    The widespread Cenozoic magmatism in the Red RiverAilaoshan tectonic zone is closely related to the IndianEurasian plate collision orogeny. Zircon UPb dating results of two granitic samples exposed in the middle part of the Ailaoshan metamorphic belt are 26.2 ± 0.5 Ma and 26.8 ± 0.5 Ma, respectively. This indicates that the Ailaoshan metamorphic zone is not entirely attributed to the Proterozoic crystalline basement of the Yangtze block, while it also contains Cenozoic magmatic rocks. Zircon εHf(t)values of the samples range from +0.3 to +6.9 and from -9.8 to -0.7 with mean values of +3.4 and -4.3, respectively and their corresponding twostage Hf model ages TDM2 range from 526 to 853 Ma and from 903 to 1 355 Ma. The high εHf(t) granites were derived from partial melting of juvenile crust induced by the asthenospheric mantle heat source, while low εHf(t) granites from Proterozoic metamorphic sandstones of the Ailaoshan group. In combination with previous research results, we suggest that the Red River fault has cut across the lithosphere mantle. In SE Asia, the Gaoligongshan and Ailaoshan strikeslip shear zones on both sides of Indosinian block dismembered different blocks and created conditions for their Oligocene extrusion to the southeast.

    The Mituosi(MTS) profile in Yunxian, Hubei of China was served to investigate pedostratigraphy and sedimentary characteristics of the first river terrace of the upper Hanjiang river. Magnetic susceptibility, grainsize distribution, loss on ignition and Rb/Sr were analyzed. The MTS profile recorded the environmental evolution with the stratigraphic series from bottom to top: Malan Loess (L1)→ Transitional Loess (Lt)→ Paleosol (S0)→ Holocene Loess (L0)→ Top soil (TS). Different stratigraphic units show different degree of weathering intensity, with S0>Lt>L0>L1. The weathering intensity change of MTS profile indicates the climate change since Malan loess accumulation. It was cold and arid with gradually intensified southeast monsoon during the early Holocene. The strongest monsoon occurred in the midHolocene. During the late Holocene, the climate became drying with the monsoon recession. A cold climate event was recorded in MTS profile, dating to around 6.48 Ka BP (OSL dating).

    In order to mimic the in vivo 3D micro environment and compare proliferation rate of adipose derived stem cells (ADSCs) on 2D and 3D aligned nanofiber sheets, 3D aligned poly(caprolactone) (PCL) fiber scaffolds were prepared by improving the collector for electrospinning. The fibers were around capillaries in diameter of 300 μm, which were aligned very well and with fiber diameter in the range of 300~400 nm. After surface modification, ADSCs were seeded and it was found these cells were spread very well. Regardless 2D or 3D scaffolds, on aligned fibers cells were nearly all aligned along the fiber direction. When compared with that on 2D membranes, cells proliferated faster on 3D fiber scaffolds, showing the higher potential of 3D fiber scaffolds to be applied for tissue engineering applications.

    The deep metro excavation will lead to the deformation of adjacent pipelines. Knowing the influence of excavation construction on pipelines has significant meanings for controlling the deformation of pipelines effectively and reducing construction risks. Based on the actual measurement data of some excavation of Xiamen line 1, parametric analysis is applied to the influence of excavation on adjacent pipelines by using the finite element method with the consideration of soil small strain stiffness characteristics. The influential zone of adjacent pipelines is divided combined with control standards on deformation. The study shows that burial depth of pipelines, compared to the horizontal distance of which from excavation, has a larger influence to the maximum settlement of pipelines. The maximum deformation of pipelines has considerable correlation to stratum deformation outside the excavation. The stiffness between pipeline and soil has limited restrictions to the soil displacement. The axial force will increase as the horizon distance from excavation declines. The larger axis stiffness and sectional area are, the bigger the axial force is. With overall consideration of pipelines horizontal distance, burial depth and other factors, the influence of excavation on adjacent pipelines can be divided into main influence area(Ⅰ), minor influence area(Ⅱ), general influence area(Ⅲ) and weak influence area(Ⅳ).

    In geotechnical engineering, agricultural engineering and hydraulic and hydro-Power Engineering etc., many problems such as long-term stability of dam and slope, could be regarded as the plane strain issue. Hence, these questions are always figured out though as the plane creep tests, which are more suitable to the engineering conditions. In order to deeply investigate the plane creep properties of loess soil, a series of laboratory consolidated plane creep tests of loess are conducted by a reformed plane creepmeter in this paper, and the tests results show that the deformation of plane creep is dramatic under high water content, high deviatoric stress and low consolidation condition. Base on the analysis of experimental data, a new empirical model is proposed. In addition, it is found that the two existed models named SinghMitchell and Mesri models, which are usually utilized to model the creep problems of soils, are not suitable for loess in the plane strain condition. However, the model proposed in this paper can better describe the creep proprieties of loess in the plane strain condition, due to its merits in both higher accuracy and fewer parameters.

    The geometry structures, electronic properties and hydrogen storage properties of Si5 and Li2Si5 clusters are investigated by using the hybrid density functional theory (DFT) B3LYP method at 6.311+G(d, p) set basis level. Our results indicate that the lowest energy structure of Si5 cluster is a three-dimensional cage, and it can not efficiently store hydrogen molecules for Si5 cage by the same method. It will remarkably improve the hydrogen storage capacity coated by Li atoms. The Si5 cage coated by two Li atoms (Li2Si5) can store up to 10 H2 molecules, in which every Li atom can efficiently adsorb five H2 molecules, corresponding to a maximum mass fraction of 11.554% with an average adsorption energies of 7.259~11.330 kJ/mol per H2 molecule. The results demonstrate that Li decorated Si5 cage can serve as an ideal hydrogen storage material under ambient conditions.

    The Big Bang-Big Crunch (BB-BC) algorithm is an optimization technique of swarm intelligence based on the Big Bang theory. It runs efficiently and can be realized simply, but it is easily trapped in local optimal results. For the purpose of overcoming its shortages, an improved BB-BC algorithm is put forward in this essay, with the changes of the reduced forms of blast radius, the distribution of the random variable, and the treatment of the boundary conditions. Besides, the improved algorithm is applied in damage detection of a simply supported beam with 10 and 20 elements respectively. The numerical simulations indicate that the identified results are excellent even in the great influence of noise, especially for successive elements with tiny damage. A conclusion can be drawn that the improved BBBC algorithm can precisely detect structure damage, and would not be easily trapped into local optimal.

    PPR were prepared with supported β-nucleating agent in this paper, the isothermal crystallization behavior and melting characteristics of PPR and β-PPR were studied with Differential Scanning Calorimeter (DSC). The isothermal crystallization kinetics of PPR and β-PPR were examined by Avrami model. It is indicated that the addition of supported β-nucleating agent improve the crystallization rate of PPR apparently and shorten the half crystallization time. Furthermore, the isothermal crystallization behavior of β-PPR depend little on the crystallization temperature and it mainly formed β-crystal. It is apt to form β-crystal for PPR when crystallization at low temperature.

    Litopenaeus vannamei is a major farmed shrimp species in the world, suffering serious losses because of hepatopancreas necrosis syndrome (HPNS) in recent years. The outbreak of HPNS is believed to be correlated with toxic chemical and physical factors as well as opportunistic pathogens. In 2015, we detected the concentration of ammonia, nitrite and nitrate nitrogen in 43 shrimp ponds of a aquaculture farm in Dianbai county, Guangdong province, China. In the first 22 days of breeding, the concentration of ammonia nitrogen ranged from 0.01 to 0.30 mg·L-1, while nitrite nitrogen was below 0.01 mg·L-1. The concentration of nitrate nitrogen ranged from 0.01 to 0.60 mg·L-1, with a similar tendency to that of ammonia nitrogen. During 22 to 72 days of breeding, the concentration of ammonia nitrogen increased from 0.30 mg·L-1 to 1.50 mg·L-1 in volatility. Unlike ammonia nitrogen, the nitrite nitrogen and nitrate nitrogen were generally stable, slowly and synchronously rising from 0.01 mg·L-1 to 0.80 mg·L-1. After 72 days of breeding, their concentration all enhanced and fluctuated between 0.60 mg·L-1 and 1.50 mg·L-1. Compared with the change of nitrite nitrogen, the sharp fluctuation of ammonia nitrogen was occurred about 26 days in advance. Moreover, we also detected the concentration of ammonia nitrogen after the zeolite and fertilizer were added in five shrimp ponds during breeding. The concentration of ammonia nitrogen was reduced by 19.50% at 1 day and reduced by 37.54% at 2 days after fertilizer addition. After adding zeolite powder, ammonia nitrogen was decreased by 47.62%,23.34%,60.73% and 76.58% in 4 days,respectively. Results also showed that the feed amount was positive correlated with the concentration of ammonia, nitrite and nitrate nitrogen (P<0.01). In summary, this study showed that the ammonia nitrogen was the limiting factor in closed culture of L. vannamei during the middle and late culture period, greatly influenced by climate. Besides, nitrite nitrogen was the restrictive factor, especially in the late culture period. Considering the tendency of ammonia nitrogen and nitrite nitrogen, the ecological system of closed shrimp culture mode can be divided into early ecosystem, medium ecosystem and late ecosystem.

    Thrips hawaiiensis is an important flower inhabiting thrip pest, widely distributed in the Asian regions. The development, survival and oviposition of T. hawaiiensis on four flower hosts (Rosa rugose, Tulipa gesneriana, Dianthus caryophyllus and Lilium brownie var. viridulum) were studied in this paper, in order to discuss the damage difference and damage mechanism to different plant hosts. The results showed that the shortest developmental period of T. hawaiiensis was on Rosa rugose flower, which needed 10.07 d to complete one generation. The longest was on Lilium brownie var. viridulum flower, which needed 11.22 d to complete one generation. The highest survival rate was on T. gesneriana flower, while the lowest was on D. caryophyllus flower, with the values of 0.76 and 0.64, respectively. According to different treatments for oviposition in short time, we found that T. gesnerian flower was the most preferred host for oviposition by T. hawaiiensis, while Lilium brownie var. viridulum flower was the least preferred host. In summary, according to the performance of development, survival and oviposition of T. hawaiiensis on the four flower hosts, T. gesnerianawas the most suitable host for T. hawaiiensis, while L. browniivar. viridulum was the least.

    A DJ strain with a high efficience of feather-degrading capability was isolated from the soil of feather waste by the enrichment culture and the screening process.The strain was identified as Streptomyces sp. according to morphologic observation, 16S rDNA sequence alignment, and phylogenetic trees analysis. After fermenting at 32 ℃ for 10 days, the feather degradation rate reached 50%, and the feather hydrolysate was found to contain amino acids. The protease produced by the DJ strain had a maximal activity at 45 ℃, and the optimum reactive pH at 10.0. The protease displayed a higher hydrolysis activity to feather than Alcalase and Papain, and had a strong hydrolysis ability to the hydrophobic or hydrophilic natural substrates. The results indicated that the DJ strain and its protease was of potential application prospects.
