3. CFD Analysis of Oxygen and Carbon Dioxide Recovery during Ventilation in Municipal Confined Space

Yan Liu, Cong Tan, Dongliang Liu
Pages: 178 - 185
Confined space is a special working place. To ensure the safety, the forced ventilation must be carried out before entering the confined space. In this paper, ventilation process in municipal heating confine space is simulated by CFD numerical simulation method, and the distribution of temperature, oxygen...

4. Monster Cows and the Doing of Modern Biotechnology in Sweden: An Intersectional Risk Analysis Confined Space

Anna Olofsson, Susanna Öhman
Pages: 186 - 196
In this article, the aim is to analyse how the insemination of images of a cow is entangled with perceptions of gene technology through the ‘doing’ of risk, nature, periphery and gender in Sweden. Two types of data have been used; the 1996 Eurobarometer survey on public opinion and a corpus of articles...

5. Path Optimization in Dynamic Adverse Weathers

Mingkong Zhang, Xiaobing Hu, Jianqin Liao
Pages: 197 - 205
As we all know, weather condition is constantly changing. Then, when an adverse weather event occurs during travelling period, path planning becomes a dynamic path optimization (DPO) problem. A common practice of DPO is to conduct real-time online path optimization based on the current weather condition....

6. The Response Characteristics of Xilingol Grassland to Uneven Distribution of Precipitation at Temporal and Spatial Scale

Qiaofeng Zhang, Hongbo Yu, Guixiang Liu, Yuhai Bao
Pages: 206 - 212
Precipitation is the most important source of water supply, which has important significance on the vegetation growth, also is an important factor affecting the drought severity in Xilingol grassland. Based on the precipitation of 15 weather stations and MODIS MOD13A3 NDVI data, Pearson correlation analysis...

7. Public Risk Perception and Risk Communication of Typhoon Disaster

Zhihai Shang, Liping Li
Pages: 213 - 220
Public risk perception is the basis for effective natural disaster risk communication, and the latter can strongly influence the former. Take typhoon disaster as an example, this paper constructs the theory model of 12 factors affecting risk perception from three dimensions by public individual characteristics,...
