With the recent advances in the variational multiscale (VMS) methods, computational ow analysis in aerospace, energy, and transportation technologies has reached a high level of sophistication. It is bringing solutions in challenging problems such as the aerodynamics of parachutes, thermo-fluid analysis of ground vehicles and tires, and fluid-structure interaction (FSI) analysis of wind turbines. The computational challenges include complex geometries, moving boundaries and interfaces, FSI, turbulent flows, rotational flows, and large problem sizes. The Residual-Based VMS (RBVMS), Arbitrary Lagrangian-Eulerian VMS (ALE-VMS) and Space-Time VMS (ST-VMS) methods have been successfully serving as core methods in addressing the computational challenges. The core methods are supplemented with special methods targeting specific classes of problems, such as the Slip Interface (SI) method, MultiDomain Method, and the ST-C data compression method. We provide and overview of the core and special methods. We present, as examples of challenging computations performed with these methods, aerodynamic analysis of a ramair parachute, thermo-fluid analysis of a freight truck and its rear set of tires, and aerodynamic and FSI analysis of two back-to-back wind turbines in atmospheric boundary layer flow.

In this paper, the first issue presented and analyzed by several experiments is the influence of the distance between phosphor layers in the dual-layer and triple-layer remote package on luminous flux and color rendering property. During the simulation, it was realized that it was possible to create a suitable distance to create higher quality white light-emitting diodes (WLEDs) by adjusting the distance between the phosphor layers. According to the study results, 0.1 mm is the most reasonable distance between two phosphor layers so that the performance of the multi-chip white light LED (MCW LED) can get the best optimal effect. Through a series of experiments, it has been proved that the efficiency of the two-layer structure gives optical properties higher than the three-layer structure related to distance. The highest achievable lumen output is 0.6 mm for the triple-layer structure and 0.1 mm for dual-layer structure. Meanwhile, the color rendering index changes insignificantly when the distance increases. The triple-layer package is not practical for high-power white LEDs due to the high cost and low conversion efficiency. The dual-layer remote phosphor package with a 0.1 mm phosphorus gap is the optimal structure of WLED in improving luminous efficiency and color rendering index.

The ratchet mechanism has been used to ensure moving in one direction of rotation, i.e. either clockwise or counterclockwise. This mechanism is designed based on fixed-guided beam flexures to reduce friction and improves accuracy compared to the traditional mechanism. This paper presents a static analysis and parameter optimization for the fixed-guided beam flexures via using the pseudo-rigid-body model and a fmincon algorithm. The Finite Element Method (FEM) of the fixed-guided beam also has been used to verify the maximum stress and the x-direction displacement. Modified pseudorigid-body model (M-PRBM) is also applied to significantly enhance the accuracy of the maximum stress value. The results show that the averaged errors of maximum stress between MPRBM and FEM are 3.48% for aluminum, and less than 10.9% for titanium, carbon steel, and alloy steel. From the obtained results, the MPRBM is good for prototype design and fabrication of the ratchet mechanism in the future.

The whole world is now running after green energy. The utilization of energy is an indication of the growth of a nation. Maximum consumed energy comes from conventional energy sources like gas, oil, coal, etc. which are limited. It is difficult to meet up the demand with existing conventional energy resources. So, green energy or alternative energy can be the best way to meet increased demand today. Electricity can be produced from the speed breaker which is considered an alternative energy source of power generation. In our country, the speed breaker is about 10 cm in height. Thousands of vehicles run over the road every day which provides huge pressure on the road. A system could be developed to have about 10 cm defection with huge downward pressure energy which would be used to rotate wells turbines by using compressed air. The enormous study had been carried out to improve power generation from speed breaker by using the rack & pinion method and compressed air. But none of the studies is carried out by using wells turbines from compressed air. In our research, a small model has been constructed. From the experimental data, it is seen that an average 500 N Load can give an output of 1V voltage / 0.7A current / 1.71 kWh power.

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.
