Heat exchangers are thermal systems which are used extensively, have a major role in energy conservation aspect and preventing global warming. This paper is based on reviews of scientific work and provides a state-of-the-art review of second law of thermodynamic analysis of heat exchangers. Initially, the basics of heat exchangers are briefly provided along with second law analysis which also includes two-phase flow analysis and thermoeconomic analysis. Following this, detail literature survey based on performance parameters such as entropy generation, exergy analysis, production and manufacturing irreversibilities (cumulative exergy destruction associated with the production of material and manufacturing of component or assembly of components) and two phase fluid loss of heat exchangers is presented including constructal law applied to analyze heat exchangers. Constructal theory along with second law analysis can be used for the systematic design of heat exchangers. This review highlights the importance of first and second law investigations of heat exchangers leading to energy conservation. © 2014 Elsevier Ltd.

Electroabsorption (E-A) and electrophotoluminescence (E-PL) responses of polymer films of CdSe quantum dots (QDs) incorporated sulfide-substituted poly(1,4-phenylene vinylene) derivative CdSe-S3PPV were measured. The observed Stark shift both in E-A and E-PL responses is likely to be caused by a substantial contribution of change in molecular polarizability (Δᾱ) and change in electric dipole moment (|Δμ|) following photoexcitation. Together with Stark shift, field-induced photoluminescence (PL) quenching and enhancement were observed depending on excitation energy. The quenching of PL of CdSe-S3PPV film is interpreted in terms of an exciton model-a breaking of electron-hole pairs in the presence of electric field. © 2012 American Institute of Physics.

The demand for development of good quality software has seen rapid growth in the last few years. This is leading to increase in the use of the machine learning methods for analyzing and assessing public domain data sets. These methods can be used in developing models for estimating software quality attributes such as fault proneness, maintenance effort, testing effort. Software fault prediction in the early phases of software development can help and guide software practitioners to focus the available testing resources on the weaker areas during the software development. This paper analyses and compares the statistical and six machine learning methods for fault prediction. These methods (Decision Tree, Artificial Neural Network, Cascade Correlation Network, Support Vector Machine, Group Method of Data Handling Method, and Gene Expression Programming) are empirically validated to find the relationship between the static code metrics and the fault proneness of a module. In order to assess and compare the models predicted using the regression and the machine learning methods we used two publicly available data sets AR1 and AR6. We compared the predictive capability of the models using the Area Under the Curve (measured from the Receiver Operating Characteristic (ROC) analysis). The study confirms the predictive capability of the machine learning methods for software fault prediction. The results show that the Area Under the Curve of model predicted using the Decision Tree method is 0.8 and 0.9 (for AR1 and AR6 data sets, respectively) and is a better model than the model predicted using the logistic regression and other machine learning methods. © 2014 Published by Elsevier B.V.

This paper presents a novel Exposure based Sub-Image Histogram Equalization (ESIHE) method for contrast enhancement for low exposure gray scale image. Exposure thresholds are computed to divide the original image into sub-images of different intensity levels. The histogram is also clipped using a threshold value as an average number of gray level occurrences to control enhancement rate. The individual histogram of sub images is equalized independently and finally all sub images are integrated into one complete image for analysis. The simulation results show that ESIHE outperforms other conventional Histogram Equalization (HE) methods in terms of image visual quality, entropy preservation and better contrast enhancement. © 2013 Elsevier B.V.

Biodiesel is a promising fuel for diesel engines in wake of its renewable nature and environmental benefits. Biodiesel can be produced by different pathways; however, glycerol (or glycerin, glycerin) is a valuable by-product which is formed during this process. As mandates are being enforced by different government worlds over, the demand of biodiesel is likely to go up. With increased demand and production of biodiesel, significant quantity of glycerol shall be available. There is an urgent need to find alternative application area of glycerol so that viability of biodiesel industry can be sustained. In the present study, the focus has been made on the various application areas of using surplus glycerol from biodiesel industries to make them more financially attractive. Amongst the different pathways of using glycerol as a source of energy; direct combustion, mixing with agricultural solid wastes and then burning, blending directly or indirectly with other fuels, hydrogen and hydrocarbon production from glycerol, etherification, etc. are prominent one. The requirement, advantages and limitations of each approach have also been evaluated in the study. Combustion of glycerol if not done properly would result in formation of acrolien which is highly toxic in nature and efforts should be made to use glycerol indirectly to produce energy (i.e. all the pathways expect the direct combustion and the solid fuel method). The production of hydrogen from glycerol via APR appears to be the best solution to the disposal problem since the hydrogen yield via APR is highest. Moreover the process occurs at lower pressure and temperature when compared to steam reforming, and it is a single step process. Etherification, tri-acetylisation, and blending have been found to be useful for improving the performance of automotives by facilitating proper and smooth combustion of fuel. © 2012 Elsevier Ltd.

Background: Software fault prediction is the process of developing models that can be used by the software practitioners in the early phases of software development life cycle for detecting faulty constructs such as modules or classes. There are various machine learning techniques used in the past for predicting faults. Method: In this study we perform a systematic review of studies from January 1991 to October 2013 in the literature that use the machine learning techniques for software fault prediction. We assess the performance capability of the machine learning techniques in existing research for software fault prediction. We also compare the performance of the machine learning techniques with the statistical techniques and other machine learning techniques. Further the strengths and weaknesses of machine learning techniques are summarized. Results: In this paper we have identified 64 primary studies and seven categories of the machine learning techniques. The results prove the prediction capability of the machine learning techniques for classifying module/class as fault prone or not fault prone. The models using the machine learning techniques for estimating software fault proneness outperform the traditional statistical models. Conclusion: Based on the results obtained from the systematic review, we conclude that the machine learning techniques have the ability for predicting software fault proneness and can be used by software practitioners and researchers. However, the application of the machine learning techniques in software fault prediction is still limited and more number of studies should be carried out in order to obtain well formed and generalizable results. We provide future guidelines to practitioners and researchers based on the results obtained in this work. © 2014 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.

In this paper we consider a spatially homogenous and anisotropic Bianchi type-V space-time model to investigate the effects of a magnetic field in string cosmology. We assume that the string's direction and magnetic field are along x-axis. The field equations are solved by using the equation of state for a cloud of strings and variable magnetic permeability. We derive exact solutions for three types of strings: (i) Nambu strings, (ii) string model where the sum of energy density and string tension density is zero and (iii) Takabayasi strings. We examine the behaviour of scale factors and other physical parameters with and without magnetic field and it is found that the magnetic field effects the dynamics of the universe at early time. During late time the universe becomes isotropic even in the presence of magnetic field. The universe expands with decelerated rate during early stages of the evolution of the universe but it goes to marginal inflation at late times. © 2013 Springer Science+Business Media New York.

In this paper, we show that the expansion history of the Universe in power-law cosmology essentially depends on two crucial parameters, namely the Hubble constant H 0 and deceleration parameter q. We find the constraints on these parameters from the latest H(z) and SNe Ia data. At 1σ level the constraints from H(z) data are obtained as and kms -1Mpc -1, while the constraints from the Type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia) data are and kms -1Mpc -1. We also perform the joint test using H(z) and SNe Ia data, which yields the constraints and kms -1Mpc -1. The estimates of H 0 are found to be in close agreement with some recent probes carried out in the literature. The analysis reveals that the observational data successfully describe the cosmic acceleration within the framework of power-law cosmology. We find that the power-law cosmology accommodates well the H(z) and SNe Ia data. We also test the power-law cosmology using the primordial nucleosynthesis, which yields the constraints q≳ 0.72 and H 0≲ 41.49kms -1Mpc -1. These constraints are found to be inconsistent with the ones derived from the H(z) and SNe Ia data. We carry out the statefinder analysis, and find that the power-law cosmological models approach the standard Λ cold dark matter (ΛCDM) model as q→-1. Finally, we conclude that despite having several good features power-law cosmology is not a complete package for the cosmological purposes. © 2012 The Author Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society © 2012 RAS.
