A case study on optimal distribution of force level in key levers of World Bank’s Saber framework for an educational institute of a developing country (Published)

The World Bank Group has understood the importance of education in Global scenario and its effect on economic growth. As per the group the Global education inequity can be eradicated by a two prong approach; education policies and regulations at national level and high quality knowledge base at Global level. In order to achieve the goal, World Bank Group has initiated a strategy called Systems Approach for Better Education Results (SABER) [1]. NGOs in education field are doing a yeoman’s job in providing quality education to the low income groups thereby bringing in educational equity in the world (both developing and developed countries). One of such largest initiative is “Teach for all”. The paper is a case study on low penetration of volunteers into certain key levers/ segments of an educational NGO of a developing country. The strategy and methodology is applicable to any “Teach for all” NGOs across the world. This gives a methodology to optimize force level in key levers of any educational institute which would like to follow the World Bank’s SABER framework to ensure bring in successful educational strategy. The paper has not only discussed the optimal distribution of force level using linear regression predictive method but also pointed out the potential risks and opportunities.

Investigating the Effect of Loss-Of-Pressure-Control on the Stability of Water-Cooled Reactor Design Models (Published)

To investigate loss-of-pressure-control on the stability of a typical water-cooled reactor design models during operation in terms of normal applicable pressure within reactor core and abnormal applicable pressure within reactor core. Linear Regression Analysis Techniques was applied on a typical water-cooled nuclear reactor design models, viz Water-Cooled Reactor Design with Normal Pressure (WCRD NP) flow rate within the reactor and Water-Cooled Reactor Design with Abnormal Pressure (WCRD AP) flow rate within the reactor. Empirical expressions are obtained for WCRD NP model and WCRD AP model. The results of the statistical analyses on these two types of nuclear reactor models reveals that the WCRD NP promises to be more stable than WCRD AP. The implication of this research effort to Nigeria’s nuclear power project is discussed
