DIYALA JOURNAL OF ENGINEERING SCIENCES, Volume 5, Issue 1, Pages 1-12

ABSTRACT:- This paper introduces a proposed method for hybrid 2D wavelet transform,
and applies this method on the field of lossless image compression method. Wavelets in 2D or
higher dimensions are often generated by a decomposition scheme from 1D wavelets. There are
two decomposition schemes; the standard (rectangular) and the nonstandard (square)
decomposition. A hybrid 2D wavelet transform is a result of mixing these two decompositions in
order to improve the compression performance and compression ratio.

DIYALA JOURNAL OF ENGINEERING SCIENCES, Volume 5, Issue 1, Pages 13-24

ABSTRACT:- Programming robots is a useful tedious task, so there is growing
interest in building robots which can learn by themselves. This paper describes the
Reinforcement Learning and teaching approach like Queue Learning (Q-Learning) to be
implemented for robotics technology environment navigation and exploration. Q – Learning
algorithm is one of the widely used online learning methods in robotics; it is simple, efficient,
and not need to complex process as in adaptive system. The aim of this work is to empower
the agent to learn a certain goal directed navigation strategy and to generate a shortest path in
static environment which contain static obstacles; it uses one of the important intelligent
search methods the “heuristic”. It makes a necessary modification for the search algorithm to
suit the way of solving the problem. In our approach of learning from demonstration, the
robot learns a reward function from the demonstration and a task model from repeated
attempts (trials) to perform the task. A simplified reinforcement learning algorithm based on
one-step Q-Learning that is optimized in speed and memory consumption is proposed and
implemented in Visual Basic language (VB). The robot can be built using stepper motors and
any available microcontroller like 89c52 with its driver circuit to utilize of their matching.

DIYALA JOURNAL OF ENGINEERING SCIENCES, Volume 5, Issue 1, Pages 25-39

ABSTRACT:- The effect of steel fiber on the deflection of self- compacted slabs under
fire (6000c) was investigated in this study. Three specimens were tested experimentally and
numerically ( by using sophisticated finite element programme ANSYS 7.0) to determine the
deflection of these specimens under two point load after burned under (6000c) in a tested
furnace for four hours. Numerical study by using ANSYS programme is performed to
calculate the critical temperature and the temperature through the slabs with steel fiber
content of (0%,0.2%, and 0.5%). Another six model slabs with steel fiber content of (0.5%)
were studied numerically by using ANSYS 7.0 to investigate the effect of arrange of
parameters on the fire performance of self- compacted steel fiber reinforced concrete slabs.
The main factors that influence the fire resistance of self- compacted steel fiber reinforced
concrete slabs are: slab thickness, concrete cover thickness , moisture content.
The experimental results showed that the deflection of burned slab with steel fiber of (0.2%)
decreased to 30% than the deflection of burned slab without steel fiber under the same failure
load. While the deflection of burned slab with steel fiber of (0.5%) decreased to 50% than the
deflection of burned slab without steel fiber under the same failure load. On the other hand ,
the deflection results were checked with finite elements method by using sophisticated finite
element programme (ANSYS 7.0) and it was found that the results were acceptable and the
difference was not more than 9%. The results from thermal analysis showed that the
temperature decrease with the increase in the concrete depth of the self compacted steel fiber
reinforced concrete slabs, while the critical temperature for the slabs with steel fiber of
(0%,0.2%,0.5%) were (2500c, 3500c, 5800c) respectively.
Parametric study results showed that the slab thickness dose not have significant effect on
the fire resistance of the self compacted steel fiber reinforced concrete slabs, while concrete
cover thickness has a significant effect on the fire resistance of the self compacted steel fiber
reinforced concrete slabs. Fire resistance increases with an increase in the moisture content of
the concrete in the slabs.

DIYALA JOURNAL OF ENGINEERING SCIENCES, Volume 5, Issue 1, Pages 79-87

ABSTRACT:- On-line Arabic handwritten character recognition is one of the most challenging problems in pattern recognition field. By now, printed Arabic character recognition and on-line Arabic handwritten recognition has been gradually practical, while offline Arabic handwritten character recognition is still considered as "The hardest problem to conquer" in this field due to its own complexity. Recently, it becomes a hot topic with the release of database, which is the first text-level database and is concerned about the area of realistic Arabic handwritten character recognition. At the realistic Arabic handwritten text recognition and explore two aspects of the problem. Firstly, a system based on segmentation-recognition integrated framework was
developed for Arabic handwriting recognition. Secondly, the parameters of embedded classifier initialed at character-level training were discriminatively re-trained at string level. The segmentation-recognition integrated framework runs as follows: the written character is first over-segmented into primitive segments, and then the consecutive segments are combined into candidate patterns. The embedded classifier is used to classify all the candidate patterns in segmentation lattice. According to Genetic Algorithm (Crossover, mutation, and population), the system outputs the optimal path in segmentation-recognition lattice, which is the final recognition result. The embedded classifier is first trained at character level on isolated character and then the parameters are updated at string level on string samples.

Sami Ali Nawi ALazzawi

DIYALA JOURNAL OF ENGINEERING SCIENCES, Volume 5, Issue 1, Pages 103-116

ABSTRACT:- In this study a numerical procedure was proposed for the design a die bending to study the effect of springback which influences the bending process and its relationship with other parameters such as friction coefficient, bending load, die geometry, sheet thickness, Young modules, and stress level. Using available finite element program
code( ANSYS .11) 3- Dimension ax symmetric model of semi conical shells was used to solve problems with material and geometric nonlinearities including large elastic- plastic strains and obeying bilinear isotropic hardening law. The result compared with analytical solution and showed that the best bending variables for producing completely product without failure are found as initial bending force = 12 KN, coefficient of friction = 0.1, the cone angle = 30 deg. So the springback increases inversely with young modulus and is normally compensated for by over bending the part also can bend at elevated temps to minimize springback A high value of stress and strain appears to be a good indicator to assess whether forming operation will be successful or not. The theories results were compared with Numerical solution and showed that a good agreement was compared with old research

DIYALA JOURNAL OF ENGINEERING SCIENCES, Volume 5, Issue 1, Pages 117-137

ABSTRACT:- Analysis of reinforced concrete beams strengthened by prestressed CFRP sheets has been investigated in this paper. A three dimensional finite element analysis ANSYS computer program (version 9.0) was conducted to obtain the response of the strengthened beams. The eight –node brick elements(solid 65) are used for the idealization of concrete while the CFRP sheets are idealized by using three-dimensional layered elements (solid 46).The steel plates are idealized by using three dimensional solid elements (solid 45).Five beams are analyzed in study ,four with prestressed –CFRP sheets and one with nonprestressed- CFRP sheet. The effect of different level of prestress ,induced by prestressing the CFRP –sheets, on the cracking loads and flexural stiffness of the strengthened beams are studied. It is found that the cracking load and the flexural stiffness are significantly increased as the level of prestress increased. The response of the strengthened beam under cyclic loads is also conducted in terms of deflection versus number of cycles which is related to the cyclic
behaviour of the constituent materials used in the beam ( concrete , tension steel, and CFRP sheets).
The deformation of each these materials under cyclic loadings is presented in terms of measured strains as a percent of the number of cycles of fatigue. The results obtained from finite element analysis are compared with available experimental results and the comparison gives good accuracy.
Keywords: Prestress ,CFRP, strengthened, cracking loads, flexural stiffness ,cyclic loads.
1- INTRODUCTION
The strengthening of reinforced concrete beam by means of externally bonded fiberreinforced
plastic (FRP) sheets has gained great attention in recent years because the
strengthening technique by using(FRP) sheets presents several practical advantages due to an
easy installation on site, great geometrical flexibility, high strength-to-weight ratio, good
durability, fatigue resistance and low creep (Hollaway and Leeming 1999) [1]. Although
bonding a FRP sheet to a beam can increase its ultimate strength, the sheet does not
significantly change the cracking load or the behaviour of the beam under service load.
However, by prestressing the sheet, the laminate is used more efficiently since it contributes
to the load – bearing capacity under both service and ultimate conditions. Several studies
were made to investigate the behaviour of the strengthening beam by externally bonded FRP
with or without prestressing. Triantafillou and Deskovic (1991) [2 ]reported an analysis of the
problem of providing the maximum achievable prestress level without experiencing a debonding
failure in the end zone. Triantafillou et al. (1992) [3 ] verified their analytical model
by performing

DIYALA JOURNAL OF ENGINEERING SCIENCES, Volume 5, Issue 1, Pages 172-180

ABSTRACT: Orthodontic tooth movement is a physiologic response to externally applied forces; the motive forces are primarily mechanical. The optimal application of orthodontic force enables maximum movement of teeth with minimal irreversible damage of the periodontal ligament (PDL), alveolar bone, and teeth. Since arch wires are the main force
system in orthodontics, it is important in clinical practice that they deliver appropriate, predictable and repeatable forces during treatment. These specialized wires even promise shape memory properties and the possibility of super elastic behavior, which significantly
impacts clinical practices. Since, standard stainless steel and titanium arch wires are still the materials of choice in many stages of treatment. They provide an attractive combination of stiffness, resilience and formability. However, clinical practitioners have commented on the variability of arch wire behavior for years. Inconsistent arch wire properties can contribute to unpredictable treatment duration and results.
This paper examines the mechanical and physical characteristics of stainless steel and titanium wires to quantify their variability in engineering terms. From the results for both types of wires, the testing method provides the information required by designers wishing to
improve the arch wire properties and provide valuable information to clinicians for their practice.

DIYALA JOURNAL OF ENGINEERING SCIENCES, Volume 5, Issue 1, Pages 205-220

ABSTRACT: This paper presents the evaluation of Poly(Methyl Methacrylate) or PMMA additive used in Iraqi lubricating oils to improve the characteristics of gasoline engine lubricants. Primarily, the viscosity with viscosity index improvement, represent the indicators
for the evaluation of this type of additives under the influence of engine temperature. The lubricants used in this work, after manual addition of PMMA, were prepared by mixing the Iraqi base oils of grades 150H & 60H (equal amounts of each type) with percentages 100%, 90%, 80%, and 75%, respectively. These prepared mixtures of lubricating
oils – additives were operated 4 hrs in engine of type "air cooled, 4-stroke, single cylinder, gasoline engine 3kw". The tests, were conducted for lubricant temperature during engine running, oil viscosity, viscosity index, and weight of debris (not analytic), on each sample of prepared lubricants.
The results confirmed that the most suitable lubricating oil for gasoline engine; either in summer or winter; was the mixture of 25% PMMA with 75% mixed base oil, with difference percentage not exceeds more than 6% between these two seasons, since it has lower increment of viscosity and lower VI decrease, with the presence of low amount of the
debris (weight percent). This debris can indicate damages to the engine components, for long time engine operation. Finally, the benefits involved that the PMMA was low affected with the increase of engine temperature, according to its bounded properties.
