Automatic water tank cleaner for round overhead tanks employed in houses, industries and municipals

Ajith Kumar.A

3.4 million people die every year around world due to the water related issues some part of this cause is also because of drinking water stored in an uncleaned overhead tanks . Actually the water storing tanks are made of material which normally open to the atmosphere produce bacterial even though it is not harmful it contaminate water stored in overhead tanks it can be cleaned by a human but an effective cleaning can not be achieved and he may also affected by inhaling the gas out from bacteria produced, According to recent statistics from health organisation storing of water in tanks must be periodically monitored and kept cleaned . Majorly the municipal tanks storing water not even monitored and yearly cleaning is also not undertaken .The above points make reasons for this project.

Shanta Kallur, Puneeth Thotad

Investors get opportunity provided by internet to post online opinions. In turn these opinions can be shared with other investors. Posts on Computational linguistics are obtained from online opinions can facilitate in two ways: first for investors’ investment decision making and second is stock companies’ for risk reduction. To conduct this activity of online posts in stock markets a novel sentiment method is developed. In this method analysis of sentiments from online opinions is integrated into machine learning approaches based on techniques like support vector machine and (GARCH).First corpus of opinions will be collected from particular website. Based on the sentiment contained in the opinion data, it will be divided in to three categories like “Positive”, “Negative” and “Neutral”. Analyzing customer review is most important, by doing that we tend to rate the product and provide decisions for it which is been a challenging problem today. Computational results obtained at the end show that the statistical machine learning approach has a higher classification accuracy than that of the semantic approach. It’s decided after analysis that investor sentiment has a particularly strong effect for value stocks relative to growth stocks.

Optimization of Process Parameters of Stir Casting Technique Using Orthogonal Arrays

G.Madhoo, M.Shilpa

Metal Matrix Composites have received substantial attention in the recent years due to their potential advantages over monolithic alloys. These materials are commonly reinforced with high strength, high modulus, and brittle ceramic phases, which may be in the form of fiber, whiskers, or particulates. The addition of ceramic reinforcement to a metal matrix improves strength and stiffness, but at the expense of ductility. Further, heat treatment has an intense influence on tribological properties of heat treated aluminum alloys and its composites. This paper describes the application of Taguchi’s orthogonal array approach for optimization of parameters of stir casting technique used to process Aluminum based hybrid matrix composites. The wear behavior of the composite, which is a very important characteristic, has been selected for the analysis. Taguchi’s orthogonal array has been selected considering the various control factors and levels; experimentation has been accordingly carried out and optimum process parameters have been selected. This study has resulted in improved wear properties of Aluminum based hybrid matrix composites.

Determining the Household Electricity Demand for Energy Conservation in Various Desert Climates

Farajallah Alrashed, Muhammad Asif

The building industry have a strong interaction with the global energy and environmental scenarios. Buildings are responsible for more than 40% of global energy consumption and over a third of the total global greenhouse gases emissions. Hot desert regions, like Saudi Arabia, are very challenging in terms of building energy consumption. The role of the housing sector in the country is critical as it accounts for half of the total national electricity consumption. Therefore, it is vital to apply energy conservation principles in this sector. Nevertheless, a systemic investigation of electricity demand is essential to identify areas which need to be focused on in terms of energy conservation. To determine these areas, a hypothetical house is designed, modelled and compared with measured electricity values. Integrated Environmental Solutions software is employed to simulate the hypothetical house in the five climatic zones of Saudi Arabia that are represented by Dhahran, Guriat, Riyadh, Jeddah and Khamis Mushai. The investigation focuses mainly on the building services systems and envelope systems. The findings reveal that the annual electricity demand for homes in Dhahran, Guriat, Riyadh, Jeddah, and Khamis Mushait is 129 kWh/m², 91 kWh/m², 112 kWh/m², 165 kWh/m², and 60 kWh/m², respectively. It also reveal that the electricity demand mainly comes from heating, ventilation and air-conditioning system, domestic equipment and lights in all models. Domestic hot water observed to be the least demanding parameter in all models. A further investigation reveals that though results may vary from location to location, the important factors in all models are internal gain, solar gain, external conduction gain, and infiltration gain.

Madhumala Y, Vishal Managutti, Pooja B Patil, Soraganvi Veena S

Bioreduction is the increase and decrease in the valence state of a metal by metabolically active bacteria. Hexavalent chromium present in waste water is found to be toxic in nature which causes mutation and cancer. This waste water was reduced by using two organisms, a biofilm forming bacteria and a non biofilm forming bacteria. The process of reduction was studied by using analytical methods and growth of the organism was optimized by using different temperature and pH for increasing the bioreduction. It was found that biofilm forming bacteria could reduce more effectively than the bacteria which do not form biofilm.

The human gait identification has become a important research area in last two decades because of its towering applications. This human movement examination is a computer vision based behavioral biometric feature and belongs to the second generation biometrics. It does not require subject approval and hence can be captured from distance without the subject knowledge. Human movement examination involves methods for acquiring human gait, processing it, analyzing and understanding human motion/ action / emotion / behavior and validating it.The paper highlights numerous methods found in literature for model free and model based human motion analysis. Unlike previous survey papers the articles main emphasize is on the challenges posed by the covariate factors like different cloths, loading effect on subject and other factors like walking speed effects and their effects on the analysis. The article also gives the research background and current progress of gait analysis. In the last section the success rate and failure rate of many novel approaches by many authors are discussed.

De-noising of gray and color images against multiple noises via offline dictionary

Pooja Ratnakar Baadkar, Chythanya Vasudevan

The paper De-Noising of Images corrupted in presence of multiple noises via offline dictionary,
deals with problem of image restoration which is continuously affected by Impulse Noise (IN) or / and Additive White Gaussian Noise (AWGN) which are commonly occurring noises.The paper envisage implementation of the method to remove mixed noise which commonly occurs in signal processing such as AWGN and IN (AWGN+SPIN, AWGN+SPIN+RVIN). The method includes detection based method, which first detects the noise in the pixel of image then removes mixed noise. Hence such method create more artifacts when mixed noise is too strong. Here soft impulse pixel detection is used via weighted encoding which removes IN and AWGN simultaneously. In this paper Adaptive Median Filter is also used to remove IN with less effort.

Experimental study of decay of pressure along the jet axis of the convergent divergent nozzle with secondary injection for various angle and pressure

M.Saji, Suresh Chandra kandai

This experiment deals with the study of mixing characteristic of supersonic flow through a convergent divergent nozzle with secondary injection of different angles and various pressure by measuring the total pressure along the nozzle jet axis until it reaches the atmospheric pressure. The primary jet was supersonic and the secondary jet (co flow) is highly sonic. Now-a-days the effect of mixing of fuel and air mixture in the combustion chamber of the scramjet engine is quite interesting problem in the field of propulsion. This is because of the supersonic flow in the combustion chamber of the scramjet engine. Hence the requirement of immediate mixing of fuel and air mixture in the combustion chamber is important .This problem can be slightly solved by injecting the fuel in various angles with various proportion of pressure with respect to primary supersonic flow through the nozzle. Hence while analyzing the data got from this experiment it is understood that the time and distance taken for the proper mixing or decaying of secondary injected sonic flow and primary supersonic flow with atmospheric pressure along the jet axis is less compared to non secondary injected and secondary injection which is parallel to the flow.

Automated smart toll gates

K.Gopi Shyam, S.Sam Melvin, M.Vishnu Alagu Subramaniam, R.S.Bharani Kumar

“CARDLESS and CASHLESS” tollgates are the major objective of our paper. The major problems which people are facing in toll gates are unnecessary waiting time, it is estimated that almost 15 crore vehicle uses NHAI in India and if average idle time of each vehicle will be 5-10 minutes. The other problems faced are chaos caused due to exact change in money, wastage of man power. Our paper is a simple and innovative idea to overcome all the above mentioned problems .Our concept emphasis on two aspects. First, we have tried in reducing the unnecessary waiting time in tollgates and secondly we have concentrated in moving towards cashless transaction (E-transaction). To achieve the mentioned objective we have used simple digital image processing programming. Followed by a database, GPS. The other component used will be a High resolution cameras and a mobile application software to create a platform to link with all the components and interact with the user. In our concept, every car’s number is linked with corresponding two or three mobile number for e-wallet or for online transaction. These information will be maintained in a database. Before starting the journey the user should set the current location and destination in the mobile application. By using the GPS it shows the number of tolls in between destination and current location and the user should select whether the journey is single or double. Based on the user choice the database gets updated. Each phone number in database will be linked with their respective bank accounts. When a car is nearing to the toll gate at 500 metre before the toll, a camera will be placed. It takes the car number as input and by image processing it is converted into digital data and it checks for the number in database and checks for journey details and bank account. There may be two cases. CASE 1: If any of the above is not specified, like journey detail is not provided or bank balance is less, it gives an alert message in a LED sign board at 500 meter before toll gate showing the car number to take leftmost lane for manual cash transaction. CASE 2: If all the information are specified and when car moves near toll gate the other camera present near toll gate will recognizes the car and corresponding toll gate amount will be taken from the bank account of the particular phone number which is linked with car and the barrier opens automatically. So in case 2 the car driver doesn’t have to stop the car in toll gates. Since there is no need of unnecessary waiting time the travel time will be reduced and above mentioned problems like exact change in money, wastage of human power can be solved. In this paper we have tried to cover all most all possible cases. Each case will have a different solutions.

Internet of Things

Keerthana M, Ashika Parveen S

The Internet of Things (IoT), sometimes referred to as the Internet of Objects, will change everything including ourselves. This may seem like a bold statement, but consider the impact the Internet already has had on education, communication, business, science, government, and humanity. Clearly, the Internet is one of the most important and powerful creations in all of human history.
Now consider that IoT represents the next evolution of the Internet, taking a huge leap in its ability to gather, analyze, and distribute data that we can turn into information, knowledge, and, ultimately, wisdom. In this context, IoT becomes immensely important. Already, IoT projects are under way that promise to close the gap between poor and rich, improve distribution of the world’s resources to those who need them most, and help us understand our planet so we can be more proactive and less reactive. Even so, several barriers exist that threaten to slow IoT development, including the transition to IPv6, having a common set of standards, and developing energy sources for millions even billions of minute sensors. However, as businesses, governments, standards bodies, and academia work together to solve these challenges, IoT will continue to progress. The goal of this paper, therefore, is to educate you in plain and simple terms so you can be well versed in IoT.

Energy management and presence detection smart homes utilizing GSM enabled smart phone

M. Divya, J.Cathrina Mary

Recently, many researches and industries are developing smart home applications. In a smart home , electric devices (e.g., plugs, lights, TV and so on)can have the capability of wireless communications. Users are allowed to control these devices by smart phones through wireless links. However, we observe that the current control schemes are not user friendly. More specifically, users need to switch between APPs to control different kinds of controllable devices or need to transverse a long device list to find the target one. In these paper, we propose schemes to achieve the control fashion that when a user raises her smart phone to point to a devices, the phone’s screen automatically pops out on the control panel of the device, and then the user can enter control commands directly. In this paper, we evaluate the proposed schemes by simulations and real implementation and the results demonstrate the effectiveness of our design.

Design and Implementation of a Controller for a Non Linear Spherical Process

M.Ajay, G.Brindha

Chemical processes present have many challenging control problems due to various significant features like non-linear dynamic behavior, uncertainty and time varying parameters and so on. Our interest is built around the non-linearity of systems. Because of the inherent non-linearity, most of the chemical process industries are in need of traditional/standard control techniques. The fluid level control problem is commonly associated with storage tanks and blending & reaction vessels in the process industries. Control of process parameters is one of the important problems in process industry. The process considered for modelling is spherical tank liquid level system. Control of liquid level in a spherical tank is nonlinear due to the variation in the area of cross section of the level system with change in shape. System identification of this nonlinear process is done using black box model, which is identified to be nonlinear and approximated to be a First Order Plus Dead Time (FOPDT) model. The controller is designed with the PID based level controller to control the fluid level in spherical tank. Few standard tuning methods like Liptak tuning method, Parr tuning method, Borresen and Grindal tuning method, Camacho tuning method and Tan tuning method have been done and the performance are compared based on ISE (Integral Square Error),IAE (Integral Absolute Error), maximum peak overshoot (Mp) and settling time (ts). The best tuning method is determined using simulation and implemented to tune the controller so that the better performance can be obtained in real time process tank. The real time implementation of the process is designed and implemented in MATLAB software tool using V-MAT data acquisition module. All these are carried out for the particular operating region of the process tank.

Procedural working of user revocation based public auditing for shared data in the cloud

P.William, Deepty Dubey

One of the most popular emerging technology is cloud computing which satisfies various technical competencies. Cloud environment is basically used for resource sharing and now – a –day’s security threats and data confidentiality are most targeted issues in the cloud environment. In the cloud environment certain members can able to form a group and access the information by sharing. To ensure shared data, integrity can be verified publicly, users in the group need to compute signatures on all the blocks in shared data. Different blocks in Shared data are generally signed by different users due to data modifications performed by different users. For security reasons, once a user is revoked from the group, the blocks which were previously signed by this revoked user must be re-signed by an existing user. The straight forward method, which allows an existing user to download the corresponding part of shared data and re-sign it during user revocation, is inefficient due to the large size of shared data in the cloud. In this, a novel public auditing mechanism is proposed for the integrity of shared data with efficient user revocation in mind. By utilizing the idea of proxy re-signatures, we allow the cloud tore-sign blocks on behalf of existing users during user revocation, so that existing users do not need to download and re-sign blocks by themselves. In addition, a public verifier is always able to audit the integrity of shared data without retrieving the entire data from the cloud, even if some part of shared data has been re-signed by the cloud. Moreover, our mechanism is able to support batch auditing by verifying multiple auditing tasks simultaneously. This mechanism can significantly increase the efficiency of user revocation. Cloud data can be efficiently shared among the public verifier and a large number of users are able to handle a large number of reviewing tasks simultaneously and efficiently.

AbuBakkar Siddik.J, Arun Kumar.A, Gurumoorthy.G, Mattuvarkulali.M, Rekha.R

Cylindrical grinding machining is the most popular machining process of removing metal from a work piece surface in the form of tiny chips by the action of irregularly shaped abrasive particles. It has wide range of applications like automobile, aircraft, and marine industries. Precision and quality have been the critical issues for all these industries. To enhance the quality of machined parts, and to reduce the machining costs and to increase the production rate, it is very important to select the optimal machining parameters. The success of any grinding operation depends upon the proper selection of various operating conditions like work speed, feed rate, depth of cut etc. Optimization of grinding process still remains one of the most challenging problems because of its high complexity and non-linearity while solving it. This research aims to optimize and analyze cylindrical grinding process on Inconel 718. It has High tensile strength and hardness, high thermal resistance and low machinability. It is emerging in the fields like aerospace, petroleum and nuclear industries. Thus optimizing cylindrical grinding process for this material may reduce production cost in industries. In the present study, L-9 orthogonal array is formed based on Taguchi Design of Experiments and it is used to optimize the effect of cylindrical grinding parameters on the surface roughness and Material Removal Rate (MRR). For all the three levels of input values main effect plot and Signal to Noise (S/N) ratio are obtained. The results of the analysis are evaluated to find the optimum input values for high surface finish with maximum MRR.

Dynamic Characteristic Studies on Honeycomb Core Filled Cylinder for Spacecraft Structure

Gayathri.D, Muralidhar.K.V, S.Ilakkiya

In any spacecraft mission, structure is the primary load bearing member. Most of the spacecraft structures are cuboidal in shape with a central cylinder and ring that interface with launch vehicle. This central cylinder plays an important role in satisfying overall stiffness and strength requirement of satellite structure, which undergoes various loads during launching and in orbit conditions. Most popular and efficient among cylinder construction is CFRP face-skin sandwiched with Aluminum Honeycomb Core. Cylinder construction using these structures is mainly developed with OX core to get the curved shape, as normal core suffers anticlastic curvature while bending which makes them unsuitable for the cylinder construction. In order to satisfy various stiffness requirements for different missions with the launch vehicle interface geometry constraint, it is not always possible to change the diameter of the cylinder to increase the stiffness. Next efficient alternative is to increase the core thickness to improve stiffness. But manufacturing cylinder honeycomb core with higher thickness is difficult even with the OX core because of anticlastic effects. Thus new design modification for improving the cylinder stiffness is done by inserting the higher thickness core into thin gridded CFRP cylinder which enhances the efficiency. In this paper trade off studies on dynamic and strength characteristics of typical spacecraft structure using this cylinder are studied. Stiffness characteristics are verified for the modified cylinder with that of launch vehicle stiffness constraints. The effect of modified cylinder on the dynamic characteristic of satellite structure is studied using Finite element modeling and analysis.

Casting is the significance of heat transfer by a substance during change of phase evolution. Most of the casting design consists of gating and riser system. It has a direct influence on the quality of casting. During the solidification process, the casting defects like shrinkage, porosity and hot tears are affect the final product. To avoid and eliminate these defects by standard casting riser and gating system design is essential. As per chvorinov’s rule, the volume of riser should be greater than mould cavity. In this work, 3D model of riser is designed by using Creo software and ANSYS are used to analysis and optimize the framework. The first step is to evaluate castability of the design and the model of part design is converted into a casting model. Parametric representation of the riser is to be carried out and various parameters are to be changed to generate Creo models in ANSYS. The optimization of parameters is to be carried out by varying the riser design parameters to improve the casting quality in sand casting process. The actual riser design can be defined by optimization techniques and the important parameters like height and diameters of riser can be analyzed and proposed to sand casting process.

K.Vidhya, T.Palanisamy, R.Thamarai Selvan

Concrete is a relatively brittle material, when subjected to normal stresses and impact loads. As a result for these characteristics, plain concrete members could not support loads and tensile stresses that occurred, on concrete beams and slabs. Concrete members are reinforced with continuous reinforcing bars to withstand tensile stresses and compensate for the lack of ductility and strength. The addition of steel reinforcement significantly increases the strength of concrete, and results in concrete with homogenous tensile properties; however the development of micro cracks in concrete structures must be checked. The introduction of fibers is generally taken as a solution to develop concrete in view of enhancing its flexural and tensile strength. M40 grade of concrete are arrived with the following ingredients such as Cement, Fine aggregate, Coarse aggregate, Water, Steel fibre, Fly ash, Silica fumes and Superplasticizers. Then variables in this study include the steel fiber (Hooked end and crimpled) percentage in addition to the weight of cement. The Compressive strength, tensile strength and flexural behavior of steel fiber reinforced concrete beam with the varying percentage of fiber of M40 grade of concrete.

The dissimilar metal joints of have been emerged as a structural material for various industrial applications which provides good combination of mechanical properties like strength, corrosion resistance with lower cost. Selections of joining process for such a material are difficult because of their physical and chemical properties. The stainless steel and mild steel dissimilar material joints are very common structural applications joining of stainless steel and mild steel is very critical because of carbon precipitation and loss of chromium leads to increase in porosity affects the quality of joint leads deteriorate strength. Gas tungsten arc welding is a fusion welding process having wide applications in industry. In this process proper selection of input welding parameters is necessary in order to control weld distortion and subsequently increase the productivity of the process. In order to obtain a good quality weld and control weld distortion, it is therefore, necessary to control the input welding parameters.

In recent years air guns have become popular among the people for hunting and other outdoor games. Air guns represent the oldest pneumatic technology. In this project, it is planned to build up a new model motor powered air machine gun, as the existing air gun is usually single targeted and single triggered, once it is shot, the probability of hitting the target is meager and the next shot is possible only after few seconds of reloading. These issues are considered as a problem statement in this project because the mobile target will escape, if the first shot is missed. The proposed air machine gun can be used for multiple shots. This will give additional advantage while hunting, as multiple bullets can be triggered simultaneously or individually depending on the target either with more power or with accuracy. Considering the latter, if the target escapes from the first shot, the next pellet can be immediately shot to hit the target without reloading. On the other hand, machine guns that are used in defense are powered with fire powder that can cause huge air pollution at the time of war. The proposed air machine gun will cause no pollution to the environment. The main challenge now is the weight of the gun as electric motor is fitted to the gun and the power of the drive. This problem makes the gun semi portable as power source is required, where the gun is to be used.
