Re: Road resurfacing

Not cooked alive though Wink
Even so, ohms law still applies - A quick google look suggests that the resistance average human body is around 10k ohms when dry, 1000 ohms when wet and 500 ohms if the skin breaks down during electrocution.
The body will therefore draw around 200mA at most for a 100V shock (and in reality a lot less than this as the skin won't break down at this voltage) - 30A would imply a shock of 15kV!!!
Back to road surfacing Smiley

Re: Road resurfacing

Back to road surfacing; one of our local roads was planed and resurfaced by a German contractor, using British guys. They laid one layer of tarmac, then what I thought to be a mesh layer (5cm Squares) of Carbon Fibre cord to carpet the surface. On top od that was a thick final layer of tarmac. Intrigued, I asked the local council what was the fibre. It was basalt fibre, made like glass fibre but from molten basalt rock. The mesh is about three times stronger than steel.
Now Zen, but a +Net residue.

I'm lost..

That`s because the road has been resurfaced... and the markings have not yet been re-done..... so, inevitably,... one does get lost.... and go off topic  Cheesy Cheesy
