  • Design of foamed porous heat-insulating materials using the 3D Voronoi tessellation

    In this work, the effective thermal conductivity of porous materials is studied by a numerical method. A technique for designing an insulating material with specified geometric characteristics is proposed, which makes it possible to predict the thermal conductivity of porous insulation with sufficient accuracy. The design of foamed porous heat-insulating materials was based on the 3D Voronoi tessellation. The effective thermal conductivity of porous media was determined for twenty structures with different geometric characteristics. The thermophysical properties of the material corresponded to melamine. To verify the numerical solution, the effective thermal conductivity of the melamine sponge was determined experimentally. One regular structure and three irregular structures were compared with each other. The porosity of the insulating structures ranged from 0.722 to 0.987, the fiber diameter ranged from 0.0489 mm to 0.1259 mm. A theoretical solution is proposed for determining the effective thermal conductivity of regular structures. The technique proposed in the work can be used to design heat-insulating materials based on additive technologies, with specified heat-insulating and structural properties.

  • Stable operation mode of a wedge-shaped sliding support with increased load-bearing capacity, operating on a compressible lubricant and on its own melt

    The paper considers the quasi-stationary motion of a viscous compressible fluid in the gap of a thrust bearing with a nonlinear contour of the support surface of the slider. It is assumed that the slider is stationary, and the guide with the molten surface moves in the direction of narrowing the gap at a time-dependent speed. Well-known equations are used for the solution: the equation of motion of a compressible fluid, the equation of continuity, the equation of state and the equation describing the profile of the molten contour of the support ring. The case is considered for the extreme and non-extreme case, that is, when the parameter of the specific heat of melting tends to infinity and vice versa. As a result of an accurate self–similar solution, the main operational characteristics are determined - velocity and pressure fields, load capacity and friction force. The problem of the stability of the movement of the support ring is also solved. The final stage of theoretical calculation methods is numerical analysis.The analysis of its results showed that the modified design of the thrust sliding bearing, taking into account additional factors, has a bearing capacity value exceeding the standard designs by 8-11% in the range of load-speed modes studied. The coefficient of friction is reduced by 9-13%.

  • Investigation of the dependence of the error in the approximate solution of the Laplace equation on the mean minimum sine of the angle of the cells of the computational grid

    The paper studies the issue of the influence of the quality of the computational triangular grid on the accuracy of calculations in various computational problems. There is a well-known example of Schwartz, which shows that the approximation of a smooth surface by a polyhedral surface can give very large errors for calculating the surface area. This is due to the quality of the constructed triangulation of the surface. Therefore, it is natural to expect that there is some connection between a certain triangulation characteristic and the accuracy of solving some computational problem. In the presented article, as such a characteristic, a value is chosen - the average value of the minimum sine of the angle of all triangles of the computational grid. In the course of numerical experiments, the Dirichlet problem for the Laplace equation in a circular ring was solved, in which the error of the approximate solution was calculated (the gradient descent method was used to find a solution to the corresponding variational problem.). For the ring, a series of triangulations was constructed with a uniform division along the angle and a non-uniform division along the radius in polar coordinates. In this example, a linear dependence of the error on was shown. The article presents both the results of the calculation with different values ​​and the calculation of the correlation coefficient of the studied quantities.

  • Development of a cooling system for the vacuum chamber of a multicomponent nanocomposite coating facility

    The global economy growth and active industrial development are limited, among other things, by the capabilities of existing technology. The potential for improving the functional characteristics of classical materials is practically exhausted, and the widespread use of new composite materials and high-enthalpy alloys is limited by the high cost and complexity of the technological process of their manufacture and processing. Knowledge of the materials physical-mechanical, thermophysical and chemical characteristics proves that the surface structural-phase state in many cases is crucial in the processes of wear, fracture, chemical and thermal destruction. Thus, the issue of developing technologies and equipment for modifying the surface layer and creating multicomponent coatings, including nanocomposite ones, is urgent. Current article presents the results of a study devoted to the creation of a facility for such coatings deposition by plasma spraying. One of the key elements of technological equipment for this method is a vacuum chamber, which is exposed to intense thermal stress during operation. Thus, the issue of designing a cooling system is relevant. To reduce the material and time resources at the design and experimental development, the temperature state of the chamber was simulated. It is shown that to ensure safe operation, it is advisable to use water cooling. The simulation results confirm the operability of the vacuum chamber cooling system under operating conditions. The following operating parameters were determined: the inlet pressure is 0.6 MPa, the water flow rate is 2 l/s, and the mass average temperature of the outlet water is about 40°C.

  • Improving the routing of commercial concrete mixers using a genetic algorithm with an emphasis on economic and environmental indicators

    Transportation is one of the most important stages in the management of cement delivery, which accounts for 60% of total costs. Thus, a slight improvement in the collection and processing of data on the operation of concrete mixers can have a significant impact on the overall savings spent on the work of companies engaged in transportation. On the other hand, the movement of heavy vehicles carrying cement mixture leads to the spread of air pollution and damage to the road surface in case of excessive loading. Therefore, the issue of determining the route of the vehicle to achieve this goal is very important. In this study, the routing process of concrete mixers was modeled using random routing problems and genetic algorithms. The simulation results showed that the genetic algorithm converges to the optimal answer. On the other hand, the volume of the cost function decreases from 1,177,500 rubles to 158,900 rubles. due to the optimization of the mentioned model, and the performance result led to the appearance of the shortest possible path.

Finally, thanks to the integration of the GLONASS/GPS software, the output data of the algorithm was mapped to the map.

  • Applied aspects of the application of a computational complex for modeling a multi-void monolithic overlap

    An overview of the rationale for the use of lightweight multi-hollow floor slabs is given. Technological and design features of multi-hollow floor slabs are considered. The possibilities of rational use and labor intensity of lightweight hollow floor slabs are presented. On the basis of existing technologies, calculation methods for lightweight hollow slabs and current norms, the calculation of monolithic slabs in the Lira software package was carried out. The work of floor slabs with spans equal in two directions is considered. It was found that regardless of the span of the floor slab, the effect of reducing its own weight exceeds the effect of reducing the cruelty of the section. The total deflection from the floor slab's own weight and payload on it for hollow slabs is lower than for solid slabs of the same span.The conducted numerical experiment allows us to establish the limits of the effectiveness of the use of lightweight multi-hollow monolithic floor slabs, upon reaching which the use turns out to be significantly more profitable than the use of traditional girderless floors.
