  • Development and research of a parametric profiler for the study of layered structure

    The possibility of using nonlinear effects in hydroacoustic systems with parametric radiation mode for profiling the bottom and bottom sediments attracts the attention of both domestic and foreign specialists. The use of parametric antennas in hydroacoustic equipment allows, due to their high directivity and low side field level, to increase the information content and accuracy in detecting and determining the coordinates of underwater objects, and to obtain additional features for recognition. The efficiency of using a parametric profiler for solving problems that require high resolution is justified. A block diagram of a parametric profiler for studying the layered structure is developed. The features of the signal generator and the amplification unit are considered. The characteristics of the radiating antenna were measured under laboratory conditions. It is shown that the directivity characteristic is constant in the operating frequency range and the acoustic power at the output makes it possible to solve the tasks of sounding up to 10 m into the ground. A record of the soil profile was obtained, confirming the operability of the system. In the future, the results will be used in full-scale conditions with the use of cepstral echo processing.

  • Numerical simulation of the dynamics of a pre-modulated electron beam in the drift space of a transit klystron

    It is indicated in the article that the study of the electron bunching process in the drift space of a transit klystron is an urgent task that allows one to establish general laws applicable to more complex models. In this connection, the behavior of the pre-modulated electron beam in the drift space of the transit klystron has been investigated. A numerical model has been implemented that takes into account the effect of space charge fields and the interaction of charged particles with elements of an electrodynamic system. A series of numerical experiments with different values ​​of the current and initial velocities of electrons, as well as their comparison with theoretical data, have been carried out. As a result of numerical experiments, data were obtained that characterize the dynamics of the electron flux in the drift space of the transit klystron at different values ​​of the initial velocity (0.5 s, 0.9 s) and cathode current (10 mA, 1A, 10A).

  • Autonomous power supply of valve assemblies on pipelines

    In the oil industry, autonomous electric power sources containing renewable energy sources are used to power remote consumers with an occasional load, mainly valve assemblies on pipelines. The need for electric energy sources of this type is determined by the need to install valve assemblies at pipeline intersections with water barriers, at intersections with transport arteries, and in a number of other cases. Very often in such places there are no available power lines or substations. In this case, the only alternative is the use of autonomous sources, or the expensive construction of an extended overhead line. In some cases, the developer decides to abandon the overhead line due to its high cost and the need for additional land acquisition. From the point of view of ecology, such a decision in favor of autonomous sources of electric energy also has an additional positive effect. Since the installation of valve assemblies is dictated mainly by environmental considerations, high requirements are placed on the reliability of power supply. Violation of these conditions can lead to hydraulic shocks in the system and possible destruction and breakage of system elements. A wind turbine or solar panels are undoubtedly an independent source of power supply and, when paired with batteries or a diesel generator set, can formally provide high reliability of power supply. On the other hand, there are periods of time when the power of a wind turbine or solar battery is insufficient to supply a given load. As a consequence, the decision on the reliability of power supply should be made on the basis of additional studies of the static and dynamic stability of the entire electrical power generation complex.

  • Research of a multicriteria problem оf decision about selecting a franchise to investment by using method of Fuzzy VICOR

    For a decision maker, the problem is to choose the best franchise on a wide variety of existing Russian and foreign alternatives in the face of uncertainty. For a successful business, a decision maker needs to analyze the data on all the criteria among the selected franchises. In this paper, 5 alternatives- franchises of linguistic centers were considered. To calculate the weights of the importance of the criteria, the hierarchy analysis method was used. By fuzzy criteria using the Fuzzy VICOR method, a comparative analysis of several franchises was conducted. As a result, the best franchise for doing business was revealed. The Fuzzy VICOR method allows to get an effective result even in the conditions of uncertainty of input data.

  • A method for assessing the security of a special purpose automated information system against DDoS attacks based on a theoretical-empirical approach

    A model that implements a method for assessing the security of a special purpose automated information system is considered in the article. The model takes into account both the intensity of the load on the system and the number of channels as a means of protecting information from DDoS attacks based on the combination of theoretical and empirical approaches to assessing security of special purpose automated information system. The transition from a theoretical model using empirical states and continuous time to a discrete time model is applied to build a new model. The purpose of the work is to develop a model that implements a method for assessing the security of a special purpose automated information system against DDoS attacks based on a theoretical-empirical approach to modeling information protection means against DDoS attacks.The following tasks are solved in the article: analysis of known models that implement the method for assessing the security of special purpose automated information system from DDoS attacks; the model which implements a method for assessing the security of special purpose automated information system based on a theoretical-empirical approach to modeling information protection against DDoS attacks is being developed. The use of the new model makes it possible to apply both empirical values obtained as a result of measurements or modeling, and a theoretical basis for modeling information protection means under the influence of DDoS attacks, taking into account their characteristics, which will be reflected by the income function and the choice of the optimal mode of functioning of the special purpose automated information system in discrete moments in time. When synthesizing the models presented in the article, the lack of the static nature of the assessment of the security of the special purpose automated information system was eliminated, the intensity of computer attacks such as DDoS, which dynamically changes both the parameters evaluating the means of protection and the probability of the system being in critical states, was taken into account.

  • Simulation of an automated control system for the galvanization process

    The article deals with the problem of modeling an automated control system for the process of electroplating metal parts. The analysis of literature sources devoted to electroplating is carried out. The problem and process of electroplating metal parts with the use of reverse is considered. The calculated ratios are given to determine the required current (direct, reverse, increased, reversed), the process time and other internal parameters for the galvanization process. The possibility of performing current switching, setting its value and determining the process time, as well as reversing with the help of automation tools is considered on the example of the model. The model allows for given geometrical parameters galvanization details and preset thickness of the plating to calculate the basic control parameters of galvanization process: electroplating current and duration of the electroplating process. The electroplating process model is sensitive to the shape of the electroplated parts and the composition of the electrolyte, so the automated control system must perform model calculations for each type of parts and electrolyte. Graphs of simulation results in the SimInTech software environment obtained by drawing up a block diagram for a model of an automated control system for the process of galvanizing parts are presented.

  • Cognitive models of support and sustainability of professional dynasties

    It is necessary to study the mechanisms of supporting the sustainability and reproduction of professional dynasties in order to better understand the relationship between the constructive and destructive effects of professional dynasties on the development of professional spheres. The most convenient tools for this purpose can serve as a cognitive and simulation modeling. The purpose of this article is to build cognitive models that demonstrate the mechanisms of supporting the stability and maintaining the stability of professional dynasties. The main research method is cognitive modeling. The models are based on the idea of the dual potential of professional dynasties, which is expressed in a deeper and earlier primary professional adaptation and in the formation of a social monopoly. The article presents 4 cognitive models: model of professional self-preservation dynasties through the monopolization of the professional sphere, model resist external destruction of the system, model to reduce the level of prioritization and conflicts with the institutional environment, a general model of the sustainability and development of professional dynasties. Professional dynasties, due to the desire for leaktightness, develop mechanisms that are aimed at the development of dynasties. These mechanisms also serve to support conservation and enhance sustainability. Also, it is necessary to understand the succession strategies of children from professional dynasties by using simulation models. They are based on some factors that are involved in the transmission of the statuses and practices of professional dynasties and were considered in the cognitive models from the article.

  • Vectorization and parallelization of the particle-particle method

    This paper considers the vectorization and parallelization of the "particle-particle" method used to take into account interactions between objects in the mathematical modeling of physical processes, using the example of taking into account the space charge when calculating the dynamics of charged particles. Comparison and estimation of time costs are carried out (as a test problem, the expansion of a multicomponent ion beam during one nanosecond with a step of Δt = 10-12 s was considered), taking into account the acceleration due to vectorization and parallelization between processor cores. It is concluded that the results of the work clearly demonstrate that the vectorization of computations can significantly speed up the computation time, and the explicit replacement of scalar operations with vector ones makes it possible to obtain additional speed-up in comparison with the use of automatic optimization of the program code. Key words: parallel computations, "particle-particle" method, vectorization of computations, numerical modeling, Coulomb interactions, dynamics of charged particles, ion beam, program code, equation of motion, mathematical model.

  • Investigation of the accordion effect of corrugated steel beams

    Assessment of flexural strength is important in the design of steel beams. In this paper, analytical studies have been carried out to determine the flexural strength of conventional steel I-beams and steel corrugated beams. An experimental program was analyzed for four beams with a simple support and different web configurations (flat or corrugated) and different flange thicknesses (thin or thick). In the course of experimental work, the effect of a decrease in the bending capacity of a beam due to a corrugated web was determined. To simulate the tested samples and check the results of the experimental part of the work, a nonlinear finite element technique was used. After receiving the results, the following conclusions were made. First, the bending capacity of the corrugated steel beam is less than that of the conventional steel I-beam, in the range of 10 to 20%. Second, the flexure of the flat-web steel beam showed local buckling of the flange followed by local buckling of the web, in contrast to the steel girder with a corrugated web, which previously showed only local buckling of the flange. And third, the finite element model can simulate the behavior of steel beams, especially in the elastic stage, with an acceptable degree of accuracy.

  • Assessment of factors affecting the ecology of cities with hot climates and difficult terrain

    Southern cities with hot and calm climate conditions, located on difficult terrain due to the lack of sufficient aeration, are in an extreme ecological situation. Urban construction on difficult terrain affects the established local microclimate by changing the structure of the environment and hydrogeological conditions. In addition, the development of urban space and the construction of modern multi-storey buildings significantly affect the aerodynamics of the environment and ecology. In the article, on the basis of the analysis of the climatic parameters of the cities of Sochi, Makhachkala and field observations, the conditions under which the local air circulation is formed, contributing to the improvement of the ecological situation, are revealed. Models of the formation of aeration of urban space for different types of landscaping have been constructed The analysis performed will make it possible to correctly assess the factors influencing the formation of aeration of thermal origin and their role in improving the ecology of cities with hot and calm climate conditions.

  • Prospects for the use of carbonate rocks of the Perm Region for the production of chemically deposited chalk with specified quality indicators

    On the territory of the Perm Region there are a large number of deposits of carbonate rocks. Their application in various industries is limited due to the high amount of impurities, so to expand the scope of application of local carbonate rocks, it is proposed to use chemical methods for obtaining deposited chalk, which were considered in the article. The most rational method seems to be the carbonation of calcium hydroxide with carbon dioxide. The implementation of this method is possible at commercial lime production plants, which will not only solve the important environmental problem of carbon dioxide emissions in such industries, but also will allow expanding the market for high-quality calcium carbonate, which is in demand by various industries.
