Note on the effect of cross-sensitivity in the determination
(University of Nairobi,, 1971)
The concentric Mohr circles of modified apparent strain, true strain and stress permit quick visualisation and calculation of true strains and stresses from readings of gauges with known cross-sensitivities
Voltage controller for radial distribution networks with distributed generation
(University of Nairobi, 2014-03)
This paper presents a coordinated network controller whose objective is to maintain an optimal voltage profile across radial distribution networks with distributed generation. This is done by varying the output of the ...

The main aim of this research is to map tea plantations within three tea processing factories (Kionyo, Kinoro, Imenti) in South Imenti Constituency. Further analysis is done to evaluate the number of tea bushes and tea ...
Impact of Land Use /Cover dynamics on Streamflow: A Case of Nzoia River Catchment, Kenya
(University of Nairobi, 2010)
Degradation of watershed areas in Kenya’s basins is on the increase and is currently a major concern for the government. The main causes of watershe d degradation stem from the abuse and poor management of forests ...
Application of gis in optimization of solid waste collection route: a case study of Runda Estate In Nairobi
Collection and transportation of municipal solid waste (MSW) are vital elements of solid waste management system. They account for over 60% of operation costs. The cost of collection and transportation process include ...
Housing strategies in Kenyan towns and dweller-initiated transformations-Case estates from Nairobi
Housing demand in Nairobi city has exceeded her rapid population growth culminating in shortage, contributory to informal settlements, and now increasingly attributed to dweller-initiated transformation in formal housing. ...
A seasonal air transport climatology for Kenya
(University of Nairobi, 1999-06)
A climatology of air transport to and from Kenya has been developed using kinematic trajectory modeling. Significant months for trajectory analysis have been determined from a classification of synoptic circulation fields. ...
Direct Shear Box And Ring Shear Test Comparison: Why Internal Angle Of Friction Vary
The direct shear box and the ring shear test as conventionally used for measuring the strength parameters of soil for use in classical stability analyses have the major disadvantage that the stress conditions in the ...
