Laboratory of Mechanics of Strength and Fracture of Materials and Structures

Research Topics

  • mechanics of strength and fracture of structural components with cracks and crack-like defects under static, cyclic and dynamic loading as well as under the action of physical fields and active media;
  • mathematical methods of solid mechanics including analytical, qualitative and quantitative methods, numerical methods of boundary elements and boundary functional, computer codes for solving 3D-elasticity problems for bodies with cracks and other stress concentrators;
  • mechanics of material processing including material forming, modeling of defect formation during the processing, in particular, during mono-crystals grows;
  • development of methods and devices for express-evaluation of residual stresses and defect detection in structural components;
  • mechanics of ice and ice cover and its applications to the problems on ice navigation and design of ice resistance structures;
  • mechanics of deformation and fracture of polymer composites;
  • solid mechanics in applications to bio-medical problems including problems of artificial crystals of eyes, tissues, stomatology problems, biomechanics of cardiovascular implants.


fracture mechanics, multiscale structure, defect detection, strength.
