Sinkholes And Rock Caries

Date: 15-12-2015 13:27

Sinkholes and rock caries
Sinkholes form underground through the dissolution and chemical decomposition of the rock surface or relatively consolidated soils. They do form at increased rate when there are conditions for minor species and bacterial colonies to establish themselves.
Under good natural conditions when the ground is covered wi ... read full abstract ››

Depicting Coastal Morphological Landscape Evolution From Anthropogenic Activities & Building Management Strategies For ‘coast In Crisis’ In The ‘state Of Kuwait’

Date: 11-11-2015 05:10

The study was conducted with the motive of investigating a) the trend in the evolution of Kuwait coastal morphological landscape (CML) and coastline from 1960s to 2012; b) to understand coastal landscape degradation and deterioration happening; and c) future scenarios in Kuwait. This research on evolution and trend of CML primarily focused on the 5 ... read full abstract ››

Computational Approach To Investigation Of Crack Behaviour Under Vehicular Loading Of A Typical Concrete Pavement ( Case Study Of Mbagathi Road In Nairobi County, Kenya)

Date: 10-11-2015 18:35

Nairobi County has nearly 100% road network as bituminous roads and only 4km road network (Mbagathi Road) is concrete road. This road was a pilot project that was implemented by Kenyan Government between the years 2005 and 2007 at a total construction cost of over 400 million Kenya Shillings. The design was done based on South Africa design procedure on a 210 mm thick PJCP pav ... read full abstract ››

Modeling Natural Frequencies Of Vibration Of Three Dimensional Frames Under Two Dimensional Loading

Date: 06-11-2015 10:55

The aim of this study was to determine the relationship between natural frequency of vibration, the height of the structure, the stiffnesses of members and number bays of a structure. The relationship was to be developed based on data obtained using two methods. The methods were theoretical whereby Computer Modeling was undertaken based on structural theory, and experimental, ... read full abstract ››

Balaila’ Model For Manpower Allocation In Service Jobs

Date: 24-04-2015 17:05

The work measurement concept has evolved from the manufacturing world but has not been fully adopted yet to the global shift to the service sector and the high-tech firms. Certain factors create inherent difficulties in determining time standards for manpower allocation in service jobs: (a) non circulating process and numerous ancillary tasks (b) ... read full abstract ››

Study Of The Cerebral Activity Modulation Due To The Radiation Produced By A Commercial Mobile Phone Conducted Using Eeg-tms

Date: 09-01-2015 00:58

The diffusion of technological devices poses the problem of their impact on both human health and behaviour. In particular, it has been much debated in the scientific community what impact electromagnetic radiation fields emitted by cell phones may have on the users of such devices. In order to archive such an evaluation, the current work has been ... read full abstract ››

Theoretical And Experimental Study Of The Variation Of Cmrr Due To Variations Of Patient Cables In Electrocardiographs

Date: 09-01-2015 00:23

The electrocardiogram is undoubtedly the most popular examination for its high content of pathophysiological information, simplicity, bloodlessly, safety and for economical reasons. This analysis has a great diagnostic importance, so very close constraints are imposed to the quality of the electronic signal. Among the electronic features of an elec ... read full abstract ››

Glacier Recovery

Date: 14-09-2014 14:12

Glaciers are an integral part of the Earth. There are periods of withdrawal like what is happening now. But absolute disappearance of glaciers is only theoretically possible. Practically, always some factor will interfere to make them grow again. Although there are many localities where it can appear to have almost d ... read full abstract ››

Atmosphere And Sea Level

Date: 11-09-2014 15:57

For a planet to have an atmosphere it should have enough mass to hold the air with its force of gravity. For instance moon has no atmosphere. Its mass is still not enough to hold the gases. As for Earth it must have been more than a billion years ago that it got the necessary mass to hold the gases from escaping as t ... read full abstract ››

Tranquillisation Of Coastal Waves

Date: 08-09-2014 14:11

On windless mornings and no tremors at the bottoms the beach sides are very tranquil. Inviting people to swim in them and have some fun. Such tranquil waters have become seldom. The seas have turned rough. Even the slightest wind turns tranquillity to turbulence.

Earlier, s ... read full abstract ››
