An elephant tooth is one of the biggest illegal market in the world and it is one of the main reasons why there are illegal killing elephants. So far it has been difficult for the world to trace this market and destroy it completely because the market is done in secret and it is very hard to stop illegal hunters because most of them use different sophisticated methods. And while we are working to figure out a way for the elephants to be safe, illegal hunters keep killing one elephant that only gives only two pieces of teeth.

This project is about proposing a method that kills this illegal market by irradiating the selling product because if there is ...

Seismic isolation is a technique that has been used around the world to protect building structures, nonstructural components, users and content of this structures from the damaging effects of earthquake.

In addition to buildings, seismic isolation can be used for the protection of crucial structures such as bridges, LNG tanks, offshore platforms, nuclear and other power plants as well as military installations etc.

My innovative idea focuses mainly on the application of passive seismic isolation for buildings.

In general, isolators are classified into two categories: elastomeric and sliding bearings.

Traditional, elastomeric and lead-rubber seismic isolation bearings provide isolation only from the horizontal components of ground shaking. Similar to elastomeric bearings, the vertical stiffness of lead-rubber bearings is typically thousands ...

This self powered generator is based on the energy cycle from electrical to mechanical and back to electrical. This generator will use a brushless motor, esc, capacitor battery, li-ion battery, arduino and 240v 2kva alternator.

Here is how all it works: the brushless motor is powered by a 36 volt li-ion battery and an  electronic speed controller (esc). The motor runs on about 5,000 rpm and 3,000 on drag. The brushless motor drivers the ac motor generating power in two forms, dc and ac. The dc winding will be set to 40v output in order to power the brushless motor. On the dc output the power will be rectified and passed through a capacitor battery to power the brushless ...

Initial design consideration calls for a manually pumped, separating flush toilet similar to a modified manual marine toilet. Subsequent iterations may be suitable for Pour-flush toilets of the seated and squat-plate types.

Operation of the flush mechanism initially pumps flush water to impart turbulent motion to feces in the toilet, further operation of the mechanism suctions the toilet contents through an static mixing chamber and Joker-valve and into the main pump body. The return stroke forces the contents of the main pump body through a second static mixing chamber and Joker-valve, then into a Self Stirring Mesophilic Anaerobic Reactor.

The Self Stirring Mesophilic Anaerobic Reactor consists of a 2-chambered vessel, of equal portions connected at the bottom in such a manner ...

The concept is based around septage waste but can utilize other wastes such as manure, grease, crop waste, etc. The system would utilize existing technologies in a way to treat waste with three core objectives: the system would be self-sustaining requiring no external power or water supply, removing recyclable or reusable material from the waste stream for reuse, and sustain a profit. The system and processes are based around a typical anaerobic digestion waste treatment process, utilizing sustainability practices and further refining technologies to process the waste into reusable materials, such as; biogas, biofuel, biosolids (sludge), clean effluent water. All of these byproducts could be utilized on-site and/or sold for profit.

This innovation of this idea is not the ...

NASA Langley Research Center has developed a compact self-tuning damper to reduce vibration occurring at a fixed frequency. Tuned dampers reduce vibration of the base structure by the dissipation of energy. The magnitude of the dissipated energy is proportional to the range of motion. The NASA damper design allows the slider mass to achieve 2x-3x greater range of motion than that found in conventional devices. This enables 4x-9x more effectiveness for the same size and weight; or the same effectiveness for a 4x-9x decrease in weight. The damper is self-tunable and can be adjusted in effectiveness. The damper can be made small enough for use in wind tunnel tests or scaled up to large sizes, like those used in ...

The concept was to amalgamate physical geography, renewable energy and mechanical machinery for industrial usage, utilizing the turbine returning energy back to the power grid.

Turbine capabilities include thermal exchange of sensible heat via internal micro condensers, as well as supplementing a triple pull generator system for self powering efficiency.

The renewable energy created by the "Shade Maker" would go directly back to the power grid.

The entire surface of the wind turbine would consist of voltaic cells to capture sun light, creating another source of energy to be utilized for either the turbines self powered generators or the underground pumps.

This concept can be used in the oil and agricultural ...

Illegal immigration is very critical matter in many countries and there have been many technological attempts to block or monitor illegal immigrants like using drone and sensors. But none of them are found to be reliable so the most technologically advanced country is building a wall which is the oldest technology humans created. But this wall structure whether it is metal or concrete has its drawbacks. Metal structure wall can be cut with home tools and concrete can be destroyed with acid. Since the wall are built in remote areas illegal immigrants has the time to operate on the wall to get in the country. So no matter it is strong it can be bypassed as seen in the ...

Building a house has come easy nowadays because the technology of mankind has reached an advanced stage of technology in science and research. To build a house material election is critical based on the purpose it is built. There are 10 basic types of wall when constructing a house: poured concrete, masonry (brick or stone), stucco, synthetic or artificial stucco, wood (shingles, shakes or planks), metal (steel or aluminum), vinyl, asphalt shingles, tile (slate or clay) or fiber cement (planks or panels). All of them have their own advantages based on the purpose of the house it is built. One of the main critical of the selection of materials for building a wall is the location of a house. ...

Desert regions are excellent places to generate solar power, as the sun shines directly and uninterruptedly during the day. These areas are also the most dusty places in the world due to the prevailing drought. The sand and dust particles clearly hinder the generation of electricity, as the sun's rays are deflected or obscured. PV and CSP system operators are thus forced to constantly clean the surfaces of solar systems with water in order to minimise yield losses. Otherwise they are threatened with yield losses of up to 1 percent per day if the collector surfaces are not cleaned.

But this again causes enormous O&M costs, because water is a precious commodity in desert regions. At least because the ...
