Today, the problem of global climate change and the associated degradation of permafrost is a priority area of research. In the regions of the Far North, a change in temperature by half a degree contributes to the emergence of geocryological dangers: the appearance of ravines, thermokarst subsidence, heaving, the formation of residential ice and, as a result, the destruction of houses and infrastructure. In Russia, the permafrost zone occupies about 63-65% of its territory and extends for thousands of kilometers. Various engineering and geological impacts, including man-made ones, represent a serious geocryological hazard and can lead to degradation of frozen soils in various regions. Due to the rapid thawing of ice and climate change, collapses and voids form on frozen soils. Also, when thawing permafrost, a large amount of groundwater is formed and there is a risk of salinization of nearby water and coastal zones. This can lead to the loss of resources that are necessary for the life of the local population, as well as for the economy of the region. Despite the fact that there are numerous programs and studies on this topic, a huge amount of work has not yet been carried out in Russia to eliminate geocryological threats.

The article is devoted to the study of crowd behavior in public buildings during a fire. A method for evaluating the effectiveness of organizing the evacuation of people from a public building is proposed, which makes it possible to take into account the spread of panic among evacuees. The method is based on the development of an evacuation simulation model that takes into account the impact of certain factors on the degree of people's panic, which implements an agent-based approach. The proposed method allows, when describing the psycho-emotional behavior of each agent separately in the process of evacuation, to evaluate the effectiveness of organizing the evacuation of the crowd as a whole. The simulation results on the example of a shopping and entertainment center show that possible panic conditions of evacuees can affect the efficiency of evacuation.

Outlier detection is an important area of data research in various fields. The aim of the study is to provide a non-exhaustive overview of the features of using methods for detecting outliers in data based on various machine learning techniques: supervised, unsupervised, semi-supervised. The article outlines the features of the application of certain methods, their advantages and limitations. It has been established that there is no universal method for detecting outliers suitable for various data, therefore, the choice of a particular method for the implementation of research should be made based on an analysis of the advantages and limitations inherent in the chosen method, with the obligatory consideration of the capabilities of the available computing power and the characteristics of the available data, in including those including their classification into outliers and normal data, as well as their volume.

Models of open-loop and closed-loop systems for automatic control of air supply to a steam boiler are constructed. An open-loop system is modeled and, on its basis, a closed-loop system with a PI controller tuned to the optimum modulo is developed. The introduction of a frequency converter into the control system for more economical and gentle operation of the fan electric drive is considered. The developed system consists of models of a controller, a frequency converter, an asynchronous motor and a blower fan. The simulation results are presented, demonstrating the operability of the resulting system in compliance with the requirements for stability and speed. The modernized closed system has a number of advantages over the existing open one, and the described method of its construction can be applied when implemented at enterprises using air blowers.

One of the actual problems in the field of analysing loads and impacts on bearing structures is their identification. It means the point of application, the type of action and its intensity in cases where there is an impact result, but the parameters that caused this result are not determined. For example, it is an accident action, as a result of which the structure is deformed and collapsed. The solution of such problems arises when analysing accidents on load-bearing structures in construction, as well as when monitoring the deformed state of structures in time. The paper proposes to use the principles of neural network modelling to solve the problem of identifying the impact in the form of a concentrated force on the example of beam systems. The values of linear and angular nodal displacements at some action are considered as input data to neurons. As an example, the linearly deformable beam of constant stiffness is considered, the material of which is a continuous isotropic medium.

The article is devoted to the study of problematic issues of the formation of organizational and technical systems of the "cyberpolygons" class using the original methodological apparatus for the feasibility study of system engineering solutions for their construction. The features of existing approaches to the justification of system engineering solutions for the construction of organizational and technical systems, information technology and technical systems are considered. Directions for their development are proposed, taking into account the dynamics of the phased creation and modernization of organizational and technical systems with simultaneously developing infrastructure projects and solutions. Formal aspects in the methodological apparatus are reflected in the change in the composition of the functional components in the conceptual and analytical models, the corresponding formal descriptions of their relationships and characteristics, as well as in the modification of the procedures for the technical and economic assessment of options for building a cyberpolygon. The method of technical and economic evaluation of options for constructing a cyberpolygon proposed in this study makes it possible to rank alternative options for the infrastructures of the created cyberpolygon according to the value of their technical and economic efficiency and to select the rational one from them.

The article discusses the methods and approaches developed by the authors for the recommendation system, which are aimed at improving the quality of rehabilitation of the patient during respiratory training. To describe the training, we developed our own language for a specific subject area, as well as its grammar and syntax analyzer. Thanks to this language, it is possible to build a devereve describing a specific patient's training. Two main methods considered in the article are applied to the resulting tree: "A method for analyzing problem areas during training by patients" and "A method for fuzzy search of similar areas in training". With the help of these methods, it is proposed to analyze the problem areas of patients' training during rehabilitation and look for similar difficult areas of the patient to select similar exercises in order to maintain the level of diversity of tasks and involve the patient in the process.
