An attack strength degradation model has been introduced to further capture the interdependencies among infrastructures and model cascading failures across infrastructures when terrorist attacks occur. A medium-sized energy system including oil network and power network is selected for exploring the vulnerabilities from independent networks to(More)
A broad attention has been paid to the field ditches as the sewage interception channel for the agricultural nonpoint source pollution, however, rare studies have involved in the phosphorus migration and transformation between the ditch sediments and overlaying water, especially, from the ditch sediments to the water. The present paper aims to explore with(More)
Article history: Received: 27.6.2015. Received in revised form: 26.11.2015. Accepted: 1.12.2015. This paper presents experimental and numerical study with the objective of exploring the effect of suction control on vortex-induced vibration (VIV) of a bridge deck. The vertical and torsional responses of the model with or without suction control during this(More)
The cumulative data by Bridge Management System (BMS) is helpful for decision making for bridge maintenance measure. According to the current state of municipal bridges, the design of system development of Sihui BMS (SH-BMS) is discussed in this paper. The network design based on Browser/Server (B/S) paradigm is presented and major operational functions(More)
Type 1 diabetes (T1D) is an autoimmune disease characterized by a selective destruction of insulin-secreting β-cells. Both T cells and B cells serve a crucial role in pathogenesis and development of T1D. CD20 is a specific membrane antigen of B lymphocytes, while interleukin (IL)‑10 is an important cytokine secreted by T helper 2 cells and has a short(More)
The intelligent technique is becoming the most important and powerful aided tool to manage the infrastructure information and reduce the urban natural hazards. This paper presents the development in building the smart digital China programs and the application of the digital technique to mitigate natural hazard in Chinese cities. The digital techniques in(More)
