Integrated Application of Organic and Inorganic Fertilizer to Improve Nutritive Quality of Maize and Soybean Intercrop

Research Article of International Journal of Natural Science and Reviews Integrated Application of Organic and Inorganic Fertilizer to Improve Nutritive Quality of Maize and Soybean Intercrop Almaz M. Gezahegn1 and M.M. Yusoff2 1Ethiopian Institute of Agricultural Research, 2300, Addis Abeba, Ethiopa 2Faculty of Agriculture, Universiti Putra Malaysia, 43400 Serdang, Selangor, Malaysia A field experiment was conducted to evaluate the use of integrated fertilizers on the nutritive quality of maize and soybean in intercropping system in 2014 at field 2, Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM) Serdang, Selangor, Malaysia. Fertilizer applications were either in the form of inorganic (NPK) or poultry manure (PM). Treatments comprised of combinations of three intercropping systems (sole maize, sole soybean, and maize + soybean) and four nutrient managements (control, 100% NPK, 100% PM and 50 % NPK + 50% PM). The experiment was laid out in a randomized complete block design (RCBD) with 3 replications. Results showed that intercropping maize with soybean significantly reduced protein and nutrient content of soybean; however, the oil content of soybean, sugar, oil, protein and nutrient content of maize were not significantly affected by intercropping. Sole and integrated application of NPK and PM increased the quality of both crops over control. Integrated application of 50% NPK and 50% PM fertilizer gave higher oil, protein and nutrient content of both crops. Use of 100 % PM gave better quality than the application of NPK fertilizer for both crops. This work was supported by Organization for Women in Science for the Developing World (OWSD) and Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA).

Design and realization of fault simulation software for cooling water system of marine diesel engine

Research Article of International Journal of Natural Science and Reviews Design and realization of fault simulation software for cooling water system of marine diesel engine LI Bao-yue, JIANG Guo-he, CHEN Bi-we Merchant Maritime College, Shanghai Maritime University, Shanghai 201306, China Aiming at the problems of high training cost and high safety risk in the training of marine diesel engine cooling water system operators, a mathematical model is established based on the technical parameters, working conditions and measured data of MTU20V956TB92 marine diesel engine cooling water system. The simulation software of diesel engine cooling water system faults is developed by using Visual Studio 2012 platform, which realizes from mathematical model to code. Conversion to simulate the working state of ship cooling water system in normal operation and failure. The results show that the system can accurately simulate the normal operation and fault state of the cooling water system, and improve the actual ability of the trainers to respond to the fault of the ship cooling water system.

Electric Vehicle Intelligent Service Cloud Platform

Research Article of International Journal of Natural Science and Reviews Electric Vehicle Intelligent Service Cloud Platform Peijun Jiang, Yiqian Gao, Ao Luo School of Electrical and New Energy, China Three Gorges University 43002, China In recent years, electric vehicles have developed rapidly around the world. A series of research and services for electric vehicles are also rapidly developing. Faced with the broad market demand, Yichang Ju Calling Company launched the intelligent charging and switching service cloud platform “Gathering”. Based on technologies such as Internet of Things, Internet, and big data analysis, the solution builds an intelligent vehicle cloud platform for electric vehicles. The intelligent cloud platform has an electric vehicle charging and reloading reservation, a next destination navigation charging and switching plan, and a private charging pile sharing. Charging pile inquiry and reservation, fee settlement, user community communication and other functions make the electric vehicle charging service platform more intelligent and convenient. At the same time, as a bridge between electric vehicles and charging stations, “Gathering” can combine the real-time electricity price, the degree of traffic congestion, the use of charging piles and the load of the power grid to plan more efficient and convenient charging suggestions for users. Make full use of power resources to reduce the load and cost of the grid. Keywords: Electric vehicle; Charging pile; Internet of things intelligent service ...

Study on the pollution mechanism of drinking water source water to ultrafiltration membrane

Research Article of International Journal of Natural Science and Reviews Study on the pollution mechanism of drinking water source water to ultrafiltration membrane Lv Jianxing, Geng Anchao, Wu Lingbing, Qiao Sha, Li Liuhuan Shanghai Maritime University, College of Marine Science and Engineering,shanghai, 201306,China The effects of particulate matter (represented by humic acid, kaolin and algae) on ultrafiltration membranes in micro-polluted water sources were investigated, and the mechanism of ultrafiltration membranes was further understood with the change of membrane flux and transmembrane pressure difference. The results showed that the removal rate of kaolin and algae by UF membrane was over 99%, while the removal rate of humic acid was only about 72%. Moreover, the extent of UF membrane fouling caused by humic acid was larger than that caused by kaolin and algae. The higher the concentration of humic acid, the more serious the membrane fouling was. Ultrafiltration membranes contaminated by humic acid were washed by 0.05mol/L NaOH alkali and 0.05mol/L HCL acid. The permeability of the membranes was restored to 91.24% of the cleaned surface, which was better than that of pure water, sodium hypochlorite and sodium hydroxide. It can provide better guidance for choosing appropriate cleaning agents for ultrafiltration membrane fouling. Keywords: Ultrafiltration membrane; Humic acid; Kaolin; Algae ...
