  • CA-Markov for Predicting Land Use Changes in Tropical Catchment Area: A
           Case Study in Cameron Highland, Malaysia

    • Abstract: The land use/land cover pattern of a region is an outcome of natural and socio-economic factors and the utilization by humans in time and space. The land use/cover change analysis is used to evaluate and monitor land use change in the specific period of time. Nowadays, the rapid changes of land use and land cover can lead to land degradation and environmental problems by anthropogenic activities like agriculture development, deforestation, urbanization and tourism. The study is conducted in Cameron Highland which is the agriculture and recreational area situated in Pahang, Malaysia. It aims to analyze land use change and make the prediction of future land use scenario in this region. In order to detect and evaluate land use changes, supervised classification and image differencing method are applied. Then, Cellular Automata and Markov Chain analysis is employed predict of future land use in study area. The output of study reveals that land use change in study area has changed about 18.95% in 1997-2014 and estimated to change about a further 3.66% in 2014-2020. Additionally, it predicted that open water, mixed agriculture, open land and built up areas will increase by 80.37 (0.54%), 501.02 (12.24%), 499.95 (5.47%) and 119.88 ha (0.85%) in 2020.

  • Distribution Features and Ecological Risk Assessment of Heavy Metals in
           Superficial Sediments of Hulun Lake

    • Abstract: Concentrations, distribution and accumulation of heavy metals in the sediments of Hulun Lake were investigated. The highest value for heavy metals concentration in sediments before the modern industrialization of the world and grade criteria of the National Standard for soil environmental quality were used to analyze the accumulation coefficient and Potential Ecological Risk (PER) coefficients for heavy metal. The PER index for each sample location was also discussed. The method for evaluation PER index presented by Hakanson was applied to assess the ecological risk. The results showed that the distribution of seven kinds of heavy metals content didn’t reveal the regional distributive characteristics and the differential of space distribution was small. However, Zn, Cr and Cu have the same trend, that the concentrations are higher in northeast and southwest parts of Hulun Lake than those at the entrance of lake for Xinkai River, Wuerxun River and Kerulen River. When the highest value for heavy metals concentrations in sediments before the modern industrialization of the world were taken as reference, the accumulating order of these heavy metals is: Pb>Zn>Cd>Cu>As>Cr>Hg and the order of pollution level is Cd>As>Pb>Cu>Hg>Cr>Zn but most of them were in the low risk states. When the grade criteria of the National Standard for Soil Environmental Quality worked as reference, the accumulating order is Cd> Zn > Cu >As>Pb>Cr>Hg and the order of pollution level is Cd>As> Hg >Cu> Pb >Cr>Zn. Cadmium (Cd) was the potential impact element of the ecological environment of Hulun Lake.

           for Cobalt Ion Adsorption from Wastewater on Activated Saudi Clays

    • Abstract: The main objective of this study was to compare a newly developed isotherm model (Saad isotherm model, SIM) with five conventional isotherm models (Langmuir, Freundlich, Langmuir-Freundlich, BET and Toth) for adsorption of cobalt (Co) ion on a specified adsorbent. The Saad isotherm model fitted well the experimental data from three types of activated and non-activated Saudi clays. The Langmuir isotherm model agreed well with the experimental data of Khiber clay and Bahhah clayactivated by H2O2, NaCl and H2O4. While the Frendlich model and Langmuir-Frendlich model fitted well the experimental data of natural Tabbuk clay, activated Tabbuk clay by NaCl and the natural Bahhah clay. In conclusion, the Frendlich model fitted well the experimental data of Tabbuk clay activated by H2O2 and H2O4. Besides, the BET model did not describe the experimental data well of the three types of activated clays.

  • Scheduling Algorithm for Multi-Component Digital Systems to Minimize
           Dynamic Power

    • Abstract: As embedded systems have become wide reaching technology the need for better performance has been persisting. For that researchers have made great effort to come up with new techniques in order to obtain a better performing system that consumes less power. From here, it comes the idea of developing a new scheduling algorithm that manages to achieve components, scheduling in order to reduce dynamic power consumption. The main purpose of that algorithm is to increase the latency of some components whenever it is possible without negatively influencing the dependency constraint. One of the main solutions to increase the latency of components is through decreasing frequency of their clocks. This decrease of the clock frequency brings about reduction in power consumption. To prove its efficiency, the new proposed algorithm has been tested at both levels: Simulation and physical one. In fact, design results have shown significant reduction in dynamic power.

  • Validity and Reliability of Burnout Scale for Malaysian Students

    • Abstract: This study aimed to develop a burnout scale for school students in Malaysia by confirming its validity and reliability. Burnout is a condition in which the students feel an excessive of workload in meeting expectations set by themselves, their parents and the school. This study involved 2,359 school children in Malaysia. This study was to confirm the validity and reliability of the instrument for 9 items burnout scale. Five-point scale items used in this study. The AMOS 18.0 was used for Exploratory Factor Analysis (EFA) and Confirmatory Factor Analysis (CFA) to examine the burnout scale in school. The results showed all criteria of the congruity index have been met. Two factors had emerged with 9 items and were named as student’s Exhaustion (5 items) and Cynicism (4 items). These two factors indicated the reliability of the constructs and the variance value could be accepted. This study successfully produced a burnout scale in the context of school children in Malaysia. Each of the factors can be measured separately depending on the context of the research. The school burnout measurement model can also be a starting point for future study at the school level.

  • 3D Numerical Simulation of Propeller and its Aerodynamic Interference
           Effects on Tail of a Flying Boat

    • Abstract: In this study, considering the complexity of flow and its three dimensional nature, aerodynamic coefficients of a propeller is obtained and the effects of propeller flow on the tail were analyzed by solving Navier-Stokes equations numerically. The results indicated that the position of the propeller toward the tail has to neutralize the torque produced by the propeller as much as possible. At the same time, the lift and drag of the tail have to be in the proper range. The best angle and direction for propeller installation is proposed. Computational fluid dynamics were applied to find the flow about the propeller and the tail and to determine their interaction effects.

  • Closed Loop Controlled Soft Switching Type DC/DC Converter with High
           Efficiency under Variable Load Conditions

    • Abstract: A full bridge DC/DC converter with an auxiliary circuit and a voltage doubler type rectifier is proposed in this study. Due to the auxiliary circuit, the proposed circuit achieves Zero Voltage Switching (ZVS) for main switches and Zero Current Switching (ZCS) for auxiliary switches to provide reduced switching stress and high efficiency. Since there is no output inductor, the voltage across the rectifier diodes can be clamped to the output voltage level and it features a simple structure. The operation of the new converter is explained, analyzed and implemented in MATLAB with 20 kHz switching frequency and 15 W output power. Open loop and closed loop models are presented for input step change and output load regulation.

  • Review on CSR Issues Based on Value Chain Model and its Implications

    • Abstract: Value chain model is usually used to analyze a firm’s business value creation activities so as to propose and implement a more scientific business competition strategy to win in the market. This study however, intends to apply this model to explore the CSR issues faced by each line and staff functional department in a business organization and understand the issues in a systematic way. It concludes that value chain is a more systematic model for analyzing CSR issues of a business organization, any ethical problem along the value chain of a firm is unique itself for a specific function involved but its impact is holistic and may be fatal to the firm as a whole. It implies that the understanding of a firm’s CSR issues based on value chain model is an important foundation for scientifically managing or preventing the related problem. Only when all the CSR issues in each line and staff function have been managed can a firm handle the real challenge of sustainable development.

  • End-to-End Route Reliability in Pervasive Multi-Channel Multi-Radio
           (PMCMR) Scheme for MANETS

    • Abstract: Multi-channel multi radio wireless communications technologies have changed the trend of traditional routing based Quality of Service (QoS) in wireless-mesh networks. This avalanche of growth in multimedia communication is trigged by Multi-Channel Multi-Radio Wireless Mesh Networks (MCMR-WMNs). It is forecasted that in the near future, societal networks will have latest state of the art radio devices with Multi Channel and Multi Radio (MCMR) communication power with enhanced reliability, throughput and self-healing features. Despite of marked improvements in data link layer and physical layer in the IEEE 802.11 standards, optimized throughput, performance and network availability of MCMR wireless mesh networks still depend upon the efficient routing metric or protocol. We carried out a set of experiment and observed that cross layer routing in mesh networks is highly influenced by traffic load, interference between channel and interference between nodes. Proposed scheme used ‘conjugate distribution method’ which was designed to evaluate end-to-end route and communication reliability using posterior distribution function. Routing metric is evaluated based on load aware, intra and inter-interface aware, packet average delivery ration, latency and overhead with considered criteria of average path length. Competitive study revealed that proposed technique is efficient and applicable especial in environment where end-to-end reliability is required.
