Electrical utilities have been rejuvenating some of their older solid dielectric cables for several years (Stage, 2006 and Bertini and Chatterton, 1994). The rejuvenation methods involve injecting special fluids under pressure, along the conductor portion of a cable. The fluid normally improves the dielectric strength of the polymer and reduces the(More)
Pyroelectric film materials, including polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) and its copolymers (e.g., P(VDF/TrFe)), are attractive candidates for low-cost infrared detection and imaging applications due to their compatibility with CMOS processing and inexpensive packaging requirements compared to semiconductor-based detectors. The pyroelectric coefficient (p)(More)
Anthropogenic landscape and climatic disturbances translate into in-stream stresses that can be described by changes in the chemical composition of river water or sediment, in-stream or riparian habitat, hydrologic and hydraulic characteristics, and food (energy) sources. The purpose of this research was to develop a regional, layered, hierarchical model(More)
