Pico cells are a small wireless communication base station covering a small area, often used to extend cellular network coverage to indoor or outdoor areas where signals can not easily penetrate, and also to improve data transfer throughput for mobile users and increase capacity in the mobile network.
Femto cells are a small cellular, low-power wireless access points, typically designed for use in a home or small business. Femto cells deliver significantly improved coverage inside homes, small offices, and outdoor public spaces. This means a stronger signal and better voice quality, plus improved data download and upload speeds.
The aim of this paper is to explain the effect of pico cells and femto cells to reduce the predicted path loss, this achieved by taking a different scenarios and using a MATLAB 2008a programming language to compare the obtained results.

journal of kerbala university, 2013, Volume 9, Issue 0, Pages 31-37

It is impractical for cement producers to test the produced cement after manufacturing process, because it is very difficult to correct the final production. Moreover, it is useful to make adjustment to the raw mix design through the blend process of raw materials.
Calcium sulphate is added in small quantities to the other constituents of cement during its manufacture to control the setting time of the product.Using a large scale data base, this paper shows an effort to model optimum sulphate required to be expressed in term of some concerned variables.
Statistical analysis using SPSS16 software is performed for a data base of 362 chemical and physical tests obtained from archive of quality control at Kerbala plant for SRC cement. These data sets are refined to 322 by excluding outliers to avoid errors in measurement, recording, and observations.
Stepwise regression results in a linear model that explains (99.8%) of variation in required sulphate in relation with: C4AF, C3A, and K2O, while excluding one explanatory variable (Na2O) according to a degree of significance of (0.05).The developed model can be used as a guide for manufacturer to control the content of; K2O, C3A, and C4AF that result in an optimum sulphate content of SRC cement.

journal of kerbala university, 2013, Volume 9, Issue 0, Pages 38-40

We know that a right R-module C is flat if and only if every short exact sequence O→A→B→C→O of right R-modules is pure. Dually a right R-module A is coflat if ever short exact sequence O→A→B→C→O of right R-modules is copure. Co flat modules are defined in several ways, (as shown in [2] and [4]), In this paper it has shown that these definitions are equivalents. And we shell prove that every direct sum of coflat modules is coflat.

Gentamicin is an important aminoglycoside, natural or semisynthetic antibiotic commonly used against the life threating infections in human. Nephrotoxicity is the major side effect of aminoglycosides. The aim of this study is to investigate the protective/ prophylactic roles of garlic oil against gentamicin-induced abnormalities in metabolic biochemical parameters in serum and tissues of female albino rats. In this study, we used 30 Wistar albino 230-250 g female rats. The animals were randomly divided into five groups. Each experimental group consisted of six animals.Control group, they were fed with only standard rat diet and tap water for 2week. Garlic Oil: Rats were treated daily with a dose of5 ml/kg Garlic Oil(GO) via gavage, and received was start of the 5day of the experiment. Gentamicin: Rats were treated daily with a dose of 100 mg/kg gentamicin(G) asintraperitoneal(IP) at 5 day of the experiment. Gentamicin + Garlic Oil: Rats were treated with synchronisedintraperitoneal gentamicin plus garlic oil 5ml/kg every day via gavage at 5 day of the experiment. Garlic Oil (Pre) +Gentamicin: Rats were treated with 5 ml/kg/ every day via gavage garlic oil in start the first day of the experiment and then gentamicin received at the above-mentioned dose at 5 day of the experiment.a significant increase in serum levels of glucose, bilirubin, urea and creatinine as well as the activity of the AST, ALT, LDH, and ALP enzymes were observed in rats treated with gentamicin for a period of ten days. However, supplementation of gentamicin- intoxicated rats with garlic oil ameliorated the gentamicin adverse effects as evidenced by a significant increase of serum total protein content, and a decrease of serum glucose, bilirubin, urea and creatinine levels, as well as the activity of AST, ALT,LDH and ALP enzymes. Histopathological changes in liver and kidney were not observed on animals treated with Garlic oil when compared with the control group .However, animals treated with gentamicin showed fibrosis, necrosis, and fatty infiltrate in liver and showed necrosis and degeneration of glomerulus in kidney. This effect was significantly decreased in animals pretreated with garlic oil.

A Modeling Approach Towards Improving Compliance of Treated Water Quality to Reduce Manpower and Chemicals

Alaa Husaeen Wadie

journal of kerbala university, 2013, Volume 9, Issue 0, Pages 118-128

In water treatment processes, the individual unit operations are complex, highly non-linear and poorly understood. Whilst many models have been developed to improve process understanding, these are rarely in a form easily exploited by the control engineer. Attempts to improve the performance of water treatment works through the application of improved control and measurement have had variable success. This paper investigates the application of feed forward control on the clarification process of a small-scale pilot plant. The application aimed towards maximizing the efficiency of the chemical coagulation process. To accomplish this, a simple computer program written in Visual Basic version 6 models to achieve the process operating conditions. Mathematical models based on historical plant data covering 18 months were analyzed by stepwise multiple regression analysis. The following parameters were important determinants of coagulant dose and pH control reagents: river turbidity, pH, temperature, total dissolved solids, and plant flowrate. A predictive equation was developed from the data, of the form:
Al2(SO4)3 (mg/L) = a*Q + b*Turb + c*TDS + d*pH + e*Temp + f
While for adjusting pH, whether lime or soda ash are added, the pretreatment of water supplies involves decreasing the acidity, to soften, and to clear drinking water. Calcium oxide (CaO), commonly known as quicklime or burnt lime. The addition of lime is with the form:
CaO (mg/L) = j + k *pH
The addition form for sodium percarbonate Na2CO3 is:
Na2CO3 (mg/L) = m + n*pH
The program was designed as an aid, so the user can still customize and optimize the computer suggested design. Users are able to move forward in adjusting or optimizing the design in minutes, which is difficult for manual system.
This system is very powerful tool in improving compliance of treated water quality to reduce manpower and chemicals. This is the underlying concept behind the development of this work and to facilitate the organizations and individuals with better understanding on how their actions can have a direct impact on the treatment.

Ahmed Hassan Ali

journal of kerbala university, 2013, Volume 9, Issue 0, Pages 145-153

Dye pollutants produced from the textile industries are becoming a major source of environmental contaminations. Approximately 150 tonnes every day is estimated to be released into the aquatic environment all over the world. The release of those dyes in the aquatic environment is a considerable source of non-aesthetic pollution and these dyes are also resistant to aerobic degradation, and under anaerobic conditions the dyes can be transformed into carcinogenic aromatic amines.
This research reports on photocatalytic treatment of a hazardous indigo carmine dye in wastewater. The photocatalytic degradation was carried out in the presence of the catalyst TiO2. The effect of catalyst dose, pH and initial dye concentration on the degradation process has been assessed. The aqueous dye solution was degraded in a photochemical reactor in presence of UV light (365nm) along with suspended TiO2 particles. 100 ml of dye solution (25ppm) was subjected to degradation under UV light. Different concentrations of TiO2 photocatalyst (0.25, 0.50, 0.75, 1.0 and 1.25g/L), different pH values (4, 7, 9, and 11) and different concentrations of indigo carmine dye (5, 10, 25, 50, 100 ppm) were employed for the present study. The chemical oxygen demand (COD) reduction at optimum conditions was examined. The degradation of the dye was confirmed from the disappearance of peak at 608 nm.
