Composite materials are ideal for aerospace applications due to their high strength to weight ratio and their excellent fatigue resistance. Fiber reinforced Composite is widely used in light weight structures for different applications. The main properties that describe a composite material are the engineering constants and the strength properties of a single unidirectional lamina that make the laminated structure.

The experimental evaluation of these properties is quite costly and time consuming because they are functions of several variables such as the individual constituents of the composite, fiber volume fraction, packing geometry and fabrication processes. Hence, analytical models to predict these properties were developed by researchers to aid the design of composites.

In recent years numerous failure theories have been proposed and are available to the composite structural designer. Object of this review is to gather the available guide lines for theoretical models of failure analysis of fiber reinforced Composite.

Tao, Purdue University, D. Fault studies are important power system analysis for stable and economical operations of power systems. Faults are categorised as symmetrical and unsymmetrical. In this paper, three-phase symmetrical fault is simulated using the Nigerian Bus, kV Transmission Grid. Two different MatLab based programmes were developed; one program was for Load Flow Studies which determines prefault conditions for the power system based on Newton-Raphson method.

The other program determines fault current magnitudes for threephase short-circuit on the power system. The information gained from the fault studies can be used for proper relay select Key words: Reference [1] Muhammad, Aree A. Chand and Company Ltd. Investment in inventory absorbs a large portion of the working capital of a company and often it represents a large portion of the total assets of a business. By improving return on investment by increasing the rate of inventory turnover, management often wants to ensure economic efficiency.

Effective inventory management enables a firm to provide lower costs, rapid response and flexibility for its customers. Just-in-time JIT philosophy is most widely adopted and practices in the recent years worldwide. It aims at reducing total production costs by producing only what is immediately needed and eliminates wastes.

It is based on a radically different concept, deviating substantially from the existing manufacturing practices in many respects. It is a very effective tool to reduce the wastage of inventory and manage it effectively. It has the potential to bring substantial changes in the existing setup of a company; can give it a new face, broaden its acceptability and ensure a longer life.

It can strategically change the atmosphere needed for longer survival. The new outlook acquired by the company can meet global expectations of the customers. JIT happens to provide global markets. The present paper examines the strategic role of JIT in inventory management. Information technology helps JIT in managing inventory effectively, as it helps in integrating the components of supply chain network. Quality aspect of inventory management has also been discussed.

Journal of Operations Management, 19 1 , The foremost objective of the proposed research is to synthesize magnetically-active CdTe nanowires that can be manipulated by magnetic fields.

The ability to do so will facilitate fabrication of molecular electronics and a whole host of other potential applications. Doped CdTe particles with suitable magnetic moments will then be converted to CdTe wires using a technique originally developed for undoped CdTe. The changes in morphology, size, composition, and structure will be monitored using the same analytical methods used for characterization of the precursor nanoparticles. Finally, nanowires that possess a sufficient magnetic moment will be aligned using a magnetic field to prove the viability of this approach for manufacturing nanoscale devices and electronics.

In this paper, it is aimed to deal with the interactions of harmonic currents produced by different single phase loads. For this purpose, compact fluorescent lamps, incandescent lamps, and electric heaters were chosen as single phase loads. The study was performed by adopting a full range of response surface methodology using Box—Behnken experimental design to express the net harmonic current 3rd and 5th as an empirical model.

The model provided an excellent explanation of the relationship among the number of loads and the net harmonic currents. Contour graphs of some of the harmonic currents was plotted to show the interactions clearly and to discuss the results of model in the graphic detail.

The results of experiments showed that the harmonic interaction between the loads can be defined as a regression model which is statistically significant.

D Thesis in Minning and Mineral Engineering, "Fracture toughness based models for the prediction of power consumption,product size, and capacity of jaw crushers" July This paper focuses on the study of magnetohydrodynamic mixed convection flow of a micropolar fluid near a stagnation point on a vertical stretching sheet in the presence of radiation and mass transfer.

Using the similarity transformations, the governing equations have been transformed into a system of ordinary differential equations. The resultant dimensionless governing equations are solved employing fourth order Runge-Kutta method along with shooting technique. The effects of various governing parameters, namely, material parameter, radiation parameter, magnetic parameter and velocity ratio parameter on the velocity, microrotation, temperature and concentration, as well as the skin friction, the rate of heat transfer and the rate of mass transfer have been computed and shown graphically.

It is observed that the micropolar fluid helps in the reduction of drag forces and also act as a cooling agent. Reference [1] Eringen, A. Alouini, Digital Communications over Fading Channels. Comparison of Interestingness Measures: Data Mining is considered to be a step of paramount importance in the process of Knowledge Discovery in Databases.

The term "Interestingness Measure" unequivocally forms a very essential aspect of extraction of "interesting" rules from databases. As there are a huge number of association rules or patterns that are generated by most Association Rule Mining Algorithms, there arises a need to prune away the unnecessary and unwanted rules. The rules that are crucial and indispensable can therefore be presented to the end user based on the application of these "Interestingness Measures".

The reason this is done is so that the user gets a narrow focus on only those rules that will provide better business understanding and intelligence. However, there are a plethora of measures available today, and selecting the best amongst them requires a thorough research on each of them. This paper therefore provides a comparative study of certain important measures, thereby highlighting which measure is apt for application in which situation. International Journal of Computer Applications 62 15 , , International Journal of Computer Applications 54 11 , , User oriented description and multiple criteria decision aid, European Journal of Operational Research, Volume , issue 2 January 16, , The papers aim to make a comparative study of binary phase codes in Radar pulse compression.

Pulse compression allows radar to use long waveforms in order to obtain high energy and simultaneously achieve the resolution of a short pulse by internal modulation of the longpulse. This technique increases signal bandwidth through frequency or phase coding. This paper does a comparative analysis of binary codes based on the simulation results of their autocorrelation function and identifies 13 bit Barker code as the most optimal binary code for surveillance radar.

Reed—Solomon RS codes are widely used to identify and correct errors in storage systems and transmission and. When RS codes are used for so many memory system and reduces error in data. Reed-Solomon codes are the most used in digital data storage systems, but powerful for tool burst errors. To correct multiple random errors and burst errors in order, The composing of product code in to column-wise RS codes and row-wise RS codes may allow to decode multiple errors beyond their error correction capability.

The consists of proposed code is two shortened RS codes and a conventional Reed-Solomon code. Reed-Solomon codes are the most Powerful used in data storage systems. The proposed code can correct 16 symbol errors. Whitaker, "An ultra-low power, radiation-tolerant reed Solomon encoder for space applications," in. Tungsten inert gas welding is one of the widely used techniques for joining ferrous and non ferrous metals. TIG welding offers several advantages like joining of dissimilar metals, low heat affected zone, absence of slag etc.

The aim of this paper is to investigate the effect of TIG welding process parameters on welding of Aluminium Response Surface Methodology was used to conduct the experiments. The parameters selected for controlling the process are welding speed, current and gas flow rate.

Strength of welded joints were tested by a UTM. Percent elongation was also calculated to evaluate the ductility of the welded joint. From the results of the experiments, mathematical models have been developed to study the effect of process parameters on tensile strength and percent elongation. Optimization was done to find optimum welding conditions to maximize tensile strength and percent elongation of welded specimen. Confirmation tests were also conducted to validate the optimum parameter settings.

With increase in image depth , roughness increases in case of man-made structures whereas natural scene images become smooth, thus reducing the local roughness of the picture.

Such kind of specific arrangement produces a particular spatial pattern of dominant orientations and scales that can be described using Gabor filter as it gives the local estimate of frequency content in an image.

Here various techniques are used i. Here the real scene images are classified in four classes such as near natural, near manmade, far natural and far manmade. Gabor filter only classify into low energy and high energy scenes. In the proposed method i. Its properties like low cost, high bandwidth and significant progress has been made in understandingthe behavior of TCP and congestion-controlled traffic over CSMA based multihop wireless networks.

Despite these advances, however, no prior work identified severe throughput imbalances in the basic scenario of mesh networks, in which a one-hop flow contends with a two-hop flow for gateway access.

In this paper, we demonstrate via real network measurements, testbed experiments, and an analytical model that starvation exists in such a scenario; i. Our analytical model yields a solution consisting of a simple contention window policy that can be implemented via standard mechanisms defined in IEEE Despite its simplicity, we demonstrate through analysis, experiments, and simulations that the policy has a powerful effect on network-wide behavior, shifting the network's queuing points, mitigating problematic MAC and transport behavior, and ensuring that TCP flows obtain a fair share of the gateway bandwidth, irrespective of their spatial location.

Higher-Speed Physical Layer Extension in the 2. The electrocardiogram ECG is widely used for diagnosis of heart diseases.

Good quality of ECG is utilized by physicians for interpretation and identification of physiological and pathological phenomena. However, in real situations, ECG recordings are often corrupted by artifacts. Noise severely limits the utility of the recorded ECG and thus need to be removed, for better clinical evaluation.

Donoho and Johnstone [4, 5, 10] proposed wavelet thresholding denoising method based on discrete wavelet transform DWT with universal threshold is suitable for non-stationary signals such as ECG signal.

In the present paper a new thresholding technique is proposed for de-noising of ECG signal. This new de-noising method is called as improved thresholding de-noising method could be regarded as a compromising between hardand soft-thresholding de-noising methods. The advantage of the improved thresholding de-noising method is that it retains both the geometrical characteristics of the original ECG signal and variations in the amplitudes of various ECG waveforms effectively.

The experimental results indicate that the proposed method is better than traditional wavelet thresholding de-noising methods in the aspects of remaining geometrical characteristics of ECG signal and in improvement of signal-tonoise ratio SNR.

Power Quality is one of the primary concerns of the utilities, since lack of quality in power may cause malfunctions, instability, short lifetime and so on. The efficiency and sustainability of a power system is highly dependent on the maintenance of good quality of power supply.

Conventional Methods have been used to analyze the transient effects but found to be high resource consuming under remote applications. In this aspect the Discrete Wavelet Transformation DWT analysis has gained reputation of being a very effective and efficient analysis tool. VHDL is used to implement DWT architecture for improving the efficiency of estimation and response in the power systems. The evaluations are compared with theoretical results from MATLAB and were observed to be meeting the accuracy of estimation.

Rounding is not implemented to give more precision when using the multiplier in a Multiply and Accumulate MAC unit. The construction industry in recent years has incorporated information technology which serves to facilitate the conceptualization and realization of construction projects.

BIM has attracted widespread popularity recently; however, there is several challenges concerning its definitions and expectations in early phases of construction projects. Evidently different organizations and people create their own definitions of BIM, based on the specific way they work with BIM. Thus, it is evident that there are differences in the way BIM is perceived by both different individuals and organizations within the construction industry.

As a result, it might be difficult to come up with a common definition of BIM for the entire construction industry. This can lead to misunderstandings concerning expectations from different stakeholders involved in construction projects where BIM is utilized. It is suggested that the definition of BIM should not be unilateral but rather encompass several key characteristics which have been attributed to it. Joo, Building information modelling BIM framework for practical implementation, Automation in Construction 20 2 , , To design a high speed multiplier with reduced error compensation technique.

The fixed-width multiplier is attractive to many multimedia and digital signal processing systems which are desirable to maintain a fixed format and allow a little accuracy loss to output data.

This paper presents the Design of error compensated truncation circuit and its implementation in fixed width multiplier. To reduce the truncation error, we first slightly modify the partial product matrix of Booth multiplication and then derive an effective error compensation function that makes the error distribution be more symmetric to and centralized in the error equal to zero, leading the fixed-width modified Booth multiplier to very small mean and mean-square errors.

However, a huge truncation error will be introduced to this kind of fixed-width modified Booth multipliers. To overcome this problem, several error compensated truncation circuit approaches have been proposed to effectively reduce the truncation error of fixed-width modified Booth multipliers. Very Large Scale Integr. The operation of VSI is supported by a dc storage capacitor with proper dc voltage across it. Any change in the load affects the dc-link voltage directly. The sudden removal of load would result in an increase in the dc-link voltage above the reference value, where as sudden increase in load would reduce the dc-link voltage below its reference value.

Conventionally, a Proportional-Integral PI controller is used to maintain the dc-link voltage to the reference value. It uses deviation of the capacitor voltage from its reference value as its input. However the transient response of the conventional PI dc-link controller is slow. To maintain the dc-link voltage at the reference value, the dc-link capacitor needs a certain amount of real power, which is proportional to the difference between the actual and reference voltages.

To overcome the disadvantage of the conventional PI dc-link voltage controller, a fast-acting dc-link voltage controller is proposed. To maintain the dc-link voltage of fast acting controller reference value is proportional to the difference between the squares of the actual and reference voltages.

Mathematical equations are given to compute the gains of the conventional controller based on fast-acting dc-link voltage controllers to achieve similar fast transient response. The value of the dc-link capacitor can be selected based on its ability to regulate the voltage under transient conditions..

The efficiency of the proposed controller over the conventional dc-link voltage controller has been developed in MATLAB environment, simulated and obtained related waveforms. This methodology provides a numerical approach to observability analysis. The approach enables observability analysis and restoration pseudo-measurement selection in a simple way with iteration, via triangular factorization of the jacobian matrix of the weight least square state estimator. An algorithm for precious measurement of topological observability in large bus — system state estimation has been proposed.

The algorithm is based on observation that the search for a spanning tree of full rank. We use observability algorithm and state estimation algorithm. We use the Mat lab to obtain the various graphs of bus systems.

By using simulation method of bus system we analyze the observability. Power system state estimation, Observability analysis, Pseudo — measurement. Reference 1 Fred C.
