Investigation of Filtering and Sensing Properties of Complementary Metamaterial Resonant Cells by Computer Simulation
In this paper we propose a resonant structure based on complementary metamaterial that can be used to control and monitor parameters of a material under test. We used CST Studio Suite to create a computer model of the proposed device and simulate it performance. The performance of the sensor is characterized by its scattering parameters that can be calculated by simulation. The results obtained are then analyzed and used to derive the relation between the sensor’s resonant frequency and the characteristics of the analyte. The proposed resonant structure and method can be used for nondestructive evaluation of dielectric substances, defect control, monitoring and measurement applications.
The paper deals with an investigation of relief formation in Europa's surface. Jupiter's satellite Europa is close in size to the Moon. Its surface is covered with a layer of ice crust of thickness 10-30 km. Europa's surface is of large interest, because under the ice crust there is an ocean of liquid water creating conditions for possible life. The entire ice surface of the satellite is covered with a system of bands, valleys, and ridges. These structures are explained by the fact, that the ice surface is rather mobile and it was repeatedly broken from internal stresses and large-scale tectonic processes. The analysis performed showed that compressing, extending, shearing and bending stresses can influence some arbitrarily separated section of Europe's ice surface. The computer simulation with a finite element method (FEM) was performed to see, what types of defects could arise from such effects. The heterogeneity of the satellite's ice cover in thickness, density and temperature was taking into account during the simulation. The calculations, carried out for the cross-section of a thawed ice structure's area, have shown that, the most dangerous, from the crack formation viewpoint, is the shear stress at loading application angles of ±90°. Using models of thawed ice patches in the distributed field of temperatures, the effect of mechanical gravitation-tidal forces on the formation of surface defects on Europa was studied. It is shown that fractures and cracks can have various forms depending on the stress-strained state arising in their vicinity. The formation of such defects is caused by the chaotic set of many factors, mechanic and temperature ones predominantly. Copyright © 2013 by the International Astronautical Federation.

The results concern roll pass design for rolling a round bar of a 20mm diameter from a 55mm diameter input. Concerning materials, this roll pass design must cover a wide range of steels, from low-carbon micro-alloyed steels to stainless steels. The roll pass design proposal takes into consideration lower plasticity of certain steels. The comparison was enabled by suggesting two roll pass designs. The classical oval-round roll pass design, where the maximum extension coefficient is set to 1.55 in oval and 1.22 in round grooves. The second roll pass design uses a combination of smooth part of the roll (curves) and round roll passes. Distribution of the extension coefficient in individual passes is similar to that of oval-round series. The paper also compares values of energy-force parameters calculated analytically using the method of finite elements. If we compare the distribution of temperature, stress and size of the grain, it is proved that the oval-round roll pass designs are the best as far as the balanced distribution of the above-mentioned values is concerned. The roll pas design combining smooth part of the roll with a round part does not achieve such balance. However, its advantage lies in far lower requirement for the needed length of the working part of the roll. Five passes are carried out on the smooth part of the roll, which considerably cuts down the required length of the roll body. Therefore it is this variant that will be used in the laboratory of wire rolling created within the project RMSTC.
Mathematical and computer simulation of economic processes.
A procedure has been proposed for calculating limited orbits around the L2 libration points of the Sun–Earth system. The motion of a spacecraft in the vicinity of the libration point has been considered a superposition of three components, i.e., decreasing (stable), increasing (unstable), and limited. The proposed procedure makes it possible to correct the state vector of the spacecraft so as to neutralize the unstable component of the motion. Using this procedure, the calculation of orbits around various types of libration points has been carried out and the dependence on the orbit type on the initial conditions has been studied.

The paper provides a number of proposed draft operational guidelines for technology measurement and includes a number of tentative technology definitions to be used for statistical purposes, principles for identification and classification of potentially growing technology areas, suggestions on the survey strategies and indicators. These are the key components of an internationally harmonized framework for collecting and interpreting technology data that would need to be further developed through a broader consultation process.
