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).

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.

In computer networks, it consists of policies and practises adopted to prevent and monitor unauthorised access. Networks can be both public and private where many of the counter attacks were practised. It is long known that IP spoofing or IP address spoofing is one of the major threats in communication protocol. IP spoofing is nothing but IP packets with forged source IP address, with purpose of concealing the identity of sender or impersonating an another computer system by forging the source address of packet header so it contains a different address, an attacker can make it appear that the packet was sent by a different machine .so that the IP spoofing comes into place. In existing, Passive IP trace back (PIT) that bypasses the deployment difficulties of IP trace back techniques. Though PIT cannot work in all the spoofing attacks and therefore we have proposed a novel idea, to restrict the Man in the Middle Attack (MITM) by providing inbound and outbound rules to avoid the challenges in operation. As long as the real origin of IP spoofing is not disclosed they cannot be deterred from launching further attacks. So the proposed solution ensures that the entity requesting for a service is an actual recipient by trace back the real identification of an attacker.

Refrigerators are widely used devices today. From keeping the food fresh to chilling the drinks, and even to preserve blood, refrigerators serve all such purposes. But sometimes it becomes cumbersome to use household refrigerators, especially when we are dealing with some grocery bags or a large utensil and there is no additional helping hand to open and close the refrigerator door. Foot lever refrigerator door opener and motor operated closure helps in opening and closing the fridge door even when both the human hands are engaged in handling stuff. Foot lever operated refrigerator door opener and motor operated closure uses a foot lever which operates a lock with the help of a cable lock opening assembly. The torsion spring attached to the hinges of the refrigerator door activates and opens the door. The electric motor is used to close the door when our job is finished.

There is large growing requirement of building materials in India due to urbanization. To meet this challenge, india requires innovative and efficient building material. Glass fiber reinforced gypsum (GFRG) wall panel is made essentially of gypsum plaster reinforced with glass fiber. The panels are hollow and can be used as load bearing walls. The hollow cores inside the walls can be filled with in-situ plain or reinforced concrete. Variation of buckling load of unfilled GFRG wall panels for various widths is reported. The axial load carrying capacity obtained from the numerical analysis and the test results comparable for this load case. While assessing the axial load capacity for design under compression, a minimum possible eccentricity is accounted for. An engineering model is proposed to assess the strength of unfilled and concrete filled GFRG wall panels in multi-storied building system subjected to lateral load such as earthquake.

Cracks in building are a common occurrence. It affects the stability and appearance of buildings. So, it is important to understand the cause of cracks and the effective measures should be taken for prevention. Though cracks in concrete cannot be prevented entirely but they can be prevented by using proper material and technique of construction and considering criteria. Sometimes water penetrates through cracks in building and cause severe damage to building. There are many reason of occurrence of cracks like moisture, thermal movement, elastic deformation, chemical reaction, foundation movement, vegetation and earthquake. We all dream of a house structurally safe and aesthetically beautiful but it is not so easy. So, timely identification of such cracks and adopting preventive measures is essential. In this paper, we will discuss about the methodology for prevention and repair of cracks in building. This research paper also gives information about result of Rebound Hammer Test and Ultrasonic Pulse Velocity Test for determining strength of concrete. Because strength of concrete is also an influencing factor for repairing cracks in building. So, we can say if crack repair is assumed to be building of structure then this paper can be assumed as foundation of it.

Urbanization has become a common feature of Indian society. Growth of industries as a result of industrialization, people have started moving towards the industrial areas in search of employment. These have resulted in the growth of towns and cities. A country can never prosper if the villages are not developed as this is an important part of country’s economy. Our project is about development of appropriate facility and suggestion for up gradation of Niyol village.Niyol is one of the villages in Palsana district. So it is essential to develop the village under the district for the growth of state and also for the country. Slow pace of development in villages and pursuit of better life style has led to huge migration from villages to cities. For most villages on one hand some essential infrastructural facilities like children playground, public garden etc. have been not available and on the other hand provided infrastructural facilities like drinking water, drainage etc. have become insufficient. As per the present scenario, the village has larger area but lack of infrastructures and facilities. They all have separate toilets at home by participating in Swachchh Bharat Abhiyan. The coordination between the villagers is good. But there is lack of employment. There is no proper facilities of transportation and other basic needs. There is mostly health issues are exerting in village. On the basis of collected data from Techno-economic survey & smart village survey, we found GAP between existing facilities and required facilities as per norms.
