Article
Archaeologists and historians throughout time have relied mainly on textual, architectural, and art-historical analyses to understand the historical context of civilizations. This traditional approach has been challenged, however, by the current new practices in archaeological studies, which tend to rely on more scientific methods (e.g. informati...

The K-nearest neighbor (KNN) classifier is one of the simplest and most common classifiers, yet its performance competes with the most complex classifiers in the literature. The core of this classifier depends mainly on measuring the distance or similarity between the tested examples and the training examples. This raises a major question about whi...

The ancient game of ṭāb is a war and race game. It is played by two teams, each consisting of at least one player. In addition to presenting the game and its rules, the authors develop three versions of the game: human versus human, human versus computer, and computer versus computer. The authors employ a Genetic Algorithm (GA) to help the computer...

This article aims to investigate the possible trend in precipitation and temperature in the agricultural areas in Jordan. Six meteorological stations locate in the agricultural areas in Jordan were chosen to investigate the variation in precipitation, maximum and minimum temperature. In order to achieve accurate result, quality control was conducte...

In developing countries, abundant agricultural and industrial wastes are discharged; these wastes can be used as potential materials or replacement materials in the construction industry. Malaysia is the world’s largest producer of palm oil in the industry. Since palm oil clinker is abundant, lots of attempt have been made to investigate the possib...
Article
The number of conjugacy classes of symmetric group, dihedral group and some nilpotent groups is obtained. Until now, it has not been obtained for all nilpotent groups. Although there are some lower bounds to this value, there is no non-trivial upper bound. This paper aims to investigate an upper bound to this number for all finite nilpotent groups....

The rules and presence of the game of ṭāb have been described for only a few parts of the Near East. In recent years, occasional attestations of game boards have been found in rock surfaces corresponding with geographical locations at the outer borders of the Ottoman Empire, such as Sudan and Oman. In those locations, the game boards were different...

Covering the face and all body parts, sometimes the only evidence to identify a person is their hand geometry, and not the whole hand-only two fingers (the index and the middle fingers) while showing the victory sign, as seen in many terrorists videos. This paper investigates for the first time a new way to identify persons, particularly (terrorist...

Mutation is one of the most important stages of genetic algorithms because of its impact on the exploration of the search space, and in overcoming premature convergence. Since there are many types of mutations one common problem lies in selecting the appropriate type. The decision then becomes more difficult and needs more trial and error to find t...

Utilization of waste glass at optimum amounts in concrete production not only provides significant environmental benefits such as reducing carbon dioxide emissions generated during the production process of cement but also enhances performance of the concrete and cement. The aim of this work was to review the effect of addition of waste glass on ce...

This research presents an experimental study on the spalling of self-compacting concrete (SCC) with and without polypropylene (PP) fibres subjected to elevated temperatures and at 2 and 4 hour exposure times. The results showed spalling occurred in all specimens that did not contain PP fibre in the concrete mixture above 400oC. On the other hand, s...

This research goal is the adding of pozzolana as rough aggregate in concrete. Pozzolans of Jabl Onyzh have been described as the major supply from Jordan. It is often used in the place of a conservative aggregate in frivolous concrete. A practical examination was carried out on the resistance of Pozzolana Lightweight Concrete (PLWC) with diverse ra...

This research has used crumb rubber in asphalt mixture as a part of the coarse and fine aggregate. Three sieve sizes of crumb rubbers were used in asphalt mixture No. 4, No. 8 and No. 50, with five percent of asphalt cements (4, 4.5, 5, 5.5 and 6%) by weight and four percent of crumb rubbers (10, 20, 30 and 40%) by weight used as an aggregate for p...

This research presents application of Box-benken design method to develop model for predicting 28 days compressive strength of Self-Compacting Concrete (SCC) with partial replacement of cement with Wadi Musa bentonite, Jordan for which the data of 15 mixtureshave been tested and preparedat the laboratory of AL Hussien Bin Talal University. The use...

The objective of this study was to find if there was any validity of self-reporting accident of the drivers of water authority in Jordan. Police reports and questionnaires were used in the study; the questionnaires were processed by the drivers. The results indicated that there were some points in the questionnaire which agree with the police repor...

This paper reports the effect of addition of Polypropylene (PP) fibers in the performance of Self-Compacting Concrete (SCC) under elevated temperatures. Various SCC mixtures were made with PP fiber at 0.0, 0.05, 0.10 and 0.15% by volume added. The specimens were exposed to elevated temperatures (200°C [392°F], 400°C [752°F] and 600°C [1112°F]). The...

Reinforced concrete structures are exposed to harsh environments, yet they are often expected to last with little or no repair or maintenance for long periods of time (often 100 years or more). For this reason, a durable structure needs to be produced. In addition, bridge reinforced concrete suffering from attacks of chloride penetration that cause...

In order to classify a finite group using its elements orders, the order classes are defined. This partition determines the number of elements for each order. The aim of this paper is to find the order classes of 2-generator p-groups of class 2. The results obtained here are supported by Groups, Algorithm and Programming (GAP).

The Umayyad qusour (desert palaces) are monumental structures built during the reign of the first caliphate of Islam. Usually dismissed as “pleasure palaces” or “hunting lodges,” some scholars are beginning to argue that these prominent structures were strategic interventions in the landscape. Until now, historians have relied mainly on textual, ar...

This paper proposes a new method of combining multiple radar images from different frequencies to form a composite. The method uses MatLab software to automatically combine GPR images. The basic image combination depends on the depth of radar wave penetration and frequency resolution. This paper also proposes and establishes a new algorithm to dete...

This paper presents a new algorithm to extract the diameter of a buried utility from a GPR image depending on its hyperbolic shape. To know the exact size of a buried utility would be a great achievement as size sometimes indicates the type and purpose of a utility. The algorithm does not depend on wave velocity or electric properties as these fact...

I want to make a balloon full of water and then reinforce it by steel mesh (The balloon shape is a rectangular prism).  After that some load will be applied on this balloon.This is to study the balloon resistance. I will need a simulation software to determine balloon material and its geometric parameters and the mesh specifications.
