    Attribute Reduction of Hybrid Decision Information Systems Based on Fuzzy Conditional Information Entropy

    Xiaoqin Ma1,2, Jun Wang1, Wenchang Yu1, Qinli Zhang1,2,*

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.79, No.2, pp. 2063-2083, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2024.049147

    Abstract The presence of numerous uncertainties in hybrid decision information systems (HDISs) renders attribute reduction a formidable task. Currently available attribute reduction algorithms, including those based on Pawlak attribute importance, Skowron discernibility matrix, and information entropy, struggle to effectively manages multiple uncertainties simultaneously in HDISs like the precise measurement of disparities between nominal attribute values, and attributes with fuzzy boundaries and abnormal values. In order to address the aforementioned issues, this paper delves into the study of attribute reduction within HDISs. First of all, a novel metric based on the decision attribute is introduced to solve… More >

    Abstract The centrifugal pump is a prevalent power equipment widely used in different engineering patterns, and the impeller blade wrap angle significantly impacts its performance. A numerical investigation was conducted to analyze the influence of the blade wrap angle on flow characteristics and energy distribution of a centrifugal pump evaluated as a low specific speed with a value of 69. This study investigates six impeller models that possess varying blade wrap angles (95°, 105°, 115°, 125°, 135°, and 145°) that were created while maintaining the same volute and other geometrical characteristics. The investigation of energy loss… More > Graphic Abstract

    DETAILED ANALYSIS OF AN ENDOREVERSIBLE FUEL CELL : MAXIMUM POWER AND OPTIMAL OPERATING TEMPERATURE DETERMINATION

    Alexandre Vaudreya,*, Philippe Baucourb, François Lanzettab, Raynal Glisesb

    Frontiers in Heat and Mass Transfer, Vol.3, No.3, pp. 1-8, 2012, DOI:10.5098/hmt.v3.3.3001

    Abstract Producing electrical work in consuming chemical energy, the fuel cell (FC) is forced by the 2nd law to reject heat to its surrounding. However, as it occurs for any other type of engine, this thermal energy cannot be exchanged in an isothermal way in finite time or through finite areas. As it was already done for various types of systems, including chemical engines, the fuel cell is here studied within the finite time thermodynamics framework. An endoreversible fuel cell is then defined, internally reversible but producing entropy during heat exchanges with its ambiance. Considering usual H2/O2More >

    Maximum Correntropy Criterion-Based UKF for Loosely Coupling INS and UWB in Indoor Localization

    Yan Wang*, You Lu, Yuqing Zhou, Zhijian Zhao

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.139, No.3, pp. 2673-2703, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2023.046743

    Abstract Indoor positioning is a key technology in today’s intelligent environments, and it plays a crucial role in many application areas. This paper proposed an unscented Kalman filter (UKF) based on the maximum correntropy criterion (MCC) instead of the minimum mean square error criterion (MMSE). This innovative approach is applied to the loose coupling of the Inertial Navigation System (INS) and Ultra-Wideband (UWB). By introducing the maximum correntropy criterion, the MCCUKF algorithm dynamically adjusts the covariance matrices of the system noise and the measurement noise, thus enhancing its adaptability to diverse environmental localization requirements. Particularly in… More >

    Afraz Hussain Majeed1, Rashid Mahmood2, Sayed M. Eldin3, Imran Saddique4,5,*, S. Saleem6, Muhammad Jawad7

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.139, No.2, pp. 1505-1519, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2023.030255

    Abstract This study explains the entropy process of natural convective heating in the nanofluid-saturated cavity in a heated fin and magnetic field. The temperature is constant on the Y-shaped fin, insulating the top wall while the remaining walls remain cold. All walls are subject to impermeability and non-slip conditions. The mathematical modeling of the problem is demonstrated by the continuity, momentum, and energy equations incorporating the inclined magnetic field. For elucidating the flow characteristics Finite Element Method (FEM) is implemented using stable FE pair. A hybrid fine mesh is used for discretizing the domain. Velocity and More >

    Xiangqun Li1,*, Jiawen Liang2, Jinyu Zhu2, Shengping Shi2, Fangyu Ding2, Jianpeng Sun2, Bo Liu2

    Energy Engineering, Vol.121, No.1, pp. 203-219, 2024, DOI:10.32604/ee.2023.029295

    Abstract To solve the problems of a few optical fibre line fault samples and the inefficiency of manual communication optical fibre fault diagnosis, this paper proposes a communication optical fibre fault diagnosis model based on variational modal decomposition (VMD), fuzzy entropy (FE) and fuzzy clustering (FC). Firstly, based on the OTDR curve data collected in the field, VMD is used to extract the different modal components (IMF) of the original signal and calculate the fuzzy entropy (FE) values of different components to characterize the subtle differences between them. The fuzzy entropy of each curve is used More >

    Deep Learning-Enhanced Brain Tumor Prediction via Entropy-Coded BPSO in CIELAB Color Space

    Mudassir Khalil1, Muhammad Imran Sharif2,*, Ahmed Naeem3, Muhammad Umar Chaudhry1, Hafiz Tayyab Rauf4,*, Adham E. Ragab5

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.77, No.2, pp. 2031-2047, 2023, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2023.043687

    Abstract Early detection of brain tumors is critical for effective treatment planning. Identifying tumors in their nascent stages can significantly enhance the chances of patient survival. While there are various types of brain tumors, each with unique characteristics and treatment protocols, tumors are often minuscule during their initial stages, making manual diagnosis challenging, time-consuming, and potentially ambiguous. Current techniques predominantly used in hospitals involve manual detection via MRI scans, which can be costly, error-prone, and time-intensive. An automated system for detecting brain tumors could be pivotal in identifying the disease in its earliest phases. This research… More >

    Fusion of Region Extraction and Cross-Entropy SVM Models for Wheat Rust Diseases Classification

    Deepak Kumar1, Vinay Kukreja1, Ayush Dogra1,*, Bhawna Goyal2, Talal Taha Ali3

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.77, No.2, pp. 2097-2121, 2023, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2023.044287

    Abstract Wheat rust diseases are one of the major types of fungal diseases that cause substantial yield quality losses of 15%–20% every year. The wheat rust diseases are identified either through experienced evaluators or computerassisted techniques. The experienced evaluators take time to identify the disease which is highly laborious and too costly. If wheat rust diseases are predicted at the development stages, then fungicides are sprayed earlier which helps to increase wheat yield quality. To solve the experienced evaluator issues, a combined region extraction and cross-entropy support vector machine (CE-SVM) model is proposed for wheat rust More >
