Improving a pavement-watering method on the basis of pavement surface temperature measurements

  CERN Preprints

Summary: Pavement-watering has been studied since the 1990's and is currently considered a promising tool for urban heat island reduction and climate change adaptation. However, possible future water resource availability problems require that water consumption be optimized. Although pavement heat flux can be studied to improve pavement-watering methods (frequency and water consumption), these measurements are costly and require invasive construction work to install appropriate sensors in a dense urban environment. Therefore, we analyzed measurements of pavement surface temperatures in search of alternative information relevant to this goal. It was found that high frequency surface temperature measurements (more than every 5 minutes) made by an infrared camera can provide enough information to optimize the watering frequency. Furthermore, if the water retaining capacity of the studied pavement is known, optimization of total water consumption is possible on the sole basis of surface temperature measurements.

of heavy metals in pavement runoff

  CiteSeer

Summary: The transport of anthropogenic constituents by runoff from urban roadways can adversely impact the quality of adjacent receiving waters and soils. Metal elements are the most persistent constituents found in pavement runoff. A section of urban highway pavement in Cincinnati, Ohio, USA with an average daily traffic count of 150 000 vehicles was instrumented to sample lateral sheet flow from the pavement. Field samples from two diverse rainfall runoff events were analyzed to determine metal element partitioning between dissolved and pa~iculate-bound fractions. Results indicate that dissolved metal element washoff response is a function of the degree to which a metal element is in dissolved form. Irrespective of the degree to which a metal element is dissolved, the particulate-bound metal element washoff response is mainly a function of rainfall intensity. Results indicate that for both events Cu, Cd, Zn and Ni are mainly in dissolved form while Al and Fe are mainly in particulate-bound form. Cr and Pb partitioning is intermediate to these two cases. These findings can assist in the development of effective control strategies to immobilize dissolved and particulate-bound metal elements in pavement runoff.

Evaluation of Cost Effective Material for Maintenance of Flexible Pavement

  CiteSeer

Summary: Abstract Pavements represent an important infrastructure facility in all countries. Two important parameters for good pavements are pavement design and materials. A good design of bituminous mix is expected to result in a mix which is adequately strong, durable and at the same time environment friendly and economical in order to maintain the pavement. This work is undertaken to prepare cost effective material for maintenance of flexible pavement. By using industrial wastes steel slag and foundry sand as a replacement material for fine aggregate in bituminous mix and ground granulated blast furnace slag as a replacement material for fillers in bituminous mix. Fillers play an important role in engineering properties of bituminous paving mixes. Conventionally stone dust, cement and lime are used as fillers.

Finite Element Investigation of the Deterioration of Doweled Rigid Pavements

  Physics (arXiv)

Summary: The purpose of this study is to describe the failure of concrete around dowel bars in jointed rigid pavements, and the resulting effect on the pavement performance. In fact, under repetitive vehicle loading, concrete in contact with the dowel bar deteriorates, particularly at the joint face. The degradation of concrete around the dowel negatively affects the latter's performance in terms of transferring wheel loads through vertical shear action. In this context, a nonlinear 3D Finite Element analysis was performed using the commercial FE code Abaqus (v-6.11). The FE model was validated with classical analytical solutions of shear and moment along the dowel. A concrete damaged plasticity model was used for the PCC slab to model the degradation of concrete matrix around the dowels under incremental loading. Results obtained show, among other things, that the degradation of concrete matrix around the dowel was found to initiate at the face of the joint and propagate towards the interior of the dowel. Also, results obtained confirmed the decrease in load transfer capability of the dowels as the PCC matrix deteriorates. The central dowels under the wheel load lost a significant portion of their load-transfer capacity as the PCC matrix around them deteriorated, while dowels farther away from the wheel load became more engaged in load transfer.

Cost-Effectiveness of Crack Sealing Materials and Techniques for Asphalt Pavements 7. Author(s)

  CiteSeer

Summary: Sealing or filling cracked asphalt pavements to prevent the intrusion of water into the pavement structure has long been an accepted practice of the Montana Department of Transportation (MDT). The goals of this research are to establish the most economical and effective method of sealing pavement cracks for Montana; and to better determine the role of crack sealing within Montanas pavement management system (PvMS). This study has involved the construction of four experimental test sites within larger crack sealing projects. These test sites have included combinations of eleven sealant materials and six sealing techniques. Monitoring of the test sites includes visual inspections (for all of the sites) and nondestructive structural readings and surface distress identification under Montanas PvMS (for one test location).

TECHNIQUE JSLS Percutaneous Endoscopic Treatment of Bleeding Gastric Ulcers

  CiteSeer

Summary: Bleeding gastric ulcers have a propensity to occur in the critically ill and elderly. Various treatments include endoscopic or surgical intervention. The endoscopic route may have as high as a 25 percent rebleeding rate and a 50 to 90 percent rebleeding rate if there is a visible vessel. Surgical intervention has a mortality rate of as high as 25 percent. Described is a procedure which combines endoscopic and surgical techniques for the treatment of bleeding gastric ulcers- the percutaneous endoscopic method. To evaluate the technique and efficacy of this procedure, a bleeding ulcer was created in a porcine stomach with multiple applications of standard biopsy forceps. After brisk hemorrhage developed, the percutaneous endoscopic method was employed and cessation of bleeding obtained. The entire procedure was completed within 20 minutes. There were no immediate complications. Overall costs were much less than those for routine general surgery and about the same as for placement of percutaneous gastrostomy tube. Key Words: Endoscopy, Gastric ulcer.

Accession No. 4. Title and Subtitle Automatic Inspection of Pavement Cracking Distress

  CiteSeer

Summary: This paper presents the image-processing algorithm customized for high-speed, real-time inspection of pavement cracking. In the algorithm, a pavement image is divided into grid cells of 8 x 8 pixels, and each cell is classified as a non-crack or crack cell using the grayscale information of the border pixels. Whether a crack cell can be regarded as a basic element (or seed) depends on its contrast to the neighboring cells. A number of crack seeds can be called a crack cluster if they fall on a linear string. A crack cluster corresponds to a dark strip in the original image that may or may not be a section of a real crack. Additional conditions to verify a crack cluster include the requirements in the contrast, width, and length of the strip. If verified crack clusters are oriented in similar directions, they will be joined to become one crack. Because many operations are performed on crack seeds rather than on the original image, crack detection can be executed simultaneously when the frame grabber is forming a new image, which permits a real-time, online pavement survey. The trial test results show good repeatability and accuracy when multiple surveys were conducted in different driving conditions. 17.

A Case of Successful Colonoscopic Treatment of Acute Appendiceal Bleeding by Endoclips

  CiteSeer

Summary: Lower gastrointestinal bleeding is a common disease among elderly patients. The common sources of lower gastrointestinal bleeding include vascular disease, Crohns disease, neoplasm, inflammatory bowel disease, hemorrhoid, and ischemic colitis. However, bleeding from the appendix has been reported very rarely in patients with lower gastrointestinal tract bleeding. In general, after a colonoscopic diagnosis of appendiceal bleeding, a laparoscopic or surgical appendectomy would be recommended. We report a case of successful colonoscopic treatment of appendiceal bleeding without complications by endoclips. This report suggests that colonoscopic clipping is a safe and effective means to treat bleeding from appendiceal lesions. Further study is needed to evaluate procedure-related complications and to confirm the procedures safety and efficacy.

Potential Applications of the Static and Dynamic Cone Penetrometers in MDOT Pavement Design and Construction

  CiteSeer

Summary: This report discusses the current applications of the dynamic and static cone penetrometers in pavement design and construction. The dynamic cone penetrometer (DCP) is the most versatile rapid, in situ evaluation device currently available. Correlations to CBR, unconfined compressive strength, resilient modulus, and shear strengths, and its use in performance evaluation of pavement layers make it an attractive alternative to more expensive and time consuming procedures. Many useful correlations between the DCP penetration index and other material properties continue to be reported. Other possible applications of DCP such as its use in the quality control of compaction of fill are discussed. In addition, advantages and disadvantages of the penetrometer testing are reported. The static cone penetrometer has also several applications in such areas as the evaluation of resilient modulus of cohesive soils, estimation of CBR, and the determination of relative density of sands.

CONCRETE PAVEMENTS CONTRIBUTE TO DECARBONISING OF TRANSPORT Photo: W. Kramer UP TO 6 % FUEL SAVINGS FOR HEAVY TRUCKS RIDING ON CONCRETE PAVEMENTS THIS CAN ALREADY MAKE THE DIFFERENCE TODAY!

  CiteSeer

Summary: Sustainable construction, congestion relief and fuel consumption are issues mentioned in the objectives of our association EUPAVE. Developing a more sustainable network of transport infrastructure across Europe and countering the climate change by CO2 reduction is on the other hand one of the objectives of the EU. This brochure is about the common aspects of these two goals and shows how concrete pavements can contribute to this. The longevity and durability of concrete structures is well-known. Just like the fact that concrete pavements hardly need any maintenance, which makes that traffic is less disturbed and congestion is avoided. But who knows that concrete roads can contribute to CO2 reduction, even if the opposite often is told? There are several direct positive aspects of concrete which are present throughout the lifetime of the pavement: the uptake of CO2 in the hardened concrete, the light reflectivity of a concrete surface which contributes to the cooling of our planet and last but not least: the reduced fuel consumption of heavy vehicles riding on a nondeformable pavement. This third aspect will be highlighted in this publication, based on a number of international studies and researches. We also encourage any additional research, preferably on European scale, to confirm the results which all show a benefit for concrete pavements. We are convinced that this is useful information in a decision making process for sustainable road infrastructure and we hope that one day it can be part in evaluation procedures for green public procurement.

IMMUNOLOCALIZATION OF PROTON PUMPS (H +-ATPase) IN PAVEMENT CELLS OF RAINBOW TROUT GILL

  CiteSeer

Summary: The expression of the V-type proton ATPase (H +-ATPase) was examined in the gill of the freshwater rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) using immunocytochemistry in concert with laser scanning confocal or electron microscopy. A synthetic peptide consisting of the carboxyterminal region of the 31 kDa subunit of the bovine renal H +-ATPase was used to generate an antiserum in rabbits, and its suitability for use in trout gill was confirmed by western blotting. Gill epithelial cells demonstrated specific immunoreactivity, the intensity of which was increased markedly after 18 h of exposure to hypercapnia (1 % CO2 in air). The increased intensity of H +-ATPase immunoreactivity was associated with elevated branchial net acid excretion. In the hypercapnic fish, the specific immunoreactivity was associated with both the apical Summary membrane and cytoplasm. Electron microscopy revealed that specific immunoreactivity was localized to the pavement cells and was particularly associated with the apical membrane and subapical cytoplasmic vesicles. The increased H +-ATPase immunoreactivity in the epithelial cells of hypercapnic fish and the increased intensity of the immunoreactive bands in western blots from hypercapnic fish demonstrate an up-regulation of this protein in response to respiratory acidosis. The results are discussed with reference to current models of acidbase and ion regulation in the gill of freshwater fish. Key words: Oncorhynchus mykiss, rainbow trout, H +-ATPase, pavement cell, laser scanning confocal microscopy, gill epithelium, immunocytochemistry.

Accession No. 4. Title and Subtitle Development of an Automatic Pavement Surface Distress Inspection System 7. Author(s)

  CiteSeer

Summary: This paper presents a newly developed image-processing algorithm that was customized for high-speed, realtime inspection of pavement cracking. The algorithm was based on the "grid cell " analysis, in which a pavement image is divided into grid cells of 8x8 pixels and each cell is classified as a non-crack cell or a crack cell based on the statistics of the grayscales of the cell pixels. Whether a crack cell can be regarded as a basic element (or seed) depends on its contrast to the neighboring cells. If a number of crack seeds can be called a crack cluster if they can form a linear string. A crack cluster should correspond to a dark strip in the original pavement image that may or may not be a section of a real crack. Additional conditions to verify a crack cluster include the requirements in the contrast, width and length of the strip. If verified crack clusters are oriented in similar directions, they can be joined to become one crack. Because many operations are performed on crack seeds rather than on the original image, crack detection can be done simultaneously when the frame grabber is forming a new image from the linescan camera. This high-speed process algorithm permits real-time, highway speed pavement survey. The trial test results show a good repeatability and accuracy when the system conducts multiple surveys and runs at different speeds and different weather conditions. 17. Key Words

The Anesthesiologists Impact on Bleeding Control During Liver Surgery

  CiteSeer

Summary: Abstract: Liver surgery is often associated with increased likelihood of massive bleeding. The blood loss is one of major intraoperative issue the surgical team must deal with. Bleeding is usually present in cirrhotic patients but can be faced even in the patients with normal liver function undergoing liver surgery. Correction of preoperative abnormal coagulations tests, strong interaction between the surgeon and the anesthesiologist, and finally the anesthesia technique, may successfully reduce the bleeding intensity and blood transfusions requirements. This review will be focused only in the anesthesiologists role in minimizing the blood loss during major liver surgery.

  CiteSeer

Summary: The evaluation of the volcanic rocks at Ngurore quarry for use in pavements and other concretes was carried out in order to discover the source of the incessant structural and road failures where this important resource was used in the area. The sieve analysis carried out on the coarse aggregates all fall within the British standard limits. The average aggregate crushing value (ACV) and the aggregate impact value (AIV) obtained from the evaluations is 28.7 % and 29.5 % respectively and are within the acceptable standard limits. The specific gravity and water absorption gave average values of 2.60 and 0.22 % respectively while the flakiness index obtained from the analysis is 26.7%. The results from the series of analysis all suggest that the rocks are suitable for both asphaltic and structural use as reinforced concretes.

Simulation of Tissue Cutting and Bleeding for Laparoscopic Surgery Using Auxiliary Surfaces

  CiteSeer

Summary: . Realistic simulation of tissue cutting and bleeding is important components of a surgical simulator that are addressed in this study. Surgeons use a number of instruments to perform incision and dissection of tissues during minimally invasive surgery. For example, a coagulating hook is used to tear and spread the tissue that surrounds organs and scissors are used to dissect the cystic duct during laparoscopic cholecystectomy. During the execution of these procedures, bleeding may occur and blood flows over the tissue surfaces. We have developed computationally fast algorithms to display (1) tissue cutting and (2) bleeding in virtual environments with applications to laparoscopic surgery. Cutting through soft tissue generates an infinitesimally thin slit until the sides of the surface are separated from each other. Simulation of an incision through tissue surface is modeled in three steps: first, the collisions between the instrument and the tissue surface are detected as the simulate...

Detection of Bleeding in Wireless Capsule Endoscopy Images Using Range Ratio Color

  CERN Preprints

Summary: Wireless Capsule Endoscopy (WCE) is device to detect abnormalities in colon,esophagus,small intestinal and stomach, to distinguish bleeding in WCE images from non bleeding is a hard job by human reviewing and very time consuming. Consequently, automation for classifying bleeding frames not only will expedite the process but will reduce the burden on the doctors. Using the purity of the red color we can detect the Bleeding areas in WCE images. But, we could find various intensity of red color values in different parts of the small intestinal,so it is not enough to depend on the red color feature alone. We select RGB(Red,Green,Blue) because it takes raw level values and it is easy to use. In this paper we will put range ratio color for each of R,G,and B. Therefore, we divide each image into multiple pixels and apply the range ratio color condition for each pixel. Then we count the number of the pixels that achieved our condition. If the number of pixels grater than zero, then the frame is classified as a bleedi...

Analysis of Durability of Advanced Cementitious Materials for Rigid Pavement Construction in California Report Prepared for CALIFORNIA DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION

  CiteSeer

Summary: this report. Two forms of aggregate reactions known to occur in California are addressed: alkaliaggregate reaction and oxidation reactions. The alkali aggregate reaction is greatly dependent upon the alkali content of the cement. Clays used in the manufacture of Portland cements may contribute high alkali concentrations to the pore solution. Low-alkali Portland cements may be specified when needed to provide resistance to alkali-aggregate reactions. Portland-pozzolan blends and calcium aluminate cements and blends are expected to exhibit improved alkaliaggregate reaction resistance in sulfate-rich environments, while the resistance of calcium sulfoaluminate cements is expected to be similar to that of Portland cement. Fly ash-based cements may exhibit improved resistance, but the alkali concentration contributed by the set accelerator should be investigated. The oxidation of sulfide and sulfate minerals, such as pyrite, in aggregate may cause concrete cracking and aggregate pop-outs. Portland-pozzolan blends and fly ash-based cements are expected to exhibit improved resistance to this oxidation reaction because of decreased permeability to water. Carbonation or chloride attack from CaCl 2 -containing admixtures, seawater, or de-icing salts may initiate corrosion of steel dowels, which are used to transfer load between pavement slabs. The Building Code limits the maximum chloride ion content for the purpose of corrosion protection of reinforced concrete to 0.15 percent by weight of cement. In addition to low chloride content, low concrete permeability and high pore solution alkalinity are essential for corrosion resistance. Low permeability concrete produced from Portland cement, Portlandpozzolan blends, and calcium sulfoaluminate cements is expected provide resistance t...

METHOD OF TEST FOR DETERMINING SUITABILITY OF MATERIALS FOR OVERLAYMENT AND REPAIR OF PORTLAND CEMENT CONCRETE PAVEMENT AND STRUCTURES

  CiteSeer

Summary: Prior to handling test materials, performing equipment setups, and/or conducting this method, testers are required to read SAFETY AND HEALTH in Part 8, Section G of this method. It is the responsibility of the user of this method to consult and use departmental safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations before any testing is performed. A. SCOPE This method covers the procedures to be used to determine the suitability of organic and inorganic materials to be used for overlay of Portland cement concrete pavement or structures or for patching spalls in Portland cement concrete. Material set time, compressive strength, flexural strength, bonding strength, chord modulus of elasticity, specific gravity, and absorption are covered. Further testing may be necessary to fully evaluate most materials. This standard may involve hazardous materials, operations, and equipment. This standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems associated with its use. This test method is divided into the following parts: 1. Method of test for compressive strength and flow of overlay and patching materials (using 50-mm cube specimens). 2. Method of test for set time of concrete overlay and patching material by Gillmore Needles. 3. Method for fabricating concrete specimens of overlay and patching materials. 4. Method of test for flexural strength of concrete overlay and patching materials. 5. Method of test for bonding strength of concrete overlay and patching materials to PCC. 6. Method for fabricating PCC blocks for use in the bond test. 7. Method of test for chord modulus of elasticity of concrete overlay and patching specimens (compressometer method). 8. Method of test for specific gravity and absorption of concrete overlay and patching materials.

  CiteSeer

Summary: Sixteen patients with persistent (n 11) or recurrent (n 5) variceal bleeding after injection sclerotherapy and balloon tamponade were treated with an intravenous infusion of somatostatin 250/g/ h. Somatostatin infusion successfully controlled the bleeding in 15 of the 16 patients but one rebled after 72 h of treatment. In one patient with poor liver function (Childs C) bleeding was not controlled by somatostatin, further injection sclerotherapy or balloon tamponade of the oesophagus. The results of this study, although uncontrolled and with a small number of patients, suggest that somatostatin is a very effective treatment for the control of post-injection sclerotherapy variceal bleeding.

  CiteSeer

Summary: # The Author(s) 2011. This article is published with open access at Springerlink.com Abstract Upper gastrointestinal bleeding is the most common gastrointestinal emergency, with peptic ulcer as the most common cause. Appropriate resuscitation followed by early endoscopy for diagnosis and treatment are of major importance in these patients. Endoscopy is recommended within 24 h of presentation. Endoscopic therapy is indicated for patients with high-risk stigmata, in particular those with active bleeding and visible vessels. The role of endoscopic therapy for ulcers with adherent clots remains to be elucidated. Ablative or mechanical therapies are superior to epinephrine injection alone in terms of prevention of rebleeding. The application of an ulcer-covering hemospray is a new promising tool. High dose proton pump inhibitors should be administered intravenously for 72 h after endoscopy in high-risk patients. Helicobacter pylori should be tested for in all patients with peptic ulcer bleeding and eradicated if positive. These recommendations have been captured in a recent international guideline.

Performance of Pavement Crack Sealants in Cold

  CiteSeer

Summary: Twelve bituminous hot-pour crack sealants were evaluated over four years in temperatures ranging from --40C to +40C. Each sealant was evaluated over 900 linear meters of transverse and longitudinal routs of 12 (width depth). Results show that sealant source, rout size, and rout orientation affected sealant performance, i.e., debonding and pull-out levels. Debonding levels were 0--50% and pull-out levels 0--30%. Sealant failure was proportional to rout width; it was lowest in 12 mm wide routs and highest in 40 mm wide routs. This result is attributed to the proportional exposure of sealants to slow moving traffic. The increase of sealant failure over time was also found to be nonlinear. Three stages were identified in the failure--time plot. In stage 1, failure is rapid; in stage 2, it plateaus; and in stage 3, it increases again. Failure in stage 1 is thought to be related mainly to a weak sealant -- asphalt concrete interface, whereas that in stage 3 is thought to be related to sealant weathering and stiffening. It was also found that standard test results correlate poorly with field performance.

Summary: The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) spends over $250 million per year to maintain almost 200,000 miles of roadway with more than 450 million vehicle miles per day. Seal coats are very important for the Departments preventive maintenance program. Seal coats are one of the most important elements of pavement maintenance because they slow down pavement deterioration. It is less expensive to seal coat roads with low traffic volumes every few years than it is to overlay or completely replace the road. Seal coats also beautify and seal the road from water. In addition, seal coats are instrumental in maintaining and recovering skid resistance, which is a major safety requirement in pavement maintenance. The purpose of this research project is to develop an objective technique to accurately evaluate pavement distresses including raveling (loss of aggregate) and excess binder (flushing or bleeding). Current methods available to evaluate seal coat distresses are very subjective and they include visual inspection by different people. This method is subject to different interpretation by the different inspectors with different levels of knowledge and experience on pavement distresses. Currently, there is no method based on equipment measurements to scientifically evaluate the performance of seal coats and reduce the subjective ness of seal coat performance evaluations. A methodology based on texture could be an option to measure seal coat performance as affected by flushing and raveling.

Improving Technical Characteristics of Asphalt Pavement Using Wastes of Polystyrene Disposable Dishes

  CiteSeer

Summary: Abstract: Due to widespread use of disposable dishes and their 500-600 years recycling and also carcinogenicity, the goal of this laboratory study is to investigate the possibility of using polystyrene (PS) disposable dishes wastes in making asphalt surfaces to decrease environmental problems in recycling and burial of these materials and also to analyze their effect on technical characteristics of asphalt mixtures. In addition, PS materials are used in four methods: 1-added to bitumen, 2-bitumen replaced with PS, 3-added to aggregates, 4- same-sized soft aggregates replaced with PS. In each of aforementioned instances, bitumen or asphalt mixture technical characteristics change much or a little. PS can resolve major problems of water percolation and drainage in asphalt surfaces and the obtained asphalt mixture has more strength and resistance to control sample. Consequently, while using the obtained mixture improves asphalt mixtures properties and reduces the consumption of aggregates, it exploits large amounts of PS wastes in civil engineering constructions. Key words: Asphalt surfaces Disposable dishes Polystyrene (PS) Wastes Environment

A Laboratory Study of Cyclic Plate Load Test on Lime and Rice Husk Ash Treated Marine Clay Subgrade Flexible Pavements

  CiteSeer

Summary: ABSTRACT: Marine clay is an impermeable soil, meaning it holds water, as opposed to permeable soil that allows water to rapidly drain, like a gravel or sand. It is also an expansive soil, such as the marine clay which predominates in almost all countries of the world, which when shrinking or expanding, can damage foundations and structures. The shrink and swell movements are due to changes in soil moisture. Providing uniform soil moisture next to and under your foundation is the only best thing to reduce or minimize the damaging effects of expansive soil. These soils are highly saturated, soft, sensitive and normally consolidated. These usually have low density and low shear strength. The present study involves a study on the strength characteristics of Rice Husk Ash and Lime treated marine clay based on the cyclic plate load test criteria.

IV. HEMOGLOBIN INJECTIONS AND CONSERVATION OF PIGMENT BY KIDNEY, LIVER AND SPLEEN THE INFLUENCE OF DIET AND BLEEDING

  CiteSeer

Summary: Our interest in the conservation of hemoglobin in anemia has been touched upon in the first paper of this series. Having demonstrated that injected hemoglobin was completdy conserved in experimental anemia (9), we wished to understand the mechanism of this reaction and its rdated internal body metabolism. That the liver and spleen played significant r61es in this conservation was to be anticipated but the importance of the kidney, unexpected as it was, comes out dearly in the experiments tabulated below. We now fed that it can be stated with confidence that the kidney must rate in importance dose to the liver and spleen in rdation to hemoglobin conservation under certain conditions. This applies particularly to various types of hemoglobinemia which approach the minimal renal threshold levels as established in Paper I. When a considerable number of daily hemoglobin intravenous injections are given dose to or above the minimal renal threshold we find abundant deposits of iron staining (hemosiderin) pigment in the kidney, liver and spleen. From the amount of such pigment in the liver and spleen however, one cannot estimate even approximately the total amount of hemoglobin injected. In the kidney if the daily hemoglobin injections are continued at a levd below the minimum or depression or glomerular threshold (Paper I) we find no hemosiderin in the epithelium of the convoluted tubules even though 48 to 54 gin. hemoglobin be given over a considerable period (3 months) (Dogs

Summary: opercular epithelia were dissected and subjected to bloodside hypertonic bathing solution in Ussing-style chambers to simulate the increase in blood osmolality during migration to sea water. Conversely, seawater-acclimated killifish opercular epithelia were subjected to hypotonic bathing solutions to simulate the initial stages of migration to fresh water. Freshwater-acclimation (hypertonic stress) induced a rapid (approximately 30 min) increase in membrane conductance (Gt) from 3.100.56 to 7.521.15 mS cm?2 (P<0.01, N=27), whereas seawater-acclimation (hypotonic stress) induced a rapid decrease in Gt from 8.221.15 to 4.411.00 mS cm?2 (P<0.01, N=27; means S.E.M.). Control seawateracclimated membranes had a density of apical crypts (where chloride cells are exposed to the environment; detected by scanning electron microscopy) of 113396.4 crypts mm?2 (N=12), whereas the hypotonically shocked specimens had a lower crypt density of 87036.7 crypts mm?2 (P<0.01 N=10; means S.E.M.).

Summary: Pavements in four European countries were measured for their tire noise performance in a manner identical to that done in the States of California and Arizona. This allowed the comparison of pavements that provided a range of noise performance from quiet to noisy and the examination of different pavements design approaches between Europe and the southwestern states. A total of sixtyeight pavements were measured in Europe for comparison to over two hundred pavements measured in California and Arizona. This comparison indicated that the range of pavement tire noise levels was similar between both regions with the quietest European pavements performing slightly better than the best in California or Arizona. Several constructions not generally in use in the U.S. were evaluated in Europe and found to perform well within their respective pavement category. These included double layer porous asphalt of fine aggregate size, porous Portland cement concrete, and exposed fineaggregate Portland cement concrete. Pavements common to both Europe and California and Arizona produced similarly noise levels when pavement textures and aggregate sizes were considered.

Summary: This paper addresses these inadequacies while focusing on critical elements of pavement analysis such as modeling of pavement materials, the road pavement structure and traffic loading. The paper also discusses a new approach to pavement analysis, which benefits from recent developments in material science and engineering mechanics, to demonstrate its effectiveness in addressing urban road engineering requirements. The success of the proposed new approach lies in its ability to accurately determine the state of stress associated with realistic traffic loading conditions, an essential element in producing the information necessary for making correct design decisions. Of particular importance is the ability of the new approach to account for pavement inservice condition while predicting performance, a factor completely ignored in current pavement analysis exercises aimed at selecting the appropriate rehabilitation measure and proceed with its design

Author manuscript, published in "TRB 82nd Annual Meeting (Transportation Research Board), France (2003)" Do et al. 1 Full Scale Tests for the Assessment of Wear of Pavement Surfaces

  CiteSeer

Summary: The paper deals with the assessment of wear of road surfaces subjected to traffic. Full-scale tests were performed by means of LCPC Carousel facilities to simulate passages of truck tires under pure cornering maneuver. Three types of road surface were tested. Up to 800 000 passages were performed and measurements of tire and road characteristics were carried out at different wear stages. Results were presented in term of evolution of skid resistance as well as macro- and microtexture of road surfaces. Tire wear was simply assessed by tire groove depth evolution. Discussion was focused on the relationship between evolutions of road surface microtexture and tire groove depths to assess road aggressiveness vis--vis tire wear. The study is part of European TROWS project that the main objective is to derive experimental and numerical tools to predict tire and road wear.

  CiteSeer

Summary: An estimated 10 million tons of waste shingles are generated every year in the United States [1]. Most of these wasted shingles are post-consumer, tear-off roofing shingles; the remainder are factory scraps. Though asphalt shingle recycling is a new industry in the United States, a number of potential markets exist. Currently, potential end markets for recycled asphalt shingles include: feed stock for hot mix asphalt (HMA) and cold patch, dust and erosion control on rural roads, aggregate for road bases, recycling into new shingles, and fuel. This project, conducted by the State of Vermonts Agency of Natural Resources, focuses on road applications for asphalt shingles including its use as aggregate, cold patch and HMA. A variety of obstacles exist in the collection, processing and marketing of used asphalt shingles. Asbestos contamination is an ongoing concern. Other contaminants, including nails, need to be thoroughly separated from tear-off shingles during processing before the final product is released. Of all the potential markets for recycled asphalt shingles, its use in HMA has been the subject of the most national research. Factory scrap shingles are preferred for HMA due to their uniformity

ANTI SKID METHODS AND MATERIALS-SKID EFFECTS AND THEIR REMEDIAL METHODS

  CiteSeer

Summary: Skid resistance is the force developed when a tyre is prevented from rotating along the pavement surface. Skid resistance is thought of as a pavement property, it is the antonym of slipperiness. Among other road surface conditions, slippery pavement during precipitation is of great concern to road safety authorities. Some statistics indicate that the number of accidents increases by up to two folds during rainy conditions. Loss of skid resistance affects driver's ability to control vehicle. In addition to increasing the stopping distance while braking, lower skid resistance reduces steering controllability since both braking and steering depend on tire-pavement friction. In this paper mainly the methods of proper laying of pavements, various materials used to improver skid resistance, measurement of anti skid values such as
