Exploring the Combination Rules of D Numbers From a Perspective of Conflict Redistribution

Authors: Xinyang Deng, Wen Jiang
Comments: 6 Pages.

Dempster-Shafer theory of evidence is widely applied to uncertainty modelling and knowledge reasoning because of its advantages in dealing with uncertain information. But some conditions or requirements, such as exclusiveness hypothesis and completeness constraint, limit the development and application of that theory to a large extend. To overcome the shortcomings and enhance its capability of representing the uncertainty, a novel model, called D numbers, has been proposed recently. However, many key issues, for example how to implement the combination of D numbers, remain unsolved. In the paper, we have explored the combination of D Numbers from a perspective of conflict redistribution, and proposed two combination rules being suitable for different situations for the fusion of two D numbers. The proposed combination rules can reduce to the classical Dempster's rule in Dempster-Shafer theory under a certain conditions. Numerical examples and discussion about the proposed rules are also given in the paper.

Effect of Slope and Packing Ratio on the Behavior of Matchsticks Burnings

Authors: Priya Karna, Sunil Karna
Comments: 5 Pages.

The experiment was conducted to demonstrate the behavior of fire propagation on wildland using matchsticks forest model. A model forest was designed on a flame resistance clay, on top of which matchsticks were inserted and kept vertical to the ground by keeping spacing between them constant with the help of aluminum grid. The data for distance traveled by fire with time was taken at wide range of slopes from downhill of -25^o to uphill of 45^o on model forests of packing ratios of 0.08 and 0.04. The minimum rate of fire spread was observed around 15^o downhill. The data collected from this experiment follows nature of tan^2(theta) and agrees with Rothermel mathematical model of fire propagation except at high elevation above 35^o for low packing ratio.
