Parametric equations of spherical collapse model are used to calculate the values of spherical collapse over density and mass variance, which is further used in bias formulae to find the values of cosmological bias. Spherical collapse over density has been calculated in the range of redshift 0 to 1. Also, it is compared with the value according to the spherical collapse model. Bias is one of the parameters which are utilized to infer cosmological parameters. Extracting the cosmological parameters is very much useful to know and understand about the birth and evolution of our universe. As there is no direct probe to get the idea about the existence of dark matter. Bias factor helps to analyze about dark matter. The bias coefficient of higher order terms in Taylor series expansion are found to be in ascending order. Increasing values of bias indicate the large-scale structure formation at current epoch is more and more clustered. Values of bias are discussed in result. Also, bias values have been analyzed for redshift in the range 2 to 0. The graph has been plotted bias versus redshift. Let’s found bias decreases with decrease of redshift. That means bias evolves with redshift. Bias value less than one and negative value of bias implies that structure formation is in linear region and higher values of bias indicates the structure formation occurs in nonlinear region. Negative value of bias is also called as antibias. That means the structure formation has not started yet. It is still in linear region. The bias value nearly equal to one indicates that the structure formation has been transformed from linear region to nonlinear region. So, the result showing bias values greater than one indicates that evolution of structure formation occurs in nonlinear region.</p> 2022-09-30T15:35:23+03:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Sujata Mohanty, Rajesh Gopal Building a mathematical model to prevent hydrate formation in gas pipelines 2022-09-30T16:18:14+03:00 Abdulaga Gurbanov Ijabika Sardarova Javida Damirova <p>Development of mathematical models of laminar gas flow in certainty and uncertainty conditions were considered.

Various efforts and methods such as adsorption using activated carbon have been developed and applied to reduce the emission. Therefore, this study focuses on the characteristics and performance of bamboo-activated carbons in the adsorption of motorcycle flue gases. This was carried out using different grain sizes (<em>z</em>) of activated carbons AC-M1, AC-M2, and AC-M3 for grain sizes of <em>z</em>≤250, 250&lt;<em>z</em>≤420, and 420&lt;<em>z</em>≤590 microns, respectively, which were derived from swat bamboo and carbonized at a temperature of 750&nbsp;<sup>○</sup>C. Furthermore, physical activation was applied by heating the charcoal at the same temperature under a nitrogen flow rate of 150 mL/min nitrogen. The Thermogravimetric (TGA), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), and adsorption isotherm tests were employed for the characterization of activated carbons. Additionally, the performances of activated carbons for motorcycle flue gas adsorption (CO<sub>2</sub>, CO, and HC) were carried out by a motorcycle emission test. According to the results, activated carbon AC-M1 produced the best characteristics and performance for adsorption of motorcycle flue gas, as it has a pore volume of 0.135&nbsp;cm<sup>3</sup>/g, a specific surface area of 244.69&nbsp;m<sup>2</sup>/g, and a nitrogen adsorption capacity of 87.047&nbsp;cm<sup>3</sup>/g. These characteristics prove to have good adsorption efficiencies at 100&nbsp;%, 87.30&nbsp;%, and 100&nbsp;% for adsorption of CO<sub>2</sub>, CO, and HC, respectively.</p> 2022-09-30T14:32:35+03:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Dewa Ngakan Ketut Putra Negara, Tjokorda Gde Tirta Nindhia, Made Sucipta, I Made Widiyarta, I Putu Hariwangsa Dynamic analysis as a method of wells interaction evaluation in making technological decisions 2022-09-30T16:18:15+03:00 Samira Abbasova Gulbahar Mamedova <p>The complexity of developing oil fields determines the creation and improvement of fundamentally new approaches to the analysis and management of various technological processes of oil production based on indirect methods of interpreting current geological and field information for making strategic and tactical decisions to rationalize it.This article discusses the formation of stagnant and poorly drained zones of oil deposits due to the redistribution of hydrodynamic flows of reservoir fluids.</p> <p>In order to analyze and evaluate the effectiveness of applying the technology to change the direction of filtration flows in the reservoir under consideration, it is necessary to study the influence of non-stationary processes on oil production.</p> <p>Based on the construction of operational maps of total oil and water production, water cut and the degree of interaction by periods of development, the state of the reservoir system is analyzed and conclusions are made about the characteristic features of the direction of water-oil flows with the subsequent formation of stagnant zones.</p> <p>The proposed approach to decision-making allows to carry out the dynamic regulation of hydrodynamic flows in order to stabilize and reduce oil production losses for the period under consideration and make the necessary decision on the issuance of technological recommendations for the impact on the operation of the exploitation object, taking into account the minimization of energy and resource costs.</p> <p>The proposed method was tested on the example of the analysis of the state of development of one of the fields in Azerbaijan, which is in the final stage of development.

The choice of these sources of raw materials is determined by their presence in the north-eastern part of Kazakhstan.</p> <p>Studies of the physical and mechanical and thermophysical characteristics of fuel briquettes from organic mass and bio-charcoal briquettes were carried out. The studies showed the following results: the moisture content of the samples we studied lies in the range from 3.86 to 8&nbsp;%; ash content of briquettes from vegetable raw materials varies from 2.05&nbsp;% to 3.6&nbsp;%, combined briquettes from foliage and coal dust varies from 10&nbsp;% to 14&nbsp;%; average density values varies from 979.91 to 1172.63&nbsp;kg/m<sup>3</sup>; mechanical strength is in the range from 90 to 100&nbsp;%; the yield of volatile studied samples ranges from 9 to 21.4&nbsp;%. Analysis of the obtained characteristics of fuel briquettes demonstrated that they meet the requirements of existing standards.

The generally accepted enthalpy method for determination of the loss has serious drawback it gives accurate results, but in averaged units in which it is impossible to take account of the contribution of the different parts and components of the pipeline in the total heat loss. The unavailability of information on where, how and in what way along the route this loss is formed does not allow prompt and specific measures to be taken for its reduction. An attempt has been made to structure empirically a reliable analytic dependence for determination of the heat exchange coefficient, bringing together the various factors influencing the heat exchange. By the method of the least squares the free coefficient and the exponent have been determined of criterion equation satisfying initial and boundary conditions of the experiment. Based on the obtained results for determining the heat losses by measuring the surface temperature of steam pipelines with a thermal imaging system, a reliable and acceptable method is proposed, which has a place in engineering practice. For this purpose, an industrial experiment has been carried out at three actually operating steam pipelines of different diameters and steam parameters. A criterion equation has been derived that can be used as a mathematical model for software products with a practical orientation for regular assessment of heat losses of steam pipelines. Values of heat losses determined through energy balance of heat carrier and heat flux from the outer surface of the steam pipelines have been compared. Results for the heat exchange coefficient, obtained through a balance have been compared with the analytically determined values based on current standards. A new method has been developed for express evaluations of the current heat losses of the steam pipeline in real time, as the sum of the losses through its individual components gives as average values 9÷12&nbsp;% increased results for the losses compared to the enthalpy method. Its great advantage is that it can be used selectively to determine the losses through individual sections of the steam pipeline.</p> 2022-09-30T14:51:06+03:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Konstantin Kostov, Ivan Ivanov, Koycho Atanasov, Chavdar Nikolov, Stefan Kalchev Simulation study of horizontal axis wind turbine using PVC pipe propeller with elbow tip 2022-09-30T16:18:15+03:00 Bagus Wahyudi Akhmad Faizin Andri Setiawan Sugeng Hadi Susilo Hangga Wicaksono <p>The potential of wind as an energy resource is still not widely used by the community through simple technology to produce electrical power. One simple technology is to use PVC pipe as the basic material for making wind turbine propellers. The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of variations in angle of attack and wind speed on the performance of a PVC pipe propeller wind turbine with an Elbow Tip. Material of blade propeller made by PVC pipe are slice half and twist from hub until tip with 90 degree of rotation. Dimension of width blade wider on the hub (3/4 of circular) and smaller on the tip (1/7 of circular). Face of blade on the hub side facing wind direction (axial) and face of blade on the tip side facing tangential direction or opposite with rotation. On the tip side installed the slice elbow with fit tip blade width. The propeller using PVC pipe with elbow tip is the important part of new design which has been test with CFD simulation and wind tunnel research with best result performance. This research uses CFD simulation and experimental methods with a comprehensive study of the aerodynamic behaviour characteristics in and around the turbine rotor. The results of the CFD simulation was found that the phenomenon positioning of momentum force were place on the outer radius due to addition elbow tip cause increasing the torque. By using elbow tip on blade propeller PVC Pipe Horizontal Axis Wind Turbine with 15° and 30° angle of attack could increasing torque about 200&nbsp;% than without the elbow tip. Beside, using 45° angle of attack although additional with elbow tip could not increasing the torque when the wind speed on 7&nbsp;m/s.

However, there is a rather significant probability of failure of this equipment during the operation of the spacecraft. This is especially observed after half of the spacecraft's lifetime or because of emergency situations. There is a problem which is connected with providing the maximum performance of the AOCS in case of partial failures of their actuators (reaction wheels (RW), magnetorquer rods (MGTR), etc.).</p> <p>Thus, the purpose of this work is the development and synthesis of special algorithms for spacecraft angular motion control in the emergency situations which are connected with RWs partial failures and restrictions of onboard electricity consumption. The approach of synthesis of this control algorithms is based on using mobile control methods which allow to reserve RWs by MGTRs. There are different variants of control loops depending on MGTRs turning on combinations. There were proposed two types of control switching functions: time-periodic and switching by deviation. Also was proposed a methodology of controller synthesis using these switching functions.</p> <p>Using this methodology and computer simulation, it was shown the possibility of providing angular nadir orientation and stabilization of the spacecraft with maximum 1−1.5 deg error in case of time-periodic switching functions implementation.

However, the accuracy of stabilization significantly lower in case of switching by deviation.

However, the great size of the heat transfer surface of the bioreactor drum and its significant ejection momentum during spinning require quite a lot of energy. To decrease this consumption, the main constructive parameters should be optimized. The main reason is the sharp increase in prices for mineral fertilizers, the weak economic condition of most farms, the lack of advanced processing technologies and the use of organic fertilizers.</p> <p>Our aim in these studies was to analyze the types of design and operating parameters of the device for the fermentation of bird droppings.

That will be more difficult when the criteria given for the selection contradict each other. For example, when external cylindrical grinding, the minimum surface roughness requirement necessitates a small depth of cut and feed rate. The material removal rate will be reduced in this case, and this requirement will conflict with the maximum material removal rate requirement. To solve the above problem, a very useful tool is multi-criteria decision-making (MCDM). In this paper, for the first time, MCDM results for powder mixed discharge machining (PMEDM) cylindrical parts of SKD11 tool steel with copper electrodes have been presented. In this work, eighteen experiments with the L18 (1<sup>6</sup>×5<sup>3</sup>) design using the Taguchi method were conducted. Six main input process parameters include the powder concentration, the pulse current, the servo voltage, the pulse on time, and the pulse off time. To select an alternative that simultaneously ensures two criteria including minimum surface roughness (RS) and maximum material removal speed (MRS), four different MCDM methods including MAIRCA (Multi-Attributive Ideal-Real Comparative Analysis), MARCOS (Measurement of Alternatives and Ranking according to Compromise Solution), TOPSIS (Technique for order of preference by similarity to ideal solution), and EAMR (Area-based Method of Ranking) and two methods of criteria weight calculation including MEREC (Method based on the Removal Effects of Criteria) and Entropy methods were selected. The results of MCDM when PMEDM SKD11 tool steel cylindrical parts with two methods for weight determination and four methods for solving MCDM problem were evaluated.

Also, their geometric shapes and material properties allow technicians to actively determine how strong the fits are. In this study, let’s present research on interference fits between steel and brass assembly parts. The experimental processes were accomplished with five pairs of specimens to evaluate the behaviours of surface asperities under a high loading condition. Specifically, the specimen pair includes a C45 steel shaft and a C2680 brass hub, which have different surface roughness values (Ra). Let’s apply high-precision methods in measuring all dimensional parameters and employed axial load tests for distinctively inspecting the steel-brass interference fit performance. In every experiment, the measured responses are:</p> <p>1)&nbsp;the surface roughness values (Ra) before and after loading cycles;</p> <p>2) the axial load (<em>F<sub>a</sub></em>);</p> <p>3) the relative displacement value or the real-time interface length in loading stages (<em>l</em>).</p> <p>The aim of this study is to propose a new relative interference value specifically between steel and brass assembly parts, which can help determine the interference loss value more accurately. It was not concluded that with the relative interference of 2.25&nbsp;‰ the load capability of steel-brass interference fits is extended. Besides, let’s narrow down the predictive loss coefficient (<em>a</em>) for steel-brass interference assemblies ranging from 1.1 to 2.1, which varies from widely used standards considering <em>a</em>=3.

The real and imaginary parts of the complex impedance can show different semicircles in the complex plane that give evidence for the presence of both bulk and grain boundary contributions. Many parameters can be deduced from the analysis of CIS data, such as relaxation times and activation energies. There are some literature data concerning electrical properties of clays and (semiconductor, sand, cement,…)/clay mixtures. Most of the published works are related to the AC conductivity of rocks with the effect of water or oil content but there are no similar studies on the characterization of the microstructure of individual clays as ceramic materials by analyzing their temperature and frequency dependence of their electrical conductivities. Hence, this paper presents an analysis of electric complex impedance of the Fe<sub>2</sub>O<sub>3</sub>/Kaolin composite in the high temperature range up to 740&nbsp;°C. Sinusoidal voltage with frequency in the range [100&nbsp;Hz, 1&nbsp;MHz] is applied to the material in order to measure the electrical conductivity for various concentrations of Fe<sub>2</sub>O<sub>3</sub> from zero to 100&nbsp;%. The activation energies for the conduction and for the relaxation processes are determined and their dependence on the density of Fe<sub>2</sub>O<sub>3</sub> analyzed.

Machine learning models for regression is recognized as a convenient way of improving the estimation for empirical models. Popular machine learning models is support vector regression (SVR). However, the usage of principal component analysis (PCA) as a variable reduction method along with SVR is suggested. The principal component analysis helps in building a predictive model that is simple as it contains the smallest number of variables and efficient. In this paper, we investigate the competence of SVR with PCA to explore its performance for a more accurate estimation. Simulation study and Renal Failure (RF) data of SVR optimized by four different kernel functions; linear, polynomial, radial basis, and sigmoid functions using <em>R</em> software, version (R x64 3.2.5) to compare the behavior of ε SVR and <em>v</em>-SVR models for different sample sizes ranges from small, moderate to large such as; 50,&nbsp;100, and 150. The performance criteria are root mean squared error (RMSE) and coefficient of determination <em>R</em><sup>2</sup> showed the superiority of ε-SVR over v- SVR. Furthermore, the implementation of SVR after employing PCA improves the results. Also, the simulation results showed that the best performing kernel function is the linear kernel. For real data the results showed that the best kernels are linear and radial basis function. It is also clear that, with ε-SVR and <em>v</em>-SVR, the RMSE values for almost kernel functions decreased with increasing sample size. Therefore, the performance of ε-SVR improved after applying PCA. In addition sample size <em>n</em>=50 gave good results for linear and radial kernel</p> 2022-09-30T00:00:00+03:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Shereen Hamdy Abdel Latif, Asraa Sadoon Alwan, Amany Mousa Mohamed
