Despite significant progress having been made in the study of flame retardancy of cellulosic building materials, the quest to find the ideal flame retardant material still continues. This review paper explores various options to substitute halogenated flame retardants by halogen-free alternatives in green building materials. Conventional flame retardants do not chemically react with cellulosic building materials such as bamboo. Owing to this, they remain an extraneous part of the substrate and could easily leach out due to various factors leading to low efficiency of the flame-retardant action. Durability of flame retardancy can be ensured by applying an additive that would chemically react with at least one of the ingredients of the green building material so that the flame retardant would remain an inherent part of the substrate. This paper also describes the reaction mechanisms of various treatment methodologies for ensuring the efficacious actions of non-halogenated flame retardants in green building materials such as wood and bamboo. © The Author(s) 2013 Reprints and permissions: sagepub.co.uk/journalsPermissions.nav.

This paper describes the origins and history of accreditation of technical education programs in India. Beginning with the ISTE efforts circa 1985, the NBA was conceived as a constituent Board of the AICTE in September 1994. This followed the commitments in the National Policy on Education (1986) and the subsequent Program of Action. This Paper also describes the parallel Manyatha Initiative and a proposal for an Asian Accreditation Accord. The initial institutional and faculty response to Accreditation is briefly described. The positive consequences of Accreditation in India, and some recent initiatives of NBA to align with the Washington Accord, as well as a Bill pending in the Parliament to integrate Accreditation of Technical Education programs with other Higher Education programs are highlighted. © 2011 IEEE.

Consumer satisfaction and consumer protection are the main challenging issues to modern day marketing. Consumer Protection offers business to re-examine its marketing policies and programmes for meeting the ever growing needs of consumer welfare. The present study has been undertaken to examine the Consumer Protection movement in India. © 2014 IEEE. Source

In emergency situations, finding suitable route to reach destination is critical issue now a days. Traditional shortest path cannot always travel in minimum time because of several factors such as traffic conditions, road width, mass density etc. Hence there is need to find another path to reach destination in minimum travel time. The objective of current research is to find a method which considers major travel time delay factors and calculates optimal path for given traffic conditions. Methodology includes identifying travel time delay factors and obtaining overall road weight depicting real traffic conditions at that time. Route with least travel time is obtained by applying dijkstra's algorithm on weighted road network. Analytical hierarchical processing (AHP) is used to compare seven delay factors and to obtain overall weight of each factor. Actual distance is modified according to weight obtained for road length. Results obtained from emergency routing system showed that optimal path obtained by modified routing method takes less time to reach destination than traditional shortest path routing. © 2013 Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.

The mobile and it is applications are hungry for high level of Quality of Service (QoS), especially in the mobile commerce. QoS is considered as a major issue in the mobile, where data loss, corruption, data hacking may result in big money loss. In addition to the basic QoS some customers ask to preserve confidentiality which makes it more complicated and may result in higher delay time. The proposed algorithm is a new encryption technique that allows users to choose using new different types of key for each single data. The encryption key is flexible in length, the plain text is flexible in size, and the encryption process is very simple, easy to initiate and complex to regenerate. These properties results in better encryption delay while maintaining confidentiality. Copyright © 2011 ACM. Source
