7.A1.3. Reflection of some theoretical aspects of intellectual property in Georgian legislation. /G. Chiladze/. Science and Life. - 2010 - ¹1. - pp. 77-81. - geo.; abs.: geo., rus., eng.

The right to invention is an inviolable right of a citizen. Theoretical approaches to natural law and industrial property provided a basis for the first patent laws. Intellectual rights represent the sui generis rights. They substantially differ from the property rights to things. The copyright and invention law represent a combination of personal (moral) and property rights. A patent is an individual agreement between the inventor and the state. The inventor is much restricted within the patent rights, yet he can enjoy it without applying to formal invention patenting procedures.

7.A1.4. Demarcation between instigation and provocation of felony. /G. Abesadze/. Caucasus International University Herald. – 2010. - #2. –pp.110-120. –geo.; abs.: geo, eng., rus.

The article discusses the problem of demarcation between instigation and provocation of felony. The western criminal law literature provides different opinions about the issue. The investigation particularly distinguishes the Swiss version of culpable participation doctrine, known as the theory of social disintegration. The theory of social disintegration failed to explain the nature of instigation and it left the following problematic situation open. Namely, if the instigator encroaches on the actor’s personality, while the actor encroaches on any specific good protected under the special part of criminal law, then the so-called social integration depends on legal good. Thus, demarcation is not participation, as it has an independent good of encroachment. According to this theory, the actor has the same good of such encroachment. Thus, said doctrine in general denies the participation institute and erases the distinction between the instigator and the actor as of accomplices. Provocation of a felony is also the temptation of the actor. Therefore, the concept of intention should also imply a temptation. For qualifying an action under Article 145 of the Criminal Code, the decisive importance is given to the direction of the criminal’s intention.

7.A1.5. Is revenge a motive or purpose? /R. Kvaratskhelia/. Caucasus International University Herald. –2010. -#2. –pp.121-126. –geo.; abs.: geo, eng., rus.

The paper discusses whether revenge is a motive of crime or its purpose. Motive and purpose are psychological categories. The criminal law literature considers the motive of crime as the inner condition of a person that pushes him toward an action and guides him during commission of a crime. Some researchers equalize a motive with necessity and thus consider the need that motivates a criminal act to be the motive of crime. Other researchers criticize such a view and treat necessity as a social relationship of an individual towards things, which always exists and is characteristic of any individual according to his/her character, yet not every individual commits a crime. Therefore, based on all the above, motive is the principal or the first ground for commiting an offence. Consequently, we can conclude that the revenge is not a motive of crime but rather the purpose of a criminal action taken by an individual.

7.A1.6. Some issues regarding the guilt of a homicide committed in the heat of passion. /G. Mukhadze/. Caucasus International University Herald. – 2010. - #2. – pp. 127-130. – geo.; abs.: geo, eng., rus.

This essay deals with the interests towards homicide committed in the heat of passion that has long existed in Georgian criminology. It is conditioned by two causes: first, by permanent requirement to judiciary practice for precise criteria of qualification of the said act; second, by essential changes in the Georgian criminal law doctrine that required the working out of a new approach towards the problem of guilt. Consequently, Georgian scientists had to review a whole range of conceptions, which failed to meet demands of the present day. Given complexity of the issue, the authors briefly discuss peculiarities of the attitudes of Georgian scientists to some conceptual approaches, singling out only the guilt’s psychological argumentation of the estimation of personality conceptions of victim and the criminal.

The transition of countries from the authoritarian regime to democracy and rule-of-law state might be considered to rest upon the legal reform. When defining the legislative strategies the actual legal practice should be taken into account. The paper aims at contributing to the establishment of the unified legal practice. The Criminal Code of Georgia tends to liberalize the penal policy. It should be mentioned that while enforcing a whole range of provisions provided therein the principles of justice and legality should be adhered to. When defining the elements of crime, the legislator criminalizes the act in question. This is what is implied by the guarantee and legality function of criminal law: nullum poena, nullum crime sine lege. Through contrasting and diversified standpoints the paper highlights the author’s view on the structure of a criminal law norm in the context of the problems of corpus delicti. Based on the value philosophy the place and role of corpus delicti in the structure of a norm is identified.

It is possible that the obligation performers may not coincide with obligors. Subjects of obligation are not always creditor and debtor, and the obligation may be both performed and accepted by another person. As a rule, the debtor itself executes the obligation, but the creditor can be offered the execution by a third person - not party to this obligation relationship. The original parties to the obligation may be changed by other people. The change of a creditor is called assignment, or cession, and the change of an obligor- the change of an obligation.

7.A1.19. Elements of objective side of theft. /M. Jamalov/. Caucasus International University Herald. – 2010. - #2. – pp. 156-167. – rus..; abs.: eng., rus.

The basic elements of the objective side of theft are presented by specific act – secret withdrawal of another’s movable thing for the purpose of illegal appropriation. Consequently, the definition of “theft” that was widely adopted in the post-Soviet republics is critically described. The term “theft” is quite vague and doesn’t answer the demands of modern civilized science of developed countries. It is not known either by Azerbaijan Civil Code. Article 203.3 of the Azerbaijan Civil Code prohibits the withdrawal of property from the owner. That is why the term “withdrawal” in this case is quite logical. The objective composition of theft involves immanently the purpose of carrying out the act and it is not accidental, because the purpose of breaking the legal prosperity always defines the lack of objective truth and presents its objective criterion. The given survey describes critically the various subjective theories of consequence as well. The special attention is paid to the problems of causal connection establishment.

7.A3.5. Globalization, economic theory and Georgia. /R. Asatiani/. Works of Georgian Academy of Economic Sciences. – 2010. – vol. VIII. – pp. 121-149. – geo.; abs.: geo, eng.

The article states that the recommendations that formed the basis for the economic development of Georgia failed to answer the actual economy development level and national interests. This is the main reason for failure of economic reforms. There is not a single country in the world where the economic policy was not based on the Keynesian model of growth. The main reason for the global financial crisis is in the lack of macroeconomic regulation, restriction of the government regulation of the credit policy and expansion of the virtual economy. The Friedman’s monetary policy has played the biggest role in this. Today, every country has suffered from the global crisis with negative effect on economic growth and aggregate supply rate. Logically, the postulates of the Keynesian theory are resurrected. This could be seen in active involvement of government in regulatory activity, increase of social benefits, decrease of taxes and financial aid to the businesses.

7.A3.6. Competition as backbone of the national eco­no­mic policy. /Sh. Gogiashvili/. Science and Life. - 2010 - ¹2. - pp. 10-15. - geo.; abs.: geo., rus., eng.

The necessity of government regulation of any economy arises from the economic requirements, and the market with its profit-oriented nature is truly powerless before these requirements. Only the scope and intensity of regulation can be disputable. The competition, being the backbone of a market economy and the basis of state economic policy, provides for its (economy) efficiency, human rights and personal rights. At the same time, the competition may not be maintained automatically and is ousted by monopolies if the state fails to take special measures in order to protect the competition.

Following the establishment of the industrial nucleus of globalized world economies, the geography of international investment flow is changed, because the character and role of foreign direct investment (FDI) changes according to regions and has its own specificity; accordingly, the latter determines the intensification level of the FDI’s flow. One of the main problems among the factors influencing the world investment flow is the possible crisis in world economics, which by its character and scale may be global, regional or local. The global economic crisis is extremely negative, directly hitting all the branches of the world economic and international financial and economic relations. The 2008 world economic crisis is the typical example. According to the estimation of the UNCT experts, multinational corporations expect to gradually increase their FDIs in 2010, reaching the level of 2008 in 2011. The leaders in future growth of FDI will be the USA, Brazil, India, China and Russia.

7.A3.10. The contemporary interpretation of intensification of production. /J. Bazhunaishvili/. Agrarian-Economic Science and Technologies. – 2010. – #4. – pp. 28-31. – geo.; abs.:geo.; eng.

In the article the author’s view of contemporary understanding of the intensification of agricultural production is highlighted. We consider that the essence of intensification is not in ‘inputs’, i.e. extra investments before production (extra investments) and not in ‘outputs’ upon completion of production, but in the change of functioning of the production system. We believe that intensification enhances the strain of functioning of the production system. Thus, the process of intensification of agricultural production is enhancing the strain of functioning of the production system by employing its potential thoroughly. In this explanation two types of this process are singled out. The first type is increasing the strain of production system trough using its potential or strength of separate resources. This type can be called a relative intensification. It is limited by the size of production potential and the resources of individual elements of production. The second type of intensification is connected with the increase of production potential. This type includes enhancing the strain of the production system functioning at the expense of its progressive structural and functional reorganization and development which is accompanied by improving the economic and production quality of the system on the basis of enhancing the production potential. This type can be called absolute intensification.

7.A3.11. The main principles of improvement of the investment environment in Georgia. /G. Dogonadze, J. Makharadze/. Agrarian-Economic Science and Technologies. – 2010. – #3. – pp. 64-71. – geo.; abs.:geo.; eng.

A growth in foreign direct investments has been noted in Georgia since 1996, although in 2008 the inflow of investments decreased by USD 450, 9 million as compared with 2007, the main reason of which are the 2008 August events. In the second and third quarters of 2009, a stable tendency for investment growth was noted. Analysis of different sectors of economy shows that agriculture is not attractive for foreign investments; for example, in 2007, a share of agriculture in foreign direct investments made 0.7%, and only 0.5% in 2008, amounting to USD 7.8 million, which shows the necessity for improvement of the investment environment in Georgia.

7.A3.13. Economic assessment of an aggregate according to its energy criteriua. /R. Makharoblidze, G. Chitaia/. Agrarian-Economic Science and Technologies. – 2010. – #2. – pp. 35-42. – geo.; abs.: geo.; eng.

The effectiveness of a technological process of agricultural crops growing and harvesting is estimated by the correlation of the cost of the yield with the cost of the work performed. The cost of the performed work and production expressed in monetary units is directly related to the market conjuncture and inflation indicator, which determines the efficiency value, which is different in each individual moment; therefore, its application in comparing general technologies and individual machine operations is less effective and may cause an estimation error. Therefore, when estimating technological processes, it is necessary to select an indicator which is constant and depends only on the technical and economic characteristics of the aggregate. Such indicator is the consumption of energy necessary for the process fulfillment per unit of cultivated area.

One of the key elements of a market economy is the knowledge of the main mechanisms of the income generation, its analysis and application of the modern methods in planning. One of the main mechanisms for realization of it is the financial leverage. The financial leverage foresees utilization of the fixed costs and is characterized by usage of loan capital by a corporation influencing the net profit ratio. The financial leverage is the objective factor, originated under the loan capital equal to the utilized assets that give the opportunity to generate additional income from own capital.

The process of effective sales management is the aim of economic innovations. For this reason, it is very useful to focus on innovations in the field of banking products, sales forms and methods. The main forms of sales are classified as static when the client is served in the office and the bank is selling traditional bank products, and as remote when clients are served through modern electronic facilities. A strategy allows the optimal use of sales planning and bank resources. It provides the better understanding of user expectations and market assessment. Clients feel that the bank is able to satisfy their diverse requirements. Hence, it is clear that customer's confidence in the bank shall be determined by a number of products purchased and general interest level of integration. Therefore, the banks that maintain relations with the client in the joint business framework receive the greatest benefit.

7.A3.20. Insurance market and insurance supervision in foreign countries. /N. Kakashvili/. Caucasus International University Herald. – 2010. - #2. – pp. 213-216. – geo.; abs.: geo, eng., rus.

The institutional model for the supervision of financial activities operates in Italy, Portugal, Greece, Slovenia, etc. The functional and mixed models are operating in the Netherlands, Luxemburg, Australia, etc. An integrated model works in the majority of states (Great Britain, Denmark, Belgium, Poland, Czech Republic, and Estonia). One of the preferences for the integrated approach is a high level of independence of the supervisory service. In most countries (e.g., Czech Republic, Bulgaria, etc.), the financial supervisory agencies are accountable to the Parliament (Assembly). In some countries, such as Belgium and Finland, the national government and central bank participate in staffing the management of supervisory agencies on a parity basis. Since December 2009, the NBG has been supervising insurance companies in Georgia.

7.A3.21. Credit risks management and assessment criteria. /N. Saralidze/. Caucasus International University Herald. – 2010. - #2. – pp. 222-226. – geo.; abs.: geo, eng., rus.

A credit risk is the most important banking risk, as the inappropriate assessment of the borrower leads to the origin of problematic debts and losses. The credit risk assessment is of a special importance and generally risk management systems are established and function at banks for this purpose. In making a credit risk management system, banks generally rely on own and foreign experience. For many decades, the European and US banks are actively using and developing the credit risk assessment approaches. Therefore, the implementation of a credit risk management system without studying and understanding the models developed in foreign countries would be unreasonable. The developed by the Basel Committee “Revised Scheme of Capital Calculation Approaches and International Standards” - Basel-II, is the basis for regulatory processes in European countries. The document contains all the findings of the new credit risk management, which allows for the establishment of an effective credit risk management system.

7.A3.23. Economic policy of Georgia determiner of national competitiveness. /G. Erkomaishvili/. Economics and Business. – 2010. - #6. – pp. 69-76. – eng.; abs.: geo.

Georgia must have priorities not only in traditional fields but also in high quality, high-tech and high productive spheres as well. Only in this way it will be possible to increase the competitive long-term, irreversible growth, boost revenues and salaries, and improve living conditions of the population. We may name, for example, manufacture of pharmaceutical products, telecommunication devices, gadgets and installments. The focus should be made on high-tech and valuable products. Lately, a demand for plant –based preparations has increased globally. Accordingly, demands for medicinal plants have also increased. Georgia can occupy a well-deserved place in this respect, provided there is the necessary support on the part of the State. The reasonable application of medicinal plants will facilitate the recreation of the state economy, boosting of export revenues, and creation of jobs and reduction of the number of population being on the verge of poverty. The state support should be reflected in the provision of an appropriate legal base and in the elaboration of a correct policy. The current state policy for tourism development should be directed to the maintenance in the sector of existing liberalization and facilitation of investments. The State ought to establish the favorable investment environment to attract both local and foreign investors. One of the priorities of Georgia is its transit function which, together with natural-climatic conditions, the intellectual potential, and other factors should ensure the business development in and enhance economic competitiveness in the country.

The signs of the global financial crisis have begun to occur in the world since the second half of 2007. The situation in Georgia was worsened by Russian military aggression. However, in autumn 2008, at a donor conference in Brussels an unprecedented decision was made to grant Georgia with 4.5 billion USD. The purpose of this solution was to mitigate the effects of the crisis and the war, but despite the financial assistance, in the wake of the crisis unemployment rate in the country has increased, there has been a decrease in foreign direct investment and real GDP (by 3.9%), Georgia’s foreign debt has almost doubled and reserves of the National Bank of Georgia have reduced. Unfortunately, in times of the crisis the government had no anti-crisis program, and the actions performed by the authority of the country were mostly spontaneous and mutually exclusive. For prevention of the crisis in future, it is important to study not only external but also local sources of the crisis.

In the presented article, intuitive skill is considered to be the greatest contemplative wisdom granted to the humans from the Almighty. The importance of such cognition is immeasurably great in human history. However, it is also natural that through time, priorities of investigating mysteries of natural phenomena have been settled upon achievements of intellectual or conceptual thinking. In conclusion, progress of the world civilization has been conditioned by the acknowledgement and development of causative relation between intuitive skill and intellectual thinking, which resulted in contemporary highly developed information society. The article provides substantiations about high importance of successive acknowledgement of the unity of intuitive skill and intellectual thinking for creation and implementation of proper integration economic policy. Integration value gained in this way is one of the central problems, which should attract the attention of distinguished scientists and politicians.

The setting up of an antimonopoly service will help to strengthen the Georgian economy, to eradicate tendencies of rise in prices that will be positively reflected on population, to control all profitable businesses in Georgia. Large companies artificially decrease prices in order to make small companies bankrupt and incorporate them. Following it, they start to offer their prices to customers and dictate their own rules that adversely affect every customer.

In low-profitable but important for the country sectors the benefits should be higher. The investment policy should also take into accounts the regional interests

The role of finance management and the importance of place in the business development are discussed in the article. The finance manager is the important figure in foreign developed countries and his/her knowledge and experience is the guarantee of success of any business. The production activity of any organization depends on the correct administration of finances, optimal and exact business plan, good choice of strategy and tactics which are the most important guarantee for business development. As business enterprises do not have a long-time history in Georgia, the experience of financial management is also imperfect, especially during inflation, change of currencies, etc.

In case of market relations, market demand for production and service and orientation on consumers have entirely changed approaches towards innovation. The article deals with the basic questions of innovation, classification of the milestones of innovation, and its links with competitiveness, marketing, the living cycle of production, on which the profit of firms is dependent. The work begins with the definition of innovation as the last phase of scientific–technical progress and with the approaches of the scientists who have played a great part in explaining the essence of innovation. As a result of different research carried out by many scientists and taking into consideration the world standards, innovation should be discussed as the last phase, the last milestone of scientific–technical progress, which has the practical usage in the production and/or service sector. The experience of developed countries shows that the process of innovative and marketing activity goes without interruption and in anticipation of the stages of a new product design, development, and perfection.

7.A3.36. Features of the modern economic crisis in Russia. /V. Papava, T. Tapladze/. Ekonomisti. – 2010. - #2. – pp. 5-9. – geo.; abs. eng.

The impact of the global financial crisis on Russia’s economy was already observable in the summer of 2008. With most of the necroeconomic enterprises being concentrated in the industry sector, it should not surprise us that the decrease herein is the most significant as a result of the economic crisis. The economic crisis which developed in Russia is not so much due to foreign factors but, rather, to the unsolved problems which have accumulated and which are characteristic for Russia’s industry and for the economy as a whole. The technological backwardness of Russia is a key factor due to which the share of energy resources in Russia’s export structure of industry is significant. In order to provide real support, the Government of Russia started to carry out measures characteristic for the process of zombieying the economy. As for the application of the Law on Bankruptcy in Russia, it is beneath criticism. It is apparent that the anti-crisis measures carried out by the Government of Russia facilitate the retaining the enterprises with obsolete technologies which can only negatively affect the economic development of Russia in the post-crisis period. The anti-crisis programme of the Government is directed towards a comprehensive zombieying of the Russia’s economy. Due to the large-scale of the necroeconomy in Russia, the zombieying process extends to the necroeconomic enterprises.

After the break-up of the Soviet Union, all the post-Soviet republics had to go through a serious financial and economic crisis which was raging for several years. Hyperinflation processes destroyed all the deposits in the state commercial banks that had been collected by several generations. As a result, 90% of the population grew poor. Against the background of activities for overcoming the 2008/2009 World Economic Crisis, the only effective and tested way was to help the population to overcome the crisis by support by the State through establishing corresponding funds. Therefore, in order to finally do away with the outcomes of the economic crisis it is necessary that a national compensation fund be set up, whose accumulated sums would be paid out to the damaged depositors as indemnity.

The changes taken place in the 90s of the 20th century in Georgia significantly exacerbated social risks existing in society. Under conditions of their disregard by the State, the degree of risks tends to increase. At the present stage, the following social risks can be ascribed as the principal ones: a reduction in the population size (demographic demise); the acceleration of the rates of demographic aging and the sharp growth of the size of population above 65; the worsening of population’s health condition and the lack of an effective system for financing public health service; a restricted access to quality education; the growth of unemployment and low wages; the worsening of living standards; an increase in the population’s property differentiation (polarization) and antagonization of the public social structure; the indefensibility of labour rights and discrimination of employees; the lack of an effective system provision of pensions and social welfare; a tendency for devaluation of national and moral values (the spiritual and moral crisis. The above-mentioned risks and challenges necessitate a timely reaction from the public and the authorities. First of all, it is necessary to really assess the risks and look into the reasons that cause dangers. Following from the specificities of separate problems, the State can use different strategies, but any model of strategies should serve to eradicate or moderate the reasons that generate risks. Failing this, the effect will be temporal and the risks will continue to exist.

Therefore, the management of risks has become very important and a special dis­cipline "risk management" has been established. Risk management includes balanced, consecutive actions to display, measure and ma­na­ge events which cause losses and financial difficulties. The effective procedure for risk ma­na­gement enables the leadership of a company to forecast risks and make reasonable decisions for managing them. "Risk management" is connected to such concepts as restraint and danger. By knowing risk management, we not only avoid a danger but really improve our lives. Only effective risk ma­­nagement will help.

There is a view on inevitability of uniting science, education and scientific-technological progress (STP) in knowledge economy. But there is also one notice: further development of STP in Georgia is now impossible due to the lack of needed funds. Since the 21st century science is partly united with education in post-soviet Georgia. In 1995-2005 the portion of humanitarian scientists in the structure of all Georgian scientists exceeded the share of scientists in the technical field. The number of scientific workers has declined dramatically in recent years. As revealing potential in this field has become increasingly difficult and fewer funds are assigned by the State, we are facing a massive brain-drain. Other problems to mention are the closure of many educational institutions, low salaries, etc. Secondary and higher educational institutions are characterized. For comparison, deep differentiation of the American educational system is given. One of the requisites for high educational level in Georgia is the provision of right personnel at both the management and pedagogic levels. The main aim is to approach international standards. Georgian entrepreneurs have no funds for financing scientific researches. The formation of a self-organizing economic system for science and education is seen as a hope for brighter future. This therefore is connected with the STP, the regulator of which is science-based economy.

The article proposes alternative views of the author concerning scientific competition. In particular: the scientific competition should be as much public as possible; only patentable components of a project proposal should be accepted. The main characters of a competition are the author, the opponent and the arbitrator. Remuneration of their works should be through salaries, grants, fees and awards according to their contribution to the competition. Science does not produce on masse, marketable goods. Scientific competition is the arena of a single combat of hypotheses for solving the yet unsolved problems. The expert arbitrator is the necessary person in production but in science it can be only a passive adviser.

There are known several types of pedagogical relations, but only three ones are outlined by Georgian scientists: democratic (co-operative), authoritarian (imperative), and liberal. Two sharply different styles – the democratic and the authoritarian are considered by the scholars as the most effective ones. The style of liberal relations is less used, for it is considered harmful to pedagogical activities. Certain obstacles are often found in pedagogical relations, such, for example, as the psychological and communicative aspects. The means of pedagogical relations are divided into two groups – the verbal (lexical) and nonverbal (gesture, facial expression, etc).

The positive and negative characteristics of the knowledge classification types - ‘fundamental knowledge maintenance’ and ‘innovative knowledge’ are considered. The first type of knowledge is characterized as enabling a person ‘to take part in a game’ and ensuring significant competitiveness of a company, on the one hand, as well as creating a significant barrier to the development in the company at the same level or the same knowledge degree, on the other hand. The second knowledge classification type, in contrast to the first type, enables companies to change "the game rules" and attain leadership in their sphere of activities. The innovative knowledge realization is said to be impossible without the fundamental knowledge maintenance in the specific branch. The above requires that the knowledge classification types be practically introduced in companies for handling the arising problems and attainment of necessary competitiveness and leadership.

Educational management has to be centrally concerned with the purpose or aims of education. These purposes or goals provide the crucial sense of direction to underpin the management of educational institutions. Unless this link between purpose and management is clear and close, there is a danger of “managerialism - a stress on procedures at the expense of educational purpose and values”. “Management possesses no super-ordinate goals or values of its own. The pursuit of efficiency may be the mission statement of management – but this is efficiency in the achievement of objectives which others define”.

New formula characterizing the radiation pattern of the dipole is concluded; so-called com­pa­tibility function (CF) is introduced, while its analysis provides rather satisfactory characterizing and description of EMC and NI of the dipole. Great number of numerous data is presented, proving the effectiveness of suggested method of estimation and improvement of EMC of the dipole.

The article presents in measurable functions the results obtained by heuristic research of psychic processes and their analysis. In the case of time deficit while revealing perceived information, the stream of consciousness receives a wave-corpuscle image, meaning that the process is a quantum phenomenon. The analysis shows us a mutually filling process of conscious and unconscious processes, also the mutual twist - rotation towards each other. In nature, everything which is formed by rotation creates a statistical torsion field. The process quanta are elementary particles which are transmitters of information. The unconscious serves as vacuum before becoming conscious in the psyche. Thus, there appear the two simplest notions: a torsion field and vacuum. The vacuum is a potential state of all kinds. If we follow this logic for quantum processes, there will be as well an independent parameter - spin. The quantum analogue of the parameter spin is an angular rotation momentum which gives birth to its field, called as a torsion field. The torsion fields will be created only in the objects having the spin, and this is a bio-field.

The same flow is shown to be the basis for making a paradoxical thermal engine and it is grounded that the basic obstacle for realization of a perpetuum mobile of the second kind is the physical resistance of real bodies rather than the temperature equilibrium of the environment.

Proceedings of the Georgian National Academy of Sciences. – Chemical Series. – 2009. – vol. 35. – #4. – pp. 484-487. – rus.; abs.: geo., eng.

It is shown that such impurities as, for example, In and Cr essentially influence the elastic properties, width of the forbidden gap and concentration of the current carriers in IV-VI semiconductors' layers. A degree of such influence depends on a mismatch of a layer with a substrate and its orientation. The conditions corresponding to "negative" pressures, at which the width of the forbidden gap increases, and stabilized Fermi level connected with an impurity in its depth, are realized. For the first time, the algorithm for calculation of the energy position of an impurity level is developed for the strained semiconductor. It is also shown that the concentration of current carriers under such conditions is considerably lower and it is connected with the change of the energy spectrum of the current carriers rather than with compensation.

Wc-NiAl powder mixtures were formed into cylindrical rods and tubes using a hot explosive consolidation process. Hot explosive consolidation was also applied to form WC-NiAl coatings on cylindrical steel surfaces as well. The WC-NiAl composite consisted of WC particles dispersed in a Ni-Al matrix, made from a Ni-clad Al precursor powder, wherein each Al particle is coated by a Ni layer. The consolidation temperature was varied from room temperature to 800°C; the shock loading intensity was as high as 10 GPa. The investigation showed that the combination of high temperatures and explosive compression was beneficial to the consolidation of the WC-NiAl composites, resulting in near theoretical densities, high hardness values, and the formation of transient layer between the sample and the steel container’s wall. The structure and property of the samples obtained, and the formation of the transient layer depended on the shock loading conditions and the phase content of precursor powders. The above mentioned as well as other features of the structure/property relationship of the consolidated WC-NiAl samples as a function of the loading conditions (experimental set-up, intensity of loading, or preloading temperature) are discussed.

The article deals with the technology of obtaining of GVD images of a honeybee without premedication developed by using Prof. Korotkov’s GDV technique (St. Petersburg, Russia), as well as with the GDV imaging of honey and distilled water droplets with the original technology. As a result, 3 groups were identified: 1. alive honeybees; 2. dead honey-covered honeybees; 3. Dead honeybees washed out by distilled water. After 48 hours of GDV imaging, the total lethality of the honeybees was observed. No streamer was detected between the test subjects and the honey droplets. It is obvious that honey serves as a protector against static electrical discharge. The anti-streamer effect of honey is lost after the honey is removed by the distilled water. At this time, a difference between both the alive and dead washed as well as between the honey-covered and washed honeybees is detected. Because of this, there were not detected statistically significant differences between GDV-images of the 1st and 2nd groups. We found statistically significant differences between the 1st and 3rd groups by the CF parameter and between the 2nd and 3rd groups by the M and CF parameters (fractal parameters). Conclusion: early postmortal changes of honeybees during GDV are expressed in changing of fractality of GDV images.

During a hypoxic state, including during a period of hemorrhagic shock, lyses of the liver parenchymal cell membranes occurs due to calcium ion excess. The membrane protection from such a pathologic process is theoretically possible by the calcium-channel blocking agent – Verapamil, which was used to study its hepatoprotective effect. Modelling of the hemorrhagic shock was performed by the method of Wiggers-Feine. Blood was exfused from sedated male cats (Nembutal 40mg/kg, intravenous blood exfusion 40ml/kg) till arterial blood flow drop to 40 mm/Hg (HS60). During artificial ventilation - 130-150 ml/min/kg in the period of 1 hour, pH in the arterial blood was 7,35-7,45, PO2 – 90mm/Hg, airflow measurement was controlled by “Corning “device. Resting of the animal was performed by blood exfusion. On 80-90 minutes after the blood exfusion liver edge were taken and rinsed with 2% osmium acid and 0,1mol phosphatic buffer and glutar aldehide. Contrasting was carried out by uranil acetate. Extracted material was examined by electronic microscope JEM-100B (Japan). 2 series of experiments were done on male cats – hemorrhagic shock model (n=5. 10 animals in total) and throughout the effect of verapamil (dose 0,250mg/kg i/v), which together with the physiologic solution did not exceeded 1/20 of the exfusion volume. As a result of experimental data, it is clear that in Hemorrhagic shock model, Calcium L channel blocker – verapamil is characterized by slightly expressed hepatoprotective effect on the 80-th min of the blood exfusion.

Separate geographic forms of sea buckthorn (Hippophae rhamnoides L.) are characterized not only by different composition of triacylglycerols (TAGs) of their fruit mesocarp oil, but also by a different biosynthetic pattern of the TAGs. Siberian, Central Asian, and Baltic forms contain TAGs, which include mostly hexadecenoic (C16:1) and palmitic (C16:0) fatty acid (FA) residues and are synthesized according to the theory of 1,3-Random, 2-Random Distribution of FAs between the respective OH groups of glycerol. At the same time, the mechanism of formation of TAGs of the Caucasian form rich in the residues of C16:0 and octadecenoic acid (C18:1) is in accordance with the theory of Restricted Random Distribution of FAs. The occurrence of two different patterns of TAG biosynthesis in the mesocarp of the same biological object is demonstrated here for the first time. As for seed oils, the geographic forms studied here virtually do not differ from each other in the FA composition of their TAGs.

7.B2.10. Molecular mechanism for the phylogenetic change of thermostability of fibril-forming collagen. evidence that (Gly-X-Hyp) triplets are main factors determining stability of collagen. /T. Burjanadze, E. Kiziria, S. Mikeladze/. Bulletin of the Georgian National Academy of Science. – 2010. – vol. 4. - #1. – pp.137-141. – eng.; abs.: geo., eng.

Published data relating the concentration of 4-hydroxyproline residues to the stability of collagen was used to estimate the different effects of two types of triplets: (Gly-X-Hyp) and (Gly-Pro-Hyp). The data comprised mainly fibril-forming collagens, which exhibit highly cooperative helix-coil transitions at temperatures that are remarkably close to body temperature. A wide range of denaturation temperatures was therefore ensured by including collagen from different species of fish, including some living in the arctic, amphibians and mammals. As a first approximation, the dependence of the denaturation temperature, Td, of collagen on hydroxyproline content was considered as a linear function: Td= T0 + K1N(GXO) + K2N(GPO), where the coefficients K1 and K2 characterize the degree of influence of the two types of triplet. Regression analyses showed that K1 exceeded K2 by about 10 times. Analysis of the dependence of the enthalpy of denaturation on hydroxyproline content also showed that triplets of the type (Gly-X-Hyp) containing water had a larger effect than (Gly-Pro-Hyp) triplets and that the primary factor determining increased stability was the concentration of (Gly-XHyp) triplets, while (Gly-Pro-Hyp) triplets governed the nonlinear character of the relationship. We conclude that the main factor stabilizing the collagen triple helix and governing the phylogenetic change of collagen thermostability is the concentration of triplets of the type (Gly-X-Hyp).

The diffraction grating is more and more applicable in studying the light spectrum. This is because of its advantage (benefit) comparative with other devices with the same functions. The grating not only effectively decomposes the light on it, but also changes some light properties. For example, if the light waves train with the given wave length that falls on the diffraction grating contains the equal amplitude of n number absolute waving (n impulse), with the diffraction grating influence the mentioned waves train’s length will become n+N-1, where N is the number of transparent splits of diffraction grating. The influence of diffraction grating make the amplitudes of waves train’s impulses change. The influence of grating make the waves train’s amplitudes grow during the waves of N number. Then the waving amplitudes are equal, as to the last waving, it happens with the reduced amplitudes. The amplitudes change step by step.1

Some questions on the classification of synthetic diamonds with electric flotation have been considered. Based on an analysis of the processes defining the hardness and the strength of solid bodies, it has been established that the resistance of diamonds must be characterized by their hardness. Proceeding from the complex structure of the electronic double layer in interphase of solid phase (diamond) and liquid phase (electrolyte) and the mobility of the diffusion layer, the advisability of the electrokinetic potential determination for analysis of electrolytic flotation is stressed. The determination results evidence a direct dependence of the electrokinetic potential on electrolyte concentrations and size of particles of synthetic diamond powder.

A miticidal ointment preparation of prolonged action has been developed where the synthetic pyrethroid - cypermetrine is used as the main active substance, while the montmorollonite Askana clay (enriched form) and natural carbohydrates (mineral oil, Vaseline) are used as ingredients. The ointment activity was tested on three adult dogs and five puppies infested with the Rhipicephalis sanguineus species mites. The results of the carried out experiments proved that in 10 minutes after treatment of the animal skin with the preparation the semi-hungry and hungry imagos were paralyzed and died within 24 hours. The satiated female mites were paralyzed in 10-20 minutes after contamination, the paralyzed and dead mites falling from the skin after 35-40 hours. None of the female imagos collected from the treated skin revealed the egg-laying ability. Their death was fixed after 4-5 days.

Titan carbide-based nano-crystalline solid solutions TiC + Ni (10 %) have been obtained by the chemical synthesis method in reaction between titanium hydride compounds and carbide-forming and binding components. Nickel has been chosen as the binding metal. A theoretical thermodynamic analysis performed for the ternary system (Ti − C) − Ni (10 %) has shown that TiC and TiNi compounds are able to be formed within the wide interval of concentrations, (28 − 48) wt. %. For obtaining of the TiC + Ni (10 %) nano-crystalline powders titanium hydride, nickel chloride and soot were used as starting materials in charges in molar ratios as Òi : C : Ni = 1 : 1 : 0.1. The obtained product TiC + Ni was a black agglomerated nano-crystalline powder. Further, the produced powders were compacted in two stages, applying a specially designed spark-plasma-synthesis plant. The full-stroke compacting of powders takes (3 − 4) min. The proposed method of synthesis allows retaining nano-crystalline structure even in compacted samples and goods.

The influence of deleterious UV radiation on collagen molecules in the absence and presence of ascorbic acid using UV−Vis and FT−IR spectroscopy has been studied. Intensity of UV−Vis absorption spectrum of collagen with a maximum at 275 nm due to the aromatic residues (tyrosine and phenylalanine) increases with the increasing dose of UV radiation. This effect is significantly hindered in the presence of antioxidant ascorbic acid. Intensities of FT-IR bands (amide A, B, I and II) of collagen decrease with the increase of the UV radiation dosage. Intensities of bands are also decreased in the presence of ascorbic acid. Results suggest that increasing the concentration of ascorbic acid increases the photo-stability of collagen, and the collagen becomes less sensitive to UV radiation. It is possible that hydrogen bonds form between the groups N − H of collagen and C = O of ascorbic acid. It is believed that under UV radiation free radicals appear in acid soluble collagen and resulting in photo-degradation of the macromolecule restore due to the ability of ascorbic acid donating one or two electrons. Increasing the dose of radiation causes more molecules of ascorbic acid to slow down, and their antioxidant effect is diminished accordingly.

Alterations of the average-annual temperature of the Earth are shown to be characterized by relaxation oscillations within every 5-8 years. More low-frequency oscillations with a period of about 60 years are also observed. The relaxation processes are connected with changes in the Earth’s albedo, quantity of the evaporated water and the absorption of the solar radiation by green plants. Cycles of solar and human activity also influence the processes of temperature relaxation. The relaxation oscillations are caused by a negative feedback between parameters of the Earth and energy received by the Earth from the Sun.

We investigated dynamics of acoustic wave generation during stick-slip motion of sample rocks. For that, laboratory spring-slider system has been developed enabling registration of acoustic waves generated by stick-slip (SS) at different sliding regimes and relative external forcing. To create these time series, experimental recordings were conditioned, wave trains separated and onsets of the acoustic emission (AE) detected. For quantitative evaluation of changes in dynamics of acoustic wave generation, nonlinear recurrence quantitative analysis (RQA) and Tsallis entropy calculation method have been used. It was shown that the amount of deterministic structure in dynamics of acoustic wave temporal distribution depends on movement regime.

A possible model for formation of the Madneuli copper-gold deposit incorporates a sequence of magmatic, tectonic and hydrothermal events occurring contemporaneously with sedimentation of host volcanosedimentary rocks in a shallow paleosea basin. Identification in these rocks of some biostratigraphic units (CC 20 Zone and CC 22c Subzone) of fossil nannoplanktons enabled the authors to conclude that formation of the Madneuli deposit occurred in Campanian age. Furthermore, dating of the major part of the geological events, proposed by the model, is narrowed down to a short time span of CC 22c nannoplankton Subzone of the Campanian stage. This age is consistent with earlier geochronological findings.

The work concludes that within the Samtskhe-Javakheti lava plateau along the axial zones of buried paleo-valleys quite well-marked underground reservoirs are distinguished, the underground water resources of which provide stability and regulation of minimum flow of rivers. At the same time, the period of full water cycle of underground waters in the reservoirs is about seven years, which mainly depends on the reservoir capacity. The bulk of the underground water resources of the underground reservoirs have no genetic connection with the underground waters formed during high waters of the rivers floods, rain or snow thaw, for this part of underground water is a mixture (cocktail) of waters formed during the previous years. This is proved by too low value of variation of coefficients of average annual discharge of rivers of the region.

The paper describes the existing conditions of erosive slopes on the highways of Georgia and measures for their protection. The survey sections were not considered as subject to bioengineering measures and, the survey revealed the dynamics of their impairment with time. The damaged sections were covered with a layer of reinforced concrete using the method of filling. The implemented measures revealed that the above-mentioned method can be used to suspend erosive processes because of its efficiency, tech­no­logical simplicity and availability. The method can be considered as one of the erosion preventive meas­ures for the conditions of Georgia.

The folded zone of Greater Caucasus includes hydrogeological regions of special types, in which, on the bases of their geological structure and collector features of water-bearing strata, distinguished are: platform, intermontane, slope and medial artesian basins (porous, fissure-porous and fissure-carstic ground waters), hydrogeological massifs, admassifs and intermassifs (fissure, fissure-vein, fissure-bedded, bedded-fissure and fissure-carstic ground waters) and volcanogenic basins (porous-fissure covers of ground waters). According to recent principles of hydrogeological zoning and considering variegated geological and hydro­geological structure of the Folded zone of Greater Caucasus, there are segregated hydrogeological regions of first, second and third order. By difficulty of spreading and chemical compound of ground water, there is conditioned allocation of À, B, C and D hydrogeochemical zones and sub zones: B3, B10, B35, C70, C40, and C270, C350 for artesian pools and D1, D3, D10, D35 for hydrogeological massifs, admassifs and intermassifs. According to lateral and vertical spreading of ground water, there are determined main characte­ristics of the Caucasus hydrogeochemical zonality. The results of performed investigations are given on the “Schematic map of Caucasus hydrogeological zoning and hydrogeochemical zoning” compiled by the authors.

Agrolandscape study has quite a long history in Georgia, as the natural resource potential of the country and agro-resource potential greatly depends on it. A scientific research aimed at implementing the program of drainage of highly humid and swamp soils of Kolkheti and their agricultural utilization was carried out. A complex analysis of the natural resources of Western Georgia was carried out by modern methods of research. In view of the average indices of hydrothermal coefficient, the study has revealed the space distribution peculiarities of agrolandscapes. All the modifications of the Western Georgian agrolandscapes have been researched and a new model of their territorial organization has been elaborated. This model enables us to reveal the natural resource potential of the region, structural stability of agrosystems and to find optimal ways for improving the ecological situation.

Based on the current demand for and consumption of energy resources, their natural reserves are faced with almost complete exhaustion in the second half of the 21st century. Accordingly, it is necessary that alternative energy resources be searched for. Given a rich hydro-resource potential of Georgia, the authorities have decided to build new HPPs. Seven of them are being built by a Turkish company. The construction of Khudoni HPP is also planned. However, all the above is not enough to resolve such a problem as high electricity fees. Georgia has also a good potential of solar and wind energy as well as thermal waters, the potential of which has not been used up to now.

According to annual electricity consumption per capita (1.6 thousand kWt/hour/man), Georgia significantly lags behind both the developed countries (11-37) and the former USSR republics (1.7 – 6.3), this being indicative of a low level of Georgian economy and of a decreased electricity consumption. The low consumption rather than energy abundance is the main reason explaining the potential of its exporting. There several local sources for making up the energy shortage, including: new 300MW power units in Gardabani TPP, installing gas turbine equipment to the existing boiler houses of TPPs, building seasonal HPPs, completion of Khudoni HPP, building nuclear power plants, usage of nontraditional, renewable sources of energy, building of a coal-fired TPP in Georgia. As a result of the analyses, it is obvious that from the point of economic and technical trustworthiness, the generation of power from local sources, from Tkibuli coal has the best advantage. This will not only secure power safety of the country but also bring USD 120-140 million profit annually.

7.C2.3 Spin transport properties of manganese doped nanostructured magnetic semiconductors. /P. Kervalishvili/. Nano Studies. - 2010 - ¹2. - pp. 5‑14. - eng..; abs.: geo., eng.

A technology of periodic layer GaSb / Mn nanostructure getting, the structural and magneto-transport properties of thin GaMnSb films with increased content of Mn, up to 10 at. %, grown by using laser dispersion in vacuum was studied. The structures of GaMnSb layers, regardless of Ga replacement by Mn acceptors, contain ferromagnetic MnSb nanoclusters and shallow acceptor defects controlled by the growth temperature were investigated. In the obtained double phase ferromagnetic GaMnSb films, regardless of the case of previously studied single phase GaMnSb systems (Curie temperatures not exceeding 30 K), the anomalous Hall effect (AHE) and the AHE hysteresis at temperatures up to 300 K, becoming stronger with the hole concentration increase, are observed. The unusual properties of GaMnSb films have been interpreted as interaction of magnetic nanoclusters in a semiconductor matrix, where the matrix has huge concentration of free holes and magnetic ions, becoming stronger with an increase in the holes concentration. The magnetotransport properties of GaSb/Mn discrete alloys to be used as ferromagnetic contacts in the process of formation of GaMnSb / GaSb / GaMnSb and GaMnSb / GaAs / GaMnSb three-layered structures for observation of spin polarized current in perpendicular geometry were studied. The model problem concerning the formation of a ferromagnetic cluster (magnetic polaron) consisting of a free electron bound to a non-magnetic donor impurity in an anti-ferromagnetic matrix was analyzed. The magnetic polaron was shown to also produce rather long-range extended spin distortions of the anti-ferromagnetic background around the core. Such a magnetic polaron state can be favorable in energy, in comparison to the usually considered one. Studies of the structure of magnetic poltroons (nanoscale ferromagnetic droplets) in magnetic semiconductors were performed with a special emphasis on frustrated lattices’ (square lattice with nearest-neighbor and diagonal interactions and the triangular lattice) characteristic for layered heterostructures. It was demonstrated that the magnetic polaron can produce rather extended spin distortions of the anti-ferromagnetic background around its ferromagnetic core. The characteristic size of this ‘coat’ decreases for a stronger next-nearest neighbor interaction or with an increase in magnetic anisotropy.

The work deals with the possibilities of obtaining fine-crystalline materials by applying two-stage integrated technological schemes: self-propagating high-temperature synthesis (SHS)+super-rate tempering of the liquid melt and SHS+gas-flame dispersion. As a result of spinning of the SHS-melt on a fast-rotating copper drum, a quenching product of a lamellar shape is obtained. The thickness of foil fragments is 30-60 mm. The electron-microscopic investigations showed that the dimensions of phase constituents of the composite Al2O3-NiAl (Ni3Al) varied from nano- to micrometric dimensions. At the same time, there was observed a heterogeneous distribution of Al2O3 and NiAl on the area of the direction of melt spinning, which pointed to heterogeneity and non-stationary flow of high-temperature melt. For increasing the ductility of microparticles, it is necessary to clad the surfaces of powders or granulate them, as well as to select relevant methodology of disintegration for providing the shape of particles maximally approximated to the isometric one.

In the present work, the results of experimental investigations of contact fatigue and wear of deformable high-strength aluminum cast iron of ADI (DADI) class depending on the phase ratio in the metallic matrix are given. It is shown that the modification of cast iron melt with the magnesium vapor allows obtaining the low-silica (0.5-0.7% Si) high-strength cast iron in which the concentration of sulfur does not exceed 0.002%. Besides, the type and the degree of austenite transformation of the produced cast iron can easily be varied so that the required ratio of phase components such as upper bainite, lower bainite, martensite, carbide and retained austenite could be provided in the metallic matrix and hence could be achieved the desired hardness over the range of 30-57HRC. The rolling and rolling-with-creep wear tests were carried out on the specimens of different hardness. They showed strong dependence of the contact fatigue and the wear on the amount of retained austenite in the specimens with the optimal ratio of bainite and martensite phase components in the matrix structure. The obtained testing results allow us to treat the high-strength aluminum cast iron of DADI class as an efficient substitute for expensive steel in manufacturing the critical parts for high-pressure multistep gas pumping compressors.

The development of fuel and energy sector of Georgia in a market economy requires new approaches to solving the coal industry problems in terms of their market competitiveness. The approach to the evaluation of coal geological structures in terms of technological improvement of mining of their reserves by underground methods has been presented. It was found that Tkibuli-Shaori coal-producing region is characterized by very complex mining and geological conditions, comparable to the conditions of the complex deposits and basins of the leading coal-producing countries. The coefficient of the integral evaluation of manufacturability of the mining-geological conditions of the Shaori carboniferous area is almost four times less than that of the Ruhr, three times less than of the Donetsk and 35% less than that of Karaganda basin. The analysis allows using the best practices of Ruhr and other coal basins with highly complicated mining and geological conditions in the restructuring of the mines in the Shaori carboniferous area characterized by high levels of manufacturing concentration, the multiple growth of load on working face, safety and productivity.

The basic principle of restructuring of the coal industry, the practical realization of which is to transform the coal industry in a profitable one, provides for a sharp increase in the intensification and concentration of mining activities at the expense of creating necessary conditions for applying mechanical work and new technologies in mines. It is established that the coefficient of integral evaluation of adaptability of geological conditions of the Shaori coalfield is of almost two times less than that of Donetsk, 1.7-times less than that of Ruhr and 35% less than in Karaganda basin. A method of opening the balance reserves of Tkibuli-Shaori field by one slope with division of a minefield into blocks instead of four mines is proposed. Using this method will allow increasing productivity by 10-40%, reducing the length of supported roadways by 50%, the length of the path of fresh air ventilation - by 20%, the share of development workings - by 20% on the 1000 tons of production, and greatly simplifying the operation of underground transport.

It has been established that in the case when coal-bearing rocks are represented by bentonite clays, coal undergoes significant alterations, for the bentonite clays, as a strong adsorbent, adsorb from the coal under conditions of natural humidity a part of organics (humic acids, gums, and other moving composite substances) thus depleting the coal, increasing its ash content, and accordingly decreasing its calorific capacity. In the given case, it is expedient to exploit the coal and “black” or organics-saturated rocks selectively. It has also been established that the organic-saturated “black” bentonite is an excellent organic and mineral fertilizer. At the same time, in the case of coal briquetting, it may be used as a bonding material for metallurgy.

Electroless metallization technology which allowed replacing adequately Au and Ag with Ni − P or Ni − B alloys and simplifying significantly the metallization process was developed. The proposed patentable nanomethods for the first time allow one to produce nanochips and photomasks with nano-sized adjacent elements by single optical UV photolithography. The proposed nanomethods are much more advantageous and simpler than other expensive and complicated methods such as e-beam, X-ray lithography or fabrication of nanoelements using light-phase-shift photomasks. The proposed methods of metallization are widely used in electronics, piezoengineering and instrument-making. As a result Au, Ag and Pd were replaced with the alloys of non-precious metals; usage of toxic substances was eliminated.

It is shown that the process flowsheets used on Tkibuli-Shaori coalfield for drilling-in, preparation and mining of coal seams do not correspond to local mining and geological conditions. They are complicating and increasing the cost of operating fields, have contributed to the misconception about the alleged over-complexity of the geological conditions of the deposit. The length of extraction columns is less than 200 m, while that of the story - 35-40 m. In the case of a transfer of mines to the mechanized method of coal mining, the development of these extraction pillars will require no more than 10 days. The main time will be spent on auxiliary operations. The ratio of computer time will be so small that if you use a mechanical complex, the cost of coal will increase rather than decrease. A concept based on the intensive model of Tkibuli-Shaori deposit development has been worked out, where, in accordance with the mining and geological conditions, the issues of the effective support to the mechanized complex have been resolved, this being a main condition for increasing the concentration and intensification of mining operations, raising performance and reducing the cost of coal mining

The transfer of mineral resources into a category of reserves (in the availability of sufficient data of geological prospecting) is possible only in the case when its quantity and quality meet the requirements of economic efficiency of mining, and is sufficient for payback of capital investments and gaining planned income. Therefore, the determination of the minimum reserves meeting the requirements of economic efficiency of their mining is rather urgent. At the same time, the existing methods of calculations are rather laborious and imperfect. In this article, we presented the technique of a calculation of the minimum volume of reserves for an estimation of technical and economic efficiency of the deposit mining.

Laboratory tests on decorative stone specimens produced by blasting block by means of explosive cord have been conducted. During testing, the following indirect methods for estimation of the stone structure were used: the definition of the propagation velocity of ultrasonic vibrations, the ultimate strength under compression and tension, as well as salt resistance of the specimens, taken at different distances from the plane of the split. An analysis of the data revealed that the width of the structural changes of stone, adjacent to the plane of the split, is 15-35 mm. Multiplicity of explosive loading of the same block does not lead to a decrease in slab output if the current value of the resistance index of rocks by the proposed method exceeds 75% of its nominal value. The ways to reduce the intensity of explosive loading at separation of blocks from the rock mass, ensuring preservation of the natural structure of stone in products, are recommended.

A technology of artificial drying of hips, including preparation of hips for drying, drying, inspection, sorting out and packing of dried fruits has been developed. In order to determine the optimal mode of drying of hips, the effect of the heat-carrying agent’s temperature, speed of movement and the specific load of the dryer on drying kinetics and the quality of the ready products were studied. A long keeping of hips in the drier at 80-100° temperature adversely affects their chemical and organoleptic characteristics, which is conditioned by redox ferment reactions ongoing in crude fruits under condition of high initial humidity of fruits (60-66%). Because of the above, a 5-stage drying mode on five-band conveyer drying device was chosen, with a gradual reduction of the heat carrying agent’s temperature from 80-85° (the first stage, the first conveyer) to 30-40° (the fifth stage, the fifth conveyer). Such temperature mode provides for reduction of humidity of hips from 60-66% (the first stage) to 10-15% (the fifth stage). The results of testing were processed by generation of drying-temperature curves, the latter making possible to establish optimal parameters of the five-stage mode of drying of hips according to the stages.

A relation between the content of calcium in apples and their dynamic diseases is discussed. Two apple cultivars, Liberty and Golden Smooth, were studied. In the Liberty apples, the tissue around the pericarp is susceptible to browning during storage, whereas the Golden Smooth cultivar is not damaged by dynamic diseases during storage. The content of calcium was high in both cultivars: 9.0-13.8 mg/100g in the Golden Smooth apples and 8.4-11.6 mg/100g in the Liberty apples. In the Liberty apples, the tissue around the pericarp turned brown after storage for 1-1.5 months, when the content of Ca was less than 9.0 mg/100g and after storage for 3-4 months, when the content of calcium was more than 9.0 mg/100g. The quantity of titratable acidity decreased in both cases. It is shown that the development of disease and hence the storage life of apples can be predicted by the content of calcium and the cultivar properties. The role of calcium in the development of dynamic diseases is not confined to its quantitative parameter; no less important is its stabilization in the protopectin molecule and the percentage of calcium compounds. In the apples of Liberty cultivar, the process of ripening proceeds quite intensely. After releasing calcium, the wall of the cell is damaged, and the conditions for development of the disease are formed.

Beewolves (genus Philanthus), also known as bee-hunters, are burrowing wasps, most of each prey on bees. The predatory wasps attack foraging bees and beehive bees and kill them. A habitat of the philant is areas of big apiaries, where it quickly propagates and harms beekeeping. On an apiary of the Research Institute of Beekeeping, in Okrokana, Tbilisi, for the first time in Georgia the insect’s behavior was observed and studies because the current year’s dry and hot weather conditions contributed to the propagation of this predatory wasp. To fight philants is rather difficult as they use to dig tunnels in the ground for nesting.

The resource degradation of ponds and reservoirs is caused by anthropogenic and natural eutrophication, which causes the loss of biogenic elements from the reservoirs. The initial biogenetic reproduction starts to exceed destructive processes; as a result, aerobic processes replace the anaerobic ones, the hygiene and drinking water quality, as well as sanitary and recreation conditions of pond deteriorate. The paper describes the factors causing the eutrophication of ponds and reservoirs and the assess­ment indices, as well as a mathemati­cal model developed to forecast eutrophication processes in reservoirs, which depends on the population dy­namics of phytoplankton in a reservoir. The theoreti­cal model is based on the examples of some ponds and reservoirs. Some practical results are also given.

The article aims at analyzing the available service quality ebaluation methods in the sphere of tourism, based on the works by well-known foreign researchers. A popular service quality evaluation model is the so-called SERVQUAL developed by Parasuraman, Zeithaml, and Berry in 1982. The following five key dimensions were qualified to measure the service quality in tourism: reliability, assurance, tangibles, empathy, and responsiveness. The model is qualified a useful instrument to identify the gaps between customers’ expectations and customers’ perceptions of the services. The model contains 22 items for assessing customer perceptions and expectations regarding the quality of service. A level of agreement or disagreement with a given item is rated on a seven point Likert-type scale. The SERVQUAL model has been extensively used in service sectors of many countries. Consumer satisfaction is a holistic dimension and result of service quality in tourism. Quality and consumers satisfaction measurement will give the possibility to identify the demands of different segments of potential consumers. It is very important to integrate the methods of measurement of service quality in practice for developing tourism marketing in Georgia. It should be provided consumer oriented researches of tourism market not only in terms of scientific , but for wide promoting Georgian tourist product in the domestic and global markets.

The ropeway haul rope’s longitudinal oscillation parameters are calculated based on the fact that the rope is an equivalent spring with a weight suspended thereon. The main allowance consists in the fact that the vibration at the point of weight suspension rather than of the whole rope is discussed. The rope rigidity and bringing mass coefficient calculating formulas are given; oscillation frequency calculating formula is deduced. The rope oscillation parameters’ dependence on span length, rope load and its location in the span, span chord slope angle, etc. are analyzed. The sphere of application of results is reversible aerial ropeways and crane cables.

A method of mathematical modeling is used to analyze the impact of strong and very strong fire on ventilation systems of road tunnels for the purpose of establishing the period of their collapse and management of extreme situations. Models are executed for a longitudinal ventilation system using jet fans and for semi-cross-section sucking away system of airing which are adapted in Georgia. The fire temperature of the models varied within the limits of 300-1000 0C, its thermal capacity being 30-100 ÌW. At the temperature 1000 0C, the period of collapse for the semi-transverse exhaust ventilation system varied within 0.5-2.5 minutes, depending on the thermal capacity of fire. About the same period is characteristic of the longitudinal system. In terms of control in emergencies at strong and very strong fires, none of the considered systems is efficient. In this case, the only way to save the lives and the infrastructure is an operative partition of the tunnel into short sections by moving crosspieces or like means to suspend or completely stop the uncontrolled penetration and distribution of toxic gases and superfluous heat in the underground space.

The airflow in a tunnel under the influence of the swabbing effect of train movement and aftereffect is established by means of an aerodynamic calculation. It is found that for the given tunnel conditions about 2/3 of the airflow resulting from the swabbing effect move in the direction of the train movement, while the rest flows in the opposite direction, to a free space between the train and the tunnel line. This provokes air turbulence and represents a common constituent of aerodynamic resistance. Despite this, all galleries of the Marabda-Akhalkalaki trunk-railway can be aerated at the expense of natural draught resulting from the train swabbing effect. To better use the swabbing effect-generated draught, all chambers and niches should be equipped with air holes along the both sides of the tunnel. The sectional area of each air hole should make 5.6m2. The mentioned measures will lessen the aerodynamic resistance aroused by the airflow and allow supply of the calculated air to the tunnel using the swabbing effect.

The reforms aimed at transformation of the financial and institutional settings of the healthcare and social sectors have lasted over ten years in Georgia. However, the reforms are still on the agenda. The absence of the market stimulation and the competition became the core for the healthcare reform, which, based on the principles of a market economy, foresees the regulations. The main trend of the public healthcare is to be focused on the issues of the health and respective human rights protection of the socially vulnerable (disadvantaged) people. In this regard, for protection the interests of this group, it is possible to involve the civil society in the planning of the public health care policy and in assessment/monitoring of quality of the public health care service provision. This involvement of the civil society would contribute to the transparency of the State's activities and would increase its accountability to the society.

Leadership is a topic with universal appeal, and in the popular press and academic research literature much has been written about leadership. It is a highly valued phenomenon that is very complex. For centuries leadership theories have focused on leadership as a trait. This view restricts leadership to only those who are believed to have special characteristics. In contrast, the style approach in this research suggests that leadership is behavior that can be learned, changed, and improved. Using Blake and Mouton’s Managerial (Leadership) Grid®, quantitative data based on The Ohio State University Leadership Behavior Description Questionnaire (LBDQ), and semi-structured interviews’ results, we have attempted to describe the dominant leadership style in Georgia for further changes and development. Based on subordinates’ implicit belief-set dominating leadership style in Georgia tends to be Middle-of-the-Road Leadership, which tries to keep a balance between concerns for Production and Employees, that includes in itself a necessity of giving away a bit of each behavioral value.

Galvanic and metallurgical industries annually release into the sea great quantities of valuable and scarce substances which could be recovered from this sewage for their industrial recycling. Heavy metal salts, acids, alkalis, oils, detergents from galvanic/ metallurgical industry and ammonium chloride from cellulose industry aggravate the ecological situation becoming a menace to human health and marine life. By the application of reagent-free, eco-pure electrodialysis method to the salt solutions (NaCl, Na2SO4) artesian and sea water the feasibility of the composite technology development for the manufacture of a number of products and the sea water rectification from galvanic/ cellulose industry sewage is shown. Technological modes for these procedures on 12 electrodialysis schemes with the use of ion-exchange and bipolar membranes have been researched and developed. The most effective seven schemes have been chosen. These schemes allow to simultaneously achieving several objectives within a single production cycle.

It is supposed that the orbital and endogenous (deep) processes are responsible for climatic changes on the Earth (global warming, depletion of the ozone layer, etc). This assumption is evidenced by the facts that some mineral deposits (coals, clay, stone salt, bauxites and so forth) are directly connected to paleo and to present climatic zones of the Earth. Based on statistical data, dependence schedules between the quantity and intensity of volcanic eruptions for the period 1840-2000 have been constructed. A comparison îf these schedules with the paleoclimatic data makes obvious that there is à functional (linear) dependence between a rise in global temperature and the intensity of volcanic eruptions. Thus, the widespread, but insufficiently proved, position about the made-made causes of global warming and conformity of measures taken in this direction is not effective.

On the basis of methods developed in the Institute of Water Management, the damage to forest (1003 ha) burnt by fire in Borjomi and Ateni ravines and near Gori during the war is found to equal to GEL 1,212, 595 billion, or Euro 550 million. On the basis of field surveys, it was determined that about 191 ha (84%) of 250 ha forest burnt in Borjomi District can be considered as sections sensitive to erosion processes. To predict the erosion processes for the above-mentioned areas, the authors used the methods of Acad. Ts. Mirtskhulava and the scale of English Professor R. Morgan, according to which the conditions of slopes within the catchment basins of Nagvarevi, Mtsa, and the so-called Rusi can be considered as the 2nd degree erosion with 2-5 t/ha transporta­tion of soil particles annually. To prevent erosion processes on the burnt slopes, the authors considered a lot of different resource-saving light structures (to construct levees and terraces), their scientific priorities are protected by Georgian and foreign patents.

On the basis of quantitative measures of a geological threat, landslide-gravitational processes and the risk of their possible activation in accordance with their distribution and occurrence, we have subdi­vided the territory of Georgian into 7 conventional regions (zones). In accordance with the zoned areas, geo-monitoring of a regional significance should be organized for the areas located within the most dangerous zones, especially, for the settlements and strategi­c objects (highways, oil and gas pipelines, high-voltage transmission towers and electric power grids, hydraulic and irrigation objects, in land­scape-geographic area). The assessment and prediction of geological processes should be implemented both prior the land development and during the construction. Their liquidation or mitigation measures should be taken into account at the project level. Mode-instrumental observations of the second and the third levels should be implemented for the separate representative objects.

7.D3.1. Georgia’s total external debt against the background of the increases mobilization of internal resources. /G. Khantadze/. Science and Life. - 2010 - ¹2. - pp. 44-49. - geo.; abs.: geo., rus., eng.

The article deals with the seriousness of the problem of Georgia’s total external debt and attempts to consider the ways to cope with the problem. As the official data demonstrate, the total external debt of Georgia by 30 June 2010 amounted to USD 8720 million. Moreover, in order to ascertain the magnitude of the external debt and the capacity of its service, the authors use the internationally recognized standard rates: 1) the ratio of the external debt per capita, which makes USD 1,969. Considering the vulnerable economy of our country, this seems inconceivable; 2. The ratio of the total external debt from export reached by 31st December 2009 amounted to 455%; 3. The ratio of the total external debt from GDP by 31st December 2009 amounted to 80% (the critical verge is 50%).

The article considers a simulator of a sleeve-type film blow-forming process that enables to get a kinetic description of deformed-strength condition of the blown film and research the impact of structural and technological parameters on the process and a complex of the physical and mechanical data of the ready film. In practical applications, the simulator generally represents a two-point boundary problem for a system of common nonlinear differential equations. The preliminary results of the numerical experiment evidenced increased sensitivity of differential equations to changes of boundary conditions. The proposed adaptation of the parallel cannon method to the motion method parameters allows coping with the accounting difficulties.
