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.

Silica sand is sand that is used for molding processes. When a catalyst is added to it, it develops the bonding characteristics of the raisin, which binds the silica sand together. Its moisture content (17.24% initial and 0.5% final moisture content) is extremely critical sand additive that can be greatly impact casting quality. In this study flat plate solar collector was used because, it is the most important type of solar collector and it is simple in design, has no moving parts and requires little maintenance. The analysis of heat transfer coefficient (losses) through flat plate collector was discussed and the techniques that used to reduce these losses also mentioned (by using insulation). This paper presents performance evaluation of solar dryer for silica sand. In the dryer, the heated air from a separate solar collector is passed through a tray, and at the same time, vertical blackened wall of the drying chamber, which is exposed to solar radiation. The results obtained during the test period revealed that the temperatures, moisture removed, drying rate and drying efficiency through dying chamber were decreasing during its upraise path.
The purpose of this research is to apply the magnetic field induction method to determine the type of soil. This soil type information is used to assess the suitability of the land for cultivation. The method was applied by using two types of coils which is functioned as transmitters and receivers’ probes. The voltage response measured on the receiving coil is analyzed to differentiate between each type of soil. Some type of soils, have been used in this measurement, including laterite, sediment, humus, clay and volcanic soils. Based on measurements, all soils have successfully responded to the voltage on the receiving coil and can be distinguished from one another from the voltage value. Volcanic soils, which contain the largest element of aluminum, namely 45%, provide the largest electrical voltage response. Meanwhile, humus soil, which contains 1% aluminum, provides the smallest electrical voltage response.
