Transient Thermal Analysis of AlSiCp Composite Disc Brake
Y.V.N Chandana || K.V Purushotham Reddy
India
International Journal of Computational Engineering Research, Volume 07 ~ Issue 2 (February 2017)

Abstract

Disc brakes are devices which will slow down or stop the heading vehicle. During the process of braking the brakes get heated up. Repeated braking will cause the excessive heating of the disc and braking action becomes less effective when the disc is over heated. So it is very much necessary that the heat generated is dissipated faster or the disc material gets less heated. In this paper we have considered a metal Matrix Composite AlSiCp which will satisfy these criteria. An analysis of composite and CI disc brakes over a repeated braking is done and the results are analyzed.......

India
International Journal of Computational Engineering Research, Volume 07 ~ Issue 2 (February 2017)

Abstract

The X-ray diffractogram of raw ginger (Zingiber officinale), turmeric (Curcuma longa) and eri (Samia cynthia ricini) fibers are taken at different temperatures ( 313, 353, 393, 433 and 473 K) in an X-ray powder diffractometer (Phillips X'Pert Pro) with high temperature attachment (Anton Paar, HTK-16). It is found that the percentage of degree of crystalinity first increases from its value at 313K to the value at 353K, and then decreases at higher temperature for all the experimented raw fibers. The degree of crystallinity finds to be maximum at temperature 353K. The degree of crystallinity of chemically treated ginger fibers also finds to decrease with the rise of temperature with maximum at 353K. The degree of crystallinity of ginger fiber finds to increase due to degumming at a certain temperature.

Keywords: Zingiber officinale, Curcuma longa, Samia cynthia ricini, Degree of crystallinity, x-ray diffractogram.

Study of the Class and Structural Changes Caused By Incorporating the Target Class Guided Feature Subsetting in High Dimensional Data
H.N.Meenakshi || P.Nagabushan
India
International Journal of Computational Engineering Research, Volume 07 ~ Issue 2 (February 2017)

Abstract

High dimensional data when processed by using various machine learning and pattern recognition techniques, it undergoes several changes. Dimensionality reduction is one such successfully used pre-processing technique to analyze and represent the high dimensional data that causes several structural changes to occur in the data through the process. The high-dimensional data when used to extract just the target class from among several classes that are spatially scattered then the philosophy of the dimensionality reduction is to find an optimal subset of features either from the original space or from the transformed space using the control set of the target class and then project the input space onto this optimal feature subspace...........

T.S. Eliot's Spiritual Errand in the Waste Land
Bikramkesari rout || Rajnish lohani || Manisha panda || Pranati mishra || Bratatee mohapatra || Sweekruti panda
India
International Journal of Computational Engineering Research, Volume 07 ~ Issue 2 (February 2017)

Abstract

In T.S. Eliot's "The Waste Land", there is a quest for psychological and spiritual unity, which is vindicated in the poem's pattern of a spiritual journey. Reading the poem as such provides the reader with a tie that brings together its fragments, albeit being said to be formless. As the paper shows, the ultimate panacea to the psychotic's problems is believed to hinge on religion. Such a remedy makes possible the unity of the modern man's fragmented self in an age marked by spiritual sterility and sexual promiscuity. Therefore, religion emerges asthe fructifying power that can restore fertility to the spiritual aridity of modern civilization. Despite his theory of impersonality, the poem also addresses Eliot's religious questioning and quest..

Keywords:Organic unity, spiritual crisis, spiritual journey, The Waste Land, T.S. Eliot.

Treatment of symbolism in Yeats's Poetry
Bikram Keshari Rout || Manisha Panda || Pranati Mishra || Mousumi Das Pattnaik
India
International Journal of Computational Engineering Research, Volume 07 ~ Issue 2 (February 2017)

Abstract

William Butler Yeats, (13 June 1865 – 28 January 1939) was an Irish poet and playwright, and one of the foremost figures of 20th century literature. A pillar of both the Irish and British literary establishments, in his later years he served as an Irish Senator for two terms. Yeats was a driving force behind the Irish Literary Revival and, along with Lady Gregory, Edward Martyn, and others, founded the Abbey Theatre, where he served as its chief during its early years. In 1923 he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature as the first Irishman so honoured the Nobel Committee described as "inspired poetry, which in a highly artistic form gives expression to the spirit of a whole nation.‟ Yeats is generally considered one of the few writers who completed their greatest works after being awarded the Nobel Prize; such works include The Tower (1928) and The Winding Stair and Other Poems (1929). Yeats was a very good friend of Indian Bengali poet Nobel laureate RabindranathTagore..

Investigating the Nature of Symbolism in the Poetry of William Butler Yeats
Pranati Mishra || Manisha Panda
India
International Journal of Computational Engineering Research, Volume 07 ~ Issue 2 (February 2017)

Abstract

The influence of the French Symbolist Movement on Yeats has often been commented upon by the scholars. He is usually clubbed with the other symbolists like Dylan Thomas, Wallace Stevens, Ezra Pound and others. However, not many have delved upon the difference between the symbolism of Yeats and that of other contemporary modern poets. For writers like T.S. Eliot and Ezra Pound, symbols were a part of their avant-garde project which sought to look for newer ways to express themselves. But for Yeats, there was no difference between his thought process and the system of symbols he built throughout his life. This paper explores the unique and intimate preoccupation of Yeats with the coherent system of symbols used in his poetry. It also seeks to trace the development of Yeats' symbolism, the various influences which shaped his thought process and some of the most commonly used symbols in his poetry

Keywords: Symbolism, Yeats, Modern Poetry, Symbolist Movement

International Journal of Computational Engineering Research, Volume 07 ~ Issue 2 (February 2017)

Abstract

Instructed second-language acquisition (ISLA) research aims to provide teachers with evidence-based pedagogical recommendations, by examining L2 learning and teaching issues with scientifically rigorous methods. ISLA puts instruction as a central issue, building on traditional SLA research that primarily focuses on phenomena related to ‗how people learn languages later in life, above and beyond the mother tongue(s) they learn from birth' (Ortega 2015: 270). Although the transferability of individual research studies to the classroom varies, an ever-growing focus on pedagogy among ISLA researchers is evident in recent books (e.g. Loewen and Sato 2017) as well as empirical studies (e.g. DeKeyserand Prieto-Botana in press). As a result, researchers have become more concerned with whether they are disseminating their findings to teachers effectively. Additionally, there is an ongoing debate about the extent of teachers' interest in ISLA.
