Preparation and Characterization of AL-Fly Ash Metal Matrix Composite by Stir Casting Method

Abstract: Composites involve two or more component materials that are generally combined in an attempt to improve material properties such as stiffness, strength, toughness. Composed of a discrete reinforcement & distributed in a continuous phase of matrix, composites are the most successful materials used for recent works in the industry. There has been an increasing interest in composites containing low density and low cost reinforcement. Among various reinforced materials used, fly ash is one of the most inexpensive and low density reinforcement available in large quantities as waste product during combustion of coal in thermal plant. In this paper AL- fly ash composites produced by fly ash were observed with the help of optical microscopy. The hardness, tensile, toughness tests were carried on the composite. Physical and mechanical properties of composite were obtained.

Introduction and Simulation of Distributed Power Flow Controller (DPFC)

Abstract: This paper represents a new dimension of the Flexible AC Transmission System (FACTS) called as Distributed Power-Flow Controller (DPFC).  The  aim  of  this  paper  is  to  develop  a  new  type  of  power-flow controlling device that offers the same control capability as the UPFC, at a reduced cost and with increased reliability. The new device, the so-called Distributed Power Flow Controller (DPFC), is a further development of the UPFC.  The  DPFC  is  derived  from  the  unified  power -flow  controller  (UPFC)  and  DPFC  has  the  same control capability as the UPFC. The DPFC can be considered as a UPFC with an eliminated common dc link. The active power exchange between the shunt and series converters, which is through the common dc link in the UPFC,  is  now  through  the  transmission  lines  at  the  third -harmonic  frequency.  The interaction between the DPFC, the network and the machines are analyzed.

Extraction of Most Relevant Data from Deep Web Mining

Abstract: Extraction of web content from the deep web page is the tough task to retrieve the relevant data because they are web page programming language dependent. The challenges of such web page extraction are increases every day due to expanding of huge web database, which makes the researchers to concentrate on deep web mining. Whenever user submits a query into search engine, it retrieves the list of best matching web page with short summary of notes such as title, some text from specific site. But retrieved information from web database is locked as deep web (Hidden Web or Invisible Web) on web page. In this paper, we proposed ontological technique with WordNet to extract the data records from the deep web pages. This technique discovers best matching words, eliminates unnecessary tags and able to extract large variety of data records with different structures.

Studies on Flame Retardancy Properties of a Novel Epoxy-Polysulphide based Coating on Wood Panel Products and Bamboo Composites

Abstract: The objective of the study is to develop a Poly sulphide –Epoxy resin based  halogen free  novel flame retardant  coating which forms an insulating layer in the event of fire and its flame retardancy properties on wood based panel products and bamboo composites .The coating formulation was optimized by poly sulphide based epoxy resin as binder, ceramic material, carbohydrate and halogen free fire retardant which forms an insulating layer on the surface and blowing agent . In order to evaluate the flame retardancy properties the optimized coating was coated on the surface of plywood and bamboo composites and flame retardancy properties was carried as per both IS/BS  Specifications . The data revels that the excellent flame retardancy properties like flame penetration, flammability was achieved, however the rate of burning was satisfactorily when tested as per IS: 5509. A Flame of LPG was allowed to play on the surface of coated and uncoated specimen to test Ignitability .and surface spread of flame .Result shows excellent flame retardancy properties compare to conventional flame retardant coating used .From physical observation it was observed that Thick coatings insulate the treated material against high temperatures. the coating melts under the action of heat, covering the treated material with an impermeable insulating crust that deprives the wood of oxygen. However the study reveals the generation of some gases on event of fire though there was no halogen and ammonium gases and coating was intumscent in nature.

Image Steganography using Polynomials

Abstract: Steganography is the art of hiding secret messages inside other messages as until recently had been the poor cousin of cryptography, to communicate privately in open channel. The disadvantage of cryptography is that cryptanalysis’s will break the secret key and secret message will be revealed .Steganography serves as a better way of securing message than cryptography. Steganography gained importance in the past few years due to the increasing need for providing secrecy in an open environment like internet. Many techniques are used to secure information such as cryptography that aims to scramble the information sent and make it unreadable while steganography is used to conceal the information so that no one can sense its existence. There have been many techniques for hiding messages in images in such a manner that the alterations made to the image are perceptually indiscernible. A new steganography encoding scheme which separates the colour channels of the windows bit map images and then hides the images randomly using polynomials in the LSB of any colour component of choose pixel. The polynomials may be of any type with constants and variables. a new steganographic encoding scheme, randomly hide messages in the LSB of any component of the chosen pixel using polynomial. If polynomial is used, hacker needs to predict more than one number. i.e. all coefficients of polynomial correctly to decode and probability of finding all right coefficients correctly is less compared to predicting single seed as in case random generator. So the strength of the stealth is increased by choosing higher dimensional polynomial.

A Comparative Study on Unimodal and Multimodal Biometric Recognition

Abstract: Biometrics is one of the recent trends in security, which is mainly used for verification and recognition systems. By using biometrics we confirm a particular person’s claimed identity based on particular person’s physiological or behavioral characteristics such as fingerprint, face or voice etc. Most biometric systems deployed in real-world applications are unimodal, such as they use a single source of information for authentication (e.g., single fingerprint, face, voice etc.). Some of the limitations imposed by unimodal biometric systems can be overcome by including multiple sources of information for establishing identity. In this paper, it is shown that fingerprint and face recognition can form a good combination for a multimodal biometric system.

Paper Title:

Back Operated Wheelchair

Abstract: Our project aims at developing a low cost mobility solution for paraplegics, which is equally good for use by persons with disabled arms and hands. Today many disabled persons are dependent on wheelchairs for their mobility. For instance, in Netherlands, approximately 82 percent of individuals with spinal cord injury (SCI), admitted for inpatient rehabilitation, are wheelchair users (Post and others 1997). [et al Riemer JK Vegter,2010]. Mobility aids currently used in developing nations are not able to fully meet the user’s requirements. Various automated wheelchairs available today are designed to satisfy the needs of Paraplegics but not efficient and cost effective solutions up till now have been developed to cater for the needs of the Tetraplegics ( i.e. people with all four limbs disabled). In case of Paraplegics also the situation is not very favorable. Thus, our design of a special automated wheelchair operated by back only (BOW) is an attempt to help the tetraplegics around the globe thus enabling them to move around and commute from one place to another without any assistance from anyone. Furthermore, another factor which has been taken into consideration for designing is that the design be very easy to manufacture involving simple mechanisms and be affordable by all needy patients.

Affordable, automatic, Back operated, physically disabled, tetraplegics, wheelchair.
