An articulated vehicle is a vehicle which has a permanent or semi-permanent pivoting joint in its construction, allowing the vehicle to turn more sharply. There are many kinds of articulated vehicles, from heavy equipment to buses, trams and trains.

Rigid Frame Versus Articulated Trucks

Rigid Frame Versus Articulated Trucks

Rigid frame trucks are designed to haul large, abrasive, rocky materials on well maintained haul roads, says Scott Knoblauch, senior consultant with Caterpillar Inc. “Grades under 15% and long-haul road distances have minimal effect on rigid frame truck performance,” he says. “They also are designed to run well on long

Hydraulics 101 (for Those Who Skipped It in College)

Hydraulics 101 (for Those Who Skipped It in College)

At a loss when hydraulic engineers start throwing out fancy terms like unsteady flow, allowable shear stress, hydraulic radius, Manning’s “n”, or 100-year flood? As a professional working with these technical individuals and their reports, it’s essential that you fully understand “where they are coming from”.

Introduction to RUSLE2 – Applications for Construction Site Erosion Control

Introduction to RUSLE2 – Applications for Construction Site Erosion Control

Do you know your RUSLE2?

Join Terry Toy and David Lightle as they discuss the Revised Universal Soil Loss Equation (RUSLE2) and how you can utilize RUSLE2 to estimate erosion on construction sites based upon the climate, soils, topography, surface cover, and management practices.

The Revised Universal Soil Loss Equation (RUSLE, ver.

Advanced Stormwater Treatment: Dissolved Pollutants

Advanced Stormwater Treatment: Dissolved Pollutants

Did you know that on average in stormwater, 45% of the phosphorus load and ~50% of the metal load (cadmium, copper, zinc, etc.) is present in dissolved form? And unfortunately, most of these dissolved pollutants travel downstream to our receiving water bodies and wildlife untreated (thanks to physical treatments which
