In recent years, the interest of scientists and engineers has turned over on utilizing all plant fibers as effectively and economically as possible to produce good quality fiber-reinforced polymer composites for structural, building, and other needs. It is because of the high availability of the natural resources in this green world. This has led to the development of alternative materials instead of conventional or man-made materials. Among the various natural fibers, roselle fibers were used traditionally in age-old applications in the form of the high-strength ropes and floor mats etc. It is of particular interest because its composites have high tensile strength as in jute, kenafandhemp, besides having moderate impact strength properties compared with other natural fibers. This paper reviews the research published in the field of natural fiber-reinforced polymer composites, with special reference to the effect of moisture absorption and alkali treatment on the mechanical properties. However, the reviews were extended to the machinability and the application of the soft computing technique for prediction and optimization of mechanical properties and fabrication parameters of natural fiber-reinforced composites for the development of roselle fiber polyester composite. © Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.

Mechanical properties of coir-polyester composites filled with aluminium oxide and calcium carbonate particles have been evaluated. As the mechanical properties of coir-polyester composites mainly depend upon the fibre length, fibre diameter and filler content, the present study deals with the prediction of mechanical properties using artificial neural network and determination of optimum fibre parameters using response surface methodology algorithms. The particles filled coir-polyester composites exhibit better values of tensile strength, flexural strength, impact strength and abrasion loss properties of 21.39 MPa, 79 MPa, 37.28 kJ/m2 and 570 mm3 for 42.41 mm fibre length, 0.25mm fibre diameter and 2.5% filler content respectively.

The present work is an attempt to modify the conventional glass preparation technique to make it suitable for developing high quality nanoglasses for technical applications. Lead oxide doped silicate glass systems (PbO-SiO2) were prepared by employing three different morphological combinations of the precursor materials. The bulk glass (BB) was prepared using both the precursors of PbO and SiO2 in bulk phases. The nanoglass (NB) was synthesized by doping PbO nanoparticles into the bulk phase SiO2 matrix. In the sol-gel glass (NN) both PbO and SiO2 precursors were in the nanophases. Conventional melt quenching technique was also used to obtain the glasses in their final rigid form. XRD, FESEM, FTIR, UV–vis DRS and PL were used to characterize the physical properties of the three glasses. A comparative study of the results indicated the superiority of the NB and NN glasses in certain desired aspects over the BB glass. © 2016 Elsevier GmbH

With the increasing threat to environment and the fast depleting fossil fuel resources, hybrid power systems consisting of two or more renewable energy sources such as solar PV, wind, biomass, ocean thermal-with or without the back up of diesel generator have come to the forefront. These hybrid systems are normally integrated with battery banks for total reliability; such systems have brought about better quality of life in remote areas of developing economics. The remote areas in the state of Tamil Nadu in India possess excellent renewable energy sources. These areas fall under different climatic zones, are sparsely populated and are in the process of development. Though these areas are connected to the grid, Tamil Nadu grid is not stable; it is currently experiencing 40% short fall in generation. Thus grid power is available to these remote areas only for 10 h a day and even when available, there are voltage frequency problems. This paper analyses the economic feasibility of installing and operating hybrid systems in these areas. The areas are divided into different climatic zones and the hybrid system economy is analyzed for each climatic zone on the basis of NPC (net present cost), consumption of diesel and renewable fraction for all climate zones. The analysis indicates that the interior climatic zone - the area would be the optimum climatic zone to install HPS PV/diesel. The sensitivity analysis proves that the NPC of such a system can be reduced. It is suggested that due to high initial cost, government subsidy is necessary to adopt the system on a large scale. Such a profit will encourage development of renewable energy utilization and bring about rapid development of these remote areas. © 2014 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.

The renewable energy potential of coastal areas of Tamil Nadu, India ranks along with the utmost in the world. This study proposes optimization and cost of energy of different hybrid renewable energy system to power a health clinic in that building. The National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) optimization computer model for distributed power, "HOMER," is used to estimate the optimization and its cost of energy. The implementation of RE systems to supply Rural Health Clinics will contribute to reduce both electricity generation cost and to reduce the consumption of fuel while improving health care and quality of life in these isolated coastal regions. We conclude that using the PV+Wind+Diesel+Battery system for these types of applications in justified on technical and economic grounds. The experimental results show that the least cost of energy at Rs 5.00/KWh, is obtained from above said system and also experiment result shows that the COE decreases with 0% of interest. It is noted, that the PV+Wind+Diesel+Battery hybrid system shows the lowest COE and high amount of Renewable energy. © Maxwell Scientific Organization, 2014.

The present work explores the impact of scattering in carrier transport of near-ballistic SiNW MOSFET. For the first time, a scattered SiNW MOSFET model is revealed which includes the effects of optical phonon emission, elastic scattering, surface roughness scattering and random discrete dopants. Impact of above mentioned combined scatterings in the device limits electron mobility which makes a remarkable decrease in device current and transconductance compared with our previous model and Natori's Ballistic transport model. This work discusses the detailed behavior of analog parameters like Transconductance (gm), Transconductance generation factor (gm/Id) and Early Voltage (VA). The proposed model has been validated by comparing the analytical results with the TCAD simulation results and it shows the good agreement.

Web Content extraction is the task of extracting structured information from unstructured and semi-structured machine-readable documents. In most of the cases this activity concerns processing human language texts by means of natural language processing (NLP). Recent activities in multimedia document processing like automatic annotation and content extraction out of images and audio, video could be seen as information extraction. Similarly, information retrieval is the process which is based on user's query. The retrieved information is to be extracted using the web content extraction concept. The Challenges for this type of web page content extraction is increasing now-a-days. In this work, we study the problem of automatically extracting the contents from the web pages. Many more researches have been done to address this problem. The existing approaches have some limitations such as that, it has no sufficient power to deal with the large number of web pages and also that they are web-page-programming- language(HTML) dependent. Our proposed work is to overcome the limitations of the existing system. This work deals with information retrieval process in which the Vision based approach is applied, which helps to extract both images and text from the web pages. In fact most of researches show that when a page is presented to the user, the spatial and visual features play a very important role because they help the user to unconsciously divide the webpage into several semantic parts. Hence, proposed work focus on the primary visual features of a web page. The extraction is carried out on the basis of these features. This approach can gain a better performance when compared with other traditional methods. © 2012 IEEE.

In diesel engines, NOx formation is a highly temperature dependent phenomenon and takes place when the temperature in the combustion chamber exceeds 2000 K. Therefore in order to reduce NOx emissions in the exhaust, it is necessary to keep peak combustion temperatures under control. One simple way of reducing the NOx emission of a diesel engine is exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) method. A heat exchanger arrangement is provided for obtaining different EGR methods. The performance parameters were studied with and without exhaust gas recirculation of different methods with 2 litre per minute to 8 litre per minute of EGR. The recycled exhaust gas lowers the oxygen concentration in the combustion chamber and increases the temperature of intake charge which lowers the flame temperature and leads to lower NOx formation. Compression ratio is one of the important parameters which influence the performance of the Direct Injection Diesel engine. The main aim of this work is to carry out experimental investigation to establish the performance and emission of variable compression ratio diesel engine using different quantities of partly cold EGR on exhaust gas temperatures. The Effect of EGR is which in turn reduces the NOx and increases the performance characteristics at the compression ratio of 17-1. © 2013 IEEE.
