Chapter 1. Rotary Forging of Hollow Components with Flanges

This paper is about development and testing of cold rotary forging technology for manufacturing of hollow shaft flanges. Rotary forging mills with rotated die and conical roll were used for forming. Pre-machined blanks were made from pieces of welded or extruded pipes from carbon steel with 0.2 % of carbon. Design of tool-sets, sketches of blank and forged parts are presented.

Chapter 3. Auto-Ignition Problem Titanium of Oxygen and Possible Ways of Solving

We note the negative feature of titanium alloys’ spontaneous combustion in an oxygen environment, which prevents their widespread use in autoclave equipment operating with oxygen. We discuss the basic tenets of the theory of metals in fire destruction with an explanation of the anomalous ability of titanium to spontaneous combustion in oxygen. We concluded that the exclusion of self-ignition of titanium alloys in oxygen environment autoclaves can be achieved by developing technical measures to prevent the heating of the potential sites of friction titanium structures to auto-ignition temperature T * alloys at these partial pressures of gaseous reactants.

Chapter 4. Control of Biped Walking Robot Using Equations of the Inverted Pendulum

This paper presents a control method for a 3-D biped robot walking in different modes: walking in the up or down direction, walking up stairs or down stairs, and rotation. The control strategy is developed on a simplified model of the robot and then verified on a more realistic model (Pott A, Kecskeméthy A, Hiller M (2007) Mech Mach Theory 11:1445–1461). This paper includes the results of the numerical solutions, showing stepping on and off a 0.1 m high platform, walking in the down direction (surface slope angle is 0.02 rad), and rotation on the second step by a 0.3 rad angle.

Chapter 8. New Modelling and Calculation Methods for Vibrating Screens and Separators

This work reveals the authors’ experience in developing a fast-acting computational modelling algorithm and calculation of devices for vibrational size classification of ores, solid waste and other bulk materials. It is shown that adaptation of several analytical models to computing allows creating a new, less resource-intensive approach, as compared to widespread multi-functional computational methods (including DEM). This algorithm, based on problem-oriented models, requires neither preliminary calibration nor adjustment, which additionally reduces its deployment time and application costs. Moreover, the algorithm enables parcel-wise improvements, as illustrated by introduction of an advanced openings-passing model and a layer-based vibrational separation sub-model.

Chapter 9. Remote Monitoring Systems for Quality Management Metal Pouring

In this chapter we reveal the most influential quality on processes of production of details of car production at the technological stage to be molding of cast iron in forms, A scheme of remote monitoring of provision of a filling ladle is developed for ensuring quality of filling of metal during production of metal products. The device of remote control of positioning of a ladle with the melted metal is developed. The method of decomposition of linear optical spectral characteristics of objects offers a harmonious row. The characteristics of reflection of objects of the spectrophotometer created by the Swiss firm X-Rite are investigated. Comparison of experimental data and results of submission of characteristics by Fourier’s ranks and linearity allows a harmonious row to be executed. An increase of accuracy of decomposition in comparison with Fourier’s number is proved. For metrological levels of errors the required number of members of a number of decompositions is defined.

Chapter 10. Acoustic Emission Monitoring of Leaks

Our research is devoted to the study of the possibility of determining the parameters of leaks in the pipelines of ITER by the acoustic emission method. Research results are presented for leaks in pipelines, length from 900 mm to 150 m. Flow was carried out with steam and water through fatigue cracks in size from 5 to 39 mm in the pipelines. We investigated regularities of changes of the amplitude, temporal and spectral parameters of acoustic emission signals. The loss through flow and the distance from the source of leaks to the AE sensors were changed. Methodology was developed, which allows us to determine the coordinates and parameters of leakage through information on the AE signals.

Chapter 11. Dynamic Model of the Two-Mass Active Vibroprotective System

While noise and vibration reduction requirements for modern power installations have become tougher and tougher, possibilities of passive vibration insulation are almost settled. Thus active vibroprotective systems (AVPS) have become crucial. In this paper we investigate the dynamics of two-stage AVPS and define the areas of efficiency and stability.

Chapter 14. Vibrations Excitation in Cyclic Mechanisms Due to Energy Generated in Nonstationary Constraints

The exchange of vibrational energy between an external source and subsystems of the cyclic mechanism schematized as a dynamic model with slowly varying parameters is studied. The conditions are obtained whose violation yields the formation of regions where the energy of vibrations appears in the time interval of the kinematic cycle, even in the absence of external perturbations. It was shown that this effect occurs due to the operation of the external source upon implementation of nonstationarity of dynamic constraints and the dynamic instability of the system on a finite time interval. The dynamic effects and key conclusions are illustrated by results of computer simulation. Engineering recommendations for decreasing the vibrational activity of cyclic mechanisms are presented.
