Discontinuous solutions of mixed problems and block elements
Ecological bulettin of research centers of the Black Sea Economic Cooperation, 2017, no. 3, pp. 15-21.

A number of mixed boundary-value problems in the theory of elasticity are not traditional in the sense that unstable states of the system arise, leading to destruction. These include mixed problems with discontinuous boundary conditions, in which the behavior of contact stresses and displacements, which indicate the destruction of the medium, appear. In some cases, such boundary problems have unlimited energy. Examples of such mixed boundary problems are the contact problems for two rigid dies, which have approached the contact state but have not merged into one stamp, as well as two adjacent cracks, which disappear with a small distance between them. It is shown that such problems, arising in seismology, theory of strength, construction, have singular components, in some cases with unlimited energy, and can be solved by topological methods with pointwise convergence, in particular, by the block element method. Numerical methods based on the application of the energy integral to such problems are not applicable in connection with its divergence. In the case of cracks, taking into account the investigation of the properties of solutions of integral equations obtained earlier, it is proved that a set of cracks lying in the same plane whose vertices are removed by some distance will uncontrollably merge with logarithmic growth when the distance between the vertices reaches a certain minimum.

Keywords: block element, topology, integral and differential factorization methods, exterior forms, block structures, boundary problems, starting earthquakes.

On indentation of heterogeneous strip
Ecological bulettin of research centers of the Black Sea Economic Cooperation, 2017, no. 3, pp. 22-29.

This paper presents a method for constructing approximate solutions to the problem of parabolic stamp indentation into heterogeneous elastic strip tightly engaged with the non-deformable base. The proposed method is based on the variational formulation of the problem and involves simplification of the potential energy functional through hypothesis of displacement fields introduction. Auxiliary problem of the action of a concentrated load on the boundary of an inhomogeneous strip is solved using the variational Lagrange principle. A system of two second order differential equations with variable coefficients with respect to the displacement vector components on the upper bound of the strip is obtained. Solution of the contact problem of parabolic stamp indentation into heterogeneous elastic strip in the case when the elasticity moduli depend only on the transverse coordinate is obtained. The characteristic relations such as “force - size of the contact area”, “indentation - size of the contact area” and the stress distribution in the contact zone for some different laws of heterogeneity are plotted.

Keywords: heterogeneous, elasticity, strip, variational method, indentation, contact problem.

Allocation and movement of roots of the Lamb wave dispersion equation in complex plane
Ecological bulettin of research centers of the Black Sea Economic Cooperation, 2017, no. 3, pp. 30-37.

The classical Lamb problem is considered for steady-state harmonic waves in a free elastic layer under the applied load. An integral representation of the solution is reduced to an infinite series in terms of residues at the poles of Green’s matrix. These poles coincide with the roots of the Lamb’s dispersion equation and define eigenwaveforms that are normal modes of the layer. The pole arrangement on the continual dispersion curves in complex plane of wave number and their frequency dependency are studied. Two transformation mechanisms of the complex wave numbers into the real ones are observed. The first mechanism is regular. In this case, complex roots become real through the imaginary axis. Second one is irregular, when complex pole becomes real without passing imaginary axis and forms a backward wave. These Lamb waves have zero group velocity at the cutoff frequencies. Their appearances are accompanied by resonance phenomena.

Keywords: elastic layer, dispersion equation, Lamb wave.

The interaction of source-generated spherical waves with an elastic plate immersed in acoustic fluid
Ecological bulettin of research centers of the Black Sea Economic Cooperation, 2017, no. 3, pp. 38-45.

The interaction of acoustic waves excited by a point source with an elastic plate immersed in an acoustic fluid is considered. To estimate the range of applicability of various approaches, the mathematical models has been developed on the base of the simplified Kirchhoff–Love plate and the full set of 3D Navier-Lame equations for elastic laminate structures. Explicit integral representations for excited and scattered wave fields have been derived using the Fourier transform technique. In the far-field, the bulk and guided waves are described by an asymptotic representations obtained from those integrals using the stationary phase method and the residual technique. Among others, the derived solutions enable quantitative analysis of time-averaged wave energy fluxes in the considered source-structure system. The representations for the total source energy and its portions carried by reflected, transmitted and guided waves have also been obtained. The test comparisons with the numerical results of other authors are presented.

Keywords: elastic plate, integral and asymptotics representations, acoustic medium, point source, balance energy.

Cellular automata modeling of migration and gravitational sedimentation of impurity in a liquid flow
Ecological bulettin of research centers of the Black Sea Economic Cooperation, 2017, no. 3, pp. 46-52.

To date, the main direction of numerical methods for calculating turbulent flows is the solution of the averaged Navier-Stokes equations. Cellular automata (CA) models of gas dynamics make it possible to broaden the possibilities of studying diffusion and migration processes in the atmosphere and in the aquatic environment.

In the paper we present an approach to modeling the process of pollutant migration in a flow of liquid, special attention is given to simulation of the gravitational sedimentation mechanism of a heavy impurity. Thus, in terms of cellular automata, we constructed a model of migration of a single-component substance in a flow for a plane case. We also implemented a CA simulating the propagation of an impurity that settles under the effect of gravity.

The modeling of the flow of a substance using particles that characterize the presence of a mass unit at a given point in space involves their motion in the direction specified by the velocity vector, which changes when particles collide with obstacles or with each other. The fulfillment of the laws of energy, mass, and momentum conservation is provided by the formulated rules of particle movement and collision. When modeling the flow of a liquid with an impurity, each particle is endowed with a sign indicating whether it is “pure” (ie, an element of the main flow) or an impurity. If the mass of impurity particles is different from the mass of “pure” particles, greater, for example, it is necessary to take into account the gravitational interactions of the particles in the model. In this case, an additional phase appears in the elementary automata, implementing the effect of gravity, performed in an asynchronous mode and realizing the movement of the “heavy” impurity particles from upper to lower cells. This phase can be added to the main automaton in a certain number of cycles, which allows us to adjust the mass value of the impurity particles.

The results illustrating the evolution of the cellular automaton modeling the propagation of the “heavy” impurity entering into a flow of liquid over a certain time interval are presented. The transition from the physical description of the process to its CA model and back is accomplished by comparing physical characteristics with the average number of particles in a certain number of cells.

Keywords: cellular automaton model, flow, impurity, transport, gravitational sedimentation.

On the residual stress definition in the round plate
Ecological bulettin of research centers of the Black Sea Economic Cooperation, 2017, no. 3, pp. 53-59.

The inverse coefficient problem of the initial stress definition in the oscillating round elastic plate is considered. The plate vibration is axisymmetric and it’s forced by the homogeneous oscillating load. The information about plate deflection on some fixed frequency serves as input data.

Two methods for the direct problem solving are introduced. The first method is based on the shooting method. The second is based on Ritz method and reduces the problem to the linear equations system. Results of the direct problem solution are presented for different distribution laws of the initial stresses. Boundary problems both for simply supported and for the clamped edge are considered. Results are compared with well-known analytical results for the plate without initial stresses. Results obtained using different methods show good coincidence. Eigen frequencies are also evaluated using two different methods.

The inverse problem is solved by the Galerkin method. Initial stress definition results are presented for different frequencies and boundary conditions.

Keywords: residual stress, inverse coefficient problems, elastic plates.

Synthesis of optical waveguide with complicated cross-section shape and 3D waveguide structures in glass
Ecological bulettin of research centers of the Black Sea Economic Cooperation, 2017, no. 3, pp. 60-66.

Physics and mathematical modeling of multi-step processes of waveguide structures fabrication in glass K-8 with complex form of it cross-section, based on the combined, solution of two-dimensional nonlinear diffusion equation, electrostatic equation and wave equation has been made.

The equations were solved by finite-difference method. With the help of calculated values of silver ion concentration in glass the refractive index profile (proportional to concentration) was determined and, as a next step, optical characteristics of waveguide was calculated by analysis of it mode structure.

Model of partially buried waveguide has been made, which has asymmetric refractive index profile. The experimental sample of such waveguide has been made. The model describes the fabrication of waveguide channel in K-8 type glass, where the burial process is performed with the taper-shape mask covering the part of waveguide surface, which leads to different value of burial depth along waveguide longitudinal axis. It was shown that lateral shift of waveguide concentration profile, caused by direction and density of electrostatic flux at angle between waveguide axis and mask edge, having the value less than 1,5 degree, doesn’t affect the optical energy loss in the waveguide.

Also the modeling of technological processes of single-mode optical waveguides fabrication in two vertically placed toward each other layer in order to build 3D integrated-optic circuit. The simulation was made in order to select technological parameters with similar values, with the working wavelength 1.55 micrometer. The results of calculation showed that according to this purpose the concentration of melt for the second ion exchange must be half of it value for the first one; the gap width in mask for the first step - 2 micrometer, for the second exchange - 5 micrometer.

Keywords: integrated optics, ion exchange in glass, 3D waveguide optical circuits.

Variational algorithms for identifying power source of impulse point pollution
Ecological bulettin of research centers of the Black Sea Economic Cooperation, 2017, no. 3, pp. 67-72.

The environmental situation in the Azov sea requires the establishment of reliable systems of environmental monitoring that can effectively evaluate its condition in areas exposed to technogenic impact. To obtain such information on the state of the object is the efficient application of modern computing technology. The decision of problems of different pollutions propagation in the sea is possible on the basis of methods of mathematical modeling and methods of solving inverse problems, when due to the assimilation of measurement data is required to identify certain parameters of the transport model. Currently, variational methods of assimilation and the method of adjoint equations are actively developing and are used to solve Oceanographic problems. Algorithms for data assimilation of measurements based, as a rule, on the minimization of a quadratic cost function, characterizing the deviation of model solutions from measurement data. Transport model of a passive impurity acts as constraints on variation of input parameters. In the present paper the variational methods of identifying power instantaneous point source pollution based on the solution of adjoint tasks and variational task. In addition to search for the desired value applied valuation method and the variational method of filtering of linear systems of equations. Numerical experiments were carried out using the hydrodynamic model of the Azov sea. The received fields of the currents used in the passive admixtures transport modeling. Numerical experiments have shown that using variational algorithms for identifying power instantaneous point source required a single iteration. Due to identification of the variables in the space and time parameters of the pollution source additional iterations are required. When implementing variational algorithms for identification in case of noisy measurement data is filtered. When implementing the valuation method and solving the corresponding system of equations necessary additional filtering. In General, the numerical experiments showed a reliable performance of the considered algorithms identify the power source of the contamination, in relation of transport model of passive tracer in the Azov sea.

Keywords: variational algorithm, identification of input parameters, passive admixture, transport model, Azov Sea, transport and diffusion of pollutions, assimilation of data measurements.

Seiche oscillations in a partially enclosed basin
Ecological bulettin of research centers of the Black Sea Economic Cooperation, 2017, no. 3, pp. 73-83.

The study of seiche oscillations in the open entrance basins is an important applied problem. Even relatively small level fluctuations caused by seiches can be accompanied by strong horisontal flows which impede navigation and are dangerous for moored ships. In this work within the framework of the linear shallow water theory the seiche oscillations are studied in a rectangular basin of constant depth. The analytical solution is obtained for the case of the nodal level line location at the entrance to the basin. The structures of the seiche oscillations is compared for closed and partially closed basins. Their similarities and differences are revealed. It is established that the seiche oscillation periods in a basin with an open entrance are always smaller than the periods of the corresponding modes in same dimensions and depth closed basin. It is shown that the transverse seiches have a two-dimensional structure in open entrance basin. Their wave flows velocities depend on the horizontal dimensions and depth of the basin. In a closed basin, the wave flows of transverse seiches are one-dimensional, their magnitude does not depend on the horizontal dimensions of the basin and is inversely proportional to the square root of the basin depth. In the open entrance basin nodal level lines of the longitudinal seiches are shifted from basin entrance as compared to the nodal lines in a closed basin. The lower mode of the seiche in the open entrance basin is the Helmholtz mode. The wave flow for the Helmholtz mode is always directed perpendicularly to the entrance to the basin and its maximum velocity does not depend on the width and length of the basin. It is directly proportional the initial deviation amplitude of the free surface and inversely proportional to the square root of the basin depth. The greatest velocities of the flows take place at the open boundary of the basin.The estimates of seiche periods and wave flow velocities are obtained for the Akhtarskiy frith (the Azov Sea).

Keywords: seiches, free waves, long waves, wave flows, open entrance basin, partially enclosed basin, Helmholtz mode, analytical solutions, the Azov Sea, Akhtarskiy frith.

To the question of the formation of profiled silicon crystals at its growth by Stepanov’s method
Ecological bulettin of research centers of the Black Sea Economic Cooperation, 2017, no. 3, pp. 84-94.

In this article the processes of formation of single crystals during its growing by Stepanov’s method are studied. This growing method consists of drawing crystals through the crystal former (shaper). The presence of a form-building agent (i.e. non-free growth of crystals) leads to increase in concentration of defects in the crystal structure, which decreases the quality of solar cells. In this regard, the article explores the question: what forms of growth arise during the growing of silicon single crystals by Stepanov’s method. Typical defects that arise when growing single crystals of silicon in the form of ribbons and pipes are considered. Experimental investigations of defects in profiled crystals have shown that the defects are characterized by the formation of twining structures, i.e. two neighboring single crystals separated by an atomic plane. The influence of the seed orientation on twining formation process is studied. In particular, the peculiar angles between the growth directions and the twins formation are found. The formation of mosaic structure which competes with the twin structure and is displaced by the latter is observed. The appearance of spiral structures during the growth of single crystals of tubular forms is also observed.

To explain the features of formation we calculated (per one atom) the interaction energies of neighboring parallel atomic layers. The Lennard-Jones potential was chosen as the interaction potential. The results of the calculation showed that among the planes with small values of Miller’s indices the plane (112) possesses the smallest interaction energy. The family of planes equivalent to the (112) plane has a close orientation, and the angles between its directions are in good agreement with the angles in which direction the twins are formed. The presence of three close directions of twinning also explains the formation of spiraling structures when growing silicon single crystals with tubular cross section.

Keywords: solar cells, profiled silicon, Stepanov’s method, twinning, crystallographic planes, Miller indices.
