Tree species composition of a seasonal rain forest in Xishuangbanna, Southwest China
Tree species composition, stratification features and abundance distribution of a tropical seasonal rain forest in Xishuangbanna, SW China were surveyed on the basis of the data collected from aExpand
Evaluation of competition and light estimation indices for predicting diameter growth in mature boreal mixed forests
Determining separate competition indices for each competitor species accounted for more variation than ignoring species or classifying by ecological groups, and the overall impact of competition on mature trees in these forests appears to be small. Expand
Friction Stir Spot Welding of Advanced High-Strength Steels - A Feasibility Study
An exploratory study was conducted to investigate the feasibility of friction stir spot welding advanced high-strength steel sheet metals. The fixed pin approach was used to weld 600MPa dual phaseExpand
16S rRNA gene analyses of bacterial community structures in the soils of evergreen broad-leaved forests in south-west China.
The data reveal that Acidobacteria dominate soil bacterial communities in the evergreen broad-leaved forests studied here and suggest that bacterial diversity may be influenced by soil carbon and nutrient levels, but is not related to floristic richness along the climatic gradient from subtropical to tropical forests in south-west China.

Forest structure and biomass of a tropical seasonal rain forest in Xishuangbanna, Southwest China
Xishuangbanna is a region located at the northern edge of tropical Asia. Biomass estimates of its tropical rain forest have not been published in English literature. We estimated forest biomass andExpand
Welding and weldability of candidate ferritic alloys for future advanced ultrasupercritical fossil power plants
Abstract Fossil fuels continue to be the primary source of energy in the world. The worldwide demand for clean and affordable energy will continue to grow, and a strong emphasis has been placed onExpand
Modelling of residual stresses and property distributions in friction stir welds of aluminium alloy 6061-T6
Abstract An integrated thermal–metallurgical–mechanical model is used to analyse and provide insights into the formation of the residual stress and the changes in microstructure and property ofExpand
Thermo-Mechanical Modeling of Friction Stir Spot Welding (FSSW) Process: Use of an Explicit Adaptive Meshing Scheme
This paper presents on-going finite element modeling efforts of friction stir spot welding (FSSW) process by an explicit finite element code. Adaptive meshing and advection schemes, which makes itExpand
