But humans often forget about the undesirable effects of plastic use which consecutively leads to pollution which must be completely removed or at least reduced. Plastic is considered one of the most harmful pollutants of the environment as it would not decay and it has become one of the major problems for the world. The harmful gas which is being produced by this agent leads to tremendous health related problems. So, executing these wastes in soil stabilisation helps to reduce the risk of natural destruction which is caused due to precipitation or other aspect and also it help in decreasing the waste in an adequate amount. This implies that stabilisation using waste plastic strips is an economic method where the use of unusable materials as plastic and other cheaply materials of plastic can be used which is easily obtainable. The soil is the key element of nature and all the basic needs of life are fulfilled by the soil. Soil stabilisation is the process by which it improves the physical properties of soil, such as shear strength, bearing capacity which can be done by the use of controlled compaction or addition of appropriate admixtures like bitumen, cement, lime, sand, fly ash or by using geotextiles, geosynthetics etc.</p> <p>This paper reflects that the plastic strips which are taken from used plastic bottles, are mixed with the soil, and with this, a series of California Bearing Ratio (CBR) tests were conducted. The soil sample is prepared by adding plastic strips with varying percentages (0.5%, 1%, 2% and 3%) and with lengths (1 cm and 3 cm, the thickness is 0.5 cm for both, so the aspect ratios are 2 and 6 respectively). And the results and conclusions are summed up which shows that the use of plastic in the soil in an appropriate amount really aids in improving its CBR value</p> Asfaque Habib Mohsin Jamal Nehal Ahmed Abhijit Mondal ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2018-10-05 2018-10-05 6 Special: 2 01 06 Innovation in Concrete by Effective utilization of by-product in concrete <p>Concrete is a combination material of coarse aggregate,fine aggregate joined with a cement and &nbsp;strengthens, Aggregate composed through cement and water the blend forms a slurry that is simply dispensed and shaped, The cement reacts &nbsp;with the water and &nbsp;ingredients of concrete to system a hard mix and &nbsp;binds the material together in to a strong s material that as many uses in industry.

Such volume changes when it comes in contact with water leads to the problem of stability of structure and cracks are developed on the structures founded on such soils. The implementation of Granular piles is a major ground improvement technique used in field to improve bearing capacity and lowering the settlements of soft clay layers. On the other hand the granular piles are unable to resist the tensile uplift forces acting on foundation by the expansive soils. Presently the most widely used technique for resisting uplift of foundation are concrete piles. Granular Anchor Pile (GAP) is a new promising foundation technique to increase the pullout resistance behavior of foundations founded on the soft expansive soils. This paper presents the results of a study that is carried out to compare the pull-out characteristics of a single Granular Anchor Pile (GAP) and concrete pile in soft clay using the finite element package PLAXIS 3D software. The results clearly indicate that the uplift capacity of GAP is more than concrete pile, and according to the parameters the uplift capacities increases with increase in their length (L) and diameter (D).</p> jerin joseph ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2018-10-05 2018-10-05 6 Special: 2 27 30 Concrete Pavement Blocks Using Coconut Shell as Coarse Aggregate <p>Pavement blocks made using cement concrete is very popular in Kerala, India due to its easy installation and durability. Pavement block paved roads, parking spaces and footpaths are a common sight in Kerala. One of the major constituent for the concrete to make such pavement blocks is coarse aggregates (crushed granite). Concrete is one of the most used manmade materials in the world. The mass use concrete is increasing due to growth of infrastructure development and construction activities in the Kerala. Presently Kerala is facing a shortage of coarse aggregate which is sourced from granite quarries due to stringent rules and regulations set by the Government of Kerala. The mass production coarse aggregate such as granite impact the local ecology balance and affect the environment hence causing ecology imbalance. More than 90% of the coconut production in India takes place in the southern states of India including Kerala. Coconut shell is the strongest part covered in coconut. Coconut shells are an agricultural waste and present disposal problems for the local environment. This paper presents the results of a study conducted to investigate the utilization of Coconut shell aggregate as replacement coarse aggregate material in the concrete pavement block manufacturing.</p> Neeraj U K Sooraj D.V.

The numerical or statistical model cannot predict the actual in-situ behavior of soil under loading conditions. It is the accuracy of the mathematical tool, which plays a significant role in predicting the behavior of the model and helps in an experimental model. Geotechnical engineers face many difficult challenges when design structure over soft soils. These include lateral displacement and movement, potential bearing failure, Differential settlement, local and global instability. Cement fly-Ash Grave (CFG) piles with composite foundation are widely used for ground improvement technique. It would be help to reduce the Geotechnical difficult problem of structure over soft soil.&nbsp; This paper aim is to the parametric study of CFG pile using the FEM method. This numerical analysis had carried out using FEM software PLAXIS 2D. In this paper study two dimensions axisymmetric model validated by Finite element approach (FE) using with different Diameters of a pile, length variation, strength of pile, Cohesive of Soft Soil. discussed were on based of FE models results; the pile stress under prescribed settlement&nbsp; as well soil stress distribution under load and pile-soil stress concentration ratio of the CFG Piles for evaluate bearing capacity under the soft soil. The results indicate that the soil pressure distribution and stress on the pile is relatively to compare the load-deformation behavior with the model tests.</p> N B Umravia C.H.

Water table depth, footing dimensions, loading type etc., are various factors which affect the bearing capacity of soil. Depth of water table was considered in the study to find out the effect on bearing capacity. From the Terzaghi’s bearing capacity theory, water table depth corrections were applied to the ultimate bearing capacity of soil. These levels of water table are parallel to the base of the footing at a distance b from the ground surface. In this paper an attempt was made to find out the bearing capacity of cohesive soil with the presence of level of water table inclined 45 degrees to the base of the footing. The idea of the study is generally soil exists in stratified alternative layers of soil. If the aquifer layer of soil exist below the foundation is inclined and the level of water table is inclined below the foundation. A shallow depth, surface loading, smooth base mild steel circular footing (diameter(B)-50mm, height-50mm) was used in the study. The WTD maintained at different elevations, where the ratio of depth of water table below the base (b) to the base width of the footing (B) are 0, 1, and 2. The samples were kept 96 hours for soaking. Tri-axial test loading frame was used to apply compressive force at a strain rate of 1.25 mm/min. The 10% of settlement ratio ((settlement/width of footing)×100) was considered for the computation of ultimate bearing capacity. This paper emphasizes on the particular topic of the inclined water table depth effect on the bearing capacity of soil.</p> Upendra M Venkateswarlu P Shiva Prasad K. J.B.

Due to extreme loading such as bomb explosion in a terrorist attack, gas explosions and huge impact of car in parking area and due to some natural calamity like tsunami leads to failure of primary vertical support. Different guidelines such as the General Services Administration (GSA) and the Unified Facilities Criteria (UFC) addressed the structural progressive collapse due to the sudden loss of a main vertical support. The aim of this study is to analyse a reinforced concrete frame having shear wall. The building is designed using IS 456-2000 and IS-1893 (part-1):2002 considering zone-IV and response reduction factor as 5. A progressive collapse assessment according to the GSA guideline is carried out for a typical 14 storey reinforced concrete (RC) frame having shear wall. The investigated cases included the removal of a corner column, long side middle column and short side shear wall for the first storey of RC frame. A non linear stage construction option available in ETABs is used to assess the given frame for different loss of load carrying vertical element such as columns and shear wall. The hinge formation in RC frame reveals that there is no collapse of structure. The bending moment and displacement at the column or shear wall loss location was compared for different removal portion.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Aqib A Parmar K.B. Parikh Y.K.

Research has demonstrated that during conceptual design, designers continuously search for potential design results, comprising of issues, alternative solutions, and assessment criteria, in various outline spaces. Design thinking is characterized as a systematic and imaginative process that involves with a person in opportunities to experiment, create and prototype models, gather criticism, and restructure. Few characteristics cannot be taught in the class with the only help of literature. A few attributes (e.g., visualization, creativity) that a good design thinker should possess have been identified on field and similar observations are made. It is a key procedure that supports iterative philosophy for students as they have to apply in their core discipline branch to gain specific knowledge to solving real engineering problems. The essential elements of the design thinking process are the identification of problem, establishment of objectives and its criteria, synthesis, analysis, construction, testing and its assessment. This paper investigates how far there is a requirement for a design thinking process and suggests an alternative conceptualization that is both appropriate with design thinking principles and viable for design thinking informative. Further it is necessary to include a different types of realistic constraints, such as economic factors, safety, consistency, aesthetics, ethics and social impact. The objective is to distinguish the features and attributes of design thinking and discuss its importance in promoting students problem thinking abilities in the 21st century. We here will focus on the concept of design engineering and how can we produce sound engineers that have a realistic goal of creating a product that would be helpful for solving the core problem such that further upgradation is not needed. In this paper, we will consider the Case Study of “Sustainable Development of Surat City” using Design Engineering Methodology and will explain how to give a best development on accordance to the performance cost and various other considerations unlike traditional method where development was kept in the center, here as a design engineers we have defined problems related to the user domain primarily.</p> Darshan Mehta Keyur Prajapati ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2018-10-05 2018-10-05 6 Special: 2 94 99 Image Classification Integrated with Chatbot <p>To get desired information from Internet is not that easy as so lot of information available.

Pipes are designed on the basis of various parameters such as pressure, temperature and velocity of fluid flowing through it. This paper examines unmethodical procedure for line sizing with critical thickness method, assessing an experimental approach over a steam line, having a material of construction ANSI B-36.10, A106 Gr-B, seamless pipe, operating at temperature of 200⁰C, by following the velocity based line sizing method with a trial and error approach. Many cases are considered in this trial and error approach, where their resultant velocities are compared with an optimal velocity, which is selected based on fluid characteristics and pressure, to find out a proper pipe line size. Pipe sizing in industries is mostly done on the basis of past experiences rather than a standard procedure. Due to which immense amount of capital has to be invested in the initial phase of plant installation or during future expansion when the revenue from the industry is inconsiderable. Even after overdesigning, the corrosion of pipe occurs and due to which life of pipe reduces. That is why pipe designers sometime provides factor of safety more than what is required. The overall objective of this paper is to standardized a methodological procedure for line sizing based on velocity and thereby providing a supplementary tool for pipe designing.</p> </td> </tr> </tbody> </table> Papil Gautam Alu Venkat Rao Kattassery Jose Thomas Pratik Patel ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2018-09-30 2018-09-30 6 Special: 2 152 159 Training Need Identification of Future Entrepreneurs <p>Training Need Identification (TNI) is a very crucial element in the field of training and development.

Our project on reduction in road accident and at braking time accelerator assembly is disconnected means accelerator is zero therefore increase in safety. At high speeds under panic situation or emergency braking conditions, it is not possible to fully engage front brake lever and twist the throttle to neutral position at the same time because our hand can’t do three things at time. i.e. (exert brake lever Pressure, release throttle in fraction of second, maintain grip on accelerator handle). This engages front and/or rear brake partially and doesn’t let go off throttle action fully. As result braking distance considerably increases so occurs the road accidents. Our team idea is to when front and/or rear tire brake is applied then the accelerator is zero automatically. This possible when the brake applied and accelerator assembly is disconnected.</p> Ankit Patel Vinay R.

The behaviour of the piled raft foundation under the vertical load on raft and the combined vertical and static horizontal load on raft was studied. In the present study, the numerical analysis on piled raft foundation was performed with Plaxis 3D finite element tool. The piled raft models of 3x3 pile group configuration and different thickness of raft were adopted in the finite element analysis. These finite element models were validated first and then the behaviour of piled raft foundation models subjected to vertical load and static horizontal load on raft were examined. The piled raft foundation was carried out on cohesionless soil. The coherionless soil was modeled as Mohr’s Coulomb model and the embedded piles and raft were modeled as linear elastic models. The variable parameters for study were different thickness of raft and the pile head connections with raft. The rigid pile head connection and hinged pile head connection of piles with raft were analyzed for the axial forces, lateral displacement and bending moment on piles in the present study. The interacting behaviour of piled raft foundation with hinged and rigid pile head connections was found different.

The needs and demands of taller structures in construction industry and real estate industry are increasing day by day all over the world. These structures are flexible in nature and constructed as light weight as possible (when seismic load acts on a RCC structure it play as a functions of self-weight), which have less values of damping, makes them vulnerable to undesirable vibrations. This vibration in the structures creates major problems to serviceability requirement or demand of the structure and also reduces structural integrity with possibilities of failures. Construction decades or a Current trend uses several new techniques adopted to reduce earthquake and wind induced structural vibration.</p> <p>In recent year’s considerable large concentration has been paid to research and development of structural control systems and devices with particular importance on mitigations of seismic and wind responses of buildings. Many vibration-control control systems are categorised measures like active, semi-active, passive and hybrid Control methods have been developed. on-structural components are sensitive in nature due to large amount of ground motions which produces floor accelerations, velocities, and displacements. At the time of an earthquake, the buildings produce motion, resulting in peak floor accelerations higher than the peak ground acceleration. Thus earthquake ground motion can causes significant or severe structural damages. Therefore, the demands of structural response control system increase worldwide.</p> <p>This article deal with review of RCC structures with some most worldwide used structural response control system or devices such as damper, base isolation and bracing, Article also comprises recent development in these control systems with their structural reduction efficiency. In this study, reinforced concrete structure is taken for seismic performance evaluation. This RC building is modeled with different structural control system such as base isolator, damper and bracing with use of commercial computer software. After that various ground motion data is applied to the building model to evaluate structural response. Nonlinear time history analysis is carried out for building model with each control system (base isolation, damper and bracing) and the result of seismic response of each of control system is compared with other control system.</p> Ajay Chaubisa B.M.

It has the capacity to ruin lives of people. The structure must be so designed to resist the tsunami forces effectively with low damage to structure. The primary cause of tsunami is Strong Earthquake at the sea bed which causes movement of wave with large velocity. Various analysis methods are available according to GSA and UFC-DoD criteria. The purpose of designing for the progressive collapse of the structure is to design a structure to resist the devastating events like tsunami and not to have a structure which is tsunami proof structure. For achieving this, the same methodology is adopted as in earthquake resistant design such as Weak Beam and Strong Column Design. The structure must ensure sufficient time to evacuate before its collapse.

But in practices of RCC frame structures it is constructed in various stages. According to the stability of RCC frame varies at each construction stage. Even during RCC construction freshly placed concrete floor is supported on previously casted floor by formwork. Thus, the loads assumed in traditional analysis will vary in transient situation. Obviously, results obtained by the conventional analysis will be unsuitable. Therefore, the frame should be analysis at every construction stage taking into consideration variation in loads. The phenomenon known as Construction Stage Analysis considers these uncertainties precisely. Construction stage analysis revealed more criticality of the structural component during construction stage due to additional forces, which must be considered during designing and analysis phase of the high rise building. Hence, it is advisable to analyze the structure with construction stage analysis.</p> Jay Katrodiya A.R. Darji S.P.

T- Shaped Deep mixing column (TDM) is a newly emerging technology for this purpose. Numerous researchers have worked on this method of soil improvement through laboratory experiments, in situ testing and numerical modelling. Available literature on this topic have presented previous studies by various researchers on weak soil improvement using T- shaped deep mixing column methods, where the focus has been on the mechanical properties such as unconfined compressive strength, lateral displacement of column, vertical bearing capacity, ground surface settlement, area replacement ratio, stress concentration ratio and consolidation behavior of the improved ground. T shaped soil-cement deep mixed (TDM) columns are used nowadays to support embankments on soft ground for highway and railway engineering. Unlike disadvantages of the conventional method of deep mixing, such as insufficient mixing, grout spilling, and column strength decreasing with depth, this new method has advantages on material saving which further decreases the cost of the total project making it more economic, efficient and viable. TDM method also has advantages for reducing differential settlement under embankment load to increase embankment stability. The paper gives the insight into how TDM method is more efficient solution for the improvement of soft ground under embankment over conventional DM method for reducing surface settlement, lateral displacement of column at larger depth and improving the vertical bearing capacity of soil.</p> Rashmi Patel Jigisha Vashi ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2018-10-05 2018-10-05 6 Special: 2 183 187 Evaluation of Fertilizers and Pesticides in Environmental Areas <p>Agriculture development contains to remain the most important objective of Indian planning and policy.
