Revolutionary Artificial Intelligence Architectural Design Solutions; Is It An Opportunity Or A Threat?, Mahmoud Desouki, T. A. El-Haddad, Bahaa El-Boshey 2023 Department of Architecture, Nile Higher Institute for Engineering and Technology, Mansoura, Egypt.

Revolutionary Artificial Intelligence Architectural Design Solutions; Is It An Opportunity Or A Threat?, Mahmoud Desouki, T. A. El-Haddad, Bahaa El-Boshey

Mansoura Engineering Journal

Architectural design is uniquely complex, time-consuming work, so AI promises major benefits but also risks. Architectural design software programs have recently made an impressive development, especially those that use artificial intelligence. AI could transform design and construction with tools enabling generative design, parametric modeling, simulation, and optimization. However, AI’s impact remains unclear. Adoption depends on architects leveraging AI to augment judgment rather than replace it. Factors limiting AI include limited education/experience, threats to creative skills architects value, and unreliable AI design tools. While many see AI as an opportunity, not an endangerment, optimism and uncertainty prevail. AI may ultimately enhance …

Ehf-Fndm: An Efficient Hybrid Features Fake News Detection Methodology On Social Media, Haidy Samir Fahim, Asmaa Mohamed Al-Saied, Ahmed Shaban Samra, Abeer Twakol Khalil

Mansoura Engineering Journal

People are increasingly using social media to consume and share news. The inherent benefits of social media over traditional news media include its low cost and ease of access. In addition, publishing a news article requires less content censorship on social media. The rapid spread of "fake news" on social media, that is, news that contains intentionally false information, has a significant negative impact on society. For instance, false information about the coronavirus disease "2019" has spread around the world like a virus. Therefore, developing effective methods to detect fake news early has great importance. In this paper, the (Efficient …


Giving Up Control: Hybrid Ai-Augmented Workflows For Image-Making, Joshua Vermillion 2023 University of Nevada, Las Vegas

Giving Up Control: Hybrid Ai-Augmented Workflows For Image-Making, Joshua Vermillion

Tradition Innovations in Arts, Design, and Media Higher Education

This paper argues that if we are to come to creative terms with AI image-making then we must critically interrogate these new tools in the production of creative works. In doing so, designers can start to chart new creative workflows that integrate AI for image-making while augmenting and then evolving our current ways of designing. Workflows are shown that relate to how AI models can augment human creativity in hybrid (human and AI) creative endeavors while taking advantage of the affordances of these technologies.

Mansoura Engineering Journal

Six cold-formed steel columns with lipped channel and different types of web stiffener configurations were experimentally investigated under axial compression forces up to failure. The experimental results were compared with Finite Element; FE analysis using Abaqus program. The behavior characteristics; including the ultimate load, the axial shortening, and the failure mode have been analyzed. The test specimens were brake-pressed from cold-formed steel sheets with nominal thickness of 1.5 mm and then each two identical members were connected back-to-back by selfdrilling screws to form an I-shaped section with edge and web stiffeners. Tests were carried out on short columns with length …


Hydrogen Recovery From Refinery Units Off Gases Using Different Systems, AbdullahA.H. Abdullah, M.M. El-Halwany, Mahmoud H Mahmoud, Mohamed Gar Alalm 2023 Environmental Engineering, management and technology, Faculty of Engineering, Mansoura University, Mansoura, 35516, Egypt

Hydrogen Recovery From Refinery Units Off Gases Using Different Systems, Abdullaha.H. Abdullah, M.M. El-Halwany, Mahmoud H Mahmoud, Mohamed Gar Alalm

Mansoura Engineering Journal

Hydrogen recovery unit is important to remove H2S from the off gases generated from various units in refinery and recovers hydrogen. The recovered hydrogen reduces the quantity of hydrogen needed to be produced from hydrogen production unit required for hydro-treating processes in the refinery. The off gas generated from this unit is used as fuel gas. This is achieved at reasonable cost and with maximum protection to people, equipment, materials, and the environment. Proper operation will ensure that these goals are met. The required purity is (>99.9 mol%).


Evaluation Of Feasibility And Performance Of Foamed Fire-Resistant Coating Materials, Anyou Zhu, Hanli Wu, Yizhuang David Wang, Jenny Liu 2023 Missouri University of Science and Technology

Evaluation Of Feasibility And Performance Of Foamed Fire-Resistant Coating Materials, Anyou Zhu, Hanli Wu, Yizhuang David Wang, Jenny Liu

Civil, Architectural and Environmental Engineering Faculty Research & Creative Works

A preliminary study found high-performance cement mortar, geopolymer mortar, and magnesium phosphate cement mortar (MPCM) have the potential as new fire-resistant materials. In this study, foam was added to these three fire-resistant materials to further improve their rheological, mechanical, and fire-resistant performance and reduce costs. Systematic design and experimental programs were conducted. The results showed the addition of foam enhanced workability, adhesiveness, and fire resistance, allowing the materials to withstand higher temperatures and further delay heat transfer. A mixture of 70% MPCM and 30% foam was identified as the optimum design, which could withstand 1000 °C with low heat transfer …

Improving Rheological And Thermal Performance Of Gilsonite-Modified Binder With Phase Change Materials, Farshad Saberi K., Yizhuang David Wang, Jenny Liu 2023 Missouri University of Science and Technology

Improving Rheological And Thermal Performance Of Gilsonite-Modified Binder With Phase Change Materials, Farshad Saberi K., Yizhuang David Wang, Jenny Liu

Civil, Architectural and Environmental Engineering Faculty Research & Creative Works

Gilsonite, as a type of natural asphalt binder, has been used to improve the high-temperature performance of regular asphalt binders. However, the addition of Gilsonite may compromise binders' low-temperature thermal cracking resistance. In this research, polyethylene glycol (PEG), as one type of the phase change materials (PCMs), was used as an innovative material to balance the impacts of Gilsonite on high and low performance of asphalt binders. The dosages of Gilsonite and PEG were first determined based on the materials' rheological behaviors at low temperatures. The performance of the PEG-Gilsonite-modified binder was then fully evaluated in terms of the resistance …


Power Allocation Stable Matching User Pairing (Smup) In Noma With Swipt, Bassem M. Saleh, Ahmed Elnakib, Sherif Kishk, Mohamed M. Ashour 2023 Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering, Faculty of Engineering, Mansoura University, Mansoura, 35516, Egypt

Power Allocation Stable Matching User Pairing (Smup) In Noma With Swipt, Bassem M. Saleh, Ahmed Elnakib, Sherif Kishk, Mohamed M. Ashour

Mansoura Engineering Journal

Non-orthogonal multiple access (NOMA) is a potentially spectral efficient approach for beyond-fifth-generation wireless networks. This paper investigates the joint user pairing, and power allocation problem in a cooperative-NOMA (CNOMA) with simultaneous wireless information and power transfer (SWIPT) capabilities. The purpose of this work is to enhance the sum-rate of users with poor channel conditions while guaranteeing residual energy for paired users with good channel conditions as compensation for their cooperation. To overcome this challenge, we divided it into two parts: power allocation (PA) and user pairing (UP). The particle swarm-optimization (PSO) method is utilized to address the PA issue, whereas …
