Large-span buildings and installations
The Institute has contributed considerably into designs of frameless folded buildings, which are the most effective type of light-weight metalwork.

A much used are designs for are types of buildings having 1236 m span made of light-weight metalwork, including quickly assembled and disassembled ones as well as designs of roof systems for civil and industrial buildings up to 100 m span, hangars, sports and enter-tainment facilities and special-purpose installations.

One of the Institute's activity trends is development and implementation of modern and economical types of constructions of large-span roof systems with the use of small element trusses, tethered and membrane constructions, spatial structures etc.

Special attention should be paid on designs of very important steelwork of large-span buildings, for instance, Great high-voltage room in Zaporozhie (span 60 m, height 60 m), the largest assembly shops in Feodosia (span 96 m, height 50 m provided with suspended hoisting cranes of load-carrying capacity up to 200 t). In addition the following projects are neces-sary to be mentioned: shipbuilding yards in Nickolayev (two spans by 48 m each, height 45 m), spans of hangar buildings within the range from 48 up to 136 m in airports Borispol, Donetsk, Nickolayev, Sheremetievo, Vnukovo, Kuibyshev, Yakutsk, Magadan, Tambov. There was designed and erected a large hangar building having span 108 m in Cuba.

Bridge building projects
The design of Navodnitsky bridge across the river of Dnieper in city Kiev (now-bridge named after Paton) has been carried out in tight creative cooperation with the Institute of Electric Welding and with Academician E. Paton personally. He was a pioneer in developing of an alternative of the all-welded superstructures of the bridge with application of solid-web main trusses.

Taking into consideration, that such technical solution was implemented in domestic bridge building industry for the first time, the decision was taken to investigate and to analyze new structural shape of the bridge, welded connections of main trusses junctions of transverse members, braces, roadway elements along with assurance of high reliability and durability during the bridge service life. With this object in view analysis and theoretical research works were performed with experimental tests of structural solutions in modifications of various welded connections and joints. An elaboration of welded field butt joints in solid-web main trusses and equipment for their automated welding with the use of killed well-welded steel intended for all-welded spanned buildings were pioneered.

Such approach when in creation of complicated significant projects the designers apply some theoretical and experimental investigations with the use of new structural shapes of welded structures, welded joints and connections, providing a reliable operation under low temperatures, dynamic and cyclic loads became traditional in practical activity of the Institute.

Among other bridge building projects the following projects are worthy of note: the suspended pedestrian bridge of 180 m span across the Dnieper river connecting Trukhanov Island in Kiev, the first in Kiev, cable-stayed bridge over the harbor having span 144 m; all-welded bridge across the river Smotrich in city Kamenets-Podolsky (150 m span), which was built with the pioneered use of high-strength steel and orthotropic plate on roadway.

Later on the Dneproges dam the bridges were constructed with light-weight curvilinear orthotropic plate (bridge over forebay, trestle above locks). Owing to this design the carriage way has been extended twice as much at the expense of very interesting technical solution of anchor fixing of cantilevers into the dam body.

In addition the projects should be pointed out: the suspended pedestrian bridge across the river Teterev in city Zhitomir having main span 160 m, abutment spans of 62 and 75 m; remarkable pedestrian bridge of 102 m length with one pylon across the river Uzh in city Korosten.

Taking into account many years' experience gained by the Institute in this field the type designs of pedestrian bridges 63 and 126 m have been developed. The superstructures are featured by high efficiency, manufacturability for production and erection.

Sheet constructions
The Institute has designed numerous complicated engineering structures for oil and gas pipelines tanks of various capacity for petroleum and petroleum products.

Of particular interest are the designs of reservoirs having large capacity (up to 75000 m3) with the inner surface made of modern synthetic materials, built in Odessa region, cities of Odessa and Feodosia.

The designs of blocks and stand-alone tower-type plants of various capacities for biological sewage treatment and additional treatment are very promising. These projects have been used in construction of urban sewage in cities of Saki and Stary Krym.

It might be well to point out the Institute's activity in designs of large capacity reservoirs. In 2003 for the first time in Ukraine for linear production and control station "Brody" the vertical metallic tank of 75000 m3 capacity with double wall, double vacuum bottom and floating roof has been designed. Such structure provides reliability in operation and environmental safety also.

In 2003 for the first time in Ukraine for linear production and control station "Brody" the reservoir of 75000 m3 capacity has been designed. This station is the unigue intermediate pumping plant at the Ukrainian section of "Druzhba" oil pipeline that provides transit pumping of petroleum through two routes of oil pipelines. "The Institute of Petroleum Transportation" was General Designer of this project, which has developed all parts except metalwork design, performed by OJSC "V. Shimanovsky UkrRDI steelconstruction" Institute, including the working documentation.

With the purpose to increase reservoir capacity some technical solutions have been developed as to substitution of six tanks PBC 5000 for new steel tanks of maximum capacity. This was done because of that fact, that having been operated under unusable conditions during a long-term period they became unuserable and and unmaintainable.

Considering the Customer's proposals and prospects to extend the existing station "Brody" a decision has been taken for development of contractor design for construction of one vertical metallic tank of 75000 m3 capacity with double wall, double vacuum bottom and floating roof. Such structure provides reliability in operation and environmental safety.

Civil and public-purpose buildings and structures
Along with the projects of industrial purpose the Institute took part in development of designs of load-carrying metalwork for large public buildings including the Palace "Ukraine" with large-span roof in the form of cross-shaped truss, the high-rise hotel "Kiev", National library named after Vernadsky, the House of Commerce, the Cultural Center "Ukrainian House". It was very sophisticated and creative task to develop design and construction of the monument "Motherland" at the Great Patriotic War Museum in Kiev. Two just mentioned projects were distinguished by high Governmental awards of Ukraine and USSR.

An important scientific trend in the Institute's activity is research and creation of new types of buildings and installations. There was established a complex research and design subdivision provided with experimental base, which devoted its forces on elaboration of new structural solutions regarding buildings made of light-weight metalwork characterized by high technological effectiveness in fabrication and erection, economy of materials and increase of aesthetical properties. New types of unified roof systems of buildings were elaborated on the basis of small element panel and strut frame systems with the wide use of thin-walled membranes having better indices than the existing ones. It opened up new possibilities for efficient development of industrial base in Ukraine in the sphere of design and construction of light-weight metal structures.

Nuclear power engineering projects
Ukraine is among the countries, where nuclear power engineering plays an important role. Approximately 50% of all power capacities in our country are covered with the aid of nuclear reactors. Ukraine holds the eighth place in the world and the fifth place in Europe on existed number of reactors and their total capacity.

With an expected service life amounting to 30 years 12 from 13 power units of Ukrainian NPP provided with water-cooled power reactors should be put out of operation within period of 20102019, which will require rather considerable means. That's why a task aimed at prolongation of projected service life of power units and assurance of their safe industrial operation in the future is of primary importance. Our Institute in cooperation with other organizations has developed standard programs for technical condition assessment and reassignment of building service life at some nuclear power plants in operation.

Our Institute in cooperation with other organizations has elaborated a variety of standard programs for technical conditions assessment and reassignment of service life of the most important building structures used in power units.

As the author of load-carrying structures of the existing "Shelter" facility the Institute took participation in realization of programs aimed at Chernobyl NPP consequence mitigation and transformation of the "Shelter" facility into environmentally safe system.

Regarding the problems of NPPs being in operation and under construction in Ukraine and Russia the following scope of research works has been carried out including such topics:
standard technical condition assessment program and reassignment of structural service life for NPP. Reactor shaft;

standard technical condition assessment program and reassignment of structural service life for NPP. The foundations, walls and floorings at reactor department;

Communication facilities
The specialists of the Institute have made a remarkable advancement in design of all-welded high-rise TV towers in many cities of USSR. An important contribution into achievement of such success was made on the basis of creative tight cooperation with the Welding Institute named after Paton attached to the Ukrainian National Academy of Sciences. New structural shapes of high-rise installation convenient in fabrication and erection have been elaborated. Standard flange joints resulted in steel and labor overexpenditure were replaced by welded joints, connecting the elements. The first all-welded TV tower 317 m high was built in Leningrad according to design and under an active cooperation and supervision fulfilled by both Institutes mentioned above.

Many technical ideas were implemented during design and construction of TV towers in Yerevan and Tbilisi.

The creation of Kiev TV tower constructed with the use of gradual rising method with automatic welding of tubular chords made of high-strength steel was distinguished by the Ukrainian SSR State Award.

EXHAUST VENT STACKS AND CHIMNEYS
Rational structures of chimneys and towers 20 m 420 m high
Among high-rise installations designed by the Institute it is worthy of note a variety of chimneys and exhaust tower-stacks for metallurgical plants and chemical integrated works, powerful thermal electric generating plants, petroleum processing plants etc.

Latticed towers made of metal were used as the supporting structure for gas flues fixings. Many projects of chimneys have been elaborated with application of helicopter-aided erection.

According to assignment presented by organization "Teploproekt" the Institute within the span from 1965 till 1990 has developed a great number of designs for internal metalwork (gas flues, working platforms, stairs) used in reinforced concrete chimneys. Such projects have been implemented at the territory of former USSR and in many other countries.

At present some similar design concepts are in progress. Furthermore, the existing chimneys are at the stage of reconstruction, in particular at Kostroma Power Generating Plant, gas processing plant in Astrakhan, electric integrated iron-and-steel works in Stary Oskol, copper smelter plant of Norilsk mine integrated iron-and-steel works.

Sporting facilities
Participation of Ukraine in remarkable sporting events and achievements of Ukrainian sportsmen and teams at International and European competitions puts in the forefront the problem regarding construction of the Ukraine's facilities, meeting the modern world-level requirements.

Noteworthy in this field are outstanding designs such as "Yubileiny" Stadium in city Sumy awarded by the State Prize of Ukraine in 2004. Also it should be noted the athletic and sporting complex "Olymp" in city Yuzhny (near Odessa) distinguished by the State Prize in the field of architecture in 2006.

Particular emphasis has been placed on const-ruction of football stadiums. Probable participation of Ukraine in European championship in 2012 obliges the leading football clubs to ensure creation or reconstruction of the stadiums having 3050 thousand spectators capacity provided with covered stands.

In 2004 in cooperation with the Ukrainian Academy of Architecture the Institute has carried out large-scale design works concerning technical proposals for reconstruction of the "Dynamo" Stadium in Kiev. This is the basic Stadium of the leading football club in Ukraine.

In 2006 the Institute has designed and erected the shed system over the stands of "Metallurg" Stadium in city Dnepropetrovsk.

The Institute performs scientific and technical supervision during construction of the "Shakhter" Stadium in city Donetsk performed by the Turkish Company "ENKA".
