This book gathers the proceedings of the 1st International Conference on Engineering, Applied Sciences and System Modeling (ICEASSM), a four-day event (18th–21st April 2017) held in Accra, Ghana. It focuses on research work promoting a better understanding of engineering problems through applied sciences and modeling, and on solutions generated in an African setting but with relevance to the world as a whole. The book provides a holistic overview of challenges facing Africa, and addresses various areas from research and development perspectives.
Presenting contributions by scientists, engineers and experts hailing from a host of international institutions, the book offers original approaches and technological solutions to help solve real-world problems through research and knowledge sharing. Further, it explores promising opportunities for collaborative research on issues of scientific, economic and social development, making it of interest to researchers, scientists and practitioners looking to conduct research in disciplines such as water supply, control, civil engineering, statistical modeling, renewable energy and sustainable urban development.
