Engineering and Technology Journal, 2012, Volume 30, Issue 12, Pages 2027-2043

The future of computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing
(CAM) depends on the ability of their two processes to communicate with each
other and with intermediate manufacturing database. Therefore, the development of
a successful approach to the integration of CAD and CAM will require solution to
several fundamental problems in planning and geometric reasoning. The first
problem is the interface between CAD and CAM, that automatic feature
recognition is an indispensable technique to solve this problem. We address this
problem by developing an algorithm, which is considered an effective approach to
extraction and of hybrid manufacturing features of symmetrical parts. The
developed algorithm is based on the syntactic pattern primitive concept supported
by production rule technique. This approach is considered a powerful tool applied
to feature recognition field for symmetrical parts.

The main aim of the present study is to design and test the dehumidify system
for air-conditioning unit and testing rig to find out the performance of using
polymer technique to control the inside conditions, that are represented by relative
humidity and temperature in testing room by using desiccant wheel (Cromer cycle),
and testing the effect of some parameters which can improve the performance of
this system. An air-conditioner unit of 2tons capacity was installed in this system
and used one type of desiccant material (silica gel) was used in this work. Two
thicknesses of desiccant material and two widths (channels depth) were studied
3.5mm with channel depth 5cm and 2.5 mm with channel depth 20 cm and wheels
diameter of 90cm.Four rotational speeds for desiccant wheel were studied (36, 45,
60, and 90) rph and the regeneration temperature was used to control the inlet
regeneration air temperature using a number of electrical heaters. The series of test
showed that, the best COP, efficiency and relative humidity control within the
conditioned space was for the silica gel at thickness 2.5mm and channel depth
20cm. The maximum adsorption and desorption rate was 0.5427g/kg and
1.322g/kg respectively at 36 rph and (36.5 oC) regeneration temperature and the
best COP of A/C was about (5.12) at 36 rph and (42 oC) regeneration temperature.
Experimentally the best sensible and total efficiency that can be achieved was
(18.1%) and (17.98%) at 45 rph and (30.6 oC) regeneration temperature and
(17.88%), (17.76%) at 36rph and (30.91oC) regeneration temperature. The best
latent efficiency was (6.2 %) at 45 rph and (43.26 oC) regeneration temperature

Engineering and Technology Journal, 2012, Volume 30, Issue 12, Pages 2067-2075

Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) is a symmetric-key encryption each of
these ciphers has a 128-bit block size, with key sizes of 128, 192 and 256 bits. The AES cipher is specified as a number of repetitions of transformation rounds that convert the input plaintext into the final output of ciphertext. Each round consists of several processing steps, including one that depends on the encryption key[1,2]. This research proposes a technique intended to make the Advanced Encryption
Standard (AES) more safe and secure. Through the generation of random key, and permutation key sites in each round, instead of the process of expanding key locations in addition to the proposed permutation the plaintext before entering the encryption and inverse permutation for resulting ciphertext.

Engineering and Technology Journal, 2012, Volume 30, Issue 12, Pages 2076-2086

In this work a composite materials were prepared containing matrix of polymer blend (polypropylene 80% + polycarbonate 20%) reinforced by (carbon black) with different of weight fraction %. The specimen sheet, were obtained by hotcompression from extruded material, using single extruder operated at a temperature between (190-200)Co. The extrusion processes give homogeneous mixer through a regular selection of machine screw revolution per minute and temperature used in extrusion process. The weight fraction of the carbon blacks ranged from 0.0 up to 20 wt % with the polypropylene and polycarbonate blend. All samples related to, mechanical, thermal and electrical tests were prepared by single –extruder. By discharging a high voltage through the composite it was found that the resistivity of the composite decreased from (1.00E+09)-(1.00E+028). Carbon black–polypropylene and polycarbonate composites show significant differences from the neat blends measured in the frequency range. The study of physical test show that the thermal conductivity decreases with the increase of weight fraction
from (0.157-0.23).

Engineering and Technology Journal, 2012, Volume 30, Issue 12, Pages 2087-2101

A study of temperature effect with a significant impact on rheology fluid, mixing time, and also volume fractions was carried out. In this study, the w/o emulsions were prepared into three volume ratios (30-70%, 40-60% and 50-50% w/o) and at mixing time (5, 15 and
30 minutes) by using one type of crude oil (Kirkuk). The w/o emulsions were stabilized, then characteristics were measured. The effective viscosity of water-in-oil emulsions depends mainly on the volume fraction, mixing time and temperature, along with several minor
effects, such as shear rate, shear stress stream and viscosity of oil.

Engineering and Technology Journal, 2012, Volume 30, Issue 12, Pages 2102-2115

The spectral properties (absorption and fluorescence) of laser dyes (R6G& R B)
mixture have been studied; this type of laser dye belongs to the Xanthenes family,
and has been dissolved in chloroform to prepare (1*10-5, 2*10-5, 5*10-5, 7*10-5, 1*10-4
M) at room temperature.
The achieved results pointed out to an increase in the absorption and fluorescence
intensities with the increased concentration which are found in agreement with Beer –
Lambert law. These results have been also showed an expansion in the spectral range
of absorption and fluorescence with a noticed shift in the direction of longer
wavelength.
The quantum efficiency of the dissolved Rhodamine mixture in chloroform has
been calculated by using the same above concentration (96%, 91%, 80%, 71%, and
66%) respectively. The radiative life time ( 0.21 , 0.41,0.89,1.19 and 1.48 ) ns and
fluorescent life time (0.20 , 0.37,0.71,0.84, and 0.97 ) ns respectively .
It has been determined that the resulting overlap between the absorption spectrum and
fluorescence spectrum for(R 6G&RB) mixture is more than that shown for the every
dye alone solution, therefore stock shift will be more.

Engineering and Technology Journal, 2012, Volume 30, Issue 12, Pages 2116-2124

Infertility is one of the major public health problems in the Arab world, as it affects about 15% of couples seeking children. in 50% of these cases, the male partner is responsible for infertility . Y microdeletions in the azoospermia factor (AZF) region are known to be associated with spermatogenetic failure. In the current study, the aim was to determine the molecular background of male infertility using tag sequence tagged site (STS) associated with Azoospermia cases . We evaluated the incidence of Y chromosome microdeletions in (100) Iraqi infertile male patients with primary idiopathic male infertility and 50 fertile males (controls) by polymerase chain reaction using 11 STSs in the azoospermia factor (AZF) region. Of the 100 infertile men, Y-chromosome Microdeletion in the AZFa , AZFb and AZFc regions were detected in (64%)cases. The pathological significance of these deletions is not clear yet or most probably belongs to environmental pollution by depleted uranium used by collision forces in Al-Anbar governorate .

Proposed Combined PTS with Clipping and Filtering Technique for PAPR Reduction in OFDM System

Ghanim Abd AL Kareem

Engineering and Technology Journal, 2012, Volume 30, Issue 12, Pages 2125-2137

One of the major drawbacks of OFDM is high Peak-to-Average Power Ratio
(PAPR) which can result in poor power efficiency and serious distortion in the transmitter amplifier. In this paper, the advantages of two different approaches to PAPR reduction are exploited in order to reduce the PAPR more significantly. The first approach is based on clipping and filtering which provides a high PAPR reduction at the cost of signal distortion. The second approach (Partial Transmit Sequence PTS or Selected Mapping SLM methods) results in no distortion. The
performance of the three proposed combined methods(Clipping And Filtering with PTS scheme, SLM with Clipping And Filtering scheme, and PTS with Clipping And Filtering scheme)are evaluated on the PAPR distribution function and on the Bit Error Rate as a function of Signal to Noise Ratio in Additive White Gaussian Noise Channel. The simulation results show that the proposed PTS with Clipping And Filtering scheme provides more PAPR reduction without degradation in the BER performance as compared to the other two proposed scheme (Clipping And Filtering
with PTS scheme and SLM with Clipping And Filtering scheme). The simulation results of PAPR reduction and BER performances are simulated using MATLAB R2009a computer simulation software.

Engineering and Technology Journal, 2012, Volume 30, Issue 12, Pages 2150-2164

The problem of founding important information in complex medical images which are needed in diagnosing of diseases with the complex data considered as one of the predication problem these days, so it is necessary to find aided means for diagnosing process. Artificial neural network (ANN) is one of them. This paper deals with the designing and implementation a classification ANN module for Lever Hepatitis(class-C)
or type-C which doesn’t have any vaccine these days. The different in diagnosing between hepatitis and other liver diseases is often difficult on purely clinical grounds in addition the damage to the liver causes changes in the pattern of the serum enzymes and
in recent years this has led to develop disease testing and its vaccine. Elman neural networks (NN) have been applied for automated detection of various medical diseases. Like its application on blood sample tests extracted from on line microscope (like it used
in this research).That feature selection is an important issue by removing features that do not encode important data information from the images used.This helps physicians to extract features which aided them in diagnosing process. Kernal principle component analysis (PCA) is used to represent blood images as eigen-features of training images in addition to extract mathematical module for classification of it. Finally a neural network (NN) is trained to perform the typical images and classify them (diagnosing process). The produced NN system produces used a matlab package in order to design and diagnose the proposed module. The object of this system used in our work is to diagnosing lever Hepatitis type-C in samples of blood images wherever difficulties in practical experiments by finding an optimal feature from specialists whom work in laboratories.

Engineering and Technology Journal, 2012, Volume 30, Issue 12, Pages 284-301

This study deals, with the problem of the widening expanse of time to download
is not limited to a certain mechanical property of clear-cut, but intertwined and
branched out and became one of its aspects scientific insomnia ... Because the total
value of creep does not give us a firm base to judge the causes, but under certain
circumstances can be separated total distortions for sample into two recoverable
deformation and irrecoverable deformation. Therefore, the sum that in order to
facilitate the perception of mechanical we need to know the creep resilience
modulus and may even add images to unforeseen come to know through the flexural
strain energy , which helps to understand this mechanism in order to avoid the
dangers arising from the phenomenon of creep.
Generally has this study measured the ability of novolak material side by side with
the composites prepared reinforcing the novolak material, by glass fiber once and
asbestos fibers once and hybrid fibers (30% fiber glass +30% fiber asbestos) again on
the absorption of elastic energy which disappear after the removal three – point
flexural stress and is know by creep resilience modulus, note that the ratio weighted
mount reinforced (60%) and that the samples of various kinds attended with two
different ratio from the material hardened (Hexamethylene - teraamine) (HMTA), a
percentage (10%) weight once and (14%) and weight again .
* The practical results showed that a small fraction absorbed elastic mechanical
energy after the first period of time from loading to be non-refundable after the
demise of the forces of bending acting on them, and this shows the extent of
accumulation of elastic strain energy stored in novolak material over time and raise
the value of creep resilience modulus and the consequent decrease of the potential to
restore the original situation after removing the stress and thus discouraged the return
of this energy absorbed .
As a reference this study also to the high elastic strain energy and creep resilience
modulus For an article novolak when compared composites as a result of the lack of
fiber foregoing in. This is a clear proof on the efficiency of reinforcement mechanism
to be strengthened to raise the efficiency of novolak to return the energy bending
absorbed, and study also showed that the increase the proportion of material hardened
(HMTA) to (14%) lead to the devaluation of resilience modulus which confirms the
sharply decreasing the accumulation of elastic strain energy to novolak material and composites, and indicative of, the positive impact of increasing the proportion of
material hardened can cancel at least in part the negative impact of this
accumulation of elastic strain energy stored in this article prepared to restore
elasticity.
