Basic Scientific Trends:
Isochronic creep theory of linear-strengthening, nonlinear-strengthening and ideal-plastic materials determining creep equations under statical, stepped and cyclic loadings.
Continual theory of long-term fracture in conditions of creep; criteria and models of viscous, brittle and mixed fracture; methods of prediction of creep and long-term strength.
Nonlinear mechanics of continual damageability, models of propagation of fatigue cracks with regard for the two-stage character of the fracture process; kinetics of damageability, longevity and final condition under the stepped loading and under creep-fatigue interaction.
Experimental study of the processes of creep, fatigue, damageability and long-term fracture under statical and cyclic loading; the method of experimental proceeding and experimental data processing; data banks: undestructive methods of control.
