Work number - M 8 AWARDED

Authors:O.A.Katok (Cand.Tech.Sci, scientist) and   V.P.Shvets (Cand.Tech.Sci, scientist). 


Presented by the G.S. Pisarenko Institute for Problems of Strength of the NAS of Ukraine.


The series of scientific works is composed of 15 scientific papers and 9 abstracts to papers.


Both the procedures and unique equipment have been developed for determining the current characteristics of structural material mechanical properties, including those in aggressive media, for example, in the radiation fields of high intensity, using the indentation method.

The procedures for practical implementation of the LM-hardness method concept to diagnose the state of structural materials during the operating time have been experimentally justified, which makes it possible to increase considerably the efficiency of material nondestructive testing and to solve a number of practical problems on the assessment of the actual state of the metal in structures during the operating time.

The results of the investigations have been implemented into practice at the manufacturing enterprise “Pivdenno-Ukrainska NPP”, National nuclear energy generating company “Energoatom,” the branch of the Fastiv distance of the Pivdenno-Zakhidna Railways and the “Vymiryuvalni  Tekhnologii, TOV”


The total number of author publications is 78.The results of the investigations on this subject matter were presented in 15 papers and 9 abstracts to the papers. The works of the authors were cited in more than 35 scientific journals, the general index of publication citations is 11 (according to the Scopus database), h-index = 3. 9 patents were taken out.
