Intelligence Control System for Landfills Based on Wireless Sensor Network

This paper put forward an intelligence system for controlling the landfill gas in landfills to make the landfill gas (LFG) exhaust controllably and actively. The system, which is assigned by the wireless sensor network, were developed and supervised by remote applications in workshop instead of manual work. An automatic valve control depending on the sensor units embedded is...

A Community Related Influence Evaluation Model for Social Networks with a Dynamic Perspective

The nature of free information diffusion and sharing in social networks (SNs) has increasingly attracted users to gather in communities to facilitate communication, resulting in increased challenges to community influence analysis in SNs. In SNs, the ability to evaluate how a community affects other users and communities is essential for further applications. Although...

Development of Simulation Program for Temperature Field of Mass Concrete Structures

Most existing temperature field calculation programs have relative defects. In the present paper, based on merits of ANSYS platform, a temperature field calculation program of mass concrete structure is developed and demonstrated. According to actual pouring progress and thermodynamic parameters, a roller-compacted concrete dam is simulated. The difference of maximum temperature...

Improvement of mechanical properties, microscopic structures, and antibacterial activity by Ag/ZnO nanocomposite powder for glaze-decorated ceramic

With the increase in the international trade of ceramics, improvement in the physical and chemical properties of ceramics has become a market demand in recent years. The addition of nanomaterials in glaze can simultaneously improve the mechanical and corrosion resistance properties of ceramics. In this study, the effect of nano-sized Ag/ZnO in glazed ceramic was investigated...

Integrated Furnace for Combustion/Gasification of Biomass Fuel for Tobacco Curing

A new system for providing heat for the flue-curing of tobacco was developed by modifying the conventional direct combustion of biomass fuel (bio-fuel) such that the energy stored in the fuels was fully utilized. The system consisted of an integrated furnace with a heat dissipation structure for combusting and gasifying bio-fuel including solid fuel as well as combusting the...

High-performance of sodium carboxylate-derived materials for electrochemical energy storage

Four types of sustainable sodium carboxylate-derived materials are investigated as novel electrodes with high performance for lithium-ion batteries. Benefiting from the porous morphology provided by their intermolecular interactions, increasing capacity, excellent cycle stability and superior rate performance are observed for the sodium carboxylate- derived materials. The sodium...

Surgical repair and reconstruction of aortic arch in debakey type I aortic dissection: recent advances and single-center experience in the application of branched stent graft

Aortic dissection (AD) represents a clinically uncommon aortic pathology which predicts a dismal prognosis if not promptly treated. In acute Debakey type I AD (ADIAD), aortic lesion extends from aortic root to even distal abdominal aorta among which aortic arch and its three main branches still remain a great surgical challenge for repair and reconstruction. Several decades have...

IFN-λ1 in CHO cells: its expression and biological activity

Background Many studies have investigated the characteristics and biological activities of type III interferon (IFN), finding that it has similar features to type I IFN but also unique actions because it is recognized by a different receptor. Results A full-length recombinant human IFN-λ1 (rhIFN-λ1) cDNA was cloned into the pDF expression vector and stably expressed in Flp-In-CHO...

Plasma trans-fatty acids levels and mortality: a cohort study based on 1999–2000 National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES)

Trans-fatty acids (TFAs) occur in small amounts in nature but became widely produced by the food industry. The hazardous effects of different TFA subtypes to human health are controversial. We aimed to evaluate the association of plasma TFAs levels (elaidic acid, vaccenic acid, palmitelaidic acid, and linoelaidic acid) with mortality. Utilizing 1999–2000 Nutrition Examination...
