Outfalls need to have periodic inspections performed to ensure that they are in good working condition, including all diffuser ports and the interior of the out fall.  Poor flow though diffuser ports could indicate that there is accumulated material inside of the outfall pipeline that may need to be removed. Neglect of outfalls can lead to costly repairs in the long run, for example, separated joints, end cap failure, material build up and buried diffuser ports.

Underwater Burning and Welding are two practices that utilize much of the same gear but are very different practices.  Both underwater welding and burning utilize a DC current welding machine and welding leads to carry the current to the work site.  Welding projects can vary greatly in scope, from simply attaching anodes to barges or pilings to structural welding of steel members in powerhouses and on bridges and platforms.  Read more
Trash RacksTrash Racks
Trash racks are encountered whenever there is a need to keep material out of an area.  Normally they are in place around the intake pipeline which have slide gates to control the flow to the pipe.  Trash racks can become clogged with debris and damaged if larger debris is encountered.  Trash racks vary greatly between structures and applications, from stainless steel grating in the ocean to RFP structures on smaller lakes.

Although the U.S. takes drastic measures against plagiarism on dissertation papers, the situation isn’t too bright. The Josephson Institute Centre for Youth Ethics has investigated the problem of plagiarism on 24,000 students and revealed that 64% of them have cheated on a test, 58% have plagiarized and 95% admitted that they have cheated in one way or another.A different study that targeted 63,700 students that were about to graduate college between 2002 and 2005 has shown that 36% of students have copied phrases from the Internet, without inserting them as references in the footnotes. 14% of them have given false bibliography references, and 7% have copied entire papers.

Although many students may think that a single copied sentence isn’t plagiarism, the reality is that not even idea theft is allowed. Here are the primary plagiarism methods and the ways to avoid them.

  1. Copying Without Rephrasing

This is a frequent form of plagiarism, in which students copy one or multiple phrases, from a source. If you’d like to use a passage or sentence from an author, use citation marks and insert it in the footnotes.

Professors usually can tell when a student has used original sources. First of all, the style of writing differs and second, they’re familiar with all the go-to sources of their field.

Tip: To avoid plagiarism, use only the main idea of the sentence and rephrase the rest.

  1. Inserting Multiple Footnotes

Copying a sentence or a phrase from various sources requires you to use references, but when each sentence is accompanied by a footnote, this means that your entire text is copied, and not created by yourself.

Although footnotes are necessary and can add value to your paper, they can’t make your whole dissertation.

Tip: You can use references, but writing your paper entirely out of them is not the way to go.

  1. Rephrasing Sentences

When you rephrase something, you’re basically keeping the main idea, but formulate it in your own words. Although many students do it, this is still a method of cheating, only that it’s harder to detect.

Keep in mind that idea theft is, in fact, a sort of crime. So, it’s best to avoid using someone else’s ideas, in case you don’t want to risk failing a course.

Tip: The right way to do it is to rephrase the sentence, but also mention the source in the footnotes.

  1. Copying the Structure

This is also a form of plagiarism. Unfortunately, many students use it, without even knowing that it’s not allowed. At the same time, this is due because many papers tend to follow the same structure and present generic information in the introduction.

It’s easy to connect related papers, but if you haven’t copied parts of that paper, then you can’t be hold responsible for the structure.

Tip: To avoid doing this, make sure that your concepts and ideas are presented in an original manner.

  1. Not Giving Credit

As long as you’ve worked with a dissertation writing service, keep in mind that you’re also going to include his name in the research. Any type of academic work that has been shared must provide the name of all researchers involved in the process.

Keeping the credit just for yourself won’t be regarded with kind eyes and can even get you expelled.

Tip: Mention on each research paper you create the name of all the people that have helped you accomplish it.

Academic papers must have moral and ethical qualities. This means that they have to be concise, clear and have relevant arguments. Also, above all, they must be plagiarism-free.
