An Efficient Approach forRequirement Traceability Integrated With Software Repository
P. M. G. Jegathambal, P. Sheela Gowr

Abstract: Traceability links between requirements of a system and its source code are helpful in reducing system conception effort. During software updates and maintenance, the traceability links become invalid since the developers may modify or remove some features of the source code. Hence, to acquire trustable links from a system source code, a supervised link tracing approach is proposed here. In proposed approach, IR techniques are applied on source code and requirements document to generate baseline traceability links. Concurrently, software repositories are also mined to generate validating traceability links i.e. Histrace links which are then called as experts. Now a trust model named as DynWing is used to rank the different types of experts. DynWing dynamically assigns weights to different types of experts in ranking process. The top ranked experts are then fed to the trust model named as Trumo. Trumo validates the baseline links with top ranked experts and finds the trustable links from baseline links set. While validating the links, Trumo is capable of discarding or re-ranking the experts and finds most traceable links. The proposed approach is able to improve the precision and recall values of the traceability links.
Keywords: Traceability, requirements, features, source code, repositories, experts.

Variations in Groundwater Flow Potential in Parts of Imo State, Niger Delta Basin, Southeastern Nigeria
C. A. Ahiarakwem, G. I. Nwankwor, E. S.Chinemelu, Paschal, C. C.

Abstract: Groundwater flow potential of ten water boreholes in parts of Imo State were determined principally from their transmissivity values. The results indicates that the aquifer thickness range from 36 to 50m while the hydraulic conductivity varies from 10-1 to 10-4 m/s. The transmissivity values of the aquifer rocks varies from 311.04 to 388,072m2/ day. Although the study area is underlain by the same geological formation (Benin Formation), the groundwater flow potential varies from moderate to high. The highest groundwater flow potential (388,800m2 /day) was obtained at Futo while the lowest (311.04m2/day) was obtained at Uratta. The groundwater flow potential of the study area in decreasing order is: Futo 5> Nekede 1 > Ihiagwa 4 > Aba Rd>8 > Njoku sawmill > Concorde > Aladinma > Naze > Amazu > Uratta 3. The study area is segmented into two: areas characterized by moderate potential and those that has high groundwater flow potential. Uratta- 3 and Amazu wells are characterized by moderate groundwater flow potential while the rest are characterized by high potential.
Keywords: Aquifer Rock, Transmissivity, Hydraulic Conductivity, Borehole and Groundwater Potential.

Identification of Groundwater Prospective Zones Using Geoelectrical and Electromagnetic Surveys
Sajeena, S., Abdul Hakkim, V. M., Kurien, E. K.

Abstract: Groundwater resources play a major role in ensuring livelihood security across the world. Utilization of groundwater reservoir as a viable source for meeting drinking and domestic water needs is safer and economical than surface water, as groundwater is available everywhere and is generally uncontaminated. As a result groundwater investigation has assumed top priority in recent years. Groundwater is usually held within porous soils or rock materials. People all around the world face serious water shortage because of the over exploitation of groundwater for domestic, industrial and agricultural purposes. It is estimated that (2003) around seven billion people out of the projected 9.3 billion in the entire world will face water shortage and out of these, 40% will face acute water crisis. The annual replenishable groundwater resources in India is estimated as 432 BCM out of which 398 BCM is available for utilization leaving aside 34 BCM for natural discharge. Groundwater contributes 60% of the total irrigated area of the country and plays a significant role in irrigation development. Presently the overall stage of groundwater development is 58%, however there exists a significant regional variation in its development.

Predicting Functional Regions in Genomic DNA Sequences Using Artificial Neural Network
Günay Karlı, Adem Karadağ

Abstract: A promoter which frequently appears before its associated gene in DNA sequence governs the expression of genes. In order to locate a gene in a given sequence, researchers have to find the location of a promoter. Thus, the problem of promoter identification is of major importance within biology. So this issue is still open. In this study, we employ ANN (Artificial Neural Network) classifier to predict promoters of DNA sequences, and evaluate their performances. The obtained results show that the classifier competes the existing techniques for identifying promoter regions.
Keywords: Promoter prediction, ANN, data mining, bioinformatics, DNA.

Design and Evaluation of Gravity-Fed Perforated Tube Drip Irrigation for Dry Season Irrigation of Citrus Sinensis
Obot E. Essien, Michael I. Essien

Abstract: Gravity-fed, perforated-tube drip irrigation system was designed and applied to irrigate sweet orange (Citrus sinensis) in the dry season which the fruit tree is highly vulnerable to marked reduction in growth, yield and fruit quality. The aim was to utilize scarce quantity of water for root contact irrigation efficiently. Small surface tank size for supply of water, orifice discharge, number of drip pipes, discharge flow rate and root zone volume of available water were computed; and depletion rate of water was profiled. Plot-scale pilot testing of the drip system gave a very high water use and application efficiency (95%). Soil moisture analysis showed adequacy of moisture content, hence available water distribution. Predictive functions of the height and girth weekly growth rate using test measured data gave very high coefficient of determination (R2=1.0). Application on field scale.
Keywords: Drip irrigator design, Gravity-fed irrigation, Citrus sinensis, Soil moisture application efficiency, Sustainability.

Abstract: In this paper we develop a system dedicated to the objective characterization of dysphonia chronic laryngeal origin. The purpose of this system is threefold: diagnosis, treatment and monitoring of patient. For that we design an experimental protocol which consists of the recording and the archiving of the acoustic voice signal by means of the software environment Audacity which makes it possible to deliver a temporal signal under format WAVE. Our contribution consisted of the implementation, under the Visual Basic environment, of an algorithm that allows performing the analysis of a spectro-temporal acoustic voiced speech signal in this case the vowel "a" sustained for three seconds. We applied this algorithm on 10 healthy subjects and 10 pathological subjects of whose 7 with cancer of the larynx, one with chronic laryngitis and one presenting an inflammatory polyp of the vocal cords. The results obtained show a variability of spectro-temporal characteristics between healthy and pathological subjects and prone pathological between them according to the nature of the lesion in particular with regard to spectral content evaluated by Short-Time discrete Fourier Transform STD.FT, Disturbances in the medium term STD, Disturbance of short-term speech signal (jitter) and the fundamental frequency Fs averaged over several frames of the voiced signal.
Keywords: STD, STD- FT, dysphonia laryngeal, voiced sound; jitter, fundamental frequency.

Time Truncated Chain Sampling Plans for Inverse Rayleigh Distribution
Dr. A. R. Sudamani Ramaswamy, S. Jayasri

Abstract: A Chain sampling plan is developed based on truncated lifetimes when the lifetime of an item follows a inverse Rayleigh distribution. The design parameters such as the minimum sample size and the acceptance number are obtained by satisfying the producer's and consumer's risks at the specified quality levels, under the assumption that the termination time and the number of items are pre-fixed. The results are illustrated by an example.
Keywords: Chain sampling plan, Consumer's risk, Inverse Rayleigh distribution, Operating characteristics, Producer's risk, truncated life test.

Conception and Development of a Tele-Medical Interface Dedicated to Tele Monitoring of the Renal and Cardiacinsufficiency
L. Badir Benkrelifa, M. Benabdellah

Abstract: Heart diseases are particularly common in patients with kidney disease. Renal failure patients are more likely to die of heart failure than reaching the stage of dialysis. The kidney is one of the most sensitive to hypoxia bodies. Hypoxemia can be downloaded monitored by photoplethysmography (PPG), which is based on molecular absorption spectrophotometry in the infrared. Photoplethysmography is more advantageous than biochemical methods such as dosage uremic or creatinimec given its non-invasiveness and character embedded system enabling remote continuous monitoring of chronic renal failure. Given the correlation of the heart and kidney failure we thought the achievement of a technical platform capable of simultaneously monitoring of cardiac function and renal function through the respective records of myocardial electrical activity by electrocardiography (ECG) and pulsed oxygen saturation of hemoglobin by infrared spectrophotometry. To do this we designed and implemented a technical platform comprising:
-An electro cardiographic amplifier dedicated to the tele monitoring of cardiac function.
-A photoplethysmograph infrared dedicated to the tele monitoring of renal function through an estimate of the pulsed concentration of ox hemoglobin (HbO2) reveals a possible hypoxemia harmful to chronic renal failure and particularly those hemodialysis.
Keywords: Photoplethysmography, Electrocardiography, Spectrophotometry, Microcontroller, Telemonitoring & TCP/IP.
