Methodology for Determining Vehicle Usage and Speeds for Mobile Source Emissions Inventories
This paper was published by the Baltimore Regional Council of Governments to document its work in preparing data from its regional road model for input into a computer emissions inventory...

NDE of Steel Bridges by Acoustic Emission
Acoustic emission technique (AE) was used to investigate fatigue cracking phenomenon during a series of laboratory tests of various bridge steels and during field testing of an in-service...

Signal Analysis for Quantitative AE Testing
Quantitative acoustic emission (AE) techniques can be used to monitor crack growth and to deduce microfracture mechanisms in quasi-brittle materials. Multichannel data acquisition systems...

Acoustic Emission Monitoring of Stressed Composite Bars
In this study, Acoustic Emission (AE) technique is used to monitor the behavior of composite bars subjected to direct tension. Aramid Fiber Reinforced Plastics (AFRP) bars were loaded...

Predicting Pollution
For urban areas struggling to meet the requirements of the 1990 Clean Air Act as well as state air-quality mandates, accurate forecasting of mobile emissions is critical to evaluating...

High Speed Rail vs. Maglev in the Quebec City-Windsor Corridor: A Comparison of Energy Impacts and Emissions
This paper reports energy impacts and emissions for two high speed ground transportation systems that are considered for implementation in the Quebec City-Windsor Corridor (Canada). In...

Modern Air Pollution Reduction Technology on Platforms in the Pacific OCS
The Pacific Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) along the California coast line has the most sophisticated air pollution reduction technologies implemented in the world. This paper describes...

Presentation Summary: An Electric Vehicle Future for California

Passive Acoustic Emission for Quantitative Evaluation of Freeze Thaw and Alkali Aggregate Reaction in Concretes
Several experiments are reported in which the progression of freeze thaw (FT), alkali-aggregate reaction (AAR), and internal cracking caused by mechanical loading were monitored using...

Damage Assessment in Concrete Using Acoustic Emission
An acoustic emission (AE) is a localized rapid release of strain energy in a stressed material. This energy release causes stress waves to propagate through the specimen. These acoustic...

Study of Three Dimensional Crack Tip Location of Mortar by Acoustic Emission
Plain mortar specimens were tested under three-point bending. Experimental variables include the width of the specimen and the notch-to-depth ratio. The experimental results of 12 specimens...

Nondestructive Crack Identification by Acoustic Emission Analysis and Ultrasonic Frequency Response
Nondestructive evaluation (NDE) by the acoustic emission (AE) analysis and the ultrasonic testing (UT) on the spectral (frequency) response is studied to identify crack geometry. AE waveform...

VOCs: The New Effluent
The Clean Air Act of 1990, in addition to many state and local regulations, has officials of publicly-owned treatment works (POTWs) shifting their focus, and funds, to air toxic emissions...
