Earth-Based Construction Materials Reinforced with Tropical Plants and Recycled Waste Cellulose Pulp Fibre: Performance and Durability Assessment
Due to the growing concern of deforestation, renewable materials such as recycled cellulosic waste and non-wood fibres provide an alternative solution for partial replacement of wood resources as a reinforcement agent in ...
Suitability of Nigerian Barites for Drilling Mud Production and Sustainability of Artisanal and Small Scale Mining (Asm) of Barites In Nigeria
The aim of this dissertation is to contribute to efforts towards increasing the use of Nigerian barites in drilling mud production and other industrial applications. In order to achieve the above objectives, three projects ...
Degradation of Epoxy Composite Coating Using Corrosion and Fracture Mechanics Framework
This work presents the results of a combined analytical and experimental study of the effect of reinforcement on the corrosion and adhesion ability of epoxy coatings. Firstly the corrosion behavior of 5-hydroxytryptophan ...
Biomechanics Approach and Mechanical Biomarkers for Cancer Detection: A Case Study of Triple-Negative Breast Cancer
This thesis explores the cytoskeletal structures and the statistical variations in the cell-protein fluorescence intensities/volume densities, creep characteristics, and viscoelastic properties of non-tumorigenic breast ...
