Title : Modelling and Analysis of Flexure based Compliant Microgripper
Country : India
Authors : M.B.Patil || B.B.Deshmukh

Abstract: In the world of miniaturisation, Micro-systems Technology has proven their usefulness in the various fields, such as biomedical, material science, automotive etc. Typical micro system requires precise microgripper to achieve safe transport/handling of micro-sized objects. Handling of the components needs to consider the correct gripping force in order to protect the micro part from excessive gripping force. Here, a need of a device for measurement of gripping force is raised........

Title : Structural Optimization of Excavator Bucket Link
Country : India
Authors : Ritesh Sarode || S. S. Sarawade

Abstract: The excavators are heavy duty earthmoving machines and normally used for excavation task. During the excavation operation unknown resistive forces offered by the terrain to the bucket teeth is transformed to the other parts. Excessive amount of these forces adversely affected on the bucket link and may be failed during excavation operation. Thus, it is very much necessary to provide not only a better design of parts having maximum reliability but also of minimum weight and cost, keeping design safe under all loading conditions........

Title : Analysis of Absorptive Muffler for Inductive & Resistive Damping
Country : India
Authors : P. B. Bhadke || K. A. Mahajan

Abstract: The analysis of mufflers has always been a great challenge. In this paper Glass wool as a absorptive material with different density has been used to analyze mufflers. This is used to evaluate the transmission loss. Results from the present approach have been validated through comparison with the finite element method (FEM) results using COMSOL 5.0. Two different muffler configurations are considered, representing the effects adding lining with different densities desired broadband attenuation performance can be achieved, from computational analysis it is observed that liner with different densities, to tackle different frequency regions, a desired attenuation performance can be achieved, thus offering wider scope in silencer design.

DOI : 10.9790/1684-15008050530-36      

Abstract: Textile industry grows at fast rate to cater the need of ever increasing population. It is energy intensive industry. It is observed that heat loss in various processes is very large. Currently, developing countries are facing problem of shortage of energy. Due to globalization, it is necessary to be competitive by reducing energy consumption. There is huge scope to recover waste heat energy in textile industry. Heat recovery gives economic benefit to the industry. Heat recovery system requires less investment and payback period is small.

Keywords –Waste heat recovery, steam, boiler, condensate, economical, payback period.

Title : Performance And Emission Analysis of waste vegetable oil on C.I. Engine
Country : India
Authors : A. S. Wagh || K. G. Nawandar || J.A. Patil || S. H. Gawande

Abstract: A design methodology for biodiesel production from waste cooking oil is proposed. The proposed method is flexible to the biodiesel process using various catalyst types: alkali and acid catalyst in homogenous and heterogeneous forms, and different process: enzyme process and supercritical process. A two-step approach of hydrolysis and esterification processes is also considered. Waste cooking palm oil consists of a mixture of triglyceride (e.g., trilaurin, tripalmitin, triolein, tristearin, trilinolein and trilinolenin) and free fatty acids e.g. palmitic acid, stearic acid, oleic acid, linoleic and linolenic acid).......

Title : Analysis of Stresses in Bolted Flange - A Review
Country : India
Authors : M.J. Jagale || A. N. Surde

Abstract: The modern world depends largely on various mechanical components to survive, one of the components is flange and any pipe interconnection requires flange. Flanges are primarily used where a connecting or dismantling joint is needed. Flange joints may include joining pipe fittings, valves or any integral component within the piping system. This paper reviews on behaviour of bolted flange and its analysis.
