Wind Turbine Incident/Complaint Reports in Ontario, Canada: A Review—Why Are They Important?

Carmen M. Krogh, E. Jane Wilson, Mary E. Harrington
Background: The introduction of industrial wind turbines into quiet rural en-vironments in Ontario, Canada has resulted in complaints about environmental noise and adverse health effects. Ontario has a process whereby residents can report noise to government. Official government records of Incident Reports/Complaints submitted by residents living near operating wind turbine installations were obtained through a Freedom of Informat

Effect of Calcium Carbide Waste Powder on Some Engineering Properties of Bamboo Leaf Ash Concrete

Olumuyiwa Samson Aderinola, Olasunkanmi Eniola Omolola, Ajibola Ibrahim Quadri
The assessment of cement partially replaced with calcium carbide waste pow-der, CCWP and bamboo leaf ash, BLA on the strength of concrete made with cement was investigated. Oxide composition analysis of CCWP and BLA con-firm their status as non-pozzolanic material rich in CaO component and poz-zolanic materials, respectively. Setting times, slump, compressive and micro-structure analysis tests were c

Exploring the Utilization of Lesser-Known Species for Furniture Production—A Case Study in the Western Region, Ghana

Job Ewudzie, John Gemadzie, Harold Adjarko
Increased demand for traditional timber species has led to the depletion of large areas of Ghana’s forest cover. Sustainable forest management requires that measures are put in place to minimize forest depletion through the utili-zation of lesser-known species, reforestation, setting margins for annual al-lowable cut, banning export of round logs, conservation of biological diversity and promotion of efficient wood-based industry.

Green Building and Information Model Construction

Fan Zhang, Qiaozhi Sang, Fengzhu Yao
Building Information Modeling (BIM) provides a new design method and new career direction—architectural planning. Building planners generally propose project components and overall ideas based on project proposals and basic design information including: space requirements, space scale, space combination, usage, environmental protection, structural modeling, equipment systems, construction area

On Preliminary Study of Primary and Secondary Elements Affecting Mechanical Properties of Rebar

Qiaozhi Sang, Fengzhu Yao, Ying Zhang
The microalloying method is most widely used in the production process of high strength steel bars. However, its cost factor has become the main bottleneck for its difficult promotion. The incomplete structure of analytic hierarchy model is established in this paper to identify the primary and secondary elements affecting the performance and investigate the influence mechanism. The dominance numbers are e

Comparing Model and Experimental Results of the Volume of Filtrate during Sludge Dewatering

Sheikh Yusuf, Joel Ademiluyi
The results of the experiment of dewatering analysis carried out on a municipal sludge were recorded. Similarly, analytical mathematics was used to develop an equation to calculate volume of filtrate. The two results were plotted in graphs and comparisons were made. The results show very close relationships between the two results. In fact in most cases the two results were almost overlapping. For example after 3, 6, 9, 12, 15 hou

“Flourishing Age No. 2” Internet Radio

Min Jiang
In the days of the May Day vacation, I made 25 “Internet Radio”, designed his own installation. On the basis of the digital simulation theory, I succeeded in making a radio that could listen to more than 2000 radio stations. It should be a national patent. We can listen to more than ten local radio stations and have thousands of network stations ready for each teacher. Sending one is currently

Research on Social Capital Selection of Public-Private-Partnership Project

Yufang Shi, Pingping Song
The way of cooperation between government and social capital is widely used in the field of infrastructure construction. According to relevant data, the social capital participating in PPP (Public Private Partnership) project is divided into three categories, and the strengths and weaknesses are analyzed; the evaluation index system of social capital is constructed from four aspects of financial ability, technical ability, managem

An Agent Based Model to Analyze the Effects of Traffic Signal Timing on Vehicle Throughput in Inclement Weather

Michael Duff, Robert D. McLeod
This preliminary paper discusses the creation of an agent based model for a signalized traffic intersection derived from a previously developed mathematical vehicle-following micro-simulation model. The results of the agent based model are compared to the results from the mathematical model for verification purposes. The agent based model is then used to show the effects of inclement weather on vehicle throughput at a traffic inte

Quarry Mud as Partial Replacement for Fine Combination (Sand) in Concrete

Sp. Aswinpalaniappan, G. Panneerselvam
Concrete production has resulted inside the accumulated that has to be compelled to confirm substitute material to sand as inside the assembly of concretes. Quarry mud, a by-product from the crushing methodology throughout production activities is one in each of such materials. Granite fines or rock mud can be a by-product obtained throughout crushing of granite rocks to boot observed as quarr
