Separating load-gripping mechanism of convergent type of movement

FIELD: wood processing industry.

SUBSTANCE: separating load-gripping mechanism of the ascending type of motion includes a ballistic-type load-holding mechanism, held by an aerostat, which is divided into two working units by means of four side winches for processing a vertically standing tree. The separating load-gripping mechanism comprises a ball-retaining upper and lower independent ball elements retained by the balloon at the edge of which the gripping and shearing mechanisms are disposed. Each of the beam elements is held on a balloon by two personal electric cargo ropes and acts as a manipulator, the frontal guidance of which on the tree trunk is performed due to the balloon displacement by means of a ground winch and pull-pull ropes. At the point of guidance, both beam elements are parallel to each other and perpendicular to the tree trunk.

EFFECT: work is carried out related to pruning branches and branches from vertically standing trees, keeping the trunk at its cut and taking it out of the forest canopy and moving it with a balloon to the unloading point.

SUBSTANCE: invention relates to technologies of forestry and logging industry. The method comprises measuring the length and diameters of the trunks in the bark along the length of the trunks and in butt sections. 100 trees non-doted in shape are taken, in which the length of the trunks is measured, as well as the diameters in the bark in the butt, the trunk diameters in the bark starting from the butt sections to the tops of the trees, and the trunk diameters at half the length of the trunk. According to the results of all measurements the relative lengths (h/H) and the relative diameters of the trunks in the bark corresponding to them are determined. On the aggregate of the data obtained the absolute dimensions of tree trunks are determined. Taking into account the coefficients on the bark and technological diameter of the trunk the variable diameters of the trunks without bark are determined at breast height, followed by determining the variable cross-sectional area of trunks without bark on the trunk length and the volume of tree trunks without bark.

SUBSTANCE: invention relates to environmental monitoring of areas with grass cover. The method comprises allocation on the small river or its tributary visually on the map or in-situ of the site of floodplain meadow with grass cover. The marking on the allocated site along the flow of the small river or its tributary is carried out in characteristic places of at least three cross-sections in the transverse direction. The marking along each cross-section is carried out of at least three test sites on each side of the small river or its tributary. On each test site a frame is placed with the inner sides of least 0.50×0.50 m. Then, flush with the surface of the soil the aerial parts of certain plants or their portions are cut in the form of several plants of the same species present at the test site. Then, the cut portions of the plants are laid in separate piles on the species of grass. After cutting all the blades of grass from all the test site the piles of grass are immediately weighed on a portable scale. After weighing the piles of grass are thrown away. Weighting procedure with throwing the weighted plants is repeated at each test site on the allocated area. Then the total weight of freshly cut grass is calculated by species of grass. At each separate test site the weight of the sample of the freshly cut grass is calculated as the sum of the weights of separate piles by species of grass. The total weight of the plant species is calculated as the sum of all the piles of cut grass on species from all test sites. Then, on the certain species of plants for all test sites the rank scale of the grass species is made on the freshly cut mass. The ranks are arranged with increase in the total weight on the site. Assessment of the species composition of the grass cover is carried out by statistical modelling by identifying the mathematical models of mass change of cut grass on the site and on a separate test site depending on the rank of species of grass and herbaceous plants.

EFFECT: technology enables to increase the accuracy of accounting of the presence of species of grass and herbaceous plants, with simultaneous simplifying the evaluation process of species composition.

SUBSTANCE: invention relates to engineering biology and environment indication. The method comprises selection of accounting birch trees. On each accounting tree relative to the cardinal points on the lower part of the crown the test branches are selected with leaf fluctuating asymmetry. Along the perimeter of the birch forest at least 10 accounting birch trees are selected. Then, on each accounting tree on the four cardinal points the selected test branches with leaf fluctuating asymmetry are marked by label. The height from the point of the label location to the soil surface is measured, and the distance from the label location to the boundaries of birch forest is measured. Additionally, the distance from the boundary of the birch forest to the trunk of each accounting birch is measured. The circumference of the trunk of accounting birch is measured. Further, according to the results of the measurements obtained, the statistical modelling is carried out with the definition of the correlation coefficient of the obtained statistical models on the measured parameters. According to the correlation coefficient the ecological assessment of the status of the territory is carried out.

EFFECT: technology enables to expand the functional capabilities of assessment of the ecological state of the territory through the use of proxy indicators, as well as to improve the accuracy of indication of the quality of the local environment surrounding the birch leaves.

SUBSTANCE: method comprises a breakdown of plantations to sites, forming the technology corridors. The breakdown of plantations is carried out to sites geometrically equal to the work area of the timber harvesting machine for selection cutting of trees on the bands on both sides of the technological corridors. Determining of trees intended for cutting is carried out in automated manner in real-time by obtaining stereoscopic image of the area from the stereo-pair of cameras mounted on the timber harvesting machine. First, the number of trees in the work area of the timber harvesting machine is determined by analysing a stereoscopic image of the space in front of the timber harvesting machine by the method of stereoscopic parallax. Then, the calculation of taxation indices is carried out - the diameter, shape coefficient and the height of the trunk of each tree in the timber harvesting machine work area. Then by the solver based on fuzzy logic based on the data obtained the trees are detected in the timber harvesting machine work area for probable destination for cutting. The tree having maximum probability of destination for cutting is displayed on the operator's monitor of the timber harvesting machine.
