Predicting Tractor Fuel Consumption during Ridging on a Sandy Loam Soil in a Humid Tropical Climate

A predictive model for the determination of optimum fuel consumption of a tractor during ridging operation has been developed. The model development involved field experimentations to determine the various parameters affecting tractor fuel consumption, like draught, speed, depth of cut, soil moisture content, cone index and width of cut. The field investigations were carried out at the farm of Rivers State Agricultural...

Modeling of the Adsorption Isotherm of Pleurotus ostreatus using Guggenheim-Anderson-de Boer (GAB) Equation

Moisture sorption isotherms of Pleurotus ostreatus was determined at three different temperatures (10o C, 30o C and 40o C) and relative humidity (6% - 88%), using standard static gravimetric method. The samples were used to determine the equilibrium moisture content. The data were fitted to the Guggenheim-Anderson-de Boer (G.A.B) equation to describe the moisture adsorption characteristics within the water activity used...

Hybrid Technique For The Waste Water Treatment Using Bio Waste of Tea Plant

The effect of physical, mechanical and multi – step chemical treatments on the adsorptivity of waste of tea (WOT) adsorbent for the removal of 3 multi – heavy metal component from simulated wastewater was evaluated in this study. There are new techniques of (WOT) adsorbents prepared for the adsorption studies, namely physical treatment of (WOT), mechanical treatment of Blended (WOT) and chemical treatment of (WOT) using...

The demand for pure ethanol has become paramount for its various applications in biofuels and preparation of industrial chemicals, food and pharmaceutical products. Pressure Swing Adsorption (PSA) has proven to be an effective process and a more economical method for separating the azeotropic concentration of ethanol-water (95% ethanol, 5% water) than distillation. The modeling of PSA of ethanol-water azeotropic...

Online electronic laboratory notebook: A secured cloud storage system scripted in Hypertext Pre-processor (PHP) programming language

Notebooks in research are an important part in tracking information of both wet and dry analytical data. Paper books or excel sheets remain the most popular and conventional ways of record keeping. To meet these demands, an open source electronic laboratory notebook is developed that can track users research need. Based on the user specifications, this suite is written in Hypertext Pre-processor (PHP) and based on a MySQL...
