    We present a 3D inversion method to recover density distribution from gravity data in space domain. Our method firstly employs 3D correlation image of the vertical gradient of gravity data as a starting model to generate a higher resolution image for inversion. The 3D density distribution is then obtained by inverting the correlation image of gravity data... More

    The laws of thermodynamics have been developed for inert matter, and living matter has not been considered as a variable in these laws. Living matter possesses properties that have had major effects on biosphere evolution with time. The zeroth property is “Living matter is produced from living matter only.” The first property may be summarized... More

    Several cave-in accidents often occur in subway construction, causing personnel and economic losses. This paper has carried on the statistics and analysis of some typical subway construction accidents in recent years. Taking the collapse accident of a subway station in Hangzhou as the engineering background, the causes of the collapse of the foundation pit were... More
