Earth Grounding Beds - Design and Evaluation. Proceedings: Bureau of Mines Technology Transfer Seminars, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, June 25, 1985, and Reno, Nevada, June 27, 1985.
MISSING :24 pages
Recent Bureau of Mines research in earth grounding safety is documented in three separate papers. First, guidelines for the design of a 5-ohm borehole ground are presented. Next, an inexpensive practical means to construct a low-resistance bed in high-resistivity soil is described. Finally, a procedure that employs a commercial resistivity meter to measure shock potentials around grounded objects is explained step-by-step. These papers complement the material presented at an earlier technology transfer seminar and published as ic 8767.
