Central Library, Dr. B. R. Ambedkar National Institute of Technology was established in 1988 (the same year this institute was established). Since then, this center of learning has been functioning with the aim of encouraging self-learning and to supplement academics, boosting research and development activities, and promoting consultancy activities. At present central library is housed in a multistoried building situated in the midst of all departments and hostels and is easily accessible to all. For the smooth functioning of the library, it has been divided into different sections and readers have been allowed open access to the library holdings.

Valorization of bottom ash in concrete: serviceability, microstructural and sustainability characterization

Ankur, N and Singh, N

The present study investigated the synergistic influence of bottom ash as a Portland cement (PC) and natural fine aggregate (NFA) replacement in concrete. Coal bottom ash (CBA) is a heavy ash that settles at bottom of combustion chamber of a thermal power plant and was grinded (GCBA) for two hours prior to replacing 10-30% PC whereas CBA was used in raw form to replace 25% and 50% NFA. The mech

Offline learning-based competitive swarm optimizer for non-linear fixed-charge transportation problems

Chauhan, D and Shivani

The fixed -charge transportation (FCT) problem, an extension of the classical transportation problem, holds significance in practical logistics scenarios where fixed charges play a crucial role. Fixed charges categorize it as an NP -hard problem, posing challenges for conventional methods due to their inefficiency, high computational costs, and susceptibility to local optima. This paper introdu

Assessing the impact of recycled mortar powder on the strength, durability and microstructural characteristics of geopolymer concrete

Singh, P and Kapoor, K

The recycling of concrete waste and its utilization in new concrete production can be a great contribution to a sustainable environment. In the present study, the impact of recycled mortar powder (RMP) was accessed on fly ash (FA) based geopolymer concrete (GC). The RMP was substituted with FA in the range of 0-50%. The durability properties such as capillary suction test (CST), initial surface

A review on polysaccharide based aerogel synthesis and their applications

Rai, N and Chauhan, I

Aerogels are highly porous solid materials with density even less than air. Various materials such as cellulose, chitosan, titanium oxide, chitin, pectin, silica oxide, starch, carrageenan, and mucilage have been used till date to synthesize the aerogels. However, these aerogels can be brittle, toxic, non-biodegradable, and can add environmental load on degradation. Since last few decades, poly

FSS inspired two port CP MIMO antenna with enhanced gain for X-band applications

Singh, AKumar, A and Kanaujia, BK

In this work, a dual-port circularly polarized (CP) Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) antenna equipped with frequency selective surface (FSS) for X-band applications is designed and analyzed. The antenna system aims to enhance gain, a critical parameter like isolation radiation pattern, etc. In wireless communication systems working in the X-band frequency range. The present MIMO antenna co

Experimental study and Large Eddy Simulation of slot jet impingement cooling from heated cylinder placed on flat plate

Ganatra, KASingh, D and Mukhopadhyay, A

The present study focuses on the experimental investigation and numerical study using Large Eddy Simulation (LES) for an air-impinging jet. The investigation is carried out for slot jet impingement on the heated cylinder with an adiabatic flat plate beneath the heated cylinder. The parametric investigation is conducted for parameters such as Reynolds number (Re), jet-to-cylinder spacing (h/S),

β-Cyclodextrin modified chitosan and κ-carrageenan composites for acid fuchsin dye removal: mechanism insight and adsorption performance

Vaid, VKhushbu; (...); Jindal, R

This study is aimed at developing a highly effective adsorbent by physically crosslinking chitosan (CH), kappa-carrageenan (KCG), and beta-cyclodextrin (beta-CD) for removing acid fuchsin (AF) dye from water. Various analytical techniques, such as PXRD, FTIR, FE-SEM, and EDS, were utilized to analyze the interactions and morphology of the crosslinked biosorbents. The adsorption performance of C
