Approach to calculate solar radiation inside a semi-cylindrical greenhouse

  A semi-cylinderical greenhouse is simple in construction, requires less material and can withstand high wind pressure. The transmission of solar radiation through the curved surface is dependent on angle of incidence of solar radiation on the cover. A calculation procedure has been developed for the transmission of obliquely incident beam radiation through a semi-cylindrical greenhouse. An analysis has also...

Publication process for engineers

  Journal publication is an important indicator of research productivity for individual researchers as well as academic institutions. However, for young faculty members the publication process can appear equivocal and daunting. If the academic does not actively engage themselves early in this process, then her or his career becomes an uphill (and sometimes insurmountable) battle. To assist the young academic,...

Dynamic wave soil structure interaction analysis of a two way asymmetric building system DSSIA-3D

  In this paper structural response to dynamic loading, which is expressed in terms of displacements of the structure, is studied. A two-way asymmetrical multistory building model is subjected to bi-directional harmonic and earthquake loadings. The time histories of the vertically and horizontal displacements and rotation of the roof are obtained using the scaled boundary finite-element...

Identification of insilico 3D structure of amylase (Drosophila melanogaster) and comparative computational studies

  Comparative studies are useful in the prediction of validated 3D structure of a query protein (Amylase). Modeler is used for structure prediction of amylase. All the structural models are verified by results of ramachandran plot, Whatif server, Prosa (ll) and Procheck (Checks the stereochemical quality of a protein structure, producing a number of postscript plots analyzing its overall and residue-by- residue...
