  • Debonding Failure in FRP Reinforced SHCC Beams Induced from Multiple Flexural-Shear Cracks under Three-Point Bending Test
  • Abstract Strain hardening cement-based composites (SHCC) beam externally bonded with glass fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) plate was examined under three-point flexural test. The effects of the type of substrate used (plain cement mortar vs. SHCC), the use or not of a FRP plate to strengthen the SHCC beam, and the thickness of the FRP plate on the flexural performances were studied. Results show that the ultimate load of SHCC beams strengthened with FRP plate has improved greatly in comparison with plain SHCC beams. The deformation capacity of beams makes little change with an increase in the thickness of FRP plates. The formation…

  • Numerical Analysis of Three-Layer Deep Tunnel Composite Structure
  • Abstract To date, with the increasing attention of countries to urban drainage system, more and more regions around the world have begun to build water conveyance tunnels, sewage pressure deep tunnels and so on. However, the sufficient bearing capacity and corrosion resistance of the structure, which can ensure the actual service life and safety of the tunnel, remain to be further improved. Glass Fiber Reinforced Plastics (GFRP) pipe, with light weight, high strength and corrosion resistance, has the potential to be applied to the deep tunnel structure. This paper proposed a new composite structure of deep tunnel lined with GFRP pipe,…

  • Peridynamic Modeling and Simulation of Fracture Process in Fiber-Reinforced Concrete
  • Abstract In this study, a peridynamic fiber-reinforced concrete model is developed based on the bond-based peridynamic model with rotation effect (BBPDR). The fibers are modelled by a semi-discrete method and distributed with random locations and angles in the concrete specimen, since the fiber content is low, and its scale is smaller than the concrete matrix. The interactions between fibers and concrete matrix are investigated by the improvement of the bond’s strength and stiffness. Also, the frictional effect between the fibers and the concrete matrix is considered, which is divided into static friction and slip friction. To validate the proposed model, several…

  • In-Plane Impact Dynamics Analysis of Re-Entrant Honeycomb with Variable Cross-Section
  • Abstract Due to the unique deformation characteristics of auxetic materials (Poisson’s ratio ), they have better shock resistance and energy absorption properties than traditional materials. Inspired by the concept of variable cross-section design, a new auxetic re-entrant honeycomb structure is designed in this study. The detailed design method of re-entrant honeycomb with variable cross-section (VCRH) is provided, and five VCRH structures with the same relative density and different cross-section change rates are proposed. The in-plane impact resistance and energy absorption abilities of VCRH under constant velocity are investigated by ABAQUS/EXPLICIT. The results show that the introduction of variable cross-section design can…

  • Number Entities Recognition in Multiple Rounds of Dialogue Systems
  • Abstract As a representative technique in natural language processing (NLP), named entity recognition is used in many tasks, such as dialogue systems, machine translation and information extraction. In dialogue systems, there is a common case for named entity recognition, where a lot of entities are composed of numbers, and are segmented to be located in different places. For example, in multiple rounds of dialogue systems, a phone number is likely to be divided into several parts, because the phone number is usually long and is emphasized. In this paper, the entity consisting of numbers is named as number entity. The discontinuous…

  • Stereo Matching Method Based on Space-Aware Network Model
  • Abstract The stereo matching method based on a space-aware network is proposed, which divides the network into three sections: Basic layer, scale layer, and decision layer. This division is beneficial to integrate residue network and dense network into the space-aware network model. The vertical splitting method for computing matching cost by using the space-aware network is proposed for solving the limitation of GPU RAM. Moreover, a hybrid loss is brought forward to boost the performance of the proposed deep network. In the proposed stereo matching method, the space-aware network is used to calculate the matching cost and then cross-based cost aggregation…

  • Behavior of High Strength Concrete Filled Square Steel Tube Stub Columns with Inner CFRP Tube Under Biaxial Eccentric Compression
  • Abstract This paper studies the contribution of CFRP (carbon fiber-reinforced polymer) to the mechanical behavior of high strength concrete-filled square steel tube (HCFST) under biaxial eccentric compression. The new type of composite member is composed of an inner CFRP tube and an outer steel tube with concrete filled in the two tubes. The finite element analysis was made by ABAQUS on the behavior of high strength concrete filled square steel tubular columns with inner CFRP circular tube subjected to bi-axial eccentric loading. The results obtained from the finite element analysis were verified with the experimental results. In addition, the load-deflection curves…

  • An Effective Feature Modeling Approach for 3D Structural Topology Design Optimization
  • Abstract This paper presents a feature modeling approach to address the 3D structural topology design optimization with feature constraints. In the proposed algorithm, various features are formed into searchable shape features by the feature modeling technology, and the models of feature elements are established. The feature elements that meet the design requirements are found by employing a feature matching technology, and the constraint factors combined with the pseudo density of elements are initialized according to the optimized feature elements. Then, through controlling the constraint factors and utilizing the optimization criterion method along with the filtering technology of independent mesh, the structural…

  • Alcoholism Detection by Wavelet Energy Entropy and Linear Regression Classifier
  • Abstract Alcoholism is an unhealthy lifestyle associated with alcohol dependence. Not only does drinking for a long time leads to poor mental health and loss of self-control, but alcohol seeps into the bloodstream and shortens the lifespan of the body’s internal organs. Alcoholics often think of alcohol as an everyday drink and see it as a way to reduce stress in their lives because they cannot see the damage in their bodies and they believe it does not affect their physical health. As their drinking increases, they become dependent on alcohol and it affects their daily lives. Therefore, it is important…

  • Dynamic Pricing Model of E-Commerce Platforms Based on Deep Reinforcement Learning
  • Abstract With the continuous development of artificial intelligence technology, its application field has gradually expanded. To further apply the deep reinforcement learning technology to the field of dynamic pricing, we build an intelligent dynamic pricing system, introduce the reinforcement learning technology related to dynamic pricing, and introduce existing research on the number of suppliers (single supplier and multiple suppliers), environmental models, and selection algorithms. A two-period dynamic pricing game model is designed to assess the optimal pricing strategy for e-commerce platforms under two market conditions and two consumer participation conditions. The first step is to analyze the pricing strategies of e-commerce…
