A lateral reinforcement system for a concrete structure having axially disposed structural bars. The lateral reinforcement system comprises a plurality of reinforcement ties disposed at an inclination to the axially disposed structural bars. A pair of reinforcement ties of the plurality of reinforcement ties is disposed at mirror inclinations to each other. In the pair of reinforcement ties, the reinforcement ties cross each other at diametrically opposite corners of the reinforcement ties at diametrically opposite axially disposed structural bars, such that, a first reinforcement tie of the pair of reinforcement ties crosses from inside of a second reinforcement tie of the pair of reinforcement ties at one structural bar, and the second reinforcement tie crosses from inside of the first reinforcement tie at the diametrically opposite structural bar. The plurality of reinforcement ties forms a three-dimensional interwoven network around the axially disposed structural bars.

Annual Review of Fluid Mechanics | Year: 2014

This review highlights the profound and unexpected ways in which viscosity varying in space and time can affect flow. The most striking manifestations are through alterations of flow stability, as established in model shear flows and industrial applications. Future studies are needed to address the important effect of viscosity stratification in such diverse environments as Earth's core, the Sun, blood vessels, and the re-entry of spacecraft.

Metal silicides are of great interest due to their numerous applications and interesting properties. Here we present a comprehensive theoretical study of structural, electronic and elastic properties of orthorhombic and cubic phases of rhodium silicide (RhSi) within the framework of density functional theory. The calculated lattice constants and internal in-plane atomic parameters are in good agreement with reported experimental values. The average elastic moduli of polycrystalline aggregates and the Debye temperature are obtained from calculated values of the single crystal elastic constants. The calculated directional dependent bulk and the Young's moduli of orthorhombic RhSi along b axis are found to be significantly smaller than those along a and c axes. Our results suggest strong elastic anisotropy in RhSi. © 2012 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

Renewable and Sustainable Energy Reviews | Year: 2015

Availability of cost-competitive biomass conversion technologies plays crucial role for successful realization of biorefinery for sustainable production of fuels and organic chemicals from biomass. The present article provides an outline of opportunities and socio-techno-economic challenges of various biomass processing technologies. The biomass processing technologies were classified into three broad categories: thermochemical, chemical and biochemical. This review article presents an overview of two potential thermochemical conversion processes, gasification and fast pyrolysis, for direct conversion of lignocellulosic biomass. The article further provides a brief review of chemical conversion of triglycerides by transesterification with methanol for production of biodiesel. The highly productive microalgae as an abundant source of triglycerides for biodiesel and various other fuels products were also reviewed. The present article also provides an outline of various steps involved in biochemical conversion of carbohydrates to alcoholic bio-fuels, bio-ethanol and bio-butanols and conversion of natures most abundant aromatic polymer, lignin, to value-added fuels and chemicals. Furthermore, an overview of production of hydrocarbon fuels through various biomass processing technologies such as hydrodeoxygenation of triglycerides, biosynthetic pathways and aqueous phase catalysis in hydrocarbon biorefinery were highlighted. The present article additionally provides economic comparisons of various biomass conversion technologies. © 2014 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

Sustainable production of energy, fuels, organic chemicals and polymers from biomass in an integrated biorefinery is extremely important to reduce enslavement on limited fossil fuels. In the present article, the biomass was classified into four general types based on their origin: energy crops, agricultural residues and waste, forestry waste and residues and industrial and municipal wastes. The article further elucidates the chemistry of various types of biomass used in the biorefinery. The biorefinery was classified into three broad categories based on the chemistry of biomass: triglyceride, sugar and starchy and lignocellulosic. The article further presents a comprehensive outlines of opportunities and recent trends of each type of biorefinery. A brief overview of original and revised list of platform chemicals, their sources from biomass and derivative potentials were also articulated. The article also provides comparisons of different types of biorefinery, broad challenges and availability of biomass. Furthermore, the article provides an overview of hydrocarbon biorefinery for production of hydrocarbon fuels and building block chemicals from biomass. ©2014 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

Wireless Excellence, Indian Institute of Technology Madras and Indian Institute of Technology Hyderabad | Date: 2013-01-18

An Ordered Reduced Set Successive Detector (RSSD) for the V-BLAST spatial multiplexing scheme that uses a general two-dimensional non-uniform set partitioning for different symbols. The detector provides improved diversity and SNR gains at reduced complexity compared to a uniform set partitioning based detector. The detector can be used to reduce the complexity, with a small tradeoff in performance. Further, it is possible to obtain a quasi-ML performance using the disclosed detector at a reduced, yet fixed, complexity.

Systems, methods, and computer-readable medium, are disclosed for transforming user-defined-function invocations in a query-based environment. A user-defined-function (UDF) and a query invoking the UDF are received. The UDF is parsed into a plurality of statements. A first expression tree corresponding to the UDF and a second expression tree corresponding the query are constructed, and merged using an operator to generate a transformed expression. The transformed expression is simplified, using transformation rules, if it is determined that is can be simplified.

The embodiments herein disclose a method and system for interference cancellation in a Heterogeneous Network (HetNet) including a base station serving a User Equipment (UE), and a plurality of neighbor base stations. Further, the method includes sharing a parameter associated with the base station serving the UE and the plurality of neighbor base stations in the HetNet. Further, the method includes determining whether the UE is experiencing interference from the neighbor base station based on the parameters. Further, the method includes coordinating with the base station serving the UE to cancel the level of interference experienced by the UE based on the transmission mode associated with each base station serving the UE and the neighbor base station interfering at the UE. The transmission mode is one of a Single-Input and Multiple-Output (SIMO) and Multiple-Output and Multiple-Output (MIMO) mode.

Embodiment herein provide a method and system of reporting cluster specific CSI feedback by user equipment (UE) to a cloud system. The UE associates with the cloud using a biased association or an unbiased association. In a biased association, a ratio between the highest received power from a Macro BS and a Pico base station is determined by the UE and compared with a threshold (bias). If the ratio is greater than the bias, the UE associates with the Pico BS. The UE reports CSI for a set of dominant Macro BSs and Pico BSs within a cluster. The UE can report the IDs of the BSs which contribute to dominant interference caused by the BSs of neighboring clusters.
