  • Numerical simulation and experimental study of a liquid cooling system of a computer based on ferrofluids

    The key parameter of any cooling system is the heat transfer coefficient. The article deals with the issue of studying the dependence of the thermal resistance of the heat exchanger of a liquid cooling system based on ferrofluids and the heat transfer coefficient on the parameters of the fluid flow and the magnetic field in the heat exchanger. The study was carried out by numerical simulation and thermophysical experiment. A feature of the considered cooling system is the coolant. A ferromagnetic liquid based on Fe3O4 magnetites and propylene glycol is used as a coolant. As a result, a numerical model for calculating the heat transfer coefficient for an experimental liquid cooling system is obtained. The influence of the magnetic field on the thermal resistance of the system and the heat transfer coefficient of the wall-liquid at various magnitudes of the magnetic field strength is estimated. An experimental dependence has been obtained showing an increase in the heat transfer coefficient up to 12.5% when a magnetic field is applied.

  • "Phase transitions at slope boundaries in polycrystalline material "

    An analytical model of the development and growth of embryos in a polycrystalline material during a phase transition at the intergranular slope boundary is proposed. The model assumes the presence of faces that are oriented crystallographically parallel to the forming boundary and are characterized by reduced surface energy. In this case, the faces refer to the densely packed plane of the lattice of matching nodes. The results obtained in the work on the evaluation of the parameters of the formed facets and the total testing time are confirmed by generalized experimental data.

  • Effect of photon drag of electrons in a semiconductor quantum wire with hydrogen-like impurity centers and Kane dispersion law

    The article discusses the effect of photon drag (EPI) of electrons in a semiconductor quantum wire (QW) with hydrogen-like impurity centers and Kane's dispersion law, located in a longitudinal magnetic field. An analytical expression for the drag current density is obtained in the effective mass approximation, and its spectral dependence is investigated for various values ​​of the magnetic field B and the parameters of the QW upon scattering by a system of potentials of short-range impurities. It was assumed that the QW has the shape of a circular cylinder, on the axis of which hydrogen-like impurity centers are localized. It is shown that, in the one-band approximation, taking into account the nonparabolicity of the dispersion law leads to significant dynamics of the threshold of the spectral curve. The spectral dependence is characterized by a pronounced Zeeman effect. The possibility of using an ESP for the development of photodetectors of optical radiation with a sensitivity controlled in a magnetic field is discussed.

  • Accuracy investigation of color saturation contrast transform for digital images

    The audit to color saturation control tools of modern computer graphics software is carried out. Under assumption of the measuring application for saturation transform, the accompanying error is defined. In the case of a virtual instrument, this error is described as a three-dimensional value and the classification of such error components is proposed. Within the framework of a three-dimensional model, the structure of a saturating toolkit total error is systematized. Properties of one component – the hue non-uniformity of conversion – were studied for 24 graphic software packages. Its peculiarity that is critical for the certain graphic information integrity aspects in the course of saturation-contrast transform was revealed. Anticorrelation of the hue non-uniformity with the previously found brightness shift was detected. As a result, the investigated software product does not guarantee the adequacy of color saturation-contrast control in image analysis tasks. The last does not allow these packages to be used within forensic expertise anyway. Results of analysis for the software package being devoid of both errors (the hue non-uniformity and the brightness shift) are presented. So the earlier announced system requirements to maintain the initial color hue and color brightness are to be supplemented by the uniformity requirement for color saturation conversion process itself.

  • 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.

  • Development of a plasma spraying unit for a multicomponent nanocomposite coating facility

    Due to the constant increase in production, new structural materials development and growing rates of non-renewable resources consumption, the issue of increasing the machinery resource is urgent. Thus, it is necessary to develop technologies for spraying coatings that improve the functional characteristics of products, in particular, impact strength, microhardness, resistance to wear, corrosion and other environmental factors by modifying the surface layer structural-phase state. These technologies application is necessary in strategically important industries, such as machine tool manufacturing, aerospace, automotive, shipbuilding, chemical, energy, etc. This article is devoted to the facility development for multicomponent nanocomposite coatings sputtering. The design and commissioning of such a facility requires a high time and material resources investment. In this regard, it is necessary to use modern computer software systems that allow simulating multiphysics processes that take place during the facility operation. The simulation of the cathode-anode unit was carried out. Based on the simulation results it was shown that it is necessary to take into account the physical processes in the interelectrode region when designing the plasma spraying unit, since the resource of the cathode-electrode unit and the productivity of the sputtering process directly depend on the parameters of the discharge and the resulting plasma jet. Thus, high temperature and current density, as well as the arc spot abrupt movement, lead to increased wear and failure of the copper nozzles. The maximum values of the temperature and velocity of the plasma jet during spraying were 32000 K and 1800 m/s, respectively.

  • Investigation of the possibility of using different types of interferometers in an automated control system for Earth orientation devices

    The article discusses the requirements for automated control systems in the production of Earth orientation devices. Various types of interferometers are analyzed for use in an automated control system for the manufacture of optical instruments for orientation of spacecraft on the Earth. An overview of the most common interferometer models is given, the characteristics and features of their schemes, development trends and manufacturers are discussed in detail. A comparison was made of the parameters of a number of imported and domestic interferometers suitable for use in an automated control system. The advantages and disadvantages of interferometers according to the schemes of Jamen, Mach-Zehnder, Sagnac, Michelson and Fizeau are considered. The Jamen interferometer was invented for the first time in 1856, to measure small refractive indices of gases. The Mach-Zehnder interferometer was developed on a similar principle, its main feature is that the beams of the rays obtained can be separated at a sufficiently large distance using a semitransparent mirror. In 1913, the Sagnac interferometer was invented; in its design, the light is divided by a semitransparent plate-divider into two beams, which propagate in a circle and are reduced by mirrors back to the divider. Albert Michelson in 1890 proposed an interferometer scheme, the basis of which is a light-splitting mirror. One of the most common is the Fizeau interferometer scheme, proposed in 1868. In this type of device, interference occurs in the gap between two reflecting surfaces. Based on the parameters of the problem under study, the choice in favor of the interferometer configuration according to the Fizeau scheme is justified. Interferometer OptoTL-60/125 from LLC "Optical laboratory" meets all the requirements.

  • Geo-economics as a tool of intellectual wars: coercion or freedom of choice?

    the article analyzes the economic instruments used by states in domestic and foreign policy from the point of view of identifying the existing coercive mechanisms in modern social practices. The study revealed how states use economic instruments as the preferred means of geopolitical struggle. In addition, the work separately reflects the fact that States should preserve the right to an original socio-economic model of development. We should also not forget about the negative consequences of unilateral coercive measures. Using the method of cognitive modeling and constructing cognitive maps, the authors identify the connections in the analyzed social practices from the perspective of studying the means of geo-economic pressure.

  • Application of the averaging method in the problem of long loading of a layered elastic-creeping composite

    The paper presents analytical estimates of the proximity of solutions to boundary value problems for elastic-creeping layered composite materials widely used in technology under long-term loading, and also gives the corresponding averaged model for such materials. The estimates show the possibility of using the averaged model over a long time interval for the problem of loading by a constantly acting force. Previously, this statement was confirmed by numerical experiments comparing solutions of boundary value problems for an effective (averaged) model and direct numerical calculation using the original model for a highly inhomogeneous layered material. Analytical estimates are based on previously obtained estimates of the proximity of solutions to stationary problems of elasticity theory. For the one-dimensional model considered in this work, the following property is established: if the constitutive relations for various phases of the composite material are written as dependences of deformations on stresses, then the coefficients for the same form of writing the constitutive relations of the averaged model are obtained as simple weighted average values ​​of similar coefficients for individual phases.

  • The research energy consumption in a stepper motor model

    The article describes the simulation in the Simulink environment of the operation of a stepper motor used as an electric drive of the scanning mechanism for the Earth orientation device. The purpose of the study is to determine the minimum power consumption in each range of values for inductance and resistance. If the model is found to be inoperable above certain values of the specified parameters, the measurement range narrows to an area where there is enough energy to properly work out a given angle. The simulation is based on the parameters of NEMA17 engines, in particular, NEMA 17HS3410. Voltage control in the system is carried out by means of a PI controller, the influence of the regulator on the energy consumption of the system is shown. The regularities of the formation of angular velocity of various amplitudes when working out a turn in open and closed control systems are noted. The range of electrical parameters at which the engine operates with almost the same power consumption is determined. The lowest power values at which the engine is operable are found. The results of the work are visualized in the form of three-dimensional surfaces, recommendations for the continuation of research are developed.

  • Use of cold storage in the air conditioning system of a sports complex

    Refrigerating machines are designed to cover peak heat generation in public buildings. At the same time, peak loads are often short-term and most of the time the refrigerating machines operate at 40-60% of their maximum capacity. The article deals with the issues of uneven cold consumption on the example of a sports complex located in Volgograd. When designing the air conditioning system of the games hall, a cooling system with the use of "chiller-fan coils"is used. An effective solution to reduce costs is to include a cold storage battery in the cooling station circuit. The use of a cold storage battery allows you to reduce operating costs.

  • The risk of a special purpose automated information system being in a critical condition

    The article proposes a method for assessing the risk of a possible stay of an automated special-purpose information system in a critical state, based on the synthesis of two heterogeneous mathematical models, one of which allows taking into account the intensity of DDOS attacks and the intensity of application processing, based on Markov processes, and the second is one of the forms of a formal description of protection systems, with complete overlap, in which the interaction of the "threat area", "protected area" is considered – areas of resources of an automated information system for special purposes, and "protection systems" – security mechanisms of an automated information system. The developed method makes it possible to simulate the information security tools included in the automated information system for special purposes, under the influence of DDOS attacks, taking into account both the empirical values obtained as a result of measurements or modeling, and the theoretical base of parameters specified by input data. In the synthesis of the two models, the lack of uncertainty of some of the input parameters, taking into account the values based on expert estimates, was eliminated.
