  • Modeling special aspects of wood density changing in the longitudinal direction of the tree trunk in the calculation of the weight of the cargo transported by the forest machine

    Justification of the parameters and compiling of the forest machine chassis can not be performed without determining the weight of the load. The weight of the load depends on the wood density. The wood density within the growing tree is heterogeneous. The aim of this study is to develop mathematical models to calculate the average density of the tree trunk area depending on its location in the trunk. The research is based on the construction of approximating dependences of changes in the average wood density in the longitudinal direction of the trunk by minimum deviation method. The obtained mathematical models establish the relationship of density changes in the longitudinal direction of the trunk for four forest-forming species of the Republic of Karelia: pine, spruce, birch and aspen.

  • Mathematical models of performance, reliability and operating costs of a system for storing deduplicated data on SSD disks

    The article is devoted to the development of a complex of mathematical models describing the functioning of a data storage system based on solid-state drives using deduplication technology. The mathematical model of the user application generates a load on the system as a stream of requests, randomly sized according to the Pareto law, and with random time interval between requests. Requests are received at the input of the storage system into the network service model, then to the VDO deduplication system model, then to the software RAID model and, finally, to the solid-state drive model for read/write operation. Due to the nature of SSDs, system performance in read and write modes is modeled separately, taking into account the different speed characteristics of RAID-5, RAID-6 and RAID-10 arrays. The mathematical model of the reliability of each RAID array is based on the Kolmogorov-Chapman system of equations for calculating stationary probabilities describing transitions between states in a discrete Markov chain. The durability of the system is determined through the model for assessing the exhaustion of the recording resource of solid-state drives. The mathematical model for estimating the storage cost includes the costs of equipment, resources and maintenance over the entire operation period of the system. The final result is a mathematical formulation of the problem of data storage system optimal design, which allows selecting the system architecture and parameters that are optimal in terms of a combination of factors – reliability, speed and cost of data storage.

  • Network Planning in Road Construction

    The article discusses the method of network planning in road construction as a method of rational resource planning. The calculation of the main indicators of the network graph such as the early start of work, the late start of work, the calculation of the critical path as the probable time of the construction duration is given. Analysis of the network schedule allows you to identify the time reserve for reducing construction time by a reasonable redistribution of resources and equipment. The results of this study will allow at the planning stage to analyze the data and choose the most optimal option for construction from the position of the correct distribution of resources and equipment, as well as their savings. At the stage of construction, it will allow you to monitor and control the progress of construction work, thereby monitoring the flow of funds and achieve savings or the optimal amount of construction without risks. Also, the results of the study will allow, without critical changes, to reduce construction time without changing the sequence of construction technology and without increasing mechanisms and labor costs. Subsequently, the results of the study can serve as the basis for developing a mechanism for optimizing network schedules from the position of the redistribution of teams to carry out construction work, as well as a reasonable combination of works that use the same type of mechanisms.

  • Comparative analysis of conflicts of the Soviet and modern youth space using cognitive modeling

    The article is devoted to the analysis of issues related to conflict interaction in the youth environment of Soviet and Russian society. The aim of the study is to build a cognitive map of the model of the system “Conflict control (youth of the USSR)  conflict control (youth of Russia)”. The authors note that at present there is an urgent need to identify existing conflict situations in the youth environment of Russian society and at the same time it is logical to conduct an analysis based on a study of past years and those problems that were the cause of conflict situations in the youth environment in Soviet times. It is also noted that in modern social practices it is necessary to create effective mechanisms for countering conflicts, aimed primarily at reducing the level of risk in the modern youth environment. The methodological basis of the study. The research methodology is based on the principles of scientific research, as the principle of holism and the principle of objectivism. The work used the methods of systematic and comparative scientific research. Conclusions: in spite of the fact that it is not feasible to fully show all the questions outlined in the framework of one study (a similar goal was not set), the analysis of the processes associated with the study of conflitogenicity in the modern youth environment and the constructed cognitive model are of certain theoretical interest and require further work in the framework of this issue.

  • Modeling of diffusion saturation of austenite with carbon, taking into account the temperature in the cementation process

    Cementation studies focus almost exclusively on the movement of carbon, described through the diffusion equations, often with constant coefficients and without regard to temperature. This approach does not allow, to take into account the further diffusion of carbon into the workpiece in a lower temperature range at the stage preceding quenching. The paper describes the modeling of the diffusion saturation of steel by carbon in the cementation process, taking into account the influence of temperature on the example of a numerical solution of the gear cementation problem using the COMSOL Multiphysics program. It was shown that the finite element mathematical calculation of the process of saturation of austenite with carbon during cementation gives good agreement with experimental data, and finite element analysis methods can be used for multivariate calculation of the carbon content in austenite after diffusion saturation

  • Double-contour geodesic shells with pentahedral pyramids

    Geodesic domes are self-supporting spatial structures without additional supports. Geodesic lines are used when breakdown geodesic shells into elements. In this area, the development of geometric models of double-contour geodesic shells are performed. The features of these works are the use of trihedral and hexagonal pyramidal structures as the first contour. However, for the formation of such structures, pentahedral pyramids can also be used. The aim of the study is to develop a method, algorithm and software for a double-contour geodesic shell with pentahedral pyramids. To achieve this goal, the principle of duality, methods of analytical geometry in space and programming in the GDL language built into ArchiCAD were applied. As a result, a parametric ArchiCAD object of a two-contour geodesic shell with pentahedral pyramids was developed. It can be used in architectural and structural design of unique buildings.
