2 Development of a Ginger Splitting Machine ABSTRACT A ginger splitting machine was developed based on the physical and mechanical property data of two ginger varieties namely Tafin Giwa (yellow ginger) and Yatsun Biri (black ginger) The main purpose of the passive solar design strategy is to maximize the potential for abundance of solar radiation to improve the heating/cooling of buildings One of them is by utilizing the stack ventilation strategy Solar Chimney (SC) is a technology that utilizes this effect

Study of the effect of wind speed on evaporation

[1] In an effort to develop methods based on integrating the subsurface to the atmospheric boundary layer to estimate evaporation we developed a model based on the coupling of Navier‐Stokes free flow and Darcy flow in porous medium The model was tested using experimental data to study the effect of wind speed on evaporation The model consists of the coupled equations of mass conservation
