Environmental Quality - Environmental Statistics, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers

This manual provides an overview of statistical methods that are applicable to the various life cycles of a typical environmental project. The manual explains basic statistical concepts and their application to environmental projects. The manual may be used as a desk-top reference, as it provides step-by-step instructions for conducting a variety of useful and common statistical tests for environmental data. This manual is not intended to replace statistical texts or electronic statistical software. It does not present derivations of statistical formulas or a comprehensive treatment of statistical concepts, but focuses on the application of select statistical methods.


Landfill Gas Collection and Treatment Systems, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers

This Engineering Manual (EM) provides information about the design of systems to monitor, collect, transport, and treat gas from municipal, industrial and hazardous waste landfills. The EM describes various landfill gas (LFG) emission control techniques and presents design procedures relative to each. The following topics are discussed in this EM: a. Reasons for LFG control; b. Theory of LFG emissions; c. LFG and condensate characteristics; d. Estimation of LFG production; e. LFG collection and treatment design considerations; f. Operation and maintenance (O&M) requirements; and g. Regulatory requirements.


Engineering and Design: Mechanical and Electrical Design for Lock and Dam Operating Equipment, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers

This manual provides guidance in the mechanical and electrical design of navigation lock and dam operating equipment and control systems for both new construction and the rehabilitation of existing projects.


Engineer Manual: Radiation Protection, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers

This manual prescribes the requirements of the Radiation Protection Program of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) contained in Engineer Regulation 385-1-80, Ionizing Radiation Protection. It is to be used when activities utilize or handle radioactive material (which includes radioactive waste) or a radiation generative device.


Environmental Quality, In-Situ Air Sparging, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers

The primary purpose of this Engineer Manual is to provide guidance for evaluation of the feasibility of in-situ air sparging (IAS) for remediation of contaminated groundwater and soil. A secondary purpose is to design and operational considerations for IAS systems. The foundation of Corps of Engineers environmental work is the Environmental Operating Principles as specified in ER-200-1-5. These seven tenets serve as guides and must be applied in all Corps business lines as we strive to achieve a sustainable environment.


Environmental Quality, Design: In-Situ Thermal Remediation, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers

This Engineer Manual provides guidance and background for the appropriate screening and selection of in situ thermal remediation (ISTR) technologies, including steam enhanced extraction injection, electrical resistivity heating, and thermal conductive heating. This document is intended to help distinguish proper applications of the technology and identify important design, operational, and monitoring issues relevant to Government oversight personnel. It is intended for use by engineers, geologists, hydrogeologists, soil scientists, chemists, project managers, and others who possess a technical education but only the broadest familiarity with ISTR technologies.


Safety and Health Requirements 2014, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers

This manual prescribes the safety and health requirements for all Corps of Engineers activities and operations. It applies to Headquarters, US Army Corps of Engineers (HQUSACE) elements, major subordinate commands, districts, centers, laboratories, and field operating activities (FOA), as well as USACE contracts and those administered on behalf of USACE. Applicability extends to occupational exposure for missions under the command of the Chief of Engineers, whether accomplished by military, civilian, or contractor personnel.


Engineering and Design: Inland Electronic Navigational Chart Engineering Manual, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers

This manual provides technical and administrative guidance for development, production, publication, and maintenance of lnland Electronic Navigational Charts (IENCs). It applies to all USACE commands having responsibility for civil works navigation, dredging, flood risk management, multi-purpose water supply/control, coastal storm damage reduction, hurricane protection, and hydropower projects.


Engineering and Design: Dredging and Dredged Material Management, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers

This Engineer Manual (EM) presents a comprehensive summary of the dredging equipment and dredged material placement techniques used by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), and it describes management and design processes associated with newwork and maintenance dredging related to navigation projects. Guidance is provided on a. Evaluation and selection of dredging equipment for various materials to be dredged. b. Planning, designing, constructing, operating, and managing environmentally acceptable open-water and confined dredged material placement areas for both short- and long-term placement (disposal) needs. c. Planning, designing, developing, and managing dredged material for beneficial uses while...


Human Behaviors, Don Enslow

For a moment, let’s try to evaluate human behavior while driving a motor vehicle. Is it even possible to capture the multitude of behaviors, attitudes, stresses, tensions and mental pre-occupation present in an individual prior to turning on the ignition? How does one even attempt to design the controls and informational displays to enhance the capabilities and operability of the vehicle to enhance safety? How much does that cost? Is it worth it? Doesn’t the operator have a responsibility for assuring safe driving practices?


What is the BOK?

The Body of Knowledge project is dedicated to creating a living reference that represents the collective knowledge of the Safety, Health and Environmental profession. While the preliminary work has begun, there is still more to do. The purpose of this website is to introduce subject areas that will eventually be part of the Body of Knowledge, and to gather feedback on the future direction, and ongoing assessment of what needs to be completed.
