Pervious concrete which is also known as the no-fines, porous, gap-graded, and permeable concrete and enhance porosity concrete has been found to be a reliable storm water management tool. By definition, pervious concrete is a mixture of gravel or granite stone, cement, water, little to no sand (fine aggregate) with or without admixtures. Pervious concrete is traditionally used in Parking areas, areas with high traffic, walk ways in parks and gardens, Residential streets, Pedestrian walkways and Green houses, Basketball and volley ball courts etc. In this study experimental investigation is carried out to study the properties of Pervious Concrete by partial replacing cement with different percentages of GGBS (0%, 20%, 40%, 50%, 60%, and 80%). To achieve optimum concrete mix various trial mixes are done by varying cement, coarse aggregate, water and super plasticizers. Once getting the optimum mix, six mix design are done by replacing cement with GGBS at 0%, 20%, 40%, 50%, 60%, 80 %. The pervious concrete mix is produced by using conventional cementitious materials, aggregates, and water. This concrete is tested for its Fresh properties such as workability and Hardened Properties such as density, void ratio, compressive strength, and water permeability. The most important property of pervious concrete is its water permeability. Currently, there is no standard experimental procedure to determine to this property. A method was therefore developed to determine the water permeability.

Sorting is an important thing in which any items or products can be differentiated based on their size, height and color. In order to sort items, we need to be able to compare them, i.e., to determine whether the object coming through the conveyor is smaller, greater, or equal to the respected height. Here we are going to do a simple object sorting system using the Programmable Logic Controller (PLC). The system consists of a conveyor model in which the sorting process takes place. The product will be coming through the conveyor system to the sensing part, based on the height of the object the product will be sorted through the conveyor system by using the Programmable Logic System (PLC).

Mekongga Protected Forest area located in Kolaka District, East Kolaka and North Kolaka, save the wealth of natural resources, in the form of forest honey bees which became a source of livelihood for the surrounding community. As the population increases, the rampant illegal logging has further reduced the supply of flower resources that feed the honeybees in the forest. As a result, the production of forest honey tends to decrease, which also causes the number of circulating fake honey in the region. To solve these problems, assistance is needed for the community. The research was conducted in Talodo Village and Kesio Village, Lalolae Sub-District, East Kolaka District with the purpose of the activity is 1. Increasing people's understanding of conservation values of forest resources, 2. Increase the knowledge of bee hunters to conduct 'Self-Control' which can foster desire in securing the source of income from honey bees through protection and planting of bee forage species and for bee tree planting; Increase the knowledge of bee hunters to conduct 'Self-Control' which can foster desire in securing the source of income from honey bees through protection and planting of bee forage species and for bee tree planting; 3. Increase the knowledge of honey gatherers to give buyers confidence to the genuine honey products produced by the hygienically and sustainably managed Mekongga natural forest using Self-Control, through the collection of honey, the packaging of honey using bottles. The methods used are lecture and discussion methods, technology transfer, and demonstration ways. Through the 'Self-Control' approach is able to increase community knowledge in monitoring and protecting the presence of nectar and pollen trees and host trees for honey bees. The community has also been able to perform hygienic harvesting techniques, packing honey in hygienic bottles, and labeling on bottles.

The intelligent energy management system is operated automatically to ON and OFF the generating sources as per the load demand. The renewable energy sources used in this energy management system are solar, wind, fuel cell and energy storage element battery as an input source. These renewable energy sources are integrated into the main dc bus through dc-ac converter. Microgrid is basically a group of large power grid. The renewable energy sources producing variable ac, variable dc and fixed dc. So, the converters in this are used to convert variable dc to fixed ac. The dc-ac converter is used for controlling the maximum amount of energy for the requirement of load demand. The Microgrid is operated in the real time and also for the load demand requirement. The ac microgrid is connected to the load for distribution. The Arduino is the microcontroller giving feedback to the inverters and converters.

Transparent concrete is the new type of concrete introduced in modern era which carries special property of light transmitting due to presence of glass fibres & is also known as translucent concrete or light transmitting concrete. It is lighter than conventional concrete having special features such as low density and thermal conductivity with main advantage of reduction in dead weight, faster building rate in construction, lower haulage & handling cost. Light is transmitted from one surface of the brick wall to the other due to optical fibres strands along the overall width of the wall which allows light to pass through. An optical fibre (or optical fibre) is a flexible, transparent fibre made of glass (silica) or plastic, slightly thicker than a human hair & can function as waveguide, or “light pipe” to transmit light between the two ends. Main aim of the study is to design translucent concrete blocks with the use of glass optical fibres with sand & cement then analyse their various physical & engineering properties with respect to conventional concrete blocks by adding glass optical fibres of 1%, 2 %, 3 % 4 % 5% at 0.5 cms & 1.0 cms spacing respectively. From the study, it can be concluded that there is 5% to 10% increase in initial compressive strength for 7 days & also 10% to 15% increase in initial compressive strength for 28 days to an optical fibres mix up to 3% whereas the initial & final characteristic compressive strength gradually decreases with an increase in Optical fibres in the concrete mix.
Keywords : Transparent concrete, Workability, Compressive strength, Tensile strength, Flexural strength.

There are four main and most types of cancer treatments, which are surgery, chemotherapy, radiotherapy, and immunotherapy. In this paper, we consider cancer treatment by radiotherapy. Radiation therapy is a treatment procedure that uses radiation to kill tumor cells. The Histone deacetylases inhibitor (HDAC) Vorinostat (suberoylanilide hydroxamic acid or SAHA) combination with radiotherapy blocks cancer cell proliferation. In this study we developed and analyse Mathematical model for tumor growth and histone deacetylase inhibitor, in combination with radiotherapy then we analyse the stability of equilibria. And fitting Patient 1 data to numerical simulation for locally weighted smoothing linear regression.
