipswich Museum. Brown was poor and had no formal education in archaeology, but he had made some important historical finds in previous years. Brown was a simple country fellow and often used string to hold up his work pants. In 1938 a local widow by the name of Edith Pretty asked Ipswich Museum to excavate some 18 mounds on her land. These were well-known to locals and were the source of many legends. The museum sent out Brown, who was the only person available to investigate the site and he was later helped by Mrs. Pretty...

Deep litter or cage system? Find out which gives the most returns on investment

Jairus Lamwe collects eggs at Jay Farm in Kakamega from his 600 layers which he rears under the battery cage system. This system makes it easy to monitor laying percentage in your flock. FILE PHOTO | NATION MEDIA GROUP  Broadly, there are different systems of rearing chicken namely free-range (extensive), semi-intensive, folding units and intensive systems. To a large extent, chicken production especially at commercial level, heavily relies on intensive systems, with the common ones being battery cage and deep litter systems. The choice of system to use is mainly dictated by available resources with deep litter undisputedly being the most widely used across the country. In recent years, battery cage has been gaining popularity, making farmers choose between the two based on purpose and preference. Briefly, battery cage system entails rearing birds in compartment units where floors are of standard strong galvanised wire (plastic also available) that slope from back to the front. This allows eggs laid to roll out of the cage to a receiving gutter while food receptacles are outside the cage and water supplied with pipes bearing drinking nipples. Deep litter, on the other hand, is a...

RECORD RAIN: 100mm+ recorded across parts of Lockyer Valley

IT’S BY no means drought breaking, but the rain received across the Lockyer Valley and Somerset region last night hasn’t gone unappreciated. Gatton Star readers have reported rainfall totals of more than 100mm at some locations across the region. A storm front sat stationary across the western end of the region late yesterday afternoon, dumping more than 75mm of rain near Mount Sylvia, causing flash flooding and debris across Mount Sylvia Road, Tenthill Road and Ingoldsby Road. Mahala Dixie Doolan recorded 103mm at her Ropeley property, and was grateful for the rain, saying on the Gatton Star’s Facebook page there was no flood damage but a few fences down. Mahala, a rodeo rider, had been carting water for their small herd of cattle and 20 horses for the past 16 months at her 300-acre property. “We have been carting water for 16 months now for all our stock, so this rain has given us a massive relief.” Residents to the east weren’t as lucky, with Linda Reck reporting 13mm at Mulgowie and Annette Kilpatrick reporting 23mm at Sumemrholm. The Bureau of Meterology is predicting a 90 per cent chance of more rain today, with the possibility of a thun...

N.C. Sheriffs Find 18,000 Pounds Of Toilet Paper And Other Products In Stolen Truck : Coronavirus Live Updates : NPR

Stealing a truck that’s hauling about 18,000 pounds of bathroom paper products during a global pandemic during which the commodity has become invaluable to the panicked public likely falls into the all-caps category. On Wednesday, deputies from the Guilford County Sheriff’s office in North Carolina said they came across the 18-wheel tractor trailer as it was traveling on Interstate 40 in Whitsett. It is unclear why they decided to follow the vehicle, but deputies said the excursion paid off. They followed the truck to a warehouse/dock facility near the interstate. “After further investigation, it was determined the 53′ foot Hyundai dry-van trailer was reported stolen locally and was being utilized to transport nearly 18,000 pounds of commercial, bathroom paper products,” the department said. Empty shelves in paper goods aisles may have made a tractor trailer full of toilet paper an attractive target.

Folded-plastic kayak is made to be cheap and transportable

While kayaks are great for exploring your local waterways, they’re also pretty awkward to transport – especially if you don’t have a car-top carrier. The Tucktec is designed with that in mind, as it folds together from a single sheet of plastic. Invented by South Carolina-based paddler Dan Norton, the Tucktec measures 10 ft long (305 cm) by 31 inches wide (79 cm) … once it’s folded into shape, that is, which is said to take about two minutes. When not in use, it folds down into a rectangular package measuring 48 by 15 by 8 inches (122 by 38 by 20 cm). It weighs 28 lb (12.7 kg), and can accommodate a user/cargo payload of up to 350 lb (158.7 kg). Eco-minded potential buyers will be glad to hear that it’s made of 100-percent recycled high-density polyethylene, which can be recycled again once the kayak is discarded. That hopefully shouldn’t be anytime soon, though, as its reinforced fold lines are reportedly good for thousands of fold/unfold cycles. Along with the main kayak body itself, the Tucktec kit also includes an adjustable seat and padded footrest, foam sponsons along the sides, a paddle, a dry bag, and a retractable skeg (a rear tracking fin)...
