Pages: 1 to 9 R.Rameshkumar, A. Arunagiri and V. Kanna Abstract: This paper presents an environment to support the development of actionable knowledge (knowledge that is used to create value) within the classic management systems. In order to successfully assist an organization in creating new actionable knowledge for a management consultant must be aware of a

Pages: 19 to 34 Ahmed A. Abdelwahab Abstract: This paper proposes a new speech data compression technique based on a new speedup algorithm using Vector Runlength Coding (VRLC). VRLC is proposed and software implemented for speech speedup based on some speech specific properties both in the temporal and transform domains.  The successful implementation of VRLC

Pages: 35 to 46 Mohammed Q. Al-Odat, Abdulamjeed Saeed Al-Ghamdi and Abdullah H. AlEssa Abstract: The combined effects of Joule heating and viscous dissipation on transient Magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) free convective flow of an incompressible electrically-conducting viscoelastic second-order fluid over a vertical surface are investigated numerically. The governing non-linear dimensionless equations are solved using an implicit finite difference

Pages: 47 to 56 Hazim Moria, Firoz Alam, Harun Chowdhury and Aleksandar Subic Abstract: Aerodynamics is considered as one of the decisive factors in elite sports competitions. By streamlining the athlete’s body configuration in fluid, aerodynamic or hydrodynamic resistance can considerably be reduced. In swimming, it is claimed that by utilising the full body swimsuit, the

Pages: 57 to 63 Haider M. Al-Juboori, Mohammed Z. Al-Faiz and Raad A. Khamis Abstract: The fundamentals of free electron laser (FEL) theory are now well–established and can provide a sophisticated description of experiments over a wide range of parameters. While new technology is being developed for systems working from 1mm to 10nm wavelengths, the theory

Pages: 64 to 76 Ammar Rouaiguia and Mohammed A. Dahim Abstract: Collapsible soils consist of loose, dry, low-density materials that collapse and compact under the addition of water or excessive loading. These soils are distributed throughout the world, specifically in areas of young alluvial fans, debris flow sediments, and loess (wind-blown sediment) deposits. The basic

Pages: 77 to 87 Ahmad Falah Abstract: In this work we focused on the synthesis of new Open Schiff bases were prepared by condensation of salicylaldehyde with both  4,4′-diaminodiphenyl methane,4,4′-diamino diphenyl sulphide,and condensation of O-vanilin with diethyl ester of terephthalic acid respectively, and also were prepared New Macrocyclic Schiff Bases by condensation of 1,6-dibromohexane with
