  • Core–Shell and Core–Multi-shell Configurations of the Polyhedra
           According to the Separation of Faces, and their Interlayer Polytopes

    • Authors: Robert C. Meurant
      Abstract: In this paper, again inspired by Critchlow, and Grünbaum & Shephard, I apply the 2.5D cubic schema of polyhedra according to the separation of faces and rhombic schema of faces that I have earlier developed to suggest core–shell and core–multi-shell geometries, using Class II of {2,3,4} symmetry as an exemplary case. These might find application in a variety of fields, particularly in nanoarchitecture. The morphology of polyhedra by symmetry class and inclusion of a null element  recognize that each of the 8 Primary Polyhedra (s) of each class consists of facial polytopes (s) that include 0-dimensional (0-D) vertices (1-gons), and 1-D edges (2-gons), as well as 2-D polygons (n-gons), where only those s that are normal to the axes of symmetry are considered principial. Core–shell configurations are developed for pairs of s that share an edge of the cubic schema, by locating the smaller  within the larger , where both are concentric, of unit edge length, and share coaxial negative (−ve), neutral (ntrl), and positive (+ve) axes; in Class II, these consist of facial, edge, and verticial axes of the cube, respectively. Restricting the pairings to those of the shared edges of the cubic schema that is abstracted from the separation of faces reduces the possible cases in each class from 56 to 12, while ensuring their compatibility. The interlayer formed between inner and outer s can then be partitioned into radial prismatic (), pyramidal (), and truncated pyramidal frustum () (cupola) elements of (0, α β, or 2) frequency/orientation according to the rhombic schema of faces (Fig. 1), where 0 refers to the ;  α β in the −ve and +ve cases refer to facial rotation (truncation), α  being the facial  of frequency n of the polar ( or ), β being that of the quasi-regular (), and in the ntrl case, α β refer to the – orientations of ntrl s; and 2 referring to the 2n double frequency case. Inner vertices project to outer vertices, ntrl edges, or n-gons to form 0-s, ntrl 2-s, or n-s, respectively; inner ntrl edges project to outer ntrl edges or squares to form 2-s or 2-s, respectively; and inner n-gons project to outer n-gons or 2n-gons to form n-s or n-s, respectively, while 2n-gons project to 2n-gons to form n-s. These are all radial, on the main symmetry axes, and together fill the interlayer space. The heights of these elements can be derived from the inradii of the concentric PPs, and importantly, show constant increase by gender and axis of the cubic schema. Core-–multi-shell configurations are developed by abstracting 4 or 3 consecutive sequences of s from the cubic schema, thus utilising the core  and/or outer , respectively, and similarly aligning them coaxially and concentrically; each of the 3 or 2 interlayers thus formed being completely filled by the corresponding , , &  elements. The architectures developed might find application to nanoarchitecture, molecular engineering, biochemistry, protein folding, biomedical scaffolds, catalysts, water filters, crystallography, metamaterials, and deployable space structures, quantum theory, and the structure of empirical space.

  • Archive Documents as Technical and Cultural Instruments

    • Authors: Silvano Tozzo
      Abstract: The object of this analysis is acts and documents produced through activities connected to the management of university building patrimony. Their evaluation as functional instruments - both from the context in which they originate and the conservative phase in which they are destined to when they are no longer effective - passes across some examples extracted from the literature related to archives. Some citations are utilized as a pretext to reflect on what could be defined as the features, or even properties, of the material preserved.

  • Modeling of Dynamic Necking in Bars

    • Authors: Yehuda Partom
      Abstract: Necking of thin bodies (bars, plates) loaded in tension is one form of strain localization in ductile materials that may lead to failure. The phenomenon of necking has been studied extensively, initially for quasistatic loading and then for dynamic loading. Nevertheless, many issues concerning necking are still unclear. Among these are: 1) is necking a random or deterministic process; 2) how does the specimen choose the final neck location; 3) to what extent do perturbations (material or geometrical) influence the neck forming process; and 4) how do various parameters (material, geometrical, loading) influence the final neck location. Here we address these issues using computer simulations with a hydrocode. Among other things we find that: 1) neck formation is a semi deterministic process. Changing one of the parameters monotonously usually moves the final neck location monotonously as well, but there are exceptions; 2) final neck location is sensitive to the radial velocity of the end boundaries, and as this boundary condition is not fully controlled in tests, this may be the reason why neck formation is sometimes regarded as random; and 3) neck formation is insensitive to very small perturbations, but may be influenced by larger perturbations.

  • Control of Ultra-deep Strike-slip Fault Reservoir and Hydrocarbon
           Migration: A Case Study of HD Block in Tarim Basin

    • Authors: Xiangwen Li
      Abstract: The reservoirs in the HD area, Tarim Basin, are strictly controlled by the distribution of faults. On the basis of the latest high-precision three-dimensional seismic data as well as an understanding of the strike-slip fault theoretical model, the structural styles, assembly of major and secondary faults, movement history and relationship between fault activity and hydrocarbon accumulation are determined in the forms of seismic related section illustration and planar appearance. The study shows that the NE-oriented strike-slip faults of the Ordovician was activated from the middle Caledonian period and that the northern part displayed stronger activity than the southern part. This fault belt is the major fault in the study area and serves as the first-order oil source fault. The south-north thrust fault started to move in the early Hercynian and intersected with the main strike-slip faults. Considering the distribution of thrust, this fault acts as the secondary oil source fault. The hydrocarbons in the Ordovician reservoir are predominantly transferred by vertical in situ migration through SSFs and thrust faults. These faults cut deep into the source layer and played a major role in hydrocarbon migration. The NW-trending secondary SSF in the central part of the study area was formed in the middle and late Caledonian. The fault mainly controls the distribution of the reservoir and contributes little to hydrocarbon transfer. Therefore, the hydrocarbon potential around this fault is unfavorable.

  • The Morphology of the Regular & Semi-Regular Polyhedra and Tessellations
           According to the Separation of Facial Polytopes

    • Authors: Robert C. Meurant
      Abstract: In previous work, inspired by Critchlow, and by Grünbaum & Shephard, I proposed an integral 2.5D cubic schema of the regular and semi-regular polyhedra and polygonal tessellations of the plane for each class of symmetry, which could be differentiated into an upper and lower layer of 4 polytopes each, and characterized by corresponding pairs, so that upper polytope always corresponds to lower. I explored the motif of paired two-step sequences of first alternating facial separation and morphological transformation, and second facial morphological transformation and separation, which in the 2D consideration of the 2.5D schema are disposed about the vertical axis, as characterized by the correspondence between the  of the lower and upper squares (diamonds or rhombi). Following intensive research, I here focus on a deeper pattern of morphological transformation of the primary prototypes that is characterized by the separation of one gendered set of the negative (−ve), neutral (ntrl), or positive (+ve) facial polytopes along the Y, Z, & X axes of the cubic schema. As one set of faces separates, the other two sets morph/ project if polar/neutral, through nullregular or quasi-regulardouble facial levels (0α β2) of the rhombic schema or its reflection. Each facial set separates just once: d=01. The cubic schema reveals significant three-fold symmetry by gender. The separation of faces provides an adequate schema for the morphology of the three classes of the regular and semi-regular polyhedra of {2,3,3}, {2,3,4}, and {2,3,5} symmetry, and two classes of polygonal tessellations (tilings) of {2,3,6} and {2,4,4} symmetry.

  • Experimental Build of a Two-Wheeled Inverted Pendulum Mobile Robot

    • Authors: Sherine Antoun; Blake Kohlbrecher
      Abstract: This undergraduate research project describes the construction, autonomous control, and exploration of potential uses of a Two-Wheeled Inverted Pendulum (TWIP) in uncontrolled environments [1]. Initially, the non-functioning physical design is two repurposed wheelchair wheels and motors mounted to a chassis that holds two batteries to power the robot. The goal was to continue with the legacy design, augment the build to the point where the robot is programmable, and potentially add sensors for further applications. Another goal was to learn how to design a safe circuit to power the robot and its controllers. Another objective was to learn about the fundamentals of programming an autonomous robot. This paper describes the experimental research progress and findings. The robot is currently programmable with an Arduino Mega 2560, which controls the wheels with two separate motor controllers. It has a limited footprint and has the potential to carry substantial payloads, which promises to be beneficial in uncontrolled workspaces. The initial research has the robot capable of being programmed to go in a straight line and currently has an MPU 6050 accelerometer and gyro attached to the Arduino, delivers state data used to make accurate turns and sense whether the robot has accelerated too quickly and may be in danger of becoming unbalanced.

  • Acute and Subchronic Toxicity of Forastero Cocoa from Côte
           d'Ivoire

    • Authors: Estelle-Clémence KOUAME; KRA Adou Koffi Mathieu, KOUASSI Konan Armand Marcelin, GNAHOUE Goueh, DJAMAN Allico Joseph
      Abstract: In Côte d'Ivoire, forastero cocoa is used by traditional healers to treat metabolic and chronic diseases like diabetes. This study aims to assess the toxicity of extracts from forastero cocoa. Serial extraction was performed from cocoa powder using ethanol, distilled water and hexane. The phytochemical screening of aqueous and hydroethanolic extracts and crude cocoa powder was carried out using appropriate specific reagents. Acute and subchronic oral toxicity studies were performed in rats according to OECD guidelines 423 and 408. The phytochemical screening reveals the presence of polyterpenes, polyphenols, alkaloids and saponosides in the aqueous, hydroethanolic extracts and crude cocoa powder. Regarding acute toxicity, the LD50 value is higher than 5000 mg/kg body weight. In subchronic toxicity, results show that for all the doses there is a significant increase in the weight of male and female rats. Furthermore, no signs of intoxication or mortality were observed during 90 days. Analysis of hematological and biochemical parameters reveals that there is no significant change in blood parameters values and liver, kidneys and heart serum markers. On the whole, the results show that extracts from forastero cocoa are not toxic.

  • Spreading Effect of Enhanced Blast in Explosives and Propellants

    • Authors: Yehuda Partom
      Abstract: We performed tests on one of our propellants to determine its TNT equivalence. In such tests we detonate a charge of explosive at one end of a propellant cylindrical sample. We use two types of diagnostics: 1) to determine the propellant energy release rate, we wrap it with a thin aluminum shell, and measure the radial velocity of the shell along the propellant sample with velocity interferometers (PDV); and 2) we use commercial blast gauges at a distance of about 10m from the test sample, to determine the blast effect of the propellant (after deducting the blast effect of the driving explosive). We expected the two types of diagnostics to agree with one another, but this has not been the case. From the velocity gauges we see that only the part of the propellant which is near the explosive has fully reacted, and that the extent of this part depends on the size and configuration of the driving explosive. But from the blast diagnostics it seems, that as if the whole propellant has reacted. We’ve seen some sporadic indications in the literature to such an enhanced blast effect from propellants [1-5]. We refer here to such an enhanced blast effect as a spreading effect. We claim, that when a reacting propellant (or explosive) is spread out in space (without changing its total energy release upon reacting), the blast effect at a given distance is enhanced substantially compared to the same energy yield without spreading. In our tests, the relative amount of reacted propellant decreases substantially with distance from the initiating explosive, but because it does not react in a continuous fashion, there is a spreading effect, that enhances the level of air blast substantially. To demonstrate the action of the spreading effect, we make 1D simulations of outgoing detonations of an HB (H=HMX, B=Binder) explosive in spherical symmetry. For different runs we dilute the explosive with the binder to various extents, from W=1 (pure explosive) to W=0.01 (1% explosive). For each such formulation we compute the detonation parameters using our in-house chemical equilibrium code (not presented here). For each formulation we adjust the explosive radius so that the total detonation energy stays the same. For all runs we monitor the rigid boundary reflected pressure (pr) of the created blast wave in air, at a radial distance of 12m. We get that as W decreases below 0.5, the total amount of HMX decreases below 6% of the amount for pure HMX, but pr increases by about 12% relative to that of pure HMX. We attribute this enhanced blast effect to the spreading of the explosive, while keeping the amount of energy released unchanged (spreading effect).

  • Synthesis, Characterization and Antibacterial Mechanism of Action of
           (Fluoro) Quinolones: An Overview

    • Authors: Blaise DACKOUO
      Abstract: Quinolones are used to treat bacterial infections. Given their good tolerance and demonstrated activity, fluoroquinolones are widely prescribed. This wide use has unfortunately led to bacterial resistance increase. Many efforts have been made to develop new fluoroquinolone antibiotics. However, new and more effective derivatives need to be investigated. This is an overview of studies done these last decades, on fluoroquinolone synthesis, their characterization and their mechanism of actions.

  • Stochastic Modelling of Spatial Variability of Petrophysical Properties of
           Zingo Field Niger Delta Basin Nigeria

    • Authors: T. Y. Agbagie; R. U. Ideozu, F. I. Chiazor
      Abstract: This research is focused on the, stochastic modeling of spatial variability of petrophysical properties in reservoir sands in thirteen oil wells of Zingo Field, Niger Delta Basin, Nigeria. Petrophysical properties of the reservoirs sands was generated using well logs, Archie’s equation with Pickett plot and Timur (1968) version of Wyllie and Rose empirical equation. Fault sticks and pillar gridding were used to delineate structural features and generate top surfaces as interpreted horizons on the seismic sections. Results from the stochastic modeling shows that the reservoirs exhibit very good qualities with 17% and 15% volume of shale, 27% and 26% total porosity, 458mD and 565mD permeability for reservoirs C5000 and C6000 respectively. Reservoir C5000 main structures are dipping NE-SW and consists of interpreted major NW-SE fault and other faults trending NE-SW. The research shows that an understanding and properly capturing the reservoir geometry, quality and distribution is important in estimating in place hydrocarbon volumes.

  • Understanding the So Called “Anomalous Thermal Strengthening” of
           Elastic Precursor Decay Tests

    • Authors: Yehuda Partom
      Abstract: Some time ago a Russian shock physics group performed planar impact tests on thin metal targets (1mm or less) at different temperatures. They were able to observe the elastic precursor wave amplitudes at different target thicknesses and for different target temperatures. They concluded from the test results that the elastic precursor wave decay rate was lower for higher test temperatures, or as they phrased it, dynamic strength increases with temperature. Such a behavior is counter intuitive, as we are used to believe from our experience with quasistatic viscoplastic response, that strength should decrease with temperature. Accordingly, these results of the Russian group were referred to by them as "Anomalous Thermal Strengthening". Our purpose here is to reproduce such test results using a hydrocode. To this end we do the following: 1) we change the way our hydrocode computes dynamic viscoplastic response, from the usually used radial return approach to the more appropriate overstress approach; 2) we compute a planar impact example and reproduce an elastic precursor decay behavior; 3) we show how the quasistatic part of the response can be separated from dynamic part; and 4) we make the quasistatic and the dynamic response parts depend separately on temperature, and in this way we’re able to reproduce the elastic precursor wave increase with temperature, as observed in the above mentioned tests.

  • Constructing and Evaluating the Features of Novelty Yarn Made from Denim
           Cut Waste

    • Authors: MD ALIMUR REZA
      Abstract: By turning the apparel industry denim cut waste into mélange yarn, the study aims to help the sector get toward zero waste. It is crucial to create already-available manufacturing techniques that are more environmentally friendly. Being conscious of environmental issues, it is a rapidly expanding section of the fashion industry. The major issue facing the enormous denim business is caused by vast amounts of secondhand waste, unsalable stock, and denim waste that needs to be treated from scratch. In order to prepare cotton for the production of recycled cotton yarns, recycled cotton fiber was first extracted from denim cut waste using mechanical procedures (sorting & opening - extraction of fiber, sliver development, drawing, roving, spinning). The fiber was dyed without going through the dyeing process, and recycled cotton was used to create the yarn. The yarn underwent tests to determine its strength (153 lb./lea, TPI 17, count 8 Ne), applicability as a raw material for clothing, and more. According to other findings, it is a high-quality complete yarn because mélange yarn, for various ratios, Because there is no blending of two different fibers, 100% cotton yarn has produced the best results. This method of recovering denim cut waste in the textile manufacturing sector today is efficient and sustainable.

  • Clothing thermal insulation of infant in stroller relating to evaluation
           of thermal environment of infant

    • Authors: Yoshihito Kurazumi
      Abstract: The clothing thermal insulation for individual clothing ensembles of infant and strollers has been clarified. However, the clothing thermal insulation for the combination of them has not been measured at all. The purpose of this study is to examine the typical values of human factors such as the clothing area factor and clothing thermal insulation of an infant in a stroller. As typical clothing ensembles, seasonal combinations of infant clothing with a stroller were selected. The stroller was treated as part of the infant’s clothing. The clothing area factors were measured by using the photographic method. The clothing thermal insulations were measured by using an infant’s thermal manikin. The typical clothing area factor of an infant in a stroller is 3.67 for summer clothing, 3.75 for mid-season clothing, and 4.19 for winter clothing. The typical clothing thermal insulation of an infant in a stroller is 1.23 clo for summer, 1.39 clo for mid-season, and 1.97 clo for winter. The stroller was shown to significantly affect the body heat balance between the infant and the thermal environment.

  • Monitoring the Variability of the Pollutant Level in Urban Water Front
           during Dry and Wet Seasons

    • Authors: Adekunle ATTA; Tuebi Benson Tegu, Tuebi Benson Tegu, Raymond Alex Ekemube, Sure Olusegun Ebenezer
      Abstract: The variability of the physicochemical properties of River water during the dry season (DS) and rainy season (RS) were carried out using Bonny Water Front Creek (BWFC) as case study. The levels of physicochemical properties including: pH, temperature (T), electrical conductivity (EC), turbidity, salinity, biochemical oxygen demand (BOD), chemical oxygen demand (COD), dissolved oxygen (DO), total dissolved solids (TDS), salinity, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH), iron (Fe), lead (Pb), chromium (Cr) and mercury (Hg), vanadium (V), magnesium (Mg), cadmium (Cd), and nickel (Ni) were analyzed. Water samples were collected along the coastal line in the direction of flow of the water at intervals of 10m from the pollution source up to 100 meters on the water surface with the aid of boat moving from the upstream to downstream in the direction of water flow. The experimental results showed the average concentration of pH (7.52), EC (22355.00µs/cm), T(30.14OC), turbidity (11.64NTU), Salinity (18.91mg/l), B0D(18.07mg/l), COD (55.10mg/l), DO (4.29mg/l), TDS (16.26mg/l), The pH values were within acceptable range, EC, turbidity, TDS, and salinity were above WHO acceptable limit of 1000s/cm, 5NTU, 24-28, N/S, respectively. Also, BOD and COD concentration equally indicated that the Creeks were polluted. Similarly, the concentrations of some heavy metals in the creeks during both seasons were higher than limits given by World Health Organization for river water. Therefore, suggesting for continuous assessment and remedial techniques or treatment process must be applied to ascertain pollutant levels in the creeks to inhabit aquatic life.

  • Efficacy of Selected Medicinal Plants of Kaya Kauma and Kaya Tsolokero
           Against Bacterial Diseases

    • Authors: Jolly Rajat; Joyce Mnyazi Jefwa, Joseph Mghalu Mwafaida
      Abstract: An ethnobotanical study was carried out in the sacred Kaya forests of Kauma and Tsolokero in Kilifi County in Kenya. Ethnobotanical data on useful and medicinal plants was collected. Communities living around these two forests basically depend on the diversity of flora for their livelihoods. The local herbalists use indigenous trees and shrubs to treat a variety of diseases. These skills have been passed down through generations. In this study, a survey was carried out in twenty-six villages around Kaya Kauma (18) and Kaya Tsolokero (8). The population was interviewed for knowledge on medicinal plants. More emphasis was put on the Traditional herbal practitioners (THPs) possess more information on herbal plants, their preparation and prescription for ailments they reportedly treat. Preliminary reports indicated that most commonly treated ailments were caused by bacteria, fungi and viruses in that order. Based on this, Eleven (11) medicinal plants recommended for bacteria-related ailments were selected and tested in the laboratory to validate their efficacy against Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus aureus. Suspensions of S. aureus and E.coli were prepared form 24h fresh colonies and diluted to x10-7 cfu/ml where 100µl of each were plated to dry on 9cm plates filled with King B media. A protocol adopted from the THPs was used to prepare medicinal plant formulations from the selected plants. The plant materials were subjected to soaking, boiling or roasting as recommended and finally formulated in SDW at 1:1 (Wt/Vol). About 40µl of the plant formulations diluted at x10-1, x10-2 and x10-3 and SDW as control treatment were loaded on sterile paper plugs, allowed to air dry in a laminar flow before placing them equi-distantly at 4 cm radius on the inoculated King B media plates. More than (64%) of tested plants suppressed the growth of either S. aureus or E.coli while 4 (>30%) suppressed both test bacteria. In total, 91 medicinal plants were mentioned by communities in Kaya Kauma (48) and Tsolokero (43). THPs from the two forest commonly treated ailments caused by bacteria, fungi and viruses in that order. The bioassay tests in this study validated the potency of more than 75% of the recommended medicinal plants that treated bacterial infections. Concentrations used in the study were far below what is recommended by THPs which raises concerns of possibilities of over prescriptions. There is need therefore to regularize and standardize products from this fast-growing industry.
