The through breakdown of construction elements by particles with natural or artificial origin is probable during long-time operation of space vehicles and orbital space stations. The space vehicle depressurization can arise because of crack generation by different pressures and dynamical stresses. The equipment development for fast detecting of the depressurization locations is very important task for International Space Station (ISS) and other space vehicle types. This task solution requires creating of computing models for object considered (the gas flow source from space vehicle module).
