    Impact Damage Testing Study of Shanxi-Beijing Natural Gas Pipeline Based on Decision Tree Rotary Tiller Operation

    Liqiong Chen1, Kai Zhang1,*, Song Yang1, Duo Xu1, Weihe Huang1, Hongxuan Hu2, Haonan Liu2

    Structural Durability & Health Monitoring, Vol.18, No.5, pp. 683-706, 2024, DOI:10.32604/sdhm.2024.049536

    Abstract The North China Plain and the agricultural region are crossed by the Shanxi-Beijing natural gas pipeline. Residents in the area use rototillers for planting and harvesting; however, the depth of the rototillers into the ground is greater than the depth of the pipeline, posing a significant threat to the safe operation of the pipeline. Therefore, it is of great significance to study the dynamic response of rotary tillers impacting pipelines to ensure the safe operation of pipelines. This article focuses on the Shanxi-Beijing natural gas pipeline, utilizing finite element simulation software to establish a finite More >

    Market Operation of Energy Storage System in Smart Grid: A Review

    Li Deng1, Jiafei Huan1, Wei Wang1, Weitao Zhang1, Liangbin Xie2, Lun Dong2, Jingrong Guo2, Zhongping Li2, Yuan Huang2,*, Yue Xiang2

    Energy Engineering, Vol.121, No.6, pp. 1403-1437, 2024, DOI:10.32604/ee.2024.046393

    Abstract As a flexible resource, energy storage plays an increasingly significant role in stabilizing and supporting the power system, while providing auxiliary services. Still, the current high demand for energy storage contrasts with the fuzzy lack of market-oriented mechanisms for energy storage, the principle of market-oriented operation has not been embodied, and there is no unified and systematic analytical framework for the business model. However, the dispatch management model of energy storage in actual power system operation is not clear. Still, the specific scheduling process and energy storage strategy on the source-load-network side could be more… More >

    A Planning Method for Operational Test of UAV Swarm Based on Mission Reliability

    Jingyu Wang1, Ping Jiang1,*, Jianjun Qi2

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.140, No.2, pp. 1889-1918, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2024.049813

    Abstract The unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) swarm plays an increasingly important role in the modern battlefield, and the UAV swarm operational test is a vital means to validate the combat effectiveness of the UAV swarm. Due to the high cost and long duration of operational tests, it is essential to plan the test in advance. To solve the problem of planning UAV swarm operational test, this study considers the multi-stage feature of a UAV swarm mission, composed of launch, flight and combat stages, and proposes a method to find test plans that can maximize mission reliability.… More >

    Lineament Mapping in Batie Area (West-Cameroon) Using Landsat-9 Operational Land Imager/Thermal Infrared Sensor and Shuttle Radar Topography Mission Data: Hydrogeological Implication

    Jean Aime Mono1,2,*, Apollinaire Bouba3, Jean Daniel Ngoh4, Olivier Ulrich Igor Owono Amougou5, Françoise Martine Enyegue A Nyam6, Théophile Ndougsa Mbarga7

    Revue Internationale de Géomatique, Vol.33, pp. 135-154, 2024, DOI:10.32604/rig.2024.049966

    Abstract This study focuses on the mapping of lineaments using remote sensing techniques and Geographic Information Systems. The aim is to carry out a statistical analysis of the lineaments in order to better understand the organization of fracturing in the Batie district, and to identify areas of high fracturing density and their relationship with the hydrographic network. The methodology implemented to achieve these objectives is based on the processing and analysis of Landsat 9 Operational Land Imager/Thermal Infrared Sensor (OLI/TIRS) satellite imagery and Shuttle Radar Topography Mission (SRTM) data covering the study area. After essential pre-processing… More >

    Stubborn Hypoxia in Neonates with D-Transposition of the Great Arteries after Arterial Switch Operation: Central Sleep Apnea as the Cause and Potential Indicator of Brain Immaturity

    Camden L. Hebson1,*, Kyle Bliton2, Amr Y. Hammouda1, Kaitlyn Barr3, W. Hampton Gray4, Mohini Gunnett2, Waldemar F. Carlo1

    Congenital Heart Disease, Vol.19, No.2, pp. 185-195, 2024, DOI:10.32604/chd.2024.048871

    Abstract D-transposition of the great arteries (d-TGA) is surgically repaired with the arterial switch operation (ASO) with excellent results, however short and long-term morbidities still develop including neurocognitive delay. Clinically significant central sleep apnea is uncommon in non-premature infants, but when present indicates immature autonomic control of respiration likely due to a neurologic disorder. We report the unanticipated finding of central sleep apnea in four-term neonates with d-TGA after uncomplicated ASO, with the short-term complication of delayed hospital discharge and long-term concerns regarding this early marker of brain immaturity and its hindrance to normal development.

    Maria Gul1, Imran Ali Khan1, Gohar Zaman2, Atta Rahman3,*, Jamaluddin Mir2, Sardar Asad Ali Biabani4,5, May Issa Aldossary6, Mustafa Youldash7, Ashraf Saadeldeen8, Maqsood Mahmud9, Asiya Abdus Salam6, Dania Alkhulaifi3, Abdullah AlTurkey3

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.79, No.1, pp. 1631-1657, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2024.048289

    Abstract Obstacle removal in crowd evacuation is critical to safety and the evacuation system efficiency. Recently, many researchers proposed game theoretic models to avoid and remove obstacles for crowd evacuation. Game theoretical models aim to study and analyze the strategic behaviors of individuals within a crowd and their interactions during the evacuation. Game theoretical models have some limitations in the context of crowd evacuation. These models consider a group of individuals as homogeneous objects with the same goals, involve complex mathematical formulation, and cannot model real-world scenarios such as panic, environmental information, crowds that move dynamically,… More >

    A 63-Year-Old Male with D-Transposition of the Great Arteries Who Had an Early Form of the Arterial Switch Operation

    Michael A. Rebolledo1,*, Jane S. Yao2, Jason N. Johnson1, Umar S. Boston3, Benjamin R. Waller III1

    Congenital Heart Disease, Vol.19, No.1, pp. 65-68, 2024, DOI:10.32604/chd.2024.046638

    Abstract We describe a 63-year-old male who appears to have undergone an early form of the arterial switch operation for D-transposition of the great arteries performed in the mid-1960s. We review the clinical and imaging data that support our conclusion. He had a diagnostic cardiac catheterization which demonstrated severe pulmonary hypertension responsive to epoprostenol and oxygen. Our case may represent one example of the experimental surgical work done prior to Dr. Adibe Jatene’s description of the first successful arterial switch performed in 1975. More >
