Environmental Technology Verfication Report for Installation of Silt Fence Using the Tommy Static Slicing Method
Prepared by the Environmental Technology Evaluation Center (EvTEC), a CERF Innovation Center. This verification report describes a field evaluation...

Staking Your Claim
If you buy land, you have certain legal protections ensuring that no one can take it away from you without your consent. You can put a fence around it, you can prohibit trespassers and...

Wind Load Reduction by Porous Fences on Low-rise Buildings

Measuring the Effect of Sediment Fences for Wetland Creation and Restoration in Louisiana
A sediment erosion table (SET) method has been developed to monitor changes over time in intertidal mudflat or pond elevations with an accuracy in the 1.5 mm range. The SET permitted rapid...

An Overview of Louisiana's 1991-92 Christmas Tree-Brush Fence Program
A project to alleviate coastal land loss in Louisiana through the construction of sediment-trap fencing using recycled Christmas trees is described. It has been demonstrated that Christmas...

Use of Rigid Insulation Below Grade for Roadways and Parking Areas
Minnesota Power's Herbert Service Center is located 3 miles north of downtown Duluth, Minnesota. The facility, constructed in 1967, consists of primary buildings, cold storage...

Functioning of Multi-Row Sand Fences in Forming Foredunes
Foredunes on sandy beaches are best developed through use of a series of fences by which dune height and width can be controlled. In a previous paper, the authors examined the functioning...

Snow Fencing to Increase Streamflow on Rangelands
Snow deposition and water yield were increased 55% and 127% respectively, and duration of surface runoff was lengthened 17 days in response to snow fencing a sagebrush-covered watershed...

Hydrogeology Comes to the Surface
Before concluding whether groundwater is safe or contaminated, engineers must understand the science of hydrogeology. If they don't understand hydrogeology, unnecessary and...

Domed Renovations
Inside the granddaddy of domed stadiums, the Houston Astrodome, 10,000 new seats and 72 new suites were hung from a strengthened structure. Using a variety of working-with-what-we've-got...

Timber Wave Fence for Marina Protection

Simulation of Sand Accumulation Around Fences

Function of Sand Fences in Controlling Wind-Blown Sand

Judicial Solutions to Beach Access Problems in New Jersey
Legal doctrines notwithstanding, access to public trust beach is still, in many locations, inconvenient, expensive, or impossible. Private property signs containing threats of fines or...

Timber Wave Fence for Marine Protection

Stabilization of Dunes with Flexible Mattresses
Dunes, constantly moving due to influences of sea and wind, are inherently unstable and in many, if not most situations, are best left in their natural state of change. Where there is...

Control of Adverse Wind Near Buildings
The characteristics of basic flow modules associated with an isolated building, a fence and building combination, and a building with various canopies in a simulated atmospheric boundary...

Flow Past Fence in Turbulent Boundary Layer
The flow past a fence submerged in a turbulent boundary layer is studied experimentally. The characteristics of the flow both upstream and downstream of the fence are presented. The variation...

Predicting Sand Deposition at Porous Fences
For porous fences of limited height and infinite length, measurements of boundary shear stress are reported in air flow normal to the fence plane. On the assumption that boundary shear...

The Floating Cover: Best Way to Cover a Finished-Water Reservoir—
With the increased attention being given to drinking-water quality in recent years, many states have been pressuring towns and cities to cover their open, finished-water reservoirs. Years...
