Advanced Ceramics find wide range of industrial applications. Cutting of advanced ceramic (SiC) is very difficult using conventional machining methods due to its low fracture toughness. In the past few years, researchers have claimed successful machining of ceramic composites using EDM process. Furthermore, increasing trend, necessity of miniaturization, micro components in MEMS and semiconductor industry, micro mould and dies, furnace, micro injection, stamping, fuel nozzles, micro probes, photo-masks and micro tools. etc, have demanded the development of micro-machining methods for advanced ceramics. Therefore, this research was focused on micro hole drilling-EDM of SiC. The optimization of micro drilling in electrical discharge machining process parameters of SiC to improve the multiple performance characteristics such as, high material removal rate, low electrode wear ,surface finish and accurate over cut was investigated and optimized by the Grey-Taguchi method. The influences of peak current, pulse on-time, pulse off-time and spark gap on electrode wear (EW), material removal rate (MRR), circularity(CIR), taper ratio(TR) and overcut (OC) in the micro drilling operation using EDM of SiC were analyzed. The experimental results show that high MRR, low TWR, accurate OC, better CIR, better TR under the micro drilling electrical discharge machining. Hence, it is clearly shown that multiple performance characteristics can be improved by using the Grey-Taguchi method.

Now a days, Cloud computing is an emerging technology, which is a new society for providing remote computing resources through a network. Cloud providers have many problems like getting an energy-efficiency control and satisfying a performance guarantee in cloud. In this paper, we implement three power-saving policies in cloud systems in order to reduce server idle power. To get optimize operational cost within a performance guarantee; we study the challenges of controlling service rates and applying the N-policy. Here we develop a cost function that includes the costs of power consumption, server startups and system congestion. Here we explain the operating modes, incurred costs and the effect of energy-efficiency controls on response times. To minimize cost within a response time under varying arrival rate by finding the optimal service rate and mode-switching restriction is our objectives. We propose an algorithm called Efficient Green Control (EGC) algorithm which is developed for solving optimization problems and making costs or performances tradeoffs in systems with different power-saving policies. By applying the power-saving policies combined with the proposed algorithm, we get our result that the benefits of reducing operational costs and improving response time.

Due to the rigorous environmental policy Organizations of several countries are facing difficulties and are forced to follow extended manufacturer task to diminish sources of waste and pollution throughout the Supply Chain (SC).This led to the conversion of traditional Supply Chain Management (SCM) in to Green Supply Chain Management (GSCM) where the manufacturer takes the responsibility from birth of the product to the cradle. The decision makers of GSCM are facing tedious situation not only in Forward flow of products and information but also in Reverse flow of products and information in the form of uncertainties like supply, process and demand. Cloud Computing (CC) develops as an important tool in reducing this by providing services such as infrastructure, platform and software with the aid of Internet. In this paper the application of Cloud Computing for GSCM has been discussed in brief and also explains the benefit and demerit of using CC for GSCM.

Digital image correlation and tracking (DIC) is an optical method that employs tracking and image registration techniques for accurate 2D and 3D measurements of changes in images. This is often used to measure deformation, displacement, strain. Intensity Integration Technique and Line summation method are one of DIC Techniques. The purpose of this research is to identify the similarities between the Intensity Integration Technique and Line Summation method for Cantilever beam under the given loading conditions where the slope and curvature is found out for mirror like reflective surfaces. In Intensity Integration Technique (IIT) for small deformation, it is assumed that total amount of light reflected by a designated area on the surface would be same before and after deformation when there is no change in illumination (conservation of the total quantity of reﬂected light). Line summation method is a grid method where the optical strain of grid lines is related to slope and curvature of the loaded beams (Theory of bending). The spacing between two grid lines is unaltered under no load condition and spacing changes when it is in loaded condition. Thus, the strain is related to slope and curvature. These findings may be useful in study of material deformation, nature of defect (inclusion and void) and crack propagation in real-world applications, as it has the potential to become a cheap, simple yet accurate solution.

Composite plays a vital role in material science especially in the field of aerospace, marine, automobile, military and structural applications. It consists of two or more physically and chemically distinct phases. The composite has hybrid characteristics than those of individual components. Metal Matrix Composites (MMC) is those which are based on metals as matrix. Usually the reinforcing component is distributed in the continuous or matrix component. MMC focuses mainly on a relatively high strength and wear resistance applications. Aluminium Matrix Composites (AMC) is one in which Aluminium is the matrix and it has the property of high strength to weight ratio. The purpose of the work is to process and to determine the mechanical properties of AA2219-TiCp.Aluminum Matrix reinforced with TiCp composite was produced using modified stir casting process. Five different weight % of TiCp addition were performed without defects. The weight fractions used were 3%, 4%, 5%, 6%, 7%. The colour optical graphs, XRD, EDX analysis revealed the presence of TiC in the cast AMC. Tensile test, micro-hardness test shows the clear indication of considerable increase in Ultimate Tensile Strength(UTS) when the percentage of TiCp addition was increased.

Concentrating collectors are also known as focusing collectors. A parabolic trough is a type of concentrating collector in which the energy from the sunlight is reflected and focused on the absorber tube. This paper focused on the performance of parabolic trough collector which has a ceramic-Metal coating on the absorber tube. A comparison of performance has made between with and without coating on the receiver. Here the ceramic metal coating is a multilayer coating and the layers are molybdenum – alumina. The Parabolic Trough Collector is designed and modeled using Pro/E and SOLIDWORKS. The absorber tube’s performance was calculated theoretically without coating on it. A three-dimensional CFD-model was developed and analyzed using the ANSYS FLUENT15.0. Absorber tube made up of stainless steel is simulated with flow of water and analyzed using computational fluid dynamics software. At the end of the simulation, temperature distribution over the absorber tube was studied. A comparative simulation is made between with and without coating on absorber tube of the parabolic trough collector. Absorber tube with ceramic-metal coating has shown in its performance about 5.03% when the heat flux increasing gradually.

A significant amount of heat is wasted in electricity general, manufacturing, chemical and industrial process. Recovery and reuse of this energy through storage can be useful in conservation of energy and meeting the peak demands of power. A shell and spiral type heat exchanger has been designed and fabricated for low temperature industrial waste heat recovery using phase change material. Paraffin wax (Melting Point 54 oC) was used as storage media due to its low cost and large-scale availability in Indian market. Experiments were performed for different mass flow rates and inlet temperature of heat transfer fluid for recovery and use of waste heat. The effect of mass flow rate on the performance of the system was studied. Calculations for overall heat transfer during charging (melting of PCM) and discharging (solidification of PCM) and heat discharging efficiency were also made.

Incomplete burning of the fuel and high emission in the engine were the major problems in using the petrol as a fuel. In this Experimental study, the effects of Diethyl Ether, petrol fuel blend investigated on four stroke four cylinder SI engine for analyzing the performance and combustion characteristics. The tests were performed while running the engine at speeds of 1500&1000 rpm and at four different engine load conditions (0, 3, 6, 9 kW). The results obtained from the use of Diethyl Ether, petrol fuel blends are compared to those of sole petrol in SI engine. The results indicated that when Diethyl Ether, petrol fuel blends were used, the Brake Specific Fuel Consumption and exhaust emission are decreased. Exhaust gases namely, carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide and total unburned hydrocarbons are measured using AVL exhaust gas analyzer. Performance and exhausts emissions are compared with sole petrol, using Diethyl Ether, petrol fuel blends. This oxygenates shows significant improvement for exhaust emission and also fuel consumptions at different load conditions.

The PVD techniques range over a wide variety of applications from decorative, to high temperature superconducting films. The thickness of the deposits can vary from angstroms to millimeters. A very large number of inorganic materials—metals, alloys, compounds, and mixtures—as well as some organic materials can be deposited using Physical vapour Deposition (PVD) technologies. Traditionally, the term hard coatings refer to the property of high hardness in the mechanical sense with good tribological properties. The analysis of PVD coating on stainless steel has been carried out. The objectives of the coating are to check the properties and wear performance of coated and uncoated materials. For this project, we selected stainless steel discs as a substrate; among those three of them are coated with Ti based powder deposited by using PVD method. While after the coating process has been completed the roughness of each coated and uncoated material has been carried out. Ensure that the weight of the materials should be checked before the wear test is to be performed. Now the wear performance of the coated and uncoated materials should be carried out, in order to achieve the low co-efficient of friction in coated materials than the uncoated materials by using Pin-On-Disc apparatus having Tribological Data Acquisition System. Again the weight of the materials should be checked to determine the weight loss of each material.

In Automobile manufacturing plant, it was noticed that 7 out of 1000 crankshafts are prone to failure. This work is concentrated to identify the cause of failure in the crankshaft and to improve the fatigue life of the crankshaft by performing parametric study. In parametric study, the crankshaft is designed and analyzed in ANSYS WORKBENCH by varying the fillet radius of journal bearing. The maximum equivalent alternating stress and cycles to failure were predicted in numerical analysis. The cycles to failure are increased by varying the parameter and hence the fatigue life of crankshaft is improved.

MANET is a network that consists of mobile autonomous nodes often composed of mobile devices. Here the nodes must cooperate with each other to establish communication. Each node in the MANET acts as a router by cooperating with each other’s to forward data packets. The presence of collaboration of malicious nodes may disrupt the routing processes and lead to network failures. The lack of infrastructure with dynamic topology may lead MANETs to be exposed to black hole attacks and gray hole attacks. If there are malicious nodes present in the MANET it may violate Security conditions and launch grey hole attacks and black hole attacks. This can be overcome by CBDS which is defined using DSR protocol which integrates both proactive and reactive defense architectures. CBDS uses the reverse tracing algorithm. A security algorithm is proposed to enhance security, increase and refine the throughput and increase the packet delivery ratio. The proposed security algorithm outperforms the CBDS scheme.

The basic architecture of Wireless Sensor Networks is usually a hybrid type where it is a combination of infrastructure oriented and infrastructure less networks. The Communication from sensor to sensor head takes place through peer-to-peer architecture (infrastructure less) and the communication from Cluster Head to Base Station (BS) involves Broadcast Based (Infrastructure Oriented).This Hybrid architecture is to reduce the energy consumption of sensor nodes as it will be depleted soon when each sensor broadcasts sensed data to base station as and when it senses. Hence a cluster head will be elected for each cluster by considering the battery, memory and processing ability  . All the sensors will send their sensed data to the cluster head in a peer-to-peer manner. Cluster head recovers the data and generates the signature using elgammal. Base station sends request to cluster heads of high & heterogeneous clusters and can receive the recovered data from cluster head by verifying signature. The encrypted binary packets are accumulated in BS and it is fed to a database after verification of packets from clusters.

A novel mechanism to simulate visual attention mechanisms for content-based image retrieval, based on saliency structure histogram method was proposed in this paper. In CBIR, images are indexed by their visual content, such as color, texture, shapes. A color volume with edge information together is used to detect saliency regions. The texture image features, such as energy, inverse difference moment, contrast are extracted. To simulate orientation-selective mechanism for image representation within CBIR framework, saliency structure histogram is used. The performance of the proposed algorithm was evaluated based on two datasets. The proposed algorithm outperforms the standard BOW baseline and micro-structure descriptor.

Cloud computing is a recent technology provides a flexible, on-demand and low cost feature of computing resources. The Main issue in Cloud Computing is user identity privacy and data content privacy. The User Privacy in Cloud Computing is achieved by various data access control Schemes. Existing Fully Anonymous Access control scheme with decentralized attribute authority provides data content privacy and also prevents full user identity leakage by using N-oblivious transfer and multi-authority ciphertext-policy attribute based encryption scheme. But user attribute revocation is not implemented for better security. Supporting user revocation over Anonymous Multi-authority Ciphertext-policy attribute based encryption (MA-CP ABE) is an important issue in the real application. We Propose a Revocable Anonymous Access Control with Multi-authority cloud storage system to enhance the security and to solve revocation problem, Here Each Individual Attribute Authority is able to issue the attributes and keys independently. Our Revocable Anonymous Access Control Scheme for Multi-Authority Ciphertext-Policy Attribute Based Encryption can achieve both forward and backward security. Our security analysis and performance analysis shows that our scheme is more secure and more efficient than previous work.

Mobile Ad-hoc Networks (MANETs) is self-configured and decentralized wireless network without any prior infrastructure. Every node in it acts as a router as well as end system and hence each node in MANET is allowed to move freely which makes routing difficult. Most of the MANET routing algorithms like AODV and DSR assume that every node will forward every packet it receives. In opportunistic routing, a node selects and prioritizes multiple nodes which can act as potential packet forwarders. Source node will relay packets to the destination node through the intermediate node. However, misbehavior of the selfish nodes is a common phenomenon in MANET. These nodes use the network and its services and do not provide any services to intermediate nodes in order to save energy such as battery, CPU Power and bandwidth for relaying data from other nodes and reserve for themselves. These selfish nodes will degrade the performances of wireless ad hoc networks. In this thesis, Using OR and BPR routing protocols to overcome the presence of selfish nodes and also BPR routing protocol used to avoid malicious nodes. These protocols used to avoid congestion and perform the simulation using Network Simulator.

This paper proposes novice automatic salient region detection in an image which includes both the global and local features. The main motivation behind this approach is to construct a saliency map by utilizing a linear combination of colors in a high dimensional color space. In general, the human perception is highly complicated and non-linear and in response to that, the salient region consists of distinct colors compared to the background. The estimation of an optimal construction of a saliency map was done by agglomerating the low-dimensional colors to the high-dimensional feature vectors. Furthermore, a relative location and color contrast between super pixels are utilized to improve the performance. It was tested under three distinct datasets to evaluate the applicability and practicability of our proposed method.

Any Information retrieval from documents is done through text search. Now a day, efficient search is done through Mining techniques. Speech is recognized for searching a document. A group of Conversations are recorded using Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) technique. The system changes speech to text using FISHER tool. Those conversations are stored in a database. Formulation of Implicit Queries is preceded in two stages as Extraction and Clustering. The domain of the conversations is structured through Topic Modeling. Extraction of Keywords from a topic is done with high probability. In this system, Ranking of documents is done using Probabilistic Latent Semantic Analysis (PLSA) technique. Clustering of keywords from a set covers all the topics recommended. The precise document recommendation for a topic is specified intensively. The Probabilistic Latent Semantic Analysis (PLSA) technique is to provide ranking over the searched documents with weighted keywords. This reduces noise while searching a topic. Enforcing both relevance and diversity ensures effective document retrieval. The text documents are converted to speech conversation using e-Speak tool. The final retrieved conversations are as required.

Cloud computing makes IT more efficient and cost effective in today’s world. Cloud computing act as a virtual server that the user can access via internet on a needed basis and this eliminates the need for the companies to host their own servers and purchase of expensive software. On the other hand there arise many new types of cyber theft. The main concerns in cloud computing are data integrity, security and enhancement of storage space in the cloud. This paper focuses on maintaining data integrity and security from a user’s perspective and also provides clear understanding of achievable security merits by using multiple distinct clouds simultaneously and enhancing storage space of public cloud by DE duplication from a cloud service provider’s perspective. Symmetric key encryption is used to prevent unauthorized user from accessing data. Convergent encryption is used to maintain data confidentiality.

Data hiding is also known as data encapsulation or information hiding, it reduces system complexity for increased robustness .Proposed approach provides optimal solution for performing data hiding. The goal of data hiding technique is to embed the secret data into the cover image with minimum changes in the pixel values. Here the secret data is generated and embedded into the cover image by random function of MATLAB and various chaotic map approaches. Then the embedded image is send to the Particle Swarm Optimization technique (PSO).In this technique, optimal solution is achieved which is calculated based on the maximal Peak Signal to Noise Ratio (PSNR) value. So, the final stego image which is obtained has the minimal changes in the pixel values .In this Project, long running time will get reduce.
