Hydrogeophysical study of aquifer characteristics in some parts of Nsukka and Igbo Eze south local government areas of Enugu State, Nigeria

Resistivity survey was carried out in some parts of Nsukka and Igbo Eze south local government areas of Enugu State, in order to evaluate the groundwater conditions of the area. The area is devoid of surface water and lack of proper knowledge of the aquifer has affected the extraction and development of groundwater in the area since it is the major source of water. Resistivity, thickness, depth, curve frequencies and...

Electrical conductivity and uniaxial shear tests on soil samples

Soil properties should be well known for the earthquake-resistant structural design studies and other engineering researches. It is aimed to understand the region's soil-structure properties as a result of the practices carried out to determine the mechanical properties and elastic-dynamic character of the units under load. Accordingly, considering the factors that affect the physical and mechanical properties such...

General Relativity support from the double pulsar

After the final publication of the Theory of General Relativity by Albert Einstein in 1916, experimental confirmation rested on three astronomical tests. These were the amount of bending of starlight at the edge of the Sun, the change in frequency of light emanating from the gravitational field of the Sun and an explanation in terms of the theory of a remnant quantity in the perihelion advance of Mercury which had been...
