Store Management System To JIT

AbstractMy project is to improve JIT store management system from manual to automated system.   Which is used to avoid problem faced by store keeper when store material manually. Store is the place where many varieties of materials are kept for the purpose of work. So at a time of storage is hard to write in document all material listing by their name, id, model, price and quantity; and is also boring to search specific material from whole material for human being but is easy for computer t...

Is Online Learning the Future of Education?

Abstract: Technology in our contemporary world has a whole lot of applications and has completely revolutionized the way we do things. Almost every quarter of a year something new that helps humans carry out activities in a simpler and efficient way is developed. With the level of advancement in the area of internet and computing, one can now successfully stay at home and learn or learn while on transit. This paper contains important information on how online learning otherwise known...

Design and Construction of Automatic Level Controller Circuit with 555 Timer IC

ABSTRACT Automatic water level controller circuit automatically switches ON and OFF a domestic water pump set depending on the tank water level. This motor driver circuit can be used at home, industry, school or even in agriculture. The approximated cost of the project is very less. The main advantage of this water level controller circuit is that it automatically controls the water pump without any user interaction. The main controller component is a NE 555 IC. We have manipula...

Modeling And Evaluation Of A Passive Flat-Plate Solar Collector

ABSTRACT This work investigated the variation of top loss heat transfer coefficient with the emittance of the absorber plate, the collector tilt angle and air gap spacing between the absorber plate and the cover plate. The effects of the emittance of the absorber plate, the collector tilt angle and air gap spacing between the plate and the cover on the collector performance were also considered. Data collected from the thermosyphon solar water heater constructed by the National Centre ...

EFFECTIVENESS OF THE TREATMENT OF FINE-GRAINED LATERITIC SOIL USING SUGARCANE BAGASSE ASH (SCBA) FOR USE IN MODERN DAY CONSTRUCTION

ABSTRACTSugarcane as an agricultural product is a readily available source of food for its sugarcontent. However, Sugarcane Bagasse Ash (SCBA) is the bi- product formed at sugarindustries from the burning of sugarcane after the sugar content has been extracted.Sugarcane Bagasse Ash (SCBA) is a fibrous waste product containing mainly aluminum andsilica, calcium ions to produce calcium aluminate hydrate (CAH) and calcium silicatehydrate (CSH) shown in the pozzolanic reaction below.Ca2+ + 2(OH)-...

ARDUINO BASED OBSTACLE AVOIDANCE ROBOT CAR

ABSTRACTThis project involves the design and implementation of an intelligent obstacle-avoiding robot car. Theobjective of this project is to implement a robot car, which while moving should have the ability todetect obstacles in its path and change direction where obstacles are present without any form ofexternal influence. The new direction to be taken to avoid collision is the direction that has the mostdistance between the obstacle and the sensor and this is determined by the robot based ...

Experimental and Numerical Study of Multi Hole Extrusion Process: A Comparative Study

ABSTRACTWhen comparing with other manufacturing technologies, the extrusion technology always stands out as it is known to be highly efficient in terms of producing products of superior quality with the least possible amount of wastage. With the ever-increasing cost of materials, energy and the competition in the market, it becomes almost necessary to device a model with the minimum number of trials and shortest lead time. A multi-hole extrusion process was hence devised to serve the abo...

Investigation of Date Palm Seed Ash (DPSA) as Pozzolana in Concrete

This research investigates the improvement of the mechanical and durability properties of concrete using Date Palm Seed Ash (DPSA) as partial replacement of cement. The DPSA used was obtained by controlled burning of date palm seed in a kiln at a maximum temperature of 630oc for eight hours and after cooling, it was sieved through 75um sieve and its oxide composition analysis was conducted using X-ray fluorescence (XRF) procedures. DoE me...

Development of a Savonius Vertical Axis Wind Turbine

Wind energy is abundant, inexhaustible, affordable, environmentally preferable, and equally sustainable. More researches are emerging in the analysis of wind energy in Nigeria and each have proven that great potential exist for wind power generation in Nigeria but sufficient results is yet to be achieved in terms of application. The present research is intended to apply the technology of wind energy for pumping of water in rural Nigeria. To achieve this, a Savonius vertical axis wind tu...

Control, Automation and Monitoring Of Hardboard Production Process Using PLCSCADA System

Human necessities are increasing day by day where as the factories are running out of resources. To ameet these demands industries need to improve the quality and quantity of their production. Programmable logic controllers (PLCs) have been used for many decades for standard control in industrial and factory environments. Over the years, PLCs have become computational efficient and powerful, and a robust platform with applications beyond the standard control and factory automat...

Solid waste management and its role in mitigating environmental degradation with special reference to recycling of wood wastes

Due to rapid industrialization, urbanization and population growth in India, solid waste generation has been increased to a large extent. In recent years,  disposal of solid wastes has caused serious environmental  hazards and economic problems.  India generates 1.45MT of wastes per day at present. Annual increase in overall quantity of solid waste is assessed at about 5% and nearly three-fourths of the waste is generated in urban areas. Municipal Solid Wastes (MSW) amount is e...

Techno-economic study of a Biomass Briquetting Unit

The present study analyses the ongoing efforts to solve the fuel crisis of The Western India Plywoods Ltd (WIP), a large wood-based panel industry in Kerala via fuel briquettes from wood wastes generated from its own various manufacturing units with a well proven technique called biomass briquetting. Saw dust and other wood wastes and residues from all types of primary and secondary wood processing operations are generally bulky in nature and are therefore expensive to store and transport. Al...

Evaluation of the Growth and the Nutritional Status of the Leaves and Roots of Moringa oleiferaunder the Influence of Organomineral Amendments in Humid Tropical Region

This study aimed to evaluate the influence of organomineral fertilizer on the growth and mineral composition of Moringa oleifera organs. The experiment included three doses of cow dung, three doses of mineral fertilizers and two doses combining mineral fertilizers and cow dung. Soil samples and samples of M. oleifera organs were analyzed. Results revealed the contribution of fertilizer to improve soil chemical properties, except pH. The best vegetative development was obtained with the d...

Assessment of Post-harvest Handling Practices and Losses of Maize in Ejura-sekyeredumase Municipality

 Introduction to the background of the study: Maize (Zea mays) is the highest produced cereal crop and the most widely consumed food in Ghana with increasing production since 1965 (FAO, 2008; Morris et al., 1999). Maize is cultivated in all the ten regions of the country however the leading producing areas are mainly in the middle-southern part (Brong Ahafo, Eastern and Ashanti provinces) where 84 percent of the maize is grown, with the remaining 16 percent being grown in the northern re...

Assessing Growth Rate of Jatropha Plant (Height and Diameter) Under Different Method of Propagation in Nyankpala In Northern Region Ghana

ABSTRACTThe study was carried out at Nyankpala in the Northern region of Ghana from November 2012 to April 2013 to investigate the growth rate of Jatropha plant under two methods of propagation (seeds and cuttings) that best support the growth of the plant. Data on the survival rate, height and diameter were collected and other data were obtained through observation. Each of the plantation was divide into nine (9) plots and five plots were selected randomly for the studies. Each of the planta...
