Series: Advances in Engineering Research
BISAC: TEC000000

This volume includes seven chapters presenting recent advancements in engineering research. Chapter One investigates soybean processing to identify the best technologies to transform soybean byproducts into new products. Chapter Two provides an overview of intrinsically conducting polymers-based electrochemical sensors as quick and easy diagnostic tools for bacterial infection control. Chapter Three presents a programmable logic controller/human-machine interface-based logic design laboratory platform for computer science and electrical engineering students. Chapter Four evaluates artificial neural network systems for bioengineering systems and industries. Chapter Five determines the efficacy of multi-walled carbon nanotubes for the adsorptive removal of acrylic acid from water. Chapter Six deals with regulating the direction of movement of air contaminated with dust, smoke, and soot in worship halls. Lastly, Chapter Seven aims to explore different domains where non-quantum and quantum resources co-exist and non-classicality arises in different forms.
