Recently there has been an increasing demand of an automated system for animal species identification, where it needs a perfect good knowledge, understanding of the nature under vision and proper efficient system design. Embedded systems nowadays are offering a brilliant solution. Based on nature of economic and feasibility of advanced, embedded technology is chosen. This paper proposes a design of real-time portable bioacoustics species identification system. It contains two major correlated modules apart, the identification module and the system control module. The identification module is to be implemented in FPGA hardware to achieve species identification process while the system control module will manage and control the entire system. The proposed system is a combination of hardware, software development and operating system customization. It is designed to be decentralize, therefore the need of any server is eliminated. It can be placed anywhere, can be viewed and accessed from anywhere through a web server built-in.
Effects of quarry dust and polypropylene fiber on compaction properties, shear strength parameters, and California bearing ratio (CBR) of a fly ash have been discussed in this paper. Quarry dust was added to a fly ash from 0 to 60% at an increment of 10%, compaction and soaked CBR tests were conducted on fly ash-quarry dust mixes and the optimum percentage of quarry dust was found out to be 40%. Polypropylene fiber was added to fly ash stabilized with optimum percentage of quarry dust, from 0 to 1.5% at an increment of 0.25%. Compaction, shear strength and soaked CBR tests were conducted on fly ash-quarry dust-polypropylene fiber mixes. From the test results the optimum percentage of polypropylene fiber was found out to be 1%. At the optimum percentage addition of quarry dust and polypropylene fiber there is slight decrease in maximum dry density and optimum moisture content, 28% increase in cohesion, 45% increase in angle of internal friction, and 597% increase in soaked CBR of the fly ash.
