  • Project risk management: working with contractors

    No major construction project is implemented without the involvement of contractors who perform significant work in the field of geodesy, design, equipment manufacturing, construction, control and commissioning of the object. In the conditions of market economy the existence of risk is inevitable for all participants in the construction project. Risks are one of the most serious problems of the customer, who needs to keep the limit of the estimated cost of a construction project unchanged. If negative external risks cannot be regulated, internal risks can be minimized or eliminated. Analysis of the experience of customers in the oil and gas industry of the Tyumen region draws attention to the relevance of the problem today. The article presents technical, financial, and organizational risks as the most common, and identifies ways to manage them.

  • Experimental evaluation of the influence of external elements on the frequency dependence of the complex resistance module of an acoustic antenna

    The use of a separate receiving antenna at different frequencies in parametric acoustic systems is associated with the irreversibility of nonlinear processes underlying its principle of operation. The paper considers the results of experimental and theoretical studies to assess the influence of external elements on the amplitude-frequency response of a piezoceramic acoustic antenna. The structural scheme of the experimental setup is considered. It is shown that parallel connection of an external inductance to a piezoelectric element allows shifting the antiresonance frequency of an acoustic antenna, which leads to an increase in both the signal amplitude at the antenna output and an increase in the complex resistance module at the operating frequency.

  • Propagation of a narrow-band impulse in a shallow water hydroacoustic waveguide

    The article considered the propagation of a long impulse signal in a hydroacoustic waveguide. A solution is given for a replica of a impulse signal in the second approximation of the dispersion theory. The propagation of a single-mode and multimode impulse in a Pekeris waveguide with a bottom in the form of an absorbing half-space is simulated. The acoustic properties of the half-space correspond to medium sand with an average grain size 0,3 mm. The result of the solution in the second approximation of the dispersion theory is compared with the result of the simulation of the impulse replica obtained as a convolution of the input signal with the impulse response of the waveguide. The disadvantages of the solution in the second approximation of the dispersion theory are shown and analyzed. It is shown that the theory of dispersion incorrectly reproduces the transients when the signal is switched on and off in cases where the signal frequency lies near the critical frequency of the first or second mode. It is shown that the theory of dispersion correctly reproduces the envelope of a multimode impulse signal.

  • Extending the pitch of the hydroacoustic parametric antenna array thanks to axial interlaced shift of elements in half the pitch

    This article deals with the parametric hydrophone antenna arrays the elements of which are connected in parallel on one coordinate (in the columns). The mathematical models had been developed which were derived from the formula of the directional characteristic of a right-angled flat radiator embedded into the absolutely hard baffle. A level of overshoots of the directional characteristic (as related to a principal maximum) amounts no more than 0.15; a coefficient of decreasing overshoots of the directional characteristics because of shifting lines is approximately equal to two 2 for the array (8 x 8 or 16 x 16) with a pitch equal to wave length, with shifting lines to half the array pitch, a gap between the elements is 0.1 of the array pitch and a direction of beams is from 5 to 18 degrees on both sides with respect to the normal to an antenna plane. Without the gap between the elements at the abovementioned conditions the overshoots and the coefficient of their decreasing will no more than 0.1 and approximately 2.4 respectively. Thanks to extending the antenna array pitch a number of antenna elements is being reduced, and consequently, a number of the power amplifiers will be reduced as well. The simulation results are presented including computed two-dimensional directional characteristics of the antennae. The overshoot dependences upon beam direction and antenna array element dimension are also shown.

    A model of passenger traffic movement is proposed that is suitable for identifying hidden patterns in the processes of passenger flow creation. The passenger flow is divided into four components, for which separate passenger flow submodels are developed: quasi-deterministic passenger flow from leaving stops to points of mass attraction of passengers; stochastic hourly passenger flow from each arrival stop to different districts of the city; stochastic flow that models the distribution of passengers between final stops in accordance with the degree of popularity of stops; chaotic distribution of passenger traffic between stops with a small number of daily visits.

    The main process of stratum fluid extraction in Russia is mechanized lifting. It is observed that the stock of wells equipped with electric centrifugal pumps units has grown by 50% over the past 10 years, to almost 100,000 units. Growth detected in the average time between overhauls of the oil-well stock during this period increased by 50%, to almost 800 days. Mathematical modeling becomes a tool for further improving energy efficiency and reliability. The purposes of this work is to analyze existing models of submersible electric motors and their area of operations, identify existing shortcomings and limitations, and formulate requirements for the refined model and its application potential. The results of a thermоvisional inspecting of the rotor of a submersible electric motor after long-term operation in idle mode are presented. The temperature dispersion of the rotor packages is recorded from 36.68 °C to 46.67 °C. Different packages temperatures lead to uneven changes in the active resistances of the windings, which affect the contribution of each package to the integral operating and Electromechanical characteristics of the submersible motor. For taking into account the detected effect, it is proposed to model a submersible asynchronous electric motor as an electrotechnical complex consisting of an interacting and mutually influencing set of elementary electric machines. Spatial and mathematical models are presented that take into account temperature fluctuations in individual parts of the electric motor.

  • Ontological Modeling Approach for WHAT-Knowledge by means of ORM2-diagrams and the developed Protege-plugin

    To share and transfer knowledge, they must be presented in an explicit form that is understandable to both humans and computers. The paper proposes an approach to ontological modeling of WHAT-knowledge, which allows representing knowledge simultaneously in two forms: a) in the form of a visual model (ORM2-diagram), understandable to humans, and b) OWL2-ontology, computer understandable. To convert the knowledge representation from one form to another one, it is proposed to use ontological patterns (mapping rules). Currently, there is no software toolkit that allows a) to build an ORM2-diagram and mapping it in the OWL2-ontology, and b) based on OWL2-ontology, build a visual model in the form of an ORM2-diagram. Therefore, we are developing a Protege-plugin, which should provide a) the creation and editing of WHAT-knowledge by building an ORM2-diagram and mapping it in the OWL2-ontology, and b) visualization of WHAT knowledge in the form of an ORM2-diagram, extracting instances of ontological patterns from the OWL2-ontology. The paper provides a functional and structural description of the plugin; examples of its use are given.
