Self accommodating shear strain

The SBE 19plus V2 Sea CAT measures conductivity, temperature, and pressure at 4 scans/sec (4 Hz) and provides high accuracy and resolution, reliability, and ease-of-use for a wide range of research, monitoring, and engineering applications.Pump-controlled, T-C ducted flow minimizes salinity spiking caused by ship heave and allows for slow descent rates without slowing sensor responses, improving dynamic accuracy and resolving small scale structure in the water column.

When an SMA undergoes a martensitic phase transformation, it transforms from its high-symmetry, usually cubic, austenitic phase to a low-symmetry martensitic phase, such as the monoclinic variants of the martensitic phase in a Ni Ti SMA.

The 19plus V2 supports numerous auxiliary sensors (dissolved oxygen, p H, turbidity, fluorescence, oil, PAR, nitrates, altimeter, etc.) with six A/D channels and one RS-232 data channel.

Data is recorded in memory and can also be output in real-time in engineering units or raw HEX.

He is the Executive Director of the Centre for Advancement of Trenchless Technologies (CATT) also at the University of Waterloo, as well as a member of the World Bank Water Expert team. Knight has developed an extensive research program in the area of trenchless pipeline construction and is recognized as an international expert. Knight has been involved in the design and construction of challenging trenchless projects, developed industry leading trenchless design programs, and has been retained as a technical expert in several North America litigation cases.

Prior to commencing his Ph D studies at Queen's University, he worked as a geotechnical engineer for several years. Knight's litigation, academic and consulting experience allows him to provide unique insights on the role of geotechnical engineers in trenchless projects.
