Analysis of application of heat loss recovery system using organic Rankine сycle
for drive of process equipment
The analysis of heat exchange processes during cooling of the heated surface of the process equipment is carried out on the basis
of the equations contained in the ANSYS Fluent package. When modeling heat exchange processes, the following boundary conditions
are adopted: the temperature of the heated surface; the coil heat exchanger is located at a distance from the heated surface of the process
equipment. From these results, we can draw the following conclusions: the increase in the temperature of the heated surface leads
to the increase of the heating zone of the refrigerant with high capacity and, hence, to increase heat capacity; increasing the refrigerant
flow rate, the lower the temperature of the refrigerant at the exit, but increases the thermal capacity; increasing the pressure of the heated
refrigerant increases the thermal; this design of the heat exchanger allows you to achieve the necessary power for the operation
of the drive by: changing the flow rate of the refrigerant, the excess pressure of the refrigerant, the number of elbows, as well as by installing
a heat-reflecting casing.
Keywords: heat energy, heat recovery, heat exchanger, mechanical engineering.

Experimental and computational studies of radiation panels of life support system
Environmentally friendly and renewable energy sources are currently relevant and in demand. One of such energy sources is solar radiation,
which can transmit up to 1,5 kW of thermal energy per square meter of the earth’s surface. This energy can be converted into electrical energy
using solar panels, which have several disadvantages. The main one are low efficiency and short service life. Another way to harness solar
energy is by using solar collectors, which convert the sun radiation into thermal energy.
Keywords: life support system, radiation heater, solar radiation, heat flux, renewable energy sources, thermal performance, insolation.

Investigation of applicability of Peng–Robinson and GERG-2008 equations of state
of real gas for calculating properties of Freons for refrigeration machines and compressors
A study of real gas state equations Peng–Robinson and GERG-2008 with respect to calculation of Freons R404A, R408A and R410A has been
carried out. Four Freon parameters are calculated during the study: saturated vapor pressure at the saturation line at some Freon temperature,
Freon density at saturation pressure and some temperature, enthalpy and entropy at the same pressures and temperature. The data obtained
from the calculation of Freon by the above equations are compared with the experimental data for each of the above Freons. As a result of this
work, data have been obtained to evaluate the accuracy of the Peng–Robinson and GERG-2008 equations of state for each of the three CFCs,
to evaluate the effectiveness of these equations, and to provide recommendations for the calculation and application of these equations
in the design and mathematical modelling of refrigeration machines.

Investigation into the effects of surface condensation in steam-driven twin screw expanders /
trans. from Engl. M. A. Fedorova
During the operation of twin screw expanders with slightly superheated vapours or even two-phase fluids, surface condensation on machine parts
occurs during the filling period and the expansion phase when the working fluid is in contact with cooler inner surfaces. This heat exchange from
the working fluid to adjacent machine parts effects the working cycle and the efficiency of these machines. Short time scales and the periodicity
of the process indicate the condensation process is best described by models for dropwise condensation. In this paper the effects of surface
condensation on the operation of twin screw expanders are initially discussed in a simulation-based investigation. Chamber model simulation
coupled with a thermal analysis is used for the thermodynamic simulation, whereby heat transfer coefficients are systematically varied. It is found
that during the inlet phase condensate emerges on the inner surfaces of the machine being substantially cooler than the working fluid. This results
in a higher mass being trapped within the working chamber and, thus, an increasing mass flow rate of the machine. An increase in power output
is, however, not observed. The results obtained from chamber model simulations are finally compared against experimental data of a screw

The position of liquid fuel residues in tank of worked-off rocket stage during ballistic descent
The results of modeling the behavior of liquid residues of the rocket fuel component in the fuel tank of the worked-off rocket stage on a ballistic
trajectory are presented. The simulation is carried out for the following variants: during the controlled descent of the rocket stage and when using
the technology of evaporation of liquid rocket fuel residues in the tanks of the spent stage. It is established that during the controlled descent
of the spent rocket stage along the ballistic trajectory at the site of its turn and up to heights of 20 km, the liquid under the influence of overloads
is distributed in the form of a film in the area of the bottom and side surface with a coverage area of up to 35 %. At the height of the maximum
value of the axial overload, liquid fuel residues in the form of a film move to the area of the bottom and the adjacent side surface of the fuel tank.
The total coverage area is about 22 %. The introduction of a hot coolant into the fuel tanks to vaporize the liquid remnants of rocket fuel radically
changes the picture of the behavior of the liquid. Due to the high speed of the coolant in the tank, axial overload has little effect on the distribution
of fuel residues in the rocket tank.
Keywords: fuel tanks, modeling, two-phase flow, rocket fuel, ballistic trajectory.

Some features of impact penetration of penetrators into ground of celestial bodies
The article discusses the features of the inertial explosion of metal products and the prevention of its occurrence during its impact introduction
of a metal penetrator into the ground of celestial bodies. The possibility of an inertial explosion in metal penetrators is determined when
calculating the critical overload of the Gcr that exceeds a certain threshold value for each metal. These values are determined for a number
of alloys and high-purity metals widely used in rocket and space technology for Earth and space temperatures. The features of reducing
the critical overload threshold of the Gcr for space conditions at cryogenic temperatures and ways to prevent an inertial explosion
