Basis for Local Methods of Insulation Hardening of Traction Rolling Stock Electrical Machines

The article concerns issues connected with improvement of traction rolling stock electrical machines (TRS EMs) reliability using local methods of insulation hardening by means of infrared (thermal) radiation during repair and manufacturing processes. Reasons for low reliability of advanced electric locomotives EMs with commutator traction electrical motors (TEMs) have been analyzed. The low reliability of electrical machines is associated with a low resource of winding insulation. The existing methods of restoration of insulation are not able to adequately provide high-quality hardening of insulation in the process of depot and factory repair. On the basis of Irkutsk state University of Railways has set up a scientific laboratory for the study of effective ways of hardening the insulation in the repair process based on the use of energy thermal (infrared) radiation. Laboratory and production researches confirming efficiency of the proposed methods have been carried out. Methods and industrial plants on hardening the insolation of TRS EMs of various types have been developed on the basis of experimental data. In conjunction with the company “Elinar” (the largest supplier of electrical insulating materials across the network of JSC “RZD”) has conducted studies on the effectiveness of the proposed methods in comparison with the currently used, based on the use of convection.

Research of Deicing Processes by Means of Electrodynamic Method

The article deals with the problem of deicing of power line wires. Routine methods of power line wire deicing are notable for low energy efficiency and long time needed for wire’s cleaning. Research objective consists in model-based studying of power line wire’s deicing process by means of electrodynamic method. In the article, a short review with the reference of disadvantages of existing power line wire’s deicing methods are described. An electrodynamic method, based on combined effect on ice layer, is outlined. A short description of mathematical model used at the investigation process is shown. The model allows to calculate the parameters of three parallel sub processes of deicing: melting of a thin ice layer on the “wire-ice” boundary, destruction of ice coating on separate fragments and shaking off the fractured ice coating elements by inertial forces. Three cases were considered during investigation. The relationship between the required pulse ratio during change of thickness of the melted ice layer, and pulse size at different ambient temperatures is defined. The relationship between length of cracked ice cylinder fragment and ice coating thickness and size of pulses supplied to the line is defined. The energy consumption for clean-up of the line by electrodynamic method is defined. This energy consumption is compared with energy consumption of ice melting.

Assessment of the Fatigue Durability of the Rolling Contact

The phenomenon of reducing the contact strength of conjugate parts under conditions of pseudo-pure rolling and (or) the effect of oscillating forces of small amplitudes is considered. This work is to analyze the effect on the level of strength of differential slip in the contact area. Surface contact disruptions are initially localized in the region of minimum slip velocities of the conjugate surfaces; the allowable stresses for the pulsating contact mode are much lower than for the apparently less favorable “rolling with slip” regime. The conditions initiating the fracture were investigated on the basis of the experimental material and the determination of tangential loads in the rolling contact in the presence of cohesion and slip on the basis of minimization of the Kalker functional over Spector-Fedorenko. The localization of the fracture zones corresponds to the boundaries of the separation of these regions, where the concentration of shearing frictional stresses takes place.

Online Energy-Efficient Train Traffic Adjustments

High quality dispatching ensures a good level of train punctuality and reduces operating costs. The main savings come from reduction of the traction energy consumption. The paper considers the issues of creating an adequate energy model, which is needed for efficient adjustment of train traffic. The authors develop a methodology for the meso-modeling and optimal traffic control. We describe two types of operational management such as regulation of a single train speed profile and the services flow control. Optimization criterion is the minimum energy rate. Detailed study of the traction energy consumption dynamics is carried out using correlation analysis. The main revealed regularities are: the correlation between the energy consumption and the relief increases with heaviness of path and falls when an unplanned delays occur. The conclusions obtained make it possible to improve the traction energy consumption model.

The Development of Underground Construction as a Way to Improve the Organization of Traffic

Currently, there’s a problem with the big population on the earth’s surface. This has an extremely negative impact on the transport network of cities and the overall comfort of living. There is a problem to reach in the morning for work, and in the evening home, roads are overloaded with transport in rush hours. In some cities, traffic jams are a constant problem. The construction of intercepting parking facilities near the metro, multi-level roads and other elements of transport infrastructure only lead to temporary improvement. The best solution for this problem is urbanization of the underground space. The purpose of the research was to examine the efficiency of reconstruction of underground structures for new facilities. The study showed that reconstruction of existing underground structures for new appliance is more quick and cheap. In our days there’re some objects, which have been restored and now they are amusement parks, shopping centers, etc. Were described the plans for future renovations, which will reduce the density of urban development on the surface of the earth and to repurpose unused underground structures. It was also noted that due to lack of existing underground structures new constructions are often used. There were given some recommendations of the organization and development of the underground space.

Thermal Properties of the Building with Low Energy Consumption (LEB)

Energy saving is one of the important directions in the development of modern technology and energy. The article presents thermal calculation of a building with low energy consumption based on the architectural concept, which was developed earlier. At the same time calculation, can be executed for any terrain and any climatic zone in case of its known climatological data. There are three basic approaches to increase the energy efficiency of modern buildings: level increase of the walling insulation; increasing the efficiency of heating control, ventilation, lighting, air conditioning; the use of renewable energy sources. The maximum effect of power outage savings can be purchased only with the full analysis of space-planning, engineering and design solutions.

Energy Efficiency of Structural Regulation of Stress-Related Characteristics of Concrete

The article suggests carrying out a wide range research of efficient additives capable of regulating the physical, mechanical and rheological properties of concrete. It also provides experimental studies that prove the ability to solve this problem. Air-entraining agents can be an effective additive to reduce the modulus of elasticity and to increase the limit of the relative compression deformation. The article presents the results of short-term tests for concrete with/without NAR (neutralized air-entraining resin) additive, performed by the method of obtaining the full concrete deformation diagrams. It has shown that the introduction of an NAR additive greatly reduces modulus of elasticity and increases the limit compressive deformability of concrete. In conditions of prolonged load, the creep of pure sand concrete is compared to that of concrete with clay and lime additives. There is quite a significant increase in the creep deformation in concrete with a clay-limestone additive.

Thermal Resistance and Accumulation of Heat by the Wall Construction

Nowadays the energy efficiency is one of the main topics in the construction industry and transport infrastructure. Therefore, structural and technological activities are aimed mainly at increasing the wall’s thermal resistance. The object of the study is a multilayer enclosing structure (wall). The goal of the article is the selection of the optimal enclosing structures to increase the thermal stability and energy efficiency of the building. The article shows that the heat accumulation in the wall and its thermal resistance are opposite factors. Results of the study show that the thermal resistance of the wall does not depend on the layers alternation. Stationary and periodic temperature, humidity regimes of the walls depend substantially on the layers alternation. Sufficient thickness of the walls helps to reduce energy consumption for heating of building and structures. Consequently, the savings on energy consumption. The studies were conducted by the methods of thermal engineering.

Choice of Thermal Protection of an Office Building of the Transport Infrastructure by Economic Reasons

Administration and office buildings make an important part of the facilities and utilities of airports, river and marine ports, road terminals. Lowering the expenses for their construction and operation is related to a right choice of the building heat protection despite of other factors. Cumulated Discount Expenses (CDE) have been chosen to provide economic estimation of the building heating. The CDE values have been taken for a 10-year limit. The CDE dependence on some factors has been investigated, and their range has been considerably enlarged by comparison with the traditional one. I has been shown, that it is not enough to take into account the capital investments only for the building thermal protection and the heating system operation. The results of the investigation permitted to determine combinations of the heated building geometrical parameters and the cost characteristics of several components of capital and operation expenses, which are reasonable for different types of thermal protection of an office building.

The Study of Flat Convective Stream Formed by Use of Recessed Flood Convection Heaters with Natural Air Circulation in High Height Rooms with Continuous Glassing

Convection heaters built into a floor prevent descending cold airflow from vertical translucent structures from entering serviced room zone. The study assumes a convection heater with natural air circulation installed near a glassing. Convection heater’s length is equal to glassing’s length. The height of a room is assumed to be typical for public buildings and is equal to 6 m. Convection heater’s heat flow is equal to heat loss through glassing. The computational model is developed and recessed floor convection heater’s operation simulation in “ANSYS Fluent 14.5” software package with different distances from a glassing to a convection heater is produced. Studies are carried out for “long” heat source given that convection heater’s finned section length is equal to glassing’s length. Temperature and velocity fields in the room are calculated. Room’s natural convective streams (descending cold airflow near the glassing and ascending warm airflow from the convection heater) are described. The conditions for use of recessed floor convection heaters with natural air circulation are determined. It is recommended that the convection heater should be installed no further than 300 mm from the glassing (distance of 200 mm is optimal). Under such conditions warm airflow adheres to the glassing and uniform temperature field in room’s volume is established.

Problems of Energy Efficiency When Design of Construction Objects for Transport Infrastructure

The main task of this work is focused on providing of energy efficiency by correction of requirements to heat- and sound-insulation of autoclave cellular concrete and development of special purpose materials. The high-effective technological solution is proposed. It is based on application of high-reactive aluminosilicate components in cellular concrete to improve porous structure. Using a scanning electron microscopy (SEM), gas adsorption method (BET) the analysis of cellular material microstructure at macro- and micro-level is accomplished; criteria of optimal porosity formation taking into account amount, size and shape of pores as well as density of interpore partition are determined. According to refined parameters and experimental data the relationship between the concrete structure and its resistance to sorption capacity and vapor permeability when surround humidity variation in range of 80–97% are determined. Also reducing of heat-conductivity coefficient for the concrete is observed. It allows construction of stored buildings such as garages as well as light maintenance of vehicle without additional winterization. Generally, on the base of the data obtained in this work the developed autoclave cellular concrete is energy-effective and rational material when design, modernization and service of construction objects of transport infrastructure.

Chlorella Microalga Biomass Cultivation for Obtaining Energy in Climatic Conditions of St. Petersburg

There is a special approach of modern science, connected with production and use of biofuel, recieved from the biomass that is widely developing nowadays. In current paper conditions of cultivation of microalgae Chlorella sorokiniana for further use as a source of receiving biofuel and biogas are studied. In comparison with other microalgae, types of Chlorella have higher efficiency of photosynthesis. Climatic conditions of St. Petersburg are less suitable for cultivation of Chlorella, than conditions of warm regions. But it is possible to receive a sufficient gain of biomass with the help of creation of additional factors of cultivation. According to St. Petersburg conditions, June, July and August are optimum for cultivation of microalgae. In this study cultivation of Chlorella sorokiniana under natural conditions of St. Petersburg was carried out, at natural lighting, without aeration when hashing once a day. Control experiment was made on populations which were grown up in vitro at a stable temperature in the same conditions of aeration and also on populations grown up with aeration and periodic hashing. The main condition of cultivation influencing growth of number of cells are aeration and hashing; in these conditions number of cells of algae in 16 days increases by 3.5 times. The same process made under natural conditions in St. Petersburg increases number of cells only by two times. The negative impact of environmental factors is shown in increase of part of dead cells in population that is revealed by means of coloring of temporary medicines by methylene blue. Thus, Chlorella sorokiniana cultivation is possible in the conditions of St. Petersburg, however it is necessary to correct cultivation conditions with aeration and periodic cultivation. The scheme of receiving valuable components and biofuel from the cultivated biomass of microalgae C. sorokiniana has been offered in this work.

Effect of the Structural Characteristics on Frost Resistance of Concrete

Today, in buildings and constructions for transport infrastructure, such as tunnels, elements of the bridges, viaducts, roads, are used concretes with high performance properties. This paper presents the results of the study of frost resistance of concretes for road infrastructure. The results of the study show the influence not only of water-cement ratio and porosity of the concrete for such transport buildings, but also of structural and technological characteristics: true water-cement ratio and volume concentration of cement paste in concrete. Investigation shows that the lowest frost resistance has pure cement paste. Frost resistance increases sharply up to a certain value with the increase of amount of aggregate. The increase of the aggregate content in cement compositions leads to the decrease of expectancy of unimpeded crack distribution. This effect increases the frost resistance of the material.

Solving Problems of Distribution Network Tracing: Example of Gas Distribution Using the Search Optimization Methodology

The search optimization methodology was designed to address problems of optimized tracing for distribution networks. Apart from gas pipeline diameters, this methodology is able to vary the installation coordinates of gas-distribution stations and the network and trunk gas pipeline joining points. Such problems share the following features. Compared to similar problems with reinforced concrete structures, where increment of variable parameters must result in higher costs, and decrement in lower cost of the solution, such circumstances may be observed in the field of gas distribution only with the factors of the section’s diameter: the larger diameter, the higher the cost of the gas line construction, and the reverse. Meanwhile, changes in the coordinates of characteristic points of the gas distribution network may both increase and decrease total cost of construction.

Influence of the Longitudinal Compressive Force on Parametric Vibrations and Dynamic Stability of Thin-Walled Above-Ground Steel Oil Pipelines with Large Diameter

This article deals with the problem of parametric vibrations of the above-ground main oil pipelines of large diameter subjected to the action of non-stationary internal operating pressure and the parameter of the longitudinal compressive force. The main pipeline is considered as a thin-walled cylindrical shell, because only with the use of this design scheme one can account for the deformation of the cross section and the effect of internal operating pressure on parametric vibrations and dynamic stability. The pipeline is set on an elastic ground base, which corresponds to the Fuss-Winkler model. To solve the problem of parametric vibrations, differential equations of the middle surface of the shell are obtained on the basis of the geometrically nonlinear semi-momental theory of cylindrical shells of middle bending. After mathematical transformations, we obtain a separating system of homogeneous Mathieu differential equations. The resulting system of Mathieu’s equations allows to investigate the dynamic stability of an above-ground thin-walled large-diameter oil pipeline by constructing regions of dynamic instability, such as modified Ains-Strett diagrams, for different values of wave numbers m, n = 1, 2… Dimensions and positions of dynamic instability areas strongly depend on the geometric and mechanical parameters.

The Principles of the Layout and Evaluation of Systems for Protection from Dust Pollution of the Air

The technical condition of vehicles directly depends on the condition of highways. Maintaining the quality of the pavement will ensure the reduction of overhauls. The use of dust collection systems in the technological process for laying the asphalt concrete pavement and other layers of the pavement construction will provide protection against dust pollution of atmospheric air. A significant part of modern technological processes are associated with the manufacture, processing, transportation and use of powdered materials, and is accompanied by intensive release into the atmospheric air of significant amounts of dust. In the current environmental situation, even at relatively low initial concentrations, it increases the technogenic impact on the surrounding environment, and also entails the loss of valuable components and the increased costs of air treatment in ventilation and air conditioning systems. In the prevailing practice of design and operation, multistage plants for cleaning industrial emissions from suspended solids have become the most widespread. The article provides a systematization of the basic principles of the layout of such systems, as well as a calculation for a preliminary evaluation of their effectiveness using the example of a dust collection system proposed for the production of aerated concrete.

Fire Resistance of Prefabricated Monolithic Reinforced Concrete Slabs of “Marko” Technology

Prefabricated monolithic slabs represent a construction structure that effectively combines the positive properties of precast reinforced concrete structures and monolithic concrete with additional reinforcement. Systems of the prefabricated monolithic constructions correspond to the modern trends, but require special attention and scrutiny. There are results of prefabricated monolithic slab fire test in the article. The prototype of the reinforced concrete slab was installed on the fire chamber of the test installation with an applied static load in accordance with the design scheme. There are results of prefabricated monolithic slab fire test on the temperature effect in the article. Signs of construction limit states and collapse of the structure were not registered after 125-min fire testing, and also there are no through cracks and holes on the unheated side of the samples. Visual inspection of prototypes of prefabricated monolithic reinforced concrete slab was carried out after their removal from the test installation, according to the results of which it was established that there was no deformation (kink), a slight damage to the heated surface and no destruction of the metal and concrete of beams. To create a methodology for calculating the prefabricated monolithic slab on the flame impingement, it is necessary to carry out further tests for fire resistance taking into account the span of the structure, as well as the type of filling blocks.

Mechanization of Technological Processes Assembly of Threaded Joints

The paper proposes a methodology to calculate indicators of the process of tightening threaded joints using impact wrenches. Such indicators include the “moment – number impacts” diagram, and the limiting tightening torque. Calculations consider the elastic-friction properties of the joint itself and the energy of single impact by the wrench. Having no data on wrench energy, we provide a method to measure it indirectly in production conditions based on the proposed methodology. The computing algorithm has produced accuracy level sufficient for engineering calculations (at least 10%) in the course of tests. The resulting methodology reduces bolt driver calibration time and improves accuracy of assembly manipulations; it also identifies the area of rational use of available assembly tools. The above aspects are particularly relevant when critical joints are assembled.

The revealed hysteresis of the viscous flowable building load under alternating deformation mode is similar to the elastic hysteresis and can be represented in complex form with the coefficient of resistance determined by the area of the hysteresis loop. It is shown that for deriving the equations of motion flowable building load can be used the equations of fluid mechanics in terms of stresses based on the above modified formula of Newton.

Problems of Fire Extinguishing in Buildings of the Transport Transit Hubs Using Carbon Dioxide and Gaseous Chladones

Emergence of the fire inside the transport transit hub (TTH) leads not only to injury and death of passengers and transport workers, but also to destruction of transport facilities. Therefore, solving of such problems as localization and extinguishing fires in TTH buildings is actually. As a result of conducted analysis of the indoor flame suppression process we have received quantitative ratios for calculation of the time and the specific consumption depending on flow rate of extinguishing agent. It is shown that in case of application of gaseous compounds, as well as other extinguishing agents, dependence of the specific consumption on the flow rate passes through the minimum point that allows defining optimum flow rate during extinguishing of combustible materials of different nature.

Railway/Road Level Crossing Design – Aspect of Safety and Environment

At the railway/road level crossings, two essentially different modes of transport intersect, both with a variety of vehicle performance parameters and traffic organization rules. Level crossing presents a collision zone for both transport modes from the aspect of traffic safety. Unfortunately, the probability of accidents at level crossings is still high. Railway Infrastructure Manager controls only one part of the problem (traffic management and ensuring the safety of level crossings using technical equipment and signalization). Level crossings are not always avoidable on the existing railway lines, although the preferred solution is overpass crossing. On the European railway network, level crossings occur even on the reconstructed railway lines for speeds up to 200 km/h, with the appropriate design principles and safety measures for both transport modes. This paper describes the basic design principles for the level crossings where rail vehicles reach speeds up to 200 km/h, as well as the review of the necessary measures to increase safety level.

Finite Element Modeling of the Creep of Shells of Revolution Under Axisymmetric Loading

The article is devoted to the development of a method for calculating the shells of revolution under conditions of axisymmetric loading, taking into account the viscoelastic properties of the material. When solving the problem, finite element modeling is used. The derivation of the resolving equations for one-dimensional axially symmetric finite elements in the form of truncated cones with allowance for creep is presented. The solution is performed in a quasi-static setting: the calculation is performed step-by-step, the creep strains are assumed to be constant at each step, and a linear approximation of the deformation growth rate is used to determine their values at the next step. Calculations were made in the package Matlab.

Increase of Fire Resistance Limits of Building Structures of Oil-and-Gas Complex Under Hydrocarbon Fire

The article deals with the technical documentation in design of building constructions of oil-and-gas complex under special load – fire in case of hydrocarbon fire. It gives the detailed review of international, European and American standards for determine of the fire resistance limits in the modeling of hydrocarbon combustion. Much attention is given to analysis of technical regulations in fire protection designing of ships and sea platforms. It should be stressed that requirements for the fire resistance limits in conditions of hydrocarbon fire for some buildings and structures are absent. Therefore the building structures testing without appropriate calculations is superfluous and economically inadvisable. It is necessary to evaluate the time variation in the area of oil or oil products under various spreading conditions and to justify the need for the structure protection from the hydrocarbon fire. The development of industry standards for Russian oil and gas enterprises with a list of indicators for fireproofing and flame-retardant coating for building structures in the conditions of a hydrocarbon fire is proposed.

Experimental Determination of Permeability Coefficient

The article exposes a new concept of structural (partition, construction pit, the road network, etc.) permeability coefficient which is different from the concept of the material permeability coefficient. Substantiation of the differences of those concepts is given. Permeability coefficient is essential for solving the most of foundation engineering problems and transport infrastructure. The permeability coefficient of a structure (partition) is determined according to the value of seepage through the partition in case of a variable water-level in the backwater. The study proves that permeability coefficient value for the partition depends on the water pressure, which allows to reconsider the Boussinesq’s hydraulic filtration theory. Soil permeability characteristic depends not only on head pressure in the backwater and initial ground water level, but first of all depends on mechanical and physical properties of soil.

Photoelasticity-Based Study of Stress-Strain State in the Area of the Plain Domain Boundary Cut-Out Area Vertex

In the article, the local stress-strain state of structures and constructions is investigated, various variants for the design of the boundary are taken into account: special lines, points. The acting forced deformations don’t satisfy the compatibility conditions. They have a finite discontinuity along the contact line (surface) of the domains, including the irregular point of the boundary, causing stresses. The subject of article is stress concentrators - the singularity of the stress-strain state of structures and constructions exhibiting “constructive heterogeneity” and discontinuous forced deformations determined on polymer models of photoelasticity and defrosting of deformations. A complex theoretical-numerical-experimental approach, for obtaining and analyzing the stress state in the neighborhood of the irregular point of the plane domain boundary, is proposed to extrapolate reliable experimental data to a domain where the fringe contour is not readable.

Simulation of Blast Load on a Reinforced Concrete Slab in the Time Domain

The article aims at simulation and analyses of reinforced concrete slabs under blast load by finite element method in LS-DYNA. Properties of rebar and composite materials have been changing. The study of efficiency has been performed. The problem of estimation of bearing structures of buildings is extremely urgent due to the increasing incidence of domestic gas explosion in emergency actions, hitting vehicles on the construction of buildings and structures, man-made disasters, acts of terrorism. At present, when calculating the frame of a building for progressive collapse, the technique of removing the heaviest column of the first floor is applied. However, existing methods for calculation of buildings on the progressive collapse caused many disputes. The paper considers simulation of emergency response using the finite element method in the calculation of reinforced concrete frame elements of a building.

The Modified Fiber Cement Panels for Civil Construction

At present for decoration facades of buildings are used ventilated facade systems, that allow restoring the old facades by giving them a more modern look. As a covering material, these systems use different materials, among them fiber cement board (FCB). However, they have high cost and they cannot always be used for building in harsh weather conditions like in Russia.The most widespread and available facing material on the domestic Russian market is fiber cement panels, based on the asbestos fibers. Due to the meanwhile proven carcinogenicity of asbestos, the demand for these products is decreasing year by year to almost zero.Therefore, it becomes urgent to develop a new effective facing material made from environmentally safe and pure raw materials of low cost, capable of ensuring the reliability, durability and energy efficiency of buildings. One of these materials are FCB on the basis of cellulose fibers.Existing FCB based on the cellulosic fibers have following disadvantages: low strength, high water absorption and low resistance to frost. These problems require urgent work to develop issues of quality and durability of FCB, based on cellulose fibers.Based on the realization of three-factor plan of the second-order, the influence of modifying agents on physico-mechanical properties and durability of fiber cement boards, based on cellulose fibers was investigated.

Cracking in Reinforced Concrete Structures of Buildings at Seismic Exposure

Considered numerical experiment model considering simplified-tion, and approximation on the basis of resonance-oscillatory scheme. The idea is based on the cross-shear diagrams of structural failure. Reduce their thickness or increase the possible load. The local nature of the action of the traveling wave leads to the fact that the main phenomena in the wave process are concentrated on the wave front, where the features in the distribution of deformations and forces are concentrated. When the transverse wave propagates, local shifts arise, generating transverse forces of large magnitude. The impact of a wave can significantly exceed the ability of a structure to absorb energy by forming fracture surfaces (cracks).

Optimization of the Thick-Walled Sphere by the Energy Method on the Basis of the Strength Criterion of P. Balandin

A centrally symmetric problem of the theory of elasticity of inhomogeneous bodies for a thick-walled sphere loaded with external pressure and located in a stationary temperature field is considered. The essence of the problem is to determine such a dependence of the modulus of elasticity on the radius at which the stress state of the sphere will be given. The third theory of strength is considered - the theory of maximal tangential stresses and the theory of Balandin P. Thus, the introduction of artificial heterogeneity leads to optimization of the shells, which makes it possible to reduce their thickness or increase the possible load.

Assessment of the Subsurface Fire-Fighting System Pipeline Impact on the Tank Stress State During the Foundation Settlement

The paper objective is to conduct a numerical study of the subsurface fire-fighting system pipeline impact on the structure stress-strain state during the tank settlement. The numerical simulation of the subsurface fire-fighting system pipeline was performed on the basis of the previously designed vertical steel tank model. The PC ANSYS finite element software complex was used to calculate the deformation of the tank structures during the foundation settlement. The values of the obtained stress results indicate that when the vertical steel tank settlement is 20 cm, the equivalent stresses in the wall do not exceed 30 MPa. The paper presents the proposals for possible use of compensating devices for small-diameter technological pipelines in order to minimize the risks of destruction in case of the tank foundation settlement.

Sizing the Residual Deformation of Metal Structures in the Tank After Shell Replacement

The work focuses on numerical simulation of the deformation process in a metal tank after shell replacement of the first ring taking into account thermal effects during the welding process. SYSWELD 2016.5 was implemented so as to determine the welding deformation of T-joint area of the shell and annular plate. The average value of the vertical displacement for the entire part has made up to 0.86 mm, this value is adopted as the base for further calculations in ANSYS. The calculations showed that the neglect of thermal deformation caused by welding process impairs the accuracy of the final values of stress and strain by 4.4% and 5.9%, respectively.

Method of Evaluation of Ground Frost Heaving Pressure on Ice-Ground Barrier of an Underground Construction and Well Strengthening Walls

This article describes experimental and theoretical investigations of heaving pressure formation regalities in freezing grounds, as well as the application of the investigations in practice of building of underground construct ions in frost hazard grounds. The experimental and theoretical investigations demonstrated that it is necessary to make a distinction between a pressure arising at the expense of free (gravitational) water crystal1ization and the pressure ensuing arising at the expense of bound (film) water crystallization freezing ground systems. The implementation of the obtained regularities together with the elaborated analytical methods has permitted to carry out the practical realization of research results. The comparison of a design pressure with actual magnitudes of pressure of rocks (grounds) on shafts strengthening walls (tubings) of Jakovlevskiy mine (Kursk Magnetic Anomaly) obtained on the base of experimental researches of the institute WIOGEM shows sufficiently high convergence of design and actual magnitudes. This fact attests that the application of the proposed method would be appropriate.

The Influence of Cement Plant on the Atmospheric Pollution with Microscale Particulate Matter in Spassk-Dalny Town (Primorsky Region, Russia) – Particle Size Analysis

The paper is focused on the research of the influence of a large cement plant on the atmospheric particulate matter of Spassk-Dalny town by laser granulometry methods. Atmospheric particulates were studied in the snow cover collected during snowfall in January 2015. The sampling points were located near plants, along major streets, as well as in the residential area. It is shown that the atmosphere of this town is notably polluted with particles under 10 µm (PM10). In 8 sample points out of 12 we found hazardous to health microscale particles in significant quantities – from 16.8 to 27.8%. Large particles sized above 400 µm prevail in residential areas of the town amounting to 69.7%. We can conclude that the atmosphere of Spassk-Dalny suffers from the negative influence of a large source of microscale pollution. It is evidenced by the presence in almost all areas of particles under 10 µm in size which may be hazardous for human health and the environment.

Estimation of Practical Significance for Application of Composite Pipes in Comparison with Metal and Polymer Materials

In recent years, highly efficient pre-insulated pipes, made of heat-resistant polymer (usually polyethylene) materials are used during the reconstruction and repair of heat networks. Their advantage is the convenience and ease of installation, long service life, corrosion protection. This material is often used for internal heating circuits when water temperature is up to 95 °C and pressure is up to 1.6 MPa due to limitations of the physico-chemical properties of the material. At the same time for manufacturing of modern, highly efficient and durable pipe system, depending on destination, location and method of installation various composite materials: basalt, glass or carbon fiber; synthetic fiber; rubber, fluoropolymers and others can be used. High specific strength and stiffness of fibrous composite materials, along with chemical stability, relatively low weight and other properties make these materials attractive for the manufacture of pipes for various purposes. The advantages of using pipelines made of composite materials is to increase the estimated service life of heat networks in two times in comparison with metal pipes, reducing the hydraulic and thermal losses due to the physico-chemical properties of the material, and also lower labor and financial costs for the construction of heating mains.

Autodesk Revit and Robot Structural Analysis in Design of Framed Buildings

The Russian state began the gradual introduction of building information modelling (BIM) technologies in construction in December 2014. BIM is difficult to implement in a short time, as it requires a complete re-equipment of the company, retraining of the employees and accumulation of experience and knowledge. The main difficulties in collision with new technologies are the degree of correspondence and adequacy of the obtained results to reality. The solution is the comparison of the calculation methods by new technologies and the traditional approach application for the building and structure analysis. This is the fundamental method of solving the problem in this article. The real project of autocenter has been analyzed. The analysis of individual load-bearing structures of the object is performed: manually, using SCAD Office and Robot Structural Analysis software. The difference between three methods of not more than 4% was obtained. It is good for BIM implementation.

The task of determining the main impact factors on the environment of flood control hydrosystems and their quantitative assessment is considered. The most frequently encountered impact factors on the natural environment during the creation and operation of flood control hydrosystems are determined and considered. For specific hydrosystems, the choice of priority impact factors on the natural environment is proposed to be carried out using expert analysis. It’s recommended at the stage of choice of the location for flood control hydrosystems and the substantiation of their parameters, use the express-assessment of the impact on the natural environment. The article considers the impact of inundation caused by temporarily filled self-regulating reservoirs of flood control hydrosystems on forests, bogs, water quality and ecosystem diversity. The final parameters and operation modes of flood control hydrosystems are proposed to be determined for the minimum of permissible areas of short-term inundation of the upper pool, calculated for each priority environmental impact factor.

Problems of Magnesium Oxide Wallboard Usage in Construction

Magnesium oxide wallboard is the building and finishing material, which has a reputation of new generational ecological constructing material. It has a wide range of uses: as a revetment in ventilated facades’ production, as a decorative material, as different types of formworks for a foundation filling and as a protector against a fire threat. During the study it was considered that magnesium oxide wallboards have some defects, such as moisture formation as a concentrated brine on the surface under special climatic conditions and absence of clear distinguishing between different types of magnesia boards. Usage of this material can become a cause of frame’s corrosion and origin of mold on wooden details. Authors provide the information from a foreign data source about negative consequences of SML usage. In conclusion researchers state that it is necessary to provide a clear magnesium wallboards classification and define technical requirements, which will, in their opinion, lead to Russian standard formulation.

Management and Monitoring of Urban Environment in the Integrated Development of Underground Space

The paper presents the results of developing the system of managing and monitoring the urban environment in the integrated development of the underground space. Its main elements are a block of geotechnical management and monitoring, a block of energy management and monitoring of life support systems, a block of ecological and socio-economic monitoring. The essentials and principles of construction of each block are considered. The key attention is paid to geotechnical monitoring in the construction of underground structures with the use of protective screens. The features of stress distribution in the span tubes and the side walls of the protective screen are established based on the analysis of monitoring data. By means of numerical simulation by the finite element method, the stresses in the span pipes and vertical deformations of the soil mass are obtained over the span from the rigidity of the pipe section area. An improved design of a protective screen with the possibility of regulating its vertical resistance by means of hydraulic jacks is proposed. The effectiveness of this technology in the development of underground space is determined not only by economic, but also by social and environmental aspects.

Organizational-Technological Reliability of Monolithic Construction

Reliability and quality of the organization of work at the transport infrastructure facilities is determined through the analysis of the system of preparation for the implementation of certain technological operations, the establishment and maintenance of a common order, the timing of work, and the supply of all types of resources. During the execution of construction and installation work are conducted periodic inspections of compliance with construction norms and rules. Nonconformities issued in the form of regulations, which indicate the time of elimination of this violation. The calendar plan does not provide for the time spent on eliminating violations. For this reason, the actual period of construction of transport infrastructure are often considerably longer than planned. In this connection, the task was to assess the degree of influence of violations on the efficiency of the functioning and quality of the organization of production processes in transport infrastructure. Analytic studies of this problem concluded that it is necessary to develop a mathematical model for estimating the construction period, taking into account the random nature of the appearance of violations. The study contains a diagram of the technological operations in monolithic construction, the Pareto chart for the number of violations identified by the construction supervision, the main factors affecting the duration of construction.

Production Skills and the PC in Training of Students

The paper evaluates the impact of innovations on the practical level of workforce training for the construction and transportation sector. It has been established that students’ practice skills tend to deteriorate due to economic issues of cooperation with real-life production. It is apparent that the shift of emphasis between manufacturing businesses and schools from partnerships to market relations has become an adverse factor. It is proposed to engage the pedagogical experiences of the sector’s researchers as regards imparting practical skills to students in the environment of academic laboratories. As an example, the paper examines the chair faculty’s working experience in preserving computer-based practice-oriented training processes. It presents a laboratory complex where students of mechanical engineering gain practical skills by using a scale model of working equipment to learn the production technology of topsoil excavation. The paper describes a methodology for a construction student to learn academic knowledge and hands-down skills by engaging their understanding of physical substance of production process components in construction in order to convert their knowledge to a socially useful product, including during construction of transportation facilities and utilities lines. The methodology comprises two stages: practical fieldwork, gaining experimental data, and academic (manual and computer-assisted) calculation of the parameters of the working organ and technological performance. The paper obviously demonstrates how basic safety products can be used efficiently to complement experimental activities with mathematical computation.
