Abstract: As the public application of the railway and the road increases, properly functioning and
safe railway crossing between two means of transportation becomes more important. In the past,
materials such as wood, asphalt, and steel were used for railway crossing panel. As these materials
showed various drawbacks, the rubber panel was introduced for railway crossing panel. To
encourage the use of the rubber panel, the structural action analyses of rubber panel were studied.
In this research, using the finite-element method (FEM), several structural properties were analyzed
and presented including the eigenvalue, stress, and displacement by a passing truck’s weight, and
the thermal stress induced by the railway track.
Abstract: Distance evaluation and its improved algorithms using Vertical distance instead of
Euclidean distance were discussed in engineering materials selection. Taking the selection of
materials for low temperature storage container as an example, based on eight kinds of evaluation
indices, according to the weight obtained by AHP method, ten kinds of candidate materials were
evaluated by using distance evaluation and its improved algorithms. The results indicate that, the
optimal material selected coincides with the practice of industry, and the sequence of the candidate
materials arranged using improved algorithms is more reliable, which shows that improved
algorithms of distance evaluation is a feasible and effective way for engineering materials selection.
Abstract: Aiming at the concentric shaft of the abnormal cross-section where there are two types of
the concave fillet and the convex fillet and whose diameter ratio is bigger than 2, a 3D finite
element computing model was constructed, and the stress and the strain is computed by means of
software ANSYS8.0, and a stress concentration coefficient graph is found through comparing the
result computed by FEM and by the method of material mechanics. It is concluded that the most
important factors effecting the stress concentration are the type and radius of the transition fillet.
Abstract: In order to investigate performance characteristics of deteriorated subway rolling stocks,
several engineering assessment methods, such as the acceleration, vibration, and braking
performance tests, were carried out on subway electric multiple units (EMUs) with over 20 years
operation. According to the testing results, in vibration and braking performance of EMUs, the
similar performance results were obtained as compared with newly manufactured EMUs. However,
in terms of acceleration performance characteristic, below reference value (3.0 km/h/s) has been
obtained. This is mainly due to performance deterioration of EMUs including traction motor. In this
investigation, the results on precision diagnosis evaluation of deteriorated EMUs were provided
through the overall evaluation of corrosion testing and structural performance of car body in
Abstract: Based on neural networks, the present paper gives an engineering application of data
mining. The back propagation (BP) neural network is used as the algorithm of data mining. Then
the effects of structural technologic parameters on stress in the weld region of the shield engine rotor
in a submarine are analyzed. The mined data come from the numerical simulations of the finite
element method. The effects of different parameters on the stress in the weld region are achieved
from the results of the data mining. The discovered knowledge is beneficial to the security improvement
of structural strength design for the engine rotor.
Abstract: The metallic films covering diamond play a very important role in the course of diamond
nucleation and growth from Fe-Ni-C system at high-temperature and high-pressure (HTHP). The
microstructures and surface morphologies of the metallic films are investigated by field-emission
scanning electron microscope (FESEM) in this paper. It is shown that there are large numbers of
small particles and a series of serrations on the inner surface of the films. It is calculated that the
metallic film is mainly composed of (Fe, Ni) 3C, (Fe, Ni)2 3C6, but no diamond structure. The results
by energy dispersive spectrometer (EDS) analysis are in good agreement with these by transmission
electron microscopy (TEM). It can be concluded that the carbon atom groups coming from the
decomposition of Fe-C compound rich in carbon in the film are deposited on the diamond surface
directly and diamonds grow in the model of sandwich.
Abstract: This paper presents a novel bulk micromachined gyroscope with the compensatory
capacitance. Independent driving and sensing beams and a dual-frame structure are adopted to
decouple mechanically for stable operation. The method of electrostatic push-pull drive and
capacitive sense combs based on the slide film damping are applied to obtain a large driving force and
high quality factors. The compensatory capacitance is designed to compensate the deviations of
sensing differential capacitance from fabrications. The designed gyroscope has matched resonant
frequencies of 2187Hz and 2206Hz for the drive and sense modes, respectively. Considering the noise
of interface circuits, the gyroscope system sensitivity can reach 14.2mv/o/s, theoretically.
Abstract: The thickness of the process equipment increases in proportion to pressure for the methane
hydrate transportation and storage. The pressure is one of the most important factors, because a
material must be selected in the way of proper pressure and temperature to design the process
equipment. Therefore, we tried to figure out whether the phase equilibrium temperature & pressure
can be applied to the designed temperature and pressure or not, and carried out the thickness
calculation of the pure methane hydrate container in accordance with “Boiler and Pressure Vessel
Code - Division I of Section VIII, ASME”. Also, we studied on the effect of the container’s thickness
using the results of the phase equilibrium temperature and pressure measurement including the
inhibitor and promoter of the methane hydrate on some related references.

to nonlinear wave loads that are produced in random seas. Firstly the effects of the non-linear waveinduced
bending moment on the fatigue damage of ship structure with very large bow flare are
presented in short-term prediction by the method of spectrum analysis. Then, the fatigue damage is
estimated and analyzed in the given environment of long-term.
