Paper Title:

Investigation for Finding out Difficulties in Construction of High Rise Building & Suggest Remedial Measures to Expedite the Execution Process of Activities

Abstract:  High-rise buildings are designed with all modern & luxuries amenities for giving comfort & happy life style to buyers. The service lines & setup of infrastructure required for providing amenities are normally provided in basements. Such like, parking, CCTV Control room, Drivers room, Society office, Rooms for servants, Toilets for Drivers, Servants & maintenance staffs. Electrical Transformers, UG Tank, Fire fighting tanks, STP etc. Therefore basement of high rise building is very important part of building. Developer, Architects & Engineers are very much conscious about construction activity involved in basement as it is underground structure. In basements activities especial care to be taken because activities involved such like waterproofing, raft, footings & retaining wall includes. Membrane coatings for waterproofing of RCC elements are presently getting used in most of high-rise buildings. To stop entry of water in basements, waterproofing is needed to get done to horizontal & vertical plane that is, to retaining wall in vertical plane & below raft in horizontal plane. Due to rounded section of shore piles in vertical plane level surface to fix waterproofing membrane is not possible to get. So to make level surface plume concrete wall (PCW) is required to construct. It is observed during case study that, construction of plume concrete wall (PCW) required for fixing waterproofing membrane is time consuming activity. The object of this study is to expedite construction activity of plume concrete walls by finding out another option to plume concrete wall. Also to suggest new material of constructing PCW & reduce PCW construction duration & cost. On basses of case study at project site, Second option of “Skin wall” Construction instead of “Plume concrete wall” is suggested.

Paper Title:

Effects of Various Slenderness Ratio and Aspect Ratio on FRP Wrapped Axially Loaded RC Capsule Column

Abstract: This paper presents results of experimental investigation on the behaviour of axially loaded capsule shaped columns that have been strengthened with Glass Fibre Reinforced polymer and Carbon Fibre Reinforced Polymer with different wrapping patterns. Twelve capsule shaped columns were casted and tested under axial compression. One set of columns have been made with aspect ratio 2.53and with two different slenderness ratios. The second set of columns has been made with aspect ratio 2.1and with two different slenderness ratios. Eight out of twelve columns were confined with one layer and two layers of GFRP and CFRP wrap patterns. Based on the axial compression testing the columns it can be concluded that the lower the slenderness ratio and higher the no of layers and aspect ratio obtained the more strength and ductility.

Paper Title:

A Digital Resource System on HDFS

Abstract: The issue of managing digital resources has become a major concern for educational and research institutions expanding with research laboratories, schools and departments. Some of these institutions have a major challenge as to how to manage huge quantities of educational resources required for research, teaching and learning. It is due to this challenge that this paper sought to design and implement a digital resource management system on the Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS). The main model implemented in the development of the system was the incremental and iterative model. The development of the application took into consideration the user requirements and what the system sought to achieve after implementation. The system’s architecture is divided into various levels and these are the user, systems management, data storage and infrastructural levels. The development of this application was focused on the systems management level. The system integration was achieved by connecting MYSQL database server with HDFS through the utilization of sqoop. Security features were implemented on the system to protect the system from attack. The system was tested to ensure that all the modules created were communicating perfectly and the system was producing the expected results.

Paper Title:

The Application of Information Technology Portfolio Management in an Academic Sector 

Abstract:  Portfolio management practices have been integrated into information technology departments as a means to improve project selection and contribute to the achievement of an organization’s strategic mandate. In particular, this discussion focuses on current literature aimed at information technology portfolio management (ITPM) in application to an academic sector. A scholarly perspective provides an overview of ITPM followed by a discussion on issues related to integration. This report recommends the importance of providing additional training on financial management and risk planning to those providing ITPM oversight. In addition is the need to recognize the relationship with change management due to the dynamic environment of technology and the importance of utilizing performance metrics. As ITPM continues to evolve and integrate into the academic sector, educational leaders become more equipped to make sound project decisions that support the organization’s goals and demonstrate fiscal responsibility.

Paper Title:

A Review on Friction Stir Welding of Aluminum Alloy (7075)

Abstract: Friction stir welding is a solid state joining process and is extensively used for aluminium alloys. In a given work it was analyzed that how the tensile strength as well as microstructural behavior of AA7075 varies if the process parameter like axial pressure force, welding traverse speed and rpm of the FSW tool varies to butt weld of two pieces having length 100mm, width 50mm and thickness 6mm have been used. It was preferred friction stir welding process to obtain the particular result over traditional welding process because of no melt of piece, no toxic fumes and harmful radiation which is suitable for environment so FSW is eco-friendly welding process. It can be widely used   in aircraft, marine, automotive as well as railways industry because of eco-friendly in nature.

Friction Stir Welding of Aluminum Alloy (6082): A Review

Abstract: This  paper  focused on  the Mechanical and  Microstructural  changes  of aluminum  alloy 6082-T6  welded  joints  formed by Friction  Stir Welding  Technique  by varying process.  Parameters such as tool rotational speed, welding speed, shoulder geometries, tool tilt angleetc. This paper have not any Experimental procedure and values because it is only a Review to gain knowledge about the Mechanical and Microstructural changes and it’s Analysis. The effect of various process parameters on Micro hardness of the joints is also studied. As FSW joining takes place below the melting temperature of the base material Due   to which all the defects related to melting is automatically removed. The review helps   in   selection of important process parameters as the quality of weld joint depends on these welding input parameters and in optimization of these parameters.

Analyzing usage of Environmental Noise for Electricity Generation by Piezoelectric Systems

Abstract:  In recent years with increased industrialization as well as population growth, the demand of energy is increasing day by day and as a result of which, the conventional resources are declining. Hence, the need of replacing conventional sources by renewable energy has become an issue of great importance. Due to this, now the focus is to generate electrical energy from renewable sources and piezoelectricity is one of them. This paper projects a state of technology for generation of piezoelectricity from sound using piezoelectric materials.
