DETERMINATION OF CROP COEFFICIENT OF A VARIETY OF MAIZE(ABONTEM MAIZE)

ABSTRACT In a study at KNUST weather station, the crop co-efficient values at initial, development, mid-season, and late season stages of ABONTEM MAIZE (hybrid variety) were determined as 0.42, 0.98, 1.05, and 0.32, respectively. These locally determined values of ABONTEM hybrid maize compared favourably with those recommended by FAO. The corresponding FAO values are 0.4, 0.80, 1.15, and 0.70. The FAO values are average values...

Crude oil components

The Crude Oil Quality Group (COQG) is sponsoring this document as an informational tool to be usedby personnel in the petroleum industry. This document is intended to provide basic information on theeffects that certain crude oil contaminants have on refinery operations. COQG’s goal is for thisdocument to provide beneficial material to all parties involved in the crude oil supply chain - from thewellhead, to pipelines, and to the refinery gate.This initial document is intended to be the fir...

DESIGN OF AN ORANGE COLLECTOR

Equipment development in Ghana to harvest oranges have over the years focused on simple units such as Garden tool, basket style picker etc. and common methods of harvesting oranges in Ghana are the use of manual branch shaking, manual pull with the hook stick. The effects leads to:Infestation of a bacteria called Alicyclobacillus when the fruits fall on the ground.The bacteria lives on the fruit which contaminates it.Bruises through impact on the hard surface.The main aim of this study is to ...

User programmable door lock

ABSTRACTThis project report describes the design and construction of an electronic door lock which uses a microcontroller as the main control unit. The project’s objective was to interface this microcontroller with an LCD, keypad and a DC motor. However, programming the PIC chip to perform a task like identifying an authorised user is also among the objectives of this project. Codes were developed in assembly language, complied, debugged and downloaded to the PIC microcontroller. These code...

Information and Communications Technology (ICT) in Northern Nigeria:

Abstract   The main constraints to the use of information and communications technology (ICT) in Northern Nigeria are identified, argued and related to the setting up of a common computerized system based on the National Bureau of Statistics’ (NBS) report which places mostly northern states at the bottom of the list with exception of Kogi. Examples of existing technologies are given to provide g...

RICE HUSK ASH AS A PARTIAL SUBSTITUE TO CEMENT IN CONCRETE MIX

Nowadays, consumption of rice is increasing that leads to the greater demand in the production of it. After harvesting and shelling, husk remains and comes in great volume. Thus this rice husk is one of the big problems to be considered. Some studies suggested a solution to put rice husk ash as partial substitute to cement in concrete mixing in order to minimize the large quantity of rice husks build up as time goes by. Reinforc...

Ultrasonic Object Detection

Ultrasonic Object Detection ProjectThe main aim of this system is to detect object that will be ahead of ultrasonic transducer. This application is very useful in areas like monitoring and also very useful in wild life photography. There are two main parts of the ultrasonic detector. First one is emitter that produces a 40kHz sound wave. Second one is detector that helps to detect 40kHz sound wave. This signal is then sent back to microcontroller. In this system the ultrasonic module is ...

Behaviour of GFRP strengthened masonry wall panels under base shock vibrations

Masonry structures are prone to extensive damage followed byfailure and collapse when subjected to loads resulting from wind, earthquakeand other natural or man-made events. Recent earthquakes and terrorist actshave clearly demonstrated the need for the development of effective andaffordable strategies for the strengthening of masonry. As a response to thesechallenges, fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) composites are found to offertechnically and economically viable solutions. In the context of ...

3D Antenna simulation

ANTENNA SIMULATION: How to optimize your design.     antenna are virtually everywhere from commercial applications such as smartphone,RFID tags and wireless printers, to deference application such as phased array antennas, to provide integral ground based communication systems. electromagnetic simulation is highly valuable tool in antenna design and platform integration. it provides the designer with the ability to virtually design and evaluate 'what if' scenarios as ...
