A good mesh moving method is an important part of flow computations with moving-mesh methods like the space–time (ST) and Arbitrary Lagrangian–Eulerian (ALE) methods. With a good mesh moving method, we can decrease the remeshing frequency even when the fluid–solid and fluid–fluid interfaces undergo large displacements, decrease the element distortion in parts of the flow domain where we care about the solution accuracy more, and maintain the quality of the boundary layer meshes near the fluid–solid interfaces as the mesh moves to follow those interfaces. Since 1990, quite a few good mesh moving methods have been developed for use with the ST computational methods, from the mesh Jacobian-based stiffening to a mesh moving method based on fiber-reinforced hyperelasticity to a linear-elasticity mesh moving method with no cycle-to-cycle accumulated distortion. These methods have been used in computation of many complex flow problems in the categories of fluid–particle interaction, fluid–structure interaction, and more generally, moving boundaries and interfaces. The computations were with both the ST and ALE methods. We provide an overview of these methods and present examples of the computations performed.

The remote phosphor structure is proven to be better than other structures of conformal or in-cup phosphor in terms of luminous efciency. Nevertheless, its color rendering ability is unstable and difficult to manage at high correlated color temperature (CCT). Hence, improving the color management at high CCT for remote structures is essential. This study will present the triple-layer structures using the yellow phosphor YAG:Ce3+, the red YVO4:Eu3+ and green YF3:Mn2+ phosphors to achieve that control over the color and luminous properties of WLED packages. The results of the triple-layer structure are compared with those of the conventional remote phosphor structure (single-layer). The experiments performed on these two structures with the CCT range of 5600–8500 K. The findings in the study show that the triple-layer is more benefcial to the color rendering metric, color quality scale, and also the lumen output, especially at high color temperatures such as 8500 K, compared to the conventional one. Moreover, the higher color uniformity is accomplished with the triple-layer structure as the color deviation in this structure is much smaller than in the single-layer. Thus, the triple-layer structure can be applied as a replacement to the single-layer to attain better control of the color quality and luminous flux for high-CCT WLEDs.

In this paper, a novel single phase second order sliding mode controller (SPSOSMC) is proposed for the mismatched uncertain systems with extended disturbances and unknown time-varying delays. The main achievements of this study consist of three tasks: 1) a reaching phase in conventional sliding mode control (CSMC) technique is removed to ensure the global stability of the system; 2) an influence of the undesired high-frequency oscillation phenomenon in control input is vanished; 3) an exogenous perturbation is generally extended to the k-order disturbance of state variable. Firstly, a single phase switching manifold function is defined to eliminate the reaching phase in CSMC. Secondly, an unmeasurable state variable is estimated by using the proposed reduced-order sliding mode observer (ROSMO) tool. Next, a SPSOSMC is built based on the help of ROSMO tool and output information only. Then, a sufficient condition is established by employing the linear matrix inequality (LMI) technique and Lyapunov function theory such that the resulting sliding mode dynamics is asymptotically stable. Finally, a numerical example is simulated via the well-known MATLAB software to validate the effectiveness of the proposed technique.

The reverse supply chain (RSC) recently attracted many Vietnamese authorities, enterprises and academia owing to the rise of concern on the environment and regulations of waste process. Along with rapid development, Vietnamese manufacturing network has become tightly strained when the end-of-life (EOL) items are not taken back by their manufacturers but end up being processed disorderly in different local businesses. A distressing example is the waste of imported solar panels in Vietnam. Since the number of solar panels has grown steadily in Vietnam recently, we speculate that the network flows of EOL solar panel of Vietnam will be very large and complex in a few years. In order to help Vietnamese government establish efficiently RSC, our paper will apply the mixed-integer linear programming (MILP) and demonstrate an optimized solution for the RSC of EOL solar panel in Ho Chi Minh City. Indeed, via our collected data from current financial market of Ho Chi Minh city, our MILP shows that the optimal cost-reduction is 11219 USD, even with limited constraints of only two landfills and very few collection facilities in Ho Chi Minh city at the moment. This result of our proposed RSC demonstrates that a significant profit is definitely possible when the number of collection facilities in Ho Chi Minh city increase in the future. Also, our MILP approach is flexible for decision-makers to achieve a satisfactory solution.

The aim of this paper is to explore the evolution of different micro-scale quantities during the cyclic loading using the discrete element method (DEM) for a granulate system such as sand. The numerical samples comprising of 9826 spheres were generated and consolidated isotropically using the periodic boundaries. These numerical samples were subjected to the cyclic loading for different maximum applied strains. The simulated stress-strain behavior was validated with the experiment and found an excellent agreement between them during loading and unloading. The evolutions of different micro-scale quantities were investigated in detail considering the variation of the maximum applied strain and the density of sample. It is noted that the evolution of the coordination number and the slip coordination number is a function of the maximum applied strain and the density of sample during the cyclic loading. The change of the slip coordination number is larger at the end of unloading than that at end of loading during the cyclic loading regardless of the values of the maximum applied strain and the density of sample. The ratio of strong contacts to all the contacts increases abruptly when the load is reversed, which is opposite to what is observed for the coordination number and the slip coordination number. The deviatoric fabric computed by the fabric tensor considering the strong contacts mimics the deviatoric stress irrespective of the values of the maximum applied strain and the density of sample during the cyclic loading. Moreover, a linear correlation between the macro and micro quantities exists regardless of the variation of the maximum applied strains or the variation of the density of the sample during the cyclic loading. The slopes of the lines of these correlations are almost same.

This paper follows our previous research in which we made a basic experiment to find out if it is possible to detect malware by multiple PE header detection. The previous results show us that there is a considerable amount of malwares that connect themselves to another file. This paper summarizes our previous results, updates the results and also expands them by adding an optimization method and also by including the scan of another (specific) types of data.

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.

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.
