The heat and mass transfer characteristics of natural convection about a vertical surface embedded in a saturated porous medium subject to variable viscosity are numerically analyzed, by taking into account the diffusion-thermo Dufour and thermal-diffusion Soret effects. The governing equations of continuity, momentum, energy, and concentrations are(More)
The aim of this paper is to investigate the effect of variable viscosity on free convective heat and mass transfer from a horizontal plate embedded in a saturated porous medium. The governing equations of continuity, momentum, energy and concentration are transformed into non linear ordinary differential equations using similarity transformations and then(More)
AIM To study the effects of combinations of fenugreek (Trigonella foenum-graecum L.), garlic (Allium sativum), and black pepper (Piper nigrum) powder supplementation on production traits of broiler chickens. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 288 commercial broiler chicks were randomly assigned to 1-9 groups with 4 replicates each. An experiment was(More)
This study discusses on the factors that influence the purchase of non-audit services by the companies in Malaysia. It investigates the effects of chief executive officer duality, board independence and audit committee independence on purchase of non-audit services. The proposed model indicates that the chief executive officer duality, board independence(More)
In Malaysia, despite SMEs' have a significant contribution to the economy, they have not been given adequate attention as the various researchers have been biased towards larger and listed enterprises in Malaysia. So, this study aims to investigate the factors affecting the performance of SMEs in the manufacturing sector in Malaysia. The Contingency Theory(More)
This paper evaluates the role of information technology and how it affects internal audit process in the organization. The study also stresses on the global trend of adopting IT system (software/ hardware) in producing a more controlled environment in delivering the auditing process. It also constitutes on how IT affects internal control (control(More)
