Abstract: The transformation from conventional hydro mechanical control system to modern digital control represents a revolutionary change with new capabilities, easy operation and lesser workload. Full Authority Digital Engine Control (FADEC) is a system consisting of digital computer known as Electronic Control Unit (ECU) with auxiliary components for controlling aircraft engine and propeller. It is produced for both piston engines and jet engines. The term Full Authority indicates that there is no manual override available, thus placing full authority over operating features to the computer. This technology with a characteristic feature of single lever control runs the engine in optimal..............

Abstract: Planetary gears are very popular as a power transmission and extensively used in different industrial fields like automobiles, helicopters, aircraft engines, heavy machinery, and a variety of other applications to perform speed reduction due to several advantages over conventional parallel shaft gear systems. The advantages include compactness, high torque to weight ratios, reduced radial bending loads. Many researchers have worked to optimize the radial size of planetary gear box. In this paper 3stage planetary gear box is redesigned by reducing one stage which will be suitable for machine tool application where the space and load constrains is the prime objectives. Analytical and numerical results are compared to see the effectiveness of modified planetary gear box.

Abstract:This paper demonstrates the application of Grenade Explosion Method (GEM) for the design optimization of Plate-Fin Heat Exchanger (PFHE). Maximization of the effectiveness and minimization of the total annual cost are considered as two objective functions. Thermal modelling is done by the ε-NTU method to estimate the heat exchanger effectiveness and pressure drop. Fin pitch, fin height, the fin offset length, cold stream flow length, no-flow length and hot stream flow length are considered as six design parameters. One application example is presented to demonstrate the effectiveness and accuracy of the Grenade Explosion Method. The results of optimization using GEM are validated by comparing with those obtained by using Non- Dominated Sorting Genetic Algorithm (NSGA-II).

Abstract: Hydroforming process has increasing demand in automotive and aerospace industry. As the demand of this technology or process increasing gradually it requires the proper research and development on all aspects in hydroforming process. Hydroforming pressure and coefficient of friction between (COF) tube and die are important parameters in hydroforming process. This paper presents results which were obtained by implementing the early developed mathematical models for estimation of hydroformig pressure[2]and COF [4] on T-Shaped tube hydroformed parts. By applying corresponding formulae hydroform pressure required and COF between hydroformed part and die is determined by using analytical and numerical approach .The results obtained from analytical and numerical approach are compared.

Abstract: Planetary gear boxes are used in different applications like power transmitting systems of machine tools and so on. Planetary gear boxes have the advantages of high power transmiting ability, large reduction in a small volume, multi stage reduction combinations, and axial direction of power path. Gears in planetary gear boxes sometimes get short life due to wear and breakage by repetitive load during operation time. In this work, a design evaluation for the high power transmitting through planetary gear box at low space application was performed to ensure the gears' stability and durability during operation time.

Abstract: Biogas produced from organic wastes is a potential alternative to the partial substitution of petroleum derived fuels because it is from renewable resources that are widely available. Biofuels derived from biomass are considered as good alternative to petroleum fuels. Biogas, a biomass derived fuel can be used in internal combustion (IC) engines. The main three objectives of this research was extraction of biomethane from biogas by using high pressure water scrubbing, conversion of diesel engine into biomethane engine. Injector nozzles were replaced by spark plugs and spark-ignition system with high-voltage was installed to ignite mixture. Biogas mixer system (venturi type) with..............

Abstract: Biogas upgrading and the production of bio-methane nowadays is a state-of-the-art-process of gas separation. A number of different technologies to fulfil the task of producing a bio-methane stream of sufficient quality to act as a vehicle fuel or to be injected into the natural gas grid are already commercially available and have proven to be technically and economically feasible. Nevertheless, intensive research is still in progress to optimise and further develop these technologies as well as to apply novel technologies to the field of biogas upgrading. All technologies have their own specific advantages and disadvantages and this review shows, that no technology is the optimal solution...............
