Potential of Rainwater harvesting by using different rooftop material in urban areas: A case study[ ]


The water resources are under enormous stress due to increased in agricultural expansion, population rate linked with urban and industrial growth. The gap between water demand and supply is expanding rapidly. In view the importance of water for various aspects, a study is designed to estimate runoff potential of rooftop catchment’s under different rooftop material. It will provide a relationship of rainfall-runoff for better designing of an efficient rainwater harvesting (RWH). It will also give estimate of RWH potential and rainwater quality. The output of this study will help us for effective and efficient rooftop RWH for urban condition.

Implementation Of Railway Crack Detection And Monitoring System[ ]


In this paper problem about a railway analysis is detection of cracks in the structure. Indian railway is the fourth world largest railway network in the world and manual Inspection and detection of cracks on these railways tracks is very tedious process and consumes a lot of time and human resource. A large proportion of derailments and service disruptions are cause by track-related issues. Increases in axle loads, vehicles primary yaw suspension stiffness, wheel-rail iconicity and capacity have resulted in greater damage to the track. This work aims in designing railway track crack detection autonomous vehicle using Microcontroller, ultrasonic Sensors which detects the cracks along its path. Ultrasonic sensor detects the crack and objects and sends this information to the microcontroller and stop the train immediately.

Climate change "Awareness - Action Gap"[ ]


Since the Industrial revolution, the amount of Greenhouse Gas(GHG) in the atmosphere has reached to unprecedented levels primarily due to anthropogenic causes. According to UNWTO - UNEP - WMO (2008), the GHG emissions from tourism industry was estimated to be about 5% of total global emissions and predicted to increase by 2020. Since then, several climate change awareness campaigns were launched to inform about GHG emissions generated by tourists' activities. However, several studies indicated negligible change in tourists decision making and travel behavior.

Customers’ Satisfaction on Technology Adoption: A Study on the Smartphones Usage[ ]


The research studied the Customers’ Satisfaction with information technology (IT) of users’ acceptance. The main anxiety is the users’ understanding of adoption process and use of behavior and it can change human character such as Smartphone. Research question are: 1. what are the key factors that are associated with users’ behavioral intention to adopt and use the Smartphone technology in India? 2. What is the impact of attitude towards using smartphone and experience with new technology to rural area in India? The smartphone has become much more sophisticated and it improved consumer behaviors. This study involves extended with one model; which are Davis, [10]; Davis and Venkatesh [11] proposed the technology acceptance model (TAM). TAM model is one of the most extensively used of behavioral models within all information technology systems. This TAM models system usage intention and behavior as a part of perceived usefulness and perceived ease of use.

Photobioreactors for microalgae cultivation – An Overview[ ]


One of the ways to combat global warming is to substitute the conventional fossil fuels that are used to meet most of the world energy demand with cheaper, cleaner, renewable and therefore sustainable energy (heat, electricity, and transport fuel) sources. Not only can microalgae biomass serve as a sustainable source of energy, it can also serve as food supply for both humans and animals, as raw material for the chemical and pharmaceutical industry, as wastewater treating agent and, as a biological atmospheric carbon dioxide removal (CDR) agent for geoengineering purpose. Since photobioreactors (PBRs) show higher potential for use in the large-scale production of microalgae biomass when compared to the other production systems (raceways or open ponds), this paper focuses on the overview of the different types of PBRs and the design types, the operation principles, advantages, limitations and possible applications.

Techniques Used for Unequally Spaced Grounding Grid Design[ ]


Grounding system (GS) represents one of the most essential items of the power plants and substation systems design. The main objective of power system substation grounding grids is to maintain reliable operation and protect personnel and equipment during fault conditions. For all substations planning, economical and effective GS plays an essential role since the absence of effective grounding grid can result in mal-operation of protective devices and hazardous for operators and substation equipment. Therefore, in this paper, the evolutional technique for unequally spaced grounding grid design is suggested.

Vygotsky: A Dominant Psychologist and His Collected Works[ ]


As philosophy rationally concentrates on all disciplines including psychology, both of these practices imbricate to some extent. That is why, it is said that psychology symbolises an enigmatic and dual characters from the time it was sourced from philosophy in the 19th century. However, the areas to be focused on by these two embodiments are substantially different though the researching territories of these two sectors of science are identical; people and life. While the analysis of philosophy is to focus on the reality and survival of human life, psychology wants to deeply research on human behaviour.

EVALUATION OF RADIO WAVE PROPAGATION THROUGH FOLIAGE IN PARTS OF CALABAR, NIGERIA[ ]


This paper present and compares the degree of propagation loss as radio signals travels through foliage. The propagation loss due to foliage, of CRBC signals transmitted on 519.25MHz was measured and compared with the Weissberger modified exponential decay model and the Early ITU model. The result shows a high correlation between the measured propagation loss and the model’s predictions. The plots of the data obtained from the measurement against the predictions of the models shows a higher correlation between the measured data and the Weissberger predictions.

Risks Associated with Payment Banks and Mobile-Based Money Platforms[ ]


Mobile-based money platforms are considered as one of the determinants of economic development in most developing and under developing countries of the world. The usefulness of payment banks and other mobile-based money platforms could be traced to the fact that it provides easy access to money, ease money sending difficulties, the speed of sending and receiving money, mobile access, and other usefulness (A. G. Cudjoe et al., 2015). However, there are certain risks that are associated with payment banks and mobile-based money platforms that most of the previous authors never write upon.

The Economic Effects of Supply Chain Management on the Automobile Industries in China[ ]


China’s automobile industries had been competitively challenged in recent times. In order to remain competitive relevant in the automobile industries globally, China’s automobile industries had to drive a strategic to channel its automobile production in the right perspective to remain competitive relevant. This led to the launched of a supply chain management by China’s automobile industries. This paper considered the likely positive economic effects of the supply chain management on China’s automobile industries. Firstly, the supply chain tends to open more markets for China’s automotive industries in the ASEAN, EU, and AU regions. Secondly, the supply chain threatens China’s automobile industries control over her local and regional markets from foreign automobile industries as China open their markets for international automobile industries in order to penetrate into foreign automobile markets.
