Laboratory of Mechanics of Strength and Fracture of Materials and Structures

Research Topics

  • Modeling nucleation and growth of cracks in heterogeneous media with accounting of degradation and healing of materials. Development numerical methods for solving of fracture mechanics problems.
  • Development of models and methods for the formation of ordered systems of cracks - fracture structures under various loading conditions.
  • Investigation of the propagation of elastic waves in functionally gradient and stratified media.
  • The developing of mathematical models of granular materials for the development of new generation of seismic insulating devices.
  • Development of methods for the identification of defects (cavities, cracks, inclusions) in an elastic body based on overdetermined data at the body boundary obtained as a result of a static test.
  • Development of methods for identifying crack-like defects in rods by vibrational characteristics corresponding to longitudinal and transverse vibrations.
  • Development of models of deformation and destruction of ice and ice cover when interacting with barriers (icebreakers and ice-resistant structures).
  • Measurement of residual stresses using a non-through sounding hole and electronic speckle interferometry.
  • Development of mechanical models for strength and fracture toughness of joining of composite materials and biological tissues.
  • Biomechanics of intravascular and dental implants.


fracture mechanics, multiscale structure, defect detection, strength.
