DENG Xinghong, ZHANG Anning, LI Tianlong, ZHANG Guangyu, LI Longqiu
Science & Technology Review. 2017, 35 (18): 39-43. ;  doi: 10.3981/j.issn.1000-7857.2017.18.004

Abstract ( 196 )
Magnetic powered micro-/nanomotors can be used in a variety of fluids, such as water, blood plasma and tissue fluid, because they are not driven by fuels. It can be remotely actuated in living organisms by an external magnetic field, noninvasively. The motion control of magnetic micro-/nanomotors can be easily achieved by modulating the external magnetic field generated by electromagnet. With these inherent advantages, magnetic micro-/nanomotors find a wide range of potential applications for medical treatments such as the targeted drug delivery and the cell manipulation. Swimming devices in a low Reynolds number environment must overcome the high viscosity force to achieve propulsion. The Scallop theorem requires that the flexible micro-/nanomotors must deform in a way which is not invariant in a time-reversal process. By these principles, three types of magnetic powered micro-/nanomotors were developed, which are the surface walkers, the helical magnetic propellers and the flexible magnetic propellers. Natural microorganisms achieve propulsion with flexible flagella or rigid helical flagella to break the time-reversal process. Inspired by swimming of microorganisms, the magnetic powered flexible micro-/nanomotors achieve motion in a low Reynolds number environment by a cyclic deformation powered by an external magnetic field. This type of flexible micro-/nanomotors have a high propulsion efficiency thus require a low magnetic field intensity. Four topics concerning this type of micro-/nanomotor are elaborated in this paper, namely, the fabrication, the mode of locomotion, the propulsion performance and the motion control. At last the problems that remain to be solved and the development tendency of magnetic powered flexible micro-/nanomotors are discussed.

Abstract ( 208 )
In recent years, the RFID is widely used in indoor positioning fields. The existing positioning systems using the RFID technology have some problems in the aspects of the location accuracy, the efficiency, the reliability, the cost and others. A distributed multiple antenna array reader positioning system can achieve a fast and accurate positioning according to the signal intensity and the phase difference detected by receiving antennas. The local identification code can simplify the identification process and achieve a high-speed identification of target tags and meet the requirements of the fast moving object positioning. Compared with the traditional positioning method, the proposed algorithm has prominent advantages in the positioning speed, the positioning accuracy and the anti-interference ability.

Characteristics of ultrasonic propagation in carbonate rock pore model

Science & Technology Review. 2017, 35 (18): 64-72. ;  doi: 10.3981/j.issn.1000-7857.2017.18.008

Abstract ( 297 )
This paper studies the characteristics of ultrasonic propagation in a model of a small pillar of the pore-cave type carbonate rock of different size and shape and distribution and in ultrasonic multi frequency, using the numerical simulation method of two-dimensional ultrasound and physical model experiments, from the perspective of kinematics and dynamics. The results show that in the single pore-cave discontinuous distribution, the size change almost has no effect on the velocity but is correlated with the attenuation coefficient positively; in the case of the same size, with the increase of the test frequency, the velocity increases, with the attenuation coefficient and the frequency in an exponential increasing relation. The influence of the hole shape (round holes or square holes) is related with the porosity. The porosity of 9% is the critical value. When it is less than 9%, the effects can be neglected; when it is more than 9%, the influence of circular holes is greater than that of square holes on the attenuation coefficient. The influence of elliptical holes is related with the aspect ratio, when the aspect ratio is greater than 1, with the increase of the aspect ratio, the attenuation coefficient changes little, whereas the attenuation coefficient varies greatly when the aspect ratio is less than 1. With the increase of the concentration of the pore distribution, the wave velocity decreases linearly, and the attenuation coefficient increases linearly.

Abstract ( 323 )
Based on the observations of the 10-minute mean wind speed during 2005 to 2014 and the hourly extreme wind speed during 2009 to 2014 in 2373 national meteorological stations, and with consideration of the grades of wind effects on the expressway transportation in the meteorological standard (QX/T111-2010), the frequency and the intensity of the disaster-inducing gale are selected as the evaluation indexes, and the hazard of the disaster-inducing factors is evaluated with the entropy weight method. The nationwide distribution of the disaster-inducing gale hazard for the expressway transportation is obtained, which illustrates that the highest risk areas are mainly located in the west-central Inner Mongolia, the north and west Tibetan plateau, and Alashan Passes, Daban City, Sanshili and Baili Wind areas of Xinjiang. The second high risk areas are mainly distributed in the middle and west Inner Mongolia, the western Gansu, the western and southern Qinghai, the east and north-central Xinjiang, the northwest of Northern Xinjiang and the coastal areas of the northeastern Shandong Peninsula, the southeastern Fujian, the southwestern Hainan. The disaster-inducing gale hazard is relatively low in other regions.

Abstract ( 241 )
The biosorption is a new technology, which can be widely applied for the removal of heavy metals from wastewater. The development of an efficient and low-cost adsorbent is a key in the biosorption technology. The adsorption performance of Pb(Ⅱ) by the fermented sweet sorghum stalks (FSSR) is discussed in this paper. The adsorption process is a chemical one and follows the pseudo-second order kinetics. After fermented, the equilibrium adsorption capacity of the material is increased from 3.32 mg/g to 6.92 mg/g. The isotherm adsorption is fitted well with the linear Langmuir model. When the temperature rises from 10℃ to 40℃, the maximum adsorption capacity of Pb (Ⅱ) is increased from 5.92 mg/g to 7.23 mg/g. In binary and ternary systems, the adsorption capacities are in the order of Pb(Ⅱ) > Cu (Ⅱ) > Zn(Ⅱ). There are more active functional groups on the surface of the stalk after fermentation, and these changes will be beneficial to the adsorption reaction and can improve the adsorption capacity.

Abstract ( 202 )
To select a suitable winter wheat cultivar under extremely-late sown and limited irrigation conditions in the heilonggang region, a 3 year field experiment is conducted using three cultivars varying in spike types:the large spike cultivar Weimai 8, the small spike cultivar Hengshui4399, and the medium spike cultivar Jimai 22. Characteristics of photosynthesis post-anthesis and dynamic of grainfilling are investigated for these extremely-late sown wheat cultivars. Results show that the yield differences among the cultivars are mainly due to the differences in the 1000 grain weight (TGW), with the Jimai 22 having the highest TGW and yield. Comparing with the Weimai 8 and the Hengshui 4399, the higher TGW of the Jimai 22 comes largely from the longer grain-filling period, especially, the active grainfilling period, and the higher grain-filling rate in the late grain-filling stages, closely associated with the higher light interception rate and photosynthetic rate. Thus, the medium spike cultivar Jimia 22 is a suitable cultivar under extremely-late sown and limited irrigation conditions in the heilonggang region.
