About project

The project of research Laboratory for Mechanics of Advanced Bulk Nanomaterials for Innovative Engineering Applications under supervision of professor Ruslan Valiev is realized at Saint-Petersburg State University. The project is supported by the grant 14.В25.31.0017 (Contract of June 28, 2013) from the Government of the Russian Federation.

This project is focused on establishment of new Laboratory for Mechanics of Advanced Bulk Nanomaterials for Innovative Engineering Applications at the Faculty of Mathematics and Mechanics of St. Petersburg State University, whose research and innovation activities will result in development of fundamental mechanics of nanomaterials, elaboration of scientific principles for fabrication of new metallic bulk nanomaterials with superior mechanical properties, and their innovative applications in structural, electric-power and medical engineering fields. The project represents a multidisciplinary research with contributions from the fields of nanomaterials mechanics, materials science of nanostructures, and nanoengineering, having both fundamental and practical counterparts. The proposed project will highly enhance educational activity and involve a significant number of young scientists and students in a cutting-edge world-class research in nanomaterials mechanics and nanoengineering fields.
