Evaluation for nutritive values and antioxidant activities of dried seablite (Suaeda maritima)

The aims of these studies were to evaluate nutritive values of dried seablite (Suaeda maritima) and investigate its biological characteristics on health promotion, such as, antioxidant activities. Edible parts were collected, dried with solar stove, determined nutritive values, including proximal analysis of water content, crude protein, crude fat, dietary fiber, total ash content, carbohydrate, total calories,...

Regression analysis of pavement surfaces textures on noise pollution

Noise is one of the physical environmental factors affecting human health in today’s world. Pavement surface texture affects many vehicle and road characteristics; therefore, efforts are needed to develop more advanced techniques for evaluating pavement texture. The selection of an appropriate pavement as the best method to control the main cause of road noise, the sound absorption resulting from contact wheel...

Agriculture germplasm resources: A tool of conserving diversity

Three major physical resources in the world comprise land, water and the biological diversity. Agricultural biodiversity is an important component of biodiversity, which has a more direct link to the well being and livelihood of mankind than other forms of bio¬diversity. In fact, it is one of our most fundamental and essential resources, one that has enabled farming systems to evolve since the birth of agriculture...

Approximate solution to three point bending equation for a simply supported beam

In this work, the authors present an approximate solution to three point bending equation for a simply supported beam of rectangular section. The deflection of the beam due to a perpendicular point – wise load is estimated for high rates of its curvature. After the deformation of the beam, the shape of its cross sectional area is assumed to remain as is. The proposed solution consists of binomial power series and...
