Paper Title:

Performance Evaluation of MS Tube Coupler on Axial Load Capacity of Column

Abstract: This paper presents the results of an experimental investigation on the axial load behavior of small scale reinforced concrete square columns with tube coupler, where this material represents a relatively new technology, as a solution to overcome the lapping problems. Therefore, a total of 18 columns (550 mm ×150 mm×150 mm size) were tested under compressive axial static loading. All columns had 4-Φ10 mm rebar as main reinforcement and Φ8 mm as transverse reinforcement at 100 mm center to center spacing along the column. The major parameters included in this research were the joining types of main reinforcement, such as solid rebar, lapping of rebar and coupling of rebar. Test results exhibited that the cracking loads and failure loads of column were higher in the column made with coupling of rebar compared to lapping but slightly lower than the solid rebar. In addition, axial deformations and rate of deformation were almost similar in both types of columns using solid rebar and coupler in rebar. So, it can be stated, on the basis of the test results, that uses of tube coupler in rebar rather than lap splice is more expedient to increase the capacity of column.

Paper Title:

Fruit Sorting Robotic Arm Based on Image Processing

Abstract:  This paper present the smart approach of sorting the fruit. This food sorting system is based on image processing and it gives us various information like color, shape, size, defect, etc of fruit. In today’s world image processing grabs exceptionally large attention it possibilities of widen application in many field of higher technology. The system consist of one digital USB camera, personal computer, PIC micro-controller, DC motor. The samples of different fruits are situated in front of camera and are calibrated off line and stored in different storage. A regular USB digital camera was used to acquire the images and all process were in matlab environment. The performance of system strongly depends on the thresholds used, although optimal thresholds tend to vary with images but developed method did not require an adjustment of threshold values for fruit detection from each image because image segmentation was conducted based on classification models generated in accordance with the color, shape, texture and size of the images. The DC motor is used for the movement of the robotic arm. Manual method is slow, costly and also lacks reliability and objectivity required in competitive food industries. In this project embedded system is designed for multi sorting and it is implemented through Matlab. External inspection is done through image processing. The system utilizes image-processing techniques to classify and grade fruits.

Friction Stir Processing of Aluminum Alloys (6063): A Review

Abstract:  As we know aluminum and its different kinds of alloys are suffering from different kind of confines like high strength, cost, time used in production and also reduction in ductility.Material having fine and homogenous grain structure accompanied high ductility and high strength. That is why there is requirement arises from the development of a new and different technique which is useful to produce a material with a fine grain structure, high wear strength, ductility and fine grain structure. FSP (Friction Stir Processing) is a fresh and new method, but still in the research phase.

An Energy Efficient Scheme for Secure Data Aggregation in Cluster Based Wireless Sensor Network

Abstract: Wireless sensing networks have obtained responsiveness throughout the world from last many years because of the progress that had been made in wireless communication. WSN devices are laptops, PDAs, mobile phone and simple sensing devices. But now the devices are in constrictions with relations like power, memory, efficiency and communication abilities because of various causes. WSN are used in saleable and manufacturing area like environment checking, habitat nursing, hospital, bank, police department as there is increase use in wireless sensing network in day to day life. In contract to this it face a lot of issues in terms of battery life time. In the proposed system we are using RSA technique for key generation and PAM for the energy Consumption. Using RSA we can authenticate it successfully and using PAM algorithm form the clusters effectively for minimizing energy consumption. In this way proposed system provides the improved performance in terms of Network throughput, energy consumption and delay.

Power Generation Investment and Electricity Pricing in Deregulated Energy Markets

Abstract: This paper discusses deregulated electricity markets with a focus on highlighting the factors that have constrained generation investments, kept prices up and possible ways of mitigating them. The pricing structures adopted in electricity markets were ex-rayed and comparisons of generation investment mix were made between case nations to ascertain effectiveness. This study concludes that a wholesale competitive market, cost reflective pricing and right generation mix are essential for improved electricity availability, reliability and sustainability.
