Integral Secures Subcontract for NSF Research

Integral Consulting Inc. (Integral), as part of a subcontract with Stanford University, will collaborate on an award from the National Science Foundation (NSF) for research designed to improve sediment fate and transport models.

The project, “Improved Observation and Parameterization of Bottom Boundary Layer Turbulence and Particle Properties for Sediment Fate and Transport Modeling,” extends through September 2020.

Used to help answer environmental questions, sediment fate and transport models can quantify and forecast the environmental effects of cleanup efforts, the potential for reliable natural recovery, and possible impacts of extreme events such as severe storms and hurricanes.

Novel acoustical and optical instrumentation will be deployed in the wave-driven estuarine waters of San Francisco Bay to collect a suite of field data to directly observe relationships between physical dynamics and biogeochemical properties of suspended particles.

Linking academic-level researchers directly with consultants actively involved in Superfund cleanup, the project will also support the doctoral research of two graduate students.

They will be advised by a diverse group and trained in advanced computational fluid dynamics and acoustic and optical field instrumentation, as well as practical aspects of environmental engineering.

3rd International Congress Hydraulic Engineering Structures and Dredging

Russia’s leading maritime industry Media Group PortNews (www.portnews.ru) holds a traditional annual Congress “Hydraulic Engineering Structures and Dredging” in Moscow. 

The two-day Congress includes the 7th International Forum of Dredging Companies and the 3rd Technical Conference “Modern Solutions for Hydraulic Engineering”.

Infrastructure development is among the real sources of Russia’s economy growth. Construction of port facilities and new hydraulic engineering structures on the country’s inland waterways constitute an essential part of all infrastructure projects. It is important to take into account the best international practices to implement these projects effectively.

The program of the Congress will be devoted to the latest technologies for dredging and hydraulic engineering works. Speakers and delegates will refer to real projects to discuss specifics features of dredging works, as well as dedicated fleet and equipment involved.
