  • Centralized Control for Dynamic Channel Allocation in IEEE 802.15.4 Based
           Wireless Sensor Networks

    • Authors: Anuchit Nirapai, Soamsiri Chantaraskul
      Abstract: Coexistence problem is one of the most important issues in the IEEE 802.15.4 based Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs), since the system operates on the highly populated 2.4 GHz ISM band. As a result, system performance of WSNs can be greatly impaired by the interference from over powering signal from other systems such as WLAN and Bluetooth. This paper proposes an approach based on centralized control for dynamic channel allocation. The proposed method offers multi-channel utilization with intelligent controlling mechanism in order to provide system performance enhancement in order to cope with variation of interfered environment. Based on centralized control, decision making process is performed by the network coordinator allowing such system flexibility. Simulation model has been developed and it is embedded with this proposed mechanism in order to test the system performance. To observe the system performance under the proposed method, variety of simulation scenarios are performed with the variation of two major factors affecting system performance including the size of the network topology and the scale of interference. Proposed method is evaluated and the simulation results are compared against tradition system as well as system with multi-channel utilization method with channel scheduling. The flexibility of the method proposed here allows the system to have better system performance under different test scenarios both in terms of average packet end-to-end delay and system throughput.

  • Dynamic Vehicle Routing Problem with Multiple Depots

    • Authors: Kwankaew Meesuptaweekoon, Paveena Chaovalitwongse
      Abstract: Vehicle Routing Problems (VRPs) have been extensively studied and applied in many fields. Variants of VRPs have been proposed and appeared in researches for many decades. Dynamic Vehicle Routing Problem with Multiple Depots (D-MDVRP) extends the variation of VRPs to dynamism of customers by knowing the information of customers (both locations and due dates) at diverse times. An application of this problem can be found in food delivery services which have many service stores. The customer delivery orders are fulfilled by the scattered service stores where can be analogous to depots in D-MDVRP. In this example the information of all customer orders are not known at the same time depending on arrivals of customers. Thus the objective of this operation is to determine vehicle routing from service stores as well as dispatching time. This paper aims to develop the heuristic for D-MDVRP. The proposed heuristic comprises of two phases: route construction and vehicle dispatch. Routes are constructed by applying Nearest Neighbor Procedure (NNP) to cluster customers and select the proper depot, Sweeping and Reordering Procedures (SRP) to generate initial feasible routes, and Insertion Procedure (IP) to improve routing. Then the determination of dispatch is followed in the next phase. In order to deal with the dynamism, the dispatch time of each vehicle is determined by maximizing the waiting time to provide the opportunity to add more arriving customers in the future. An iterative process between two phases is adopted when a new customer enters the problem, and the vehicles are dispatched when the time becomes critical. From the computational study, the heuristic performs well on small size test problems in a shorter CPU time compared to the optimal solutions from CPLEX, and provides an overall average 8.36 % Gap. For large size test problems, the heuristic is compared with static problems, and provides an overall average 3.48 % Gap.

  • Seismic Shear Forces in Shear Walls of a Medium-Rise Building Designed by
           Response Spectrum Analysis

    • Authors: Ky Leng, Chatpan Chintanapakdee, Toshiro Hayashikawa
      Abstract: According to ASCE7-05, response spectrum analysis (RSA) procedure can be used to determine the seismic demands of the structures for the seismic design of any type of structures. However, this design procedure has been found to be inappropriate for medium-rise and high-rise buildings. This paper is aimed at verifying the RSA procedure prescribed in the current Thai seismic design code which is based on ASCE7-05 and proposing appropriate modification to the design shear force from RSA procedure. A 16-story medium-rise reinforced-concrete core-wall case-study building was first designed based on RSA procedure and then the non-linear response history analysis (NLRHA) was performed to determine the more accurate seismic demands of the structure. The results show that seismic shear demand of the shear wall from non-linear analysis is about 2 times the shear capacity of the wall designed by RSA procedure. This could lead to shear failure in the shear walls designed by RSA procedure. To avoid shear failure in the shear wall elements, the shear demands in the wall elements designed by RSA procedure needs to be amplified by a factor of 2, which is equivalent to reducing the response modification factor R = 5.5 in ASCE7-05 to R = 2.75 (for shear force in the shear wall only).

  • 200W PEM fuel cell stack with online model-based monitoring system

    • Authors: Pittaya Khanungkhid, Pornpote Piumsomboon
      Abstract: Although various designs have been introduced to improve the performance of a Proton Exchange Membrane Fuel Cell (PEMFC) stack system, fault conditions, such as drying or flooding, may still occur due to the complexity of the process. The development of a system which can detect these fault conditions is a key to operate PEMFC stack system effectively. In this study, a monitoring system for a 200W commercial PEMFC stack system has been developed by constructing models for determining the flooding and drying conditions inside the cell. Since the membrane resistance and pressure drop across the stack are important parameters for determining either drying or flooding conditions taking place inside the fuel cell, the online model-based monitoring system is developed by adopting existing algorithms. A number of instruments are installed to measure relevant data. The data acquisition system and mathematical models have been programmed under LabVIEWTM environment. To indicate the abnormally conditions inside the fuel cell stack, the model predictions is compared with the measured values and the size of the discrepancy will be the indicator.

  • Dredged Marine Sediments Geotechnical Characterisation for Their Reuse in
           Road Construction

    • Authors: Walid Maherzi, Farouk Ben Abdelghani
      Abstract: A large Research European Interreg IVA Program called “Sustainable Environmental Treatment And Reuse of Marine Sediment” is running in order to better understand the Channel sediment characteristics and to develop and promote sustainable management practices for marine sediments. A total of 13 sediments localized along the Manche channel were sampled and analyzed for SETARMS project. A comprehensive series of laboratory tests were performed to characterize different sediments and to class them from a geotechnical point of view according to the French standard GTR. This will be necessary to evaluate the potential use of treated sediments. Then to determine, with GTS French guide recommendations the appropriate formulation using hydraulic binders in order to improve sediments mechanical properties. This paper presents and discusses results of physical and geotechnical characterization of different sediments sampled from different French ports. Geotechnical characterization results show that sediments are classified as fine and plastic materials with low to high organic matter content. Knowing that the variability of the sediments characteristics is one of the limits to their reuse in geotechnical applications, the results will be presented and put in prospect towards this variability and the reuse of sediment as a subgrade layer.

  • Numerical Analysis of Concrete Block Pavements and comparison of its
           Settlement with Asphalt Concrete Pavements using Finite Element Method

    • Authors: Gholamali Shafabakhsh, Afshin Family, Babak Pourzand Hossein Abad
      Abstract: Regarding time consuming properties and complex intervention of layers and different materials, it is better to replace laboratory based design and analysis of pavements with quick and powerful software including finite element, finite reduction software and etc. Using finite element software ABAQUS, at first, the paper investigated effects of changes of concrete block thickness in vertical stress and it was validated with experimental results. Also, using this software, effect of asphalt concrete thickness change was studied in vertical strain. And finally, results of finite element model were validated, using experimental data. Regarding that finite element analysis is suitable for crust environments and concrete block pavement does not have such environment, this research tends to compare these two types of pavements, using mathematical equations to analyze settlement. To do this, first, two models were designed, one for concrete block pavement and the other one for asphalt concrete pavement. Subgrade and base layers’ models were the same in geometrical point of view and types of materials, but thickness of asphalt and concrete block pavement layers and bedding sand changed, alternatively and based on the obtained relations and diagrams, there has been a chance to equate indices of these two types of pavements.

  • The Can-Order Policy for One-Warehouse N-Retailer Inventory System: A
           Heuristic Approach

    • Authors: Varaporn Pukcarnon, Paveena Chavalitwongse, Naragain Phumchusri
      Abstract: We study an application of the can-order policy in one-warehouse n-retailer inventory system, and propose a heuristic approach for setting the appropriate inventory policy. On the can-order policy, an order is triggered when a retailer’s inventory position reaches its must-order level. Then other retailers are examined whether their inventory reaches their can-order level, and if so they are filled by this order as well. Warehouse fulfills all involved retailers’ inventory to their order-up-to levels. The can-order policy is not only able to save the total system-wide cost from joint replenishment, but it is also simple to use. Computer simulation is utilized to preliminarily study and to determine the best-known solution. We propose a heuristic approach utilizing decomposition technique, iterative procedure, and golden section search to obtain the satisfying total system-wide cost. This can save our computational time to find the appropriate inventory policy setting. We found that the proposed heuristic approach performs very well with the average cost gap less than 2% comparing to the best-known solution. It also provides satisfactory computational time from the reduced search space. Thus, the can-order policy can be very useful for such system.

  • Using Multi-Descriptors for Real Time Cosmetic Image Retrieval

    • Authors: Jennisa Areeyapinan, Pizzanu Kanongchaiyos, Aram Kawewong
      Abstract: Cosmetic Image Retrieval (CIR) is a methodology for searching and retrieving images from Cosmetic Image Collection (CIC). There are numerous cosmetic brands whose types are similar to others. In addition, there are not trivial to retrieve cosmetic images because of its complexity and duplicative shape, as well as detail of various cosmetic items. We present a method for CIR using multi-descriptors, combining global and local features for image descriptors. Along with integrating a Scale-Invariant Feature Transform (SIFT) and Critical Point Filters (CPFs) to achieve accuracy and agility in CIR processing, called CPF level 9 & SIFT. SIFT is used for detailed-image, such as cosmetic image, to reduce the time complexity for extracting keypoints. On the other side, CPF will filter only for the critical pixel of the image. From the experiment, our method can reduce computation time by 50.46% and 99.99% by using SIFT and CPF respectively. Moreover, our method is preserved efficiency, measured by precision and recall of CPF level 9 & SIFT, which is as high as the precision and recall of SIFT.

  • Systematic Approach to Problem Solving of Low Quality Arc Welding during
           Pipeline Maintenance Using ARIZ (Algorithm of Inventive Problem Solving)

    • Authors: Trizit Benjaboonyazit
      Abstract: The pipelines in the oil and gas industry must be regularly checked for possible corrosion that might cause leakage of oil and gas. Magnetic flux leakage (MFL) technique is a magnetic method of nondestructive testing that is used to detect corrosion and metal loss in steel pipelines. The MFL device travels inside a pipeline to inspect the corrosion parts with a powerful magnet which is used to magnetize the pipe wall. At areas where there is corrosion or missing metal, the magnetic field leaks from the pipe wall and will be detected by magnetic sensors placed between the poles of the magnet and data is transmitted to the outside recording device for analysis. The problem occurs when it is necessary to remove the damaged segments of the pipe and replace them with the new ones by welding them to the existing pipelines. It is found that welding rod and arc column are subjected to some kind of force that causes them to deviate from the right position. In this paper, the problem of low quality arc welding during pipeline maintenance due to residual magnetic field on the pipeline caused by MFL inspection device is systematically analyzed to find the root causes and ideal solution of which internal resources are utilized, is attained by using ARIZ (in this paper, magnetic field from welding current is selected). Computer simulation using finite element method and field test are conducted and show satisfactory result for the proposed idea.

  • Reactivity of
           Au/La1-xSrxCr1-yNiyO3-δ
           toward Oxidative Coupling of Methane for C2 and
           C3 Hydrocarbons Production

    • Authors: Hatairat Worraphon, Wisitsree Wiyaratn, Suttichai Assabumrungrat, Navadol Laosiripojana
      Abstract: La0.8Sr0.2Cr0.9Ni0.1O3 (LSCN) perovskite was calcined in hydrogen atmosphere (LSCN-H2) that provides better activity than LSCN-air. The doping of Au (as Au/LSCN-H2) improved the catalyst stability toward oxidativecoupling of methane (OCM) reaction by increasing the resistance of carbon formation on catalyst surface during the reaction. The suitable CH4:O2 ratio appeared to be 2:1, from which 5.8%, 29.9%, 8.1%, and 5.8% of C2H4, C2H6, C3H6, and C3H8 can be produced respectively. Importantly, the addition of CO2 can significantly promote the yield of C3H8 produced, from which the suitable CO2:CH4 ratio was observed to be 1:2 (with or without O2 presenting).
