A Study Towards The Improvement Of Water Supply In Kibuku-kadama Rural Growth Centre Kibuku District

ABSTRACT This report is part of our final year project II that only focuses on the water improvement. The study was done to determine the water demand, water quantity and the yields. Other sources were done using soil map, land use map of the study area and run it in to ARCGIS to determine the catchment area and soil type of the area. This report has been arranged in chapters whose contents are as below; Chapter one: Introduction which give the general background of the study introduction, de...

Assessing The Capacity And Performance Of Kubiri Roundabout

ABSTRACTUse of roundabouts as a viable traffic control measure of traffic flow at priority points is increasing in most of growing towns in Uganda. Their strength lies in their ability to reduce the number of vehicular conflicts at intersections and thereby enhance intersection capacityand safety. There are additional intangible benefits of roundabouts such as their traffic calming effect, gateway feature and aesthetics. Increasingly, many roundabouts in growing urban town...

The main purpose of this project is to investigate the suitability of the available laterite materials in Ilorin east local Government.To determine the suitability of the soil in the three selected areas, Various tests were carried out on- the samples and those are classification test which is a test used in determining the type of soil. Also strength evaluation test was also done on the soil samples so as to...

ASSESSMENT OF OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH AND SAFETY IN CONSTRUCTION COMPANIES IN SELECTED CONSTRUCTION COMPANIES IN UGANDA

ABSTRACT Construction is widely regarded as an accident prone industry. The reasons why construction is risky and prone to health and safety risks are because of the physical environment of the work, nature of the construction work operations, construction methods, construction materials, heavy equipment used, and physical properties of the construction project itself. The human, social and economic costs of occupational accidents, injuries, diseases and major industrial disasters have long b...

DESIGN AND PRODUCTION OF CEILING BOARD USING PLASTER OF PARIS (P.O.P) GYPSUM MATERIAL

1.0 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 in Paris. This powder when mixed with water solidifies, but without losing its volume. During manufacturing process, the gypsum is heated and as such, it does not necessarily require any high heat treatment like ceramics and clays [Worr...
