Influence of Polypropylene Fibers on Geotechnical Properties of Pond Ash

AbstractPond ash is an unwanted product from thermal power stations. Way of reducing the pollution of pond ash disposal determinations is recycled and reused in different engineering applications. The quality of pond ash can affect the quality and strength of engineering applications. This research paper using fiber reinforcement techniques to improve the geotechnical properties of pond ash. Polypropylene fiber is used to reinforce for stabilization of pond ash. In this research, some labo...

Design and Construction of a Remote Controlled Tri–Band Frequency Jammer.

CHAPTER ONEINTRODUCTION1.1       BACKGROUND OF THE STUDYA mobile phone jammer or signal blocker is an instrument used to prevent cellular phones from receiving signals from base stations. The process of blocking the receiver to receive a transmitted signal is called Jamming of the signal. The jammer effectively disallows cellular phone signal when activated. These devices can be used in practically any location, but are found primarily in places where a pho...

Investigation on the Characteristics of Cornstalk Ash Blended Cement

ABSTRACTAnalysis of investigation on the characteristics of cornstalk blended ash cement was carried out based on the interest of coming out with a good pozzolanic material with all required cement properties. Hence, the supposed competitive demand relationship between cement products in construction works has been majorly wined by cement and this makes people to depend mostly on it despite the increase in price and some with inadequate properties.      &nb...

Effect of Crushed Concrete as Coarse Aggregates in Production of Concrete

ABSTRACTIn the face of a possible scarcity of natural aggregates in the future in line with sustainable construction, this research investigates the feasibility of the use of recycled coarse  aggregates as an alternative to natural coarse aggregates in structural concrete. The recycled coarse aggregate used in the research was processed from waste concrete. The percentage of recycled coarse aggregates by weight of all in aggregates in the test mixes were 0%, 5% 10% 20% and 30 % res...

Analysis and Management of Road Accident A Case Study (Ilorin- Omu Aran Road Kwara State)

ABSTRACTThe major objective of this research is to examine the variation patterns of road traffic accident in Ilorin-Omu- Aran Road, Kwara State.

Investigation Into the Operation of Different Transport Agency in Kwara State (Case Study of Different Transport Motor E.G Kasmag, Emirate, Young Legacy and Kwara Express)

ABSTRACTThis project is based on Investigation into the operation of different transport agency in  Kwara Express, Young Legacy, Kasmag and Emirate service Questionnaires and oral interview method of data collections were adopted, in which about 100 questions are distributed and oral interviews carried out in the study area. The results was analysed and fuel price is the major factor that is influencing vehicle operation costs. While cost maintenance of the vehicle is also contrib...

Final Year Project Proposal on Effect Of Reprocessed Pure Water Sachet (Pws) on the Properties Of Wood Wool (A Case Study of Omo Wood Alstonia Longensis)

CHAPTER ONE BACKGROUND TO THE STUDY1.0      INTRODUCTIONRight from when man stated to build, he has been compelled to use the locally available materials around him. Building has now become major construction material allover the world has necessitated a critical study of its constituent materials. More so, the present economic crunch calls for cost saving measures on the part of engineers/researchers involved in the management of the country’s project. ...

Design and Production of Ceiling Board Using Plaster of Paris (P.O.P) Gypsum Material

CHAPTER ONE1.0     INTRODUCTION          This project deals with the design and production of ceiling board using Plaster of Paris [POP] gypsum materials. Plaster of Paris [POP] is a white powdery mixture of gypsum. It has been named such because the first deposit of gypsum was found is Paris. This powder when mixed with water solidifies, but without losing its volume. During manufacturing process, the gypsum is heated and...

The Effect of Admixtures on Properties of Co`Ncrete: Case Studies of Sugar, Cow Bone Ash, Groudnut Shell Ash, and Lime Stone Powder

ABSTRACT          The project titled “The effect of admixtures on properties of concrete: case study of sugar, cow bone ash, groundnut shell ash, and lime stone powder” was carried out with the aim of knowing the effect the of the various types of admixtures used on the properties of concrete, in term of the workability of concrete, durability of concrete and the concrete strength. The material used are cow bone ash, groundnut shell ...

Investigation Into Level of Services (A Case Study of Egbejila Road)

ABSTRACTThis project was executed in order to investigate into the level of service of Egbejila Road Ilorin west Local Government Kwara State and improvement options. It was carried out to determine the rigidity quality, traffic characteristics and traffic volume study of the road, which was put into consideration in order to know what really cause the failure and how to determine the improvement option for such road. It was also discussed; some of the possible effect of contractio...
