The Kazan State University of Architecture and Engineering’s research has real industry world impact beyond academia. We are at the forefront of the search for solutions to predominatly most pressing problems of our region, the Republic of Tatartstan. In the field of research and innovations our University collaborates closely with the local Ministry of Construction, Architecture and Housing and Communal Services and the Ministry of Transport and Road Infrastructure.
KSUAE has such slogan: Not everyone is given to live so generously, to gift cities to the people. Our research proves this slogan.
The main trends of research and innovative activities of our University are:
- Building structures;
- Applied geomechanics in construction;
- Construction materials;
- Nanotechnology in construction;
- Architecture, urban planning and design;
- Engineering systems and ecology in construction and housing and public utilities;
- Road construction;
- Economics and business management in construction and housing and utilities.
For all these trends we are aware of the challenges which the Republic of Tatarstan faces and ways of solving them. Our ideas are agreed with the Ministry of Construction, Architecture and Housing and Communal Services of the Republic of Tatarstan, and the Ministry of Transport and Road infrastructure of the Republic of Tatarstan.
In the fields of architecture, urban planning and design our academic staff are authors of the following architectural projects:
- Kul Sharif mosque (Kazan city),
- Sports palace “Basket-Hall” (Kazan city),
- Hotel and trade and entertainment complex “Korston” (Kazan city),
- design solutions for development of Kazan Kremlin ensemble, Old-Tatar District, Admiralteyskiy District, Sviyazhsk and Bulgar Settlements and other historical zones of the Republic of Tatarstan.
Structural designers and researches of KSUAE design and calculate the most complex structures and systems such as the Terminal 1A of the Kazan International Airport, the structures of the shopping and entertainment centre "MEGA Kazan", the structures of the “Orgprodukty” plant of the «Kazanorgsintez» company, the foundation base for the Ak Bars Arena (former named Kazan Arena) stadium and temporary roof for the Ak Bars Arena stadium for the 2015 World Water sports Championship, the steel structures covering of the sports complex "Academy of Tennis".
The most significant research works which are being implemented in the field of construction materials are: development and production of low-water requirement cements; high performance sandy concrete for manufacturing of reinforced concrete structures on the base of JSC "Kamgesenergostroy" (city of Naberezhnye Chelny); high performance fibre-reinforced concrete for manufactorimg of reinforced concrete blocks for main line tunnels of Kazan Underground on the base of “Kazmetrostroy” company and other.
In the field of road construction in collaboration with The Ministry of Road Transport following aspects are implemented: the structures of rural roads using local reinforced soils and processed low strength crushed stone; asphalt concrete based on polymer-bitumen binders; new effective bridge and overpass span constructions on traffic interchanges using pre-stressed polymer-composite reinforcement.
The most significant developing in the field of engineering systems and ecology in construction are: energy-saving small-scale sectioned coil heat-exchangers with spring-winded ducts and “confusor-diffuser” tubes; new technologies of air humidification in ventilation and conditioning systems based of porous fan atomizers; new progressive reagentless systems of water treatment using electro-neutralization method
In the field of construction sector and housing and utilities management KSUAE researchers collaborating with the Ministry of Construction, Architecture and Housing and Communal Services of the Republic of Tatarstan developed “The Program of Tatarstan construction sector sustainable development”; the program “The development and arrangement of production forces of the Republic of Tatarstan on the basis of cluster approach for 2020-2030 years” (Construction industry and building material industry).
