    KAVITA*, R.K. TIWARI

    Journal of Polymer Materials, Vol.36, No.2, pp. 195-205, 2019, DOI:10.32381/JPM.2019.36.02.7

    Abstract The effect of poly (vinyl butyral) and acid functionalized multiwalled carbon nanotubes (f-MWCNT) on the thermal and mechanical performance of Kevlar fiber reinforced novolac epoxy nanocomposites was investigated and presented in this paper. Nanocomposite containing 1.5 wt. % poly (vinyl butyral) and 0.5 wt. % f-MWCNT exhibited best thermal and mechanical properties (except flexural strength) among all the nanocomposites reported here. It showed ~5%, 27% and 126 % improvement in tensile strength, young’s modulus and impact strength respectively as compared to the neat novolac epoxy Kevlar composite.Nanocomposite containing 0.5 wt. % f- MWCNT and 2 More >

    Influence of Bottom Inclination on the Flow Structure in a Rotating Convective Layer

    Andrei Vasiliev, Andrei Sukhanovskii*, Elena Popova

    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.20, No.4, pp. 739-748, 2024, DOI:10.32604/fdmp.2024.048092

    Abstract The formation of convective flows in a rotating cylindrical layer with an inclined bottom and free surface is studied. Convection is driven by localized cooling at the center of the upper free surface and by rim heating at the bottom near the sidewall. The horizontal temperature difference in a rotating layer leads to the formation of a convective flow with a complex structure. The mean meridional circulation, consisting of three cells, provides a strongly non-uniform differential rotation. As a result of the instability of the main cyclonic zonal flow, the train of baroclinic waves appears… More >

    Hydrodynamic Cavitation Enhanced SR-Aops Degradation of Organic Pollutants in Water: A Review

    Xiufeng Zhu1,2, Jingying Wang1,*

    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.20, No.4, pp. 671-692, 2024, DOI:10.32604/fdmp.2023.045260

    Abstract

    SR-AOP (sulfate radical advanced oxidation process) is a novel water treatment method able to eliminate refractory organic pollutants. Hydrodynamic cavitation (HC) is a novel green technology, that can effectively produce strong oxidizing sulfate radicals. This paper presents a comprehensive review of the research advancements in these fields and a critical discussion of the principal factors influencing HC-enhanced SR-AOP and the mechanisms of synergistic degradation. Furthermore, some insights into the industrial application of HC/PS are also provided. Current research shows that this technology is feasible at the laboratory stage, but its application on larger scales requires

    Influence of Flap Parameters on the Aerodynamic Performance of a Wind-Turbine Airfoil

    Yuanjun Dai1,2, Jingan Cui1, Baohua Li1,*, Cong Wang1, Kunju Shi1

    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.20, No.4, pp. 771-786, 2024, DOI:10.32604/fdmp.2023.029584

    Abstract A numerical method has been used to analyze the flow field related to a NACA 0015 airfoil with and without a flap and assess the influence of the flap height and angle on the surface pressure coefficient, lift coefficient, and drag coefficient. The numerical results demonstrate that the flap can effectively improve the lift coefficient of the airfoil; however, at small attack angles, its influence is significantly reduced. When the angle of attack exceeds the critical stall angle and the flap height is 1.5% of the chord length, the influence of the flap becomes very More >

    The Influence of Air Pollution Concentrations on Solar Irradiance Forecasting Using CNN-LSTM-mRMR Feature Extraction

    Ramiz Gorkem Birdal*

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.78, No.3, pp. 4015-4028, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2024.048324

    Abstract Maintaining a steady power supply requires accurate forecasting of solar irradiance, since clean energy resources do not provide steady power. The existing forecasting studies have examined the limited effects of weather conditions on solar radiation such as temperature and precipitation utilizing convolutional neural network (CNN), but no comprehensive study has been conducted on concentrations of air pollutants along with weather conditions. This paper proposes a hybrid approach based on deep learning, expanding the feature set by adding new air pollution concentrations, and ranking these features to select and reduce their size to improve efficiency.

    Influence of Various Earth-Retaining Walls on the Dynamic Response Comparison Based on 3D Modeling

    Muhammad Akbar1, Huali Pan1,*, Jiangcheng Huang2, Bilal Ahmed3, Guoqiang Ou1

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.139, No.3, pp. 2835-2863, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2024.046993

    Abstract The present work aims to assess earthquake-induced earth-retaining (ER) wall displacement. This study is on the dynamics analysis of various earth-retaining wall designs in hollow precast concrete panels, reinforcement concrete facing panels, and gravity-type earth-retaining walls. The finite element (FE) simulations utilized a 3D plane strain condition to model full-scale ER walls and numerous nonlinear dynamics analyses. The seismic performance of different models, which includes reinforcement concrete panels and gravity-type and hollow precast concrete ER walls, was simulated and examined using the FE approach. It also displays comparative studies such as stress distribution, deflection of… More >

    Abstract Silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) synthesized using tartaric acid as a capping agent have a great impact on the reaction kinetics and contribute significantly to the stability of AgNPs. The protective layer formed by tartaric acid is an important factor that protects the silver surface and reduces potential cytotoxicity problems. These attributes are critical for assessing the compatibility of AgNPs with biological systems and making them suitable for drug delivery applications. The aim of this research is to conduct a comprehensive study of the effect of tartaric acid concentration, sonication time and temperature on the formation of… More > Graphic Abstract

    Abstract Glycogen metabolism plays a key role in the development of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), but the function of glycogen metabolism genes in the tumor microenvironment (TME) is still to be elucidated. Single-cell RNA-seq data were obtained from ten HCC tumor samples totaling 64,545 cells, and 65 glycogen metabolism genes were analyzed by a nonnegative matrix factorization (NMF). The prognosis and immune response of new glycogen TME cell clusters were predicted by using HCC and immunotherapy cohorts from public databases. HCC single-cell analysis was divided into fibroblasts, NT T cells, macrophages, endothelial cells, and B cells, which… More >

    Assessment of the Influence of Tunnel Settlement on Operational Performance of Subway Vehicles

    Gang Niu1,2, Guangwei Zhang1, Zhaoyang Jin1, Wei Zhang3,*, Xiang Liu3

    Structural Durability & Health Monitoring, Vol.18, No.1, pp. 55-71, 2024, DOI:10.32604/sdhm.2023.044832

    Abstract In the realm of subway shield tunnel operations, the impact of tunnel settlement on the operational performance of subway vehicles is a crucial concern. This study introduces an advanced analytical model to investigate rail geometric deformations caused by settlement within a vehicle-track-tunnel coupled system. The model integrates the geometric deformations of the track, attributed to settlement, as track irregularities. A novel “cyclic model” algorithm was employed to enhance computational efficiency without compromising on precision, a claim that was rigorously validated. The model’s capability extends to analyzing the time-history responses of vehicles traversing settlement-affected areas. The More >
