This paper reviews the current status of knowledge regarding liquefaction of soils containing fines based on the theoretical and experiments studies conducted so far. It is well established that the criteria for assessment of liquefaction potential of coarse grained soil is entirely different than that of fine grained soils. However, fine grained soil viz. silt and clays also behave differently which is attributed to their individual plasticity index or the plasticity index of the mixture. It has been found that the liquefaction susceptibility of silts shows a noticeable change in its liquefaction with change in plasticity index. For a PI range of 2-4%, the liquefaction resistance of silt was found to decrease with an increase in plasticity.

Kaduna is one of the foremost cities of growing economic activities in Nigeria. A lot of sand casting businesses whose overall economic importance is noteworthy, has been at various levels of undertaking in the city. The sand-cast products include domestic items such as pots, industrial parts, customized parts etc. The moulding sand is procured in close vicinity to the banks of river Kaduna and used green. A field survey of the cast products shows that they are generally of good and appreciative quality but basic information on the sand usage for optimal profitability with it is not documented. Optimum foundry production cannot be achieved without proper foundry practice and research. In this paper, a laboratory investigation of four critical foundry properties; green strength, dry strength, green permeability, and hardness of unmodified samples of the sand is presented. Its permeability compares favourably with the established practical values required for casting some of the common metals. The hardness of the sand is higher when its moisture content is low. The sand is weak in strength and does not meet the practical value for casting heavy metals. It is however found to be a cheap source of dependable moulding sand that can be easily controlled to yield particular practical foundry requirements for casting different types of metal in the city. The paper is intended to disseminate information on the sand for application interest of any corporate organization, individual, practitioner, researcher, student, and the general public.

Keywords –   Casting, Kaduna river sand, use, desirable properties, profitability.

Polymeric materials containing metal oxide particles constitute a new class of polymer composites materials. Chemical oxidation of aniline is carried out for polyaniline (PANI) and SbO2 inserted PANI (PANI- SbO2) composite material. Varied weight percentage of SbO2 in PANI constitutes different PANI- SbO2 composite materials to know detailed changes. Pure SbO2 and prepared PANI composites were characterized by various characterization tools. Structural changes of SbO2 and composite materials were carried out by X-ray diffraction (XRD) tool, morphological study by Scanning Electron Micrograph (SEM) tool and bonding changes was observed by Infrared (IR) study. Structural, morphology and bonding variation is observed in PANI- SbO2 composite materials compared to pure oxide and PANI samples. Dielectric study of the composite materials is undertaken for its dielectric behavior. The study shows the variation of the dielectric behavior for different weight percentage composite materials

The discovery of association rules has been known to be useful in selective marketing, decision analysis, and business management. An important application area of mining association rules is the market basket analysis, which studies the buying behaviors of customers by searching for sets of items that are frequently purchased together. With the increasing use of the record-based databases whose data is being continuously added, recent important applications have called for the need of incremental mining. In dynamic transaction databases, new transactions are appended and obsolete transactions are discarded as time advances. Several research works have developed feasible algorithms for deriving precise association rules efficiently and effectively in such dynamic databases.

Data mining application in agriculture is relatively a new approach for predicting agricultural crop productivity. This paper provides an expert system about agriculture which helps the farmer to cultivate the crops for high yield and giving awareness about the organic farming. This expert system contains three sections namely training, best combination for cultivation and awareness of organic farming. The training section gives basic needs of agriculture. The second section is about predicting the best combination for high yield in the crop cultivation. The third section gives awareness to farmers about organic farming. This system helps a new farmer to query his clarifications related to agriculture for better yield before cultivation.

This paper deals with the design and implementation of an Integrated Fuzzy Logic Controller (IFLC) for temperature control in greenhouse. The proposed controller employs an architecture that is an integration of Fuzzy logic and PID controller. The controller can handle two inputs, two outputs and 27 fuzzy rules. The PWM outputs were generated to control the temperature according to the set point value.

The recently noticed dipolar nature of convection on either side of Indian Ocean called EQUINOO is subjected to more observations and analysis to understand its effect on ISMR between the period from 1950-2005. The positive phase of EQUINOO with increased cloud on the western side of Indian Ocean accompanied with dominating easterly wind anomaly found to affect ISMR strength positively and the reverse conditions leads to negative results. The floods and droughts go well with EQUINOO incidents but normal monsoon do not display equal uniformity with EQUINOO affect. It is not binding that the positive neither negative phase of this phenomena should show expected results when it co-occur with similar big oceanic or atmospheric oscillations. The ambiguity about the origin of EQUINOO if removed throwing more light into IOD EQUINOO connection and proper parameterization of the issue may perhaps wide open the arena for inclusion of EQUINOO for predictive purposes, model studies and disaster management etc. The work analyze the scenario of ISMR, EQUINOO and ENSO from 1950-2005 and try to understand how it complement and contradict each other and the conditions leading to it. After 1995 the El Nino effect on ISMR has gradually decreased and the paper studies in detail the effect of ENSO on ISMR for long 55 years. The SST, zonal wind and OLR anomalies of individual EQUINOO years are cross checked and their composites are also drawn. The paper also checks the validity of the index used for measuring EQUINOO strength. It emphasizes the necessity of developing an OLR index for better assessment of this oscillation. Zonal wind observation on EQUINOO region during the pre-monsoon month can leave good clue about the performance of forthcoming monsoon season claims the work.
