Little consideration has been given to vibrations when the effect of grinding process parameters on the surface morphology is studied. Taking a grinding force as the intermediate variable, influences of grinding depths on the surface topography are investigated with considering vibrations in this paper. Firstly, a novel grinding force prediction model is proposed through amending the Malkin model by integrating with contact arc length and abrasive grain contact angle. Secondly, vibrations of the feed platform and the grinding wheel shaft are analysed. Vibration displacement in the x-direction of wheel axis remains substantially between 140-150 nm, while in the y-direction, it increases with the grinding depth. Finally, three-dimensional sur.

The study investigates how liquidity positions affect bank performance at Vietnamese commercial banks for the period of 2007–2017, in terms of credit risk and profitability. We employ the generalised method of moments (GMM) for the dynamic panel models to implement some alternative regression techniques. The robust results indicate that the liquidity position induces a trade-off between risk and return. More precisely, banks holding more liquid assets tend to face less credit risks but yield less profits. These effects seem not to be strong and we also examine if the effect of liquidity on bank return exerts an increasingly downward slope depending on bank riskiness, but there is no significant evidence found. The findings of this study pro.

The CNG dispensing unit is an important investment for taking advantage of CNG fuel, though its handling is not as simple as other conventional fuels. The cost can only be realised if it is operated with maximum availability. In present research work, risk analysis of CNG dispensing unit has been exemplified by applying fuzzy digraph matrix and D-S theory. Forty-three failure causes have been identified, analysed and prioritised using the mentioned approach. The display error and regulator function failure for metering skid, internal valve failure and gasket damage for compressor, internal pipe leakage and PLC failure for priority panel, flow sensor, motherboard and valve failure for dispenser unit, plug and tank leakage have been identifie.

The purpose of this paper is to report on a study comparing joint venture and non-joint venture projects in terms of their performance and usage of project management practices. Data were obtained from project managers at 99 contracting organisations in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) construction industry. The results show an agreement between the two types of project in the usage level of 35 out of 40 different practices associated with the ten knowledge areas articulated in the Project Management Institute (PMI) Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK) Guide (PMI, 2017). However, joint venture construction projects had higher usages of four cost-and procurement-related practices compared to non-joint venture construction projects. The.

The importance of hydraulic, geomorphological and hydrodynamic conditions in rivers on watershed management cannot be overstated. However, in developing countries, sometimes the infrastructure is poor and these conditions are not managed properly. Therefore, this paper proposes a methodology to calculate flow, slope, Chezy's C, Manning's n and hydrodynamic conditions in rivers with a tracer. This methodology allows the calculation of these hydraulic and hydrodynamic characteristics for rivers that have velocity from 0.108 m/s to 1.93 m/s.

This paper presents a methodology for designing of flapping mechanisms and rapid fabrication using 3D printing (3DP) technique for subsequent application in micro aerial vehicles. A key feature of the present study is constraining of the mechanism weight and aerial vehicle size to stipulated limits while optimising the functional features of flap angle, flapping frequency and lift. These contradictory set of requirements are fulfilled through syntheses involving linkage number, linkage type and dimensions. As geometrical features are intricate and the required quantity is small, 3DP techniques of fused deposition modelling and digital light processing (DLP) of photopolymers are used as fabrication options. Assembly integration studies are c.

Entrepreneurial learning can be observed in many innovative activities that take place in established organisations such as media companies. In recent years, the media industry is experiencing a dramatic transition in many aspects such as creating content, distributing content to consumers and monetising audiences. These changes oblige media companies to engage in entrepreneurial learning dealing with existing and potential opportunities of the market for surviving and growing. Despite the acknowledged importance of entrepreneurial learning, research explicitly addressing the question of what organisation learns entrepreneurially is still in poor supply. Using grounded theory method and drawing on five in-depth case studies of Danish media

The main cause of global warming generates from cement manufacturing industries. In order to reduce green house gas emission, development of alternative of cement is the main challenge. The industrial by-product fly ash (FA) which was rich in silica and alumina activated with sodium hydroxide (NaOH) and sodium silicate (Na2SiO3) solution produced a binder. This was combined with natural coarse aggregate and fine aggregate to produce geopolymer concrete (GPC). This paper presents the experimental investigations on the fresh and hardened properties of GPC mix. Fresh concrete properties such as workability and hardened concrete properties like compressive strength (CS), split tensile strength (STS), flexural strength (FS), density and water ab.

Many multi label problem transformation (PT) and algorithm adaptation (AA) methods need to be explored to get good candidate for avifaunal occupancy modelling. This research contrasted eight commonly used state-of-the-art PT and AA multi label methods. The data was created by collecting January 2014-December 2014 records from e-bird repository for the study area Madurai district, south eastern Tamil Nadu. The analysis shows that classifier chain (CC) and multi label naive Bayes (MLNB) are the good aspirants for avifauna data. The MLNB did best with 0.019 hamming loss and 90% average precision. To the best of our knowledge this is the first time to use MLNB for avifaunal data and the results of multi label naive Bayes concludes that out of 1.

This paper suggests a framework for context. Departing from the perspective of structuration theory, we propose that cognitive processes enable agents to act within structures. Cognition is dependent on institutional configurations which range from stable to fast moving and dynamic. It is argued that the degree of the agents' embeddedness affects the cognition of the agent, which, in turn, enables the agents' abilities to act upon and influence structures in the understanding of structuration theory. Through this mechanism, context emerges. A case study to depict the way a firm engages in cross-border activities and navigates within different institutional environments is presented. We propose that cognition is the link which connects insti.

Virtualisation enables multiples virtual machines (VMs) to co-locate on a same physical machine with total isolation. Hence using VMs to launch web services or applications is the common trend nowadays in enterprise information technology (IT). Data centre provides infrastructure to create, configure and manage VMs. It has seen as a utility that clients can pay for only as needed. The growing complexity of modern networked computer systems with virtualisation technology necessitates the needs efficient resource management. We have proposed an intelligent resource manager to control the resource allocation in Xen virtualised environment for dynamically allocating resources to individual VM. Our resource management architecture comprises of f.
