  • Installation for measuring longitudinal aberrations of mirror and lens lenses

    The operability of an optical device depends entirely on the quality of the optical parts that make up the optical system. Timely measurement of errors of optical parts in the process of surface shaping organizes feedback: the more accurately the error is measured, the more accurately the correction of the geometry of the surface is possible. Errors of optical surfaces and optical systems in general can be estimated by the mismatch of coordinates of real and ideal (calculated) profile curves of surfaces; mismatch of normals to this surface; difference of wave fronts in incident and refracted (or reflected) beams of light rays, etc.. The reproducibility of optical surfaces from sample to sample and their compliance with the calculated one is usually estimated by the discrepancy between the actual and theoretical functions of the course of light rays. Such a discrepancy is estimated by the aberrograms of optical systems, which are determined experimentally on special installations – aberrographs. Unlike the known schemes for measuring longitudinal aberrations of only reflectors or only lenses, the devel-oped installation is universal, designed to measure zonal aberrations of large-diameter mirror and lens lenses that are used in lighting devices, solar energy concentrators, transmitting and receiving optical systems of optoelectronic de-vices.

  • Study of the problems of fretting damage of a mechanical assembly

    The study of the problem of fretting damage to a mechanical assembly bolted in three dimensions requires the analysis of stress fields in Cartesian coordinates along the angle and radius of contact pads. It also requires determining the location of the crack initiation and propagation. In this study, we will focus on numerical simulation using ANSYS. The results obtained in the form of nodal solutions show in detail the positions of stress concentrations and the formation of the bolted assembly. The contact surface between plates (or contact elements) is characterized by contact pressure, adhesion and clearance. The results obtained made it possible to determine the stress that caused the initiation and propagation of a crack, as well as the position of the damaged area by fretting.

  • Simulation of the "vibrating roller - compacted asphalt concrete" system

    In this paper, the results of modeling the system "vibrating roller - compacted asphalt concrete" are considered. The analysis of the state of the quality of compaction of asphalt concrete mixture by the method of continuous control of compaction of asphalt concrete, as well as the influence of the behavior of the fluctuating mass of the roller on the viscosity properties of asphalt concrete is given. A mathematical model has been developed that allows taking into account the influence of asphalt concrete properties changing during the compaction process on the vibration characteristics of the vibrating roller. The spectrum of accelerations of the vibrating roller and the graph of the dependence of the stress of the asphalt concrete mixture in the compaction process are obtained. The developed model makes it possible to determine changes in the properties of the compacted material and the nature of vibrations of the vibrating roller. It is determined that with an increase in the value of the stiffness coefficient of asphalt concrete, the acceleration spectra of the vibrating roller also change. When the vibrating roller is in constant contact with the surface, only the harmonic at the operating frequency of the vibrating roller is visible on the acceleration spectrum, without the manifestation of other harmonics and subharmonics.

  • Assessment of stiffness for corrosion-damaged reinforced concrete beams

    Alternative approaches to estimating the stiffness of corrosion-damaged beams taking into account localization of corrosion focus and corrosion damage development of concrete based on the model of V.M. Bondarenko are considered. The following methods of determining displacements of corroded reinforced concrete beams of rectangular cross-section are considered. In the first one, the stiffness of the beam in determining the deflection is considered to be constant. In this case, the corrosion-damaged deflections values may be underestimated due to failure to take into account the actual work of reinforced concrete. In the second, the deflection is calculated considering the height of the concrete compression zone that varies along the length of the beam. For these approaches, stiffness reduction in the beam sections in the presence of corrosion damage to the concrete of the compressed zone is modeled. It is shown that in the presence of corrosion damage, the deflections of the structure can significantly increase, which requires mandatory consideration in the life cycle of load-bearing structures of structures when assessing their mechanical safety.

  • Features of the progressive collapse calculation for the frame of unique building of a multifunctional complex.

    The calculation for progressive collapse with variation and comparison of different scenarios was carried out for the frame of a unique high-rise building of a multifunctional complex. At the first stage, the calculation was performed in a quasi-static formulation, the maximum deflections for two destruction scenarios were determined. The requirements for the state of limited operability in conditions of progressive collapse are completed. At the second stage, the calculation was made in a dynamic formulation. A modal analysis of the frame was previously performed in order to determine the forms of vibrations that will correspond to the expected deformations of the structure in the event of the occurrence and development of the process of progressive collapse. It is established that the maximum deflection of the plate when calculated in a dynamic formulation is 27.6% greater than in a quasi-static one. The residual deflection after the attenuation of the oscillatory process is 4.6% less than in the static calculation. Therefore, the object of study is safe from the point of view of the possibility of an emergency situation, accompanied by partial destruction of load-bearing structures.

  • Identification of the causes of defects in the pipes of the hot water supply system of an apartment building

    The existing hot water supply system of a 17-storey apartment building commissioned in 2010 is considered and its scheme is described. A laboratory study of the dismantled sections of the defective pipeline was carried out. It is shown that the entire inner surface of the pipe is covered with longitudinal cracks of uneven shape, different lengths and depths. A microscopic examination of the pipe section revealed areas of insufficient adhesion of the reinforcing layer with the inner layer of the polypropylene pipe. It is established that the main reason for the appearance of pipe defects in the form of numerous cracks, the formation of bubbles and fracture with a short service life is associated with the formation of a rupture of bonds between layers and the use of low-quality polypropylene pipes.

  • Component composition of the modified plant material

    In recent decades, awareness of the environmental, social and economic crisis, both at the national and international levels, has prompted researchers to develop new, low-cost composites that are more environmentally friendly and safer for humans, using plant materials as reinforcing elements. Compared to conventional synthetic reinforcing materials, lignocellulosic fibers have many advantages. In addition to being renewable, inexpensive, widely available and harmless to health, plant fibers have relatively high specific mechanical properties combined with low density. However, there is a problem with the biostability of plant materials used in the production of composite materials, and to solve it, it was decided to pre-modify plant materials using the monoethanolamine (N-B) trihydroxyborate modifier. In order to find out the effect of the modifier on the plant material, the chemical composition of the plant material was determined before and after the modification. Determination of cellulose content was carried out by the nitrogen-alcohol method according to Kurshner and Hoffer; the amount of hemicelluloses was analyzed by treatment with 2% hydrochloric acid, followed by precipitation of furfural obtained by the bromide-bromate method; lignin content was determined by the Clason method using 72% sulfuric acid; and, finally, the content of extractive substances soluble in organic solvents was determined. It should be noted that, compared with the component composition of the raw plant material, there is a change, and this change is noticeable in the amount of lignin after the modification of the raw material and after extraction, which gives a decrease of almost 2.75 times. This is due to the formation of weak esters under the action of the modifier and, most strikingly, a strong increase in the amount of hemicellulose, which contributes to the depolymerization of cellulose macromolecules under the action of the alkaline modifier used. All this allows us to state that the modification of the crushed stems of Sosnowski's hogweed with monoethanolamine (N→B)-trihydroxyborate changes the composition of the components of the lignocarbohydrate complex of the substrate in the direction of reducing the degree of polymerization and the formation of esters.
