  • Alpha - Skew Pi - Armendariz Rings

    • Authors: Areej M Abduldaim; Ahmed M Ajaj
      Abstract: In this article we introduce a new concept called Alpha-skew Pi-Armendariz rings (Alpha - S Pi - AR)as a generalization of the notion of Alpha-skew Armendariz rings.Another important goal behind studying this class of rings is to employ it in order to design a modern algorithm of an identification scheme according to the evolution of using modern algebra in the applications of the field of cryptography.We investigate general properties of this concept and give examples for illustration. Furthermore, this paperstudy the relationship between this concept and some previous notions related to Alpha-skew Armendariz rings. It clearly presents that every weak Alpha-skew Armendariz ring is Alpha-skew Pi-Armendariz (Alpha-S Pi-AR). Also, thisarticle showsthat the concepts of Alpha-skew Armendariz rings and Alpha-skew Pi- Armendariz rings are equivalent in case R is 2-primal and semiprime ring.Moreover, this paper proves for a semicommutative Alpha-compatible ringR that if R[x;Alpha] is nil-Armendariz, thenR is an Alpha-S Pi-AR. In addition, if R is an Alpha - S Pi -AR, 2-primal and semiprime ring, then N(R[x;Alpha])=N(R)[x;Alpha]. Finally, we look forwardthat Alpha-skew Pi-Armendariz rings (Alpha-S Pi-AR)be more effect (due to their properties) in the field of cryptography than Pi-Armendariz rings, weak Armendariz rings and others.For these properties and characterizations of the introduced concept Alpha-S Pi-AR, we aspire to design a novel algorithm of an identification scheme.

  • Causes of delay in construction projects: The case of oil and gas projects

    • Authors: Aliyeh Kazemi; Ali Katebi, Mohammad-Hossein Kazemi
      Abstract: Successful implementation of construction projects is one of the key factors for economic development of every country. Every year, a major part of the countries’ capital is allocated to civil and infrastructure projects, most of which are implemented with delay. Construction projects are often criticized for overrunning time and budgets. Analyzing the factors causing delay is essential with the aim of omitting them and timely implementation of these projects. Research to identify the reasons and causes of delays have been conducted in different countries and by various researches. In this paper, various research has studied different factors affecting construction projects delays have been studied. These factors have been identified in four groups consisted of owner, consultant, conductor, and other factors. Moreover, on account of the importance of oil and gas projects, the mentioned factors for these kinds of projects are taken into consideration. The results showed that change orders and changes in scope of work by owner, delay in reviewing of documents by consultant, inadequate experience and knowledge and errors during construction by contractor, and low productivity of laborer have been indicated as key factors comparing with the other as crucial factors causing delay in the oil and gas construction projects.

  • Using a Shading Tool to Reform Window designing due to Solar Radiation

    • Authors: Bahar Sultan Qurraie; Figen Beyhan
      Abstract: Sun is the significant criterion that plays the most important role in architectural design. The sun's heat and radiation interact with the designed components of form and façade. These shading elements exhibit different expressions according to the structure orientation and the sun position. According to the climate of structure’s location, the expressions are being used to better respond to the environment in sustainable architecture. In order to get to this point, it is very important to calculate the shading geometry and solar energy during the day and to provide more suitable systems in glass and window designing.  According to this, in order to arrive at more suitable shading systems by supporting MATLAB program, the software is written by taking the previous works as basis and closing some of their mistakes. According to the climate data, this program takes the plan drawings of window’s zone and some other information of window, the annual shading simulations are presented.  Due to these simulations incident solar radiation of window, essential element of cooling load increasing in summer calculated. Furthermore window designing will be occurred by these simulations. So for the future works the user can import the glass or other datum of window or shading monument to design more efficiency.

  • Ventilation Requirements for Today's Mechanized Underground Metal

    • Authors: Alper Gonen
      Abstract: Ventilation is a basic part of all underground mine operations. The main objective of underground mine ventilation is to provide sufficient quantities of air to all the working areas. Today, in modern mechanized underground metal mines, diesel-powered mobile equipment is extensively used for high production rates. Ore can be extracted from many production stopes due to the production rate in a mine. Amount of airflow required for an underground mine depends on several factors, including daily production capacity, number of diesel equipment, ambient temperature, mining method, mining depth and airway type. After implementation of Stage IV Emission Standards for nonroad diesel engines, it is getting more complex to determine airflow quantities required for underground mines wherefore reduced diesel emissions. Required amount of airflow for a mine is obtained by ventilation fans and the largest cost aspect in mine ventilation is the power costs of running the ventilation fans which can reach as high as 50 percent of a mine’s entire electrical power cost. The cost of electrical power has increased significantly in recent years and is likely to continue increasing in the future. That is why it is getting more important to determine proper ventilation design for underground metal mines.
