TECHNIQUE FOR NEUTRON SCATTERING ANISOTROPY MODELING IN Pn-APPROXIMATION
A. N. Ivanov, N. V. IvanovIn the multi-group approximation the neutron scattering anisotropy is described by the coefficients of expansion into Legendre polynomials. At numerical problem solving the low order expansions of three or five terms are usually employed. The scattering angle cosine distribution density, retrieved from such expansions, can have negative values, which makes impossible solving the transport problems with the Monte-Carlo method in the same setting with difference methods. To avoid this, the initial density is replaced by the equivalent discrete density. The equivalency is understood as the agreement of the density moments. To smoothen the radial effect, the combination of triangular densities preserving the first two initial density moments is added to the discrete density.

|COMPARATIVE ANALYSIS OF THE QUASI-DIFFUSION APPROACH AND THE AVERAGED COSINE METHOD FOR SOLVING RADIATION TRANSPORT KINETIC EQUATION IN A SCATTERING AND ABSORBING MEDIUM
A. S. Isakova, N. G. KarlykhanovThe paper studies the properties of kinetic equation solutions in scattering and absorbing medium on the example of problem calculations with known numerical and (or) analytical solutions using the quasi-diffusion method and the method of averaged cosines. The paper shows that the method of averaged cosines along with the TVD-approach-based difference scheme gives more accurate solutions, especially in layered systems, as compared with the quasi-diffusion method, for which the traditional difference scheme with the second order of accuracy has been built.

|ON LIQUID CONTRACTION OF A GRID CELL IN THE VOF METHOD
S. V. YatsevichThis paper considers the problem of liquid contraction of a polyhedral grid cell with nonplanar faces at the geometrical reconstruction in the VOF method for numerical solving problems with free surfaces. The paper gives the description of the constructive approach: the form of the working function is determined, its construction is presented. The authors offer the corresponding algorithm of the liquid contraction determination at the free surface piecewise-planar reconstruction.

|TECHNIQUE OF FATIGUE STRENGTH ESTIMATION FOR MECHANICAL STRUCTURE PARTS UNDER MULTI-STAGE RANDOM VIBRATIONAL LOAD
N. A. Bilyk, T. N. Artem'evaThe paper describes the method and the algorithm of fatigue strength estimation for mechanical structure parts under multi-stage random vibration with random spectrum. The acting load is determined at the piece mounting points or on the unsafe cross-section of the part. The method allows the estimation of the part fatigue breakdown probability, the level of cumulative damage at each load stage and for the whole loading period, the mean value and the root-mean-square deviation of the part life-time logarithm. The program complex realizing this approach has been created for an AWP. The fatigue strength and the strength reliability were calculated for copper and steel piping under the impact of three-stage random vibration at the piece mounting points. The proposed approach is able to decrease the cost of designing and mechanical structures development, and to reduce the duration of preproduction efforts.

|HYBRID MICRO-TARGET MODELING FOR INERTIAL HEAVY ION FUSION WITH ACCOUNT FOR NEUTRON-NUCLEAR REACTIONS
V. T. Zhukov, E. A. Zabrodina, V. S. Imshennik, M. V. Maslennikov, O. V. Nikolayeva, M. D. ChurazovA theoretical and calculational justification of the U shell (pusher) using to significantly increase the energy yield was previously made for the hybrid inertial heavy ion fusion power micro-target. This justification included the accounting for the neutron-nuclear reactions in the pusher, formulated as generalized Akhiezer and Pomeranchuk solutions for cylindrical symmetry. This paper shows the results of such micro-target study basing on a later more comprehensive mathematical model describing the neutron-nuclear processes in the multi-group approximation. The process of micro-target implosion is described in the 3-temperature hydrodynamic approximation with account for the thermonuclear reaction kinetics, typical for the deuterium-tritium fuel. The paper includes the results of optimized calculations, proving the prospective character of the hybrid inertial heavy ion fusion micro-targets when the natural uranium is used as the pusher material.
