Corrugated web steel girders-A state of the art review
  • Abstract
  • Keywords
  • Reference
  • Full Article
Plate girders are widely used in bridges as well as industrial buildings. As we know, plate girders have maximum moment carrying capacity than any other hot rolled sections used. To carry these moments economically, normally webs with larger depth to thickness ratio are used resulting in slender sections which are susceptible to web buckling. Hence to avoid web buckling and to gain maximum strength, corrugations are provided in the web region. The corrugated steel plate can be used in many fields of applications because of its favorable properties. This new achievement has helped engineers to design more optimal structures. In this paper, a review of the research carried out on corrugated web steel girders both experimentally and analytically is presented.

Using Supplementary Cement Materials To Reduce CO2Emissions From Cement Manufacturing
  • Abstract
  • Keywords
  • Reference
  • Full Article
The cement industry is a significant CO2 emitter, contributing approximately 5% of all global CO2 emissions. These emissions primarily result from the fuel combustion and calcination of raw materials. However, it is possible that using fly ash and silica fume—recycled byproducts from other industries—in the concrete mix will help the environment. In this study, effects of adding fly ash and silica fume on the compressive strength of concrete containing supplementary cement materials (SCM) were experimentally investigated. By using SCM, we will be able to obtain high-performance concrete (HPC) which lead to reduce the cross-section area of the concrete structure and that will reduce the amount of cement which means reduce the amount of CO2 emission from cement manufacturing to the atmosphere. By comparing traditional concrete mix with our new concrete mix containing SCM, we were able to see the difference between the amount of cement produced by each. We prepared and tested 12 mixes of concrete with different compressive strengths, which had varying effects on reducing cement amount and CO2 emission.

Thin films of TiO2 and TiO2-Zeolite were deposited with different concentrations on glass substrates using the spin-coating technique. X-ray diffraction (XRD), UV-vis, Raman spectroscopy and scanning electron microscopy (SEM) characterizations were used in order to determine the influence of this variation on the structural, optical and morphological properties of the films. As a result, it was found that the films are polycrystals, an exhibit high transmittance in the visible and near infrared regions. Furthermore, the narrow optical bands are in the range of 4.03 eV-4.46eV, and the morphology of the samples shows conglomerates with sizes less than 10 μm.

  • Full Article
Rain water harvesting is an important source of water supply for places that experience low rainfall. This study focuses on the quality of rain water harvested from corrugated zinc roof and stored in ferrocement reservoirs fromresidential locations in Ovia North-East Local Government of Edo State. Standard laboratory procedures were used to determine the microbiological and physicochemical parameters of the rain water collected from ferro-cement reservoirs. These parameters were compared with the recommended limits prescribed by the Nigerian Standard for Drinking Water Quality (NSDWQ) and World Health Organization (WHO). All the physicochemical parameters were within the permissible water quality standards recommended by (NSDWQ) and (WHO) except pH which were slightly alkaline. The microbiological parameters such as Ecoli and total coliform were above the prescribed limits of NSDWQ and WHO. This implies that the rain water should be treated to make it safe for drinking.

Carbon nanotubes1, nano-ribbons2, graphene3,fullerenes4,polyacetalenes and their derivatives have obtained much attention recently due to their unique chemical, mechanical, thermal, optical, electronic and magnetic properties5. These carbon materials are lightweight and can support a large strain for their crosssection. Additionally, their ability to conduct electricity increases their potential and usefulness.Their ability to conduct electricity emerges from the π-π conjugation effect and alternating single and double bonds affecting the structure of the HOMO-LUMO levels.

Nigerian Geography Ontology for Semantic Web Applications
  • Abstract
  • Keywords
  • Reference
  • Full Article
Semantic Web was introduced to overcome the challenges of the current Search engines where retrieval process is based on traditional keyword search. Retrieval based on traditional keyword search lacks semantics and as a result a lot of irrelevant results are returned. In Semantic Web, retrieval process is based on semantic which returned a more precise and relevant results. The main building block of Semantic Web is ontology. Therefore ontology is needed to build Semantic Web retrieval application. There are various ontologies developed on different domains in recent years. However in Ontology development process, each domain has its own peculiar challenges. In this paper,Nigerian Geography Ontology was developed. The developed ontology is used to build a Nigerian Geography knowledge-base which can be used for the developmentvarious Semantic Web applications related to Nigerian Geography.

This paper presents an experimental investigation for the behavior of flanged reinforced lightweight concrete (LWC) under combined stresses. LWC was obtained through the use of polystyrene foam as a partial aggregate's replacement to reduce the concrete dry unit weight from 23.0 kN/m3 to 18.1 kN/m3. The experimental work was consisted from two phases; The first phase quantified the mechanical properties of lightweight concrete; namely the compressive and tensile strengths as well as the tension stiffening capability of the concrete mix and The second phase was concerned with testing specimens of LWC beams (L and T-shaped) under combined stresses for determination of the ultimate resistance, mode of failure, ultimate angle of twist, and load-deflection curve for all tested beams..............

A method for measuring the thermal properties of anisotropic materials is proposed. In this study, we use wood with significant anisotropic characteristics as a research object, and combine the experimental data to simulate an effective analytical method. The purpose of obtaining the thermal conductivity and thermal diffusivity of the material in the orthogonal direction quickly and automatically has been achieved. According to the characteristics of wood, the variation law of the thermal conductivity at the significant angle of the wood grain change is obtained. Based on the measurement data and the characteristics of the molar stress circle, the maximum thermal conductivity and the minimum thermal conductivity distribution direction of the unknown internal structure are found.

  • Full Article
Cyclone dust collector is a stationary mechanical device that is used to filter solid particles from a carrier gas. Performance of cyclone is affected by two vital parameters, namely collection efficiency and pressure drop. Both parameters are strongly influenced by the geometry of the device. The geometric parameters that affect its performance are mainly height of conical section and cylinder, vortex finder length, vortex diameter, cone dip diameter, barrel diameter etc. This paper mainly focuses on the geometric parameters of a cyclone and analyzing its effect on the collection efficiency. In this paper, three different size cyclone dust collector models were used. The effect of cyclone size on performance parameters such as cut off diameter, pressure drop, and collection efficiency was investigated. The CFD analysis of three cyclone dust collectors was performed. Collection efficiency obtained from the analysis was then used to select the best model.

  • Full Article
In power system energy management system Load forecasting is the major part of the system. The exact load forecasting helps the electric utility to make unit commitment decisions, reduce spinning reserve capacity and schedule device maintenance plan properly. Apart from its plays a key role in reducing the generation cost, it is also essential to the reliability of power systems. In current scenario Load forecasting plays an important role in power system planning, operation and control. But for the proper Planning and precise operational applications of load forecasting requires a certain 'lead time' which is calledas forecasting intervals. On the basis of lead time, load forecasting types fall into four different categories: very short-term forecasts, short-term forecasts, medium-term forecasts and long-term forecasts..............

  • Full Article
Nowadays concrete plays a major role in the development of any country. It has become in such a way that the usage of concrete became second only to water around the world. In the last two decades environmental issues in the concrete industry have been paid a lot of attention, aiming at reducing the total environmental impact of concrete structures to a minimum, without compromising on their performance. A lot of different tools have been developed in order to reduce the environmental impact of concrete. Over 300 million tons of industrial wastes are being produced per annum by chemical and agricultural process in India. These materials possess problems of disposal problem. Paper fibers can be recycled only a limited number of times because the fibers become too short to make high quality paper............

Sea Level Changes in Izmir Bay
  • Abstract
  • Keywords
  • Reference
  • Full Article
The semi-diurnal tidal range is small along the Turkish coastline, being in the order of 30 cm. Therefore, sea level changes, are largely influenced by changes in air pressure and wind parameters. In this study, meteorological changes are related to seawater level changes. İzmir Bay located in the Aegean Sea of Turkey is chosen as the application area. Sea level, wind speed and direction, and pressure data of 1999-2016 measured at Menteş Station in the Bay have been analyzed. Hourly wind speed and direction measurements at nearby meteorological station have been used as well in the long term wind analyses. The twenty-five-hour moving average filter is applied to eliminate the tidal effects on the sea level measurements............
