The leading engineering university in the region is included in two international rankings: the Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2022 and the Moscow International Ranking “Three University Missions”.
When receiving potash fertilizers, millions of tons of solid salt waste are generated, which cause significant environmental damage. Scientists of the Perm Tech believe that they can become raw materials for the medical, food and household industries, as well as for oil refining and glass production if they will be processed in a proper way. Chemists have developed a technology that allows them to dispose this fertilizers safely, removing insoluble impurities. The method for processing salt waste has no analogues and there is no need in expensive reagents.
Young researchers from Perm Tech are developing a technology that will improve metals and alloys for the engineering and aerospace industries. The uniqueness of the development is that it will make it possible to change the properties of metals, economically using materials for coating sputtering.
A young researcher from the Perm Tech has developed an intelligent building image processing system that can determine the color patterns of architectural objects. The technology will help developers of apartment buildings integrate projects into the urban space more efficiently. The program has no analogues in Russia and in the world yet.
July 26,is the day when the whole world celebrates the day of Esperanto - the world's first artificial language, which was created at the end of the 19th century by the ophthalmologist Ludwik Zamenhof. Associate Professor of the Foreign Languages and Public Relations Department of the Perm Tech Larisa Belova explained if the mankind can switch to a single language or not.
Today, new composite materials are often used in construction, mechanical engineering and metallurgy. But their components, which protect buildings and structures from fire, can be toxic. Researchers from the Perm Tech have developed a unique building material that can prevent fires without harm to human health. The technology has no analogues in Russia yet.
On July 22nd there was the World Brain Day. Human intelligence is often compared to another complex system with enormous problem-solving capabilities - a digital computer. By the day of the brain, scientists from the Perm Tech explained the reason for creating artificial intelligence and what threats are being expected after its development.
The reserves of easy-to-reach oil in the world are decreasing, and more and more wells require additional technologies to extract tight reserves of oil One of these methods is the use of a heating cable to combat paraffin. Scientists of Perm Tech have created a mathematical model and a control algorithm based on it, which will allow this process to be carried out with minimal energy consumption. The development will help determine the most efficient production conditions and save the enterprise's funds.
In the world, about 90% of people suffering from malocclusion, and 40% are requiring orthodontic treatment. One of its causes can be bruxism, a neurological disease in which dental abrasion occurs due to teeth grinding. The bite can affect the shape of the cervical spine and the entire musculoskeletal system in general, which can be accompanied by pain. To solve this problem, doctors use Botox to reduce muscle tonus. Scientists of Perm Tech are developing a software package that will predict how the shape of the face will be changed after introducing medication into it. The technology will allow doctors to calculate the required amount of Botox in advance.
