FHWA // Hydraulic Engineering Flow Concepts (Videos)

 This series of six videos showcases the use of a portable flume to visualize open-channel flow and culvert design concepts. The specific topics covered in the videos are:

  • Open Channel Flow Concepts: This video covers basic open channel flow concepts including how flow is classified.
  • Grate Inlets: This video demonstrates grate inlets commonly used in storm drain catch basins.
  • Culvert Hydraulics: This video shows how culvert design factors influence flow depths and velocities.
  • Culvert Liners: This video demonstrates how rehabilitative liners may change culvert hydraulic performance.
  • Aquatic Organism Passage: This video introduces aquatic organism passage design concepts for culverts.
  • Energy Dissipators: This video demonstrates the hydraulic performance of a number of culvert energy dissipators.

These ideas and approaches are routinely used in completing highway drainage and stream crossing design projects. We hope that you will watch these videos and share the link with your colleagues in other functional disciplines and in partner agencies.

BMW M2 Coupe // Eyes on Gigi Hadid Teaser.

..:: Video ::..

Style icons like playing games together. That is why we had Gigi Hadid hang out with our first-ever BMW M2 Coupé; the new standard of performance and style. Find out what happens when a super model meets a super-car April 14th. Ready to play #EyesOnGigi?

Fuel consumption and CO2 emissions for the BMW M2 Coupé:
Fuel consumption in l/100 km (combined): 8.5 @[:[7.9]]
CO2 emissions in g/km (combined): 199 @[:[185]]

Further information about the official fuel consumption and the official specific CO2 emissions for new passenger automobiles can be found in the 'New Passenger Vehicle Fuel Consumption and CO2 Emission Guidelines', which are available free of charge at all sales outlets and from DAT Deutsche Automobil Treuhand GmbH, Hellmuth-Hirth-Str. 1, 73760 Ostfildern, Germany and on http://www.dat.de/angebote/verlagspro..."

SEAT Adding // The Perfect Touch to Every Car

SEAT Adding  //  The Perfect Touch to Every Car

"This  material feels  smoother  to me. The feeling  is much  more pleasant  than the  first one" states Sara, who is participating in a blind test conducted by Raul Funes, an engineer  in the SEAT Haptics  department  (interaction involving  touch). There is  a  group  of  professionals  at  SEAT who  are  devoted  to  studying   and  perfecting   the sensations felt by users when they touch the interior elements of a car.

The  work  carried   out  by  Raul  and  his  team  involves   the  "material world"   and   sense perceptions. Although   it may  seem  somewhat   subjective   and  difficult to  assess, in  fact everything  is perfectly  gauged: "We  put in more than three years of work before a car goes on sale", explains Raul. In order to increase the objectivity of sensorial opinions, we carry out more than 150 blind  tests on car parts every year:"We  blindfold  the person performing the test so they can fully concentrate  on tactile  inputs. This is an example  of how we analyse and scale the glide factor and consistency of certain materials''.

And what is the purpose of all this testing? To offer a feeling of authentic quality  through  the use of touch. "Whichever button people touch, they all have to offer the same feeling of consistency. The results of our work can be felt in the small details and overall impression given by the car".

Haptics is in constant evolution  and also adapts to the technologies of the future. Nowadays, the  trend  is  for  individual buttons   to  disappear  now  that  touchscreens  are  gaining in popularity. In this sense, Raul's department  is focussing on defining  the amount of pressure that  customers have to apply to the screen or on making  sure that the layout of all elements is  consistent   with  natural  human  movement.  Likewise,  another  area they  work  on  with haptics  is  in defining  the  spaces  to  house  objects  commonly  used  by  drivers, suc h as a phone, umbrella  or laptop. The objective  is to design  a logical and useful space for storing items, bring spatial order to the interior of the car and ensure functionality.

Achieving the perfect surface feel that a car should provide to its customers is truly a "one-of­ a-kind  job", says Raul. So much so, that every time he explains  what he does, he gets asked "do people really scrutinise every little detail on a car?"

U.S. Department of Transportation Announces $5.3 Million Funding Opportunity to Improve Mobility Focused on Healthcare

WASHINGTON – The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Transit Administration (FTA) today announced the availability of $5.3 million in competitive grant funds to improve public transportation options that increase access to healthcare for those who lack good transportation choices.
“We know it can be challenging for many people to travel to medical appointments, and missing them can lead to re-hospitalizations and poorer health,” said U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx. “This new grant opportunity sets the stage for transit agencies and community organizations to develop local solutions that provide ladders of opportunity, improve health outcomes, and reduce health care costs.”
FTA’s Rides to Wellness Demonstration and Innovative Coordinated Access and Mobility Grants will help build partnerships between health, transportation and other service providers to develop strategies that connect patients with public transportation options. A Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) appeared in today’s Federal Register.
The grants will further FTA’s Rides to Wellness initiative, which emphasizes public transportation as a strategy for people to access health services, resulting in greater preventive care, fewer unnecessary hospital readmissions, and lower costs.  The initiative focuses on improving outcomes for those with chronic conditions and ensuring that at-risk populations can get to wellness visits, healthy food, and community services.
In part to help people take advantage of the healthcare expansion made possible by the Affordable Care Act, Rides to Wellness Coordinated Access and Mobility grants will encourage partnerships between public transportation agencies and the healthcare industry to devise solutions to access challenges.
“We’re excited at this opportunity to fund creative ideas that will result in solutions to the healthcare transportation puzzle,” said FTA Acting Administrator Therese McMillan, who launched the Rides to Wellness initiative last year. “We know that when people have consistent, affordable transportation options to get to their healthcare providers, they receive appropriate preventive care instead of using emergency rooms and suffer fewer costly setbacks.”
The grants will focus on communities demonstrating mobility management, technological solutions, and effective partnerships. Grant applicants must include participating groups with stakeholders from the transportation, healthcare and human service sectors. 
The Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act, signed into law in December, authorizes a pilot program for innovative coordinated access and mobility that augments FTA’s Mobility for Seniors and Individuals with Disabilities (Section 5310) Program. The FAST Act initiated the program with an initial $2 million in first-year funding, expanding to $3.5 million per year by Fiscal Year 2019. FTA supplemented the pilot program with funds from FTA’s Research Program.
