The research on matrix of press-form stiffness and steadiness

The formalized algorithm of calculation of rectangular matrix of press-form is developed on durability and inflexibility with the purpose of determination of optimum geometrical sizes which would provide it optimum operating capacity. For this purpose CAD and CAE systems were used, in particular Solidwork,  Matcad. А three-dimensional model of the mold matrix was designed. Research and analysis of the stress-strain state of the matrix was carried out and its optimal parameters were determined.

A coupled compressible two-phase flow with the biological dynamics modeling the anaerobic biodegradation process of waste in a landfill

In this article, we present and study a new coupled model combining the biological and the mechanical aspects describing respectively the process of the biogas production and the compressible two-phase leachate-biogas flow during the anaerobic biodegradation of organic matters in a landfill, which is considered a reactive porous medium.  The model obtained is governed by a reaction-diffusion system for the bacterial activity coupled with a compressible two-phase flow system of a non-homogeneous porous medium.  We carry out the analysis and the numerical approximation of the model within a v

Study of the processing of small diagnostic creations on a fluid sourcing by spiral survivals

The article considers the features of the drilling process where there is a change in temperature, hole diameter, and displacement relative to the axis and the impact on the tool, when machining holes with high-speed steel drills there is wear of the transverse edge which is completely rounded to create a conical surface. There is a decrease in the negative value of the front corners on the transverse edge of the decrease in axial force, which led to a decrease in the intensity of wear of the transverse edge.

Solving topology optimization problems using cellular automata and mortar finite element method

Currently topology optimization is widely used by engineers for different practical problems.  Researches by different authors offer algorithms of using cellular automata in these problems, and most recent publications introduce a mesh-refinement procedure to decrease numerical efforts.  In this article, we propose to apply a mortar finite element method for solving topology optimization problems using cellular automata.  This methodology enables us to handle the non-conforming meshes, which can arise in the refinement process.  We present a formulation of the algorithm and analyse its comp

Numerical analysis of heterogeneous mathematical model of elastic body with thin inclusion by combined BEM and FEM

This article dwells upon the multiscale elastic structures consisting of matrix medium and thin coatings or inclusions.  The matrix medium is described by the equations of classical elasticity theory, while Timoshenko shell theory is used for the description of the thin parts of the structure.   On the interface between media, perfect contact conditions are assumed to hold.  The coupled algorithm is developed, based on the boundary element method in the matrix part and on the high order finite element method in the thin parts of the structure.  The two methods are coupled using a domain dec

The parallel algorithm for solving problems of elasticity

Domain decomposition algorithm for solving problems of elasticity based on parallel computing is considered. The global system of equations for the entire domain is not formed and is represented by local matrices and vectors for subdomains using Boolean matrices of connectivity. The system of linear equations is solved by modified conjugate gradient method. The algorithm is implemented with C ++ using parallel MPI library. The results of testing proposed approach for modeling example are included.
