Brief description of the laboratory achievements in the frame of Mega-grant in 2013-2017:
The goal of the project implemented in 2013-2017 under the state contract 14.B25.31.0017 of 28 June 2013 was the establishment of the Laboratory for Mechanics of Advanced Bulk Nanomaterials for Innovative Engineering Applications at Saint Petersburg State University, the results of scientific research and innovation activity of which will be the development of fundamental mechanics of nanomaterials, design of scientific principles for obtaining new bulk nanomaterials with superior mechanical properties, as well as their innovative application in structural and electrical engineering and medicine.
The following main scientific results were obtained during 2013-2017:
- Theoretical models that effectively describe processes and micromechanisms (including new micromechanisms) of plastic deformation and fracture of bulk nanomaterials (BNM) were designed as a part of development of fundamental mechanics of nanomaterials
- The samples of BNM were obtained from different metal alloys by methods of severe plastic deformation. Their nanostructural features were studied experimentally and their mechanical properties and micromechanisms of plastic deformation were also comprehensively investigated
- The principles of structural design of BNM for achievement of their high strength (superstrength) were developed. The concepts of using nanomaterials for new structural applications were developed, and comprehensive experimental studies of the unique mechanical and physical properties of samples and products fabricated using the developed approaches and concepts were carried out
- Complex tests of mechanical and functional properties of nanostructured titanium and its alloys were conducted, on the basis of which the approaches of their application as materials for medical implants of a new generation were developed
The following scientific indicators were achieved during the project:
The scientific staff of the laboratory, consisting of highly qualified specialists (DScs and PhDs), as well as young researchers, students and postgraduate students, was created (see sec. 1-3, 8 of the indicator list).
More than 100 articles indexed in WoS system were published. 6 monographs of well-known international publishers as Wiley, Springer, etc. and 7 study guides were published (see sec. 4, 13-14 of the indicator list and Publications).
7 new educational courses in SPbU and USATU were prepared and introduced. 5 training courses for young scientists and lecturers from external organizations, with participation of more than 90 people were organized and successfully conducted (see sec. 5, 9 of the indicator list). 9 international workshops and conferences were carried out (see sec. 15 of the indicator list and Events).
5 DSc and 9 PhD theses were defended as the result of work (see sec. 6-7 of the indicator list and Dissertations).
7 commercial agreements with a third party were concluded and fulfilled (see sec. 12 of the indicator list).
The unique equipment at a cost of more than 20 mln. rub. was purchased, constructed and put into service (see section Equipment).
19 grants of various funds/organizations of the Russian Federation were won by the laboratory staff (see sec. 11 of the indicator list), 12 patents (RU 2 542 073, RU 2 547 984, RU 2 586 188, RU 2 613 618, RU 2 616 316, RU 2 628 594, RU 2 635 989, RU 2 649 031, RU 2 652 520, RU 2 665 590, RU 2 667 271, RU 2 685 622) were obtained (see sec. 10 of the indicator list).
The prestigious international awards for achievements in scientific work (TMS Fellow Award 2014, SOMIYA Award 2015, State award of the Republic of Bashkortostan in the field of science and technology 2015) were won by the leading scientist.
Citation of scientific publications of the leading scientist and the laboratory staff in 2013-2017 exceeded 20 000 (Scopus), that is one of the highest rates for the Russian scientists.
Obtained results and conclusions formulated on their basis are novel and superior to the world standard in this field of science. They are of great significance for fundamental sciences of advanced bulk nanomaterials, as well as for development of production and forming technologies and for innovative engineering applications of bulk nanomaterials with the unique mechanical properties (particularly with high and superior strength).
