RUDN Engineering Academy expert tells about the results of researching high performance modified concrete
Galina Okolnikova, professor of the Department of architecture and construction of RUDN Engineering Academy took part in the III International conference of Engineering Sciences and Technologies 2017 in Cebu (Philippines) 24-25 November, 2017, where she made a report on her research in the field of modern composite construction materials, in particular – high performance modified concrete.
Research results were used when building high-rise buildings of the Moscow international business center Moscow-City and reconstructing the building of RUDN Engineering Academy.
October 6, the Nobel Committee announced the 2021 Nobel Prize Winners in Chemistry. They were scientists Benjamin List (Germany) and David Macmillan (USA) for new methods of molecular synthesis. RUDN chemists know Professor Liszt personally — in 2019, the researcher came to participate in the university conference.
The Nobel Committee in Stockholm has named the laureates in Medicine — David Julius and Ardem Patapoutian. They discovered how temperature or touch, for example, is transformed into human sensations.
Allowing for quantum corrections, the Einstein-Lovelock theory describes black holes with an equation that contains an infinite number of terms. However, according to a RUDN University physicist, the geometry of a black hole in this theory can be presented in a compact form, and a limited number of terms can suffice to describe the observed values. This could help scientists study black holes in theories with quantum corrections to Einstein’s equations.
