Development of the pipe loop system for determining effectiveness of corrosion control chemicals in potable water systems by Temkar M Prakash( )

5 editions published between 1987 and 1988 in English and held by 308 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the Army's 12,000 miles of water lines, internal corrosion slowly destroys a large investment and creates significant problems for Army water treatment plant operators, who try to maintain the water quality at acceptable levels. Corrosion can be slowed using corrosion-inhibiting chemicals, but it is difficult to measure the extent of corrosion and the effectiveness of inhibitors without excavating actual pipes. This study surveyed corrosion-inhibiting water quality control chemicals and methods for monitoring corrosion. With this knowledge, a pine loop system was developed and installed at Fort Bragg, NC and Fort Monroe, VA. It was shown to be effective in gathering data on corrosion rates. After a standard procedure has been established, this loop will allow a water treatment plant operator to monitor with ease the effectiveness of corrosion-inhibiting treatments. Keywords: Corrosion inhibition; Water pipes; Pipe loop system. (KT)

Considerations for the use of the exterior insulation & finish systems (EIFS) on U.S. Army facilities by United States( )

2 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 272 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Exterior insulation and finish systems (EIFS) are exterior wall claddings consisting of insulation and wet-applied finishes. Finishes are composed of cementitious and/or synthetic materials. EIFS function as a building skin, protecting the building structure from moisture and thermal changes. These systems are barrier type claddings. By design, barrier walls must shed water and prevent moisture from penetrating into the building itself. Hence, all EIFS must perform as waterproofing systems. Moisture protection is attained by providing an integrated system of EIFS layers in which each component serves specific and unique functions. Numerous U.S. Army and Air Force buildings clad with EIFS have recently experienced maintenance problems, localized deterioration, and outright failure. In cases of major failures, remedial work may cost more than $1 million. This report provides technical information and guidance for specifying, reviewing, and/or inspecting EIFS claddings. It also contains a brief history of EIFS, describes EIFS components and different types of EIFS claddings, lists considerations for EIPS selection, and details typical EIFS failure modes. Figures show successful and unsuccessful EIFS condition on military and private sector buildings

Establishing links between U.S. Army facility attributes and mission requirements by William H Flickinger( )

3 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 262 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While Army installation facilities actively help accomplish Army mission requirements, it is sometimes difficult to quantify their contribution. In the climate of shrinking Federal funding, it has become important to present Army facility construction, maintenance, and repair programs in a context that clearly shows their relationship to the overall Army mission, as high-priority tasks. A facility's mission and/or functional responsiveness can be seriously compromised when facility requirements or unit missions are scaled down because the relationship between well-maintained facilities and the Army's 'mission readiness' has been downplayed or misunderstood. This interim report establishes some of the relationships between facility attributes and the Army's mission requirements. A literature search and survey of Army installation commanders showed that a unit's mission readiness is directly related to equipment maintenance and to personnel turnover. Mission readiness is indirectly related to other maintenance and repair functions, and to 'quality of life' factors that affect personnel turnover. Later stages of this research will devise a model to quantify and measure the effects of facility attributes on Army mission requirements to help properly prioritize facility construction, maintenance, and repair projects
Operational noise data for the LACV-30 air cushion vehicle by Paul Schomer( )

4 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 257 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Operational data for the LACV-30 air cushion vehicle were gathered and developed into sound exposure level vs. distance curves. These data are available for the Army Environmental Hygiene Agency (AEHA) to use in developing noise zone maps for LACV-30 operations in support of the Army Installation Compatible Use Program (ICUZ). ICUZ defines Hand use compatible with various noise levels and establishes a policy for achieving such uses. Although the Army classifies the LACV-30 as an amphibious vehicle, an examination of its noise characteristics and operations showed it most closely resembles a helicopter. Thus the methodology for gathering rotary wing aircraft data was used. Measurements of LACV-30's passby runs over water at various distances and speeds were similar in concept to flyover and flyby measurements for helicopters, and the land maneuver measurements corresponded most nearly to a helicopter's hover measurements. Keywords: Noise(Sound), and Sound exposure level

Construction of aluminum standing-seam roofing at an Army facility by Myer J Rosenfield( )

3 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report documents the construction and instrumentation of an aluminum standing-seam roofing system on a Defense Logistics Agency warehouse. The condition and performance of the system are being checked and tested at periodic intervals to determine its behavior over annual cycles and to evaluate its capacity for long-term, trouble-free service. This portion of the study observed the construction of the warehouse roof, including the specifications, materials, and building procedures used. Future studies will investigate the effects of corrosion on the aluminum panels and continue evaluations of temperatures and movement related to the system. The data will then be used to evaluate the roofing system's behavior over two annual cycles. This type of system shows promise of being a good, long-lasting reroofing system for replacing deteriorated BUR, which is commonly used at Army installations. The contractor who installed the roof used good building practices, and these procedures can serve as a model for future installations of this type of roofing. (Author)

Cartographic issues in the development of a digital GRASS database by Marilyn S Ruiz( )

3 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 219 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The process of building a complete and useful database for the Geographic Resource Analysis Support System (GRASS), a geographic information system (GIS), is complex and costly. If data are entered or manipulated incorrectly, the result can be large, costly body of useless geographic information. The likelihood of such mistakes arises in part from a user's misunderstanding of basic differences between digital map data and conventional analog paper maps. Additionally, a number of environmental planners have been faced with the necessity of creating or editing GRASS databases without substantial training in cartographic concepts or the use of GIS. This report provides information that will help minimize mistakes commonly made in the creation and modification of GRASS databases. GRASS is now used widely at military installations, and by numerous other public and private agencies. This report answers some of the questions most frequently asked by GRASS users throughout the public and private sectors. The contents of this report are drawn largely from the collective experience of researchers at the U.S. Army Construction Engineering Research Laboratory (USACERL), where GRASS was developed. Issues addressed include software-specific matters, the characteristics of digital cartographic databases, the relationship between digital and analog maps in general, and the preparation of analog map information for conversion into digital data

The Regulations and Compliance Expertise (RACE) knowledge-base system : description and user guide( Book )

3 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Army regulation 200-1 and Air Force regulation 19-1 require the respective military installations to institute environmental protection programs directed toward all environmental media. The objective of this effort was to create a knowledge-based communication medium for compliance assessors to obtain information, policy, interpretations, and advice from military lawyers and other bulletin board users with environmental compliance expertise. This system allows rapid dissemination of compliance information and self-contained updating. The RACE program is a knowledge-based system designed to provide: 1) a vehicle for communication among personnel dealing with compliance assessment; 2) a data base for user contributions and updates; and 3) a variety of information services that can be continuously expanded. The system allows self-contained updating, systematic analysis of alternatives, and selection of optimal technologies. Example sessions contained in this report illustrate the use of various keyboard commands. RACE is available as a prototype system in the Environmental Technical Information System (ETIS), which can be accessed by almost any computer or terminal attached to a modem and phone line. (edc)

Economic evaluation of air stripping to remove volatile organic compounds from water by Hany H Zaghloul( Book )

2 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report documents the results of a study conducted to provide a basis for estimating the costs of installing and using air stripping to remove volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from water. The air stripping technology was found to be a very economical and efficient method for contaminant removal. The technology is simple, relatively inexpensive to install, and has low labor and maintenance requirements. VOC removal rates range from 90 to 99.99 percent. Estimated costs, in terms of percentage of total production costs, were found to be 40 percent for capital costs, 50 percent for operational costs, and 10 percent for maintenance costs, according to literature sources. Results of a survey conducted during this study generally agree with these percentages, except that maintenance costs reported on the survey were lower due to the highly automated nature of new installations
