Oil and Gas
Employees of the Department of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics conducted research for the leading oilfield services companies in the following areas:
- Simulation of hydraulic fracturing and related technological and geomechanical processes
- Studying of the dynamics of proppant in hydraulic fracturing
- Studying of the rheological properties of multiphase mixtures
Data Science Research Projects
Text processing (Natural Language processing).
Effective processing of huge volumes of voice or text messages information by making use of Natural Language Processing and Sentiment Analysis, which utilize all the powers of cutting-edge technologies:
- extracts specific data from long texts (e.g. articles, books, bills)
- automatically processes invoices, orders, contracts
- identifies the writer’s emotions and recognizes hate speech
- improves customer experience with chatbots and virtual assistants
Predictive analytics for organizations incorporates the power of Big Data, AI and Machine Learning (ML) technologies with using the available historical data:
- study available data and analyze clients’ behaviors to discover patterns
- make predictions and decisions based on historical records
- reduces churn by identifying the clients who want to leave
- increases sales by suggesting what the client wants to buy and determines how much they will buy
- identifies employees who are likely to leave the company
- predicts demand for resources, product, and inventory
- identifies the risk of breakdowns, failures, malfunctions, and errors

Nuclear Power Engineering
Researches for the nuclear industry are held in USTC "Technical diagnostics and reliability of nuclear and thermal power plants", headed by Yuri Yevgenyevich Karyakin, Professor of the Department of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics.
Resonance Enhanced Drilling, RED
The Department of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics and The University of Aberdeen have been collaborating on the topic of rock massif destruction under the action of resonance drilling since 1999. Read more...
Employees of the Department of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics developed an original technique of modeling the formation and development of cracks in solids, based on the method of particle dynamics. This method was used to describe such processes as:
- Percussive drilling
- Spall fracture
- Hydraulic fracturing
- Punching of a deformable barrier with a striker
- Formation and development of fatigue cracks
Key publications on this topics are provided here.
