Metallurgy of welding
Reliability and efficiency of welded joints is determined by weldability of alloys and metallurgical processes. We investigate the heat physics of the welding arc, the thermodynamics of the processes of alloying, deoxidizing, removing sulfur, phosphorus and hydrogen. This is important for achieving high quality, microstructure and properties of welded joints.
Welding processes simulation
Thermal influence during welding and incorrect technology leads to the increase in welding stresses and deformation of welded structures. We simulate thermal processes, gas shielding and welding technology to improve the quality and high reliability of welded assemblies.
Development of flux-core wires and welding fluxes
The creation of modern flux-core wires, welding fluxes and coated electrodes with active slag, gas and alloying systems is an important sphere of our research. For the welding of new steels and alloys, new welding materials are required; we help them to be created.
Welding stresses and deformations simulation
The operational reliability of welded assemblies depends on their manufacturability, strength and efficiency of joints under conditions of static, dynamic and thermal loads. We optimize designs and technologies to reduce welding stresses and strains.
Material Science and Testing
The development of welding technologies for steels and alloys is based on fundamental knowledge in the field of materials science. We carry out the most thorough research and testing of metals and alloys using modern equipment
