Graphical Abstract
Effect of geotextile sewing method on dewatering performance of geotubes: an experimental study

Xiaolei Man, Ganggang Sha, Shuigen Hu, Guangying Liu, Wansheng Wang

Geotubes are made by sewing geotextiles together and geotextiles are woven with warp and weft threads of different mechanical properties. This research explores effect of geotextile sewing method on dewatering performance of geotubes using a hanging bag test. Two types of hanging bags are made by different geotextile sewing methods: horizontal bag with the warp threads along its circular direction and vertical bag with the warp threads along its axial direction. The test results show that the de ... Continue reading

Error correction and uncertainty measurement of short-open-load calibration standards on a new concept of software defined instrumentation for microwave network analysis

M. Nazrin, S. J. Hashim, F. Z. Rokhani, B. M. Ali, Z. Yusoff

Software-Defined Radio (SDR) has appeared as a sufficient framework for the development and testing of the measurement systems such as a signal generator, signal analyzer, and network analysis used in the network analyzer. However, most of researchers or scientists still rely on commercial analyzers were larger benchtop instruments, highly cost investment and minimum software intervention. In this paper, a new concepts measurement revolution called as Software Defined Instrumentation (SDI) on ne ... Continue reading

Application of fractal analysis methods to images obtained by crystallization modified by an additive

Natalia Ampilova, Igor Soloviev, Jean-Georges Barth

The fractal and multifractal methods are now widely used for analysis and classification of digital images having complex structure. We present the results of the application of such methods to the images of crystallograms obtained by crystallization with additives. This technique was developed for studying images of blood crystals, and now finds increasing use in the analysis of medicines, checking food and soil quality. In this work we study images of crystallograms of various milk dilutions a ... Continue reading

Reliability of vibration based tests for masonry compactness evaluation in sensitive case studies

Salvatore Russo

The reliability evaluation of vibration based (VB) tests in compactness evaluation of masonry bearing parts in sensitive case study as monuments and historic construction, is here proposed. The scientific aim is through a comparison between a lot of experimental data in situ relieved for different construction with different building age and level of conservation. In detail the investigation focuses on sonic device employed in direct and indirect way, whose use is very strategic in structural co ... Continue reading

Graphical Abstract
Masonry vaults strengthened with a GFRP reinforced mortar coating: evaluation of the resisting peak ground acceleration

Natalino Gattesco, Ingrid Boem

The reinforcement of existing masonry vaults against seismic actions is an extremely timing issue and it has already involved many researchers in experimental testing and numerical modelling. However, up to now, the results of the research have been expressed and compared in terms of load-displacement capacity curves. But the designers, in the practice, need to assess the resisting peak ground acceleration of the vault (PGA), so to compare it with the seismic demand. In the paper, a strategy to ...

A passive diffusion model of fluorescein derivatives in an in vitro human brain microvascular endothelial cell (HBMEC) monolayer

Jamelle M. Simmons, Yong Woo Lee, Luke Achenie

Eukaryotic cells have a protective plasma membrane, which restricts the free movement of molecules from the external environment to the internal environment. This study aims to computationally model the transport of fluorescein derivatives across the monolayer of human brain microvascular endothelial cells (HBMEC). The determination of plausible effective diffusion constants (Deff) will allow models to be built that could be useful beyond in vitro experimentation. Fluorescein-5-isothiocyanate (F ...

Numerical analysis and experiment on pressure of polished Z-tube with abrasive flow

Junye Li, Ningning Su, Wenqing Meng, Binyu Wang, Xinming Zhang

Aiming at the problem that the complex parts are difficult to process precisely, a flexible processing method, abrasive flow technology, is proposed. Based on the FLUENT software, a realizable k-ε model was adopted and a Z-tube was used as the research object for numerical analysis. Parameters such as turbulence intensity, turbulent kinetic energy, and flow field pressure under different inlet pressures were simulated and discussed. The simulation results show that with the increase of inlet pre ... Continue reading

New study on interactional effects of grouting pressure on the displacement of nailing bond

Pouyan Abbasi Maedeh, Wei Wu, Ali Ghanbari, Jia Lin, Marelianda Al Dianty, Kourosh Ghaffari Irdmoosa, Amir Shahraki Ghadimi

The maximum displacement in a soil nail bond system considering the pull-out, overburden load and grouting pressure effects has been evaluated. The Pull-out tests were carried out in five sites that located in Tehran, Iran. Moreover, additional pull-out test data from South Korea is considered. The displacement of the nailing system due to gravity and pressure grouting has been measured. Based on achieved data, four practical relationships between bound strength and pull-out displacements are de ... Continue reading
