While reinforced concrete was coming into general use as a structural material much space in the technical press was given to discussions and reports on the durability of the encased iron.

  • Electrolytic corrosion in reniforced concrete

    While reinforced concrete was coming into general use as a structural material much space in the technical press was given to discussions and reports on the durability of the encased iron. The results from a large number of experiments gave fairly conclusive evidence that under ordinary conditions the iron is protected, and that even if it was rusty when placed in the concrete, it will be free from the oxide after remaining in the concrete for some time. The time test on the durability of practical structures is, of course, the final arbiter, and for each year the increasing data bears out the assumption that properly constructed concrete-steel structures will stand indefinitely.

  • The intelligent concrete: a new, economical technique for architectural shielding of buildings

    An innovative technique is presented for global shielding of new or renovated large facilities, whereas ordinary concrete is replaced by special filament- loaded concrete plus a steel mesh surface covering, resulting in a superior Shielding Effectiveness. The screen-mesh provides excellent reflection characteristics below ≈ 100MHz, progressively replaced by the absorption losses of metallic fibers that takes over above 50-100MHz. Besides the material itself, this "intelligent concrete©" offers the advantage of being incorporated while the prime building work is in progress, using techniques that impede very little the classical construction routines, and still result in a facility whose shielding performances, reaching 50-60dB, are widely sufficent for the needs of critical sites. An ensemble of specific mouting hardware for the interior finition is also described that allows to take advantage of the material properties without the seams and penetration leakages often found in such applications.

  • Indoor and outdoor substations in Pennsylvania

    This paper covers some points in substation design for installations for the lower voltages, including choice of location, type of building and arrangement of electrical apparatus. The subject is treated in three divisions, namely: customers' substations fed from the distribution system, customers' substations fed from the transmission system and company's substations. Attention is called to some of the advantages of both the outdoor and indoor substations for each of the different divisions. Points to be considered in the selection of locations for substations are outlined and several types of buildings, particularly the one of concrete slab construction, are described. Attention is also called to different arrangements of electrical equipments, which may be employed for installations of various sizes. Different schemes for installing high-tension switchboard apparatus are considered, attention being called to the open wire and the cell structure installations, with special reference to the concrete cell structure and the method employed in its construction.

  • A visit to the Panama Canal

    I was fortunate in being able to make the Panama trip as one of the A. I. E.

  • Cement in central station design

    The Illinois Steel Company has just completed and placed in operation at its plant in South Chicago, a new power-house for the supply of power to its various mills at South Chicago, and at Buffington, 10 miles distant. This station contains, at the present time, two units, each consisting of a 2000-kw., 25-cycle, 2200-volt, three-phase generator, direct driven by a 24-in. by 60-in. by 48-in. horizontal-vertical, cross-compound engine. The addition of two more generating units, of a capacity of 4000 kw. each, is contemplated in the near future. This alternating-current station operates in conjunction with a direct-current station which has been in operation for some time. The two power-houses are connected by means of synchronous converters. Both stations take steam from blast-furnace boiler-houses, in which the fuel is excess blast-furnace gas. The supply of this excess gas is quite variable at times, and it is desirable under such conditions to be able to shift load from one station to the other, as desired. Such an arrangement gives the opportunity of utilizing completely all excess blast-furnace gas at either point. The principal points of interest with which we are concerned to-night, deal entirely with the use of cement in the building of this and other power- houses.

  • Robotic Machine for High-Quality Shotcreting Process

    This paper summarizes the development of the technologies used to produce high quality sprayed concrete layers by robotizing a commercial shotcreting machine and automating the process used in the tunnelling construction industry. The proposed method provides the control system with the information of the properties of the pumping process, controlling the quality of the concrete layer by adjusting in real-time the trajectory of the shotcreting machine. Given the unstructured nature of the tunnelling construction method there is an inherent difficulty in the automation of the shotcreting process. A complete description of the implemented control architecture of the shotcreting machine, the automated shotcreting process, the real-time quality layer prediction and the analysis of the tests made in real sites are shown in this paper.

  • Discussion on “foundations for transmission line towers and tower erection” (Walls, Leeper, Mitchell, Downing, Connery), and “four years' operating experience on a high-tension transmission line” (Bang), Deer Park, Md., June 29, 1915. (see proceedings for June and July, 1915)

    R. J. McClelland: As a large part of the transmission line tower failures in the past have been due to weakness in the foundations or footings, rather than in the towers themselves, the topic under discussion is a pertinent one. Lack of complete information on the behavior of tower foundations in different soils has doubtless been largely responsible for such unsuitable designs and methods as have been employed, and transmission line engineers have come to an appreciation of the need of thorough acquaintance with the soil conditions with which they have to deal in any given case. This has led to making not only test pits along the route, but to conducting tests on sample foundations in place at different points.
