Abstract ( 60 )
In the past 30 years, significant progress has been made in the field of civil engineering and infrastructure construction in China, greatly supporting the continuous development of the economy. While China's economy steps into the "new normal" phase, the development of civil engineering shows some new features and the developments of fundamental theories and advanced technologies attract more and more attention. Nonlinear analysis of structures, one of the essential problems in civil engineering, has been concerned by more and more researchers and engineers. For constitutive modeling of engineering materials, the damage model plays an important role where structural damage and failure are considered. In this paper, the historical development of damage model for quasi-brittle materials is briefly reviewed. Then V&V of the damage model is described and its applications to civil engineering are presented by case studies. Finally, an application of the theory to bio-engineering is shown with a case. In the near future, the transformation and upgrading of traditional civil engineering will be promoted by the coupling between its fundamental research and engineering application.

Abstract ( 46 )
Secondary organic aerosol (SOA) is one of the most important components of PM2.5. It significantly influences air quality, radiation balance and human health. Thus, studying the formation and control of SOA has a significant meaning in revealing the cause of particulate pollution and improving eco-environment. However, there are still many challenges in the field of SOA study because of the complexity of organic compounds, reactions and atmospheric conditions. The purpose of the paper is to summarize the progress of SOA research based on investigating the literature published on the top international academic journals in the field of environment and atmospheric chemistry in 2019. The molecular characteristics and sources of SOA are delved into with a variety of novel or modified methods and instruments in both field studies and laboratory simulations. The formation process and major influence factors of SOA from some natural and anthropogenic precursors are investigated. Atmospheric aqueous chemistry and the interaction between organic and inorganic compounds are found playing an important role in the formation and aging of SOA. In addition, the contribution of SOA to the change of aerosol optical property and the impact of aerosol on human health are estimated. In conclusion, it is necessary to pay attention to the further research of SOA so as to take effective actions to control particulate pollution.

Abstract ( 74 )
The microbial pollution in water environment would induce intestinal and respiratory diseases, threatening human's health. More and more attention had been paid to the pollution situation and detection methods of microorganisms in water environment. Based on the categories of water environment microorganisms, this study briefly introduced the characteristics and infection risk of pathogens. The indicative microorganisms in Chinese water quality standards were summarized and compared to that in USA and EU. The main factors affecting the microbial pollution in water environments were made clear based on the sources of microbial pollution. The detection methods of water environment microorganisms and their application status were reviewed. In brief, all the seven watersheds are contaminated by microorganisms. It would positively improve the prevention and control work of microbial pollution by improving the indicative microorganisms in relative water quality standards, controlling the sources of microbial pollution, and enhancing the detectability of microbial pollution.

Analysis on urbanization quality, urban resilience and disaster risk of typhoon rainstorm: Take 7 southeast coastal provinces and cities for example

LUO Ziyuan, ZENG Jian
Science & Technology Review. 2021, 39 (15): 124-134. ;  doi: 10.3981/j.issn.1000-7857.2021.15.013

Abstract ( 60 )
Coastal provinces and cities are faced with severe typhoon and rainstorm disaster risk. The quality of urbanization and urban resilience plays an important role in resisting the risk of Typhoon Rainstorm. This paper analyzes the influence mechanism of urbanization, urban resilience and the disaster risk of Typhoon Rainstorm from the theoretical level, and puts forward the hypothesis that the urban resilience is the mediator between the urbanization quality and disaster risk of Typhoon Rainstorm. This paper measures the urbanization quality from economic development, social development, residential life, infrastructure and environment reserves, and quantifies urban resilience from economy, society, infrastructure and ecology. The urbanization quality, urban resilience and disaster risk of Typhoon Rainstorm are quantitatively evaluated, based on the Yearbook, meteorological and disaster data of the seven southeast coastal provinces and cities from 2005 to 2019. The coupling degree of urbanization quality and urban resilience is analyzed. The mediating effect of urban resilience on the impact of urbanization quality on the disaster risk of Typhoon Rainstorm is further analyzed. The results show that:Due to the differences in resources and environment, development policy and social investment, the coupling degree between the seven southeast coastal provinces and cities is different. The coupling degree decreases before increases under the influence of the policy of "development before governance". High urbanization quality and high level of urban resilience significantly reduce the disaster risk of Typhoon Rainstorm. Urban resilience performed as a mediator between the urbanization quality and disaster risk of Typhoon Rainstorm. However, the unbalanced development of various components of urban resilience caused two different mechanisms of "masking effect" and "mediating effect". Economic resilience, social resilience and ecological resilience play part of the mediating effect, while infrastructure resilience plays a masking effect. In order to give full play to the role of resilience in resisting disaster risks, the construction of resilient cities should be included in the statutory planning to form the planning basis and guarantee. Green infrastructure and grey infrastructure should be coupled to weaken the masking effect of infrastructure resilience.

Abstract ( 80 )
In early 2020, COVID-19 outbroke in many countries around the world. Governments of various countries have since adopted diversified prevention and control measures to control the epidemic. Among them, AI has been an important auxiliary means that plays a unique role in prevention and control of COVID-19. The practical scenarios of AI assisting the prevention and control of COVID-19 have been focused on research field, mainly including epidemic monitoring and early warning, medical diagnosis, virus and drug research and development. The application of AI technology has significant effects on controlling the spread of the epidemic, alleviating the pressure of diagnosis and treatment and improving the efficiency of research and development. At the same time, AI is still facing practical problems such as regulations and ethics, data security, and algorithmic bias. Based on this, suggestions such as perfecting laws and regulations, ensuring data security, and strengthening talent training are proposed.
