The behaviour of concrete under quasi-static loadings for uniaxial compression, tension and plane stress conditions is studied. The failure criteria of concrete are discussed as well as the methods of constitutive parameters identification are elaborated. The attention is focus on an energetic interpretation of selected failure criteria. The numerical example with concrete damage plasticity material model is shown

Human postural system is taken as complex biological system with specific input and output time characteristics, in this study. Evaluation of measured output characteristics is useful in medical diagnostics or in describing postural system disorders. System theory principle provide suitable basis for postural signals analysis. Participating volunteers were instructed to maintain quiet upright stance posture on firm support surface of stabilometric platform for 60s. Postural system actuation was realized by vibration stimuli applied bilaterally on Achilles tendons for 20s. Postural reaction signal, its time profile and static and dynamic characteristics were evaluated by Method of Developed Statokinesigram Trajectory (MDST).

The purpose of this paper is to investigate a double torsion pendulum with planar frictional contact. The single torsion pendulum with one-degree-of-freedom is an angular equivalent of the linear harmonic oscillator. The second degree of freedom has been obtained by adding a free body to the inverted single torsion pendulum. The free body’s angular displacement is caused by frictional forces appearing in the interface (contact zone) between the free body and the pendulum column’s head kinematically excited at its base by a mechanism with torsion spiral spring. An experimental station has been set up and run to find most unknown parameters of the pendulum from the time series of state variables taken as inputs to the Nelder-Mead method of identification. The obtained results proved significant usability of the identification method in the case of numerical simulation of the pendulum’s dynamical model. It has not been satisfactorily proved in the case of time characteristics coming from a real system that exhibits also some unrecognized physical effects.

In the paper results of studies that aim was to develop a diagnostic method for high-speed marine diesel engines are presented. Polish Navy is operating significant number of engines of this type also on board of submarines. Engines of this type do not have indicator valves, which complicates the assessment of combustion process and their technical condition. Polish Naval Academy in Gdynia for years has been developing methods of diagnosing marine internal combustion engines. In recent years, a diagnostic method for high-speed marine diesel engines based on the analysis of envelope of vibration accelerations generated by the valve gear mechanism and fuel system has been developed. Some tests results made on Mercedes-Maybach MB820 engines used on Kobben class submarines are presented in the paper.
