Digital Libraries and Digital Preservation

Abstract: Today Digital Technology (computers and communication technology) is enabling information to be created, manipulated, disseminated, located and stored with increasing ease over the traditional one. On the other side Technological Obsolescence is the result of evolution of technology: as newer technology appears, older ones ceased to be used. Consequently, information, which relies on obsolete technology, becomes inaccessible. And preserving access to this (digital) information poses a significant challenge to the Library and Information Community. The present study highlights the digital preservation techniques and issues involved with it.

Replication Algorithm for Hadoop Distributed File System

Abstract:   Distributed file System forms the basis of those computing paradigms which implement network intensive frameworks. In literature many distributed file systems are exist. Hadoop Distributed file system (HDFS) is popular Distributed File System for storing, processing and accessing large data. HDFS implemented by Apache Hadoop which is the core component of Hadoop. Hadoop Distributed File System stores data on commodity machines, providing very high aggregate bandwidth across the cluster. The main objective of this paper is to mimic the behavior of HDFS and propose a new replication strategy. In order to achieve this we have simulated all the architectural components of HDFS like name node and datanodes. Then we implemented and verified all the procedures of HDFS's client, reading files from HDFS, writing files into HDFS, heartbeat messages and block reports from datanodes to namenode. The advantage of proposed replication strategy is that the name node dynamically allocates replica nodes by incorporating dynamic load balancing technique.

Ubiquitous Computing Technique: Ambient Intelligence (AmI)

Abstract:  Computing Ambient intelligence (AmI) refers to electronic environments that are sensitive and responsive to the presence of people. Ambient intelligence is a vision on the future of consumer electronics, telecommunication and computing that was originally developed in the late 1990s for the time frame 2010–2020. In the Ambient Intelligence world, devices work in concert to support people in carrying out their everyday life activities, tasks and rituals in easy and natural way by using information and intelligence that are hidden in the network connecting these devices. As these devices grow smaller, more connected and more integrated into our environment, the technology disappears into our surroundings until only the user interface remains perceivable by users. Ambient intelligence is closely related to the long term vision of an intelligent service system, in which technologies are able to automate a platform embedding that is required in devices for powering context aware, personalized, adaptive and anticipatory services. Ambient Intelligence = Ubiquitous Computing + Intelligent social user interfaces

Secure Document Printing

Abstract: In today's scenario, most of organization use document processing devices like printers, scanner and fax machines etc., on network. Many confidentiels and important data and documents are handling by these devices. This may cause document theft or snooping. The miss use and loss of sensitive data may damage the réputation of organization or any employée. Such kind of loss may lead to crime or fraud also. That’s why need of Security should be apply on such équipements. Printing security prevent user from document theft. Most of printer manufacturing companies provide security solutions but 90% people are not aware about security solutions. This unawareness causes the leakage of confidential data. This paper highlights the better printing security solutions and make people aware about that solution. Through these security solution, printing of Secure data will be improve and protect sensitive data. In this security solution, security will be done through password protection.  When user will print document, User will get option for security of data. If user chooses security of data then user has to enter user name with password. At the printer side, job will be held on printer till the user unlocks the document through password. With this technique user will not only be aware about security solutions but also user will Secure data

An Approach towards Pattern Recognition for Webpage Accessing in Web Mining

Abstract:   The popularity of World Wide Web (WWW) is increasing day by day as technology changing and it is the best way of communication and sharing information on the network. WWW serves as a source for sharing different kinds of information and Data. There are numbers of websites available on the web but still requirements for the new web pages arise every day and to accomplish this requirement, new web page are added day by day. Vast amount of information is available on web. It is very difficult to retrieve user’s choice information and data from the web pages within second. To overcome this problem certain suitable pattern of web page arrangements are required to full fill the user’s requirement. The log data is the base to resolve the accessibility time and pattern search. The web usage mining is a technique of web mining used to extract knowledge from web data. In this paper we suggest new pattern that gives a minimum access time with respect to a most frequent pattern and Maximum hits pattern.

Key Concepts of 5G Mobile Technology

Abstract: Technology has no boundaries. The future is becoming more uncertain as the years pass by. We have seen how technology has advanced over the past few years. But there is need to move beyond the whole idea that an increase in “G” merely means an increase in capacity 5G technologies will change the way most high bandwidth users access their phones. Having a bird eye view on statistics, we have got more than 4.7 billion mobile phone users on our plane The evolution of mobile network started from 1G, 2G, 3G and 4G which will gradually move to the 5G called the next generation, through telecommunication critics had come into conclusion that 4G is a deliberate distraction from 3G. But technological changes in the wireless mobile communication network will continue, because there are over 5.2 billion registered mobile phone users in the world as at January 2011 according to ITU compared to the 4.66 billion registered users in 2010. The advancement in the previous generation wireless network to 4G was carried out by some group of researchers. The aim for advancement is to provide a comprehensive and secure Internet Protocol solution with much faster data speeds than the third generation network, while the 5G is expected to have peak download and upload speeds of more than 1Gbps, implementation of standards for 5G would likely be around the year 2020. This paper will focus on the adverse limitation of the previous generation networks, present challenges of 4G, expected challenges in the NGN and will provide some fresh perspectives on the issue of 5G through the technological changes, not as an absolute isolated phenomenon but as part of the generational evolution in telecommunication.

To Reduce Process Parameters at Metalizing Shop and Ultrasonic Washing

Abstract:   Ultrasonic washing is a process that uses ultrasound (usually from 20–400 kHz) and an appropriate cleaning solvent (sometimes ordinary tap water) to clean items. The ultrasound can be used with just water, but use of a solvent appropriate for the item to be cleaned and the type of soiling present enhances the effect. Cleaning normally lasts between three and six minutes, but can also exceed 20 minutes, depending on the object to be cleaned. The “ultrasonic washing  and “metalizing process” of manufacturing the Reflectors of head lights are studied in detail and the problem areas that contribute more significantly to the defects are identified. We found the major problem is due to the collective effect of cycle time of “ultrasonic washing machine and in metalizing due to “improper handling and maintenance of vacuum chamber used in metalizing shop”. After the detailed study and observation some of the inconsistencies in above process andmachine maintenance were removed that resulted in quality improvements and defects at theprocess stage were reduced in metalizing shop from 9.282% to 6.356 % and in Ultrasonic washing is from 2.06% to 1.23% by using quality control tools such as Histogram, Paretochart, Fishbone diagram and X-Bar and R-Chart.

Paper Title:

Assessing Sampling Application in Manufacturing Products

Abstract: Statistical inference, namely, an inference that goes beyond the information contained in a set of data, one must always proceed with caution. One must decide carefully how far one can go in generalizing from a given set of data, whether such generalizations are at all reasonable or justifiable, whether it might be wise to wait until there are more data, and so forth. Indeed, some of the most important problems of statistical inference concern the appraisal of the risks and the consequences to which one might be exposed by making generalizations from sample data. This includes an appraisal of the probabilities of making wrong decisions, the chances of making incorrect predictions, and the possibility of obtaining estimates that do not lie within permissible limits. In this research paper, our attention will be directed largely toward engineering applications, but we shall not hesitate to refer also to other areas to impress upon the reader the great generality of most statistical techniques. Thus, the reader will find that the statistical method which is used to estimate the average coecient of thermal expansion of a metal serves also to estimate the average time it takes a secretary to perform a given task, the average thickness of a pelican eggshell, or the average IQ of first year college students. Similarly, the statistical method that is used to compare the strength of two alloys serves also to compare the eectiveness of two teaching methods, the merits of two insect sprays, or the performance of men and women in a current-events test.

Paper Title:

Water- Diesel Micro Emulsion as Alternate Fuel in Diesel Engine-An Overview

Abstract:  The need for more efficient fuel and a less polluted environment are the prominent research areas that are currently being investigated by many researchers worldwide. Water-in-diesel emulsion fuel (W/D) is one of the promising alternative fuel. It can improve the combustion efficiency of a diesel engine and reduce harmful exhaust gases, especially nitrogen oxides (NOx) and particulate matter (PM). There have been many W/D emulsion fuel studies, especially regarding performance, emissions and micro-explosion phenomena. This review paper gathers and discusses the recent advances in emulsion fuel studies in respect of the impact of W/D emulsion fuel on the performance and emission of diesel engines. It is agreed by most of the studies that W/D does result in an improvement in engine performance measurements when the total amount of diesel fuel in the emulsion is compared with that of the neat diesel fuel. NOx and PM exhaust gas emissions are greatly reduced by using the W/D emulsion fuel. Unburnt hydrocarbon (UHC) and carbon monoxide (CO) exhaust emissions are found to be increased by using the W/D emulsion fuel.

A Review on Performance and Emission Studies of CI Engine Fueled with Vegetable Oil and Bio-Diesel

Abstract: World energy demand is expected to increase due to the expanding urbanization, better living standards and increasing population. At a time when society is becoming increasingly aware of the declining reserves of fossil fuels beside the environmental concerns, it has become apparent that biodiesel is destined to make a substantial contribution to the future energy demands of the domestic and industrial economies. There are different potential feed stocks for biodiesel production. Non-edible vegetable oils which are known as the second generation feed stocks can be considered as promising substitutions for traditional edible food crops for the production of biodiesel.They are technically competitive with or offer technical advantages compared to conventional diesel fuel. Straight vegetable oil (SVO), an alternative fuel of petroleum diesel, is mainly used to reduce the environmental impact of emission without modifying engines. Specific fuel consumption increases for both SVO and bio-diesel compared with diesel fuel. The methyl asters of vegetable oils, known as biodiesel are becoming increasingly popular because of their low environmental impact and potential as a green alternative fuel for diesel engine and they would not require significant modification of existing engine hardware. Besides being a renewable and domestic resource, biodiesel reduces most emissions while engine performance and fuel economy are nearly identical compared to conventional fuels. SVO of rice bran oil (RBO), jatropha, karanja etc. are derived through oil extraction process from respective plant seeds. Experimental investigations have been carried out to examine properties, performance and emission of different blends of SVO (RBO and jetropha) and biodiesel (karanja) in comparison to diesel. Results indicate that blends of 25% RBO show results closure to diesel, Thermal efficiency was lower for unheated Jatropha oil compared to heated Jatropha oil and diesel. CO2, CO and HC were higher for Jatropha oil compared to that of diesel. These emissions were found to be close to diesel for preheated Jatropha oil. The engine performance and emissions with biodiesel of Karanja and its blends were comparable to the performance with diesel fuel. The BTE was about 3 - 5% lower with Karanja biodiesel and its blends with respect to diesel. The oxides of nitrogen from Karanja biodiesel and its blends were higher than diesel fuel at all loads and emissions such as CO, smoke density and HC were reduced as compared to diesel.

Numerical Simulation of Shell and Tube Heat Exchanger with and Without Baffles

Abstract:  Numerical simulations were carried out to study the temperature variations across a small sized shell and tube heat exchanger with and without baffles. Heat exchanger with 12 copper tubes arranged in stagger grid was considered for the numerical analysis. Diameter of the shell was assumed to be 40 mm and length as 100 mm. The outer diameter of the tubes was assumed to be 5 mm and inner diameter as 3 mm. Two segmental baffles each of 40 mm included diameter and 3.3 mm thickness were considered. Inlet temperature for the shell fluid (hot water) is assumed to be 95°C and for tube fluid (cold water) as 30°C. Flow rate of shell and tube fluids are assumed to be 1.2 liters per min and 1.388 liters per min respectively. It was observed from the results that the temperature drop for the heat exchanger with segmental baffles is 8oC greater than the heat exchanger without baffles across the shell side. Similarly, the temperature rise for the heat exchanger with segmental baffles is 6oC greater than heat exchanger without baffles across the tube side. The velocity, pressure variations had also been presented.

Prediction of Tool Chatter in Turning

Abstract: Tool chatter is an unstable regenerative phenomenon encountered frequently in turning operation. Identification and suppression of tool chatter improves the product quality and enhances tool life. Therefore, it becomes necessary to develop a suitable technique by the aid of which chatter can be identified and minimized. In this paper, simulation of tool chatter has been done considering a non-linear delay differential equation. Further, effect of various cutting parameters such as; depth of cut, feed rate and spindle speed on chatter have been studied. Moreover, chatter index (‘CI’) has been calculated to ascertain the severity of tool chatter.  Furthermore, regression analysis has been done to develop a mathematical model and explore the relationships between the cutting parameters and chatter severity. Hence, based on the Simulink model a new idea for identification and quantification of chatter has been proposed. Results conclude that developed model is very effective in prediction of chatter.

Tracking and Utilization of Maximum Energy with Fuzzy Logic Controller in Solar Power System

Abstract:  In view of the increasing crunch of shortage of energy demands, more attention is being concentrated on the renewable energy technologies. Compared to the traditional energy sources, the photovoltaic (PV) system which converts sunlight directly into electric power, releases no pollutants to environment, are going to be a major future energy source in tropical areas. Unlimited renewable energy is available in our country. Problem is how to utilize the renewable energy on economical basis. Day to day demand of energy is increasing rapidly in urban as well as rural areas of India. However, major disadvantages in using PV energy still exist including high installation cost. Since 1970, the PV price has continuously dropped but it is still high compared to Organic solar cell (OSC) which is new technologies. OSC is very inexpensive compared to PV so that the economical condition of villagers can be enhanced. In this research paper an attempt has been made and improves the efficiency to design a software program to survey the solar energy and its utilization for the power generation.   A software skill program has been developed through which the solar radiation can be estimated in different areas and the total power can be calculated, which can be generated through the solar energy. A scheme has been proposed for tracking maximum energy has implemented in this paper.

Performance Evaluation of Clustering Based Routing Protocols for Improvement of Energy Efficiency In Wireless Sensor Networks

Abstract:  Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) are autonomous networks of spatially distributed the sensor nodes which sensor node that are capable of wirelessly communicating with each other network. The different metrics, network lifetime and utility and energy consumption are key parameters that determine the performance. For maximizing network lifetime is a major objective for designing and deploying a wireless sensor network (WSN). The clustering sensor nodes are an effective topology control approach helping achieve this goal. In this paper, present a new method to prolong the network lifetime based on the Improved Particle Swarm Optimization algorithm. This is an optimization method designed to select target nodes. Protocol takes into account both energy efficiency and transmission distance and relay nodes are used for the excessive power consumption of the cluster heads. The protocol results in better distributed sensors and a well-balanced clustering system enhancing the network’s lifetime,  protocol with comparative protocols by varying a number of parameters, e.g., the number of nodes, the network area size, and the position of the base station. The comparative results show that the any one protocol performs well against other comparative protocols in various stages.

Paper Title:

Performance Analysis of Energy Efficient Depth Based Routing Protocols Used In Underwater Wireless Sensor Networks

Abstract: The unique features of Underwater Wireless Sensor Networks (UWSNs) motivated the research community to explore different aspects of these networks. Sensor nodes have energy constraint because replacing the batteries of sensor nodes is an expensive and difficult task in aqueous environment. Routing is one of the most important and challenging function in UWSNs, for energy efficient data communication. Providing solutions for interference-free communication are also essential. In this paper, we review different routing for energy-efficient and interference-aware routing protocols and evaluate the performance of some selected depth based protocols used for UWSN like DBR ,REEP, EEIRA, EEORS named as   Depth-Based Routing Protocol (DBR), Reliable and Energy Efficient Protocol Energy Efficient Interference And Route Aware, Energy Efficient Optimal Relay Selection Protocol,  metric used for DBR is the depth of the sensor node as forwarding metric for sending the data to the Base station. The data from source to destination is forwarded in multi hop fashion. Sender node includes its depth information in the data packet and broadcast to the nodes within its   range. REEP uses multi sink architecture, in which more than one sink node is deployed at sea surface for collecting data. Several nodes are placed at bottom of ocean whereas the remaining are randomly deployed within ocean. In EEORS, Sensor nodes are randomly deployed in a three dimensional underwater network and is placed into three zones based on depth. The EEIRA protocol combines the direct and relay forwarding mechanisms while transmitting the packets from source node to destination node. The relaying process depends on the process of selection of the best relay from a set of relay nodes. This paper evaluates the performance   of these protocol schemes and is validated through simulation and the results demonstrate better performance in terms of improved energy efficiency, maximized throughput and minimizing end to end delay while transmitting the data.

Paper Title:

Assessment of Flow to a Collector Pipe Placed below the Riverbed

Abstract:  Collector pipe is installed below riverbed to take advantage of riverbed filtration and to obtain safe and adequate drinking water. The location of collector pipe affects the quantity and quality of filtered water.  If the distance from riverbed is more, the quantity will be less but the quality will be better and vice versa. In this study, in order to estimate the yield, conformal mapping technique can be used to solve the flow problem under steady state condition.  For a given drawdown at the well caisson, the flow per unit length of collector pipe has been estimated for various depths of installation and diameters of the collector pipe. A collector pipe of 25 m length and 0.5m diameter placed at a height of 5m above the impervious base in a riverbed of 10m thick yields 40m3/day filtered water corresponding to 1m drawdown in well caisson, and 1.0 m/day hydraulic conductivity of riverbed material. For sandy silt soil riverbed material that has   hydraulic conductivity of 0.1 m/day, the yield would be 40m3/day. Therefore, in such medium, several parallel collector pipes are to be laid and to be connected to a well caisson to provide good quality and quantity of water. If hydraulic conductivity is 1m/day, a single pipe of 25m length can supply 160 m3 / day filtered water for a drawdown of 4m in well caisson.

Abstract:  Pulse Detonation technology which is a supersonic combustion technology, will take years to develop fully as pulse detonation engines. Pulse detonation engines (PDE) are the new area of interest of aero engine researchers, due to the high specific impulse, these engines have found a candidature for future aerospace applications. In this technology, rather than burning fuel at constant pressure, it is burnt at constant volume which causes generation of a shock wave with the help of some obstacles and maintain this shockwave to the exhaust. PDE is simple in construction and low in cost. It consists of combustor, Shchelkin spiral, ignition system, nozzle & cooling arrangements, which are discussed in the paper. Due to these features, these engines are a potential candidate for various applications. This research aims with the design of a new configuration of PDE for attaining the maximum thrust. Configuration design of PDE is dependent upon PDE performance parameters, understanding various integration challenges related to PDE system. Configuring PDE system includes optimization of performance parameters and PDE combustion chamber for maximum thrust. Configuring PDE tube also includes understanding the physics and chemistry of pulse tube, DDT (Deflagration to Detonation Transition) devices plus its phenomenon, fuel injection system, ignition system and PDE control system

To Study the Effect of Silica Based Yttrium Cerium Hybrid Sol-gel Coating on Hot Corrosion of Boiler Steel (MS 210)

Abstract: Hot corrosion is major problem in industrial machinery. It results in major losses in power generation sector. One of the prominent sector is Boiler tubes in fire tube boilers. Various salts like Sodium Sulphate, Sodium chloride and Vanadium Pentoxide contribute to hot corrosion in boiler tubes. To eradicate these problems various types of coatings are being studied and being introduced. Sol-gel technique is relatively new method of coating preparation and with time has proved to be a lot cheaper and reliable when compared to other coating techniques. Instead of using single element of coating, now combination of two or more is being introduced to overcome the limitations of a single element coating. Rare earth elements had also shown good corrosion resistance and they can also be incorporated in combination with other elements. In present research, hybrid sol-gel coating of silica based yttrium cerium was prepared and tested on mild steel MS 210 as mild steel is widely used as boiler tubes material. Bare and coated samples were subjected to cyclic oxidation with molten salt environment. SEM-EDS and X-Ray mapping were done on these specimens. These tests revealed that sol-gel coating is efficient in providing protective coat on specimen under hot corrosion conditions.

Investigation on the Application of Solid Lubricants in Turning Operation

Abstract:  Machining of materials has received wide attention because increased use of various machining processes in industrial application. So it is required to improve the quality of machining by various means. Turning is one of the most fundamental processes of metal removal. The heat generated in the cutting zone during turning is critical in deciding the workpiece quality and tool life. To avoid the effects of heat generated during machining, cutting fluids are applied to provide proper lubrication and cooling. In this work experiments the effort is made to assess the applicability of solid lubricants in machining process. Experiments are performed on EN 31 high carbon alloy steel material with tungsten carbide insert tool in dry and wet and solid lubricants environment. The process performance is studied in terms of cutting temperature, cutting forces, tool wear, surface roughness and power consumption. Experiments are also performed with selecting various process parameters and solid lubricants mixed with SAE 40 base oil with different proportion. The experimental results revealed that to solid lubricants performs better as compare to dry and wet machining. The improvement in output parameters of process is observed in solid lubricant assisted machining.

Stochastic Modeling of Steam Generating System of a Power Plant

Abstract: In today’s world of the automation, it is impossible to survive without reliable systems. Thus, all the working engineering systems are expected to remain operative with the maximum efficiency for the maximum duration i.e. reliable operation. In process plants to achieve the high availability and productivity, it is necessary that all systems/subsystems remain in upstate for a longer duration of time. However, these systems/subsystems are subjected to random failures due to destitute design, lack of operative skills and erroneous manufacturing techniques etc. causing heavy production losses. Each failure can be brought back to their operating states after repair or replacement in minimum possible down time. The plant working conditions and the repair strategies play an important role in maintaining the operating systems, operative for maximum duration i.e. optimal system availability. This can be accomplished only through performance evaluation and analysis of all the operating systems of the plant. The system performance can be quantified in terms of the availability if the operating system is modeled mathematically and analyzed in real working conditions. The availability analysis gives the probability for how long time the system being in operating condition. The basic aim of the present research work is to develop the availability models (under steady state conditions) and maintainability analysis to improve the performance of steam generating system of a Power plant concerned. The Markovian approach is used to find the optimum availability level, which is near to 90%.

Experimental Study of Compressive and Tensile Strength on Green Concrete with Partial Replacement of the Cement using Marble Slurry

Abstract:  Advance concrete technology can reduce the consumption of natural resources and energy sources thereby lessen the burden of pollutants on environment. Leaving the waste materials to the environment directly can cause environmental problem. Hence the reuse of waste material has been emphasized. Waste can be used to produce new products or can be used as admixtures so that natural resources are used more efficiently and the environment is protected from waste deposits. Marble stone industry generates both solid waste and stone slurry. Whereas solid waste results from the rejects at the mine sites or at the processing units, stone slurry is a semi liquid substance consisting of particles originating from the sawing and the polishing processes and water used to cool and lubricate the sawing and polishing machines. Stone slurry generated during processing corresponds to around 38-40% of the final product from stone industry. This is relevant because the stone industry presents an annual output of 68 -70 million tones of processed products. As per analysis of various review articles and research we have studied that the study the behavior of concrete, having partial replacement of cement with waste marble powder M25 grade for which the marble powder is replaced by an experimental study was carried out and the effect on compressive strength and split tensile strength characteristics (0%, 4%, 8%, 12%, 16%, 20%) was studied. The result of this present investigation indicates that the replacement of 12% of cement with waste marble powder attains maximum compressive and tensile strength. The optimum percentage for replacement of marble powder with cement and it is almost 12% cement for both cubes and cylinders and it also minimize the costs for construction with usage of marble powder which is freely or cheaply available more importantly. Therefore the scientific and industrial community must commit towards more sustainable practices. There are several reuse and recycling solutions for this industrial by-product, both at an experimental phase and in practical applications. These industrial wastes are dumped in the nearby land and the natural fertility of the soil is spoiled. In this research paper describes the feasibility of using the marble slurry in green concrete production as partial replacement of cement.

Production of Bio-Diesel and Experimental Investigation on Performance Analysis of Diesel Engine Fuelled with Bio-diesel

Abstract: Vegetable oil is one of the renewable fuels. Vegetable oils have become more attractive recently because of its environmental benefits and the fact that it is made from renewable resources. Vegetable oils include edible and non-edible oils. More than 95% of biodiesel production feed stocks come from edible oils since they are mainly produced in many regions and the properties of biodiesel produced from these oils are much suitable to be used as diesel fuel substitute . But the direct use of vegetable oils in fuel engines is problematic due to their high viscosity (about 11–17 times higher than diesel fuel) and low volatility; they do not burn completely and form deposits in the fuel injector of diesel engines. So we use some method to produce Bio-Diesel and get the performance investigation of engine and also observe the effect of different blend on exhaust emission.

Riverbank Filtration: An Efficient and Economical Drinking Water Technology

Abstract:  Riverbank filtration (RBF) is a water treatment technology that consists of extracting water from rivers by pumping wells located in the adjacent alluvial aquifer. During the underground passage, a series of physical, chemical, and biological processes take place, improving the quality of the surface water, substituting or reducing conventional drinking water treatment. Despite its extensive use in Europe and its emerging use in the United States, there are no scientific publications related to RBF use in Colombia, although apparently propitious settings exist. The main objective of this paper is to present a brief overview of the theoretical foundations of the technique, its benefits, and limitations.

Paper Title:

A Review of Kinetic Energy Recovery System

Abstract:  The term KERS refers to a technology that is used to recover the kinetic energy of any object that is lost while retardation or deceleration. Kinetic Energy Recovery System (KERS) is a system for recovering the moving vehicle's kinetic energy under braking and also to convert the usual loss in kinetic energy into gain in kinetic energy. Kinetic Energy Recovery Systems (KERS) is a type of regenerative braking system which has different approaches to store and reuse the lost energy. In case of automobiles, energy conservation can be done by using regenerative braking systems (RBS). When driving an automobile, a great amount of kinetic energy is wasted when brakes are applied, which then makes the start up fairly energy consuming. In case of automobiles, energy conservation can be done by using regenerative braking systems (RBS) by kinetic energy recovery system. So the target of recovering the energy lost in braking is completed under the various types of Kinetic Energy Recovery System (KERS). The vehicle may be built using various KERS designs, based on type of KERS used. This paper shows a detailed description about KERS.

Paper Title:

A review on Computational Study of Heat Transfer Losses in Film Cooling of Gas Turbine Blades

Abstract:  The ability and efficiency of today’s gas turbine engines are highly dependent on development of cooling technologies, among which film cooling is one of the most important. The flow around the turbine aerofoil is very complex and the protection provided by these film cooling flows is altered by a variety of physical and geometric effects. Some physical effects are: hole angle orientation, hole shape, longitudinal vortices, bulk flow pulsations, bulk flow pulsations on the vortices and film cooling on aerodynamic mixing losses. These different effects affect film cooling performance. In this paper CFD approaches are studied and reviewed discovering different aspects of film cooling. Investigation of heat transfer losses using CFD analysis is less expensive in general, as parameters can be simplified and analyzed each   individually.

A study on Life Cycle Assessment

Abstract: Over the last decades, stringent regulations forced the manufacturing industry to take concrete steps towards greener production. Despite reduction in total emissions through implementation of best available techniques (BATs), industrial waste generators still need guidance to minimize environmental impacts of manufacturing processes. Environmental impact assessment will soon become a compulsory phase. An impact assessment tool is therefore used for the environmental evaluation. The evaluation method used is the life cycle assessment (LCA) method. The quick and easy assessment of energetic and environmental performances contributes to determine the weak points of various products technologies and services or production processes or the best suited treatment in a specific context.

Pushover Analysis of High Rise Building Irregular in Plan

Abstract:  The paper investigates a systematic procedure to assess the behavior of a structure irregular in plan during the seismic excitation using both Linear Dynamic (Response Spectrum Method) and Non¬linear Static Analysis (Pushover) have been performed on the same structure. The literature pertaining to pushover analysis is reviewed .The pushover analysis procedure adopted in the present study is on similar lines with the procedure presented by Ashraf Habibullah and Stephen Pyle using SAP2000 V16 structural analysis software. The effect of earthquake force in an idealized G+20 storey building located in Mumbai under different drift values and different zones, with the help of pushover analysis has been investigated and the results were compared in terms of base shear, storey drift, spectral acceleration, spectral displacement and effective damping and effective time period. The present structure is studied using the evaluation procedures provided in ATC-40 and FEMA-356 documents and IS 1893:2002.

Paper Title:

Study on Comparison of Self Curing of Concrete by using Normal Coarse Aggregate and Recycled Coarse Aggregate

Abstract: A self-curing concrete is provided to absorb water from atmosphere to achieve better hydration of cement in concrete which solves the problem of lowered cement hydration because of improper curing and thus unsatisfactory properties of concrete. The present investigation involves the use of self-curing agent viz., polyethylene glycol (PEG) of molecular weight 6000 (PEG 6000) for dosages ranging between 0.5 to 2% by weight of cement added to mixing water. The experimental program was planned as the following. Total 120 cubes, 120 cylinders , 120 prisms were cast which involves different dosages (0%, 0.5%, 1% and 2%) of self-curing agent PEG-6000 for four different mixes (Mix 35 and Mix 45), under different curing conditions (indoor, conventional) with different aggregates (normal coarse aggregate and recycled coarse aggregate).Comparative studies were carried out for self-curing of recycled coarse aggregate and self-curing of normal coarse aggregate Comparative studies were carried out for water retentively, compressive strength, split tensile strength, flexural strength after 28 days for conventional cured and self-cured concrete. Self-curing concrete is better in all aspects compared to conventional cured concrete.

A Review Paper on Warm Mix Asphalt Chemical Technology

Abstract:  The objective of the study is to find out the various advantages of Warm Mix Asphalt Technology (WMA) as compared with the Hot Mix Asphalt Technology (HMA) with the help of different research Papers Published in National and International Journals. Road development part is considered as one of the significant hotspots for monetary development and improvement of a nation. Right now dominant part of the Indian roads flexible pavements, which are surfaced with Hot Mix Asphalt.  The fundamental concern with the generation of HMA is that it obliges extensive measure of vitality alongside arrival of discharge of emissions gases into the environment. Stringent environmental regulations and present need to lessen emissions, makes a need in the black-top industry to search for a substitute material or an innovation that diminishes the measure of vitality needed to create the HMA, with a specific end goal to combine energy savings and environmental advantages. WMA is the key solution. WMA innovation is useful for the earth in light of the fact that it delivers asphalt at temperatures 20 to 40°C lower in correlation to Hot Mix Asphalt. WMA offers numerous critical points of interest, for example, (a) energy savings, (b) diminished emissions and fumes, (c) diminished aging of binder, and (d) developed paving season into the chilly winter months and at spots situated on high elevations

Paper Title:

To Study the Effect of Process Variable on the Property of 2.25 Cr-1 Mo Steel In Gas Metal ARC Welding

Abstract:   In large steel fabrication industries such as shipbuilding, power plants and petro-chemicals, Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW) is the one of the most common technique for joining metals. Its various characteristics like high productivity, improved mechanical properties, easy of automation and overall lower cost of production makes it first choice for many fabrication processes. This paper focuses on the GMAW of 2.25 Cr-1Mo high temperature creep resistance steel, which is used in power plants, petrochemicals and in nuclear industries. In this work, we able to find the effect of welding parameters such as heat input and shielding gas on the properties of weld metal. The main objectives are to evaluate the hardness and tensile strength of weld metal.    In this experimental study, two welding parameters are used and they are: Heat input (high heat input & low heat input) ,  Shielding gas (Argon - Carbon-dioxide - Oxygen and Argon - Carbon-dioxide).The experimental results and their analysis clearly indicate that there is a possibility of sound welding with good combination of heat input and shielding gas. By controlling weaving, lower heat input can be achieve which causes increase in impact value of weld joint by three times and further reduces the chances of temper-embrittlement. Therefore, the work carried out clearly indicates that there is a considerable improvement in the quality of weld of 2.25 Cr-1Mo steel components when they are welded with low heat input using Ar-CO2as shielding gas as comparison with high heat input and Ar-CO2-O2 blend of shielding gas.

Estimation of Flow Characteristics to Collector Pipe Assuming As a Line Slit Laid Under Riverbed

Abstract: With the increase in population growth, there is tremendous pressure on the decision-makers to look for sustainable sources of safe and adequate water supply for different purposes. Therefore, during recent times, engineers are looking toward cost-effective process of water treatment. Collector wells constructed on the banks of a river are cost-effective means of supplying adequate and safe water supply to people living on the banks of a river. Collector pipes act as a carrier of water to the collector well. Collector pipes placed under a riverbed are the most effective in terms of quantity of water. Assuming the collector pipe as a line slit. In this study, an analytical method using conformal mapping has been suggested to estimate the yield, the entrance velocity, and the travel time of a parcel of water from the riverbed to the collector pipe along the shortest path. Using the travel time, the log cycle reduction in bacteria concentration has been found using logistic function. The entrance velocity is much less than the allowable entrance velocityAssuming that a drawdown of 5m is maintained, length of the collector pipe is 50m, and hydraulic conductivity k=0.35 m/day, the yield of the collector pipe is estimated as 236.0 m3/day. The bacteria concentration in the river water is reduced nearly by 1 (1.22) log cycle during lean flow period. Thus the position of the collector pipe (4.3 m from the riverbed) is not sufficient to reduce the bacterial concentration.

OLED: Most Promising and Modern Display Technology

Abstract:  As the time passes many changes have occurred in the field of display technology. Earlier light Emitting Diode (LEDS) and Liquid Crystal Displays (LCDS) are used for display but they have certain problems. LED (Light Emitting Diode) display which shows the numeric contain then after jumbo CRT (cathode ray tubes) which is used today also but due to the bulkiness of LED displays they required large area and it’s hard to carry these displays from one place to another place. To overcome this problem LCD (Liquid crystal display) has been developed which is lighter and easy to carry, but the main problem with LCD is that clear picture cannot be seen from different angles. These all problem will be overcome by the revolutionary discovery of OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diode). The concept in organic light emitting diode (OLED) devices with hole or electron limited electroluminescence show that it is possible to improve the light output and efficiency by significantly reducing the operating voltage. Owing to the advantages of solid-state, self emission, full color capability and flexibility, LED have been recognized as one of the most promising flat panel display technology and has stepped into commercialization. OLED have several advantages over flat panel displays made with LCD technology, which includes its lightweight and flexible plastic substrates, wider viewing angles, improved brightness, better power efficiency and quicker response time. One of the things that set OLED technology apart from the LCD and other technologies is its intrinsic ability to be flattened and rolled. Some of the drawbacks of OLED include shorter life span, poor color balance, poor outdoor performance, susceptibility to water damage etc. The application of OLEDs in electronics is on the increasing day by day from cameras to mobile to OLED televisions, etc. OLEDs are not yet widely used because of its higher manufacturing cost.

Paper Title:

A Review on Emission Studies of CI Engine Fuelled With Vegetable Oil and Bio-Diesel

Abstract:   Over consumption of earth natural resources has lead to a threat of extinct depletion. One more thing that has drawn public concern worldwide is deteriorating environmental conditions. Currently, major source of energy are fissile fuels and they are dominantly responsible for the emission of CO2.Vegetable oils and their derivatives (especially methyl esters), commonly referred to as “biodiesel,” are prominent candidates as alternative diesel fuels. They have advanced from being purely experimental fuels to initial stages of commercialization. They are technically competitive with or offer technical advantages compared to conventional diesel fuel. Straight vegetable oil (SVO), an alternative fuel of petroleum diesel, is mainly used to reduce the environmental impact of emission without modifying engines. Specific fuel consumption increases for both SVO and bio-diesel compared with diesel fuel. The methyl asters of vegetable oils, known as biodiesel are becoming increasingly popular because of their low environmental impact and potential as a green alternative fuel for diesel engine and they would not require significant modification of existing engine hardware. Besides being a renewable and domestic resource, biodiesel reduces most emissions while engine performance and fuel economy are nearly identical compared to conventional fuels. SVO of rice bran oil (RBO), jatropha, karanja etc. are derived through oil extraction process from respective plant seeds. Experimental investigations have been carried out to examine properties, performance and emission of different blends of SVO (RBO and jetropha) and biodiesel (karanja) in comparison to diesel. Results indicate that blends of 25% RBO show results closure to diesel, CO2, CO and HC were higher for Jatropha oil compared to that of diesel. These emissions were found to be close to diesel for preheated Jatropha oil. The comparison of MOEE (mahua oil ethyl ester) with diesel in terms of engine emission shows better results. The MOEE is found to burn more efficiently than diesel. The emission of carbon monoxide, hydrocarbon, oxides of nitrogen and smoke were decreased by 58, 63, 12 and 70%, respectively, in comparison with diesel. This study tacitly suggests that MOEE can be used as a substitute for diesel in diesel engine. The engine emissions with biodiesel of Karanja and its blends were comparable to diesel fuel. The oxides of nitrogen from Karanja biodiesel and its blends were higher than diesel fuel at all loads and emissions such as CO, smoke density and HC were reduced as compared to diesel.

Current Status of Carbon Dioxide Capture and Storage Technologies

Abstract: Global warming and climate change concerns have create global efforts to reduce the concentration of atmospheric carbon dioxide. Carbon dioxide capture and storage is considered a essential approach for meeting co2 emission reduction targets. In this paper various characteristic of carbon capture technologies are discussed including the state of the art technologies for carbon dioxide capture, separation, transport and life cycle analysis. The selection of specific carbon dioxide capture technology depends on the type of carbon dioxide generating plant and fuel used. Among those carbon dioxide processes absorption is the most mature and commonly adopted due to its higher efficiency and lower cost. Transportation of co2 is done by the method of pipeline. Saline aquifer is used for storage of carbon dioxide due to their enormous potential storage capacity. There are numerous problems to carbon capture storage consumption including the lack of carbon capture storage investment.
