  • Some fish species in offshore Fukushima, Japan ability to accumulate a
           specific nuclide (radioisotope)

    • Abstract: The Tokyo Electric Power Companys, Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant in Fukushima-Ken (Fukushima Prefecture), Japan, was destroyed in March 2011 by a massive magnitude 9 earthquake (centred offshore to the northeast of Honshu Island) and by the subsequent historic Tsunami of March 11, 2011. Because of the nuclear meltdown, hydrogen-explosion damage to the buildings that housed the react...

  • Troubled roads: Application of surface geophysics to highway failures of
           the sedimentary terrain (Iruekpen-Ifon Road) of Edo State, Nigeria

    • Abstract: As part of effort to examine the factors responsible for highway failure in the sedimentary terrain, geophysical survey involving Very Low Frequency Electromagnetic (VLF-EM), Schlumberger Vertical Electrical Sounding (VES), and dipole-dipole electrical resistivity techniques were carried out along Iruekpen-Ifon highway. This was aimed at using surface geophysics to characterize and identify ...

  • Thermo-economic study of hybrid cooling tower systems

    • Abstract: In this paper, the effects of ambient temperature and relative humidity on performance of wet, dry, and two combined cooling systems are studied for a typical 250 MW power plant in Hamedan, Iran. Although there have been many works in background of effects of different parameters on performance of cooling towers, there is no detail analysis about different alternatives of hybrid cooling syst...

  • Baryte mineral exploration in parts of the lower Benue Trough, Nigeria

    • Abstract: The use of DC electrical method in baryte mineral exploration has been investigated in Buruku northeast of Markurdi, Nigeria. The objective of the study was to investigate the suitability and potential of electrical resistivity tomography (ERT) combined with vertical electrical sounding (VES) surveys in baryte mineral exploration over known deposits. Results show that the interpreted layer r...

  • Investigation of self-association, optical transition probability and
           hetero-association with chlorogenic acid of nicotinamide using UV-Vis

    • Abstract: The self-association, optical transition probabilities, and hetero-association with chlorogenic acid of nicotinamide were obtained from UV-Vis spectroscopy in aqueous solution at room temperature (293K). The dimerization constant of nicotinamide ( ) was obtained using dimer model by nonlinear curve fitting technique. The hetero-association constant in the system of molecules of nicotinamide ...

  • First principles study of the relative stability and electronic properties
           of the VN/GaN/VN interlayer

    • Abstract: Using first principles total-energy calculations within the framework of density functional theory, the relative stability and the structural and electronic properties of a VN/GaN/VN interlayer in sodium chloride (NaCl), cesium chloride (CsCl), nickel arsenide (NiAs), zinc-blende, and wurtzite structures were studied. The calculations were carried out using a method based on pseudopotential,...

  • Particle model of single bubble sonoluminescence

    • Abstract: The single bubble sonoluminescence is a phenomenon where the vapour or gas bubble trapped in a liquid collapse by emitting light. Sonoluminescence is most often characterized by the formation of an imploding shock and the plasma. However, studies show that in some cases neither an imploding shock nor a plasma has been observed. This study concerns a physical explanation of the Single Bubble ...

  • Natural radioactivity level of clay, ceramic, and stone cooking dishes in
           Saudi Arabia

    • Abstract: Standards and guidelines are needed in the manufacture of household cooking dishes from clay, ceramic, and stone in Saudi Arabia. The radioactivity levels due to the presence of 40K, 232Th, and 226Ra in these materials were determined using gamma spectrometry equipped with high purity germanium (HPGe) detector. The activity concentrations of 226Ra ranged from 5.75 Bq kg1 (Yemen stone sample)...

  • Electrical resistivity and Seebeck coefficient of Pd81Ge19

    • Abstract: We report on the simultaneous measurement of resistivity and Seebeck coefficients in samples of Pd81Ge19 ribbons prepared by the melt spinning technique method and having a typical dimension of 40.0 mm 1.75 mm 0.028 mm. The investigation was performed using a new completely automated device in a large temperature range (from room to 700C). Structural changes, crystallization times and heat...

  • Characterisation of mortars from the Ottoman period in Algiers (Algeria)
           through their physical and chemical properties

    • Abstract: In traditional and historical Algerian architecture, one can find a series of mortars that were used for grouting and coating masonry. Although Algeria has a very rich heritage park, our interest mainly focuses on the mortars used in buildings from the Ottoman period, in Algiers and in particular, the mortars of the Citadel of Algiers, the Casbah and villa Mahieddine. This study allows us to...
