Genetic Programming Approach for Predicting Service Life of Tunnel Structures Subject to Chloride-Induced Corrosion
Publication date: Available online 5 July 2019Source: Journal of Advanced ResearchAuthor(s): Wei Gao, Xin Chen, Dongliang ChenAbstractA new method for predicting the service life of tunnel structures subject to chloride-induced corrosion using data from real engineering examples and genetic programming (GP) is proposed. As a data-driven method, the new approach can construct explicit expressions of the prediction model. The new method was verified by comparing it with the chloride-ion diffusion model considering eight corrosion influence factors. Moreover, 25 datasets collected from tunnel engineering examples were used to...

Flavonoids from the stems of Millettia pachyloba Drake mediate cytotoxic activity through apoptosis and autophagy in cancer cells
In this study, systematic separation and subsequent pharmacological activity studies were carried out to identify cytotoxic natural products from the dried stems of Millettia pachyloba Drake. Five previously undescribed isoflavones, pachyvones A–E; one previously undescribed xanthone, pachythone A; and twenty-two known compounds were obtained. The structures of these compounds were assigned on the basis of 1D/2D NMR data and high-resolution electrospray ionization mass spectroscopy analysis. Preliminary activity screening with HeLa and MCF-7 cells showed that ten compounds (3–5, 9, 12, 17–19, 24, and 25) ...

Highly biodegradable and bioactive Fe-Pd-bredigite biocomposites prepared by selective laser melting
In this study, novel Fe-palladium (Pd)-bredigite biocomposites were developed by selective laser melting aiming to improve both the degradation behavior and bioactivity of Fe. The results showed that most Pd formed Pd-rich intermetallic phases (IMPs) with a nearly continuous network while the bredigite phase was distributed at the grain boundaries. In addition, a large amount of much nobler IMPs formed micro-galvanic pairs with the Fe matrix, inducing tremendous micro-galvanic corrosion. The IMPs contained a high amount of Pd2+ with a high reduction potential, which further promoted the efficiency of micro-galvanic corrosi...
