Electrochemical modification of surface properties of carbon fiber based on the polyacrilonitrile
# 09, September 2013 DOI: 10.7463/0913.0620998 Electrochemical and subsequent chemical treatments of carbon fiber produced by twostage thermal stabilization and carbonization of polyacrylonitrile fiber were used for modification of its surface to improve its adhesive properties with epoxy matrix. Electrochemical treatment initiates complicated physical and chemical transformations which lead to etching, lengthwise channels and crosslink formations between carbon filaments. Various conditions for electrochemical treatment of carbon fiber in water solutions of ammonium salts (NH_{4})HCO_{3}/(NH_{4})_{2}C_{2}O_{4 }were used to determine the optimal modes and to increase the tensile strength value of microplastics up to 10% compared to untreated carbon fiber samples. Coating the surface of carbon fiber with polymer layers by electrochemical polymerization was applied; this approach appeared to be an alternative and effective way for modification of surface properties.
Increasing efficiency of flat grinding by cup wheel’s end face on the basis of control of the heatstressed state of a working zone
# 09, September 2013 DOI: 10.7463/0913.0606036 Flat grinding by cup wheel’s end face usually is more efficient than other types of grinding because many abrasive grains simultaneously take part in the process; this leads to the decrease in machined surface roughness. At the same time, due to a large area and duration time of contact between the face wheel and the detail, this particular type of grinding is characterized by high heat release rate. In order to achieve the required quality face grinding is usually conducted at reduced power. That is why determination of relations and patterns in the process of face grinding of flat surfaces, which influence the heatstressed state of the working zone would allow to increase machining efficiency of flat details.
Experimental determination of drilling cutting forces based on dimensional analysis and the similarity theory
# 09, September 2013 DOI: 10.7463/0913.0598978 This paper deals with the similarity theory and dimensional analysis for investigating cutting forces – particularly during drilling. Use of dimensionless groups allows one to obtain relations which are independent of unit systems, reduce the number of significant variables; it also helps to avoid influence of measurement bias on the dimension of physical relationships and ensure comparability of experimental results obtained under various conditions by different authors. Eleven dimensionless quantities for cutting process characteristics were proposed. Based on the experimental data for 3 types of drills, polynomial and power cutting laws for both axial force and torque were derived. Extension of those relationships to the case of vibrational drilling was considered; a method of applying existing relationships to obtaining of cutting laws in the form of dimensionless criteria was proposed.

Results of a quality estimation of the machined surfaces are also given. The conducted studies confirmed effectiveness of the use of cutters made of dense boron nitride for precision machining of hardened steel.

# 09, September 2013 DOI: 10.7463/0913.0622287 A feasibility of the fourstroke diesel engine YANMAR L100C running under condition of the superhigh compression ratio was investigated numerically in this paper. Computational model was created in the simulation modeling system “Albea” which was designed at the department of ICE of the Ufa State Aviation Technical University. Dependencies of brake efficiency on the different values of compression ratio of the investigated engine were calculated and presented in this work. It was discovered that growth of the compression ratio from 19.3 up to 30 led to the significant decrease in brake efficiency. In the meantime, decreasing of the compression ratio from 19.3 down to 12 – 15 led to the growth of brake efficiency, especially at partial loads.

Capacity regulation of screw compressors
# 09, September 2013 DOI: 10.7463/0913.0596092 Nowadays various methods of capacity regulation are or may be applied to screw compressors (SC). This paper presents research results of two methods: changing rotation frequency of the driving engine’s shaft and restriction of air in the suction passage.

# 09, September 2013 DOI: 10.7463/0913.0593565 In this paper processes of formation of dynamic loading were investigated; ways of improving durability of shrink disks of transport vehicle transmissions were justified. A hypothesis of destruction of these disks due to the impact of highfrequency perturbations produced by both an engine and a hydraulic torque converter was proposed; parametric resonance oscillation conditions were determined. Unstable zones for parametric oscillations were defined, using the Mathieu equation; need for filtration of highfrequency perturbations was determined in order to limit the parameter of modulation depth.

Development of an adaptive law of relay control of threelevel damping of elastic damping elements of multiwheeled vehicles’ suspension
# 09, September 2013 DOI: 10.7463/0913.0567756 The required level of damping a multisupporting oscillatory system, as it is known, depends on the nature of the external impact. In this case, regulation of damping characteristics depending on the operation mode of depreciation systems is one of the main directions of further improvements. Direction of increasing the quality of primary control systems for suspension of multiwheeled vehicles (MWV) with the number of axes more than three appears to be very promising. A mathematical model and calculation methodology of design parameters of a pneumohydraulic cushion with backpressure and threelevel damping for controlled suspensions of multiaxis chassis were developed. An example of calculation of a cushion for MWV suspension with a 8x8 wheel formula and total mass of 60 tons is given. The adaptive law of relay control of MWV suspension system, namely the “inertial damper” adaptive law, was developed with the use of fuzzy logic methods.

Flow simulation around a thin plate using a modified numerical scheme of the vortex element method
# 09, September 2013 DOI: 10.7463/0913.0602362 The Blasius benchmark problem dedicated to numerical simulation of a flow around a thin plate is considered in this paper. The laminar boundary layer was simulated using a modified numerical scheme of the vortex element method with tangent velocity components. This numerical scheme was implemented in POLARA software. Distributions of longitudinal and transversal velocity components over the boundary layer’s crosssection were obtained. Use of the modified scheme allowed to improve accuracy of determining the intensity of a vortex layer on the plate significantly at every step of the calculation. The obtained results appeared to be in good agreement with the analytic solution given by Blasius.
Choice of basis for simulation of ETL wire by the Galerkin method
# 09, September 2013 DOI: 10.7463/0913.0602290 A problem of building a system of base functions suitable for solving motion equations of a wire by the Galerkin method was considered in this paper. Dependence of the peaktopeak amplitude of oscillations on the number of base functions was studied by a test example. Two sets of wire parameters were considered; wire motion is qualitatively different for these sets. Use of one base function in each direction is reasonable for a taut wire and it leads to an error less than 4 %. For a slack wire usage of not less than six base functions is required for correct simulation of wire motion.

Such systems form the widest class of systems for which control algorithms were developed. An invariant description of algebra of vector fields which define linearizing dynamic feedback was obtained by methods of infinitedimensional differential geometry. This result can be used for checking dynamic linearizability of particular control systems and in theoretical studies for creating examples of dynamically linearizable systems with certain properties or describing the whole class of such systems with a given dimension.

Problems of minimizing summary characteristic velocity required for maintenance and replenishment of satellite systems at noncoplanar circular orbits
# 09, September 2013 DOI: 10.7463/0913.0598333 This article describes cost estimations of summary characteristic velocity (SCV) required for replenishment of satellite systems at circular and nearcircular orbits. TSCV costs optimization for maneuvering is based on using a parking orbit. All possible combinations of values of initial and final orbit parameters were investigated sequentially. The accompanying effects were analyzed; consideration of these effects allows to minimize SCV costs significantly. Analytical relations which determine a number of passive circuits at a parking orbit representing a compromise between time and SCV costs for coplanar flights were found. The obtained results could be used for minimization of temporal and energetic costs while designing and exploiting specified types of satellite systems. In addition, these results are applicable in exploitation of maneuvering space vehicles designed for collecting largesized space debris.

# 09, September 2013 DOI: 10.7463/0913.0630141 The problem of hierarchical representation of a computer network for carrying out its multiscale analysis was considered. An original problem was reduced to the known set cover problem (SCP). Since this problem is NPdifficult, approximate heuristic techniques were useful for its solving. We proposed an algorithm based on the recurrent Hopfield neural network and its combination with the simulated annealing algorithm (socalled Boltzmann machine). A greedy algorithm was used for a construction of hierarchy levels. This approach was evaluated with a use of the test problems from ORLibrary. Proposed approach could be used in the systems of traffic analysis and anomaly detection in computer networks.
Identification of linear dynamic elements using a frequency locus
# 09, September 2013 DOI: 10.7463/0913.0618917 This article deals with the identification method for a linear dynamic element with known transfer function using an experimental frequency locus with random measurement errors. A transfer function of an element was selected as a model. It was proposed to search for the solution to the identification problem in the class of hodographs, defined by the element’s model. Search for unknown coefficients of a transfer function of the element’s model was carried out by minimizing the proposed proximity measure of the experimental element’s locus and the model’s locus. As a result, the specified problem was reduced to a system of linear equations. An illustrative computing experiment for a secondorder element showed that an error of the transfer function’s coefficients was comparable with the range of measurement errors of experimental samples of this element’s locus.

Results of comprehensive performance study of proposed modifications by the example of a set of benchmark functions which revealed advantages over the canonical method were presented. One of proposed modifications was used for solving the existent practical problem of minimizing the expenditures on the manufacturing of highpressure vessels. It was shown that proposed modifications provide a better value of the objective function in comparison with results obtained by other researches and also allow one to meet all restrictions.

Evaluation of effective thermal conductivity of composites with ball inclusions by the method of selfconsistency
# 09, September 2013 DOI: 10.7463/0913.0601512 The method of selfconsistency was applied to obtaining an estimate of the effective value of thermal conductivity of a composite with ball inclusions. This method was based on averaging of parameters of a perturbed temperature field in elements of a composite structure. The perturbed temperature field in inclusions and ball particles of the composite matrix was found by solving the steadystate heat conduction problem formulated on the basis of a constructed mathematical model of thermal interaction of these elements with a homogeneous material with an unknown coefficient of thermal conductivity. Quantitative analysis of the derived calculated relation was carried out to a sufficiently wide range of the defining parameters to verify reliability of the obtained estimate. The calculation results with respect to this relation are located within the interval between the lower and upper estimates which could be obtained from both a singular approximation of the theory of random functions and the dual variation principle of Hashin  Shtrikman.

Diffraction nonreciprocity of counterpropagating waves in a ring prismatic resonator with a diffraction photomixer
# 09, September 2013 DOI: 10.7463/0913.0616142 This article deals with investigation of diffraction nonreciprocity of a ring prismatic resonator; in this case the diffraction nonreciprocity is conditioned by presence of a diffraction photomixer and a sharp edge diaphragm. Dependences of diffraction splitting on the photomixer’s location relative to the resonator’s axis at various sizes of a singlesided diaphragm with a sharp edge were determined by means of solving an integral equation of the ring resonator numerically. The author obtained relation between displacement of the photomixer relative to the resonator’s axis and size of the sharp edge diaphragm when there was no diffraction nonreciprocity. The derived conclusions could be useful for design and modernization of laser gyrometers with resonators formed by total internal reflection prisms.
