    Design and development of mechanical timer for livestock pellet conveying
    (2015)
    Muhammad Ifwat Ahmad
    A mechanical timer for feeding pet function is not a new technology afterall. In current industrial modernization world, the cost of living is keep increasing and the dependency of electricity is high, and almost everything nowadays is relying on electricity to work. Though with that fact, factories throughout the country are using electronic timer in their manufacturing world, as well as farmers in their agricultural world. While some farmers are yet to be self labour work to do feeding livestock and watering the plant. Therefore as engineer-to-be, I would like to produce a mechanical timer which suits the functions in agriculture sector, in which in is not dependant on electricity and water sources anymore, so it will be truly portable without any piping or wiring needed if any relocation is needed. The mechanical timer consists of three main parts, the supply, the return, the pivoting timer with feeding function. The supply is just a container which will provide marbles, with gate function to confirm one marble flow at a time. The return will be a forward-reverse pivot, or a rotating wheel in which will carry marble back into supply container, and the pivoting timer will control the time intervals. The working object throughout the system are marbles of 400 pieces. It is choosen because of its spherical shape which is good at moving linearly or in circular, small in size, strong in collisions and high availability in the market. The size and amount of working object is important as it will affect the sizing of everything this mechanical timer required for each part.

    Analysis of time domain reflectometry parameters for XLPE cable diagnostics
    (2015)
    Nur Arina Awang
    This project puts forward a guidance to analyse and set appropriate parameter of Time Domain Reflectometry (TDR) system in order to diagnose the test cable. TDR is equipment that functions to detect fault in cables. Certain parameters likes pulse amplitude and pulse width need to be varied based on the suitability of the cable to be tested. As the test cable, XLPE insulated type is chose due to the well application of it in both power transmission and distribution. Those cable need to be maintained to ensure the well performance in preventing negative impact on customer's side.

    Mechanical properties of masonry brick prism utilizing reservoir sediments
    (2012)
    Mehran Nikzad
    The sedimentation of damps over years causes large capacity lost of the damps that will affect the efficiency of public water supply, flood control, irrigation and hydropower. How to best dispose of or utilize the dredged sediment remains an important challenge due to lack of disposal area. In this paper has argued that using the sediments to produce interlocking brick can be one of the best methods to help a waste material to become a useful construction material. This research set out to find out Mechanical properties of masonry brick prism utilizing reservoir sediments by determining Compressive Strength, Modulus of Elasticity, Poisson's ratio and Deflection of masonry brick prism.

    Design and development of small inner wall pressed robot for pipe inspection
    (2015)
    Muhammad Aliff Ishak
    This thesis presents the design and development of the small inner wall pressed robot for pipe inspection. This project is important to ease the inspection process for small pipe diameter since the available inspection robot in the market does not suitable for small pipe diameter inspection. With this new inspection robot, the inspection process in small pipe diameter can be proceed smoothly and able to inspect any defects such as corrosion, leakages and cracking within the pipeline. The design requirements such as robot diameter, movement ability and image acquired have been the guidance for the design process. The key component of this robot is the lifting mechanism which is important for the movement ability in vertical direction. From the analysis, all of the major component such as magnetic wheel, lifting mechanism, driving mechanism and motor selection are having no problem to achieve the design requirements for this project. Each of the major components such as body parts and lifting mechanism has been fabricated by using the 3D Printing from CAMARO LAB. of Universiti Tenaga Nasional and was assembled together with the other component which acquired from others place. From the testing that has been conducted, all of the design requirements and objectives have been successfully achieved. Despite of that, some of the recommendations for the future design of the robot are needed to improve the ability of the robot in inspection process. Last but not least, this project is important for the inspection process, not only to ease the process but also to bring the application of the inspection robot move further forward.

    Design and development of modular pipe inspection robot
    (2015)
    Gunaseelan Kalia Arse
    The title of the is development of a modular pipeline inspection robot system. The aim of this project is to design, develop, fabricate and test a modular robot for inspection of internal pipe of boiler. The modular robot is used to inspect any defect, blockage, crack or pitting in the pipe. All this inspection is done by using a camera attached in front of the modular robot. Generally this modular robot is a carrier type robot which have camera onto it. The scope of the project is to inspect an internal pipe of size varies from 2 inch and above. This modular robot can move through in any complicated angles and sizes of the boiler tubes. The changes in the diameter can be either drastically fast or slow but it must not be less than 2 inch
