During that year we have done a lot of renovating, repairing, and updating. Initially, we were thinking about getting a new front door but decided its not a priority with all of the other to-do items on our list. The one thing about our front door that we dislike is the huge, clear window. We live on a main road in town with lots of vehicle and foot traffic and we prefer that the entire city not see directly into our home at any given time. As a temporary fix, for the last several months the window was covered with a DIY Roman Shade. This method worked great, but it blocked out too much light for my liking, making our entryway very dim and dark.Last week we decided to update the door so that we could allow light in while blocking the outside view in. Enter Rust-Oleum Frosted Glass. I have used this product before on bathroom windows and I love it. Its cheap, its easy, and if you mess up, you can scrape it off and start over. Being removable is also handy when you have ever changing decor ideas.

So this was what our front door looked like before this project. See how it just gives a great view inside our home? Not cool!How to Get this Frosted Window LookThe first thing you need to do is use rubbing alcohol to very, very thoroughly clean the window. You dont want any dirt, grime, or dust on the window, otherwise, the frost will not adhere properly.

Next, use a tape measure and a dry-erase marker to mark your measurements for the outside border lines. These lines were created with 1 painters tape. After your painters tape is in place, use a credit card or other flat object to squeegee out any bubbles or air pockets. This also ensures that the tape is stuck down really well on the edges so the frosting doesnt leak under the tape during application.For the house numbers, I used my Cricut Maker to cut the numbers out of clear contact paper. (I used the standard blade and the vinyl setting on my machine. Dont forget to reverse your image before cutting). If you do not have a cutting machine, you can use a stencil or free-hand your numbers and cut them out with scissors. Again use the dry-erase marker to mark out the measurements of where to place the numbers. Then place the contact paper numbers on the door and squeegee out air bubbles. I recommend going back with a rag and rubbing alcohol to wipe down the glass around your tape and contact paper to remove any fingerprints and dry-erase marker marks on the door before frosting.Next, open some windows and turn on a bathroom fan vent because this stuff gets stinky! Luckily the smell doesnt hang around too long but do be sure to ventilate well.

Spray a layer of the frost on the door in even movements while holding the spray can about 1012 inches away from the door. Wait about 10 minutes and spray on a second coat. After another 10 minutes, spray on the third and final coat. While the spray is wet it will look splotchy and shiny, but as it dries it will take on the frosted look.Immediately remove your tape and contact paper after your last coat to prevent the tape from pulling up the frosting.Step back and admire your new window! Now you have nice, filtered, natural light coming in but the world outside cant see in! You can make any window designs that you want using tape, contact paper, or vinyl.

Problems of Phased Array Ground Penetrating Radar Detection System
Although GPR has been widely used in hydrology, engineering, environment and other fields, many basic theoretical and technical problems have not been fundamentally solved, so the real advantages of GPR have not been brought into full play.The main problems existing in GPR technology include:1) The detection depth is shallow, and the contradiction between detection depth and resolution cannot be overcome. Increasing detection depth means sacrificing detection resolution;2) Multiple spread and other clutter jamming are serious, and there has been no good elimination method, which exists in radars at home and abroad;3) The influence of medium unevenness is great and can not be eliminated, resulting in difficulty in obtaining necessary velocity data;4) The data collection method of single sending and single receiving can provide limited information for post-processing and interpretation.The above problems are fatal defects for GPR. Although many geophysicists, electromagnetic experts and geophysical workers have done a lot of research and improvement on radar antenna design, signal processing and underground target imaging, these works are only partial modifications to the existing GPR system. In order to develop GPR technology, we must update our ideas and solve the problems from the fundamental principle.In view of this situation, experts proposed to develop a new GPR system - phased array GPR detection system in 1999.The basic research idea is to replace the current monopole radar antenna with the phased array radar antenna by using the relatively mature military phased array radar technology. Its purpose is to gather the electromagnetic wave into a narrow beam to transmit underground (or detection object) through the phased array technology, and receive the radar echo signal reflected by the target by using the multi-channel acquisition technology, The advanced data processing is carried out, and finally the three-dimensional image of the internal structure of the detection object is given.Development prospect of ground penetrating radar technologyIt is worth noting that at present, similar products have appeared in the market, such as RIS antenna array series of a company, but these products simply combine multiple monopole antennas into array antennas, which is essentially different from the idea of phased array ground penetrating radar.Because the phased array radar converges the electromagnetic wave into a narrow beam by controlling the phase delay of each channel, the energy is concentrated and the wave front diffusion is small. Therefore, the detection depth of the phased array radar is much larger under the condition of the same frequency and transmission power; On the contrary, under the same detection depth, phased array radar can improve the transmission power, so its resolution is much higher than the existing radar. In addition, since the spherical wave transmission is changed to beam transmission, the influence of medium heterogeneity is much smaller.Secondly, the phased array radar works in a continuous scanning mode and can scan in multiple directions. Therefore, the amount of information is much larger than that of the existing ground penetrating radar. For some special detection work, such as the quality detection of embankment cut-off wall, its role is unmatched by the existing ground penetrating radar (monopole antenna radar can not detect the joints, forks and other defects of embankment cut-off wall at all).Because phased array radar is a multi-channel received signal, multi-channel superposition can be carried out, just like the multiple coverage technology of reflection seismic exploration. Therefore, multiple interference can be greatly eliminated, which is difficult for existing radars. The antenna of high frequency (600mhz-1ghz) phased array ground penetrating radar can be made smaller, and its advantages are unmatched by the existing ground penetrating radar in shallow detection.At present, the system prototype has been completed. The carrier free pulse working system with center frequency of 900MHz is adopted, and the transmitting and receiving antennas are separated. 16 (4 × 4) Transmit channel forming, beam aggregation and scanning 16 (4) × 4) The channel receives the echo, and the optional scanning angles are - 36 °, - 24 °, - 12 °, 0 °, 12 °, 24 ° and 36 °.The software part of the system has rich data processing functions. The main conventional processing includes filtering, gain adjustment, static and dynamic correction, deconvolution, complex signal analysis, time-frequency analysis, etc., and multi-channel data processing, such as velocity analysis, superposition technology, coherence analysis technology, array signal processing, etc. And weak signal extraction, target automatic recognition and inversion interpretation under various clutter interference. A large number of field experiments on concrete detection in Yichang Three Gorges dam are carried out. The experimental results show that the spotlight scanning function of phased array radar has been realized, the penetration depth is greater than 1.5m and the resolution is higher than that of ordinary radar.Editing: hfy
