Limit Analysis of Thin-Wall Metal Frames Taking into Account their Foundations Rigidity

Abstract

In this paper, the mathematical model of shakedown optimization problem of limit analysis for the thin-wall metal frames under variable quasi-static loads is presented. Authors assume the elastic-plastic flexural buckling in one plane without lateral torsional buckling behavior of members on conditions of the ideal elastic-plastic behaviour of the frames materials. According to Eurocodes requirements, the features of these frames taking into account rigidity of their foundations are described. There is problem with definition equivalent uniform moment factors for frames under variable quasi-static loads, because moment diagram is not constant. Classification of joints by stiffness was analyzed. The cases when the conditions of rigidity are not satisfied were described. The variants of solving tasks for thin-wall metal frames have been developed, for which there is a discrepancy between the classification by stiffness of the column base and the initial design model. It’s demonstrated on the principle scheme of the iteration process. With the help of numerical example, the problems which deal with classification of joints by stiffness on the final step of the optimal design of the thin-wall metal frames were performed.

Variations in lead, cadmium, arsenic, and mercury concentrations during honeybee wax processing using casting technology

Abstract

Beeswax foundations are a necessary material in intensive modern beekeeping. Heavy metals can accumulate in these foundations for decades, as it is a common beekeeping practice to recycle wax. Beeswax samples were analysed using GFAAS for As, Cd, Pb, and Hg concentrations during the production of beeswax foundations using casting technology with a prolonged cooling and sedimentation phase. Significant differences were determined in the concentrations of As, Cd, Pb (p<0.01, all), and Hg (p<0.05) between the three levels of wax in a double-walled steel casting container and comb foundations (CF) during the processing stage. Concentrations (mg kg-1) of the examined metals in comb foundations as the final product ranged as follows: As 0.01-0.88; Cd 1.26-3.55; Pb 82.5-171, and Hg 0.29-1.46. All examined element concentrations demonstrated similar distribution and ratio in different layers, ranging from the lowest concentrations in layers from which wax material is used for comb foundations as the final product, to the highest concentrations in sedimented layer, which represents waste. The obtained results suggest that the described method could effectively eliminate a significant amount of heavy metals from the initial material used for the production of new beeswax foundations.
