The effects and significance of the models on the response variable and on biodiesel (methyl ester) yield derived from pure castor oil were evaluated using a response surface curve and analysis of variance. The statistical... Read More

Triphenylamine Based Organic Dyes with Different Spacers for Dye-Sensitized Solar Cells: A First Principle Study
Authors : M. Prakasam,R. Baskar,K. Gnanamoorthi ,K. Annapoorani ,


The four novel metal-free organic dyes Ref. Dye, SP-SO, SP-OS and SP-OO, containing a Triphenylamine (TPA) unit as the π-bridge were designed and the impacts of the spacer on the photovoltaic performances were studied. The Geometry structure, energy levels, light-harvesting ability and ultraviolet-visible absorption spectra were calculated by using Density Functional Theory (DFT) and... Read More

Enhancing Productivity by Enabling a Value-Chain Orientation
Authors : Rajesh Shankar Priya,Steffen Ihlenfeldt,


Automobile Industries constantly face challenges of production stoppages resulting in huge losses. This is often due to supply issues resulting in non-availability of material at the right time, in-full and at the right location. The demand variability from the customer’s downstream processes causes several planning issues to the supplier that often leads to decline in customer service... Read More

Experimental Analysis of Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) on Ground Granulated Blast-Furnace Slag (GGBS) based Geopolymer Concrete
Authors : Shabarish V. Patil,Sachin Chabbi,Soundarya Chabbi,Nikhil Pudakalkatti,Pavana Patil,


Geopolymer is a type of concrete that has become more popular in recent years due to the fact that is significantly more environmental friendly than standard concrete. Geopolymer Concrete is produced by reacting with high rich aluminate and silicate bearing materials using an alkaline activator solution. In this present work, the suitability of non-destructive method to find the compressive... Read More

Structural, Williamson-Hall Plot and Size-strain Analysis of MgxNi1-xAlxFe2-xO4 Ferrites
Authors : Sheela S. Gandhad,Preeti M. Patil ,S.N. Mathad,Leena V. Hublikar,P.R. Jeergal,S.U. Durgadsimi,R.B. Pujar,


In the present study Mg-Ni-Al ferrites materials were synthesized by wide-eyed ceramic method (solid-state method). The formation of cubic single phase was affirmed by XRD of Mg-Ni-Al ferrite. The variation of lattice constant (a) with dopant aluminum (Al) is assigned to Vegard’s law. The crystallite size(D), lattice constant(a), micro strain(ε), X-ray density (Δx), dislocation...
