**ONE-DIMENSIONAL PLANE MONOCHROMATIC FILTRATION WAVES**

Equations and relations to describe one-dimensional plane monochromatic fi ltration waves in a homogeneous
isotropic porous medium have been obtained. To this end, use was made of the equation of motion of a liquid phase
with account of frictional forces, which in the case of steady-state fi ltration with parallel streamlines agrees with
Darcy′s filtration law for an anisotropic medium. The equations of motion and continuity reduced to an equation of
telegraphy enabled us to construct relations for the wave number, the absorption and attenuation coeffi cients, and
the velocity of fi ltration waves.
The expression for the phase velocity, the absorption coeffi cient, and the wave number of fi ltration waves has
made it possible to investigate the correlation between this velocity and the velocity of elastic acoustic waves and
the dependence on frequency. The extended theory of fi ltration-wave pressure fi elds refi nes the ideas of propagation
of monochromatic fi ltration wave disturbances in a porous medium and confi rms the substantial decrease in the
velocity in the low-frequency region compared to the velocity of propagation of elastic waves.

**SIMULATION OF ANOMALOUS OIL FILTRATION IN A POROUS BED**

The problems of modeling the processes of filtration of anomalous structurized oils with coagulation structures
present in a porous bed are considered. An equation for the fi ltration of Bingham fluids in a carrier bed that accounts
for the dependence of the fi ltration rate on the pressure gradient and shear stress has been derived. Models for
calculating the effective viscosity and mobility of oil depending on the change of the pressure gradient in the bed and
of the concentration of particles in it have been developed. A comparison of these models with the experimental data
available in the literature for various wells yielded satisfactory results.

The problem on the evolution of the state of an ensemble of reacting coke–ash particles in a fl uidized-bed gas
generator is considered. A kinetic equation for the distribution function of particles within small ranges of carbon
concentration variation for the stages of surface and bulk reaction has been constructed and integrated. Boundary
conditions ("matching" conditions) at the boundaries between these ranges are formulated. The infl uence of the

his paper considers the problem of mathematical simulation of the stressed-strained state of the foundation of
the earth dam with account for the heat and mass transfer in the presence of a free surface of ground waters. We

**DEPOSITION OF HEAVY PARTICLES FROM A SPHERICAL CLOUD ON THE EARTH′S SURFACE. ANALYTICAL SOLUTION**

Analytical solutions of the problems on deposition of particles from a spherical cloud on the earth′s surface have
been obtained for two cases: the wind velocity in the ground layer of the atmosphere is invariable with height and the
wind velocity follows a linear law. Analytical formulas have been suggested for calculating the surface concentration
of deposited particles with an arbitrary function of their size distribution, as well as the geometrical parameters of
the deposition region.

**FORMATION OF A COMPOSITE BASED ON POLYURETHANE WITH CARBON NANOTUBES AND SHUNGITE**

hysicomechanical and electrophysical characteristics of a polyurethane composite doped with carbon-containing
materials have been investigated. It has been found that the roughness of the sample’s surface and also the porosity
increase with the concentration of the dopant. Volt-ampere characteristics of composite materials point to the
activated type of conductivity in these materials; however, at a temperature of nearly 340 K, the type of conductivity
is changed. Also, the frequency dependence of the conductivity has been established.

**INFLUENCE OF CONDITIONS EMPLOYED IN APPLICATION OF Ti–Zr–Si–N NANOSTRUCTURED COATINGS ON THEIR COMPOSITION, STRUCTURE, AND TRIBOMECHANICAL PROPERTIES **

Nanostructured coatings of thickness from 1.5 to 2 μm are applied to Ar+ ions-prepurifi ed stainless steel substrates by means of reactive magnetron sputtering of composite targets with the content of Ti–Zr–Si components 56, 36, 8 at.% and 36, 56, 8 at.%, respectively. Using the methods of Rutherford back scattering and transmission electron microscopy, we studied the structure of the coatings obtained, their phase composition, and the distribution of components over the depth of coatings. The microhardness of coatings was measured and their basic tribomechanical characteristics were investigated. The dependence of the composition and properties of coatings on the conditions
of their application has been examined. The optimum regimes of application of coatings with high tribomechanical
properties that ensure microhardness of coating of 31 GPa and double decrease in the friction coeffi cient have been
determined.

**PARAMETRIC INVESTIGATION OF THE KINETICS OF GROWTH OF CARBON-NANOTUBE ARRAYS ON IRON NANOPARTICLES IN THE PROCESS OF CHEMICAL VAPOR DEPOSITION OF HYDROCARBONS**

On the basis of the kinetic model of synthesis of carbon nanotubes on iron nanoparticles in the process of chemical
vapor deposition of hydrocarbons, the parametric dependences of characteristics of arrays of vertically oriented
nanotubes on the temperature of their synthesis, the concentration of acetylene in a reactor, and the diameter of the
catalyst nanoparticles were investigated. It is shown that the maximum on the temperature dependence of the rate of
growth of carbon nanotubes, detected in experiments at a temperature of ~700^{o}C is due to the competing processes
of increasing the catalytic activity of iron nanoparticles and decreasing the acetylene concentration because of the
signifi cant gas-phase decomposition of acetylene in the reactor before it enters the substrate with the catalyst. Our
calculations have shown that the indicated maximum arises near the transition point separating the low-temperature
region where multiwall nanotubes are predominantly synthesized from the higher-temperature region of generation
of single-wall nanotubes in the process of chemical vapor deposition of hydrocarbons.

**INFLUENCE OF THE FERMENTATION OF PINEAPPLE WASTES WITH THE USE OF METHANOBACTERIUM STRAINS SEPARATED IN VIETNAM ON THE PRODUCTION OF BIOGAS FROM THEM**

When pineapples are processed, the wastes obtained comprise 30–50% of the raw-material weight. These wastes
contain sugar, albumins, lipids, and vitamins that decompose under the action of microorganisms existing in nature
and, in so doing, pollute the environment. The use of wastes in plants operating on biogas makes it possible to obtain
great economic benefi ts. It was established that the best conditions for the obtaining biogas from pineapple wastes
are realized in the case where Methanobacterium strains are used for increasing the rate of fermentation of these
wastes and the wastes have a temperature of 35–45^{o}
C, a pH index of 7–7.5 at the initial stage of their fermentation,
and a C/N ratio of 30/1. Under these conditions, the MT3, MT5, and MT7 strains of Methanobacterium yield the
maximum amounts of biogases containing, respectively, 57.4% of CH4 and 36.1% of CO_{2}, 57.2% of CH_{4} and 36.3%
of CO_{2}, and 57.4% of CH_{4} and 36.2% of CO_{2}

**DETERMINATION OF THE DYNAMIC STRESSES IN AN INFINITE PLATE ON THE BASIS OF AN EXACT ANALYTICAL SOLUTION OF THE HYPERBOLIC HEAT-CONDUCTION EQUATION FOR IT**

With the use of an exact analytical solution of the classical hyperbolic heat-conduction equation, derived on the basis
of the Maxwell–Cattaneo–Luikov relaxation formula, an exact analytical solution of the problem on the dynamic
thermoelasticity of an infi nite plate was obtained for the case where the outer surfaces of this plate are free of
mechanical loads. It is shown that the undamped thermoelastic stresses in this plate vary spasmodically in time with
periodic change in their sign. The stress jumps arising near the opposite outer surfaces of the indicated plate move
along the spatial variable to its center where they superimpose, with the result that the dynamic thermal stresses in
the plate double.

**MATHEMATICAL SIMULATION OF THE LOCALLY NONEQUILIBRIUM HEAT TRANSFER IN A BODY WITH ACCOUNT FOR ITS NONLOCALITY IN SPACE AND TIME**

Differential equations for the locally nonequilibrium heat transfer in an infi nite plate, in which the nonlocality of this
plate in space and time is taken into account, have been derived. Exact analytical solutions of these equations were
obtained and analyzed in detail. This analysis has shown that, in the case where the nonlocality of the plate in space
and time is taken into account in the indicated equations, they do not give abrupt changes in the temperature of the
plate and negative temperatures for it. It was established that, in locally nonequilibrium processes, the fi rst-kind
boundary conditions (a heat shock) cannot be realized instantaneously at any conditions of heat exchange between
a body and the environment and that, consequently, in the process of this exchange, the coeffi cient of heat transfer
cannot exceed any limiting values determined by the physical properties (including the relaxation ones) of the body

**WEIGHTED TEMPERATURE IDENTITIES**

It has been shown that the differential heat conduction equation together with the boundary conditions can be recast
as a sequence consisting of integral identities for the weighted temperature. Weight functions take into account the
properties of the heat conduction equation and the boundary conditions. The sequence of identities was constructed
on the basis of multiple differentiation or integration operators. Using the search for eigenvalues of the boundary
value problem as an example, we have demonstrated the high effi ciency of such systems.

**INVESTIGATION OF THE AERODYNAMIC DRAG OF AN EIGHT-CHANNEL CENTRIFUGAL FILTER**

The aerodynamic characteristics and the structure of vortices of the central region of the channel system of an eightchannel
centrifugal fi lter have been investigated. An overview of the foreign and home literature on the fi ltration of
solid particles in the gas fl ow in centrifugal apparatuses is given [1, 2]. We present the design and the principle of
operation of the eight-channel centrifugal fi lter based on a system of curvilinear channels with equal turn angles
and equal cross-sectional areas connected in series. We have performed numerical calculations of the dependence
of the aerodynamic drag of the centrifugal fi lter on the rate of fl ow obtained by three different methods: analytical
calculation, experiments on the laboratory facility, and with the help of modern means of computer modeling.
Computational modeling of the fl ow was carried out by solving Reynolds (RANS, Reynolds-averaged Navier–Stokes)
equations by the SFD method with the use of a k–ε model of turbulence for three modes of operation of the apparatus.
The results of computer modeling permitted visualizing the vortex structure of the central region of the separation
chamber in the form of 3D graphs. The obtained results have been confi rmed experimentally on a laboratory model
of the centrifugal filter of capacity up to 200 m^{3}/h of purifi ed air.

**OPTIMUM GASDYNAMIC CONDITIONS OF USE OF A RAILGUN ACCELERATOR FOR SPRAYING OF VARIOUS MATERIALS ON TARGET SURFACES**

A model of plasma outfl ow from the channel of a railgun accelerator to an inert-gas atmosphere has been developed
with the aim of optimizing the process of deposition of the substance from the plasma phase on the target. It has been
established that the interaction between the plasma jet formed from the plug material at exit from the railotron and
the gas fl ow preceding the plug must be minimized. It has been shown that the conditions necessary are suffi ciently
universal and are reduced to correct choice of the distance at which the target must be installed in relation to the

**MAGNETOGASDYNAMIC CYLINDRICAL SHOCK WAVES IN A ROTATING NONIDEAL GAS WITH RADIATION HEAT FLUX**

A similarity solution is presented for a cylindrical magnetogasdynamic shock wave in a rotating nonideal gas in the presence of a variable axial magnetic fi eld in the case where the radiation heat flux is of importance. The initial angular velocity of the medium is assumed to vary as some power of the distance from the symmetry axis. The radiation heat flux is evaluated from the equation of motion without explicit use of the radiation transfer equations. It is shown that the gas nonidealness increases the shock strength but decreases the shock velocity. On the other hand,
the presence of a magnetic fi eld decreases the shock strength but increases the shock velocity. Moreover, the shock
velocity increases with the ratio of specifi c heats. The total energy of the shock wave increases with time.
