2023 Results. Science

Scientists of the ITM of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine and the State Space Agency of Ukraine completed 2023 with the following results.

8 departmental applied scientific and technical topics were completed, the results of which were implemented in production (Yuzhnoye State Design Office, JSC United Mining and Chemical Company “Vilnohirsk Mining and Metallurgical Combine, PRJSC Metalurgtransremont, LLC Laboratory of Promising Rocket Engines) and in the educational process of higher education institutions of Dnipro (Oles Honchar Dnipro National University, Ukrainian State University of Science and Technology), as well as 1 fundamental competitive scientific research for grants to research groups of young scientists of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine.

2 chapters in 2 monographs were published:

The Institute published 4 issues of the “Technical Mechanics” scientific journal with a total volume of 47.6 regional-published sheets.

In 2023, scientists of the Institute published their research results in 67 articles in domestic and foreign publications, including 51 articles in scientific journals indexed in international scientometric databases. Among these publications, it is worth highlighting such as Acta Astronautica, Naukovyi Visnyk Natsionalnogo Hirnychoho Universytetu, Eastern-European Journal of Enterprise Technologies, Science and innovation, Space Sci. & Technol, Radioelectronics and Communication Systems, IWA Publishing.

Corresponding member of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine Anatolii P. Alpatov made a report at the General Assembly of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, and the deputy director of the institute DSc., Prof. Volodymyr P. Poshyvalov – the report titled “Management of physical and mechanical properties of aluminum alloys to increase their strength characteristics and use in defense structures” at the meeting of the Presidium of the National Academy of Sciences.

The Institute acted as a co-organizer of the following scientific conferences:

  • XXV Annual International Youth Scientific and Practical Conference “Human and Space”, held on April 12-14, 2023, in Dnipro;
  • The International Scientific Conference “Actual problems of mechanics – 2023” , dedicated to the 145th anniversary of the birth of S. P. Tymoshenko. It was held on November 14-16, 2023 in the cities of Kyiv, Dnipro, Lviv and Kharkiv.

In 2024, the ITM of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine and the State Space Agency of Ukraine has planned to participate in the organization of the 26th International Youth Scientific and Practical Conference “Human and Space”, which will be held on April 17-19 in Dnipro with the participation of the Prydneprovsk Research Center, А. М. Makarov National Youth Aerospace Education Center, Yuzhnoye State Design Office, State Enterprise “Production Association Yuzhny Machine-Building plant named after A.M. Makarov”, Oles Honchar Dnipro National University and others.

In 2023, 9 young scientists of the institute, including graduate students, received scholarships of the President of Ukraine (5 persons) and the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine (4 persons) for young scientists. Young scientists worked under 2 grants, the results of which were presented at the Scientific Council of the ITM Institute and at the meeting of the Bureau of the Department of Mechanics of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine.
