General Information

The National Youth Aerospace Education Centre was founded in 1996 at the initiative of the National Space Agency of Ukraine with support of the leading space industry enterprises of Ukraine. Its primary goals are:

  • the practical implementation of the State’s youth policy
  • realization of the modern system of personnel provision to the spacerocket and aviation industries
  • search for and attraction of the talented youth to the aerospace science
  • establishment of appropriate conditions for intellectual enrichment of young generation of Ukraine
  • educational activity and popularization of knowledge in science, space, and national achievements in the space-rocket and aviation areas

Primary scientific directions

The Center possesses all the necessary infrastructure and material resources for research. It undertakes research in many areas including, the design of materials on the basis of metal powders and development of technologies for their production, in cooperation with Dnipropetrovsk National University. In order to satisfy the needs of mechanical engineering sector, the center specialists developed technologies of manufacturing constructional, antifriction, electro-technical products on the basis of iron and copper powders with high mechanical properties.

Distinctive competencies

  • Technology for manufacturing materials on the basis of stainless steel powder (for example, type Cr (13... 18 … 18) – Ni (9 … 15)) for functioning in the corrosive medium, under high and cryogenic temperatures, and in the wear conditions. High density and wear resistance of the products is developed by way of solution-phase sintering with special alloys. Those materials are used for manufacturing of frictional couples (friction factor of not more than 0.02... 0.03), parts of the locking and adjustment fittings used in the space-rocket equipment, gas - and oil pipelines, chemical, and foodstuff industries.
  • New antifriction materials on the basis of copper-graphite compositions with a heterogeneous structure that are able to operate at a wide range of the sliding speeds (from 1 km/s to 50,000 km/s) and under heavy conditions (vibratory impact, corrosive environment, low temperatures, etc.). These materials have successfully proved their performance in the space-rocket equipment and in electric transport machine building. Current collectors’ resistance has grown 15 times in comparison with graphitic ones, which are used at present while decreasing wear of the overhead wire system.
  • Development of technologies for manufacturing water sprayed powders of the quick cutting steel and tools made of them. The material utilization ratio is increased to 0.80 instead of traditional 0.28...0.40, wear resistance of the cutting tools is heightened 1.5... 2 times.
  • Developed production technologies of a new class of materials – carbide- steel, which combine hardness and wear resistance of the hard alloys with durability and viscosity of quick-cutting steel.
  • New technologies of manufacturing powders of aluminium and its alloys by dispersing melts with high pressure water, as well as technologies of the powders processing into the products. The core of ecologically clean technologies complex is an effect of superfast crystallization, which implements during dispersion. Powder detail material match the mechanical properties of the forged materials produced of this same alloy.
  • Porous filters and aerators on the basis of powder corrosion-proof steel, nickel, copper, which may be reused after regeneration.

Information summary about radiation-protection materials and products

Containers for radioactive waste storage

Containers are intended for collection, transportation, storage, and burial of toxic and radioactive waste of low and medium radiation level. Containers are designed for the storage period of not less than 300 years. Results of the products functioning in conditions of solar radiation, oxygen, high humidity etc. revealed no traces over a 30 year period. The containers in sea water during five years showed decrease of the tensile strength and compression strength by less than 10 %, elasticity module - less than by 6 %.

Radiation protection screen

The radiation protection screen on the fiberglass basis is intended for manufacturing of protection equipment in the form of hard screens, boards, external and internal coverings elements, fast erected building structures. Material radiation resistance study accomplished in the facilities of National Science Center of KhPTI with employment of the electron linear accelerator proved that operational properties of the material sustain for at least 300 years (absorbed dose is 10 МR). Upon request of the customer, plates of this material can be made of different size.

Personal protection equipment (PPE)

The center presents samples of radiation protection film and modified polyvinylchloride applied on the synthetic fabric. Weight of 1м2 film of 0.5 mm thickness is 1.5 kg. Certain types of the protection gear may be manufactured with use of one film layer and additional protection of the gonadal areas or certain personal protection means may be manufactured of several film layers.
