Competition of research works of scientific and pedagogical collectives summed up the results
Within the framework of the program for improving the competitiveness of RUDN “5-100”, the results of the competition for support of research works of scientific and pedagogical teams led by leading scientists were summed up. The competition was held between February 17, 2020 and June 30, 2020. A total of 7 applications were received from the RUDN divisions, of which 5 projects were supported.

Project “Improving the performance of internal combustion engines by improving diagnostics and maintenance of mechanisms and systems” (application from the Academy of Engineering, head — Igor Kevorkovich Danilov). The project aims to develop effective solutions to improve the performance of internal combustion engines. The researchers plan to obtain an analytical relationship between the fuel injection pressure indicator and the movement of the bypass valve stem of the high-pressure line of fuel equipment. Based on the obtained dependence, the project team is going to develop a method and device for diagnosing the fuel equipment of modern engines.

Project “Experimental study of a highly efficient multi-stage heat pump installation” (application from the Academy of Engineering, head — Yuri Antipov). The key goal of the project is to create a three-stage installation. The researchers plan to find out how the temperature difference between low-potential and high-potential heat sources (1), the number of stages of the installation itself (2) and the composition of the refrigerant (3) affect its efficiency.

Project “Development of a software package for predicting self-ignition (detonation) of fuels used in spark-ignition engines” (application from the Academy of Engineering, head — Ivan Zaev). The goal of the project is to develop a mathematical model for calculating the thermodynamic parameters of the working process of an engine with forced spark ignition. The project team develops methods for calculating the moment of self-ignition of a fuel-air mixture. This is necessary to determine the operating conditions of the engine without detonation for a given design.

Project “Development of innovative clusters within the BRICS: transition from national projects to network interaction” (application from the Faculty of Economics, head — Vladimir Davydov). The project is aimed at developing recommendations for optimal organizational, legal and marketing support for the development of network interaction between BRICS innovation clusters.

Project “Application of medicinal plants and their extracts to improve growth, immunity and disease resistance in fish” (application from the Agrarian and Technological Institute, head- Yousefi Morteza). The aim of the project is to provide scientific justification for the identification and use of inexpensive and environmentally friendly feed additives (medicinal plants and their extracts) to improve the immunity and growth indicators of various fish species.

RUDN chemist creates catalyst to produce anti-mosquito substances

A chemist from RUDN University has developed a catalyst for the production of eugenol acetate, a substance that destroys the larvae of mosquitoes transmitting dangerous diseases, being a safe chemical for human health.

RUDN soil scientists developed a new method for assessing soil fertility

RUDN soil scientists have revealed a direct correlation between the rate of soil formation of carbon dioxide, called CO2 emissions, and the content of microbial biomass in it. It is known that CO2 emission from soil is mainly conditioned by respiration of soil microorganisms and plant roots. The more CO2 soil emits, the more microbial biomass it usually contains. It was shown that CO2 emission by chernozem of different ecosystems (or different types of land use) correlates with the content of microbial biomass, and most closely with the rate of its microbial respiration. And the soil with good microbial properties has the “best quality”, is more fertile, provides the highest yield of crops and other plant biomass.

RUDN University chemists proposed a way to reduce three times the temperature for the oxidation of alkanes

RUDN University chemists and their colleagues from the Russian Academy of Sciences have proposed new catalysts that allow to reduce the temperature of the oxidation reaction of alkanes three times — from 150 to 50 degrees. This significantly reduces the cost of synthesizing alcohols, aldehydes and other compounds needed, in particular, for the production of nylon and capron.
