The following report shows methods for determination of the coefficients of stiffness and damping, for softening the vibrations, which ensue in an armoured vehicle’s suspension from the shooting of a mounted machine-gun. The methods are based on a model of the movement smoothness, in which is additionally included the signal of the machine gun’s recoil.

This paper presents thermal analysis with finite elements for a plate of steel covered on the surface with a thin layer of Teflon. There is the possibility of identification of that part responsible for beginning of the thermal degradation using the vibrational model. The thermal analysis with finite elements made with ANSYS program enables monitoring and determination of plate variation of temperature. This variation of temperature could cause significant changes in guided wave propagation.
The use and maintenance of technical systems throughout their lifecycle aims at achieving goals that allow for high values of productivity and availability characteristics of these systems. In the economic policy of each state or private organization or state institution, there is the right to determine the type of adequate maintenance system within the maintenance strategy adopted. Thus, the types of maintenance systems recognized in the technical domain are analyzed from the point of view of the two previously-mentioned features, productivity and availability, thus making the predictive maintenance system, derived from the preventively-planned one, advantageous for all organizations. It is obvious that the current trend is to spread this predictive maintenance system, according to which the interventions will be carried out before the malfunction occurs, depending on the periodically measured values of global pressure, flow, energy consumption, temperature, current, voltage, vibrations, etc.

This paper presents aspects of the steering gear onboard a merchant ship by analyzing aft and bow systems based on automation and use of modern propulsion. The choice of the transverse propeller is based on several economic considerations (its price, consumption, efficiency, etc.), technical considerations (positioning, size, vibrations induced in the ship’s hull), and maneuverability considerations (the ship’s turning rate under the action of the propeller. Accordingly, the propulsion system can come in various sizes, power values, shapes of the tunnel, and can present fixed or variable pitch propellers. Depending on the maneuverability of the ship, the transverse propulsion is analyzed by taking into account two tests: the turning of the transverse propulsion system test in calm and windy weather, and the steering test. The automation system is designed to control and monitor the on-board operational systems and equipment, and it encompasses a wide range of control, monitor and alarm. The integrated navigational equipment includes the following sub-systems: navigation consoles, ship handling consoles, dynamic positioning consoles, anchoring and deck operations consoles, and propulsion system control consoles. The propulsion control system is especially dedicated to the propeller and thruster control system, resulting in a joint control system, and the cables are reduced in number since the communication lines are used in series. The mandatory condition for successfully solving the problem with the complex automation of naval installations and equipment is the construction of complex automatic control systems (ACS), consisting of: automated commands or remote controls, a system of collecting, processing and displaying information, as well as a system of control, fault detection and diagnosis
