报告人：Oleksandr Krukovskyi, Correspondent-member of National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine
Oleksandr Krukovskyi works at the Institute of Geotechnical Mechanics under the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine since he graduated from Dnepropetrovsk National University named by O. Gonchar in 1993. In 2005 he became the winner of the President of Ukraine Prize for young scientists. Since 2013 he is Corresponding Member of NAS of Ukraine (Mechanics).
The main directions of his scientific activities are to research a methodology for the calculation and optimization of parameters of anchor systems. He made a lot of theoretical and experimental studies to determine the effect of schemes of anchor rods on the efficiency of reinforced rock mass ceiling formed in the marginal rock of mining workings. Completed research allowed to discover the optimal parameters of anchor constructions, depending on the geological factors, mining conditions of drifting, use and operating conditions.
He was dispositioning authority in research work with the Ministry of Coal Industry of Ukraine on introduction of new technologies of anchor support at Ukrainian mines. On the basis of these researches sectoral standard were developed by the SSU 10. 1.05411357.010 "System of ensure reliable and safe operation of mining workings with anchor support. General technical requirements."
In addition, the scope of his research interests includes the research and using of advanced numerical methods for research the processes of deformation and fracture in rocks around mining workings and designing of support.
He is an author or co-author for more than 150 scientific articles. Based on these researches he received several national patents over the last 5 years. Since 2013 he is the deputy director of the MS. Polyakov Institute of Geotechnical Mechanics under the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine.
