Silt Fence Machine Improves Installation

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

CE Students Spend Time on Professional Side of the Fence

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...

Getting Ahead of Snow and Ice
Winter maintenance is not the same anymore. New weather forecasting technologies are permitting snow and ice fighters to better predict when unsafe winter weather conditions will occur....

Issues in GIS-Based Subsurface Data Management
Obstacles and barriers preclude an interagency GIS application for managing spatially-related subsurface data. Such a system would enable geotechnical and earthquake engineers from state...

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...

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 Fence Operational and Material Testing
The proliferation of snow fence products since the late 1970's presents an opportunity for optimizing the control of drifting snow. It also presents a challenge in discriminating...

Research Study of Highway Snowdrifting in Canada
Millions of dollars are spent annually to maintain Canadian highways in order to make them safe for motorists during the winter. In Ontario, it is estimated that on average $3,000/km of...

Wood Fence Gives Radar Base Clear Signal

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...

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...

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...
