Agamalov Yu. R. Optimization of outgoing inspection of multifunctional immitance meters


The ways to optimize the outgoing inspection (primary calibration) of immitance parameters meters  based on the adaptation principle are discussed. A structural-analytical method is proposed for synthesizing optimal calibration procedure with respect to the criteria of minimizing check measurements and the number of reference gages as well as their pattern rationalization. The methodís effectiveness is evaluated for the case of commercial R5058 ac bridge.



Yerofeev A. N., Yudin V. I. Neuron networks application for determining spectral channels in laser gas analysis tasks


A neuron network-based algorithm for express analysis of compound gas mixtures is offered. The original gas analysis problem is transformed to a similar one of smaller dimension.



Serkin A. G., Sizov V. P. Slight displacement simulation in laser interferometer-based measurement transducers


A mathematical model for slight displacement measuring process based on laser interferometers is developed and investigated subject to the vector-type nature of laser emission and the Abbe calibration principle. The feasibility of measurable linear displacement range extension and reflectorís angular rotation control are vindicated theoretically.



Tikhonenkov V. A., Sorokin M. Yu. Temperature error compensation in a sensor with vibrating element
