Concept for a Lunar Array for Very Low Frequency Radio Astronomy
We discuss the design considerations relevant to a very low frequency array, to be deployed on the lunar near side during an early expedition. Such an array would operate in the frequency...

Computerized Transportation/Financial Planning Processes
The Computerized Transportation/Financial Planning Process (CTFP) comprises a battery of programs that collectively form a valuable growth management tool. CTFP incorporates four spreadsheet...

Commuting Computing
Portable computers come in many different shapes and sizes and boast many of the same features as desktop machines. Unlike desktop PCs, however, the key to getting the most use out of...

Instant Landmark
The 42 story curved glass facade of an $80 million structure at 17 State St. is destined to appear on the New York City postcards that show the tip of Manhattan Island. The site offers...

Waste Processing: Makes Good Energy
Materials separation in solid wastes streams will generate more BTU's at waste-to-energy facilities. The removal of noncombustibles like bottles, batteries and refrigerators...

Running Rucus II on a Microcomputer
Since the preliminary version of the RUCUS II (Run Cutting and Scheduling System) was released by UMTA in 1982, the system has achieved considerable acceptance by transit properties. These...

Factory Chic
Developers of the International Design Center of New York have recently spent $163 million to convert an unused chewing gum factory and a former battery plant into a showcase for New York...

Transportation Innovations that Would Banish America's Energy Crisis
Despite the current oil glut, the energy crisis is still very much with us. Within the next few decades, the U.S. will nearly exhaust economically recoverable petroleum. The key to solving...

Simple Sampler Activation and Recording System
A simple sampler activating device that resulted in automated sample procurement and simultaneous hydrograph time-stage notation was developed as part of a project to assess the impact...

NY's Building Boom
A report on a highly visible part of New York City's infrastructure, its buildings. An apparent resurgence of construction activity is underway; over one billion dollars in...

Control of Salt-Water Intrusion by Recharge Wells
The present investigation involves study of the effect of a battery of recharge wells on control of salt water in coastal confined aquifers. In each investigation, the battery has a specific...

Optimizing Selection of Marine Retaining Walls
The factors involved in selecting an appropriate perimeter bulkhead or retaining structure for waterfront developments are examined with particular emphasis on conditions in New York Harbor....

Automated Valves for Surface Irrigation Pipelines
Automatic low pressure pipeline valves and the associated controls for surface irrigation are described. Design information for 6-in., 8-in., and 10-in. (150-mm, 200-mm, and 250-mm) valves...

Optical Current Meter Use in Southern California
The optical current meter is a stroboscopic device with which an operator may visually follow and gage the velocity of particles moving on the water surface. From early prototypes the...

Two Innovations for Improving Harbor Resonators
The results of an experimental study on two aspects of resonator behavior for harbor entrances are presented. The first aspect involves a battery of three resonators tuned to cover a wide...

Operational Experience with Snow Pillows in California
A pressure pillow system is described for use in measuring snow water equivalent in a snowpack. These pillows used in conjunction with coding devices and radio systems can transmit the...
