  • Recycling of Bamboo (Bambusa vulgaris Schrad) Recovered from Scaffold into Material for Furniture Production | Adewole | Innovative Systems Design and Engineering
    Bello Abstract Interest is growing daily on the utilization of bamboo as a reliable supplement to wood in furniture production to mitigate the scarcity of wood raw material supply This study explored the viability of recycling bamboo recovered from scaffold into intermediate raw material for indoor furniture production Strips were processed from the recovered Bambusa vulgaris Schrad and were subjected to conventional treatment methods with some modification to simplify the treatment The durability of the treated strip was evaluated in accordance with ASTM D2017 A storage shelf was designed and fabricated using laminates made from the bamboo strips The diameter and wall thickness of the recovered bamboo culms ranges from 6 00cm 10 00cm and 10 00mm 12 70mm respectively The result shows that ordinary soaking of the strips in water for 3 weeks could make the strips to be sufficiently resistant to termite attack but fairly resistant to powder post beetle Application of kerosene as a secondary treatment will make the resistance of the bamboo strip effective to powder post beetle A Complete Knock Down CDK Magazine shelf suitable for office use was fabricated using road side carpentry workshop tools This study was able to recycle Bambusa vulgaris recovered

  • Sustainability of Borehole Water Schemes Through Community Participation in Ejigbo, Osun State | Emmanuel | Innovative Systems Design and Engineering
    Community Participation in Ejigbo Osun State Toyobo Adigun Emmanuel Muili Akeem Bamidele Abstract The study evaluates the contributions of community efforts to the borehole water supply schemes in Ejigbo Local Government Area LGA It examines the socio economic characteristics of the respondents enumerates the number of boreholes and their functionality identifies the Agency that sponsored the provision of water scheme s and suggests measure of sustainance of the boreholes in the area Data were collected from both primary and secondary sources The primary source involves the enumeration of the total number of boreholes in the area 250 structured questionnaires were administered using systematic random sampling method to collect information on the number of boreholes their functionality Agencies involved in the provision and community contributions Data gathered were analysed using both descriptive and regression statistics to affirm the degree of functionality of boreholes in the area The study revealed that 36 boreholes were in poor condition and needed repairs to function effectively Communities were not much involved in the maintenance of boreholes in the area hence there was no sense of belonging by the people for repairs and maintenance The study therefore recommends command approach in addition to the existing practice

  • Tensile Strength Characteristics of Fanpalm under Various Exposure Conditions | A. | Innovative Systems Design and Engineering
    expensive The need for durability of the fanpalm under varying exposure conditions is the concern of this study The ultimate tensile strength of fanpalm was determined under various exposure conditions to evaluate its possible usage both on short term and long term basis Fanpalm specimens were cut shaped and coated with various protective agents sodium sulphate magnesium sulphate hydroxylamine epoxy and sulphur then cured in alkaline media 0 1N sodium hydroxide solution for 3 7 14 28 and 56 days A set of uncoated Fanpalm were subjected to the same curing conditions as the coated specimens to serve as the control Tensile strength tests were carried out to evaluate the ultimate tensile stress at various ages for each of the exposure conditions The results showed that epoxy coated fanpalm specimens recorded the highest strength at 56 days of 80 83N mm 2 while magnesium sulphate coated specimens had the lowest strength of 66 25N mm 2 during the same period The uncoated specimens had average strength of 65 00N mm 2 at 56 days in alkaline media It could be said that the coating improves the tensile strength of fanpalm in alkaline media It was concluded that fanpalm coated with

  • The Use of Fibre Waste as Complement in Concrete for a Sustainable Environment | A. | Innovative Systems Design and Engineering
    issue of waste management Organic fibres forms major percentage of waste produced from agricultural products and should be of great concern Fibres have been used to reinforce composites concrete to obtain lighter weight reduce shrinkage effects which serve to reduce environmental waste Natural fibre is 100 bio degradable and recyclable thereby eliminate pollution promote biodiversity and conservation of natural resources and thus environmentally friendly This paper focuses on utilization of some fibres as solid wastes for making economically friendly and affordable green environment Three fibres Jute Oil palm and Polypropylene fibres were used as complement in concrete and its suitability durability and influence on the properties of concrete were assessed The percentages of fibre used were 0 25 and 0 5 of cement content by weight A total of 84 concrete cube specimens were prepared for standard tests which include compression test slump test and compaction factor test The compression test was carried out at concrete ages of 7 14 21 and 28 days As the percentage of the fibre increases the tendency for fibre to ball up becomes higher in water The test results showed that for Jute and Oil palm fibres the optimum fibre content was 0 25
