Results from Finite Element (FE) study on the response of composite cylinder shells with cutouts and subjected to internal pressure and axial compression are presented. The objective of the study is to improving the buckling load by applying the internal pressure whilst the compression load is applied. The effect of localized stress concentration distributed around the cutout region also being examined. The numerical results are obtained using ABAQUS finite element code software package. The composite cylinder shells were tested in two conditions which are a combination of axial compression load with internal pressure and a single axial compression load. The effects of varying internal pressure and cutout size on the pre-buckling, buckling, and post-buckling responses of the shell are demonstrated. Reasonable results comparison was obtained by reviewing previous literature. Results indicated that the load distribution and displacement of the cutout significantly influence the structural response of the shell. The results also indicate that the stress distributions can be affected by the size of the cutout under axial compression load. © (2013) Trans Tech Publications, Switzerland.

This paper depicts the real situation faced by employees of Semiconductor Company Y at wire bond production line. The importance of ensuring prolonged standing considered as a serious matter was highlighted in the medical facts about the side effects of prolonged standing which is circulatory problems and standing symptoms. The objectives of this research are to identify the effect of prolonged standing during work, to assess the work method and to evaluate employee awareness of ergonomic issues. The data about pain were collected by using risk identification process that used an observation an interview to twenty employees of the company. From the interview result obtained, it was found that seventeen employees were suffered from sore feet and nineteen employees were suffered from back pain. Another step for proactive risk assessment is a direct observation, performed by 'walk through' inspection at the standing workstation areas. Risk assessment involved only wire bond operators in order to ensure that the data collected is accurate and valid which is involved fifty operators wire bond. Data Industrial Accident Prevention Association (IAPA) is derived from the production wire bonds. The (IAPA) Ergonomic Risk Assessment found that the operator of wire bonds in the company's exposure to risk indicators potential has been identified risk to an acceptable level. The result of evaluation showed that the level of employee's awareness was still low and an adequate and affective. Ergonomic management system need to be provided so that it will have a great influence to foster culture of awareness. © 2015 IEEE.

In the hospital, nurses need to transfer a paralyse patient from medical bed to others places, such as x-ray laboratory, MRI laboratory, another ward and others. Normally two nurses are needed to transfer the patient. The task becomes more challenging when transferring an overweight patient. The nurses will experience a musculoskeletal disorder (MSDS) including back injuries in the long run. If the task is carried out frequently, most likely the nurses will experience a chronic back pain. Smart Transfer Patient Bed is designed to solve the nurses' problems in transferring patient. The aim of the product is to assist the nurse to transfer the patient from the warded bed to the medical bed so that the nurse can bring the patient to another location. The main concept of this product is to move the patient slowly and smoothly. A linear actuator and ball transfers are used as the main components to transfer the patient. The linear actuator is used to pull and push the moving platform. While the ball transfers are used to reduce the friction when the platform is moving. Smart Transfer Patient Bed can support a patient with maximum weight of 150 kg. The main frame of this product was made by using an aluminium profile. During the assembly process, the platform could not move in on a straight line smoothly. After some modifications were made, the platform could move on straight line smoothly and safely. © 2015 IEEE.

This paper presents image processing technique which consist of filtering and image segmentation using Otsu's Method. This technique is used on the captured image in Dielectrophoresis (DEP) experiment to detect cancer cells (K562). The image processing technique results were measured by referring to mean and standard deviation using histogram. The mean value in the histogram indicates the average number of white and black pixels in that image. The value of standard deviation indicates the processed image able to show overall black and white intensity more precisely. This enables more cells captured and it exhibits more evenly distributed black pixels (cell). The ability of this method has the potential to give a more consistency and reliability in plotting the DEP spectrum from which the electrophysiological parameters were extracted. This would produce a quality image to plot the DEP spectrum and will expedite the progress in identifying the differences between normal and cancerous cells. © 2015 IEEE.

Sustainability of physical facilities is very important for every public higher education institution in Malaysia. Each year budget is allocated for the improvement of these facilities. However, limited financial aid besides the need to diversify the programs in the institution has resulted in most to operate in poor conditions. These demands have resulted in many institutions to observe the phenomenon of sustainability hence bringing about the solution to this problem. In line with this, CMET and PSA have taken the measure to conduct a survey of customer satisfaction on the perspectives of Diploma in Electronic Engineering (Medical) students of semester three, five and six on the physical facilities provided by PSA. The physical facilities include classrooms, laboratories, lecture halls, library, hostels and cafeteria along with furniture, space, ICT, lighting, indoor air quality and safety equipment, all accessible in their physical environment. Subsequently, this has led to a higher sense of awareness inculcated among students in the use of physical facilities in ensuring its sustainability alongside improvements and additions made to the number of facilities which are found insufficient. © 2015 IEEE.
