Sudhakar sudhakar@ump.edu.my <p>Landing gear failures are a major cause of aircraft failures because they are an integral part of the aircraft's development. According to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), 50% of all aircraft failures occur during take-offs and landing. The landing gear of a short take-offs and landing (STOL) aircraft has had its static and dynamic forces analyzed analytically and numerically. SOLIWORKS is used to model the landing gear, and ANSYS is used to perform the numerical simulation results. Following it, the model is examined for stress and deformation with the boundary conditions and computed loads into account. This study uses structural finite element analysis (FEA) to analyze the nose gear's stress behavior and displacement during landing, as well as to assess the effect of the runway gradient. Utilizing a comprehensive numerical simulation, the landing gear of a real material Twin-Otter STOL aircraft has been demonstrated to be subjected to a dynamic force of 3653.26N, a pneumatic pressure of 1.59MPa, a bead pressure of 7.97MPa, and a vertical force of 1672.31lbs on level runways, or runways with no gradient. These findings will increase the level of confidence of aircraft manufacturers to make necessary appropriate design of STOL aircraft’s landing gear. It may can decrease the aircraft accidents and increase human life safety ultimately saving valuable time and resources too.</p> 2023-12-31T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 RMC, SSMYMC, Siraha https://www.nepjol.info/index.php/oas/article/view/65620 Effects of Digital Resources in Science Teaching and Learning in Secondary Schools: A Study in Siraha District 2024-05-08T17:25:37+00:00 Rajeshwer Prasad Yadav rajeshweryadav@gmail.com <p>The availability of digital resources has increased dramatically in school setting. The main objective of the study is to find out the use of digital resources in the science classrooms and its pedagogical impact on school-level science teaching and learning. The study followed descriptive design. For the study, 12 secondary (community-6, institutional-6) among 17 secondary schools that run Class 11 and 12 in science stream were randomly selected. All science teacher including lab instructors were the participants of the study. Observation forms and questionnaires were used as research tool. Percentage and Spearman’s correlation test were performed by using SPSS version 20. The results showed that digital resources were generally available in the classrooms but were not widely used. Furthermore, the science teachers who had excellent knowledge regarding digital resources and abilities had better performance than those with less knowledge and skill regarding digital resources as they work less aware of pedagogical implications of digital resources. Science teaching impacts were found to be significantly influenced by teachers’ age, experience, information communication and technology certifications, and teaching strategies. In the end, it was discovered that competencies of digital resources directly improved science teaching and learning results, enabling a paradigm shift away from conventional teaching techniques.</p> 2023-12-31T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 RMC, SSMYMC, Siraha https://www.nepjol.info/index.php/oas/article/view/65600 Exploring Experiences of Science Education Teachers on Professional Development 2024-05-08T12:54:41+00:00 Kamal Prasad Acharya kamalacharya@tucded.edu.np Rishi Ram Subedi Subedirishiram258@gmail.com <p>Maintaining current pedagogical strategies and remaining cutting-edge with regular updates is crucial in the field of science education, where professional development is a foundation for developing effective teaching and learning.

The objective of this research is to give a thorough knowledge of these problems that goes beyond simple information. The study uses a qualitative methodology and was carried out in Arghakhanchi. It involved two focus group discussions (FGDs) and five one-on-one interviews. The study, which takes a rights-based methodology, identifies inadequacies in child protection and takes into account the intersectionality of gender and poverty in rural Nepal. Qualitative information was analyzed by making themes, sub-themes, and categories. The study looks into a number of pieces of information that affect children's rights, including cultural norms, socioeconomic situations, and the efficiency of safety. The content that has been identified is financial resources, social values and beliefs, family dynamics, and service structures. It is found that dysfunctional homes, early pregnancy, school dropouts, exploitation, homelessness, child labor, and physical and emotional abuse are the hindrances to child rights. The findings placed a strong emphasis on community-based insight that can play a major role in defending children's rights. The ramifications go beyond guiding policy and community-based initiatives, with the goal of enhancing the general welfare of children in comparable rural environments in Nepal.</p> 2023-12-31T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 RMC, SSMYMC, Siraha https://www.nepjol.info/index.php/oas/article/view/65603 Transforming Food, Embracing Inclusivity: Nepal's Journey towards Sustainable Food Systems 2024-05-08T13:32:06+00:00 Rajesh Paudel raj5yes@gmail.com P. B. Nepali kumar2034@gmail.com H. K. Panta harikrpanta@gmail.com G. D. Acharya ganga1971@gmail.com <p>This study explored Nepal's dynamic food practices, examining the interplay between traditional rural and evolving urban contexts. The country's food system harmoniously integrates age-old agricultural wisdom with the changing demands of urbanization. In rural landscapes, communities craft a resilient tapestry using diverse crops, agroecological practices, and a profound respect for nature, ensuring steadfast food security even in challenging environments. Conversely, urbanization introduces convenience through supermarkets and processed foods, albeit with associated costs such as escalating health issues, food waste, and social inequalities. To bridge these disparities, a focus on inclusivity and resilience is imperative. Strategies include empowering rural women, investing in infrastructure, and safeguarding traditional knowledge for sustainable food security. Urban food policies should emphasize local markets, encourage healthy choices, and minimize waste. In essence, navigating Nepal's food system transformation necessitates a delicate balance between tradition and adaptation, aspiring towards a future where comprehensive food security and well-being flourish for all.</p> 2023-12-31T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 RMC, SSMYMC, Siraha https://www.nepjol.info/index.php/oas/article/view/65604 Practices of Inclusive Education at the Schools in Nepal 2024-05-08T15:04:25+00:00 Hikamat Bahadur Khatri hikamat9841502026@gmail.com <p>This paper attempts to analyze the practices of inclusive education at the schools in Nepal. The central theme of study was to analyze the practice of inclusive education in the classroom and it’s challenges. This paper used a qualitative research design in an interpretive way. Data sources, such as interviews with head teachers, teachers, and students, and field observation was conducted in the Palungtar Municipality of Gorkha district. The participants, respondents and study site were purposively selected. The study finding is that the inclusive education approach is not fully implemented at the school level, highlighting the importance of implementing such an approach. This approach is relevant to address the different capabilities of students in the classroom. This approach is particularly relevant in the classroom of Nepal as it effectively teaches students from diverse backgrounds, which both teachers and students appreciated this inclusive educational approach. However, inclusion practice is important and crucial for addressing deprived, disadvantaged, and marginalized groups of education.</p> 2023-12-31T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 RMC, SSMYMC, Siraha https://www.nepjol.info/index.php/oas/article/view/65605 Case-Marking System in Saptariya Tharu: A Typological Perspective 2024-05-08T15:12:04+00:00 Mahesh Kumar Chaudhary mktharu75@gmail.com <p>This paper explores the system of case marking in the Saptariya Tharu spoken in various districts of Nepal. Saptariya Tharu is identified as a nominative and accusative language, and studies are conducted to explore its case markers and postpositions. The paper discusses nominative case, accusative-dative case, locative case, genitive case, ablative case, instrumental case, and comitative case and highlights their use and examples. In addition, the paper compares the Sapataria Tharu case marking system with other Indo-Aryan languages spoken in Nepal's Terai region. It points out that most languages in this region also have nomenclature-accusation patterns. Furthermore, this article notes the similarities between these languages, emphasizing the absence of ergative case markers and the differences between instrumental, genitive, dative, and locative markers. The research concludes that it reveals a rich case-marking system of Saptariya Tharu in a broader context of the Indo-Aryan languages spoken in Nepal's terai region, highlighting its unique linguistic characteristics and typological similarities with neighboring languages.</p> 2023-12-31T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 RMC, SSMYMC, Siraha https://www.nepjol.info/index.php/oas/article/view/65607 Health Equity through Structural Adjustment by Nepal for Public Health 2024-05-08T15:20:29+00:00 Khem Kumar Bhurtel khem.bhurtel@mrc.tu.edu.np Parmila Basnet pramila.basnet@mrc.tu.edu.np Shalikram Sigdel srsigdel@gmail.com Keshar Jung Magar kesharmagar2034@gmail.com Sita Ram Ghimire srghimireilam@gmail.com Ganga Ram Paudel poudelgangaram0@gmail.com <p>The study states at Nepal's healthcare system, emphasizing structural changes and obstacles to enhanced health of people. The federal system prioritizes social determinants, healthcare personnel, quality access, community involvement, and the impact of globalization on health while providing comprehensive services despite decentralization and collaboration. With an emphasis on social justice and the promotion of public health, this paper investigates Nepal's healthcare system and health equity in the context of globalization. Reviewing data, policy, implementation, and literature assists it to analyze and draw conclusion.

The Nepali language (Khaskura) is believed to have sprung from the tongues of the Khasas such as Mugali, Achhami, and mainly Sinjali or Jumli spoken in the Karnali region. This paper seeks to make the representation of the Chhetris as the direct descendants of the ancient Khasas, and to highlight their distinct traditions and customs from the historical perspective. It argues that the Khasas are the ancient settlers of western Nepal having the amalgamation of shamanic and Vedic traditions. Their matrilineal society transformed into patrilineal framework owing to the accumulation of wealth in the hands of males and the consequent idea of private property. This study would encourage the scholars to look at this issue from the perspectives or the oral narratives of the Khasa Chhetris.</p> 2023-12-31T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 RMC, SSMYMC, Siraha https://www.nepjol.info/index.php/oas/article/view/65611 Interrelation Between Online Instruction and E-Resources in Higher Education 2024-05-08T15:56:23+00:00 Yogendra Thapa thapayog@gmail.com <p>To measure the interrelationships between online instruction and e-resources in higher education is the objective of this study. Four hundred students who are studying for a master degree in Kathmandu Valley are randomly assigned. A correlational research design is applied within the nonexperimental study with a positivist philosophical background. Data are collected once through a semi-structured questionnaire. Relationships were identified using chi-square and logistic regression through Stata 14. The results show that the majority of students have limited access to e-resources. Less than one-third of students have utilized online resources. Students' satisfaction and perception of effective online instruction were more likely to utilize e-resources. The study concludes that online modes of instruction have limited success in utilizing online resources. The majority of students have limited access to e-resources and mainly depend on printed materials. The study suggests that practical-based training for utilizing online resources should be provided to enhance proficiency in technology and awareness of e-resources.</p> 2023-12-31T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 RMC, SSMYMC, Siraha https://www.nepjol.info/index.php/oas/article/view/65612 Use of Instructional Materials for Teaching Social Studies 2024-05-08T16:03:57+00:00 Binod Kumar Yadav binodyadav957@gmail.com <p>Instructional materials are both human and non-human resources used in teaching and learning activities.
