  • Optical and Structure Analysis of ZnO:Al Film

    • Abstract: ZnO and ZnO:Al are wide-bandgap semiconductors which have many applications, mainly as transparent conducting 'lms. Thin films of these compounds were deposited onto glass and silicon substrates by RF magnetron sputtering for the investigation of structural and optical characteristics. The XRD results show that the films present wurtzite structure. The formation of a polycrystalline film having a preferential crystallographic orientation in the plane (002) is observed in the doped samples. The Al incorporated films exhibited optical transmittance above 80% in the visible spectrum and a clear absorption band in the infrared due to free carriers. Additionally, the optical band gap around 3.48 eV is significantly above the values for the intrinsic ZnO (3.25 eV). Photoluminescence (PL) measurements showed a broad emission band in the visible region. In addition, PL emission lines at 3.32 and 3.37 eV showed up in Al incorporated films, and were related to excitonic emissions. The results show that the Burstein-Moss effect plays a central role in determining the optical characteristics of the doped material.
       
  • Development of Electronic Control Circuits for WSN: Towards a Livestock
           Tracking and Identification System

    • Abstract: Botswana’s beef sector contributes 0.3% of the total world beef exports, i.e. US$ 42.4 billion as of the year 2013 and her major market is the European Union (EU). Unfortunately, her failure to comply with the frequently changing European Commission (EC) export regulations on livestock tracking and identification means that beef export to this market is sometimes suspended. Research trends indicate that smart agriculture solutions have gained popularity in agricultural production and can help keep up with the frequently changing EC export regulations especially on active tracking and identification of livestock. It is against this background that this paper presents the development of electronic control circuits for Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) and Group Special Messaging (GSM) to be utilized in a livestock tracking and identification system. It is envisaged that the proposed solution would help fulfill potential changes of EC regulations. Proteus 8 software is used to develop the circuit models. The controller used for this work is Arduino microcontroller. Simulation results show that the XBee shields are able to communicate successfully. This communication forms the basis for the WSN. The results indicate that the developed electronic control circuits for the WSN are viable. Future work will focus on the development of a prototype that will be tested and validated in real environment.
       
  • Failure Mode and Pullout Capacity of Anchor Piles in Clay

    • Abstract: Anchor piles are wildly adopted in mooring systems. However, there are still challenges in predicting the failure mode and pullout capacity of the pile. Previous Finite Element (FE) analysis was all based on the traditional small strain FE analysis. The whole pullout process of the pile cannot be simulated. Hence, the failure mode of the pile is hard to be understood, especially under small loading angles to the horizontal. In addition, theoretical analysis received limited attention in analyzing the failure mode and pullout capacity of anchor piles under inclined loading. In the present work, both Large Deformation Finite Element (LDFE) and theoretical analyses are performed to investigate the failure mode and pullout capacity of anchor piles. The effectiveness of the LDFE analysis is at first verified by model test data. Then, a theoretical method is proposed to predict the Optimal Loading Point (OLP), failure mode and pullout capacity of the pile under inclined loading. Comparative study is also performed between LDFE and theoretical analyses. It is concluded: (1) the proposed theoretical method is effective in predicting the OLP, failure mode and pullout capacity of anchor piles; (2) the OLP is not affected by the length-to-diameter ratio and the failure direction of β>5°, while very sensitive to the soil strength and the loading angle; (3) there is a critical loading angle, below which the pile will be pulled out vertically; and (4) the lateral capacity at the OLP could be more than twice that at the top of the pile.
       
  • Cost-Effective Energy Refurbishment of Health Care Facilities in Heating
           Dominated Climates of Italian Backcountry. The Case Study of the Hospital
           Veneziale of Isernia

    • Abstract: Maximizing energy efficiency within hospitals and healthcare facilities is a major challenge for sustainable development and energy saving objectives. In this study, the case study of the public hospital of Isernia (Italian backcountry city) is proposed, being typical of the hospital building stock developed in reinforced concrete all around Italy in the last 40 years. Starting from deep on-site investigations, based on direct surveys and documents, a transient energy model has been developed and calibrated, in order to reproduce the present scenario. This, in a next phase, has been modified for proposing a multi-target optimization of energy performances, by taking into consideration all main uses (heating, cooling, ventilation, lighting, domestic hot water), by refurbishing the building envelope, active energy systems and providing energy conversion from renewables. The whole energy retrofit, formulated on the basis of a multi-stage optimization problem, resulted technically efficient and economically feasible. Moreover, the peculiarities of the case study and of the method make that investigation repeatable with reference to both studying approach and outcomes.
       
  • The Quality of Transport and Environmental Protection, Part I

    • Abstract: The today main challenge to protect the environment through the development of new and more efficient transportation systems is presented. The absolutely necessary goods distribution and human transfers are polluting and damaging the environment and new solution should be envisaged; the conflicting strategies to adopt new types of environment friendly transportation while maintaining operative the more economically convenient, but largely polluting, already existing machines are discussed and compared. Shipment is an activity that is occurring since the existence of man who felt the need to find ways for him and his goods transportation. Physical human body limits have led to the discovery of a variety of systems for a continuous transportation evolution. This work analyzes the new environment friendly technologies that have been recently developed or that could be further implemented in the next near future. In view of the constantly improvement of the quality of transportation to be carried out, the transportation sector has various aspects that need to be investigated. Passenger comfort, flexible design, maximum interior space, safety and greater range are main features that improve transportation efficiency while making these technologies more familiar and accepted by consumers. Avoiding any excessive generalization, the three major transportation interacting branches, namely, infrastructures, vehicles and management have been reviewed. Such a complex system needed the application of an evolutionary design approach considering renewable energy sources for Hydrogen production as well as electric or internal combustion engines. The overall transportation network and related terminals have been involved as infrastructures, while all aspects of design, construction, operation diagnostics and traffic interactions have been considered for the vehicles. Finally, the management of the engineering responsibilities chain to ensure quality, safety and environmental impact of the transportation systems has been assessed.

  • Recognition of Faces using Efficient Multiscale Local Binary Pattern and
           Kernel Discriminant Analysis in Varying Environment

    • Abstract: Face recognition involves matching face images with different environmental conditions. Matching face images with different environmental conditions is not a easy task. Also matching face images considering variations such as changing illumination, pose, facial expression and that with uncontrolled conditions becomes more difficult. This paper focuses on accurately recognizing face images considering all the above variations. The proposed system is based on collecting features from face images using Multiscale Local Binary pattern (MLBP) with eight orientations out of 59 crucial ones and then finding similarity using a kernel linear discriminant analysis. Literature suggested that MLBP can give up to 256 orientations for a single radius considered around a pixel and its neighborhood. The paper uses only 8 orientations for a single radius and four such radii (1, 3, 5 and 7) are considered around a single pixel with (8x4) 32 histogram features thus reducing the computational complexity. Various face image databases are considered in this paper namely, Labeled Faces in Wild (LFW), Japanese Female Facial Expression (JAFFE), AR and Asian. Results showed that the proposed system correctly identified 9 out of 10 subjects. The proposed system involves preprocessing including alignment and noise reduction using a Gaussian filter, feature extraction using MLBP based histograms and matching based on kernel linear discriminant analysis.
       
  • Denoising Methods for MRI Imagery

    • Abstract: There are several new denoising algorithms that may be useful for magnetic resonance imaging. We compared the performance of some of the latest denoising algorithms with those that have been developed specifically for MRI imagery. We found that the latest approaches show impressive performance in terms of mean squared error, but a measure based on perceptual quality may be needed to determine the best approach.
       
  • Hands-On Fire Extinguisher Training Apparatuses: Expert Evaluations of Two
           Propane Fire Simulators and Air-Pressurized Water Extinguishers

    • Abstract: Twenty-two expert firefighting professionals were used in evaluating four methods for fire extinguisher hands-on training. Two different fire simulators were put into service along with two conditions for the fighting distance; keeping a distance of 2.44 m (8ft.) away from the base of the fire and having no restriction on getting closer to the fire. The fire simulators both utilized burned propane gas and modified air pressurized water extinguishers. Demographics data were gathered at the beginning of the study and participants completed a study form after each study conditions and at the end of the study. The participants are required to provide comments and suggestions as well. Results showed that participants preferred and recommended one simulator over the other for better simulating a real situation. Moreover, the participants reported that keeping a 2.44 m (8ft.) fighting distance is not realistic and maybe questionable as it is counter to proper use of extinguishers. Participants suggests adding smoke, sound and light effects to better simulate a real situation and improve training.
       
  • Performance Evaluation of an Assisting Device for Training "Normal-Like"
           Sit To Stand Movement

    • Abstract: This paper presents a performance evaluation and results on the modelling and simulation of an assisting device to be used as aiding or guiding system for people with reduced mobility. There is a high level of motivation for elderly to perform independently basic Activities of Daily Life (ADL). Therefore, it is of great interest to design and implement reliable assisting devices that are able to help end-users mobility. Sit-To-Stand represent one of the most common ADL and a number of different devices have been proposed to reproduce a "normal-like" movement. In general, a robot for a medical application should be able to interact with a patient in safe conditions, i.e., it must not damage people or surroundings; it must be designed to guarantee high accuracy and low accelerations during the operation. In addition, it should not be too bulky to interact closely with people. It can be advisable to have an easy-in-use and low-cost system, which can be used also in a domestic environment. In this study, a performance evaluation of a Sit-To-Stand assisting device is analyzed in terms of main characteristics, such as kinematic features and actuation requirements. Experimental tests were used to analyze a "normal-like" Sit-To-Stand movement and simulation results have been reported by considering a model of the human body interacting with the proposed assisting device.
       
  • Deuteron Dimensions

    • Abstract: The exact sizes of a Deuteron are extremely important today because deuterons are proposed for use as a raw material for the completion of the merger in the nuclear power station. The work proposes a study in the kinematic and dynamic design of a particle deuteron in motion. Mechanical equations of movement introduced are original and have been already determined for the study of a basic particle located in motion, such as for example the electron. The paper presents all the dimensions of a deuteron in motion, determined with an ultra-high precision depending on its speed of travel. The equation of motion has been deducted and using the theory of the mechanisms and of the classic mechanics because they have been used and moments of mechanical inertia mass of a body when it is in motion.
       
  • Transportation Engineering

    • Abstract: The shipments were absolutely necessary at all times, but still have polluted and damaged the environment. The technique of transport or the engineering of transport is the application of the principles of technology and scientific findings to the planning, design check, operation and plan management for any mode of transport, in order to ensure that the conditions of safety, efficiency, quick, comfortable and convenient, economic and environmentally compatible movement of persons and goods (transport). It is a sub-discipline for civil engineering. The importance of the transport engineering in the framework of the profession of civil engineering can be evaluated by the number of divisions of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), which are directly related to the transport. There are six such divisions (Aerospace; Air Transport, motorways, pipes, watercourses, port, of coastal and ocean and urban transport), which represents one third of the total 18 technical divisions of the ASCE (1987). Humanity is struggling between technological tests of deployment of new types of mild transport for the environment and the need to maintain still in the operation the machines already polluting products in large quantity, cheaper, more convenient economically, that customers have already been accustomed. Transport is at the heart of major cross-cutting issues that are inseparable from issues related to the development and sustainable management of the mobility of goods and people. The automotive sector must meet several challenges to reduce the emission of particulate and gaseous pollutants while limiting the increase in the cost of vehicles. The development of "clean" or "sustainable" vehicles requires the integration of innovative technologies to meet all these requirements. Those all problems need to be addressed by the discipline named Transportation (Transport) Engineering, in view of the constantly improving the quality of transport carried out.
       
  • Some Proposed Solutions to Achieve Nuclear Fusion

    • Abstract: Despite research carried out around the world since the 1950s, no industrial application of fusion to energy production has yet succeeded, apart from nuclear weapons with the H-bomb, since this application does not aims at containing and controlling the reaction produced. There are, however, some other less mediated uses, such as neutron generators. The fusion of light nuclei releases enormous amounts of energy from the attraction between the nucleons due to the strong interaction (nuclear binding energy). Fusion it is with nuclear fission one of the two main types of nuclear reactions applied. The mass of the new atom obtained by the fusion is less than the sum of the masses of the two light atoms. In the process of fusion, part of the mass is transformed into energy in its simplest form: Heat. This loss is explained by the Einstein known formula E = mc2. Unlike nuclear fission, the fusion products themselves (mainly helium 4) are not radioactive, but when the reaction is used to emit fast neutrons, they can transform the nuclei that capture them into isotopes that some of them can be radioactive. In order to be able to start and to be maintained with the success the nuclear fusion reactions, it is first necessary to know all this reactions very well. This means that it is necessary to know both the main reactions that may take place in a nuclear reactor and their sense and effects. The main aim is to choose and coupling the most convenient reactions, forcing by technical means for their production in the reactor. Taking into account that there are a multitude of possible variants, it is necessary to consider in advance the solutions that we consider them optimal. The paper takes into account both variants of nuclear fusion and cold and hot. For each variant will be mentioned the minimum necessary specifications.
       
  • Some Basic Reactions in Nuclear Fusion

    • Abstract: Over time it has advanced the idea that the achievement of a hot nuclear reaction can require tens or hundreds of millions of degrees. Precise calculations clearly indicate a much higher temperature. At least 10 million degrees are necessary for 1 keV in thermonuclear reaction. At 400 keV it needs a temperature of 4000 million degrees to occur the hot fusion reaction. Hot fusion needs a temperature of about 4000 million degrees, or 4 billion degrees if we believe in the calculations the radius of deuterium static. If we believe in the calculations the radius of the real, dynamic deuterium, in movement, the temperature required to achieve the warm fusion reaction increases still 10000 times, reaching a value of 40 trillions degrees. Unfortunately, this clarification does not bring us closer to the realization of the hot fusion reaction, but on the contrary, us away from the day when we will be able to achieve it. Today we have only made 150 million degrees. A huge problem is even the achievement of such temperatures. For these reasons we are entitled to think up next following, namely achieving the cold fusion.
      Authors propose to bomb the fuel with accelerated Deuterium nuclei.
       
  • Effect of Distance of the Submerged Vanes from the Outer Bank on Sediment
           Movement within 180° Bend

    • Abstract: A small aspect ratio of submerged vanes when used near the outer bank at the angle of attack between 10° to 20° and at the initial height above the bed between 20-40% of flow depth is considered one of the most successful river training structures. Vanes when located within the bends of river, produces helical swirls at inverse action with the centrifugally secondary current action. Accordingly, its existence leads to mitigate the influence of the secondary current, thus reducing the outer bank erosion. The present study aims to investigate the effect of distance which measured from the outer bank (δb) on the hydraulic performance of vanes when it arranged at a specified configuration within 180° bend. As a result, when the submerged vanes have been installed at δb/b = 0.25 within the third to the fifth sectors of bend and δb/b = 0.1 within the sixth sector at a zigzag pattern led to lesser outer bank scour with the Percentage Improvement (PI-indicator) equal to 72.71%.
       
  • Implementation Wireless Adapter Interface Module with Gateway Device for
           Connection to 4-20 mA Transmitters

    • Abstract: Wireless communication is emerging technology from the office world to the industrial world. It is important that this technique are applied by the users in industrial environments because the industrial communication underlies stricter conditions than office communication. In this paper, It has been designed and implemented wireless adapter interface module with gateway connected to 4-20 mA devices and the Differential Pressure (DP) transmitter is considered. The implemented system consists from wireless adapter connected to the DP transmitter and the gateway device that used as a link between the field devices and the host. The standard method deals with a two-way or bidirectional communication protocol, which eliminate the drawbacks of 4 to 20 mA standard signal in the industrial measurements that can be only transmitted or measured one parameter value. With developed method, an additional information can be transmitted using wireless signal based on frequency shift keying modulation. In addition, the system design has been implemented and proposed various configurations for field device connections. The experiment results are presenting to verify the success of the implemented system.

  • Fenton Process for the Degradation of Methylene Blue using Different
           Nanostructured Catalysts

    • Abstract: In many places of the world, water is a scarcity resource. The possibility of reusing water increases the relevance of developing different water treatment methods. The goal of this research was to determine if the photo-Fenton processes are efficient for the degradation of organic compounds, as a possible alternative for wastewater treatment. In order to carry out this study, different catalysts were characterized by different techniques (XRD, FE-SEM, SBET and TGA) and catalytic tests. Iron oxide nanowires (Fe2O3NWs) and a commercial catalyst (FeCl2) were tested in the methylene blue photo-Fenton degradation reaction. The catalysts used were able to degrade the methylene blue and could eventually be used to remove contaminants from the water.
       
  • Comparison of Denoising Algorithms for Urban Scenes

    • Abstract: Several new denoising algorithms have recently been presented that display comparable performance and it is unclear which provide the best results. We used the practical example of urban scenes to compare two of the top-performing algorithms. We found that when using the practical case of quantizing input and output imagery, the results were different than when using the conventional method for comparison.
       
  • Discrete Vortex Prediction of Flow around Two Cylinders in Side by Side
           using Simple Grid System

    • Abstract: Modelling of flows around two cylinders in side by side arrangement using a simple overlapping grid system is carried out. The use of such grid system is intended to give a considerable reduction in terms of the CPU time, especially during the calculation of the vortex velocity. It has been shown that this method is not only time efficient, but also gives a better distribution of surface vorticity as the scattered vortices around the cylinder are now concentrated on grid point located at uniform distance from the cylinder. The engineering applications of this topic is to simulate the loading on structural elements due to the presence of anodes. The in-line and transverse force coefficients and the flow patterns obtained are presented in order to provide more detail description of the flow phenomena and interaction involved. The comparison of the results with both experimental and numerical evidence is also presented and the range within which the algorithm produces good results is identified.
       
  • Experimental Investigation of Limonene-based Environmental-Friendly
           Emulsion Drilling Mud

    • Abstract: The use of emulsion drilling mud in the oil and gas industry has gained wide acceptance. However, the disposal of drill cuttings and the waste of such emulsion drilling mud usually poses environmental concern. Hence, there is the need to seek oil from biodegradable sources as an alternative to the current conventional diesel oil which constitute environmental threat. In this study, limonene obtained from dried peel of sweet orange was used as the dispersed phase in the formulation of nano-modified emulsion drilling mud. A Design Of Experiment (DOE) approach was employed to investigate the extraction of limonene and the results analysed. Three different mud samples were formulated; the conventional water-based drilling mud, nano-modified emulsion drilling mud with diesel oil and limonene as the dispersed phase respectively. The rheological properties, density, sand content, PH and filtration loss of the formulated mud samples were tested and compared. The results of the experiment showed that the formulated nano-modified emulsion drilling mud with limonene as the dispersed phase followed Herschel-Bulkley rheological Model with low gel strength and yield point which are desirable mud property for turbulent flow at low pump pressure for effective hole cleaning. Also, there is reduction in filtration loss and mud cake compared to the conventional water-based drilling mud which will lead to reduction in torque and drag, reduction in pipe sticking, reduction in hole enlargement and less bit balling.
       
  • Synthesis and Characterization of Au@TiO2 NWs and their Catalytic Activity
           by Water Splitting: A Comparative Study with Degussa P25

    • Abstract: Different amount of gold nanoparticles (1, 3, 5, 10 wt%) were deposited on the surface of synthesized titanium oxide nanowires (TiO2 NWs) and Degussa P25 (TiO2-P25). The results evidenced the presence of small and dispersed gold particles on the surface of TiO2 NWs and TiO2-P25 and an increase in the specific surface area of all the composites. The photocatalytic activity was characterized by measuring the hydrogen production by water splitting, using UV-vis radiation. Au@TiO2 NWs catalysts showed the highest production of hydrogen (1,436 μmol hg-1), with a gold loading of 10 wt%, while in the case of Au@TiO2-P25 the hydrogen production was slightly lower (800 μmol hg-1), with a gold loading of 5 wt%. The enhancement in the hydrogen production was 11.5 times higher than that reported by the TiO2 NWs catalyst (125 µmol hg-1) and 5.2 times higher than the TiO2-P25 (154 µmol hg-1). The activity of the catalysts was found to be dependent both on the surface area of the composites and on the amount of gold.
       
  • Dynamics of Mechanisms with Cams Illustrated in the Classical Distribution

    • Abstract: The paper presents an original method to determine the general dynamics of rotating cam and lifting, customized to flat-plate mechanism. First, the dynamic cinematic is presented. Then the Lagrange equation is resolved and with an original dynamic model with a degree of freedom with variable internal damping the dynamic analysis of two models is then made. The mechanisms presented, scientifically called rigid memory mechanisms, are mechanical transmissions widely used in the economy for many years. They are widespread in the medical world, being used in various medical devices and in medical engineering, they also meet most of the vehicles mounted on their engines, with internal combustion, as valve distribution mechanisms, in the world of industrial robots, but also in the Of mechanical transmissions. The cam and follower mechanisms have spread the first time they were used in the wars of tissue (automated tissue machines). The distribution mechanisms could not be replaced with other electromechanical systems because they did not have the necessary resistance and reliability.
       
  • Testing by Non-Destructive Control

    • Abstract: This paper describes an application of industrial robots that gain ground mainly in the aerospace industry. It is a TTT manipulator whose task is to automatically position the end-effector, in this case a complex sensor system and a eddy-current probe in the position set by the software application for testing by non-destructive ultrasound control of tickets and bars of titanium, both round and square, or any other transparent ultrasound metal (obviously in a certain range of sizes). For surface control, the effector also includes a Eddy current (Eddy current control system). The installation performs ultrasonic control by the echo boost method in total immersion using as a water coupling medium. This method provides the best coupling for automated control systems. This plant was specially produced for ZIROM S.A. A unique producer of titanium ingots in Romania by the reputed German company Karl Deutch (leader in this field), the founder of the company being also one of the inventors of the non-destructive ultrasonic control method, the part of Eddy current being produced by the German company Prüftechnik. This paper aims to explore the state of the art of non-destructive automatic ultrasonic control techniques according to the possible methods to be adopted, by the applications that demand such methods, by reviewing a series of installations more or less similar to those of Zirom s.a. It is thus found that there are a multitude of pine technical solutions that can be done with an ultrasonic automatic control and precision. In this context, the last chapter of the paper that attempts to probe the possible evolution of the future of US control in this field is of great importance because in the current pace of innovations in all fields, but especially in IT and electronics, the future holds many surprises.
       
  • Electron Dimensions

    • Abstract: In this study, the theoretical principles necessary to determine the exact magnitude of a moving electron, depending on the speed of movement, will be exposed. The equations are specifically discussed to determine the radius R of the moving electron, which refers to the electron movement velocity v and the resting mass m0. The mechanical moment of inertia of a sphere around one of its diameters is determined by the relationship between the total kinetic energy of a moving electron as the sum of the two components (translatable and rotating). Using the theory of Louis de Broglie, which shows impulse preservation, the wavelength (associated with the particle) was calculated. The wave frequency (associated with the moving electron) was determined and the moving electron kinetic energy was estimated by decreasing the total resting energy of the electron from the total energy of the moving electrons.
