  • PSO-ANN’s based suspended sediment concentration in Ksob basin,

    • Abstract: Suspended sediment concentration estimation has a major influence on river basin planning and management. Prediction of such parameter with artificial neural network (ANN) has shown its performance, because of this, Back Propagation Neural Network model trained with particle swarm optimization (PSO) is used to forecast the daily sediment concentration for Ksob river, Tebessa using 22 years d...

  • Relocation of source of sporadic production using genetic algorithm in
           distribution network

    • Abstract: Today, due to the development of distribution systems and increase of demand and load, the use of the source of scattered production has developed. The establishment of the installation place and the size of the source of scattered production decrease network loss, lead to best action of network as well as the recovery of the voltage profile. In this article, we use the genetic algorithm for...

  • Geothermal Energy

    • Abstract: The term Geothermal originates from two Greek words GEO and THERM. The Greek word geo means the earth whilst their word for therm means heat from the earth. Geothermal energy is energy derived from the heat of the earth. The earths centre is a distance of approximately 4000 miles and is so hot that it is molten. Temperatures are understood to be at least 5000C. Heat from the centre of the ea...

  • Applications of intelligent multi-agent systems for smart distribution

    • Abstract: Multi-agent systems (MAS) can be applied to service restoration planning of distribution systems. The main purpose of service restoration planning is to restore as many customers as possible. In this paper, a MAS-based service restoration planner with a Genetic Algorithm (GA) is developed to solve group and zone service restoration problems in power distribution systems. Intelligent software...

  • New technique based on uterine electromyography nonlinearity for preterm
           delivery detection

    • Abstract: Detecting uterine electromyography (EMG) signals can yield a promising approach to determine and take actions to prevent preterm deliveries. This paper objective is to predict this risk using such uterine signals. Previous classification studies have used only linear signal processing which depends on the spectral characteristics of the uterine EMG signals that did not give clinically accept...

  • Analysis and parametric optimization of flux cored arc welding process for
           IS 2062 mild steel plates using Taguchi method and utility concept

    • Abstract: Optimization of flux cored arc welding (FCAW) process parameters were carried out to obtain optimum weld bead geometry in mild steel plates of IS 2062 by using an alternate Taguchi method. Design of experiments based on multi-objective Taguchi approach was employed for development of mathematical model correlating important process parameters like welding voltage (V), welding current (I), st...

  • Performance of reactive powder concrete slabs with different curing

    • Abstract: In this paper, the material performance of Reactive Powder Concrete (RPC) with two different curing conditions, water-curing of 25°C and heat-treatment of 90°C and 95% relative humidity was experimentally studied. An experimental investigation is carried out to study the influence of using steel fiber and heat-treatment on RPC slab specimens. All the slabs are simply supported along the four...

  • Effect of immersion speed on the mechanical properties and micro-structure
           of oil quenched AISI 1020 steel

    • Abstract: Steel is one of the most important commodities in the engineering world due to its usefulness and availability. Its application is wider than any other metal, ranging from domestic use in the forms of utensils and many more to its use in construction and manufacturing industries. The wide range of application of steel in engineering practices has prompted the desire to increase certain mecha...

  • Effect of battery effluent on plasticity and swelling characteristics of
           expansive soil

    • Abstract: Ground pollution is perpetuated by humans due to many reasons. Industrial activity is necessary for the socio-economic progress of a country, but at the same time, it generates large amount of solid and liquid wastes. Among various means available, disposal through land is simple and widely used. All types of pollution have either direct or indirect effect on soil properties. Behaviour of an...

  • 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...
