    LOGISTICAL RISKS OF MARITIME TRANSPORT PROCESSES

    Trans Motauto World, Vol. 3 (2018), Issue 2, pg(s) 84-86

    Risk exists objectively in any marine enterprise, since the human presence of a person on the sea is accompanied both by circumstances caused by the irresistible forces of nature and directly by activities in the sphere of trading navigation. Risk management in the logistics supply chain is a complex multidimensional problem addressed in the process of identifying and assessing the risks and taking measures of protection against them.
    In logistics, risk refers to the likelihood of an insured event occurring, as well as the possible damage caused by this event. Risk and an insured event can be described by using methods of the reliability theory. In this case, reliability is the probability of operation of the logistics system with failure or with no failure.
    In order to identify rational methods and techniques for insurance, it is advisable to construe the logistics system as the process of movement of material resources.

    PROSPECTS FOR THE TRANSPORTATION OF LIQUIFIED GAS FROM THE CASPIAN REGION TO EUROPE

    Science. Business. Society., Vol. 3 (2018), Issue 3, pg(s) 122-123

    Georgia proposes to supply Caspian liquefied gas to the European market via the alternative route – by building a terminal for exporting liquefied gas on the Black Sea coast. Compressed gas will be delivered from Georgia to the Romanian port of Constanta on tank vessels.
    Kazakhstan regards this route as an option of delivery of liquefied gas to the world market.
    Turkmenistan is also studying options for exporting liquefied gas through Azerbaijan and Georgia.
    To participate in the project as a vendor, Turkmenistan could supply liquefied gas by the Caspian sea to Azerbaijan for its further transit through Georgia to Europe.

    THE EFFECTS OF TRANSPORT ON THE ECOSYSTEM AND HUMAN HEALTH

    Trans Motauto World, Vol. 2 (2017), Issue 5, pg(s) 187-189

    The growth rates vehicles pose a significant threat to the physical and chemical status of the atmosphere and negatively impact on human health and viability of other living organisms. The ecological status of airspace in the cities of the modern world, is determined by numerous factors, among which the leading position is taken by motor vehicles, during operation of which, along with the exhaust gases, more than 200 chemical compounds are emitted into the atmosphere.

    The paper describes the results of studies of motor vehicles on highways adjacent to the territory of Kutaisi, from ecological standpoint.

    As a realistic way for solving the problems would be the use of alternative fuels, rational organization and management of traffic flow, and the large-scale introduction of electric cars and hybrid motor vehicles.

    PECULIARITIES OF REDUCING THE NUMBER OF CUSTOMS-TRANSPORT FORMALITIES UNDER CORDITIONS OF TIME AND CONVEYING DISTANT CONSTRAINTS

    Trans Motauto World, Vol. 2 (2017), Issue 4, pg(s) 152-154

    Transport service in modern conditions includes not only cargo transfer itself from suppliers to customers, but also a large number of freight-forwarding, information, customs and transaction operations, cargo handling, insurance and protection services and so on. The introduction of modern logistics management into the customs clearance practice allows for increasing organizational-economic stability of transshipping processes. The paper dwells on the tendencies in the application of customs logistics for the purpose of reducing the number of the customs clearance procedures for vehicles and goods under conditions of time and conveying distant constraints.

    THE NOISE FROM VEHICLES AND TRANSPORT FLOW

    Trans Motauto World, Vol. 2 (2017), Issue 1, pg(s) 19-20

    Increases in road traffic lead to the expansion of areas of the acoustic discomfort, and the noises from vehicles acquire social importance. The noise as a set of sounds is characterized qualitatively and quantitatively by two main indicators: the sound pressure or intensity level, which have different effect on the human body. In addition, in terms of the effect on the human body, the prefence is given to the noise equivavlent level. The study of the noise equivalent level can be carried out in two ways. The first one consists in fact that at a given moment of time, at any point in space, there are summarized the noise level or sound energy intensity from all radiation sources, but another way implies summarizing the selected sound energy sources during a certain time period. So, in order to determine the noise equivalent level of one vehicle during that time period, which is required for passing a certain section, it is necessary to know those laws, which characterize traffic conditions and the calculated changes of the noise level in these conditions.

  • DRIVER HEALTH AND TRAFFIC SAFETY ON THE TOURIST ROUTES

    Trans Motauto World, Vol. 1 (2016), Issue 4, pg(s) 16-18

    Based on the results of studies carried out in the field conditions, there are given some recommendations for drivers of vehicles moving on tourist routes with mountain road conditions, which will reduce likelihood of traffic accidents for them.

    The paper also describes the results of studies carried out in accordance with the methodology of health check of drivers of vehicles moving on the tourist routes. As the evaluation parameters, there have been used several indexes as follows: the harmony of driver’s body structure and his/her physical development was evaluated by Quetelet-2index; death-birth and power indexes were used for evaluation of the power of the apparatus of external respiration and hand muscle strength, accordingly; the nature of nervous vegetal regulation was determined by means of systolic and diastolic pressure and chest compression frequency of hemodynamics indices; for evaluating the adaptation level by Kerdo index and Robinson index there was used the screening procedure.

    Reliability of driver depends not only on his/her qualification and experience, but the state of his/her health and ability to work are of high importance as well.

    THE CUSTOMS LOGISTICS CONCEPT FOR THE SOUTH CAUCASUS TRANSPORT TECHNOLOGICAL SYSTEMS

    Machines. Technologies. Materials., Vol. 11 (2017), Issue 3, pg(s) 128-130

    South Caucasus with its geopolitical position and diversity of natural resources is a unique region in the world. A concrete expression of this fact is the EU’s “TRACECA” project, which binds the Central Asia, Caspian and Black Sea basin states to one another. This line the Eurasian freight logistics corridor runs through the South Caucasus, which guarantees the economic growth and stability in countries of the region. Strengthening the transit capacity of the South Caucasus countries and improving overall competitiveness of transport corridor will be contributed by the development and formation of a new concept of a single transport and logistics system – the regional customs logistics.

    In order to allow fast, safe and efficient movement of commodity flows through the South Caucasus transport corridor, the regional customs logistics should create a single standard of customs processing of freight. This can be accomplished within the “ASYCUDA World” program by creating the appropriate module.

  • DETERMINING THE INFLUENCE OF VIBRO-ENERGY OF INTERNAL COMBUSTION ENGINE ON CAR SUPPORTS AND FRAME

    Machines. Technologies. Materials., Vol. 10 (2016), Issue 4, pg(s) 57-58

    When the internal combustion engine operates there are arising forces acting on the supporting elements, and by both value and sign they represent variable forces. They vary depending on time, depend significantly on load conditions of engine and are characterized by different vibro-frequency energies. These energies are unevenly distributed due to fact that the engine design comprises the elements having inertial, flexural and dissipative properties, frequency characteristics of which often vary within a wide range. The paper describes the method for determining frequency characteristic of vibro-energy transferred to the frame by introducing the vibro-energy transfer coefficient, which allows for determining frequency characteristics of vibro-energy transferred to the frame, on the basis of which, in turn, it becomes possible to determine efficiency of bearing shoes.
