A recently discovered photodecarboxylase from Chlorella variabilis NC64A ( CvFAP) bears the promise for the efficient and selective synthesis of hydrocarbons from carboxylic acids. CvFAP, however, exhibits a clear preference for long-chain fatty acids thereby limiting its broad applicability. In this contribution, we demonstrate that the...

The internal relative humidity (RH) plays a crucial role in most of the concrete properties. Self-desiccation caused by continuous cement hydration is a major factor affecting the RH of concrete. This paper investigates the relationship between RH and microstructure for cementitious systems in the case of self-desiccation. A series of paste...

Many systems are dynamic and time-varying in the real world. Discovering the vital nodes in temporal networks is more challenging than that in static networks. In this study, we proposed a temporal information gathering (TIG) process for temporal networks. The TIG-process, as a node's importance metric, can be used to do the node ranking. As...

Glaciers in the Tibetan Plateau are an important indicator of climate change. Automatic glacier facies mapping utilizing remote sensing data is challenging due to the spectral similarity of supraglacial debris and the adjacent bedrock. Most of the available glacier datasets do not provide the boundary of clean ice and debris-covered glacier...

This paper proposes a novel hybrid model for learning discrete and continuous dynamics of car-following behaviors. Multiple modes representing driving patterns are identified by partitioning the model into groups of states. The model is visualizable and interpretable for car-following behavior recognition, traffic simulation, and human-like...

Data are essential in all areas of geophysics. They are used to better understand and manage systems, either directly or via models. Given the complexity and spatiotemporal variability of geophysical systems (e.g., precipitation), a lack of sufficient data is a perennial problem, which is exacerbated by various drivers, such as climate change...

An analytical model for predicting the relative chloride diffusion coefficient in cementitious materials at different degrees of water saturation is presented in this paper. The model is developed based on the Nernst-Einstein equation and conductivity of cementitious electrolyte, as well as on moisture distribution in the pore structure. Good...

Orthogonal signal-division multiplexing (OSDM) is a generalized modulation scheme to bridge the gap between orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) and single-carrier frequency-domain equalization. It allows significantly more flexibility in system design; however, over doubly-selective channels, it suffers from a special signal...

In the presence of discontinuous time-varying delays, neither Krasovskii nor Razumikhin techniques can be successfully applied to adaptive stabilization of uncertain switched time-delay systems. This paper develops a new adaptive control scheme for switched time-delay systems that can handle impulsive behavior in both states and time-varying...

The performance and deformation of ballast bed are significantly influenced by the particle morphology (size and shape), the rheology (translation and rotation), and the degradation (breakage and abrasion). Regarding the ballast particle morphology, the ballast particle size is generally measured by sieving and described with the Particle Size...

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...

Microwave heating is an encouraging heating technology for the maintenance, recycling, and deicing of asphalt pavement. To investigate the microwave heating properties of asphalt mixture, laboratory tests and numerical simulations were done and compared. Two types of Stone Mastic Asphalt (SMA) mixture samples (with basalt aggregates and steel...

To mitigate the ballast flight risk in the high-speed railway, this paper presents three new polyurethane bonding schemes which have negligible influence to tamping operations. With the application of these bonding schemes, a series of laboratory tests indicated that the polyurethane-reinforced ballast exhibited much larger lateral resistance...

We have developed a scheme that retrieves primary reflections in the two-way traveltime domain by filtering the data. The data have their own filter that removes internal multiple reflections, whereas the amplitudes of the retrieved primary reflections are compensated for two-way transmission losses. Application of the filter does not require...

In this paper, we present an algorithm to estimate the relative acoustic transfer function (RTF) of a target source in wireless acoustic sensor networks (WASNs). Two well-known methods to estimate the RTF are the covariance subtraction (CS) method and the covariance whitening (CW) approach, the latter based on the generalized eigenvalue...

The radial sand ridges (denoted as “RSRs” hereafter) in the Southern Yellow Sea, China, are morphologically striking because of the remarkable size and radial planar orientation, standing out as a unique coastal geomorphology among the worldwide sand ridge systems. The formation of this giant fan‐shaped geomorphic feature requires delicate...

Despite advances in turbulence modelling, the Smagorinsky model remains a popular choice for large eddy simulation (LES) due to its simplicity and ease of use. The dissipation in turbulence energy that the model introduces, is proportional to the Smagorinsky constant, of which many different values have been proposed. These values have been...
