Burapha University is one of Thailand's major public universities located in the coastal town of Bangsaen, Chonburi Province, established on 8 July 1955 originated from Bangsaen Educational College which was the first regional tertiary educational institute. The university offers degrees in more than 50 programs of study, including 75 master's programs, three Ed.D. programs, and 22 PhD programs.Burapha University currently has three campus.:Burapha University, Chonburi Campus, Mueang District, Chonburi Province established in 1955.Burapha University, Chanthaburi Campus, Ta-Mai District, Chanthaburi Province established in 1996.Burapha University, Sakaeo Campus, Wattana Nakorn District, Sa Kaeo Province established in 1997.The University colors are gray and gold. Gray means progress of intellectual knowledge, while gold means morality. The colors represent University's commitment to the intellectual knowledge and morality. Wikipedia.

The study of this article had done to Japanese tourists which were one of the majority international tourist arrivals to Thailand and used quarterly data since 1985 to 2012. The purpose was to study the relationship between 4 factors including number of Japanese arrivals to Thailand, GDP per capita of Japanese tourists, the own price and the cross price. It was multivariate analysis which investigated dependence and interaction among a set of variables in multi-values process. The tool use was VECM and Cointegration. We could conclude the relationship in the short run of various variables in Japanese tourists demand model. It produced relationship called the income elasticity of demand and the own price elasticity of demand which was equal to 3.281 and -0.505, respectively. In addition, percentage change of GDP per capita of Japanese tourists had a negative relationship with percentage change of the own price. Finally, percentage change of the cross price had a positive relationship with percentage change of the own price. In the long run, the number of Japanese tourist arrivals had a positive relationship with the GDP per capita of Japanese tourists and the own price also had a positive relationship with the cross price. © 2015 ASERS Publishing House.

This paper examined volatility of international tourist arrival growth rates to Thailand using monthly time series data for the period 1979-2010. The variable of interest for policy maker was the tourist arrival growth rates at any given month as this figure was directly related to tourism revenue growth rates. In this study we considered the volatility of international tourist arrival growth rates to Thailand by employing GARCH and GJR model. GARCH and GJR model were widely used to manage the risk exposure of financial and tourism risk.Considering the number of tourist arrivals and growth rate of tourist arrivals, it was found that the majority of tourists were from Malaysia and Japan. This study could be used to compare with the USA and the UK for making policy because of the difference in tourism volatility.From this study the GARCH model generated relatively accurate tourism volatility forecasts except for the Japan and the USA volatility, and the GJR model generated relatively accurate tourism volatility forecasts except for the Malaysia and the UK volatility. © 2014 ASERS Publishing House.

An experimental study of the cross-anisotropic elastic parameters was performed on two heavily overconsolidated clays: London Clay and Gault Clay. The study utilised a special triaxial testing apparatus that incorporates local strain measuring system and elastic wave velocity measurement system. Isotropically consolidated drained compression tests and shear wave velocity measurements were undertaken on both vertically and horizontally cut specimens. The experiments were performed under in situ isotropic stresses to study the inherent anisotropic characteristics of the clays in terms of the elastic stiffness. The deformation characteristics during triaxial compression were carefully investigated to obtain various elastic moduli and Poisson ratios. Source

The effects of initial soil fabric on the shear behaviour of granular materials are investigated by employing distinct element method (DEM) numerical analysis. Soil specimens are represented by an assembly of non-uniform sized spherical particles. DEM specimens that have different initial contact normal distributions were prepared at two different densities (loose and dense) and then isotropically consolidated triaxial tests were simulated with the following conditions: (a) different drainage conditions (undrained/drained), (b) different modes of shearing (compression/extension), and (c) different directions of shearing (vertical/horizontal). The numerical analysis results are compared qualitatively with the observed experimental data and the effects of initial soil fabric on resulting soil behaviours are discussed. The discussions include the effects of specimen reconstitution methods, effects of large preshearing, and anisotropic characteristics in drained and undrained conditions. The effects of initial soil fabric on the quasi-steady state are also investigated. The numerical analysis results can systematically explain that the observed experimental behaviours of sand are due principally to the effects of initial soil fabric. The outcome provides insights into the observed phenomena in microscopic view. Source

Whilst the introduction of turbulators in cooling channels improves the cooling efficiency, it makes the machining of the channels with a shaped tube electrolytic machining (STEM) drill in a single pass difficult. This paper describes an algorithm to model the machining of a given turbulator shape by changing the feed rate at regular intervals. This algorithm is iterative and relies on predicting the workpiece shape using the boundary element method (BEM) at each stage of the analysis. The algorithm is verified by comparing the predicted and machined shapes of a turbulator; it is shown that the resulting accuracy is good. © 2012 CIRP. Source
