Application of the finite element method in determination of the natural vibrations frequency of frictional joint

Abstract: In the paper the results of studies on the natural frequency of frictional joint applied in yielding support of dog headings are presented. Analysis was performed on the structural model of frictional joint developed on the basis of finite element method. In the result of conducted studies the natural frequency of the frictional joint and the forms of vibrations corresponding to them were determined. These frequencies were compared with the frequency of vibrations of the dog heading’s contour. The analysis was carried out for two ways of attachment of the frictional joint, and for joints with two and three stirrups.

Methods for supporting the flow of information about the environmental factors in emergency services and prevent action

Abstract: With the development of systems forming the human environment, such as production systems, energy, transport, information be increased the impact the crisis situations on their operation. The basis for the smooth operation of prevention and rescue services in countering the effects of crisis events (such as mass events) is the close coordination and cooperation. Successful operation of emergency services and prevention requires efficient decision-making at all levels of rescue action. Currently, the development of methods and tools of Augmented Reality allows for the delivery of information to support decisions on a wide range of activities undertaken by man. Effective use of this technology requires the collection of information characterizing the environment of potential crises and to provide of this information to the emergency services and prevention. In the context of the current disposal of the central organization of emergency and prevention services in the publication we show supporting for information flows. On this basis, one can consider that the tools of Augmented Reality may significantly contribute to the success of the operation of the emergency services and prevention.

Application of gps technology in surface mining

Abstract: VŠB – Technical University of Ostrava, institute of geodesy and mine surveying has been cooperating with Severočeské doly j.s.c. (SD) in important research project since 2007. The main goal is improve control system for opencast mining. Two bucket wheel excavators (K800/103 and KU300/27) were equipped with measurement hardware at the Libouš Lignite Mine (North Bohemia brown coal basin). The position of the bucket wheel centre is computed by means of GPS data, inclinometer and incremental measurements. Data is transferred to a base. All the values measured are saved in this database. The surface layout of the mine as well as positions of underground geological layers are updated on a regular basis in the digital model of the mine. The main aim of the research is verifying the system in connection to digital model for short time prognosis of qualitative parameters of coal (Ad, Sd, Qr, Wr and MS), continuous automatic computation of mined materials (m3, tons) and continuous checking of creation of the movement surface/plane of the excavator and mining goals. Mine surveyors have a lead role in the working team. The paper describes possibilities of using the GPS for mine surveying and for production planning.

Civilizations and production methods

Abstract: The article presents issues related to the impact of a given civilization on the quality of production techniques and methods used by a given society/in a given country. It is based on the comparative science of civilizations founded by Feliks Koneczny. An essence of a civilization is explained and a mutual interaction between civilizations (the battle of civilizations) is pointed out. Five civilization's components (the categories of social being) are described as a tool for identifying the type of a given civilization. That components' interaction (having influence on a given civilization's resilience and ability to meet the social needs) is highlighted. Seven civilization types existing nowadays (according to F. Koneczny) are characterized and their capabilities to develop science, economy and to generate capital goods are discussed. A conclusion is that the Latin civilization is the most capable. Using presented distinguishing marks civilizations are divided (acc. F. Koneczny) into two groups: collectivistic and individualistic. A model of a new civilization introduced by Richard Nikolaus Coudenhove-Kalergi is presented and is confronted with the Latin civilization. It is stated that the mentioned model of European civilization meets the criteria of the collectivistic civilization. Properties of an economic development and production in societies of collectivistic and individualistic civilizations are identified as consequences of the choice of a social system.

Evaluation of waste packaging management system in Lubuskie

Abstract: An important objective of the Directive 2008/98/EC is to break the links between eco-nomic growth and the generation of waste in all EU countries and increase of efforts to prevent waste. In case of production of wastes, the national harmonized standards deter-mine the level of recovery and recycling of wastes, which should be achieved in each province by the end of 2014 and the ways of disposing of them in a safe way for humans and the environment. This article presents some parameters concerning a packaging waste management (including achieved levels of recovery and recycling) in Lubuskie in propor-tion to the country and are subjected to analysis.

How to merge environmental information using meta-analysis

Abstract: The article describes how to merge (integrate) information derived from different environmental studies. For such methods that are designed especially for combining of multi-sources information the term meta-analysis was coined in the statistical literature. Meta-analysis is a large family of advanced and continuously developed methods that go far beyond the well-known classical methods of data merger (integration), i.e. based on correlation or regression analysis. This issue is especially important in practice of environmental research when many results of detailed, but independent studies are available, e.g. obtained by different scientific groups, at different time or during different campaigns, from samples of different sizes etc., whose results must be properly generalized in order to take well-founded and precise conclusions.

Structure of computer management systems design

Abstract: A Computer system for company management is of a module structure and provides control of all the areas of the company operation, from planning and supply through production distribution, sale, equipment maintenance, finances and accountancy. The module structure of the system provides a possibility of implementation only of those components which due to the company character and specificity of its operation are indispensable and useful. Attention should also be focused on the system flexibility, that is, possibility of its adjustment to changing environmental conditions, through modification and addition of new modules.
