Basic Scientific Trends:

Theory of thermoviscopalsticity, describing complex nonisothermal processes of loading with regard for the geometry of the body element deformation trajectory and material damageability under creep.

Experimental methods of the study of materials properties manifesting und simple and complex processes of loading in different trajectories at elevated an high (to 2 500 C) temperatures.

Theory and methods of the study of thermoviscoelastoplastic state c isotropic and orthotropic laminated shells of revolution of arbitrary meridian under different complex processes of loading with regard for the geometry of the body element deformation trajectory and material damageability under creep.

Theory and methods of the study of thermoviscoelastoplastic state c isotropic and orthotropic composite bodies of revolution of arbitrary meridional cross-section under different complex loading processes with regard for the geometry of the body element deformation trajectory and damageability under creep.
