Paper Title: Mapping Solar Pond by GIS and Analytic Hierarchy Process
Prepared by: Mohamed Ali Nower
Description:

In terms of the importance of solar radiation sustainability in Egypt, this research was initiated with the objective of mapping solar ponds to provide solar energy by Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and multi-criteria decision-making method to ensure their efficiency, in terms of cost. Primarily, literature in the field of solar ponds and clean energy was assembled, reviewed, analyzed and categorized to deduce data about solar pond locations and analyze such data. Accordingly, different variables were considered such as power line stations, ...

Paper Title: Mix Design Guidelines for Concrete Produced Using Portland cement Types Manufactured According to Recent Cement Standard Specifications
Prepared by: Mohamed Ali Nower
Description:

Recently issued Portland cement specifications allow producing Portland cement with different types, compositions, andgrades that differ from those conventionally produced and used before issuing these specifications. Available mix design methods arebased on the conventional Portland cement manufactured and used before issuing these specifications. This triggers the need to developmix design guidelines based on the different types of cement that become available according to the recently issued cement specifications,therefore the current study has been initiated.In the current study, 156 different concrete mixes were developed, designed, and carried out experimentally in order to develop designguidelines for the concrete mixtures having cements with different types (Ordinary Portland Cement (CEM I) and blended cement withdifferent additions of limestone and slag (CEM II)),
