Magnetic shock absorber

Magnetic shock absorber

(Nevrovsky V.A.)

The utility model relates to the means of vibration protection of objects in various fields of technology, in particular, in engineering and transport. The magnetic shock absorber contains a hollow cylindrical body, open on one side, a cover mounted on this side, through which a rod is passed, to which a piston in the form of a circular magnetic washer is attached. Another magnetic washer is installed on the blind end of the cylindrical cavity. Between the piston and the bottom magnetic washer there is located at intervals a series of identical magnetic washers facing each other with the same poles. In this device, the housing, the stem and the cover are made of ferromagnetic metal and thus form a magnetic core. Inside the case is placed a cylindrical liner of metal having a high specific electrical conductivity. The Eddy currents (Foucault currents) induced in it lead to additional braking of the depreciable object attached to the rod. The technical result is an increase in the damping effect of the magnetic damper.

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 chemists developed cheap and eco-friendly surfactants

An international team including chemists from RUDN University suggested an economically feasible and environmentally friendly method to synthesize surfactants. The new compounds can become an eco-friendly alternative to traditional chemicals used in oil production, skincare products manufacture, and in the pharmaceutical industry to transport drugs to diseased body tissues.
