ABSTRACT: Knowledge discovery tools and techniques are used in an increasing number of scientific and commercial areas. They further augment the analysis and knowledge processing of voluminous Information. Expert finding systems are a web enabled Knowledge Discovery from databases frameworks. Lot has been talked about effective, accurate and well balanced expert recommendations but many shortcomings of the proposed solutions have come into picture. In this Paper we try to elucidate and model Expert Recommendation issues from multidimensional, multi-criteria and real world’s perspectives by evaluating some selected systems. Another aspect of expert recommendation prototype introduced in this paper is personalization. Due to information overload and other issues of recommendations, an internet user feels it difficult to search the expert information relevant to them. Local search is yet another field that faces this problem due to unavailability of expert, maturation effect of environment and changing patterns of user likings and Interest. This work portrays a personalized expert recommendation system which takes into account the profile attributes of a user and recommends results that are highly rated by other users of similar profile. The introduced method does not depend only on the ratings given by the user as a feedback but it also considers various other parameters which increase accuracy of recommendations. This prevents malicious results to be highly rated and recommended.

ABSTRACT: In present work lactic acid is produced by microbial fermentation of sugar obtained from tamarind kernel powder (TKP) and its feasibility has been studied for use as raw replacement for glucose. Saccharification of tamarind seed powder is carried out by acid hydrolysis using sulfuric acid (H2SO4). Optimization of acid catalyst concentration and hydrolysis time was carried out in a steam autoclave to get higher yield in short time. The highest yield of reducible sugar of 0.71 g/g of substrate has been obtained by using 0.5 N H2SO4 at 121°C, in 30 min. This tamarind kernel hydrolyzate (TKH) after neutralization and charcoal treatment is used as a source of reducible sugar for production of lactic acid. Four commonly used lactobacillus strains were used to study the suitable microorganism for the fermentative production of lactic acid from TKH sugar media. Out of them the strain giving better result Lactobacillus casei -2125, is selected for the further studies. The rate of glucose consumption and lactic acid production by Lactobacillus casei -2125 for standard glucose media and for TKH sugar media was studied in batch fermentation. The results for the standard media of glucose and the TKH was comparable and show nearly 90% conversions in 66 to 72 hour of reaction time, respectively. It gives production of lactic acid up to 81 gl-1 with productivity rate of 1.12g / l / hr. A yield of 0.58 g of lactic acid is obtained from each gram of TKP. It shows that the TKP can be used as a suitable and cheap raw material for the lactic acid production.

ABSTRACT: From the immemorial time water has been the part of all basic human activities. The water we are most concerned with is fluid and fresh and is least available. As economic activities are growing, the demand of water is also growing. At the same time increase in population is lowering per capita availability of fresh water. Exploiting more and more water resources would put more pressure on environment- ecology which has already become fragile. As per all codes of concrete the water used for mixing and curing should possibly be the potable water. Constructional activities play major role in infrastructural development. Water has undisputed important place in civil construction and so far no alternative to water is available.Chemical limits of water for concrete, suggested by different codes of concrete indicate that non potable water can be used as mixing water. Reuse of non-potable water like grey water can reduce the pressure on fresh water resources.On this background, investigations on all possible uses of all types of waste water in construction industry, is the need of the hour. Present study has been conducted to investigate the influences of use of grey water o properties of cement.

ABSTRACT: The objectives of this study are to evaluate Jatropha seeds for oil, and biogas production by using seed cake. The seeds were chemically analysed following the AOAC, 1990 method [1]. The chemical analyses of the Jatropha seeds indicated that the wild Jatropha seeds have high moisture content (5.4%), ash content (6.6%) and oil content (33.2 %) compared with cultivated one which showed 4.43% moisture content, 5.2% ash content and 24.2% oil content. The seeds of cultivated Jatropha have high protein (20.2%) and carbohydrate (10.3%) compared with wild Jatropha which showed 18.5% protein and 0.9% carbohydrate while both are similar in fiber content (35.6, 35.7 %). Based on the chemical analysis the wild Jatropha seed cake was tested for biogas and bio-fertilizer production. The chemical analysis of the seed cake showed that the seed cake has 6.3% moisture and 93.7% total solid. Out of these 54.4% is organic carbon and 39.2% protein. It has 0.9% Phosphorus, 6.3 % nitrogen and the C/N ratio was 9:1. On the hand digested slurry showed 6.65% protein and 5.3% phosphorus. It is obvious that fermentation of seed cake resulted in substantial increase of phosphorus. The seed cake was fermented to investigate the potentiality for biogas and bio-fertilizer production. One kilogram of seed cake produced 24 liters of biogas. Microbiological investigation indicated that the microorganisms involved in the fermentation process were Bacillus and Lactobacillus bacte-ria. The pH was acidic (5.5) at the beginning of fermentation process (zero time), it reached 8.0 after 6 hr, then dropped to 6.5 after 24 hr and became more acidic (4.5) after 72 hr.

Abstract: Gamma ray shielding experiments and simulation of it with MCNP code was carried out with three metallic materials; Copper, Aluminium and Lead using 10mCi 0.662KeV Cs-137 gamma ray source. The study was to understand the attenuation strength of these materials in relation to one another; and the behaviour of the emergent photon intensities in relation to the thickness of the shield. These materials of different thicknesses were placed in turns behind the radiation source and the emergent radiation was counted using NaI (TI) detector. These arrangements were again simulated using MCNP4c codes and the results equally presented and compared with that from the experiment.It was discovered that photon shields, unlike those for charged particles, are governed by the exponential decay law and the flux of shielded photons is a complex mixture of scattered and unscattered photons; and that increase in the thickness of the absorber lowers the photo peak intensity detected.It was equally noticed that while only 0.6cm thickness of lead was required to reduce the gamma photon intensity to half of its original value, about 1.8cm of Copper and 3.6cm of aluminium was required to do the same work lead has done, showing lead as a far better absorber of gamma photon than copper and aluminium and can be used to shield against gamma ray; in turn, copper is a better absorber than aluminium. The relationship in the absorbing properties of these three materials in terms of their half thickness th1/2could be expressed thus:th1/2lead =1/3th1/2copper = 1/6th1/2aluminium. Interesting to note isthe striking similarities between the two sets ofgraphs fromMCNP simulation and experiment.This goes to show the simulation work as veritable tool for modelling certain real life situations, and very useful in particles transport equations.

ABSTRACT: Chemical pesticides are resistant to biodegradation beside carcinogenic in nature even at trace levels. Effort to remove pesticide by conventional methods has several inherent disadvantages of longer time or cost and this bottleneck can be avoided by utiliz-ing nanoparticles as it can mineralise at a faster rate. Nanoparticles are syntheised by reduction of metal ions using physical, chemical and biological process either alone or in combination. In the present study biosynthesis of silver nanoparticle (AgNPs) using hydrophilic fungal secretes (HFS) of Penicillium pinophilum and degradation of chlorpyrifos pesticides in different pH environment has been reported. The AgNPs formed were characterized by using UV-Visible spectrum, FTIR and XRD. The HFS is the supernant of 72h incubated 10 g of mycelial mat in 100 ml deionized water at 28°C. AgNPs were synthesized by the reaction of HFS with 1 mM silver nitrate solution at 1:5 ratio. The spectrophotometric absorption peak at 420 nm is due to the Surface Plasmon response (SPR) properties of AgNPs. FTIR anlysis of HFS revealed functional groups are 1096 cm-1 (C-O & C-C Stretch), 1664 cm-1 (C=C Stretch), 2907 cm-1 (C-H Stretch), 2931 cm-1 (C-H Stretch), 3475 cm-1 (O-H, N-H Stretch). The outranking of functional groups in Ag+ reduction using depletion percent of FTIR bands before and after reaction revealed the O-H (Alcohols, phenols) and C-H (Alkenes) functional groups showed highest (>40%) whereas functional group esters were the lowest (<10%). AgNPs was examined by the XRD pattern of diffraction peaks showed at 2θ values of 32.23°, 46.18°, 64.82° and 77.21° assigned to the planes of (111), (200),(220) and (311) faced centre cubic (fcc) of silver nanoparticles. The chlorpyrifos degradation by AgNPs showed highest in mild acidic (pH-6) followed by alkaline (pH 9) and astrong acidic (pH 0.3) environment.

Abstract: The main source of air pollution in Dhaka City is emissions from brick kilns. This study assessed the main factors that affect the city’s air pollution levels, as well as the contribution of the different types of brick kilns located in different zones in Dhaka. The significance of air pollution variable and the health impact were examined and policy analysis with respect to kiln type was done. The specific variables analyzed were PM10, PM2.5, SOx, NOx, NO2, CO, and O3; of these only PM10 and PM2.5 exceeded the Bangladesh air quality standards and those prescribed under the World Health Organization air quality guidelines. The study found that vertical shaft brick kilns (VSBK) had the lowest PM10 and PM2.5 emissions, whereas the zigzag types were the second lowest emitters. But in terms of SOx and CO emission, zigzag, gave the lowest values. For CO2, the hybrid hoffman kiln (HHK) had the lowest emission. The PM10 and PM2.5 data from the brick kilns were used in the health effect model and it was shown that zigzag kilns’ emissions can be reduced by 60%; VSBK, by 83%; and HHK, by 57%. These results can be used to avoid harmful health effects and to determine the disability-adjusted life year, as well as save on health care cost.

ABSTRACT: Multi-spectral Diffuse Reflectance imaging provides information of the tissue transformation towards malignancy which can be studied by the diffused reflectance of the intense white light by the cervical tissues at the absorption peaks of the oxygenated haemoglobin at 545 and 575 nm. This technique can be used as a diagnostic tool for early detection of tissue abnormalities in cervical cancer. The presence of specular reflection and the motion artifacts associated with sequential recording of images degrade the quality of the DR images. This paper reviews the various image processing algorithms and assess their potential for improving the quality of multi-spectral DR images of cervix and the ability to identify the most malignant site for cervical tissue biopsy. This will help in the establishment of Multi-Spectral Diffuse Reflectance Imaging system as a screening technique for the early detection of cervical cancer.

ABSTRACT: Database contains huge amount of data. In order to make the query retrieval easier the content of the database is much organized. The query language used to retrieve the data stored in the database is SQL. In addition to the organized structure of data in the database there exists many query optimization techniques to make the query retrieval fast. SQL statements are declarative. That means SQL query can be written in different ways to retrieve the same query result. It is trivial to find which organization of the SQL query retrieve is query result with a minimum time. This paper discusses various optimizer approaches used for query retrieval from database and finds the better approach among them. The various query optimizer approaches discussed in this paper is Cost based ,Heuristic based and Learning based . Cost based approach focus on the statistics of the relations . Heuristic approach works based on certain predefined rules and Learning based approach works by correcting the incorrect statistics used to execute the query.
