Fabrication of Twin Panel Metal Door

ABSTRACTPrivacy and security are major essential human needs in various houses, offices etc. ability to afford quality door and high long life span at an affordable price to an average Nigerian has been a problem. This project is aimed at fabrication of a double panel door which is capable of giving maximum security to life and properties. The locally available material (mild steel) of different shapes, sizes and forms was used with available indigenous technology without compromising t...

Determination of Headway and Average Travel Speed of Vehicles (Case Study of Post Office-Kwara State Polytechnic Permanent Site Car Park Road)

ABSTRACT Since it is compulsory that people and goods move from one part of the country to the other or within particular defined regional area, the facilities used for this purpose need to be well planned, designed and constructed. Inadequate and unplanned traffic control constitute a lot of problems resulting in delay, congestion, immobility to uneasy access to transport etc. This project is to determine the headway and average travel speed of vehicles (Case study of post office- ...

Modeling Of Gas Pollution From Ilorin Animal Waste Dumpsite

ABSTRACTAtmospheric emission of trace gases such as carbon (iv) oxide (co4), carbon (II) oxide (co), methane (ch4) e.t.c. associated with animal waste are world wild problem and may contribute to a detrimental impact on the environment in such a way that millions of people will be affected especially poor people who live in precarious location or depend on land for sustenance living. And this effect was determined by modeling the effect of trace gases on the environment. The two ...

Preprocessing and Simulation of Out of Hospital Cardiac Arrest Outcomes Data

Out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) is a cessation of cardiac mechanical activity that occurs outside of the hospital setting and is confirmed by the absence of signs of circulation. OHCA affects nearly 1000 adult Americans every day, with overall survival rate of 10.4%. Based on previous work in this subject I try to calculate the joint probability distributions of the neurological outcomes of the OHCA outcomes in our records, based on the Event Demographics, Field Care, and Hospital ...

DETERMINATION OF ENGINEERING PROPERTIES OF SANDCRETE BLOCK USING DIFFERENT GRADE OF CEMENT

The ultimate purpose of this project investigates COMPARATIVE STUDY OF THE ENGINEERING PROPERTIES OF SANDCRETE BLOCKS USING DIFFERENT BRANDS/GRADE OF CEMENT.Over 90% of physical infrastructures in Nigeria are being constructed using sandcrete blocks making it a very important material in building construction. It is widely used in Nigeria, Ghana, and other African countries as load bearing and non-load bearing walling units. For a long time in Nigeria, sandcrete blocks are manufactured in man...

Evaluating the Effect of Adding Steel Machining Chips on the Properties of Clay

Abstract:Steel machining waste known as chips is a kind of waste that can be returned to the process of raw material for steel fabrication or else be traded as co-product of other industrial activities. The reuse of this product is of great importance owing to the economic and environmental aspects. This work investigates the effect of steel machining chips as additive on the properties of clay. The physical properties of the clay and steel machining chips composite were determ...

Energy Efficiency in Cement Industry: A Case Study of Lafarge Cement, Zambia

Abstract The main aim of this research is to determine how energy improvement, efficiency and conservation can be achieved in industry such as the cement plant. Energy, is an essential ingredient for socio-economic development and economic growth. The objective of the energy system is to provide energy services. Energy services are the desired and useful products, processes or indeed services that result from the use of energy, such as for lighting, provision of air-conditioned indoor cl...

TRIAL ERROR AND OUTLIER IN AGRICULTURAL EXPERIMENT DATA AND THEIR HANDLING

AbstractOutlier is a questionable plot value which differs greatly from the mean of all other replications of a specific treatment while trial error may occur as a result of a mistake in measurement or transcription during data collection or entry. The presence of any of the two confounds the inferences made from the data analyses especially the F-statistic whose estimate is based on sample means and variances. This report was intended to show how Genstat statistical software package assists ...

Determination of Physical Properties of Afzelia Africana Seeds

AbstractSelected physical properties of Afzelia africana seeds were determined at four moisture levels: 10.60%, 12.80%, 15.20% and 18.40% wet basis (w.b). The seeds were categorized in three batches according to their weights: Batch I (2g
