Presented by the National Technical University of Ukraine "Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute"

Author: Tsybulnyk Serhii

The purpose of the work is to substantiate and improve (on the basis of modern computer-integrated technologies) the protection and destruction prevention system for the tanks with environmentally hazardous substances that are exploited in hard-to-reach places under the influence of natural and man-made disturbances.

The author substantiates and develops the means of wind load protection for tanks. Characteristics of these means are defined in order to ensure a 40% reduction of the maximum pressure on the walls of vertical cylindrical tanks.

The visualization subsystem has been substantiated and developed on the basis of monitoring models of the object for displaying and predicting characteristics of the stress-strain state, spatial position and vibration state under real-life load conditions.

The results of the work were implemented at the National Antarctic Scientific Center of the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine in accordance with the list of projects of the State Special-Purpose Research Program in Antarctica for 2011-2020.

The economic effect of the implementation is the conclusion of two licensing agreements on the developed software components.
