Know-How Contracts and Its Warranties

journal of kerbala university, Volume 3, Issue 3, Pages 18-29

The technology researches is one of the characteristics of the twenty one century, since the technology has hold a paramount importance in the economies of all the countries including the underdeveloped countries which are collecting all the efforts to transfer all kinds of technology to the various aspects of its life. Since the technology is a collection of technical information, so the Know –How contracts (the method by which the countries bring the technology to its borders) has raised many legal problems about its legal qualification, and this difficulty stems from the subject matter of these contracts which then reflects upon the specialty of the warrantees given to the importer of technology.So that this research is an intensive attempt to give accurate qualification for the Know-How contracts , by either classifying them as one of the named contracts or contracts having a dual legal nature which then enable us to determine the warrantees of the importer according to the qualification adopted.

journal of kerbala university, Volume 3, Issue 3, Pages 12-20

The semi-empirical equation of Bohm (DB) doesn’t take into the account the fluctuation properties of plasma parameters in the plasma. So, the Bohm formula did not explain the diffusion behavior caused by instability. The 1/16 factor in Bohm formula represent the relation between the diffusion and the instability that causing it. Therefore, the Bohm factor studied as instability factor (C), this factor derived into two turbulence cases (strong and weak turbulence).The results of this factor was tested with experimental results in Q-machine and shown good results. The diffusion coefficients are drived according to this instability factor for strong and weak turbulence cases.

journal of kerbala university, Volume 3, Issue 3, Pages 33-54

The Nd:YAG laser system has been mounted and the BDN-I dye was prepared and dissolved in different pure organic solvents such as ( carbon-tetra-chloride , chloroform, Acetone, Dioxane , and pyridine ) and in a mixture of carbon–tetra- chloride with another polar organic solvent at 1:1 and 2:1 mixing ratios. The dye solution was situated in a dye cell ,and modulated inside the laser resonator . The giant laser pulse power , and the dye solution transmittance (T) have been measured. The (T) values are utilized in calculation of the optical properties such as (Reflectance (R ), Absorptance (A) and refractance ( r) ), some indices as optical density (d) , refractive index (n), relative refractive index (nr).The effect of the variation Of the BDN-I molar concentration dye solution and mixing ratios have been studied on the optical properties firstly , the effect of the optical properties on each other secondly ,and finally , the effects of the BDN-I dye solutions optical properties on the giant laser pulse characteristics. It can be concluded that the relative refractive index (nr ) has an important role in controlling the passive Q-switching process by specifying the optical properties of the BDN-I solution. The main conclusion that the mixing method of carbon-tetra-chloride with other organic solvent at different mixing ratios is the best way to improve the giant laser pulse characteristics, where it decreases the optical properties which causes the losses of stimulated photons energy, and increases of that which causes consolidations the saturation absorption process.

The effects of short range correlation are taken into account in an effective way, that is, expressing the ground state wave function in terms of the occupation probabilites of singl particle orbits for various closed and open shell nuclei with N=Z.
The effect of the SRC's and the occupation probability ( ) of higher states on the ground state 2BCDD's and the root mean square charge radii are investigated. It is found that the inclusion of SRC's leads to enhance the probability of transferring the protons from the central region of the nucleus towards its surface since this causes to reduce the central part of the 2BCDD's significantly and increases the tail part of them slightly and consequently leads to increase the calculated values of for 4He, 12C, 16O, 28Si, 32S and 40Ca nuclei. Considering the effect of higher occupation probabilities and the effect of SRC's are important in getting good agreement between the calculated 2BCDD's.

Traffic Conflict Technique: A Tool for Traffic Safety Study at Three-leg Signalized Intersections

Hussein Ali Ewadh; Sahar Safaa Neham

journal of kerbala university, Volume 3, Issue 3, Pages 130-140

Traffic accident data are the principal tool for identifying degree of safety at traffic system. In situation of no reliable accident record, traffic conflict technique TCT is a suitable alternative aid. This paper aims at studying the traffic safety at three-leg signalized intersections using TCT.
Three different sites of three-leg signalized intersections are selected according to specified criteria. The data concerning; traffic volume, traffic conflict, are collected using video camera. Spot speed and some of the geometric characteristics (lane width, median width, and availability and length of auxiliary left lane), are determined and measured due to observation at site.
A developed model shows that, an extra increase of traffic conflicts can be represented by negative exponential trend in relation with approach traffic volume. That negative exponential model shows a better explanation rather than linear model. On the other hand, developed models are introduced to indicate the traffic conflict rate in relation with some geometric characteristics. Further, a statistical analysis of extracted data of previous works in sites of four-leg signalized intersections reveals that no significant dependency of traffic conflict occurrence, in relation with approach traffic volume, with the type of signalized intersection (three or four legs). In addition, it is found that, linear relation explains increasing variation (97.8%) of total hourly traffic conflict in relation with total stopped delay time. This may reveals that the potential conflict increases when drivers argue from unacceptable delay introduced due to the traffic operation at the intersection.

Loay E. George; Najem A. Najem; Duaa Deyaa

journal of kerbala university, Volume 3, Issue 3, Pages 141-146

Mathematical framework of the inverse transform from image coordinates to geographic coordinates was developed and investigated. This transform was utilized to estimate the unknown parameters of the satellite imaging system using some of the data extracted from the raw images that produced by the imaging system. A sequence of determinations based on some geometrical relationships between the angular separation of the satellite projection point (nadir points) and a sequence of uniformly distributed reference points were used for autonomous assignment of the initial values of the imaging system parameters. Also, an estimation procedure is given to assess the value of the satellite distance, and an equation for estimating the value of image scale parameter was derived and implemented. Optimization used to improve the determination accuracy. Through each optimization step the value of one of the imaging parameters is adjusted leads to minimize the overall error. The optimization methods have been implemented as two layers. The suggested system was implemented on two sets of Meteosat and Noaa images, and the results justified the suitability of the proposed system.

journal of kerbala university, Volume 3, Issue 3, Pages 152-158

Positronium annihilation lifetime spectroscopy is a powerful prope that ia used in the study of free volume in polymers. In this work we study the positronium annihilation lifetime spectra in polymers contain free volume and in pure polymers. The spectra that generated contain single Gaussian component fixed at 400ps convoluted with three lifetime components (τ1,τ2 and τ3) and considering τ1 originated from annihilation of para-positronium, τ2 originated from annihilation of positrons in matter and τ3 originated from annihilation of ortho-positronium in free volume also the background fixed at 0.001% of peak. Also study the effect of mean value of free volume size and its concentrations by study the effect of intensity of long-lived component (I3) the theoretical spectra were compared with experimental spectra for polystyrene sample and we discussed the differences. We notice that as the long-lived component increase the right hand side of the spectrum rise. The difference between the experimental spectrum and the generated spectrum arises from that the background and time-zero channel in the generated spectra considered to be constant, but in experimental spectra, these parameter varied with thermal influences. Moreover the generated spectra described by single Gaussian component. The separating of 0.1 ns difference in lifetime components give specific description for positronium annihilation lifetime in polymers, also the difference of 5% in intensity give distinguished separating in the spectra, and these give distinguished components which have small intensities in experimental spectra . There are clear difference between positronium annihilation lifetime spectrum in pure polymers and positronium annihilation lifetime in defective polymers (contain free volume), this due to the effect of concentration and size of free volume on the spectrum. The small resolution (400ps) give a clear separation in smallest lifetime components (τ1 ,τ2 ) and smallest intensities in the generated spectra.

journal of kerbala university, Volume 3, Issue 3, Pages 170-182

The application of the spatial statistical technique (kriging) is used in this research, for the spatial analysis of groundwater levels is shown. The data set consists of groundwater levels measured at about 13 hand dug wells were selected in the studied area for the observation water table (vary for ten month, from June 2002 to March 2003 ) in an area of 20x20 km2 Dibdiba hydrologic basin; which lies between Karbala and Najaf provinces. With the use of measured elevations of the water table, experimental semivariograms were constructed that characterizes the spatial variability of the measured groundwater levels. The experimental semivariograms were fitted into many models as Spherical, exponential and gaussian semivariogram. The finally selected models were used to estimate the groundwater levels and estimation variance (which express the accuracy of the estimated groundwater levels) at the nodes of a square grid of 2.5km x 2.5km and to develop corresponding contour maps .Also, used the Inverse Square Distance (ISD) method in order to interpolate the groundwater levels for the study area. It was found that ISD method resulted in higher errors as compared to kriging method. The groundwater table maps resulted by kriging method were compared with the groundwater table maps prepared using the ISD method.

The Effect of Solar Magnetic Field on The Measured Integral Energy Spectra of Solar Electrons , Protons and X– Rays

journal of kerbala university, Volume 3, Issue 3, Pages 168-179

Observations provided by the satellites NOAA/GOES [GOES11&12] during November,2006, have been used to study the effect of solar magnetic field on the integral energy spectra of the emitted solar electrons, protons and the generated x – rays in the corona region of the sun.
The results indicate that, the increased value of Kp causes great loss in the emitted electrons, due to the shitted back process towards the Sun s chromosphere , which causes also the reduction in the generation of X-rays flux, whiles the spectra of the emitted high energy protons shows an increament with respect to that of the low energy protons , due to the effect of magnetic field.
The study shows also that,the relation between Hp and Kp is of random behaviour,and there was no existence for a systematic mathematical relation.

Studying the Distortions produced caus from Additive Noise Removing From Digital Images using mode Filter

journal of kerbala university, Volume 3, Issue 3, Pages 189-200

Noise accompanying to different imaging systems is the most complex Problems that stand agaianast the image analytic and concluding information , so the benefit was few .Imaging systems don't give perfect ideal images , but they often give images with limited clearaness (i-e they don't give images with sharp edges) . The important image information and details are contained in the image edge regions , so the estimation of image quality must not taken generally for all image plane without recognize the important image regions .Most image evaluation measurements don't depend on determining image edges quality and its sharpness , but depend on general evaluation for all image plane . In this paper we shall examine the image quality by calculate the contrast , entropy , and the mean square error in the image edge regions , also find the quantity measurements to evaluate the image goodness and then the efficiency of different processing for digital image .We depend on effects of image smoothing to remove Gaussian noise by using (average filter mode filter) and determine the amount of blurring in the image .

Improvement of Al-20%Sn Microstructure by Using New Rheocasting Process

journal of kerbala university, Volume 3, Issue 3, Pages 307-319

New Rheocasting process is used to produce Al-20%Sn alloy for modernity of this alloy and its potential importance in industry, particularly the parts that need high wear resistance. A casting of dimensions 6x6x12 cm was chosen, having V/A ratio of 1.2 and mould inclination of 75º.The casting produced at different pouring temperatures ranging from Tm+10-50.The cooling was done from different temperatures within the freezing rang of the alloy between liquidus and solidus lines, to study the effect of their variables on the shape and size of grains. The microstructure shows the possibility of producing equiaxial grains along the cross section of the casting when the pouring temperature was 640ºC and cooling at 550ºC. The decreasing in the pouring and cooling temperatures helped to increase the refining degree of the grains to approach the equiaxid shape .The average size of the grains was 45 μm while the average volume fraction for the primary phase was 0.662-0.656 .The hardness test showed the casting produced by new rheocasting achieve higher hardness values of 37HB in comparison with gravity die castings refined by using Al–10Ti. This work appearances the development in ultimate tensile stress and elongation of the castings which achieved by new rheocasting processes (UTS 108 MPa & 13% Elongation) comparing to gravity casting (UTS 95 MPa & 8% Elongation).
