Dear colleagues and friends,

This year we celebrate the 70th anniversary of our colleague Prof. Sergei M. Aizikovich.

Prof. Victor Eremeyev, Prof. Alexander Galybin, Dr. Andrey Vasiliev, and Prof. Holm Altenbach are preparing a sampler of papers “Advanced Materials Modelling for Mechanical, Medical and Biological Applications” in the Springer’s Advanced Structured Materials Series dedicated to Sergei M. Aizikovich.



Sergey Aizikovich made a speech at the conference with a report:

“Sergei M. Aizikovich, Andrey S. Vasiliev, Evgeniy V. Sadyrin. Analytical solution of the contact problem on indentation of a half-space with coating in a simplified form”.


An article in the journal Nanomaterials

On 21 of September our team has published an article in the journal Nanomaterials (Q2 on the Web of Science database):

Sadyrin, E., Swain, M., Mitrin, B., Rzhepakovsky, I., Nikolaev, A., Irkha, V., Yogina, D., Lyanguzov, N., Maksyukov, S. and Aizikovich, S., 2020. Characterization of Enamel and Dentine about a White Spot Lesion: Mechanical Properties, Mineral Density, Microstructure and Molecular Composition. Nanomaterials, 10 (9), 1889.



On September 11-12, an international conference “Dynamics of technical systems-2020” was held, within the framework of which the Scientific and Educational Center “Materials” held section No. 3 “Problems of the creation and mechanics of heterogeneous and composite materials”.

Plenary talk on the topic “Integral equations for the identification of cracks at the boundaries of layers “was made by the leading researcher of the MBioM laboratory, Galybin Alexander Nikolaevich. Also, the employees of the MBioM laboratory, Vasiliev AS, Volkov S.S., Mitrin B.I., Sadyrin E.V., as well as undergraduates – graduates of the educational module taught by M.V. Svein: Mikhalchuk V.D., Filippenko V.A., Tananakina E.S.


XX International Conference “Modern Problems of Continuum Mechanics”

Employees of the MBioM laboratory made reports at the XX International Conference “Modern Problems of Continuum Mechanics” dedicated to the 100th anniversary of the birth of Academician II Vorovich:

  • Wear of a functional-gradient coating on a sliding
    thermal friction contact (speaker – B. I. Mitrin)
  • Theoretical method for determining the parameters of the depth-variable Young’s modulus (speaker – P. Lapina)

The conference was held remotely on the Microsoft Teams platform


Defense of diploma projects in biomechanics and biomedical materials science

On June 9, the defense of graduation projects of students who mastered the educational module “Introduction to Biomechanics and Biomedical Materials Science” took place under the leadership of the head of the laboratory of mechanics of biocompatible materials of DSTU, Honored Professor of the University of Sydney Michael Vincent Swain.

Graduates have clearly shown how knowledge in the field of robotics, cybersecurity of information systems, instrumentation and applied mechanics can be effectively integrated into medicine today to solve urgent medical problems. The setting of tasks was carried out by practicing doctors – employees of medical institutions of Rostov-on-Don and professors of Rostov State Medical University.


Invitation to attend the defense of graduation projects

We invite everyone interested in issues of modern biomechanics and materials science to join the procedure for protecting projects by 4-year students of DSTU on June the 9th from 9 AM to 3 PM (UTC+3). You will see how the knowledge in the field of robotics, cybersecurity of information systems, instrument engineering and applied mechanics can be effectively integrated into the medicine today to solve acute and urgent problems that operating surgeons and doctors are facing.

The academic initiator and coordinator of the project is the Honored Professor of the University of Sydney, the Head of the Laboratory of Mechanics of Biocompatible Materials at DSTU, who leads the research team on the Megagrant of the Government of the Russian Federation.

You will be able to ask your questions to both the students presenting their projects and solutions, and to invited expert practitioners:

  • Golubev Georgy Shotavich, head of the orthopedic department of MLPUZ GB №1 named. ON THE. Semashko “, the head. Department of Traumatology and Orthopedics, Physiotherapy and Sports Medicine Rostov State Medical University;
  • Epikhin Alexander Nikolaevich, Head of the Department of Ophthalmology, Rostov State Medical University;
  • Laktionov Egor Vitalievich, dentist, therapist, head of the dental department No. 2  “Dental Clinic of Rostov-on-Don”;
  • Ryabichko Artyom Gennadievich, dentist-surgeon, head of the orthopedic department No. 2  “Dental Clinic of Rostov-on-Don.”
