    Analyzing the urban transport layout in the plains of China

    As the population of cities grows, the demand for sprawl increases. With the expansion of urban areas, the management of urban traffic has also come to a great challenge. Managers need to have quick access to information about a city’s traffic. In order to achieve this goal, it is necessary to build an information model. However, there is still a lack of research on information modeling in China, and the efficiency of modeling is relatively low. This paper analyses the terrain and climate of the existing plains in China, as well as compares previous urban designs in the world, finds that flooding often occurs in the plains of China, thus the main problems that need to be considered in the design of cities in the plains of China are drainage and population. By combining the strengths of previous urban designs, a new model of the mesh city is proposed to adapt to the plains area and help designers speed up the modeling.

    Combustion and impact performance of DEGDN propellants under different size conditions

    DEGDN propellant plays an important role in the use of large-caliber artillery, and its combustion and mechanical properties determine the power of large-caliber artillery. In order to study the combustion performance and mechanical properties of DEGDN propellant, four kinds of single-hole propellant with different pore diameters were prepared from DEGDN raw material ZY-11 pellets, with pore diameters of 3mm, 4mm, 5mm, and 6mm, which were recorded as 45/1-3mm, 45/1-4mm, 45/1-5mm, and 45/1-6mm, respectively. Analyze its combustion performance using closed bomb and test its impact resistance using a pendulum impact tester. The experimental results show that in the combustion process, the combustion pressure of the propellant in the higher temperature conditions, the faster its growth rate, while the whole combustion process is also faster; combustion process combustion speed will not change with the change of the aperture, only the different temperature conditions will make the combustion speed change, the higher the temperature of the maximum combustion speed it can achieve the larger. When the pore diameter is 4mm, the impact strength reaches a maximum of 30.6KJ×m-2, which is nearly 40% stronger than 45/1-3mm and 45/1-6mm.

    Enhancing human well-being and comfort: Optimizing the integration of plants in buildings

    The escalating challenges posed by greenhouse effects and the imperative for sustainable solutions have garnered global attention towards mitigating environmental harm, with buildings emerging as significant contributors to carbon emissions. This case study meticulously examines the Shunde Country Garden Headquarters Building, a visually captivating exemplar of plant integration within architectural frameworks. While the initial design emphasizes aesthetics and sustainability, a deeper exploration uncovers shortcomings in considering the well-being of occupants. The integration of plants into building structures holds promise in carbon absorption and reduced energy consumption, making a positive contribution to sustainability. However, the Shunde case underscores challenges such as insufficient natural light, poor ventilation, and elevated indoor humidity levels. These issues highlight the critical necessity of aligning architectural designs with human experiences, transcending mere aesthetics and sustainability. This study also reveals a noticeable oversight in the social dimension of buildings integrated with plants within existing certifications and architectural practices. While certifications like LEED, WELL, Envision, and BREEAM primarily evaluate sustainability from a conventional standpoint, architects often prioritize aesthetics over the living experiences of occupants. The absence of comprehensive guidelines addressing human well-being and comfort impedes the widespread adoption of Vertical Greenery Systems (VGS). In response, this project aims to propose a design guideline that holistically considers environmental, economic, and social aspects. By accentuating occupants' comfort and well-being, the objective is to unlock the practical potential of VGS across various countries. The proposed design guideline encompasses environmental, economic, and social considerations. It delves into lighting, support, and landscape elements for the environment, and addresses economic aspects such as potential, construction, design, and landscape economy. Importantly, the social aspect takes precedence in the guideline, concentrating on innovation, location, and landscape. By addressing environment, economy, and society, this paper endeavors to elevate the impact of Vertical Greenery Systems on human well-being and comfort, fostering a sustainable and harmonious relationship between architecture and nature.

    Research on medium-term electric power load forecasting based on SSAD-CEEMDAN

    To fully enhance the accuracy of electric power load forecasting, a medium-term electric power load forecasting model based on secondary decomposition (predicted model of power load based on secondary decomposition, PMPL-SD) is proposed. In the PMPL-SD algorithm, the original load data are first decomposed and reconstructed using the singular spectrum analysis decomposition method; then, the data after denoising are further decomposed and reconstructed using the noise-assisted complete ensemble empirical mode decomposition to obtain three components: high frequency, medium frequency, and trend. At the same time, a combined network model consisting of convolutional neural networks and bidirectional long short-term memory networks is used to predict the three components separately. The component results are integrated to obtain the final forecasting result. To verify the performance of the PMPL-SD algorithm, three models are selected for comparison. The experimental results show that the proposed algorithm has higher forecasting accuracy in medium-term electric power load forecasting.
