Long Engineering, Inc. Utilizes Echo Sounding

Long Engineering, Inc. is now utilizing echo sounding technology for our hydrographic surveys. Echo sounding is a type of sonar used to determine the depth of water by transmitting sound pulses into water. The time interval between emission and return of a pulse is recorded, which is then used to determine the depth of water. The horizontal locations of the soundings are determined by connecting our GPS units to the echo sounding equipment. Combining these two technologies has allowed us to provide precise and accurate topography survey of rivers, channels, and lake bottoms that are not achievable with traditional surveying equipment. Long Engineering, Inc. has utilized echo sounding technology for surveys of the Savannah River, Lake Jackson, and the Middle Oconee River.

 

 

Thanks and Farewell to our CEI Summer Interns

Long Engineering, Inc. hosted its summer interns to a farewell outing at Murph’s restaurant located at the Cobb Galleria Centre in Atlanta. Our Construction Engineering & Inspection (CEI) interns had the opportunity to work on the high profile, $834 million dollar Northwest Corridor project. LONG has provided up to 25 inspectors to complete field engineering and inspection services on 39 bridges, 100 retaining walls, and both concrete and asphalt paving. During this project, our interns learned how to inspect steel and erosion control, pour barrier wall, drive pile, perform concrete testing, and learned about super & sub bridge structures. In addition, all of our CEI interns received their field concrete certification as well as their Level 1A erosion control certification. During the outing, our CEI interns had the opportunity to take a picture with the MLB Hall of Fame player himself; Dale Murphy.
