Production of Kenaf Fibre Reinforced Polyethylene Composite for Ballistic Protection

Kenaf reinforced polyethylene composites for ballistic protection was produced in this work. The samples of alkaline treated and silane-coupled non-woven matted kenaf fibers were cut to the required dimensions and oriented vertically and horizontally in combinations with a virgin high density polyethylene (VHDPE). The composite panels were produced using Box-Behnken 3-variables settings. The following factors settings were used (molding temperature: 160 0C to 200 0C; molding time: 60 minute...

Energy Audit, Optimisation and Management of Liquified Natural Gas Plants With Renewable Energy Resources Around the Plant: A Case Study of Brass LNG Limited, Brass Island, Nigeria

An energy audit on the Brass Liquified Natural Gas plant at Brass Island former Agip facility was carried. The average offshore windspeed and wave return periods for 12months  were measured for their wind and wave energy potentials. Also,  the solar insolation for the location was collected for a 12month period. A pilot design based on techno-economic analysis was made for a wind-solar- gas turbine hybrid power system and results showed it's cheaper, environmentally friend, and more efficie...

RECOVERY OF HEAVY OIL USING THE TOE-TO- HEEL AIR INJECTION, (THAI) METHOD BY ANEKWE MICHAEL I. (PETROLEUM ENGINEERING DEPT. FUTO)

ABSTRACT This project work deals on the feasibility of transferring the Toe – To – Heel Air Injection (THAI) technology which is a new in-situ combustion method of heavy oil recovery from Alberta, Canada, where the technology has recorded success with high rate of recovery to South-West, Nigeria (Ondo state) for efficient heavy oil recovery. In this work, the textural, reservoir, physical and chemical properties of oil sand in Nigeria were compared with ...

Prediction of Generalised and localized carbon steel corrosion using improved Norsok and Papavinasam Models

Carbon steel corrosion is a commonly encountered issue in pipelines transporting hydrocarbons containing corrosive agents such as CO2, H2S and water. As a result, several corrosion prediction models have been put forward over the years although no standard model exists for corrosion prediction in the industry. Two of such models are the Norsok model for predicting sweet generalized corrosion and the Papavinasam model for predicting localised corrosion which are both insufficient to accurately...

INVESTIGATING THE OPTICAL AND MECHANICAL PROPERTIES OF PHOSPHORESCENT SILICONE RUBBER AS A COMPLEMENTARY SOURCE OF LIGHTING

The household lighting cost accounts for 10% of the electric bill, changing the light bulbs effectively can reduce the long term energy costs significantly. In Nigeria, where less than one percent of the population has access to 24 hours of interrupted power supply there is a need for a complementary, renewable source of light which provides enough illumination at a reasonable price, with assured safety using it and also using for a long duration of time before the need to replace it. Recentl...

Design and Simulation of Telemetry Link and Power System for ABT-18 Unmanned Aerial Vehicle

ABSTRACTThe Airbeetle-18 unmanned Aircraft is an Aircraft design for the purpose of surveillance following the fact that the parent Airbeetle-18 has almost reached the end of its life time. Hence, there is need to convert it to an unmanned aircraft in other to extend its service life time.A comprehensive literature review was carried out on Telemetry and power system design and the previous work done as it pertains to aircraft in Airbeetle-18 category. Furthermore, system requirem...

STUDIES ON THE HAEMATOLOGICAL CHARACTERISTICS OF CLARIAS GARIEPINUS FROM GUBI DAM, BAUCHI STATE, NIGERIA

ABSTRACTStudies were carried out to determine the haematological characteristics of Clarias gariepinus healthy specimens were obtained from Gubi dam. Blood sample ranging between 1.0-1.5ml were taken with the aid of sterilized syringe (21G) inserted by caudal vein puncture. The haematological parameters for each blood specimen were measured using automated haematological analyzer (sysmex  Kx 21N; 000758 model). Blood biochemical analysis to determine plasma albumin, glucose, protein, sodi...

Effect of coconut fibre on the properties of maize-cob cement sheet

Nigeria has plenty of Agricultural waste products such as coconut fibre, rice husk, corn cob and oil palm frond fibre. If the waste cannot be disposed properly it, will lead to social and environmental problem.The selection of coconut fibre in this study is a good effort in order to reduce a bulk of coconut fibre waste in Nigeria, according to a survey that was conducted by Ministry of Agricultural, Malaysia  (Hisbany, 2005). There will be a huge amount of waste with these huge plantatio...
