About the Conference

Mechanical and Industrial Engineering deals with recent developments and practices adopted in various projects in different engineering disciplines and specializations - Rock Dredging; Concrete Technology; Grid Computing; Electric Propulsion & the Stationary Plasma Thruster; Turbo charging; Ultra filtration, Nan filtration & Reverse Osmosis; FACTS Devices; Sensors; Advanced Materials for Aircraft and Helicopters; Data Communication and Network Protocol; Satellite Communication Systems; Optoelectronic Devices; Wireless Communication; Applications of CFD Techniques in Aero-propulsive Characterization of Missiles; Hazardous Waste Management; Liquid Fueled SCRAMJET Combustors; Armor Materials and Designs; Heat Transfer in Nuclear Reactors; Defense Electronics Systems; World Class Manufacturing; Value Engineering & Engineering Ethics. Mechatronics is an interdisciplinary branch of mechanical engineering, electrical engineering and software engineering that is concerned with integrating electrical and mechanical engineering to create hybrid systems. In this way, machines can be automated through the use of electric motors, servomechanisms, and other electrical systems in conjunction with special software. A common example of a Mechatronics system is a CD-ROM drive. Mechanical systems open and close the drive, spin the CD and move the laser, while an optical system reads the data on the CD and converts it tobits. Integrated software controls the process and communicates the contents of the CD to the computer. Robotics is the application of Mechatronics to create robots, which are often used in industry to perform tasks that are dangerous, unpleasant, or repetitive. These robots may be of any shape and size, but all are preprogrammed and interact physically with the world. To create a robot, an engineer typically employs kinematics (to determine the robot's range of motion) and mechanics (to determine the stresses within the robot). Robots are used extensively in industrial engineering. They allow businesses to save money on labor, perform tasks that are either too dangerous or too precise for humans to perform them economically, and to ensure better quality. Many companies employ assembly lines of robots, especially in Automotive Industries and some factories are so robotized that they can run by themselves. Outside the factory, robots have been employed in bomb disposal, space exploration, and many other fields. Robots are also sold for various residential applications, from recreation to domestic applications. The field of mechanical engineering can be thought of as a collection of many mechanical engineering science disciplines. Several of these sub disciplines which are typically taught at the undergraduate level are listed below, with a brief explanation and the most common application of each. Some of these sub disciplines are unique to mechanical engineering, while others are a combination of mechanical engineering and one or more other disciplines. Researchers are working on applying their wireless and mobile research to transportation, health care, education, collaboration and environmental sustainability. Projects already underway include safe and efficient road transportation, autonomous driving, wireless medical implants, mobile video delivery, multiparty wireless videoconferencing and energy harvesting. The Conference sometimes is conducted in collaboration with other institutions. IOAJ encourage and invite proposals from institutes within India to join hands to promote research in various areas of discipline. These conferences have not only promoted the international exchange and cooperation, but have also won favorable comments from national and international participants, thus enabled IOAJ to reach out to a global network within three years time. The conference is first of its kind and gets granted with lot of blessings. The conference designed to stimulate the young minds including Research Scholars, Academicians, and Practitioners to contribute their ideas, thoughts and nobility in these disciplines of Engineering. IRNet received a great response from all parts of country and abroad for the presentation and publication in the proceeding of the conference. I sincerely thank all the authors for their invaluable contribution to this conference. I am indebted towards the reviewers and Board of Editors for their generous gifts of time, energy and effort. It’s my pleasure to welcome all the participants, delegates and organizer to this international conference on behalf of IRNet family members.

Editorial

India is quickly overpopulating with growth outstripping China's . The big question is whether the land can sustain such huge pressure. For example in spite of being gifted with abundant water, huge population is making per-capita clean water scarcer. No one knows if India's economy will be strong enough to rescue such a huge mass of poor people. Recently, to tackle this problem, the Indian Government has started a mass employment program to help employ civilians living in rural areas. However, some note that this will be a "spoonful of reform for a sea of misery. India desperately needs to improve its social infrastructure such as roads, rail, power grid, water, communications infrastructure, housing. Since the turn of the century, the global recession has affected most businesses, including Mechanical Engineering. As a result of globalization there is tremendous pressure to perform or deliver. Hence the technologies to be adopted by the industries are to be latest and most efficient to facilitate growth. Significant achievements have been made worldwide in the area of mechanical engineering like Diesel Engines, Pumps, Hydraulic and Pneumatic, Compressors, Gears, Bearing, Drilling , thermal systems etc and still considerable innovative research is being continued to address the technical and economical challenges. In such a scenario it is necessary to discuss the recent developments in the field of mechanical engineering and its allied areas. Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is one more advancement which also has a bright Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is one of the branches of fluid mechanics that uses numerical methods and algorithms to solve and analyze problems that involve fluid flows. Computers are used to perform the millions of calculations required to simulate the interaction of fluids and gases with the complex surfaces used in engineering. Even with simplified equations and high-speed supercomputers, only approximate solutions can be achieved in many cases. Ongoing research, however, may yield software that improves the accuracy and speed of complex simulation scenarios such as transonic orturbulent flows. Initial validation of such software is often performed using a wind tunnel with the final validation coming in flight test.Electro chromatic mirrors / Auto dimming mirrors use a combination of opto electronic sensors and complex electronics (sensors, circuit boards, micro-controllers, etc.) that constantly monitor ambient light and the intensity of light shining directly on the mirror. As soon as sensors detect glare, the electro chromatic surface of the mirror becomes darker to protect driver’s eyes and their concentration. The conference designed to stimulate the young minds including Research Scholars, Academicians, and Practitioners to contribute their ideas, thoughts and nobility in these disciplines of engineering. It’s my pleasure to welcome all the participants, delegates and organizer to this international conference on behalf of IOAJ family members. We received a great response from all parts of country and abroad for the presentation and publication in the proceeding of the conference. I sincerely thank all the authors for their invaluable contribution to this conference. I am indebted towards the reviewers and Board of Editors for their generous gifts of time, energy and effort.
