A laboratory for the study of physical and chemical mechanics of materials will be built in Novosibirsk

The RAS Siberian Branch has won a grant from the Ministry of Education and Science of the Russian Federation for large-scale research projects on the topic

"Creation of a theoretical and experimental platform for the study of physical and chemical mechanics of materials with complex loading conditions."

The grant will be implemented by more than five scientificorganizations: Institute of Hydrodynamics SB RAS, Institute of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics SB RAS, Institute of Chemical Kinetics and Combustion SB RAS, Institute of Catalysis SB RAS and others.

One of the research topics is preparation forwork at SKIF. In particular, this will help to create a materials science station on the current equipment of the Institute of Nuclear Physics (INP) of the SB RAS. Now pioneering work in this direction is being carried out in the world and results are obtained that are very interesting from a scientific and applied point of view.

According to Pruell, scientificworks designed to educate people and develop research methods using synchrotron radiation. In turn, work on materials science will be conducted in other scientific organizations included in the consortium.

National project "Science" providescreation by 2024 of megascience class installations (the name of a class of unique scientific installations in the classification of the Ministry of Education and Science in the national project "Science"), including the Center for Shared Use (CCU) "SKIF" in the Novosibirsk Academgorodok.

The SKIF Center for Collective Use will include not onlyaccelerator complex, but also a developed user infrastructure, experimental stations and a laboratory building. The launch of the first phase of the project is scheduled for 2024, the estimated cost is estimated at 37.1 billion rubles.

The grant is designed for three years.
