Stanford Geological Atlas Of Great Britain And Ireland -1907

Excerpt from Stanford's Geological Atlas of serious Britain and eire: With Plates of attribute FossilsThe scope of this paintings has been enlarged via the addition of a caricature of the geological positive aspects of eire, its counties and major strains of railway; and the topic is illustrated by way of a geological map of the rustic, and via 3 illustrations borrowed from Professor E.

Applied Coastal Geomorphology

This quantity is a set of papers, preceded by way of an introductory essay, on coastal physiography. the entire authors have made major contributions to the topic. they're of alternative nationalities and the papers are, intentionally, now not all fresh ones. during this publication emphasis has been laid totally on concerns that are of common instead of neighborhood or perhaps nearby price.

C. c. potentials are picked up by the electrodes if there is a traction system in the area. Both of these forms of interference can be eliminated by testing with alternating current at a frequency different from that of the interfering power currents and their harmonics. This is usually achieved by using a frequency of about 60 Hz to 90 Hz. © BSI 05-1999 If the source of power for the measurement is a hand driven generator, the frequency of the measuring current can be varied to obtain the best result.

When generation is by a number of sets which may operate in parallel, protective earthing of the generator frames and associated metalwork follows the same lines as that described for one machine. However, the method of system earthing for the windings is influenced by the magnitude of the circulating currents, commonly third harmonic, which can flow in the neutral/earthing conductors. g. zig-zag wound machines). Alternatively one of the following arrangements may be used. a) A neutral earthing transformer connected between the phases and earth.

Modern jointing techniques do not ensure electrical continuity of metallic pipes. g. for oil, gas, compressed air or drainage, should be bonded to the protective conductors but not used as the sole means of earthing. Where, in an existing installation, a service pipe has been used as the sole earth electrode, another means of earthing should be provided. 13 Earthing cathodically protected structures Cathodic protection is normally applied to wholly or partly buried ferrous structures in order to counteract electrolytic corrosion.
