METHODOLOGY FOR HURRICANE DAMAGE ESTIMATION TO GLAZING SYSTEM TOWARDS PROBABILISTIC LOSS ASSESSMENT

Introduction: Building facades are highly vulnerable to wind and wind-borne debris during hurricanes and tornados. Damage to the facade often results in a catastrophic breach of the building envelope, resulting in costly damage to the interior. Laminated glazing has been widely used in architectural applications, not only because of its impact resistance, but also because […]

IMPROVING WAYFINDING THROUGH DESIGN IN PROPOSED PAEDIATRIC HOSPITAL, KADUNA

1.0 INTRODUCTION 1.1 Background of the Study Wayfinding was first used by Lynch (1960) where he referred to maps, street numbers, and directional signs etc. as “way-finding” devices. His work, which is seen by many as being important in how we understand environments, was based on the concept of spatial orientation and its prerequisite cognitive

EFFECT OF FACTORY LAYOUT ON ORGANIZATIONAL SAFETY PROGRAMMES

Abstract Factory layout of any industry must be effective in flow of workers and material. This is necessary for a smooth manufacturing process. Factory layout is effective if the output from the layout is realized at a minimum possible cost with little or no industrial accident. In this study, an assessment was carried out on

EVALUATION OF THE CHOLINERGIC EFFECTS OF BDF – 8503 ON THE GUINEA PIG ILEUM

Introduction Imidazoline binding sites (IBs) are widelydistributed in the central (CNS) and peripheral nervous systems (PNS) of mammaliancells.1 Three IB sub types have been proposed:I1, I2, I3.2-4Among them, only I1subtype has been effectively characterized.5I2-IB sub type,originally described as the Imidazoline-Guanidinium Receptive Site (IGRS) and characterized by idazoxan binding,6has been identified as allosteric binding site on

EVALUATION OF POSSIBLE CHOLINERGIC (VAGAL) EFFECTS OF THE ANTI-HYPERTENSIVE DRUGS – PRAZOSIN AND ATENOLOL IN HEALTHY MALE VOLUNTEERS

In a prospective, randomized, double-blind, cross-over, placebo-controlled study (The GENRES Study), 208 moderately hypertensive Finnish men (aged 35 to 60 years) were treated for 4 weeks with antihypertensive drugs from four different classes: amlodipine (5 mg), bisoprolol (5 mg), hydrochlorothiazide (25 mg), or losartan (50 mg) daily. Each individual received each of the four monotherapies

EFFECTS OF KARGASOK TEA ON BLOOD PRESSURE OF NORMOTENSIVE MAN

Recently BP measurement was added to the regular check-up at high schools and universities in Japan, and the results of this initiative indicated that up to 20% of young subjects have elevated BP (2,3). Follow-up studies have suggested that BP elevation at the school check-up is closely associated with the onset of EH and/or EH-related
