The various strategies and schemes of groundwater control are proposed and recommended for various strata and types of groundwater encountered in deep foundation pits located in 1st terrace near Yangtze River in Wuhan City based on the engineering experience in recent fifteen years. For the confined water in this terrace, the deep well is believed to be the most effective method.

Image mosaicking is defined as the registration of two or more images that are then combined into a single image. One of the most difficult steps in the automatic mosaicking of orthoimages is deciding where to place seamlines in overlapping regions. Based on millions of image pixels, existing seamline detection methods mainly focus on how to avoid crossing buildings that are higher than the ground, which results in parallax on the overlapping images. However, various data in vector format, such as vector roads plotted manually and precisely, have not been used to aid the selection of seamlines. This paper presents a novel approach using vector roads alone to generate seamlines, and describes its application to the automatic generation of seamlines for image mosaicking of the city of Wuhan, China. A representative seamline is extracted as follows. First, the skeleton of the overlapping region of adjacent images is extracted after the delineation of boundaries of individual images. Second, vector roads in the overlapping region are overlaid with the extracted skeleton to build a weighted graph G (V, E). Finally, the Floyd-Warshall algorithm is applied to find the lowest cost path from I to O, which refer to two intersections of adjacent image polygons, with the lowest-cost path being the seamline. This vector-based approach is typically more efficient than raster-based approaches. Experiments demonstrate the merits of the proposed approach especially when vector road networks are available. © 2012 International Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing, Inc. (ISPRS).

A total solar eclipse on 22 July 2009, the longest one of this century, occurred in East Asia and Pacific. Meanwhile, a medium magnetic storm arise in the late eclipse. The electron density profiles in maximum eclipse time were obtained from COSMIC radio occultation, and time series of TEC in local area was obtained from ground GPS stations of Wuhan CORS. And some physical mechanism of ionospheric effects during in the eclipse were analyzed.

The visual detection based on structured light is put forward to solve the problem of image matching for stereo vision in recent years. It is paid much attention in the industrial environment, especially in the three-dimensional automatic detection and object recognition. In this paper, it is discussed about the accuracy of visual inspection techniques based on structured light. There are some factors of affecting measurement techniques based on structured light, which are object material, edge detection algorithms, uneven lighting, and so on. The experimental results reveal that these three factors have a great impact on the accuracy of the model measurement of irregular objects. © 2011 SPIE.

Remote sensing change detection is a hot issue in recent years. However, most methods originate from statistical pattern recognition. Parameter resolution and time-consuming are main disadvantages of these methods. Hence, in this paper we propose a novel remote sensing change detection method which originates from neural network pattern recognition. The method is based on Growing Hierarchical Self Organization Map(GHSOM). GHSOM has flexible network architecture to adjust remote sensing scene complexity. Theoretically speaking , GHSOM is able to extract change areas well. In experiment, we select three pairs of remote sensing image. We compare the results with Gaussian Mixture Model result and traditional SOFM result. The experiment shows the proposed method is advantageous in efficiency and detection accuracy. It can be expected that the method will be applied in GIS data updating, land use cover surveying, and natural disaster evaluation. ©2010 IEEE.

This letter proposes a novel approach using vector roads to aid in generating seams for aerial image mosaicking. A representative seam of two adjacent images is extracted as follows. First, the vector roads in the overlapping area of adjacent images are overlaid with the straight skeleton of the overlapping area to build a weighted graph G(V, E). Dijkstra's algorithm is then applied to find the lowest cost path in G(V, E) that connects two intersections of the boundary polygons of adjacent images. The lowest cost path is considered as a seam candidate. Second, the seam candidate is refined by considering its surrounding pixels. The refined seam is employed as the final seam. Experiments demonstrate that this vector-based approach is typically more efficient than the existing raster-based approaches, particularly when vector road networks are available. © 2012 IEEE.

Knowledge management is to collect, organize, process and transmit the information and provide effective means to make use of the information fully. The development and application of GIS and internet technology will import the bran-new concept for the knowledge management, promote the knowledge management to the direction of videotext and collaboration, and increase the longitudinal deepness and the transverse extent for the knowledge management. The development of knowledge management demands to build geographic information-based comprehensive resource system, carry out association and sharing of comprehensive information of multiple types and levels, and improve the knowledge management and knowledge finding capability of spatial information. © 2012.

The displacement evaluation method for composite soil-nailing walls has not been discovered due to the complicated properties of soils and various retaining structures although composite walls have been widely applied. 26 typical case histories of composite soil-nailing walls in deep excavations are presented. The maximum lateral displacements and settlements are analyzed in these cases to find out the relationships between geology and retaining structures. The statistical results show that the maximum lateral displacements and settlements for composite soil-nailing walls are 0.4% and 0.2% of excavation depths, respectively. The former is about twice that for piles and diaphragms. The maximum lateral displacements are reduced slightly for the composite soil-nailing walls with prestressed anchors and micro-piles. The new concept, the unit shear strength of soil, is proposed based on the Mohr-Coulomb failure criterion to quantify the whole shear strength of soil. The maximum displacements are found to decrease significantly as the unit shear strength for the main strata increases.

The earth pressure on flexible structures in soil-nailing walls is neither in accordance with the preconditions of the traditional pressure theory, nor has suitable theories to apply. The earth pressure thus has to be evaluated by engineering experience. A new method is proposed for evaluation of the earth pressure by combining the upper bound solution with engineering data to show the characteristics in soil nailing so as to allow soil to move and mobilize the soil strength. The new method is applied to a composite wall for validation. The analytical results are found to be in agreement with the actual conditions. The earth pressure exists after the excavation depth exceeds the self-stabilizing height of the soil. Its value is related to the excavation depth, slope angle, soil properties and supporting structural settings. The proposed method is suitable for determining the earth pressure on soil-nailing walls, composite soil-nailing walls.

In a combined structure, soil-nailing wall retains the upper and shallow soil while propped piles at the toe of the wall augments the overall stability of ground in deep excavation. Although such a structure developed from soil nailing wall plus internally-braced pile has widely been employed, it is regarded as not an integral structure, but a separate one to analyze and calculate. This treatment is unreasonable. By the numerical experiments, the combined structure is explored about its space earth-retaining mechanism as the integrated system. Analytical results indicate that the actual earth pressure exerted to the structure is different with that determined by Rankine's theory. The distribution of Rankine's pressure is adjusted to accommodate the calculation results. A case study proves the validity of the adjustment.
