A virtual reconfigurable architecture (VRA)-based evolvable hardware is proposed for automatic synthesis of combinational logic circuits at gate-level. The proposed VRA is implemented by a Celoxica RC1000 peripheral component interconnect (PCI) board with an Xilinx Virtex xcv2000E field programmable gate array (FPGA). To improve the quality of the evolved circuits, the VRA works through a two-stage evolution: finding a functional circuit and minimizing the number of logic gates used in a feasible circuit. To optimize the algorithm performance in the two-stage evolutionary process and set free the user from the time-consuming process of mutation parameter tuning, a self-adaptive mutation rate control (SAMRC) scheme is introduced. In the evolutionary process, the mutation rate control parameters are encoded as additional genes in the chromosome and also undergo evolutionary operations. The efficiency of the proposed methodology is tested with the evolutions of a 4-bit even parity function, a 2-bit multiplier, and a 3-bit multiplier. The obtained results demonstrate that our scheme improves the evolutionary design of combinational logic circuits in terms of quality of the evolved circuit as well as the computational effort, when compared to the existing evolvable hardware approaches. © 2014 Central South University Press and Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.

A novel acoustic emission (AE) source localization approach based on beamforming with two uniform linear arrays is proposed, which can localize acoustic sources without accurate velocity, and is particularly suited for plate-like structures. Two uniform line arrays are distributed in the x-axis direction and y-axis direction. The accurate x and y coordinates of AE source are determined by the two arrays respectively. To verify the location accuracy and effectiveness of the proposed approach, the simulation of AE wave propagation in a steel plate based on the finite element method and the pencil-lead-broken experiment are conducted, and the AE signals obtained from the simulations and experiments are analyzed using the proposed method. Moreover, to study the ability of the proposed method more comprehensive, a plate of carbon fiber reinforced plastics is taken for the pencil-lead-broken test, and the AE source localization is also realized. The results indicate that the two uniform linear arrays can localize different sources accurately in two directions even though the localizing velocity is deviated from the real velocity, which demonstrates the effectiveness of the proposed method in AE source localization for plate-like structures. © 2013 Elsevier B.V.

In order to improve the performance of Chinese text categorization, a Chinese text categorization method was proposed based on evolutionary hypernetwork. A Chinese Lexical Analysis System (ICTCLAS) was employed to take the words with parts of verb, noun and adjective as candidate features. The χ2-test method was used to realize feature selection, and the feature weight was calculated by Boolean weighting. The preprocessed data sets were divided into training set and testing set. A hyperedge replacement strategy was used to train hypernetwork classification model for classifying testing sets. The classification performances of the hypernetwork models with different orders were analyzed and compared with traditional KNN and SVM. The experimental results show that the proposed scheme can achieve 87.2% and 72.5% of macro precision, 86.9% and 70.5% of macro recall, 87.0% and 71.5% of macro F1 for Fudan University corpus and Sohu corpus, respectively. As an efficient tool for Chinese text classification, the proposed scheme is close to or better than KNN and SVM classification methods.

Granular computing, which imitates human being's thinking, is an approach for knowledge representation and data mining. Its basic computing unit is called granule, and its objective is to establish effective computation models for dealing with large scale complex data and information. In order to study knowledge acquisition in ordered information systems with multi-granular labels, rough set approximations based on ordered granular labeled structures are explored. The concept of ordered labeled structures is first introduced. A dominance relation on the universe of discourse from an ordered labeled structure is also defined. Dominated labeled blocks determined by the dominance relation are constructed. Ordered lower approximations and ordered upper approximations, as well as ordered labeled lower approximations and ordered labeled upper approximations of sets based on dominance relations, are then proposed. Properties of approximation operators are examined. It is further proved that the qualities of lower and upper approximations of a set derived from an ordered labeled structure are a dual pair of necessity measure and possibility measure. Finally, multi-scale ordered granular labeled structures are defined and relationships among rough approximations with different scales induced from multi-scale ordered granular labeled structures are discussed. ©, 2014, Science Press.

An integrated model of rough set and neural network (RS_RBFNN) was proposed for predicting fatigue life of titanium alloy welded joints. The fatigue data were discretized by using the entropy-based algorithm, and the fatigue evaluation indices were reduced without information loss through a genetic algorithm. The reduced indices were used to develop the rules for fatigue life of welded joints and to train the RBF neural network. The rough set theory was used to determine the category of fatigue life for the test samples which matched the rules in the rule-base. The neural network was applied to those test samples which did not match any rules in the rule-base. Experimental results based on the fatigue data of titanium alloy show that the RS_RBFNN model for fatigue analysis of welded joints had improved fault tolerance and precision. Therefore this model is of practical significance for predicting fatigue life of titanium alloy welded joints. ©, 2015, Harbin Research Institute of Welding. All right reserved.
