Abstract: Composites are most promising materials of recent interest. Metal matrix composites (MMCs) possess significantly improved properties compared to unreinforced alloys. There has been an increasing interest in composites containing low density and low cost reinforcements. In view of the generation of large quantities of solid waste by products like fly ash and slags, the present expensive manner in which it is discarded, new methods for treating and using these solid wastes are required. Hence, composites with fly ash and granulated blast furnace (GBF) slag as reinforcements are likely to overcome the cost barrier for wide spread applications in automotive and small engine applications. In the present investigation, AA 2024 alloy-5 wt% fly ash and GBF slag composites separately were made by stir casting route. Phase identification and structural characterization were carried out on fly ash and GBF slag by X-ray diffraction studies. Scanning electron microscopy with energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy EDS was used for microstructure analysis. The hardness and compression tests were carried out on all these alloy and composites. The SEM studies reveal that there was a uniform distribution of fly ash and GBF slag particles in the matrix phase and also very good bonding existed between the matrix and reinforcement. Improved hardness and mechanical properties were observed for both the composites compared to alloy; this increase is higher for Al-fly ash composite than Al-GBF slag composite.

Patikineti Sreenivasulu, Srinivasa Rao, Vinaya Babu
Int'l J. of Communications, Network and System Sciences (IJCNS) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/ijcns.2015.85016
Abstract: Power consumption is the bottleneck of system performance. Power reduction has become an important issue in digital circuit design, especially for high performance portable devices (such as cell phones, PDAs, etc.). Many power reduction techniques have also been proposed from the system level down to the circuit level. High-speed computation has thus become the expected norm from the average user, instead of being the province of the few with access to a powerful mainframe. Power must be added to the portable unit, even when power is available in non-portable applications, the issue of low-power design is becoming critical. Thus, it is evident that methodologies for the design of high-throughput, low-power digital systems are needed. Techniques for low-power operation are shown in this paper, which use the lowest possible supply voltage coupled with architectural, logic style, circuit, and technology optimizations. The threshold vol-tages of the MTCMOS devices for both low and high Vth are constructed as the low threshold Vth is approximately 150 - 200 mv whereas the high threshold Vth is managed by varying the thickness of the oxide Tox. Hence we are using different threshold voltages with minimum voltages and hence considered this project as ultra-low power designing.

Journal of Minerals and Materials Characterization and Engineering (JMMCE) , 2009, DOI: 10.4236/jmmce.2009.82013
Abstract: The red sand which is known as Teri sand in Tamil Nadu consists of 5.5% Total Heavy Minerals (THM) out of which 3.7% is ilmenite. The other minerals, zircon, sillimanite and garnet are in the order of abundance identified. On processing this feed to recover ilmenite by using spirals followed by dry high intensity magnetic separator and high tension separator, the ilmenite concentrate obtained contains 99.1% ilmenite with 3.5% yield and 94% recovery. The other heavy minerals, including zircon (53.3%) and sillimanite (31.7%), could be further processed for recovery of individual mineral of zircon and sillimanite by judicious combination of gravity and flotation processes.

Journal of Minerals and Materials Characterization and Engineering (JMMCE) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/jmmce.2012.115038
Abstract: The article has been retracted due to the investigation of complaints received against it. The Editorial Board found that substantial portions of the text came from other published paper. Comparing with the paper published in International Journal of Engineering, Science and Technology Vol. 3, No. 4, 2011, pp. 82-88 (www.ijest-ng.com), these two papers have the same contents before Figure 7 and the author added Fig. 8, 9, 10 on the 2012 paper. The scientific community takes a very strong view on this matter, and the Journal of Minerals and Materials Characterization and Engineering (JMMCE) treats all unethical behavior seriously. This paper published in Vol.11 No.5, 529-541, 2012 has been removed from this site.

Journal of Minerals and Materials Characterization and Engineering (JMMCE) , 2011, DOI: 10.4236/jmmce.2011.109061
Abstract: Cold Workability limits of Brass were studied as a function of friction, aspect ratio and specimen geometry. Five standard shapes of the axis symmetric specimens of cylindrical with aspect ratios 1.0 and 1.5, ring, tapered and flanged were selected for the present investigation. Specimens were deformed in compression between two flat platens to predict the metal flow at room temperature. The longitudinal and oblique cracks were obtained as the two major modes of surface fractures. Cylindrical and ring specimen shows the oblique surface crack while the tapered and flanged shows the longitudinal crack. Machine Vision system using PC based video recording with a CCD camera was used to analyze the deformation of 4 X 4 mm square grid marked at mid plane of the specimen. The strain paths obtained from different specimens exhibited nonlinearity from the beginning to the end of the strain path. The circumferential stress component Os increasingly becomes tensile with continued deformation. On the other hand the axial stress Oz , increased in the very initial stages of deformation but started becoming less compressive immediately as barreling develops. The nature of hydrostatic stress on the rim of the flanged specimen was found to be tensile. Finite element software ANSYS has been applied for the analysis of the upset forming process. When the stress values obtained from finite element analysis were compared to the measurements of grids using Machine Vision system it was found that they were in close proximity.

Advances in Remote Sensing (ARS) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/ars.2012.11001
Abstract: Development of irrigation infrastructure and its efficient management is the primary concern for sustainable food production. The assessment of irrigation infrastructure creation, its utilization, diagnostic evaluation of the various performance indices (monitoring) are important to measure the efficiency. Benchmarking of Irrigation Systems (BIS) is for the diagnostic analysis of irrigation performance indicators comprising of Irrigation Infrastructure System (IIS), Agricultural System (AS), Water Delivery Dynamics (WDD). Since, the performance of an irrigation command varies with space and time, utilization of spatial information technologies viz. Remote Sensing (RS), Geographical Information Systems (GIS), Global Positioning Systems (GPS) useful to provide spatial information on several indices in the process of benchmarking (BM). Information requirements for BIS at different stages, utilization of spatial information technologies to derive irrigation performance indicators was discussed with suitable examples and demonstrated in this study. The studies carried out indicates that the geospatial approach for BIS enabled the improvements in data collection methods, diagnostic analysis, spatio-temporal visualisation of BM indicators at disaggregated canal level which would be useful for decision support during the corrective management measures. The conjunctive use of multi-date (medium resolution) satellite data, high spatial resolution data, field data on water deliveries was found to be an alternative to the conventional non-spatial approaches for BIS and thereby better water resources planning and management.

Abstract: Kerala state in the SW part of Indian subcontinent hosts one of the best beach placer deposits in the world. The near shore deposit is ~140Mt and is very rich in heavy minerals, often up to 70%, and ilmenite forms its chief constituent. The seasonal enrichment of this deposit takes place through monsoonal activity and the recent tsunami (24 December 2004) had significantly contributed its share. Mineralogical and chemical variation of the surface (pre- and posttsunamigenic) as well as subsurface ilmenites (4-5m depth) of this deposit has been investigated. SEM examination on ilmenites of pre-tsunamigenic period conveys that the micromorphology represents mostly of mechanical activities rather than chemical and solution activities. Both post-tsunamigenic and subsurface ilmenites were influenced dominantly by solution and chemical alteration. The pre-tsunamigenic (surficial) ilmenite grains consist only of rutile as an altered product with a small FeO – Fe2O3 ratio. However, the presence of considerable altered products such as rutile and pseudorutile in the post-tsunamigenic and subsurface ilmenite indicates that the ilmenite alteration is in an advanced state. Regarding trace element composition, it was found that Al, Mg, Na, Ca, Cd, Co, K, Sr and Pb have higher contents in both core and post-tsunamigenic ilmenite than the pre-tsunamigenic ilmenite. These elements play an important role in understanding the behavior of the minerals during beneficiation and further processing. The relative lesser content of such elements in the onshore pre-tsunamigenic ilmenite grains reveals that the chemical leaching has not been active compared to the ilmenite concentrates from the shallow sea that have been brought by the tsunami and also to that have been deposited earlier and now seen underneath up to a depth of ~5m.
International Journal of Engineering Science and Technology , 2011,
Abstract: Animals produce different sounds for their communication. Animal voices collected under normal environmental conditions are usually degraded due to noise and distortion. “Speech enhancement” is an attempt to improve the degraded voice quality while preserving the information, at the very least, speech intelligibility. The objective of speech enhancement algorithms is to improve one or more perceptualaspects of noisy speech, most notably, and quality. The species under evaluation are African elephant, Beluga whale, and Ortolan bunting. The paper presents a fine approach for speech enhancement over the recordings of selected animal vocalizations in noisy environments. The proposed approach is evaluated by selected algorithms used ndividually as well as cascaded combinations for a better signal to noise ratio. The noise reduction algorithms under investigation in this paper are the Spectral Subtraction (SS), Wiener Filter (WF), Minimum Mean Square Error (MMSE), Wavelet based Filter (WT), and Kalman Filter (KF).

International Journal on Computer Science and Engineering , 2011,
Abstract: The paper presents a new speech enhancement approach for a single channel speech enhancement in a noise environment. In this method speech is mixed with real-world noises from babble, car and street environments. In this paper we proposed modified Kalman method for effective speech enhancement. The proposed method is compared to the traditional Spectral Subtraction (SS), Wiener Filter (WF), Minimum Mean Square Error (MMSE) and Wavelet based Filter (WAVELET). Experiments showed that the modified algorithm can give better SNR improvement and Subjective evaluation tests demonstrate significant improvement results over classical algorithms, when tested withspeech signal corrupted a posterior by various noises at different signal to noise ratios.
