Students of the Academy of Engineering present research in the field of construction and nanotechnology in Kazakhstan

Graduate students of the Engineering Academy became winners of the competition of reports at the International Conference "Problems of Technological Combustion." Georgy Tikhonov spoke about a new type of reinforcement profile, which is more economically advantageous in comparison with foreign analogues, and Grigory Grishin presented a project on high-strength nano-concrete. Participation in the conference was included in the student internship program at Al-Farabi Kazakh National University (Republic of Kazakhstan).

For the second year, under the guidance of associate professor, Ph.D. Galina Okolnikova, graduate students Georgy Tikhonov and Grigory Grishin have been engaged in research at RUDN at the junction of two priority areas - construction and nanotechnology. In the laboratories of the Engineering Academy, they study characteristics of modified concrete - nano-concrete. In 2018, both students became participants of the “RUDN International Scholarship” academic mobility support program, which allowed them to expand their knowledge and gain new experience from leading scientists at the University of Al-Farabi KazNU (Kazakhstan). Internship in Almaty was not limited to lectures and practical modules. They presented the results of their research in poster presentations at the International Conference "Problems of Technological Combustion", where they were praised by the competent jury. The chairman of the jury was Zulhair Mansurov, winner of the UNESCO award for his contribution to the development of nanoscience and natotechnology.

The research is devoted to the study of manufacturing technology of valves with a new four-row sickle profile AV500P. It is able to compete in foreign markets with expensive screw fittings. In quality, this class of reinforcement is not inferior to foreign analogues, and in production it is much more economical, because standard rolling equipment may be used. The armature has already been rolled at the Tula Metal Rolling Plant and the West Siberian Metallurgical Plant in the city of Novokuznetsk.

Students’ internship at Al-Farabi Kazakh National University lasted a month. During this time, they were able to replenish their knowledge with relevant information, visit laboratories of research institutes, such as the Kazakhstan Road Research Institute and the Institute for Problems in Combustion, and demonstrate the results of their scientific work. Full of new impressions and experiences, they plan to continue their research at RUDN.

Plasma produces oil: RUDN PhD student talks about a new method of oil production

Production of oil and gas by traditional means is becoming outdated. New environmentally friendly technologies are emerging, allowing not only to increase the profitability of the oil and gas complex, but also to preserve nature. Timofey Mazurchuk, a PhD student of the Faculty of Economics and a member of the International Academy of Technological Sciences, told us about the prospects of the oil and gas industry, the technology of plasma-pulse stimulation and student science at the RUDN.

Microorganisms will save from oil pollution

Alexander Elansky, a fourth-year student at the Agrarian and Technological Institute (RUDN has studied microorganisms (fungi and bacteria) that live in contaminated oil products. Selected active strains of such microorganisms capable of destroying oil and its products can be used both for remediation of areas contaminated with oil products and for accelerated utilization of waste oil-containing technical fluids.
