Performance data of basic meters for low gas velocities are presented. Possible errors of thermoanemometric and ultrasonic measurement techniques are discussed.



Zhedunov R. R. Early accident recognizing system using the equipment failure probabilities


The paper discusses the design of an early accident recognizing system. It proposes to improve the existing fuzzy-logic-based early accident recognition technique with additional data about possible standard equipment failures. A model exemplifying the application of the improved techniques is formulated. A numerical model is built for evaluating early accident recognizing system’s response speed. The results obtained can be useful for anti-wreck system design.
