Directional Location Finding of Intelligent Tags

Authors: Dr. JKR Sastry, Dr. A. Vinya Babu

Abstract-- Finding the location of a TAG is very important especially when objects to which the tags are attached are to be tracked. Tracking of the objects is a complicated process especially when there is fall down of the objects in the unknown places during airline crashers, atmospheric disasters etc. The objects must be tracked accurately, just finding the distance of an object from a master mobile device is not sufficient. It is also necessary to find the location of the object in relation to directions (North, North- East, West, South-West etc.,) in addition to the distance of the object from the master (hand held mobile device) accurately. In this paper a novel method has been presented using which the location of an object can be accurately determined

Multi output Fly back Converter with Switching/Linear Post Regulators

Authors: Naresh K M, Umavathi M, Mohan H R

Abstract— In high power pulsed radar transmitter the gridded TWT is used as main power amplifier, the grid control includes the grid positive and grid negative power supplies, which control the beam ON and OFF of TWT. The negative voltage is used to maintain the TWT in an off state (bias), while positive voltage is used to turn on the TWT (drive). The grid supplies are referenced to cathode and thus float at high potentials making the design of these converters challenging, thermally as well as electrically. In this paper, an approach is presented that is easy to use, low cost & efficient. Preliminary work done to realize the prototype hardware & its results are also presented. The input of the converter is a regulated 28V DC. The prototype is realized using a free running multi output fly back converter operating at 100 KHz in CCM mode. The isolation requirement between the primary & secondary is achieved using a transformer realized with ETD core & moulding it using solid encapsulate. Multiple secondary outputs provide for grid supplies as well as low voltage supplies for drive & protection requirements. The switching/linear post regulators are proposed for maintaining necessary load regulation on all the outputs. The converter is over current protected, using pulse by pulse current limiting at the primary. The PWM technique based on the IC UC28025 is used for the fly back converter.

Education Management Impact on Learner & Society

Authors: Monika Malik, Anil Kharb

Abstract--The process of reviewing the functioning of school governing bodies is a necessary and crucial one. It is believed that this review will contribute towards strengthening our democracy as well as towards transformation in the education system as a whole. This paper appraises Educational management functioning by looking at three areas: development of School policies, raising funds and managing school finances, and appointment of Educators. The paper argues that school governance functions should be followed by proper management. Management is the Art/Science of: - Getting work done, with the help of other people, within the given budget, within the given deadlines. Management as an academic discipline refers to, substantive body of knowledge of concepts, theories, laws and applications in practice. Educational management should assure that sound policies, goals and objectives are formulated in a given school and those methods are determined for the achievement of these objectives. The paper recommends that management in educational institutes should procure the resources necessary for the achievement of the objectives, organize and coordinate the activities of the school with the prime function of achieving the objectives of the school with maximum efficiency and effectiveness, influence and stimulate the human resources available, must integrate the school and its activities into the set-up of society and last but not least evaluate the schools activities in accordance with the plans made. In a democratic country like ours, educational management is a necessity. The purpose of educational management is to bring pupils and teachers under such conditions as will more successfully promote the end of education. Superior educational management, in fact, is basic to the satisfactory functioning of democracy. Sir Graham Balfour writes very aptly, "the purpose of educational management is to enable the right pupils to receive the right education from the right teachers, at a cost within the means of the state, which will enable pupils to profit by their learning." Underlying all the efforts of the Educational Management function is a vision of quality education. Our attempts in the Foundation are to enhance the quality of education through various interventions that are not programmatic but operational-strengthening in nature. Our focus is on people development; our attempt is to change their perspectives, attitudes and values which help them set their own goals for improving the system. Developments in education have brought forth focus on new concerns, emergence of comprehensive infrastructure, up gradation in the quality of instructional programs, etc. Right from policies to the evaluation everything started changing with many flaws, challenges and gifts. We will study in this paper many defects creeping into educational management we should be aware of, recommendations, need, strategies and challenges in front of educational management.

A New Era in Wireless Technology using Light-Fidelity

Authors: Jitender Singh, Vikash

Abstract – Li-Fi is using visible light instead of radio waves for communication. This new wireless technology can save a large amount of electricity by transmitting data through the light bulbs. In an age where we face a challenge of data congestion in the free air medium, where we strive hard to squeeze in all the data in the allocated spectrum. Something we generally use every day, there is not any area where we do not use light. With this emerging technology we can use all the light around us that we produce to transmit data. .Let us consider the amount of dependency that we have in the present world on the use of cell phones or laptops or the internet it is a need of the present world that we check alternate ways to transmit all this huge amount of data we generally use. By flickering the light from a single LED, any change a human eye can detect, they can transmit far more data than a cellular tower using SIM OFDM technique-- and do it in a way that's more efficient, secure and widespread. In this paper we are going to compare the existing Wi-Fi technology and newly adopted Li-fi wireless technology.

Effect of Nozzle Holes and Turbulent Injection on Diesel Engine Performance

Authors: Dr. Hiregoudar Yerrennagoudaru, Kullaya Swamy K B

Abstract —In diesel engines the Analysis of fuel spray with various injection orientations has high influence on engine performance as well as exhaust gas emissions. The fuel injector orientation plays very important role in fuel air mixing. A single cylinder four stroke DI diesel engine with fuel injector having multi-hole nozzle injector is considered for the analysis. The geometry of the diesel fuel injection nozzle and fuel flow characteristics in the nozzle significantly affects the processes of fuel atomization, combustion and formation of pollutant emissions in a diesel engine. The objective of the research was to find the proper model to be used for fast analysis of existing nozzle geometry. Several models of the nozzle were made to increase further atomization and break down of fuel droplets into fine small molecules. The results were compared with the results of measurements at steady state conditions and fuel injection characteristics are required to deal effectively with major diesel engine design problem achieving sufficiently rapid fuel-air mixing rates to complete the fuel burning Process in the time available. In this experiment it has been investigated the effect of injector nozzle holes and models created such as fins for fuel spray on the performance of diesel engine such as fuel consumption and fuel inengine cylinder the analysis of a swirl diesel engine research also reveals the effects of swirl in combustion chamber of a diesel engine depending on the shape, angle, and area of the jet passage, effects of the pressure, heat release HC, and CO concentrations.

Numerical Investigation and Fatigue Life Estimation of Modified Diesel Engine Piston

Authors: Dr. Hiregoudar Yerrennagoudaru, Manjunatha K, Devaraja Naik N, Chandragowda M

Abstract —Nowadays engine components are subjected to higher load at elevated temperature than before, due to the increase requirement regarding weight, performance and exhaust gas emission. Thus, Fatigue due to simultaneous thermal and cyclic loading become determinant among the damage forms. At the same time, there is the need to reduce development time and cost to handle the growing number of model variant. Therefore, the development of suitable simulation tools, which reduces the number of necessary component tests, seems to be very rewarding. By using special material (aluminum alloy) we can reduce the fatigue load (Thermal and cyclic) on the piston by using finite element analysis, ANSYS work bench 14.5 version.

Efficient Analysis of Big Data Using Map Reduce Framework

Authors: Dr. Siddaraju, Sowmya C L, Rashmi K, Rahul M

Abstract-- Data now stream from daily life from phones and credit cards and televisions and computers; from the infrastructure of cities from sensor-equipped buildings, trains, buses, planes, bridges, and factories. The data flow so fast that the total accumulation of the past two years is now a zettabyte. This huge volume of data is known as big data. Big Data refers to technologies and initiatives that involve data that is too diverse, fast-changing or massive for conventional technologies, skills and infrastructure to address efficiently. Said differently, the volume, velocity or variety of data is too great. The volume of data with the speed it is generated makes it difficult for the current computing infrastructure to handle big data. To overcome this drawback, big data processing can be performed through a programming paradigm known as MapReduce. Typical, implementation of the mapReduce paradigm requires networked attached storage and parallel processing. Hadoop and HDFS by apache is widely used for storing and managing big data. In this research paper the authors suggest various methods for catering to the problems in hand through MapReduce framework over HDFS. MapReduce technique has been studied at in this paper which is needed for implementing Big Data analysis using HDFS.

Review for Leach Protocol in WSN

Authors: Shakuntala Yadav, Shyam Singh Yadav

Abstract - we study leach protocol of wireless sensor network in this paper. WSN is very vast and interesting field for researcher. Transmission of each packet exists between one sensor nodes to another node by using some routing protocol. One of these routing protocols is LEACH Protocol. This protocol is known as cluster – based protocol. All nodes are separated by clusters. A cluster can have at least two or more than two node. From these nodes one node work as a cluster head (CH) node. All remaining nodes in the cluster send and receive packets through cluster head (CH). These nodes cannot directly communicate with the nodes of other cluster. In this paper we are going to discuss some techniques that are used on leach protocol. Each technique has some results on different parameters. Our main objective is to compare results of techniques that exist. Finally after comparison we find conclusion on the comparative results.

Keyword - Wireless sensor network, Leach Protocol, Cluster Head, optimization, GA

Modelling Spatial Variability of Load Carrying Capacity of Soil Using GIS

Authors: Karthika Mohan, Radhakrishnan T, Manojkumar T. K, Girish M.S

Abstract— Maximum load per unit area that can be imposed on a footing without causing soil rupture is known as its bearing capacity. This load may be obtained by carrying out a load test which will give a curve between average load per unit area and the settlement of the footing. Most of the bearing capacity theories are emerged from Prandtl’s theory of plastic equilibrium. The most widely used method for the determination of ultimate bearing capacity is proposed by Terzaghi and Meyerhof. Terzaghi’s theory is applicable only for shallow foundation whereas Meyerhof’s theory can be extended for deep foundation as well. Moreover, these methods produce results for point locations only. This study aims to model and analyse the bearing capacity of soil in a spatial framework using Geographical Information Systems (GIS). The final results show the degree of load carrying capacity possible for the entire site.

Keywords— Factor of Safety, Kriging, Load Bearing Capacity.

Abstract — In view of increasing pressure on crude oil reserves and environmental degradation as an outcome, fuels like Biofuel may present a sustainable solution as it can be produced from a wide range of carbon based feedstock. The present investigation evaluates Biofuel (90%jatropa oil+10%ethanol) as a C I engine fuel. The objectives of this report is to analyze the fuel consumption and the emission characteristic of a twin cylinder diesel engine that are using Biofuel & compared to usage of ordinary diesel that are available in the market. This report describes the setups and the procedures for the experiment which is to analyze the emission characteristics and fuel consumption of diesel engine due to usage of the both fuels. Detail studies about the experimental setup and components have been done before the experiment started. Data that are required for the analysis is observed from the experiments. Calculations and analysis have been done after all the required data needed for the thesis is obtained. The experiment used C I engine with no load which means no load exerted on it. A four stroke Twin cylinder C I engine was adopted to study the brake thermal efficiency, brake specific energy consumption, and emissions at zero load & full load with the fuel of Biofuel. In this study, the diesel engine was tested using Biofuel (90%jatropa oil+10%ethanol) . By the end of the report, the successful of the project have been started which is Twin cylinder C I engine is able to run with Bio fuel but the engine needs to run by using diesel fuel first, then followed by Bio fuel and finished with diesel fuel as the last fuel usage before the engine turned off.

Survey of Wireless Sensor Network Vulnerabilities and its Solution

Authors: Poonam Khare, Sara Ali

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

Authors: D M Kulla, I M EBEKPA, M Sumaila

Abstract- The need for baked food has become a necessity in disgust. Bread and cakes has become part of our lives, as such an oven for baking of bread/cake become important. The production of different types of oven has grown rapidly over the years particularly baking oven for domestic use. But in our society today these ovens have been crippled by electricity power instability in the urban settlement and lack of electricity in the rural settlement because they largely depend on electricity. Therefore the need for baking oven not depending on electricity arises. Charcoal oven which is one of such oven, is cheap and efficient and can be used both in the rural and urban settlement for domestic consumption and small-scale business this oven uses little quantity of charcoal to bake at a short time.

Authors: Kotresh Sardar, Dr. K. Veeresh, Manjunatha Gowda

Abstract— This paper constitutes the study of Mechanical Properties like Tensile Strength of 10%, 20%, 30% and 40% KFRPC material used as Bio-material. An attempt is made to develop the 10%, 20% 30% and 40% KFRPC material with low density, economical for tissue implant with respect to biocompatibility and the mechanical behavior of human tissues, such as Tendon, according to the ASTM D-3039 for Tensile test using the polyester resin as the matrix material with the 10%, 20% 30% and 40% of the KFRPC material with fiber weight fraction, random continuous long fiber orientation, by using the Hand Layup fabrication technique the specimens are prepared. The tensile tests are conducted by preparing varying percentage of standard. It is found that there is appreciable improvement in Tensile Properties of 10%, 20%, 30% and 40% KFRPC material. This Study suggests 40% of KFRPC material may be suitable for the different application in the replacement of human tissues. From the Experimental results it is found that by increasing the weight fraction of the fiber or percentage of fiber which will increase the Tensile strength and also increases the density and mass of composite of the specimen. This paper is concentrated on study of tensile strength of tendon and compared the experimental results of the 10%, 20% 30% and 40% KFRPC material with the Tendon. This study suggests that the KFRPC material is less cost, low density and high strength biocompatible material and may be suggested for implant, especially for Tendon. From the Experimental results the strengths of 10%, 20%, 30% and 40% KFRPC materials will match the Tendon Strength. Finally 40% KFRPC material can be suggested for Tendon. Further it can be tested for remaining mechanical tendon properties.

Keywords— Kenaf Fibre Reinforced Polyester Composite Materials (KFRPC), Tendon, Tensile test and Hand layup Technique.

Authors: Pradeep Khanna, Isha Jain, Nidhi Gahlot, Harshit Bansal, Mukul Chaturvedi

Abstract— The project aimed in design, fabrication and graphical analysis of a Pneumatic Reciprocating Block Feeder. The project starts with an extensive study on feeders, their different types, designs, characteristics, performance and applications. It progresses with designing of a Pneumatic Reciprocating Block Feeder. Its individual components were developed and assembled and dimensional accuracy was ensured to maintain a feeding mechanism. The preliminary knowledge and constraints on design of feeder hence developed led to selection of three parameters of interest which are stroke rate (number of strokes per minute) of reciprocating part-lifter, part population and part size (diameter). Some experiments and observations made possible the selection of range of each parameter. A series of experimentation was carried out on feeder wherein each parameter of interest is changed while others are kept constant and corresponding feed rate is recorded. Extensive graphical analysis is done on data so collected. The results and discussions made hence forth, draws a conclusion on conditions of operation for best performance of feeder.
