E-wastes consist of discard of electronic appliances such as computers, mobiles and telephones. Major producers of e-wastes are USA, China, Europe and Australia and the total estimate of these products is about 25 million tonnes per year. These countries are forced to adopt the "reuse" procedure to save environment and money flow. However certain e-wastes are having their self-life, which cannot be reuse. Hence, it is essential to recycle or disposal of these with suitable precautions. Uncontrolled disposal and recycling activities generate and release high toxic metals such as Hg, Pb, Cd, Cr, Cr(IV), Co, Cu, Ni, and Zn. These also release high concentrations of different types of flame retardants such as PolyBrominated Diphenyl Ethers (PBDEs), Poly-Chlorinated Biphenyls (PCBs) and OrganoChlorine Pesticides (OCPs). In this current research paper, potential environmental health consequences of these toxic metals and organo compounds are described.The selection of this topic is to evaluate electronic waste (e-waste) pollution and the toxicsubstances present in the e-waste and their threats to human health. Due to technologyadvancement and development makes new innovative electronic products which areaffordable rather repair outdated equipment. It is evident that disposal of electronicproducts is due to production of new ones. This article mainly focuses on overview ofIndia's current e-waste scenario and their problems in recycling and disposal of e-waste.The tools for e-waste management like life cycle assessment (LCA), material flowanalysis (MFA) have been developed to manage ewastes especially in developedcountries. By developing eco-design devices and collecting e-waste and safe handlingthe disposal brings clean environment. There is no exact tool to solve this issue. Source

A linear stability analysis of convection in viscoelastic liquids with temperature-dependent viscosity is studied using normal modes and Galerkin method. Stationary convection is shown to be the preferred mode of instability when the ratio of strain retardation parameter to stress relaxation parameter is greater than unity. When the ratio is less than unity then the possibility of oscillatory convection is shown to arise. Oscillatory convection is studied numerically for Rivlin-Ericksen, Maxwell and Jeffreys liquids by considering free-free, rigid-rigid and rigid-free isothermal/adiabatic boundaries. The effect of variable viscosity parameter is shown to destabilize the system. The problem reveals the stabilizing nature of strain retardation parameter and destabilizing nature of stress relaxation parameter, on the onset of convection. The Maxwell liquids are found to be more unstable than the one subscribing to Jeffreys description whereas the Rivlin-Ericksen liquid is comparatively more stable. Free-free adiabatic boundary combination is found to give rise to a most unstable system, whereas the rigid isothermal rigid adiabatic combination gives rise to a most stable system. The problem has applications in non-isothermal systems having viscoelastic liquids as working media. © 2009 Elsevier Masson SAS. All rights reserved. Source

Visual and auditory analysis of respiratory sound signals promises improved detection of certain types of lung diseases. LabVIEW software was used to design a system that monitors the respiratory activity of the patient. The program developed calculates the respiratory rate, displays the time expanded waveform of the lung sound, and computes the fast Fourier transform and short-time Fourier transform to present the power spectrum and spectrogram respectively. These parameters are transmitted synchronously to the remote station using the Internet for online monitoring of the patient. © 2011 Sahgal, publisher and licensee Dove Medical Press Ltd. Source

The present work is focused on the influence of cutting speed, feed rate and depth of cut on the delamination damage and surface roughness on Glass Fiber Reinforced Polymeric composite material (GFRP) during end milling. Taguchi design method is employed to investigate the machining characteristics of GFRP. From the results of ANOVA, it is concluded that cutting speed and depth of cut are the most significant factors affecting the responses, their contribution in an order of 26.84% and 40.44% respectively. Confirmatory experiments show that 5.052μm for surface roughness and 1.682 delamination damage to validate the used approach after conducting with optimal setting of process parameters. Finally, artificial neural network has been applied to compare the predicted values with the experimental values, the deviations are found in the range of 3.7%, it shows good agreement between the predictive model results and the experimental measurements. © 2013 The Authors.

In this paper, an economic order quantity model for deteriorating items with time discounting has been developed for varying demand pattern over a fixed planning horizon. Optimal solutions with complete backlogging and without backlogging are established and has proven that the total variable cost is convex. The main contribution of this paper is based on the assumption of the demand which is the linear function of the instantaneous stock level I(t). In this paper, a new type of demand has been considered which will help us to obtain qualitative insights without much analytical complexity. Optimal solutions of the proposed models are derived and effects of deterioration on the inventory replenishment policies are studied with the help of numerical examples. © 2011 Springer-Verlag London Limited.
