One of the major regions of project management is connection management, that is extensively explained in the literature, mostly because of the good relevance that is certainly assigned to this kind of area of project administration, and due to its effect on the accomplishment of the project, particularly IT projects executed by distributed teams. At present, there isn't a typical classification or standards for Cloud Computing. It may take a while to outline the main element attributes of Cloud Computing according to routines in the industry. Cloud Computing entails a collection of crucial technologies to deal with resource sharing according to enterprise needs. Depending on our techniques in the aspects of service provisioning and alternative layout, we consider the subsequent pair of important empowering technologies might perform essential functions in this innovative stage: virtualization technologies and Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA). The key aim of the paper is to present latest state of research in the area of software project management and enterprise cloud solutions for evaluation of storage architectures.

Title :: Modification of Properties of Hot Mix Asphalt Using Pyrolized Carbon Black As Modifier
Country :: Nigeria
Authors :: Eme, D.B || Nwaobakata, C.
Page No. :: 06-12

Over the decades, there had been several attempts to commercialize the product of the pyrolysis of scrap tyres and also other carbonaceous materials but none had really recorded a boom. This is because the pyrolyzed carbon black and the other products of the pyrolysis of scrap tyres lacked market demand. Thus, this study presents an overview of the laboratory demonstration work with beneficial use of pyrolyzed carbon black (CBP) as a modifier in hot mix asphalt (HMA). The Marshall stability and flow test were carried out on the unmodified HMA to determine the optimum bitumen content (OBC) which is found at 5.2%. The OBC is then used to calculate the modified HMA specimen with varying percentage of modification ranging from 2% to 10%. From the Marshall Mix design for the laboratory test results.........

Title :: Evaluating the performance of Asphalt concrete Using Chikoko as Mineral Filler
Country :: Nigeria
Authors :: Nwaobakata, C || Eme, B.D
Page No. :: 13-20

This paper presents a study on the laboratory evaluation of Asphaltic concrete using the Nigeria Deltaic clay (locally known as Chikoko) as an admixture. The Marshall Mix design procedure was employed in this study and the Optimum Bitumen content (OBC) was determined as 5.20%. The fine aggregate was replaced systematically with chikoko at 2%, 4%, 6%, 8% and 10% respectively, by weight of fine aggregate. The physical properties of the modified HMA were determined using the Marshall Test procedure. From the results obtained, the optimum result of chikoko usage as mineral filler in HMA was noticed at 6% replacement of chikoko by weight of fine aggregate. Therefore, the deltaic clay, chikoko, can be used effectively as mineral filler in HMA up to 6% replacement by weight of fine aggregate.

Title :: Investigation on Sawdust and Palm Kernel Shells as Partial Replacement for fine and Coarse Aggregate in Concrete Production
Country :: Nigeria
Authors :: Nwaobakata, C || Eme, D.B
Page No. :: 21-28

The high and rising cost of construction in developing countries, especially Nigeria has been a major concern to government and private developers. This study investigated the partial replacement of Saw Dust (SD) and Palm Kernel Shell (PKS) for fine and coarse aggregate respectively in concrete production. The materials were dried for some days, crushed, sieved and batched by volume. Using a design mix of 1:2:4, with a water cement ratio of 0.6, the prepared specimens were poured in cube moulds of 150x150x150mm, cured by immersion in water for different time durations (7, 14,21and 28 days). The results showed that workability (slump) reduces as the percentage of SD and PKS increases. It further revealed that the compressive strength reduced with increase in SD and PKS...........

Data Mining is the process of drawing out the useful information from the raw data that is present in various forms. Data Mining is defined as study of the Knowledge Discovery in database process or KDD. Data mining techniques are relevant for drawing out the useful information from the huge amount of raw data that is present in various forms. In this research work different types of classification algorithms accuracies are calculated which are widely used to draw the significant amount of data from the huge amount of raw data. Comparative analysis of different Classification Algorithms have been done using various criteria's like accuracy, execution time (in seconds) and how much instances are correctly classified or not classified correctly.

After defining, triple prime numbers will be presented: Bölcsföldi-Károlyi prime numbers from 23 to 7737733, Bölcsföldi- Rosta prime numbers from 23 to 5533553, Bölcsföldi-Zakar prime numbers from 227 to 22257222577, Birkás-Bölcsföldi prime numbers from 337 to 33575737373 . How many triple prime numbers are there in the interval (10p-1, 10p) (where p is a prime number)? On the one hand, it has been counted by computers. On the other hand, the function (1) gives the approximate number of triple prime numbers in the interval (10p-1,10p). Near-proof reasoning has emerged from the conformity of Mills' prime numbers with triple prime numbers. The sets of triple prime numbers are probably infinite.

Page No. :: 48-52

The evaluation of groundwater quality is a critical element in the assessment of water resources and this analysis becomes even more important when used for determining concentration of toxic anion, like fluoride. In the present investigation, firstly, samples of groundwater were collected from various sites of Barmer (an arid district of western Rajasthan). Fluoride ion concentrations were then determined in these samples using suitable ion electrodes and further the use of quarternary aminised resins from starch as adsorbents was evaluated using Freundlich adsorption isotherm for removal of fluoride.

Page No. :: 53-57

Increase in the application of sensor nodes in wireless sensor network, WSN directly demands that energy density of batteries and its capacity be increased. As a result, the financial implication of batteries (as it regards to cost of the battery and its maintenance) increases geometrically. Energy harvester, an optional solution to the energy constraints of batteries, provides ambient energy which is readily and cheaply available. This paper articulates sources of energy harvesting, principles of harvesting energy and different techniques involved in providing alternate sources of energy for sensors and remote low/ultra-low power devices.

Title :: Design of RF Energy Harvesting System for Low-Power Electronic Devices
Country :: India
Authors :: Prof. Sonal Hutke || Prof. Hema Raut
Page No. :: 58-63

This paper presents the results of a project in RF Energy harvesting for scavenging energy from the ubiquitous radio-frequency (RF) electromagnetic waves. The function of the energy conversion module is to convert the radio frequency (RF) signals into direct-current (DC) voltage at the given frequency band to power the low power devices. Such a device can be very useful to charge mobile phone in jungles and in remote areas or where the electric utility is not available or not reliable. In comparison to other methods of energy harvesting, RF has the smallest energy density and therefore poses big challenges. The bands targeted for harvesting in this project will be those that are the most readily available to the general Indian population............

Title :: IAFCM: Integrated and Adaptive File Consistency Maintenance in Peer-to-Peer Network
Country :: India
Authors :: Bhuvaneswari R || Ravi T N
Page No. :: 64-75

The Peer-to-Peer (P2P) based system suffers from a crucial problem of difficulty in the update transmission, as the peers in the network cannot obtain a comprehensive view of the replica locations. This paper presents an Integrated and Adaptive File Consistency Maintenance (IAFCM) algorithm to achieve high efficiency in the data replication and replica consistency maintenance at a low cost. Each replica server in the network chooses the replication and update sampling by dynamically adjusting to the file query and file update rates. This research work presents a hypothetical update that quickly transmits an update to all replicas in a pure P2P way. Each server determines the directions of replicas with maximum probability based on the local state of the server used for relocating the replica. Then, the update messages are transmitted in that direction. Experimental analysis demonstrates that the hypothetical update mechanism transmits an update to all replicas at a faster rate than the existing P2P-based approaches.
