The Steam Boiler

CHAPTER ONETHE STEAM BOILER1.0 INTRODUCTION Boilers are pressure vessels designed to heat water or produce steam which can then be used to provide space heating and/ or service water heating to a building. In most commercial heating applications, the heating source in the boiler is a natural gas fired burner. Oil fired burners and electric resistance heaters can be used as well. Steam is preferred over hot water in some applications, including absorption cooling, kitchen, laundries, ste...

Automation of Crime Record (A Case Study of Area D Division Ilorin)

ABSTACT This Automation of crime record was developed for Recording crime for the police of Division D in Ilorin Kwara state. This system will help the Nigerian Police of providing information regarding criminals and the various activities they had carried out in the (recent) past, it also will go a long way in helping to checkmate crimes and criminals, this will also help in identifying new cases of crimes within a given locality. The application can record crime, report crime, s...

Physico-Chemical Investigation on Dumpsite Leachate in Ilorin Metropolis

CHAPTER ONE1.0       INTRODUCTION1.1       Background of the studyThe municipal solid waste dumpsite (MSWD) examined is located at sawmill, okefomo and irewolede at yidi road street and within Ilorin Metropolis Kwara State. The dumpsites examined contain both biodegradable and non-biodegradable materials of all sorts. The different waste materials may contain different physical, chemical and biochemical properties. In the presen...

Design and Construction of a Variable Resistance Box

ABSTRACTIn this project a resistance box has been constructed using locally available materials namely, 1/3 and plywood for the construction of the box, cupper wire, Ferro board, soldering iron, soldering lead, screw and resistors. The resistance obtainable from the box ranges from 2-11W. The box is fitted with terminal s to allow easy use in physics laboratory practical. At the end of the experiment, the values obtained are very close to those obtainable using imported box. TA...

Effect of some organic additives on compressive strength of clay bricks

ABSTRACTOrganic additives are agro-waste materials which when mixed with clay; improve its physical properties and its performance. These physical properties include compression strength, density, porosity etc. In addition to cost, challenges facing clay bricks are their reliability. The effect of some organic additives on compressive strength of clay bricks was investigated, were some possible organic additives, including Rice husk, Rice husk ash, Cow dung and Cow dung ash were considered. A...

THE NOVELTY OF MEMRISTORS IN TECHNOLOGICAL DEVELOPMENT

ABSTRACTTypically electronics has been defined in terms of three fundamental elements such asresistors, capacitors and inductors. These three elements are used to definethe four fundamental circuit variables which are electric current, voltage,charge and magnetic flux. Resistors are used to relate current to voltage,capacitors to relate voltage to charge, and inductors to relate current tomagnetic flux, but there was no element which could relate charge to magneticflux. To overcome this ...
