  • Mathematical modeling of the thermal regime of premises

    A review of methods for calculating microclimate parameters is performed. The possibility of using existing mathematical models to describe the aerodynamic characteristics of ventilation valves and optimize their performance indicators: productivity, hydraulic resistance, density, response time and other parameters that form their efficiency is considered. In order to assess the correspondence of the obtained mathematical dependencies, a physical experiment was conducted. The adequacy of the mathematical model was verified by comparing the results of calculating the parameters of the internal environment in the SolidWorks software and computing complex with experimental data.

  • Redevelopment of industrial territories according to BREEAM standard

    In the past few years, such objects have begun to be taken outside the city limits and rebuilt in new, undeveloped territories. And on the vacated territory, a new development begins with the intensive development of underground space. The strategic innovative approach to the implementation of projects for the development of the modern city released by the industrial territory is an urgent answer to the question of a completely new understanding of the comfortable environment, in which everything is involved: zoning of the development territory, laying new roads (city streets), underground structures and communications, transport accessibility, environmental friendliness of construction. Without understanding that the problem of forming a living space is complex, in the end, comfortable conditions of human existence will not be obtained. Various modern green building standards are based on this.

  • Investigation of the bottom and bottom structures of the shallow sea

    The problem of studying the peculiarities of sound propagation in shallow seas is an urgent task of hydroacoustics, since it is associated with human production activities in coastal zones and waters of shallow seas. A shallow sea for a sound field is a waveguide in which certain modes propagate. Features such as "extinction" modes and dispersion distort the picture of the sound field. There is also a complex interference situation due to reverberation interference and multiple re-reflections. To avoid information loss, it is proposed to use narrowly directed parametric radiation without side lobes. The issues of equipment selection are considered, the law of temporary automatic gain control (TAGC) for the study of bottom layers is calculated. The results of the analysis of echograms for depths of 1-2 m are presented. The possibility of identifying layers and anomalies is shown.

  • Mathematical, algorithmic and software support for the problem of calculating control actions based on fuzzy logic when simulating the movement of a load in a portal crane simulator

    The article is devoted to the development of models and algorithms for calculating control (advisory) actions when training operators of technological processes (on the example of reloading processes and, in particular, portal cranes) on computer training complexes (CTC). A complex of models and algorithms is proposed, based on which control actions are calculated regarding discrete crane controls and the possibility of moving the load to a target position with minimization of oscillations at the end point is provided. These models and algorithms use variable parameters of the technological process, described by linguistic variables, and customizable characteristics of crane models and engines, which allows calculating control actions depending on the type of crane, the specifics of the technological process, the training methodology used for operators and other significant factors. Application of the advisory system based on the developed models and algorithms promotes to improve the training process for operators of reloading cranes at CTC and, as a result, to reduce the probability of emergency situations, reduce time and energy costs.

  • Investigation of the dependence of the error in the approximate solution of the Laplace equation on the mean minimum sine of the angle of the cells of the computational grid

    The paper studies the issue of the influence of the quality of the computational triangular grid on the accuracy of calculations in various computational problems. There is a well-known example of Schwartz, which shows that the approximation of a smooth surface by a polyhedral surface can give very large errors for calculating the surface area. This is due to the quality of the constructed triangulation of the surface. Therefore, it is natural to expect that there is some connection between a certain triangulation characteristic and the accuracy of solving some computational problem. In the presented article, as such a characteristic, a value is chosen - the average value of the minimum sine of the angle of all triangles of the computational grid. In the course of numerical experiments, the Dirichlet problem for the Laplace equation in a circular ring was solved, in which the error of the approximate solution was calculated (the gradient descent method was used to find a solution to the corresponding variational problem.). For the ring, a series of triangulations was constructed with a uniform division along the angle and a non-uniform division along the radius in polar coordinates. In this example, a linear dependence of the error on was shown. The article presents both the results of the calculation with different values ​​and the calculation of the correlation coefficient of the studied quantities.

  • Influence of external side elements on the condition of the cylindrical mesh shell

    The condition of a metal cylindrical mesh shell with external horizontal trusses is investigated. The basic principles of forming the structure are considered, taking into account the use of a support rib to align the faces of a mesh surface. The analysis of important force factors and deformation parameters of the reinforced shell is carried out taking into account all possible combinations of loads. The regularities of the system operation are determined and the influence of the location of the support trusses on the behavior of the structure is estimated. Vulnerable areas with maximum longitudinal forces in the elements and the greatest displacements of nodes were identified. An increase in stiffness outside the shell plane in the transverse direction was obtained and a positive redistribution of forces over the surface was recorded. An acceptable result was established from the point of view of ensuring the stability of the structure and the increased resistance of the shell to deformation was noted.
