Crossing boundaries, building bridges: comparing the history of women engineers, 1870s-1990s

Ladies engineers were within the public limelight for many years, but we now have unusually little traditionally grounded figuring out of the styles of employment and schooling of girls during this box. such a lot experiences are both coverage papers or restricted to statistical analyses. additionally, the scant ancient learn thus far to be had emphasizes the person, unmarried and particular personality of these ladies operating in engineering, frequently utilizing anecdotal facts yet ignoring higher concerns just like the styles of the labour marketplace and academic associations.

And approaches that are unique to people of their encoding, storing, deciphering and retrieving spatial wisdom for numerous initiatives. The authors current and talk about connectionist versions of cognitive maps that are in keeping with neighborhood illustration, as opposed to types that are according to disbursed illustration, in addition to connectionist versions referring to language and spatial family members.

For that reason, casing suppliers should be able to provide RHCP charts for their products in various casing diameters, SDR and Schedules. These should be consulted to determine whether or not they are adequate or inadequate for a proposed application. 7 is an example generic RHCP table for thermoplastic well casing. 8 lists minimal thermoplastic wall thicknesses. 5 SDR 17 SDR 21 PVC 470' 224 115 59 Al3S 412 196 100 51 SR 376 180 92 47 Plastic Casing Material SDR 26 'The figures provided in this table are approximations for infomation only.

The down-thehole method involves a pneumatically operated bottom-hole drill that efficiently combines the percussion action of cable tool drilling with the turning action of rotary drilling. The pneumatic drill can be used on a standard rotary rig with an air compressor of sufficient capacity. It is used for fast and economical drilling of medium to extremely hard formations. Fast penetration results from the blows transmitted directly to the bit by the air piston. As in air rotary, air circulation flushes the bit and canies cuttings to the surface.

A pulldown spread footing is installed around the well and the jacking force on the casing achieved by pulling down on the casing with the ram end of two to four hydraulic jacks. The cylinder end is secured to the spread footing so that force is applied firmly and exactly parallel to the axis of the borehole (plumb if vertical) (Figure 2). The load pressure (which may approach 300 T) must not exceed the yield strength of the casing. Only steel casing can be employed if jacking is the installation method chosen.
