Pull-out experiments were performed on four carbon fiber-reinforced polymer (CFRP) ground anchors simulating their applications in rock and soil. The CFRP tendons used in these anchors comprise a single-strap end on both the ground and air sides. On the ground side, the single-strap end is embedded in a cylinder of high-strength grout which fits into the(More)
In practice, stable Cd isotope ratios are being applied to trace pollution sources in the natural environment. However, Cd isotope fractionation during weathering processes is not yet fully understood. We investigated Cd isotope fractionation of PbZn ore in leaching experiments and in the environment under natural weathering processes. Our leaching(More)
Pull-out experiments were performed on three carbon fiber-reinforced polymer (CFRP) ground anchors simulating their applications in different rock types which provided different confinement levels. The CFRP tendons comprised, on the ground side, a prefabricated conical anchor body of high-strength grout in which two CFRP straps were embedded. The anchors(More)
In order to deal with the uncertainty of evidences mostly existing in pineapple disease identification system, a reasoning model based on evidence credibility factor was established. The uncertainty reasoning method is discussed, including: uncertain representation of knowledge, uncertain representation of rules, uncertain representation of multi-evidences(More)
Lead-zinc deposits are often difficult to classify because clear criteria are lacking. In recent years, new tools, such as Cd and Zn isotopes, have been used to better understand the ore-formation processes and to classify Pb-Zn deposits. Herein, we investigate Cd concentrations, Cd isotope systematics and Zn/Cd ratios in sphalerite from nine Pb-Zn deposits(More)
