    Abstract: The published literature on porous media is filled with erroneous and contradicting assertions relating to measurements of permeability. In this paper, we present a new and novel approach to remedy this situation, by demonstrating a standard methodology using a new fluid flow model. This model is different from any model currently in use and provid... Show More

    Abstract: The performance of span-wire mounted traffic signal systems can be significantly affected by extreme wind events. Multiple mechanical failure cases of this type of traffic signal systems occurred in Florida in the past hurricane seasons, resulting in unsafe traffic conditions. For better analysis the force on structure, this paper presents the resu... Show More
