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.

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.

Dentists from RUDN University Presented a New Classification of Root Canal Shape Changes

Individual characteristics of the shape and cross-section of the root canal are one of the main issues for dentists. When treating a root canal, a doctor needs to properly clean it, fill it, and carry out a rebuilding procedure so that a canal is sealed. The first stage of endodontic treatment requires detailed knowledge of root canal anatomy. A team of dentists from RUDN University studied and classified various changes in root canal shapes. The new classification will help doctors avoid diagnostic errors, better select their tools, and treat patients more efficiently.

A chemist from RUDN developed a green catalyst for pharmaceutical and industrial chemistr

Many production facilities (e.g. plastic manufacturers, pharma companies, and others) use nanocatalysts that contain palladium—an expensive component that is not sustainably produced. A chemist from RUDN University found a way to reduce palladium consumption and to make its manufacture more eco-friendly. He developed a catalyst based on a substance that comes from plant waste. Using his invention, manufacturers could cut palladium consumption in half. Moreover, new catalysts can be reused multiple times without any decrease in efficiency.
