Phase Tracking of Resonance Frequency to Avoid Fatigue Failure

Authors- Mylaudy Dr. S. Rajadurai, B.Harinivas, D. Karthick

The vibration testing industry has made good use of sine vibrations to find the frequencies at which a particular device under test (DUT) resonates. These frequencies are important to the vibration testing because they are the frequencies at which the DUT vibrates with the peak amplitude and, therefore, may be the most harmful to the DUT. it can be assumed that the ideal phase value for a resonance is 90° under forced vibration. In reality, however, this theoretical phase value of 90° could be different because the phase value may be affected by the location of the accelerometer or due to a lag in the measurement instrumentation. This paper reveals with the automatic phase tracking of DUT to produce the maximum transmissibility value at a particular resonance under forced vibration using vibration controller. This technique makes fatigue tests more consistent with real-life excitations.

Keywords- DUT, Amplitude, Resonance, Frequency, Phase, Forced Vibration, Real Life Excitations.

Development and Implementation of Nozzle Clogging Index at Continuous Caster to Improve Length of Casting

Authors: Rajendra. T, Rachappa Kadli, Anil Kumar.S.

Abstract- In the current practice at slab caster shop of JSW Steel, there is no tool available which can correctly quantify the nozzle clogging during casting operation. As a result, operators roughly estimate the extent of clogging by monitoring the stopper rod position during casting. In light of above, a model has been developed which helps the operator to take effective action to either release or avoid clogging which would further improve the length of casting by allowing more heats in tundish.

A Study on the Performance of Crushed Clam (Egeria Radiata) Shells (CCS) as Partial Replacement Material for Fine Aggregates in Concrete

Authors: F.A Olutoge, B.E Yabefa, H.Mujib, Olawale S. O. A.

Abstract- The scarcity and high cost of conventional construction materials to the average people in the society has challenged researchers to look for low cost construction materials that are abundantly available in our environment. This study presents the performance of CCS as a constituent material in a concrete as partial fine aggregate replacement. Physical and mechanical properties of CCS and the fresh and hardened concrete were determined. Concrete specimens of 100x100x100mm, 100x100x500mm and 100mm diameter by 200mm height were constructed as cubes, beams and cylinders respectively. The crushed Clam shells were used to replace the fine aggregates at 0%, 10%, 20%, 30% and 40% replacement levels with a mix ratio of 1:2:4 and w/c ratio of 0.5. The slump test method was used to ascertain the workability of the concrete. Compressive, splitting tensile and flexural strengths and density of the concrete were evaluated after 7, 14, 21, and 28days curing period at the different percentage replacement levels. In all, the maximum strengths of 20.31, 2.47, 1.92N/mm2 were obtained at 10% replacement as compressive, splitting tensile and flexural strengths respectively in 28 days curing period. The range of values for the density is 2610, 2650, 2540, 2590, and 2510Kg/m3 for 0-40% replacement level respectively at 28 days curing. Increase in percentage of CCS in the concrete let to a reduction of the density, compressive, splitting tensile and flexural strengths respectively. But in all cases, the strength increased with increasing curing age. Replacement level of 10 -20% was found appropriate for the construction of normal and lightweight concretes.

Keywords- Clam shells, compressive, fine aggregates, flexural, and splitting tensile strength.

Review on LAN Security

Authors: Monika, Savita Bisnoi

Abstract: - Wireless Local Area Networks (WLANs) are cost effective and desirable gateways to mobile computing. They allow computers to be mobile, cable less and communicate with speeds close to the speeds of wired LANs but can’t achieve same speed. So wired network is always best in case of speed of transfer data. These features came with expensive price to pay in areas of security of the network. The functions performed by a client and a server are complementary and can be implemented by a set of software modules, hardware components, or a combination thereof. Client and/or server runs on dedicated separate machines. This paper identifies and summarizes these security concerns and their solutions.

Predictive Analytics of Cluster Using Associative Techniques Tool

Authors: Jyoti, Savita Bisnoi

Abstract: - Mining the data means fetching out a piece of data from a huge data block. The basic work in the data mining can be categorized in two subsequent ways. One is called classification and the other is called clustering. Although both refers to some kind of same region but still there are differences in both the terms. The goal of the thesis is to experimentally exploring clustering and classification technique for predictive analysis. Apriori Algorithms is implemented using C#. Apriori partitioning and sampling algorithms have been implemented and their performance is evaluated extensively. We are also analysis diabetic data on WEKA tool using clustering and classification technique.

A Review Paper on Improving the Efficiency of IC Engine Fins by Varying its Material and Shape

Authors: Vikash Kumar, Dr.S K Jain, Dr.Sukul Lomash

Abstract- When fuel is burned in an engine, heat is produced. Additional heat is also generated by friction between the moving parts. Only approximately 30% of the energy released is converted into useful work while remaining 70% must be removed from the engine to prevent the parts from melting. In air-cooled I.C engine, extended surfaces called fins are provided at the periphery of engine cylinder to increase heat transfer rate. That is why the analysis of fin is important to increase the heat transfer rate. The main of aim of this work is to study various researches done in past to improve heat transfer rate of cooling fins by changing cylinder fin geometry and material.

Keywords- IC Engine, Fins, Engine Performance, Efficiency.

Control of Load Frequency of Power System by PID Controller using PSO

Authors: Shiva Ram Krishna, Prashant Singh, M. S. Das

Abstract: The objective of this work is to controlling the load frequency control of generator of power system by using PID controller. Parameters of PID controller such as proportional gain, integral gain and derivative gain can be controlled by new evolutionary technique called particle swarm optimization. By proper tuning of PID controller parameters by PSO, reduce the area control error and to minimize the frequency deviation of single area system as well as two area systems. These works establish a simulink Model by using Matlab for single area control and two area control system. In this work used a global search optimization technique PSO to find out optimum tuning of PID controller parameters. Results obtained by this method shows that the result is improved and get steady state very frequently.

Keywords: Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO), Generation frequency control, PID controller, single area and two area control system, tuning of parameters.

Review on Clustering Technique on Segmentation in Data Mining

Authors: Jyoti, Savita Bisnoi

Abstract: - Clustering techniques have obtained adequate results when are applied to text mining problems. However, different runs of the same clustering technique on a specific text set may result in different solutions. The cause of this difference is the choice of the initial cluster setting and the values of the parameters associated with the technique. A definition of good initial settings and optimal parameters values is not an easy task, particularly because both vary largely from one text set to another.

Effects of Various Reinforcements in Oblique Loading of Rectangular Thin Walled Structure using FEA

Authors: Abhishek Pratap Singh, Rahul Mishra

Abstract— This paper investigates the oblique loading of rectangular hollow box using reinforcements to absorb crash energy. The rectangular hollow rectangular box is a thin walled structure commonly used as crash box in automobiles today. It is loaded from one end with help of rigid mass impactor and other side is fixed. The performance of box in oblique loading is compared with axial loading so that we can estimate the difference in energy absorption, force displacement, stiffness variation, acceleration, specific energy absorption & crush force efficiency characteristics. This calculation is done using FEA Explicit code Pam-Crash which is suitable for dynamic analysis.

Keywords— Frontal crash, Oblique loading, Crushing mechanism, Crashworthiness, Impact Energy absorption, Thin walled structures.
