RUDN University Participation in the 3rd International Conference on Building Materials and Construction (ICBMC 2018) in Nha Trang (Vietnam)

RUDN University Participation in the 3rd International Conference on Building Materials and Construction (ICBMC 2018) in Nha Trang (Vietnam)

On the 23-25 of February, representatives of the RUDN University Department of Architecture and Construction of the Engineering Academy, consisting of 3 people (the fifth year student of the Bachelor's degree in Architecture, Lidiya Natali Somarriba Sokolova (Nicaragua), the full-time PhD student Jean Paul Vladimir (Haiti) and the associate professor Rynkovskaya M.I.) participated in the international scientific conference "3rd International Conference on Building Materials and Construction (ICBMC 2018)" in Nha Trang (Vietnam).

On the 23-25 of February, representatives of the RUDN University Department of Architecture and Construction of the Engineering Academy, consisting of 3 people (the fifth year student of the Bachelor's degree in Architecture, Lidiya Natali Somarriba Sokolova (Nicaragua), the full-time PhD student Jean Paul Vladimir (Haiti) and the associate professor Rynkovskaya M.I.) participated in the international scientific conference "3rd International Conference on Building Materials and Construction (ICBMC 2018)" in Nha Trang (Vietnam) and successfully delivered 4 reports. Within the framework of the conference there were 5 sections:

  1. Civil and Structural Engineering
  2. Architecture and Urban Planning
  3. Materials Science and Engineering
  4. Materials Properties, Measuring Methods and Applications
  5. Materials Manufacturing and Processing

It was interesting to learn from the plenary report of Professor Low Sui Pheng (National University of Singapore (QS13) that in Singapore the technology of building modular buildings was actively developing, the report of Professor Jin-Keun Kim from Korea Advanced Insitute of Sciences and Technology (KAIST, QS41) was about serious research of building structures, including the mechanical properties of concrete, depending on the distribution of moisture in it, in Korea.

Associate Professor Rynkovskaya M.I. presented 2 reports that aroused the interest of the plenary lecturer from Macau, Professor Zongjin Li (University of Macau), who proposed to discuss the possibility of joint research on BRICS-supported projects.

Biologists from RUDN University discovered the secret of flaxseed oil with long shelf life

Biologists from RUDN University working together with their colleagues from the Institute of Molecular Biology of the Russian Academy of Sciences and the Institute of Flax studied the genes that determine the fatty acid composition in flaxseed oil and identified polymorphisms in six of them. The team also found out what gene variations could extend the shelf life of flaxseed oil. This data can be used to improve the genetic selection of new flax breeds. The results were published in the BMC Plant Biology journal.

RUDN University Biophysicist modelled the effect of antiseptics on bacterial membranes

A team of biophysics from leading Russian research and educational institutions (MSU, RUDN University, and the Federal Research and Clinical Center of the Federal Medical-Biological Agency of Russia) developed a computer model that shows the effect of antiseptics on bacterial membranes. The common concepts regarding the mode of action of antiseptics turned out to be incorrect: instead of destroying bacterial membranes, they cause changes in their structure. These changes make the bacteria weaker and more susceptible to adverse external factors.

RUDN University research team of mathematicians suggested a new decision making algorithm

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.
