Abstract

In a sustainable cities' environment, the role of "green" roadways is a critical component to assure the minimal impact in the ecosystem and the well-being of citizens. Sustainability principles can be applied to roadway construction and rehabilitation. They can provide quantifiable means of identifying alternative construction strategies with the least environmental impact and cost. Such objectives can be achieved through economic and environmental impact analysis of sustainable construction design alternatives. This paper presents the steps of an analysis involved in assessing and comparing alternative sustainable solutions by quantifiable means. Sustainability metrics are used for identifying the rating of each alternative and the best sustainable construction strategy. The suggested methodology provided here in can be used to develop an optimization function to identify feasible alternative solutions based on user inputs that generates the higher reduction in cost and environmental impact loads

Keywords: Sustainability, life cycle analysis, environmental impact analysis, sustainability.

International Journal of Computational Engineering Research, Volume 08 ~ Issue 12 (December – 2018)

Abstract

This paper presents the design optimization, sensitivity analysis and optimal system types of the hybrid renewable energy system (HRES) for health care clinic building. Sensitivity variables are evaluated on these parameters to verify how variances in this load would change standalone wind/PV/diesel/battery hybrid system costs and optimal system configurations, and also was found to have very huge significant impact on OST configurations, although slightly less fuel was consumed on a yearly basis. The result eventually shows that benchmark system has almost 75% times higher COE where the COE came out of all sensitivity value. Important proof exists in increase of the COE by sensitivity analyses in diesel price. Final conclusion from this section is that COE has significant decrease by sensitivity analyses..

International Journal of Computational Engineering Research, Volume 08 ~ Issue 12 (December – 2018)

Abstract

High-Rise Buildings are one of the major aspects of modern urban society. In the modern urban land use where there is a continuous pressure of population and human activities, the demand for vertical expansion or multiple utilization of land has become necessary. High-Rise Buildings can fully utilize the potentiality of land. On one hand, they are very useful in terms of multiple uses of land and on the other hand it plays a significant role in the changing facets of urban people. In the wave of globalization at present, these modern aspects are coming into small cities and playing a significant role in the daily life of the urban dwellers. The specific objectives of the study are to examine the distribution of High-Rise Buildings in the study area, the impact of High-Rise Buildings over.......

A Hybrid MRP-JIT Production Planning and Control System
Priyank S. Shah
USA
Paper Indexed : : 03.3005/xxxxxxx
International Journal of Computational Engineering Research, Volume 08 ~ Issue 12 (December – 2018)

Abstract

Over the years, production systems have largely been controlled by either MRP (Material Requirements Planning, JIT (Just in Time) or OPT (Optimized Production Technology) paradigm. As should be expected each of these paradigms has its limiting conditions for operational effectiveness. A hybrid production planning and scheduling framework is developed to address the multi-stage, production-inventory system problem by integrating MRP and JIT production. A combined MRP and JIT system can be more effective manufacturing system that utilizes the best attributes of each production paradigm to accommodate the best planning features of MRP and the best execution features of JIT to address the changing needs of industry.......

Keywords: MRP, JIT, push & pull type, production system.

Abstract

Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is one of the significant methods used to model and analyse the transport phenomenon of fluids. It has been widely used in many engineering fields to understand the flow pattern and the dynamic effects due to fluid motions. The developments of CFD in the field of marine technology, especially in ship hydrodynamics for last two decades is exceptional. Besides the recent advancements in computational capability in saving the computational time, the graphical user interface has also become more user friendly. The present paper sets the scene with a review on the applications of CFD in ship hydrodynamics followed by some suggestions for future work. The paper discusses the progress in estimation of resistance, propulsion, interaction studies, motion analysis and maneuvering aspects in ship hydrodynamics.

Keywords: Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), hydrodynamics, resistance, propulsion, seakeeping, maneuvering.

Novel Variable Step Size Complementary Pair Least Mean Square (VSS-CPLMS) Algorithm for System Identification

Paper Indexed : : 03.3005/xxxxxxx
International Journal of Computational Engineering Research, Volume 08 ~ Issue 12 (December – 2018)

Abstract

This paper presents the implementation of novel Complementary Pair Variable Step Size (CP-VSS-LMS) algorithm that uses two filters working in parallel, one with large step size called as speed mode filter and the other with small step size called as accuracy mode filter. This dual filter structure is originally proposed by MinSoo Park and Woo-Jin Song and later improved by Bilcu Radu C. by incorporating Variable step size for faster convergence and smaller misadjustment. But the algorithm proposed by them suffers from the drawback of increased computational complexity. Because of higher computational complexity, this algorithm has higher implementation cost which render it unsuitable especially for applications with long impulse response such as echo cancellation........

Keywords: Adaptive; least mean square; complementary pair; system identification.
