Prediction of Rolling Force Based on a Fusion of Extreme Learning Machine and Self Learning Model of Rolling Force

Aiming at the rolling force model of hot strip rolling mill, the forecasting technique based on ELM (extreme learning machine) is presented in this paper. Initially, the variables associated with control rolling are identified by the analysis of the traditional formula of rolling force, in order to ensure the effectiveness of the model, and then apply ELM network to predict models. Production data is applied to train and test the above network, and compare with the modified calculated value of rolling force, which got from the self-learning model of rolling force. The results show that the thickness can be predicted more rapidly and exactly, which can meet the actual demand of production, when this model and the rolling force learning model are integrated.

The Optimal Pan for Baking Brownie

In order to maximize the pan number placed in the oven and the even distribution of heat in a pan when baking brownie, we propose two mathematical models, named as “edge cutting model” and “weight evaluation model”, to get the solutions. The “edge cutting model” mathematically proves how the heat diffusion distributes over the outer edge of the pans with various geometric shapes by cutting the edge into small components and then deducing the functional relation between the heat distribution respect to the ratio of the surface area to the mass of each component. And we prove why the heat concentrates in the four corners of the rectangular pan and why the heat evenly distributes on the outer edge of the round pan. Further, we simulate the heat distribution results of different shapes of the pan when it is placed in the oven by using the software of the ANSYS. And the results are consistent with the theory analysis, which demonstrate the feasibility of the proposed model.

Optimization Model Under Grouping Batch for Prefabricated Components Production Cost

During the prefabricated component (PC) production stage, for many kinds of PCs, production technologies are not the same. It is an important reason for high cost of PC production that reasonable group batch plan is lacked. By group technology and planning theory, an optimization model of grouping batch production for a variety of PCs is established. The model regards the minimum of the cost of production of PCs as the objective function. The size of the bottom mold, the type of embedded parts and connectors and the number of molds in the production process of PCs are constrains. By comparative analysis of application instance, the production cost under grouping batch for PCs is significantly reduced. It proves that the optimization model has a reference for production cost control under grouping batch for PCs.

Air Quality Evaluation System Based on Stacked Auto-Encoder

Air quality reflects the extent of air pollution, and it is evaluated based on the concentration of air pollutants. Air quality level is traditionally assessed by mathematical formula, which cannot precisely represent the level of air pollution in some circumstances. This paper introduces a novel Air Quality Evaluation system based on Stacked Auto-Encoder (named AQES-SAE) to tackle these problems. The data of air pollutant concentrations and the air quality index are collected and clustered with improved K-means algorithm. The labeled clusters as training samples are then transferred to a deep neural networks and trained on the SAE model, which can be used as the classifier in the air quality evaluation. The proposed method is compared with traditional mathematical formula, and it is verified that the AQES-SAE system is prior to the traditional method because it can identify air quality level more accurately and more reasonably.

Feature Selection Optimization Based on Atomic Set and Genetic Algorithm in Software Product Line

Software product line (SPL) engineering is an effective method to improve the software development process in terms of development costs and time-to-market by using comprehensive software reuse technology. The feature model is a demand model that describes the common and variability of software product family and the relationship between features in SPL engineering. The difficulty of product configuration based on the feature model is how to choose the optimal combination of features from the complex feature model to satisfy the constraints. In order to achieve the problem of constrained feature selection optimization, we propose a method based on atomic set and a genetic algorithm to optimize feature selection. Firstly, the feature model is optimized by using the atomic set algorithm. Then, the whole constraints of the model are modeled as the evaluation function of the effective and invalid configuration in the genetic algorithm. Finally, by the genetic operations of combining the effective configuration and the invalid configuration, such as crossover, selection and mutation, it selects the best effective configuration for output.

Product Configuration based on Feature Model

The approaches of product configuration based on feature are about how to select features from a feature model based on specific domain requirements and stakeholders’ goals. Although the literature on this topic has gained most importance in Academic and industrial fields, only little effort is dedicated to compare and analyze them. In order to address this shortcoming and to provide a basis for more structured research on feature modeling in the future, we first build a framework model to describe model structure, dependency management, automated support, configuration approaches and so on shared in the approaches family. Secondly, we understand and classify different configuration method based on the framework. Meanwhile we analyze the commonalities and variabilities among different approaches.

An Improved Multi-label Relief Feature Selection Algorithm for Unbalanced Datasets

RelieF algorithm is a series of feature selection methods, including the first proposed RelifF algorithm and later extended ReliefF algorithm. The core idea is to give greater weight to the features which have great contribution to the classification problem. The algorithm is simple and has high efficiency. However, it is not ideal to apply the Relief algorithm directly to unbalanced multi-label datasets. Based on the Relief algorithm, this paper proposes an improved multi-label ReliefF feature selection algorithm for unbalanced datasets, called UBML-ReliefF algorithm, which effectively eliminates the problem of datasets unbalance. Finally, we use the stroke cases to do experiments, and the experimental results show that the multi-label classification effect in UBML-ReliefF algorithm is better than the original ReliefF algorithm.

Area Topic Model

Location-based topic modeling is an emerging domain to capture topical trends over the area dimension, which makes it possible to conduct further analysis on the various preference of users in different areas, such as investigating users’ social opinion tendencies, generating personalized recommendation and so on. In this paper, we proposed a novel topic model called Area-LDA to discover the latent area-specific topic. Previous works which based on pre-discretized or post-hoc analysis of area topics had no ability to help generate topic for a document. Different from previous works, our model extends the original LDA by associating each document with area factor and introducing a new area distribution over topics into the model. Therefore, for each generated document, the distribution over topics is influenced by both word co-occurrences of the document and word co-occurrences of the corresponding area. We present the experimental analysis over the real-world dataset and the results demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed method to mine interpretable topic trends on different areas.

Using Supervised Machine Learning Algorithms to Screen Down Syndrome and Identify the Critical Protein Factors

Down syndrome (DS) is a genetic disorder caused by trisomy of all or part of the human chromosome 21. Since currently there is no cure for Down syndrome, the screening tests became the most efficient ways for DS prevention. Here, we used various supervised learning algorithms to build DS classification/screening models based on the protein/protein modification expression level of mice DS model Ts65Dn. Furthermore, we applied an adaptive boosted Decision Tree method to identify the most correlated and informative proteins factors that were associated with DS biological processes and pathways. Moreover, we improved the DS classification/screening models by using these selected DS related critical proteins. Finally, we used unsupervised learning algorithms to confirm the results we obtained above. These selected DS related proteins could be further used for protein-related and coding gene-related drugs developments.

Impact Analysis of Geometry Parameters of Buoy on the Pitching Motion Mechanism and Power Response for Multi-section Wave Energy Converter

This paper presents the motion characteristic and power response of a multi-section wave energy converter (WEC) consisting of two hinged cylindrical buoys and two power take-off (PTO) damping units at the joint according to a heaving and pitching motion model. The influences of geometry parameters of buoy (length, radius and draft) on the pitching motion and energy conversion ability are analyzed and summarized. The analysis results show that the relative pitching angle of two buoys depends on the pitching angles and the phase difference. The resonance frequency of pitching motion of buoy is mainly related to the radius and draft, but the phase difference generally depends on the length of buoy. The resonance of buoy and phase difference of odd multiples of 180° are necessary conditions for attaining maximum relative capture width.

Fractal feature can measure the complexity of radar signal. Radar signal is a kind of time series, which can be represented by fractal dimension. Wavelet transform is the signal processing microscope, which can observe the general situation and details of the signal and reduce the influence of noise. In this paper, the fractal characteristics of radar signals are extracted by combining the wavelet transform and fractal theory with the advantage of the two. Firstly, the wavelet transform is used to decompose the radar signals, and then the fractal dimension of radar signals under different decomposition levels is calculated. The radar signals with different complexity are obtained according to the difference of the fractal dimension. Finally, the validity of this method is verified by Matlab platform.

A Fast Connected Components Analysis Algorithm for Object Extraction

When the traditional connected components labeling algorithm is used to label the connected components, it is necessary to scan the image multiple times, resulting in unnecessary repetition. In addition, additional analysis is required to obtain the characteristic information of the connected components. Aiming at the above problems, this paper proposes a connected components labeling algorithm for one scan based on the idea of “linked list” and “Multi-tree”. It only needs one scan to complete the merging process of the connected components, and can get the connected components feature information. The experimental results show that the algorithm has strong anti-noise interference performance and fast processing speed, and can be applied to the actual target extraction.

Human Motion Monitoring Platform Based on Positional Relationship and Inertial Features

Human motion monitoring widely used in medical rehabilitation, health surveillance, video effects, virtual reality and natural human–computer interaction. Existing human motion monitoring can be divided into two ways, non-wearable and wearable. Non-wearable human motion monitoring system can be used when it is not contact with user, so it has no influence on users’ daily life, but its monitoring range is constrained. Wearable human motion monitoring system can solve this problem well. But as the dataset is not complete, it is inconvenient for the research of related algorithms, and many researchers choose to build their own data acquisition platform. On the other hand, the traditional motion recognition platform which is based on inertial features, is difficult to identify static pose. This limits the application of wearable motion recognition technology. In this paper, we design a human motion recognition platform based on inertial features and positional relationship, which can provide a platform for data acquisition and dataset for the researchers who study algorithm of wearable motion recognition.

Three-Order Computational Ghost Imaging and Its Inverse Algorithm

This paper mainly studies the characteristics of third-order computational GI whose imaging system is a single-arm system using a spatial light modulator (SLM) instead of a rotating ground glass in the classic GI system. To simplify the theoretical analysis of three-order computational GI, we assume that the two reference beams are equal and find that it is very similar to the theoretical results of the two-order GI. We analyze the impact of signal intensity fluctuation of three light beams on imaging. The numerical simulation shows that the intensity fluctuation of the light is the source of imaging information. We propose an inverse algorithm, which can improve the visibility of imaging effectively.

Real-time Dynamic Data Analysis Model Based on Wearable Smartband

Since the traditional annual physical fitness test for adolescents in schools lacks of real-time dynamic data collection and deep analysis, we propose a data analysis model mapping from raw dynamic data to physical fitness evaluation, based on a self-developed wearable smartband by which we collect dynamic data from middle school students in Beijing. Firstly, the model presents a preprocessing algorithm which consists of a smoothness priors approach (SPA) and a median filter (MF), aiming for preprocessing of both photo plethysmo graphy(PPG) signals and three-axis acceleration data collected from the wearable smartband. Secondly, the model implements physiological and physical index estimation to acquire heart rate (HR), blood oxygen saturation (SpO 2 ) and exercise amount estimates from the preprocessed data. Thirdly, the model extracts several key features closely related to physical fitness evaluation from the estimated HR, SpO 2 and acceleration data. Finally, a support vector machine (SVM) algorithm is employed for classification of physical fitness level of different smartband users. An application testing of our self-developed wearable smartband has been implemented in Tongzhou No. 6 middle school of Beijing. Experimental evaluation results demonstrate feasibility and effectiveness of both the smartband hardware/software and the proposed data analysis model.

A Survey on Microwave Surface Emissivity Retrieval Methods

Owing to its wide coverage and high observation density, remote sensing satellite microwave observation data has become the most data used in numerical weather prediction system. However, due to the influence of the uncertainty of the surface emissivity, most of the data collected from remote sensing satellites are the observations at higher-peaking channels over land. A large number of these observations at lower-peaking channels are discarded, so the accurate surface emissivity is the key of assimilation of remote-sensing satellite microwave observation data over land. This paper introduces several commonly retrieval methods used for passive microwave surface emissivity and discusses their advantages and shortcomings. At last, an evaluation of each retrieval method and a conclusion is made.

A New BDD Algorithm for Fault Tree Analysis

FTA is a NP-hard problem. When using the Binary Decision Diagram (BDD) to analyze a fault tree, the size of the BDD transformed by the fault tree increases as the number of basic events increases. When using the BDD method to analyze a large-scale fault tree, there is not enough memory to store the resulting BDD structure, and the process of obtaining the minimum cut set is time consuming. This paper introduces a simplified BDD (SimBDD) structure to solve these problems. SimBDD is a BDD whose scale linearly relates to the number of basic events in the fault tree. Therefore, when using this structure to deal with large fault tree, the structure is small and easy to store. The number of paths in SimBDD is small and the minimum cut set gets faster.

A New Weighted Decision Making Method for Accurate Sound Source Localization

Sound source localization is a challenging task in adverse environments with high reverberation and low signal-to-noise ratio. To accurately localize the source through classification methods, the number of sub-spaces for classification decision should be large. However, this also causes high misclassification rate, leading to larger localization error, especially in adverse environments. In this paper, we propose a new weighted decision making method (WDMM), which can effectively improve the localization accuracy of the likelihood based classification algorithms, by revisiting and accessing the probabilities of the adjacent sub-spaces. The synthetic experimental results have shown that the average mean and average standard deviation of the localization errors from the 20 different acoustic environments by the proposed WDMM are only 0.42 and 0.21 m respectively in a 4.0 m × 4.0 m × 4.0 m room. The 20 different acoustic environments include the high reverberation T60 up to 0.6 s and low signal-to-noise ratio to −10 dB. Compared to localization results without WDMM, the proposed method has reduced averages of mean and standard deviation localization errors by 35.8 and 55.2% respectively.

This paper deeply studies the point-to-point wireless energy transmission model in the cavity, analyzes the field and the energy loss energy of the transmission in the cavity. Based on the electromagnetic simulation software HFSS, the cavity simulation model is used to obtain the different influencing factors of energy transmission. The results show that the greater transmission efficiency and working bandwidth can be obtained when the transmitting and the receiving antenna are in the diagonal of the rectangular cavity when the TM220 wave is transmitted in the cavity. The longer the receiving antenna length is, the lower the transmission efficiency is. In addition, when the cavity size is larger and the resonant frequency is low, the loss is not great.

Personalized POI Recommendation Model in LBSNs

The development of location-based social networks (LBSNs) generates large volume of check-in data. Point-of-interest recommendation (POI) is important for users to find some attractive venues, sometimes when users are in some places far away from their living cities. However, POI recommendation is so difficult compared to the classical recommender system. Users may access only a small portion of POIs, with a sparse user-POI matrix. The bulk of the POIs accessed by users located in a near close to users’ residences, which leads it difficult to put in a good word for POIs when the user travels to a faraway region. Meanwhile, uses’ preferences may be different in various geographical regions. Different users may prefer to go to different venues at different time. From our paper, we present a novel model represented as probabilistic graphical model to describe users’ check-in behaviors, which can overcome the data sparsity for the users far away from their living cities. To demonstrate our proposed model can recommend effectively, we do experiments to calculate the precision. The results show our model can do recommendation effectively and efficiently.

A Dynamic Node’s Trust Level Detection Scheme for Intelligent Transportation System

As the basic unit of Intelligent Transportation System (ITS), Vehicular Ad Hoc Network (VANET) is responsible for transmitting traffic related messages between vehicle nodes, so it is important to ensure communication security of VANET. However, because of openness of wireless channels, self-organizing of network topology and mobility of vehicle nodes, detecting OBU’s trust level in real time traffic environments is very difficult. This paper presents a dynamic node’s trust level detection scheme, which is based on uncertain reasoning algorithm. Furthermore, the proposed scheme is integrated with asymmetric encryption to implement dynamic OBU’s identity authentication.

An Improved Memetic Algorithm with Novel Level Comparison for Constrained Optimization

Memetic algorithms combining with effective constraints handling techniques have been becoming the focus of concern as well as the subject of substantial research issue in decision-making in complex systems. As one of the most effective techniques for constraints handling, level comparison based method has been used to solve various constraint optimization problems. However, in most of the existing research, the constraint satisfaction level keeps constant or follows a fixed regulation during search, which may weaken the efficiency of relaxation of constraint violation. In this paper, we propose a TLBO based constrained optimization method, labeled as TLBO–LCSQP by incorporating a novel level comparison technique to effectively handle the constraints, and the sequential quadratic program (SQP) to enhance the searching performance. According to the simulation on a well-known constrained benchmark, the proposed TLBO–LCSQP could effectively enhance the constraints handling efficiency and greatly improve the searching ability.

In order to design quantum circuits for LNN, in this work, we propose a kind of synthesis algorithm based on the pre-evaluation of quantum circuits for LNN. Through pre-evaluation, not only can the algorithm accurately calculate if there are deletable redundant SWAP gates and remove them, but also convert every non-adjacent quantum gate to adjacent quantum gate, with inserting a minimal number of SWAP gates, and therefore get quantum circuits of minimal quantum cost (qc). As for quantum circuits of n lines and m quantum gates, the time and space complexity of the algorithm and optimized algorithm is O(m^3) and O(n^n+m), respectively. The results present that, with fewer average gates of quantum circuits and higher improvement efficiency of quantum cost, the algorithm has a wider range of application compared to the existing algorithm.

Influence of Liquid Film Thickness on Dynamic Property of Magnetic-Liquid Double Suspension Bearing

Due to the low viscosity of seawater, it is difficult to form the seawater-lubricated film, and the bearing capacity and stiffness of the seawater-lubricated film is very small. It is easily to cause the “overload” and “burning” phenomenon of the seawater-lubrication sliding bearing, and the operation stability and service life can be shorted. The magnetic bearing takes the bearing form of non-contact suspension, and it is more suitable as an auxiliary support to the seawater-lubrication sliding bearing. Therefore, the paper introduces the electromagnetic suspension support into the seawater-lubricated sliding bearing. And then a novel Magnetic-Liquid Double Suspension Bearing with the advantages of electromagnetic suspension and hydrostatic supporting can be formed. The structural characteristics, supporting mechanism, hydrostatic self-adjustment and electromagnetic-adjustment processes of Magnetic-Liquid Double Suspension Bearing can be analyzed in the paper. Based on force balance equation, electromagnetic equation and flow equation, the transfer function of different adjustment processes under constant-flow supply model are deduced. Then adjusting time, dynamic stiffness and phase margin are selected as dynamic indexes. The influence rule of the liquid film on capacity property of single degree freedom bearing system of Magnetic-Liquid Double Suspension Bearing can be analyzed. The results show that as liquid film thickness increases, dynamic stiffness decrease and adjusting time increase, and phase margin remain the same during the hydrostatic self-adjustment process. The proposed research provided a basis for the design of Magnetic-Liquid Double Suspension Bearing in the engineering practice.
