The radiometric analysis was done using a high-efficiency gamma-ray spectrometer. A total of thirty-seven (37) samples of ceramic tiles were pulverized, weighed accurately, and packaged in 250ml standard plastic containers, well labelled and stored for 28 days to attain secular equilibrium. Analysis of specific gamma energies from activities of <sup>232</sup>Th, <sup>238</sup>U and <sup>40</sup>K reported activity of 53.73±2.34 Bqkg<sup>-1</sup>, 43.17±3.40 Bqkg<sup>-1</sup>, and 525.99±36.10 Bqkg<sup>-1</sup> respectively. The variatiations in the radiation activity concetration is attributed to the composition of geological raw material used for tiles manufacturing. The average radium equivalent, absorbed dose, indoor and outdoor annual effective dose, and hazard indices (internal and external) obtained were 159.59 BqKg-1, 75.55nGyh<sup>-1</sup>, 0.28, 0.19, 0.54 and 0.43 respectively. The results obtained from the study showed that the use of ceramic tiles in Kenya does not pose any significant harmful radiation effects to users.</p> James Mugambi Linturi, James Ngundi Kitheka, Onesmus Maweu Copyright (c) 2024 James Mugambi Linturi, James Ngundi Kitheka, Onesmus Maweu Fri, 14 Jun 2024 00:00:00 +0000 Electronic and Structural Properties of an Undoped Sodium Iodide <p class="western" style="orphans: 2; widows: 2; margin-top: 0.21cm; margin-bottom: 0cm;" align="justify">This work investigated the electronic and structural properties of sodium iodide using the Density Functional Theory (DFT) method implemented in the quantum espresso code. The GGA (PBE) functional with exchange correlation was used. Convergence test for the kinetic energy cut-off, k-point and lattice parameter was carried out and the parameter generated was found to be consistent with the crystallography open data base input file of the sodium iodide. Band structure was plotted, and band gap was calculated to be 3.87 eV which was found to be in the category of a semiconductor but with high resistivity and low resolution. The plot of density of state was revealed that electrons may be scarcely found within some state in the sodium iodide crystal. The research shows that sodium Iodide can be effective as a semiconductor in the presence of dopants e.g., thallium which is often used in a radiation detection.</p> Solomon Tahiru Tonga; T.

Some of these samples were exposed to different intervals (10,20,30,40) days of gamma radiation using a <sup>226</sup>Ra source emitting 186 KeV ?-ray. For comparison purposes, the other diodes were kept without any irradiation. Results have shown all these thin films exhibit a hexagonal structure. However, there is a new (102-SiO<sub>2</sub>) peak appeared in the irradiated thin film pattern. The crystallite size of pristine and irradiated CdSe thin films were (26.9,25.8,28.4,35.3 and 22.2) nm respectively, whereas the average grain size of the pristine film was (112.3-29.24) nm whereas for the irradiated films (45.58-33.72) nm, (61.16-42.8) nm, (55.7-36.03) nm and (53.31-43.45) nm. Results also show that the band gap increased from 2.17eV for pristine thin films to 2.28, 2.45, 2.2, and 2.28 eV for the irradiated thin films. also, I-V characteristics show the dark current decreases for the irradiated thin films. The forward current under illumination increases when exposed to small gamma radiation values and then decreases with higher exposure values. In contrast, the reverse current increases with the irradiation.</p> Zainab Hammo, Laith Najam, Laith Al_Taan Copyright (c) 2024 Zainab Hammo, Laith Najam, Laith Al_Taan Sat, 15 Jun 2024 00:00:00 +0000 Solving Problem of Robotic Control of Advanced Missile Via Integral GuptaTransform <p>A new technique has been brought into play in this article for solving the second-order linear differential equation representing the problem of automatic or robotic control of advanced missiles. The problem of robotic control of the Advanced missile is one of the problems represented by second-order linear differential equations. The Integral Gupta transform (GT) has not at any time been put in an application to solve the problem of robotic control of the advanced missile. In the article, Integral Gupta transform (GT) has been brought into play to solve the problem of robotic control of the advanced missile and reveals that it is a constructive tool for solving such problems. The graphs of the solutions obtained are plotted to indicate the generality and clarity of the proposed method.</p> Rahul Gupta, rohit gupta rotu, Anupreet, Dinesh Verma Copyright (c) 2024 rohit gupta rotu Sat, 15 Jun 2024 00:00:00 +0000 Transverse deflection of sandwich beam with 2D-FG skins and ceramic core <p>The transverse deflection of a simply supported/clamped (SS/CC) sandwich beam with two directional functionally graded (2D-FG) skins and a ceramic core, namely SW2DC, is given under uniform load.

In the first part, thin films were prepared by doping carboxymethyl cellulose with Polyanionic cellulose low viscosity, with a concentration of 73% CMCHV and 27% PACLV, then CMC HV/PAC LV thin films were exposed to different X-ray photon doses (0, 200, 400, 600, and 800 cGy). But second Part were prepared the thin films by dissolving 8 g of CMCHV in 50 ml of distilled water, then adding NaCl and ZnONPs in concentrations (0.00, 11, 20, 27, 33 and 38%). The intensity of the direct current I was measured for all samples by changing the potential difference V at different temperatures (T). </p> <p> The measurement results of all samples studied in this research indicate that the conductivity and current density increase with an increase in the X-ray photon doses in the irradiated samples or with an increase in the concentrations of NaCl, ZnOPNs and also increases with increasing temperature, but the conductivity and current density increase more when NaCl is added than when ZnO PNs are added. By using these results, several areas can benefit, such as industry, scientific research, etc.</p> Najla Ali Copyright (c) 2024 Najla Ali Fri, 21 Jun 2024 00:00:00 +0000
