Rethinking Cultural Ecofeminism in the Commercial Transport and Storage System in Ghana: A Critique of “Women Moving the City” and “Women Moving Trucks” Projects

The History of Land Transport, 2019, 5(1): 3-11.

This paper analyzes the motivations behind two projects, “Women Moving the City” and “Women Moving Trucks” in the commercial transport industry of Ghana under the purview of the cultural ecofeminist. Evidently, the industry is mainly dominated by men however, the disproportionate representation of women, poor regulatory arrangements and questionable driving attitude of male drivers have led to high rates of accidents. The projects, which recruited and trained only females to drive buses and heavy-duty trucks in Accra and Takoradi underscored certain essential attributes that consider the female drivers over their male colleagues because of certain essential but intimate associations they possess. Accordingly, the goal of mainstreaming a proportionate representation of females in the commercial transport and logistics industries as well as encouraging male drivers to adopt a more ‘feminine’ driving style has been accorded with priority. The paper reviews that the ideology of essentializing women driving style over men can weaken the mainstreaming goal of the projects in the future. Relevance on raising awareness, building self-confidence and expanding choices, increasing people’s access to and control over resources in the commercial transport industry should be prioritized.

Analysis of the Formulas for Calculating the Axial Load on the Head Balancer of the Rocking Machine, Created by Pump Rods Made of Fiberglass. Comparison of the Obtained Results with Steel Pump Rods

The History of Land Transport, 2019, 5(1): 12-21.

The determination of the axial load on the balancer head of the pumping unit is made according to the static and dynamic theories. The boundary between them is the interval (transition zone) of the Cauchy parameter. Calculation of loads is presented according to theories: • Definition of loads by the formulas I.M. Muraveva (static theory); • Definition of loads by the formulas A.S. Virnovsky; • Definition of loads using simplified formulas A.S. Virnovsky; • Determination of the maximum load using the empirical formula Adonina A.N. (dynamic theory); • Definition of loads by the formulas Charny I.A. (dynamic theory). The following is a calculation of the stresses generated in steel and fiberglass sucker rods. Based on the data obtained, an analysis was carried out, from the point of view of applicability, of fiberglass rods in comparison with steel rods.

Lubrication System for In-line Engines with a Capacity of 1000 ... 1200 hp

The History of Land Transport, 2019, 5(1): 22-29.

In this article, methods for reducing the thermal stress of the piston of an internal combustion engine were disclosed. An informational review of this topic was made, and in particular, an analysis of existing piston cooling systems and ways to improve the cooling efficiency was carried out. The choice was made the most efficient method of cooling. It also describes the device of the piston cooling system, as well as modern approaches to solving this problem. Calculation schemes for piston heat exchange and a scheme for changing the oil temperature on the piston surface and the irrigation density depending on the angle of rotation of the crankshaft are presented. The essence of oil cooling using a jet nozzle is described. The piston cooling has been calculated for the KamAZ six-cylinder in-line engine, from which it follows that 0.6 l/min is needed to cool one piston, certain conclusions have been made.

Improving the Engine Efficiency by Installing the Turbo Compound System

The History of Land Transport, 2019, 5(1): 30-35.

The engine was thermally calculated; on the basis of which a working draft of an engine with a working volume of 1596 cm3 can be developed using the Turbo Compound system. The calculated data of the main technical engine parameters with Turbo Compound System are presented. In conclusion, the authors note that an increase in pressure by the intake compressor also leads to undesirable consequences for the engine resource, to an increase in mechanical stresses on the parts of the crank mechanism and cylinder-piston group. In this regard, it is necessary to hold more detailed constructive-technological study of strength, resource and heat resistance of the most important parts of the engine – piston, piston rings, piston pin and others.
