The rate at which automation is being introduced into welding process is astonishing and it may be expected that by the end of this century more automated machines than men in welding fabrication units will be found. To make effective use of the automated systems it is essential that a high degree of confidence be achieved in predicting the weld parameters to attain the desired mechanical strength in welded joints. Higher quality welds with fewer defects like porosity, and cracking and material properties closer to the parent metal are most required in the present manufacturing processes. The mechanical properties of the weldments of AA6351 during the Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW)/Tungsten Inert Gas Welding (TIG) with non-pulsed and pulsed current welding at different frequencies 3Hz and 7Hz is attempted in this work. The radiography and mechanical properties of the weldments have been examined and compared with non-pulse and pulsed current welding (PCW) at two different frequencies 3Hz and 7Hz. The mechanical properties like tensile strength, % of elongation, 0.2% yield strength of AA6351. No defects were found in the weldments of AA6351 and tensile strength of the joints was more in the case of pulsed current welding.
Keywords: Pulsed current welding, none pulsed current welding, tensile strength, % elongation, yield strength.

This article reports the properties and the behavior of GaN during the photoelectrochemical etching process using four different current densities of UV illumination. The measurements show that the porosity strongly depends on the high illumination and highly affects the surface morphology of etched samples, which has been revealed by scanning electron microscopy (SEM) images. Peak intensity of the photoluminescence (PL) spectra of the porous GaN samples was observed to be enhanced and strongly depend on the illumination. Among the samples, there is a little difference in the peak position indicating that the change of porosity has little influence on the PL peak shift, while it highly affecting the peak intensity. Raman spectra of porous GaN under different current densities of UV illumination exhibit phonon mode E2 (high), A1 (LO), A1 (TO) and E2 (low). There were slight blue shifts in E2 (high) in all samples, indicating a relaxation of stress in the porous GaN surface with respect to the underlying single crystalline epitaxial GaN. Raman and PL intensities were high for samples etched in different current densities of UV illumination.
Keywords: illumination; GaN; UV-electrochemical etching; Porosity.

In order to sol ve those issues including limited storage capacity, high cost of storage and fault recovery in traditional HDFS, cloud storage can effectively solve these problems by using virtual resources of the IaaS based o n HDFS. But it cannot assure cloud storage to utilize virtual resources more effectively. In order to solve these problems, the paper proposes a elastic cloud storage framework based on HDFS, and introduces the thought of virtual resources management into the framework, and proposes a elastic management strategy of virtual resource allocation and scheduling based on this framework. The simulation experiment shows cloud storage can effectively improve the efficiency in the use of virtual resources.

Multiplication process is not only bounded only in mathematics. It is also applied in many other fields where a sequence of summing or addition is to be applied. Multiplication is nothing but a sequence of addition performed repeatedly. Our basic approach is to consider as many bits of multiplier as possible so that the total number of partial product. In this paper we tried to implement such a technique where we can consider more than one two bits(compared to Booth's process of multiplication) of the multiplier to decrease the total number of partial product with the other operation like addition, shift and complement.

The synthesised γ-TeO2nanocrystalshave been indexed in orthorhombic system with lattice energy 81.21 eV. Strain is caused by the presence of dislocations. This has possibility to have dislocations in nanoscale has little significance. The X-ray peak profile study provides peak broadening and asymmetric peak shapes and to understand the micro structural parameters for crystallite size and strain. Present work deals with systematic application of Hall-Williamson method for crystallite size estimation, and the modified Williamson-Hall plot and the modified Warren-Averbach methods yielded physically well justified data for particle size and dislocation densities. The reflections {020}{151} and {002} have the same peak breadth and reflections while {120}{101}{200} and {122} have more or less same peak breadth. The successful application of the new procedures have indicated that even in nanocrystalline particles dislocations are present.

Husk is the waste product of deseeded sunflower head as agro wastes. The annual production of Sunflower Husk in India is 1.8 million metric ton and this amount is predicted to increase in the future. The high fiber content and low protein and energy content of sunflower hulls reduce their nutritional value. So it is not used as animal feed. In last decades, corncobs used as the raw material for synthesis of furfural using acid hydrolysis method. Autoclave or pressure digester is used as batch rector for synthesis of furfural from corncobs. The presence of mild oxidizing agents seems not to affect the yield of furfural but the presence of catalyst affect the yield of furfural. This study is performed by experimentally using a tubing-bomb reactor system by using olive stones as feed. The maximum furfural yield obtained is 50% to 65%. The supercritical carbon dioxide Extraction experiment showed that increasing temperature, pressure, CO2 flow rate and sulfuric acid concentration and decreasing ratio of liquid to solid would improve furfural yield. This study suggested that the furfural production by acid hydrolysis of sorghum straw with phosphoric acid at 1340C giving furfural yield 0.1336 g furfural/g initial dry matter. Sugar cane bagasse by steam explosion method in a stainless steel reactor produces xylose which is then converted into furfural. This experimental study has give idea about the yields of furfural which depend on pentoses content in pistachio green hulls (PGH). One of the approaches is the conversion of rice husk to furfural, as an intermediate product in synthesizing chemical products such as nylons, lubricants and solvents, adhesives, medicines, and plastics. This study revealed a good yield of the furfural from rice husk which have been confirmed by the various tests including infrared spectrophotometric scans.

Special benefits of linear traveling systems into the other sprinkler irrigation systems include resolve problems related to the runoff and lack of irrigation in corners of the field (center pivot systems), has led to the popularity of these systems. More detailed design of linear traveling irrigation systems, while raising the water use efficiency (WUE) can be considered a step to development sustainable agriculture. In this paper, using PivNoz software (USDA-ARS-NWISRL) values of required flow, nozzle diameter, and wetted area for linear traveling laterals optimized. The most changes to reach to the optimal values were related to the required flow 56% caused by the system gross capacity changes, then wetted area 49% due to the nozzled length changes, and then required flow 43% caused by the nozzle spacing. However, nozzle diameter was the only parameter that its values not remained constant for changes of system design factors.
Keywords: linear traveling system, sprinkler irrigation, sustainable agriculture, water use efficiency.

This paper reveals that too many procedures yield too many rather different solutions, thus confusing the user in choosing a plan. In this paper a procedure is developed to draw an O.C.Curve by using hypergometrical distribution method. The research problems under consideration are relationships between sampling risks and other elements inbuilt in a single acceptance sampling plan. Two levels of quality are considered: first, average quality level desired by the consumer AQL and, second, quality level called lot tolerance percent defective LTPD, or the worst level of quality that the consumer may tolerate. The producer's risk α is the risk of incorrect rejection is the risk that the sampling plan will fail to verify an acceptable lot's quality set by AQL and, thus, reject it. The probability of acceptance a lot with LTPD quality is the consumer's risk β or the risk of incorrect accepting. Operating characteristic (OC) curve describes how well an acceptance plan discriminates between good and bad lots. Acceptance sampling plan consists of a sample size n, and the maximum number of defective items that can be found in the sample c. The OC curve pertains to a specific plan, i.e. to a combination of the sample size n and the acceptance criterion or level c. Moreover, some fundamental considerations concerning sampling inspection and process control lead to the conclusion that acceptance sampling was introduced many years ago might be replaced by efficient computerized sampling control tools.
Keywords: Statistical quality control, decision making, acceptance sampling plan, consumer's risk, producer's risk, acceptable quality level, lot tolerance percent defective.

Water balance techniques have been extensively used to make quantitative estimates of water resources and the impact of man's activities on the hydrologic cycle. On the basis of the water balance approach, it is possible to make a quantitative evaluation of water resources and its dynamic behaviour under the influence of man's activities. In this paper, an attempt has been made to describe the methodologies to understand and evaluate the various recharge and discharge components of ground water balance equation and to establish the recharge coefficient with a view to work out the ground water potential of an area.

The application of Time Independent Schrodinger's Wave Equation to understand the behavior of a particle in a single rectangular potential barrier in one dimension has remained as one of the fundamental theories of potential barrier problems in quantum physics. This work chiefly focuses on the transmission of a particle, basically an electron, in such a barrier from a different perspective- behavior of transmission probability at constant barrier height (energy)-barrier width product. Three basic cases of relationship between energy of the particle and barrier potential energy have been discussed: energy of particle greater than barrier energy, energy of particle equal to barrier energy and energy of particle less than barrier energy, where appropriate approximations have been utilized to calculate the transmission probability in each case. The results have led to major observations: if the energy of barrier is scaled by a constant and its width is scaled by the same constant such that the barrier height-barrier width product always remains constant, then for a particular value of particle energy, the transmission probability remains constant for the first and third case whereas in the second case, the transmission probability reduces with decreasing energy and vice versa.
Keywords: Barrier height-barrier width product, rectangular potential barrier, scaling parameter, Schrodinger's Wave Equation, transmission probability.

Data mining is a process of obtaining trends or patterns in historical data. Such trends form business intelligence that in turn leads to taking well informed decisions. However, data mining with a single technique does not yield actionable knowledge. This is because enterprises have huge databases and heterogeneous in nature. They also have complex data and mining such data needs multi-step mining instead of single step mining. When multiple approaches are involved, they provide business intelligence in all aspects. That kind of information can lead to actionable knowledge. Recently data mining has got tremendous usage in the real world. The drawback of existing approaches is that insufficient business intelligence in case of huge enterprises. This paper presents the combination of existing works and algorithms. We work on multiple data sources, multiple methods and multiple features. The combined patterns thus obtained from complex business data provide actionable knowledge. A prototype application has been built to test the efficiency of the proposed framework which combines multiple data sources, multiple methods and multiple features in mining process. The empirical results revealed that the proposed approach is effective and can be used in the real world.
Keywords: Data mining, actionable knowledge discovery, multi-method mining, multi-feature mining, multi-source mining.

The results of high time resolution of solar flare type III and U burst at National Space Centre, Sg Lang, Selangor, Malaysia have been reported. We selected data in the meter - wave region solar radio spectral observations of the 2012 March 9th flare. During that period, a strong M 7.9 solar flare was recorded from solar Active Region 1429. It is clearly seen an inverted type occurs between 310 MHz till 384 MHz within 1 second. The group of type III burst also occurred before type U. During this period, M6 solar flare occurred in the active region AR 1429 starting at 03:32 UT and ending at 05:00 UT, with the peak at 04:12 UT. There is also a halo of Coronal Mass Ejections (CMEs) produced shortly after, and is expected to deliver a glancing blow to the earth's magnetic field sometime March 16th. In conclusion, we believed that the behavior of type III should be critically understood in order to predict the formation of type U burst. This also approve that the CALLISTO system possible to detect a radio burst signal at a precise time.
