New FAA Drone Regulations & Restrictions

by Fred Jorgensen

New rules set by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), taking effect in August, open the sky to the commercial use of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), and legislate the current guidelines for personal use. The additional rules for commercial use are: a pilot registration system and protocol to waive certain FAA restrictions. The waiver system is the most significant new rule. With the proper waivers, companies can now legally provide customers with a wide variety of UAS based services.

Safety and Security of LNG Powered Cruise Ships

by Kevin Mueller

Historically, cruise ships utilize large diesel engines and transmissions (similar to vehicles) to generate the power needed for propulsion. As cruise ships became larger and the demand for electricity substantially increased, diesel-electric engines became the norm with hybrid propulsion systems. While improvements have been made on the propulsion system with more advanced propellers, fundamentally the power system for cruise ships have remained unchanged for years. The technology to power ships using alternative fuels such as LNG has been available for quite some time, but the infrastructure needed for wide-spread operation does not fully exist.

Protecting Our Infrastructure From Hydrocarbon Fires

by Kevin Mueller

The 2013 “Report Card for America’s Infrastructure,” published by the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), rates the current state of our country’s infrastructure as a D+. Anyone who went through the public education system in the United States knows that D+ is barely above failure. The estimated investment for infrastructure alone needed by the year 2020 is $3.6 trillion, just under the entire 2016 United States government budget submitted by President Obama to Congress. While the task may seem daunting considering the required investment comes out to over $11k per capita (based on the United States Census Bureau online population clock), government at all levels and the civil engineering community are working to try and reverse course.
