Surveying with GPS has become popular due to the advantages of accuracy, speed, versatility, and economy. The techniques employed are completely different, however, from those of classical surveying. This Static And Rapid-Static Method book features the iG3s by iGage and the XY-001 by TheMarksman for collecting Static and Fast Static GPS observations. This book will walk you through the steps needed to establish a GPS Static and Fast Static network that can be used to set Ground Control Points (GCPs) for survey mapping. "No complicated math or complex geodesy understanding is required." The procedures shown herein are designed to make the process as simple as possible for those that have any surveying experience.

A Rapid Load Test (RLT), developed to determine the initial stiffness and bearing capacity, is an economical and practical alternative to a Static Load Test (SLT). The broad application of RLT, however, was hampered by uncertainty about the interpretation of the test results. This book offers clear guidance on the available analysis techniques and their reliability. The guidelines were related to an international standard that is drawn up by CEN and can be used in two ways: Straightforward interpretation of test results, chapters 1-3 Interpretation with additional background information about the possibilities and limitations, chapters 4-8 The guidelines were drawn up by the Dutch CUR-committee on rapid load testing on piles. Chapters 1 and 2 deal with the practical execution of the test and the presentation of the results. Chapter 3 gives a general overview of existing interpretation methods and refers to step-by-step descriptions of the two advised interpretation methods. The aspects that are important for the interpretation are discussed in chapter 4, also showing that the inertia of the pile should be taken into account. In clay soil the rate effect (the dependency of strength and stiffness on loading rate) is also of importance, whereas in sand and silt the generation of pore water pressures during an RLT plays a role. The velocity of the RLT is such that the reaction of sand and silt might be considered as partially drained. These guidelines indicate how these effects can be compensated to obtain the static resistance in the final results. Chapter 5 presents two interpretation methods (a method for piles in sand, gravel, silt and piles on rock and a method for piles in clay). For practical use, the methods are described in a step-by-step scheme in an appendix.

Arc Welding Control

Written by a pioneer in the field, this book covers all aspects of the emerging technology of arc welding. Part one quantitatively describes the dynamic behavior of arc welding, the power sources used, and their effect on welding technology through the basis of control theory. The second part describes new ways of controlling the welding arc through modern electronics. The next two sections establish the first mathematical model of the arc sensor on the basis of control theory and introduce a new method for measuring weldment temperature fields using the colorimetric-imaging method. The fifth and final section explains the idea of recognizing weld grooves with a three-dimensional vision system and automatic programming of the weld path.

Static Corrections for Seismic Reflection Surveys

Author: Michael J. G. Cox

Publisher: SEG Books

ISBN:

Category: Technology & Engineering

Page: 531

View: 198

This reference manual is designed to enable more geophysicists to appreciate static corrections, especially their limitations, their relationship with near-surface geology, and their impact on the quality of final interpreted sections. The book is addressed to those involved in data acquisition (datum static corrections), data processing (datum static and residual static corrections), and interpretation (the impact that unresolved static corrections, especially the long-wavelength or low-spatial-frequency component, have on the interpretation of the final section). Simple explanations of the underlying principles are included in an attempt to remove some of the mystique of static corrections. The principles involved are illustrated with simple models; these are supplemented with many data examples. This book details differences in approaches that must be considered among 2D, 3D, and crooked-line recordings as well as between P-wave and S-wave surveys. Static corrections are shown to be a simplified yet practical approach to modeling the effects of the near surface where a more correct wavefield or raypath-modeled method may not be efficiently undertaken. Chapters cover near-surface topography and geology; computation of datum static corrections; uphole surveys; refraction surveys; static corrections-limitations and effect on seismic data processes; residual static corrections; and interpretation aspects. An extensive index and a large list of references are included.

Discover best practices to create simple, robust, and scalable software solutions quickly and securely, and focus on what's important - the business and the end customer Key Features Discover strategies and tips for low-code and no-code development with the help of useful examples Build enterprise-scale reactive web and mobile applications Explore the benefits of low-code development Book Description OutSystems is a software development platform that speeds up the build phase by abstracting code and making almost everything visual. This means replacing textual language with visual artifacts that avoid lexical errors and speed up code composition using accelerators and predefined templates. The book begins by walking you through the fundamentals of the technology, along with a general overview of end-to-end web and mobile software development. You'll learn how to configure your personal area in the cloud and use the OutSystems IDE to connect with it. The book then shows you how to build a web application based on the best architectural and developmental practices in the market, and takes the same approach for the mobile paradigm. As you advance, you'll find out how to develop the same application, and the great potential of reusing code from one paradigm in another and the symbiosis between them is showcased.The only application that'll differ from the application in the exercise is the one used in business process technology (BPT), with a focus on a common market use case. By the end of this OutSystems book, you'll be able to develop enterprise-level applications on the web and mobile, integrating them with third parties and other systems on the market. You'll also understand the concepts of performance, security, and software construction and be able to apply them effectively. What you will learn Get to grips with the OutSystems infrastructure Develop reactive web and mobile applications in OutSystems using best practices in Service Studio Define and design Architecture Canvas (3-Layer Canvas) for your applications Integrate with external systems in OutSystems Enhance applications with BPT Manage and monitor your applications in the OutSystems infrastructure Who this book is for This book is for back-end developers, tech leaders, UX/UI developers, frontend developers, (in general, full-stack developers), tech companies, and enterprises looking to learn how to develop web and mobile software quickly and disruptively by leveraging OutSystems, one of the most low-code platforms in the market. An IT background is not mandatory; however, experience in SQL, JavaScript, HTML, CSS, and C# is required to get started with this book.
