Example text

It might, though, be a simple and reasonable tool for short-term extrapolation (one year). Only two years have passed since the B1 and B3 Wings were first surveyed, and only a single year of data is available for the remaining columns (Wings A4 and B4). This is inadequate for non-linear curve fitting, so only a straight-line fit could be determined for these data sets. Unlike the polynomial used for the A1, A2, A3, and B2 Wings, however, this will likely yield a conservative (too large) prediction of future settlement.

Because construction occurs over time, components of the foundation experience different load rates and varying loads. Addition of access ramps, which were not part of the original design, introduced very large loads onto the original pad. Survey measurements of the columns support the argument that a majority of the initial differential settlement concerns were associated with the snow ramps used during construction. The ramps applied a surcharge to the compacted pad nearly 100 times greater than the design value used for the self-weight of the Elevated Station applied through the timber footers.

In response to these challenges, a project was initiated to develop a new, highly-efficient instrument platform utilizing practical technology to heat and power the units with renewable energy. A prototype Autonomous Real-time Remote Observatory (ARRO) that must operate autonomously (without generating power) for 11-days was designed for installation on the Antarctic Plateau where temperatures range from -80 °C in the winter to -5 °C in the summer. Upon installation, it will support the housing and data acquisition of multiple independent scientific instruments that will share approximately 100 Watts of dedicated power.
