Quantitative analysis of factors that affect oil pipeline network accident based on Bayesian networks: A case study in China

Some factors can affect the consequences of oil pipeline accident and their effects should be analyzed to improve emergency preparation and emergency response. Although there are some qualitative analysis models of risk factors’ effects, the quantitative analysis model still should be researched. In this study, we introduce a Bayesian network (BN) model of risk factors’ effects...

Failure mechanism analysis of asphalt–aggregate systems subjected to direct shear loading

In order to investigate the mechanical behavior of asphalt–aggregate systems subjected to direct shear loading and reveal the shear failure mechanism, four groups of direct shear tests were conducted on composite specimens under different experimental conditions with a self-manufactured direct shear test apparatus at 25 °C. Comparative studies were conducted to evaluate the...

Non-orthogonal multiple access in a downlink multiuser beamforming system with limited CSI feedback

Non-orthogonal multiple access (NOMA) has been recognized as a promising multiple access technology for fifth generation (5G) mobile communication system. However, the advantage of NOMA is only verified under the ideal condition that the transmitter has the perfect knowledge of channel state information (CSI). In this paper, NOMA downlink multiuser system, in which the...

Enhanced Stability of Gold Magnetic Nanoparticles with Poly(4-styrenesulfonic acid-co-maleic acid): Tailored Optical Properties for Protein Detection

Gold magnetic nanoparticles (GoldMag) have attracted great attention due to their unique physical and chemical performances combining those of individual Fe3O4 and Au nanoparticles. Coating GoldMag with polymers not only increases the stability of the composite particles suspended in buffer but also plays a key role for establishing point-of-care optical tests for clinically...

Classification and criteria of limit cases for singular second-order linear equations with complex coefficients on time scales

The main object of this paper is to establish the classification and some criteria of the limit cases for singular second-order linear equations with complex coefficients on time scales. According to the number of linearly independent solutions in suitable weighted square integrable spaces, this class of equations is classified into cases I, II, and III. Moreover, the exact...

Nitrogen addition shifts the microbial community in the rhizosphere of Pinus tabuliformis in Northwestern China

Atmospheric nitrogen (N) deposition profoundly alters the soil microbial communities and will thus affect nutrient cycles. The effects of N availability on microbial community, however, are not clear. We used PLFA analysis to evaluate the effects of a gradient of N addition (0, 2.8, 5.6, 11.2, and 22.4 g N m-2 y-1) for three years on the rhizospheric microbial community of Pinus...

Existence of positive solutions to elliptic problems involving the fractional Laplacian

This paper focuses on the following elliptic problem involving a fractional Laplacian: ( − Δ ) α u + V ( x ) u = f ( u ) in  R N , where N ≥ 2 , α ∈ ( 0 , 1 ) , ( − Δ ) α stands for the fractional Laplacian. Using some variational methods, we obtain the existence of positive solutions without compactness conditions. MSC: 34A08, 35A15, 58E30.

Isobavachalcone Attenuates MPTP-Induced Parkinson's Disease in Mice by Inhibition of Microglial Activation through NF-κB Pathway

Parkinson's disease (PD) is a complex multi-system and age-related neurodegenerative disorder. The intervention targeting neuroinflammation in PD patients is one effective strategy to slow down or inhibit disease progression. Microglia-mediated inflammatory response plays an important role in Parkinson's, Alzheimer's and other cerebral diseases. Isobavachalcone is a main...
