A Study of Reduced Beam Section Profiles using Finite Element Analysis

Kulkarni Swati Ajay Kulkarni Swati Ajay
2013 IOSR Journal of Mechanical and Civil Engineering  
Reduced beam section (RBS) is one of the several connection types, which is economical and popular for use in new steel moment frame structures in seismic zone. To form RBS connection, some portion of the beam flanges at a short distance from column face is purposefully trimmed so that the yielding and plastic hinge occurs within this area of flanges. Use of RBS connection is found advantageous due to: a) the shear force in the panel zone is reduced; b) the force demand in column continuity

Although, radius cut RBS is qualified by ANSI/AISC, FEMA codes, various flange cut shapes like constant, tapered, radius cut, drilled holes are possible to reduce the cross sectional area of beam flanges. The purpose of this study is to understand behavior of RBS beam-to-column moment connections for various flange cut geometries. This document represents nonlinear finite element analysis of the connection models performed using the computer program, ANSYS/Multiphysics

Niosomes are basically a novel drug delivery system in which an encapsulated drug is given which improved its bioavailability by releasing the drug at particular site and increasing its therapeutic effect. The drug is release in controlled manner for long period of time and also at particular targeted site. various other drug delivery system such as liposomes, nanospheres, microspheres, etc. liposomes are first system but it shows number of drawbacks such as high cost and stability problems.

2021 arXiv   pre-print
We present a demonstration of REACT, a new Real-time Educational AI-powered Classroom Tool that employs EDM techniques for supporting the decision-making process of educators. REACT is a data-driven tool with a user-friendly graphical interface. It analyzes students' performance data and provides context-based alerts as well as recommendations to educators for course planning. Furthermore, it incorporates model-agnostic explanations for bringing explainability and interpretability in the

This demonstration focuses on the agglomerative clustering of students based on their performance (i.e., incorrect responses and hints used) during an in-class activity. This formation of clusters of students with similar strengths and weaknesses may help educators to improve their course planning by identifying at-risk students, forming study groups, or encouraging tutoring between students of different strengths.

Foundations of data imbalance and solutions for a data democracy [article]

Ajay Kulkarni, Deri Chong, Feras A. Batarseh
2021 arXiv   pre-print
Dealing with imbalanced data is a prevalent problem while performing classification on the datasets. Many times, this problem contributes to bias while making decisions or implementing policies. Thus, it is vital to understand the factors which cause imbalance in the data (or class imbalance). Such hidden biases and imbalances can lead to data tyranny and a major challenge to a data democracy. In this chapter, two essential statistical elements are resolved: the degree of class imbalance and

Furthermore, statistical measures which are appropriate in these scenarios are discussed and implemented on a real-life dataset (car insurance claims). In the end, popular data-level methods such as random oversampling, random undersampling, synthetic minority oversampling technique, Tomek link, and others are implemented in Python, and their performance is compared.

Context-Driven Data Mining through Bias Removal and Data Incompleteness Mitigation [article]

Feras A. Batarseh, Ajay Kulkarni
2019 arXiv   pre-print
The results of data mining endeavors are majorly driven by data quality. Throughout these deployments, serious show-stopper problems are still unresolved, such as: data collection ambiguities, data imbalance, hidden biases in data, the lack of domain information, and data incompleteness. This paper is based on the premise that context can aid in mitigating these issues. In a traditional data science lifecycle, context is not considered. Context-driven Data Science Lifecycle (C-DSL); the main

Results from both case studies are evaluated using common data mining metrics such as: coefficient of determination (R2 value) and confusion matrices. The work presented in this paper aims to re-define the lifecycle and introduce tangible improvements to its outcomes.

2017 IJIREEICE  
Speeding and drunken drive are the basic reasons for vehicle accident. Many lives could have been saved if emergency service could get accident information and touch in time and if drunken drivers are prevented from driving. Vehicle accidents are one of the most leading causes of casualty. The time between an accident occurrence and the emergency medical personnel are dispatched to the accident location is the important factor in the survival rates after an accident. By eliminating that time

Anesthetic challenges in pediatric moyamoya disease: A report of two cases

Vidhu Bhatnagar, SN Kulkarni, Ajay Sharma, SandeepBasawaraj Dolla
2020 Brain Circulation  
Moyamoya disease (MMD), a rare cause of pediatric stroke, is a cerebrovascular occlusive disorder resulting from progressive stenosis of the distal intracranial carotid arteries and their proximal branches. In response to brain ischemia, there is the development of basal collateral vessels, which gives rise to the characteristic angiographic appearance of moyamoya (puff of smoke). If left untreated, the disease can result in overwhelming permanent neurological and cognitive deficits. Whereas

The classic pediatric presentation in moyamoya is recurrent transient ischemic attacks (TIAs) and/or completed/repeated ischemic strokes. Surgical revascularization, including direct and indirect techniques, remains the mainstay of treatment and has been shown to improve long-term outcome in children with MMD. Various risk factors identified for perioperative complications are as follows: history of TIAs, severity of disease, intraoperative hypotension, hypercapnia and hypovolemia, and substantial reduction in hematocrit intraoperatively. Thus, providing perianesthetic care to pediatric patients undergoing revascularization procedure for MMD is like walking a tightrope, and we present two such cases handled successfully.

Transoral robotic surgery in dilated cardiomyopathy patients: Anaesthetic considerations

Anita Kulkarni, Uma Hariharan, Ajay Kumar Bhargava
2015 Global Anesthesia and Perioperative Medicine  
Dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) is a serious cardiac condition resulting in progressive heart failure and death. There have been several reports of anaesthetic management of DCM patients for various surgeries. Trans-Oral Robotic Surgery (TORS) is a minimally invasive approach to radical surgery of head and neck cancers. It utilizes the da Vinci™ robotic system to excise deep-seated intra-oral tumors in difficult to reach areas. We present a case series of 3 patients with DCM for TORS and their anesthetic management.

2016 Procedia Engineering  
Squeeze film dampers (SFD) are lubrication elements which provide viscous damping in rotating systems. Squeeze film dampers in rotating machinery provide structural isolation, reduce the amplitudes of rotor response to unbalance and also assist to suppress rotor dynamic instability. They have been long used to subdue instability and vibration issues that are difficult to solve using conventional bearings like journal or ball bearings. Numerous studies have been tried to produce mechanically

They provide the possibility to control the dynamic characteristics of conventional fluid dampers. Magneto-rheological fluids are viscous fluids suspended with micron sized ferromagnetic particles which on application of magnetic field undergo changes in their physical and mechanical properties like viscosity, stiffness, etc. This characteristic can be used to build squeeze film damper whose damping properties will change based on the input force. In present work a typical SFD is designed and development using MR fluid and tested for different amount of damping. It is observed that the damping provided by MR fluid increases with increase in magnetic field and the amplitude of vibration reduces by 70% at critical speeds.
