A New Continuous Optimization Method for Mixed Integer Space Travelling Salesman Problem [article]

Liqiang Hou, Shufan Wu, Zhongcheng Mu, Meilin Liu
2021 arXiv   pre-print
The travelling salesman problem (TSP) of space trajectory design is complicated by its complex structure design space. The graph based tree search and stochastic seeding combinatorial approaches are commonly employed to tackle the time-dependent TSP due to their combinatorial nature. In this paper, a new continuous optimization strategy for the mixed integer combinatorial problem is proposed. The space trajectory combinatorial problem is tackled using continuous gradient based method. A

Expected flyby targets are introduced as references and used as priori to select the candidate target to fly by. Bayesian based analysis is employed to model accumulated posterior of the sequence and a new objective function with quadratic form constraints is constructed. The new introduced auxiliary design variables of expected targets together with the original design variables are set to be optimized. A gradient based optimizer is used to search optimal sequence parameter. Performances of the proposed algorithm are demonstrated through a multiple debris rendezvous problem and a static TSP benchmark.

Investigations into the Role of Friction for Rigid Penetration into Concrete-Like Material Targets

Ningjing Jiang, Shufan Wu, Yile Hu, Zhongcheng Mu, Xiaofeng Wu, Wei Zhang
2020 Materials  
Currently, it appears that there is a lack of understanding related to the role of SSF, in the two-phase behavior of the deceleration history, which is an issue discussed recently in the impact dynamics field. This paper analytically and numerically focuses on the effect of SSF on the projectile deceleration characteristic of concrete-like targets. Firstly, the penetration process according to the two-phase feature of the projectile deceleration is revised, where analytical results indicate
more » ... the SSF has a phased feature corresponding to the two-phase behavior of the deceleration history. Furthermore, a series of numerical simulations are conducted to understand the role of SSF more clearly. Simulation results show a similar conclusion to the analyses of the two-phase penetration process; at the range below a certain critical striking velocity, adding friction can reproduce the experimental data; when exceeding the critical striking velocity, the simulated results without considering friction are closest to the experimental data. Hence, it could be gained that the role exchange between the SSF and the dynamic term contributes to the two-phase penetration behavior for concrete-like materials. This indicates that the sensitivity of SSF to the penetration process is one of the factors driving the two-phase feature.

Meanwhile, the method proposed in this paper also effectively improves the accuracy of classifying the presence or absence of tumor. For the brain MR dataset, our method can achieve the average accuracy of 99.18% under ten-fold cross-validation for identifying the presence or absence of tumor, and 83.38% for classifying the source of tumor. Experimental results show that our method is consistent with the method of medical experts. It can assist doctors in achieving efficient clinical diagnosis of brain tumors.

Secondly, according to the key technical requirements, a brand-new structure of a satellite generating artificial magnetic field is designed accordingly. Then the control mechanism of eddy current brake and traction without propellant is analyzed qualitatively by simplifying the model and conditions. Then, the magnetic pulse control method is proposed and analyzed quantitatively. Finally, the feasibility of the technology is verified by the numerical simulation method. According to the simulation results, the eddy current brake and traction technology based on magnetic pulses can make the angular speed of target decrease linearly without propellant during the process. This technology has huge advantages compared with conventional eddy current brake technology in terms of efficiency and reduced propellant consumption.

Based on the PMMA porous array templates, the Cu nanowires were successfully prepared by electrochemical deposition. Moreover, to fabricate PMMA ultra-long micro/nanowires, the composite fibers with converse shell/core component of PS/PMMA were initially prepared, and then the outer PS was dissolved. The obtained PMMA micro/nanowires were characterized with smooth complete orientation structure. The study provides an experimental basis for fabricating such polymer composite fibers, micro/nano porous array templates, and micro/nanowires with precise and controllable manner to meet the real application requirements.

2019 Energy Procedia  
District heating networks are commonly addressed in the literature as one of the most effective solutions for decreasing the greenhouse gas emissions from the building sector. These systems require high investments which are returned through the heat sales. Due to the changed climate conditions and building renovation policies, heat demand in the future could decrease, prolonging the investment return period. The main scope of this paper is to assess the feasibility of using the heat demand

The district is consisted of 665 buildings that vary in both construction period and typology. Three weather scenarios (low, medium, high) and three district renovation scenarios were developed (shallow, intermediate, deep). To estimate the error, obtained heat demand values were compared with results from a dynamic heat demand model, previously developed and validated by the authors. The results showed that when only weather change is considered, the margin of error could be acceptable for some applications (the error in annual demand was lower than 20% for all weather scenarios considered). However, after introducing renovation scenarios, the error value increased up to 59.5% (depending on the weather and renovation scenarios combination considered). The value of slope coefficient increased on average within the range of 3.8% up to 8% per decade, that corresponds to the decrease in the number of heating hours of 22-139h during the heating season (depending on the combination of weather and renovation scenarios considered). On the other hand, function intercept increased for 7.8-12.7% per decade (depending on the coupled scenarios). The values suggested could be used to modify the function parameters for the scenarios considered, and improve the accuracy of heat demand estimations. Abstract The alternative materials to remove Hg 0 from energy utilization sectors is crucial to mercury control in atmosphere. CeO2 based catalysts were prepared by an incipient wetness impregnation (IWI) method. A novel Hg 0 and Hg T temperature-programmed surface reaction (Hg 0 -Hg T -TPSR) was proposed in this study for the investigation of the prepared CeO2 based catalysts with the qualitative and quantitative analyses. The characteristic temperatures, the areas of adsorption region and desorption region, and activation energy with reaction kinetics were investigated to evaluate the performance. It was found that 2wt% Ce catalyst has the best mercury removal performance with the highest Hg 0 removal ability and the lowest Ea. There was also small amount of Hg 2+ detected which indicated the catalytic effect contributed. The results suggested that 2wt% Ce based binary catalysts could be the potential candidates to be investigated in the future study.

Shufan Huang, Yongpeng Wu, Siyuan Gao
2021 arXiv   pre-print
High demands for industrial networks lead to increasingly large sensor networks. However, the complexity of networks and demands for accurate data require better stability and communication quality. Conventional clustering methods for ad-hoc networks are based on topology and connectivity, leading to unstable clustering results and low communication quality. In this paper, we focus on two situations: time-evolving networks, and multi-channel ad-hoc networks. We model ad-hoc networks as graphs

By using similarity or human-in-the-loop measures, we construct a new weighted graph for final clustering. In multi-channel networks, we perform allocations from the results of multiplex community detection. Experiments on real-world datasets show that our method outperforms baselines in both stability and quality.

2011 Cognitive Neurodynamics  
Recent neuropsychological research has begun to reveal that neurons encode information in the timing of spikes. Spiking neural network simulations are a flexible and powerful method for investigating the behaviour of neuronal systems. Simulation of the spiking neural networks in software is unable to rapidly generate output spikes in large-scale of neural network. An alternative approach, hardware implementation of such system, provides the possibility to generate independent spikes precisely

We introduce a configurable FPGA-oriented hardware platform for spiking neural network simulation in this work. We aim to use this platform to combine the speed of dedicated hardware with the programmability of software so that it might allow neuroscientists to put together sophisticated computation experiments of their own model. A feed-forward hierarchy network is developed as a case study to describe the operation of biological neural systems (such as orientation selectivity of visual cortex) and computational models of such systems. This model demonstrates how a feed-forward neural network constructs the circuitry required for orientation selectivity and provides platform for reaching a deeper understanding of the primate visual system. In the future, larger scale models based on this framework can be used to replicate the actual architecture in visual cortex, leading to more detailed predictions and insights into visual perception phenomenon.
