Due to increasing population, and human activities on land to meet various demands, land uses are being continuously changed without a clear and logical planning with any attention to their long term environmental impacts. Thus affecting the natural balance of the environment, in the form of global warming, soil degradation, loss of biodiversity, air and(More)
The graph partitioning problem has numerous applications in various scientific fields. It usually involves the effective partitioning of a graph into a number of disjoint sub-graphs/zones, and hence becomes a combinatorial optimization problem whose worst case complexity is NP-complete. The inadequacies of exact methods, like linear and integer programming(More)
This study examined the spatial and temporal rainfall variability from the 1940s to 2007 in the south west coastal region of Bangladesh. Time series statistical tests were applied to examine the spatial and temporal trends in three time segments (1948–1970, 1971–1990 and 1991–2007) and four seasons (Pre-monsoon; Monsoon; Post-Monsoon and Winter), during the(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess for improved rigidity with the addition of a medial endosteal plate to laterally plated supracondylar femoral fractures. DESIGN A randomized paired study in a supracondylar femoral fracture model comparing two fixation methods tested cyclically in axial and torsional loading. METHODS One-centimeter supracondylar gap osteotomies were(More)
Unlike in many other universities, preparation of class timetable in IIT Kanpur is very laborious and complicated. It contains different types of classes, among which most of the common classes are either split or grouped. Many split classes are divided up to five parts, while many sets of group classes contain up to twenty classes. The entire timetable is(More)
