Yanshan University is a university in Qinhuangdao, Hebei, China under the provincial government. It has student population of 38,000 and a staff population of 3000 .The origin of Yanshan University can be traced back to the Harbin Institute of Technology founded in 1920. In 1958, the Department of Heavy Machinery of HIT and its related specialties moved to the strategic industrial town of Fulaerji, Qiqihar in Northeast China's Heilongjiang Province and was renamed the School of Heavy Machinery of HIT. In 1960, the school became independent as the Northeast Heavy Machinery Institute, and in 1978, it was accredited as one of the eighty-eight national key institutions of higher learning. Starting in 1985, it began to relocate southward to the historic seaside city of Qinhuangdao in Hebei Province and completed the migration in 1997 when it was accredited by the former State Education Commission to adopt the present name of Yanshan University .The YSU campus covers an area of 5,000 mu with a total construction area of nearly one million square meters. At present, the university has a faculty and staff of 3000, including 2,000 teachers, of which 326 are professors and 422 are associate professors.

The melamine-diethylenetriaminepentaacetic acid/polyvinylidene fluoride (MA-DTPA/PVDF) chelating membrane bearing polyaminecarboxylate groups was prepared for the removal of Ni(II) from wastewater effluents. The membrane was characterized by SEM, (13)C NMR and FTIR techniques. Quantitative adsorption experiments were performed in view of pH, contact time, temperature, the presence of Ca(II) and lactic acid as the controlling parameters. Adsorption kinetics and equilibrium were examined regarding the single Ni(II) system, binary Ni(II) and Ca(II) system and nickel-lactic acid complexes system. The desorption efficiency was also evaluated, and the adsorption mechanism was suggested based on experimental data. The results show that the sorption kinetics fit well to Lagergren second-order equation and the isotherms can be well described by Langmuir model. At 298 K, the second-order rate constant is calculated to be 4.171, 11.39, 6.203 cm(2)/(mg min) and the equilibrium uptake is 0.0264, 0.0211 and 0.0216 mg/cm(2) in the aforementioned three systems. The distribution coefficient of Ni(II) slowly decreases from 4.27 to 2.72, and the separation factor (f(Ni(II)/Ca(II))) increases from 3.10 to 8.46 when the initial Ca(II) concentration varies from 20 to 200mg/L. This reveals the chelating membrane shows more affinity for Ni(II) than Ca(II) ions. In the studied range of lactic acid concentration, Ni(II) uptake decreases with the maximum ratio of 10%. Chemical bonding (chelation) dominates in the adsorption process, and the negative ΔG° and ΔH° indicate the spontaneous and exothermic nature of adsorption. Crown Copyright © 2011.

Size dependence effects in semiconductor clusters have been a subject of extensive studies for the last two decades. However, it is still difficult to employ the existing theoretical models to give reliable results of energies for clusters in the whole nanometer region. Here we offer a new theoretical method for the quantum size effects based on the idea that the energy gap shift of the cluster arises from the sum of the surface effect shift and quantum effect shift parts. We express the effects through algebraic relations rather than through variational solutions of the wave equation, without the use of any special adjustable parameter. Results reveal for the first time that the shape of the energy gap shift curve is dominated by the surface energy shift. Our method can also predict quantitatively the size dependence of dielectric constant. The new theoretical findings in the ultrasmall (<1 nm) anatase TiO2and the silicon clusters cannot be explained using previous theories. © 2010 American Chemical Society.

A concise finite element model for simple wire strand under pure bending is presented in this paper. Accurate bending symmetric boundary condition has been developed and applied to the periodic artificial cross-sectional end boundaries of the wire strand finite element model. To achieve better analysis accuracy, full three-dimensional solid elements were used for structural discretization. For the global behaviour of the wire strand, i.e. bending moment vs. bending curvature, the finite element results showed good agreement with the analytical elastic strand model of Costello (Theory of wire rope, 2nd ed. New York: Springer-Verlag; 1997) in elastic loading regime. Furthermore, the finite element model can predict the detailed progressive nonlinear plastic behaviour of the wire strand. © 2011 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

A quantum confinement model for nanocrystals developed is extended to study for the optical gap shifts in core/shell quantum dots and nanowires. The chemical bond properties and gap shifts in the InP/ZnS, CdSe/CdS, CdSe/ZnS, and CdTe/ZnS core/shell quantum dots are calculated in detail. The calculated band gaps are in excellent agreement with experimental values. The effects of structural taping and twinning on quantum confinement of InP and Si nanowires are elucidated. It is found theoretically that a competition between the positive Kubo energy-gap shift and the negative surface energy shift plays the crucial role in the optical gaps of these nanosystems. © 2011 American Institute of Physics.
