An Experimental Investigation on Use of Bitumen Emulsion in the Construction of Gravel Road

Research article of American Journal of Educational Research and Reviews An Experimental Investigation on Use of Bitumen Emulsion in the Construction of Gravel Road Vishal Kumar Pala aDepartment of Civil Engineering, Alakh Prakash Goyal Shimla University, Shimla , Himachal Pradesh, India The base soil is one of the nature’s most common construction materials. Almost all types of construction are built with or upon the soil since centuries till today. The most important and effective part of a road pavement is sub grade soil, its strength and stability. If strength of soil is poor, then stabilization is normally needed. Sub grade is sometimes stabilized or replaced with stronger soil material so as to improve the strength. Such stabilization is also suitable when the available subgrade is made up of weak soil and hence has poor stability. Increase in the sub grade soil, strength may lead to economy in the structural thicknesses of a pavement. The most commonly used materials for soil stabilization are Cement, fly ash, lime, fibers, polymers etc. In the present study, an attempt has been made to improve the properties of the gravel soil by adding bitumen emulsion. An attempt has been made to use the emulsion for improving the strength of gravel soil expressed in terms of CBR values which may prove to be economical and give better results. In this study, the whole laboratory work revolves around the basic properties of soil and its strength in terms of CBR. A little cement added to provide better soil strength. It is observed that excellent soil strength results have been achieved by using cationic bitumen emulsion (CMS) with little quantity of cement used as filler. The appropriate mixing conditions for gravelly soil with CMS bitumen emulsion are being first attempted. This is followed by deciding four particular material conditions ...

Assessment of The Use of ICT By Distance Learning Students in The University of Ibadan, Nigeria

Research article of American Journal of Educational Research and Reviews Assessment of The Use of ICT By Distance Learning Students in The University of Ibadan, Nigeria ADEKUNJO, Olalekan Abraham (CLN)1, Stanley Omondiale Unuabor.

TOMOMOWO-AYODELE4 1Kenneth Dike Library, University of Ibadan, Ibadan, Nigeria 2National Institute of Construction Technology Library, Uromi, Edo State, Nigeria 3Ambros Alli University Library, Edo State, Nigeria 4Kenneth Dike Library, University of Ibadan, Ibadan This paper reviews the use of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) by students of Distance Learning Centre, University of Ibadan, Nigeria. There is no doubt that ICT is playing a vital role in Open and Distance Learning (ODL) in terms of enhancing the provision of immediate assistant to the learners for their academic and administrative needs in large scale. It has been established that services cannot be performed in distance learning centres using traditional institutional system all alone. Therefore, ICT tools application has been incorporated to meeting the requirements of learners at various phases of learning cycle viz the admission phase and other services. The heterogeneous requirements in open distance learning has culminated into issues and challenges needed to be addressed in usage of the technologies and the service(s) being provided through ICT. Survey research design with the aid of questionnaire was employed to elicit response from the respondents. Simple random sampling technique was used to select the sample size of this work. The effectiveness, stimulating factors, issues and challenges confronting ICT usage, purpose as well as other challenges encountered by staff and students of University of Ibadan DLC were emphasised. Recommendations were made based on the findings. Keywords: Open Distance Learning, DLC, ICT, Availability, Access control ...
