Part of a long-term goal of developing a sustainable composite panel that meets both structural and energy performance requirements in building construction applications, this study discusses the development of a thinwalled wood-strand 3D core element that shows promise for a variety of panelized construction applications, such as in a building envelope. Sandwich panels take advantage of the lightweight corrugated core sandwiched between stress skin faces acting similar to an I-beam. Specific bending stiffness of sandwich panels fabricated with ponderosa pine strands was significantly higher than average values of commercially produced composite panels of equivalent thickness (141-156% and 120-133% stiffer than oriented strand board (OSB) and 5-ply plywood respectively). Compared to OSB of equivalent thickness, sandwich panels require 40% less wood strands by weight, which also means lower usage of resin. This basic concept creates tremendous flexibility in designing panelized wall, floor and roof elements for building envelope applications. © 2015 Scrivener Publishing LLC.

The new Fox River Bridge won the coveted Eminent Conceptor Award in the Engineering Excellence Awards competition sponsored by the American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC) of Illinois. The annual competition recognizes engineering projects that demonstrate an exceptional degree of innovation, complexity, achievement, and value. Located on the Jane Addams Memorial Tollway (I-90) in Elgin, Illinois, the bridge replacement project is one of eight Illinois projects to receive a top level Honor Award and be considered for the organization’s highest award. The announcement that the Fox River Bridge won the premier award was made to a sold-out crowd at the ACEC Illinois’ annual Awards Luncheon in mid-February. The $95 million bridge replacement project is one of the Illinois Tollway’s largest single contract awards in the $2.5 billion Jane Addams Memorial Tollway (I-90) Rebuilding and Widening Project between Rockford and O’Hare International Airport. The project was designed by Stanley Consultants, a global consulting engineering firm, with construction management provided by Chastain/Thomas JV and construction by Kenny/Kraemer JV. Two unusual design and construction methods were used to remove the aging six-lane twin bridge and build a new eight-lane twin bridge in the same location, while simultaneously keeping six lanes of traffic open. The substructure of the new bridge – footings and piers – was constructed underneath the existing bridge while it remained in service. This innovative bridge-under-bridge design was possible because the beams used in the new bridge deck are much longer and deeper than the previous beams. A gantry system was used to place the massive 200,000-pound deck beams, alleviating the need to position a large crane close to the rare forested fen located adjacent to the bridge. “The I-90 Fox River Bridge demonstrates how using an innovative bridge design and construction methods allowed us to complete a crucial project while still offering the same level of access to our customers,” said Illinois Tollway Executive Director Greg Bedalov. “The new bridge provides significant benefits to local communities by protecting the river and nearby environmentally sensitive areas from stormwater runoff and other traffic impacts, which is part of the Tollway’s emphasis on green design and construction. We are honored that this work by our staff and the firms that partnered with us is being recognized with this prestigious award.” Using longer, deeper beams reduced the number of piers and expansion joints in the bridge, which lowers future maintenance costs and increases its lifespan. Combined with the use of stainless steel deck reinforcement, the new bridge is expected to have a service life of between 75 to 100 years. The Illinois Tollway is a user-fee system that receives no state or federal funds for maintenance and operations. The agency maintains and operates 292 miles of interstate tollways in 12 counties in Northern Illinois, including the Reagan Memorial Tollway (I-88), the Veterans Memorial Tollway (I-355), the Jane Addams Memorial Tollway (I-90), the Tri-State Tollway (I-94/I-294/I-80) and the Illinois Route 390 Tollway.

Several methods that are used by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and state agencies to ensure good air quality are presented. One method is to establish National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) for specific pollutants and another is to set limits for specific air pollutants emitted by a facility through emission performance standards or permit conditions. NAAQS have two components that include the level and the form. The form of the standard defines the time period over which the standard is evaluated. The shorter time periods can have the effect of increasing the stringency of a standard by reducing the ability to average conditions over longer time periods. The EPA is replacing the current 24-hour and annual standards with a new short-term standard based on the 3-year average of the 99th percentile of the yearly distribution of 1-hour daily maximum SO 2 concentrations. The EPA is setting the level of the new standard at 75 ppb.
