This book aims to elaborate applications of the close-range photogrammetry in transportation forensic science and to give examples of such applications. The main characteristics of photographic equipment are described together with guidelines for its use for the photogrammetric measurements. Two types of photogrammetric software, calibration procedures and photogrammetric products are presented. In addition, four practical applications of the close-range photogrammetry in transportation forensics are given. In the second part is conducted a field experiment of photogrammetric measurement. An intersection is imagined by a non-metric digital camera and measured by two photogrammetric programs. Obtained results are compared and evaluated with measurements from a digital total station.
In this work our study have been carried out on the formulation and evaluation of various toothpaste brands available in Indian market in forensic aspect. The designed toothpaste samples were analysed for various parameters and characteristics, which were conceded out for all the available samples. Physical parameters such as efficacy, performance, quality and sensitivity were tested according to the Bureau of Indian Standards, while chromatographic analysis of chlorates of alkali metals and chloroform were based on the European Directive. Our findings indicated that all the toothpaste formulations complied with the standards specified with Bureau of Indian Standards and are in agreement with manufacturer's specifications.
Forensic science refers to areas of endeavour that can be used in a judicial settings and accepted by the court and the general scientific community to separate truth from untruth. Forensic odontology refers to the application of dental science to the administration of the law and the furtherance of justice. Forensic odontologist must have broad background knowledge of general dentistry, including all dental specialities. This book encompasses all the aspects of forensic odontology and summarizes the previous researches and recent advances.
Human identification is important both from legal and humanitarian point of view. Forensic odontology is the application of art and science of dental medicine to solving of matters pertaining to law. The diversity of dental characteristics, the hardness of enamel and the resistance of tooth to the enviornmental challenges makes it an ideal material for identity purposes when recognition by other means fails. Through this book, the author aims to review the role the dentist can play in justice achievement.
Global effective corporate and auditing scandals experienced in especially 21. Century and has re-emphasized all auditing practices causes the concept of forensic accounting. Forensic accounting functions as a bridge between law and accounting sciences, and it plays an active role in determination, prevention and deterrence of fraud and corruption mostly experienced in corporate and in the legal process initiated against fraud and corruption. Forensic accounting requires to have knowledge and skills in many fields particularly accounting, auditing and law, and many other branches of science such as statistics, mathematics, information technology, and psychology; so it is important tool in the fight against fraud and corruption.
Nicole Scarazzo has worked in the forensic science field as a trace analyst in both illicit drugs and ignitable liquid analysis. Along with forensic science experience, she also has knowledge with various types of analytical instrumentation, mainly with mass spectrometry. She currently works as an instrumental chemist in the field of analytical chemistry specializing in analysis of pharmaceutical drugs.
Understanding Forensic Digital Imaging offers the principles of forensic digital imaging and photography in a manner that is straightforward and easy to digest for the professional and student. It provides information on how to photograph any setting that may have forensic value, details how to follow practices that are acceptable in court, and recommends what variety of hardware and software are most valuable to a practitioner. In addition to chapters on basic topics such as light and lenses, resolution, and file formats, the book contains forensic-science-specific information on SWGIT and the use of photography in investigations and in court. Of particular note is Chapter 17, "Establishing Quality Requirements," which offers information on how to create a good digital image, and is more comprehensive than any other source currently available. A companion website offers exercises for the student and practicing professional.* Covers topics that are of vital importance to the practicing professional* Serves as an up-to-date reference in the rapidly evolving world of digital imaging* Uses clear and concise language so that any reader can understand the technology and science behind digital imaging
Computational biology involves the development and application of data-analytical and theoretical methods, mathematical modeling and computational simulation techniques to the study of biological, behavioral, and social systems. In our study, advanced computational technique such as MD simulation using "Schrodinger" package have been used to study heat shock protein (Hsp90) of plant origin. The protocol has been discussed in detail so as to assist other people working in similar areas, particularity in plant sciences, to initiate research in the exciting field of bioinformatics.
On construction sites, the digital photos have been routinely applied for project management, such as documentation of daily activities and provision of visual aids for better communication. With the advance of the surveying technique of close-range photogrammetry, information from the two-dimensional (2D) digital images can be extracted to construct three-dimensional (3D) knowledge, which is of great assistance for site engineers, for example, to sketch profiles of site elements, measure structure geometric dimensions, and track progress states of an ongoing product. For the benefit of construction professionals who are interested in utilizing or developing close-range photogrammetry, this book introduces the fundamentals of this technique and applies it to analytically 1) model 3D construction site elements by point and shoot photography, 2) measure the geometric dimensions of building products, and 3) augment site photos with 3D graphics of underground facilities for better quality investigation and progress visualization of infrastructure construction.
Remote sensing and Geomorphology are two disciplines of science, where geomorphology is the science of study of landforms of the earth. It is concerned with pattern of landform, materials and their related processes. Geomorphology as a science deals with evolutionary processes of relief forms of the earth and lead us to understand various processes of evolution of landforms.Remote sensing is the science of acquiring information about an object or phenomena close to the earth’s surface by measuring electromagnetic radiation. Remote sensing is an effective tool that enables understanding of aerial and satellite images containing integrated information’s of the features on the ground such as landform, ecology, available resources and impact of human interference on the natural landscape. The present collection of articles is the result of research study undertaken in different field areas of Assam. Land use and land cover change (LULC) is one of the focal themes in geomorphic study. It has great significance in analysis of changing nature of land use practices, causes of increasing intensity of resource use and changing relationship between Man’s activities with nature.
