    River water injecting into sea: Movement of sediments in stable stratified flows

    The study of sediment movement in a stably stratified (each layer is less dense than the one below it) fluid is important for applications such as airborne virus transport, contaminant transport, and sediment settling in river inlets. This project will quantify the effect of sediment-driven instability on the horizontal motion of sediment in a stably stratified fluid. Experiments are designed to analyze this process by adding sediment-rich brine-free water to sediment-free brine, where salinity differences are used to construct stably stratified fluids. The experiments are done with salinity same as salty water with concentration of sediments derived from linear stability analysis. This work provide baseline experiments for sediment settling in a stably stratified fluids for numerical validations in the future.

    Capturing the 3D secrets of a flickering candle: Based on digital holographic microscopy

    The temperature distribution of flames has long been a fascinating topic of study. To quantitatively analyze the temperature field of flames, traditional methods include infrared devices, thermocouples and thermometer. However, these conventional techniques provide only cross-sectional snapshots while lacking the capability to offer real-time 3D temperature field visualization. This paper proposed a different approach to measure the 3D temperature field with accurate data and details by applying the digital holography. First, based on digital holography and the equations of thermodynamics, we derived the equation between the phase difference and temperature. Then we built a transmission off-axis digital holographic microscopy in the experimental section to perform static and dynamic flame measurements. To calibrate the actual temperatures and test our theory’s accuracy, we also took photographs of the flames as a standard reference using an infrared thermal imager. Finally, we obtained a quantitative 3D distribution of the temperature field and a qualitative dynamic process of 3D temperature field. Our results show that the temperature decreases from the center of the flame and follows a general pattern. The comparison with infrared imaging shows that digital holography offers an accurate measurement of the temperature.

    Investigation on angle of incidence and light reflectance

    Illuminance is a measurement proportional to the intensity of light. When light is incident on a surface, the angle it makes with the normal vector of the surface plane is the angle of incidence. This paper focuses on an investigation of the relationship between the illuminance of reflected light from a glass block and the angle of incidence of the light on the block. By applying Fresnel’s coefficients, an expression for the illuminance of reflected light is derived in terms of the angle of incidence. The controlled measurements, including the illuminance of s-polarized and p-polarized light of a green laser (532nm), are directly measured to arrive at a set of calculated reflected illuminance at 10 different angles of incidence. The reflected illuminance is also experimentally measured with a light sensor at these angles. Upon the comparison between the two sets of data in this paper, a close resemblance of the shape of their curves is observed, both revealing an increasing reflected illuminance with a growing rate with respect to the increase of the angle of incidence. However, due to some expected systematic errors in the experiment, the calculated data has a generally higher reflected illuminance than the theoretical data at each angle of incidence. Overall, it is confirmed that as the angle of incidence increases, the illuminance of the reflected light increases with a growing rate.

    An enhancement methodology for predicting transaction amounts for freelancers on freelance platforms: Based on sentiment analysis

    Freelancing is a type of labor arrangement in which independent freelancers use their discretionary time to perform ad hoc tasks, usually of a single nature, with the aim of getting paid. This study proposes an augmented method for predicting the amount of freelance transactions using textual sentiment analysis. First, a unique feature labeled “Freelancer Sentiment” was selected to summarize the positive or negative sentiment orientation of freelancers. Subsequently, Naive Bayes algorithm is applied to process the text data from the freelancer’s platform to finally develop a “Model for Computing Word Sentiment Values”. The model helps to accurately calculate the sentiment values associated with emotional words. Finally, the Word Frequency-Inverse Document Frequency (TF-IDF) algorithm is used to construct the Text Sentiment Value Calculation Model, so as to accurately calculate the sentiment values of freelancers. The results of the comparison experiments of the five commonly used prediction models show that the mean squared error (MSE) of the model that includes the “freelancer sentiment” feature is significantly reduced by 6%-11% compared with the model that does not include the “freelancer sentiment” feature. This study contains theoretical explorations and practical implications. First, the proposed approach of extracting features from textual data to build predictive models provides a valuable reference for future enhancement of predictive modeling on freelance platforms, especially those that rely on unstructured data. Second, incorporating textual sentiment value features relevant to freelancers can significantly improve the accuracy of predicting transaction amounts. Third, the calculation of word and text sentiment values employs a series of algorithms that target specific features of the freelancer platform’s text data. This approach is important for improving the accuracy of feature value calculation.

    FT_HTlist: A fault-tolerant frequent itemset mining algorithm based on the linear table

    This paper proposes a fault-tolerant frequent itemset mining algorithm (FT_HTlist) based on the linear table when the fault-tolerance is 1. The algorithm uses the method of concatenating 1 in the highest bit of the binary number of the known fault-tolerant frequent patterns to generate the candidate fault_tolerant patterns, called FT_Candidate. The algorithm is based on the data structure of the linear table for fault-tolerant frequent itemset mining. This method does not need recursion, so it reduces the consumption of mining space. At the same time, the paper proposed a deduplication algorithm to remove the support for repeat calculations. So the algorithm has a strong advantage in spatial performance. In addition, the algorithm only needs to mine two horizontal chains of the FT_Candidate, thus reducing the consumption of mining time. Finally, the paper shows the time performance and space performance of the proposed algorithm under sparse datasets and dense datasets. The results show that our algorithm has better mining time than other algorithms, and the horizontal chain reduces the memory occupation of the algorithm.

    Research on the blockage effect in a shock tube

    The shock tube is a crucial experimental apparatus in the field of explosive impact. Limited research has been conducted on the visualization of the internal flow field in shock tubes under blockage conditions, and there is a lack of comprehensive understanding of the mechanisms behind blockage effects. This paper presents experimental and numerical investigations into the propagation of shock waves inside a shock tube and their interaction with obstructive elements. Blockage effect experiments were conducted on a shock tube test platform, where pressure data were obtained through a pressure monitoring system. Additionally, schlieren imaging technology was employed to visualize the evolution of shock wave fronts. A two-dimensional numerical model of the shock tube was established using Fluent software, and the computed results exhibited excellent agreement with the experimental data, confirming the accuracy of the numerical model. The mechanism of the blockage effect was revealed through analysis of pressure-time curves and images depicting the evolution of shock wave fronts. Furthermore, adjustments to parameters on the validated numerical model allowed for analysis and comparison of different blockage ratios. The results indicate that the disturbance to the flow field caused by the blockage effect is primarily due to the reflection of shock waves between the front surface of the obstructive element and the shock tube wall. This reflection leads to differences in pressure curves compared to free-field conditions, and such differences increase with higher blockage ratios.

    Variable magnification beam expander system based on semiconductor laser

    Due to the different divergence angles in two perpendicular directions and the presence of astigmatism in edge-emitting semiconductor lasers, the communication distance and efficiency of underwater communication are seriously affected. Therefore, based on the fact that the semiconductor laser beam belongs to Gaussian beam, satisfying Gaussian characteristics and collimating and expanding characteristics, a system composed of fast-axis collimation mirror and variable magnification beam expander is designed. Simulation is performed, and the final divergence angle is calculated. Experimental results show that the divergence angles of the fast axis and the slow axis have been compressed from 49° and 9°, respectively, to 0.315 mrad and 0.180 mrad. Simulation demonstrates that the system can achieve propagation over a distance of 100m underwater and solve the alignment difficulty of APT. The designed structure is compact, easy for processing and adjustment, with high practical value, which helps to solve the problems of optical energy loss and low coupling efficiency in underwater long-distance communication.

    European Option Pricing Based on FSDE Driven by Fractional Brownian Motion

    In the actual financial market, the classical Black-Scholes (B-S) model can’t perfectly describe the process of stock price. Besides, memory effect is an important phenomenon in financial systems. Thus, in this paper, we establish a fractional order stochastic differential equations (FSDE) which is driven by fractional Brownian motion (fBm) to describe the effect of noise memory and trend memory in financial pricing. Finally, we derive a European option pricing formula based on the established model. After conducting an empirical analysis based on the SSE 50ETF, we find that the established model performs better than the traditional one.

    Layout optimization scheme for coexistence of multiple coverage capabilities in base stations—Based on genetic algorithm

    With the development of 5G technology, communication networks have become increasingly complex, leading to a continuous growth in the number of base stations. While this has resulted in faster speeds, lower latency, and greater capacity, it has also presented a pressing issue: weak coverage points, areas with weak signal radiation from base stations. To address this challenge, this paper proposes a layout optimization scheme for the coexistence of base stations with multiple coverage capabilities, based on a genetic algorithm. The scheme considers the rational deployment of various types of base stations (represented as macro base stations and micro base stations in the paper) to improve the situation of weak coverage points. The specific steps of the optimization layout scheme include initializing existing base station coverage, calculating distances to weak coverage points, selecting new base station locations, updating data, and analyzing calculations. The final output includes the coordinates and types of new base stations needed. Through model simulation, the proposed optimization layout scheme can consider cost, coverage effectiveness, and threshold constraints while accommodating various requirements. Additionally, the scheme is highly applicable and can be integrated with computer analysis software. Finally, a dialectical analysis of the model is conducted, recognizing the flexibility and practicality advantages of the layout optimization scheme based on genetic algorithms, while acknowledging potential limitations such as overly idealistic assumptions.

    The effects of sub-central development on the economic growth of provincial capitals: A study based on the DID and PSO-RF models

    As a core component in deepening reforms and expanding the strategy of dual circulation development, the importance of developing sub-centers for the economic growth of provincial capitals is self-evident. This paper, based on panel data from 300 prefecture-level cities in China from 1998 to 2020, constructs a progressive double-difference (DID) model to assess the impact of sub-central development on the economic growth of provincial capitals. The research reveals that the development of sub-centers at the provincial level significantly promotes the economic growth of provincial capitals. Moreover, the policies of sub-center cities have a more pronounced stimulating effect on the economic growth of provincial capitals in the central and western regions. Additionally, the more sub-center cities there are, the more apparent the effect on promoting the economic growth of provincial capitals. Subsequently, this paper employs the Particle Swarm Optimization - Random Forest (PSO-RF) model through machine learning to validate the above conclusions, confirming the validity of the findings.
