  • Selection of computer-aided design systems based on functional completeness criteria

    An overview of modern tools for computer-aided design of technical systems is given. Using the method of comparing systems by the criterion of functional completeness, their main functionality, compliance with standards, and additional specialized applications are analyzed. It is shown how much computer-aided design systems accepted for comparison have differences or similarities in terms of functional completeness. Using the method of formalized functional completeness analysis allows us to assess the level of compliance of systems with the requirements at the stage of preliminary analysis, form a group of systems that have the same functional completeness and analyze them by other criteria. Based on the formalized analysis of functional completeness, the choice of the Autodesk Inventor system for the development and research of a new design of the mechanism for moving a tunneling explosive-bulk complex was made. It was used to generate the shape of the support frame of the complex in conjunction with the movement mechanism and made a preliminary analysis of the safety margin of the metal structure. The value of the coefficient of safety margin, taking into account the gravity of the structure with a different combination of influencing factors, ranges from 20.11 to 43.2. This makes it possible to conduct research under load in critical operating modes.

  • Optimal management of a certain model of a dental company

    The consideration and study of the process of functioning of the offices of the company were the following objectives. Determine the quantitative dependencies of the input flow of patients and unserved requests (refusals). To conduct the sensitivity analysis. Build a basic model of a dental company as a simulation model (input model) that provides targeted variation of input parameters, and a linear programming model (output model) that processes simulation results and provides data on the degree of sensitivity of the model to changes in its parameters. Compare two simulation models of a dental company with different numbers of doctors. Determine the most effective model. Determine a combination of management variables in the optimization model that takes into account the amount of estimated lost profits due to rejection of applications, and based on this, make a conclusion about the need to hire additional employees, thereby increasing the profitability of the dental company. To achieve these goals, the following tasks were solved. A simulation model of a dental company as a Queuing system in the GPSS language was developed and studied. It is determined under which parameters the model is most effective. An analysis of the sensitivity of the model to changes in its parameters is performed. Numerical Monte Carlo methods were used to investigate this issue. We have developed a custom application in the VBA object-oriented programming language that allows you to determine for a certain period of time, starting with how many failures, you should hire an additional doctor, so that the company's profit is maximized. The practical value of the proposed model lies in its flexibility, complex nature, and consistency in the organization and technological regulation of the company's main systems and business processes. The model of a dental company has a sufficient degree of universality, as it can be used in any branch of the service sector. more complicated when you add players. The term "truel" we understand the rivalry three players. They are assigned some values of accuracy the probabilities of eliminating the opponent in one shot. At each stage of the game is chosen by the active player (the selection rule active player either randomly or by prior agreement between the players about their participation). The active player chooses an opponent to eliminate or passes the course. Developed mathematical models for different formulations of the conditions of the game (random or fixed choice of the active player). For each model are analyzed based on the probability of winning in the "truly" of accuracy, based on randomly generated program values. Comparing analytical solution and simulation, we see that they have the same answers. For large dimensions similar games analytical method requires complex calculations, so an acceptable alternative is the simulation method. Data research nahegelegenen in political and judicial practices, as well as analytical tools for the study of the theory of evolution.

  • Optimization sizes of steel vertical tank

    Storage of volatile and flammable liquids is carried out, as a rule, in vertical steel tanks. In total storage, they make up more than 80%. That is why research in this area is important in industry. The issue of reducing the cost of manufacturing tanks and reducing material costs during construction is extremely relevant. Based on the dependences of the optimal diameter, height and mass of the hull on the volume of the vessel, calculations were made for the existing TVS-10.000. In this paper, we considered a method for optimizing the size of a tank from the condition of minimum material consumption of the housing.The main dependencies and formulas were derived, on the basis of which the calculation was performed. When making calculations, the effect of static load was taken into account without the influence of dynamic factors. Thus, there was a decrease in material costs by about half for the cylindrical wall, cover and bottom.

  • Study of the dependence of the strength of cement composites on their fractal dimension

    The article is devoted to the relationship between the strength of cement composites and the fractal dimension of their structure. In solid state physics, fractal algorithms can accurately describe and predict their properties and can be used in modeling the structure of composite building materials. Determination of the material fractal dimension according to its structure image at the macrolevel allows to understand its microstructure, and its properties as the result. Using the methods of experiment mathematical planning, the study was carried out and the relationship between the strength of the cement composite and its fractal dimension was established. It has been found out that the lower the fractal dimension, the higher the strength of cement composites. However, there is an area on the function graph that shows the increase in strength at sufficiently large values of the fractal dimension. Presumably, this is due to a change in the parameters of material differential porosity. For example, such as the average pore size index, the coefficient of pores uniformity in size, and the coefficient of microporosity. Such circumstance arouses interest and conditions for further research.
