Spatial changes in sublittoral soft-bottom polychaete assemblages due to river inputs and sewage discharges.
The radiators and their cooling fans, the charge air intercoolers, etc. This is because the radiator is not a dual circuit system, and you do not have a large enough charge air cooling system. It did at the time it was built however the standards were raised since then and it would no longer meet the new standards, hence no more can be sold here without reworking the design.
Methinks meeting US Tier 1 crashworthiness standards when starting from European UIC standards was much bigger a challenge than going from there to the current ones would be. Regarding emissions, Vossloh already claims on the Euro At any rate, the locos Vossloh did offer to MBTA and one other operator I can't find again would have been under the new regulations.
Not visible is the fact that the cooling systems are now microprocessor controlled, and must maintain engine temperatures within much tighter limits. On the GE GEVO shown notice the large boxy structure ahead of the radiator, this is a air to air intercooler that cools the intake air after it leaves the turbocharger and before it enters the diesel engine. How tough can it be to meet the new emissions standards?
Tough enough to convince Caterpillar to leave the market for building diesel engines for trucks. They couldn't build a diesel engine with acceptable reliability at a cost that was competitive. They had a significant chunk of the market. Tier 3 isn't going to be too bad, but Tier 4 is going to be real trouble. What I meant was that, would Vossloh be incapable to produce the proper extra equipment to fit on the EMD engine new radiators, engine motor cooling, stricter temperature control, exhaust filters , it could go shopping for suppliers.
However, let's at last have a look at European and US emissions standards in comparison. For locomotive diesels above kW, that standard is HC: The near-identity is not by accident from the first link above: However, for switchers, interestingly, the US standard is less strict while the EU one is more strict than for line-haul - must be due to the many downtown freight yards and passenger station service here.
Can you tell me what part of the locomotive machinery impacts the one emission in which the US standard is much stronger, CO? Finally, I found this Vossloh presentation on development to meet new emissions standards unfortunately a technologically shallow 'managerial' one , which confirms something I read earlier in a non-authoritative source: Re-thinking my position EMD would have to be involved with the Vossloh bid anyway.
The big problem is everything keeps getting heavier, bigger radiators, more coolant, I shouldn't have said it wasn't possible.
I wonder what would have happened if EMD lead the consortium in Name for the bid, even if Vossloh did most of the work? The MPI locomotives are roughly tonnes on 4 axles. EMD, GE, or neither? In gasoline automotive engines, three methods of limiting it are: Combustion chamber shaped to promote swirling of the gasses. Lean mixture more air per unit of fuel.
Catalytic converters to convert CO to CO2. I'm not sure that swirl techniques are practical on direct injection engines including diesels , because the burning happens on the surfaces of the fuel droplets before they get a chance to evaporate. Here's an interesting article on the Honda Insight hybrid, where they went "all out" in trying to meet low emission and high economy targets.
There are a LOT of tricks in use This is a tough question since there are so many variables. The EMD diesel will burn roughly Both locomotives offer a gallon fuel tank. GE had been better at quality since about and had been steady building a lead on EMD.
EMD like the rest of GM had gotten arrogant, and poor at customer service. I would frame the following and give it as present to all European decisionmakers Why don't the railroads just build the new tracks, tunnels, switchyards, and other infrastructure they need?
America's major railroad companies are publicly traded companies answerable to often mindless, or predatory, financial Goliaths. I notied the bent shape on that BTW, exceptional with the other three locos in the background photo, but now that you say it, I see even the railings are bent on both sides.
A few new doors and railings are needed at least. The damage was caused by running through a trailer, see comment below. Posted by Mike Vandenberg on July 2, This was the lead unit on a coal train that plowed through an empty semi trailer in Perham, MN last week.
But, for long, there was an engine type that was hoped to replace even diesel: However, unlike that of an airplane, a locomotive's power use varies greatly in time -- and a gas turbine tends to waste fuel when idling. Add to that difficult maintenance, and you see why turbine locomotives were rarely successful, not to speak of being widespread.
Now, the latest attempt for an economic turbine locomotive comes from Russia. Photo from Railway Gazette. The state-developed GT1 has a monstrous power of 8.
One half of the apparent twin locomotive houses the turbine and generator, the other the fuel tank, but all wheelsets 2x6 are driven by electric motors. Is there any company using trigeneration for rail? I'm thinking of refrigerated cars here. All passenger diesels also generate the train heating resp. But heating utilising the diesel motor's heat itself - no. As for why not, I can think of a few reasons: Older trains had steam heating, powered by a boiler on the locomotive; but it was better to switch to supplying electricity.
But in load balancing on power networks that is sufficient. I wish my father was alive to read them One of the few times I ever saw him get excited about anything was when we saw a "rolling drop. I think we could do it better, but it is pretty amazing if you think about it, and compare with other sites.
I got my Lionel electric trains when I was a kid in the 's and still have them. However I've never been willing to spend the money for their version, which keeps going up in price as the years go on. It is after all a toy train system, not a model train offering as the serious fans engage in. In the long run, we're all dead. John Maynard Keynes by Jerome a Paris etg eurotrib.
Diesel heavy haul across Europe 4. Early American diesel-electric locomotives--and current engines--have the "cab body" or "carbody" design, where the locomotive body is the same width as a regular freight or passenger car, and the shell of the body is part of the structure of the engine.
This allows the engineer to access the engine and electrical parts whilst being out of the weather, but it also makes it somewhat more difficult to do major repairs such as engine replacement. The hood design is now almost universal in American freight locomotives, with a distinctly narrow body surrounding the engine and other components and a walkway outside.
However, with the advent of the "safety" cab for the driver, the wide part of the locomotive has gotten longer, and the ever-larger cooling apparatus has produced large "wings" on the latest versions. Then again, I see the two coupled locos on the photo in your comment give the same look, in the end. As apparent main workhorses in the diesel sector, they ordered 45!
Maybe they just want to replace all their old line service diesels, irrespective of size? However, if they are eyeing international traffic, that 2MW MTU engine adopted from the Siemens EuroRunners is both a little weak and a notorious problem child.
The Bombardier F DE have the latest update of it, don't know if it's any better. The BBs being based on the Prima I platform may share the high track forces shown by the electric versions which only have limited access in Germany and Switzerland. I don't know if they applied the change in the international version , but, given that they are in delivery now, I suspect they did.
With some search starting from a recent news , I learnt that the will have 2. Apart from services for big industrial customers with nonelectrified access tracks: In Belgium, part of the Antwerp port railway remains, but not for much longer. The "Iron Rhine" from Antwerp to Germany across the Southern tip of the Netherlands, if and when the Dutch-German section is re-opened, could stay catenary-free for a few years.
I don't know if SNCF also wants to go to the Netherlands, but there, the use of the ready-installed electrification of the harbour access of the Betuweroute is delayed to the end of this year only because of signalling ETCS again With the severe recession, DB is disposing of theirs quickly. DB only disposes of those locos that are due for general inspections since spring this year -- then again, I believe their number now fell under There are some private operators with Ludmillas, I don't know what their plans are.
Too rich for me In most languages, exact is pretty, well, exact. Hard to get better. But in german there's a standard phrase, ganz genau, which might translate to completely exact, for those for whom exact isn't exact enough.
Look at the anti-clmbing plates on their fronts: IMHO rather ugly, but at least less dirty. Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
On a purely aesthetical note: Forgot another diesel engine maker: Some of the models made in Europe are more tuned for what I didn't cover here: In Europe the engine builder certifies the locomotive meets the applicable emissions standards, in the US it is the locomotive builder, this along with a toughening of the crash standards convinced Alstom to not bid for anymore passenger locomotives, not any "Buy American" laws.
Are there any potential buyers who would do without federal matching funds? Some of them might have that as an option Can't you get around the Buy American rules by working in a partnership with an American company? I'm sure that the rules for the main Military Industrial Complex subsidy are different to the rules for funding of applications for federal matching funds for transport projects.
There is much more to diesel engines meeting emissions standards that just the basic engine. But, can meeting these improved standards be considered a problem? Here is a photograph of a SD70 that meets Tier 0 emissions; http: Thanks for the details and the great photo links. Sorry, service club meeting last night finished late.
Nonparametric multivariate techniques were used to classify the 13 localities in regard to different benthic fauna and mainly polychaete families, as well as environmental factors. All multivariate analyses were performed using the comunidades bentónicas son de suma importancia para la supervivencia de los ecosistemas marinos y, para un manejo adecuado, se necesita entender como funcionan Hutchings En este contexto, el estudio de la composición y distribución de los grupos bentónicos es de gran interés ya que se consideran un elemento clave de los ecosistemas marinos Gray y Mirza Aunque la macrofauna asociada al fondo presenta muchas ventajas como indicadores, las agrupaciones bentónicas son muy complejas.
Por lo tanto, pueden ser buenos indicadores de la riqueza de especies y de los patrones de la comunidad de invertebrados bentónicos Fauchald y Jumars Varios autores consideran que los poliquetos son el grupo taxonómico que muestra mayor sensibilidad a las alteraciones de los sustratos blandos Bellan , del-Pilar-Ruso et al. Los cambios espaciales y temporales en la estructura de la comunidad bentónica se relacionan con factores ambientales y es necesario determinar como suceden estos cambios naturales para poder entender e interpretar los posibles cambios asociados con los impactos antropogénicos.
Los sitios de estudio se seleccionaron tratando de evitar los posibles factores que pudieran afectar las agrupaciones, tal como la contaminación aguas residuales, plantas de desalinización, etc. La infauna bentónica de fondos blandos se recolectó en 13 localidades y en cada localidad se muestrearon dos sitios.
En total se estudiaron 26 estaciones entre los 9 y 31 m de profundidad durante los veranos de a En cada sitio se tomaron cuatro réplicas con una draga tipo Van Veen cm2. Tres muestras se tamizaron a través de una malla de 0. Se emplearon técnicas multivariantes no paramétricas para clasificar las 13 localidades en cuanto a la fauna bentónica y principalmente las familias de poliquetos, así como los factores ambientales. Se calcularon matrices de similitud triangulares usando el coeficiente de similitud de Bray-Curtis para los datos de fauna y la distancia euclidiana para las variables ambientales Clarke y Warwick Se determinaron correlaciones de Spearman entre los datos y los factores abióticos tamaño de grano del sedimento y profundidad con el procedimiento RELATE Clarke Location of the 13 localities sampled along the Valencian Community coast eastern Spain.
Localización de las 13 localidades estudiadas en la costa de la Comunidad Valenciana levante español. A classification of the localities was performed from the similarity matrix of polychaetes by cluster analysis. Triangular similarity matrices were calculated using the Bray-Curtis similarity coefficient for the fauna data and Euclidean distance for environmental variables Clarke and Warwick Graphical representation of multivariate patterns of the polychaete assemblage was obtained by nonmetric multidimensional scaling nMDS.
Spearman correlations between data and abiotic factors sediment grain size and depth were determined using the RELATE procedure Clarke El porcentaje de cada tamaño de grano varió entre localidades tabla 1. Se muestrearon un total de 43, especímenes, divididos en 23 grupos taxonómicos diferentes.
Los poliquetos dominaron la comunidad infaunal, seguidos por los taxones Amphipoda, Tanaidacea y Bivalvia. Se registraron un total de 14, individuos de poliquetos y se agruparon en 45 familias.
Se observó, mediante la rutina 2STAGE, que el patrón detectado en , en donde cada localidad se incluye en uno de los cuatro grupos, fue consistente en el tiempo fig. Por lo tanto, para caracterizar a cada grupo, se construyó una matriz de datos nueva que Ciencias Marinas, Vol.
The percentage of each grain size varied between localities table 1. A total of 43, specimens, divided into 23 different taxonomic groups, were sampled. Polychaeta dominated the infaunal community, followed by Amphipoda, Tanaidacea, and Bivalvia. A total of 14, polychaete individuals were recorded and grouped into 45 families. The most abundant polychaete family was Nephtyidae Las familias que caracterizan a cada uno de los cuatro grupos se describen en la tabla 1.
El grupo A incluyó la mayoría de las localidades con un nivel de similitud de El grupo con cuatro sitios dentro de dos localidades grupo B, similitud de Summary of the biotic and sedimentary characteristics of each group. The dominant trophic categories in each group are included. Resumen de las características bióticas y sedimentarias de cada grupo. Se incluyen las categorías tróficas dominantes en cada grupo. Polychaete distribution pattern followed by Paraonidae By means of the 2STAGE routine we observed that the pattern detected in , where each locality is included in one of the four groups, was consistent over time fig.
The families that characterized each one of the four groups are described in table 1. Group A included the majority of the localities with a similarity level of The group with four sites within two localities group B, similarity of Group C similarity of Group D similarity of The families responsible for the dissimilarities between groups are represented in table 2.
After analyzing each factor, a positive correlation was observed between the polychaete assemblages and the following factors: We detected that the study area is also classified into four major benthic habitats defined by the sediments found in it and the depth table 1.
El grupo C similitud de El grupo D similitud de En la tabla 2 se presentan las familias responsables de las disimilitudes entre grupos. Al analizar cada factor, se observó una correlación positiva entre las agrupaciones de poliquetos y los siguientes factores: Por consiguiente, la segregación de la agrupación de poliquetos en estos cuatro gupos puede estar relacionada con factores abióticos.
Cluster of the polychaete assemblages for the sampling period data based on Bray-Curtis similarities from square-root transformed abundance data. Dendrograma de los grupos de poliquetos para los datos del periodo de muestreo de con base en las similitudes de Bray-Curtis a partir de datos de abundancia transformados por raíz cuadrada.
Multidimensional scaling MDS plots of polychaete families at all stations for a , b , and c Results of the second stage correlation are shown in the table. Los resultados de la correlación de la segunda etapa se muestran en la tabla. En el presente estudio se observó que la distribución de las agrupaciones de poliquetos en la costa del levante español se relaciona tanto con el tipo de sedimento como con la profundidad, al igual que lo encontrado por Labrune et al. La relación entre los factores abióticos y las comunidades bentónicas es compleja: In this study we observed that polychaete assemblage distribution along the east coast of Spain is related to both sediment type and depth, as also observed by Labrune et al.
The relationship between abiotic factors and benthic communities is complex, Del-Pilar-Ruso et al.: Percentage of trophic categories for each group A, B, C, and D established. Porcentaje de las categorías tróficas para cada grupo A, B, C y D establecido. Therefore, these parameters could explain the segregation of the polychaete assemblages into four different groups. Moreover, in spite of the natural interannual variability that would be expected, we detected a pattern that is consistent through space and time.
The study area comprised four kinds of habitats determined by sediments and depth, which characterized the polychaete assemblages. This fact has also been pointed out by Moreira et al. Finer sediments are known to be colonized by deposit feeders Pearson and Rosenberg ; however, it is likely that we detected an impoverished version of this habitat in shallow waters 9 m , characterized by the lowest values of abundance, richness, and biodiversity.
This shallow sandy bottom group C was characterized by the presence of some polychaete families similar to those that have been found in deeper sandy bottoms. The trophic group of filter feeders was more abundant in shallow sandy bottoms mainly due to the low presence of the mud fraction table 1. On the other hand, two localities are considered as gravelly sand or sandy gravel bottoms. This habitat showed the highest values of abundance, richness, and biodiversity, factores que mostraron la mayor correlación con las comunidades bentónicas.
Por otro lado, dos localidades presentan un fondo de arena guijarrosa o grava arenosa. Por lo tanto, parece ser que Ciencias Marinas, Vol. Coarse sediments are known to provide a wide range of interstitial spaces that constitute a suitable habitat for families such as Syllidae and Hesionidae Moreira et al. The space between grains makes the search and capture of potential preys easier for carnivorous and omnivorous species Parson et al.
In this case, we did not find any strong relation between the infralittoral habitat detected in our study area and the habitats described by EUNIS or the Barcelona Convention. Therefore, these habitats may still be lacking an in-depth description appropriate for the Mediterranean Sea.
Only the deepest locality was classified as muddy-sandy bottom with some gravel.
