Dynamic Response Characteristics of the Electric Domain Structure of Ferroelectric Materials to the Surrounding Rock Structure of a Heavy-Duty Railway with a Small-Clearance Crossing Tunnel

At present, the world-wide heavy-haul transportation technology of cargo trains has developed rapidly. Heavy-haul railway transportation has received extensive attention due to its large capacity, high efficiency, and low transportation costs. In order to understand the role that ferroelectric materials can play in the dynamic response of a heavy-duty railway surrounding rock structures in crosstunnels, this article introduces the domain structure of ferroelectric materials, derives the calculation method of the dynamic response of the surrounding rock structure, simulates the dynamic response characteristics through the corresponding formula, and analyzes the changes of the heavy-duty railway in the presence and absence of water. The situation was analyzed. The research results found that the increase of axle load will increase the bending moment of the invert structure. When the axle load is 30 t, the V-class surrounding rock is the most unfavorable working condition and the bending moment value of the invert structure is the largest at this time. When the added value of contact pressure is generally around 6.5 kPa, the railway as a whole can maintain a stable state.

Influence of New Energy Materials on Dynamic Interaction between Surrounding Rock and Structure of Heavy-Duty Railway in Small Clearance Crossing Tunnel

In the rapid development of urban traffic, the small clearance interchange tunnel has always been a difficult problem for heavy-duty railways, so special requirements are also put forward for materials. Bainite steel with excellent comprehensive mechanical properties is considered to replace traditional high manganese, the best material for steel. This article first improves the process of the material and analyzes the structural dynamics of the material through different isothermal cooling to analyze the different performances of the material on the heavy-duty railway. Using traditional theoretical data analysis, theoretical data calculation, numerical analysis simulation, and on-site engineering monitoring technical means is to complement the construction of the soft rock underground tunnel in the subway section at the intersection of the small clear distance line to the existing surrounding rock tunnel wall in the section. The degree of deformation affects the change law, and the related technical issues of engineering control are analyzed. Finally, the control measures of full-face grouting reinforcement with steel flower pipes and the final construction plan of constructing the left line, right line, and undercut section in sequence are proposed. FLAC numerical simulation software was used to complete the feasibility evaluation of the control measures for the deformation of the ground and lining induced by the construction of the cross tunnel. The results show that the maximum deformation of the ground surface is reduced by 35.4% compared with no control measures, and the longitudinal deformation range of the ground surface and the vault is reduced by 28.9%.

Investigate the Mechanical Properties of Soybean Oil Reinforced with ATH-Filled Polyester-Based Hybrid Nanocomposites

A mixed microbiologically composite made from natural Linum usitatissimum fibers with nano-reinforced organic plastics can improve properties while being environmentally friendly. The inclusion of aluminium tris hydroxide particles into an organic polymer enables it to maintain stiffness without sacrificing durability, even while improving barriers and material characteristics. A study of numerous composite samples verified this complementary effect, with combinations including 10 percent EMS and 2.6 wt.% ATH retaining the resin’s stiffness, stress to breakage, and mechanical properties while improving durability. Mechanical tests such as tensile and impact strength were discovered using the conventional ASTM test plan. Best-practice designs which maximize constituent interactions are thus attainable, and the research findings serve as the basis for discovering this balance, thereby broadening the spectrum of microbiologically polymer nanocomposites. The cracked surfaces of the nanomaterials, and the amount of dispersion of an ATH filler, were examined using a scanning electron microscope.

A Low-Voltage Hybrid CMOS-Memristor-Based Wideband Class-AB Amplifier for Portable Electronic Device Applications

This paper presents a low-voltage high-gain wideband three-stage true-class-AB amplifier. This is realized in the 0.18 μm CMOS process. The three-stage class-AB amplifier is proposed based on a compensation topology called nested Miller compensation along with a memristor to get pole-zero cancellation, which arises beyond the unity gain frequency. The circuit is implemented without the need for extra components as transistors, resistors, and capacitors, thus saving the complexity of the circuit and power consumption. The circuit is designed to operate with a supply voltage of ±1 V along with a bias current of 175 μA. The simulation results indicate that this proposed amplifier is capable of driving wide range of resistive and capacitive loads, furthermore capable of maintaining a phase margin of more than 60°. The total compensation capacitor is 2 pF, which is much lesser as compared to pseudo- and true-class AB amplifier, which implies a reduction in area. Simulation results show that the unity gain frequency of the proposed class-AB amplifier is 136.7 MHz, which is much higher as compared to the counterpart topologies. The major advantage associated with this work is a very high bandwidth attained without affecting the gain of the amplifier.
