The article presents the results of the study on nuclear damages or injuries of red blood cells (RBCs) and asymmetry of meristic characters of the European perch (Perca fluviatilis Linnaeus 1758) that lives in small and medium rivers of Rivne Region. The research has found that the species representatives living in the small rivers demonstrated worse cytogenetic homeostasis indicators compared to the fish from the medium rivers: The lowest frequency of P. fluviatilis' nuclear damages appeared to be 4.25 times higher for the individuals living in the small rivers given the noticeable excess of spontaneous mutations by average damage frequency. Fish morphological homeostasis demonstrates a tendency to injuries in small rivers as well. The functional relationships between the studied parameters which have been established by the author were "close" for the fish from the small rivers and primary "moderate" for the fish from the medium rivers. It is concluded that the enhanced activity of the stressors existing in the water environment affects the physiological state of the P. fluviatilis species. © by O. O. Biedunkova 2017.

The system CO2 + H2O with the concentration of free carbon dioxide varying from those close to the saturation one to the equilibrium one under environmental conditions has been studied. The dependences of ionic component concentrations on the solution pH are determined. Simultaneous measurements of the electric conductivity and the pH of the solution show that the contributions of ionic components in the carbonate-water system to the electric conductivity of the solution are additive and satisfy the Kohlrausch law with an error not exceeding ±0.5%. © V.R.

Purpose:. The main parameters of soil rippers are determined provided that the cutting force and the coefficient of energy intensity of soil ripping will have minimum values. To ensure the minimum energy intensity of soil ripping, argumentation of parameters of working bodies should be carried out with taking into account the critical depth of soil ripping, because ripping of soil on the critical depth provides the lowest energy intensity. Therefore, there is necessity to determine the force of blockaded cutting and coefficient of energy intensity of soil ripping on the critical depth. Methodology:. Mathematical modeling of processes of cutting and ripping of soil. Results:. To determine the force of blocked cutting of soil on the critical depth, we accept that the soil is homogeneous isotropic medium that is characterized by hooking, internal and external friction, strength and humidity. In accordance with the scheme of interaction of soil with working body (after the projection of all the forces on the horizontal ax), we obtain the equilibria equation from which we determine the force of blocked cutting of soil on the critical depth, and take into account fact that cutting width of working body varies with depth of soil ripping and the cutting angle to supply ripping of soil on the critical depth. When division of force of blocked cutting of soil to cross-sectional area of ripped soil we get coefficient of energy intensity of soil ripping on the critical depth. Findings:. From the mathematical model for determine the force of blocked cutting and coefficient of energy intensity of soil ripping was justified the width and cutting angle of working bodies of rippers that operate on the critical depth. Originality::. Scientific novelty lies in getting the analytical dependence for determination of force of blocked cutting and coefficient of energy intensity of soil ripping on the critical depth based on the depth of cutting, and the physical properties of soil. Practical value:. It lies in the establishing of the optimal cutting angles and width of working bodies of rippers, that working at the blocked cutting on the critical depth, depending on the depth of soil ripping, and the physical properties of soil. © Kravets S.V., Stinio O.

Purpose: To create the assessment method of synergistic effect from impact of factors on the state and the dynamic changes in the structure of water economy system of Ukraine (WESU), using an integrated sustainable water use index (ISWUI). To analyze the synergistic effect that arose under the influence of factors for the period 2010-2012. Methodology: Theoretical and methodological basis of the research composed by concepts that are based on the most commonly used in the economic analysis methods of empirical and theoretical research. The system-structural and synergistic methodological approaches became the most relevant in the research. They led to consider WESU as a complicated system, identifying the individual elements and defining relationships between them. The factual basis of the research became the primary data of statistical monitoring of water resources, data of major economic indicators in the regions of Ukraine, indicators of providing public with water, data of medical statistics of health and morbidity of population, that directly or implicitly depend on water pollution. Findings: The feasibility of using a synergistic approach for assessment of the effect, caused by managing of changes in the structure of WESU in regions, was proved. Own interpretation of the concept of "synergistic effect in water economy system" was posted basing on the definition of other scientists. The parameters for evaluating the synergistic effect, created by influence of factors on changes in WESU, were systematized. The way of synergetic effect assessment was formalized and his calculation for the period from 2010 to 2012 in the regions of Ukraine was made. The results were analyzed and the recommendations on the feasibility of using the proposed method were given in order to improve the managing of changes in the structure of WESU. Originality: For the first time, a comprehensive method of assessing the situation in WESU was presented considering various aspects of the industry. A method of synergistic effect assessment was firstly developed based on the synergetic approach that arises in the dynamics under the influence of factors caused by natural and anthropogenic changes. Practical value: The method of assessment of synergistic effect created by managing the changes in WESU from ISWUI is simple, versatile and ensures the reliability of the results. The method can serve as a tool in the management of water economy system of any regional level.

The phase composition of alloys in the Ag–Bi–S–I system (in the region AgI–Bi–Bi2S3–BiSI) for Т ≤ 550 K was studied by physicochemical analysis methods. Equations of overall potential-forming reactions involving the BiSI and Bi19S27I3 phases were composed. The reactions were performed in the C|Ag|glass Ag3GeS3I|D|C electrochemical cells (C are inert (graphite) electrodes; Ag, D are the cell electrodes; D are the four-phase alloys of the system; and glass Ag3GeS3I is a membrane with pure Ag+ ion conductivity). The linear dependences of EMF of the cells in the range 485–525 K were used for calculating the standard thermodynamic properties of saturated solid solutions of the compounds BiSI and Bi19S27I3 in the AgI–Bi–Bi2S3–BiSI system. © 2016, Pleiades Publishing, Ltd.

Metakaolin forms a part of a complex admixture to self-compacting high-strength concrete. The admixture contains superplasticizer addition of naphthalene formaldehyde or polycarboxylate type, yielding significant improvement in workability and uniformity of fresh concrete mix as well as mechanical properties and durability of hardened concrete. Mathematical modeling of self compacting high strength concrete at the design stage is aimed at determining optimal content of concrete components (in particular, chemical and mineral admixtures) to obtain the desired concrete properties. Three-parameter polynomial models are used for determining the superplasticizer content, required to obtain the same fresh concrete mix workability, hardened concrete compressive strength and correspondingly metakaolin efficiency factor from the strength increase viewpoint. It is demonstrated that the efficiency of metakaolin as an admixture to self compacting high strength concrete depends on the dosage of the first as well as on concrete binder content, water-binder ratio and by the type of superplasticizer used for concrete production. A concrete design method using traditional deterministic and stochastic dependencies is developed. Regression equations, describing the influence of water-binder ratio, binder content and metakaolin portion in binder on superplasticizer content, compressive strength and efficiency factor of metakaolin, are obtained. The concrete design objective function, proposed in this study, allows obtaining the required concrete strength by minimizing the cost of the most unsustainable concrete components, like cement, metakaolin and superplastisizer. © 2012 Elsevier Ltd.

Survey of the works on condensation inside smooth horizontal tubes published from 1955 to 2013 has been performed. Theoretical and experimental investigations, as well as more than twenty five methods and correlations for heat transfer prediction are considered. It is shown that accuracy of this prediction depends on the accuracy of volumetric vapor content and pressure drop at the interphase. The necessity of new studies concerning both local heat transfer coefficients and film condensation along tube perimeter and length under annular, stratified, and intermediate regimes of phase flow was substantiated. These characteristics being defined will allow determining more precisely the boundaries of the flow regimes and the methods of heat transfer prediction.
