Laboratory of Mechanics and Optimization of Structures

Research Topics

  • vibrations and stability of membrane-plate systems performing high-speed movement and interacting with external media and optimization of vibration suppression;
  • variational methods in mechanics of solids and development of efficient computational algorithms of local and global optimization;
  • optimization of structures from homogeneous and composite materials under strength and longevity constraints;
  • problems with incomplete data in solid mechanics and the theory of multi-objective optimal structural design;
  • static and dynamic problems of contact interaction including optimization problems;
  • stability of straight movement of bodies in deformed medium taken into account friction and rotation with respect to axis of symmetry;
  • experimental study of high-speed penetration of strikers, perforation of protection systems and motion of rigid bodies in various media.


structural mechanics, optimal design.
