High speed machining of low rigidity structures is a widely used process in the Aeronautical industry. Along the machining of this type of structures, the so-called monolithic components, large quantities of material are removed using high removal rate conditions, with the risk of the instability of the process. Very thin walls will also be milled, with the possibility of lateral vibration of them in some cutting conditions and at some stages of machining. Chatter is an undesirable phenomenon in all machining processes, causing a reduction in productivity, low quality of the finished work pieces, and a reduction of the machine-spindle's working life. In this study, a method for obtaining the instability or stability lobes, considering dynamic behaviors of machine structure is presented. Thus a stability lobe diagram (SLD) has been developed analytically for machining of thin ribs. The frequency response function (FRF) of the milling process has been predicted along with real and imaginary parts. The mathematical tool MathCAD 8 Professional is used to simulate the FRF and stability lobes. The experiment setup is proposed to find the impulse response of the machine structure at tool tip. Finally the stable and unstable region for high speed machining process has been predicted analytically.

THE paper consists the study of effect of source to substrate bias voltage (applied to an n-channel MOSFET and a p-channel MOSFET) on the leakage current component. The optimum value which minimizes the leakage current is found for n-MOS as well as p-MOS circuit (using simulation as well as mathematical analysis). This minimization of leakage current component eventually leads to a reduction in power dissipation (standby leakage power). On application of this leakage power reduction technique, power dissipation is reduced by about 50-70%.

Keywords: Reverse body bias, subthreshold leakage, optimum value, body effect, weak inversion.

The increase of waste PVC (code 3) plastic productions is serious environmental problem issue for today. PVC plastic consumption is increasing day by day all over the world. Out of 100% plastics 6% PVC plastic used from total all types of plastic use. PVC plastic can serve as a potential resource with the correct treatment and its converting as hydrocarbon raw materials or as a useful fuel. PVC plastic has high chlorine (Cl) content and percentage is 56% by total weight. PVC plastic incineration process needs highly energy demand and during incineration time is creation toxic chloro emission and is ceating environmental, ecology and human health problem. Chlorine component need to be removed by using alkali wash before using produce fuel. Thermal degradation process with 5% Zinc Oxide (ZnO) can reduce chlorine content result in polymer chain generating product with heavy molecular weight and some uncontrolled Cl content. The thermal degradation of waste PVC produces only 35.6% of liquid product, some light gas 34.47% and rest of residue29.93%. Thermal degradation temperature was use 75-400 ºC. This produced fuel can be used for feedstock refinery for potential energy generation.

Mobile ad hoc network is a special type of wireless network in which a mobile nodes forming a temporary network without the aid of any infrastructure or centralized administration. This paper analysis about improving the performance of route cache in Dynamic Source routing protocol. The Dynamic Source Routing (DSR) for mobile ad hoc networks maintains route caches to store routes that have been found via flooding or through promiscuous overhearing. But DSR route caches have the disadvantages like stale route cache entries, incomplete error notification, and insufficient cache size etc. In this paper, they propose to develop a reliable and effective cache management technique for the DSR protocol. In this technique, initially, we estimate a combined weighted function for each route stored in the cache. Then based on the combined weight function, the routes are arranged such that routes with minimum length and traffic load, maximum energy level and freshness are listed first in the route cache. The route cache is updated such that routes with least weight functions are removed from the list. In the route prediction mechanism, when a link is likely to be broken, it will select the most reliable route as an alternate route from the sorted route cache, before the link breakage. The DSR composed of two phases, namely Route Discovery and Route maintenance, which work together to discover and maintain the source route from the source to the arbitrary destination. Dynamic Source Routing (DSR) for mobile ad hoc networks maintains route caches to store routes that have been found via discovery or through promiscuous overhearing. But DSR route caches have the disadvantages like stale route cache entries, incomplete error notification, and insufficient cache size etc. So it affect the performance of DSR protocol which cause long delay, increase the packet loss, increase the overhead, and decrease the performance of protocol. Thus it requires some mechanism to improve the route cache performance in DSR protocol. This paper will discuss the different strategy of the route cache and the drawbacks of the mechanism.

Key Words: DSR, Load Balance.

Improved Impulse noise Detector (IID) for Adaptive Switching Median (ASWM) filter is presented. The idea behind
the improved impulse noise detection scheme is based on normalized absolute difference with in the filtering window, and then
removing the detected impulse noise in corrupted images by using ASWM filter. This detection scheme distinguishes the noisy
and noise-free pixels efficiently. A weighted median filter, based on standard deviation within the filtering window is used in
ASWM filtering. The application of absolute difference, will distinguishes the difference between a noise free and noisy pixel
more precisely. The proposed scheme results in efficient detection of noisy pixels. Extensive simulation results show that the
proposed scheme significantly outperforms in terms of PSNR and MAE than many other variant types of median filter for
random-valued impulse noise. More over IID scheme provides better noise detection performance.

In old time, people were making their buildings and structures in a way to be in proportion with the climate and native culture of their area. Currently, with the most advanced science of architecture, design secrets of the old buildings have been discovered. "Shovadan" is an example of such design that was built in cold regions of Iran such as Hamadan City; so these spaces can be used in winter to use the heat of the earth. Shovadans are series of corridors and hallways of the underground that were used in cold regions by people. So, in this article, we purpose to change the Shovadan's application in order to have as a thermal tunnel to use the earth energy. They must be designed just like previous samples as a corridor in the earth, but in more depth, so we can have and use the energy of the earth in more volumes. In this case, the heat of the earth will be guided in side of the buildings, and in addition to save energy consumption, we will share the old architecture as today's style because of the developing of technology day to day.
