The development of a new four node 24 degree of freedom bilinear degenerated shell element is presented for the analysis of shell structures. The present finite element formulation considers the assumed covariant transverse shear strains to avoid the shear locking problem and the assumed covariant membrane strains, which are separated from covariant in-plane strains, to overcome the membrane locking problem. The formulation also includes the deviation of the normal torsional rotation of the mid surface in the governing equation. This element is free from serious shear and membrane locking problems and undesirable spurious kinematic deformation modes. The element is tested for rigid body modes and distorted edges to meet the patch test requirements. The versatility and accuracy of this new degenerated shell element is demonstrated by solving several numerical examples for thick and thin plates. © 2015 World Scientific Publishing Company.

Key Management is an important challenging issue in wireless sensor networks to provide the confidentiality for the sensitive data which is sensed by the sensors from various fields. There are so many resource constraints for wireless sensor networks, implementing key management scheme in WSN. In general many key management schemes are proposed for Computer Networks like ECC, Diffie-Hellman, RSA and public key based schemes, but all are not suitable for wireless sensor networks. WSNS are suitable for many applications like Smart homes, Automation, Vehicular traffic management, Habitat Monitoring, Precision agriculture, Disaster detection and Surveillance. All the applications need secure communication and must protect from the eavesdropping, key compromising, sensor node capture attack, and message authentication. In this paper, we propose A Novel Pairwise Key Establishment and Management in Hierarchical Wireless Sensor Networks (HWSN) Using Matrix to prevent all the above attack and to achieve network connectivity, scalability, and resilience for the network. This scheme is used for the heterogeneous sensor networks. In this scheme, Base station prepares the key matrices for Cluster heads and Sensor nodes and generates the key chains for both cluster head and sensor nodes and preloaded before deployment. Our scheme prevents the following attacks: sensor capture attacks, key compromising attacks, malicious node attacks.

The Dynamic Voltage Restorer (DVR) is identified as the best solution for mitigation of voltage sag and swell related problems in the much taped distribution system. The compensation performance of the DVR very much depends on its control algorithm. In the paper, an estimation method based on Unscented Kalman Filter (UKF) is proposed for mitigating the voltage swell concern. The proposed UKF based estimation technique is used to assist the control algorithm for generating reference signals of Voltage Source Converter (VSC) of DVR. DVR presents the compensation voltage as output which is included in the connected line. With this estimation method, voltage swell issues are discovered with accuracy and faster performance to retract out the swell problem in sensitivity load linked distribution systems. In MATLAB/Simulink platform the suggested method is executed and its performance is assessed and contrasted with the Linear Kalman Filter (LKF) and Extended Kalman Filter (EKF). © 2016.

The effects of runway unevenness on the design and operation of an aircraft have been subjected to investigations for a number of years. Runway roughness will, in general, produce both longitudinal and lateral excitations. This article examines the lateral stability of linear and non-linear models of an aircraft nose landing gear (NLG) subjected to ground-induced lateral excitation. Simulations of ground profile and ground excitation modelling have been performed and numerical studies were carried out to bring out the effect of runway roughness and its interaction with torsional free play. The results show that a small amount of runway excitation causes a significant reduction in the critical shimmy velocity and, in combination with free play, it has an adverse impact on lateral stability of the NLG of an aircraft. Finally, a study has been performed to postpone the dynamic instability by introducing a magnetorheological (MR) fluid-based damper and enhanced torque arm stiffness.

Voltage sags defined as short-duration reductions in the rms voltage on one or more electrical phases are becoming the most important power quality concern to electric utility customers with sensitive loads. They are characterized by their magnitude and duration (which is typically 0.5 to 30 cycles). Sags are predominantly caused by faults that are unavoidable on the distribution systems due to the interconnectivity of the utility systems. The distribution-class dynamic voltage restorer (DVR) is a series connected power electronics device which can compensate for distribution system sags and swells. By enhancing the voltage, the DVR can increase the availability of sensitive loads. For a successful compensation, the DVR must be able to detect the voltage sag and control the inverter to restore the voltage. The sliding mode control is used for the DVR. Using sliding mode control to the DVR, additional sag detection method is eliminated. This improves the dynamic response of the DVR and also DVR is able to compensate for any variation in source voltage. In this paper, a DVR with sliding mode control strategy is used to alleviate the voltage sags caused due to faults occurring on the parallel feeders in a single-phase distribution system. The DVR along with the other parts of the distribution system are simulated using MATLAB/SIMULINK.

Helmholtz resonators are used to control low-frequency noise in cavities. One of the ways to reduce the resonance frequency of a resonator without changing its volume is to introduce an intrusion. Similarly, the introduction of multiple orifices can increase the resonance frequency without changing the resonator volume. These features provide an ability to accommodate slight changes in the cavity/enclosure frequencies during the design process. However, one has to rely on extensive three-dimensional finite element or boundary element simulations to predict the resonator characteristics with the introduction of these features. To reduce the computational burden, a design relation, between the first resonance frequency of a single orifice intruded resonator with that of a multi-orifice intruded resonator, is proposed in this paper. In developing this design relation, the total cross-sectional area of the resonator with multiple orifices is the same as that of the single orifice resonator. It is shown that this design relation is independent of the shape/size of the orifices and resonator cavity. Using this relation, a new end correction formula for the orifice lengths of multi-orifice intruded resonators has been proposed. The end correction formula can be used to calculate the reactance of multi-orifice intruded Helmholtz resonators analytically. These expressions are derived by carrying out extensive simulations of the resonators using the boundary element method. Limited experiments have been carried out to validate the proposed approach. The use of these expressions will reduce the computational cost of simulating cavities embedded with resonators as one can avoid modeling the resonators and use impedance boundary conditions instead. © Institution of Mechanical Engineers 2015.

Data Communication and network have changed the way business and other daily affair works. Now, they rely on computer network and internetwork. Computer network is a telecommunication channel through which we can share our data. It is also called data network. Security for data transmission is one of the important aspects to be considered in modern communication system. In this paper data that is to be transferred is sent in certain pattern which is embedded in the huge amount of data that can be seen by everyone. The effectiveness of the proposed method is described in such a way to increase security of data. To hide data in a binary image, no key is needed here rather this algorithm is based on binary tree traversal through which the bits are plotted in MSB (Most Significant Bit), LSB(Least Significant bit) and MIDDLE bit of a byte. The proposed algorithm assures the data hiding and security. © 2016 SERSC.

Vickers and Knoop microhardness tests were carried out on grown L-alanine single crystals by slow evaporation technique over a load range of 10-50 g on selected broad (2 0 3) plane. Vickers (Hv) and Knoop (Hk) microhardness for the above loads were found to be in the range of 60-71 kg/mm2 and 35-47 kg/mm2, respectively. Vickers microhardness number (Hv) and Knoop microhardness number (H k) were found to increase with increasing load. Meyer's index number (n) calculated from Hv shows that the material belongs to the soft material category. Using Wooster's empirical relation, the elastic stiffness constant (c11) was calculated from Vickers hardness values. Young's modulus was calculated using Knoop hardness values. Hardness anisotropy has been observed in accordance with the orientation of the crystal. © Indian Academy of Sciences.

A new nonlinear optical crystal urea thiourea cadmium sulfate (UTCS) has been grown by slow evaporation technique in equimolar ratio. The grown crystals were characterized by single crystal X-ray diffraction analysis which reveals that sample crystallizes in triclinic system with non-centrosymmetric space group P1. The powder XRD pattern revealed the formation of UTCS compound. High-resolution-X-ray diffraction analysis was carried out to study the crystalline perfection of the sample. Functional groups of the grown crystal were identified by FT-IR studies. Thermo gravimetric and differential thermal analyses were employed to understand the thermal and physio-chemical stability of the synthesized compound. UV-Vis-NIR spectrum revealed the transmission properties of the crystal specimen. The SHG efficiency has been tested by the Kurtz powder technique using Nd: YAG laser and found to be about 0.82 times in comparison with standard KDP crystals. © 2013 Akadémiai Kiadó, Budapest, Hungary.
