Two Papers by Beihang Scholars Published in Nature’s Sub-journals Successively
Release time:April 3, 2024

Recently, two papers by Beihang scholars have been published in the sub-journals of Nature successively.

On March 27, Professor Tao Fei's team was invited to publish a paper titled "Advancements and challenges of digital twins in industry" in Nature Computational Science. This paper summarizes the latest research and application progress of digital twins in the industrial field at home and abroad, deeply analyzes the problems and challenges in the theoretical research and industrial practice of digital twins, and points out the future development direction. Professor Tao Fei, postdoctoral fellow Zhang He, and doctoral student Zhang Chenyuan are the authors of this article, Professor Tao Fei is the corresponding author, and Beihang University is the first unit.

On March 29, Professor Chang Lingqian's team reported a flexible, biodegradable, self-powered electronic bandage that can provide dual electrostimulation, synergistically accelerate and improve intestinal wound healing, and significantly reduce postoperative complications. The related achievements, titled "Accelerated internal wound healing via dual electrical stimulation from a soft and biodegradable electronic band", were published in Nature Electronics. Doctoral student Wu Han, Dr. Wang Yuqiong, and Dr. Li Hu from the School of Biological Science and Medical Engineering of Beihang University are the first authors, while Professor Chang Lingqian, Assistant Professor Wang Liu from Beihang University and Professor Yu Cunjiang from Pennsylvania State University are the corresponding authors. Beihang University is the first unit.

The research by Professor Tao Fei's team analyzes the shortcomings or misconceptions in the current understanding and recognition of digital twins, explores several future development directions and challenges of industrial digital twins, and points out that future digital twins will further intersect and integrate with theories from disciplines such as reliability, complex systems engineering, and quantum mechanics, in order to better serve the needs of new industrialization and new productive forces.

Professor Chang Lingqian's team has developed a self-powered electronic bandage made of flexible and biodegradable materials that can accelerate intestinal wound healing. This flexible and biodegradable self-powered electronic bandage provides a promising pathway for accelerating wound healing using a dual electrostimulation strategy.
