Study of micro structure, mechanical properties & corrosion behavior of weld overlay of super duplex stainless steel on carbon steel substrate by Shielded metal Arc welding

Abstract        In today’s  industrialization world, there is very common problem faced in every industry from long time where the material wear and tear is happened and required to eliminate as soon as possible to get the more utilization of equipment and avoid the shutdown timing to increase the productivity and earn more and more money for getting good growth in company as well as nation.   The wear and tear mainly occurs due to corrosion, abrasion...

Overcoming the Impact of Covid-19 Outbreak Using Value Integrated Project Delivery Model

ABSTRACT Value engineering is a systematic approach, widely used to optimize the design or process or product in the designing stage. It used to achieve the client's obligation by increasing the functionality and attain the targeted cost in the cost planning. Value engineering effectiveness and benefits decrease along with the progress of the project since the change in the scope of the work and design will account for more cost all along the lifecycle of the  project.  Integrating  the  ...

Influence of Metocean Conditions on Marine Operation(s)

Offshore structures, which are placed in the ocean for the exploration and production of resourcesunderneath the ocean floor, are at the mercy of the environment they are subject to by nature. Theseconditions   that   the   structures   may   face   are   the   ocean   waves,   wind,   tidal,   swell   and   current.Earthquakes and Tsunami waves may also occur in the water in certain parts of the world. For thesurvival of these structures, the effects of the enviro...

The book coves the  fundamental concept of marine engineering. Thus, providing a basic exposition for future mariner's

Investigative Analysis of Marine Tugboat Accident in Nigeria. A Case Study of Bayelsa, Delta and Rivers State

The research paper showed that the major causes of boat and ferry accidents in Nigeria include human factor errors, natural factors, and technical factors. The safety of life and navigation at sea are important to coastal, flag states and the entire international shipping community in sustaining the  growth  of  global  sea  trade.  National  governments  and  indeed  the  Federal  government  of Nigeria have committed substanti...

READINESS OF NIGERIAN CONSTRUCTION PROFESSIONALS TO ADOPT BIM TECHNOLOGY IN CONSTRUCTION PROJECT DELIVERY

ABSTRACTBuilding Information Modelling (BIM) represents the formation of digital models for use during the planning, design, construction and operation stages of a facility’s life. Its productivity and economic benefits to the global building industry are widely acknowledged and increasingly well understood. BIM continues to dominate processes across the built environment, as it offers extensive opportunities to drive a more effective and efficient built environment. Yet, despite the obviou...

DESIGNING OF A WIND TURBINE USING WIND ENERGY POTENTIAL, A CASE OF FUTA

In this study of designing a wind turbine using wind energy potential, a case of FUTA. Weibull distribution function method was adopt with the help of probability density function and cumulative density function analysis, the wind speed characteristics and energy potential of the study area was investigated using hourly wind speed data that span between 1 and 12 months (1year) and measured at a height of 10 m. Hellmann power law was used to derive the wind characteristics of the study area to...

In this paper we shall consider these institutional aspects of improving seaport performance under three convenient headings:1. Operation.2. Maintenance.3. Safety.

DEVELOPMENT OF A PROPELLER DRIVEN TRICYCLE FOR INTRA-CAMPUS USE

This project proposes the use of a propellers to power a lightweight vehicle as a non-conventional means of transportation within the school environment.Propellers work based on the generation of thrust sufficient enough to move a mass (in this case, a lightweight, three-wheeled vehicle) to which it is connected. The propeller powered vehicle makes use of this thrust generated as the basic source of power needed for acceleration.Although there already exist various works on the develop...

COMMUNICATION AND PROJECT TEAM INTEGRATION IN THE NIGERIAN CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY

 ABSTRACT  The  construction  industry  is  known  to  be  highly  fragmented  in  that  it  requires  the  inputs  of numerous parties to deliver a project. The fragmentation of the construction process necessitates effective integration of the numerous parties and the major tool for achieving this integration is effective communication. This study investigates the communication tools used in project deliver...

IMPACT OF RISK MANAGEMENT ON THE SUCCESS OF PROJECTS: AN ASSESSMENT OF SELECTED CONSTRUCTION COMPANIES IN FCT, NIGERIA

Background of the Study:  Every construction company all over the world expects not only to break even in every project undertaken, but to also make a reasonable level of profit that will satisfy the owners of the company. This is only possible if the activities involved in undertaking  any particular project are optimized, viz-á-viz the factors of time, cost and quality are successfully brought into optimal play, which defines the success of the project. But  un...
