Hardware Design of High Speed Communication System using Circular DRA
S. V. A. V. Prasad and Anshu Thakur

Circular DRAs have been proposed as novel and efficient for designing high speed communication systems. In this paper, a reduced-size dielectric resonator antenna (DRA) based high speed communication system has been proposed to check the latency of the system. The design serves as a new configuration of planar antenna, thus making integration of active devices easier. The antenna shows remarkable performance, having low crosspolarization levels and reasonably well radiation patterns. The antenna design has been simulated using a new analytical framework created in MATLAB giving accurate measurement details. Actual working of the hardware has been tested by interfacing it with PC based Data Acquisition System (DAS).

Effects of Cassava Starch and Natural Rubber as Binders on the Flexural and Water Absorption Properties of Recycled Paper Pulp Based Composites
Oladele Isiaka Oluwole and Okoro Moses Avwerosuoghene

Responsiveness was given to the effects of cassava starch and natural rubber as binders on the flexural strength and the water absorptivity properties of the developed rattan particulate reinforced paper pulp based composites. Paper pulp was produced by chopping waste papers into smaller pieces and soaked in boiled water after which it was stirred thoroughly to form paper pulp. Rattan particulate was produced by hammering, chopping, pounding and milling of rattan canes followed by sieving into a particle size of 437 µ. Varying mass of paper from 300-400 g and particulate rattan in treated and untreated form of 2-8 g were mixed and bonded with natural rubber and cassava starch, respectively for the various samples developed. The mixtures were thoroughly mixed to produce homogenous pastes and poured into 150 x 50 x 30 mm detachable mould and compacted for 5 minutes using a laboratory compaction machine maintained at 20 KN. The developed composites were allowed to cure at room temperature for 27 days after which flexural and water absorptivity tests were carried out on the samples. It was noticed that the composite samples ST4 and S5 containing cassava starch happen to be the best in terms of flexural strength while NR2 gave the best water- repellent outcome.

Development of Functional Parian Body using Feldspar from South Western Part of Nigeria
Toluwalope Ogundare, Olusola Ajayi and Oluwagbenga Fatile

Self glazed bodies also called Parian Bodies are chiefly composed of Feldspar which majorly acts as flux in reducing the melting temperature of the particular ceramic body thereby reducing the stress of double firing a ceramic product. This study is focused on two selected deposits in south western Nigeria for the possible production of a Parian body which are very suitable for making ceramic tiles, dolls and figurines. Six compositions were made from these two deposits using a standard parian body composition of 70% feldspar and fired at four different temperatures 1050oc, 1150oc, 1200oc, and 1250oc respectively. Mechanical property tests like flexural strength, fired shrinkage and water absortion were conducted on the selected fired parian bodies to determine the best deposits and the best composition for making a suitable self glazed ceramic ware in Nigeria.

Data Mining Challenge with Linking Mining
Jyoti, Anil Saini

A key challenge for data mining is handling the issue of mining luxuriously organized datasets, where the articles are connected somehow. Connections among the articles may exhibit certain designs, which can be useful for some data mining errands and are normally difficult to catch with conventional measurable models. As of late there has been a surge of enthusiasm for this zone, energized to a great extent by enthusiasm for web and hypertext mining, yet additionally by enthusiasm for mining informal communities, security and law implementation data, bibliographic citations and epidemiological records.
