In this research, steel mesh of 0.62 mm diameter and aspect ratio of steel fibers 50 mm were used for preparing the specimens. Steel mesh of different percentages (5%, 10% and 15%) was added in parallel orientation and steel fibers were added with 5%, 10% and 15% in both random and parallel orientation. The results of SIFCON and FERRO cement were compared with the normal cement mortar. FERRO cement and SIFCON showed better results on strength parameters and stress-strain behaviour compared to normal cement mortar.</p> 2021-01-10T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Erudite Journal of Engineering, Technology and Management Sciences Analysis of Multi-Storey Building Considering Wind Effects 2020-10-27T03:25:40+00:00 K. Jagan Moan Reddy Habtamu Melesse Dicha <p>In this modern era of building construction, the demand for tall structures has been increasing immensely. The horizontal land space is almost exhausted in many places. This has forced people to occupy vertical spacing. The increasing demand in the construction of tall buildings has lead to development of new technologies in the field of construction. As the height of the building raises high above the ground, the wind forces become predominant. This results in the abnormal behavior of the structure. For the safety of the structure, a proper analysis and clear understanding of the wind forces are required. The main factor to be considered is the maximum storey displacement. The top storey displacement of the structure is studied for a multistory building. This structure is provided with shear wall at various positions in order to reduce the lateral displacement. A shear wall is provided to counteract the effects of lateral load acting on it. Seismic load and wind load are the two common loads shear wall is designed to carry. A shear wall of 200 mm thickness is provided in this study. Five different shear wall positioning have been provided and the top storey displacement of the structure is studied. The research aims at understanding the behavior of the structure every time the shear wall position is changed. Software analysis of the structure has been carried out with the help of E-Tabs. The detailed analyses have clearly shown that there is a significant change in the maximum storey displacement at the given shear wall positioning. The shear wall positions can be improvised in order to provide better stiffness and moment of resistance to the structure. The values of each and every analysis have been noted and detailed performance of the structure is studied.</p> 2021-01-10T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Erudite Journal of Engineering, Technology and Management Sciences Experimental Investigation on Domestic Refrigerator Providing Subcooling by Using Eco Friendly Refrigerant 2020-10-27T03:50:33+00:00 Siddavatam Naresh Kumar Reddy <p>Domestic refrigerators using different refrigerants such as R11, R12, NH3, CO2, etc. The major problems facing these refrigerants are environmental impact, toxicity, flammability, and high pressure, making them more dangerous than other refrigerants according to environment and safety issues. Present R134a refrigerant using in domestic refrigerators because of their thermal properties, but it may be harmful to human health. So, isobutane (R600a) is a better replacement of R134a because it is ecofriendly than all other refrigerants. The current work focuses on increasing the vapor compression refrigeration system's performance by providing a 150 cm length of a subcooling coil for different (R134a and R600a) refrigerants. The results showed that the refrigeration system's sub-cooler enhanced system performance by reducing the compressors' work input and increasing refrigeration capacity. R600a showed better performance than R134a refrigerant at all conditions but took care of R600a refrigerant because of its explosive nature.</p> 2021-01-10T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Erudite Journal of Engineering, Technology and Management Sciences The Evaluation of Compressive Behavior of Column Exposure to Fire using Abaqus 2020-10-27T03:55:26+00:00 T. Ram Prasanna Reddy DVSP Rajesh <p>In this paper, an attempt to validate the results of an experimental study with an analytical model undertaken to understand the percentage loss in compressive strength of reinforced concrete column (RCC) before and after exposure of fire as per ASTM E 119 between experimental work and software (ABAQUS). The results of experimental work is taken from the standard journal having specified column dimensions, material properties and loss in compressive strength before and after exposure of fire. Using software, the above column is modelled, analyzed and compared results of NSC and HSC with experimental work.</p> 2021-01-10T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Erudite Journal of Engineering, Technology and Management Sciences Impact of Various Parameters on Buildings Which are Pre- Engineered 2020-10-27T04:00:47+00:00 P. Aditya Milind <p>The experimental study is conducted to analyze the effect of different parameters on pre-engineered buildings and comparison of pre-engineered building with conventional building. In first stage effect on structure for different roof angles and bay spacing is checked and the optimum structure is selected. Further effect of column height on structure are studied. Comparison made based on steel consumption, displacement, base reaction and moment values. From the models most optimized is selected and compared with conventional roof truss model. From pre-engineered buildings model with height 5.45m, roof angle 5.71° and bay spacing 7m is selected and compared with conventional structure of same properties but deigned using truss members. Finally results shows that pre engineered buildings are optimum and reduces steel consumption by approximately 25-30%.</p> 2021-01-10T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Erudite Journal of Engineering, Technology and Management Sciences Predictionand Optimizationof WeldingBead Shape Parametersin Stainless Steel Cladding 2021-01-10T10:42:20+00:00 Sambaturu Gopi <p>In this paper, the process parameters for the optimum weld bead in the flux cored arc welding (FCAW) of super duplex stainles steel is posed on mild steel (IS-2062). Conducting the experiment and take the input and out process parameters for the further process. The structure of the welding bead has many consistency characteristics, such as the front height, width, the back height, width and the penetration depth of the welding bead. In order to consider these quality attributes together in the proper selection parameters, the modificatied artifical neural networks approach is used to evalute the optimization of each welding process parameter of weild bead geometry and also to define with optimum weilding bead geometry</p> 2021-01-10T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2021 Erudite Journal of Engineering, Technology and Management Sciences
