Tool geometry selection and its optimization are complex tasks involving many considerations, since the geometries chosen will have individual influence and combined influence along with the other values on the machining process. In this investigation, geometrical parameters of cutting tool insert such as insert shape (including angle of cutting edge), relief angle and nose radius are chosen for analysis maintaining the machining parameters constant. Experiments are designed using Taguchi's design of experiment and the output quality characteristics such as flank wear, surface roughness and material removal rate (MRR) are analyzed using signal-to-noise ratio and analysis of variance. For three parameters, varied through three levels, a suitable L9 orthogonal array is chosen. Nine different ISO-designated cutting tool inserts of various shapes, relief angle and nose radius are used in this analysis. From the experimental results, it is found that cutting insert shape is the most significant factor contributing by 45.27 % followed by nose radius by 36.37 % and relief angle by 5.28 % toward the response. A confirmation experiment and finite element analysis are performed for the optimal geometrical parameters. From the investigation, considerable improvement in the performance of cutting tool insert is observed. © 2014 King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals.

Semantic similarity is an essential concept that widen across various fields such as artificial intelligence, natural language processing, information retrieval, relation extraction, document clustering and automatic data extraction. The study proposed in this paper focus on semantic similarity and counter measure on question answering task. Despite the usefulness of semantic similarity in these applications, finding the exact meaning between the words from question and answer pair has become a major challenge in question answering system. To recognize various relationships those exist between question and answer pair, measuring semantically is essential. We present study using a match maker algorithm for similarity measurement between question-answer pair. The study compares similarity measurement using match maker algorithm as against semantic similarity measure on Miller-Charles bench marked data set. This paper present study about different types of algorithm used to measure the semantic similarity between the words and those result compare with match maker algorithm. The experiments on real datasets shows matchmaker algorithm works better than web-based semantic similarity measure. © 2012 IEEE.

Vanadium pentoxide thin films of various thicknesses have been prepared by sol-gel spin coating method on glass and conducting substrates. X-ray diffraction analysis reveals crystalline nature for the 6-12 layered films (170-310 nm). The crystalline films indicate a preferential orientation of the crystallites along the (200) plane. FTIR studies of the V2O 5 xerogel show the presence of V-O-V and V= O bond confirming the formation of V2O5. The scanning electron microscope images reveal formation of nanostructures in the 6-12 layered films. Optical absorption studies indicate a band gap of 2.2-2.5 eV. Pseudocapacitance behaviour of the V2O5 films was studied using cyclic voltammetric technique and impedance analysis. V2O5 films of thickness 202 nm (8 layers) exhibit a specific capacitance of 346 F/g at a scan rate of 5 mV/s. © 2013 Copyright Taylor and Francis Group, LLC.

Interesting thin film electrodes of nickel doped vanadium pentoxide with different levels of doping (2.5-10 wt.%) are prepared on FTO and glass substrate at 300 C using sol-gel spin coating method. The structural and morphological studies are made to understand the nature of the surface of the thin films. The electrochemical characteristics have been investigated through cyclic voltammetry and ac impedance spectroscopy measurements. The doping of nickel with β-V2O5 has led to enhanced intercalation and deintercalation of ions. β-V2O5 films with 5 wt.% of Ni exhibit the maximum specific capacitance of 417 F/g at a scan rate of 5 mV/s, with a good cyclic stability making it a promising candidate for supercapacitor application. © 2013 Elsevier Ltd.

In this work, effect of machining parameters cutting speed, feed rate and depth of cut, geometrical parameters cutting insert shape, relief angle and nose radius were investigated and optimized using Taguchi based grey relational analysis. 18 ISO designated uncoated cemented carbide inserts of different geometries were used to turn practically used automotive axles to study the influence of variation in carbide inserts geometry. Performance measures viz., flank wear, surface roughness and material removal rate (MRR) were optimized using grey relational grade, based on the experiments designed using Taguchi's Design of Experiments (DoE). A weighted grey relational grade is calculated to minimize flank wear and surface roughness and to maximize MRR. Analysis of variance shows that cutting insert shape is the prominent parameter followed by feed rate and depth of cut that contributes towards output responses. An experiment conducted with identified optimum condition shows a lower flank wear and surface roughness with higher MRR. The confirmation results obtained are confirmed by calculating confidence interval, which lies within the width of the interval. ©2014 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

This paper focuses on the experimental investigation and analysis of temperature generated at the cutting zone during machining and the wear of cutting insert at the flank face and the relationship between these parameters. Uncoated cemented carbide inserts of different geometries are used to turn AISI 1045 steel. Three levels of cutting insert geometries cutting insert shape (included angle), relief angle and nose radius are chosen. Taguchi's design of experiments (DoE) is used to design the experiments and using signal-to-noise (S/N) ratio, the control parameters are analyzed, showing a correlation between the two responses. Analysis of variance is performed to determine the most significant factor over the responses and empirical models are developed for predicting the responses using multiple linear regression models. Cutting zone temperature is mostly influenced by nose radius followed by cutting insert shape and for flank wear the significance of cutting insert shape is more, followed by nose radius. Confirmation experiment performed with optimum cutting insert geometry shows a reduction in cutting zone temperature and flank wear.

An observer controller for a buck converter is presented. A state feedback gain matrix is derived in order to achieve the stability of the converter and to ensure the robustness of the controller. A load estimator is designed to estimate the unmeasurable variables and to obtain the zero output voltage error. A pulse-width modulation scheme is adopted to obtain the output voltage regulation. In order to improve the transitory response and dynamic constancy of the converter, the controller parameters are designed based on the current mode control. The design is evaluated and verified using MATLAB/Simulink. An experimental set-up is done to evaluate the controller platform. © TUBITAK.

Nowadays, the energy recruitment increased day-today life. The energy usage can be reduced by means storing or recycle process. This work is focused on developing ternary eutectic mixture based on organic compound fatty acid like capric-myristic-palmitic acid in the mass ratio of 64.8:22.6:12.6 and optimize their thermal property by inorganic compound like exfoliated graphite (CA-MA-PA/xG) composites as phase change material (PCM) for energy storage. In this process xG was prepared from flake graphite, initially the graphite has undergone a carburization process for increase carbon content, then in a second step carburized graphite were undergone exfoliation with the addition of potassium permanganate and nitric acid in a ratio of 1:1:2 were done in an open atmosphere under roof of short length focusing by a Fresnel lens. The exfoliation of graphite was produced rapidly and efficiently within 3min. The xG were dispersed into CA-MA-PA under the assistance of high speed ultra-sonication in the mass ratio of 5% and 10%. The structural, thermal energy storage properties, thermal stability and thermal conductivity of novel composite (CA-MA-PA/xG) PCM was investigated. The thermal conductivity and thermal energy storage property of composite PCM when doped with 10% of xG were increased from 0.149W/mK to 0.180W/mK which showed increased about 20.8%. TG analysis tests revealed that the prepared CA-MA-PA/xG composite PCM has a high thermal stability in the working temperature range. The thermal energy storage for CA-MA-PA/xG (Tm=17.1°C; δHm=142.2J/g) for melting, (Tf=9.7°C; δHf=139.5J/g) for freezing respectively, for 90:10. The prepared CA-MA-PA/xG composite as PCM have a great potential application for low thermal energy storage. © 2015 Elsevier Ltd.
