ESTIMATING SOME MECHANICAL PROPERTIES OF ROCK FROM IN-SITU REBOUND VALUES (A CASE STUDY OF OREKE OPEN PIT QUARRY)

CHAPTER ONE 1.0       INTRODUCTION Rock mechanics engineers design structures built in rock for various purposes, and therefore need to determine the properties and behavior of the rock. The UCS of rocks is one of the important input parameters used in rock engineering projects such as design of underground spaces, rock blasting, drilling, slope stability analysis, excavations […]

DETERMINATION OF POLYCYCLIC AROMATIC HYDROCARBONS IN SOIL SAMPLES AROUND SELECTED ABUAD POWER GENERATORS

Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons refers to a large class of organic compounds which contains two or more fused aromatic rings made up of carbon and hydrogen atoms. PAHs have the following general characteristics common to them; high melting and boiling points, low vapour pressure and very low water solubility which tends to decrease with increasing molecular

UNSTEADY CASSON MHD FLOW DUE TO SHRINKING SURFACE WITH SUCTION AND DISSIPATION

Abstract The present paper is on 2D Casson magnetohydrodynamic flow through exponentially shrinking surface. The set of nonlinear PDEs are established into ODEs by using R-K scheme connected by shooting methodology. Some of the physical quantities are implemented to demonstrate the effects of exponential, Eckert number, Casson and radiation parameters on temperature and velocity distributions.

PREDICTING THE PRICE OF GOLD: A CSPNN-DE MODEL

Abstract Predicting the price of gold is always an attractive area for researchers and predictors willing to define its upcoming value in a more accurate and efficient way. In this study, a Chebyshev Polynomial Neural Network (CSPNN) based predicting model is suggested for the prediction of gold price. Evolutionary approaches like Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO)

SOOT FORMATION CHARACTERISTICS OF HOMOGENEOUS SUPERCRITICAL FUEL SPRAY OF DIESELINE BLEND

Abstract In present experimental work, comparative study between supercritical (SC) spray combustion and normal diesel impinging spray combustion is done at direct injection diesel engine-type operating conditions inside cylindrical constant volume combustion chamber. Ranges of hot surface temperature (623–723 K), cylinder air pressure (20–40 bar) and 200 bar fuel injection pressure are chosen. Commercial diesel fuel is used
