This paper presents a Genetic Algorithm (GA) approach for solving constrained reliability optimization problem of the five unit bridge network. Considering uncertainty for cost, the reliability optimization problem has been solved by GA technique to maximize system reliability. GA is an efficient method for solving this type of optimization problems. This(More)
Bionanocomposites of chitosan were prepared with nanohydroxyapatite (nHA) using 2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate (HEMA) as coupling agent. The tensile and flexural properties for 8% nHA loading showed optimal values. Compressive modulus also considerably increased from 525.16 MPa (0% nHA) to 1326.5 MPa with 10% nHA. Surface functionalization of fillers along(More)
In this study high performance bone analogue has been developed using poly(aryl ether) ketone, poly(dimethyl siloxane) and reinforced with nanohydroxyapatite as biocompatible filler. Compressive, tensile and flexural properties have shown sustained improvement up to 7% of nanohydroxyapatite loading. The mechanical properties were further analyzed using(More)
In this paper, we have modified the Jelinski-Moranda (J-M) model of software reliability using imperfect debugging process in fault removal activity. The J-M model was developed assuming the debugging process to be perfect which implies that there is one-to-one correspondence between the number of failures observed and faults removed. But in reality, it is(More)
Chitosan/carboxy methyl chitosan (CMC) grafted sodium acrylate-co-acrylamide/nanoclay superabsorbent nanocomposites have been synthesized in this study by following conventional and microwave assisted grafting methods. Microwave assisted grafting method showed higher grafting yield with enhanced reaction rate. Effect of nanoclay on water adsorption and(More)
