**MATHEMATICAL MODELING OF FILTRATION FLOWS FROM FOUNDATION PITS FENCED WITH ZHUKOVSKII SHEET PILES**

UDC 532.546

Consideration is given to the fi ltration of water from foundation pits fenced with Zhukovskii sheet piles through a ground layer underlain by a well-permeable confi ned aquifer on whose roof there is a water-impermeable portion. A mixed multiparametric boundary-value problem of the theory of analytical functions is formulated, which is solved with the Polubarinova-Kochina method. Based on this model, an algorithm of calculation of the fi lrtation characteristics is developed for situations where, in water motion from the foundation pits, one has to take into account the joint infl uence of such important factors, as seepage onto the free surface, upthrust from the water of the underlying highly permeable aquifer, and the presence of the impermeable inclusion on the roof of the latter, on the pattern of the phenomenon. Limiting cases of the model are considered which are related to the absence of one factor characterizing the modeled process (upthrust, an impermeable inclusion, seepage) and to the degeneration of the foundation pits into a submergence band semiinfi nite on the left. A solution of the problem is given for the scheme under the assumption of a fi nite value of the fl ow velocity at the end of a sheet pile; it is a certain analog of the Zhukovskii classical problem.

UDC 621.928.37

The infl uence of the presence of an air column in a hydrocyclone and the regime of fl ow of particles through its discharge orifi ces on the separation characteristics of the hydrocyclone was investigated. It was established that the fl ow of heavy particles through the lower discharge orifi ce of the hydrocyclone in the case where its upper discharge orifi ce is isolated from the atmosphere is larger than that in the case of free fl ow of particles to the atmosphere though both two orifi ces of the hydrocyclone. In the case where the lower discharge orifi ce of the hydrocyclone is isolated from the atmosphere, the involvement of light particles from the lower receiving bin into the reverse fl uid fl ow in the axial zone of the hydrocyclone increases the resulting yield of particles through the upper discharge orifi ce of the hydrocyclone.

**MODEL OF MOTION AND SEDIMENTATION OF A CHARGED GAS SUSPENSION IN AN ELECTRIC FIELD**

A. L. Tukmakov

UDC 519.63:533:537

We have constructed a model of the dynamics of a charged gas suspension moving in an electric fi eld under the action of interphase friction and Coulomb forces and used it to describe the process of powder coloration. The model incorporates the equations of motion of the carrier and dispersed phases obtained with account for the interphase momentum and energy exchange. The carrier medium is described by a system of Reynolds-averaged Navier–Stokes equations for a compressible heat-conducting gas with a Spalart–Allmaras model. The dispersed phase is given by the mass equation with account for the turbulent diffusion and by the conservation equations of momentum components with account for the action of the Coulomb force and aerodynamic friction, as well as by the internal energy equation. The system is written in generalized coordinates in dimensionless form and is solved by the explicit McCormack method with splitting into spatial directions and by the nonlinear correction scheme. The model is used to investigate the velocity and density fi elds of the gas suspension in the interelectrode space near the surface on which the powder is deposited.

UDC 536.63:631.576

We present the results of measurements of the heat capacity of parenchymal tissues of apples by the differential scanning calorimetry method. An analytical dependence of the specifi c heat capacity of these tissues on their temperature (10–90oC) and moisture (6.8–90%) is proposed. We have considered the boundary conditions under which it is possible to calculate the heat capacity of moist parenchymal tissues of apples containing simultaneously free and bound water by an additive model. Reliable values of the heat capacity of tissues containing only bound water can be obtained only experimentally. In parenchymal tissues of apples with a low moisture content (0.6– 0.43%) in the positive temperature range, a stepwise change in the heat capacity has been revealed.

F. Feuillebois, S. Tabakova, S. Radev, and V. Darua

Hitting cold surfaces, such as aircraft ones, supercooled water droplets may freeze immediately. However, glaze ice may also be formed under some conditions: a part of the droplets may freeze, while the rest remains liquid, fl owing on the substrate as a fi lm. This paper proposes a model of a fi lm created by the impact of supercooled droplets on a cylindrical obstacle. The fi lm is a mixture of water and frazil ice, viz. a slurry. The fi lm thickness and volume fraction of ice in the water are expressed by simple analytical formulas obtained from the mass and enthalpy balance laws in the presence of different phenomena responsible for fi lm cooling. The results are compared with the data of existing experiments.

UDC 536.25

A steady-state three-dimensional numerical model is developed to predict natural convection heat transfer from a radial fl ow heat sink. The considered medium is air. The effect of several design parameters, such as the fi n length and height, number of fi ns, and the heat sink base radius, on heat transfer is investigated. The Taguchi method, known to be a very useful tool for selecting the best levels of control factors, is employed. Five factors and four levels for each factor are chosen. Sixteen kinds of models are analyzed, and the total heat transfer for each model is obtained. The results are used to estimate the optimum design values of the parameters affecting the heat sink

performance. The reliability of these values is verifi ed. The average heat transfer rate of the optimum model is shown to increase by 60% as compared to the reference model. Finally, the heat transfer data at different outer radii of the radial fl ow heat sink are correlated.

A brief analysis of different approaches to the calculation and measurement of the condensation coeffi cient of a vapor is presented. It is shown that, on frequent occasions, calculations give values of this coeffi cient that are at variance with the corresponding experimental data and that the condensation coeffi cient is determined most exactly on the basis of the molecular-kinetic theory. It was established that the spread in the literature data on the measured values of this coeffi cient is explained mainly by the fact that these values were obtained not in the immediate vicinity from the boundary between the gas and liquid phases but at a large distance (as compared to the mean free path of molecules) from it. Results of calculations of the condensation coeffi cient of argon by the method of moleculardynamic simulation are presented.

It has been shown that laser pulsed processing makes it possible to infl uence actively the process of its wear. The presence of the oxide fi lm increases the wear stability of the tool in a wide range of cutting speeds, widens the range of cutting regimes in which its least wear is achieved, and minimizes the wear rate. Cutting regimes, in which the highest effi ciency of the irradiated tool is achieved, have been established.
