Mechanical Engineering Research Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences (IMASH RAN) – is a respected both in Russia and abroad institution, that solves fundamental reserch problems in the field of machine science and engineering sciences in Russia. Discoveries made and solutions found in its walls, are being laid as cornerstones for the basic trends of domestic mechanical engineering. On these solutions and developments rests the future of most industries: machine-tool manufacture, agricultural, metallurgical, automotive, energy, petrochemical, aviation, space rocket, nuclear, defense and robotics engineering. Seven decades of its existence, the IMASH RAN always checked its course in the sphere of basic and applied research, to which the Institute addressed itself, alongside with the federal problems corresponding to the historical period in which the country was: industrialization, the victory in World War II or the development of entirely new equipment and technologies. The Institute continues to perform successfully its research activities at present as well.
The structure of IMASH RAN at present is as follows:
Below are enlisted the major modern research problems under development by the scientific staff of IMASH RAN in the field of machine science (mechanics of machines and technologies):
