Dear colleagues,

   You are welcome to participate in the 16th INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE on MECHANICS, RESOURCE, AND DIAGNOSTICS OF MATERIALS AND STRUCTURES following the tradition of the conferences on Mechanics of Microinhomogeneous Materials and Fracture and Resource and Diagnostics of Materials and Structures held since 2001. The event will be held in memoriam of Professor E. S. Gorkunov, Full RAS Member.

   Professor Eduard Gorkunov was a prominent expert in the development and design of magnetic, electromagnetic, and electromagnetic-acoustic methods of nondestructive testing and means for estimating the actual state of products and structural components and evaluating the service life of crucial objects. He headed the IES UB RAS for more than two decades and made a considerable contribution to the progress the institute has made by now. Professor E. S. Gorkunov came to the position of director in 1994 under conditions of severe financial and organizational difficulties, and he successfully guided the institute, between 2015 and 2020 as its research supervisor. He made a fundamental contribution to the formation and development of the lines of research that build the image of the institute even now. He always managed to combine fruitful research activity and organization of science at the highest and most important positions. From 1995 Prof. Gorkunov was deputy chairman of the Ural Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences. He had a great experience of international scientific contacts, and he was a full member of Academia NDT International, honorary member of the Bulgarian and Israeli Societies for Nondestructive Testing.

   The conference will host the 10th Russian conference school for young sciences on Diagnostics and Mechanics of Materials.

   The goal of the conference is to encourage scientists working in mechanics of materials, materials science, and nondestructive testing, as well as industrial specialists, to solve scientific and applied problems.


The scope includes the following priority areas of the development of basic and applied research in the field of materials, such as:

  •  new methods for studying and predicting the useful life of machines and structures during their production and operation with the application of a complex approach to estimating the current state of structural and functional materials in terms of nondestructive testing, materials science, and mechanics;
  •  methods for the use of the results of nondestructive testing and materials science analysis in models of mechanics intended for predicting the useful life of materials and structures;
  •  state-of-the-art technologies of design, production, processing, and testing of materials aimed at increasing the level of the functional properties, durability, reliability, and survivability of machine parts and structural components used under extreme conditions;
  •  interdisciplinary approach to studying advanced materials with a multilevel hierarchical structure for new technologies and reliable structures;
  •  integrated research and prediction of the lifetime of biological objects and living organisms with the application of nondestructive testing, materials science, and biomechanics.

To participate in the conference, please send your abstracts in Russian or English at the conference email before 15.04.2022. The abstract is to contain 1000 to 1500 characters, including spaces. It must not contain figures, tables or references. See the conference website for an example of abstract execution. According to the results of considering the abstracts, the Organizing Committee will recommend participants to publish papers on the topics within the conference scope in a special issue of the journal of Procedia Structural Integrity indexed in Web of Science and Scopus; the full papers will be accepted before 15 July, 2022 (publication will require payment, please pay attention to the cost). All papers are to be reviewed. Previously published papers will not be accepted.

The Organizing Committee arranges a contest for young scientists participating in the conference. To participate in the contest, please submit a manuscript of at least 7 pages to be published in the journal of Diagnostics, Resource and Mechanics of materials and structures (DReaM). The authors are welcome to submit papers both on the subjects of their presentations and on other subjects within the scope of the journal. The manuscripts must follow the requirements of the journal, and they are to be uploaded to the personal account of the website dream-journal.org before 30 April 2022. According to the results of reviewing, the young scientists whose manuscripts will be accepted for publication will be charged no admission fee.
