14. Treatment of sewage waste water using an agricultural waste corn cobs

Corncobs are agricultural wastes obtain in maize cultivation. It is less utilized part of the maize plant. Due to rigidity and their porous structure they can be used as an absorbent. Corncobs are available in large quantity, it may be burnt or given as food for animals. But if corncobs are burnt it causes air pollution which we already saw what happen in Delhi (Capital of India) and if corncobs are given as food to animals, they also not take it as it contains hemicellulose content in it and acts as an obstructing agent in the elementary canal of the animals. So, it is a good idea to use corncobs agricultural waste to treat wastewater. Sometimes they are thrown away but naturally, they take too much time to biodegrade. In this treatment no need of chemicals and electricity. The wastewater can be treated naturally using corn cobs as an absorbent. As corn cobs are cheap, this is more economical treatment. It is also easy and simple to operate. So, it can be adopted in villages also.

24. Tracing the original source of FMCG-SCM using Blockchain

Fast Moving Consumer Goods come a long way from the production of their raw materials to finally being bought by the end user, i.e. the customer. Their Supply Chain Management is a tedious task and doesn’t really provide you with an auditable trail. The source and thus the quality of the product raises few questions. The paperwork involved in this leads to days of auditing for even a small discrepancy arising in the whole SCM. One of the obvious solutions to this is the digitalization of the whole process. But that still doesn’t stop it from getting tampered. The truth still poses a question with the quality of the product being consumed by the end user. Adding another level of surety is only possible by ensuring that the data is not tampered with during the whole supply chain of the product. This is only possible by having a blockchain to moderate the whole process. This will not only make sure that the data regarding the product is true to its point but also make the auditing easy and fast in case of any discrepancy. Few western countries have already implemented blockchain for the products which require high quality throughout the supply chain. Since the type of supply chains vary and data privacy is required in some stages between different parties, private blockchains are preferred in such scenarios to create that balance between truth auditability and data privacy.

26. Project management study on metro tunneling project- A case study on BKC metro project

The primary aim of the study was to identify the risks involved in the “Line-III” of the metro project in Mumbai. A comprehensive evaluation was done based on a literature review of similar projects, government reports and finally site visit including a comprehensive interview of several teams. Some of the biggest risks include land acquisition, seasonal problems (monsoon), the safety of nearby buildings, manpower allocation. Thorough analysis and interview helped in identifying sixteen risks in total and then they were subjected to Risk Break Down structure where each of the risks was categorized and its impact and likelihood were determined. Then all of the identified risks were subjected to Impact- Likelihood matrix and risk register were developed. Primarily four risks i.e Clearance from nearby buildings (PAP), Geological Changes in specific radius of the project, Drainage/ Waterlogging, Fire hazard were lying in the red zone of the matrix which suggests that these were the risk that needs proper mitigating strategies first followed by other risks. Diamond analysis of the project based on interviews showed in terms of “novelty” the project could be termed “platform” as new technology like NATBM (New Australian Tunnel Boring Machine) was used but no radical technology was used in the project, in terms of “technology” it was “high-tech”, in terms of “complexity” it could be termed as “systems” as the project involved unique challenges which were resolved by some adaptive approaches, for “pace” the project was “time-critical” as any delay in the overall completion of the project would have resulted in overall increase in cost. Interviews were taken first to identify the risks associated with the project and then to find out the quantitative nature of each question. Thematic analysis of the interview was done and eight prominent themes were identified and then they were subjected to analysis. Scale wise analysis of the questions was done to quantify the qualitative approach of interviews. Overall the project was an innovative one where several risks were involved and there were properly mitigated/ transferred. New technology was used to overcome the unique risks associated with the underground tunneling process. Safety was given top priority in the site as well as the execution approaches used in the project.

31. Infection control

Hospital Acquired Infections (HAI) are a major global safety concern for both patients as well as healthcare professionals. Many factors promote infection among hospitalized patients – decreased immunity among patients; increasing variety of medical procedures and invasive techniques creating potential routes of infection; and the transmission of the drug-resistant bacteria among the crowded hospital populations where poor infection control practices can facilitate transmission. Dental care providers, in particular, are also at an increased risk as they are providing care by working with sharp instruments at very high speeds and limited access in an environment that is bathed in saliva and, in many instances, blood. Dental care professionals are at high risk of cross-infection while treating patients. The dental clinic is an environment where dis¬ease transmission occurs easily. Prevention of cross-infection in the dental clinic is, therefore, a crucial aspect of the dental practice, and dental clinic workers must adopt certain basic routines while practicing.

32. Analysis of traffic characteristics of intercity highway

Majority of Indian National Highways and State Highways are two-lane roads. Due to heterogeneous traffic and increase in the number of vehicles every year, the speed, capacity and Percentile speed of these roads is very less. Nowadays these two-lane roads are upgraded into multilane highways. In this project an attempt is made to study the changes in traffic characteristics of road after its up gradation. Four traffic characteristics namely Spot Speed, Volume, Percentile Speed and Capacity are studied in this project. Data was collected from National Highway No. 361 which was two-lane road and is now up graded into four-lane road. The data of two-lane road and four-lane road was compared and analysed. Spot Speed is used to derive the distribution of traffic stream at a particular location. Flow or volume denotes the number of vehicles travelling on the road with respect to time. 15th, 50th, 85th percentile speed was calculated to study the traffic behaviour on road. Capacity was calculated by using Greenshield’s model.

34. The impact of taxi zoning on transportation system in Nagpur city

A taxi zoning system was for the first time introduced by the Derg region about 20 years ago. The Nagpur taxi transport service, which is believed to have begun from 2012 to 2016 with small cars has gone through various stages and systems before it reached the current level. The authorities of transport confirmed many times in the past that, the existing public transport system in Nagpur is critically inadequate to provide services for the existing travel demand. The overall performance of mass transport was constrained by many problems such as low transport service accessibility and standard, lack of taxi station, parking spaces and poor traffic management and control have remained the most critical issues to day. The need for adequate transport services has been kept on growing. This study investigates the reason which assesses the need to zone the taxi service in Nagpur city and the impact will result from the zoning in service delivery in the city. Structured questionnaire and survey interview have been prepared and targeted to three categories, control staff which includes a transport agency, traffic police, taxi association. The second category includes taxi drivers, terminal attendants, and third category include service users or passengers that use a taxi as the main mode in the southwest zone. The descriptive and exploratory research methods, quantitative research methods are employed to study the information gained from the structured questionnaire and interview questions. The collected data were classified, organized, and interpreted by using descriptive statistics including tables, frequency distributions, and percentages to give a digested picture of the data. The analysis of the data showed that taxi zoning transport service in Nagpur city may fail to achieve its purpose as stakeholders do not have any training concerning to system, there is a problem of implementation and it is also noted that 65 percent of mode share for two-wheelers contribute in the city, population is expected to grow annually by 3.8 percent, taxi drivers gain much more extra income when they cut trips, especially during rush hours, about 66.6 percent of respondents replied that they could not find taxi easily and most of the respondents say that inside facilities of taxi are not comfortable for customers. This study will help the taxi service industry to develop and design their future market strategy.

35. A review- Development of fragility curves for an RC frames

Structural elements square measure typically subjected to dynamic loadings in their operating life. Very often these components may have to perform in a severe dynamic environment wherein the maximum damage results from the resonant vibration. Susceptibility to fracture of materials because of vibration is set from stress and frequency. The maximum amplitude of the vibration should be within the restricted for the protection of the structure. Hence vibration analysis has become very important in designing a structure to know in advance its response and to take necessary steps to control the structural vibrations and its amplitudes. The non-linear or large amplitude flexural vibration of plates has received considerable attention in recent years because of the great importance and interest attached to the structures of low flexural rigidity. These easily deformable structures vibrate at large amplitudes. The solution obtained supported the lineage models give no over a primary approximation to the particular solutions. The increasing demand for more realistic models to predict the responses of elastic bodies combined with the availability of super computational facilities has enabled researchers to abandon the linear theories in favor of non-linear methods of solutions. In the present investigation, large amplitude vibration of several rectangular and skew plates has been studied using an iso-parametric quadratic plate bending element for the finite element method. The formulations have incorporated the shear deformation of the plates. Plates with various boundary conditions have been considered in the study. The effect of variations in the Poisson’s ratio, thickness parameter & plate aspect ratio on the non-linear frequency ratio has also been included in the research.

40. Promoting quality culture in HEIs

Developing, sustaining and enhancing quality culture is the responsibility of any institution. NAAC is an External Quality Agency while IQAC is an Internal Quality Agency. Both need to be balanced. Besides seven criteria, NAAC lays emphasis upon core values, assessment indicators for accreditation. The purpose of this exploration is to analyze the assessment indicators for quality culture in the context of Higher Education. Quality is not accidental, but it is the outcome of continuous and strenuous efforts for excellence. Quality cannot be taught. It has to be ingrained just as a sponge soaks the water. Developing, promoting and sustaining the quality culture is the responsibility of an institution. Higher Education is an instrument for change and development. Higher Education can provide highly skilled manpower, it can contribute to the accentuation of class differences in society. It can also contribute to the quality of life by developing virtues, aptitudes, and attitudes of human society. We, who are in charge of the institutions have to create an atmosphere where the potential of every individual can be put to use to its best level. That is the role and the challenge before the teacher. We must remember “time and tide waits for none” Hence, there is no time for us to lose. It is not difficult for us to see what goals today are worthy of striving. What is needed is not only choice but also faith, not only selection but also devotion, not only well-reasoned discrimination but also dedication.

41. Theft detection system using wireless smart energy meter

Nowadays electricity meter reading and billing is conducted manually by a door-to-door system. This system requires large man power and is time and energy consuming. The theft of electricity is a major concern of the transmission and distribution losses in the supply of electricity. To overcome these limitations a prototype module smart energy meter reading system is proposed which includes advanced wireless technology called “ZIGBEE”. In this system, time delay, errors, and theft of electricity is reduced. The Zigbee technology works at low frequency, low data rate hence it is preferred more and its cost is also less. Wireless Electric Meter is used for remote collection of unit count and sending the bill on the consumer's meter screen. Wireless automatic meter reading technology not only saves human resources but improves the accuracy and remote access of a meter. The consumers are no more dependent on conventional power. The proposed meter calculates the net bill, units consumed and theft detection is displayed on the LCD screen. Keywords: Zigbee, man power, smart energy meter.

42. Effect of vehicle characteristics and road geometric interface on capacity of roads

India is the nation with heterogeneous traffic condition and the increasing population day to day, this reduces the capacity of roads. The capacity of the roads is affected by the road geometric condition, driver’s behavior and the traffic condition on the roads. In the following study, the effects of road geometry and vehicle characteristic are seen on the capacity of roads. The study was done on the urban roads of Nagpur, Maharashtra. The roads taken in the study are of different types with different geometric conditions, which are analyzed by their conditions and dimensions of the roads. The second phase of the study deals with vehicular characteristics. The proportion of each type of vehicles has its own effect on the capacity of the roads. The speed of the vehicles is also an important factor for finding capacity. As the traffic in India is heterogeneous the Passenger Car Unit (PCU) is used for calculating the capacity of roads. The regression models are used to find the results of the proportional effects of vehicles and vehicle/speed on the capacity. The final capacity of the roads is done with the Greenshields model. The estimation of capacity is done from the linear equation generated by Greenshields model. And then results are compared with the result obtained from the regression model to find the effects of the roads.

44. Optimum design of reinforced concrete flat slab with drop and column head

A reinforced concrete slab is supported directly by concrete columns without the use of beams. Flat slabs are highly versatile elements widely used in construction, providing minimum depth, fast construction and allowing flexible column grids. In this work, an attempt is made for optimum design of reinforced concrete flat slab with drop panel is according to the IS code method. The objective function is the total cost of the structure including the cost of the slab, drop and columns. The cost of each structural element covers that of materials (steel, concrete). In this work, a program in MATLAB was written for a flat slab with a drop by direct design method. Using this MATLAB program parameter optimization process is done for different span in both the directions. From this optimization, it is found that the cost of a flat slab decreases as the number of span increases by keeping the total length of the slab as constant.

45. A review on “Study the performance of outrigger system under seismic loads”

High-rise structures in high seismic zones are subjected to earthquake forces, where the building performance is weakest in storey displacement and storey drift. Many types of research have adopted various techniques to improve the performance of high rise building. These techniques include the provision of core shear wall, bracing systems, dampers, etc. these techniques are able to reduce storey displacement to some extent, but the storey drift is the constraint was the performance of building weakens. This constraint makes the research work to adopt the technique of outrigger as an ancient technique used to reduce the vibration of the structure under the seismic shake. Hence, in this paper, a review of literature is studied to check the performance of the outriggers structural system in high rise building under seismic regions. The outrigger location and depth play an important role in the performance of the building. It is also observed that the outrigger structural system along with the core system reduces storey displacement up to some extent, but helps to reduce storey drift within the limit.

49. Experimental study: Alccofine as strength enhancer for geopolymer concrete

Concrete is the most consumptive material after water in the world because of its strength and durability. But the production of cement depends on natural resources and emits a huge amount of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. For the sustainable environment and to reduce the global warming caused by the carbon dioxide emitted by the cement industry new substitutes which are eco-friendly is the need of the hour. Geopolymer concrete also is known as green concrete or cementless concrete produced by 100% replacement of cement with the waste product obtained from the industries. Geopolymer concrete uses fly ash, slag, and rice husk as a binder which is a substitute for conventional concrete. In present work, the different trail mixtures with variation in Alccofine were prepared to check the workability, compressive strength and permeability of Geopolymer concrete. Variation in content of Alccofine is done as 0%, 10%, 20%, 25% and 30%. As arccosine is an admixture which is micro-fine in its structure, so it may affect the fresh and hardened properties of Geopolymer concrete. In the study, results show that with increase in content of Alccofine up to 25% the significant increase in the compressive strength of concrete can be gained.

50. Prediction of building structure age using machine learning

Determining the service life of building structure is a critical step for the evaluation of maintenance of the building. If the service life of a building is known then proper maintenance and refurbishment steps can be taken. Previous studies focused only on physical obsolescence whereas new concept focused on other new six criteria. The objective of this paper is to use the entire six criteria for the evaluation of obsolescence for the prediction of the age of building a structure using machine learning. A prediction model for predicting age is developed by combining the six obsolescence criteria, absolute weights, diagnostic scores, and machine learning. As obsolescence is predicted using all six criteria, the manual calculation is reduced to provide more accuracy. This prediction model has built using python language, Django as a framework and PyCharm IDE. To make this prediction system more adaptable the website is created and hosted on webhost000.com by combining prediction model and UI of the website which displays the predicted age for respective diagnostic scores. Hence predicting age is useful for taking actions to prevent future degradation.

The Mission has the mandate to reach out about 100 million rural poor households in 2.5 lakh Gram Panchayats across the country. The program is being implemented in Karnataka state and Mysore district is one of the five National Rural Livelihood Project areas. Facilitating sustainable livelihood opportunities and encouraging them to come out of poverty is the focus. The study based on primary data collected from four blocks of Mysore district. The multistage sampling frame used to gather the data from beneficiaries. The study consists of 400 beneficiaries, data collected during 2017-18. It was found in the study that out of 400 respondents only 116 respondents were aware of all the benefits available in Sanjeveni programme. The other findings have also inferred that the National Rural Livelihood Mission (Sanjeevini) has not succeeded in generating awareness about the scheme and its benefits among its own Self Help Group members completely. The author further found that Majority of them have been part of the groups for accessing the credit facilities. Making NRLM as the livelihood mission in Karnataka is still a distant dream as the current results highlight only credit and thrift activities. Livelihood promotional activities have required to be paced up.

53. Division and replication of data for cloud security

Re-appropriating data to a pariah legitimate control performed in conveyed figuring offers ascend to security concerns. The information bargain can happen because of cloud-based assaults by malignant clients. Raised security frameworks are in this way required to ensure the information in the cloud. It's the commitment of a focal information distributor to gather delicate information from numerous gatherings and after that before distributing for information mining, make it mysterious. In such occasions, information clients may have a solid interest to quantify the utility of distributed information as most awry encryption systems effectively affect the estimation of data. This assignment is nontrivial, be that as it may, as estimating the utility, as a rule, requires amassed crude information, which isn't uncovered to information clients because of concerns with respect to secrecy. Or then again more terrible, information distributors may even undermine the crude information since no one, including the individual providers, knows the full data-set. This venture proposes a security protecting utility confirmation instrument dependent on different parts of cryptographic methodology, a differentially private procedure intended for set-assessed information. This proposition can gauge the information utility dependent on the collected crude information's encoded frequencies rather than the plain qualities, denying rupture of secrecy. Related, the accuracy of the encoded frequencies given by the distributor could be subtly confirmed, which recognizes noxious distributors. This method is additionally stretched out to DiffGen, another system made for social information which is differentially private revealing. The security and productivity of the proposed framework is exhibited by our hypothetical and exploratory appraisals.

54. Hyperledger based electronic voting system

In many countries, the elections are carried out by a single administration and have complete control over the database and system. The administration has to manage the entire election process which occurs for a long period of time. Generic elections still use a centralized system; some of the problems that can occur in conventional electoral systems are that it is possible to tamper with the database of considerable opportunities. The aspect of security and transparency is a threat from a still widespread election with the conventional system (offline). Unlike the electoral system, there are many conventional uses of paper in its implementation. The best way to overcome the difficulty faced is by decentralizing the system used for elections. This can be achieved by making use of Blockchain technology, the entire database is owned by many users in a blockchain. Blockchain itself has been used in the Bitcoin system known as the decentralized Bank system. By adopting blockchain in the distribution of databases on e-voting systems can reduce one of the cheating sources of database manipulation. Unlike Bitcoin with its Proof of Work, this paper proposes a method based on a hyperledger to enable voting.

56. Real time security surveillance using machine learning

As we know security has become a major concern in modern society. It is achieved by surveillance which is capable of taking brisk actions. This paper presents a new system architecture which provides real-time surveillance where unauthenticated people are differentiated and provides the data flow and storage path. Recognition errors are narrowed as much as possible to make the system work efficiently. The proposed approach exploits the Viola-Jones method for face detection, the LBPH (Local Binary Pattern Histogram) algorithm as feature tracker. This combination of algorithms gives more accuracy and less processing time in the proposed design. User data is stored separately from the trained file to make the system more reliable. The proposed design can be integrated into any place which is concerned about security and prevents the security breaches before they occur.

64. Smart braking system

This paper describes a new smart braking system for bikes. Road accidents are commonplace in today’s scenario. Accidents cause worse damage, serious injury, and even death. Accidents prevention has been one of the leading areas for research. Mainly focus on prevention of accidents due to nervousness, drunken driving, etc. Manual methods of applying brakes are always dangerous as it leads to accidents. Nowadays no. of accidents are increases. Unconsciousness of the driver, uncontrollable speed of the vehicle and manual operation of braking systems are the reason for accidents. It is necessary to control brakes automatically through electronics devices to minimize accident problems. In this research paper, we proposed an effective methodology for the automatic controlling of a braking system to prevent accidents with the help of electronics engineering. The system consists of ultrasonic sensor wave emitter fitted at the front portion of the bike and ultrasonic receiver to receive the signal. The actuator pulls the brake lever through which a piston is pushed which then uses hydraulic fluid to apply brakes(disc type). Here we use actuator in this system instead of servomotor. This reflected wave gives the signal to MCU to applying brakes automatically. By using this System we can reduce no. of accidents.

73. Portable biometrics using LoRa modulated interface

Many of the universities in India has always been facing issues with its students’ attendance registry management and thereby wasting valuable manpower and time for the faculties of the institutions. There have also been some standalone biometric devices which are rather costly, as well as non-portable and people can tamper with them. These problems are overcome by using a portable device which checks the validation of the unique characteristics (fingerprint) of the subject if it is a valid input, and then it will store the data of the subject’s presence in the Excel spreadsheet in the faculty’s personal computer and report the success. The data (ID of the student) will be sent through an LPWAN communication protocol called LoRa. This way there will be complete safety of the data, as it will not be tampered (in case of standalone devices, which can be tampered with) and the complete information is stored in the central database. The automatic logging greatly reduces the task carried out by the faculties at the end of the semesters since the data is readily available and required action can be taken concurrently.

74. Farm produce delivery management

Agriculture provides employment to over 60% of the Indian population. It also contributes 17% for the GDP. However, agricultural marketing has not taken its shape in rural India. The farmers are completely dependent upon local traders and middlemen for disposal of their farm produce. This is due to the lack of good marketing facilities. Hence the products are sold at a throwaway price. The aim behind developing this app is to give the farming community a fair and consistent price for their produces and therefore they farmers can overcome the problem of facing the middlemen. By using this application, the farmers can directly connect with the wholesalers, retailers or the end-users and supply the product directly to them. This will ensure that there is an increase in the profit of the farmers.

76. Design and development of continuous variable transmission with launch gear

A transmission is a machine in a power transmission system, which provides a controlled application of power. Often the term transmission refers simply to the gearbox that uses gears and gear trains to provide speed and torque conversions from a rotating power source to another device. The transmission also provides a reverse gear resulting in backward motion of the vehicle. CVT or continuously variable transmission provides an automatic feature for changing the gear ratio depending upon different engine load conditions. Even being an automatic transmission, CVT consists of lesser moving parts and is simpler and compact design. Metal belt and variable pulleys, one of the most popular kinds of CVT that are used in the automobiles widely because it can provide better acceleration because of higher low ratio and better fuel consumption because of less over drive ratio. Despite providing such advantages, CVT generates less torque at lower engine RPM. This is due to slipping of the belt over the tapered surfaces of the variable pulley. Therefore, a mechanism with a launch gear driving the pulleys to reduce belt slip is to be introduced and developed to overcome this problem increasing torque at lower rpm.

78. Location-aware heterogeneous web service recommendation using Hybrid approach

Web service has been emerged as a promising technique to support inter-operable machine-to-machine interaction which provides a method of communication between electronic devices over a network. As the number of web services with similar functionality has increased rapidly over the internet the web service discovery is not a challenging task but selection and recommendation are becoming more important. The Optimality of a web service depends on its performance and performance is measured through Quality of Service that is QoS. QoS is the set of non-functional properties of a web service which includes response time, price, failure rate and so on. Recommendation system initially searches for the list of web services those having similar functionality, which the user requested and finally the optimal web services are recommended to users. In addition, QoS is widely employed in describing non-functional properties of Web Services for optimizing the Web service composition. Since the number of functionally equivalent services offered on the web with different QoS properties is increasing, it is quite important to recommend services considering their non-functional QoS properties. In this project, we can include the recommendation algorithm which includes ratings, reviews, and emoticons. These details are recommended by using a hybrid algorithm. User details are encrypted using Elliptical curve cryptography. Third parties are difficult to hack the original details. Admin can discover the services based on the highest feedbacks and also recommended based on locations. And also using roll back discovery to cancel the web services automatically to overcome the burden of service cancellation.

79. Multi factor AKE protocol and key stroke authentication for secured communication

Authenticated Key Exchange (AKE) protocol permits a user and a server to authenticate each other for the first time. It generates a session key for the successive communications without any authentication. Many AKE protocols had been proposed to obtain person privateness and authentication for the duration of conversation. Other than secured consultation key established order, these AKE protocols offer a few other useful capability like two-thing user authentication and mutual authentication. But they have got few weaknesses along with vulnerability in opposition to loss of smart card, offline dictionary assault, de-synchronization attack, person anonymity or untraceability. Also, AKE scheme the usage of public key conversation doesn’t suite nicely for lightweight computational gadgets. In this work, a novel Multi-Factor AKE protocol is proposed to overcome all the above-mentioned weaknesses. This protocol supports revoked smart card transactions. The password that is available on the USB device will be overwritten once the user used it. Passwords can be updated without centralized storage. The average time to enter a password will be defined. The user has to type the password within the allocated time, failing which he/she has to enter it again. This security model of AKE supports user anonymity and resist a lost card attack. Elliptical Curve Cryptography algorithm is used for encryption and decryption of the session key. The computational cost and the bandwidth cost for this proposed model are low, which makes it useful in pervasive computing applications and mobile communications. The proposed AKE model is much secured when compared to the existing protocols.

81. An efficient intrusion detection system on blackhole attack for Mobile Ad hoc Network

A Mobile Ad hoc Network (MANET), also known as wireless ad hoc network, is a self-configuration and infrastructure-less network of mobile devices connected wirelessly in a continuous manner. They are vulnerable to various kinds of attacks due to their dynamic nature and lack of a central control point. One of the most several network layer routing attacks in Blackhole attack. Among those routing attacks, black hole throws a challenge in interrupting and degrading the performance of data forwarding operation by dropping the data packets that are transferred through it. To ensure secure MANET an Intrusion Detection System (IDS) is being required. So in this research, we proposed an anomaly based IDS to detect black hole attack in MANET in turn computations have been performed using Neighbors Selective Acknowledgement. In the proposed method, all the nodes receiving data packet send an acknowledgment to the node from which it received it. If the source node receives an acknowledgment from a destination within the threshold time, the path is found to be protected against black hole node and originator takes no action. Otherwise, the source starts verifying nodes. Source node unicast verification message to all the nodes whose details it has stored. Our simulation experiment proves that detects black hole nodes efficiently with less false positive rate of detection and false positive rate.

85. The survey on detection of plant diseases by image processing technique

The traditional agricultural system is causing various problems regarding the production of crops and it is the main reason for plant diseases. There are few diseases like rice blast, brown spot, red stripe and downy fungal which cause significant reduction in both quality and quantity of agricultural products. As we people were busier in our daily life, we need a technology which can automatically detect symptoms of plants and give information about it for farmers, so they can easily diagnosis it. So the technological world and agro scientists have found a solution for the major problem facing by our farmers regarding plant diseases. There are many plant diseases which can cause various problems in the human race. We can implement a system which detects and prevents plant diseases easily by using “IMAGE PROCESSING TECHNIQUE”. This technique initially finds the infected region, later finds features like color, texture, and shape. This can be achieved by 3 steps, first color transformation structure for the input RGB image is created, thus the green pixels are masked and removed by segmentation, later texture statics are computed, and finally extracted features are passed through the classifiers. The major techniques involved in the process are, color space, color histogram, grey level co-occurrence matrix, etc…and classification techniques like support vector machine (SVM), back propagation (BP).

88. Comparative analysis and design of framed structure with different types of infill walls

In the last few decades, the scientific community has been extensively involved in the investigation about the interaction between infill walls and RC frames in the seismic structural behavior. The infill walls are seldom included in the numerical analysis of reinforced concrete structural Systems since infill panels are generally considered as non-structural components. However, these panels affect the structural response to a large extent, because the complexity they introduce to analysis, kept them unaccounted. Therefore, it is crucial to understand the contribution of infill walls to earthquake response of the Structures. In this study, an attempt is made to do comparative analysis and design of the structure when the structure is modeled using different types of infill walls. In this study, an R/C frame structure with a different type of infill walls like AAC Block, Clay Brick, are considered to investigate the effect of different types of infill walls on earthquake response of the structures. The RCC frame analyzed & designed by using STAAD-Pro software. The diagonal strut approach is adopted for modeling of infill walls. The analytical results of the building frame will be compared and analyzed to obtain are storey drift, base shear, Lateral displacement, shear force and bending moment when subjected to static earthquake loadings.

94. Design of Vedic multiplier using Urdhva Tiryagbhyam Sutra

The multiplier is a key building block of all processors, which improves the speed of Digital Signal Processor (DSP), a special application in which we need to reduce the time delay. In the proposed method, we design a Vedic multiplier by using a Vedic Mathematics Sutra called Urdhva Tiryagbhyam, which means “vertically and crosswise”. Vedic Mathematics is mainly based on 16 Sutras and was rediscovered in the early 20th century. In ancient times in India, people used this Sutra for decimal number multiplications effectively. The same basic concept of the above-mentioned Sutra is extended to the multiplication of binary numbers to make use in the digital hardware system. The computation of partial products in parallel in the Urdhva Tiryagbhyam Sutra increases the speed of the computation process and the processing time is reduced in comparison with the use of inbuilt MATLAB functions. In our proposed multiplier design, the delay for the 4X4 Vedic multiplier is reduced and also the number of transistors is reduced by a large amount compared to the previously proposed design.

95. Machine learning techniques for selecting the crop to increase the yield

Agriculture is the backbone of our country for economic growth and it depends on selecting the crops, weather conditions, soil classification, marketing price, etc. In an economy where most of the produced food is from agriculture, selection of crops plays an important role. In light of the decreasing crop produce and shortage of food across the country which also has been a consequence of bad crop selection and thus, leading to increasing farmer suicides. So that we suggest one method which would help the farmers in selecting the crops in order to maximize the yield by summing up the analysis of all the affecting parameters. These affecting parameters can be economical, environmental as well as related to yield in nature. Selecting and maintaining suitable crops for maximum profit involves a sequence of tasks. These tasks should be carried out with basic knowledge and experience. The crop advisor expert system then suggests with a consultation with the farmer (through a graphical user interface) a suitable agricultural crop that can be grown in a land unit with reasoning.

99. Longitude and latitude based travel route recommendation and disaster management system

The development of the travel industry gradually fosters personalized requirements of tourists, such as setting the start place, exploiting interesting activities and organizing the travel route and also natural disasters. Natural Disaster has threatened mankind since history started. Due to the geographic position and climate change, India is one of the most vulnerable countries to natural disasters. The country also lacks an effective disaster preparedness system to confront natural disasters. Timely disaster warning and evacuation guideline can save the lives of the people. In addition, a tourist may face difficulties in finding the best scenic spots on travel time and a safe area or shelter place prior to the occurrence of natural disasters. For this reason, proposed a location-based early travel route recommendation and disaster warning and evacuation system. The system is implemented as a desktop application. Here propose a system which takes advantage of online website to collect information of both scenic spots and real-world local activities, and proposed methods to recommend travel routes for tourists and also develop a disaster management system, which can take their instant location into account and satisfy their personalized demands. Specifically, extract scenery spots dataset from the shared dataset and popular activities from the online website. Then process these items and take the filtering results as the recommendation for tourists. And user registers on the server to get automatic notification of upcoming disaster otherwise user gets a manual notification. The user gets the updated data by the current position obtained by longitude and latitude. When our application recognizes the user in probable disaster zone then the application will disseminate visual disaster warning and evacuation guideline including shortest path of shelter or safe zone on the map of the application.

100. Enhanced skeletonization algorithm for fingerprint images

Minutiae feature based fingerprint recognition systems heavily depend on the pixel-wise operations on skeletonized fingerprint image. The skeletonization is done by proper thinning algorithms. The minutiae features (Ridge endings and Bifurcations) can be extracted from a finely skeletonized fingerprint image. The efficiency of the thinning method determines the quality of the image skeleton and the accuracy in feature extraction. Therefore a new skeletonization technique is proposed. The new skeletonization algorithm uses a number of masks to check whether the pixel is on the boundary or not. Once the pixel is marked as boundary pixel, then the algorithm eliminates that pixel and repeat the process to get the fingerprint image skeleton of one-pixel width. The proposed system is computationally efficient and it preserves the connectivity of the pixels in the image.

105. Smart steering in automobiles for safe driving

Automobiles have been an integral part of the modernization and development of civilization. Right from the beginning of the industrial revolution, there were a huge number of automobiles manufactured. This called in for the need for safety measures to be implemented into the vehicle for protection of the passenger in case of accidents. Various safety measures were implemented in this domain, such as functions like Seat belt, Anti-lock Braking System, Safety Airbag System and many more. The accident toll continued to increase over the years despite these safety measures. These accidents were caused by human negligence such as drunken driving, drowsiness, unhealthy condition and a lot more. This paper, hence, proposes a system in which the driver cannot drive under the influence of alcohol and also a basic level health condition test to check if the driver is fit to drive. It also has a system that can sense if the driver is sleepy and alerts the driver back to his senses if found sleeping. This can ensure the complete safety of the passenger while driving and can reduce the accidents to almost zero values that are caused by the above mentioned human faults. To add to the safety in case of any accident the system houses a crash detector and flame detector along with GPS and GSM modules to alert the nearby authorities to get to the rescue. As a whole, the system can provide unimaginable safety assurance against fatal accidents and hence save precious life's.

106. Therapeutic strategies for vaginal and sexual health promotion in cervical cancer survivors: An overview of practice at the Tertiary Cancer Hospital in Mumbai

Cervical cancer survivors treated with radiotherapy alone or as a part of combined therapy have reported higher occurrence of vaginal morbidity. Vaginal stenosis and dryness are the common vaginal symptoms which tend to persist following radiotherapy treatment. Vaginal dilation with dilator and sexual counselling is routine practice to preserve vaginal patency and to facilitate sexual functioning and gynaecological surveillance. A retrospective review of case files of cervical cancer patients referred for vaginal dilation to Occupational therapy during 2002-2010 was carried out with the aim to understand the therapeutic strategies practiced for improving vaginal and sexual health following pelvic radiotherapy at the tertiary cancer hospital in Mumbai. Data of 183 cervical cancer patients which met the study criteria, was collected with reference to the stage of the disease, treatment received, details about vaginal dilation following radiotherapy, and sexual status and side effects related to dilation. Review found that vaginal dilation with dilator was routinely recommended to cervical cancer patients following completion of radiotherapy. Resumption of sexual intercourse and sexual counselling was provided to married patients for prevention of vaginal stenosis and preserving sexual functions. Documentation on the content of sexual counselling and the time spent on counselling was found absent. This review of case files found vaginal dilation with dilator post pelvic radiotherapy is effective in preventing vaginal stenosis and sexual intercourse cannot be used as a sole medium of dilation. Dilation with dilator improved vaginal length from 8.02 cm+ 2.9 to 9.96+ 2.89cm with the p value <0.001. ords.

Advantages and guidelines for cooking with steam are described. Transferring heat energy through steam is the most efficient way to cook and can occur through conduction, convection, or radiation. Steam has 6 times the heat energy found in boiling water at the same temperature. Pure steam is dry and cooks foods quickly, retaining nutrients. Air must be completely excluded from steamers or pressure cookers for efficient performance. Several makes of steamers are described (e.g., forced convection steam cookers and counter units). Variables that affect cooking time in steam are: density, shape, and thickness of foods, food temperature, and doneness desired. All restaurant operations should consider having a steamer.

122. Optimized short text embedding for bilingual similarity using Probase and BabelNet

Most existing methodologies for text classification represent text as vectors of words, to be specific "bag-of-words." This content portrayal results in a high dimensionality of feature space and much of the time experiences surface jumbling. When it comes to short texts, these become even more serious because of their shortness and sparsity and with the bilingual similarity of text it gets more difficult. This paper proposes an approach to deal with both sparsity and computational complexity of bilingual similarity of short text. English short text is mapped with Probase and Hindi short text is mapped with BabelNet a knowledge base with coverage of words and concepts for 248 languages. A semantic network is created to manipulate the word to word and concept to concept correlation. Unlike the earlier approaches of embedding, words and concepts from both English and Hindi short texts are treated separately to yield word embedding (Word2Vec) and concept embedding (Concept2Vec) respectively. The similarity between bilingual short texts is computed using the skip-gram based word embedding and concept embedding. When evaluated with Pilot and STSS 131 short text benchmark datasets, the proposed optimized bilingual short text embedding gives better similarity score

129. A parallel patient treatment algorithm and it's application in hospital queuing recommendation

A patient queue management system to minimize patient wait time, delays and patient overcrowding is one of the major challenges faced by hospitals. Redundant and bothersome waits for long periods result in substantial human resource and time wastage and increase the frustration endured by patients. Therefore, we recommend a Patient Treatment Time Prediction (PTTP) algorithm to predict the waiting time for each treatment task for a patient. Based on the predicted waiting time, a Hospital Queuing-Recommendation (HQR) system is developed. HQR calculates and predicts an efficient and suitable treatment plan recommended for the patient.

132. Review on underwater image enhancement using multiscale fusion

We introduce an effective technique to enhance the images captured underwater and degraded due to the medium scattering and absorption. Our method is a single image approach that does not require specialized hardware or knowledge about the underwater conditions or the scene structure. It builds on the blending of two images that are directly derived from a color compensated and white balanced version of the original degraded image. The two images to fusion, as well as their associated weight maps, are defined to promote the transfer of edges and color contrast to the output image. To avoid that the sharp weight map transitions create artifacts in the low-frequency components of the reconstructed image, we also adopt a multiscale fusion strategy. Our extensive qualitative and quantitative evaluation reveals that our enhanced images and videos are characterized by better exposedness of the dark regions, improved global contrast, and edges sharpness. Our validation also proves that our algorithm is reasonably independent of the camera settings, and improves the accuracy of several image processing applications, such as image segmentation and keypoint matching.

133. Experimental study on the influence of internal curing on concrete properties using pre-soaked lightweight aggregates and Super Absorbent Polymer

ACI defines Internal Curing (IC) as a process by which the hydration of cement continues because of the availability of internal water that is not part of the mixing water. The introduction of SAP as a new additive for the production of concrete materials presents a number of new possibilities in respect of water control, i.e., the purposeful water absorption and/or water release in either fresh or hardened concrete. Proper curing of concrete structures is important to ensure they meet their intended performance and durability requirements. In conventional construction, this is achieved through external curing, applied after mixing, placing and finishing. Internal curing (IC) is a very promising technique that can provide additional moisture in concrete for more effective hydration of the cement and reduced self-desiccation. Internal curing implies the introduction of a curing agent into concrete that will provide this additional moisture. Concrete expands and contracts because of change in temperature, freezing and thawing cycle and environmental conditions. During early age hardening of concrete exhibits few cracks due to its chemical nature. The main reason for crack development in paste fraction is the loss of water due to chemical reaction and environment. The crack development due to aggregate was mainly on its chemical composition and physical properties. The crack due to plastic shrinkage could be reduced by adopting an internal curing method. This internal curing agent supply absorbed water to concrete to minimize the crack effect due to plastic shrinkage. Internal curing does not replace conventional surface curing but works with it to make concrete more robust. Internal curing can also help compensate for less than ideal weather conditions and poor conventional curing that is often seen in the real world. In this study, M25 Concrete was used to cast cubes beams and cylinders with the mix design of 1:1.78:2.92 replacing sand with presoaked vermiculite and in other mix replacing cement with SAP. The results of 28 days compressive strength, flexural strength and split tensile strength indicates a higher strength with usage of 0.35% SAP and 5% vermiculite as internal curing agents.

138. Image encryption predicated on segmented singular value decomposition using FrFT

The protection of digital information and pictures has an integral function in defense as well as biomedical image handling applications. The formula which is usually to be utilized for the protection of data gives strength from any sort of incorrect supplies to the unwanted consumer. The idea of share matrix S(k;n) m for the creation of shares has been investigated. These types of shares give strength to the security or encryption of confidential information and images. In this article, the paper illustrates the utilization of share generation idea for encryption of the digital pictures in the SVD domain. The singular value of the SVD component functions as a good choice to create the shares of the picture. To bring further improvement in the robustness, we apply the Fractional Fourier Transform (FrFT). The sequence of the FrFT (1; 2) combined with the singular vectors (that is U and V) parts of the initial/base image functions similar to keys. Most of the state-of-the-art techniques are also studied combined with the suggested technique. A variety of quantitative parameters such as for example speed, Number of Pixels Change Rate (NPCR), Unified Average Changing Intensity (UACI), entropy, correlation coefficient, key sensitivity and Mean Square Error (MSE) has been completely researched to examine the overall performance of the suggested technique.We find our suggested technique works more effectively or perhaps comparable sufficiently.

140. Social hierarchies and technological practices: The making of documentary films in India

Abstract: This article is premised on a critique of the view that technological capacities are independent of social hierarchies and are increasingly becoming participatory, allowing the entry of individuals from different levels of social strata. In response to the work Jacques Ellul and Francois Hetman, this paper argues that knowledge of technology, while indeed providing a momentary space for decision-making, does not necessarily restructure social hierarchies. Through case studies presented from the world of Indian documentary filmmaking, this paper puts forth the view that technology operators, despite being technologically advanced, do not break into the filmmaking hierarchical order. This remains true even where technical knowledge rests most with those in the lowest rungs of the filmmaking ladder. Instead, technological knowledge provides the scope for other kinds of relationships to develop, such as those of ‘trusting the technician’ or ‘admiration for the technician’s work’. This admiration is especially acquired through techniques of improvisation that the technological operator becomes proficient in. Furthermore, what continues to define documentary filmmaking hierarchy is conceptualization capacities of the practitioners, which are influenced by a similarity in socio-cultural backgrounds and film school training accessible to only a limited few.

141. Experimental analysis on Expanded Polystyrene Shortcreting panel

Affordable quality housing is vital in developing countries to meet their growing population. Development of a new cost-effective system is crucial to fulfilling these demands. In view of this, a study is carried out to develop Expanded polystyrene (EPS), as a new affordable building system. Experimental investigation and finite element analysis to study the structural behavior of the EPS panel under axial load are undertaken. The panel consists of lightweight Structural panel consisting of an insulated polystyrene core sandwiched between two engineered layers of Galvanized Steel welded wire fabric mesh. To complete the panel from the process a Galvanised steel wire truss is pierced completely through the polystyrene core and welded to each of the outer layer sheets of Galvanized steel welded wire fabric mesh. The panels are loaded with axial load until failure. The ultimate load carrying capacity, load-lateral deflection profile, strain distributions, and the failure mode are recorded. Partial composite behaviors are observed in all specimens when the cracking load is achieved. Finite element analysis is also carried out to study the effect of slenderness ratio and shear connectors affect the strength and behavior of the panels. An empirical equation to predict the maximum load which is the major parameters that carrying capacity of the panels is proposed. The Eps panel system proposed in this research is able to achieve the intended strength for use in low rise building. The panel building system has tremendous flexibility–it can be used in place of wood or metal-framed walls, masonry block walls or precast panels. It is an excellent structural system that can be used in floors, ceilings, and roofs. The panel building system saves construction time while providing greater structural integrity. As an eco-friendly v alternative building system, panel components are manufactured with all recycled plastics and steel – no forest products are used. The panel building system is safe and friendly to humans and wildlife. Also by the use of expanded polystyrene, we can standardize the climatic conditions inside the building. The cost of the construction is also reducing by the usage of expanded polystyrene wall panels in the construction of building.

143. Experimental investigation of sisal fibre reinforced concrete with partial replacement of cement by ground granulated blast furnace slag

The study focuses on the compressive strength, split tensile strength, flexural strength performance of the sisal fibre concrete containing a different percentage of slag as a partial replacement of OPC. The cement in concrete is replaced accordingly with the percentage of 10%, 20% and 30% by weight of slag. And 1% of sisal fibre is added to the concrete. Concrete cubes are tested at the age of 7,14 and 28 days of curing. Finally, the strong performance of slag used fibre reinforced concrete is compared with the performance of conventional concrete. From the experimental investigations, it has been observed that the optimum replacement of Ground Granulated Blast Furnace Slag powder to cement is 20% for M 30 grade. Addition of sisal fibre in the concrete mix significantly influenced the cracking behavior and ultimate strength of beams. Addition of 1% sisal fibre in the RC beams increases both the flexural first cracking strength and flexural toughness of the SFRC beams and leads to an appreciable increase in their ductility and stiffness compared to those conventional RC beams without the addition of sisal fibre.

146. Experimental investigation of earthquake resisting stadium designed with damper

The Structures such as buildings, bridges, and towers are prone to collapse when natural phenomena like earthquake occurred. Therefore, many design codes are reviewed and new technologies are introduced to resist earthquake energy especially on building to avoid collapse. The tuned mass damper and hydraulic dampers etc. are one of the earthquake reduction products introduced on structures to minimize the earthquake effect. This study aims to analyze the effectiveness of tuned mass damper by experimental works and finite element modeling. The comparisons are made between these two models under harmonic excitation. Based on the result, it is proven that installing tuned mass damper will reduce the dynamic response of the frame but only in several input frequencies. At the highest input frequency applied, the tuned mass damper failed to reduce the responses. In conclusion, in order to use a proper design of damper, a detailed analysis must be carried out to have sufficient design based on the location of the structures with specific ground accelerations.

148. An in-vivo study to evaluate the clinical efficacy of different gingival retraction systems

Background: Meticulous impression of the prepared teeth is of extreme importance for successful fixed prosthetic restorations. Gingival retraction allows access to finish lines and to create space for the impression material to record prepared and unprepared tooth structure. Dentists should carefully consider the various materials and methods of gingival retraction in light of the potential risks involved. Aim: The aim of this study was to assess and compare the amount of displacement in terms of lateral displacement by the Expasyl and Magic FoamCord retraction systems. Materials and methods: Study was conducted on the unprepared right and left maxillary central incisors for 10 subjects. Subjects were selected based on certain selection criteria. The pre-displacement and post-displacement impressions were made in a custom tray with monophase addition silicone material using a single mix-one step impression technique. Final cast of maxillary central incisors was sectioned longitudinally into two equal halves. The sectioned halves were oriented on mounting jig using a spirit level and assessed under a traveling microscope. The measurements were made from the crest of the gingival margin to the mid-buccal surface of the tooth. The amount of gingival displacement in each group was calculated by subtracting the pre- displacement values from post-displacement values. From the observations obtained statistical analysis was performed using paired 't' and unpaired 't' test. Results: Group I produced more amount of lateral displacement than Group II. However, the amount of gingival displacement between Group I and Group II showed a statistically significant difference. Conclusion: Expasyl pastes retraction system showed more lateral displacement of gingiva compared to Magic Foam Cord system.

150. Intelligent vehicle accident detection and ambulance rescue system

The accident is the major fatalities in the world. Where the victims die with lack of emergency personnel or remain unnoticed over the night. Road accident is a collision between any vehicles or it can be with any pedestrian, animal and any obstacle placed on or off the road. The mortality rate of the victim depends on the time taken to reach the accident location and to reach the hospital by ambulance. As time increases the mortality rate of the victim also increases. In this paper, we introduce system that automatically detects the accident occurrences and notifies the recorded ambulance through GSM and GPS module, and the time delay is minimized by introducing RF module at the traffic signals. Whenever an accident occurs the vibration sensor senses the accident occurrence automatically makes microcontroller to retrieve the location of the accident through GPS and GSM will notify the recorded ambulance driver with messaging which consist of longitude and latitude coordinates of the location. If the current ambulance which received the message is not available then the message is sent to the next ambulance number, so that immediate help can be provided. This system also controls the traffic signals in the path of an ambulance by providing RF communication between the ambulance and traffic section. The methods used in the paper are fully automated which finds the accident spot, controls the traffic lights, helps to reach the hospital as soon as possible.

151. Intelligent pothole detection via deep learning using Raspberry-Pi microcontroller

Bad road conditions are public trouble, causing passenger discomfort, damage to vehicles, and accidents. In India, 9300 deaths and over 25000 injured in 3 years due to potholes according to Ministry of road transport and Highways. Often we complain about bad roads, we have no proper way to detect or report them at scale. To address this issue, we have developed a system to detect potholes and assess road conditions on the go. Our solution is a raspberry pi that captures data on a car’s movement from gyroscope and accelerometer sensors in the Sense Hat sensor. To assess roads using this sensor data, we trained SVM model and Multi layer Perceptron Neural Network to classify road conditions with 97% accuracy. As the user drives, the models use the accelerometer and gyroscope sensor data to classify whether or not pothole is present. Then, the classification results are given to the public to drive by looking at the Potholes in map. Our system will empower civic officials to identify and repair damaged roads which inconvenience passengers and cause accidents

152. Tackling aquaphobia using Virtual Reality

Aqua phobia is a disease caused due to many cases such as rabies, inheritance or previous false experiences with respect to water. In some cases, the cause of this disease is eradicated, but the disease itself is a phobia therefore, it remains in the mind. Such cases are taken to a psychologist or a psychiatrist, which causes individuals lot amount of charges. Therefore, a costeffective solution is needed for this critical issue. Virtual Reality creates an environment for any individual which is totally different form the current reality. This might prove to be a solution for the issue of Aqua phobia. Virtual Reality has the ability to render environments where an Aqua phobic individual can experience the fearsome situations visually. The proposed plan focuses on simulating different environments (levels) wherein fearsome environments of different intensity would be provided to the Aqua phobic people. While experiencing these environments visually, the individual would be in coordination with a pulse-rate sensor. This sensor, integrating with the application would provide a percentage on removal of Aqua phobia for that respective level. If the percentage amount crosses certain percentage, then the individual would be able to move on to the next level. This project aims on reducing effect of Aqua phobia, as the related diseases are removed but the phobias which are caused due to the diseases retain. In future, the project aims to tackle Claustrophobia and Arachnophobia as well.

153. Factors controlling scheduling of construction projects

The occurrence of a delay in the construction project is a common problem in civil engineering. There is an increase in the number of construction projects experiencing extensive delays leading to exceeding the initial time and cost budget. The delay is a situation where the actual progress of a construction project is slower than the planned schedule. This paper presents a major construction delay caused by rank order retrieved from past literature by analyzing several negative effects. Even though over the years, existing delay analysis techniques (DATs) for aiding this decision-making have been helpful but have not succeeded in curbing the high incidence of disputes associated with delay claims resolutions and a major source of the disputes lies with the limitations and capabilities of the techniques in their practical use. Developing a good knowledge of these aspects of the techniques is of paramount importance in understanding the real problematic issues involved and their improvement needs. So analyzing all the data’s over a decade this paper seeks to develop such knowledge and understanding. Thus this paper presents a major construction delay caused by rank order retrieved from past literature. It is followed by collecting a list of factors that cause the delay in a construction project. The collected factors are analyzed categorized into groups with ranking. A scheduling model of the apartment building is developed using MS-Project. To develop delay factors influencing in the model. As a result, the comparison between actual schedule progress and factors influencing the schedule are determined. From the study, the unforced delay is identified, so that that delay can be considered in the developing of any future construction scheduling work.

157. Flexural retrofitting of geopolymer RC beam with ferrocement laminates

The present paper deals with the experimental investigation carried out to study the effect of Ferrocement laminates on the strengthening of Geopolymer reinforced concrete rectangular beams. Various rehabilitation techniques have been proposed yet but among these techniques, external strengthening provides a practical and cost-effective solution when compared to other repair methods. Reinforced concrete components are formed to exhibit distress and get deteoriated due to various factors and hence need strengthening. Ferro cement is most commonly used as retrofitting material due to their easy availability durability and their property of being cast to any shape without needing significant formwork. In this investigation, we examined the performance of R.C. beam strengthened by Ferro cement, 15 beams of the rectangular cross-section were cast using m20 grade concrete and were tested for collapse load. Further beams were stressed up to 70%, 80% &90% respectively. The investigation shows that up to 80% of the pre-damaged beams can be strengthened using Ferro cement. The need for the construction industry to look for a reliable and cheaper strengthening component for reinforced concrete structure has led to the usage of Ferrocement which proves to be a promising solution. In this paper, reinforced concrete beams strengthened with Ferrocement laminates attached to the soffit of the beams and control beam are observed through experimental study. Experimental results show that the strengthened beams and control beam are observed through experimental study. Experimental results show that the strengthened beams have increased ultimate moment capacity and also, it shows better serviceability performances in terms crack control and deflection.

158. Bio-metric authentication using non-expanded inverted share image visual cryptography

A biometric authentication system operates by acquiring raw biometric data from a subject e.g., fingerprint and iris images. This original raw data is stored in the central database. Preserving the privacy of this digital biometric data has become very important. Visual cryptography can be applied to securing this information. The proposed work preserves the privacy fingerprint and iris-based authentication using Inverted Share image Visual Cryptography (ISVC). In ISVC, we invert one share image and stack it with another shared image to obtain the extra confidential data that can be used for authentication. In traditional visual cryptography, the size of the recovered image is expanded because of pixel expansion during encryption. This also leads to recovered image distortion. Therefore, the proposed scheme combines a non-expanded scheme with the extra ability to hide biometric data, such as fingerprint and iris image, in some cover image to maintain privacy. This will also solve the pixel expansion as seen in traditional visual cryptography

159. Active harmonic filtering using current-controlled, grid-connected DG units with closed-loop power control

Renewable energy sources such as solar, wind are becoming more popular to generate power. These renewable energy based power generation systems generate DC power output. An inverter is needed to convert DC power from renewable energy sources into AC power. These renewable energy sources are connected to the grid through interfacing converters which supply active and reactive powers to the main grid. Inverters are either be connected in standalone or in grid connected mode. In the case of grid-connected mode, the output voltage and frequency of inverter should be same as grid voltage and frequency. If loads connected to the grid are non-linear in nature, then it can introduce power quality problems such as harmonic distortions in grid voltage.

161. Effect of waste polythene use in different modifier bitumen in flexible pavement

The use of waste polythene is increasing week by week. The waste polythene pollutes the environment, especially where there is no garbage collection and disposal system. A large amount of plastic collected from the tourist trekking regions and housing area are discarded or burned which releases harmful gases into the environment. The waste polythene collected from domestic and industrial sectors can be used in the production of plastics coated aggregate. Waste polythene, mainly used for packing and carrying any food. It’s made up of Polyethylene, Polypropylene, and polystyrene. Their softening point varies between 110 degree Celsius to 140 degree Celsius and if the wastes polythene is heated within this temperature range then they do not produce any toxic gases but the softened waste polythene have tendency to form a film like structure over the aggregate, when it is sprayed over the hot aggregate at 160 degree Celsius to 170 degree Celsius. The Plastics Coated Aggregates (PCA) is a better raw material for the construction of flexible pavement. PCA was mixed with hot bitumen of different types and the mixes were used for road construction.

162. An experimental investigation on high strength concrete using steel fibre

The Steel fibers to plain concrete is intended both to improve the material's ductility and that of structure in which Concrete is the most widely used structural material in the world with an annual production of over seven billion tons. For a variety of reasons, much of this concrete is crack. The reason for concrete to suffer cracking may be attributed to structural, environmental or economic factors, but most of the cracks are formed due to the inherent weakness of the material to resist tensile forces. It is now well established that steel fibre offers a solution to the problem of cracking by making concrete tougher and more ductile. It has also been proved by extensive research and field trials carried out over the past three decades, that steel fibres to conventional plain concrete members at the time of mixing/production imparts improvements to several properties of concrete, particularly those related to strength, performance, and durability. The concrete so produced is brittle in character and steel fibers can lengthen the time elapsed before cracking. Higher strength is one of the features of which provides significant structural advantages. This Thesis presents the experimental investigations carried out to study the effect of steel fibers varying in weight fractions of 0%,0.75% on high strength concrete using the mix design of M60 concrete.

In today’s world, it is verifiable that social media plays an essential job in affecting our way of life, our economy and our general perspective of the world. Social media is a new forum that conveys individuals to exchange idea, connect with, relate to, and mobilize for a cause, seek advice, and offer guidance. Most research on social network mining centers around finding the knowledge behind the information for enhancing people life. While multimedia social networks (MSNs) apparently grow their users' ability in expanding social contacts, they may really diminish the face-to-face interpersonal connections in reality. In this way, the association between users and MSN are becoming more progressively complete and convoluted. This proposed system principally expanded and enhanced the circumstance investigation system for the particular social area and further proposed a novel algorithm for users intention serialization analysis dependent on exemplary Generalized Sequential Pattern (GSP). We utilized the enormous volume of user behavior records to investigate the continuous sequence mode that is important to predict user intention. The experiments chose two general sorts of goals: playing and sharing of interactive media, which are the most widely recognized in MSN, based on the intention serialization algorithm under various least threshold limit (Min Support).

167. Blockchain for cloud backup system

Blockchain Technology is an emerging technology in the software world. In order to understand the applications of the blockchain, it is necessary to understand how blockchain works. Blockchain was first introduced by Satoshi Nakamoto in 2008, which serve a Peer-to-Peer ledger for registering cryptocurrency bitcoin transactions. The blockchain is a list of records stored in the form of a chain. A blockchain is a decentralized distributed ledger which means a number of records are stored in a block and the block is added to the chain. Each block consists of a number of transactions for each transaction there will be a unique hash value, all hash values of the number of the transaction are combined and made a single hash value of the block and this follows Merkle root hash method. The invention of blockchain in cryptocurrency bitcoin solved the issue of double spending. The invention of blockchain in data backup can decrease the security complexity and duplication of the data. Rather than storing the data in one single hub that is the centralized system we can store the data in the blockchain which is a decentralized distributed ledger. In this decentralized system, the file is divided into a number of chunks stored into the blockchain which makes it difficult for data hacking and data tampering. In a centralized system if a server goes down then data is lost forever and in centralized system records can easily be altered because it does not have a backup to verify the records but in the blockchain, every peer in the network has the copy of the records and it is difficult to tamper the records. The files can be divided by a technology called Reed-Soloman erasure coding, generally used in CDs and DVDs. Reed-Soloman erasure coding allows dividing files in a redundant manner, where any 1 of 3 segments can fully recover a user's file.

173. Investigation on permeability characteristics of pervious concrete

Abstract: Concrete is widely used structural material consisting essentially of a binder and a mineral filler. Concrete has been the leading material since it was used and is bound to maintain its significant role in the upcoming future due to its durability, adaptability to any shape and size and many other applications. It is a composite material produced by mixing cement, inert matrix of sand and gravel or crushed stone. Pervious concrete is a type of concrete that has a low water-cement ratio and contains none or very little amount of sand. In the present paper the behavior of pervious concrete has been studied experimentally to reduce urban heat island effect and sustainable solution. Various specimens were prepared with Cement/Aggregate (C/A) ratio of 1:3 and 1:5 by adding super plasticizers (0.2% & 0.3%) and varying size of aggregates. The water-cement ratio was kept constant 0.30. Different properties of pervious concrete e.g. compressive strength, split tensile strength, rebound hammer test at 28 days and Infiltration rate test for C/A ratio of 1:3 and 1:5 have been studied experimentally. Experimental results showed that strength of pervious concrete decreased with the increase in C/A ratio and also the permeability is decreasing with the increase in strength i.e., with the decrease in C/A ratio.

174. Data governance in smart factory: Effective metadata management

Most of the enterprises recognized the importance of Data governance and started data governance programs either at the Enterprise at the individual Business units level. Data governance councils at various levels in an enterprise define and enforce data quality and security, using policies, standards, and Procedures. The success of Data governance program is heavily relying on people or team who is governing the data governance council. However, Data governance is best implemented by leveraging people, process, and Technology. In the past, subject matter experts of individual data domains maintained the metadata, which is a critical component of data governance. Efficient and automated metadata management, which can be established today by leveraging technology and process not just SMEs, has the potential to mitigate the risk of people dependency. Smart factories, which are heavily automated, generates data at a scale and speed which were never seen before by manufacturing industry, and face the crisis to maintain the data quality, and to make the data available for analytics for any further use. Data generated by smart factories are diverse and are mostly stored in distributed systems, which further increases the complexity of data governance through metadata management. Efficient metadata management, mostly automated, can help smart factories to achieve Data governance goals, and help to provide data as a service. This paper discusses the shortcomings of Hybrid data governance model – acknowledged as the better model for data governance by industry – and proposes a system architecture which has all the benefits of the hybrid model in addition to improvements that are necessary for a smart factory.

175. Design and development of planetary gearbox for variable performance

In the commercial cars, the generally conventional gearbox is used, but in an all-terrain vehicle and military combat vehicle automatic transmission is used, where continuous variable transmission (CVT) is coupled with the epicyclic gearbox or generally recognized by the planetary gearbox. In this type of gearbox, we are establishing a gear train with high torque in a compact and light package. Here we are designing single stage planetary gearbox with co-axial alignment. Epicyclic gearing arrangements are comprised of four different elements that produce a wide range of speed ratios in a compact layout. These elements are: (1) Sun gear, an externally toothed ring gear co-axial with the gear train; (2) Annulus, an internally toothed ring gear co-axial with the gear train; (3) Planets, externally toothed gears which mesh with the sun and annulus; and (4) Planet Carrier, a support structure for the planets, co-axial with the train. The name "epicyclic" is derived from the curve traced by a point on the circumference of a circle as it rolls on the circumference of a second fixed circle.

187. Urban spaces and health inequity

In the recent urban era, health inequity is a major challenge faced by planners and policy makers. With the increasing trend of people moving to urban zones and areas in the search of better stature of life and job opportunities, increased pressure and load on the already fragile urban infrastructure is visible resulting in social, cultural and economic inequities. Whereas health inequities are a major consequence of socio-cultural and economic inequalities in our society resulting in poor health services and amenities to the economically week, racial, ethnic and religious minorities and migrants. This paper mainly focuses on the inclusion of the planned urban spaces with the heath inequity problems such that the socially excluded and weaker section of the society thrive harmoniously. We suggest that an integrated approach in defining and developing urban spaces and areas with proper actions to deal with health inequity can magnify other steps and policies to deal with the health inequity present in our society and which is the need of the 21st century. We close with the suggestions to improve research and development in the field of environmental conditions, changing patterns in the urban environment and health inequity in the modern-day society to cope up with the problem of security that must be available to all. These practices may include urban slum upgradation and rejuvenation, participatory and integrated public approach, epidemic control and urban ecosystem services of health. We conclude that if the national and international communities and agencies are serious about the SDGs, stronger efforts and actions should be taken to improve the urban spaces, living conditions, socio-economic conditions which can promote health equity to all.

188. Analysis of intersection Dharmaraj Chowk

Study of intersection is very important to control traffic flow, factors contributing to traffic accidents are numerous and they interact complexly. The occurrence of traffic conflict is determined. This study proposes methods of investigation and analyzing data. Detailed accident analysis shows that intersection scenarios are a serious focal point for accidents in urban areas. Therefore such an analysis is necessary to be done. There exist a lot of different intersection types with different levels of complexity. Therefore, the relevant scenarios were chosen out of the accident analysis to focus only on the most dangerous scenarios. Pedestrian road crossings have become a major issue in road traffic flow, especially in urban areas where there is no control for pedestrian road crossings. Pedestrian road crossing behavior is a serious threat to pedestrians at uncontrolled midblock crossing locations in the mixed traffic conditions. Due to an increase in motor vehicle growth, there is an increase in the regulation of motor vehicles only and the regulation of pedestrian is completely neglected. This increases the uncontrolled road crossing behavior of the pedestrian. The main motivation of this study is to investigate the errors in the design of intersection so as per our interest we choose ‘Dharmaraj chowk’ Akurdi. A number of accidents are increasing day by day, during the decade 2001 to 2011, the number of road accidents in the country is increased at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 2.1 percent. Similarly, the number of road accident fatalities and the number of persons injured in road accidents in the country between 2001and 2011 increased by 5.8 percent and 2.4 percent, respectively. As a result of concerted and coordinated road safety efforts, there has been a decline of the order 3.1 percent and 0.4 percent in the number of persons injured and the number of road accidents, respectively, in 2011, compared to 2010. However, the number of fatalities increased by 5.9 per cent in 2011.

Every college, university, school conduct exams and most important part of exams are the results. In order to get these results, the exam papers have to be evaluated one by one manually. This process of evaluating the exam papers is time consuming and requires more manpower. To overcome this solution, we have come up with a thought that removes the manual evaluation process. Our project focuses on developing a system that evaluates an answer script against a pre-uploaded marking scheme. Initially, a model is trained with a huge corpus (text data) and this model is used for further comparison of answer sheets with marking scheme. For evaluation, the marking scheme is processed and created a bag of words. In the same way, even answer sheets are processed and created a bag of words. Now these 2 values are compared using the LSI model and marks are assigned to the answers according to the comparison percentage obtained.

193. A comparative study on WLB of married female Government and Private School teachers of Puducherry

Balancing work and life is very difficult for any women in any profession. When it comes to the teaching profession, it is more complicated to have a better balance between both life and work. A good teacher is an epitome in pupil’s learning and developing good habits. Private school teacher is more answerable to the management where they are working as well as parents pertaining to pupil’s education and habits. They are also responsible for nonacademic activities too to be done in the school. Besides, Government teachers are not only responsible for pupil’s educational development, but they may be assigned additional duties like election duty, survey, etc. It makes known that it is really a very complicated working environment for the teachers in both sectors. In this context, this paper attempts to study the Work-Life Balance (WLB) between married female government and private school teachers in Puducherry with a focus on personal life satisfaction and support from family. In order to carry out the study, 55 samples were chosen using simple random sampling technique. Statistical tools such as percentage analysis and t-test were used.

194. Impact of climate on construction industry

Buildings are designed for a specific climate yet they often have a lifetime of 100 years. This effect is compounded by the fact that much of the climatic data currently used for design purposes is some 30 years old. This paper investigates the impact that climate change over the last two decades may have on the design and performance of buildings by examining the specific impact that changes in temperature and solar radiation have had on one particular design variable, energy use. Impact of climate change on the building materials can lead to the loss of strength, color. The results indicate that the temperature and solar radiation in India have changed significantly in the last 15 years and that the climatic data currently being used for energy design calculations leads to inaccuracies in predictions of energy use. It is concluded that the climatic data used in these calculations should be urgently reviewed as it may be leading designers to adopt solutions which will be inappropriate for future use.

198. Impact of growth medium on siderophore production by Vibrio campbellii: An experimental approach using universal CAS assay

The growth medium is the sole source of nourishment for the bacteria cultured under laboratory conditions. This implies that the growth medium could largely influence the quality and quantity of secondary metabolites produced by the bacterium. Secondary metabolites are the weapons used by bacteria for survival in competitive ecosystems. In this regard, Siderophores are among the vital secondary metabolites of marine bacteria which help them in sourcing the minimal iron essential for their growth and virulence from the marine environment. Among the 11 different growth media evaluated for their impact on Siderophore production by the emerging marine pathogen Vibrio campbellii, MM9 native (minimal salt medium) was found to yield the maximum siderophore units (95.35%). The key factors influencing the growth of V. campbellii were found to be glucose and casamino acid. The determinant factors influencing Siderophore production were found to be glucose and iron-depleted composition of MM9 native medium.

201. Smart fire detection system for building using image processing

Fire detection is the main objective of this project besides surveillance. The aim of the project is too early detection of fire apart from preventive measures to reduce the losses due to fire. The project mainly is based on image processing and Controllers serial communication. In this project, at the user end, the fire images will be feeder in the form of video frames. These images will be further processed by using the software, MATLAB. The proposed system uses RGB and CMY color space. The advantage of using CMY color space is that it can separate the luminance from the chrominance more effectively than RGB color space. Along with this smoke, motion, area detection is also performed using its color characteristics. The proposed system consists of hardware such as Controller, Camera, LED, and Buzzer. There is a camera for surveillance. This camera will give a real-time video output to the user on the laptop or computer via a small GUI-graphic user interface which is to be built in MATLAB. Thus the fire will be detected using this model. In this project, we include some condition regarding fire i.e. small, medium, and high fire with or without the person. If the fire is without person then automatic message sends to fire brigades. And if the fire is med and high with human means any person surrounded by fire or trapped in a fire then automatically message send to fire brigades and Ambulance using Wi-Fi modules.

202. Alternative approach to women safety using IoT

The raising questions on the security of women and children in our country is an obstacle that we need to overcome towards a safer India for its citizens. In such scenarios, women and children feel very helpless. In reference to the unfortunate set of events which opened the eyes of the nation towards the lack an immediate need for the safety of women in the country, there have been multiple efforts to implement different techniques to protect and thereby, assist the victims in such situations. Hence, there must be a system which can protect them with the least amount of complexity and involvement of the individual. The following project aims at improving the existing system by implementing automatic responses instead of the conventional manual method as, in such situations, the victim hardly has any time to provide a manual pre-designed operation. The device requires the following elements; Arduino UNO, GSM, Heart Beat Sensor, Temperature and Humidity sensor along with IOT. In critical situations, the victims have an increased heart rate along with an abrupt increase in body temperature and humidity (body sweat). Hence, the sensors can be used to monitor the following factors until it breaches a predefined value. Upon breaking the set limits, the GSM module will send a pre-defined message to the police and/or family member along with the GPS location which can be coupled with third-party apps like Google Maps. However, for improved functionality, the criteria for emergency contact can be a complex combination of body temperature, humidity and heart beat of the user. Such method is very helpful for women and children as the device does not require manual operation.

215. Accident detection, avoidance and vehicle safety using IoT and vehicular network

The increase in the population of cities and the number of vehicles leads to increase in congestion on roads and accidents. The lack of quick medical service on road accidents is the major cause of death. In such situation, an automatic accident detection can help to save the loss of life. Due to increase in number of cars there is also an increase in number of accidents on the roads. In this paper, we have designed a proto type for automatic accident detection and Avoidance system using IOT and Vehicle Area Network. The system is able to avoid accident using distance measuring sensors and also detect accidents if they occur using sensors. In case of an accident the location is sent to the hospitals and the nearby vehicle using VANET. The Avoidance sensor will first try to avoid the accident by slowing down the vehicle whenever a nearby obstacle is detected, every if after that an accident is occurred the shock sensors will detect it. The Vehicle will be connected to each other through a server and will communicate with each other, after an accident the hospitals present in that particular Area and the cars present in that area will be informed with the location acquired from GPS. There will also be an alcohol sensor that will detect if the driver has consumed alcohol and lock the car if detected.

This is particularly after it developed that these money related organizations that apply the Islamic financial model performed better amid the ongoing worldwide money related emergency in 2008 when contrasted with their partners that utilize the ordinary banking rehearses. Islamic banking is a financial framework that works as per Sharia'h laws, which deny charging or getting premiums or putting resources into items and subordinates that are restricted in Islam. Rather, the laws energize benefit and misfortune sharing as opposed to the exchange of dangers. The banks give various money related items in various modes that look like numerous items in customary banking. The Islamic banks did moderately well in contrast with their regular partners amid the budgetary emergency. The exhibition could be to a great extent credited to the financial framework that debilitates showcase theory and pointless dangers while supporting for straightforward money related exchanges dependent on common additions from genuine financial exercises. Other than its clear flexibility amid the worldwide money related emergency, the Islamic financial model has been related with the positive financial development saw in the economies of Malaysia and Joined Arabs Emirates in the previous three decades. There is a need for budgetary foundations, business establishments, administrative experts and buyers to investigate explicit methodologies that would establish attractive highlights for steady and compelling money related framework. The current look into tried to follow the improvement and method of reasoning of the Islamic Banking model just as distinguish the most critical and remarkable qualities that have encouraged the strength of the Islamic Banking area to monetary stuns amid the ongoing worldwide subsidence. Albeit Islamic banks performed altogether better in the worldwide budgetary emergency, they were later fundamentally influenced by the despondency that hit the genuine economy for some nations.

221. Digitalized irrigation monitoring system using IoT

Irrigation is the application of supplying of constrained amounts of water to plants based on their needs at regular intervals of time. Irrigation helps to cultivate agricultural crops, maintain landscapes and check disturbed soils in dry areas and during times of less than average rainfall. Conventional methods that are used for irrigation, such as overhead sprinkler and flood type are not the most efficient. They result in a huge wastage of water and can also promote diseases such as fungus formation due to the high moisture content in the soil. With the help of an automated system, we can conserve water and also the viability of the farm. The availability of fresh water for the agriculture sector is decreasing as the day passes due to increasing in population, industrialization, and short rainfall. It has become a necessity to use modern irrigation technologies to help overcome these shortcomings. In automated system water availability to crop is monitored through sensors and as per its vital needs, watering is done through the controlled irrigation. The main focus remains on parameters such as temperature and soil moisture. This automated system called Digitalized Irrigation Monitoring System using IOT addresses all the vulnerable aspects of the traditional methods of irrigation and agriculture. This system is based on an application-controlled monitoring system. The main objective of this project is to control the water supply and monitor soil parameters through a smartphone. The system is developed using Arduino as the main processor of the system, with the help of rain sensor, soil sensor, temperature sensor etc.

229. Model studies of four bent pile with respect to different density loose, medium and dense of cohesionless soil

All engineered construction resting on the earth must be carried by some kind of interfacing element called a foundation. The foundation is the part of an engineered system that transmits to, and into, the underlying soil or rock the loads supported by the foundation and its self-weight. The resulting soil stresses except at the ground surface are in addition to those presently existing in the earth mass from its self-weight. Piles are used to support the structures. Piles are frequently required because of the relative inability of shallow foundation to transmit inclined, horizontal, or uplift force and over-turning moments. Such situations are common in the design of earth retaining structures and tall structures subjected to high wind and earthquake forces. Considering the importance and necessity of pile in construction work. This thesis is based on the piles and the topic name “Model studies of four bent pile with respect to different density i.e. loose, medium and dense of cohesion less soil”. The main objective of the thesis is to determine the reduction in load carrying capacity due to bending of four bent pile and also to determine the load carrying capacity of the bent pile with respect to different density i.e. loose, medium and dense of cohesion less soil. In the present study, the carrying capacity of the pile shall be ascertained under different conditions of soil and bending. The effect of the degree of bending shall be studied by a different angle of bend. The study shall be made only in cohesion less soil under different degree of compaction.

231. Weather report on metropolitan cities in India using web scraping technique

In metropolitan cities of India, there are several climate measurement points that are owned by several different institutions such as Indian Institute of Tropical Meteorology, NCMRWF, India Meteorological Department (Pune) and many other institutes. However, obtaining the latest meteorological data in detail within a specific period has restricted the bureaucratic process to each institution. While the availability of meteorological data sets is necessary for conducting research in the field of data analysis to predict climate and analyzes for DSS that require weather patterns. On the other hand, some sites provide real-time weather data for some cities. For this, in this research, we use web scraping technology to collect meteorological data in metropolitan cities in India. Web scraping technology is a technique for retrieving the content of a web page individually. The data collected by this web scraping technique will form a database or data warehouse that can be used for further research on data mining for weather forecasting in metropolitan cities, which in the future can be developed a support application to based decision.

235. Comparative study on analysis and design of RCC and composite structure

This paper deals with the Comparative Study of the composite and concrete structure. The composite structure is more prominent over steel and concrete structure in relation to Strength, Costs, and Time Period requirements. There is no need for formwork because the steel beam is able to sustain its self-weight of steel and concrete, by itself or with the assistance of a few temporary props. This Paper also deals with the design of composite building structures with a fixed base. In this paper Seismic analysis of a multi-story residential building is made by using different construction materials like Concrete, Structural Steel and Composite of Structural Steel and Concrete. Effect of the building is studied with respect to base shear, total dead load, story drift values in both X- and Y- direction. Steel-concrete composite systems for buildings are built by connecting the steel beam to the concrete slab or profiled deck slab with the help of mechanical shear connectors so they seem like a single unit and act accordingly. In the present work, the steel-concrete composite with RCC options is chosen for the comparative study of G+21 story building which is situated in earthquake zone-III and for earthquake loading, the provisions of IS: 1893 (Part1)-2002 is considered. Here, we used ETAB Software for three-dimensional modeling and the analysis of the structure.

240. Design and analysis of low power 1-bit hybrid full adder using 130nm technology

Basically, a conventional CMOS logic circuit design approach depends upon charging the output capacitive nodes to the supply voltage Vdd or discharging it to the ground. This is one of the most used methods in VLSI circuit designs. There are various techniques to design low power circuits to reduce power consumption. The major source of power dissipation is the charging and discharging of the capacitor. Whenever a capacitor is discharged to ground, an amount of energy stored in the capacitor is mislaid. We can reduce this power dissipation by restoring this energy to the source instead of discharging to the ground. It has been observed that by charging the capacitor gradually, the energy requirement is slighter than the faster charging method. The modern VLSI techniques focus significantly on High-Speed Propagation and Low Power Consumption. In this study, I present a low power 1-bit hybrid full adder design which utilizes both static CMOS logic and Swing Restoring Pass Transistor Logic. Moreover, a comparison is made on the power consumptions of various other designs with this work. The full adders are designed in Mentor Graphics 130nm technology. Starting at 0.4V supply, the average power consumed by this Hybrid design is 2.33µW.

244. Emotion recognition from facial expression

The aim of image (photo) based emotion recognition system emotion is to detect and classify the emotion from the human face from an image. The automatic system mainly has two components i.e. extraction of facial feature and classification of facial feature. To classify the feature precisely effective feature classification methods should be applied. Many recent systems uses additional information from classification which reduces accuracy as well as increase execution time. In this system Double Local Binary Pattern (DLBP) is used for feature extraction which is a variant of Local Binary Pattern (LBP). Since DLBP has small dimension size which reduces the detection time. To handle local illumination problem Logarithmic Laplace-Domain is proposed (LoL-Domain). Finally, Convolution Neural Network (CNN) is used for an obtained feature for classification.

249. Assessment of ski-jump bucket parameters for sluice spillway of Himalayan dam by hydraulic model studies

Ski jump buckets are very popular type of energy dissipators for dam spillways. These ski jump buckets are provided where the tailwater levels downstream of the spillway are such low that stilling basins type of energy dissipator cannot be provided. The design of ski jump bucket for a spillway of a dam is very complex in nature, as it involves hydraulic variables such as discharge intensity, head over the spillway, lip angle, lip elevation, full reservoir level, tailwater level, velocity head of jet at bucket lip, bucket radius and frictional losses. Himalayan dams are mainly run- of- river schemes mainly meant for hydropower generation and where poundages are minimum and also serve dual purposes of disposing of flood and sediments. Many of Himalayan dam sluice spillways are provided with ski jump buckets as energy dissipators. Sometimes ski jump buckets are provided when the tailwater levels are higher and bucket lip is provided under submerged condition. Computing jet trajectory length and trajectory height of ski jump bucket is important as the throw distance play a decisive role in fixing downstream structures like downstream cofferdam, tailrace outfalls, diversion tunnels, etc. Also, throw height computation is important to factor in fixing the heights of divider walls and training walls of the spillway. Various empirical formulae are available in the literature for finding out the throw distance of trajectory buckets. But hydraulic model studies play a crucial role in assessing the performance of ski jump buckets. The hydraulic model is the best tool to design or modify the spillways and energy dissipators by making the model run for different discharges and gate operation schedules prior to the construction of project.

252. Experiment on soil properties made with geocell-shredded tyres reinforced sand

Soil reinforcement is one of the most popular ground improvement techniques. Availability of different material and techniques for reinforcement is one of the major reasons for the continuous increase in the application of the soil reinforcement. Rapid industrialization is full filling the need of the present time and it is also producing a huge amount of waste Under the present investigation, a detailed parametric study through a series of triaxial experiments has been carried out to develop an understanding of the behavior of geocell-shredded tyres reinforced sand under triaxial loading. The influence of various parameters pertaining to geocell- shredded tyres reinforced soil such as relative densities (i.e., 30%, 50%, 70%), confining pressures (i.e., 50kPa, 100kPa, 200kPa), types of geocells (i.e., M=4.79, 3.23), and shredded tyres content (i.e., 10%, 20%, 30%, 40%) have been studied extensively in a systematic manner. The results of the triaxial tests show that the stiffness and the load carrying capacity of the soil improve substantially with the provision of shredded tyres reinforcement in content 10% and 20% respectively while results of tyre content 30% and 40% show less stiffness and the load carrying capacity of the soil. The stiffness and load carrying capacity of the soil also improves with the provision of reinforcement of soil using geocells and also improves with the provision of reinforcement of soil using geocell-shredded tyres. When geocells are used with shredded tyres for reinforcement of soil then improved results have been seen in 10%, 20%, and 30% tyre content as compare to geocell reinforcement of soil without shredded tyres. While 40% of tyre content shows less load carrying capacity as compare to lesser contents of shredded tyres.

255. Convolutional Neural Networks

The human brain is trained in such a way that it can automatically and instantly recognize multiple faces. But when it comes to the computer, it becomes very difficult to do all the challenging tasks on the level of the human brain. The face recognition is an integral part of biometrics. In biometrics, basic traits of human are matched to the existing data and facial features are extracted and implemented through algorithms. Numerous algorithms and techniques have been developed for improving the performance of face recognition. Deep learning is making crucial advances in solving problems that have restricted the best attempts of the artificial intelligence community for many years. Among one of the deep learning, approaches are Convolutional Neural networks (CNN).CNN is a kind of artificial neural networks that employ convolution methodology to extract the features from the input data to increase the number of features. The general structure of the face recognition process is of three stages. It starts with a pre-processing stage: color space conversion and resizing of images, continues with the extraction of facial features, and afterward extracted feature set is classified. In our system, Softmax Classifier is to realize the final stage that is classification on the basis of the facial features extracted from CNN

256. Impact of fluoride in Bastar

It is well known that the excess fluoride intake is responsible for dental and skeleton fluorosis. Villages of Bastar block and bakawand block are badly affected with fluoride. The reason is that a high concentration of fluoride water used by villagers for drinking and cooking purpose where groundwater is the major source of drinking water, water with fluoride content more than 1.5ppm may cause fluorosis. In the present study randomly selected primary and middle schools of Bastar and bakawand block, where the highest percentage of dental fluorosis was seen in 7 to 14 yrs age group children and in some places crippling lower limbs also noted. Since Bastar has a dense forest, heavy rainfall occurs during the mansoon season. There are no chemical factories in the district and nearby districts. Pollution free rainwater can be stored in cisterns and reservoirs by rainwater harvesting. This water can use to dilute the fluoride concentration and water level to be maintained.

257. Virtual assistant based recommendation system

In the current commercial application, the e-commerce applications give the only recommendation of the particular tastes only when one is interested in a particular item. The recommendation is also very much related to the item the user is interested in. Though this system works well it lacks the personalized experience that the user can get when purchasing an item through an offline vendor. This can be achieved by aggregating the recommendation engine within a virtual assistant. In our proposed system the user will be getting the online e-commerce experience with a personalized buying assistance that one gets while buying through an offline retail vendor.

262. Strengthening of reinforced concrete beam using glass fiber reinforced polymer

The maintenance, rehabilitation, and upgrading of structural members are perhaps one of the most crucial problems in civil engineering applications. Moreover, a large number of structures constructed in the past using the older design codes in different parts of the world are structurally unsafe according to the new design codes. Since replacement of such deficient elements of structures incurs a huge amount of public money and time, strengthening has become the acceptable way of improving their load carrying capacity and extending their service lives. In the present study, an experimental investigation is carried out on the flexural and shear behavior of RC beams strengthened using continuous GFRP sheets are carried out. Externally reinforced concrete beams with epoxy-bonded GFRP sheets were tested to failure using a symmetrical two-point concentrated static loading system. Two sets of beams were cast for this experimental test program. In SET I three beams weak in flexure were cast, out of which one is controlled beam and other two beams were strengthened using continuous GFRP sheets in flexure. In SET II three beams weak in shear were cast, out of which one is the controlled beam and other two beams were strengthened using continuous GFRP sheets in shear. The strengthening of the beams is done with the varying configuration of GFRP sheets.

280. Study of aquatic environment of Khar Danda sea coast

The seacoast of Khar Danda 18.96°N and 72.82°E is to the western edge of Mumbai shore of Bandra Suburb at an altitude of 10m to 15m. It has a tropical climate and temperature varying from min 18°C to max 37°C. The sea line is marked by black Deccan basalt sea rocks. It receives torrential Indian Ocean monsoon rains, between June and September. The Khar-Danda fishing village in the south is the oldest area where Koli community resides to the north is the Carter road Promenade. Human activities like domestic, agricultural or industrial have an impact on water and the ecosystems. Fish farming is the important occupation and several other anthropogenic activities like cremation of dead bodies, domestic sewage, and fecal discharge has tremendously affected the ecosystem of the shore as well as the sea. About 11,494 industries are located in the city and 24,554 industries are located in suburbs, contributing as the major source of industrial pollutants. Nearly half of the Mumbai’s populations about 42% of residents are slum dwellers or homeless lacking sewage and sanitation facilities. They use coastal areas as a natural toilet which results in a huge amount of sewage released directly into the sea. A massive amount of these wastes enter the coastal water in and around Khar Danda which is under the grip of pollution. These pollutants carry soil and particles laden with carbon, nitrogen, phosphorus, and minerals. This nutrient-rich water can cause fleshy algae and phytoplankton to thrive in coastal areas; known as algal blooms, which have the potential to create hypoxic conditions by using all available oxygen. Moreover, a drastic depletion in faunal and floral diversity of the area has been observed causing destruction of mangroves as well as a decline in fishery catches. The Pomfret catch has declined from 24,000 tons in 1982 to 3,000 tons in 2006-07. Also, the Bombay duck catch has crashed from 80,000 tons in 1982 to 23,000 in 2006 (Times of India by S.S.Singh.2010). The Physio-chemical parameters like temperature, pH, Hardness, D.O, B.O.D, CO2 , Nitrate, Nitrite, fecal coliform(FC) and total coliform (TC) studied are presented as a minimum, maximum and mean values to assess the extent of water quality variation throughout the year from OCT. 2017 to SEPT. 2018.The result indicated that parameters were found to be greatly affected.

In recent years, Cloud computing has been receiving great attention from various business and research organizations as it promises to provide large storage facilities and highly managed remote Services. However, at the same time, it faces many technical challenges like privacy, reliability, security, etc. Insider threat is one of the most critical security threats for any Industry. Many researchers have been done and are being carried out in the field of cybersecurity for malicious insider attacks. Thus, the first element of such an attack is the internal user. Self-adaptive systems have shown to be able to provide an appropriate solution to treat these problems due to their efficiency and effectiveness. PERMIS role-based authorization infrastructure along with its conceptual authorization, access control, and trust models. It supports history-based decision making but PERMIS does not provide any authentication mechanism but leaves it up to the application to determine what to use. Applying SAAF to OpenStack would require considerable refactoring because OpenStack components that are responsible for dealing with authorization issues based on the Role Based Access Control (RBAC) model. OpenStack Keystone is quite different from that of PERMIS, The applicability of the proposed architecture is exemplified by means of possible responses to the insider threats scenarios. Responses are captured and incorporated into the MAPEK controller of the proposed architecture. The responses may have a different level of impact over the user, the role, or the service being accessed. It is possible that some of the responses may disrupt access to legitimate users whilst removing access to insider threats.

285. Automated human detection and tracking for surveillance applications

Automated surveillance systems are gaining importance because of their vast applications at the border while security is concerned. Various algorithms are developed and technologies are used to improve the efficiency of these surveillance systems. Efforts are being made to reduce the number of false alarms and detect any kind of suspicious activity happening in the region of suspicion within no seconds. These suspicious activities include drug smuggling, illegal immigrants crossing the borders and last but not the least, terrorist intrusion. These activities need to be detected and analyzed in order to conclude if the activity is suspicious enough to be classified as a threat. The existing systems deployed at the border are not efficient enough to detect threats and hence this paper is designed with an objective of presenting a better algorithm to make a better automated surveillance system. The sole purpose of this algorithm is to increase security at the border because safeguarding the border till date continues to remain a challenge to our country.

289. Experimental studies on concrete utilising red mud as partial replacement of cement

The Bayer Process for the production of alumina from Bauxite ore is characterized by low energy efficiency which results in the production of significant amounts of dust-like, high alkalinity bauxite residues known as Red Mud. Red mud is produced almost at an equivalent mass ratio to metallurgical alumina and is biased into sealed or unsealed artificial confinements, leading to crucial environmental issues. It contains oxides of iron, titanium, aluminum, and silica along with some other minor constituents. Presence of Alumina and Iron oxide in red mud compensates the absence of the same components in limestone which is the essential raw material for cement production. Based on economics as well as environmental related issues, massive efforts have been directed worldwide towards red mud disposal issues. The project work spotlights the suitability of red mud obtained for construction. Five test groups were constituted with the replacement percentages 0%, 5%, 10%, 15%, 20% of red mud with cement in each series. To achieve Pozzolan’s property of Red Mud. This paper points out another encouraging guidance for the proper utilization of red mud.
