Author: A. Haddout, M. Benhadou, F. Rhrich, B. Benhadou, G. Villoutreix

Abstract— We present in this paper an experimental study of the mechanical and morphological behavior of injected thermoplastic composites. We have shown the influence of the injection temperature and the mold temperature and the injection speed and the geometry of the mold cavity on the one hand on the fibers orientation and on the other hand on the tensile behavior and impact strength of polypropylene composites reinforced with 20 to 30% of short glass fibers. Particular attention has been paid to the contribution of the fiber / matrix interface in improving the mechanical performance of the material.

Improvement of Voltage output for Distribution System under Transient Condition with Dynamic Voltage Restorer

Authors: Brijesh Parmar, Shivani Johri, Manish Agrawal, Chetan Chodavadiya

Abstract— Voltage sags and swells in the medium and low voltage distribution grid are considered to be the most frequent type of power quality problems based on recent power quality studies. Their impact on sensitive loads is severe. In this paper, the performance of voltage-source converter-based series compensators used for load voltage control in electrical power distribution network has been analyzed and compared, when a nonlinear load is connected across the load bus. Possible control schemes and their effects on the oscillation attenuation are also studied. Such studied control schemes include the commonly used single voltage loop control, voltage feedback plus reference feed forward control, and double-loop control with an outer voltage loop and an inner current loop. This research paper described DVR principles and voltage restoration methods for balanced and/or unbalanced voltage sags and swells in a distribution system. Simulation results were presented to illustrate and understand the performances of DVR under voltage sags/swells conditions. The MATLAB simulation verification of the results derived has been obtained using a model of the three-phase DVR.

Keywords— Dynamic voltage restorer (DVR), Flexible Alternating Current Transmission System, (FACTS), load voltage control, nonlinear load.

Study of Flexural Strength in Steel Fibre Reinforced Concrete

Authors: Patil Shweta, Rupali Kavilkar

Abstract— Concrete possesses a very low tensile strength, limited ductility and little resistance to cracking. Various types of fibre reinforced concrete are being used against plain concrete due to their higher flexural strength, better tensile strength, modulus of rupture and crack resistance. In the present investigation properties of steel fiber reinforced concrete like flexure and compressive strength are studied. Tests were conducted to study the flexural and compressive strength of steel fibre reinforced concrete with varying aspect and varying percentage of fibre. In the experiments conducted four aspect ratio were selected i.e. 40,50,60,70 and percentage of steel in each case varied from 0.5% to 2.5% at interval of 0.5%. The various strength parameters studied are compressive strength and flexural strength as per the relevant IS standards. The experimental results indicate that the addition of steel fibre into concrete significantly increases the flexural strength. It also indicates that at constant percentage of fibre, that is 1.5% by increasing the aspect ratio of fibre from 40 to 70, flexural strength increased from 36.7% to 58.65%. The research paper proposes that due to these properties of steel fibre reinforced concrete, it can be used for the design of curvilinear forms.

Keywords— Experimental investigation, Fibre reinforced concrete, flexural strength, compressive strength, aspect ratio, steel fibres.

Generalized Model for Interactive Multimedia Tools Development, Used for Software Interface Implementation

Author: Maya Stoeva

Abstract — The power of applying models for application development and their interfaces, regardless of the technology used, is proven over time. With them are achieved: better structured system; saves time and money from the wrong directions for development of software; A better coordination between the different units in the case of larger projects. Multimedia interactive tools are part of software development, which not only became fashionable, but its importance continues to grow. Despite their greater use in practice, they are not available enough models yet to be used in their implementation. Famous ones have specific pros and cons of different types of projects that apply. This fact has provoked the author to do research in this area and to create a non-linear generalized model, combining the advantages and disadvantages of the known models. Thus, need to be adapted for various types of interactive applications. The purpose of this article is to describe the author created "generalized model". Other aim is to show where it is used to now, and where can be find applicability. In the considered model are defined and described specific processes that need to be taken under attention when developing a multimedia application.

Keywords — Generalized model, interactive tool, multimedia application, software interface, prototype, prototyping, wireframing, specific multimedia controls, usability

Removal of Cu+2 from Electroplating Industrial Wastewater by using Microwave Assisted Activated Carbon

Authors: Monal Dutta, Jayanta Kumar Basu

Abstract— Rapid growth of industrialization infixes toxic materials engendering significant environmental problems. Removal of various heavy metals is efficiently carried out by using commercial activated carbon but its high cost restricts its widespread use upto certain extent. Therefore, use of waste agricultural material based activated carbon has drawn considerable attention of many researchers. In the present investigation, copper is removed from electroplating industry waste water by using Acacia scrap wood based activated carbon. The carbon was prepared through carbonization technique followed by microwave activation and characterized by using BET surface area analyzer, Scanning Electron Microscopy, CHN analyzer and Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy. The activated carbon is found to have a high surface area and total pore volume of 695 m2 /g and 0.5 cc/g respectively. It was found that 99.9 % of Cu(II) removal efficiency and 98.63% of COD removal efficiency was achieved within first 80 min of the batch adsorption study with an initial concentration of 100 mg/L, adsorbent concentration of 1 g/L, pH of 6, temperature of 30 °C, particle size of 105 µm and agitation speed of 200 rpm. The kinetics of the adsorption follows the pseudo second order rate kinetics.

A Review Study on Minimum Quantity Lubrication in Machining

Authors: Anurag goyal, Jasvir S. Tiwana, Amrit Pal

Abstract- Machining is the wide spread metal shaping process, it exhibits rapid wear rate of cutting tools due to high cutting temperature generated during the process. Thus effective control of the heat generated during machining is essential to ensure good workpiece quality. Cutting fluids are applied to avoid the problem; however cutting fluids are restricted due to their harmful health and environmental impacts. Newly developed economical and environmental friendly alternative to completely dry or flood lubrication is minimum quantity of lubrication (MQL). Minimum Quantity of Lubrication machining refers to the use of a small amount of cutting fluid, typically in order of 500 ml/hr or less, which are about three to four orders of magnitudes lower than that used in flooded lubricating conditions, MQL technique consists in atomizing a very small quantity of lubricant in an airflow directed towards the cutting zone. This papers deals with the study of minimum quantity of lubrication (MQL) and its advantages over dry or flooded condition.

Keywords-- Minimum quantity of lubrication (MQL), tool wear and surface roughness.

Modeling and Simulation of Fixed and Variable Speed of DFIG Wind System

Authors: Rakesh Sharma, Kuldeep Sahay, Satyendra Singh

Abstract— The wind power is a pollution free source of energy. In this paper we have focused on analyzing the performance of wind power in conventional system under various scenarios. Here we have introduced a wind power in a power generation and transmission system alongside the conventional 3-phase sources and have simulated its working and performance. The wind power is made to work in tandem with the regular supply. In case of faults occurring in the system wind power is used to act as backup for the original supply. Also in case of extra power demand in peak time periods, it has been used to complement the power sources there by maintaining the power quality and frequency in the system. To analysis the performance of DFIG wind system during three phase fault there is two cases (i) Performance analysis of DFIG during fault at fixed wind speed (ii) Performance analysis of DFIG during fault at variable wind speed. All these scenarios have been simulated with the help of the simulation program using MATLAB and its inbuilt components provided in SIMULINK library.

Detecting Heart Rates of Expectant Mothers in their 3rd Trimester

Authors: Niyan Marchon, Dr Gourish Naik

Abstract— The on-going research work involved in filtering abdominal electrocardiogram (aECG) and detecting maternal QRS complexes to calculate maternal heart rates will give this research a lead to further detect fetal heart rates. The monitoring of maternal and fetal heart rates help detect fetal hypoxia early in the evolution to acidosis. The maternal ECG is strongly distorted by artifacts like baseline wander and power line interference. This paper briefly recaps the implementation of some methods to remove these noise so as to calculate the maternal heart rate (R-R interval). Kaiser FIR High pass filter has been proved to be an efficient method for the removal of baseline wander from the aECG signal [7]. A Notch filter with a bandwidth of 2Hz was designed in Matlab using FDA tool to remove the 50 Hz power line interference[7]. In the proposed algorithm a RR interval is calculated, based on threshold detection of the R peaks which in turns calculates the maternal heart rates. The method is validated using 19 recorded signals taken from the Physionet non-invasive aECG database.

Keywords— asphyxia, Abdominal Electrocardiogram (aECG), baseline wander, power-line interference, Physionet, threshold detection.

Security in Wireless Sensor Network using Stationary Access Nodes

Authors: Sharath N, Laxmi B Rananavare

Abstract - Wireless Sensor networks (WSNs) are easy to deploy and allow flexible installations which have enabled them to be used for numerous applications. Due to these properties, they face distinct information security threats. Security for WSNs is very much needed, because of its sensitive information transmission. Sensor networks are vulnerable to many types of attacks because they are deployed in public environment. So it is necessary to secure sensor networks, this can be achieved by introducing authentication and pairwise key establishment mechanisms to sensor nodes. In the proposed system some nodes in WSN are selected as stationary access nodes (SANs) to provide authentication access point between mobile sinks and static sensor nodes. The key distribution mechanism uses two types of key pools: the mobile key pool and the static key pool, the keys in the mobile key pool are shared between mobile sinks and SANs the keys in the static key pool are shared between SANs and Static sensor nodes.

Keywords - Mobile sinks, Stationary access node, Pairwise key distribution, Pre-distribution, Replication attack.

Implementation of Apriori Algorithm on Traffic Data

Authors: Kavita, Trilok Gabba

Abstract — with the advent of new emerging technologies it has been observed that there is a high increase in attacks .The latest technology which is being widely used is wireless sensor network. WSN is one of the most widely used technologies. WSN is of two types 1) Infrastructure based 2) Infrastructure less network. It offers a great deal of promise by providing features like cost effectiveness, flexibility, scalability etc. As this network is wireless they dynamically change their topology and do not have any central point of contact which allows the nodes to join and leave the network at any given time which leaves the network vulnerable and gives the attacker an opportunity to Spoof the nodes, gain sensitive information and use the same against the network. Through this paper we have tried to target attacks like Wormhole, Spoofing while safeguarding the security. This paper even focuses on traffic related problem and suggests a solution for the same Keywords — Spoofing, WSN, Attacks, Wormhole, VPN, Traffic Analysis, DOS
