Technology Reports of Kansai University (ISSN: 04532198) is a monthly peer-reviewed and open-access international Journal. It was first built in 1959 and officially in 1975 till now by kansai university, japan. The journal covers all sort of engineering topic, mathematics and physics. Technology Reports of Kansai University (TRKU) was closed access journal until 2017. After that TRKU became open access journal. TRKU is a scopus indexed journal and directly run by faculty of engineering, kansai university.

In this work, we study the influence of the millet pod on the compressive strength of clay bricks from the Maradi region. These compressed bricks are stabilized by the percentage of cement (4 %). A geotechnical characterization was carried out and allowed the classification of the clay which was used to make these bricks. It appears that the material under study is plastic clay and can be classified according to the "AASHTO" (American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials) classification, A-7-6 (18). The measurements have shown that the values of the compressive strength vary between 2.41 MPa and 5.18 MPa. The optimal value is obtained with 4 % of millet pod
Traffic performance of signalized intersection is always difficult to be described by road users. They unable to plan their journey accurately if they under- or over-estimate traffic performance especially in crossing a signalized intersection. Traffic engineers who desire to overcome the problem of congestion at signalized intersection required to carry out a study before they are able to suggest any recommendations or improvements. Level of Service (LOS) is generally used for defining or describing the actual traffic performance by providing standard explanation to the road user. It is easier and simpler to be understood by the road user by categorizing the traffic performance into several levels. 1985 HCM delay model was chosen in this study to investigate and estimate the delays at signalized intersection for determining LOS. The longer the delay, the worse the LOS. Parameters such as saturation headways, saturation flow rates, loss times, actual green period and cycle time was obtained by analyzing the field data collected from the study area. All parameters were interrelated to carry out the estimation of LOS to provide a clearly defined explanation to the actual traffic performance at the study area. However, the delay model is just estimation for LOS and it may unable to fully reflect the actual condition on site. The results and conclusions obtained through this case study will be the references to evaluate the traffic performance at the signalized intersection
