Presentation of scientific school:

During the period of the school existence from 2009 till 2014 the team developed cement concrete compositions modified by the dispersions of multi-wall carbon nanotubes providing the durability increase up to 40%, freeze-thaw durability increase of 2 stages and double water penetration increase (journal “Construction Materials”, № 2, 2013, № 2, 2015); the gas concrete composition was modified by the dispersions of carbon nanotubes increasing the durability by 30% and providing heat conductivity decrease by 20 % (journal “Intelligent Systems in Production”, № 1, 2013, № 1-2, 2014); the composition of paint coating modified by carbon nanotubes to protect buildings, which decreases electromagnetic emission level by 40% was developed (in journal “Construction Materials”, № 2, 2013); the compositions of compound gypsum materials modified by ultra- and nanodispersed systems improving their physical-mechanical properties were developed (the results are represented in the monograph “Modification of structure and properties of constructional composites based on basis calcium sulfate”: monograph // edited by A.F. Buryanov. – Moscow, De Nova, 2012); the mechanical indexes of ceramic bricks of plastic molding through the modification of carbon nanotube dispersions (the journal “Constructional Materials”, № 4, 2013) were improved.

According to the research data for the last 5 years, the scientific school published about 120 works, 11 of them are in the database Scopus and 8 of them are in database Web of Science, 3 monographs; 3 patents, 2 of them have international importance and 1 utility patent. From 2010 till 2014 4 PhD students defended their theses successfully.
