Call drop factors and possible solutions
Aparna Singh and Richa Pandey

Of the numerous performance metrics applied to cellular telephone systems, probably none is more important for customer satisfaction than the system drop call rate. Customers are more sensitive to call dropping than to call blocking at initiation. Proper system design and operation involve keeping the drop call rate as low as possible. Today a number of mobile subscribers are grappling with the issue of frequent call disconnections or ‘call drop ‘ Dropped call is the common term...

Analysis of friction stir welding process for 304l stainless steel
Swapnil J. More and Niyati Raut

This paper focusses on Friction stir welding (FSW) invented by Wayne Thomas in The Welding Institute (TWI) at London in 1991. Friction stir welding (FSW) is a solid state joining process which means joining of metal plates without reaching the melting point of the material to be welded. FSW uses a non-consumable rotating tool which is plunged into workpiece material due to which heat is generated between tool shoulder and workpiece surface which results in plastic deformation of material to...

Seasonal metabolic variation of lipid content in freshwater bivalve Lamellidens marginalis (Lamarck, 1819)
Padewar, S.K.

Lipid is a water-insoluble biomolecule .Lipid has a high solubility in nonpolar organic solvents such as chloroform. The simplest lipids are the fats .The term fats is also used as a general synonym for lipids, so the more precise terms triacylglycerols or triglycerides are preferable for the simplest lipids. Triacylglycerols are used primarily for energy storage in animals. More complex lipids are phospholipids, glycolipids, and cholesterol, are the major constituents of biological cell...

Future perspectives in cardiac allograft vasculopathy
Cottini, M., Dominici, T., Sbaraglia, F., Pergolini, A., Di Stefano, G., Polizzi, V., Feccia, M., Buffa, V., Lilla Della Monica, P. and...

Background: Coronary allograft vasculopathy (CAV) limits long-term survival after heart transplantation, and screening for CAV is generally performed on an annual or biannual basis. It is usually detected by conventional coronary angiography (CCA). Coronary computed tomography angiography (CCTA) is currently not recommended for CAV screening due to the limited accuracy reported by early studies. Technological advances such as 64-slice dual-source CCTA might justify re-evaluation of this...

Removal of dimethylsulphide in a bench-scale biofilter: Some analytical solutions
Kirthiga, M. and Rajendran, L.

A mathematical model describing the biofiltration of dimethyle sulphide (DMS) in a bench-scale biofilter is discussed. This model contains the diffusion of the compounds through the biofilm and degradation of the compound along the biofilter column. The model proposed here is based on the mass transfer in gas-biofilm interface and chemical oxidation in the gas phase. Analytical expressions pertaining to the dimethyl sulphide concentration in the gas phase and bio-film phase have been derived...

Role of bioinoculants in the biodegradation of lingo-cellulosic waste (bagasse)
Maya M. Jaybhaye and Satish A. Bhalerao

Lignocellulose, the major component of biomass, makes up about half of the matter produced by photosynthesis. It consists of three types of polymers- cellulose, hemicellulose and lignin that are strongly intermeshed; therefore their recycling is indispensable for the carbon cycle. Each polymer degraded by a variety of microorganisms which produce a number of enzymes that work on the waste material. For the present research work agro-industrial waste such as bagasse were selected this was...

Managing technology in quantum age
Nirmal Kundu, Chandan Bhar and Visvesvaran Pandurangan

Technology is changing at a very fast pace and quantum of changes, many of the times, overtakes imagination. Science and Technology are getting redefined and the Quantum theory has totally shaken the age old belief of Newtonian mechanics. As Science is progressing and technology is closely following science, managing technology in this Quantum age has become far more difficult. In this article, an attempt has been made to focus on the issues of Quantum age and argue why a radical change in...
