Using Sound Mapping in Enhancing the Hearing Conservation Programmes of Geothermal Drilling Activities In Kenya: A Case Of Geothermal Development Company[ ]


Kenya is endowed with 10,000 MWe of geothermal resource spread in 14 potential prospects along the Rift Valley. The government has prioritized geothermal power generation and specially formed The Geothermal Development Company (GDC) in 2008 to drive this agenda. GDC has purchased seven deep drilling rigs that are operated and maintained by a Kenyan crew for drilling geothemal wells. However the geothermal drilling rig has been identified as a high noise hazard workplace, exposing workers to the risk of permanent hearing damage

Cognitive Radio Networks: Defense Against Primary User Emulation Attack (P.U.E.A.)[ ]


The paper discussed about PUEA (primary user emulation attacks) within a cognitive radio network functioning in the white spaces of DTV (digital TV) band. We recommend a consistent digital TV structure assisted by AES that involves an encrypted source signal by AES, produced at the transmitting end of TV and utilized as the sync bits of the data frames for digital TV. By permitting a shared hidden key between the transmitting and receiving end, the source signal could be reproduced at the receiving end and utilized to accomplish correct recognition of the licensed prime operators. Furthermore, while joint with the evaluation on the auto correspondence of the obtained signal, the existence of the harmful invader could be identified correctly with no obligation of presence or absence of the prime operator. We evaluate the efficiency of the recommended method via theoretical assessment as well as simulation illustrations.

EFFECT OF COOLING SCHEME ON OVERALL STIFFNESS AND ULTIMATE STRENGTH OF R.C. BEAMS SUBJECTED TO FIRE[ ]


Reinforced concrete structures may be subjected to fire due to different reasons. Behavior of reinforced concrete exposed to fire depends on its mix proportions and constituents and is determined by complex physicochemical changes caused by fire. Effect of fire elevated temperature on mechanical properties of different RC structural elements (beams, columns, slabs, …etc) depends on many factors; these factors are: element dimensions, fire temperature degree, time of fire exposure, properties of concrete and concrete materials, surface area to volume ratio, reinforcing steel ratio, stress level and type of end constraint of the structural element and finally the used cooling scheme.

Switched Capacitor Inverter for PV Systems[ ]


Renewable energy-based power generation has gained more attention in the recently due to the ever-increasing need for the electrical energy and also due to the pollution caused by burning of fossil fuels for conventional method of power generation. Solar based electrical energy generation is one of the easy and best ways to produce electrical energy. Photovoltaic (PV) panels are used to trap the sun’s radiation and convert them into usable electrical energy. The aim of this paper is to model a power conditioner which works on the principle of switched capacitor (SC) with a single stage inverter and gives an ac sinusoidal wave as output. A hardware prototype of the switched capacitor inverter for standalone operation has been implemented. The SC inverter delivers output voltage corresponding to the input supplied. This converter can be used along with both grids connected and standalone systems. The converter is compact and light in weight. The main advantage of the converter is its reduced THD with increased efficiency.

Awareness about Sickle Cell Disease among General Population in Al-Ahsa, Saudi Arabia[ ]


BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Sickle cell disease (SCD) is one of the most common hereditary hematological disorder. It is estimated that the number of SCD cases in the eastern region were (145 cases/100000) alone. Even though SCD in Saudi Arabia has huge health and socioeconomic burdens on the country especially in the prevalent areas, however, it is a highly preventable disease. Hence, people awareness of the disease and premarital screening are the golden stone in the prevention. Therefore, the aim of the study is to evaluate community knowledge, awareness and attitude toward SCD in Al-Ahsa region of Saudi Arabia.

WOMEN RIGHTS IN ISLAM[ ]


Women rights is the basic principal of Islam, Islamic society paved a very bright way to establish Women rights. Particularly Islam has protected the rights of women, because before Islam there was a great inequality of sex existing in all over the world. Islam not only vanished this Inequality but given a complete code of conduct for the women rights. The great last sermon of the Holy Prophet (S.A.W.W), said that “all the human beings are the off springs of the Adam and are brothers to each other, further he said knowledge is the obligator for every Muslim.

Classification of Three Nigerian Cements Using the Chemical and Physical Properties of the Cements[ ]


The aim of the study was to analyse and classify three major Portland cement products manufactured in Ashaka (ASK), Sokoto (SKO) and WAPCO (WPC) cements companies into different cements types using the international standard method of classification (ASTM). The method involve the use of chemical analysis to determine the chemical constituents of each cement sample from where the major mineral compounds (C3S, C2S, C3A and C4AF) were calculated using Bogue’s mathematical equation. The mineral compositions form the basis for the classification of the cements into different cement types. The results show that ASK cement has the characteristics of cement type II. WPC cement nearly fits cement type III and SKO cement also has the characteristics of cement type II.

Power Quality Improvement In Distribution System Using D-Statcom In Transmission Lines[ ]


A Power quality problem is an occurrence manifested as a nonstandard voltage, current or frequency that results in a failure or a mis-operation of end user equipments. Utility distribution networks, sensitive industrial loads and critical commercial operations suffer from various types of outages and service interruptions which can cost significant financial losses. With the restructuring of power systems and with shifting trend towards distributed and dispersed generation, the issue of power quality is going to take newer dimensions. In developing countries like India, where the variation of power frequency and many such other determinants of power quality are themselves a serious question, it is very vital to take positive steps in this direction. The present work is to identify the prominent concerns in this area and hence the measures that can enhance the quality of the power are recommended.

Proposing a Capability Maturity Model Toward Adopting Cloud Services[ ]


Cloud is increasingly becoming the most sought-after method of service delivery for its ability to provide a rich amount of services that aid businesses in countless ways. From data sharing, data storage, and online applications, the possibilities of the cloud are almost endless. However, a significant number of small and medium enterprises (SME) have not made the jump to the cloud, fearing valid risks like security, privacy, and quality. In this paper, after careful consideration of risks, it was concluded that SMEs need a systematic approach to implementing cloud services as well as a method to assess and improve the implementation. Moreover, the paper looked over a few IT approaches and solutions that aid in deducing a possibly better method of acquiring cloud services. Lastly, a model was proposed which is based on the outsourcing lifecycle model and the capability maturity model integration approach. This model is referred to as cloud capability maturity model integration or CS- CMMI.

Literature Survey: Data-driven Approach for Selection of an Ensemble Model of Profane Words Detection in Social Media[ ]


Strong language is common to most cultures, but what makes the language blasphemous; vary from region to region of the world. In social media, people chat with each other without necessary face-to-face interaction, hence promoting a sense of being liberal without breaking the cultural norms, resulting in an increased in the use of profanity in cyber space. Although most social media platforms have developed profane filters to censor profanity but the cyber bullies have continuously improve on their profanity techniques to make the existing filters less and less effective.
