The study was conducted to find possible leakages associated with dams as well as finding mitigation measures to reduce dam failures. The Very Low Frequency Electromagnetic (VLF-EM) equipment was used to measure the conductivity of the subsurface at a spacing of 5m and 10m. The measured data were converted to filtered real data using a filter operator. Linear features presumed to be fractures were inferred from the VLF-EM profile. These fractures were less than 9m in depth. In all, eight local positive peak amplitudes depicting areas of high conductivity and suggesting possible areas of seepages were identified on the filtered (EM) response. The results suggest internal erosion at distances of 72m, 80m, 85m along traverse 1 and 25m, 30m, 33m, 70m and 82m along traverse 3 from the spillway. Based on these results, it's therefore necessary to embark on mitigation measures such as replacements of the rock slabs and removal of the underlying mud sediments to enhance the longevity of the dam.

Molecular techniques such as immunohistochemistry, ELISA and western blotting is highly beneficial to determine the existence of an environmental stressor, such as cadmium (Cd) heavy metal by looking at its activation, concentration and expression toward Metallothionein-1 (MT-1) protein. In this study, conducted experiment for 4 weeks, in order to investigate effect of Cd heavy metal treatment toward MT-1 protein of sea urchin Deadema setosum. This study was conducted in LIPI Ambon, Indonesia laboratory in 100 × 60 × 70 cm3 aquarium 6 tank. Each tank was filled with 200L of seawater that being changed once a week. Concentration of treatment were 0.0, 1.0, 3.0, 6.0, 9.0, and 12.0 μg/L Cd solution. Each tank was filled with 7 individual of D. setosum as 7 replication. MT-1 activation examination was done in liver organ of D. setosum using immunohistochemistry, MT-1 concentration measurement was done using ELISA, while MT-1 expression examination was done using western blotting at Physiology Laboratory of Medical Faculty of Brawijaya University, Indonesia. Data concerned with concentration of MT-1 was analyzed using One Way Anova and advance test was one using 0.05 Duncan Test. Result of this study showed that Cd treatment is highly significant in increasing concentration of MT-1; higher Cd content would resulted higher concentration of MT-1. Concentration of MT-1 in concentration 12 μg/L is the highest compared to control. Histological view of liver organ of D. setosum experiencing MT-1 protein activation based with immunohistochemistry is highly appropriate with each recorded concentration of of MT-1 protein. This results showed that MT-1 has the potential as seawater pollution biomonitoring of Cd heavy metal pollution viewed from D. setosum biomolecular level.

The proposed histogram adaptive fuzzy (HAF) filter is particularly effective for removing highly impulsive noise while preserving edge sharpness. This is accomplished through a fuzzy smoothing filter constructed from a set of fuzzy IF-THEN rules, which alternate adaptively to minimize the output mean squared error as input histogram statistics change. An algorithm is developed to utilize input histogram to determine parameters for the fuzzy membership function. As compared to the conventional median filters (MF), the proposed method has the following merits: it is simple and it has superior performance compared to other existing ranked-order filters (including MF) for the full range of impulsive noise probability

Keywords:Histogram adaptive fuzzy (HAF) filter, median filters , membership functions.

Face Recognition using Discrete Cosine Transform (DCT) for Local and Global Features involves recognizing the corresponding face image from the database. The face image obtained from the user is cropped such that only the frontal face image is extracted, eliminating the background. The image is restricted to a size of 128 × 128 pixels. All images in the database are gray level images. DCT is applied to the entire image. This gives DCT coefficients, which are global features. Local features such as eyes, nose and mouth are also extracted and DCT is applied to these features. Depending upon the recognition rate obtained for each feature, they are given weightage and then combined. Both local and global features are used for comparison. By comparing the ranks for global and local features, the false acceptance rate for DCT can be minimized

Keywords: Discrete Cosine transform, Local feature, Global feature.

The retrieval performance of content-based image retrieval (CBIR) systems still leaves much to be desired, especially when the system is serving as an interface to an image collection covering many different topics. The problem of missing semantical information about the images leads to great numbers of false matches because of misleading similarities in the visual primitives that are retrieved. In this paper we used the feature extraction to improve the efficiency of the content based image retrieval system. Our Experimental results shows there is an improvement in proposed system.We used CLAHE(Contrast Limited Adaptive Histogram Equalization)for better results. At the end we had analysed the performance of CBIR system using CLAHE and without using CLAHE by calculating precision and recall.

Topology control is adjusting the network topology according to some criteria. The criteria can be scalability, network efficiency and much more. In order to have an efficient network, the packets in the network should be load balanced. In this paper a novel scheme is developed which balances the load on a finer granularity. Flow slice scheme ensures uniform load sharing, intra flow packet ordering and minimum hardware complexity. The theoretical analysis in this paper is also validated through discrete event simulations

The use of Shear walls for improving the performance of high rise concrete structures is very common now a day. It has been observed that the shear wall, if not used for full height of the structure, are also have same effectiveness in resisting the lateral loads. Here, an attempt is made to work out the height of Shear walls which will be just sufficient in resisting the lateral loads as good as the shear walls having full height equal to the height of the structure itself.

This letter proposes a method of reversible data hiding method in encrypted images using DCT.Reversible data hiding is a technique to embed additional message into some cover media with a reversible manner so that the original cover content can be perfectly restored after extraction of the hidden message. The data extraction can be achieved by examining the block smoothness. This letter adopts a scheme for measuring the smoothness of blocks, and uses the closest match scheme to further decrease the error rate of extracted-bits. The experimental results reveal that the proposed method offers better performance over side match method. For example, when the block size is set to 8×8, the error rate of the Lena image of the proposed method is 0%, which is significantly lower than 0.34% of side match method

Transactional patterns are used to specify flexible and reliable composite Web services. A transactional pattern is a convergence concept between workflow patterns and advanced transactional models. These are of coordination patterns and as a structured transaction. This project proposes an event-driven approach to validate the transactional behavior of service compositions. The transactional behavior verification is done either at design time to validate recovery mechanisms consistency, or after runtime to report execution deviations and repair design errors, and therefore, formally ensure service execution reliability. By using the trust based rule ontology to specify and check the transactional behavior consistency of service composition, our approach provides a logical foundation to ensure service execution reliability.

Over the last three decades the World Wide Web has undergone a continuous evolution. To respond to ever increasing demands in the field of web applications are constantly proposed standards and techniques in order to develop even more effective and high performance applications. These new technologies have made possible the emergence of a new generation of Web applications called Rich Internet Applications. Rich Internet Applications are built using successful technologies like Ajax. The purpose of this study is to measure and analyze the performance as one of the key topic in an application. Performance study of web applications is a complex process that depends on different factors. The methodology used in this study is testing Query Cache technique used mainly in MySql database. To have a clear view of the efficiency of this technique, besides the explanation of its configuration, we will make a comparison with real data, pre and post activating this technique. Testing is performed on an application developed by Ajax technology. The results of experiments shown that in sections with more query to be executed is a significant difference between activating and not activating the Query Cache. We conclude in this study that Query Cache it is a useful technique recommended for use in all web applications where as back-end is used MySql.
