Antenna array design by a contraction adaptive particle swarm optimization algorithm

Massive multiple input multiple output (MIMO) has drawn intensive attention of researchers for solving huge data transmissions in the fifth generation wireless communication. Antennas aligning in array bring in advantages for interference reduction of incoming wave signals and interference offset among antenna elements. The design of antenna array is studied in this paper. The...

Joint Transportation and Inventory Strategy for Perishable Items with Weibull Distribution under Carbon Emission Regulations

This paper studies the optimal transportation and inventory strategy for perishable items under carbon cap-and-trade and carbon tax regulations. Nonlinear optimization models are constructed to maximize the total profits per unit time when the deterioration rate satisfies a two-parameter Weibull distribution and the demand rate is a linear function with respect to the current...

Atomic Layer Deposition of Buffer Layers for the Growth of Vertically Aligned Carbon Nanotube Arrays

Vertically aligned carbon nanotube arrays (VACNTs) show a great potential for various applications, such as thermal interface materials (TIMs). Besides the thermally oxidized SiO2, atomic layer deposition (ALD) was also used to synthesize oxide buffer layers before the deposition of the catalyst, such as Al2O3, TiO2, and ZnO. The growth of VACNTs was found to be largely dependent...

Sealing properties and structure optimization of packer rubber under high pressure and high temperature

During hydraulic fracturing operations of low-permeability reservoirs, packers are the key component to ensure the success of multistage fracturing. Packers enable sections of the wellbore to be sealed off and separately fractured by hydraulic pressure, one at a time, while the remainder of the wellbore is not affected. However, reliable sealing properties of the packer rubber...

Time-Dependent Deformations of Eccentrically Loaded Reinforced Concrete Columns

If reinforced concrete columns and walls in high-rise buildings are subjected to axial load for a sustained duration, long-term lateral deformation (or curvature) as well as axial shortening increase over time due to the creep and shrinkage of concrete. In the present study, sustained load tests were performed to evaluate the time-dependent axial shortening and lateral...

Reactive power operability of distributed energy resources for voltage stability of distribution networks

The penetration level of distributed energy resources (DERs) is increasing and has significant impact on the voltage stability of distribution networks. Based on the various types of DERs with distinct reactive power characteristics (RPC), their different contributions to the system voltage stability require classification. Firstly, the features of DERs are reviewed and...

Improving Magnetofection of Magnetic Polyethylenimine Nanoparticles into MG-63 Osteoblasts Using a Novel Uniform Magnetic Field

This study aimed to improve the magnetofection of MG-63 osteoblasts by integrating the use of a novel uniform magnetic field with low molecular weight polyethylenimine modified superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles (PEI-SPIO-NPs). The excellent characteristics of PEI-SPIO-NPs such as size, zeta potential, the pDNA binding and protective ability were determined to be suitable...

Exploring interacting holographic dark energy in a perturbed universe with parameterized post-Friedmann approach

, Jing-Fei Zhang, and Xin Zhang generalized the parameterized post-Friedmann (PPF) framework to accommodate the IDE scenario [57, 58] (for the original PPF approach, see Refs. [90, 91]). It has been shown

Cross-listing and CSR performance: evidence from AH shares

This study investigates the association between corporate social responsibility (CSR) performance and cross-listing. In a clean setting where a change in CSR performance can be attributed to the cross-listing, we find a statistically significant and economically meaningful increase in CSR performance for the cross-listed firms. Moreover, such an increase comes mostly in technical...

Geniposide Protects against Obesity-Related Cardiac Injury through AMPKα- and Sirt1-Dependent Mechanisms

Our previous study found that geniposide, an agonist of glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor (GLP-1R), protected against cardiac hypertrophy via the activation of AMP-activated protein kinase α (AMPKα). However, the effects of geniposide on obesity-related cardiac injury remain unknown. Here, we examine whether geniposide attenuates obesity-related cardiac dysfunction. Adult mice...

The impact of GJA8 SNPs on susceptibility to age-related cataract

The gap junction protein alpha 8 (GJA8) gene has been widely studied in human congenital cataracts. However, little is known about its relationship with age-related cataract (ARC). In this study, three GJA8-tagged single nucleotide polymorphisms related to an increased ARC risk were identified: rs2132397 for general ARC under both dominant and additive models; rs7541950 for...
