  • Mass and color kinetics of foamed and non foamed grape concentrate during
           convective drying process: A comparative study

    • Abstract: Experiments were conducted on drying of grape concentrate to form leather by using convective and foam mat drying process. Mass and color degradation kinetics of both non foamed and foamed grape concentrate were studied at selected temperatures (55, 65 and 75°C) at constant drying bed thickness of 5 mm. The results indicated that the drying took place in falling rate period where as higher d...

  • Impact of industrial effluents on water quality of Kali river in different
           locations of Meerut, India

    • Abstract: Water covers approximately 70.9% of earth’s surface and is a vital source for all known forms of life. The study highlights the pernicious elements present in water of Kali River. Various physico-chemical parameters, like Biological Oxygen Demand (BOD), Total Dissolved Solids (TDS), Total hardness, Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD), pH, Calcium, Magnesium, Chloride, and Sulphate were undertaken d...

  • Parameter optimization of electrical discharge machining process by using
           Taguchi approach

    • Abstract: Electrical discharge machining (EDM) is one of the most extensively used non-traditional material removal processes for difficult-to-cut materials. The full potential of the EDM process has not yet been exploited due to its complicated discharge mechanism. Though a lot of research has been done to improve the process performance, optimal selection of process parameters for the best performan...

  • Investigation of self-similar nature of video streaming traffic in
           corporate network

    • Abstract: In this work, a model of the corporate network had been developed, simulated and implemented using an optimized network engineering tool in a simulation area of 1.5 × 1.5 km enterprise topology network to stream video between each other. Total of 14,670 video traffic (traffic load) is streamed from different sources and destinations at random. The video streaming traffic is monitored, analyz...

  • Effect of Argon plasma and ion beam on the morphology and wettability of
           polyethylene terephthalate (PET)

    • Abstract: Plasma and ion beams are considered tools that can improve existing materials or create new materials. Their technology is widely used to alter the surface properties of polymers without affecting their bulk properties. The treated polymers have found various applications in microelectronics, biomedical and chemical industries. In this work, the use of Argon plasma and Argon ions produced fr...

  • Computational screening of ionic liquids as solvents for reprocessing of
           spent nuclear fuel

    • Abstract: COSMO-RS method was used in screening 2106 ionic liquids as alternate solvents to volatile n-dodecane used in PUREX. The distribution coefficients of uranylnitrate in ionic liquids/aqueous nitric acid biphasic system and the solubility of the ionic liquids in water were determined using COSMO-RS. Seventeen ionic liquids based on tetrafluoroborate BF4, were the most hydrophobic than others sc...

  • Evaluation of bandwidth performance in a corporate network by using
           simulation model

    • Abstract: In this work a corporate network model consists of two separate buildings with four departments on different virtual local area network (VLAN) for the security purpose had been developed. The implementation was achieved using OPNET technology which really helped to reveal the traffic characteristics of network just like in a real life network. The central idea of this work is focused on the ...

  • A comparative study of meta-heuristics for identical parallel machines

    • Abstract:   This paper considers the scheduling problem of minimizing the weighted number of early and tardy jobs on identical parallel machines, Pm ∑wj(Uj + Vj). This problem is known to be NP complete and finding an optimal solution is unlikely. Six meta-heuristics including hybrids are proposed for solving the problem. The meta-heuristics considered are genetic algorithm, particle swarm optimi...

  • Responses application to monitor and predict crude oil distillation rate
           using pneumatic control system on a furnace

    • Abstract:   In this paper, mathematical model were developed to evaluate the different types of responses for monitoring and predicting the furnace output temperature of crude oil at various time intervals. Result obtain reveals increase in furnace output temperature with increase in coefficient of time for different input signal at constant time. Similarly, as the time increases, it is observed t...

  • Simulation of a sachet water processing plant using an analogous
           electrical model

    • Abstract:   This paper presents an electrical model for studying the process behaviour of a sachet water production plant. In this model, the mechanical components of the plant such as the connecting pipes, the water tanks and the water filter were represented by resistors, capacitors and an inductor, respectively. A state equation was developed as a mathematical model of the electrical circuit. I...
