1,3-Propanediol has wide applications for large volume markets, particularly in the polymer business. Microbial production of 1,3-propanediol has been considered as a competitor to the traditional petrochemical routes. However, the formation of 1,3-propanediol is limited by the amount of NADH supplied by the oxidative pathway of glycerol dismutation.(More)

Ideally, the origin of the Terrestrial Reference Frame (TRF) is defined as the center of mass of the whole Earth system, the time evolution of its orientation is such that no global net rotation of the whole Earth's surface is possible and the TRF scale is specified through the adoption of some physical constants and timescale. These parameters need to be(More)
Digital photography is a promised method for estimating the fractal characteristics of leaf veins. In this study, the effects of different threshold levels and image processing methods using Adobe Photoshop software on the fractal dimension values were examined from a digital photo of nectarine leaf. The results showed that the nectarine leaf vein has(More)
The Energetic and Exergetic performances evaluating models were built for a agricultural greenhouse cooling with groundwater-style GSHP system (GSHPs) in Northern China. The Exergy destruction (Ex dest), Exergy efficiency(ε) and coefficient of performance (COP) were estimated and presented based on summer cooling test monitored data and the simulation(More)
Fluent, as one of the commercial CFD packages, the author discussed its application in greenhouse ventilation research. In the paper, the under problems would be expounded: in fluent what models will be used in greenhouse studying, and the details during in these models used, and the comparing of the same style models. The steps to solve the greenhouse(More)
A model of heat transfer through greenhouse covering materials was developed in this study. The influences of the thermal properties of covering materials, the construct parameters of greenhouse and the environment inner and outer of greenhouse were completely considered in the model. Heat transfer flux density through covering layer can be simulated and(More)
Equations were derived based on the principles of light reflection to optimize the height and angle parameters of the reflective board in real time and location. The optimized parameters were applied to enhance the light intensity inside the lean-to greenhouses in China. The calculated results were significantly correlated to the actual measurements.(More)
