The forward ends of the drip tubes are anchored and retained to establish relatively fixed intervals of spacing between the forward ends of the adjacent drip tubes to guide the drip tubes across the soil and through growing plants.
Method for the correction of an influence to a distance measurement between two objects
A method, device, system and use for determining a distance, location and/or orientation including the at least relative determination of a position of at least one object using at least two active anchors. A first signal is emitted by a first of the two anchors and is received at the object and by a second of said two anchors.

Floating dual anemometer - mast and doppler
A device of a dual floating anemometer comprised of a mast, support arms for instruments, purlins, a central buoy, connecting beams, the edge floaters, the buoy hoop, the buoy—anchorage connector, anchorage hoop, anchorage, wind measuring instruments a, the connector beam of the anemometer base b, the wind instrument base b wind measuring instruments b, the anchorages of the edge floaters, the connections of the anchorages of the edge floaters with the edge floaters and the connector hoops of the anchorages with the edge floaters, which can be placed in shallow or big water depths and can simultaneously measure the characteristic wind parameters using both common anemometers and doppler anemometers, so that the measurements of the wind potential (velocity, direction, turbulence) are extended to a higher altitude than the altitude of the mast which bears the cup anemometers, because of the combinatorial action.. .
The anchor device includes a post movably connected to a base and is lockable in shovel, anchor and storage positions. First, it is locked in a shovel position and a hole is dug in beach sand.
Method for attaching a joint element in a metal sheet and joint element
The invention relates to a method for anchoring a joint element (1) in a metal sheet (7) so as to be secured against rotation, the hardness of the metal sheet being equal to or greater than the hardness of the material of the joint element. A locking and securing portion (4), which protrudes away from a head (2) of the joint element, is inserted into a joint opening (8), which is provided in the metal sheet and which has a cross section that deviates from the circular shape, such that an edge of the joint opening forms at least one region with a maximum distance to a central axis of the joint opening and at least one region with a minimum radial distance to the central axis of the joint opening, and the head of the joint element rests against the metal sheet after being anchored..
Precast concrete post tensioned segmented wind turbine tower
A post-tensioned precast segmental concrete tower has a stack of annular segments with uniform cross-sections which varies over the tower height. The transition between tower segments occurs in stages and is achieved using annular members or segments which support and anchor post-tensioning tendons that transfer loads passing through the tower as a result of a change in tower geometry.
Self-centering braced frame for seismic resistance in buildings
An elongated tension-only or centering brace for a structural frame is provided where the brace is anchored at a first attachment point and to a second attachment point that is removed from the first attachment point. The elongated tension-only brace has one or more elastic restoring force elements that have effective lengths greater than the length of the tension only brace between the attachment points..
Stanchion safety net support array with anchorage system and using the same
A safety net support system is provided. The system includes a plurality of support members having a material positioned there between to create a barrier between neighboring support members.
