Welcome to the IPME RAS!

IPME RAS is located in St. Petersburg, Russia's «Venice of the North». Our city ranks high on the list of European destinations and attracts people from different countries by its exciting history, cosmopolitan atmosphere and stunning architecture. St. Petersburg is also a major industrial center with some of the finest universities and research institutes in the country.

Established in 1987, IPME RAS is one of the main centers of theoretical engineering in Russia. The Institute's research area is reliability of machines and constructions working at extreme conditions. The main fields of interest of the Institute are mechanics, thermodynamics and kinetics of transient processes in nanomaterials and materials, phase transitions and defects of structure, dynamics of vibratory, wave and vibroimpact processes, theory and methods of control processes in complex physical and technical systems, nano- and microtribology etc.

The Institute has long-term international relations with the first-rate scientific centers of Europe, USA, Middle East, India, China and former USSR. Our researchers have international working experience. Some of them are members of the editorial boards of world famous journals devoted to mechanical engineering and material science. Many of them are members of the scientific committees of international conferences.

We invite everyone who is interested in any forms of scientific collaboration.
