    Conventional switches require considerable amount of actuation voltage for operation. So an RF MEMS switch which can be actuated by a lower voltage unlike the conventional switches can be used to solve this problem. RF MEMS switches offer a substantially higher performance than p-i-n or FET diode switches. They are extensively used in MEMS phase shifters, phased arrays and switching networks up to 120 GHz. Work is also extended to the analysis of the switch under various mechanical parameters like material properties, Young's Modulus, Poisson's ratio, loading properties etc. The development platform chosen is ANSYS software. The analysis category is structural-thermo-electric analysis. A switch is being simulated using ANSYS software and the switching action is analysed.

    Air-dried stem bark of UapacatogoensisPax (Phyllanthaceae, a segregate of Euphorbiaceaesensulato) was powdered and successively extracted using the three selective solvents;n-hexane, ethyl acetate and methanol by Soxhlet extraction. The n-hexane extracted 0.44%, ethyl acetate extracted 0.85% and methanol extracted 17.63% of the plant material. Preliminary phytochemical screening of the extracts revealed that U.togoensis stem bark contains carbohydrates, glycosides, cardiac glycosides, saponins, tannins, flavonoids, alkaloids, steroids and triterpenes. Antimicrobial activities studies showed that all the extracts are active against the same set of bacteria and fungi. The extracts have activity against MRSA,S,aureus, C. ulcerans, E. coli, S. typhi, S. dyseateriae,P. mirabilis, N. gonorrhoae, C. albicans, C. krusei and C. tropicalis but have no activity against VRE, S. pyogenes, P. aeruginosa and C.stellatoidea. Thus, the U. togoensis stem bark extract is both antibacterial and antifungal. The MIC of the extracts are generally lower than the MBC/MFC. In most cases, the MIC of the extracts is 10mg/mL and the MBC/MFC is 20mg/mL

    The images contain measurement information of key interest for a variety of research and application areas. On the other hand, computers have become an inseparable part of our society, influencing many aspects of our daily lives in terms of communication and interaction. The main motive is to develop a system that can simplify the way humans interact with Computers. The system is designed using Canny's edge detection for edge detection and Histogram of gradients for feature extraction and the Support Vector Machine (SVM) Classifier which is widely used for classification and regression testing. SVM training algorithm builds a model that predicts whether a new example falls into one category or other. And the classifier learns from the data points in examples when they are classified belonging to their respective categories.

    In this paper a mathematical approach has been studied to ascertain the cyber crime which is a worsening problem that can lead to loss of financial and personal information. However, e-crime is particularly hard to detect since internet is boundless that make evidence hard to collect. We have developed a probabilistic model using Poisson Process to determine the number of infected computers for a period of times when an individual becomes infected by the virus. A qualitatively distinct potential scenario is predicted to fight the cyber-crime. It is believed that the outcomes obtained from the present investigation will provide useful information for application and also serve as a complement to the previous investigations.

    Physical properties of the atom's intrinsic electromagnetic (e-m) harmonic oscillation are analyzed with SHM formalism. The results would suggest that light does not travel in the sense of rectilinear motion, it is an oscillating e-m loop of cosmic proportions and rotates as it radiates. It is re-affirmed that the atom exists simultaneously as wave and as particle, each characterized by specific physical properties and further revealed that: (i) waveforms of the chemical elements bind together into a perfect superfluid to constitute space (i.e., the "vacuum") as such physical properties of the vacuum are summations of properties of each element's waveform and comprise values of atomic radius, density, angular speed, centripetal force and modulus analogous to corresponding values of the visible elements; (ii) waveform densities add up to 2.608889474 x 10-36 kg/m3; the value confirms existence of the long speculated vacuum energy; given the density, cosmological constant evaluates at Λ = 7.2955513855 x 10-52 m-2 confirming the observed value ~10-52m-2; (iii) the combined λ values of the wave and particulate forms gives rise to the e-m spectrum; (iv) radioactivity results from changes in tensile properties of the atom as atomic number increases, it is an exclusive phenomenon of the microcosmic atom, the visible macrocosmic particulate form plays no role whatsoever;(v) the results would suggest that atomic wave and particulate forms are identifiable with bosons and fermions respectively.

    The review report presents a procedure & software application to optimize the topology, size and shape of castellated beam using finite element analysis. The Castellated beams are produced by cutting and re-welding of hot rolled sections which are made of regularly spaced opening. So for same weight Castellated beam has more height than regular beam. Load carrying capacity of simply supported Castellated steel beams susceptible to web post bucking is studied. FEA method is used to evaluate the load carrying capacity castellated beam. The parameter studies are also carried out in order to assess the cross section classification to compare the ultimate load behavior. Among the main features of these beams can be pointed to architectural features and height which resulting in greater strength and stiffness of the beams without the added weight of the beams. In this paper, the load carrying capacity of castellated beam is reviewed. The unit member with fillet corner opening has a higher load carrying capacity as compared with those with hexagonal, rectangular openings when they have the same opening height, but lower than that with circular opening.

    Communication over electric power distribution lines (PLC) has been in existence for a long period of time. The current systems utilizes narrow bandwidth which limits the communication speed. For high speed data communication, broad bandwidth is required. This paper analyses the characteristics of indoor and outdoor distribution networks in Nigeria for high speed data transmission. From measurement results, signal transmission models for indoor and outdoor distribution networks in the frequency band of 1-10 MHz were developed. From the results obtained, the networks exhibits frequency selectivity. Third order polynomial models and low order finite impulse response models are sufficient to describe the power line channels.

    In the present study, an attempt has been made to study the effect of two invasive aquatic plants Eichhornia crassipes (Mart.) Solms and Pistia stratiotes L. common weeds seen in the Cochin backwaters, on seed germination, seedling growth and the total phenolic content of Cicer arietinum L. The objective of this study is to determine the rate of germination, radicle emergence, plumule elongation, biomass, chlorophyll and the phenolic content of the cultivar seeds exposed to five concentrations of the leaf extracts of E.crassipes and P.stratiotes viz., 0.01ppm,0.1ppm, 1ppm,4 ppmand 10 ppm. In general the seeds of C. arietinum showed a slight decrease in the rate of germination, radicle elongation, plumule growth, biomass, phenol and chlorophyll content in 0.01 ppm over the control.There was gradual decrease in rate of germination, radicle emergence, plumule elongation, biomass and the chlorophyll content with increasing concentrations. The maximum inhibition was observed in highest concentration of both the extracts(10ppm). The total chlorophyll and chlorophyll a content decreased as the concentration of the leaf extract increased, extracts of E.crassipes showed a 50% decrease while it was 20% in P. stratiotes. The chlorophyll b recorded a marginal increase in the P. stratiotes treated seeds of C. arietinum. This research contributes to the phytotoxicity assessment database, and besides to lay the foundation for the exploitation of the secondary metabolites in these weeds for industry and medicine.

    For several years, we are seeing significant growth in the production of polymers, which currently equal in volume than steel. On the other hand, the use of polymers is becoming more diversified. The work we present is interested in mechanical fracture behavior of rigid PVC pipes. Initially, we selected standardized dumbbell specimens for determining mechanical properties, then we manufactured rectangular specimens of different lengths notched ( SENT ), thin to track damage mechanisms and the phenomenon Laminating the nick of this material background. During charging, it is observed that the plastic deformation occurs while the slow uncracked ligament. This plastic deformation is often accompanied by blunting and a strong stretching of the material in the immediate vicinity of the tip of the notch which is manifested by color change of the material in this area. Photographic observations of the specimens tested , indicate the sequence of successive events the following mechanisms: a separation of the lips of the mechanical notch , followed by the initiation of the crack in a highly stretched area ( white area ) , this characteristic laundering PVC material to stretch the material of the highly damaged area around the mechanical notch.

    Values of viscosity(η) have been determined for four amino acids (glycine, L-alanine, L-valine and L-leucine) in aqueous xylose solutions ( 0.05, 0.10, 0.15, 0.20 ) M at T = (298.15,303.15, 308.15, 313.15) K. Viscosity B- coefficients of Jones-Dole equation, B- coefficients transfer (ΔB), temperature dependent of B- coefficient, free energy of activation per mole of solvent (Δμ10*) and solute (Δμ20*) and thermodynamic activation parameter , G2°(1→1'), are estimated using viscosity data. The linear correlations of B and Δμ20* for a homologous series of amino acids have been used to calculate the contribution of charged end groups (NH3+, COO-), CH2 and other alkyl chain of the amino acids. Our study concludes the existence of strong solute solvent interaction in the studied systems. Furthermore, structure making and breaking behaviour of all the four amino acids have also been assessed in aqueous xylose solutions. The thermodynamics of viscous flow has also been discussed

    The study investigated the availability and extent of use of information communication and technology resources for chemistry teaching in secondary schools of Anambra State. The design of the study was survey. The population of the study was all the chemistry teachers in 260 governments owned secondary schools in the state. The instrument used for the study was questionnaire with two sections on availability of ICT resources tagged (AICTR) and of ICT resources tagged (UICTR) and oral interview. The validation of the instrument was done by four experts- two computer educators, a chemistry educator and an expert in measurement and evaluation in higher institution. The reliability of the instrument was determined by administering the questionnaire to twenty chemistry teachers in Nnewi education zone. The alpha indices obtained were 0.85 for AICTR and 0.81 for UICTR. Oral interview was used to buttress the findings of the study. The findings of the study revealed that the ICT resources needed for chemistry curriculum delivery are not available, except generators and desktops available in rural and urban schools. On the extent of utilization of ICT resources, for chemistry curriculum delivery the study revealed that teachers do not use them in teaching. Necessary conclusion was drawn and recommendations made. Amongst others are that all state holders in education should join hands in furnishing schools with more ICT resources needed for curriculum delivery and ensuring that chemistry teachers use these resources.

    The purpose of this study was to analyze the effect of leadership behavior and compensation to employee satisfaction and performance. The experiment was conducted at the Government of the District of Sinjai, South Sulawesi Province with a total sample of 200 respondents by the Sovin formula. Methods of data analysis used Structural Equation Model using AMOS Program 18. The results showed that transformational leadership directly has significant and positive effect on satisfaction. Transformational leadership oriented vision, mission, hopes, intelligence and attention has been applied, but not significant employee satisfaction. Transformational leadership directly has not significant and positive effect on performance. Applied transformational leadership has been unable to achieve the maximum performance input, process, output and outcome. Transformational leadership indirectly has not significant and positive effect on performance through satisfaction. Compensation has significant and positive effect on performance. Compensation received by employees as a reward that contributes in improving the performance of the appropriate input, process, output and outcome.

    The purpose of this paper is to present the findings of a research on Why a Community Tolerate Dust Pollution and Noise Disturbance? A Study of Corporate Social Responsibility in Nickel Mining The study was conducted in the village of Motui, Sub-District of Motui, District of North Konawe, Indonesia. Eighty samples were randomly selected using Slovin's formula from 352 population affected by the mining operation. The research methodology applied a descriptive analysis. The measurement of study variables used Likert scale (Riduwan, 2003), namely: strongly agree (score 5), agree (score 4), neutral (score 3), disagree (score 2), and strongly disagree (score 1). In valuing empirically the research variables, this study adopted the valuing principle of Arikunto (1998). An in-depth analysis was conducted using interviews, discussions and observations to validate the response of respondents. The findings showed that 1) based on the total average of the perception of the members of the community, mining operation is categorized as average or neutral (2.75). It means the presence of the mining company and its operation did not significantly disturb the surrounding community. In addition, based on personal communication through interviews, monetary compensation mitigated their intolerance to the noise disturbance and dust pollution. 2) With regard to the CSR of the mining companies, the survey indicated community members are strongly dependent on the on decisions of mining companies and the local government. It means they are passive recipients and beneficiaries. These two items showed the weak bargaining position of community towards their fate. It is evident that their need for cash money is more much preferred in exchange for expressing and demanding for their rights. In summary, the perception and attitude of the respondents showed a high average score of 3.99 in terms of community participation in CSR of the mining companies.

    Paper Index :: : 09.1913/0463063068

    This paper presents an integration of a series of sequential and parallel computations for vehicle number plate segmentation from vehicle image based on watershed and visualization techniques. The work is modeled into five stages. In the first stage a sequential computation is performed to make an initial segmentation through computing gradient magnitude, applying watershed transformation and reconstruction of image using morphological operations. In the second stage regional maxima and watershed ridge lines are obtained in parallel. The third stage performs sequential computation from the outputs of the second stage by applying watershed transformation to obtain markers and objects in image. The fourth stage extracts required features and identify probable candidate regions in parallel. The fifth stage takes the outputs of the fourth stage and segments the number plate from the image using visualization technique. The result of the proposed model is compared with the results obtained from the sequential model for analysis. The experimental results show computational performance is relatively 1.6 times faster than the sequential model on similar machines.
