    Xin Shen1, Jiahao Li1, Yujun Yin1, Jianlin Tang2,3,*, Weibin Lin2,3, Mi Zhou2,3

    Energy Engineering, Vol.121, No.7, pp. 1945-1961, 2024, DOI:10.32604/ee.2024.048388

    Abstract Advanced carbon emission factors of a power grid can provide users with effective carbon reduction advice, which is of immense importance in mobilizing the entire society to reduce carbon emissions. The method of calculating node carbon emission factors based on the carbon emissions flow theory requires real-time parameters of a power grid. Therefore, it cannot provide carbon factor information beforehand. To address this issue, a prediction model based on the graph attention network is proposed. The model uses a graph structure that is suitable for the topology of the power grid and designs a supervised More >

    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.20, No.5, pp. 1123-1146, 2024, DOI:10.32604/fdmp.2023.043272

    Abstract This study focuses on a DN50 pipeline-type Savonius hydraulic turbine. The torque variation of the turbine in a rotation cycle is analyzed theoretically in the framework of the plane potential flow theory. Related numerical simulations show that the change in turbine torque is consistent with the theoretical analysis, with the main power zone and the secondary power zone exhibiting a positive torque. In contrast, the primary resistance zone and the secondary resistance zone are characterized by a negative torque. Analytical relationships between the turbine’s internal flow angle θ, the deflector’s inclination angle α, and the… More >

    Hailin Pang1, Ningqiang Ma1, Mi Jiao, Weiwei Shen, Bo Xin, Tongfei Wang, Feng Zhang, Lili Liu, Helong Zhang

    Oncology Research, Vol.25, No.1, pp. 35-42, 2017, DOI:10.3727/096504016X14719078133249

    Abstract The bone is among the most common sites of metastasis in patients with lung cancer. Over 30%–40% of lung cancers can develop bone metastasis, and no effective therapeutic methods exist in clinic cases. Wnt/β-catenin signaling and Dickkopf1 (DKK1) play important roles in the progression of lung cancer, which preferentially metastasizes to the skeleton. However, the role of DKK1 in osteotropism of small cell lung cancer (SCLC) remains to be elucidated. This study aimed to define the role of DKK1 in SCLC bone metastasis and investigate the underlying mechanisms. Our results demonstrated that the expression level… More >
