  • Effect of Sawdust on the Compressive Strength of Concrete

    • Authors: Anthony Woode, Isaac Agyei-Boakye, Bright Aforla, David Kwame Amoah, Samuel Osei, Akanbi Abu-dil Karimu, Albert Kwadwo Abakah
      Abstract: This study was undertaken to investigate the properties of concrete produced by partial replacement by weight of sand with sawdust generated from different species of wood. The sawdust used in this investigation consist of the wood species, Piptadeniastrum africanum (leguminosae family), Triplochiton scleroxylon (sterculiaceae family) and Celtis mildbraedii, locally known as Dahoma, Wawa and Essa respectively. The addition of sawdust to the concrete was done by 5% increment up to 25% by weight of the fine aggregate. Concrete cubes of size 150mm x150mm x 150mm were prepared after batching and mechanical mixing for the compressive strength tests.  The compressive strength tests were carried out after 28 day curing of the concrete cubes in accordance with BS EN12390-3:2009 series. Sawdust blend concrete from wawa - a lightwood species gave the best result of 5.3 N/mm2 at 28 days. The optimum replacement of sand with sawdust has been found to be 5% for lightwood species. Keywords: Batching, Mechanical mixing, Sawdust, Compressive strength.

  • Bacteriological Quality Assessment of Irrigation Water and Irrigated
           vegetables in Maiduguri, Borno State, Nigeria

    • Authors: BabaganaBukar Kurna, Sunday Gashi Yadima, Bukar Usman
      Abstract: Three water sampling points with their corresponding vegetable production sites along the river Ngada, Maiduguri were selected for the study. A control vegetable production site was also selected. Samples were replicated three times at each sampling points to determine the bacteriological quality of irrigation water and irrigated vegetables using standard methods of analysis. The faecal coliform count for the irrigation water ranged between 6.35 × 103 and 92.1 × 103 cfu/100ml and the faecal coliform count of the irrigated vegetables ranged between 0.02 × 102 and 19.05 × 102 cfu/100g. The results demonstrated that the irrigation water and irrigated vegetables were heavily polluted with faecal material which were above the recommended standard values of less than 1000 feacal coliform/100ml and 1000 faecal coliform/100g set by World Health Organization (W.H.O). The results also showed the presence of Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus Spp, Shigella Spp, Klebsiella, and Salmonella Spp in the irrigation water and irrigated vegetable samples. All these bacteria are of public health significance and their presence indicate feacal contamination. It is recommended that wastewater from Maiduguri main abattoir be treated before discharging into the receiving river Ngada. It is also recommended that irrigated vegetables are washed thoroughly with brine before consumption.

  • Causes of Delays in Highway Construction Projects in Ghana

    • Authors: Bright Aforla, Anthony Woode, David Kwame Amoah
      Abstract: Delays in construction projects are a global phenomenon, causing a multitude of negative effects on the key project participants – clients, consultants, and contractors. The main purpose of this study is to identify the causes of delay of highway construction projects in Ghana to determine the most important to the key project participants. Literature review and semi-structured interviews of 12 key players in the implementation process were conducted. Thirty five possible causes of delay were identified and further grouped into ten categories. A questionnaire survey was conducted on the resulting list of delay causes for the identification of the most important causes of delay. The relative importance of the individual causes were determined and ranked by their Relative Importance Index. The findings revealed that the five most important causes of delay in road construction projects in Ghana are 1) Delay in honouring payment certificates 2) Equipment failure 3) Shortage of materials 4) Poor site management 5) Late delivery of materials on site. It is hoped that the findings of this paper will help project participants to act on critical causes to minimize delay of their projects. Key Words: Highway construction projects, Ghana, Relative Importance Index.

  • Impact of New Large Aircraft on Airport Flexible Pavements

    • Authors: Mohamed Bayoumi, Omar Osman, Ahmed Gadallah
      Abstract: The objective of the study is to evaluate the effects of New Large Aircraft (NLA) on airport flexible pavement in terms of its expected impact on pavement life. The study is conducted using Hurghada Airport air fleet composition at four hypothetical annual departure levels, four standard subgrade strength categories, and introducing NLA at five different percentages. On the basis of the results of this research, it is concluded that, where an airport has a subgrade with CBR values higher than 6%, airport authority may permit the operation of A380 up to an additional 3% of the existing annual departures without losing more than 10 to 30 percent of pavement life. For airports with CBR values less than 6%, a significant reduction in pavement life as high as 40 to 90% should be anticipated in case of introducing the A380 at 3 percent share in the traffic mix or more. In case of subgrade strength CBR less than 6%, there is a high rate of pavement life reduction due to introduction of A380 up to 2% share in the traffic mix. However, there is a low rate of pavement life reduction due to introduction of A380 from 2% and up to 5% share in the traffic mix. Keywords: Airports, New Large Aircraft, NLA, Flexible pavements, A380

  • Assessment of Climate Change Impact on Flood frequency of Bilate River
           Basin, Ethiopia

    • Authors: Demissie Mekonnen
      Abstract: Climate change have different impacts on many sectors among those impacts of climate change on water resources, especially on flood frequency of Bilate Watershed were discussed. The study was conducted to asses climate change impact on flood frequency of Bilate River basin. The input data such as (DEM-90m), soil, land use, meteorological data (precipitation, maximum and minimum temperature, wind speed, sunshine), Hydrological data (stream flow) were obtained from ministry of Water resource, irrigation and energy and national meteorology agency respectively. The obtained data was analyzed by using data analysis technique and the climate data was bias corrected for both temperature and precipitation using power transformation technique and linear regression method respectively and finally preferred as in put for HEC-HMS model to calibrate the stream flow data from the year 1988 to 2003 and validate from 2004 to 2010. The R2 and Nash- Sutcliffe Efficiency (NSE) value for the Watershed were 0.75 and 0.611 for calibration and 0.78 and 0.623 for the validation respectively. Once the calibration was completed HEC-SSP software was used to done flood frequency analysis of the watershed using different type of distributions. The analysis was shows that among different type of distributions log normal and Pearson type (III) distributions are good and that are used to observe the climate change impact on flood frequency of Bilate River basin. Keywords: Climate Change, HEC-HMS Model, RCP data HEC-SSP Software, Bilate River Basin.

  • Diversifying the Use of Molasses Towards Improving the Infrastructure and
           Economy of Kenya

    • Authors: Julius Kibiti M’Ndegwa
      Abstract:    Sugar factories in the sugar belt of Kenya produce a lot of molasses. Sony Sugar factory alone for example, produces about 140,000tonnes of molasses annually. All the sugar factories in Kenya in 2002 milled a total of 5.3million tonnes of sugar cane with molasses production being about 30% of this tonnage. The molasses produced is sold to farmers as animal feed or to distillers and food processing factories. This paper is an analysis of the production of molasses and sugar in four factories in Kenya with an examination of these components and how they contribute to the economy and or infrastructure of the country. The study was conducted through laboratory analysis of cane molasses to establish the components of the molasses that have an impact on quality of road construction soil materials. Data on production was collected from four sugar factories through a questionnaire. The data on sugar production was found necessary because molasses production depend on sugar production. This implies that the higher the sugar production the higher the molasses production. The data also showed a growing trend in annual sugar productions. Consequently this would translate to an increase in molasses production annually. Keywords: Sugar molasses, Laboratory, Expansive soil, Stabilization

  • Assessment of Strand Damage under Combined Degradation Modes

    • Authors: Amal TIJANI, Meryam Meknassi, Hassan Chaffoui, Mohamed El Ghorba
      Abstract: This paper deals with the influence of broken wires and the combination of broken wires and corrosion on the damage of constitutive strands of a wire rope. It was set that the damage is linear with broken wires. In the case of combined damage, after the first stage where it is nearly linear, it becomes more aggressive in the progressive damage stage. The increment from the artificial damage is about 25%. The brutal damage beguines at 4/7 broken wire when damage is combined against a brutal damage limit at 5/7 broken wire for the artificial damage. The critical life time of the strands was established at 55% in the combined damage, at 60% in the artificial damage, and depending on the loading level, from 70% to 85% with the unified theory. Keywords: Wire rope, damage, reliability, corrosion, broken wire.

  • Assessment of Water Supply and Demand of Boditi Town

    • Authors: Hailu Gisha
      Abstract: This study was done to look at the gap between current water supply and demand of Boditi Town and to indicate the future water demand. VENSIM model to assess water supply, water balance method to estimate water loss, geometric growth method for population estimation, numerical criteria ranking method to assess water source option were used in the study. Based on the findings, the averaged current water consumption (L/c/d) of the Town, for public tap users, for private tap users and in-house connection were 14.7, 6.2, 20.4 and 37 respectively and the water supply coverage of the Town was at the level of 74%.The average water loss of the system rated to be 34.4%. The current water production was estimated to be 231,309 m3/year and the projected water demand for 2023 estimated to be 752,263 m3/year. This indicates that, water supply has to be raised by 520,954m3/year. The gap between water supply and demand can be narrowed through demand based supply and supplementing the existing supply with additional sources. Presence of additional water sources to supplement the current supply was indicated by measuring the annual discharges of four not yet unused springs: Seeson, Shaamina, Bolo and Woysha having annual discharges exceeding 80,000 m3/yr, 55,000 m3/yr, 400,000 m3/yr and 30,000 m3/yr respectively. It was identified that the performance of water supply system is low. Compared with Universal Access Plan, disparity between supply and demand should be closed through supplemental water source. Keywords: Water supply, water demand, supply coverage, Boditi Town.

  • People’s Awareness and Perception Level on the Risks of Climate Change
           and Constraints of Their Adaptation Strategies in Mekelle City, Tigray
           Regional State, Ethiopia

    • Authors: Kassa Moges
      Abstract: All over the world Climate change is creating significant environmental, ecological, social and economic threats mainly to the cities of the developing nations. Likely, in Ethiopia, climate change induced risks such as drought, flooding and hot temperature are rapidly increasing and causing adverse effects. Adequate level of community’s awareness and perception about the cause, indicators and impacts of climate change and its adaptation measures to effectively cope climate change related impact is essential. Therefore, the main objective of this journal article was to evaluate the level of people’s awareness and perception on the risks of climate change and the challenges of their adaptation strategies in Mekelle city.  In order to realize this objective, the study employed descriptive type, survey method and mixed approach of research. Primary data were collected using questionnaire, interview, focused group discussion and observation.  The study also used secondary data using literature and document review from secondary sources. Moreover, the data analysis methods utilized in this study were SPSS and Excels through graphs, line graphs, cross tabs, chi-square and simple linear regression to show the trends of temperature and rainfall. Finally the study has identified lower level of awareness and perception on climate change; increased daily temperature; reduced amount and duration of rainfall, increased incidence of disease; drying of wetlands and rivers and fluctuation of rainy season as the major findings. Consequently, the communities confronted with water shortage, heath problem, fuel wood shortage, loss of assets and shortage of food supply. The most common adaptation strategies were planting of seedlings, efficient use of fuel stove and water, agro-forestry practice awareness raising and soil and water conservation. Nevertheless, lack of up-to-date climate change related information, limited adaptation technologies, poverty and financial shortage can be considered as the major constraints of adaptation strategies of the people.
