A workshop cupboard is a facility designed from mild steel for the storage of various materials, like book material and non-book materials e.g. workshop tools, labouratory wares and reagents, etc; after operations in a chemical labouratory, mechanical workshop, or else where.
The construction of a workshop cupboard requires the consideration of lots of characteristics of the materials, which are used for the construction, such as physical and mechanical; chemical properties, service requirements, its fabrication process as well as cost of production.
For the constructional project, every necessary technical knowledge was employed; ranging from selection of engineering materials, to constructional procedures which includes sketching, drawing to scale, marking out, cutting, sand preparing, bending and folding, welding and painting, all geared towards the achievement of the construction of a steel cupboard.
In the constructional project, mild steel was chosen as the material of construction not because of its corrosion resistance, but for such properties as cost, strength and ease of fabrication.

ABSTRACT The aim of this project was to construct a steel cupboard in order to help us acquire the knowledge of fabrication of a modern cupboard and the essence of it. Also to enable us (the students of chemical Engineering) to know how to construct as future engineers. The construction of steel cupboard was done... Continue Reading
ABSTRACT The steel-shelf was constructed at the mechanical engineering workshop of the institute. It was done by first of all making out the dimension with the scribers, cutting, wielding, dittoing, assembling and painting. The method ology involved the preliminary calculation of the total surface area of the two mili... Continue Reading
CONSTRUCTION OF STEEL – SHELF ABSTRACT The steel-shelf was constructed at the mechanical Engineering workshop of the Institute. The first step taken in the fabrication of the shelf was the selection of the material suitable for the construction; mild steel was chosen. The construction has the following steps: drawing and dimensioning of the... Continue Reading
ABSTRACT The aim of this project was to acquire the constructional and fabrication knowledge by we, the students of chemical engineering by constructing a steel bookshelf. This work exposed us to many things like material for engineering and their requirements. It also exposed us to other fields of engineering like... Continue Reading
THE CONSTRUCTION OF SAND FILTER FOR PORTABLE WATER FILTRATION WITH STAINLESS STEEL MATERIAL ABSTRACT The project constructed was sand filter; equipment for portable water filtration. This was constructed using a mild steel material. This was because of the excellent high qualities of mild steel such as; durability tensile strength, high corrosion... Continue Reading
ABSTRACT This research work is centered on the effect of conflict management on employee’s performance in an organization (A case study of Ajaokuta Steel Company Limited and Fougerolle Construction Company, Kogi State). The objective of this study is to find out whether conflict can be avoided in an organization and to find out whether... Continue Reading
CONSTRUCTION OF STEEL SHELF (BOOK SHELF) ABSTRACT The steel – shelf was constructed at the mechanical engineering workshop of the institute. It was done by first of all marking out the dimension with scribers, cutting, welding, filing, assembling and painting. The methodology involved the preliminary calculation of the total surface area of the... Continue Reading
ABSTRACT A lateritic soil classified as sandy clay or (CL) and A-7-6 (5) according to Unified Soil Classification System (USCS) and AASHTO classification system respectively,was treated with up to 10% pulverized steel slag (an industrial waste product) by dryweight of soil. Elemental and chemical analysis of the steel slag was determined using... Continue Reading
This project covers a study of the effect of seawater corrosion on 0.34% and 0.36% carbon steel compositions. Two (2) specimens (steel rods) of length 150mm (each) for both steel compositions were obtained. Out of each was gotten four (4) specimens of 10mm length, 10mm diameter and two (2) specimens of 50mm length, 10mm diameter. This yielded a... Continue Reading
