The challenges encountered in computational analysis of wind turbines and turbomachinery include turbulent rotational flows, complex geometries, moving boundaries and interfaces, such as the rotor motion, and the fluid-structure interaction (FSI), such as the FSI between the wind turbine blade and the air. The Arbitrary Lagrangian-Eulerian (ALE) and Space-Time (ST) Variational Multiscale (VMS) methods and isogeometric discretization have been effective in addressing these challenges. The ALE-VMS and ST-VMS serve as core computational methods. They are supplemented with special methods like the Slip Interface (SI) method and ST Isogeometric Analysis with NURBS basis functions in time. We describe the core and special methods and present, as examples of challenging computations performed, computational analysis of horizontal and vertical-axis wind turbines and flow-driven

Complex industrial systems often contain various uncertainties. Hence sophisticated fuzzy optimization (metaheuristics) techniques have become commonplace; and are currently indispensable for effective design, maintenance and operations of such systems. Unfortunately, such state-of-the-art techniques suffer several drawbacks when applied to largescale problems. In line of improving the performance of metaheuristics in those, this work proposes the fuzzy random matrix theory (RMT) as an add-on to the cuckoo search (CS) technique for solving the fuzzy large-scale multiobjective (MO) optimization problem; biofuel supply chain. The fuzzy biofuel supply chain problem accounts for uncertainties resulting from fluctuations in the annual electricity generation output of the biomass power plant [kWh/year]. The details of these investigations are presented and analyzed.

In this paper, an enhanced active fault-tolerant control (FTC) is proposed to solve a current sensor failure in the induction motor drive (IMD) using two current sensors. The proposed FTC method applies only one observer to diagnose the faults and reconfigure the control signals by the space stator current. The diagnosis function is made up of a comparison algorithm between the measured current space vector and the estimated space vector. Then, incorrect feedback stator currents are replaced by the estimated values in the reconfiguration function. The amplitude of a healthy measured current is applied to adjusted the accuracy of estimated current signals. The IMD uses the field-oriented control (FOC) technique to control the speed and torque. The effectiveness in stabilizing the IMD system when a current sensor error occurs is verified by various simulations in the Matlab-Simulink environment

The motive of the investigation is analyzing the categorization of fetal state code from the Cardiographic data set based on decision tree method. Cardiotocography is one of the important tools for monitoring heart rate, and this technique is widely used worldwide. Cardiotocography is applied for diagnosing pregnancy and checking fetal heart rate state condition until before delivery. This classification is necessary to predict fetal heart rate situation which is belonging. In this paper, we are using three input attributes of training data set quoted by LB, AC, and FM to categorize as normal, suspect or pathological where NSPF variable is used as a response variable. After drawing necessary analysis into three variables we get the 19 nodes of classification tree and also we have measured every single node according to statistic, criterion, weights, and values. The Cardiotocography Dataset applied in this study is received from UCI Machine Learning Repository. The dataset contains 2126 observation instances with 22 attributes. In this experiment, the highest accuracy is 98.7%. Overall, the experimental results proved the viability of Classification and Regression Trees and its potential for further predictions.

This study proposed a triple-layer remote phosphor (TRP) structure to improve the color and luminous flux of white LEDs (WLEDs). TRP structure consists of 3 different phosphor layers: yellow YAG:Ce3+ layer below, red CaMgSi2O6:Eu2+,Mn2+ phosphor on top and green layer Ba2Li2Si2O7:Sn2+,Mn2+  phosphor in the middle. Using red CaMgSi2O6:Eu2+,Mn2+ to control the red light component leads to increased color rendering index (CRI). Utilize the green CaMgSi2O6:Eu2+,Mn2+ phosphor to control the green light component results in the increase in luminous efficacy (LE) of WLEDs. Furthermore, when the concentration of these two phosphors increased, yellow layer concentration YAG:Ce3+ decreased to maintain average correlated color temperatures (ACCTs) in the range from 6000 K-8500K. Besides CRI and LE, color quality scale (CQS) is also analyzed through concentration control of green phosphor and red phosphor. The research results show that the higher the concentration of CaMgSi2O6:Eu2+,Mn2+, the better for CRI. In contrast, CRI decreased significantly when increasing the concentration of Ba2Li2Si2O7:Sn2+,Mn2+. Meanwhile, CQS achieve notable enhancement in the concentration range of 10% -14% CaMgSi2O6:Eu2+,Mn2+, regardless of Ba2Li2Si2O7:Sn2+,Mn2+ concentration. LE, in particular, can also increase by more than 40% along with the improvement of CRI and CQS with the reduction of the backscattered light and addition of green light. Research results are a valuable reference for producers who wish to improve the color quality and enhance the luminous flux of WLEDs.

Modal kinetic energy (MKE) feature has been mostly employed for optimal sensor layout strategies; nevertheless, little attention is paid to use the feature to the field of structural damage detection. The article presents the extensive applicability of MKE change ratio (MKECR), a good damage sensitive parameter, to damage localization and quantification of laminated composite beams. The formulation of the parameter is based on the closed-form of element MKE sensitivity. The performance of the offered damage detection method is numerically verified by a clamped-clamped composite beam and a two-span continuous composite beam with different hypothetical damage scenarios. The influence of incomplete mode shapes, various noise levels as well as damage magnitudes on damage prediction results are also investigated. The obtained results from these numerical examples indicate that the offered method reliably localize the actually damaged elements and approximately estimate their severities, even under incomplete measurements at a high noise level.

Tax consulting service is one of various professional consulting services and is interested to study by many researchers. Nevertheless, this issue has not been interested to research in Vietnam. This paper performs confirmatory factors analysis (CFA) and structural equation modeling (SEM) to identify the factors influencing the intentions of using tax consulting services of firms in Ho Chi Minh city, Vietnam. Specifically, this paper finds that the intentions depend on the “attitude toward the behavior” and “replacement”. In addition, through Chi-square test, it can be proven that the intentions also depend on type of firms and whether they have ever used tax consulting service or not. Based on the obtained results, the discussion and recommendation are also proposed.

Comparing graph databases with traditional,e.g., relational databases, some important database features are often missing there. Particularly, a graph database schema including integrity constraints is mostly not explicitly defined, also a conceptual modelling is not used. It is hard to check a consistency of the graph database, because almost no integrity constraints are defined or only their very simple representatives can be specified. In the paper, we discuss these issues and present current possibilities and challenges in graph database modelling. We focus also on integrity constraints modelling and propose functional dependencies between entity types, which reminds modelling functional dependencies known from relational databases. We show a number of examples of often cited GDBMSs and their approach to database schemas and ICs specification. Also a conceptual level of a graph database design is considered. We propose a sufficient conceptual model based on a binary variant of the ER model and show its relationship to a graph database model, i.e. a mapping conceptual schemas to database schemas. An alternative based on the conceptual functions called attributes is presented.

III-nitride nanowire-based light-emitting diodes (LEDs) have been intensively studied as promising candidates for future lighting technologies. Compared to conventional GaN-based planar LEDs, III-nitride nanowire LEDs exhibit numerous advantages including greatly reduced dislocation densities, polarization fields, and quantum-conned Stark effect due to the effective lateral stress relaxation, promising high-efficiency full-color LEDs. Beside these advantages, however, several issues have been identified as the limiting factors for further enhancing the nanowire LED quantum efficiency and light output power. Some of the most probable causes have been identified as due to the lack of carrier confinement in the active region, non-uniform carrier distribution, electron overflow, and the nonradiative recombination along the nanowire lateral surfaces. Moreover, the presence of large surface states and defects contribute significantly to the carrier loss in nanowire LEDs. Consequently, reported nanowire LEDs show relatively low output power. Recently, III-nitride core-shell nanowire LED structures have been reported as the most efficient nanowire white LEDs with a record-high output power which is more than 500 times stronger than that of nanowire white LEDs without using core-shell structure. In this context, we will review the current status, challenges, and approaches for the high-performance IIInitride nanowire LEDs. More specifically, we will describe the current methods for the fabrication of nanowire structures including top-down and bottom-up approaches, followed by characteristics of III-nitride nanowire LEDs. We will then discuss the carrier dynamics and loss mechanism in nanowire LEDs. The typical designs for the enhanced performance of III-nitride nanowire LEDs will be presented next. The color-tunable nanowire LEDs with emission wavelengths in the visible spectrum and phosphor-free nanowire white LEDs will be finally discussed.

Enhancement of the color uniformity, the lumen output of the multi-chip white LED lamps (MCW-LEDs) at high color correlated temperature is a big challenge for researchers. However, an innovative LED lamp designed with a phosphor compounding, which combines (La,Ce,Tb) PO4:Ce:Tb (LaTb) green phosphor with YAG: CE yellow phosphor, is proposed as an optimal solution to this requirement. Index, using LaTb green phosphor into MCWLEDs could bring a superior optical performance for MCW-LEDs. It is found that the lumen output of this new MCW-LED at a high color temperature of 8500 K significantly improves up to 1600 lm compared to MCW-LEDs without LaTb phosphor. The simulation results demonstrated that the CCT deviation sharply decreases from 9000 to 1000 at the LaTb concentration range from 0 to 1.8 %, while the Color Rendering Index ability (CRI) and the Color Quality Scale (CQS) slightly decrease. To obtain the highest lumen output and the best color uniformity, the particle size range within 6 - 8 µm should be suggested.

In this paper, hidden bifurcation routes to multiscroll chaotic attractors generated by saturated function series are explored. The method to nd such hidden bifurcation routes (HBR) depending upon two parameters is similar to the method introduced by Menacer, et al. (2016) for Chua multiscroll attractors. These HBR are characterized by the maximal range extension (MARE) of their attractors and coding the appearance order of the scrolls under the control of the two parameters. Moreover, these HDR have interesting symmetries with respect to the two parameters. The novelty that this article introduces, is firstly the paradigm of MARE and the formula giving their approximate value depending upon parameters p and q, which is linked to the size of the scrolls; secondly the coding of the HBR which is dened for the first time including the basic cell; and thirdly unearthing the symmetries of these routes, allowing to obtain their coding without any numerical computation.
