CALCULATION OF THE THERMODYNAMIC EQUILIBRIUM OF A MULTICOMPONENT TWO-PHASE SYSTEM BASED ON MINIMIZATION OF THE GIBBS POTENTIAL
The authors have proposed a method to model the thermodynamic equilibrium of the two-phase multicomponent system "solution–vapor" by solving a system of ordinary differential equations following from the principles of nonequilibrium thermodynamics and statistical physics. Calculation of the thermodynamics of liquid and vapor phases was based on the equation of state. During the solution of the system of ordinary differential equations, the authors determined the molar volumes of the solution and the vapor, the molar composition of the phases, and the pressures of the onset of boiling of the solution and condensation of the vapor. The proposed method is fundamentally different from the popular empirical Rachford–Rice method. Results of calculating with this method have been presented.

ESTIMATION OF THE MAXIMUM OUTPUT OF THE PROCESS OF RECTIFICATION OF A CONTINUOUS MIXTURE WITH REGARD FOR THE IRREVERSIBILITY OF THE HEAT AND MASS TRANSFER IN IT
The problem on estimation of the maximum production rate of a cascade of rectifi cation columns, in which a continuous mixture is separated into fractions at their boiling points, and of the corresponding amount of heat expended in the rectifi cation process is considered. A method is proposed for determining the order of separating a continuous mixture in such a cascade, minimizing the total heat losses in it, in the case where the temperatures in the dephlegmator and boiler of its columns are close to the boiling temperatures of the interfacial mixture fractions.

INITIAL STAGE OF IMPREGNATION AND EXTRACTION IN MODELING A POROUS MEDIUM BY A TWO-CONTINUA MODEL
The initial stage of impregnation (extraction) is investigated on the basis of the model of mass transfer in a porous material consisting of two continua (bidisperse model) with its specifi cs of diffusion processes in each of them. Particular emphasis was placed on considering asymptotic (analytical) representations of the solutions of corresponding problems under typical additional conditions, in particular, for a body of fi nite dimensions.

ANALYTICAL REGULARITIES OF FILLS OF CO-SIZED AND DIFFERENT-SIZED PARTICLES
Refi ned analytical dependences have been presented for assessing basic parameters of co-sized and different-sized randomly arranged particles and/or granules of fi lls, which make it possible to rigorously assess the properties of the fi lls by the average particle (granule) size, the relation of the average sizes of large and small particles, and the porosity. The presented procedure takes account of the actual properties of powder fi lls and their clustering. It permits determining the porosity, the coeffi cient of internal friction, and the average coordination number of particles or granules in the fi lls. The results obtained from the proposed dependences are in good agreement with experimental data

INFLUENCE OF THE CONCENTRATION OF WATER DROPLETS IN AN AEROSOL CLOUD ON THE CHARACTERISTICS OF THEIR COLLISIONAL INTERACTION
The authors have presented results of experimental investigations into the process of collisions of water droplets in a gas medium with variation of the basic parameters in wide ranges corresponding to advanced gas-vapor-droplet technologies: sizes (radii) 0.1–1 mm, velocities of travel 0–10 m/s, angles of interaction (attack) 0–90o , relative volume concentration 0.1–10–3–8.5·10–3 m3 of water/m3 of the gas, velocity of motion of the fl ow 0–10 m/s, and temperature 20–1000o C; directions of fl ows: opposing, codirectional, and lateral. In processing the experimental results, the emphasis was on the infl uence of the relative volume concentrations of the droplets on the characteristics of their interaction. The relative probabilities of four typical regimes of interaction of the droplets have been calculated: recoil, coagulation, spread, and breakup (reduction in size). Parametric ranges have been shown for droplets for which the concentration growth of the latter in an aerosol leads to an increase in the probability of coagulation, recoil, and size reduction. Also, the authors have presented ranges of variation of the concentration of droplets in a gas medium, in which the probabilities of all the investigated interaction schemes are high. The experimental results have been processed with the existing approaches to generalization by calculating the angular factor of interaction and the Weber number.

HEAT EXCHANGE AND NONISOTHERMAL CRYSTALLIZATION IN FORMATION OF A PLANE VISCOELASTIC FILM
The processes of heat exchange and of nonisothermal crystallization in the formation of a plane viscoelastic polymer fi lm are investigated. The polymer melt is forced through a plane-slitted extrusion head, subjected to uniaxial stretching and simultaneously to cooling in air, and subsequently gaining access onto a batch-off cooling roll. It is assumed that the fi lm is wide enough, and the distance between the extruder head and the batch-off roll is minimum to such a degree that it is possible to neglect the change in the sheet width in the process of longitudinal stretching. A steady nonisothermal process is considered. It is also considered that the gravity and inertial forces and surface stretching can be neglected. From the rheological point of view, the polymer melt represents a viscoelastic fl uid. The upper-convected Maxwell model is used with viscosity depending on temperature and crystallinity degree. The mathematical model is complemented by the equation of kinetics of nonisothermal crystallization. The problem has been solved numerically by the method of fi nite differences

TEMPERATURE FIELD IN A WELL IN THE INTERVAL OF CONSTANT GRADIENTS WITH ACCOUNT FOR THE DEPENDENCE OF THERMAL CONDUCTIVITY ON TEMPERATURE
The problem of nonstationary heat transfer of an ascending liquid fl ow is considered with account for the nonlinearity caused by the dependence of the thermal conductivity of oil on temperature. The method of solution represents a combination of the small parameter method with “on the average accurate” asymptotic method. By expanding in the small parameter and asymptotic parameters, the problem is reduced to a chain of linear problems. To determine the fi rst coeffi cient of expansion in the small parameter, a special splitting procedure has been developed. With the aid of the developed apparatus of the small and formal parameters, analytical dependences of temperature in a well and surrounding rocks on time and spatial coordinates have been found that take into account the anisotropy of the thermophysical properties of media. It is shown that the zero approximation of the temperature function in the small parameter, as which the temperature coeffi cient γ is taken to be, coincides with the solutions of the corresponding linear problem with a constant value of the radial component of thermal conductivity λr, with the fi rst approximation taking into account the contribution of nonlinearity to the solution obtained.

A comparison has been presented of the results of calculating the temperature of the wall and steam with the empirical data of experiments modeling repeated impoundment of the core of water-cooled reactors. The need has been shown to improve the model implemented in the KORSAR computer complex for the case of low mass velocities and pressures.

NUMERICAL SIMULATION OF THE TEMPERATURE FIELDS IN A SINGLE-PHASE FLOW IN AN ASYMMETRICALLY HEATED MINICHANNEL
The heat transfer in the single-phase fl ow of a liquid in an asymmetrically heated horizontal minichannel was investigated. Thermograms of the surface of a heater in the minichannel and the surface of its adiabatic part have been obtained with the use of an infrared camera, and they were used to construct temperature profi les for these surfaces. Stationary temperature distributions in the insulating foil, the heater surface, and the liquid fl ow in the minichannel have been obtained, respectively, with the use of the Laplace equation, the Poisson equation, and the energy equation involving the frictional heat losses. The solution of the system of these differential equations with special boundary conditions has culminated in the solution of three sequential inverse problems on the heat conduction in the indicated adjacent regions having different physical parameters. These problems were solved using the Trefftz method, and the temperature of the liquid fl ow in the minichannel was calculated by the Picard–Trefftz method. The temperature distributions obtained for the liquid fl ow and the heater surface were used to determine the heat transfer through the liquid–heater interface. The Trefftz and Picard–Trefftz methods yielded similar local heat transfer coeffi cients and temperature distributions

USE OF COMBINED COGENERATION–THERMAL PUMPING PLANTS FOR MUNICIPAL HEAT POWER ENGINEERING AND HEAT TECHNOLOGIES
A procedure is suggested for determining the relative integral fuel economy of heat power engineering plants based on the equations of balances of their thermal and electric powers. A comparative analysis of the fuel economy of combined cogeneration–thermal pumping technology of heat generation with traditional technologies is carried out. The results of the comparative analysis of the fuel economy of a combined cogeneration–thermal pumping plant, boiler plant, and of autonomous thermal pumping plant, consuming line-operated electric energy from a thermal power station are presented. Since the energy base of the cogeneration–thermal pumping plant is the cogeneration plant, a comparison of such a plant with plants for separate production of electric and thermal energies at the thermal power station and in the boiler room is made

EXPERIMENTAL INVESTIGATION OF THE PROCESS OF COOLING WASTE TIRE PYROLYSIS PRODUCTS
Waste tire disposal, being currently a topical problem, can be implemented by low-temperature pyrolysis in continuous units used to obtain commercial products: liquid fraction and solid coke residue. In creating such units, cooling the discharged coke residue may become a factor limiting the entire technological process. The process of cooling a bed of solid pyrolysis products in the open air has been investigated in this work. The development of heat generation has been established experimentally in bulk coke residue at a surface layer temperature of 608o C or higher. A procedure has been developed which makes it possible to detect this effect for the process of pyrolysis of other carbon-containing materials.

KINETICS OF NONEQUILIBRIUM MELTING OF A MACROSYSTEM UNDER THE ACTION OF A VOLUME HEAT SOURCE
A kinetic model of nonequilibrium melting of a macrosystem under the action of a volume heat source formed in its bulk has been constructed. In this model, the melting of such a system is defi ned with account of the thermodynamic fl uctuations of its order parameter, playing a great role in the superheating of the system and in the attainment by it of the absolute instability point at which the initially metastable solid phase of the system becomes absolutely unstable relative to the infi nitely small fl uctuations of its liquid phase. Analytical solutions of the kinetic equations defi ning the melting of a macrosystem have been obtained for different rates of its heating by an internal volume heat source.

INFLUENCE OF THE CONCENTRATION OF THE FILLER AND OF THE TYPE OF MATRIX ON THE PROPERTIES OF THERMOPLASTICS FILLED WITH SHUNGITE NANOPARTICLE
The infl uence of a shungite fi ller on thermophysical and electrophysical properties of thermoplastics has been investigated. It has been shown that fi lling the thermoplastics with a shungite fi ller is particularly effi cient at a high concentration of the fi ller. It is the thermal conductivity and the thermal diffusivity, and also the electrical conductivity that are most substantially increased by shungite with 60 wt.% of fi lling. Here, the infl uence of shungite is more pronounced in the case of fi lling with polyamide rather than with polyethylene, which is due to the noticeable nucleating effect of shungite. It has been shown that at an equally high degree of fi lling, a PA6-based composite exhibits the properties of a conductor, whereas an LDPE-based one remains a dielectric. It has been established that shungite nanoparticles actively interact with the thermoplastic matrix, structuring the polymer and leading to an improvement of the thermophysical and electrophysical properties of a polymeric composite

HYDROPHILIC-OLEOPHOBIC MEMBRANES BASED ON HYDROLYSIS PRODUCTS OF METHOXYTRIMETHYLSILANE WITH ADDITIONS OF SILICA PARTICLES
The authors have shown the possibility of obtaining hydrophilic-oleophobic membranes through the application of an oleophobizing compound to a membrane base presented by meshes from stainless steels 100, 200, and 400. The oleophobizing compound is methoxytrimethylsilane from whose hydrolysis oleophobic methyl groups and hydrophilic silanol ones develop which form the type of wettability of a membrane. It has been shown that adding nanostructured silica particles creates surface roughness with an enormous number of pores and channels, which considerably enhances the oleophobicity of synthesized membranes. The resulting membranes exhibit high oleophobicity to organic liquids, letting water pass through their structure. This is promising for their use in the sphere of low-cost gravity separation of water and organic liquids.

PROBLEM ON CONJUGATE NONSTATIONARY HEAT EXCHANGE IN SUPERSONIC FLOW OVER A BLUNT-NOSED CONE AT AN ANGLE OF ATTACK
The fl ow of a gas over a conic body, having a nose blunted over a sphere, with a supersonic velocity at different angles of attack was considered. The possibility of control of the temperature regime of such a body in the case of three-dimensional gas fl ow over it was investigated. The dependence of the temperature of the surface of the indicated body on the material of which it is made, the angle of attack of the body, and other constitutive parameters of the problem on conjugate nonstationary heat exchange between the body and the gas fl ow over it was determined for standard conditions of an aerodynamic experiment. Results of numerical solution of this problem for different angles of attack of the body were processed in the criteria form. The dependences obtained allow one to estimate the degree of decrease in the maximum temperature at the surface of a blunt-nosed conic body depending on the thermophysical parameters of the material of which this surface is made, including in the case of nonstationary gas fl ow over it. It is shown that a uniform heating of the peripheral part of such a body and a marked decrease in the temperature of its windward part at large angles of attack can be provided with the use of highly heat-conducting materials for these parts of the body

PRESSURE RELAXATION AFTER PRESSURIZATION IN A TUBULAR DUCT HAVING A DAMAGED SECTION
The problem on pressure relaxation after pressurization in a tubular duct (pipeline) having a damaged section has been considered. The pipeline is fi lled with a fl uid and is placed in the ground. An integral equation describing pressure reduction in the pipeline has been obtained. Exact analytical and approximate solutions of the integral equation have been found. The period of pressure half-recovery after pressurization has been considered as a characteristic parameter determining the pressure drop rate in the pipeline. The period of pressure half-recovery has been analyzed as a function of the geometric parameters of the pipeline, the length of the damaged section, the properties of the fl uid, and also the fi ltration characteristics of the ground.

INFLUENCE OF THE REGION OUTSIDE A VENT ON THE EXPLOSION OF AN INDOOR GAS
The overpressure and fl ame generated in the explosion of a gas in different regions of a room outside a vent in it were investigated using computational fl uid dynamics. The calculation data obtained were compared with the corresponding results of earlier large-scale experiments on this subjec t, and they show that the smaller the distance from the vent, the larger the oscillations of the indoor overpressure and that the outside region of the vent substantially infl uences the indoor explosion fl ow fi eld. It was established that, as the outside-region length increases, the peak indoor overpressure approaches the experimental one, but the amplitude of the overpressure oscillations caused by the Helmholtz and Taylor effects increases substantially in this case. The numerical simulation of the explosion hazard of a ventilated gas in a room seems reasonable in the case where the outside region of a vent is not shorter than the room.
