The Institute of Continuous Media Mechanics of the Ural Scientific Center of the USSR Academy of Sciences was established in accordance with the resolution of the Presidium of the USSR Academy of Sciences of 14 February 1980, No. 249 by reorganizing the Department of Polymer Physics of the UC USSR Academy of Sciences, which was established as an independent scientific institution on 1 July 1971 by the decision of the USSR Council of Ministers.

Currently, the institute includes 11 laboratories and 1 department.

In 2017, the Institute became part of Perm Federal Research Center UB RAS.

Director - Matveyenko Valery Pavlovich, Academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Doctor of Technical Sciences, Professor.

Main research fields:

  • Mathematical and physical modeling of the processes of deformation, destruction and anomalous behavior of solids taking into account temperature and time effects, chemical and phase transformations in materials, the appearance and development of defects.
  • Methods of numerical experiment in the mechanics of a deformable body and in the mechanics of liquids.
  • Problems of hydrodynamic stability and turbulence: forced currents, convection; physico-chemical hydrodynamics of polymers, suspensions and magnetic fluids.
