Abstract

In the present investigation, microstructure study and tensile behavior of nano ZrO2 particulate reinforced copper alloy composites has been reported. Copper matrix composite containing nano ZrO2 were fabricated by conventional stir casting method.The composites containing 4 wt. % of nano ZrO2 particulates were fabricated for the study. The microstructure of the composite was examined by scanning electron microscopy, images were taken to identify the presence of nano ZrO2 particle in aluminum matrix. Further, tensile behavior of as cast copper alloy and copper alloy-4 wt. % nano ZrO2 composites were studied. Tensile properties like ultimate tensile strength, yield strength and percentage elongation were evaluated as per ASTM standards. Microstructural observation revealed the uniform distribution of particles in the copper alloy matrix. From the analysis, it was found that the ultimate tensile strength and yield strength of composite was increased due to nano ZrO2 particles in the composite. Further, from the study percentage elongation of the composite decreases with the addition of nano ZrO2.

Keywords: Copper Alloy, nano ZrO2, Ultimate Tensile Strength, Yield Strength, Stir casting, Percentage Elongation.

Abstract

Photosynthesis has long been looked at as the gold standard for turning sunlight into energy and it only makes sense to look to plants for inspiration when building a new clean technology. Harvard and many other labs have been working on artificial leaves for years. Usually the result is a solar technology that when submerged in water or connected to a water source can split the water molecules into oxygen and hydrogen for use in a fuel cell. Last year, Harvard debuted their bionic leaf which goes beyond that and turns sunlight into liquid fuel. The system uses solar energy to split the water molecules, but also contains a hydrogen-eating bacterium that produces liquid fuel The new system converts sunlight into biomass at an efficiency of 10 percent, which is 10 times better than the one percent achieved by the fastest growing plants. The bionic leaf 2.0, they're using doesn't produce the reactive oxygen, making the system far more efficient and the new system can now produce many more fuels like Isobutanol, Isopentanol and PHB, a bio-plastic precursor.

Keywords: Photosynthesis ,bionic leaves , electrolysis, power generation, catalyst.

Abstract

Modeling of dynamics and trajectory control of different types of robots is important as these are widely used in industries, space exploration, surgical and other ultra-precision applications. The advantages of using robots are many like increase in productivity, high repeatability, and accuracy and to minimize risk to human life as robots can work in hazardous environment. Different approaches have been followed to model the dynamics of different configurations of robots. Bond graph approach and joint space scheme are two examples of the approaches which are followed. A bond graph model is developed to solve the dynamics of a two degree of freedom planar robot. Trajectory control is achieved using PID controller at each joint. The planar robot consists of two links without gripper..........

Abstract

Cloud Storage is an integral part of every individual's life. Vendors such as Amazon, Google and Microsoft provide Cloud Storage for managing and sharing data on the remote platform. One can't restrict the way that cost of distributed storage as far as security and adaptability is noteworthy for a person who needs to store a tremendous piece of information in the Cloud for a long term. This paper cogitates on the cost devaluation and the scalability, management of Cloud Storage by using Own Cloud server with RASPBERRY PI 3. To plan this goal, the essential hardware involved is the RASPBERRY PI 3 (model may vary) and secondary USB device, which will serve as Cloud Storage. By using the own Cloud server with RASPBERRY PI 3, an individual can use and distribute data on personal cloud storage.

Abstract

One of the major challenges of the present situation is to protect the environment. Present natural sources are declining rapidly and on other hand handling the waste management of C&D (Construction & Demolition) waste has become a challenge for the construction industry and its adverse effect on the environment. The problem can be resolved by exploiting the utilization of waste from building demolition waste as a sustainable material. In present research on M45 grade concrete, mix ratio of 1:1.73:2.93 with w/c ratio 0.35 was adopted , the experiment involved with 30% replacement of conventional aggregates by recycled coarse aggregates (RCA) and partial replacement of cement by Fly Ash (FA) with percentage variation ranging from 6%,12%,24% & 48%. Further 2% steel fibers (hooked) were introduced to prepare mix. From the results, Mix-4 shows appreciable improvement in Compressive, Split tensile & Flexural strength. So Mix-4 is originated to be optimal.

Abstract

Urban intersections are a primary concern for traffic engineers; they are the location of many accidents and the cause of most urban delay. There is fixed time slot for each intersection, so there is unnecessary waiting time for the vehicles even though there is less traffic density or no vehicles on other intersections. The aim of this paper is to minimize the waiting time at traffic signals (4-leg intersection and Pedestrian Crossing) resulting in time loss and wastage of fuel, thus it is significant to control the traffic signals in an effective manner. This paper concentrates on Model/Solution for traffic management at T intersection (Three and multiple legged intersections).

Abstract

The paper is the result of investigations made on microstructure and mechanical behavior of 3 and 6 weight percentage of nano sized ZrO2 reinforced to copper alloy (90% Cu and 10% Zn) composites. Copper matrix composite having nano zirconium oxide was fabricated by liquid stir casting method. The microstructure of the composites was examined by scanning electron microscopy and electron dispersive spectrum. Further, mechanical behavior of composites was studied. Tensile properties like hardness, ultimate tensile strength, yield strength and compression strength were evaluated as per ASTM standards. Microstructural observation revealed uniform distribution of ZrO2 reinforcement particles in the matrix and particulates were confirmed by scanning electron microscope. The analysis disclosed hardness, ultimate tensile strength, and yield strength of composites increased due to addition of reinforcements.

Abstract

As throughout this paper, we've got associate degree inclination to propose coming up with and usage of the N/W Overlapped Compression theme and CAS theme. CAS decreases the info load time and also hides the compression overhead and processed one after another in sequential fashion of a network Input/output demand transfer with bind format. CAS improves the dynamic allocation of blocks with different block sizes.[4] Information on scientific applications and analytic applications running in Hadoop can increase info compression has become essential to store this info at intervals an affordable storage value, although info is usually keep compressed, presently Hadoop takes forty ninth longer compressed info is comparison with uncompressed information. Compressed info decreases.............
