Simulation of traffic flow is an effective tool for traffic system management, control and optimization, particularly in congested urban areas. TESS is an object oriented traffic simulation model with detailed representation of vehicles and their interactions. This paper presents the TESS simulator including the car-following model and new lane-changing(More)
X-ray coronary angiography (CAG) is one of widely used imaging modalities for diagnosis and interventional treatment of cardiovascular diseases. Dynamic CAG sequences acquired from several viewpoints record coronary arterial morphological information as well as dynamic performances. The aim of this work is to propose a semi-automatic method for sequentially(More)
This paper presents how an optimal optimization method, Genetic Algorithm (GA), is applied for finding a suitable combination of VISSIM parameters. The North-South (N-S) Expressway is investigated and simulated in VISSIM platform using field data obtained from Traffic Information Collecting System (TICS) in Shanghai. Numerous simulation tests indicate that(More)
BACKGROUND Total glucosides of paeony (TGP) is a biologically active compound extracted from Paeony root. TGP has been used in rheumatoid arthritis therapy for many years. However, the mechanism by which TGP prevents bone loss has been less explored. METHODS TGP was orally administered for 3 months to New Zealand rabbits with antigen-induced arthritis(More)
We study the top transmission grating's improvement on GaN LED light extraction efficiency. We use the finite difference time domain (FDTD) method, a computational electromagnetic solution to Maxwell's equations, to measure light extraction efficiency improvements of the various grating structures. Also, since FDTD can freely define materials for any layer(More)
Proteolipid protein 2 (PLP2) has been shown to be upregulated in several cancers, including breast cancer, hepatocellular carcinoma, osteosarcoma, and melanoma. PLP2 specifically binds to phosphatidylinositol 3 kinase to activate the protein kinase B pathway to enhance cell proliferation, adhesion, and invasion in melanoma cells. Therefore, we speculated(More)
Full face rock tunnel boring machine is one of the main machineries and equipments for underground engineering, and the failure of its disc cutter is the main failure form of this machinery. In order to find out the factors of wear of disc cutters and improve the rock breaking efficiency, a lot of research has been done. In this paper, the methods of(More)
We propose to measure the electroproduction of J/Ψ meson cross section off a proton near threshold (4.05 GeV < W < 4.45 GeV and |t − t min | < 2.5 GeV 2) with an 11 GeV electron beam. The high luminosity JLab 12 GeV upgrade electron beam combined with the large acceptance device SoLID in Hall A allow for a fully exclusive measurement of this process near(More)
