The student of the School of Energy & Power Engineering Dmitri Antonov has won the Yuri Maslyukov Fellowship, a former Vice Prime Minister of the Russian Federation. These individual fellowships are paid monthly additionally to the main ones for full-time students of the universities which train specialists for organizations of the defense industry. Annually, only five fellowships are allocated to all universities of the country.

Dmitri Antonov conducts experimental and theoretical research of macroscopic regularities of the evaporation of water droplets in high temperature gases.
The fellowship winner says: ‘At present, there is no absolutely reliable theory of heat and mass transfer processes at high temperatures, over 1000 K. It is related to the limited information data base, especially the experimental one. Therefore, it was believed that heat and mass transfer processes at high temperature are similar to those occurring at low temperatures. But our obtained results revealed that other physical processes take place at high temperatures.’
Practical data obtained will help in improving fire extinguishing and water thermal treatment.
Dmitri Antonov notes:
‘Thermal treatment technologies are expected to use in desalination plants for the defense industrial complex.’
This year Dmitri was also awarded with a medal of the Russian Academy of Sciences for a cycle of his scientific papers. Totally, in 2017 five students and young scientists of TPU have received RAS medals that ensured the first place among Russian universities to TPU.
