BRAIN TUMOR SEGMENTATION FROM MRI USING GLCM
SHUBHANGI S. VEER, DR. PRADEEP M. PATIL
pp 131-135
Abstract: In this paper, an attempt has been made to summarize the information about the human brain anatomy, information about the brain tumor and cropping the exact location of tumor. X-ray, MRI, Ultrasound etc. are different techniques used to scanning brain tumor images. Radiologist refers these images to get detail information about tumor to analyze the diseases. Digital image processing is one of the useful tools for preprocessing images in medical area for getting more clear and exact details in earlier stages. This is helpful to the physicians and practitioner for diagnoses diseases.
FINAL REPORT OF FINITE ELEMENT ANALYSIS OF CRACKED COMPOSITE BEAMS
GYADARI RAMESH, Dr.VVRLS.GANGADHAR, SAZEED AHMED
pp 136-142
Abstract: High speed machinery and light weight structures require high strength-to-weight ratios. For this reason, in recent years, the use of anisotropic reinforced composites, where strength-to-weight ratios is very high, has increased substantially in the fields of mechanical engineering. Cracks occurring in structural elements are responsible for local stiffness variations, which in consequence affect their dynamic characteristics. In this thesis finite element analysis is done on a beam to investigate the deformations, stresses and frequencies without and with a crack metals and for composite materials. The materials considered for investigation are metals Aluminum alloy 7475 and Stainless Steel, Composite materials Kevlar, Carbon Fiber and High Strength Carbon FiberStatic, and Modal analyses is done for the beam like structures without and with cracks. Analysis is done in ANSYS.
ENERGY SECTOR AND SOLAR ENERGY POTENTIAL IN TANZANIA
ESEBI A. NYARI, TATIANA POGREBNAYA, LUGANO WILSON
pp 143-149
Abstract: This paper presents the current energy situation, energy demand, and the potential of solar energy in Tanzania. Tanzania is blessed with abundant resources such hydro, wind, solar, geothermal, natural gas, coal etc. However, today the country energy sector specifically electricity depends mainly in hydro energy resource (36%) and fossil fuel (62%) such as oil and natural gas. Annual energy consumption of the country is approximated to be more than 22 million tonnes of oil equivalent (TOE), where as the rate of electricity demand increase is about 10 – 15 % per annual. Natural gas is one of fast growing sector, and at present the country has eleven proven onshore natural gas deposits. It is expected that more than half of electricity generation will come from natural gas in the near future. Moreover, Tanzania receives between 2800 – 3500 hours of sunshine per year and a global radiation of between 4 to 7 kWh/m2/day. This makes the country to be one of potential area for solar energy applications in both electricity and other thermal applications. However, use of solar energy potential for both thermal and electricity generation are still in development stages.
