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...

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...

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...

Dynamic photovoltaic (PV) greenhouses integrate sustainable energy generation with plant cultivation, offering more possibilities of energy production and microclimate control by adjusting the sun-tracking angles. Previous studies on PV greenhouses barely paid attention to the PV partial shading effects, and rarely recorded the performance...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

Since the 9/11 attack in New York in 2001, a lot of attention has been paid to the protection of critical infrastructures. Chemical industries are without doubt critical infrastructures due to their extreme importance for society in combination with their vulnerability. They play important roles in modern-life society, from producing and...

In general, a finite width correction to stress intensity factor (SIF) is required in the fatigue crack growth. The finite width correction factor can be explained physically from the energy point of view. It is assumed that the finite width correction factor primarily constitutes an energy correction factor, i.e. it corrects the applied load...

Per-pixel time-to-digital converter (TDC) architectures have been exploited by single-photon avalanche diode (SPAD) sensors to achieve high photon throughput, but at the expense of fill factor, pixel pitch and readout efficiency. In contrast, TDC sharing architecture usually features high fill factor at small pixel pitch and energy efficient...

Estimating the latent heat flux accurately is important to improve greenhouse crops irrigation schedules. Aerodynamic and canopy resistances, as two key parameters in the Bulk transfer equations, are already difficult to measure in the open field and even more in greenhouses. In this study, an experiment was conducted in a Venlo-type cucumber...

Anaerobic digestion has been widely applied throughout the world for lignocellulosic biomass treatment and energy recovery. However, the solid digestate from anaerobic digestion still contains a rather large fraction of poorly anaerobic degradable lignocellulosic fibers due to inhibition of lignin, which deeply limits the bioenergy production...
