Roles of cottony hairs in directed seed dispersal in riparian willows
Willows usually establish on wet substrates with fine sediments at sites that are created by large disturbances, but suitable microsites are spatially and temporally limited. Thus, we hypothesizedExpand

Grain size effect on high-temperature fatigue properties of alloy718
Abstract High-temperature fatigue properties of Alloy718 with different grain sizes were investigated. For the coarse-grain alloy, the fatigue strength notably decreased beyond 105 cycles. TheExpand
