Granite is a common type of felsic intrusive igneous rock that is granular and phaneritic in texture. Granites can be predominantly white, pink, or gray in color, depending on their mineralogy. The word "granite" comes from the Latin granum, a grain, in reference to the coarse-grained structure of such aholocrystalline rock. By definition, granite is an igneous rock with at least 20% quartz and up to 65% alkali feldspar by volume.
A flying buttress is a specific form of buttressing most strongly associated with Gothic church architecture. The purpose of any buttress is to resist the lateral forces pushing a wall outwards (which may arise from stone vaulted ceilings or from wind-loading on roofs) by redirecting them to the ground.

If a metal bar is heated it will expand, but if we prevent it from expanding then large forces will be set up within the bar. The force will be that which would be needed to compress the bar to its original length (L) from the expanded position.

The Advanced Traffic Management System (ATMS) field is a primary subfield within the Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) domain. The ATMS view is a top-down management perspective that integrates technology primarily to improve the flow of vehicle traffic and improve safety. Real-time traffic data from cameras, speed sensors, etc. flows into a Transportation Management Center (TMC) where it is integrated and processed (e.g. for incident detection), and may result in actions taken (e.g. traffic routing, DMS messages) with the goal of improving traffic flow. The National ITS Architecture defines the following primary goals and metrics for ITS:
- Increase transportation system efficiency,
- Enhance mobility,
- Improve safety,
- Reduce fuel consumption and environmental cost,
- Increase economic productivity, and
- Create an environment for an ITS market.
scientist and engineers detected that soil extraction was the key to bring the tilt back to stable conditions. Soil was extracted from two layers of earth: the top layer of sandy soil and the second of marine clay. While soil is being removed, the ground compression surges and clay consolidates, giving a stronger foundation.
The drills extract soil from inside a casing without acting upon other elements or outside of it. The drill cavity closes smoothly when the drill is retracted, then soil settles, forming a cradle that cushions the tower as it shifts slightly to the north.
