    Wei Xiong1,2, Dagang Li1,*, Peixing Wei2, Lin Wang2, Qian Feng1

    Journal of Renewable Materials, Vol.11, No.5, pp. 2265-2278, 2023, DOI:10.32604/jrm.2023.025483

    Abstract Poplar wood, which was used as the absorption material for the solar-driven interfacial evaporation, was treated for 3 days, 6 days and 9 days with the pectinase, and then was simulated for photothermal evaporation test at one standard solar radiation intensity (1 kW⋅m−2). The effects of pectinase treatment on cell passage and water migration capacity of poplars were analyzed by the mercury intrusion porosimetry, the scanning electron microscope and fractal theory. It was found that the pit membrane and the ray parenchyma cells of poplar wood were degraded and destroyed after pectinase treatment. Compared with the untreated More >

    Optimization of Interactive Videos Empowered the Experience of Learning Management System

    Muhammad Akram1, Muhammad Waseem Iqbal2,*, M. Usman Ashraf3, Erssa Arif1, Khalid Alsubhi4, Hani Moaiteq Aljahdali5

    Computer Systems Science and Engineering, Vol.46, No.1, pp. 1021-1038, 2023, DOI:10.32604/csse.2023.034085

    Abstract The Learning management system (LMS) is now being used for uploading educational content in both distance and blended setups. LMS platform has two types of users: the educators who upload the content, and the students who have to access the content. The students, usually rely on text notes or books and video tutorials while their exams are conducted with formal methods. Formal assessments and examination criteria are ineffective with restricted learning space which makes the student tend only to read the educational contents and videos instead of interactive mode. The aim is to design an… More >

    Usability-Driven Mobile Application Development

    Fadwa Yahya1,2,*, Lassaad Ben Ammar1,2, Gasmi Karim3

    Computer Systems Science and Engineering, Vol.45, No.3, pp. 3165-3180, 2023, DOI:10.32604/csse.2023.030358

    Abstract Recently, a specific interest is being taken in the development of mobile application (app) via Model-Based User Interface Development (MBUID) approach. MBUID allows the generation of mobile apps in the target platform(s) from conceptual models. As such it simplified the development process of mobile app. However, the interest is only focused on the functional aspects of the mobile app while neglecting the non-functional aspects, such as usability. The latter is largely considered as the main factor leading to the success or failure of any software system. This paper aims at addressing non-functional aspects of mobile More >

    Molecular Dynamics Simulation of Interface Properties between Water-Based Inorganic Zinc Silicate Coating Modified by Organosilicone and Iron Substrate

    Hengjiao Gao1, Yuqing Xiong1,*, Kaifeng Zhang1, Shengzhu Cao1, Mingtai Hu1, Yi Li1, Ping Zhang2, Xiaoli Liu3

    Journal of Renewable Materials, Vol.11, No.4, pp. 1715-1729, 2023, DOI:10.32604/jrm.2022.024023

    Abstract The interface properties of Fe(101)/zinc silicate modified by organo-siloxane (KH-570) was studied by using the method of molecular dynamics simulation. By calculating the temperature and energy fluctuation of equilibrium state, equilibrium concentration distribution, MSD of layer and different groups, and interaction energy of two interface models, the influencing mechanism on the interface properties of adding organosiloxane into coating system was studied at the atomic scale. It shows that the temperature and energy of interface oscillated in a small range and it was exited in a state of dynamic equilibrium within the initial simulation stage (t More > Graphic Abstract

    Oncologie, Vol.24, No.3, pp. 371-411, 2022, DOI:10.32604/oncologie.2022.024035

    Abstract Cancer is one of the deadliest diseases with a cure far from being found. Despite the extraordinary advances in the therapy approaches, only a few patients respond to treatments. The tumor microenvironment (TME) plays a crucial role in cancer progression by contributing to the chemoresistance. Thus, emerging efforts are being made in nanotechnology research focusing on nanoparticles’ potential role and their application in immune system modulation. Moreover, the omics have contributed to bioengineering and nanotechnology development by elucidating the mechanisms of cancer and specific biomarkers that could be used as new therapeutic targets.

    User Interface-Based Repeated Sequence Detection Method for Authentication

    Shin Jin Kang1, Soo Kyun Kim2,*

    Intelligent Automation & Soft Computing, Vol.35, No.3, pp. 2573-2588, 2023, DOI:10.32604/iasc.2023.029893

    Abstract In this paper, we propose an authentication method that use mouse and keystroke dynamics to enhance online privacy and security. The proposed method identifies personalized repeated user interface (UI) sequences by analyzing mouse and keyboard data. To this end, an Apriori algorithm based on the keystroke-level model (KLM) of the human–computer interface domain was used. The proposed system can detect repeated UI sequences based on KLM for authentication in the software. The effectiveness of the proposed method is verified through access testing using commercial applications that require intensive UI interactions. The results show using our More >
