Abstract: This paper introduces a multiple access scheme called CDMA/PRMA with Piggybacked Reservation, which employ High Altitude Platforms (HAPs) as innovative wireless base station with balanced cell coverage, to achieve higher statistical multiplexing efficiency in the mixed CBR / VBR /ABR (constant, variable, and available bit rate) traffic environment. The idea is to use HAP as mobile communication assisted system with almost equal paths to communication nodes, while reducing signal impairment. The adopted scheme exploits reservation access mechanism. The reservation is assigned in a separate slice of the frame (reservation mini frame) while the rest of the frame is allotted to the communication traffic. The second level exploits the piggybacked reservation with multimode video encoder to deal with the dynamic nature of VBR traffic in order to increase the channel access efficiency. The expediency of the adopted schemes is insured through the simulation of an isolated cell environment. The obtained results indicated that, a substantial increase in the number of heterogeneous users is attained within the intended QoS level.

Abstract: Refined plate theory is applied for free vibration analysis of thick plate for better results and greater accuracy. In this paper vibration analysis of thick isotropic plate is carried out and results are compared with the results of ANSYS APDL (14.5). This theory uses sinusoidal function in terms of thickness coordinate and accounts for realistic variation of the transverse shear stress through the thickness and satisfies the shear stress free surface conditions at the top and bottom surfaces of the plate. Simply supported thick isotropic plate is considered for detail numerical study. Navier’s solution technique is used for the analytical solution. The results are obtained for natural bending mode frequencies. ANSYS APDL 14.5 is used to obtain fundamental frequencies in Modal Solution.

Abstract: Wireless sensor network (WSN) applications heavily rely on information being transmitted in a timely manner. In such sensor networks, packet scheduling plays a vital role in reducing end-to-end data transmission delays. Developing packet scheduling algorithms in wireless sensor networks can efficiently enhance delivery of packets through wireless links. Packet scheduling can guarantee quality of service and improve transmission rate in wireless sensor networks. It is the process used to select which packet to be serviced or which to be dropped based on the priority such as real time packet and non-real time packet. This paper deals with various packet scheduling algorithms. Wireless sensor network has a different packet scheduling strategy and each has their own advantage and disadvantage. This paper brings a survey on algorithm which provides priority based scheduling and its application.
