|Vyatcheslav K. Yegupov,
Vyatcheslav Yegupov was the
director of research and scientific leader of the group from 1965 to 1997.
During these years he created the basis and new directions in the field of earthquake
engineering. He was one of the first who started research of earthquake resistance of
buildings taking into consideration three-dimensional work and wave processes. Works of
Yegupov V.K. formulated main regularities of three-dimensional deformation, developed
scientific basis of building design, and created models of interaction between a building
and a propagating seismic wave.
Thorough research in the field of decomposition of extensive set of equations allowed him
to create theory of simulation modeling of buildings. On the basis of this theory his
colleagues and followers created effective algorithms and program complex of
three-dimensional calculation of engineering structures "PRIS".
The technique of the multi-factor analysis of the most important buildings, created by
V.K.Yegupov, and program complex "PRIS" have been used for research of
earthquake resistance of the control unit of the Chernobyl Power Plant.
Prof. Yegupov is famous from four monographs and more than 100 articles published in CIS
and abroad. During a number of years Prof. Yegupov was the chairman of the national
committee of earthquake engineering in the Ukraine.
