In the hydrodynamic formulation, two-dimensional steady filtration in homogeneous isotropic ground from canals

through a soil layer to the underlying highly permeable pressure water-bearing stratum is considered in

the presence of the ground capillarity and evaporation from the free surface. To study filtration, a combined

multiparametric boundary-value problem of the theory of analytical functions is formulated, which is solved

using the P. Ya. Polubarinova-Kochina method and procedures of conformal mapping of regions of a special

kind that are characteristic of the problems of subsurface hydromechanics. On the basis of this model an algorithm

of calculating the capillary water spreading and the filtration discharge is developed for the situations

where in water filtration from canals provision is made for the ground capillarity, evaporation from

the free-surface of groundwater, and the additional pressure from the side of water of the underlying wellpermeable

bed. With the aid of the obtained accurate analytical relations and numerical calculations a hydrodynamic

analysis is made of the structure and character of specific features of the modeled process as well

as of the effect of all physical parameters of the scheme on the filtration characteristics.

L. Kh. Ingel’ and M. V. Belyaeva UDC 532.517.013.4+551.558

Stationary convection in a rotating medium uniformly heated from above and nonuniformly cooled from below

has been studied analytically in the linear approximation. As distinct from a number of previous works, the

case of the presence of both a stable background stratification and of intense rotation around a vertical axis

has been analyzed. One of the interesting properties of the solution found is that despite the stable stratification

the perturbations of temperature, pressure, and of the vertical velocity over the thermal inhomogeneities

of the horizontal surface, in the case of strong rotation, penetrate deep into the medium (up to heights of the

order of the horizontal scales of the inhomogeneities mentioned.) The ascending motions over the "warm spot"

transfer relatively cold volumes of the medium upwards, so that beginning from a certain level a vast "cold"

region can be formed and the related positive deviation of pressure (of the weight of the medium column).

This leads to the formation of the anticyclonic vortex perturbation.

The turbulent axisymmetric flow around a stepped body — a cylinder with coaxial front and rear disks — has

been calculated with the aid of a VP2/3 package based on multiblock computational technologies and the

generalized procedure of pressure correction. The computational model has been tested with the example of a

supersonic flow around a sphere. The numerical forecasts made with the use of Spalart–Allmares shear stress

transfer and eddy viscosity transfer models have been compared with the data of the aeroballistic experiment,

wind tunnel tests, and the results of the calculation of the flow around the disk–cylinder arrangement by a

simplified zonal model in a wide range of variation of the incident flow Mach number (from 1.5 to 4). We

have obtained a good agreement between the calculated transverse flow density distributions in the front stalling

zone and those determined from the interferograms for the wave-drag-rational disk–cylinder arrangement.

The influence of the rear disk on the drag of the disk–cylinder–disk arrangement has been estimated.

This paper presents an experimental technique to estimate the appropriate thermal product values of rugged

and fast response temperature probes (TPs) for hypersonic aerodynamic experiments. Two types of scratches

were used, mainly abrasive papers with different grit sizes and scalpel blades with different thicknesses, to

form the probe junction. The effect of the scratch technique on the probe’s thermal product is investigated.

The probes are tested and calibrated in the test section and in the end wall of shock tube facility. It is observed

that the thermal product of a particular TP depends on the Mach number, junction scratch technique,

and junction location, as well as on the enthalpy conditions. It is noted that, depending on the scratch technique,

some of the TPs do not require individual calibration; however, calibration for others is likely to be

needed.

The possibilities of obtaining linear and nonlinear profiles of the impurity distribution by liquid epitaxy are

studied. Analytical expressions are obtained for the profile of the impurity distribution in epitaxial layers

grown from solutions-melts with a constant volume and with a varying volume, where a variation in the volume

of the basic solution-melt and in the amount of the doping impurity in it is achieved by mixing, to it, an

additional saturated solution through the capillary opening. It is shown that in this case the profile of the impurity

distribution is determined by the velocity of feed of the additional solution-melt. Comparisons of experimental

data with calculated results are presented.

The paper is devoted to the numerical solution of the problem of flow of a micropolar fluid over a curved

stretching surface. A similarity transformation is applied to reduce a system of partial differential equations

to a system of ordinary differential equations. The numerical solution of these coupled equations is carried

out by the shooting method using the Runge–Kutta algorithm. The physical quantities of interest, like the fluid

velocity, microrotation velocity, and pressure, are obtained and discussed as functions of the nondimensional

curvature radius. It is evident from the results that the pressure inside the boundary layer cannot be neglected

for a curved stretching sheet, as distinct from a flat stretching sheet.
