Paper Crete Brick An Alternative To Paper Waste management

Abstract The research was conducted on investigation into papercrete brick, as an alternative to paper  waste management in Abubakar Tafawa Balewa University Bauchi. The demand of paper consumption represents a permanent issue in day to day activities which if a holistic approach is not taken to manage it waste effect, there won't be any sustainability achievement. A laboratory approach was employed ranging from soaking, mixing, casting and curing, finally physical ...

INVESTIGATING THE PROSPECT OF INTRODUCING TIDAL FLOW OPERATION BETWEEN GLOBE-INTERCHANGE AND KASARANI SECTION OF NAIROBI-THIKA ROAD

Most cities in Africa characteristically experience peak time traffic due to the commuter lifestyles of urban area residents. Therefore, in the morning roads leading to the central business district of most towns experience congestion while those leading out tend to have free flows. Traditional methods of solving this congestion problem such as additional roadway capacity have proved to be ineffective and overly expensive. Therefore, Solution of this kind of traffic congestion problem calls f...

Dearth of Construction Craftmen in Southwestern Nigeria; from the Architect Perspective

Several studies on construction craft skills have identified a number of problems including ineffective training as responsible for shortages of craftsmen in the construction industry. In Nigeria, the problem of shortages of craftsmen has been considered to be a multifaceted issue. This research therefore examined dearth of construction craft in south-western Nigeria. Largely, qualitative approach was adopted in conducting the research. Detailed literature review on shortages of crafts...

An Investigation of the use of Recycled concrete as aggregate in fresh concrete production

ABSTRACT In recent years there has been an increase in the number of construction works and concrete is the main construction material for most of the structures that are being built. Nigeria is a developing Country with a large population and land area therefore a consumer of concrete. This paper considers the option of recycling concrete in order to meet the high concrete demand and effective management of construction and demolition waste. The test focused on the use of recycled conc...

Design and performance evaluation of supplemental air supplied charcoal stove

Improved charcoal stoves are known to generally develop high thermal efficiencies, but most generate appreciable level of gas emissions which has made them unsuitable for use withinresidential buildings. In order to eliminate this constraint, a supplemental air supply power pack wasintroduced to improve charcoal stove thermal and aesthetic performance. This paper described theexperimental setup, test procedures and results showing optimized performance. Comparisonbetween performance character...
