    Design and Implementation of an Automated Prepaid Water Meter: Case Study of National Water and Sewerage Corporation (NWSC).
    (Kabale University, 2022) Akankwasa, John Bosco
    The water billing systems currently available in the Ugandan market still incurs costs of reconnection in case of a disconnection, when a client clears the arrears. For example, if a client does not pay in time, a utility officer moves to the point where the water meter is located and disconnects the client to stop having access to water. The same applies to reconnection when a customer clears. This research seeks to solve inconveniences by automating the system. If a customer uses up their credit, then water flow should be stopped instantly. Likewise, if a customer pays the bills, they should access the water instantly. In this way, costs involved in disconnection and reconnection are minimised.

    Design of a Modern Car Parking at the Faculty of Engineering, Technology Aplied Design and Fine Art.
    (Kabale University, 2020) Byamukama, Samuel
    The ever-increasing use of the faculty green land as a parking lot for vehicles called for our group to research and designs a modern car ark. The investigated the most feasible solution of keeping in lace equal ratio of green land to buildings in the existence. To achieve this, we designed a ground plan, model using arch cad and hand molded a prototype using mounting boards, novice glue, to show what we exactly designed using the software. Chapter one about introduction explains the basis of the faculty, back ground of the project, problem statement, specific objective, main objectives . Chapter two explains the basis of our research, study and source of the knowledge of our design. Chapter three gives an overview of the employed methods that helped us to come find feasible solution to the problem statement. It includes bench marking, data collection, and design among the many Lastly chapter four explains the future works, conclusions and recommendations.

    Investigating the Suitability of Cement Stabilized Murram Soil as Mortar for Construction.
    (Kabale University, 2021) Siende, Isaac
    Masonry mortar is a homogenous mixture comprising of fine aggregates, binding material and water. The increase in the cost and demand of sand for construction is becoming a problem and making the construction more expensive in some parts of the country. Therefore, the replacement of sand-based mortars with soil-based mortars will be economical in the construction. This research addresses on an experimental study to understand the suitability of cement stabilized murram soil of G3 as mortar for construction. Critical properties of mortar have been studied i.e., Workability and Plasticity, Flexural and Compressive Strength, the Bond strength, the Initial and Final setting time of the mortars. The mortar with 0%, 15%, 20%, 25%,50%, 60%, and 75% replacement of sand in murram soil and without varying the percentage of cement was conducted. Their compressive and flexural strength obtained. The compressive strength at the age of 28 days lied within the range of 9.73MPa to 16.42MPa which is acceptable as per the IS code specification, the minimum strength requirement of mortar to be 3 MPa. The initial and final setting time lied in the range of 120 minutes and 150 minutes and the final setting time lied in the range of 270 minutes and 300 minutes for cement and murram mortars respectively. The recommended range of mortar to be used for construction is 30 minutes minimum and 600 minutes maximum for initial and final setting time respectively. The workability of the murram mortar was 82% and the plasticity index of the murram soil was 25%, which lied within the recommended range. The conclusions of the investigation of murram soil shows that the use of cement stabilized murram mortar can be applied in construction as far as the investigated parameters are concerned.
