Modeling a Decision Support System for Risk Management of COVID-19

A[aut]Bai, Shan decision support system that performs a comprehensive analysis on risks of the COVID-19 pandemic and its subsequent medium- and long-term impacts is highly desirable, especially in view of the still ongoing pandemic in the world. This paper focuses on the modeling process of such a decision support system. The modeling process includes the following steps: generating appropriate strategies that suit the specific situation concerned, where each strategy is composed of measures and each measure consists of a static (textual) part relating to the contexts abstracted from existing literature via techniques inspired by natural language processing and a dynamic part adapted by using scenario planning method and agent-based simulation; generating utility-based recommender based on soft systems methodology and recommending the Top-N strategies to the group of stakeholders based on the scores of the strategies using multiple-criteria decision analysis method. The proposed model is highly flexible in that it recommends appropriate strategies in respect of the various scenarios concerned and may thus be applied to various types of risk management.

Research on the Numerical Representation of Stock Linkage Prediction

In[aut]Ma, Chi this[aut]Wang, Shaofan paper[aut]Lu, Shengliang, time[aut]Han, Guojing series of numerical correlations and morphological similarities are analyzed. It is proposed to combine the correlation coefficient with a time-weighted dynamic time warping (DTW) distance to emphasize timeliness as a stock linkage numerical formula. Therefore, the problem of finding the connection relationship between stocks can be converted into a numerical representation problem of stock linkage, and a stock linkage prediction optimized model based on long short-term memory (LSTM) can be established. At the same time, in order to improve the prediction performance of the LSTM model for the time series of stock interconnection values, wavelet transform and denoising autoencoder are used to denoise and reconstruct the input samples, thereby achieving more accurate prediction and analysis of stock linkage.

Spectrum Sensing Algorithm Based on Random Forest in Dynamic Fading Channel

Efficient[aut]Gao, Zhijun utilization[aut]Wang, Xin and energy saving of spectrum is a crucial technology in 5G, and spectrum sensing is an important foundation and core of efficient utilization of spectrum resources. At present, good results have been achieved for spectrum sensing in Gaussian channels, but in dynamic fading channels, due to fading and multi-path transmission factors, the spectrum sensing performance is poor. To solve this problem, this paper first proposes a perceptive system model under dynamic fading channel, and on the basis of this model, a spectral sensing algorithm based on the random forest is proposed. The algorithm extracts the fading amplitude gain, the energy value of the received signal, and the characteristic parameters of the signal cycle spectrum in the scene of the dynamic fading channel as the sample parameters to construct the random forest and then senses and classifies the constructed random forest signals to determine the state of the channel occupancy.

A Study on Escape Path Planning of Multi-Source/Multi-Sink for Public Buildings

With[aut]Zhang, Yi the[aut]Liu, Tianqi development[aut]Wang, Chi of[aut]Xie, Chenlei urbanization and the rise of commercial center, the complex internal structure of public commercial buildings and the high density of people make the evacuation of people more aimless, and accurate path planning plays an important role in escape and evacuation. Dijkstra algorithm can only satisfy the single point to single point shortest path planning situation and cannot actually solve the shortest path planning problem with many source points and sink points. Thus, this paper studies the shortest path of escape with multi-source/multi-sink, and proposes an improved Dijkstra algorithm, which can solve the shortest path planning task of escape from multi-source point to multi-sink point and has fast and efficient characteristics of the original Dijkstra algorithm, thus improving the escape efficiency of personnel. In the end, this paper simulates the improved algorithm using the data of different distribution density of different people. The experimental results show that the proposed algorithm is more practical for the shortest path planning from multi-source to multi-sink under the condition of relatively dispersed personnel.

The accurate 3D spatial coordinate information and DSM data it obtains provide a new and effective observation method for the establishment of a smart city 3D model. How to obtain useful terrain information and feature information, and to study the application of point clouds in the construction of smart cities is a problem we need to solve. According to these problems, we propose a method for building extraction and 3D reconstruction using LiDAR point clouds. First, we process the airborne laser point cloud and then fit the roof plane by clustering the roof plane point cloud, and finally determine the outer boundary of the roof and the boundary of each plane, and use the boundary to obtain the three-dimensional coordinates of each corner of the roof to reconstruct three-dimensional model of the building. In addition, it explores the design methods and operations of different building 3D models and compares the effects of the two modeling methods.

Research on the Connection Performance of SMA Pipe Coupling for Sports Equipment

Based[aut]Yang, Xudong on[aut]Gu, Fan the[aut]Zhang, Yuyu constitutive[aut]Jiang, Yuhan relation of shape memory alloy (SMA) proposed by Auricchio and Taylor, a numerical simulation study was carried out on the connection performance and the functional failure mechanism of SMA pipe coupling, and the effect of interference magnitude, the wall thickness of SMA connector on the stress distribution and tensile strength was investigated. The simulation result shows that with the increase of interference magnitude, the Mises stress of the SMA pipe coupling increases accordingly, as well as the ultimate pullout load increases. With the increase of the wall thickness of SMA connector, the Mises stress of the SMA connector decreases, whereas the Mises stress of connected steel pipe increases. Furthermore, it is suggested that the gradual internal chamfer should be machined at both ends of SMA connector to alleviate the stress concentration. To improve the connection performance and the tensile strength of SMA pipe coupling, it should take into consideration concurrently to the increase of the wall thickness and the length of the SMA connector to avoid the yield failure of steel pipe.

Kalman Consensus Filtering Algorithm Based on Update Scheduling Scheme for Estimating the Concentrations of Pollutants

In[aut]Wang, Rui this[aut]Li, Yahui paper, a Kalman consensus filtering algorithm is proposed based on the status updates scheduling scheme (US-KCF) to estimate the concentrations of pollutants in the cabin. By introducing the concept of age of information (AoI), the freshness of status updates and the average AoI of wireless sensor network (WSN) are measured. Under the condition of network energy constraint, this paper designed a status updates scheduling scheme to minimize the average AoI of the network by selecting the status updates that need to be transmitted on the cluster head which can improve the convergence speed and energy saving performance of KCF algorithm. Simulation results show that compared with other consensus algorithms, this algorithm can get the estimation value of the target state more quickly and capable of reducing the network energy consumption effectively.

The welding sequence of different welding points on the same stirrup has an important impact on the welding quality of the reinforcement framework. In order to optimize the welding sequence of reinforcement framework, the three-dimensional finite element model of reinforcement framework of six main reinforcement is established to simulate the maximum stress of reinforcement skeleton under three different welding schemes (Scheme 1: welding the upper and lower four welding points first and then welding the middle two welding points; Scheme 2: welding the middle two welding points first and then welding the upper and lower four welding points; Scheme 3: simultaneous welding of six welding points) Residual stress and strain are analyzed and compared to select the best welding scheme. The results show that the residual stress mainly occurs at the solder joint after welding, and the maximum stress value of the solder joint closest to the clamping end is 216.20 MPa. The thermal deformation caused by welding has little effect on the overall size. Compared with Scheme 1 and Scheme 3, the reinforcement framework welded under Scheme 2 has better welding quality.

The nonlinearity in solenoid actuator was studied by combining methods of theory, simulation, and experiment. Two theoretical equations for electromagnetic suction on voltage/current were obtained, then the equation with voltage was modified through electromagnetic simulation, and the test data were used to get the fitted parameters in equation with current. The results of simulation and theoretical calculation are consistent, and the fitted curve is close to the test, indicating the two equations are reliable. This reveals the nonlinear relationship between solenoid actuator and excitation and promotes follow-up control research.

The project operation and maintenance based on BIM technology is limited by various obstacles and has not been widely promoted. By reading relevant literature and combining with expert opinions, this paper has sorted out 13 independent influencing factors from five dimensions of industry, economy, policy, technology, and law. In this study, questionnaire survey and key interview were used to obtain preliminary data. Principal component analysis has been used to reduce the dimension of obstacle factors, and social network has been used to further analyze the centrality of obstacle factors. The data analysis results show that the deep influencing factors that hinder the operation and maintenance of BIM are insufficient technology and lack of policies, while “supervision intensity,” “scientific research support,” “compatibility,” and “integrity” are important factors that hinder the development of BIM operation and maintenance. The results of this study can provide effective reference for the promotion and development of project operation and maintenance based on BIM technology, help improve the maintenance level of building equipment, and promote the efficient and sustainable operation of intelligent buildings.

As the grinding wheel speed and workpiece speed increases, the value of Ra decreases. The value of ceramic ring surface roughness Ra increases with the increase of grinding wheel feed rate and Z-axis oscillation rate. The determination of the best grinding process will provide the basis for full-ceramic bearing ring precision machining.

Simulation and Optimization of Multi-UAV Route Planning Based on Hybrid Particle Swarm Optimization

The[aut]Peng, Xuezhao multiple[aut]Guan, Feng traveling[aut]Wang, Zhongpu salesman[aut]Gao, Shushida problem (mTSP) is an obviously NP-Hard problems in the optimization of complex planning. By adding much more conditions and meanings to the objective function of the mTSP, the vehicle routing problem (VRP) and trajectory optimization problem of the drones can be further evolved. This paper focuses on the multi-UAV route planning problem which is one of the typical mTSP. But traditional algorithms include genetic algorithm and particle swarm optimization are premature in varying degrees and easy to fall into local optimization. Therefore, this paper adds the crossover operator and mutate operator in the genetic algorithm to the particle swarm optimization, and proposes a hybrid particle swarm optimization to solve the multi-UAV route planning problem. The algorithm can make the particles cross the optimal value, and the particles can mutate themselves to strengthen the interchange between the particles. So it can enrich the diversity of the population. Meanwhile, it can improve the global optimality of the algorithm. Finally, it proves that the hybrid particle swarm optimization has better performance when compared with the simulation results of genetic algorithm.

With[aut]Yang, Jingxuan theBao, Longsheng development[aut]Xu, Qicheng of[aut]Liu, Junjie the[aut]Wang, Yang civil aviation market, how to improve the operating efficiency of airport taxis while ensuring a balanced income for drivers has become an important task. This paper recommends using a hybrid strategy model for analysis. It is analyzed, in this paper, the factors influencing the driver’s decisions to obtain the qualitative relationship between the driver’s income and costs such as time cost and no-load cost. We simplified the problems that are a game between driver groups whether or not to wait to establish a hybrid strategy model and to provide references in the selection of the two schemes for drivers. A scheme to give priority to short-distance passenger-carrying drivers is proposed. The two sides of the game are re-determined as short-distance passenger-carrying drivers and long-distance passenger-carrying drivers and income equilibrium of both parties are obtained. The results showed that under the new scheme, both parties have equal expectations of income so the new scheme is feasible.

Dynamic Route Optimization Problem Based on Variable Range Short-Term Traffic Flow Forecast

A[aut]Dai, Guanghui dynamic[aut]Shao, Qianqian route[aut]Zhang, Yunfeng optimization[aut]Zhang, Siqi scheme based on short-term traffic flow prediction is designed. The overall idea of this paper is to use the real-time information of each section of the urban road communication network to predict the short-term traffic speed of the road in the next 5 min, in order to reflect the changes of the road traffic state of each section of the urban road traffic network. Then, the speed prediction information of each section in the urban road traffic network is converted into the estimated average travel time of each section by using the speed-time conversion formula, and then the road weight of each section in the urban road traffic network is set. Finally, the optimal route at the current time is calculated by using the improved algorithm based on the traditional Dijkstra algorithm. Before the traffic participant arrives at the destination, the scheme will cycle through the short-term prediction and route optimization of the traffic flow until the traffic participant arrives at the destination. And then achieve the balance of traffic conditions of various sections in the urban road traffic network, improve the situation of urban road traffic congestion, and avoid the emergence of bad road traffic conditions such as “navigation congestion”.

Study on Traffic Volume Transferred by Bohai Strait Tunnel

The [aut]Wang, Bing Bohai[aut]Liu, Fei Economic[aut]Li, Yu Peng Rim is a very important political and economic area, but Bohai Strait is a bottleneck and hinders this region’s development. This paper studied the influence of the Bohai Strait tunnel on transferred traffic volume of Bohai Economic Rim. The influencing parameters included the network flow assignment, cargo volume, transferred traffic volume and tunnel toll. The results indicated that the Bohai Strait tunnel can undertake large proportion of traffic volume and attract vast cargo volume. Large cargo volume is transferred to the routes of direct transportation and undersea tunnel, which relieves traffic congestion of Circum-Bohai-Sea region. Cargo volume in undersea tunnel is sensitive to the tunnel toll. When tunnel toll is larger than the critical value, there is no advantage for undersea tunnel, and the tunnel toll should be taken into full consideration.

Based[aut]Yang, Xudong on[aut]Gu, Fan the[aut]Liu, Liqiang sequential[aut]Li, Qinghe coupling method and the temperature rise curve according to ISO-834, the ABAQUS numerical models of grout sleeve splicing joint was established. At a different fire exposure time, the temperature field and ultimate tensile strength of splicing joint were numerically analyzed. Meanwhile, by means of the stress distribution analysis of grouting material, the failure mechanism of splicing joint was put forward. Numerical simulation result shows that under the action of ultimate tensile load, the Mises stress of rebar decreases gradually along axial direction from uploaded end to non-loaded end, the Mises stress of sleeve increases gradually along axial direction from sleeve end to middle cross section, and the stress distribution of grouting material is relatively uniform. Furthermore, with the increase of fire exposure time, the stress state of grouting material changes from trip-direction compressive state to trip-direction tensile state gradually, which leads to the ultimate tensile load of grout sleeve splicing joint decreases.

Mechanical Property of Grout Sleeve Splicing Joint Under Reversed Cyclic Loading for Precast Stadium

The[aut]Yang, Xudong seismic[aut]Gu, Fan performance[aut]Li, Qinghe of[aut]Liu, Liqiang grout sleeve splicing joint was investigated in this paper. Under the action of reversed cyclic loading, the numerical model of grout sleeve splicing joint was developed and was evaluated in terms of the variation of stress distribution, failure process, hysteresis loop, and energy dissipation. Numerical simulation result shows that the seismic performance of grout sleeve splicing joint mainly depends on the stress state of grouting material. In the first two loading cycles, the mechanical interaction with uneven distribution is the main load transmission mechanism from rebar to sleeve, and the fracture damage in grouting material near the end of sleeve is the main mode of energy dissipation. Between the second and the seventh loading cycles, through the stress redistribution, the grouting material in the area far from the end of sleeve gradually undertakes the energy dissipation function by means of fracture damage, and the obvious oblique compressive zone in grouting material is formed, which is the force transmission path from rebar to sleeve. Meanwhile, it decreases the elastic modulus of entire grouting material to a stable value.

First of all, in the experiments, the quality of the audio signal is improved by pre-emphasis, framing, and windowing methods. Secondly, to obtain sufficient audio information, Mel frequency cepstral coefficient is selected as a parameter for feature extraction. Lastly, multilayer perceptron (MLP), convolutional neural network (CNN), support vector machine (SVM), and CNN + SVM are used to classify eight types of audio signals according to the complexities of the indoor environment. The result of the proposed experiments indicates that the CNN + SVM combination algorithm exhibits a higher accuracy rate for the classification of audio compared to that of the traditional single classification algorithm.

A Simplified Method of Radiator to Improve the Simulation Speed of Room Temperature Distribution

Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) has[aut]Cao, Zhenqiang become[aut]Niu, Tong one[aut]Sun, Haiyi of[aut]Lu, Xia the important methods of indoor environmental analysis. Because the indoor environment of the building has the characteristics of large space and complex structure, the calculation amount of directly using CFD to simulate the indoor temperature distribution is so huge that the simulation efficiency is too low for practical application. Based on the shortcomings of the existing building environment simulation methods, Solidworks Flow Simulation and MATLAB are used to carry out research on indoor temperature distribution simulation methods. The overall treatment is equivalent to a constant heat source, which simplifies the heat dissipation model and avoids simulating complex flow patterns. Compared with traditional simulation methods, it can greatly improve simulation efficiency and model solving speed while ensuring simulation accuracy. The overall method is well supported by the simulation results.

The CFDST columns and steel beams constrained by MT joints can form a kind of mechanical system of the prefabricated frame, which expected to have a wide application prospect. In this paper, the finite element method was used to compare the hysteretic performance of the CFDST columns with different hollow ratio (χ) and axial compression ratio (n) under the constraints of ordinary joint and the MT joint. Through the comprehensive comparative analysis of the component stress cloud diagram, hysteresis curve and skeleton curve, it is concluded that the CFDST columns under the MT joint constraint have better energy dissipation performance and ductility than the columns under the ordinary joint constraint. The results show that the new frame system can meet the requirements of earthquake resistance.
