N. Davitashvili, G.Sharashenidze. “Problems of Applied Mechanics”. Tbilisi,
2004, ¹ 1(14), p. 9-15 , (Engl.).

In present work, the accuracy of the basic kinematic and dynamic parameters
of brake gear of a railcar’s wheel with one-sided press of shoes taking into
account increased clearances in all joints is investigated. The problem of
accuracy is investigated with the use of a computational program, developed
for the most loaded links of joint. There are obtained the numerical characteristic
parameters for frictional forces and reaction, and also for the angular velocity
of rotation of intermediate link with the different values of the coefficient
of dry friction. Results are represented in the form of graphs and diagrams
of the dependence of parameters being investigated. 4 ill. Bibl. 8. Engl.;

BRIDGE DECK DISPLACEMENT CONTINUOUS MEASURING DEVICE AND PERIODICAL REALIGNMENT
SYSTEMS FOR SLOW MOVING LANDSLIPS DESIGNED TO MINIMIZE TRAFFIC INTERRUPTIONS.
G. Danieli, G. Fragomeni, D. Mundo. “Problems of Applied Mechanics”. Tbilisi,
2004. ¹ 1(14). p. 22-29, (Engl.).

The paper presents the most recent developments on electronic bridge control
studied for a bridge located along a southern Italian Motorway in an area where
a landslip is in slow yet continuous motion. A previous bridge was closed for
beam misalignment caused by the landslip action. A new bridge was recently
designed with much sturdier foundations, but even during the initial construction
phases it was evident that a static solution was undesirable, if not impossible.
Jet, based on the observations of the last twenty years, tire foreseen movements
are relatively small, 20 cm being the maximum horizontal measured displacement
in that period. A further version of the bridge has thus been proposed, characterised
by lighter and longer decks, in order to negotiate the section with fewer elements.
Moreover, the monitoring and repositioning systems have been thoroughly redesigned,
to allow an almost continuous adjustment of the bridge decks, severely limiting
the realignment times, in order to reduce traffic interruptions. A reduced
number of interferometer lasers have been used in the project, using rotating
drums with mirrors individually preset to sweep the entire measuring field.
Lifters will substitute the props as active connections between pillars and
decks, thus being able to support all traffic induced dynamic stresses in both
vertical and horizontal direction. On the top of each lifter an elastic interface
bearing strain gauges will enable the measurement of tangential stresses as
well as uneven distribution of the load, providing further information on the
necessity of beams realignment. 10 ill. Bibl. 11. Engl.; summ. in Russ.
