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...

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...

Consequences and Evaluation of the Involvement of Foreign Companies in Road Constriction in Kwara State.

ABSTRACTThis project involves the “consequences evaluation of foreign on road construction in Nigeria”.The methods used in achieving the aims of these projects are:The visitation and interview of selected government prostates in charge of granting of major road construction contract to know why they prefer patronizing the foreign contractors to the local ones. The interview of selected foreign companies through the printing and distribution of questionnaires to know the ways ...

Physical Infrastructure For Sustainable National Development

INTRODUCTION First of all, I like to thank God for this opportunity to stand before th all of you this afternoon to deliver the 29 in the series of Public Lectures organized by Covenant University. I like to thank the Chancellor, the Vice-Chancellor, the Registrar and all members of Management for giving me the opportunity to use this platform to express my views on the issue of Infrastructure development in our country and continent. Secondly I like to acknowledge my faith in God and...

Dewatering in Construction Works

Dewatering means “the separation of water from the soil,” or perhaps “taking the water out of a particular construction problem completely.” Areas that once were deemed unsuitable for construction due to a high water table are now being developed to meet the needs of an increasing population. With the decline in land availability to build or expand highway networks above ground, underground facilities, such as mass-transit lines, may represent the future of transportation. Under...

THE COMPARATIVE ANALYSIS OF THE STRENGTH OF CONCRETE MADE FROM VARIOUS AGGREGATE

ABSTRACTThe work has gone a long way in determining strength of concrete made of various aggregates such as granites stone, black gravel, washed gravel and surface gravel.Some factors such as porosity of the  aggregate temperature coursing lose of water plate form for mixing of concrete mix affect the workability and eventually the strength of concrete.This project work consist of using hydraulic machine to carryout the compressive test of the strength of concrete made of the earlier men...
