MAIN RESEARCH FINDINGS AND COMMERCIAL OFFERS
Main research findings:
The theoretical foundations and the technology were developed for obtaining nanostructured dispersion-strengthened high-strength composite materials fabricated by mechanical alloying to be used in severe thermal and stress conditions.
Patterns and mechanisms of the formation of phase composition, structure and properties in the basic copper, aluminum, iron and nickel systems were established, which are the basis for the development of compositions and technologies to produce promising high-temperature materials and coatings possessing strength and durability characteristics that are 1.3-1.5 times superior to those of their analogues.
To implement the technology in small and medium series production, the unique equipment and tooling were developed and two innovative science intensive low-tonnage enterprises were established, which manufacture import-substituting nanostructured powders and products made from them.
The most significant implemented developments:
Based on the findings of the researchers of this scientific school, two innovative science-intensive low-tonnage enterprises were set up at the Belarusian-Russian University, which produce import-substituting nanostructured powders and products from them. These enterprises have already manufactured and sold products worth more than 1 mln US dollars to the enterprises of Belarus, the CIS and foreign countries.
The R&D results were implemented into practice and are applied to train mechanical engineering students at the Belarusian-Russian University.
