SIRMIP network is composed of a mechanical and a telemetric sensing system. SIRMIP network consists of, among others, 230 rain gauges and 137 thermometers.</p> <p>Rainfall and air temperature data have been interpolated on a 1 km-resolution regular grid using Inverse Distance Weighting (IDW) spatial interpolation. Temperature data were further processed through a linear regression using elevation from a high-resolution digital terrain model (DTM).</p> <p><strong>Results:</strong> The generated dataset described in this paper consists of 228 monthly- and 19 annual-spatially distributed maps of rainfall and air temperature.</p> 2019-08-26T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Study of Energy of Formation for FexNi1-x Liquid Binary Alloys 2019-09-28T07:35:46+00:00 M. S. S. Chowdhury Mohammad A. Rashid M. A. Rahman A. Z. Ziauddin Ahmed <p>In this present study we have systematically calculated the free energy of formation for Fe<sub>x</sub>Ni<sub>1-x</sub> binary alloys at a thermodynamic state T = 1920 K. A microscopic theory bases on first order perturbation theory along with a reference hard sphere liquid has been applied. The interionic interaction is described by Bretonnet-Silbert local pseudopotential that capable of takes into account the s-d hybridization in electro-ion interaction in transition metals. The effective hard sphere diameters have been determined using linearized Weeks-Chandler-Andersen (LWCA) perturbation theory and the partial structure calculated in line with Ashcroft and Langreths original work. The calculated theoretical value and available experimental data for free energy of formation are in agreement quite satisfactorily.</p> 2019-08-21T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Study of (p,n) Reaction in a Wide Energy Range 2019-11-09T05:36:47+00:00 N. A. El-Nohy M. N. El-Hammamy S. Diab A. M. El-Shinawy <p>In this paper, the quasi-elastic scattering (p, n) reactions are studied for a wide range of target nuclei <sup>13</sup>C,<sup> 14</sup>C,<sup> 48</sup>Ca,<sup> 90</sup>Zr and <sup>208</sup>Pb and different incident energies (35-160 MeV). The phenomenological Optical model potential and density independent approaches are used for these calculations in comparison with density dependent semi-microscopic approach. The density dependent parameters are modified to achieve the best calculations for many targets at different energy levels.</p> 2019-11-06T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Effect of Deformation on the Mechanical Properties of Sn-5wt%Sb Alloy 2019-11-09T11:17:54+00:00 Sadiq H. Khoreem Abdo M. Meftah T. T. Alnahari <p>Sn–5wt%Sb is one of the materials considered for replacing Pb-bearing alloys in electronic packaging. The mechanical response of Sn–5wt% Sb solder alloy has been tested under different strain rates and three deformation temperatures. The behavior of true strain–time of Sn–5wt% Sb solder alloy has been investigated over strain rates of and deformation temperatures of 313, 333, and 353 K. Three-load creep tests were carried out at each temperature for of the wire samples to alloys. The deformation behavior and grain growth mechanism were investigated by strain-time curve analysis and microstructure observations. The results obtained show that the general characteristics of strain-time curve and microstructure of Sn-5wt% Sb alloy sensitively depend on the deformation temperature and strain rate. New free grains have been nucleated in microstructures in the process of dynamic recrystallization. These grains grow during deformation, forming coarser structure and elongation. The dynamic recrystallization and grain growth increase with increasing deformation temperature and decreasing strain rate. From the steady state creep rate the stress exponent is described in terms of the heat treatment temperatures. The stress exponent (n) were determined to clarify the deformation mechanism. Based on the n values, it is suggested that the rate controlling creep-deformation mechanism is dislocation climb. This study revealed that the solder alloy Sn–5wt%Sb have potential to give a good combination of higher creep resistance and rupture time.</p> 2019-11-07T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement##
