The Use and Implementation of Pareto and Ishikawa Diagram for defect minimization in manufacturing firms

Dereje Geleta Oljira & MisganaLamessa Dinsa


Abstract


Many unavoidable challenges in the rejection of a large percentage of finished garment products after shipment owing to quality control failures in garment manufacturing motivated this article. Global competition, diminishing profit margins, customer need for products, product variety, and shorter lead times, among other factors, have a significant impact on the garment manufacturing industry. The need for higher quality products at a lower price is growing, and clothing manufacturers must enhance their operations by manufacturing right the first time. This paper examines how to enhance garment manufacturing quality and productivity by reducing the number of reworks that occur during the manufacturing process. Using Pareto analysis and the Ishikawa diagram effectively, this study enhances the process performance of a major operational process, resulting in higher resource utilization, less variances, and consistent quality of the process output. According to the Pareto principal of 80/20 of 80/20 rule, the up and down sections are rated top in the sewing process area, followed by broken stitch 27.20 percent, uneven stitch 9.44 percent, twisting 6.94 percent, and slip stitch 5.28 percent of defects. After identifying and ranking the primary causes based on the 80/20 principle, viable solutions were presented on how to tackle these issues and reduce the rejection rate to a minimum, as well as minimize costs and increase internal throughput time. This study provides a general summary of the development, stating that by decreasing faults, an industry can earn higher production and profitability.

 

Management of advanced gingival recession defects in mandibular anterior teeth using gingival unit graft - Case Series

Dr.Anupama Tadepalli, Dr. Swapna Chekurthi, Dr.Harinath Parthasarathy, & Dr.Deepa Ponnaiyan


Abstract


Objectives:Gingival recession leads to exposure of the root surface of the tooth due to apical migration of marginal gingiva relative to the cement-enamel junction.The increased incidence of recession has become a major concern for clinicians as dentinal hypersensitivity, esthetic issues and root caries are often associated with root exposure. Free gingival grafts are commonly used to augment attached gingiva. Gingival unit transfer is a variant of free gingival graft that was used in this case series to increase  the width of attached gingiva simultaneously improving root coverage.Methods: This case series describes the clinical effectiveness of a gingival unit graft harvested from palate, in the treatment of RT2 gingival recession defects with respect to mandibular anterior teeth in three subjects. Clinical parameters such as recession depth (RD), width of attached gingiva (WAG) and keratinized tissue (KTW) were evaluated at baseline and post surgery. Root coverage percentage (RC%) was calculated at the end of each follow up period respectively. Results:At the end of the two-year follow-up period, patient 1 had 100% root coverage. At 18 months, patient 2 had partial root coverage ranging from 50 to 75% in different sites. Complete marginal root coverage was attained in patient 3 at 6 months without significant improvement in papillary height. KTW and WAG were improved in all individuals, along with gain in clinical attachment. Conclusion: GUT treatment resulted in improvement in KTW and vestibular depth with varied percent of root coverage in advanced mandibular recession defects.

Amare Tilahun Tessema, Getachew Asefa Alene, Natnael Melsew Wolelaw


Abstract


The foundation of the economic and social development of many nations is the transportation infrastructure, particularly road construction. This paper investigates the major causes of road construction project delays in Ethiopia. The research approach was to identify the different types of construction delays, their causes, and effects from different perspectives, in order to determine the impact and the level of importance of the identified delay factors on road construction projects in this study. The data collected from the questionnaire survey was carried out to 154 valid responses and was analyzed with the relative importance index (RII) method to evaluate the impact of construction delays. A relative importance index (RII) method was used to rank the level of importance of the identified delay factors and to determine their individual impact on the overall project delay. The results indicate that cost-overrun and time-overrun factors have the highest delay impact on road construction projects in this study, with RII values of 0.781 and 0.764, respectively. Furthermore, the study found that each delay factor has a different level of impact on the overall project delay and that the most effective method to minimize delays in road construction projects in Ethiopia is the choice of a project manager with sufficient knowledge and experience relevant to project management and the use of appropriate tools and techniques for the project.

Dr. (Mrs.) Okonta, Vinella, Dr. (Mrs) Osakwe, Nwamaka Grace


Abstract


This study was carried out to ascertain if costs, benefits/returns and importance of university education have any influence on who should pay for education at the university level in the South South Geo-Political zone of Nigeria.  Four research questions were raised and four hypotheses were formulated to guide the study. The descriptive survey method was adopted for the study.  The population comprised all nineteen (19) public universities in the six states of the federation that make up the South South Geo-political zone as at the 2021/2022 academic year; while six (6) universities representing 31.6% of the population were randomly selected and used as sample for the study.  From each of the sampled universities, ten respondents - five academic and five senior non-teaching staff (SNT), giving a total of sixty (60) respondents were drawn and used for the study.  An instrument titled, “Investing in University Education: Who Should Pay? Questionnaire” (IUEWSPQ) was used to elicit data for the study.Data obtained were analyzed using mean, standard deviation and rank order to answer the research questions while the hypotheses were tested using z-test statistics at 0.05 level of significance.Findings showed that university educational costs have significant influence on who should pay; that benefits/returns on university education have no significant influence on who should pay for educational services; that the importance of university education to national economic growth and development indeed has a significant influence on who should pay and that government should bear the bulk of university educational expenditures while other stakeholders should equally contribute to investing in education at the university level.The study recommended that government and private individuals should critically consider the idea of reducing university education costs in order to make it accessible for the poor masses; that all stakeholders should be involved and committed to investing in university education; and that government should stop paying ‘lip service’ to education at this level.

Questionnaires prepared for this purpose was used to collect the required quantitative data from selected employees. The data collected was entered to the SPSScomputer software and analyzed using descriptive and inferential statistics that include mean, standard deviations, correlations and regressions including their significance levels. In addition, PROCESS macro of SPSS was conducted to evaluate the mediation effect.  Results werepresented using tables, graphs and texts. The findings of the study indicated that firstly employees of Dashen Brewery judge the conduciveness of their work environment, commitment and their job satisfaction at mediocre level –not bad or good. Secondly work environment as a whole or its parts (physical or behavioral) found to have significant effect on employee commitment as a whole or with respect to its dimensions (affective continuance and normative). The amount of variance of commitment or its dimensions explained by work environment and combinations of its parts ranged 49.7% - 67% and effect size (regression coefficients) ranged .497 - .818; all of which were significant beyond p .000. It was also noted that physical work environment has more effect compared to behavioral work environment upon commitment or its dimensions. Thirdly analysis of mediation process showed that the mediator (job satisfaction) controlling for work environment, was significant, b = .3959, t(217) = 5.487, p = .000. Based on this it was concluded that work environment or its component parts have significant effect upon employee commitment or its dimension and job satisfaction has significant partial mediating effect upon employee commitment. Finally, it was recommended for the management to improve the situation of work environment to increase employees’ commitment or job satisfaction.

Seema Sharma


Abstract


In this modern age, the advancement in ubiquitous computing has made the use of a natural user interface very much required. The presence of computers and making use of the facilities of human-computer interaction in our societies will bring and mark a positive impact on our societies. Either it was the day when the technologies had not so advanced or today’s when the technologies have advanced so much that we spent most of our time communicating, playing, doing our jobs with the machines and many more, even then human beings had used and are still using a broad range of gestures to communicate or interact with each other. The human gesture is a mode of non-verbal interaction medium and can provide the most intuitive, original, and natural way to interact with computers. The objective of this paper is to make the interaction between humans and computers as natural as the interaction between humans. This paper is to recognize the static hand gesture images (i.e. frames) based on shapes and orientations of the hand which are extracted from an input video stream recorded in stable lighting and simple background conditions. We can use this vision based recognized gestures to control multimedia applications (like Windows Media Player, Windows Picture Manager, VLC Player, etc.) running on a computer using different gestural commands.

Optimization for the production of Indole acetic acid by Streptomyces sp. SDSRO-2 isolated from Rhizosphere soil of maize

Savita Durgappa Sandur , Dr. Rudrappa Onkarappa


Abstract


The primary auxin family member generated by plants is indole-3-acetic acid, which is crucial for a variety of plant developmental stages including leaf creation, embryo development, root initiation and development, abscission, phototropism, geotropism, and fruit development. The current study focuses on the isolation, characterization, and optimization of IAA synthesis from such bacteria found in the rhizosphere soil of maize. The optimum conditions for IAA generation were tested at various pH levels, temperatures, and culture medium including a variety of carbon and nitrogen sources. One of the 18 identified isolates was evaluated as an effective PGPR based on several characteristics that promote plant development. The Streptomyces isolate SDSRO-2 produced IAA more effectively at pH 8 (3.16 g/ml) and 32°C (5.5 g/ml). The optimal carbon source for IAA synthesis (0.37 g/ml) was found to be dextrose (1%). From the current study, SDSRO-2 appeared as noble alternatives for IAA generation further which also resulted in root and shoot length in agricultural plants including Chilli, Wheat, Maize and Sorghum, therefore could potentially be employed as bio-inoculants for plant growth promotion.

R. Hemasree & C.V.Subramanian


Abstract


The migration of people looking for better economic prospects and their residential demands result in the sprawl of the city Most cities in the World look up to a Metro mode of Transit as a solution to ease congestion in the Core of the city and to outreach the city. One needs to conduct surveys to understand the advantages of Metro, frequency and the reason for the trip, mode of reaching the station, and private car data. On the other hand, selective case studies of other cities bring insights into Mass Rapid Transit Systems-MRTS use, the solution they brought forth, the problems they caused, and the way toward the future. The bustling economic activities demand foresight in ever-growing traffic transport problems forcing the city to have its own Metro network-Namma Metro next to Delhi and Hyderabad. 11 years after the inauguration of the first Line-purple line from Byyappanahalli to Mahatma Gandhi Road, it is important to study the influence of Namma Metro on the city. The survey with close-ended questions was conducted on riders, non-riders, and people living in the metro corridors, and data were analyzed. The Namma Metro in Bengaluru has several advantages, including a decrease in air pollution, time savings for passengers, a decrease in accidents, a decrease in traffic congestion, and fuel savings, all of which influence the socioeconomic position of commuters on the purple line corridor. The influence of Namma Metro can be summarised by location, neighbourhood, environment, and socio-economic conditions.

 

Life Writing and Asian Women Narratives

Jyoti Priyadarshini & Dr. Tanutrushna Panigrahi


Abstract


 Life writing and its contemporary forms adopted by Asian women life writers in English is diverse in nature. It is a covering term for genres of biography, autobiography, memoirs, diaries, letters, i-novel, testimony and many other forms of life writing. This paper aims to examine the new literary voices of culturally, racially and religiously distinctive Asian women writers through the various forms of life writing genres which they have adopted to record their experiences. Authors like Y?ko Tsushima (1947-2016), Hitomi Kanhera (1983-), Chanrithy Him (1965-), Loung Ung (1970-) register their voice through the form of i-novel, memoir, testimony, graphic memoir as framework. Majority of the chosen representative texts, that the paper discusses, are produced in the late twentieth and early twenty-first century. Here, this commodious term ‘life writing’ reflects the variance of personal narrative and how these writers adopt and negotiate with different forms of life writing to engage and invent the self. It grants women writers a scope for voluntary self-revelation and self-referentiality. As a result, they turned their back on autobiography and switched to life writing. Asian life writing encompasses various sub genres. As it progressed over time, these numerous forms of personal narrative gave freedom of speech and literary expression unveiling their silenced voices. Asian life writing brings womens’ life straight from reality to the pages and takes their narrative into the heart of others worldwide, where they somehow ultimately find a place to reside.

Abstract


In order to assist airlines set pricing that are both competitive and profitable, a method known as "airline fare detection" involves examining and recognising patterns in airline fares. It is now possible to examine vast volumes of data and acquire important insights into the factors that affect airline fares thanks to machine learning (ML) techniques and data visualisation tools like Tableau. Airlines may find trends and patterns in price data by applying ML algorithms, such as which routes are in high demand, which airports are busiest, and when people want to fly the most. By using this data, pricing tactics can be improved and clients can receive more affordable rates. Airlines may comprehend their price data better and decide on their pricing strategy more intelligently by integrating ML approaches with data visualisation tools like Tableau. By giving clients more reasonably priced and practical travel options, they can remain competitive in a market that is continuously evolving.

Renu Tagra, Jagdish Nandal and Anil Kumar


Abstract


Analytical expressions in closed form for displacements caused by non-uniform vertical strike-slip fault in a monoclinic half space with traction free and rigid boundary have been obtained. Two types of non-uniform strike-slip fault have been considered, i.e., Linear and Parabolic. Graphical calculations have been done with the help of Matlab software and it has been observed that the displacement does not exist when the distance from the fault is zero. We noticed that the displacement has non-uniform pattern in monoclinic medium and the magnitude of displacement due to parabolic slip profile is more as comparison to linear slip profile.

Onoriode, Omorho Humphrey (Ph.D) Ibegbulem, Andreas Brutus (Ph.D)


Abstract


Cybercrime is no longer a crime that needs to be introduced as it has an impact all over the world in many aspects. It is a daily fight and new ideas, proposals, and suggestions are welcomed to overcome that issue. Every day, people, and organizations are a victim of cyber-attack despite de efforts that have done. During a cyberattack, most of the time, the hacker utilizes a VPN to hide their identities such as IP address and location details and this makes tracking difficult. Having a method for having their details will help us to track them and this will lead the concerned organization to catch them, make legitimate moves against them, and will stop their fraudulent activities. One of the main reasons behind a cyberattack is money, therefore, financial organizations are mostly targeted and are likewise confronting an immense impact. In this paper, we propose a framework that is going to prevent a request that comes from a VPN or proxy server. Our work can be implemented in many areas like banking, social media, organization, and so forth.

It is the art or science of gathering and using information about your customers to build customer loyalty and increase customer value. With the current state of information technology, and high customer service expectations, it’s practically impossible to consider these process issues without addressing technology, but it’s important to remember that customer relationships-human relationship- are the ultimate driving force. CRM is about developing and implementing business strategies and supporting technologies that close the gaps between an organization’s current and potential performance in customer acquisition, growth and retention.

 

Biological treatment of solid waste management in ULBs

Dr. C. Jayachitra


Abstract


In India, MSWM is governed by MSWR. However, majority of ULBs do not have appropriate action plans for execution and enactment of the MSWR. Unfortunately, no city in India can claim 100% segregation of waste at dwelling unit and on an average only 70% waste collection is observed, while the remaining 30% is again mixed up and lost in the urban environment. Out of total waste collected, only 12.45% waste is scientifically processed and rest is disposed in open dumps. Environment friendliness, cost effectiveness, and acceptability to the local community are major attributes to achieve efficient solid waste management system. Environmentally benign practices are the need of the hour to cope with the almost exponential growth of MSW. For this, appropriate technological solutions through PPP are required. However, lack of competency and insufficient financial support are major threats to ULBs for development of MSW infrastructure. There is need for PPP to implement management and handling with the latest technology/ know-how with the subject experts firms and companies. Establishment of the good public governance in compliance with secured regulatory framework and appropriate financial support and strict contract implementation is required for the success of PPP. Capacity building and availability of skilled labor, familiarity with new and as well as best practices available for SWM, financial incentives for identifying new techno-feasible solutions, appropriate and quick decision at ULBs level for smooth implementation are real challenges. India is still struggling to make waste-to-energy project a success story.

Dr. Kranti Konuganti Dr. Pragya Patak Anupam Purwar


Abstract


Background: Dental problems are mostly multifactorial in nature and, thus difficult to diagnose and treat. Another fact which makes these problems complex is that it is difficult to restrict the disease progression to one particular structure if not checked at an initial stage. Endo-perio Lesion (EP) is a complex disease entity which involves the tooth structure as well as the supporting periodontium Aim: This study was conducted with an aim to assess the effect of different root canal filling materials viz. gutta-percha, mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA) and Biodentine on EP Lesions using computational modeling. Thus, enabling the clinician in making an informed decision for treatment planning of EP Materials & Methodology: In the present work, mandibular molar human tooth with lesion has been precisely modelled in consultation with a clinician. Then, four different finite element models representing different filler materials were developed. Next, the finite element models were validated with experimental data for a normal tooth under a defined (300N) masticatory load. Highly refined structured mesh with high fidelity second order elements was generated and ANSYS was used to perform the structural analysis Results: It was observed that stresses at the peri-apical area changed with change in filler material type with best result on usage of biodentine. To the best of our knowledge, Biodentine as the filling material has not been investigated for its performance in a simulated study. However, Biodentine was suggested as an alternative to MTA and was reported to have significant regenerative capacity.  Conclusion: In this perspective, our study intends to provide clinical inputs to dentists regard-ing use of Biodentine as filling material. The insights from this investigation can be used for therapeutic purpose by clinicians.

Aditi Bajirao Shinde, Dr. Aishwarya Kanhere


Abstract


Background and purpose: Neck pain is one of the debilitating conditions that can impair the ability to perform regular activities, decrease productivity and adversely affect life quality. As nowadays many companies/ offices etc. require working on computer for prolonged period. They demand working on computer for 6-8 hours/day or more and may be at risk of developing neck pain (due to combination of postural strain, desk setup, monitor setup, seating and stress etc.). Working for long duration may cause chronic neck pain. Kinesiophobia is an extreme irrational and enfeebling fear of movement or physical activity. The fear of movement is associated with a feeling of vulnerability to injury in response to movement. In re-injury in chronic cases due to pain, functional impairments may be associated with severity and cognitive responses to pain. Person having kinesiophobia believe that some movement may cause re-injury and additional pain therefore it can be one of the risk factor for persistent pain.Hence this present study is done to find correlation between pain and kinesiophobia among the desk job workers with non-specific chronic neck pain. Methodology: 100 desk job workers between 25-40 years of age from different areas of Pune were included who were working on computer for minimum 6-8 hours/day. Kinesiophobia was examined by TAMPA scale and pain was examined by numerical pain rating scale. Result: Statistical analysis using Spearman’s correlation test showed that pain had significant moderate positive correlation with kinesiophobia in desk job workers of 25-40 year of age. Conclusion: The study concluded that there was moderate positive correlation between pain and kinesiophobia in desk job workers with non-specific chronic neck pain.

Hermitage to Premier Monastic site: Saranathas Tale, an Epigraphic Account

Chirantani Das


Abstract


S?ran?tha, a monastic site of world renown had a rather sluggish growth from a humble hermitage at the exterior of the historic city of V?r??as?. Its name been abbreviated from S?ra?gn?tha, meaning the lord of the deer implied to both ?iva and the Buddha, a place, a fair abode of animals and particularly deer offered a perfect solitude for meditation and contemplation. Its growth as a Buddhist monastic site was determined by two incidents. While the Buddha chose it as the place for his first preaching or Dharmacakrapravarta?a, immediately set a Buddhist overtone to the place. It again slipped into oblivion until A?oka, built a stupa here as a part of his programme to propagate Buddhism. The site gained a steady momentum of growth with an eclectic patronage from varied agencies. Epigraphic sources reflect kings, queens, sages, traders and merchants as well as lay people contributed as per their means. Votive st?pas, pillars, statues, railings, lamp posts and even the oil to keep those lamps lighted were all funded by charities of different degrees. Having a solid base of followers, S?ran?tha assumed the form of an organized and structured monastic establishment.

 

Ensemble techniques for mental stress prediction

Sri. S. Naga Raju 1, Dr Nandam Gayatri2,Sameer Mohammed3, Sumana Sree Dandigam4 ,Harsha Vardhan Adluri5, Vijay Komma6


Abstract


Mental stress became a social problem and may contribute to functional impairment at regular job. Chronic stress may also be a factor in a number of psychophysiological illnesses. Stress, for instance, raises the risk of heart attack, stroke, and depression. According to the most recent research in neuroscience, brain is the ultimate target of the stress since how the brain perceives a situation affects how harmful and stressful it is. In this situation, a measurement that is objective and takes into account the human brain could greatly reduce the negative impacts of the stress. A machine learning (ML) framework using the ECG and EMG of participants who are stressed is therefore suggested. The task performance and subjective feedback supported the induction of stress. The framework for suggested ML included feature selection, extraction, and classification The findings demonstrated that the suggested framework increased the accuracy of stress recognition. The suggested approach may contribute to the creation of the computer-aided diagnostic tool for stress prediction.

 

Knee Osteoarthritis Grading using Osteo HR Net Model

Dr Nandem Gayatri Mohammed Meran Naveed Siri Chandana Anumandla Sangepu Nagaraju Jyothi Chandupatla Hari Priya


Abstract


Knee Osteoarthritis (OA) is a fatal joint condition affecting the lives of many people around the world. This deadly joint disorder is determined by inflexibility of joints, severity and poor functioning of joints. One of the common risk factors of the disability include age. And these are detected by assessing visible syndromes, clinical data and also through many joint examining reports such as Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), radiography reports and computed tomography images. These imaging tests show the disease progression and provide information about the internal structure of our body. However, the traditional way of treatment is difficult as identifying the disorder at an early stage is impractical. Handling this dispute, a deep learning-based model is proposed to assess the severity of Osteoarthritis in scales of Kellgren and Lawrence (KL) grades automatically. The main novelty of the proposed model is that it is based on  the combination of a top-most current deep learning models which is the called High Resolution Network ( HRNet ) and an attention module called CBAM(Convolutional Block Attention Module), which records multiple resolution representations of knee joint X-ray images. This proposed model is referred to as OsteoHRNet in this paper. This model is a convolutional neural network (CNN) which maintains high-scale representational features. Our proposed framework attained an accuracy of 71.74% and mean absolute error (MAE) of 0.31 with the Osteoarthritis Initiative (OAI) dataset which contains train, test and validation sets of five grades ranging from 0 to 4. This proposed framework gains best remarks over the existing models.

IoT based Sensor Networks using Self Organization algorithm for Precision agriculture

K. Muruganandam, Usha Chauhan


Abstract


The movement toward mechanisation of agriculture, the tendency toward redesigning agricultural systems, the preservation of the agricultural environment, and the advancement of computer technology may all be used to increase agricultural productivity. The sensor network contains a high number of nodes since there is a wider region of agricultural produce that is being monitored, while this also keeps the network's overall cost low. To ensure a thorough surveillance of agricultural fields, the nodes will be dispersed over diverse locations. The likelihood of node failure is quite high since the energy available to the sensor node is restricted. In this research, the use of sensor networks with Self-Organizing Algorithms has emerged as a promising technology to increase agricultural productivity. By collecting real-time data on several parameters such as soil moisture, humidity, temperature, and light intensity, and processing it using Machine Learning algorithms, farmers can make informed decisions that optimize crop yields, reduce costs, and ultimately contribute to global food security. This technology is low-cost, low-power, and scalable, making it suitable for use in remote or developing regions than the Duty Cycle Algorithm. The integration of sensor networks with self-organizing algorithms with other technologies such as Internet of Things (IoT) can further enhance its effectiveness in increasing energy and the total power consumption in the network is minimized. Thus, the sensor network’s efficiency is increased for the betterment of the agriculture environment.

Nowadays, 40% of all newly discovered pharmaceuticals are poorly soluble in water, making drug development a huge difficulty due to low solubility. As a result, developing new pharmaceutical formulations for the pharmaceutical industry has significant solubility and bioavailability challenges. Approach: The solubility of poorly water-soluble drugs has been improved over the past few years using a variety of techniques, including micronization, solid dispersion, complexation, hydrotrophy, cosolvency, surfactant use, particle size reduction, microemulsion, nano suspension, cryogenic techniques, and liquisolid. The different in-vitro evaluation parameters used to assess liquid-solids and their drug release are also discussed in this paper. These evaluation parameters include Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR), Terahertz Time-Domain Spectroscopy, Solid-State NMR (Nuclear Magnetic Resonance), Dissolution Study, and Stability Study. Conclusion: Liquisolid technique are increasingly recognised as having a critical role in medicine or scientific study. The countless reviews and research articles that have been published in various periodicals over the preceding 10 years are enough proof of this. In recent years, some pharmaceutical companies have begun worldwide asserting patents. These companies are growing fast as a result of the regulations and relation to intellectual property. This technique is an essential and efficient way to raise a drug's melting point, stability, and bioavailability.

 

An investigation on the scour of bridge piers having various geometry and length width ratio on a non uniforms and bed

Abhijit Saha and H.L. Tiwari,


Abstract


In this study, the scour depth and dimensions of the scour depth around different shaped piers were compared. Maximum and Minimum scour depth were found out.Sharp nose, elliptical, oblong, and rectangular piers were used in the experiments to compare the various scour hole geometries under the identical flow conditions. In a rectangular flume (25.0 m long, 0.95 m wide, and 1.00 m deep) with a bridge pier having a length to width ratio of 2 and 4, numerous tests were carried out. The 20 cm thick flume bed is made of unevenly graded material with a d50 value of 0.65 mm. The studies were conducted in clear water. Also, the equilibrium scour depths at the downstream and lateral sides of the piers were measured. Based on the experimental results, the shape factor values were also examined, and the results were matched with those found in the literature. Using the sparse experimental data that was published in the literature, the effectiveness of the empirical relation that was developed for circular piers was evaluated. The rectangular pier with sharp noses had the smallest scour hole. Sharp nose, elliptical, oblong, and rectangular piers saw the greatest rise in the scour hole dimensions for the other cross-sections.

Emotion Detection using Convolutional Neural Networks

Dr. B. Buvanaeswari, A. Abuthahir Rasicj, R, Jayaprakash, N.. Gopinath


Abstract


Emotion detection using convolutional neural networks (CNNs) is a growing subfield of natural language processing that aims to classify the emotional state of individuals based on text or speech. The input data is typically preprocessed by encoding words or phrases as numerical vectors, which are then fed into a CNN. The CNN learns to extract relevant features and patterns from the data, and has been successfully applied to tasks such as sentiment analysis, sarcasm detection, and depression detection. However, challenges still exist in accurately detecting emotions in noisy or ambiguous text, and in addressing issues of bias and fairness in emotion detection models. Emotion detection using CNNs has potential applications in various fields such as customer service, market research, and mental health. Emotion detection using CNNs is a powerful technique that enables machines to better understand human emotions, which can have practical applications in many areas. Some of these applications include analyzing customer reviews and feedback, identifying and addressing negative customer experiences, measuring customer satisfaction and sentiment towards products and services, detecting mental health conditions in patients, and assisting with online communication and chatbots.

Dr. B. Buvaneswari, Bhuvanesh Babu S , Gandhiraj J B , Harshan Krishna J


Abstract


Deep Learning (DL) based classification algorithms have shown excellent results in clinical diagnosis, especially with lung cancer datasets. However, due to the limited availability of training datasets and the complexity and opacity of the models, there is a need for explainable modelling techniques that can interpret the outcomes. To address this, our research proposes a novel interpretability approach, which we apply to a lung cancer DL classifier to assess its stability and consistency even when trained on a small number of image examples. This approach also provides valuable insights into the clinical significance of the algorithm's results by identifying the most relevant areas of medical images for the classification. We compared the explanations of ten different models on the same test sample, which demonstrated the consistency of our methodology and the algorithm's attention to the same image regions.

 

Strategies to combat New Delhi metallo ? lactamase where do we stand?

Shailaja S and Susweta Das Mitra


Abstract


Antibiotic resistance to carbapenems is an emerging threat in global health care settings and poses a significant menace to the treatment of diseases spurred on by the multi-drug-resistant bacteria (MDR). New Delhi-metallo-β-lactamase-1 (NDM-1) was recently found and grouped into the broad-spectrum B1-subclass of metallo-β-lactamases (MBLs). The ability of the NDM-1 to hydrolyze diverse array of β-lactam antibacterial agents, notably carbapenems, has received a lot of interest. In general, NDM-1 offers a broad range of substrate binding affinity owing to its shallow active site and distinct electrostatic mechanism. In recent years, numerous NDM-1 inhibitors with different chemical structures have been found. Despite considerable progress in structural and mechanistic knowledge, it remains difficult to develop an effective NDM-1 inhibitor that will be approved for therapeutic use. This may be because NDM-1 has a flexible hydrolysis mechanism and many variants, that impede advent of clinically effective NDM-1 inhibitors. In-depth knowledge of the nature of inhibition and the structural relationship of the NDM-1 enzyme would be beneficial for the identification, synthesis, and development of biologically active inhibitor and would make it a promising drug candidate. In this report we summarize and categorize the significant recent progress in the identification and subsequent development of numerous NDM-1 inhibitors, along with their mechanism of action.

Gowtham, Ponsankar, Boopathy , & Kaviyarasu


Abstract


In order to let blind persons move from one location to another easily and independently, this research presents a bus detecting system. The project aims to bridge the gap by creating a system specific to transportation via buses such that the visually impaired can avail these services without being dependent on another individual or the sympathy of the fellow passengers. To operate a public bus system successfully, securely, and independently, people with visual impairments must become familiar with their physical surroundings as well as the visible information that shows at bus stops and terminals, such as timetables, routes, etc. Our transportation system places a strong focus on safely and promptly dropping off those with physical and mental disabilities as well as older citizens. As a result, our system may be a tremendous helping hand for such individuals to assist them gets at their destinations on time. Due to the fact that the route numbers in the bus transportation system are only visible on the number plate, a visually impaired person must rely on sighted help, which increases their dependency on others and diminishes their sense of self-worth.

Konda Reddy Girija, Hemalatha Kuppan, Vassou Angelin Esther


Abstract


Quinolone  antibiotics are broad-spectrum antibiotics that work against Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria, as well as anaerobes and mycobacteria. This prevent bacterial DNA replication and transcription by prohibiting bacterial DNA from unwinding and duplicating, interfering with DNA replication, and resulting in cell death. Staphylococcus aureus Gyrase B is one of the most investigated and validated targets for the development of new antibacterial agents. Its absence in the mammalian organism and its crucial role in the bacterial DNA replication cycle make this enzyme a suitable target for the development of anti-bacterial agents. This study involves the designing of novel quinolone derivatives and study of its molecular properties to investigate the interaction between the designed derivatives and amino acid residues of Staphylococcus aureus Gyrase B using Auto Dock software. All the designed compounds were shown good binding energy than binding energies of standard drug Ciprofloxacin. Compound (3b, 3c, 3d, 3e) substituted with sulphonamido group were shown to produce higher binding affinity towards the target enzyme compared to the standard. Molecular properties of designed compounds were screened using Molinspiration software and the results were according to the Lipinski’s rule of five properties.

Computation of Optical Energy Band Gaps of Double Alkali Tetraborate Glasses Containing Alkaline Earth Oxide

Sarap Krishnaprasad, Md. Shareefuddin, and Gokarakonda Ramadevudu*


Abstract


The main object of the present work is to compute optical energy band gap valuesusing various methods, find plasma frequency, evaluate excitation energy for electronic transitions (Ed) and dispersive energy (Eo) of alkaline earth oxide containing double tetraborate glasses. The glass samples  (‘x’ changes from 0 to 60 mol%) aresynthesized using melt quenching procedure. These glass systems are characterized by optical absorption spectroscopy.The optical constants of these glasses are determined over a spectral range. The optical band gap energies evaluated by ASF method varied from 3.19 to 3.45 for MZLK glasses and 3.36 to 3.43 for CZLK glass samples. The ratio of average carrier concentration to effective mass for CZLK glasses increased with increasing mole% of Li2B4O7 in the glass matrix.The enhancement in reflectance (R)is attributed to an increase in refractive index value.ZnO containing glasses show good optical properties. Alkaline earth oxide modifies the glass network. Hence alkali tetraborate glasses undergo significant structural changes and give better physical, optical,and electrical properties. The optical band gap energies can be tailoredby varying any one of the alkali tetraborates in the glass composition.
