Empirical analysis of road traffic accidents: A case study of Kogi State, North-Central Nigeria

This paper studied the trend of road accident in Kogi State from January, 1997 to December, 2010, using a univariate time series data collected from the Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC), Lokoja, Kogi State. The model for the data was found to be Y = 22.062 + 0.252T. Test for the existence of trend and seasonal variation was conducted at 0.05 level of significance, and a four years forecast for road accident was...

Characteristics of supercritical flow in rectangular channel

The present study deals with the supercritical flow characteristics and the effort has been made to verify analytical and empirical relations based on extensive experimentation for different characteristics namely: sequent depth ratio (h2/h1), efficiency of jump (E2/E1), relative height of jump (hj/E1) and relative length of jump (Lj/h2). Also, the existing models for different channel conditions are discussed;...
