King Abdulaziz University was founded in 1967 in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. Designed by English architect John Elliott, it had 2,000 faculty and more than 37,000 students in 2000/2001. Established initially as a private university by a group of businessmen led by Sheikh Muhammad Abu Bakr Bakhashab Pasha and including the writer Hamza Bogary. in 1974 King Abdulaziz University was converted to a public university by a resolution of the Council Ministers of Saudi Arabia . Due to the adoption of the government, the university changed to a large university. According to the latest statistics conducted in 2012 from the Ministry of Higher Education in Saudi Arabia, King Abdulaziz University had 6,148 faculty and total of 132,094 students.The university has number of scientific and theatrical fields of study and the exclusiveness of certain specializations such as Seas science, Nuclear Engineering, and Medical Engineering. Due to Islamic regulations, King Abdulaziz University has separate campuses for male and female students. The university offers an external program and online programs to help students who can not attend classes and to cope with the development in learning by using the technology. Wikipedia.

The transoral repair of choanal atresia is a method for the surgical repair of choanal atresia that uses a transoral approach. The procedure includes the use of a curved drill, a curved shaver, curved grasping forceps, and a suction irrigator. After endotracheal intubation, a retractor is inserted to retract the tongue. A 120 angled telescope is inserted behind the soft palate into the nasopharynx to visualize the posterior choanae. A curved drill is used to drill the atretic plate from the vomer medially to the lateral pterygoid plate laterally. The drilled section of the atretic plate is removed to clear the obstruction.

The adjustable heat exchanger provides precise control of oven temperature in a pyrolysis reaction. The heat exchanger includes two sets of hollow non-circular discs, the discs of a movable set being interleaved with the discs of a stationary set. A first working fluid circulates through a heat source oven and through the hollow stationary discs, and a second working fluid circulates through the hollow rotating discs and a pyrolysis oven. The two fluids do not mix with one another, but are always completely separate from one another. Heat transfer depends upon the relative surface area of the rotary discs interleaved between the stationary discs. Minimum heat transfer occurs when the rotary discs are rotated to a position clear of the stationary discs, and maximum heat transfer occurs when the rotary discs are completely interleaved with the stationary discs.

The congregational prayer chair is designed to provide needed support for certain worshipers participating in Muslim prayer services. The chair is constructed with a seat and seat-back supported between two connecting arms. The connecting arms are mounted on chair legs. Grooves and tracks are provided on the arms that permit the seat and the seat-back to be moved in a predetermined manner so that a worshiper can attain the required prayer positions without disturbing the alignment of the prayer rows and the other worshippers.

The systems for determining and imaging wax deposition and simultaneous corrosion and wax deposit determination in pipelines relate to systems for determining wax deposition and corrosion by one or both of two techniques. In both techniques, a source of neutron radiation is directed at the pipeline. In one technique, a neutron detector surrounded by an absorption shield defining a collimation window counts neutrons reflected back to the detector by back diffusion or backscatter radiation. In the other technique, a gamma ray detector measures gamma rays emitted when the emitted neutrons are absorbed in the pipeline. A neutron moderator-reflector is placed around three sides of the pipeline to increase the likelihood of neutron capture.
