RUDN Engineering Academy expert tells about the results of researching high performance modified concrete
Galina Okolnikova, professor of the Department of architecture and construction of RUDN Engineering Academy took part in the III International conference of Engineering Sciences and Technologies 2017 in Cebu (Philippines) 24-25 November, 2017, where she made a report on her research in the field of modern composite construction materials, in particular – high performance modified concrete.
Research results were used when building high-rise buildings of the Moscow international business center Moscow-City and reconstructing the building of RUDN Engineering Academy.
A research team from RUDN University developed an algorithm to help large groups of people make optimal decisions in a short time. They confirmed the efficiency of their model using the example of the market at which the outbreak of COVID-19 began. The model helped the administration and sellers agree on closing the market and reach a consensus about the sums of compensations in just three steps.
A team of chemists from RUDN University suggested a universal method to synthesize thienoindolizine derivatives. Because of their special properties, these substances can be used to manufacture antibacterial and antitumor drugs, as well as new materials for optoelectronics.
Even if a black hole can be described with a mathematical model, it doesn’t mean it exists in reality. Some theoretical models are unstable: though they can be used to run mathematical calculations, from the point of view of physics they make no sense. A physicist from RUDN University developed an approach to finding such instability regions.
