As reported by the National Disaster Risk Reduction Coordinating Council of the Philippines, from the year 2010-2015, landslide is the third most recurring geohazard, next to floods and earthquake. Casualties caused by landslide constitute 1.55% of the total casualties during the same time span. Due to fact that a landslide early warning system is not considered, and the practice of only secluding the public from defined landslide prone areas, the safety of the general public is always at risk. The objective of this paper is to develop a landslide early warning system that utilize rain gauge and an intelligent accelerometer/inclinometer for interception of possible occurrence of landslide. With the help of PHIVOLCS and PAGASA calibration for the standard level of measurement were established: (l)rainfall amount,(2) angular displacement and (3)ground movement. With the factors observed it is expected to deliver an effective landslide early warning system that can intercept an impending landslide whether it is earthquake-induced or rain-induced. © 2016 IEEE.

Balikbayan boxes sent by OFW's abroad are delivered by freight forwarders to their rightful recipients. But before arriving at the recipient's residence these packages pass through a series of transfers and transactions (foreign forwarder, shipping company, Bureau of Customs, local forwarder, etc.). In every transaction and transfer, the balikbayan box is vulnerable to different circumstances. The security of the items inside is at stake. I-Box (Innovated Balikbayan box Operation Express) is an innovation to the common delivery system that tracks and monitors the condition of the balikbayan box for secured delivery thus solving the flaws of the normal delivery system. A point to point implementation of this design enhances the monitoring and tracking of the boxes. The realized design uses RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) tags to monitor and track the exact location of the box that is unique to every box making the identification of the box non-reproducible. © 2016 IEEE.

In this paper, we report the first synthesis of hydroxyapatite (HAp) nano-rods derived from mussel shells by a facile sonochemical method. HAp nano-rods were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), Transmission electron microscopy (TEM), and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR). The photocatalytic activity of HAp nano-rods was investigated using Rhodamine B (RhB) dye for the first time. The results confirm that degradation efficiency of 86.8% for RhB was observed after 300 min in the presence of the HAp nano-rods photocatalyst. © 2017 Elsevier B.V.

Currently, the aluminum industry is facing a major problem in the disposal of highly alkaline bauxite wastewater. It contains the red mud that is formed during alumina extraction via Bayer process. Approximately, 1.5 t/y of bauxite residue per ton of alumina were produced and continuously increasing up to 150 Mt/y. In this study, the simulated bauxite wastewater was treated using a non-seeded fluidized-bed homogeneous granulation technology. The effect of effluent pH, molar ratio of [Ca+2]in/[C2O4 −2]in (1.00, 1.25, 1.50, and 1.75), and influent flow rates (15, 25, and 35 mL min−1) were evaluated in terms of oxalate removal and granulation efficiency. Increasing the pH of effluent tend to increase the oxalate removal and granulation efficiency. The best effluent pH with highest removal of 87.6% was 5.5 ± 0.05 and for the granulation of 81.7% was 3.75 ± 0.05. Increasing the molar ratio of [Ca+2]in/[C2O4 −2]in up to 1.75 exhibits a reduction of oxalate concentration in the bauxite wastewater. This results to the highest oxalate removal of 87.6% and granulation efficiency of 85.6%. At 35 mL min−1 influent flow rate, the highest oxalate removal of 86.6% and 84.6% granulation efficiency was achieved. A firm and rigid structures of micro fragments of the granules formed was analyzed using SEM and validated by XRD analysis as calcium oxalate monohydrate (COM-CaC2O4·H2O). © 2017 Elsevier Ltd

A random access (RA) technique that is suitable for millimeter-wave cellular systems with multiple beams is proposed in this paper. A new random access preamble (RAP) is proposed to reduce the RA duration by carrying the information on beam IDs (BIDs) as well as preamble ID (PID). The properties of the RAPs such as the constant amplitude, correlation, false-alarm probability, and detection probability are analyzed for RA in a multi-user environment. It is shown by simulation that the proposed RAP is well-suited for mm-wave cellular systems with multiple beams because of its high detection probability in a multi-user environment and shorter processing time. © 2017 IEEE.

Electrochemical scanning tunneling microscopy (EC-STM) was employed to examine the molecular assembly and electropolymerization processes of 3, 4-ethylenedioxythiophene (EDOT) onto reconstructed and unreconstructed Au(1 00) single crystal electrodes in a 0.1 M HClO 4 electrolyte solution. The EDOT adsorption onto the Au(1 00)-hex surface induced lifting of the reconstruction at potentials as low as E = 0.150V (vs. reversible hydrogen electrode (RHE)), which is clear evidence of the strong EDOT-Au interaction that was also observed by cyclic voltammetry (CV). EC-STM was also able to reveal, for the first time, the dynamic process of EDOT molecular self-assembly onto the Au(1 00)-(1 × 1) surface. The EDOT adlayer was found to fit into a 4√2 × 3√2 unit cell. High-resolution STM imaging revealed a vertically tilted geometry for the EDOT molecules. Electropolymerization was also performed, revealing the solution-process formation of polymer bundles. © 2012 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

An extensive evaluation of capacity interpretation criteria is presented for driven Precast Concrete (PC) piles under axial compression loading. A database of static load tests for round and square cross-section piles under both drained and undrained loading was developed and utilized in the analysis. The compiled data are generalized into four groups (round - drained, square - drained, round - undrained, and square - undrained) to examine the differences in their behavior. Generally, similar trends for each criterion are noted for the four groups. Statistical analyses show a decreasing COV with increasing pile displacement, and the drained load tests show less variability than the undrained load tests. For drained loading, somewhat higher interpreted capacities are exhibited by round piles than by square piles. In addition, a slightly stiffer normalized load-displacement curve is shown for the drained loading compared to the undrained loading. The drained and undrained databases are further sub-divided by hammer type (drop, air/steam, diesel, and hydraulic) to explore the effects of driving energy and driving resistances on pile capacity. Based on these analyses, the relative merits and interrelationships of these criteria are established, and design recommendations for the use of these methods are suggested in terms of normalized capacity and displacement. © 2013 Korean Society of Civil Engineers and Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.

This study determined the removal of nickel from a synthetic Watts bath electroplating composition (NiCl2·6H2O, NiSO4·6H2O, and H3BO3) by homogeneous fluidized-bed granulation process. The effects of adding calcium ions present in an electroplating bath while varying influent nickel concentration (200 mg·L-1, 300 mg·L-1, and 400 mg·L-1), [CO3 2-:Ni2+] molar ratio (1.0, 1.5 and 2.0) and pH of carbonate precipitant (10.5, 10.8, and 11.0) were evaluated. Calcium ion addition was varied at 20 mg·L-1, 50 mg·L-1, and 100 mg·L-1. The best operating conditions were at 300 mg·L-1 influent nickel concentration, [CO3 2-:Ni2+] molar ratio of 1.5, and pH of 10.8 of the precipitant from different types of water source. The removal of nickel from synthetic Watts bath electroplating wastewater using tapwater was 84.93%, and 92.66% with the addition of Ca2 + ion at 20 mg·L-1. For the synthetic Watts bath electroplating wastewater using reverse osmosis water, nickel removal was 97.08% and 98.51% when pure nickel ion in the solution was used. The characterized granules has low symmetry that confirmed the characteristics of a nullaginite mineral of Ni2(CO3)(OH)2. © 2016 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.

This security system provides a cost-efficient alternative solution to intelligent security systems by using a standard webcam, personal computer, and a PIC microcontroller. This system uses a program developed in NI-LabVIEW which uses image processing. The said program only records the camera input once motion is detected, which reduces the duration of the video footage, disk space needed, as well as the time taken to review the recording. Furthermore, the camera continuously pans the area by using a PIC microcontroller and a servo motor. This feature allows the camera to cover areas outside its regular field-of-view. © 2015 IEEE.

With oil being a non-renewable energy, buyers of aviation fuel are more inclined to purchase Jet-A1 from oil companies that offer the best jet fuel. But the fact of the matter is that, aviation fuel has the same content even when you purchase it from halfway across the world. Although price is an apparent factor that airlines consider when deciding which oil company to choose for as a supplier, there are ambiguous factors that needs to be established so that continuous product development can be made by the aviation fuel organizations. This study used conjoint analysis as a tool to establish the attributes considered by airlines in deciding which oil company will best meet their needs. As a result, the following six attributes of aviation fuel were identified: availability, price, accessibility, manpower, equipment and facilities, and fuel quality and safety. The results indicate that fuel quality has the greatest influence on the respondents' purchasing intentions, followed by price, availability, equipment and facilities, and accessibility. Manpower was the least important attribute with regard to the airlines' buying intention. Based on the results from data analysis, it is concluded that conjoint analysis is an appropriate tool to identify the key attributes of aviation fuel. Using the results presented in this study, aviation fuel companies can better tailor their fuel services to meet the needs of the airlines and thus increase sales. © 2016 IEEE.
