  • Flood Frequency Analysis at Hadejia River in Hadejia –
           Jama’are River Basin, Nigeria

    • Authors: Usman Abdullahi Ibrahim, Sunday Gashi Yadima, Abdulhamid Nur Alkali
      Abstract: The maximum annual streamflow data of River Hadejia gauging station obtained from the Hadejia Jama’are Komadugu TrustFund, Damaturu for the period of 1963 to 2014 were subjected to flood frequency analysis. Three probability distribution functions; Extreme Value Type 1 (EV-1), Lognormal (LN), and Log Pearson Type III (LP III) were used for the analysis. The models were used to predict and compare corresponding flood discharge estimates at 2, 5, 10, 25, 50, 100 and 200 years return periods. The results for EV-1, LN and LP III at 200 years return period indicated predicted discharge values of 157.419, 169.43 and 135.21 respectively. From the results, lognormal distribution model gives higher flood discharge estimates and therefore it is recommended to be utilized for safe design. Keywords: Flood frequency, probability distribution, quantile, recurrence interval, discharge.

  • Parametric Study on Settlement of Isolated Footings

    • Authors: Pavan Parashram Belgaonkar
      Abstract: Foundation is defined as that part of the structure which transfers the load from superstructure to the soil. When the soil is loaded by weight of the structure built on it, due to its compressibility soil compacts & the settlement of foundations occurs. Present study is focused out to determine the effect of various parameters affecting settlement of the foundation. A 4-storied building is considered for settlement calculation. The building is modeled & analyzed in E-TABS software to get final load acting on the footings. The minimum depth of the foundation ( ) & the sizes of the footings were computed for isolated footings. For settlement calculations 3 types of soils were considered i.e. Dense Sand, Stiff Clay & Gravely Soils. The parameters were varied for these soil types & the settlements for depths lesser than minimum depth of foundation & greater than minimum depth of foundation are calculated. Further the settlements are also computed using SAFE software. The E-TABS analyzed file is being imported to SAFE software & the settlement were tabulated. Based on these analysis & calculations, the effects of Elastic Modulus of soil (E), Shape of foundation & Depth of foundation ) in all three soils were observed. Keywords: Superstructure, Compressibility, Dense Sand, Stiff Clay, Gravely Soils, SAFE, E-TABS.

  • Likert Scale Development: Construction and Evaluation of Home Environment

    • Authors: Mukhtar Ahmad Wani
      Abstract: This paper is based on the construction and evaluation of home environment scale for senior secondary school students. In this paper an attempt was made to evaluate validity, reliability and to determine the appropriate standards to interpret the results of home environment scale. The scale includes 71 items to measure ten dimensions of home environment. Content validity was evaluated by more than 20 experts and validity was calculated by correlation between the score of each dimension and total score of the scale. To know the discrimination validity for each dimension of the test, ‘t’ test for two independent samples was used (high group and low group). The reliability of the scale was tested by calculating Alpha Coefficients. Overall it is concluded that the scale has good construct and discrimination validity. Moreover, all the values of reliability coefficient for each dimension are highly significant. Keywords: Construction. Evaluation, Home Environment, Likert Scale, Reliability, Validity

  • Incompatibility between Design and Construction in Building Construction

    • Authors: Muhammad Yousaf, Ahmad Bilal khattak
      Abstract: Building construction projects are started with the ambition to transform the customer requirements into best serving products requiring minimum alterations or additions during the course of construction. However, requirements defined during the design phase change during construction phase (Alarcon et at. 1998). These changes cause incompatibilities between the design and construction phases. The most common changes or incompatibilities are made in the architectural details, structural details, materials and quality. The result of these changes is rework (Undurrage 1996), change orders, construction delays, cost over-runs, etc. Situations like these cause reduction in investment and potential growth of the building construction. Keeping in view the importance of the building construction and consequences of incompatibilities as explained above, it was decided to carry out a research in this field to study the causes of incompatibilities and their ranking in the building construction industry of Pakistan. This study included feedback in the form of questionnaire survey from two hundred and eighty one (281) respondents including clients, consultants and contractors connected with building construction constructed using the traditional procurement method, In addition, many of them have past experience of working in other parts of the country. From a detailed study of past literature review of international studies, a list of sixty five (65) causes of incompatibilities were outlined which were further grouped in four (04) categories. After obtaining data from the field survey, reliability test of data was conducted in order to confirm the authenticity of the field data. Next the individual ranking of each cause was ascertained using Relative Importance Index for clients, consultants and contractors. Overall ranking for each category was also calculated. Percentage mutual agreement between the three stake holders was also established in order to know the degree of agreement in their views about the causes of incompatibilities.

  • Water Quality Status of Lake Tana, Ethiopia

    • Authors: Yirga Kebede Wondim
      Abstract: The purpose of this study was to assess the physico-chemical water quality status of Lake Tana at 25 sampling sites from August 2011 to July 2012.A total of 150 water samples from 25 sites on Lake Tana were collected in the period August 2011 to July 2012. Water samples were collected from Lake Tana using acid–washed  polyethylene bottles for chemical analysis(nutrients).In-situ measurements of physical properties were determined using Multi-Maji parameter by dipping the probe about 3-5cm below the water surface. Lake Tana water is slightly alkaline of acceptable pH range (pH range 6.98 to 9.97).The temperature varies between 16.4oc to 31.3 oc. Lake Tana has high turbidity (ranges5.1 to 989 NTU) with high seasonal variation. The electrical Conductivity (EC) value ranges between60 mS/cm to 1000µS/cm. It has low TDS (20 to500mg/l).The alkalinity value varies between21 to 3630mg/l. The total hardness value ranges between 65 mg/l to 5300 mg/l. The nitrate value ranges between 0.003 mg/l to 4.7 mg/l. The nitrite value ranges between not detectable to 3.4 mg/l-N 0 to 3.25mg/l. The ammonia value varies between0 to 6.6mg/l. The phosphate value varies between 1.55 to 15.8mg/l. Trends for the Lake Tana water quality monitoring sites and overall trends for the period between 2011 and 2012 time period, there were generally a mixture of both increasing and decreasing trends for all analyses. There were increasing overall trends for electrical conductivity, ammonia, total alkalinity and total hardness and decreasing overall trends for PH, temperature, turbidity, total dissolved solid, nitrate and nitrite. No trend or stable overall trends for phosphate. Keywords: Lake Tana, physico-chemical properties, water quality, spatial variations, and trends

  • Inventory Analysis of Solid Waste Management in Ikorodu Community

    • Authors: Adeniran; Adetayo Olaniyi, Oyemade, Hezekiah
      Abstract: The challenge of managing solid waste generally in developed countries has shifted from ensuring minimum damage to public health and environment to the manner in which discarded resources are to be handled such that future generations are not deprived of its value. Statistics reveals that 3.5 billion people (half of the world’s population) are without access to waste management services, and open dumping remains the prevalent waste-disposal method in most developing countries.This study was carried out on the inventory analysis of solid waste disposal and management in Ikorodu community, Lagos State, Nigeria. The study focuses on Odogunyan, Odokekere and Odonla area of Ikorodu community. Structured interviews, personal observation and review of secondary data were used to address the objectives of the study.Primary data were collected through interview in the areas which include; Banks around Motor Park, House-holds, Industries, Hospitals, Schools and Market. A total of 200 respondents were sampled.At critical region 0.05, Chi square was used to analyze the hypothesis. And the null hypothesis was rejected. The alternate or research hypothesis was accepted. Hence, there is a statistical significant relationship between education of respondent and their knowledge of waste management in Ikorodu community. Keywords: Inventory, Waste, Solid Waste, Waste Management and Ikorodu.

  • An Evaluation of the Spatiotemporal Variation in the Degree of Saturation
           of Traffic at Signalised Roundabouts in a Typical Nigerian City

    • Authors: O.A. Oni, O.O. Fagbohun
      Abstract: The degrees of saturation of traffic at the approaches to the two major signalised junctions, Fajuyi Roundabout, and Matthew Roundabout at Ado Ekiti, Nigeria, which are spaced at approximately 500m, were determined for the weekdays and weekend. In general, the results showed morning peaks at 7am-9am, evening peaks at 3pm-6pm and inter-peaks between these periods, especially around noon during weekdays at the roundabouts. There were mainly low-value peaks at 7am-9am and 3pm-5pm respectively on Saturday while the values on Sunday were mainly uniform; and the lowest. The most significant differences in the traffic flow at the two junctions were the congestion being experienced at Irona Street approach of Matthew Roundabout during weekdays, and the high degree of saturation of traffic between 12noon-5pm at the Ijigbo Street approach of the roundabout on Sunday. Even with this, there was relative similarity in the temporal variation of the degree of saturation of traffic at the two roundabouts, which was attributed to the similarity in their location, and thus traffic flow, as both are sited at the city centre. Other contributory factors include the short spacing and comparable land-use. Keywords: degree of saturation, signalised roundabout, traffic control lights, congestion, traffic stream

  • Assessment of the Use of Solid Concrete and Interlocking Stones in the
           Construction of Walkways in a Tertiary Institution

    • Authors: Aghimien; Emmanuel Imuetinyan, Aghimien, Douglas Omoregie, Awodele, Imoleayo Abraham
      Abstract: Over the years solid concrete and interlocking stones have gained popularity in the construction of walkways due to their immense benefits. This study therefore assessed their usage in the construction of walkways in a tertiary institution, using the Federal University of Technology, Akure as a case study. The study, through the review of documentary evidence, personal observation and interview, assessed the level of usage of these materials within the institution, the present condition of these walkways, factors influencing the usage of these materials and the factors affecting their present conditions. The study revealed that the use of solid concrete for walkway construction is gradually fading away as most of the walkways newly constructed are done with the use of interlocking stones. This is as a result of the need for beautification and the need to meet up with present trend. The major defects associated with solid concrete walkways within the institution are cracks and breakages while that of interlocking stones are presence of vegetative growth in between voids, removal of interlocking stones and undulating walkways. The major factors responsible for these defects include; adverse weather condition, poor construction, poor usage and poor maintenance. The study therefore recommend adequate maintenance, use of underground drains beneath sub soil to allow proper draining of absorbed water, shading of concrete walkways through use of light weight covering and proper filling and compaction of sub-base to avoid underground settlement. Keywords: Construction, Interlocking stone, Pavers, Solid concrete, Walkways.

  • Sources of Anchor Data and Adjustment Amounts in the Valuation of
           Residential Properties

    • Authors: Obinna L Umeh
      Abstract: This paper ascertained how valuers generate anchor data based on past valuations experiences and how adjustments were made on the anchors to obtain capital values of residential properties. From a Total population of 260 registered firms, 164 were located. Yamane’s (1967) formula with 0.05 sampling error was adopted in determining sample size. It was found that sources of anchor and what valuers have been adjusting for varies. Additionally, generating anchor data from local experts was more common than from firms’ records; while general adjustment of anchor for differences in identified attributes has highest adoption rate (92.3%). Previous value experience of subject property is the most common of considered anchor sources. Externally generated anchor ranked higher in use than internally generated anchor; but ranked lower in terms of adjustment. Adjusting without identification of differences in attributes should be avoided to prevent misrepresentation of comparable and loss of clients’ confidence. Keywords: Adjustment, anchor, data, valuation, residential property.

  • An Assessment of the Performance of Traffic Control Signals Installed at a
           Main Junction in Ado Ekiti, Nigeria

    • Authors: O.A. Oni, O.O. Fagbohun
      Abstract: The traffic at one of the major isolated signalised junctions in Ado Ekiti, Nigeria was evaluated. Traffic counts were undertaken from 7am to 7pm on the approaches to the junction over a period of one week. Peak periods of traffic appeared to be 7am-10am and 3pm-6pm respectively. The maximum flow rate for the traffic streams was calculated from the geometric characteristics of the junction and the direction of the streams. Owing to non-marking of the lanes, the degree of saturation on each approach to the junction was calculated from the aggregation of such for the traffic streams. The results show that one of the approaches to the junction was mainly congested throughout the day, and therefore the existing traffic control signals were ineffective for the traffic at the approach. Keywords: traffic control signals, saturation, congestion, traffic stream, demand, capacity

  • Derived Models for the Prediction of Cole’s and Dip Parameters for
           Velocity Gradients Determination in Open Natural Channels

    • Authors: Okon B. Bassey, J. C. Agunwamba
      Abstract: Measurement of vertical velocity in open channel hydraulics is a very reasonable exercise that attracts peculiar results in stream flow. Observations were made on set of values obtained from calibration of models on continuous longitudinal stream flow. They showed that, there emanated effects of eddy currents. The exercise is characterized by downward trend in the velocity gradient resulting in a dip. However, at the early stage of flow development, a stage corresponding to the bed region, where little or no flow occurs, there had been what should be referred to as hypothetic zero flow region. There is vertical relationship between flow pattern developing and the position from the bed and free surface. Local scouring is induced around structural elements such as a bridge pier, an abutment at the lower region eddies and adjourning loose embankment areas. Occurrence is as a result of interaction between turbulent flow and sediment particles at the bed. The entrainment of sediment particles from the bed is probabilistic and definitely dependent upon flow characteristics and strongly influenced by instantaneous shear stresses developed along stream movement. The computed values of Cole's and Dip parameters for vertical velocities estimation were 0.77 and 0.78 respectively. For accurate measurement of vertical velocity profiles, a constant (א) has been introduced in models for velocity gradient determinationא) .) This coefficient has the estimated value of 3.6 - using mathematical iteration methods advanced by Jacobi and Hardy Cross. The proposed models (PIDMWLEL and PIDMWLL) are recommended to be most suitable for predicting velocity profile in open channels, when aspect ratios are greater than five (5) and ten (10). Keywords: Appearance; calibration; channel; flow velocity

  • Price Effect of Climate Change on Vegetable Crops: Evidence from Tigrai,
           Northern Most Ethiopia

    • Authors: Berhe Gebregewergs Hagos
      Abstract: Agriculture economic sector is vital for the main stay of enormous poor people and prime source of food in LDCs yet though negatively impacted by climate change often. That cause production to be low and increase prices thereby affect large staple food consumption to the have-nots more as compared to the rich. The research dealt on the price effect of climate change on vegetables using time series monthly collected data from 2009 to 20015 in Tigrai, Ethiopia. A univariate econometric analysis and finite distributed lag model was employed. As the average temperature increased by 1oC (degree centigrade) in 2009, caused   the price of tomato vegetable in Tigrai to increase almost more than threefold (310 percent) in 2015. Likewise, in the year 2010 (LD) as the temperature increased by 1oC, the average price of tomato increased close to 155 percent, ceteris paribus. Even the price of tomato vegetables increased by around 118 percent in 2011(L2D) because of 1oC increase in the average temperature holding other effects constant. Lastly, in L5D (2013) and L6D (2014) , a 1oC raise in the average temperature in Tigrai caused  close to 58 percent and 23 percent increase in the price of tomato, ceteris paribus.  The price increase in tomato vegetable is higher than that of the price of potato and onion tuber crops. So as to get healthy vegetables often at fair prices both by the poor and rich, applying outstanding climate adaptive strategies is decisive in tuning to the new agenda of 21st Century climate change in many countries of the Globe is recommendable. Keywords: Climate change, Time Series, Vegetables price, Temperature, Consumption, Tigrai.
