    Aimed at the underwater multi-cable multi-body towed system, a mathematical model and the corresponding numerical solution are proposed to predict and analyze its dynamic characteristics in various conditions. The model consists of three parts: the governing equation of cables is given based on the lumped mass method; the underwater towed body, as a key part of the system, is accurately described by the 6 degree-of-freedom governing equations for submarines; the other tiny towed body in the system is simplified as a mass point and is incorporated into the cable node governing equation because of its small dimension. Coupling boundary conditions for towed cable and body are given to unite the three parts together, which is numerically solved by using the 4th order Runge-Kutta integration method. Finally, numerical simulations for a four-cable and two-body towed system are conducted to study its dynamic response in various conditions, and some conclusions are drawn from the results.

    This paper offers an integrated model-based and data-driven early fault detection scheme for a ship rudder electro-hydraulic servo system (RESS). First, the state equation of RESS is established, the common faults in the system are analyzed, and the uncertain factors in the system are classified. To reduce the influences of various uncertainties, a hybrid processing method with several steps is proposed next. Using the system input and output data in normal state, the uncertain model parameters can be identified, and then a robust fault detection observer is designed to eliminate the influences of system inherent nonlinearity and unknown external force. To deal with the remaining uncertainties and disturbances, a neural network based compensation model using actual and observed system data is constructed, which can further reduce the influences of uncertainties and to detect the early faults effectively. Both simulation and experimental results show that the combined method is efficient and can be used for on-line fault detection.

    A series production system consisting of multiple processes and facility was studied considering degradation process as a random process in line with Gamma distribution. Opportunistic maintenance was introduced when preventive maintenance (PM) was conducted to reduce system downtime. Maintenance time was regarded as a function of degradation degree and maintenance times. A degradation degree recovery factor was used to describe the evolution process of facility degradation degree before and after maintenance. Considering the generalized time value, cost function of facility and system model was established according to the decision of maintenance and replacement based on cost-effectiveness and availability. The numerical example optimized the maintenance thresholds and calculated the replacement time and PM times of each facility. The results show that the generalized time value can accelerate the aging of facility, shorten service life, and provide a new idea for enterprise to make maintenance and replacement policy.

    In order to understand the flow and heat transfer characteristics of phase change slurry, the floating and melting process of an ice particle in water is numerically studied. The free-floating process of an ice particle under various forces is numerically modelled, and the melting process of solid particle is described by enthalpy-porous method. The model is implemented to study the floating and non-uniform melting process of an ice particle at different temperature variations and internal supercooling degrees. The morphological change of ice particle and the thermo-fluidic characteristics during floating and melting process are obtained. It is found that the internal supercooling degree of ice particle delays the melting of ice particle.

    A transient thermal liquid crystal experiment and the numerical simulation were conducted on the three-channel swirling cooling structure inside the turbine blade. The results were compared with those of the ordinary turning channel at when Reynolds number is 40000. By conducting the transient experiment, high precision distribution of Nusselt numbers and the pressure loss along the channel were obtained. Combined with the numerical calculation results, the following conclusions were drawn: the swirl channel significantly enhanced the heat transfer capacity and the heat transfer uniformity of the system. Compared with the ordinary turning channel, the average Nusselt numbers on the wall of the second and third processes were increased by 60% and 57%, respectively. The impact loss and the throttling loss at the turning position were the main pressure losses of the three-channel structure. The pressure coefficient of the whole system of the swirl channel was about three times that of the ordinary turning channel, and it increased with Reynolds number. Numerical calculation indicated that the total pressure loss in the swirl channel was reduced by 25% compared with the static pressure loss. It was more scientific and reasonable to use the total pressure to analyze the pressure coefficient along the channel.

    To explore the ignition characteristics of methane/air mixture generated by the pre-chamber turbulent jets, experimental studies were conducted in a large bore constant volume chamber. The flame image batch processing was conducted by using MATLAB software to obtain the flame characteristic parameters. By analyzing the pressure variations and flame images taken by a high-speed camera, the effects of air-fuel equivalence ratios and pre-mixed pressures on jet flame ignition process and flame propagation were studied. The results show that the jet flames in the main chamber are asymmetry, which can be even worse when the air-fuel equivalence ratio is lower due to the asymmetric orientation of the spark plug. As the initial pressure or air-fuel equivalence ratios increase, the flame propagation becomes slower. Furthermore, with the lower air-fuel equivalence ratio (λ=08), the flame propagation tends to be more sensitive to the back pressure variation.

    Aiming at the problem of allocation accuracy and computational efficiency of X-rudder autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) attitude control with four independent rudder blades, an improved quadratic programming algorithm is proposed to reduce the calculation amount while satisfying the allocation accuracy. The Lagrange multiplier method is used to replace the smooth Newton method used in the sequence quadratic programming method to optimize the solution calculation. The method effectively reduces the iterative cycle calculation while preserving the calculation accuracy of sequence quadratic programming. The results of X-rudder AUV motion control in the simulation environment show that the improved control allocation algorithm can reduce the calculation time by 40%, and the control allocation deviation is not more than 003N·m. The effect of AUV attitude control is good.

    Fluoridating holds considerable promising for improving thermos stability of calcium-deficient hydroxyapatite with reserving pristine good biocompatibility and bio-activity. In this paper, synthetic products and their thermo stability are studied with different fluorine additions under the same chemical precipitation condition by X-ray diffraction (XRD). Dicalcium phosphate dihydrate (DCPD) is the main product with few hydroxyapatite (HA) when no fluorine is added; mixture of calcium-deficient fluoridated hydroxyapatite (D-FHA) and DCPD appears in products when fluorine is added, and only D-FHA remains in products of Sample 04F. Influence of fluorine on the synthetic process is proved to accelerate the transformation from DCPD to D-FHA. Synthetic products are further sintered to investigate the thermo stability. Dehydration occurs only in Sample 00F and Sample 02F when heated at 200℃, which does not appear in Samples 04F—10F. D-FHA of Sample 04F begins to decompose into β-Ca3(PO4)2 and β-Ca2P2O7 at 600℃. The temperature of D-FHA decomposition rises and the stability improves with the increasing fluorine addition.
