International Journal of Computational Engineering Research, Volume 06 ~ Issue 06 (June 2016)

Abstract

Establishing an efficient data gathering scheme in wireless sensor networks is a challenging task. Lot of researches has been carried out to establish energy efficient data gathering scheme to avoid heavy traffic received by the nodes near the sink. Data gathering scheme is a significant factor in determining the network lifetime. In this paper we propose an efficient data gathering scheme by introducing clustering and mobility into the wireless sensor network. We consider data collection in wireless sensor networks by utilizing mobile data collector and cluster heads. Cluster heads are chosen and clusters are formed to collect data from the sensor nodes. The proposed scheme finds the shortest tour for the mobile data collector to collect data from the cluster heads. The shortest tour saves time and energy in data gathering.

Keywords: Wireless Sensor Networks, Mobile Data Collector, Sink, Cluster Heads, Minimum Spanning Tree, LEACH, Network Lifetime.

International Journal of Computational Engineering Research, Volume 06 ~ Issue 06 (June 2016)

Abstract

Mobile Ad hoc networks (MANETs) consist of a set of mobile nodes which can move about freely and are very sensitive to security threats due to their nature of deployment such as open wireless system. MANETs have self-configuring ability of nodes and infrastructure less nature hence they are preferred in significant applications. This itself emphasizes the importance of security and the need for an efficient intrusion detection system in MANETs. Many IDS have been proposed for detecting malicious nodes. On such different IDS, Enhanced Adaptive Acknowledgment (EAACK) has overcome the drawbacks of Watchdog, ACK and TWOACK. In our proposed work we have identified the inadequate nature of EAACK in scenarios of link breakage, source maliciousness...........

International Journal of Computational Engineering Research, Volume 06 ~ Issue 06 (June 2016)

Abstract

Mortar as a building component has been in use in Nigeria and many nations for a very long time. However, the high and increasing cost of the constituent materials has contributed to the non-realization of adequate housing for both urban and rural dwellers in many African countries. But, mortar like any typical building component, has properties that are used for their classification, quality determination and hence, their application. In this research, tests were performed on mortar blocks containing cement and sand in varying mix proportions, i.e. mix ratios of 1:4, 1:3, 1:2 and 1:1 and water/cement ratios of 0.75, 0.66, 0.44 and 0.38, respectively (CEMEX mortars testing) were used to determine the effect of sand from Coscone in Awka, Niger Bridge River Sand in Onitsha, Obichuluekwe river sand in Nimo and NAU(Unizik) soil, all in Anambra State on compressive strength of mortar cubes..........

Abstract

Step by step human solace is raising its criticalness. Human solace is that state of psyche, which communicates fulfillment with the warm condition according to the American Society of Heating, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Engineers. The traditional methods for accomplishing warm solace is the vitality devouring mechanical forced air systems framework and the refrigerant utilized is destructive to the natural framework. The vitality is a significant issue. Remembering this factor, the current work has been tried to lessen the cooling heap of a current structure by utilizing latent cooling ideas as opposed to utilizing the mechanical cooling framework to disperse heat for warm solace. Among the latent cooling, interior and outer concealing ideas have been actualized for the fenestrations and a practical course of action of earthen pots have been considered for the rooftop cooling. It has been seen that the cooling heap of the structure has been decreased about 47% because of concealing and up to 56% because of use of earthen pots when utilized independently.

Abstract

A neural network based inverse kinematics solution of a robotic manipulator is presented in this paper. Inverse kinematics problem is generally more complex for robotic manipulators. Many conventional solutions are inadequate, if the joint arrangement of the manipulator is more complicated. In Inverse kinematics problem, the neural computation have to find the coordinates by giving the joint angles for a given Cartesian position and orientation of the end effectors. Many initial and final points are generated in the work volume of the robotic manipulator by solving the neural network. The entire real-world coordinates (x, y, z) as per the angles recorded in a file named as training set of neural network model. The designed neural model has specified the correct coordinates according to the certain angles of Cartesian coordinate. The inverse kinematics problems of industrial robot manipulator are solved by using Artificial Neural Network (ANN) algorithm. The 6R robot manipulator is selected as industrial robot manipulator because geometric feature of this robot does not allow for solving inverse kinematics problems analytically..
