  Clinker (boat building) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Clinker is a boat building technique used for constructing hulls of boats and ships by fixing wooden planks and in the early nineteenth century, iron plates to each other so that the planks overlap along their edges.
The Clinker form of construction is linked in people's minds, with the Vikings who used this method to build their famous longships from riven timber (split wood) planks.
Clinker is the British term, it is known as lapstrake in North America.

 North Dakota's Clinker
Clinker beds typically range from a few feet to 50 feet or so thick in western North Dakota, but much thicker beds are found in Wyoming and Montana.
Clinker resists erosion because it is harder than nearby unbaked rocks and also because heating and subsidence during burning produce fractures that allow water to infiltrate, minimizing surface runoff.
After the clinker cools, the spaces that resulted from collapsing of the materials are convenient places in which rattlesnakes and other animals can live.

 The High Plains   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
The reddish siltstone rock that caps many ridges and buttes in the Powder River Basin is called "clinker" or "scoria." Clinker is rock that has been fused by the natural burning of underlying coal beds.
Clinker forms a distinct part of the ecosystem in the basin.
Because soils formed from clinker are very permeable, they absorb rain and melting snow like a sponge and protect it from evaporation.

But John Morand, chair of the Toronto Port Authority, says the clinker brought into the harbour by ship and deposited by a clamshell-type crane onto piles (where water is sprayed to maintain a hard-crust surface) is "perfectly safe." He says the operation meets all federal and provincial environmental requirements.
Such is not the case at Toronto harbour, where the process of loading the clinker onto the dock, its storage into piles and subsequent removal onto trucks is all done in the open.
Since clinker is a product, not a waste, she adds, "there are no regulations in how [it] is used or managed" on Port Authority docks.

The areas of clinker were transferred from original maps (folded paper copies) to a base stable medium (mylar) and registered using bounding control points in geographic (latitude and longitude) coordinates.
Individual clinker polygon coverages from the different map sources and from different areas were then joined to form a single, composite polygon coverage for the clinker.

Examining a single sample of clinker in isolation will indicate the general features of that clinker but usually it is more useful to have at least two samples.
In the simplest case, if clinker or cement characteristics have changed from normal, a sample of typical clinker to compare with the atypical clinker should highlight the differences.
If a series of clinkers is examined over time, a picture will emerge of what is 'normal' for that works' clinker, providing a context for subsequent examination of single samples.

The Expedition of Humphry Clinker was the last of the picaresque novels of Tobias Smollett, first published in 1771, and is considered by many to be Smollett's best and funniest work.
It is presented in the form of letters written by five different characters.
The title character, Humphry Clinker, is an ostler who does not make his first appearance until about a quarter of the way through the story, when he is taken on by Matthew Bramble, a Welshman, and his family who are travelling through England.

 Amazon.ca: Books: The Expedition of Humphry Clinker   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
An epistolary novel, "Humphry Clinker" is no stranger in format to the eighteenth century - however, odd to me was the fact that none of the writers - Squire Bramble, his sister Tabitha, their nephew and niece Jery and Lydia Melford, and Tabitha's waiting woman Winifred - ever receives a response.
The letters of the Bramble expedition encompass a wide range of topics, along a range of experience and sentiment, of interaction, which itself is a veritable buffet of later eighteenth century customs, coffeehouse culture, civil engineering, agriculture, speech, fashion, science, moral philosophy, art, and manners spanning Wales, England, and Scotland, both in countryside and cityscape.
Their various perspectives on two of the novel's minor characters, the eponymous Humphry Clinker and the combative disputant Scot Obadiah Lismahago (the most cosmopolitan figure among the recurring characters), confer substance, interest, and warmth upon characters who do not themselves write letters.

 A Co-generation Process For Clinker and Electricity in Portland Cement Plants
In a dry process cement clinker production line, the heat of the exhaust gases from the clinker burning system has to be used efficiently by heat-exchange with the raw materials led to avoid heat loss.
It was recently reported that 39KWH electricity per metric ton of clinker could be generated by a waste heat recovery power plant, which can supply about one third of the total power requirement of the plant, and the pay-back period(PBP) of the power plant was only 3 years.
Chart 1A is a comparison of the specific capital investment on the whole plant calculated on annual clinker capacity between the new co-generation process and a conventional modern dry cement process with a waste heat recovery electric power station.
