|Industrial Growth in Ethiopia–A Review|
Ethiopia is one of the land-locked countries in Africa. By African standards, Ethiopia is a potentially wealthy country, with fertile soil and good rainfall over large regions. Ethiopia possesses several valuable minerals, including gold and platinum. Unlike most sub-Saharan African countries, Ethiopia's resources have enabled the country to maintain contacts with the outside world for centuries. Since Ethiopia doesn't manufacture automotive, construction machineries, machine tools and agricultural equipment's locally at present, it imports those from various countries of the world. Ethiopia claims that there are lots of resources available in the country. It is true the country has treasure of resources which are not being fully utilized or explored. There is a need of industrial growth in the country. This paper is in relation to develop industries in the country by developing industrial zones, estates, techno craft guilds and enhancing private management capacity. In the present situation industries such as manufacturing of machineries and equipments, automobiles spare parts treated as non-resources based industries and the Govt. pays little attention for these industries. But now Ethiopian Govt. with Industrial Master Plans (IMP) lay the foundation for the development of the manufacture sector, which quickly became the leading growth sector of the economy. These depend the development of the manufacturing sector which led to increased value-added activities, enhanced productivity, greater industry linkages as well as growth of manufacturing related services. Utilizing the resources and the techniques available, it is possible to produce the various engineering products of the daily needs. In developed countries in the mass manufacturing industry; they are using latest equipment and improved methods in process to produce the quality goods. Similarly it is possible to produce the same items maintaining the same quality here by using the proper tooling with the equipment available. As it is in the country all the necessary goods are imported from the other countries spending lot money and time. The country is depending on the other source. The country is still under developed it is true, but how long it will continue this stage, here all the required resources are available and skilled labour, so only will power is lacking. Today the world is advancing, and emerging into new heights of growth. Growth is required for everyone hence it is the time to utilize the resources available start producing the products to meet the demand of the domestic market and later international market. The countries industrial and commerce bureau has to look at the newly industrialized countries performance and how they are progressing day by day, adapt similar industrial policies of them and implement the policies in a phased manner. If look at the present condition of industry and current situation of the industries in Ethiopia, it is a long way to go and takes more time, but right decision at right time will help in progressing.

|Effect of Temperature on Biodegradable Solid Waste Digestion|
The study was carried out to find out the effect of temperature on biodegradable solid -waste digestion. Objectives of the research was "Study thermophililic conditions for biodegradation‟ and to "Study control conditions for biodegradation‟. Present study shows that high temperature favored fast biodegradation. Complete degradation of the solid waste was observed when water at temperature 80C was passed through the tube. degradation was slow almost equal to the control (without and temperature control). The results are expressed in the form of graph and compared with the control. In the case of 80C the degradation rate has showed slight increase after 4 days of incubation. It may be due to acclimatization of the microorganisms during degradation. In the case of control after 17 days of incubation total degradation was about around 5.7 cm. and the total degradation in the case of no temperature was about 2.5 cm, for 17 days, and total degradation rate in 30 days control without addition of any external temperature was about 4.1 cm. This experiment clearly indicate that temperature controlled reaction was faster than that of without any additional temperature , this means high temperature favored the faster degradation.

|Assessment of Optimal Multinodal Bilatral Transaction In The Competetive Electricity Market|
In recent years, the development in the deregulated electricity market structure increases the number of market participants thereby, creates the market more competitive. It is important for the independent power producer (IPP), independent system operator and bulk power customer to know and select the least cost transaction. In this paper, a method for selecting the optimal multi-nodal bilateral transaction for the IPP based on the estimation of maximum allowable load of the buyer buses and on the transaction transmission pricing is proposed. Estimation of maximum allowable load of the buyer buses used to assess the feasibility of each transaction and also help to create profitable and buyer attractable seller price bid. In the context of electricity market, transmission pricing is an important tool to determine the optimal multi-nodal bilateral transaction for the IPP at different seller buses .In this thesis, both embedded cost transmission pricing and incremental cost transmission pricing (short run marginal cost) is considered for the estimation of transaction transmission cost. The proposed method is demonstrated and analyzed for the considered multi-nodal bilateral transaction on 6 bus system and IEEE 30 bus system

|The Mechanics of Electron-Positron Pair Creation in the 3-Spaces Model|
This paper lays out the mechanics of creation in the 3-spaces model of an electron-positron pair as a photon of energy 1.022 MeV or more is destabilized when grazing a heavy particle such as an atom's nucleus, thus converting a massless photon into two massive .511 MeV/c2 particles charged in opposition. An alternate process was also experimentally discovered in 1997, that involves converging two tightly collimated photon beams toward a single point in space, one of the beams being made up of photons exceeding the 1.022 MeV threshold. In the latter case, electron/positron pairs were created without any atom's nuclei being close by. These two observed processes of photon conversion into electron-positron pairs set the 1.022 MeV photon energy level as the threshold starting at which massless photons become highly susceptible to become destabilized into converting to pairs of massive particles.

|Advancements in Multi-Criteria Decision Making Based on Interval-Valued Intuitionistic Fuzzy Set|
Multi-criteria decision-making (MCDM) problem is the process of finding the best option from all of the feasible alternatives where all the alternatives can be evaluated according to a number of criteria or attribute. Since human judgments including preferences are often vague and cannot estimate his preference with an exact numerical value. Multi-criteria decision-making problems usually consist of uncertain and imprecise data and information. To deal with vagueness/imprecision Atanassov‟s intuitionistic fuzzy set  has found to be highly useful and they are successfully applied to the field of multi criteria decision making problems. Later on, integrating interval valued fuzzy sets with IFSs; Atanassov introduced the concept of interval valued intuitionistic fuzzy sets (IVIFSs) . As a generalization of an intuitionistic fuzzy set, it is more flexible for IVIFSs to deal with uncertain and fuzzy problems. There are many situations in multi attribute decision making where IVIFS theory is more appropriate to deal with. In this paper we will review all the major contribution done in the area of multiple attribute decision-making based on interval-valued intuitionistic fuzzy sets (IVIFSs) theory.

|Strength of Binary Blended Cement Composites Containing Corn Cob Ash|
The strength characteristics of binary blended cement composites made with Ordinary Portland Cement (OPC) and Corn Cob Ash (CCA) were investigated in this work. 105 concrete cubes and 105 sandcrete cubes of 150mm x 150mm x 150mm were produced at percentage OPC replacement with CCA of 5%, 10%, 15%, 20%, and 25% and crushed to obtain their compressive strengths at 3, 7, 14, 21, 28, 50, and 90 days of curing. The 3-28 day compressive strength values of OPC-CCA binary blended cement concrete were found to be much lower than the control values; the 50 day strengths were comparable to the control values; while the 90 day strengths were higher than the control values especially at 5-15% replacements of OPC with CCA, ranging from 24.00N/mm2 for 15% replacement of OPC to 27.00N/mm2 for 5% replacement of OPC compared with the control value of 23.60N/mm2. This same trend was observed for OPC-CCA binary blended cement sandcrete. The variation in density was not significant. Mathematical models were developed for predicting compressive strengths of OPC-CCA binary blended cement composites using polynomial regression analysis. The model values of compressive strengths obtained from the various model equations were found to be either exactly the same as those of the equivalent laboratory values or very close to them, with differences ranging from 0 to 0.3N/mm2. Thus, OPC-CCA binary blended cement composites could be good for civil engineering works and the developed model equations can be used to estimate their strengths for various curing ages and percentage OPC replacement with CCA.

|A Novel Method for the Elimination of Dead Time in Two Level Voltage Source Inverter|
Dead time is a short delay introduced between the gating signals of the upper and lower switches in an inverter leg to prevent the short circuit of dc link. Such dead time results in a change in f undamental voltage and also causes low frequency distortion. In this paper , a novel method for the elimination of dead time in two level voltage source inverter is proposed and implemented. This method reduces the low frequency distortion and results in a steady fundamental voltage. The validity of this method has been studied by the PSPICE Simulation and prototype experiment.
