Scientific researches in the field of steel engineering
The institute is a leading research institution in the field of steel engineering. Among the research organizations according to State Certifying Commission the Institute comes under the heading of institutions, which may determine and influence on State policy in science and technology.

The problem of complete automation of design works and research activities is solved successfully. Development and application of modern computation complexes enables the Institute's specialists to perform an analysis of the projects of any complexity and to carry out extraordinary researches, regarding statics of the structures, dynamic effects, reliability under live loads, elastically plastic behavior of the material, optimal designing, non-linear guyed systems, unification and standardization of the members, development of range of products and so on.
All engineers of the Institute are equipped with modern PCs that allow to automate efficiently the design, calculation and graphic operations and other fields of the Institute's activities. At the same time not only the program complexes, which were developed by our specialists, such as: OSKAR, PARSEK, SUDM, CETI, PROMET, are used, but other widely known design and design-computational complexes, such as ACAD (AUTOCAD), ARCHICAD, SCAD, LIRA, ROBOBAT and others are applied as well.

Regarding problems of NPP of Ukraine under operation and construction:

development of programs dealing with technical condition assessment and reassignment of service life of building constructions concerning NPP: foundations, walls and floors at reactor department, reactor shaft, cooling pond with all structures and members, including rack systems;
development of programs dealing with technical condition assessment and reassignment of service life of public-purpose buildings, containing systems of primary importance for safety.

Scientific schools

Scientific schools acknowledged both in Ukraine and abroad have been created in the Institute within existence period and in course of work. Here are examples:

theory of analysis and design of linearly extended and large-span spatial structural constructions;
optimization and automation of analysis and design of spatial constructions, buildings and structures;
theory of structural reliability;
theory of high-rise installations design and analysis;
shape-formation of constructions.
