Biomechanical simulations using COMSOL Multiphysics software.
The talk is concerned with FEM modeling using COMSOL Multiphysics (c) software. Notably, the effect of the intraocular volume (IOV) changes on intraocular pressure (IOP) is discussed. The eyeball is simulated as an ellipsoidal shell of one (representing the sclera) or two (representing the sclera and the cornea) segments. The impact of mechanical properties of the sclera and the cornea on IOP-IOV relationship is studied. Certain characteristics of COMSOL Multiphysics, like parameterized material properties and the interaction of mechanical structures with fluid flow is showed.

Yu.M. Dahl (St. Petersburg State University)
About Kolovoss formulas in the plane theory of elasticity .
Solutions of plane theory of elasticity in terms of complex functions Phi(z) and Psi(z) (two Kolosovs formulas) were examined. The right part of the first of these formulas is the integral of equation of indissolubility, and the right part of the second formula is the integral of two equations of equilibrium. Besides classical form two different new versions of Kolosovs relations were found. The exact solution for a periodical problem for the elastic plane with infinite cracks along a straight line are found. It is assumed that the stresses vanish at infinity and the opposite crack edges are loaded with normal concentrated forces. The existence conditions for such solution were formulated.

B.V. Kostenko (PSTU)
Development of the method of analysis of the combined truss rod systems.
The statement of the initial static problem, peculiarities of the structure design, derivation of equations and methods of solution are discussed in the first part of the report. The numerical-analytical solution of the initial static problem, in which deflections and strengths depend nonlinearly on the external load, is obtained. The methods for improving the structure design and the effect of these improvements on the mathematical formulation of the problem are considered. The second part is devoted to the dynamic problem, in which the external load varies in time and space.

E.A.Kosjakov (SPbSU)
Differential equations for librational motion of gravity-oriented rigid body.
A gravity-oriented rigid body on a circular Keplerian orbit in a central gravitational field is considered. The attitude motion of the body is affected by a perturbation torque that lends itself to a cubic approximation. With inclusion of third infinitesimal terms a new notation is obtained for the differential equations of disturbed motion which is generalization of familiar equations in canonical variations extending them to the case where both potential and nonpotential disturbing forces are operative. The form is convenient for the analysis of quasi-linear oscillations of a body about its center of mass with the use of asymptotic methods of nonlinear mechanics.

Nonclassical shell theories for the analysis of transversally isotropic spherical layers under normal pressure.
The stress strain states of transversally isotropic two-layered spherical shell under normal pressure are studied.

Solutions are obtained by using the exact 3D theory of elasticity and two approximate theories for orthotropic plates: the theory of shells of moderate thicknesses by Paliy-Spiro (PS) and the refined theory developed by Rodinova-Titaev-Chernykh (RTC).
