The paper presents the analysis of accessibility and usability of Landsat 8 Satellite Imagery for the purpose of Satellite Derived Bathymetry (SGB) products generation of the area of near-shore waters of the Polish coast. General assumptions of the SDB, Landsat program and factors affecting the products generation process have been described in details. Examples of SDB results, generated using both GIS software and Matlab, are presented on the example of chosen areas of Gulf of Gdańsk. The advantages and disadvantages of the SDB method are presented in the discussion and conclusion part with the proposed directions for the future works.
Epidemiological models play an important role in the study of diseases. These models belong to population dynamics models and can be characterized with differential equations. In this paper we focus our attention on two epidemic models for malaria spreading, namely Ross-, and extended Ross model. As both the continous and the corresponding numerical models should preserve the basic qualitative properties of the phenomenon, we paid special attention to its examination, and proved their invariance with reference to the data set. Moreover, existence and uniqueness of equilibrium points for both models of malaria are considered. We demonstrate the theoritical results with numerical simulations.
The paper presents a concept of overall BLDC drive model. Target model will be improved with a functional model of battery cell, which is commonly used as a power supply for the drive. The paper shows previous achievements in form of a functional BLDC motor model. Also, simulation results are presented. These are the partial results, that aimed to verify the basic model’s correctness as a basis of future developments. The procedure of power source selection presented in the article is vital to specify the technical parameters of modelled battery cell.
Detection of small objects in the airspace is a crucial task in the military. In the era of today’s unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) technology, many military units are exposed to recognition and observation through flying objects. They are often equipped with optoelectronic warhead making a way to collect essential and secret data of the military unit. Modern technical solutions make it possible to implement some methods facilitating detection of flying objects. A lot of them utilize computer vision techniques based on image processing algorithm. Therefore, in this article, we present an analysis of the most promising algorithm for detection of small flying objects.
This article is a research on the effect of material segregations due to squeeze parameters on mechanical properties of high pressure die cast parts. The technology of squeezing is applied in high pressure die casting technology with the aim to improve the internal material health of the castings from aluminium alloys, such as AlSi9Cu3(Fe), components incorporated in assemblies as mechanical and hydraulic parts. The objective of this article is to determinate the influence of the secondary effects of squeeze technology on the mechanical properties of parts produced from AlSi9Cu3(Fe) alloys, with HPDC technology.
This paper deals with the design of metamaterial (MTM) substrates to be used in electromagnetic devices. In particular, the approach has been considered for different investigations having the scope the realization of antennas on flexible substrates. The importance of the topic resides in the potential of conforming the antenna to/on desirable shapes. Flexibility is well exploitable either in advanced communication systems or in biomedical applications, just to mention some. The proposed MTM is made of metallic spherical inclusions of AISI52100, which are embedded in a polymer host. The paper aims to assess the feasibility of increasing the performance of a microstrip patch antenna, and to decrease its size by using the MTM substrate, which is able to locally control the permittivity of the substrate and to create electromagnetic band-gap regions outside of the patch.
The article presents the study of mechanical properties of welded steel from which the hull of a modern mine destroyer was made. Keeping the tightness of ship compartments during operation depends on the strength of these joints. The results of testing the mechanical properties of 1.3964 steel and its welded joints subjected to a static tensile test were presented, and a Johnson – Cook material model was proposed. The material model can be used in CAE (Computer Aided Engineering) simulations related to hull strength analysis.
