Trying to mitigate early-age fractures in concrete buildings is crucial for ensuring adequate durability, minimising potential strength loss, and lowering maintenance costs. Because these cracks challenge the residential comfort and the aesthetic appearances of buildings.
So, what are the alternative measures adapted to mitigate arly-age cracks in the construction industry?
Does anyone know an analytical relationship for computing mixing Reynolds number for a power law fluid ?
I was able to find an approximation, or a modified Reynolds number but I would like to know whether the scientific community uses it in research and/ or industrial applications.
Dead Sea of Jordan has its own novelty by prevailing as the only natural waterbody of earth with viability to float. Although there are several inland water bodies like Caspian Sea and Black Sea, what is the main reason for the unusual salinity of Dead Sea? Is the origin of Dead Sea - A scientific marvel or myth?
If the comprehensive answer is found, it would help the several branches of science.
The above of our two research articles are two of our important efforts on how to conserve the soil and use it for the enhancement of reforestation to mitigate climate change impacts such as Urban Heat Island, loss of endemic species, scarcity of water and greenhouse gas emissions which are the leading concerns in urban built environment. Our articles have addressed a way to achieve the sustainable development goals such as SDG6, SDG12 and SDG 13.
Soil resources are most critical prerequisites those need to be conserved, utilized and given back to the earth to enhance the sustainable existence of living organisms. Current technological trends are mostly focusing on mining the soil resources and fulfilling the human needs using anthropogenic activities. This trend needs to revisit, addressed the research gaps and more interests need to be shown by researchers and stakeholders to enhance the optimum usage of soil resources with minimal harmful effects to nature.
I request the researchers to provide your opinions in this regard. Thank you.
I am an undergraduate student doing a thesis regarding slope stability analysis using PLAXIS 2D. My study area is at Kajang, Malaysia. I only assumed the phreatic water level because I don't have any borehole data. I have already done the model but I have questions regarding my model:
1. Is the water level that I have marked and assumed logical? (40 m above flat land)
2. What does the legend on the right represent, and is it the FOS? (The FOS that I obtained from the model is 1.780 as shown in the picture below)
3. Is the part that I have marked in the picture the critical slip surface (Picture 3)?
Thank you in advance for your help.
I have prepared an article that performs a literature review on the concept of Digital Twin. Since the doctoral program in which I am is a program based on the compendium of publications, it is necessary that all the articles that I do are published in a journal that appears in the latest list published by the Journal Citation Reports (SCI and / or SSCI) or SCOPUS. In addition, at least one of them must be in the first or second quartile of its category. Therefore, I would like to try to get this article published in one that is in the Q1 quartile, so that I can take this burden off my shoulders. For now I have found the following:

Does anyone have a recommendation for any other? Is it advisable to avoid generic journals? The more categories the journals deal with, the better?
Thank you very much in advance.
How to write formally within the context of mathematics that: "given two series S1 and S2 and they are subtracted each other coming from a proved identity that is true and the result of this subtraction is a known finite number (real number) (which is valid) the two series S1 and S2 are convergent necessarily because the difference could not be divergent as it would contradict the result of convergence? I need that definition within a pure mathematical scenario ( I am engineer).
" Given S1- S2 = c , if c is a finite and real number, and the expression S1-S2 = c comes from a valid deduction, then, S1 and S2 are both convergent as mandatory."
Green roofs are becoming increasingly popular among researchers, engineers and related construction stakeholders to mitigate food crisis, Urban heat island effect, rainfall scarcity and enhancement of thermal comfort in urban ecosystems. Substrate is the most important component of a green roof. Our research team has carried out an extended systematic review regarding all the types of green roof research in the past 50 years and published a research article in Frontiers in Built Environment:
In your perspective, apart from the fields mentioned in our research article (link given above),
What are the scopes available within green roof substrates-related research for future studies? Are there any justifications for the choice?
I like to do my Ph.D in mechanical engineering. My first option is Deemed to be University in India. And the Deemed to be university is approved by the University grands commission.
But some people are telling, studying in Deemed to be university is not valid. And telling you are not able to get a job in foreign countties.
Please clarify my doubt.
Systems Engineering (SE), Digital Engineering (DE) and Mission Engineering (ME) are three distinct approaches to designing and developing complicated systems. We are just now seeing the three approaches starting to be employed simultaneously. They are mutually supportive and when used together, can dramatically shorten development schedules and shorten timelines. Intuitively, I believe 1+1=1+5. But I want to quantify the result. Are there any close parallels in other industries, where I can use an existing formula that takes into consideration how many areas of mutual support exist, how much time and money is saved by each engineering approach operating alone, etc. I have reviewed 20 years of research involving financial synergy in business mergers and acquisitions and the medical synergy of combining different drugs and the combined effects that can be achieved. But neither of these seems to be a close parallel to my engineering-triad challenge.
Has anyone studied this? If not, is there parallel research that I can draw from? I want to write a paper on this topic. Thanks, in advance.
Lockdowns due to the COVID pandemic in last three years (2020-22) has played a significant role in the widespread of online based classrooms using applications like Zoom, MS teams, Webex and Google Meet. While substantial amount of the students were happy to complete their semester classes in due time without getting hampered by the lockdowns, thanks to the online based classrooms, there are also notable amount of students and parents who were complained regarding the online based classrooms that they have drastically distracted the academic performance of students.
Overall, I would like to leave it as an open-ended question. Dear researchers, what you think regarding the online based classroom? Is it an advantage for students or a disadvantage?
Hi! I‘m an industrial Engineering student ready to graduate. I only still have to write my final bachelor thesis which i would like to be about sustainability. Sustainability is a very important topic for everyone, especially for the industry.
Any topic or problem suggestions would be very helpful.

A project I'm working on has now been turned into a paper, but I'm not sure what the difference is between these two terms. Considering my college is also organizing an event, I'd love to present it there.
I need a low electron density alloy for a project. I am an electrical engineer, so I would be very grateful if someone with metallurgy background (or any relevant background) can help me to find a good material with this property.
Many thanks in advance
I have been using the ARG2 rheometer and conducting an Oscillatory amplitude using citrated whole blood. But I have never been able to get an LVR. Has anyone tried doing this and successfully had an LVR?
Dear respected colleagues,
I am grateful for your kind support in the following matter.
I want to register as a Chartered Engineer (CEng) at (IMechE). However, my BACHELOR and MASTER degrees in Iraq, which most probably they are not accredited by IMechE and Engineering Council’s academic requirements for registration (UK). I am not sure about that.
I checked the following webpages from IMechE:
However, I have not received a clear picture regarding to the membership as a CEng at IMechE for a mechanical engineer whose education background (bachelor and master) from Iraqi universities.
My question is: anybody from Iraqi education background, Iranian, Syrian, East Asian or from any other country education background [that not accredited by IMechE and Engineering Council’s academic requirements for registration (UK)] EVER APPLIED FOR CEng membership at IMechE? and obtained membership at IMechE as a CEng?
I am very thankful if anybody experienced the similar situation and GOT MEMBERSHIP AT IMechE to share his/her experience here or email me at ((((((firstname.lastname@example.org))))))).
Thank you very much for your kind cooperation and great support.
What are the differences between shop drawings and builder works drawings, and what are the differences between them?
As their name clearly states; shop drawings are drawings produced by the shop; ie. as an example when a client buys an equipment for installation the shop produces drawings; called shop drawings; for the subcontractor to implement.
Builder works drawings; as their name implements also; are drawings produced by the builder or subcontractor who is responsible for executing works. Builders use builder work drawings on site.
The shop drawings; produced and used by the by contractor engineers based on design drawings; details are based on standard specifications and tender requirements. On the other hand builder works drawings are produced by the subcontractor based on shop drawings, and used by his engineers and builders, builder works drawings are based on the details of equipment the subcontractor is planning to install; and must with shop drawings details.
The consultant compares shop drawings with approved design drawings, and work on site with shop drawings for final approval.

Finding the seismic pressure is an important parameter to quantify the damages on structures during large earthquakes. Since soil force equilibrium in wedge approach can be used in site conditions there are no finite methods for laboratory experiments to study the seismic earth pressure behavior. A simple demonstration in this research area would help many students to understand its basic concept with good insight.
I‘m currently a master student and studying Software Design and Engineering and looking for master thesis topics in the field of Microservices. I‘m not sure actually about the current topics for research in this domain and I need your help.
I'm solving nonlinear second order equation by using finite difference method . finally for calculating value at any desired node, knowing three preceding nodes is required however by knowing boundary condition just one of these nodes becomes obvious and still knowing two other values is necessary. it must be noted there are plenty of guesses for values of these nodes which lead to compatible response.
In a discussion, with an acquaintance, we found out that research is highest form of learning _
Important notes from the discussion are as follows :
- Manner in which a teacher (speaker) passes ( visual, textual, audio-Video, experimental demonstration etc.) on the information to the target audience.
Effective teaching is expressing the information based on the target audience, and not the teachers.
Manner in which a person is accustomed (trained) to given set of skills and it's practice (application) , does not matter, who is the individual.
Manner in which we teach ourselves the available information, train ourselves to identify the flaws in proper understanding of information, present the possible solution ( experimental, mathematical etc.) , based on our skillset.
Do you agree?

I am looking for a lecturer job for engineering college in India. Since there are millions of websites available on Google, most of them look like false advertisements or outdated ones. Here is my question: can some one please suggest me which website is more genuine based on your experience for finding lecturer jobs in India?
To whom it may concern...
Case shown in pictures below need to stop in front of it...
What the mean of overload... What will be the meaning of calculated loading before design... and.... What really mean the structural design based on submitted data..
All, in general,.. knows that.. design start with converting functional use of the building to loading on structural element... then start design element by element ...
So, what might be the supposed loading to one story house... based on all adopted code... ? this is the first question..
Then what you think, .. or what the supervisor engineer might think the value of such loading on that slab shown in pictures attached... ? this is the second question...
Then at last... whom responsibility is that... if failure occur...? where that will be the most important question....
Limited education with low experiences causes such cases, ... or... we need to ask the supervised engineer if he care...
Question-4: How mature are our computing platforms and programming languages for enabling autonomous software generation mostly at run-time?

Weather forecast has utmost importance in Aviation, Ship routing, safety measures, planning and designing of structures, urban areas, offshore maintenance, natural resources, coastal areas, Agriculture, pollutants management and in many more weather applications in world wide.
As well known
In almost all papers the experimental section is so short and not detailed for instance no clear weights setup and so on
Where can we find expanded detailed narration of experiments and methods
The acceptable industry standards for water pressure is 140 kPa - 560 kPa. Domestic appliances operate under the intermediate pressure magnitudes. Topographic features and the increase of customer density cause deviations in water pressure throughout the supply system. In some cases, some water supply networks provide water in exaggerated high pressure to reach some customers in high altitude. This higher pressure accelerates the volume of water running out through unobserved leakages in supply system which results on microbursts of water pressure that may cause large scale failure and demands higher maintenance cost for water supply providers.
Dear researchers, what is your recommended solution to prevent these unnecessary pressure rise against transient scenarios?
I am finding difficulties while publishing one of my manuscript related to Maintenance Engineering. I worked very hard through out entire Year on this, and I believe that this manuscript will be very helpful and informative to any readers belong to Maintenance Engineering domain. I have submitted this in to renowned Journals but it's not been accepted. I have also updated the information as per reviewer's, However I am not satisfied with their comments.
What should I do? Please advise me.
There is nothing worse for curb appearance than chipped and cracked concrete, particularly in steps. But you don’t have to put up with that blight any longer. By the result of weather changes exerted on an existing construction for prolonged time, it causes contraction and expansion those gradually results concrete steps cracks and break up with time.
Dear researchers, I would like to get expert opinions on how to fix this issue with,
prolonged sustainability .
Your answers are highly welcomed.
Question-9: How may a nondeterministic intelligent programming language be created in order to enable run-time intelligent behavior generation for handling indeterministic events and autonomous decision-making requirements in SSE?
You only relate Architecture to Engineering or Computer. I work with Architectural History and Architectural Design and neither are contemplated in your "Disciplines" field. There is a great number of people working in these areas. If you don't have subjects like these, it's difficult to use your services as a place for grouping information.
Question-6: Are our programming languages sufficiently expressive for designing intelligent software? What would happen to a software system if an expected ‘if-then-else’ structures were indeterminable at design-time or exhausted at run-time?
Question-8: How may an intelligent software system be trusted and verified when its state space is infinitive in de facto, such as those of self-driving vehicles and mission-critical robots?
Question-2: Why have AI technologies been approached by data-driven neural networks rather than program-driven software engineering?
Human dynasty in its millennium era. We have identified fire from the friction of stones and now we are interacting with Nano robots. Once it was a dream to fly but today all the Premier league, La liga and Serie A players travel in airplane at least twice in a week due to the unprecedented growth of human science. BUT ONE THING IS STILL ELUDING IN THE GLITTERING PROFILE OF HUMAN DYNASTY.
Although we have the gravitation theory, Maxwell's theory of electromagnetism, Max Planck's Quantum mechanics, Einstein's relativity theory and in most recently the Stephen Hawking's Big bang concepts...… Why can't we still revert back and forth into our life?
Any possibilities in future?
Why? in terms of mathematics, physics and theology??
Thermal mass is a property of construction materials to absorb, store, and release heat energy. It is an important element of passive solar house design and can be utilized for passive solar heating, passive solar cooling, or both. I would like to know, what is the most effective technique to quantify these kinds of thermal masses in an existing construction?

I am working on Mg composites fabricated by powder metallurgy. I have investigated the wear behavior of Mg-based composites with variation in temperature. I observed that wear rate increased with an increase in the wear temperature. Can anyone explain me in detail, why is it happening? What is the mechanism? I am looking for your responses.
Thank you so much.
Q. : Students asked me that "we only study about different forms of energy, one form of energy getting converted to another forms of energy. But no one knows what is energy."
Ans: No answer
Q. Sir Why do we have to call something by the name that a scientists used long back, can't we change it.
Ans: Science or engineering is field of perspective, how one looks at something matters. But everything that you read in a book can be changed. If you wish you can express it in a different manner.
It is the terminology, that we learn, in which people who observed certain phenomenon used to explain a particular concept we follow. Learn. To make world understand what you have to say you have to first make them ready to understand. Otherwise no one would know.
Please, I need the doc template for Alexandria Engineering Journal.
I require it directly to download.
I appreciate any help you can provide.
I have a simulation code for a Horizontal Washing Machine.
The code solves the equations of motions of the system by Matlab ode45 and plots the vibration response of the system at the transient state of performance.
In this code, the frequency (omega) is an exponential function of time, as it's stated below (and its diagram is attached to 'the question'):
The resulting displacement response is attached to the question.
It is desired to :
First, increase the frequency to omega_0 by exponential1
Then, increase it to omega_1 by exponential2
But 'the problem' is that:
the displacement response shows an unexpected increase in frequency at the beginning of the second exponential increase (it becomes 20 Hz, which is much larger than the maximum frequency in the simulation- 10 Hz).
