  • Investigating the Suitability of Selected Structural Material for the
           Blade of an Horizontal Axis Wind Turbine

    • Authors: M. Shuwa, G. M. Ngala, A. M. El-jummah
      Pages: 315 - 324
      Abstract: This work presents a comparative analysis on the structural material of a blade used for the horizontal axis wind turbine, which was based on previously developed blade geometry. Two blades of the same parameter: 0.25 m chord lengths at 8 o angle of attack, but different structural materials were compared. This to identify an optimized blade structural material in terms of locally available, strength, cost effectiveness and environmental safety that will be suitable for Maiduguri’s weather condition. The ultimate flap - and edge - wise deflections and load conditions under minimum blade mass (6.8 kg) are determined. These investigations were carried out in two stages: predictions of the aerodynamic analysis using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) code (ANSYS Fluent CFD commercial tool) with Blade Element Momentum (BEM) theory, Finite Element Method (FEM) coded in MATLAB software for the structural analysis and experimental evaluations for the purpose of validation of predicted data obtained. These were employed in order to provide sufficient conclusions of the aerodynamic and structural data that will provide better performance of the blade. These data are expected to handle the design variables meant for the optimization of the blade based on the selected structural material. The blades of each material were divided into 15 elements along the blade span with each element assumed to have uniform cross sectional area. Pressure distribution within the computational domain and around the airfoil section in two dimensions (2D) was predicted. The validated results of the load to deflection showed good agreement and that each of the blade material were based on the structural strength. From the result obtained, it shows that the aluminium blade structure material has good reliability with better performance. These were significant between the maximum strength and the minimum blade mass for aerodynamic loadings, hence better blade structure than that developed from beach wood and most suitable under an ultimate wind speed of 30 m/s.

  • Experimental evaluation of coated carbide insert on alloy of steel
           materials during high speed turning process

    • Authors: S. A. Lawal, E. A. Ajani, N. A. Namessan, B. I. Ugheoke, E. A. P. Egbe
      Pages: 325 - 335
      Abstract: The present study investigated the effect of coated carbide turning inserts on the surface roughness of AISI 304L austenitic stainless steel, AISI 316L austenitic stainless steel and AISI 1020 low carbon steel workpiece materials. The three steel grade materials were dry-turned using aluminium oxide (Al2O3) duratomic coated inserts at cutting speeds ranging from 1500 – 2000 rpm (229 – 314 m/min), feed rates of 0.25 – 0.75 mm/rev and depth of cut kept constant at 0.5 mm. Surface roughness values at different cutting conditions were measured and analysed. Chips formed at different cutting parameters were collected, classified according to ISO 3685 standards for chip classification and their surface morphology were analysed using optical microscopy. It was observed that feed rate had the greatest influence on surface roughness for the three workpiece materials. Surface finish deteriorated as feed rate increased. The chips formed were generally of the continuous type with built-up-edges.

  • Appraisal of Information Technology Requirements in Quantity Surveying
           Firms in Northern Nigeria

    • Authors: Y. U. Datti
      Pages: 336 - 346
      Abstract: A worrisome trend in the adoption of emerging technologies for competitive advantages and improved productivities by QSs have been observed in that there is overwhelming evidence that there is an increasing usage of IT in quantity surveying firms but little or no noticeable benefits on the practice. It however becomes pertinent to ask then, that despite the increases adoption of computing and telecommunication technologies, why isn’t there any noticeable change due to the impacts of IT in the Nigerian Construction Industry with particular reference to Quantity Surveying practices. The study appraised the requirement of IT in quantity surveying practice in Nigeria. It examined the position of IT in quantity surveying firms in terms of its requirement and analyzed IT requirements-based problem constraining quantity surveying firms. The study is a survey research designed to obtain information on information technology in QS firms. A self-administered questionnaire was employed to quantity surveyors in consulting firms for responses. Responses were returned and analyzed using severity index and later ranked in order of importance. The results indicate a high level of computerization of professional services among the firms with greater number of their computers being networked. However, despite high level of networking of available computers, sharing of printers and other scarce tools/technologies are not established. Compared to developed countries such as Canada, Australia, United Kingdom and USA, the position of IT requirements in QS firms in Nigeria can be said to be at basic level with organization possessing and applying basic IT tools and technologies (e.g. scanners, digital cameras, dvd/cd-rom, general purpose software, QS application software, chat programs etc.) in their daily operation and processes. While most firms are progressing toward intermediate level by possessing intermediate IT tools and technologies (e.g. teleconferencing, DBMS software, mobile data networks, voice output devices etc.) but these technologies are not currently utilized in their operation. Also, advanced technologies (e.g. data conferencing, digital information services, extranet, remote databases, white boarding, voice recognizers etc.) that would make QS firms reap the full benefit of IT and make difference in the industry are hardly available. It is recommended that for the quantity surveying firms in developing countries to maximize their returns on investments on IT, it must go beyond the possession of IT tools to harnessing same to reap the full benefit of technology.

  • Design of a Water Supply Distribution Network Using Epanet 2.0: A Case
           Study of Maiduguri Zone 3, Nigeria

    • Authors: A. N. Alkali, S. G. Yadima, B. Usman, U. A. Ibrahim, A. G. Lawan
      Pages: 347 - 355
      Abstract: Maiduguri Water Supply Scheme designed by its consultants in 1983 has divided the town into five water supply distribution zones. Zone 3 is one of three remaining zones in the city without a distribution network supplied from the Maiduguri water treatment plant. Consequently, residents obtain water from local water vendors, who retrieve the water from shallow boreholes which has proven to be tedious, cost ineffective and physically exhausting. A water supply network was proposed with the aid of EPANET software and the results obtained conformed to the design criteria established by the previous designers of the Scheme. A total water demand, projected for the year 2031 of 420LPS, minimum pressure head of 14.08m and maximum velocity of flow in the pipes of 1.24m/s was obtained. The use of EPANET software has proven to be time saving and its application is especially for the analysis of larger distribution networks is recommended.

  • Development of a Model Fire Detection Algorithm

    • Authors: O. S. Ismail, C. I. Chukwuemeka
      Pages: 356 - 366
      Abstract: An adaptive model algorithm for fire (flickering flame, in the infrared region) detection is presented. The model made use of a Pyro-electric infrared sensor (PIR)/Passive Infrared Detector (PID) for infrared fire detection. Sample analog signals (around flame flicker region) were generated and simulated within the framework of the modeled PIR sensor/PID. A Joint Time Frequency Analysis (JTFA) function, specifically the Discrete Wavelet Transform (DWT) was applied to model the Digital Signal Processing (DSP) of the generated signals. It was implemented as wavelet analyzer filters for “fire” and “non-fire” feature extraction. A Piecewise Modified Artificial Neural Network (PMANN) and the Intraclass Correlation Coefficient (ICC) were employed in the decision rule. The PMANN generated polynomials which analyzed and ‘memorized’ the signals from DSP. The ICC further categorized cases as 'fire' or 'non-fire' by comparing data from the PMANN analyzed. The results show that the model algorithm can be implemented in modern day fire detectors and be used to detect industrial hydrocarbon fires with fewer false alarms than smoke detectors or ultraviolet detectors.

  • Mechanistic Modeling of Water Replenishment Rate of Zeer Refrigerator

    • Authors: B. N. Nwankwojike, O. S. Onwuka, P. T. Anukam, F. I. Abam, H. N. Chilaka
      Pages: 367 - 377
      Abstract: A model for predicting the water replenishment rate of zeer pot refrigerator was developed in this study using mechanistic modeling approach and evaluated at Obowo, Imo State, Nigeria using six fruits, tomatoes, guava, okra, banana, orange and avocado pear. The developed model confirmed zeer pot water replenishment rate as a function of ambient temperature, relative humidity, wind speed, thermal conductivity of the pot materials and sand, density of air and water vapor, permeability coefficient of clay and heat transfer coefficient of water into air, circumferential length, height of pot, geometrical profile of the pot, heat load of the food preserved, heat flow into the device and gradient at which the pot is placed above ground level. Compared to the conventional approach of water replenishment, performance analysis results revealed 44% to 58% water economy when the zeer pot’s water was replenished based on the model’s prediction; while there was no significant difference in the shelf-life of the fruits preserved with both replenishment methods. Application of the developed water replenishment model facilitates optimal water usage in this system, thereby reducing operational cost of zeer pot refrigerator.

  • Impacts of Catfish Effluents on Water Quality Parameters of Majidun
           Stream, South-West, Nigeria

    • Authors: O. E. Omofunmi, A. F. Adisa, S. O. Alegbeleye, A. O. Oloye
      Pages: 378 - 388
      Abstract: There has been a great concern about the level of safety of surface waters, especially in developing countries where there is an exponential increase in water pollution and water-borne diseases. The aim of this study was to assess the effect of catfish pond effluents on water quality of stream water where five catfish farms were located.  Water samples were taken on monthly basis, 20 cm of below water surface from the streams that receive effluents from neighboring fishponds. Water quality indicators like dissolved oxygen, biochemical oxygen demand (BOD5), nitrate, nitrite, water temperature, ammonia and Hydrogen ion Concentration (pH) were examined in the sampled waters in accordance with the American Public Health Association standards. The average values of water quality indicators examined at effluents and non-effluents discharged sites of the stream indicated that water (24.6 ± 0.2, 24.2 ±0.1), (7.29±0.30, 7.30±0.10), (6.90±0.4, 7.07±0.1 mg/l), (0.40±0.04, 0.27±0.01), (3.77±0.26, 2.34±0.16 mg/l), (3.59±0.11, 2.80±0.02 mg/l) and (3.51±0.24, 2.46±0.21 mg/l) at (p≥0.05) respectively for temperature, pH, dissolved oxygen, total ammonia, total nitrogen, total phosphorus, and BODs. They were significant differences (P 0.05) excepts temperature and pH, between values obtained at effluents discharged and non-effluents discharged sites, indicating that improper discharges of catfish pond effluents could resulted into environmental contamination

  • Manipulating E-Mail Server Feedback for Spam Prevention

    • Authors: O. A. Okunade
      Pages: 389 - 397
      Abstract: The cyber criminals who infect machines with bots are not the same as the spammers who rent botnets to distribute their messages. The activities of these spammers account for the majority of spam emails traffic on the internet. Once their botnets and campaigns are identified, it is not enough to keep on filtering the spam emails, it is necessary to deploy techniques that will carry the fight to their end. It is observed that spammers also take into account server feedback (for example to detect and remove non-existent recipients from email address lists). We can take advantage of this observation by returning fake information, thereby poisoning the server feedback on which the spammers rely. The results of this paper show that by sending misleading information to a spammer, it is possible to prevent recipients from receiving subsequent spam emails from that same spammer.

  • Evaluation of Constitutive Conditions for Production of Sorghum Stovers

    • Authors: J. O. Olaoye, E. A. Kudabo
      Pages: 398 - 410
      Abstract: Management of biomass waste is one of the problems faced in rural-urban area of developing countries. Engineering properties of biomass materials need to be evaluated in order to have design data for machines required for densification processes. This study was aimed at evaluating the constitutive conditions of densification of Sorghum stover. Selected physical and chemical properties of Sorghum stover were determined and the effects of constitutive conditions (particle size, moisture content, and pre heating temperature) on such parameters as stress at peak, strain at peak and energy at peak of Sorghum stover were studied. Relationship between process variables for densification process for the stover was established. A fabricated densification rig that consisted of a compression cylinder 32 mm diameter and110 mm height, and piston of 32 mm diameter and 250 mm length, was instrumented on a 300 kN UTM (Testometric SF-300-2041) combined with a temperature heating chamber (SIEMENS TLK-96).  A 33 factorial was used to predict the effects of particle size, temperature and moisture content on the densification process for the stover. Data obtained were statistically analyzed using IBM SPSS Statistics 21 software package. Results showed that Sorghum stover bulk density ranged from 170.000 to 170.267 kg/m3 and crude protein was estimated to be 5.03 %.  Constitutive conditions had significant effects on the constitutive parameters at . Linear regression equations were used to predict the responses of the densification parameters. The fabricated densification rig is recommended for the determination of relevant parameters for other biomass materials.
