Design and Construction of Mini-stainless oven with a Two and One Shutdown System

AbstractThe aim of this work is to characterize properties and microstructure of stainless steel used as a coating on welding of carbon steel sheets. Two carbon steel plates were set as the metal base and the stainless steel coating was applied on the weld bead. The applied process used was the submerged arc welding (SAW) and tests were carried out for the tensile strength and Vickers hardness, in addition to observation of the microstructure by optical microscopy. The results indicated that ...

Design and construction of bio-gas for household use

ABSTRACT: The designed air driven engine is an economic friendly engine which operates with the aid of a compressed air. in principle, an air driven engine uses the expansion of compressed air to drive the pistons of an engine. an bio gas driven engine is a pneumatic actuator that creates useful work by expanding compressed gas. there is no mixing of fuel with gas as there is no combustion. An gas driven engine makes use of compressed gas technology for its operation the compressed a...

Human Activity Recognition by Wearable Sensors

The purpose of this project is to develop a model that is capable of recognizing daily basic human activities under real-world conditions, using data collected by a waist-mounted triaxial accelerometer and gyroscope built into a cellphone (in our study, a Samsung Galaxy S II). Activity recognition is formulated as a supervised classification problem, whose data is obtained via an experiment having 30 human subjects perform each of the activities. Our classi...
