PRIGOGINE THEOREM FOR THE PROCESS OF ROLLING OF A VISCOPLASTIC STRIP
Consideration is given to slow plane isothermal flow of a viscoplastic strip in rolling. Tangential stresses are assigned at the boundary of contact of the strip with the roll and at the boundaries between the flow region and the back and head rigid ends of the strip. A defi nition is provided for possible perturbations of the velocities of travel for special stationary flows of a viscoplastic strip in rolling. Minimum entropy production is proved for special stationary flows with respect to possible perturbations of velocities of travel (Prigogine theorem).

NUMERICAL DESCRIPTION OF ACOUSTIC VIBRATIONS OF A VAPOR–GAS–DROPLET MIXTURE IN A CLOSED CHANNEL BASED ON A ONE-VELOCITY, ONE-TEMPERATURE MODEL
The paper describes a mathematical model and the results of numerical calculations of resonance acoustic vibrations of a vapor–gas–droplet mixture in a closed volume under the action of periodic acoustic waves generated by a harmonically vibrating piston. The numerical method of solving the equations of the model is based on MacCormack′s scheme. The model of equilibrium phase transitions used in the numerical scheme has allowed a chart of regimes of the vapor–gas–droplet mixture vibrations to be constructed depending on the initial vapor content. In accordance with the piston vibration amplitude, the limit of the critical vapor content below which vapor condensation is impossible has been found.

ON THE LIMITING CASES RELATED TO FLOW PAST A ZHUKOVSKII SHEET PILE
Within the framework of the Darcy′s theory of plane steady fi ltration of an incompressible liquid, two limiting schemes are considered that model filtration flows under a Zhukovskii sheet pile through a large mass of ground underlain by an impermeable base or by a permeable water-bearing pressure horizon. For purposes of analyzing these schemes, mixed boundary-layer problems of the theory of analytical functions are formulated that are solved with the aid of the Polubarinova-Kochina method. Based on these models, algorithms have been developed for calculating a saturation zone in those cases where, while considering the motion of water, one has to take into account the exposure of flow pattern to the combined effect of such important factors as backwater from the side of the impermeable base or of the underlying well permeable water-bearing bed, evaporation or infi ltration on the free groundwater surface, as well as the ground capillarity.

DIRECTIONAL DIAGRAMS OF THE PARTICLE DRIFT IN A STANDING WAVE WITH ACCOUNT OF THE BASSET FORCE
A study is made of the threshold parametric values at which the direction of the particle drift in a standing wave is reversed, with account taken of the Basset force at different Reynolds and Strouhal numbers. The dependences of the threshold value squared of the entrainment coeffi cient on the relative density of the particle with account and without account of the Basset force are found. The infl uence of the Basset force on the threshold value of the density parameter is investigated. It is shown that account taken of the Basset force exerts a particularly strong infl uence on the threshold curves for nondense particles. The threshold values of density of the particle and of the coeffi cient of its entrainment decrease as the Strouhal number increases.

NUMERICAL INVESTIGATION OF LAMINAR HEAT TRANSFER OF NANOFLUID-COOLED MINI-RECTANGULAR FIN HEAT SINKS
The single- and two-phase models in three-dimensional analysis are applied to study laminar convective heat transfer of nanofluids in a minichannel heat sink. The nanofluids with suspending TiO2 nanoparticles of average diameter 21 nm are prepared by ultrasound with a constant nanoparticle concentration of 0.4 vol.% without using surfactants. Experiments are carried out to verify the predicted results. It is shown that the results obtained from the two-phase model are more precise in comparison with the experimental results than those from the single-phase model. The predicted heat transfer coefficients for nanofl uids are higher than those for water

ANALYTICAL SOLUTIONS OF HEAT-CONDUCTION PROBLEMS WITH TIME-VARYING HEAT-TRANSFER COEFFICIENTS
The problem on heat conduction of an infi nite plate with a heat-transfer coeffi cient changing linearly with time for third-kind boundary conditions was solved analytically based on determination of the front of a temperature disturbance in this plate and introduction of additional boundary conditions. On the basis of the solution obtained, graphs of the distribution of isotherms in the indicated plate and the velocities of their movement along a spatial variable in it were constructed. As a result of the solution of the inverse problem on the heat conduction of the infinite plate with the use of the results of numerical calculation of the change in its temperature at any point on the indicated spatial coordinate, the Predvoditelev number was identifi ed with an accuracy of 2%, which made it possible to determine the time dependence of the heat-transfer coeffi cient of the plate.

MICROWAVE ELECTROMAGNETIC METHOD OF MELTING THE PARAFFIN PLUG IN AN OPEN COAXIAL SYSTEM
The formation of the temperature profi le in an open coaxial system with a paraffin plug interacting with a microwave electromagnetic field has been investigated experimentally. It has been shown that the temperature distribution in the pipes is nonuniform, corresponding to the standing electromagnetic wave formed in the interelectrode space by the refl ection of electromagnetic waves from the oil pool and the coaxial line inhomogeneities. The presence of paraffin in the interpipe space accelerates the process of melting throughout the coaxial system.

THERMAL NATURE OF CONCENTRATION LIMITS OF COMBUSTION
An explanation is proposed for the concentration limits of slow combustion of gas mixtures due to the diffusional–thermal instability of a fl ame and the leading role of the thermal effect of mixture combustion. Basic to this explanation are the following experimental facts obtained for a wide class of mixtures: the concentration limits of slow combustion of a mixture and of its detonation are closely coinciding and depend strongly on the stoichiometric composition of mixture; there is an approximate symmetry relation between the upper and lower combustion limits. It is shown that the fl ame temperature of gas mixtures depends on their stoichiometric composition and that as their stoichiometric relation deviates from unity, the state of mixture combustion approaches the stability threshold beyond which a stationary fl ame cannot exist.

ON THE CORRECTNESS OF INTERPRETING DATA ON DETERMINING THE CAPILLARY PRESSURE IN ROCKS BY THE CENTRIFUGATION METHOD
We have analyzed the common errors made in interpreting centrifugation data with the aim of determining the capillary pressure in rock samples. We propose a method for increasing the reliability of processed data based on the separation of the data set by determining the limiting rotational velocity of the centrifuge corresponding to the attainment of the maximum value of the capillary pressure in the rotating core sample. It has been established that in using the standard centrifugation method it is physically impossible to attain capillary pressures exceeding 1atm. We have improved this method by increasing the initial pressure in the core holder of the centrifuge.

AMPLITUDE-FREQUENCY ANALYSIS OF SIGNALS OF ACOUSTIC EMISSION FROM GRANITE FRACTURED AT ELEVATED TEMPERATURES
The problem of stability of underground structures serving to store radioactive waste, to gasify carbon, and to utilize geothermal energy is associated with the action of elevated temperatures and pressures. The acoustic-emission method makes it possible to monitor the accumulation of microcracks arising in stress fi elds of both thermal and mechanical origin. In this report, the authors give results of a laboratory investigation into the acoustic emission from granite subjected to impact fracture at temperatures of up to 600oC. An amplitude-frequency analysis of acousticemission signals has enabled the authors to evaluate the dimension of the arising microcracks and to determine their character (intergranular or intragranular). It has been shown that intergranular faults on the boundaries between identical minerals predominate at room temperature (purely mechanical action); at a temperature of 300o C (impact plus thermoelastic stresses), there also appear cracks on the quartz–feldspar boundaries; fi nally, at temperatures of 500–600o C, it is intragranular faults that predominate in feldspar. The dimensions of the above three types of microcracks are approximately 2, 0.8, and 0.3 mm respectively
