Assessing Water Resource Demand in New York City
Kyle Monahan, Clarkson University
An exercise assessing the water demand of New York City and population dynamics underlying that demand is provided. Visualization of first order water resource estimates using precipitation data and a known water storage volume are used to draw conclusions about drought risk and the sustainability of NYC water supplies.
Seismic Evaluation of Buildings
Dr.G.P.Ganapathy, VIT University, Vellore 632014, India
Check list to retrofitting of buildings based on Rapid Seimic evaluation of the buildings
Runoff Generation from Varying Land Surfaces
Freddi-Jo Bruschke, California State University-Fullerton
Experimental lab activity and lesson exploring runoff generation from different types of land surfaces.
Air and Water Quality Optimization Related to Open Pit Mining
Mark Koopman, University of Utah
The module is not sufficiently developed to be summarized.
How to Create a Well Log for Use in Geothermal Bore Field Design
Kevin Amende, Montana State University-Bozeman
This activity is intended to provide a foundation in soil classification and well log creation for mechanical engineers who would like to design geothermal bore fields. Having an understanding of geoscience allows mechanical engineers to make educated decisions when trying to associate soil thermal properties for these designs.
Finding Soil Material for a Construction Project
Tej Gautam, Marietta College
For this activity, students will prepare soil maps and data tables. Using 'Web Soil Survey (WSS)', a small area around Marietta City will be chosen and possible sites for acquiring soil as a construction material for an engineering project will be determined.
Simulating Mineral Industry Drilling and Processing Lab
Joel Aquino, Gainesville State College
Students simulate two processes applied by the mineral industry - drilling and mineral processing. In the drilling activity, students create a 3D model of a hidden object inside a shoebox by using bamboo skewers as their drilling machines. The second activity on mineral processing challenges the students to design and implement a flowchart on how to separate the individual components of a water-oil laden mineral mixture.
Using Real World Data to Study Soil Foundation Structure Interaction
Thalia Anagnos, San Jose State University
Soil-Foundation-Structure-Interaction (SFSI) is an important consideration when studying the impact of earthquakes on structures. A video and an online module introduce students to some basics concepts of SFSI.
