Current Li-ion batteries dominate the market but face great challenges with respect to safety, cost and the higher energy and power densit requirements of electrical vehicles and stationary energy storage. Relevant for mobile electrical transport, Li-O2 batteries in theory offer the highest specific energy among all the lithium electrochemical...

In a propeller propulsion system, due to the torque working on the propeller, a rotational motion of the fluid is generated. This rotational motion, expressed as a swirl component in the slipstream, does not result in any useful propulsive power, but causes a decrease in propeller efficiency. By recovering the momentum in the crosswise direction...

Microemulsion systems consisting of D<sub>2</sub>O, an alkane, an anionic internal olefin sulfonate surfactant, salt and secondary butyl alcohol (SBA) as co-solvent are studied in a systematic way. In four different sample sets, either the salt content, SBA content or alkane carbon number was varied in order to study the effects of the...

Aging, shrinking cities, urban agglomerations and other new key terms continue to emerge when describing the large-scale population changes in various cities in mainland China. It is important to simulate the distribution of residential populations at a coarse scale to manage cities as a whole, and at a fine scale for policy making in...

Band segregation has been found in the H13 die steel produced by the electroslag remelting (ESR) technology. Chemical and metallographic studies have been carried out on a one ton ESR ingot of H13 die steel, so as to understand the formation mechanism of the band segregation. The results indicate that the T.O content and S content decreased...

The internal mechanism affecting life loss caused by a dam-break flood is complicated. On the basis of analyzing the risk formation path, a risk evaluation indicator system was established which included the hazards, exposure and vulnerability factors. Variable Fuzzy Sets theory was introduced into the risk evaluation of life loss risk grades...

While traditional live-broadcasting is typically comprised of a handful of well-defined workflows, these become insufficient when targeting multiple screens and interactive companion devices on the viewer side. In this case study, we describe the development of an end-to-end system enabling immersive and interactive experiences using an...

Despite the rapid development of risk analysis in dam engineering, there is a relative absence of research on the environmental impact of dam break. As a systematic theory, set pair analysis has a good effect in dealing with uncertainties, although the result is relatively rough and easy to distort. A connection degree of five grades and a...

High-speed flight in GPS-denied environments is currently an important frontier in the research on autonomous flight of micro air vehicles. Autonomous drone races stimulate the advances in this area by representing a very challenging case with tight turns, texture-less floors, and dynamic spectators around the track. These properties hamper...

Safety management systems (SMSs) have gained importance since the 1970s and changed focus from individual management activities to more systematic frameworks. The methods, techniques and tools used in them also became more and more sophisticated. However, from the perspectives of the researcher, company, auditor, government and (safety...

With the growth of global population, the big cities become increasingly crowded. It is not rare to see large crowds in public transportations and events with masses of visitors, such as music festivals and football matches. The question “How to deal with crowds” is receiving attention, both from academia and practical crowd management.<br/>This...

It is a huge challenge for high-tap-density electrodes to achieve high volumetric energy density but without compromising the ionic transportation. Herein, we prepared compact Li<sub>4</sub>Ti<sub>5</sub>O<sub>12</sub> (LTO) microspheres consisting of densely packed primary nanoparticles. The real space distribution of lithium ions inside the...

The usability now serves as a fundamental quality of a computational device, e.g. smartphone. Moreover, the smartphone has firmly embedded into our daily life as an indispensable part, so the context and style that user may interact with them are largely different from a decade ago. Nowadays, testing usability with end user has become a...

The goal of this study is to investigate the effects of different grades of calcined clay on the extrudability and early-age strength development under ambient conditions. Four mix designs were proposed. Three of them contained high, medium, and low grades of calcined clay, respectively, and one was the reference without calcined clay. In terms...

Recent finite element (FE) simulations have revealed the generation and propagation of waves in rail surfaces induced by wheel-rail frictional rolling. These waves have rarely been addressed in the literature. This paper presents an in-depth analysis of these waves, aiming to give new insights into the contact mechanics, a research area in...

We study a special class of mechanical metamaterials, namely lattices, based on beams (struts) with nonuniform cross sections, of which pentamode mechanical metamaterials are a special case. Five symmetric beam types including simple cylinder, concave double cone, convex double cone, concave hyperbolic, and convex hyperbolic are considered....

Chemical deformation (chemical shrinkage/expansion), the absolute volume change during reactions, is a key parameter influencing the volume stability, especially the autogenous deformation of a binder material. This work, for the first time, reports an in-depth investigation on the chemical deformation of metakaolin based geopolymer (MKG)....

Following the growth in global trade activities, vessel traffic has increased dramatically in some busy waterways and ports. However, such increments have made it more complex to manage the regional vessel traffic, which can increase the risk of an accident in the area. To model and analyze the relationship between vessel traffic and maritime...

Recently, lubricant-infused surfaces (LIS) have emerged as a prominent class of surface technology for antifouling, anti-icing and anticorrosion applications. However, long-term corrosion exposure and mechanical damages may deteriorate the practical performance of LIS during application. In this study, a robust LIS was fabricated by the...
