Three different species of bacteria namely P. Fluorescence, B. Pumilis and B. Subliis that have calcite precipitation properties have been investigated in this study. The investigations were carried first on cement mortar (CM) cubes using these three bacteria species suspension of 20%; 40% and 60% having colony forming units<em> P. Fluorescence</em> (10<sup>8</sup> CFU/ml), <em>B. Pumilis</em> (10<sup>6</sup> CFU/ml) and <em>B. Subtilis</em> (10<sup>8</sup> CFU/ml) respectively. The 40% suspension in all the three cases has shown increased compressive strength as compared to 20% and 60%. The compressive strength measured showed increase (CS) of 18%; 12% for <em>P. Fluorescence</em>; <em>B. Subtilis</em> and decrease of 35% with <em>B. Pumilis</em> respectively. <em>B. Subtilis</em> with optimized 40% suspension having CFU 10x10<sup>8</sup>/ml showed 4.32% ; 5.56%; and 3.81% increase in CS of CC cubes with 3 days; 7 days and 28 days respectively and 5.92% overall increase in CS of CC cubes as compared to the 3 days CS of control cube. <br /><strong>ABBREVIATIONS</strong><br />SDW: Sterile Distilled Water; SHC: Self-Healing Concrete; PCR: Polymerase Chain Reaction; BC: Bacterial Concrete; CP: Calcite precipitation; CS: Compressive Strength; CC: Cement Concrete; CM: Cement Mortar; MTCC: Microbial Type Culture Collection; CFU: Colony Forming Unit/ml</p> Pooja Bandekar Sandhay Basavaraj Prakash Mallappa Munnoli Jyoti Gupta Geeta Shetteppanavar Sudisha Jogayya Copyright (c) 2020 Prakash Mallappa Munnoli et al. 2021-07-03 2021-07-03 8 2 59 63 10.15415/jotitt.2020.82008 Antenna Design and Fabrication with Circular Microstrip Patch: A Review <p>The paper presents a review on antenna designing and fabrication techniques with Microstrip Patch (MSP) development. The requirements of MSP are remote controlling, mobile communication, space communication and all wireless communication areas. Aim of this development is to provide a new approach of the designing and simulation of circular<br />MSP for 5.8 GHz operating frequency. CST MICROWAVE STUDIO (MWS) facilitates the quick and accurate analysis of high frequency (HF) antennas which gives the responses and results before fabrication of actual patch with complete technology for 3D EM. FR-4 glass epoxy material board is used for fabrication which is admired and adaptable highpressure thermoset plastic laminate grade with superior strength to weight ratios. Circular MSP is easy to fabricate, portable, lightweight and low cost antenna. N9923A Field Fox RF VNA (Vector Network Analyser) were used for studying and testing all the parameters of fabricated MSP.</p> M. S. Kasbe T. H. Mujawar B. Gabane R.V. Shinde Copyright (c) 2021 R.V.

The significant challenges like lack of ICT infrastructure and digital competence of teachers, played an important role in the acceptance of new modes of teaching. Creating and delivering the educational content by using digital tools still remains a daunting task for many teachers. At the same time parents are overwhelmed with the burden to teach children at home and help them with online learning and bearing extra expenses of digital devices and internet services. Students, on the other hand, are struggling continually to adapt to a new learning environment that offers some flexibility along with some challenges. This study aims to present the challenges faced in instant migration of offline to online mode of teaching-learning by the stakeholders.</p> Malik Mubasher Hassan Tabasum Mirza Copyright (c) 2021 Tabasum Mirza and Malik Mubasher Hassan 2021-07-03 2021-07-03 8 2 73 84 10.15415/jotitt.2020.82010 An Investigation on the Influence of Modeling Approach and Load Pattern on Seismic Performance of RC Structures <p>Non-linear Static Analysis serves as a suitable measure to evaluate the performance of a structural system. The careful selection of modelling approach and the load pattern is critical to arrive at an adequate performance evaluation. The present study seeks to evaluate and compare the response of an existing eight story reinforced concrete structure, through the application of different modeling approaches and load patterns prescribed by FEMA 356. The results indicates that, with extreme clarity, that in all cases, the shape of the lateral load distribution is what the response of the buildings is finely accustomed to. This is especially true when different patterns of load are considered. It can also be observed that there is a very small difference between various load patterns.</p> C. M. Ravikumar L. K.
