Abstract:This paper presents the design of a new rotational vibration mill. Experimental research of abrasive wear of grinding bodies in the processing of quartz sand was conducted. The influence dependences of varied process parameters on the specific wear of grinding bodies are demonstrated. Besides, the influence dependence of particle size on the specific wear value is shown.
Abstract:In the paper, the possibility of using an optoelectronic system for measuring the parameters relating to the hydrodynamics of liquid film in two-phase flow of highly viscous liquids and gas was evaluated. The methodology of the measurement and experimental results in relation to the annular co-current air–oil falling flow was given.
Abstract:Technical and economic analysis of a construction project carried out using BIM can improve the process of cost-estimating at all stages of design and construction works. More and more designers choose to use BIM within a range of cost estimates; however, in contrast to design software, cost-analysing BIM software is less widespread and used. The following paper presents problems and issues that could be encountered while performing cost estimates and quantity takeoffs applying BIM tools on the example of a model of a road bridge.
Abstract:In the article, a mathematical model of heat transfer in a storage tank for hot water with a non-uniform initial temperature is presented. The influence of the initial temperature distribution of the liquid in the tank and the influence of thermal resistance of the tank’s walls, bottom and cover on temperature profiles of the liquid in the tank and changes of these profiles in time were analysed. A good conformity of the results obtained based on the process model with the results of measurements of water temperatures carried out under laboratory conditions was obtained.

Abstract:The mathematical model, which allows to predict changes of the coverage degree, the moisture content and temperature of particles in process time, was developed. Taking into account changes of the evaporation surface due to an increasing particles coverage degree in the encapsulation process allows to describe the evolution of particles parameters more adequately and to select of process rational parameters.
Abstract:The purpose of this article was to develop a measurement system for analyzing the dynamic behavior of automotive hydraulic dampers as well as to examine the internal pressures in each hydraulic chamber of the damper. Dampers are one of the components of the vibration/noise system that originates at the contact point/surface between the wheel and the road, and then ends at the body of the vehicle. Specifically, dampers are often a source of flow-induced or motion-induced noise due to the operation of the valves. In this paper, measurement results are presented in the form of time histories of the internal pressures and piston rod acceleration, respectively. Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) graphs are also presented in order to identify the major components of the phenomena under investigation in a frequency domain.
Abstract:The paper presents possibilities of the application of open-cell metal foams in the construction of process equipment. The article also describes results of own experimental studies on hydrodynamic and thermal phenomena occurring during fluid flow through channels packed with aluminium alloy foams. The collected experimental data enabled to determine, among others, pressure drops and the heat transfer coefficient, and to indicate main gas–liquid flow patterns.
Abstract:The 1960s in Poland was a period when formal boundaries of the Stalinist period were being shaken off. The economy, with its reliance on heavy industry, was in dire need of new production facilities, the shape of which was dictated by the available technology. The mounting restrictions imposed by the centrally controlled state and changing investment priorities did not affect production undertakings inasmuch as other construction industry disciplines. At that time, equipment and industrial unit designs were not subject to categorisation yet, and furthermore enjoyed privileged status when it came to acquiring building materials. Such a situation gave designers a free run at shaping their creations to accommodate technological requirements and in accordance with the modernistic line. Numerous outstanding examples of industrial architecture were created, constituting an important element of the Polish post-war architecture. Unfortunately, only a few survive to this day.
Abstract:Accidents at work constitute a heavy psychological and economic burden for companies and societies. The vast majority of cases can be prevented by appropriate and effective preventive measures. Knowledge about the course of events, their causes and consequences is required in order to carry out such actions. The knowledge gained can provide a basis for drawing conclusions of a preventive nature. The article presents a mathematical model, which was used in the study of the phenomenon of accidents in the construction industry, and provides the test results that were obtained using 350 sample cases.
Abstract:The aim of the study was to compare light sources. The paper presents the spectrum of light intensity for natural and artificial sources. Analysis of the spectra was carried out because of their importance for the health of the eye.
