It separates inlet high pressure stream of air into two<br>lower pressure streams of cooler temperature at one end and hotter temperature at other end. It is basically of counter flow<br>type and parallel flow type. It has many advantages and wide range of applications, mostly using counter flow owing to<br>better performance than parallel flow. Most of the applications reflect the benefits in terms of performance, energy,<br>compactness or as an alternative to the conventional method. Few applications are highlighted in this paper. Variable<br>temperature system uses vortex tube along with liquid nitrogen cooled heat exchanger to maintain lower temperature as<br>the biochemical samples are prone to change properties in unconditioned environment. In case of high speed machining<br>tools, vortex tube cooling improves the performance and tool life along with better finish of workpiece. Laser cutting<br>system uses vortex tube cooling to minimize heat affected zone. Vortex air coolers are preferred for different industrial<br>applications. The personal air suit uses vortex tube to allow workers to work under adverse conditions for longer hours.<br>Vortex tube refrigeration is alternative way to the conventional refrigeration in some applications.</p> Avdhoot N.

Shukla Copyright (c) 2022 Wed, 27 Apr 2022 00:00:00 -0400 Review on Combustion Chamber Swirlers <p>Swirl flows offer an interesting field of study for<br>aerospace and mechanical engineers in general and for<br>combustion engineers in particular since it involves complex<br>interaction of recirculation and turbulent mixing which aid flame<br>stabilization in combustion systems. Swirling flow generates<br>rotating flows, turbulence and free jet wakes at the downstream<br>of swirler in combustion chamber. So there is complex<br>interaction between pressure gradients and fluid flow. Swirling<br>jets are used as a means of controlling flames in combustion<br>chambers. Swirling flows in both reacting and non- reacting<br>conditions occur in wide range of applications such as gas<br>turbines, marine combustor burners, chemical processing<br>plants, rotary kilns and spray dryers. Swirling jets are used<br>as a means of controlling flames in combustion chambers. This<br>flame stabilization can be achieved by various methods. The<br>most common techniques used in a gas turbine combustor is to<br>stabilize the flame in modern gas turbine combustors is swirl<br>stabilization in which a swirl velocity is imparted to the inlet air<br>using vane swirlers. Such flows have practical applications in<br>many combustion systems, such as industrial furnaces and gas<br>turbine combustors. Air swirlers are widely used in both tubular<br>&amp; annular combustors. Swirler flow has been commonly used for<br>the stabilization of high-intensity combustion. Swirl can reduce<br>combustion lengths by producing higher rates of entrainment of<br>ambient fluid and fast mixing close to exit nozzle and on the<br>boundaries of recirculation zones in strongly swirling zones.</p> Bhavin K.

Cold room is the storage facility<br>where large quantities of products could be stored for<br>longer duration at lower temperature. Cold chain is now<br>recognized as a sunrise sector in India. The current<br>scenario reveals that there is a tremendous scope for the<br>development of cold chain facilities and Cold Rooms form<br>the heart of the cold chain. The cold room like every other<br>refrigerating systems of the same magnitude employs the<br>vapor compression refrigeration cycle. Vapor compression<br>refrigeration is widely used for air conditioning of<br>buildings and automobiles. It is also used in domestic and<br>commercial refrigerators, large-scale warehouses for<br>chilled or frozen storage of foods and meats, refrigerated<br>trucks and railroad cars, and a host of other commercial<br>and industrial services.</p> Darshan Gajdhar Copyright (c) 2022 Wed, 27 Apr 2022 00:00:00 -0400 APPLICATION OF GENETIC ALGORITHM TO OPTIMIZE WORM GEAR DESIGN FOR MINIMUM CENTRE DISTANCE <p>A gear transmission problem is one of the most complex optimization problems because of relationship between different<br>variables. A gear design require the designer to compromise many design variables; i.e. continuous, discrete &amp; integer variables in order to<br>determine best performance of gear set. Numbers of conventional methods are available for solving different types of optimization<br>problems. But due to their complexity and convergence problem these methods are not able to give optimal solution. Therefore<br>researchers are now going to use evolutionary techniques. Genetic Algorithm is one of such technique. A non-conventional algorithm<br>namely Genetic Algorithm is presented for optimization of worm gear mechanism with respect to specified set of constraints. The Genetic<br>Algorithm is an efficient search method which is inspired from Darw in’s concept of selection process to explore a given search space.</p> Hiren V. Patel, Maniya K.

This paper provides a review of all aspects<br>related to pipeline integrity. Assessment of the fatigue strength and burst strength of steel pipeline is essential consideration in the<br>components which are subjected to cyclic loads in service. This paper also presents a fatigue life assessment review of failure of steel<br>pipeline. Failure or deterioration of pipelines takes place by corrosion and fatigue, which later leads to rupture. Stress-life, strain-life, and<br>linear elastic fracture mechanics crack propagation method has shown to be well accepted as a benchmark model of fatigue assessment.<br>It shows that choosing an appropriate and accurate method is important; particularly for quantifying the extent to which the fatigue life is<br>reduced. Good predictions subsequently offer successful designs of pipelines and therefore, any unwanted damage can then be avoided.</p> Jagdish D. Bhakhar, Prof. Mahesh N. Patel, Prof. Chaitanaya K.

Empirical model is<br>used to study the oil churning losses; such model is validated using data available in literature. The oil churning losses appear if the<br>rotating components are partially submerged in an oil bath.In this paper, Gear dimension such as module, pitch diameter, face width and oil<br>churning power loss are optimized and compared with the experimental data in literature. The main objective function is to minimize oil<br>churning power loss and constraints are minimum centre distance, minimum gear modulus and minimum number of teeth, surface<br>compressive stress and bending stress. A gear transmission problem is one of the most complex optimization problems because of<br>relationship between different variables. Therefore researchers are now going to use Non-classical Techniques. Genetic Algorithm is one of<br>such techniques.</p> Janak K. Sangani, Dr. K. D.

Six sigma is defined: as a business process that allows<br>companies to drastically improve their bottom line by designing<br>and monitoring everyday business activities in ways that<br>minimize waste and resources while increasing customer<br>satisfaction by some of its proponents. The fusion of Lean and Six<br>Sigma improvement methods is required because: Lean cannot<br>bring a process under statistical control. Six Sigma alone cannot<br>dramatically improve process speed or reduce invested capital.<br>Both enable the reduction of the cost of complexity. Lean six<br>sigma (LSS) is a business strategy and methodology that<br>increases process performance resulting in enhanced customer<br>satisfaction and improved bottom line results. Six Sigma is<br>usually used to address complex problems for which the solution<br>is unknown. In this paper, the brief review of LSS application in<br>different area. Based on literature, the paper is alienated into<br>conventional approaches such as Lean and Six sigma and recent<br>LSS techniques applied to improve organization performance in<br>terms of quality, through put, producti vity improvement, with<br>enhancing overall production efficiency.</p> Shruti Raval, Darshak Desai, Shashank Thanki Copyright (c) 2022 Wed, 27 Apr 2022 00:00:00 -0400 Application of Fuzzy Logic to Develop a Model for Cable Reeling Drum Parameters <p>For any system, it is important to establish<br>relationship between control parameters and performance<br>parameters .Today many modeling techniques available to<br>establish relationship between performance parameters and<br>control parameters for material handling equipments.<br>Application of fuzzy logic Technique provide a nonfunctional, time saving, free form approach to capture effect<br>of control parameters like Cable diameter ,Cable length,<br>Travel speed etc. on performance parameters like Inner<br>diameter of drum ,Number of teeth of sprocket ,Motor RPM<br>etc. for cable reeling drum.

Ayar Copyright (c) 2022 Wed, 27 Apr 2022 00:00:00 -0400 A Review on Highly Compact Perforated Plate Heat Exchanger for Cryogenic Applications <p>This paper describes a variety of fundamental research of cryogenic perforated plate heat exchanger which works at<br>temperature 123K (-150℃) or below it, also it is most critical component used for separation, purification, liquefaction, refrigeration<br>systems, working w ith different cryogenic gases like helium, hydrogen, neon, nitrogen, oxygen, air etc. Its primary function is “to converse<br>cold” i.e. allow the removal of energy from the compressed incoming gas by transferring energy to the low -pressure cold stream. So, it is<br>alw ays desirable to prevent “heat inleaks” to the system, as it is more difficult to remove energy from the low -temperature regions. Also<br>apart from having a high effectiveness, cryogenic heat exchangers also need to be very compact, i.e. they must accommodate a large<br>amount of surface area in a small volume. This helps in controlling heat exchange with the surroundings by reducing exposed surface area.<br>Perforated plate matrix heat exchanger (MHE) covers advantages of high effectiveness and high degree of compactness together in one<br>unit used for cryogenic applications. This paper deals with the brief review of research articles in chronological development of perforated<br>plate matrix heat exchanger.</p> Patel Vinodkumar Babulal, Nisha V.

In particular, recent advances in the data mining field<br>have lead to increased concerns about privacy. While the<br>topic of privacy has been traditionally studied in the context<br>of cryptography and information hiding, recent emphasis on<br>data mining has lead to renewed interest in the field.<br>A fruitful direction for future data mining research will be the<br>development of techniques that incorporate privacy concerns.<br>Specially, we address the following question. Since the primary<br>task in data mining is the development of models about<br>aggregated data, can we develop accurate models without access<br>to precise information in individual data records? We consider<br>the concrete case of building a decision-tree classier from<br>training data in which the values of individual records have been<br>perturbed. The resulting data records look very different from the<br>original records and the distribution of data values is also very<br>different from the original distribution. While it is not possible to<br>accurately estimate original values in individual data records, we<br>propose a novel reconstruction procedure to accurately estimate<br>the distribution of original data values. By using these<br>reconstructed distributions, we are able to build classifiers whose<br>accuracy is comparable to the accuracy of classifiers built with<br>the original data.</p> Anu Thomas, Jimesh Rana Copyright (c) 2022 Wed, 27 Apr 2022 00:00:00 -0400 An Approach for Improving the Efficiency of Software Team by Continuous Evaluation of Software Development <p>Accurate software cost and schedule estimations are essential specially for large software<br>projects. However, once the required efforts have been estimated, little is done to recalibrate and<br>reducethe uncertainty of the initial estimates. To address this problem,we have developed and<br>used a framework to continuously monitor the software project progress and readjust the<br>estimated effort utilizing the Constructive Cost Model II (COCOMO II) and the Unified Code<br>Count Tool. As a software project progresses, we gain more information about the project itself,<br>which can then be used to assess and re estimate the effort required to complete the project. With<br>more accurate estimations and less uncertainties, the quality and goal of project outcome can be<br>assured within the available resources. The paper thus also provides and analyzes empirical data<br>on how projects evolve within the familiar software “cone of uncertainty.”</p> Arpit Mehta, Yoothika Patel Copyright (c) 2022 Wed, 27 Apr 2022 00:00:00 -0400 COPEMO: A Continuous Project Evaluation Process MOdel <p>-Team synchronization and stabilization are<br>essential especially for large software projects. However,<br>often little is done to assess and reduce the uncertainties<br>and knowledge gaps that exist within the project. As the<br>project progresses through its life cycle, the team can gain<br>more information about the project and team’s capabilities.<br>These necessary data can be obtained through performing<br>assessments on the team and project. As these<br>assessments procedures are often complex, discouraging,<br>and difficult to analyze, an effective framew ork and tool<br>support can greatly enhance the process. Hence, with<br>improved assessment method software project teams can<br>quickly gather the necessary data, determine the actions to<br>improve performance, and result in an improved project<br>outcome in the end. The A COntinious Project Evaluation<br>Process MOdel (COPEPMO) is a framework developed to<br>effectively improve team synchronization and stabilization<br>as well as project effort estimation and scoping by enabling<br>software development teams to quickly track project<br>progress, continuously assess team performance, and<br>make adjustments to the project estimates as necessary.</p> Arpit Mehta, Hitesh Vaghela Copyright (c) 2022 Wed, 27 Apr 2022 00:00:00 -0400 DETECTION Background Subtraction Technique As Review <p>This paper presents an approach to background subtraction based on rectangular regions (blocks). The general principle is to<br>successively divide the image into blocks and detect foreground pixels based on the colour histogram and the variance between pixels<br>of the blocks. Then, the classic Gaussian Mixture background subtraction method is applied to refine the detected foreground. Results<br>show that this approach reduces false positives by filtering noise coming from small motion as it is based on groups of pixels instead of<br>on individual pixels.</p> Ms.Bhagyashri A.

It<br>is a nonlinear control method that alters the dynamics of a<br>nonlinear system by application of a high-frequency switching<br>control. The state-feedback control law is not a continuous<br>function of time. It switches from one continuous structure to<br>another based on the current position in the state space. Hence,<br>sliding mode control is a variable structure control method. The<br>multiple control structures are designed so that trajectories<br>always move toward a switching condition, and so the ultimate<br>trajectory will not exist entirely within one control structure.<br>Instead, the ultimate trajectory will slide along the boundaries of<br>the control structures. The motion of the system as it slides along<br>these boundaries is called a sliding mode and the geometrical<br>locus consisting of the boundaries is called the sliding (hyper)<br>surface.

Many problems solve the using of individual<br>distribution generation. A better way to realize the<br>emerging potential of distributed generation is to take<br>a system approach which views generation and<br>associated loads as a subsystem or a “micro-grid”.<br>The micro-grids are new concepts of electrical power<br>consist of Distribution Generation, Renewable<br>Energy Resources and Sensitive as well as Nonsensitive load. These sources are operating in parallel<br>to the grid and it can operate in islanding mode.<br>During the disturbances the generation and load are<br>not match then the load and generation separating<br>islanding mode without harming the transmission line<br>or grid. Intentional islanding describes the condition<br>in which a micro-grid or a portion of the power grid,<br>which consists of a load and a distributed generation<br>system, is isolated from the grid system. In this<br>situation, it is important for the micro-grid to<br>continue to provide adequate power to the load.<br>Under normal operation, each DG inverter system in<br>the micro-grid usually works in constant current<br>control mode in order to provide a preset power to<br>the main grid. When the micro-grid is isolate from<br>the main grid, each DG inverter system must detect<br>this islanding situation and must switch to a voltage<br>control mode. In this mode, the micro-grid will<br>provide a constant voltage to the local load. This<br>paper describes a control strategy that is used to<br>implement grid-connected and intentional-islanding<br>operations of distributed power generation. The<br>control strategies have proven their robustness and<br>effectiveness in controlling the operation of microgrid while maintaining system stability.</p> Sajid Vorha , Prof. I.A.

Of<br>this various waste materials, plastic waste and municipal solid<br>waste are of great concern. On the other side, the road traffic is<br>increasing, traffic intensity is increasing. The load bearing<br>capacities of the road are to be increased. Plastic waste can be<br>used as a coating over aggregate and this coated stone can be<br>used for road construction. The mix polymer coated aggregate<br>have shown higher strength. Use of this mix for road<br>construction helps to use plastics waste.

Estimation of the<br>amount of sediment material w hich a specific flow can carry is one of the major issues of sedimentation research. Unit stream power is defined as the<br>time rate of potential energy per unit weight of water, and is found to be the dominant factor in the determination of total sediment concentration being<br>carried by the (Yang, 1972). Yang’s (1979) unit stream power approach for total load sediment transport function is applied to test the predictability of<br>total sediment transport rate by using flume data sets of Samaga et al (1986), Willis et al (1972) and river data set of Middle Loup river of Hubbel et al<br>(1959). The performance of the Yang’s sediment transport function for different data sets has been evaluated by finding statistical parameters, such as<br>root mean square error (RMSE), discrepancy ratio and inequality coefficient. From the evaluation, it is observed that the Yang (1979) total load function<br>under predicts the sediment transport rate for the three mixtures M1, M2, M3 and predicts well for mixture M4 of Samaga data set giving good result<br>compared to other mixtures. For both Willis et al (1972) data set and the river data of Hubbel et al (1959) total load function of Yang (1979), both under<br>predicts as well as over predicts sometimes.Yang total load equation gives better results for samaga et al (1986) data sets for the four mixture.</p> H.
