Concerning topical problems in developing Russia’s oil and gas complex, machine building industry, power industry (incl. nuclear), aircraft and rocket building industry, shipbuilding, transport, construction, road building, and biomedicine technology:

  • Materials, composites, coatings and structures capable of adapting to external forces (force, temperature, radiation, frequency, etc)
  • Permanent joint technology, including welding of modern metal alloys, compositions and layered materials
  • Complex data collection methods for damage during construction and integrated databases for estimating the residual life of structures
  • Safety, efficiency and workability of composite-based structures
  • Evaluation of structural safety accounting for multifactor combinations of probable damages, analysis of complex databases, and real-time monitoring of structures
  • Multilevel electronic (digital) models of structures and equipment for the next generation of computer-aided design systems using CALS technologies
  • Mathematical models, numerical methods and equipment for monitoring structures and estimating their operational safety
  • Regulatory base for evaluating and certifying materials, structures and technologies

Advisory Group for Research and Development in Materials and Structures

The Advisory Group for Research and Development in Materials and Structures (hereinafter – the Group) is an ad-hoc advisory group to assist in identifying research and educational priorities to meet long, medium, and short-term economic needs. This ongoing collaboration enables Skoltech to prepare students with the technical and practical skills demanded by leading companies in key sectors of the Russian economy (hereinafter – Companies).
The Group consists of representatives from Skoltech, Companies, technological platforms which concentrate on materials and structures as well as other organizations and state bodies determining technological policy in key sectors of the Russian economy.

Functions:

  • Elaborate on priority directions of scientific and technological and educational programs in the area of Materials and Structures
  • Provide for the exchange of knowledge among the Group’s collaborating companies and Skoltech in collaboration with universities and research institutions to orient programs training engineers and highly qualified technicians
  • Prepare programs and initiate international educational projects based upon the technological needs of the Companies
  • Monitor and assess the scientific and practical significance of research conducted in part by Skoltech addressing the interests of the Companies
  • Collaborate with other Skoltech Working Groups in overlapping areas

Skoltech’s Vice President for Industrial Cooperation and State Programms coordinates the activities of the Group.

Materials and structures: industrial project in the framework of the Federal Target Program – Research and development on priority directions of scientific and technological complex of Russia for 2014-2020

In the summer of 2014, Skoltech initiated a forming the consortium in the field of  the new materials jointly with the Saint-Petersburg State Polytechnical University, Tomsk Polytechnical University, Institute of Strength Physics and Materials Science SD RAS (Tomsk), Institute of Problems of Mechanical Engineering (St. Petersburg), Moscow Institute of Steel and Alloys (Moscow) and supported by the industrial partner OJSC “United Rocket and Space Corporation”.  This consortium received a grant from the Federal budget as part of the Federal Target Program “Research and development in priority areas of scientific and technological complex of Russia for 2014-2020″ for the next 3 years which was announced on September 15, 2014.

The title of the project : “Development of an integrated system of computer-aided design and engineering for the additive production of light and reliable composite structures for key high-tech industries.”

The project will be implemented by the Center for Design, Manufacturing and Materials jointly with the project partners.
