3 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 330 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Economic analysis : description and methods by R. D Neathammer ( Book )
6 editions published between 1983 and 1988 in English and held by 184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Economic analysis (EA) is a key part of the resource allocation process for Military Construction (MILCON) and Commercially Financed Facilities (CFF) projects. Results of an EA provide valuable input in deciding which projects to fund for the most cost-effective use of tax dollars. This report provides Army installations with guidance for performing accurate EAs and reporting results properly. This information clarifies the Army policy on EA set by Army Regulation (AR) 11-28 and Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Circular A-104. This report supersedes Technical Report P-151, Economic Analysis: Description and Methods (U.S. Army Construction Engineering Research Laboratory, 1983). The current report updates the previous information and addresses the role of ECONOPACK in performing EAs. ECONPACK is a computer program that automates much of the EA process. It is available on the Programming, Administration, and Execution (PAX) system and in a personal computer version. (sdw)

Environmental Early Warning Systems (EEWS) : user's manual by Robert C Lozar ( Book )
10 editions published between 1986 and 1987 in English and held by 159 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A conceptual description to given for developing the environmental impact demand equations that generate the results displayed on the Environmental Early Warning Systems (EEWS). EEWS, developed for the U.S. Army Forces Command (FORSCOM), is an interactive computer system designed to give FORSCOM planners and decision-makers a quick way to find potential environment-related problems associated with proposed changes in troop strength, mission, facilities, natural resource management, and land use. It is intended to help Army managers during the earliest stages of planning. To support the system's predictive capabilities, potential impacts and demands must be estimated. This report describes how these estimates can be made and how to format them for EEWS compatibility. Included are the steps in carrying out the background research on an area of interest, the way to translate this research into EEWS form, and how to format the data so that, when it is given to a data-loading expert, a smooth transition of responsibility results, with the work entirely documented

Piezoelectric patch sensors for structural integrity monitoring of composite-upgraded masonry and concrete structures ( Book )
1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
An acoustical impedance-based structural integrity monitoring technique employing piezoelectric (PE) patch sensor/actuators was used to detect real-time damage introduced to composite-upgraded wall test specimens. Concrete and brick masonry wall sections externally upgraded with fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) composite materials were subjected to various stresses in a load test machine. During the tests, the wall sections were periodically interrogated via the PE sensor/actuators and electrical impedance measurements were made at various frequencies. When damage was present, the impedance vs frequency signature changed. Furthermore, there was a marked difference between the signature pattern for loading and for debonding of the composite upgrade or cracking of the concrete/masonry substrate. This report includes details on the development of the impedance-based technique and documents a demonstration of the technology on a composite-upgraded pier at Norfolk, VA
Acceptance testing procedures for heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning systems ( Book )
2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Properly operating heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning (HVAC) systems are essential for Army facilities. Operating efficiently, they conserve energy and provide a comfortable, healthy work environment. Current design and construction practices should be capable of producing functional HVAC systems, but there are no assurances of this. Acceptance testing ensures that U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) field offices and installation Directorates of Public Works (DPWs) are receiving properly operating HVAC systems. The objective of this work was to develop simple, accurate procedures for USACE District, Area, and Resident Office construction and engineering personnel, and DPW engineering and operations and maintenance personnel to ensure that a new facility's HVAC system is operating properly and to correct faulty existing HVAC systems. This report contains discussions on and procedures for variable air volume systems, package boilers, chillers, exhaust systems, and hydronic systems
Vegetation map accuracy assessment Fort Benning, Georgia ( Book )
1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In 1993 the U.S. Army Construction Engineering Research Laboratory (CERL) became involved in the United States Geological Survey, Division of Biological Resources/National Park Service (USGS/NPS) National Vegetation Mapping Program by serving as an interagency peer reviewer. This initial involvement led to discussions on vegetation mapping alternatives for military lands and a completed vegetation map for Fort Benning, GA. To validate the vegetation map and help managers realize its potential use as a natural resources and military training management tool, an accuracy assessment was conducted. Armed with a field key to the plant communities on the Fort Benning map and a project sampling design, intensive fieldwork was conducted to collect the data required to assess the vegetation map's accuracy. Field data was analyzed and an error analysis of the map was completed. This report includes lessons learned and recommendations for future vegetation mapping and accuracy assessment projects
Streamlined Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM) tutorial application (RCM.ppt/R6.exe) by Alan Chalifoux ( Book )
1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This report provides an outline of a tutorial and application designed to educate facility managers about efficient building maintenance using Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM). The tutorial evaluates the advantages and disadvantages of four maintenance methods to help maintenance managers evaluate their current equipment maintenance methods. The cost benefits of implementing a different type of RCM based on the cost of maintenance could be significant. RCM can prevent "over maintaining" by saving mechanical labor time as well as maintenance dollars

Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM) guide operating a more effective maintenance program by Alan Chalifoux ( Book )
1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 129 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This manual outlines a comprehensive method of organizing an efficient maintenance program by applying the concepts of Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM). RCM combines professional intuition and a rigorous statistical approach, and recognizes that different maintenance strategies apply to different facility equipment: run-to failure, preventive, predictive, and proactive maintenance. The RCM approach applies these differing maintenance strategies in an optimal mix, to ensure that facility equipment is maintained sufficient to accomplish the facility mission without wasting maintenance labor. This guide is meant to help maintenance supervisors, managers, and technicians organize and operate an efficient and effective maintenance program in an environment of maintenance budget cutbacks
Construction of experimental polyvinyl chloride (PVC) roofing by Myer J Rosenfield ( Book )
6 editions published between 1981 and 1984 in English and held by 128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This report describes the initial construction phase of a projected 2-year field evaluation of sheet-applied elastomeric ethylene propylene diene monomer (EPDM) roofs and liquid-applied elastomeric coating on sprayed polyurethane foam (PUF) roofs. This work is part of a research effort being conducted by the U.S. Army Construction Engineering Research Laboratory (CERL) to attempt to identify alternative, easy-to-install roofing systems that can improve the performance of Army roofing while reducing life-cycle costs. Sprayed PUF roofs coated with sprayed elastomeric material were installed on buildings at Fort Benning, GA; Fort Knox, KY; and Fort Lewis, WA. Sheets of EPDM synthetic rubber were installed on buildings at Forts Benning and Lewis. Built-up roofing systems were installed on buildings at Forts Benning and Lewis (for control purposes). Thermocouples were installed below the insulation on all roofs, and thermocouples and strain guages were installed above the membrane on the EPDM roofs at Forts Benning and Lewis, so that a continuous record could be obtained of heat flows and membrane movement. Samples will be taken from all roofs every 6 months to 2 years for laboratory testing, and the roofs will be visually inspected every year for 10 years. Weather recording stations were installed at Forts Benning and Lewis so that roof temperatures and movements could be coordinated with ambient conditions. (Author)

Potable water pipe inspection at Westover Air Reserve Base, Chicopee, MA by Orange S Marshall ( Book )
2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
An asphaltic sealed, concrete-lined, iron water distribution system was installed at Westover ARB in 1997. Although the city water provided to the system is of good quality, various measures of water quality in the local system indicate that one or more serious problems exist in the Base's water-pipe system. This study conducted a video inspection of the pipe system, analyzed the inspection videotapes, and estimated the percentage of coating losses and cleanliness inside the various sections of water main pipe. The study concluded that the water quality problems were likely due to poor materials and workmanship during system installation, and recommended specific changes in chemical water treatment
Getting started guide for the Small Arms Range Noise Assessment Model (SARNAM) ( Book )
2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Realistic training for soldiers includes firing weapons at small arms ranges on military installations. Noise from these ranges can annoy people living in the surrounding area. In an effort to preserve this critical training, installations having ranges must conduct an evaluation of community noise exposure and develop a plan to minimize annoyance to local residents. The Small Arms Range Noise Assessment Model (SARNAM) is a software program that allows range managers to calculate and display noise level contours and to assess community noise impacts for firing operations at small arms ranges. The program considers the type of weapon and ammunition, the number of rounds fired, the time of day, and range attributes such as range size and barriers. SARNAM is Windows 95/NT software that can be run on desktop computers. This guide contains instructions for the steps needed to create and run a typical case file
Reducing air pollutant emissions from solvent multi-base propellant production by Michael R Kemme ( Book )
1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Radford Army Ammunition Plant, Virginia, is the multi-base propellant manufacturing facility for the Department of Defense (DoD). Solvent multi-base propellant production, however, emits large quantities of volatile organic compounds (VOCs). These VOC emissions are regulated under title I of the Clean Air Act as precursors of tropospheric ozone. The pollutant stream also contains low concentrations of nitroglycerine (NG). The NG content prohibits the use of traditional air pollution control technologies because of safety concerns. This report summarizes the research of CERL and others into alternative air pollution control technologies. Bench-scale tests of sulfuric acid scrubbing, sorptive slurry biodegradation, and ultraviolet (UV) photocatalytic oxidation were conducted. The results of the UV photocatalytic oxidation tests showed the most promise based on safety, economic, and operational considerations and the remaining research effort focused on this technology. UV photocatalytic oxidation was tested on a larger scale to determine its effectiveness. This report describes the results of the larger scale testing and presents a demonstration protocol that can be applied to future full-scale work
