The yield stresses were 0.270, 0302 and 0.320 Pa for acetylated, succinylated and dextran conjugated protein respectively.  Activation energy of acetylated and succinylated protein were in the range 6.2-8.2 and 2-5.4J mol1 respectively.  Thus acetylation of S. stenocarpa protein made its dispersion viscositymore susceptible to temperature change than succinylation.  These results suggest that acylation and dextran conjugation of African yam bean (S. stenocarpa) protein produce protein species with different rheological properties.The molecular weight distribution and rheological properties of acetylated, succinylated and dextran conjugated African yam bean (sphenostylis stenocarpa) proteins dispersion were studied Succinylation of the protein showed the three prominent electrophoretic bands of the unmodified protein but all tile bands disappeared with acetylation. Immobile band characterized dextran conjugated S. stenocarpa electrophoregram.  The flow behavior indices (n) of these modified S. stenocarpa protein dispersions were in the range 0.03-022.  This is an indication that they were pseudoplastic in nature. This pseudoplastic nature was maintained in ionic media 0.05-0.5 mol dm 3, pH 3-8 and temperature range of 27-75 0C.

A study to determine effects of cold water and vitamin C on growth performance in 216 Anak 2000 broiler chickens was carried out during hotdry season in the SW Nigeria. The minimum, maximum and mean temperatures during the experiment were 19.4, 35.8 and 27.6oC respectively while the relative humidity was 72.6%. The broilers, Anak 2000 at d 28 were allotted to two groups offered either ordinary

Use of Neural Networks for Pavement Condition Rating

Authors: Abiola, O. S
Nigerian Institute of Industrial Engineers, pp 79-88.

This paper discusses the use of Artificial Neural Networks (ANN) for pavement condition rating. The paper examined two different ANN algorithms, Radial Basis Function Neural Network (RBFNN) and Multi-layer Perceptron Back-propagation Neural Network (MLPBPNN) for the purpose of modelling pavement condition rating.

Solving the Technical problems of Arid and Semi-Arid Zone Afforestation in Nigeria

Print PDF

Author: M. O. Adedire

Arid zone afforestation is a difficult and costly venture.  It is estimated that between 300 and 500 million seedlings of forest trees are planted every year in the arid and semi-arid zones of the world with varying degrees of success.  This paper discusses the major technical problems of arid zone afforestation and highlights certain pre-requisites for its success.
