Hydraulic Press vs Duct Tape

Hydraulic Press vs Duct Tape

00 [Image Source: HPS] Well understood as the universe’s ultimate quick fixer-upper, duct tape has become synonymous with the world’s most useful tool. The tape has been used in every home project, as well as previously demonstrating its ability to lift a car. However, the tape is not only Earthbound. In fact, NASA swears by it, using it in many missions in past history, recent or otherwise. It has saved lives- it is the ultimate…

Mesmerizing Manhole Cutting Machine Makes Drilling in Roads a Breeze

Mesmerizing Manhole Cutting Machine Makes Drilling in Roads a Breeze

00 Manholes are essential to maintaining underground sewage and pipe networks, but repairing them can get a little tricky. For the most part, engineers try to avoid placing manholes under roadways, but many times there is no getting around it. A manhole is needed ever place where a sewer line needs to make a turn, or they are placed at designated intervals based on local code and engineer’s discretion. Manholes in roadways will sink over…

Giant Cofferdams Allow for Construction Underwater

Giant Cofferdams Allow for Construction Underwater

00 When engineers need to build supporting structures in areas that would otherwise be underwater, they construct temporary walls called cofferdams. A cofferdam is a wall structure that is built into the floor of a water basin, made watertight, then the water is pumped out to allow for a dry workspace. In terms of geotechnical engineering, the process isn’t as simple as just pushing walls into the ground, engineers have to carefully desing the structure…
