Determining the Effect of Wood Sawdust and Sand on the Compressive Strength and Water Absorption of Clay Pavers

The purpose of this research is to see how wood sawdust and sand affect clay paver compressive strength and water absorption. The authors mixed cement-stabilized clay with sawdust from various woods (limba or…

Study on Absolute Hardness of Thin Films by Monolayer Model Application

To determine the absolute hardness of a film or coating, the contribution of the substrate must be separated. It is well known that the film thickness and the applied load are the two…

Geo-spatial Study of Farmland Affected by 2020 Flooding of River Rima, Northwestern Nigeria

Flooding of the River Rima is an annual problem that affects farming in the floodplains. This phenomenon results in the loss of farm produce and the widespread devastation of structures in the area,…

Bauxite Mining Industry in Guinea and the Valorization Prospects of the Resulting Residue for Engineering Purposes

Because of the importance and diversity of its natural riches, Guinea is recognised as a geological disaster. Experts, regardless of the grading system, utilise superlatives to highlight the country’s tremendous potential. Guinea has…

Validity of Schaffernak and Casagrande Analytical Solutions for Seepage through a Homogeneous Earth Dam and Comparison with Numerical Solutions Based on the Finite Element Method

Because of its uses in reservoir management, seepage from earth dams is an essential topic to research. The loss of water owing to seepage is a significant concern for hydraulic designers. Water logging,…

Improving Fish Production in a Locally-Designed Aquaculture System

This paper describes a lab-scale recirculating aquaculture system (RAS) that reduces, recycles, and reuses wastewater from fish farms. A biological treatment unit, a settling tank, and a fish tank are all included in…

Investigation of RBF Hyperparameter Variation on Evolutionary Search

A metamodel-assisted evolutionary method is frequently used to address computationally difficult issues in engineering and science. The radial basis functions (RBF), which is based on a hyperparameter, is a widely used metamodel. The…

Study on Nonlinear Internal Model Control Based Neural Networks: An Application to MIMO Non-Square Systems

Internal Model Control (IMC) of discrete under-actuated and over-actuated non-linear systems is the subject of this book chapter. Because of their complexity, non-square systems create a number of challenges in terms of control….

Assessment of a Genetic Algorithm Based Security Constrained Economic Dispatch Approach for LMP Calculation

An effective transmission pricing strategy is essential to handle transmission difficulties and create correct economic signals in restructured power markets. Energy costs might fluctuate across the network due to transmission line restrictions. Generator…

Design of a Low Cost Biomedical Parameter Monitoring System

We created a biological parameter monitoring system using the Node MCU to track body temperature, heart rate, and oxygen saturation level (SpO2) data in this paper. The sensors that detect these signals are…

Industry 4.0: Advances and Applications

The present period of globalisation and resource scarcity has resulted in a dramatic increase in the intensity of competitive manufacturing, driving businesses to meet higher standards with fewer employees and less resources. As…

Intelligent Control in Robotics: Design and Application

In the realm of robotics, this book focuses on the construction of intelligent controllers. These advanced controllers used both conventional and non-convective control methods. Each controller design was given, and the performance of…

Heat Transfer for Engineering Students

Heat transfer is a common occurrence in manufacturing and other aspects of life, therefore specific applications of heat transfer are not difficult to come by. When two systems have a temperature difference, heat…

Determination of Uniformly Loaded Simply Supported Rectangular Plates with Lifting Corners Using Strip Moment Ratio (SMR) Method

This study discusses the application of the SMR to rectangular plates with liftable corners. The problem was solved using the traditional plate bi-harmonic equation for rectangular plates. The load on the plate is…

Complementation of Multi-State System Success to Obtain System Failure and Utilization of Both Boolean Functions in Checking Reliability Expressions

This chapter addresses two important contributions that extend binary reliability techniques to multi-state reliability techniques: (a) the problem of complementation or inversion of the function of system success to that of system failure…
