    Vers une approche psychoacoustique et qualitative des paysages sonores de la commune de Sidi Bou Saïd

    Mohamed Amin Hammami1 , Christophe Claramunt2

    Revue Internationale de Géomatique, Vol.30, No.2, pp. 215-243, 2020, DOI:10.3166/rig.2022.00113

    Abstract The research presented in this paper introduces a qualitative approach for the representation of urban sound scapes. The approach combines a series of in situ psychoacoustics measurements recorded with different sensors with a qualitative evaluation derived from human beings acting in these urban environments. The experiments realized in the city of Sidi Bou Saïd illustrate the potential of the combination of the quantitative and qualitative views, as well as demonstration of the feasibility of the whole approach when experimented in a real urban environment.

    Fawad Nasim1,2,*, Sohail Masood1,2, Arfan Jaffar1,2, Usman Ahmad1, Muhammad Rashid3

    Computer Systems Science and Engineering, Vol.46, No.3, pp. 3175-3190, 2023, DOI:10.32604/csse.2023.034550

    Abstract An intelligent sound-based early fault detection system has been proposed for vehicles using machine learning. The system is designed to detect faults in vehicles at an early stage by analyzing the sound emitted by the car. Early detection and correction of defects can improve the efficiency and life of the engine and other mechanical parts. The system uses a microphone to capture the sound emitted by the vehicle and a machine-learning algorithm to analyze the sound and detect faults. A possible fault is determined in the vehicle based on this processed sound. Binary classification is done at the first stage… More >

    Zeinel Momynkulov1, Zhandos Dosbayev2,3,*, Azizah Suliman4, Bayan Abduraimova5, Nurzhigit Smailov2, Maigul Zhekambayeva2, Dusmat Zhamangarin6

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.75, No.1, pp. 2191-2208, 2023, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2023.036205

    Abstract Video analytics is an integral part of surveillance cameras. Compared to video analytics, audio analytics offers several benefits, including less expensive equipment and upkeep expenses. Additionally, the volume of the audio datastream is substantially lower than the video camera datastream, especially concerning real-time operating systems, which makes it less demanding of the data channel’s bandwidth needs. For instance, automatic live video streaming from the site of an explosion and gunshot to the police console using audio analytics technologies would be exceedingly helpful for urban surveillance. Technologies for audio analytics may also be used to analyze video recordings and identify occurrences.… More >

    Oncologie, Vol.24, No.4, pp. 717-727, 2022, DOI:10.32604/oncologie.2022.026998

    Abstract Background: Breast cancer (BC) is the most common malignant tumor in women, and its morbidity and mortality are increasing each year, due to the lack of specific clinical symptoms in the early stage of BC, and the lack of diagnostic methods for early breast cancer. Therefore, identifying an effective diagnostic method for early BC has become urgent. Materials and Methods: Breast lesions with a histological diagnosis that were examined by ultrasonic elastography (UE) in our department from June 2020 to December 2021 were reviewed. qRT-PCR was performed to measure the expression levels of miR-144-5p and miR-26b-5p in the plasma of… More >

    Current Perspectives on Umbilical Cord Abnormalities Including Blood Flow Parameters Based on Ultrasound Observations

    Xue Song1,2, Cun Liu2, Jingying Wang1,*, Xinglian Yang1, Mingrui Li1

    Molecular & Cellular Biomechanics, Vol.19, No.4, pp. 209-219, 2022, DOI:10.32604/mcb.2022.026082

    Abstract The umbilical cord is a vital structure between the fetus and placenta for the growth and well-being of the fetus. Although the umbilical cord may be the only organ that dies at the beginning of life, it is one of the most important parts of the feta-placental unit and plays a role in determining how life begins. In general, the prenatal examination of the umbilical cord is limited to the observation of the number of vessels and the evaluation of umbilical artery blood flow parameters. Pathologists have done more research on the morphological characteristics of the umbilical cord and linked… More >

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.74, No.1, pp. 1069-1091, 2023, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2023.032719

    Abstract Environmental sound classification (ESC) involves the process of distinguishing an audio stream associated with numerous environmental sounds. Some common aspects such as the framework difference, overlapping of different sound events, and the presence of various sound sources during recording make the ESC task much more complicated and complex. This research is to propose a deep learning model to improve the recognition rate of environmental sounds and reduce the model training time under limited computation resources. In this research, the performance of transformer and convolutional neural networks (CNN) are investigated. Seven audio features, chromagram, Mel-spectrogram, tonnetz, Mel-Frequency Cepstral Coefficients (MFCCs), delta… More >

    David Grewell1,*, Gowrishankar Srinivasan1, Eric Cochran2

    Journal of Renewable Materials, Vol.2, No.3, pp. 157-165, 2014, DOI:10.7569/JRM.2014.634112

    Abstract Presented in this study is a novel recycling strategy for poly(lactic acid) (PLA) in which the depolymerization is rapidly promoted by the base-catalyzed hydrol-/alcohol-ysis of the terminal ester bonds under mild conditions. Post-consumer PLA water bottles were cut into approximately 6 x 2 mm plastic chips and heated to 50–60o C in water, ethanol, or methanol as the depolymerization medium. A variety of carbonate salts and alkaline metal oxides were screened as potential catalysts. High-power ultrasound was also investigated as a means to accelerate the PLA decomposition. Both mass loss and HPLC analysis of the treated suspensions showed that the… More >

    Jintao Liu1, Juan Zhao1, Xiaowei Shen1,2,*

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.134, No.2, pp. 981-1003, 2023, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2022.021641

    Abstract In this work, an acoustic topology optimization method for structural surface design covered by porous materials is proposed. The analysis of acoustic problems is performed using the isogeometric boundary element method. Taking the element density of porous materials as the design variable, the volume of porous materials as the constraint, and the minimum sound pressure or maximum scattered sound power as the design goal, the topology optimization is carried out by solid isotropic material with penalization (SIMP) method. To get a limpid 0–1 distribution, a smoothing Heaviside-like function is proposed. To obtain the gradient value of the objective function, a… More >
