Thermal imaging with drone

Most methods use 2D thermal images because they are easily obtainable. However, the proposed procedure for 3D model reconstruction in this paper can provide helpful support in making interpretation and evaluation of thermal data more automatic, faster and objective. Contrary to other methods, thermal imaging can work in environments without ambient light. It can penetrate obscurants like smoke, haze, and fog. The paper will address the challenge of 3D reconstruction from images of thermal infrared (TIR). It seeks to demonstrate that commercial computer vision software may be used to orient the sequence of TIR images from a drone and produce 3D point cloud without having to acquire any GNSS/IN...

Proposal for the Improvement of Risk Indicator Management and Cost to Quantify Strong Building Design

Proposal for the Improvement of Risk Indicator Management and Cost to Quantify Strong Building Design Proposal for the Improvement of Risk Indicator Management and Cost to Quantify Strong Building Design Risk Indicators are crucial tools in risk management and are utilized to augment monitoring and alleviation of risks and facilities risk reporting. Buildings that are subject to vertical (uplift) and horizontal (seismic) forces are bound by great risks especially in areas with frequent geographical phenomena like earthquakes, rock shifts, and tremors. Therefore, great emphasis should be placed on the improvements of risk indicator management and the costs that are allocated to the process. The...

Sustainable Concrete

Sustainable Concrete Name University Abstract The research on sustainable materials has mainly been based on wastes from industrial processes and recyclable materials and how they can be used in construction. The primary objective has been to ensure the utilization of materials that ensure the preservation of the environment, save materials and ensure that the materials used are durable. Some of the cementitious components used are rice husk ash, silica fume and fly ash and have been shown to make concrete more durable. Sustainable concrete requires little energy, leads to minimize waste production, is made from materials that exist in abundance in nature, is made with recycled or recyclable...

Result and analysis

Result and analysis of Energy Audit in Saudi Arabian Mosque Results and Analysis The identification of the energy baseline and infrastructure benchmarking has facilitated the provisioning of potential for energy saving in the Al-Noor Mosque. This section will focus on different energy saving opportunities through simulation of different scenarios and EEM models. It is also of vital importance to assess the performance of the mosque based on different engineering design along with operational strategies by the utilization of data gathered in energy audit of Al-Noor Mosque. The relationship between the climatic changes in Jeddah and its impact on the energy utilization is also of importance considering...

Reading Comprehension

Name Instructor Course Date Assessment in reading comprehensions This discussion focuses on Test of Reading Comprehension-4th Edition (TORC-4) and The Woodcock Reading Mastery Tests-3rd Edition (WRMT-3). Both tests are applied in reading assessments and identification of students who have difficulties in comprehensions. TORC-4 is applicable from grade 2 through to grade 12 whereas WMRT-3 is used from as early as grade K to grade 12 (Pierangelo & George 25). The administration period for both tests is roughly the same as they both require 45 minutes on the higher end and can take as little as 15 minutes in the case of WMRT-4. WMRT-3 comprises nine exclusively administered tests that...

Name: Instructor’s Name: Course: Date: Politics in the Film Malcolm X Over the years, the film industry has become popular and influential in modern society. The film industry has provided entertainment for the people during their leisure time, but the mode has changed and thus focused on highlighting the social and political life of the Americans. Therefore, the media attempts to demonstrate the important cultures about the people such as racial representations. Indeed, movies have explored the quest for legitimacy and the need to displace and quell fears about the complex ideologies of racial representations (Winn 452). The film Malcolm X is important in understanding the political aspects...

The people of Kerala and Water Issue

Abstract The people of Kerala are a perfect source of information to facilitate the identification of the water shortage incidence in the area. The people can also provide adequate as well as accurate information related to the incidence of water shortage across the area. In so doing, the people can facilitate the generation of effective research findings, solutions, and recommendations to address the water shortage problem in the area. To complete the data collection process, the people were approached through an NGO active in the efforts to improve water accessibility for the residents of Kerala. Since the NGO has a notable level familiarity with the people and their challenges, it was used to help...

The novelty of cinematic romance

The Novelty of Cinematic Romance The question of whether the novelty of cinematic romance has been lost in the 21st century has raised controversies. As modernity takes over from the traditional society, new things have emerged that suggests that the novelty of the cinematic romance is taking a new turn. Ideally, in the past, cinematic romance exhibited a dominant male who had control over a submissive female (Fausto-Sterling, 2000). In such societies, women were deemed inferior to their male counterparts, and this gave the cinematic romance novelty as roles were clearly defined across the gender lines. Thus, it was possible for the dominant male to use his masculinity to seduce and manipulate a...
