Occupational Health & Safety
Background: To elucidate the current status of safety in the Large-scale manufacturing industry and find out the impact of various factors on worker safety in India.
Methods: To identify the current status and factors that contribute to a safety culture, a survey questionnaire was developed based on the prior studies. Modified Kappa Coefficient applied to check validity and inter-rater agreement in the questionnaire. The questionnaire was randomly distributed to 320 employees of Large Scale Manufacturing Industry and the valid questionnaire was 300. SPSS software was used and diverse tests, including the Mean, Mode, Standard Deviation, Cronbach's Alpha, Correlation, Variance, Frequencies, were used for the analysis of data.
Results: The result showed that there are inadequacies in many factors like Management response to Safety, Safety Training, Safety Communication, Work distribution, Workplace layout and Workplace environment problems like more noise and ergonomics problems.
Conclusion: As this study revealing the current status of safety in India is not appropriate. There is a large scope of improvement. Workers and management both are not aware of safety-related problems. There is also the difference in the opinion of workers and management about work related problems.

Usage of Renewable Energy
Energy crisis is a major concern in today’s world. As the demand of energy is increasing day by day, so the ultimate solution to deal with these sorts of problems is just to implement the renewable sources of energy. The objective of footstep power generation project is to abstract renewable energy. If this project is installed in highly dense areas such as railway stations, clubs, parks etc. then maximum amount of energy can be abstracted from it. By simply walking on footpath, electricity is generated. Also we are adding piezoelectric crystal on the platform of the footstep to increase power output. This project consists rack and pinion assembly as a driving mechanism. In this project, force energy is converted into electrical energy. The control mechanism consists of the rack & pinion, D.C generator, battery and inverter control. We have discussed the various applications and further extension also. So this project is implemented to all foot step, the power generation is very high.

India has agro-based economy and agriculture accounts for a large share of GDP and employment. Besides, a number of useful products, a large quantity of agro-wastes are also produced which is not properly used at present. These agro-wastes are either burnt as fuel or improperly disposed off causing the problem of waste treatment and environmental pollution. Furfural is derived from the pentosan in the cellulose of plant tissues, the most prominent sources of which are corn cobs, saw dust, rice husk, bagasse, pea nut shell. Most furfural that is being produced today is derived from corncobs. In the process we used two different concentrations of sulphuric acid was taken as 14% and 16%. For 16% acid concentration we get maximum conversion of Pentoses to furfural. The hydrolysis process was carried out in simple distillation set up; in distillate we get hydrolysed solution which contained mixture of water, furfural and some light fractions like as methanol acetone etc. After hydrolysis we have to separate furfural from hydrolysed solution therefore we used the Pervaporation process for separation of furfural. Pervaporation is the combination of evaporation and permeation. If we use distillation process after hydrolysis we required maximum time and more energy. By distillation we don’t not get water, ie water is not recycled. But by pervaporation we get pure water to recycling and required less energy and short duration for process.

Barium hexaferrite BaFe12O19, is a ferrimagnetic substance. Its magnetic properties are mainly due to the particular site distribution of Fe ions in it. The Fe3+ ions in BaFe12O19, were partially substituted by Zn2+ and Ti4+ ions. This paper reports the study of the magnetic properties of the compound BaFe10ZnTiO19 synthesized using the solid state diffusion method. X-Ray diffraction (XRD) study confirmed the magnetoplumbite (M) structure for the sample and was found to have a single crystalline phase. Magnetic properties are studied with the help of Vibrating Sample Magnetometer (VSM). Magnetization (M) is plotted against applied magnetic field (H) at room temperature which shows decrease in saturation magnetization (Ms), Coercivity (Hc) and remnant Magnetization (Mr) in the doped sample.

Network security is a big topic and is growing into a high profile in the field of Information Technology, due to its vast growth they are prone to various security concerns. In order to control these security concerns and prevent them this system is proposed. The security breaches of network include Denial of Service attacks. Botnets and SYN flooding attack are two Denial of Service attacks. SYN flood occurs when attackers make half-open connections by not responding to the SYN+ACK packet from server. When the server’s SYN buffer is full with these half-open TCP connections, it stops accepting SYN packets, thus resulting in denial of service to legitimate clients. Bots are the malicious scripts that perform automated tasks at a much higher rate than would be possible for a human alone.
The SYN flooding and Botnets are detected and addressed before they become an issue and bring down the network service. SYN flooding attack is detected by considering the rate at which the SYN packets are sent, the server will then reject all these suspicious TCP connections, with TCP-RST packets to prevent the potential DOS attack. Later all the connections in the SYN-RECV state will be closed forcibly by the server with the RST packets. Bots usually perform actions faster than humans hence the best way to detect them is by analyzing its behavior. Hence the action time and action frequency considering the number of clicks and the rate at which the form is submitted are determined. The activities which generate abnormal network traffic are detected and the attacker IP is obtained, then the log of these attackers IP are stored in the database so that no further bot activities takes place from the infected client machine.

Mostly in large cities such as Mumbai, Bangalore, Delhi, most patients prefer to go to large hospitals to visit the doctors. As a result there is a congestion in the large hospitals. Consequently most doctors usually only had roughly 5 minutes on average to make their diagnosis on the patients. Doctor may not think about all diseases at once by listening to patient’s symptoms. This problem grew even worse for radiologists also. In the large hospitals there are usually more than thousand examinations including images being performed (e.g., CT, MR, DR/CR) per day. Radiologist has to read more than 50 studies daily. They have only around 10 to 15 minutes to read images and to write a report for each study (e.g., CT or MR examination). Basically there is no time to review the patient’s history if such patients had multiple historical studies. So there is a big need to store all the valuable data and the symptoms on a web platform portal to make diagnosis efficient and accurate. An automated medical health diagnosis system is a web platform portal to facilitate doctors to enter patients’ symptoms and get the list of probable diseases, which enables doctors to start diagnosis quickly. In this system security is maintained as only the registered doctors can enter or update the system accordingly. The system enables the registered doctors to record the new diseases and symptoms if they find any. The project reduces the diagnosis time as well. Data handling technique is dealing with large amount of data with a great accuracy and reliability. This system has a database containing data about all diseases and their corresponding symptoms. When the patient details are entered, the system indicates the possible diseases the patient may be suffering from. The performance is measured by taking input from the registered doctor and from a patient who enter his symptoms and then analyzed. An Automated Medical Health Diagnosis System compares all entries in the database and update it if needed and finally gives the result in the form of diagnosed disease. Moreover it act as disease and symptoms repository.

The MAC unit is considered as one of the fundamental operations in DSP and it becomes a basic component in Application-Specific-Integrated-Circuits (ASIC).The MAC unit determines the speed of the overall system; it always lies in the critical path. Developing a high speed MAC is crucial for real time DSP applications. In other words the MAC operation is the main computational kernel in Digital Signal Processing (DSP) architectures. This paper shows the real time hardware and software implementation of MAC unit. This proposed MAC Unit is able to perform different arithmetic operations at high speed. Combinatorial form has been utilized to design all sub-modules being used in the MAC unit. And integrated in the final unit, reset and clock functionality has been provided in this final unit to have better control on the circuitry. The complete design has been developed by using MATLAB Simulink and then simulated and synthesized using XILINX ISE TOOL for FPGA Implementation... For this design the target FPGA device belongs to Spartan-6 (family), XC6lS45 (device), CSG324 (package) with speed grade of -4. Xilinx synthesis tool (XST) of Xilinx ISE-14.x has been used for synthesis purpose and for design MATLAB has been used. For the behavioral simulation purpose ISE simulator has been used.

Wireless mesh network represent a solution to provide wireless connectivity. There are number of assaults on remote sensor systems like dark gap attack,sink gapa attack,Sybilattack,selective sending and so on. In this paper we will focus on particular sending assault.Particular Forwarding Attack is one among the numerous security dangers in remote sensor systems which can debase arrange execution. A foe on the transmission way specifically drop parcel. The enemy same time exchange the bundle, while in few events it drops the parcel. It is difficult to recognize this kind of assault since the bundle misfortune might be because of inconsistent remote correspondence . The proposed plan depends on trust estimation of every hub. Amid information transmission a hub chooses a downstream hub that has most astounding trust esteem, which is refreshed progressively in light of the quantity of bundles a hub has sent and dropped. We contrasted our plan and existing plan and found that the bundle misfortune in the proposed plan is a great deal not as much as the current plan.

Voting style has been changed from the word counting papers to the electronically voting records. The system provides many advantages over the traditional voting system by reducing the voting process time and provides the performance in terms of more flexibility and accuracy. But there are some drawbacks also. The large volume of data takes a lot of time to process which affects the system performance. This huge amount of data can be stored, processed and analyzed in many ways but they require fast retrieval technique. Hadoop is considered as the best solution for handling big data which uses parallel computing techniques. Hadoop gives a complete administration apparatus to manage the huge data. That leads us to do this project using Hadoop and HIVE.
The demand for Automatic Voting Machine is ever increasing and the system creates a huge amount of data. The results that are produced should be processed in an efficient way. Traditional data storage system and their data processing techniques are not really effective in handling Big Data. These data can take different forms like structured, unstructured and semi structured. The processing power of the machine is influence by the large data size. The system is fully automated and be able to handle extremely large volumes of data. The datasets are created using the application and are used to analyze through HIVE and OOZIE. In Automatic Voting Machine user enter his/her voter Id. Through voterid it will check in HIVE tables whether voter ID is valid or invalid. If he/she is invalid, script will exit or else again check whether the voter is coming for the first time or not. If voter is coming for second time then scirpt will exit and if he is coming for first time then voter can select the candidate (party name) of his/her choice and cast the vote. The project contains the sqoop command. This is schedule in oozie to bring the data from mysql (RDBMS) to HIVE table. If the voting is completed, here it is assumed that at 5 PM voting will be completed and voter will not be allowed to cast his/her vote. So whenever wrapper script will execute it will check whether it is 5 PM if not then voter can cast his vote or else result will be displayed in terms of counting of votes with respect to candidates. Even the system also gives the result in terms of winning percentage with great accuracy.

The present works investigates the influence of re-entrant angle in a piston bowl geometry on both engine performance and combustion efficiency in a direct injection (DI) diesel engine using STAR-CD. The analysis was done by varying the reentrant angle of piston bowl between 16.35˚ to 25.35˚. All the other relevant parameters namely, compression ratio, bowl volume, squish clearance, engine speed and the mass of fuel injected were kept constant. It is observed that the in-cylinder pressures and temperatures are higher for 19.35˚ reentrant angle. NOx emissions were observed higher for 22.35˚ reentrant angle. Lower soot emissions were observed for 19.35˚ reentrant angle when compared with the other reentrant angles. The simulation analysis revealed that 19.35˚ reentrant angle is the optimum reentrant angle yielding best performance and lower emissions for the chosen engine geometry. Higher turbulent energy and velocity magnitude levels are obtained with 19.35˚ reentrant angle indicating efficient combustion emphasizing the need for optimized combustion chamber geometry for better performance and emissions.

Microelectromechanicalsystem (MEMS) technology have led to the development of optical devices with a large number of application areas. The reason is the unique MEMS characteristics that are its fabrication, system integration, and operation of micro-optical systems. The precision mechanics of MEMS micro-fabrication techniques, and optical functionality all make possible a wide variety of movable and tunable mirrors, lenses, filters, and other optical structures. The large number of electromagnetic modes that can be accommodated by beam-steering micro-mirrors and diffractive optical MEMS, combined with the precision of these types of elements, is utilized in fiber-optical switches and filters, including dispersion compensators. The potential to integrate optics with electronics and mechanics is a great advantage in biomedical instrumentation. Micro-optical systems also benefit from the addition of nanostructures to the MEMS toolbox. Photonic crystals and micro-cavities, which represent the ultimate in miniaturized optical components, enable further scaling of optical MEMS.

As the river sand is widely used in construction industry, the demand for fine aggregate is increasing rapidly. River sand has been the most widely used as fine aggregate around the world and to meet the demand has led to various harmful consequences such as increase in the depth of the river bed, lowering of the water table and salinity intrusion into the rivers. As a result, there was an immediate requirement for alternatives to river sand such as manufacturing sand which is prominently used as alternative material. An experimental study is made on the strength aspects of cement mortar by partially replacing river sand with Sea Sand and desert sand as fine aggregate. This study gives a comparison on the relevant material properties of Sea Sand (SS), Desert Sand (DS) and River Sand (RS).Different fine aggregate materials (SS, DS and RS) were used in 10%, 20%, 30%, 40% and 100% proportion to make cement mortar blocks and tested for compressive strength at 3, 7, 28 and 56 days of curing. The Sea Sand was partially replaced with the River Sand (10% SS and 90% RS) mortar blocks were cast and similarly for desert sand (10% DS and 90% RS). For each proportion of Fine Aggregates (FA) cement mortar blocks were cast and tested for compressive strength at 3, 7, 28 and 56 days of curing. The compressive strength results for both the sets of replacements (SS+RS and DS+RS) were tabulated and graphs were plot for compressive strength v/s curing period.

This paper introduces a hyperspectral denoising algorithm hinged on hybrid spatio-spectral total variation. The denoising issue have been hatched as a mixed noise diminution issue. A prevalent noise model has been pondered which reckon for not only Gaussian noise but also sparse noise. The inborn composition of hyperspectral images has been manipulated by using 2-D total variation along the spatial dimension and 1-D total variations along the spectral dimensions. The image denoising issues has been contrived as optimization hitch whose results has been acquired using the split-Bregman approach. The proposed method can minimize a remarkable amount of noise from real noisy hyperspectral images which is demonstrated by observational results. The proffer technique has been compared with prevailing avant-garde approaches. The outcomes reveal an excellence of the proposed method in the form of peak signal-to-noise ratio, structural similarity index and the visual quality.

Power Generation
Currently, a great deal of the automotive industry’s R&D effort is focused on improving overall vehicle efficiency. Almost every type of internal combustion engine work on the principle of heat engine. It converts the chemical energy into thermal energy and in the form of pressure of air carrying the heat, piston movement is done. Traditionally, only 25 to 30% of energy is begin utilized to run the vehicle and accessories mounted on the engine and left amount of energy is wasted in various ways likes in the form of exhaust and cooling of engine component. The useful engine is used to run the engine as well as generator. So the efficiency of those engine were very low. But one method to improve the efficiency is to develop methods to utilize waste heat that is usually wasted. One of the promising technology that was found to be useful for this purpose were thermoelectric generator. Therefore, this project involved making a bench type, proof of concept model of power production by thermoelectric generator and heat from exhaust emission of engine. In this study we investigated the use of thermoelectric generator for power production. The output energy checked by increasing of cylinder one by the help of morsh test. Power develop on the engine is checked by the morsh test. Thermoelectric generator so to impart stream of exhaust gas on surface of it and to generate small electric D.C. type of current developing upon temperature difference across intercooler or heat exchanger is installed in path of exhaust gas on seebeck effect. An output Voltage of 200mV was generated using a single Bi2Te3 thermoelectric module for a temperature difference of about 40o C. So can be able to change battery, tail lamp, head lamp, parking light, door light, indicator lump, G.P.S. system, night vision camera etc. So as to reduce frictional power against alternator can save fuel and also in automotive industry to increase the efficiency of engine.

Social recommendation system has attracted a lot of attention recently in the research communities of information retrieval, machine learning and data mining. Traditional social recommendation algorithms are often based on batch machine learning methods which suffer from several critical limitations, e.g., extremely expensive model retraining cost whenever new user ratings arrive, unable to capture the change of user preferences over time. Therefore, it is important to make social recommendation system suitable for real world online applications where data often arrives sequentially and user preferences may change dynamically and rapidly. In this paper, we present a new framework of online social recommendation from the viewpoint of online graph regularized user preference learning (OGRPL), which incorporates both collaborative user-item relationship as well as item content features into an unified preference learning process. I further develop an efficient iterative procedure, OGRPL-FW which utilizes the Frank-Wolfe algorithm, to solve the proposed online optimization problem.

Frequency synthesizer is an electronic device that is used for creating a number of frequencies in a large band by using a constant signal from an oscillator. They are used in a lot of devices like Satellites, walkie-talkies, cell phones etc. Direct digital frequency synthesizer (DDFS) is a device which is used to generate a large number of frequencies using electronic technique.  Its input is a constant digital signal and it generates a discretionary waveform of different frequencies. It is also known as Numerically Control Oscillator. Its detailed parts are ROM, phase accumulator and phase register. It has some analog parts also like digital to analog converter and a low pass filter.  When reference clock is given to NCO, it produces a square signal which advances at each progressive clock. The phase register is used to produce various phases using shift keying etc. The main purpose of this paper is to outline, investigate and to reproduce DDFS using environments like Xilinx, Cadence etc.  Currently phase locked loops are in wide use but DDFS provides many advantages over PLL like low noise, low cost, fast settling time and high range of frequencies.

Heat Exchanger
Heat Exchangers are one of the most important engineering systems with various applications like power plants, nuclear reactors, refrigeration and air conditioning, heat recovery systems, chemical processing and food industries. Basic advantage of helical Coil heat exchanger is its higher heat transfer with compact size, due to secondary flow generation in coil. One of the passive methods of heat transfer enhancement is used here, by changing the design of helical coil. Few investigators have introduced Critical Reynolds number to identify the transition from laminar to turbulent flow in helical coils which is given by Schmidts Co-relation. An attempt is made to change the curvature ratio continuously throughout the coil by using a conical shaped coil in order to decrease the critical Reynolds number. Then fabrication of both straight and conical coil heat exchangers is done for experimentation work. The mass flow rate range through coil is taken 0.01 kg/s,0.02 kg/s, 0.05 kg/s,0.07 kg/s,0.09 kg/s, 0.1 kg/s keeping mass flow rate through shell 0.05 kg/s constant also tube inlet and shell inlet temperatures maintained same 42ºC and 27 ºC respectively for all mass flow rate. This experimentation is done in parallel as well as in counter flow arrangement. Experimental results of conical coil are compared with straight helical coil. As mass flow rate through coil increases there is increment in shell outlet temperature by enhancement of heat transfer by 2.78%, average heat transfer and LMTD by 12%, heat transfer coefficient by 4%, overall heat transfer coefficient by 11% and decrement in friction factor and pressure drop by 40% in conical coil heat exchanger counter arrangement as compare to straight coil heat exchanger.

Chassis
Chassis is one of the vital parts that used in automobile engineering. it is a firm structure that forms a skeleton to hold all the major parts together. Chassis frames are made of “steel section” so that they are strong enough to withstand the load and shock.
Chassis must be light in weight to decrease dead mass on the vehicles. Major challenge in today’s automobile vehicle industry is to overcome the increasing demands for higher performance, lower weight in order to satisfy fuel economy requirements, and longer life of components, all this at a reasonable cost and in a short period of time. The study is to produce results to rectify problems associated with structures of a commercial vehicle such as strength, stiffness and fatigue properties along with stress, bending moment and vibrations. This can be achieved by static and dynamic analysis, combining existing theoretical knowledge and advanced analytical methods. Design of a Chassis is carried by using CATIA .And finite element analysis will be carried out by using ANSYS.

Cryptography
In today's period of the invasive figuring, the Internet has turned into the principle method of information correspondence. In such a situation, giving security to information turns into a mind boggling assignment. In Elliptic bend cryptography (ECC) is a developing most loved in light of the fact that requires less computational force, correspondence data transmission, and memory when contrasted with different cryptosystems In this paper we introduce Elliptic bend cryptography and Diffie–Hellman key understanding, itself is a mysterious (non-confirmed) key-assertion convention, it gives the premise to an assortment of verified conventions, and is utilized to give forward mystery to web programs application utilizing HTTPS. In its mainstream organization on the internet, provides confirmation of the site and related web server that one is corresponding with, which secures against Man-in-the-center assaults. Also, it gives bidirectional encryption of interchanges between a customer and server, which ensures against listening stealthily and messing with and/or manufacturing the substance of the correspondence and for better security we will apply mark and confirmation calculation for ECC and for verification we have performed digital signature algorithm for better assessment of security approach.

Grammar (or syntax) means that the sentence is syntactically correct. The main purpose of a grammar to check whether sentence is free of syntax errors. An entire document or one sentence at a time is checked for grammatical construct. Opinion mining in terms of sentiment analysis to identify the nature of sentence like positive or negative polarity of text. In modern days several social sites indicated text in the form of comment, Part of Speech (POS) etc. These comments are sense as positive text or negative text. This sense will help to find out the accurate result with the help of sentiment analysis. The main objective of the paper is to read a text and separates it into sentences. First phase of the paper is to detect grammatical error in the sentences based on POS. The detection is based on some assumptions. The second phase is to determine the polarity of the grammatically correct sentence.
