Project summary

The purpose of the project is writing of the monograph "Industrial application of explosions". The book contains the results of recent theoretical and experimental studies into the problems of explosive loading, basic explosive technologies, including the original authors' works. The problems of explosion applications and protection from explosive factors are also considered.

State of works

Explosive technologies, i.e. application of explosion in different branches of industry, have been placing an evident role for a long time when solving various complicated technical problems. The explosive technologies have become more important, as utilization and disarmament are conducted over the world.

Competence of participants

The author collective is headed by leading scientists in rheology of solids: doctor of technical sciences, professor, academician of Russian Academy of Rocket and Artillery Sciences Novikov S. A. (RFNC-VNIIEF) and doctor of technical sciences, professor, full member of Russian Academy of Rocket and Artillery Sciences Selivanov V. V. (BMSTU). Among the participants of the project there are many high skilled specialists of Gas Dynamic Division at RFNC.

Expecting results

The project will result in writing of the monograph "Industrial application of explosions" in Russian and English. The monograph considers physical basics of explosive technologies, questions of material treatment by explosion and application of explosions when pressing poured materials, dynamic synthesis of solids, when separating or fragmenting constructions and units of different purposes. The main attention will be paid to the methods of weakening and localizing of explosive effect, methods to calculate blasting chamber will be considered. The application of non-military (peace) nuclear explosions in science and industry is of considerable cognitive interest. The book is directed to students of institutes, post-graduates and scientific-technical industrial workers, who develop and apply explosive technologies.

ISTC Goals and Objectives

The given project completely meets the ISTC objectives: The project will allow

– the RFNC-VNIIEF's nuclear weapons scientists and specialists to redirect their skills toward peaceful activities using the gained knowledge and experience to work at the monograph;

– the integration of the RFNC-VNIIEF's scientists and specialists into the international scientific community by familiarizing the Russian specialists' experience and direct contacts at scientific and technical conferences.

Scope of Activities

The project implementation will involve the development of the monograph covering 300 pages and consisting of the introduction and 14 chapters with illustrations. While implementing the project, the following lines and stages of efforts are assumed:

1. Development of the schedule and layout for the monograph.
2. Preparing the manuscript of the monograph in Russian and English.
3. Preparing the electronic version of the monograph in Russian and English.
4. Elaborating reporting documents.

Role of Foreign Collaborators/Partners

Within the scope of activities under the project, the following cooperative efforts are assumed on conjunction with foreign institutes:

– information exchange during the course of project implementation;
– expert evaluation of the monograph's materials.

Technical approach and methodology

Systematization and analysis of main explosive technologies, developed and adapted for practice for the last years will be conducted. Necessary analysis to substantiate the efficiency of application both existing, and new explosive technologies will be performed.


The International Science and Technology Center (ISTC) is an intergovernmental organization connecting scientists from Kazakhstan, Armenia, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, and Georgia with their peers and research organizations in the EU, Japan, Republic of Korea, Norway and the United States.


ISTC facilitates international science projects and assists the global scientific and business community to source and engage with CIS and Georgian institutes that develop or possess an excellence of scientific know-how.
