Paper Title:

Design and Analysis of Two Wheelers Wheel with the Replacement of Alluminium Alloy

Abstract:   PEEK is an established material that is used in a variety of applications. PEEK has replaced metals like Aluminum and brass for cost and weight saving reasons as well as “metallic reactions”. It is also the one polymer that can meet the needs of more demanding applications where very high or low temperatures or chemical resistance are key operational parameters PEEK is an ideal replacement for Aluminum alloy as well as other types of metal tubing, and even glass for weight reduction, comparable strength/mass, chemical resistance, hardness, and low extractable. PEEK is particularly useful in the automobile industry for its weight. In an application where 2 grams can make a difference and weight is directly correlated to fuel cost, light weight PEEK is superior material matches aluminum in mechanical properties, and is more resistant to fluids. In this project work the entire wheel design of two wheeler was chosen and analyzed by applying different load and redesign the wheel again to minimize the deformation and material will be changed from aluminum to PEEK(polyether ether ketone )The following materials were chosen:-
Aluminum Alloy

PEEK(Polyether etherketone)

PEEK with 30% Glass fiber

PEEK-90 HMF 20

PEEK-90 HMF 40

Wheel design of two wheeler is made by using NX 7.5, and  Analysis has been done by Ansys 13.0 software to determine the various stresses, strain and fatigue life of the wheel. The software has helped us really to achieve our goal.As the whole analysis is done by the means of software therefore result and observation are trustworthy and meet with our expectation.

Paper Title:

Experimental and Comparison Studies on Drying Characteristics of Sliced Cut Tomatoes and Cube Cut Tomatoes

Abstract:  A natural convection solar greenhouse tunnel dryer was designed and developed for studying and comparing the drying characteristics of sliced cut tomatoes and cube cut tomatoes. Three experimental runs with 30 kgs of tomatoes were carried out in the dryer during the month of June 2014. The performance of the dryer was studied (drying time and product quality) in comparison with open sun drying method. The absolute geometry of cut for the products to be dried was also revealed. It was found that the solar tunnel greenhouse dryer took only 29 hours for reducing the moisture content of sliced cut tomatoes from 90% (w.b.) to 9% (w.b.) and 56 hours for reducing the moisture content of cube cut tomatoes from 90% (w.b.) to 9% (w.b.) whereas the open sun drying took 74 hours and 123 hours for the same. The sliced cut tomatoes were dried at an earlier time than the cube cut tomatoes in both solar tunnel dryer and open sun drying due to the larger area of exposure to surrounding hot air which allowed higher rate of moisture removal from the tomatoes. Thus, the optimum geometry of cut for ensuring quicker drying of tomatoes is the sliced cut of the tomatoes.  Also, the quality of dried tomatoes produced from solar tunnel dryer is much superior compared to that of open sun drying.

An Efficient Key Exchange Authentication Using Browser Based Security

Abstract:  Password-authenticated key exchange (PAKE) is where a client and a server, who share a password, authenticate each other and meanwhile establish a cryptographic key by exchange of messages. In this setting, all the passwords necessary to authenticate clients are stored in a single server. If the server is compromised, due to, for example, hacking or even insider attacks, passwords stored in the server are all disclosed. In this paper, we propose a browser based security and usage of two servers which cooperate to authenticate a client. Even if one server is compromised, the attacker still cannot pretend to be the client with the information from the compromised server.

Speed Control of Three Phase Induction Motor by VVVF method using G7/A-1000 Drive

Abstract:    One of the driving forces behind the industrial revolution was the invention—more than a century ago—of the electric motor. Its widespread use for all kinds of mechanical motion has made life simpler and has ultimately aided the advancement of humankind. And the advent of the inverter that facilitated speed and torque control of AC motors has propelled the use of electric motors to new realms that were inconceivable just a mere 30 years ago. Advances in power semiconductors—along with digital controls—have enabled realization of motor drives that are robust and can control position and speed to a high degree of precision. he use of AC motor drives has also resulted in energy savings and improved system efficiency. This paper reviews the development and application of inverter technology to AC motor drives and presents a vision for motor drive technology. The development of more efficient, more powerful electric motor drives to power the demands of the future is important for achieving energy savings, environmentally harmonious drives that do not pollute the electrical power system, and improving productivity. Yukawa wants to be an integral part of this future and hopes to contribute significantly to achieve this..

Review on KVM Hypervisor

Abstract:   In today’s world the boom of cloud computing is made possible due to the virtualization technology. This technology was invented before couple of decades but cloud computing leveraged this technology to build scalable reliable platform which can deploy many applications in the cloud. Virtualized resources come under the infrastructure as service. There are many virtualization technologies available right now in the market which includes VMware, Hyper V, LXC, Xen and KVM. KVM is also known as kernel virtualized machine as it is completely integrated into the Linux kernel itself so it is able to use many native functionalities which are available in the Linux kernel itself. KVM provides the full visualization of guests which allows guests to run unmodified. KVM is completely open source and have a strong community behind this which keeps updating the KVM. In this paper we have reviewed the KVM and studied its detailed architecture. We have also done some tests and evaluation which proves the significant upper hand of the KVM over other hypervisors available in the market.

Reliability Analysis of the Unbalanced Distribution Systems considering Distributed Generators

Abstract:     distribution system is prone to failures and disturbances due to weather related issues and human errors. The distributed generation is expected to play a key role in the power system. The reliability of the power supply can be improved in the presence of  distributed generation (DG). In this paper, general assessment of the impact of distributed generation (DG) on the distribution system reliability is presented.  The reliability improvement is measured by reliability indices. A typical case study is presented where distribution system reliability indices are calculated for an existing system without DG and compared with insertion of DG in the system.

Paper Title:

Seismic Analysis of High-Rise Open Ground Storey Framed Building

Abstract:   The concept of open ground building (OGS) has taken its place in the Indian urban environment due to the fact that it provides the parking facility in the ground storey of the building. The cost of construction of this type of building is much less than that of a building with basement parking. Surveys of buildings failed in the past earthquakes show that this types of buildings are found to be one of the most vulnerable. The majority of buildings that failed during the Bhuj earthquake (2001) and Gujraat earthquake were of the open ground storey type. The collapse mechanism of such type of building is predominantly due to the formation of soft-storey behavior in the ground storey of this type of building. The sudden reduction in lateral stiffness and mass in the ground storey results in higher stresses in the columns of ground storey under seismic loading. In conventional design practice, the contribution of stiffness of infill walls present in upper storeys of OGS framed buildings are ignored in the structural modelling (commonly called bare frame analysis). Design based on such analysis, results in under-estimation of the bending moments and shear forces in the columns of ground storey, and hence it may be one of the reasons responsible for the failures observed. After the Bhuj earthquake took place, the IS 1893 code was revised in 2002, incorporating new design recommendations to address OGS framed buildings. According to this clause 7.10.3(a) of the same code states: “The columns and beams of the soft-storey are to be designed for the multiplication factor of 2.5 times the storey shears and moments calculated under seismic loads of bare frame”. The prescribed multiplication factor (MF) of 2.5, applicable for all OGS framed buildings, is proved to be fairly higher and suggests that all existing OGS framed buildings (those designed to earlier codes) are highly vulnerable under seismic loading. This MF value however does not account for number of storeys, number of bays, type and number of infill walls present, etc and hence it is independent of all of the above factors. Present study deals with various aspects related to the performance of OGS buildings. The values of magnification factor recommended in literatures vary from 1.0 to 4.8 (Kaushik, 2009).The main objective of present study is the study of comparative performance of OGS buildings designed according to various MFs using nonlinear analysis. As the more realistic performance of the OGS building requires the modelling the stiffness and strength of the infill walls, the stiffness and strength of the infill walls also considered. The variations in the type of the infill walls using in Indian constructions are significant. Depending on the modulus of elasticity and the strength, it can be classified as strong or weak. The two extreme cases of infill walls, strong and weak are considered in the study. The behavior of buildings depends on the type of foundations and soils also. Depending on the foundations resting on soft or hard soils, the displacement boundary conditions at the bottom of foundations can be considered as hinged or fixed. As the modeling of soils is not in the scope of the study, two boundary conditions, fixed and hinged, that represent two extreme conditions are considered.
