Staff of laboratory: Number of regular staff - 17 persons, from them: 2 - doctors of science (Dr. Sc.), 6 - candidates of science (Ph. D.), 3 - the research assistants without degree.
Lines of basic scientific research:
- Increasing the strength and tribological properties of metal materials by thermo-mechanical-chemical processing and improving nondestructive testing techniques and their physical-mechanical characteristics.
Methods for forming functional nanocrystalline layers on steel surfaces with the use of friction treatment by sliding indenters and producing wear resistant chromium-nickel coatings with extremely high heat resistance have been developed;
- Developing new approaches and mathematical models for solving the fundamental problem of mechanics, which would enable one to evaluate adequately the functional abilities (strength, bearing capacity, residual life) of engineering components being designed and those in use that operate in a wide range of loads.
Mathematical models have been developed and applied to the evaluation of the strength and service life of critical components in aircrafts, gas pipelines, railway rolling stocks and other currently working structures;
- Developing scientific foundations for the analysis and design of efficient and economical combined membrane catalytic systems intended for the production of ultrapure hydrogen from various hydrocarbon materials.
A mathematical model has been developed and applied to the description of the experimental flow characteristic and a number of other parameters of a trial membrane converter, with an output of 40 m3H2/h, designed for the production of ultrapure hydrogen from natural gas.
