INTELLIGENT PIPELINE MONITORING SYSTEM BASED on INTERNET of THINGS
Tomiwa Pudens Ayeni, Bosede Aina Ayogu

Abstract: The constant pipeline vandalism in Nigeria by oil saboteurs has continued to cause the nation billions of dollars every year. This act is affecting the economy of the most populous black nation and if an urgent solution is not devised, it is capable of bringing the nation to its knees. Although the Nigerian government had in the past devised different strategies to stop the act, unfortunately, most of the strategies rolled out seem to be reactive and obsolete. Internet of Things (IoT) is the technology that can help the nation monitor its pipeline facilities efficiently. To this end, we consider how IoT could be used to monitor pipelines flops in advance. This paper reviews the strategies used by oil saboteurs to steal crude oil from the nation's oil and gas pipeline facilities, highlights the strategies currently used by the Nigerian government to monitor the nation pipeline facilities, the challenges associated with the strategies and how IoT could be used to detect, control and monitors oil pipelines in an efficient manner.

Daylighting and Energy Performance of PVSDs;
Mai A. Marzouk, Mostafa Atwa

Abstract: Nowadays, many countries are putting in efforts to reduce the energy consumption of buildings by adopting initiatives aimed at the development of net-zero energy buildings. These initiatives endorsed the growing interest in using building integrated photovoltaics (BIPV) as a means of achieving their aims. The adoption of PV in new or existing buildings does not only help reduce energy demand of the buildings but also increase the energy supply from renewable sources. In addition, in hot arid climates, where solar irradiation reaches its highest levels, solar protection through shading devices is required and effective for buildings’ proper functionality. Consequently, integrating PVs as shading devices could result in the double benefit of electricity production coupled with solar protection. In this paper, the integration of PV as a shading element was quantitatively studied. The study was conducted on an educational space that is highly glazed, which results in excessive overheating and visual discomfort. Therefore, the approach of improving the energy efficiency of the space by applying a PVSD on the south and east façades was adopted at 4 different tilt angles (-15°, -20°, -25° and -30°) for each orientation. The study aims to achieve the optimal balance between daylight availability, energy consumption and generated energy of the PV surfaces. The study was conducted using Rhinoceros, Grasshopper 3D, DIVA for Rhino and ArchSIM software for modelling purposes and simulation processes to reach conclusions about the optimum tilt angle and orientation of PVSD for the case of Cairo.

Usman Tijjani

Abstract: Routine immunization contributes significantly in the reduction of childhood mortality among children through vaccination against preventable diseases in Nigeria, (WH0,2017). This study seeks to assess the determinants of Childhood Routine Immunization coverage in Sokoto State. Findings from the research study indicates that routine immunization coverage is still very low in Sokoto State when compared with the national target of 80% coverage (RI Strategic Plan 2013-2015). Also, this research discovered that about half of the children in Sokoto State, Nigeria are partially or not immunized at all. This clearly indicates that about half of children born in Sokoto State have not received pentavalent vaccine by the time they reach their first birthday. The challenges of immunization coverage in Sokoto State is attributed to Mothers/Caregivers inability to take their child to the health facility, unaware of immunization schedule, unaware of immunization need, absence of vaccinators, forgetfulness, no need felt, fear of AEFI, unaware of place and time, no faith/belief in immunization, lack of vaccines at the health facilities. The study recommends that government should make an extra effort to sensitize caregivers and counseled them on the significance of taking their children to health facilities for vaccination.
