In order to improve the efficiency in economic data processing, the construction of the data processing system based on the net cluster technology is proposed in this paper. As an important part of Statistic Data Warehouse, the Macro-economy Emulation System, which is based on statistic data warehouse, is now being used on Government Decision Support System. Currently, the system is processing the emulation over the abundant national macro-economy data. It presents the building of Visual Macroeconomic Emulating System on Statistic Data Warehouse (SDWES), including data extraction and check-up, data normalization, and a mechanism to support market analysis and forecast. The experiment shows this paper has a reference value for the application of net cluster technology in the construction process of economic data processing system which can also promote the overall performance substantially.

In this paper, the endoreversible Otto cycle is analyzed with the entropy generation minimization and the entransy theory. The output power and the heat-work conversion efficiency are taken as the optimization objectives, and the relationships of the output power, the heat-work conversion efficiency, the entropy generation rate, the entropy generation numbers, the entransy loss rate, the entransy loss coefficient, the entransy dissipation rate and the entransy variation rate associated with work are discussed. The applicability of the entropy generation minimization and the entransy theory to the analyses is also analyzed. It is found that smaller entropy generation rate does not always lead to larger output power, while smaller entropy generation numbers do not always lead to larger heat-work conversion efficiency, either. In our calculations, both larger entransy loss rate and larger entransy variation rate associated with work correspond to larger output power, while larger entransy loss coefficient results in larger heat-work conversion efficiency. It is also found that the concept of entransy dissipation is not always suitable for the analyses because it was developed for heat transfer. © 2017 Science China Press and Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg

With better understanding of the quality and physico-mechanical properties of rocks of dam foundation, and the physico-mechanical properties and structure design of arch dam in association with the foundation excavation of Xiluodu arch dam, the excavation optimization design was proposed for the foundation surface on the basis of feasibility study. Common analysis and numerical analysis results demonstrated the feasibility of using the weakly weathered rocks III1 and III2 as the foundation surface of super-high arch dam. In view of changes in the geological conditions at the dam foundation along the riverbed direction, the design of extending foundation surface excavation area and using consolidating grouting and optimizing structure of dam bottom was introduced, allowing for harmonization of the arch dam and foundation. Three-dimensional (3D) geomechanics model test and finite element analysis results indicated that the dam body and foundation have good overload stability and high bearing capacity. The monitoring data showed that the behaviors of dam and foundation correspond with the designed patterns in the construction period and the initial operation period. © 2015 Institute of Rock and Soil Mechanics, Chinese Academy of Sciences.

One-stream heat exchangers and one-stream heat exchanger networks are widely used in engineering. In this paper, the heat transfer performance evaluation of one-stream heat exchangers and one-stream heat exchanger networks is analyzed with the concepts of entropy generation rate, entropy generation number, revised entropy generation number, entropy resistance, entransy dissipation rate, entransy dissipation number and generalized thermal resistance. For the analyzed one-stream heat exchangers, our numerical results show that the extremum value of the entransy dissipation rate and the minimum values of the entropy resistance and the generalized thermal resistance always lead to the largest heat transfer rate or the lowest temperature of the cooled object, while the minimum values of the other parameters do not always. For the analyzed one-stream heat exchanger networks, the minimizations of entransy dissipation rate, entransy dissipation number and generalized thermal resistance always correspond to the lowest average temperature of the cooled objects, while the minimizations of the other parameters do not. Therefore, only the extremum entransy dissipation principle and the minimum generalized thermal resistance principle are always applicable for the heat transfer performance evaluation of the systems in this paper, while the applicability of the other parameters is conditional. © 2017 Science China Press and Springer-Verlag GmbH Germany

In this article, we consider regularity of solutions to the 3D viscous MHD equations. Regularity criteria are established in terms of the pressure or the gradient of pressure, which improve the results in Y.

Aiming to these present frequent neighboring class set mining algorithms existing more repeated computing and redundancy neighboring class set, this paper proposes an algorithm of alternately mining frequent neighboring class set, which is suitable for mining frequent neighboring class set of objects in large spatial data. The algorithm uses the regression method to create database of neighboring class set, and uses the alternative method to generate candidate frequent neighboring class set, namely, it uses increasing sequence to generate candidate in the one hand, it also uses decreasing sequence to generate candidate on the other hand, it only need scan once database to extract frequent neighboring class set. The algorithm improves mining efficiency by the alternative method, since not only using numerical variable to generate candidate is simple, but also using logic operation to compute support is very simple. The result of experiment indicates that the algorithm is faster and more efficient than presented algorithms when mining frequent neighboring class set in large spatial data. © 2010 Springer-Verlag.

Plant glutathione S-transferases (GSTs) have been a focus of attention due to their role in herbicide detoxification. OsGSTL2 is a glutathione S-transferase, lambda class gene from rice (Oryza sativa L.). Transgenic rice plants over-expressing OsGSTL2 were generated from rice calli by the use of an Agrobacterium transformation system, and were screened by a combination of hygromycin resistance, PCR and Southern blot analysis. In the vegetative tissues of transgenic rice plants, the over-expression of OsGSTL2 not only increased levels of OsGSTL2 transcripts, but also GST and GPX expression, while reduced superoxide. Transgenic rice plants also showed higher tolerance to glyphosate and chlorsulfuron, which often contaminate agricultural fields. The findings demonstrate the detoxification role of OsGSTL2 in the growth and development of rice plants. It should be possible to apply the present results to crops for developing herbicide tolerance and for limiting herbicide contamination in the food chain.

Conjugate gradient methods are a class of important methods for unconstrained optimization problems, especially when the dimension is large. In this paper, we study a class of modified conjugate gradient methods based on the famous LS conjugate gradient method, which produces a sufficient descent direction at each iteration and converges globally provided that the line search satisfies the strong Wolfe condition. At the same time, a new specific nonlinear conjugate gradient method is constructed. Our numerical results show that the new method is very efficient for the given test problems by comparing with the famous LS method, PRP method and CG-DESCENT method. © 2013 Elsevier Ltd.
