Frictional heating effects in the plane contact
of layer and rigid flat punch

Thermal effects due to the frictional heating in sliding contact of a
thermoelastic layer and a rigid insulated flat punch are investigated. The
contact problem is treated by the Fourier integral transform method and is
reduced to the system of singular integral equations which is solved
numerically. Influence of the frictional heating on distributions of the contact
pressure and generated temperature is presented for different values of
thickness of the layer. Comparison with the corresponding results for a
halfspace is done.

Microstretch model of type II superconductors

The Eringen theory of microstretch electromagnetic
elastic solids is applied to describe the behaviour of typeII
superconductors interacting with a pinned dense vortex lattice.
The electromagnetic, mechanical and thermal fields interactions in
superconductors are considered. The electromagnetic interactions
are described within the framework of the classical
electrodynamics of microstretch elastic solids. The complete
system of field equations is presented consisting of the balance
laws, the constitutive relations and the jump conditions on the
discontinuity surfaces. The linear magnetoelasticity equations of
microstretch superconductors are presented.

Calibration of power and energy meters of laser radiation

The paper presents a project of calibration chain used
in metrology of laser radiation. A method of reproduction and
sequence of transfer of the units of laser radiation from primary
standard to measuring instruments of these physical values are
described, and uncertainties of measurement as well as fundamental
inspection methods are shown. Schemes, principles of reproduction
and transfer of the units of power and energy as well as basic
metrological characteristics of the links of calibration chain are proposed.

Thin dielectric electrodiffusion masks for Ag^{+} 
Na^{+} ion exchange applications

A new method of thin dielectric mask preparation for
Ag^{+}  Na^{+} ion exchange applications was developed.
Electrodiffusion bonding of Alfilm to glass was used to obtain
very thin dielectric Al_{2}O_{3} layer in the Alglass
transition zone. After Al removal, the quality of the dielectric
mask was tested in Ag pure thermal diffusion and electrodiffusion
processes in molten AgNO_{3}.

Shear velocity inversion procedure for Love waves

An inverse solution is presented to the seismic inverse problem for
onedimensional shear velocity variations. The Love waves, travelling
in a layer overlying a halfspace incident upon deltafunction potential,
are considered. The equation of motion for Love waves is transformed to
the Schrödinger equation and then the potential is recovered by applying
GelfandLevitan and Marchenko procedure.

Electron plasma upper hybrid kinetic symmetries

Symmetry group of integrodifferential equations describing nonlinear
upper hybrid waves in magnetized electron plasma is found. It is shown
that the extension of the symmetry in the cold plasma limit allows us
to build the general solution in this case.

About the properties of attraction sets of two models of physics
of the atmosphere

Dynamical properties of two simple models derived from
the equations of physics of the atmosphere are investigated in
this paper. Attention was paid to the structure of attraction sets
(especially to their borders) of the attractors existing in the
models. The influence of precision of the integrating procedures'
on some of the attractors identification was investigated. The
mechanism of destroying a strange attractor (by the nonlinear
resonance) in a Lorenz system with thermal forcing was found.

On diffusion and thermodiffusion in a gravity field

The modified Fick law has been introduced in the paper:
S. Piekarski, On the modified Fick law and its potential
applications (J. Tech. Phys., 44, 2, 125131, 2003). The
first purpose of the present paper is to give a simpler
"derivation" of the modified Fick law than that originally
presented. Namely, it can be introduced as a particular case of
the Wojnar equation (R. Wojnar, "Nonlinear heat equation and
thermodiffusion", p. 296, Eq. (2.1), Rep. on Math. Phys., No 1/2,
Vol. 46, 2000). The third equation discussed is the
EinsteinSmoluchowski equation. All equations mentioned above,
contain a potential for the force, acting on the diffusing matter.
The important fact is that, for isothermal conditions, all the
equations mentioned above are identical. In this article we try to
describe the effects of the constant gravitational field on the
diffusion processes. We propose an explicit form of the potential
for which the equilibrium concentration profiles are consistent
with the experimental results. We compare shortly our results with
two models of the diffusion processes in a gravitational field
described in Huang's book [8] as well as with other opinions
concerning this subject. As an example of technological
application of the presented theory, the diffusion of the atomic
hydrogen in fluid iron is proposed.
