Engineering and Design of Incinerators for Combustible Waste

Credit: 2 PDH
Course Fee: $18.00
19 pages

Course Summary:

This course provides guidance for the design of incinerators for combustible waste materials at U.S. Army mobilization facilities. It is also applicable to all field operating activities having mobilization construction responsibilities wherein the criteria and ‘standards presented here were applied to construction considered crucial to a mobilization effort. These requirements may be altered when necessary to satisfy special conditions on the basis of good engineering practice consistent with the nature of the construction. Design and construction of mobilization facilities must be completed within 180 days from the date notice to precede is given with the projected life expectancy of five years. Hence, rapid construction of a facility should be reflected in its design. Time-consuming methods and procedures, normally preferred over quicker methods for better quality, should be de-emphasized. Lesser grade materials should be substituted for higher grade materials when the lesser grade materials would provide satisfactory service and when use of higher grade materials would extend construction time. Work items not immediately necessary for the adequate functioning of the facility should be deferred until such time as they can be completed without delaying the mobilization effort.
