    Zhiguang Liu1, Shilin Wang1, Jian Zhao1,*, Jianhong Hao2, Fei Yu3

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.138, No.1, pp. 473-487, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2023.029729

    Abstract A real-time adaptive roles allocation method based on reinforcement learning is proposed to improve human-robot cooperation performance for a curtain wall installation task. This method breaks the traditional idea that the robot is regarded as the follower or only adjusts the leader and the follower in cooperation. In this paper, a self-learning method is proposed which can dynamically adapt and continuously adjust the initiative weight of the robot according to the change of the task. Firstly, the physical human-robot cooperation model, including the role factor is built. Then, a reinforcement learning model that can adjust the role factor in real… More > Graphic Abstract

    Yuling Dou1, Fengqin Yao1, Xiandong Wang1, Liang Qu2, Long Chen3, Zhiwei Xu4, Laihui Ding4, Leon Bevan Bullock1, Guoqiang Zhong1, Shengke Wang1,*

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.138, No.1, pp. 1001-1014, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2023.027764

    Abstract UAV marine monitoring plays an essential role in marine environmental protection because of its flexibility and convenience, low cost and convenient maintenance. In marine environmental monitoring, the similarity between objects such as oil spill and sea surface, Spartina alterniflora and algae is high, and the effect of the general segmentation algorithm is poor, which brings new challenges to the segmentation of UAV marine images. Panoramic segmentation can do object detection and semantic segmentation at the same time, which can well solve the polymorphism problem of objects in UAV ocean images. Currently, there are few studies on UAV marine image recognition… More >

    Development of a High-Temperature Thixotropic Cement Slurry System

    Ping Lv1, Jiufei Liu2, Mengran Xu3,*, Hui Tian3,4, Huajie Liu3, Yuhuan Bu3, Zhuang Cai3, Junfeng Qu5

    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.19, No.11, pp. 2907-2921, 2023, DOI:10.32604/fdmp.2023.029304

    Abstract Cementing carbonate reservoirs is generally a difficult task. The so-called thixotropic cement slurry has gained considerable attention in this regard as it can help to fix some notable problems. More precisely, it can easily fill the leakage layer; moreover, its gelling strength can grow rapidly when pumping stops, thereby increasing the resistance to gas channeling, effectively preventing this undesired phenomenon in many cases. High-temperature thixotropic cement slurry systems, however, are still in an early stage of development and additional research is needed to make them a viable option. In the present study, using a self-developed composite high-temperature thixotropic additive as… More >

    Assessment of Nanoparticle-Enriched Solvents for Oil Recovery Enhancement

    Muayad M. Hasan1,*, Firas K. Al-Zuhairi2, Anfal H. Sadeq1, Rana A. Azeez1

    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.19, No.11, pp. 2827-2835, 2023, DOI:10.32604/fdmp.2023.027746

    Abstract Solvents are generally used to reduce the viscosity of heavy crude oil and ultimately enhance oil recovery. Recently, a new method has been introduced where nanoparticles (NPs) are exploited to induce enhanced oil recovery owing to their ability to improve the mobility ratio, dampen the interfacial tension, and alter rock wettability. This study investigated the integration of nano-alumina (Al2O3) NPs with an n-hexane solvent. In particular, a Brookfield viscometer has been used to measure the crude oil viscosity and it has been found that NPs can effectively lead to a significant decrease in the overall oil viscosity (70 cp using… More >

    Yudong Tian1,2, Gonghui Liu1, Yue Qi1,2,*, Jun Li1,3, Yan Xi1,4, Wei Lian1,3, Xiaojie Bai2, Penglin Liu1, Xiaoguang Geng2

    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.19, No.11, pp. 2837-2845, 2023, DOI:10.32604/fdmp.2023.028805

    Abstract Organic rich dark shale of Q Formation can be found in many areas (e.g., in the North of S Basin). The shale target stratum is easy to hydrate and often undergoes spallation. Therefore, centering the casing in the horizontal section of the irregular borehole is relatively difficult. Similarly, achieving a good cement flushing efficiency under complex borehole conditions is a complex task. Through technologies such as centralizer, efficient preflushing, multi-stage flushing and ductile cement slurry, better performances can be achieved. In this study, it is shown that the cementing rate in the DY2H horizontal section is 97.8%, which is more… More >

    Dynamic Security SFC Branching Path Selection Using Deep Reinforcement Learning

    Shuangxing Deng, Man Li*, Huachun Zhou

    Intelligent Automation & Soft Computing, Vol.37, No.3, pp. 2919-2939, 2023, DOI:10.32604/iasc.2023.039985

    Abstract Security service function chaining (SFC) based on software-defined networking (SDN) and network function virtualization (NFV) technology allows traffic to be forwarded sequentially among different security service functions to achieve a combination of security functions. Security SFC can be deployed according to requirements, but the current SFC is not flexible enough and lacks an effective feedback mechanism. The SFC is not traffic aware and the changes of traffic may cause the previously deployed security SFC to be invalid. How to establish a closed-loop mechanism to enhance the adaptive capability of the security SFC to malicious traffic has become an important issue.… More >

    Zhongguo Tang1, Haijin Zhuo1, Beian Li1, Xiaotao Ma2, Siyu Zhao2, Kai Tong2,*

    Structural Durability & Health Monitoring, Vol.17, No.5, pp. 407-431, 2023, DOI:10.32604/sdhm.2023.026033

    Abstract Corrosion can be very harmful to the service life and several properties of reinforced concrete structures. The metal magnetic memory (MMM) method, as a newly developed spontaneous magnetic flux leakage (SMFL) non-destructive testing (NDT) technique, is considered a potentially viable method for detecting corrosion damage in reinforced concrete members. To this end, in this paper, the indoor electrochemical method was employed to accelerate the corrosion of outsourced concrete specimens with different steel bar diameters, and the normal components BBz and its gradient of the SMFL fields on the specimen surfaces were investigated based on the metal magnetic memory (MMM) method.… More >

    Zhuyou Hu1, Ping Lin2,3, He Guo2,3, Yumei Zhang2,3, Zhihai Xiang1,*

    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.27, No.1, pp. 1-2, 2023, DOI:10.32604/icces.2023.09475

    Abstract In recent years, the vehicle scanning method for bridge inspection has drawn much attention by researchers because of its simple operation and high efficiency [1]. Besides the natural frequency, modal modes and other information of bridges, damage can also be detected in this way [2]. For example, we proposed the passive tap-scan damage detection method [3], which scans the bridge with the tapping force generated by a toothed wheel, mimicking the hunting behavior of woodpeckers. In this talk, we will discuss two critical aspects related to the mechanism of this method. One is the quantitative relationship between the vehicle acceleration… More >

    A Method of Evaluating the Effectiveness of a Hydraulic Oscillator in Horizontal Wells

    Zhen Zhong*, Yadong Li, Yuxuan Zhao, Pengfei Ju

    Sound & Vibration, Vol.57, pp. 15-27, 2023, DOI:10.32604/sv.2023.041954

    Abstract Bent-housing motor is the most widely used directional drilling tool, but it often encounters the problem of high friction when sliding drilling in horizontal wells. In this paper, a mathematical model is proposed to simulate slide drilling with a friction reduction tool of axial vibration. A term called dynamic effective tractoring force (DETF) is defined and used to evaluate friction reduction effectiveness. The factors influencing the DETF are studied, and the tool placement optimization problem is investigated. The study finds that the drilling rate of penetration (ROP) can lower the DETF but does not change the trend of the DETF… More >
