Scales (weigh scales, scales, etc.) are devices to measure weight or calculate mass. Spring balances or spring scales measure weight (force) by balancing the force due to gravity against the force on a spring, whereas a balance or pair of scales using a balance beam compares masses by balancing the weight due to the mass of an object against the weight of a known mass or masses.

Geosynthetics for Roadway Construction

Geosynthetics for Roadway Construction

Ever since the Romans used palm fronds and other plant fiber matting to reinforce the sub-bases of their famous roads, fabrics have been used to improve road longevity and performance. Modern road construction methods rely on a family of materials called geosynthetics to achieve the same results. But these more sophisticated materials can

As this article reports, recently drought-stricken California has so far this year received enough rain to provide a year’s worth of water for 14 million people—more than a third of the state’s population— if only we had a

An Approach for Communities to Assess Stormwater Application and Detention Requirements for Overall Watershed Health

An Approach for Communities to Assess Stormwater Application and Detention Requirements for Overall Watershed Health

Communities, especially those with limited resources, face many issues when trying to protect their local watersheds through the use of stormwater policies. Stormwater policies that are imposed on new development have the ability to enhance a community’s overall watershed health (Ferguson 1998). However, past requirements often relate only to large

Great Water Tech Announces Public School Drinking Water Initiative

Great Water Tech has announced a special initiative aimed at preventing lead contamination in the drinking water of America’s schools. Schools have faced a disproportionate amount of issues with lead contamination in their water systems due to a lack of funding available for updating plumbing in aging buildings. Great Water

Reuse: Global Reach, Local Impact

In just 14 years, the United Nations estimates the world will only have 60% of the water resources it needs, if we do nothing different. Obvious solutions to water scarcity can include water reuse, wastewater reclamation, and conservation. But, what if we are just hitting the tip of the iceberg
