Editors Review

His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej graciously
enacted the Privy Seal of the Ninth Reign, as well as
the Maha Phichai Crown as a logo, for nine Rajamangala
Universities of Technology in 2005. His Majesty the King
was pleased to give the name Rajamangala meaning
the Auspicious University of the King.

On the special occasion of the 10th anniversary
celebration of the University on January 18 th, 2015,
Rajamangala University of Technology Lanna (RMUTL)
proudly publishes the RMUTL Research Activities Booklet,
2014. This is the first edition of the research booklet, and
it will describe in detail the research output of RMUTL
for the last 10 years. The mission of RMUTL is revealed
as encompassing: teaching, research, academic service for
communities, arts, culture and environment preservation,
and management. The booklet contains reports that show
the excellence of research generated from the Universitys
campuses, Faculties, Institute, and College. These awarded
research studies (Research Presentations and Competitions)
further illustrate the cooperation existing between RMUTL
and industry sectors in terms of academic collaboration
and research participation. This cooperation is seen as
essential to the further development of research,
innovation implementation, and as a substantive contribution to
the enhancement of communities and commerce.

The editors are especially grateful to the executives,


faculties, staff, and stakeholders who significantly
contributed to this initial publication. The RMUTL Research
Activities booklet will be published every six months to
encourage RMUTL researchers and to present outstanding
research. Finally, the editors and staff of the Research and
Development Institute hope that the booklet will be of
continuing benefit to its readers.

Foreword

First of all, let me congratulate Rajamangala University of
Technology Lanna (RMUTL) on its 10 years of successful development.
I would like to deeply acknowledge and thank former and current presidents, deans, teachers,
students and staff members who have generously put in all those efforts. Their outstanding
contributions have made RMUTL what it is today.

It is with great pleasure we celebrate our 10th anniversary this year as RMUTL. It
is ten years since Rajamangala Institute of Technology was divided into nine Rajamangala
Universities. RMUTL now is a multi-campus university located in the northern region of
Thailand consisting of six campuses, namely, Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai, Lampang, Tak,
Pitsanulok, and Nan. The educational aim of RMUTL is to be a leading university that
meets international standards in preparing graduates with hands-on skills, creativity, and
knowledge of science, technology, and research to serve the community.


The important challenge that RMUTL is faced with today is actually training our
students to be work ready and employable. RMUTL should not only provide students with
the knowledge, professional experiences, skills and vision to be capable citizens of the
world but also help them to understand the dynamics of globalization.

Now, based on our three core strategies Change, Challenge,
Chance - we are doing our best to achieve our following goals, namely;

1 . To f o s t e r a h i g h e r e d u c a t i o n s y s t e m b a s e d o n s c i e n c e a n d
technology with a focus upon producing hands-on graduates with practical skills, moral
principles, and independence;

2. To be a leading practitioner in science and technology;

3. To provide educational opportunities for students with practical skills;

4. To initiate research and academic services, particularly those related to
knowledge and innovation;

5. To preserve and encourage the development of culture and the environment;

6. To maintain a strong educational management system, allowing for an
autonomous institution.

In the upcoming decade, and as ASEAN integration will start in December this
year, we are ready to further strengthen vocational education applicable to international
systems through advanced hands-on education. Also we will strive to strengthen our research
capability as much as possible in order to encourage much more creativity and innovation
at RMUTL.

At this point in the 10-year history of the RMUTL, I see 2015 as the
s p r i n g b o a r d f o r t h e u n i v e r s i t y s s e c o n d t a k e - o ff . I h a v e n o d o u b t
whatsoever that, under the fine leadership of Vice-Presidents, Deans, Directors,
outstanding faculty members, enthusiastic supporting staff and excellent students we will
do our utmost to develop RMUTL as a most prestigious institutions receiving national and
international recognition.

This, the first booklet of RMUTL Research Activities, is a special issue in
commemoration of the 10th anniversary of RMUTL. We are all eager to vastly improve
our research output by the next issue. Your continued support, advice and encouragement
would be highly appreciated.

Development of Internal Curing Concrete from Bottom Ash.


Iautogenous
n this research, effect of bottom ash as fine aggregate on
shrinkage of cement-only and binary binder

mortar were investigated. The autogenous shrinkage was


studied in mortar with the river sand replaced with bottom
ash at 0%, 10%, 20% and 30% by volume. Two types of
bottom ash having low water retainability (18.8%) and high
water retainability (29.6%) were used in this study. The
influence of types of cement (Type I, III and V) on
autogenous shrinkage of mortar with bottom ash was
investigated. The control mixture included only Ordinary
Portland Cement (OPC) while the binary mixtures were
prepared by blending the OPC with fly ash. The weight
percentage of replacement of cement by fly ash was 30%.
The results indicated that the use of bottom ash could
reduce autogenous shrinkage of mortar. The autogenous
shrinkage decreased with the increase of bottom ash content.
The high water retainability bottom ash was more effective
to reduce autogenous shrinkage than low water retainability
bottom ash.

Magnetic Resonance Couple Based Wireless PowerTransfer.


M
agnetic resonance couple based wireless power
transfer is a technology that power can be transferred

using magnetic resonance coupling between coils. The


wireless power transfer has been applied such as for medical
implants, wireless charging for electric car and portable
equipment and wireless control equipment. The study,
analysis and experimental of wireless power transfer were
performed. From testing results, the power can transferred
at maximum power 355 W at distance of coils 17 cm
with highest efficiency of power transfer 73.5 percentage.
A design of wireless power transfer to get high efficiency
the characteristics of parameters should be 1) inductance
of coils should be high 2) resistance of coils should be low
3) frequency should be high 4) load resistance should be
optimal. However, these parameters characteristics are not
appropriate for some application. So, improve efficiency
techniques should be considered.

Dried Longan Dehumidfying Machine by


Using a Microwave Prototype

(Supported by Industrial Technology Assistance Program:iTAP, National Science and Technology


Development Agency and Suphiraj Agriculture Pow Company Limited)

(
upported by Industrial Technology Assistance
Program:iTAP, National Science and Technology
Development Agency and Suphiraj Agriculture Pow
Company Limited)
The alternative in drying longan by fuel ovens is the design
and development of a microwave moisture (a microwave
prototype). which takes just 3 minutes thus reducing electricity
costs by 0.055 baht per kilogram. With the cost of fuel at
1.920 baht per kilogram, it can reduce the total cost by 0.247
Baht per kilogram. The Company can produce the product
at 10,416.67 kg per day. Therefore, the ability to reduce
costs is 2572.92 Baht per day.

Dehumidification by microwave is just a prototype
to be produced under real capacity. It will need to expand
the production capacity expected in expanding production
capacity moisture to dry longan with a microwave for about
an addition of 20 times. It can increase the capacity to 905.8
kg per hour, which can be produced from the dried longan
to about 551.25 kg per hour. Therefore, it can increase the
production by the prototype to 64.32 percent.

Cabinet Dryer forn Stevia Using heat source of Solar Energy


T
he objective of this research was to develop the stevia
dryer and drying process of stevia using heat sources from

infrared gas burners and solar energy. The idea is appropriate


to the area of community enterprise of planted stevia group
with a Om-Long village, AmphoeSamoeng, Chiang Mai.
The agenda was to fix the temperature and time of drying,
as well as reduce the use of natural wood as fuel.
The principles of stevia dryer are extracted from two parts:
the first is a function of the gas system, with infrared gas
burners to heat the room. The heat is transferred to a heat
supply by a hot air fan. The heat fins are adapted to transmit
and distribute the heat to the room stevia and to the second
part of the solar system. The solar panels receive heat from
a hot reservoir to be sent to the drying stevia. Dryer can do
the drying process for up to 3 kg. Experimentation consisted
approximately 76.68% (wb) of humidity and the moisture
used 3-5% (wb) content of dried stevia. The temperature
applied in the experiment was at 40, 50 and 60 C. The fan
speed was at 1,120, 1,400 and 1,866 rpm respectively: it was
being tested by using a heat source from the solar energy to
determine the relationship of temperature and time that is
suitable for the dried stevia.

Eco Eco-Efffiiciency Rice Products


T
his research focuses onSocial Innovation development
to simultaneously enhance the competitiveness of rice
products and eco-friendly rice production in the community
participatory model. Conventional rice production was
assessed for environmental impacts emphasizing on Global
Warming Potential by the Lice Cycle Assessment method.
The critical spots for greenhouse gas emission were identified, and the appropriate mitigation methods were discussed
and implemented with community acceptance. To enhance
the competitiveness, the story of rice products were created
based on nutritional value of rice varieties, eco-friendly rice
production method and the community context. The concept
of Smallholder Market Led Production was also used to
create sustainable production. This research was performed
in two communities within the Northern area, at Baan Sam
Kha village, Mae Ta District, Lampang Province. We could
cut down 53% of greenhouse gas emission from rice production (HomLanna Rice) and we could increase the profit 150
to % from selling rice product. At Baan Lhaung, Mae Wang
District, Chiangmai Province, in the highland community,
we could decrease 45% of greenhouse gas emission from
rice production (BeuNer Moo Rice) and we could raise the
profit to 250% from selling rice product.

Native fishes in Nan Province

The Survey on Diversity of Fish in Sa River (A Tributary of Upper Nan River Basin)
Nan Province, Northern Thailand

he Sa River is particularly important to the communities in the WiangSa District,


Nan, Province. But the river is under serious threat. Poor water quality affects the
type of diversity in fishes. Also, the shift from a species of fish become naturally
unavoidable. The research team conducted a survey of the fish that was in the river
to establish a data base for the agencies involved in the management of local natural
resources, and awareness to the community. The aim was in supporting care for the
natural resources of the river. A survey found that there were fishes that composed
of 8 Orders, 23 families, 49 genera and 54 species. The most dominant order is
Cypriniformes. The most dominant family is Cyprinidae. The three species were
the Garracambodgiensis, Mystacoleucusobtusirostris and Opsariuskoratensis. They
were wildly distributed in the river. The three species, namely Hemimyzonnanensis,
Schisturamenanensis and Sectoriaatriceps are an endemic species to the river. Two
alien species, Clariasgariepinus and Oreochromisniloticus were collected. One rare
species, known as Yasuhikotakiamorleti, was found.

Developed of Production Process Baked Crispy


Pork Rinds (Kab Moo)
F
ried pork cracker is made by using high-temperature oil.
The process can make the product swell thus causing oil to deteriorate
quickly with odor and change colors. The consequences are from the chemistry
changes when oil is reused for frying. It causes hydrocarbon which can
lead to having cancer. The fried pork cracker contains fat and high-calorie.
There is always a smell of rancid when it is kept for too long.
Production of baked pork cracker, was funded by the Thailand Research Fund
(TRF). Semi-finished goods of pork cracker would be taken to bake in the
microwave oven at 1000-800 watt or in the electrical oven at 200-250 C
for 2-5 minutes so that pork cracker is safe to eat from reusing oil. The
fat contains 10-15%, which is less than fried pork cracker; it contains
20 - 45% fat, and it can be preserved much longer. (Pork cracker
products, semi-finished goods for the microwave is registered as patent
No. 5471. Baked pork cracker production is registered as patent No.
5036 from the Department of Intellectual Property, MOC).

The semi-finished goods of pork cracker project was used
processed in the microwave oven. The project was awarded from the
TRF (Outstanding Research Award, 2008), the Seoul International
Invention Fair 2008 in Korea on 11-15 December 2008 (the

Comparison of Differences Between the wood Degradation


by Monokaryon (n) and Dikaryons (2n) of White Fungus
(Cambodian Phellinus linteus)
S

horea wood is one of the most leading manufacturers in


the wooden industries. In our experiment, we found that
used Shorea wood block starts to decay with a white rot
fungus of Cambodian Phellinuslinteus, which comprises
two different types of mycelia, namely monokaryon (n)
and dikaryon (2n). This fungus was first used for studying
changes in the wood chemistry and structure of Shorea
(shoreaobtusa). Shorea wood block degradation was determined by (1) wood weight loss (2) Fourier Transform
Infrared (FTIR) and (3) Scanning Electron Microscopy
(SEM). SEM was used to observe the physical changes of
the Shorea wood blocks and it showed that the wood cells
were changed. In conclusion, Cambodian P. linteusmonokaryons are more appropriate for use in the paper industry
(biopulping and bio-breaching) and enzyme technology than
dikaryons, due to monokaryons leaving no dark pigment and
residues from fruiting bodies. Moreover, monokaryons have
a simple genetic system (n) for genetic and biochemical
analyses. (This was a joint research cooperation with

F
ats are widely used in broiler diets. Fats are almost three
times higher in energy content of dietary fats than other
feedstuffs. The influence of age of broilers on the apparent
metabolizable energy (AME) and total tract digestibility
of fat in five fat sources (tallow, soybean oil, poultry fat,
palm oil and a 50:50 blend of tallow and soybean oil) was
investigated in this study. The results showed that AME of
fats and total tract digestibility of fat were influenced by the
age of broilers. The utilization of fat in young broilers was
limited but improved with an advancing age. Soybean oil
showed the highest AME and fat digestibility while tallow
had the lowest AME and fat digestibility. It may also be
advisable to choose the right fat source to formulate the
diets for broiler chickens to optimize the utilization of fat

Product Development Community

A Study of Production of Paper from Lathe Mango Wood Chip Toward

ango wood is used as a raw material in the manufacturing economy handicrafts sector. As a significant item in the
Chiang Mai province, it is the key raw material in the production of handicrafts for lathing wood. The process of crafting
wood lathe parts is for converting wood into the shape of the piece. The unused parts become wood wastes that amount to
several hundred tons each year. Some of these woods are used as fuel for drying pieces of handicrafts. Ironically, burning
causes pollution to the environment and creates a health hazard for the community. Meanwhile, paper crafting is one of
the famous products in the design and development of paper. Its uniqueness is by continuingly taking the amount of waste
from the loathe wood. It is used as raw material in the production of paper from the waste of lathe wood in the community
and the paper manufacturers. The idea is to reduce the cost of production due to raw material sources in the area near the
vendor community. It has a sufficient amount for paper manufacturers. Also, the solutions for the problem wastes from
the production model can return some benefit and increase the revenue for the community.

Piece of scrap loath wood can also be processed into various products.

county of Kong river.
T

he cross-border research is a qualitative research aiming to understand the


architecture of Tai peoples residence in Chiangrai, Phayao, and Nan in the
northern region of Thailand, Chiang Tung of Myanmar and Xainyabuli of
Lao. Data collection is done by documentation, surveying, interviewing the
artisans, conducting architectural measurement of the Tai residence, taking
photography and interviewing the community leaders. The results from the
research found that the ways of life, culture and beliefs of the Tai ethnic
groups (Tai Lue, Tai Yuan, Tai Roi, and Tai Ner) affected the location, size,
the utility space and residence style. The findings were found to be coherent,
multi-faceted, and multi-dimensional. But they were not in the same model
or had all elements in the group of traditional wooden houses from 5 sources
in the three countries that were surveyed.

Tai ethnic groups have the same cultural roots. It is consistent in many respects. But there are many different reasons, such as
their different way of life, climate, and fluctuating sources that are
located from different countries. Tai traditions in Thailand remain
low. Some remain in the conservation process. But in Chiang Tung
and Xaingabuli, the concept of conservation is not quite clear. The
persistence of traditional Tai is natural. This is due to minimal negative factors such as
having socio-econoic progress. There is more density of traditional Tai habitation
villages in Thailand.

has a handle made of tusk is always used as a superstitious equipment, such as for healing illness or an important device
for conducting an exorcist called MeedHeak. MeedHeak is a phony knife that is made from many magic materials, and
should be used in conjunction with a spell. Most of the beautiful knives are built by Shan artisans from the Shan state.
Small knives were given to female who are betrothed. Some knives were built for as an offering of Buddha images or
PhraThat, which is a pagoda that contains Buddha relics inside. Knives of some ethnic groups, such as Lawa or Karen in
some areas, have their own unique quality. Some original Tai Yuan knives from some areas also have a unique quality, for
example, MeedKeawKhaoKwaiKadWai (a knife made from buffalos horn and covered by rattan) from Phrae province.
Lanna ancient knives are considered as a kind of amulet. Some blades were made from sacred iron, and had been ritually
formalized as a sacred thing called Dab Sarikanchai or a sacred sword. Nowadays, Lanna ancient knives are not easy to
find after they became a worthy collection for collectors. Nowadays people have a lack of basic knowledge and technical
knowledge about knives and swords, both of. This is a study of Lanna knives and swords, as well as on local handicraft
to promote Lanna peoples awareness of ancient wisdom.

Potential Logistices Development of Great Mae Khong


Sub-Region Countries for ASEAN Economic Community
Approach: Chiang Saen Port
T
he objective of the study was to identify the potential logistics development of the Chiang Saen Port Great Mae
Khong Sub-Region countries for the upcoming ASEAN Economic Community. The findings were used to develop and

improve the sustainability of logistics operation at the Chiang Saen Port. This was a qualitative research that conducted an
Individual-Depth Interview with 20 Key Opinion Leaders by using a Purposive or Judgmental Sampling which
consisted of Chiang Saen Port logistic officers, representatives of successful SMEs business in logistic market, and board
of management in logistic business of the public sectors. The result of the study demonstrated that the ASEAN Economic
Community is aimed towards integrating with ASEAN to be a single market and production base; including the use of
resources to maximize benefit achievement benefit, free migration, and capital liberalized, no restriction on trading with
ASEANs currencies, free multinational stock trading, and no limitation on service competition. All these treats lead the
ten member countries to be a free single production base in transporting products, services, investments, labor and fund. It
is also influenced on the development approach in Northern Thailands logistics. In order to contribute to sustainability, the
development should focus on 1) Creating a competitive advantage strategy in logistics with a focus on creating Economies
of Scope to be able to reduce costs by sharing resources between various organizations which aims to manage cost, energy,
environment and risk insurance. 2) Applying the use of Information System and technology in logistics management to
achieve competitive advantage for successful operation by creating and developing new innovation. The focus should
also be on modern management by applying innovation and new technology to increase the efficiency of logistics. And 3)
Logistics development should be cooperated by public and private sectors, domestic and international network to resolve
the problem of rules, regulations, and promotion to create fairness among ASEAN member states.

n this study, red pigment extraction from red beetroot was


investigated using pulsed electric field (PEF) treated tissue
in a solidliquid extraction process. Thin disks of the tissue
were subjected to PEF at different intensities and, 34 min
after the treatment, the release of red pigment and ionic
species into an isotonic solution was measured in situ using
a spectrophotometer and a conductivity meter.

pulses of 2 ms at 5 kV/cm field strength, with a peak
current of 1 kA, the samples released about 90% of total
red colouring and ionic content following 1 h aqueous extraction. The increase in tissue electric conductivity after
PEF treatment correlated approximately linearly with the
extraction yield of red pigment and ionic species only up
to an extraction level of 6080%

Application of High Voltage Direct Current for Smoke


Collecting in Cooking Process
In this paper, the particulate matter collector from the
in-house cooking by using an electrostatic precipitation
technique was designed and developed by using the PWM
signal generation technique to control the pulsed switching voltage via the Flyback converter circuit in order to
generate the high voltage output of the circuit. The TBE
Flyback model TLF14689 was used with the power
MOSFET to generate the operating frequency of 20 kHz
with the duty cycle of 75 % in order to obtain the high DC
voltage of about 10 kV for establishing the high electric field
strength within the collector in this study. The developed
collector consists of the collecting plate that is made of the
metal sheet, and the discharge electrode is made of the wire
mesh. The distance between the collecting plate and the
discharge electrode was about 2 cm. The current-to-voltage
characteristic and the total collection efficiency of the
developed collector were experimentally studied in this
study. It was shown that the current-to-voltage characteristic
of this collector for the corona voltage between 0 and 10 kV
had a discharge current in the range of about 50 to 375 A.
Finally, the total collect.

Plant root-growth Promoting substance Product from Bacteria.


Production of plant root-growth promoting substance from
bacterial fermentation for using in agriculture.
T
he plant root-growth promoting substance is produced
by the fermentation of bacteria (Methylobacteriumradiotol-

erans ED5-9) which is a natural product that is safe for both


users and consumers. It is also environmentally-friendly
and can be used in agriculture e.g; cutting, grafting, and
as an ingredient in the media of plant tissue culture. The
substance product has been developed for convenient use
in the formulas such as stock solution, powder and cream.
Moreover, the production process is easy and low in cost.
The farmer or the community can, therefore, do their own
home-made fermentation broth for use. It also reduces the
use of chemical synthetic substance which is dangerous to
health.

Afterword
Dr. Kiyoshi Yoshikawa,
Professor Emeritus,
Kyoto University, Japan

After retiring for 6 years as Executive Vice-President for Research of
Kyoto University, Japan, I had the great honor and pleasure to be invited to stay at
RMUTL in the beautiful city of Chiang Mai a month ago. Then, I was told that they
were going to hold the tenth anniversary in January, 2015. They were preparing
special brochures and other items in commemoration of the
upcoming 10th anniversary. There, I dared to propose a Research Activities,
Special Issue in commemoration of the 10th anniversary of RMUTL. To my
surprise, the proposal was immediately accepted.

Despite my great worry that Thailand is known as the country of
Sabai, Sabai, they immediately took action and started designing, collecting
data, allotting responsible persons, timetables and soon, which was to me
really a great surprise, since I have been visiting Thailand for almost 14 years.

While wishing them to keep the beautiful Thai culture Sabai, Sabai,
derived from the wisdom inherent in Thai people, it is to be well noted that
a Reep, Reep will be rather essential and mandatory for Thai people in the
near future in order to enter the international research competitiveness, or
after ASEAN Integration, which is to start in December, 2015.


Nevertheless, I do personally and strongly wish Thai researchers
to work hard, of course, but wish them to maintain the beautiful culture of
Sabai, Sabai, which Thai people established over a long time to make daily
life more comfortable and peaceful.

It is my great pleasure and honor to be given the opportunity of
participating in publishing this brochure together with many RMUTL people.
I sincerely wish that this brochure will inspire all RMUTL researchers in the
upcoming decade.
