  • Subject-oriented rationale for the choice of software for the implementation of BIM technologies compatible with scheduling and network planning in capital construction

    The relevance of the use of information modeling today is of great importance in project management in capital construction. Since many mistakes are made in the design documentation, which subsequently have a negative impact on the implementation of investment projects: this is an increase in construction time, an increase in the cost of a project, a repeated passing of state expertise. The use of BIM technologies will solve the problem of increasing the construction time and reduce the cost of project implementation. The aim of the study is to review and comparatively analyze programs that are being actively implemented in the construction industry. The subject of the research is information modeling tools at the stage of specific activities (BIM-modeling programs). To solve the problem of choosing the best option for the implementation of BIM technologies together with programs aimed at project management using scheduling and network planning, it is proposed to use the Jobs-Decon program. In the process of work, the criteria for evaluating the effectiveness of the programs under study were determined, as a result of which a comprehensive assessment was obtained and the best option was selected with a comprehensive assessment of "3.56". Summing up, we can say that the use of these technologies will reduce the cost of eliminating project collisions, and will also make it possible to avoid disruptions to the contractual deadlines of investment projects in capital construction.

  • Ferroalloy piezoceramic material based on PZT, electrophysical and mechanical properties in a wide temperature range

    The electrophysical and mechanical properties of a piezoceramic material based on CTS are investigated. A number of features in the behavior of the electrophysical properties of the material in the temperature range located significantly below the low-frequency (1 kHz) maximum of the dielectric constant T_m = 160℃ have been revealed. The obtained results indicate the proximity of the studied material to ferroelectric relaxors, in particular, the low coercive field E_c~5 kVcmcm, the significant dependence of T_m on the frequency and amplitude of the measuring field, as well as the behavior of the velocity of longitudinal ultrasonic waves in this ceramic. It is shown that the elastic properties of this material are very close to ferroelectric relaxors, having a high malleability in a very wide temperature range. At the same time, the squareness of the polarization loops at relatively low temperatures indicates the manifestation of the classical properties of the ferroelectric during the polarization switching processes, and not the "freezing" processes characteristic of ferroelectric relaxors. From the results obtained, it can be established that this composition will be promising for use in the actuators of adaptive optics systems and precision positioning devices due to the high values of piezomodules.

  • Analysis of the possibilities of modal management in enterprise quality management systems

    The work is devoted to the study of the possibilities of ensuring the unconditional achievement of the goals of industrial enterprises with a combination of modal management and linear regulation with cost optimization in the operational and tactical management of quality management systems. The commonality of dependencies in modal control and linear regulation is shown. An approach to the combination of modal control and linear regulation is proposed, including the determination of the possibilities for changing the elements of the system matrix, as well as the search for optimal or rational solutions based on cost accounting. The application of this approach is considered on the example of the activity of an industrial enterprise. It is established that modal control has no advantages over linear control, since it is used to increase the stability of systems. The performance of quality management systems can be ensured when it is transferred to an unstable mode of operation, however, the use of this mode cannot exceed two to three years.

  • The main aspects of adaptive management of the property complex of the territory

    The development of urbanized territories, as a rule, is associated with the expansion of urban space, which, in turn, leads to an increase in the load on transport systems and social infrastructure. Geographically divided areas have weak interconnection due to the lack of highways and public transport. At the same time, the infrastructure of the outskirts differs from the center in scarcity and monotony. An increase in the urban population, a change in the natural and climatic conditions of residence, the environment in urbanized areas, a steady increase in the value of real estate make it necessary to accelerate the pace of the integrated development of urban spaces. The most important task set today for the subjects of management of the municipality is related to the optimization and effective use of the objects of the existing property complex. The renovation process will affect morally obsolete and abandoned facilities that impede the integrated development of the territory, reduce investment attractiveness and reduce the volume of the tax base. Adaptive management will increase the efficiency of the use of existing territorial resources, improve the social and environmental conditions of the urbanized space. Involvement of the existing reserve of real estate objects in the city center will create conditions for the formation of new public and business spaces in the city, which is important for the comfortable living of the population.

  • 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. With the help of the algorithm, all the parameters of sustainable development management are achieved, including reducing air pollution, reducing fuel consumption and reducing the destruction of the road surface. Finally, thanks to the integration of the GLONASS/GPS software, the output data of the algorithm was mapped to the map.

  • Study of vibration-damping properties of zinc electroplating deposited on a substrate of Cr18 gray cast iron

    The presence of vibration loads in any node or unit almost always leads to negative consequences in one way or another. Vibrations affect both biological objects and materials. High level of vibrations, under certain conditions can even lead to the destruction of the surfaces of parts and node as a whole. The purpose of these studies was to study the vibration-absorbing ability of zinc electroplating, used to restore the seating holes of the housing parts of machines. The main task was to determine the presence and the level of vibration-absorbing ability of zinc in relation to grey cast iron SCh18. The research was carried out on a laboratory prototype of a gearbox (gear reducer) with the use of vibration sensors and an oscilloscope. As a result, the vibration damping ability of galvanic zinc was proved and the comparative level of vibration damping in comparison with Cr18 cast iron was determined. For this study, zinc was electroplated from sulfuric acid electrolyte on the inner surface of the cast iron shells. First, readings were taken without zinc plating, then a 0.1 mm zinc layer was applied and readings were taken. After obtaining the data, the zinc layer was removed mechanically, the next 0.2 mm coating layer was applied and the readings were taken. The process was repeated with a coating interval of 0.1 mm until the zinc electroplating thickness of 0.6 mm was reached.

  • Computational and theoretical analysis of changes in the thermal gaps of the "piston-sleeve" interfaces during the removal of carbon

    Carbon formation in diesel engines affects an increase in the temperature of the sleeve, a decrease in the thickness of the oil film, an increase in oil fumes, which causes more intensive wear of the piston group cylinder parts. According to the theory of heat exchange, the heat flow from the working fluid (combustion products) is directed perpendicular to the surface of the piston bottom and is proportional to the equivalent temperature to the average heat transfer coefficient per cycle. Heat can also be supplied to the side surface of the piston bottom, but since the thermal gap between the piston head and the cylinder is small, the heat flow is insignificant. The deposition of carbon deposits on the bottom of the piston and cylinder head causes a slight decrease in its temperature, but at the same time the temperature of the cylinder liner increases, which causes a change in the gaps of the "piston-sleeve" interfaces. Experimental determination of interface gaps on a running engine is associated with significant difficulties. As a result, a computational and theoretical analysis of changes in the magnitude of thermal gaps was performed with a decrease in the thickness of the carbon layer on the bottom of the piston. The deposition of carbon deposits on the bottom of the piston indicates less favorable operating conditions of the piston-sleeve conjugations due to an increase in the dynamic performance of the cycle.
