SOLUTION OF ILL-POSED PROBLEMS ON THE PREDICTION OF NONSTATIONARY REGIMES OF WORK OF A REACTOR FOR FISCHER–TROPSCH SYNTHESIS
On the basis of analysis of experimental data on the temperature in a reactor for Fischer–Tropsch synthesis, a method for prediction of loss in thermal stability of such a reactor by extrapolating the reactor temperature in time with the use of the first-order and second-order time derivatives of experimental data on this temperature has been developed. Since, in this case, the calculation of derivatives is an incorrect procedure because of the rapid changes in the reactor temperature and the accidental errors in its measurement, this problem was solved using the Tikhonov stabilizing-functional method. An integro-differential equation of calculating the fi rst-order and second-order time derivatives of experimental temperatures of the reactor, providing a minimum of the stabilizing functional, has been derived. The possibility of predicting the behavior of the temperature in a reactor under the conditions of loss in its thermal stability was demonstrated through the comparison of calculation and experimental data on the reactor temperature. The method proposed can be used for development of an automated system for control over the working conditions of a reactor for Fischer–Tropsch synthesis for prevention of its thermal explosion.

FINITE-ELEMENT MODELING IN THE TECHNOLOGY OF HARDENING LASER PROCESSING OF A METAL-CUTTING TOOL
A problem on heating of a cutting tool by triangularly shaped pulsed laser radiation has been solved numerically in a three-dimensional formulation by the fi nite-element method. The developed model takes account of the infl uence of both the geometry of the tool and the spatial and temporal characteristics of laser radiation on the formation of a temperature fi eld in the laser-processing zone. A study has been made of the temperature distribution on the front face of the tool and over the depth of the laser-impingement point for different positions of the center of a laser-processing spot relative to the major cutting edge. For different tool angles, the regularities of formation of a temperature fi eld during the hardening by pulsed laser radiation have been established; processing regimes (energy density, the multiplicity of processing, and the position of the center of the laser-processing spot relative to the tool′s cutting edges) that ensure the best parameters of the laser-impingement point (maximum hardening depth and the hardening-zone length) have been determined. A procedure to select technological parameters for the process of hardening of the cutting tool has been developed

DUAL SERIES METHOD FOR SOLVING A HEAT EQUATION WITH MIXED BOUNDARY CONDITIONS
The paper is devoted to solving a nonhomogeneous nonstationary heat equation in cylindrical coordinates with a nonaxial symmetry. This equation is subjected to nonhomogeneous, mixed, and discontinuous boundary conditions of the second and third kinds that are specifi ed on the disk of a fi nite cylinder surface. In fact, the solution of the given problem is obtained by using a new type of dual series equations (DSEs) with a Bessel function of the fi rst kind. In particular, DSEs reduce the problem to a Fredholm integral equation of the second kind which can be solved numerically by several effi cient methods.

PARABOLIC PROFILE IN HEAT-CONDUCTION PROBLEMS. 2. SEMI-BOUNDED SPACE WITH A TIME-VARYING SURFACE TEMPERATURE
Some approaches to the optimization of the exponent n in the parabolic temperature profi le for a semi-bounded space at a boundary condition with a time-varying surface temperature are considered. It is shown that solutions obtained using the scheme of T. Myers with minimization of the Langford norm are not even close to the optimum ones and that the minimization scheme based on the new error norm estimating the modulus of a temperature deviation is much more effi cient. New hybrid integral schemes convenient to use are proposed. Parabolic solutions have been obtained on the basis of a number of integral relations: the temperature-momentum integrals of single and double modifi cations and the temperature-function integral. On the basis of these solutions in combination with known integral relations, different variations of the hybrid integral method have been developed. It was established that the highest approximation accuracy is provided by the hybrid scheme combining the temperature-momentum integrals of single and double modifi cations. It is shown that the hybrid integral schemes proposed are much more accurate compared to the known integral methods, including those realized using the scheme with minimization of the Langford norm. In particular, for a semi-bounded space with a surface of constant temperature, the hybrid integral method variant combining the temperature-momentum integral of single modifi cation and the refi ned integral method makes it possible to obtain a simple cubic parabola representing a substantially better approximation solution compared to the temperature profi le obtained on the basis of the refi ned integral method with optimization of the exponent n by the scheme of T. Myers.

An analysis has been made of a novel class of recuperative heat exchangers for cooling of compact surfaces in electronic systems for various object-oriented purposes with a matrix of fi lamentary silicon single crystals grown directly on the heat-liberating boundary. A mathematical model has been proposed based on the assumption of the regime of ideal displacement of the heat-transfer agent in the form of a system of equations of two-temperature convective heat transfer with volume averaging over the element in a porous skeleton. The solution of the system has been obtained in analytical form. The experiment conducted on a pilot plant has confi rmed the adequacy of the mathematical model

MECHANISMS OF FORMATION OF NANOPARTICLES IN AQUEOUS SALT SOLUTIONS UNDER THE ACTION OF A HIGH-POWER PERIODIC LASER RADIATION
The average temperature of a gas cloud formed in an aqueous solution of a gold salt under the action of a nanosecond laser-radiation pulse with a wavelength of 532 nm was calculated. It is shown that the average temperature of such a cloud reaches thousands of degrees for several nanoseconds, and the collisions of molecules in it cause the dissociation of all the chemical compounds in the cloud. As the cloud is cooled, the gold vapor is supersaturated, and solid gold clusters nucleate and grow in it. The repeated laser pulses heat not only the solution but also the gold nanoparticles formed in it, with the result that relatively large nanoparticles are evaporated, and the temperature of the particles with a radius of about 5 nm reaches only the melting point

INFLUENCE OF THE NANOSTRUCTURED-CARBON-BASED PLASTICIZING ADMIXTURE IN A SELF-COMPACTING CONCRETE MIX ON ITS TECHNOLOGICAL PROPERTIES
A study has been made of the infl uence of adding a nanostructured-carbon-based plasticizing admixture to a self-compacting concrete mix on the properties of heavy-weight structural concrete produced from it. It has been shown that this admixture in the concrete mix changes its structure and makes it possible to produce concrete with exceptional physicomechanical properties. Furthermore, the plasticizing admixture added to a concrete mix ensures the high degree of preservation of its placeability to provide a possibility of transporting this mix for a long period and of using it in monolithic construction. The indicated admixture in the concrete mix reduces its water–cement ratio to 0.2 and ensures good placeability of the mix, which guarantees the high rate of its hardening and considerable improvement in the strength of concrete based on this mix

EXPLOSION BREAKDOWN OF DROPS OF EMULSIONS OF WATER WITH PETROLEUM PRODUCTS AS A RESULT OF THEIR INTENSIVE HEATING
The conditions and characteristics of intensive evaporation of very inhomogeneous drops of emulsions of water with petroleum products (gasoline, kerosene, residual oil, heavy crude, transformer oil, turbine oil) were experimentally investigated at relative volume concentrations of these products in emulsions varying in the wide range from 10 to 70% corresponding to a large number of high-temperature (1100 K) processes occurring with gas and vapor drops, such as the heat and fl ame purifi cations of water and the production of a synthetic gas from fuel emulsions and suspensions based on water. The conditions of explosion breakdown of emulsion drops in the process of their heating have been determined. Three regimes of breakdown of emulsion drops, differing in the number of small droplets formed and in their surface area, were separated. Proposals were made on the mechanisms of the physical processes leading to the transformation of the surface of emulsion drops and their explosion breakdown.

REFLECTION OF ACOUSTIC WAVE FROM THE BOUNDARY OF A TWO-FRACTION POLYDISPERSE GAS SUSPENSION
The problem of normal incidence of an acoustic wave on the interface between a pure gas and a gas suspension is considered. The case of gas suspension consisting of two fractions, each of which is polydisperse and is described by a certain size distribution function of inclusions has been studied. The dependences of the phase velocity and refl ection coeffi cient on the frequency of perturbations are calculated. The infl uence exerted by the size distribution function of inclusions, as well as by the mass content on inclusions of the dependences of the refl ection coeffi cient on the frequency of perturbations has been established.

In the present paper, the authors have given nonsteady and numerical solutions to a certain initial boundary-value problem for dynamics equations of a two-phase two-velocity medium (Kh. A. Rakhmatulin′s model). To this end, a numerical method of the TVD type was developed and relevant testing calculations were carried out. A comparison of the calculation data and the analytical solution has been given. The comparison results have shown their satisfactory agreement, i.e., the effectiveness of the numerical scheme. The domain of hyperbolicity of the model under study on this solution has been found.

FRACTAL MODEL OF THE SURFACE FILM FORMED IN THE PROCESS OF DRYING OF LIQUID DISPERSE PRODUCTS ON SUBSTRATES
This paper presents a model of the formation of the surface fi lm in the process of drying liquid dispersed products on solid substrates. The surface fi lm is modeled by constructing a fractal cluster formed on the basis of the algorithm of diffusion-controlled clustering with account for the accidental appearance of new particles within the limits of the contact line and calculating the formation kinetics of the modeled surface. We have obtained experimental values of the fractal dimension of the formed surface structures in the process of convective drying on substrates of a liquid post-liquor slop and a concrete plasticizer. The formula for calculating the probability of particle coalescence is given, it permits estimating the kinetic characteristics of the process of surface structure formation by drying

ON THE THEORY OF PRESSURE RELAXATION IN AN UNDERGROUND TANK WITH A DAMAGED WALL
A study has been made of the process of pressure relaxation in a liquid-fi lled tank with impaired leakproofness, which is found in the ground. Assuming that the leak rate is limited by fi ltration characteristics of the ground surrounding the tank, the authors have constructed a theoretical model representing a linear integral equation. Here, the obtained equation has an exact analytical solution. On the basis of a numerical analysis of this solution, the authors have analyzed the infl uence of the scale of the damaged portion of tank walls, the permeability of the ground, and also the rheological properties of the liquid on the rate of pressure relaxation (decay) in the tank after its sudden pressure testing.

NUMERICAL SOLUTION OF THE PROBLEM OF FLOW PAST PROJECTED BODIES FOR DETERMINING THEIR AERODYNAMIC COEFFICIENTS
The method of solving the problem of external fl ow past a body for calculating the aerodynamic characteristics of projected bodies of complex geometrical shape is presented. Two approaches to the solution of the problem are considered: a numerical solution of the Favre-averaged Navier–Stokes equations with the use of the turbulence model and simulation of large vortices on the basis of the Navier–Stokes equations, in which numerical dissipation acts as a subgrid model of turbulence. Testing the results of calculations for the problem of fl ow past bodies by various methods showed their good correspondence to each other and with experimental data. For a projected body of a characteristic shape (missile) numerical simulation is made for a wide range of parameters: Mach numbers, angles of attack, and rotation speeds. Approximation dependences of the coeffi cients of aerodynamic forces and moments are constructed that can be used further for calculating the trajectories of projected bodies.

EXPERIMENTAL INVESTIGATION OF THE INFLUENCE OF THE SHAPE OF ICE OUTGROWTHS ON THE AERODYNAMIC CHARACTERISTICS OF THE WING
The results of experimental investigations of the aerodynamic characteristics of the wing of NACA 0012 profi le subjected to icing are presented. The ice accreted to the leading edge was simulated by appendages. The form and roughness of the outgrowths corresponded to the icing regimes typical of the formation of a glassy ice. Experiments were carried out in a wide range of angles of attack α = –4–18o in an AT-4 low-speed wind tunnel of the Kharkov Aviation Institute on a wing of rectangular shape with elongation λ = 5 at the Reynolds number Re = 0.67·106 and fl ow velocity V∞ = 53 m/s. It is shown that in the cases considered, a change in the aerodynamic shape of the wing as a result of icing leads to a decrease in the lift force of the wing down to 50%, to a decrease in the angle of fl ow stalling to a value of α ~ 6o , and to a considerable (several times) increase in the drag

INTENSE REGIME OF VIBRATORY COMBUSTION OF BIOFUEL
Experimental investigation of the vibratory combustion of a solid biofuel (wood pellets) has been conducted. In some experiments, a signifi cant enhancement of acoustic radiation with vibratory combustion of the pellets was observed which was accompanied by the increase in their burnup rate. In the event of such a regime the fl ame temperature decreased, whereas the density of the heat fl ux on the combustion-chamber wall increased due to the turbulization of the boundary layer. An empirical-theoretical dependence to calculate heat transfer in intense regimes of vibratory combustion of the solid biofuel has been obtained.

NUMERICAL INVESTIGATIONS OF THE PROCESSES OF BURNING A GASEOUS FUEL IN THE FURNACE OF THE DE-10/14 STEAM WATER-TUBE BOILER WITH A SECONDARY TUBULAR RADIATOR
The processes of burning a gaseous fuel in the furnace of the DE-10/14 steam water-tube boiler have been investigated numerically. The temperature and velocity distributions of the gases in the furnace space of the boiler, as well as the concentrations of combustion components have been determined. It has been shown that placing a secondary radiator along the horizontal axis of the burner in the furnace space of the boiler promotes the formation of a uniform temperature fi eld along the length of the furnace and a decrease in the temperature in its space, and the reverse fl ow of combustion products to the combustion front provides a decrease in the concentration of nitrogen oxides to 123–125 mg/m3 at the furnace outlet.

INFLUENCE OF THE IRRADIATION WITH HIGH-ENERGY Xe IONS ON THE STRUCTURE AND PHOTOLUMINESCENCE OF SILICON AND SILICA WITH InAs NANOCLUSTERS
The authors have given results of investigations into the structural and optical properties of InAs nanoclusters formed by the ion-implantation method in silicon and silica matrices. The infl uence of the heat treatment at a temperature of 900o C and of the irradiation with Xe ions with an energy of 167 MeV and a fl uence of 3·1014 cm –2 on the structure and photoluminescence of the formed systems has been found. In the case of the system ″InAs in SiO2″ the irradiation with Xe ions leads to an enhancement of the intensity and a broadening of the luminescence spectrum in the visible spectral region (550–750 nm). The ordering of the nanoclusters and their stretching along the path of the Xe ions in the SiO2 matrix has been found.

The upper surface of the plate is taken to be traction free and heated by a laser beam, and the lower surface to be thermally insulated. The chemical potential on the bounding surface is assumed to be a known function of time. An analytical solution of the problem is derived in the Laplace–Fourier transform domain. The numerical inversions for the stresses, displacement, chemical potential, etc. in the space–time domain are obtained

DIFFERENTIAL MODELS OF RHEOLOGICALLY NONSTATIONARY FLUIDS
An analysis has been made of basic differential models of rheologically nonstationary (viscoelastic) fl uids as well as of their development and interrelation. The considered models cover a rich variety of viscoelastic media: polymer solutions and melts, natural formations (glaciers), and others. Among these models, a key role is played by the Maxwell upper convection model: it provides a theoretical basis for experimental determination of the dynamic characteristics of viscoelastic fl uids and for development of new rheological models. It has been shown that to improve the reliability of results obtained with the aid of a complex rheological model, it is expedient to ensure a possibility of reducing it to the existing models and thus fi nding analytical solutions for a number of the simplest fl ows. Examples of use of the models in question when results of rheometric investigations are approximated and viscoelastic-fl uid fl ows are calculated have been given. Special emphasis has been placed on an analysis of the correspondence of the derived solutions to the physical essence of the described processes, and also of the correctness of interpretation of some results or others.

INTEGRAL MODELS OF RHEOLOGICALLY NONSTATIONARY FLUIDS
Consideration has been given to the status and prospects for development of integral models of rheologically nonstationary (viscoelastic) fl uids. The predominant fi eld of application of these models are media with a fairly long relaxation time (concentrated polymer solutions and melts, biological tissues, foams, and others), for which taking account of the preceding states assumes substantial importance. The emphasis has been placed on today′s integral models developed on the basis of a classical Kaye–Bernstein–Kearsely–Zapas model through singling out viscous and purely elastic components in the potential function of the medium′s stored energy (so-called factorization of the K-BKZ model). An analysis has been made of the thixotropy and rheopexy phenomena caused by the lag of the reaction of response of rheologically nonstationary fl uids to external action. The authors have shown the expediency of the loop test used in determining the integral parameters of motion of viscoelastic fl uids (velocity, fl ow rate, pressure difference, etc.), and also the possibility of using a fl ow curve representing the averaging of the ascending and descending branches of a hysteresis loop in the case of its small width.
