EDITORIAL BOARD MESSAGE

Dear Readers,

It gives us a great opportunity to present the 18th issue of Kathan, the measure
of developments and progress. The last quarter was full of various activities by
students and faculties in academics, co-curricular, extra-curricular as well as
research and developments.

Most significant developments include the GTU results where our college has
successfully emerged on the top of around 102 colleges. This has been really a
path breaking milestone in entire SRICT history. Our students have set such
idealistic bench marks over and over again proving their persistence effects and
excellence.

A magazine is like a mirror which reflects the clear picture of all sorts of
activities undertaken by the institution and develops the writing skills among
students in particular and teaching faculty in general. The key is simply to
provide information that is likely of interest to a reasonable segment of the
readers community. It is willingness to make the efforts to share the
knowledge, concerns and special insight with all at large that has made this
issue possible.

This issue is at glance reflects of what has been achieved and re-discovered by
us, all together as a team. We are now recognized as the sign of emerging
excellence and research hub among industries and societies.

Please also keep in mind that we seek articles which have no peer review
because the intent is to share the information, view and insight rather than a
research results. Its an opportunity to assemble together and organize ideas
that are of worth sharing with each other at large. It is of worth our last issues
have been highly appreciated and thriving for their rich contents.

Thanks to all readers and enjoy reading to explore the unknown info.!!!

Our special thanks to Mr.P Balagopal for sharing his view with best of his
knowledge.

MESSAGE
The day is of Technology. In todays nomenclature Technology is akin to I.T. It has brought
about a revolution in Industry in addition to all walks of life, making a difference in how we
conduct business today.

Engineering is nothing but application of the fundamental principles of science. When one
finds applications where the basic principles of science can be applied then you have it
engineered for use by mankind to make his life easy to manage, move away from dependencies,
bring about efficiency, improve accuracy, reduce time to achieve results, add safety to state a
few.

The above attributes necessarily builds the need in the society, to crave for new technology,
generates the necessity for technology, more and more of it to help them improve their way of
life. It is this aspect that necessitates growth and innovation in technology.

Thus all of the above aspects give the required energy, and momentum, for technology
upgrades, including development, aligned to meet the needs of the society, in order to make it a
better place to live. Computer engineering is an example that exemplifies this fact. This science
is always moving towards replacing manual jobs, otherwise carried out/conducted by
mankind, using machines, which brings about flexibility, speed and accuracy in the jobs, when
computers are employed.

Chemical technology that replaces natural resources to meet the need of industry, creating
technology for special materials to comply the different industry needs, indeed has been a real
boost to the development of technology. Examples are the special materials for space craft,
plastics that is and has changed the world, evolution of new molecules that is helping
manufacture of medicines in the treatment of the disorders, with added efficacy and safety.

Another industry that had transformed is in transportation, which includes automobiles,


wherein improved technology has brought in features that add, comfort, safety, fuel efficiency,
reduced pollution, and enhanced life style.

In their stride to implement new technologies there have been hurdles typical to technology
implementation, which on identification has to be dealt with which also brings along with
technology challenges. Hence current technology is working towards developing new methods
in those areas such as pollution controls, use of natural energy for use for various applications,
reduce generation of harmful polluting processes and materials.

There is wide spread development in the areas of Instrumentation and controls, which helps
accurate measurement, control, and improve efficiency. This applies to metallurgy another field
of engineering that is changing the face of things to come.

By this it is evident that innovation is the way of life, change the way we do things for effective
improvement, think always for betterment. Apply the fundamentals of science to create a
different world we live.

We realized that to enhance our


employability prospects English continues
to be in demand all over the world as an
international language of trade and
industry. There is an escalating upsurge for
people who can communicate effectively in
English in a variety of contexts. It helps one
to employ a wide range of vocabulary
including less common Lexis with fluency,
precision and sophistication. The English
Proficiency Course prepares students for
this kind of communication.

Steam reforming of hydrocarbons has
been the preferred method for many
decades for industrial scale hydrogen
production. Reforming process mainly
involves splitting of hydrocarbons in the
presence of water and watergas shift
reaction as given below:
CnH2n+2+nH2OnCO+(2n+1) H2 (1)
CO+H2OCO2+H2; H=-41 kJ/mole (2)
The first step is highly endothermic, taking
more heat than it evolves from watergas
shift reaction. Therefore, overall steam
reforming is an endothermic process.

3.1. FACTORS AFFECTING THE


STEAM REFORMING PROCESS

Fig. 1: Uses of Crude Glycerol [2] The factors affecting the production of
hydrogen from steam reforming process are
Temperature, Pressure, Water to Glycerol
Feed Ratio (WGFR), Feed reactants to inert
gas ratio and Feed gas rate.
It has been observed that these factors hold
a key role in order to have a high hydrogen
yield and a good glycerol conversion.
Thermodynamically, steam reforming
process favours high temperatures and low
pressures. As per various researches [3], it
has been found that for optimum results
the process of glycerol steam reforming
requires a high temperature (800K-1000K),

Plastic materials are widely used in


different sectors for their good mechanical
properties, low density, low cost, and also
ease of processing. Due to these properties,
they are replacing many materials like
metal, wood, glass etc. The total production
of plastics is more than 230 million tons
per year which, according to a paper

3. The application of bio hydrometallurgy in
extracting vanadium from stone coal. Bio
hydrometallurgy is a promising technology
which is mainly used to recover certain
metals, such as copper, gold, lead, nickel
and zinc, from sulfide ores at present Bio
hydrometallurgy lends itself economically
and technically to the processing of low-
grade and complex ores, and in some cases,
it may be more environmentally friendly
than other traditional technologies. The
success in cultivation and naturalization for
vanadium resistant bacteria makes bio
hydrometallurgy a promising technology for
vanadium extraction from stone coal, but
there are technical challenges that need to
be addressed.
4. The comprehensive utilization of tailings
of vanadium extraction from stone coal. It
is estimated that about 120,000150,000
tons tailings are generated for each 1000
tons V2O5 extracted from stone coal. The
vast amounts of tailings not only occupy
land but potentially
Pollute the environment. The essential
chemical properties of the tailings with
relatively high content of Al and active Si
compounds make it appropriate to act as
the raw material for production of new
building materials, such as geopolymer or
aerated concrete. It can potentially obtain
extra economic benefits by utilizing tailings
of stone coal.

My heart peevish for some time,

No one can ignore to discuss,
That how was his college life,

so long is our college life,
The first step was to admit at college,

The second was to retired from college life
Then to sat in class first year,

We take start for college life,

But after very little period of time,


First year were ignored from college life,
Then on promoting of next class,
I felt the beauty of college life,
But the time has to go on and so on!

But do these guarantee happiness and
peace that is eternal? Is this all that is
there to life? What is the purpose of our
existence? Most of us remain unaware
about the ultimate goal of the human life.

Within each of us is a natural urge to


struggle for a better state of life than the
present one. With regular practice of
introspection we sense incompleteness in
the current state of life. This makes us
crave unalloyed happiness, uninterrupted
peace, and immorality. This is the inner
quest and ultimate goal of every human
heart. We are all trying hard to attain it in
our own way, irrespective of whether we are
aware of our efforts in this direction and
whether or not we succeed in our efforts
during our life time.

We therefore work towards gaining a sense


of completeness that we find missing in our
lives. Generally we want to achieve
something that we think is within our
reach, expect for some courageous men and
women who like to make a sort of pole-vault

individuals capacity. They are able to reject
the alluring and prolific material goals, and
