In this paper is carried out comparative analysis of arising in passenger car’s optimal brake leverage transmission’s joint connections with clearances friction and reaction forces. A dynamic model of optimal brake leverage transmission with clearances is applied for research. The additional contact motion of system is selected for the carrying out of comparative analysis, when transmission rod endpoints represent the internal elements of joint connections with clearances. Are developed the equations of equilibrium and are obtained the functional interdependence of dynamic loadings in the joint connections with clearances, according of dynamic loadings distribution for contact points of rods and vertical suspensions. In the expressions of comparative analysis are provided the significant geometric values of clearances as well as the phenomena of dry, wet and quadratic friction in the joint connections. For the arbitrary kind of friction phenomenon would be selected the values of developed by brake cylinder and brake shoe pressing force on the car’s wheel. The mathematical formulation of the dynamic loading’s comparative analysis gives the possibility to apply the principles of analysis in the sol of problems of kinematic and dynamic synthesis of optimal brake leverage transmission. 1 ill.

Structural Models of Random Vibration’s Experimental Data. C. Mert, A. Milnikov. Problems of Mechanics”, Tbilisi, 2011, ¹ 1(42), pp. 33-36, (Engl.).

A method of analysis of mechanical ossilations’ experimental data’s (experimental time series) internal structures based on Singular Spectrum Analysis is discussed. It has been shown that in the case when the Time Series contains deterministic additive components rank of the trajectory matrices equal to number of parameters of the components. Also it was proved that both eigen and factor vectors repeat shapes of the additive components and both eigen values and eigen vectors can be divided into additive groups. Some useful patterns of deterministic components were identified, which permit to provide graphical analysis of times series Internal Structures. Bibl. 12. Engl., sum. In Russian.

In the article is given the development of new designs of roll surface of gantry cranes running wheels. The existing running wheels of hoisting cranes are cylindrical in shape and lateral flange on two sides, which are extensively worn. With the change of the hoisting crane’s wheels roll surface’s shape of the and giving for it the possibility of axial movement is achieved the minimizing of transverse forces that arises at crane moving due the deviations of wheel, rail or railway geometrical parameters from the permissible values of technical standards. As a result is reduced friction between the rolling-sliding contact surfaces of wheel and rail, and consequently decrease the additional vibrations of crane’s metalware, thus is achieving the improvement of wear resistance and crane’s running wheel and total operating life. 2 ill.

ELECTRICAL CONDUCTING AND PARAMAGNETIC PROPERTIES OF CHANNELS FORMED AFTER LASER BEAM IRRADIATION OF SOME POLYMERS. J. Aneli, E. Semiletova, N. Bakradze, T. Dumbadze.  Problems of Mechanics”. Tbilisi, 2011, ¹ 1(42), pp. 49-53, (Engl.).

Formation of electrical conducting channels with paramagnetic properties on the surface of three type polymer plates (phenol-formaldehide and epoxy resins, polyacrylonitril) under influence of CO2 laser irradiation at the presence of air have been studied. It is shown that the magnitude of surface resistance of the investigated polymers depends on polymer type and irradiation energy. The appearance of electrical conducting regions in the polymer materials is due to laser-chemical transformations of macromolecular physical and chemical structures near the polymer plate surfaces, leading to formation of double conjugated bonds. These structures are characterized also with paramagnetic properties- by method of ESR the free radicals are discovered in the transformed regions of polymers. The obtained results practically are analogous to ones obtained in such polymers after thermal treatment at high temperatures. However here are some advantages. At last case for obtaining of conducting materials on the base of dielectric polymers it is necessary the use of high vacuum. Besides of such method don’t allows the formation of conducting channels with desired square and configuration on the surface of polymer plates in very short time (about several seconds) at present of air.  5 ill.

TO THE THEORY OF TEA LEAF TWISTING PROCESS: CRITERIA OF TWISTING AND AN EQUATION FOR THE DEGREE OF THE TEA MASS TWISTING. A. Tvalchrelidze, B. Kankadze. “Problems of Mechanics”. Tbilisi. 2011, ¹ 1(42), pp. 54-60, (Engl).

For the closure of system of equations, modeling the tea leaf twisting process, it is necessary to apply an additional equation describing the time variation of the twisting degree at a material point of the mass. This equation must contain the so-called twisting criterion. There are proposed several admissible versions for this criterion. 5 ill. Bibl. 2. Engl., sum. in Russian.


Investigation of fuel economy of gas turbine in hybrid cars. M. Ben Chaim, M. Brand, O. Gelashvili, N. Navadze.  Problems of Mechanics”. Tbilisi, 2011, ¹ 1(42), pp. 61-66, (Engl.).

Though since recently, hybrid cars are having acceptable technical parameters. Until now, hybrid cars have been basically using traditional internal combustion engines, either working on diesel or gasoline, due to their state-of-the art nature and relatively high thermal efficiency. However, when analyzing engine operation modes in hybrid cars, and more particularly, their ability to operate in an optimal mode, a gas turbine usually comes to mind, which is comparable to other thermal engines due to its exceptional technical properties. Determining its performance in hybrid cars in terms of fuel economy alone is technically incorrect, since all aspects of this technical solution shall be taken into account. This paper is an attempt to evaluate the performance of gas turbines as a main source of energy in hybrid cars by means of system analysis.  1 ill. Bibl. 16. Engl.; sum. in Russian.

Low rank tensor approximation algorithm in Singular Value Decomposition Problem. C. Mert, A. Milnikov. Problems of Mechanics ”, Tbilisi, 2011,
¹ 1(42), pp. 70-79, (Engl.).

A new method of computation of singular values and left and right singular vectors of arbitrary non-square matrices has been proposed. The method permits to avoid solutions of high rank systems of linear equations of singular value decomposition problem, which makes it not sensitive to ill-conditioness of decomposed matrix. On base of Eckart-Young theorem, it was shown that each second order r-rank tensor can be represent as a sum of the first rank r-order “coordinate” tensors. A new system of equations for “coordinate” tensor’s generators vectors was obtained. An iterative method of solution of the system was elaborated. Results of the method were compared with classical methods of solutions of singular value decomposition problem. Bibl. 9. Engl., sum. In Russian.
