The Silver Medal of the 39th International Exhibition of Inventions of Geneva 2011
awarded to a project jointly developed by
the Institute of Mechanics-BAS, the Institute of Information and Communication Technologies-BAS and the Technical University of Sofia
The 39th International Exhibition of Inventions of Geneva was held 6-9 April 2011 in Geneva, Switzerland and attracted participants from across the world. A large number of innovative projects, ideas, products and patents were presented at the show. Among them was a Bulgarian project “Theoretical and Experimental Investigation of the Combined Impact Effect”. The team included Prof. D.Sc. Valentin Abadjiev and Assoc Prof. Dr. Clementine Mladenova from the Institute of Mechanics-BAS, Department “Mechanics of Discrete Media”, as well as researchers from the Sofia Technical University and colleagues from the Institute of Information and Communication Technologies-BAS, Department “Incorporated Intelligent Technologies” headed by Assoc. Prof. Dimitar Karastoyanov. We are proud to announce that the project was awarded the 39th International Exhibition of Inventions of Geneva Silver Medal. The object of study is a high-speed stamping press equipped with a rocket engine with controllable traction and switch on and off. Gravity combined with the additional force applied by the rocket engine facilitates the process, thus improving its parameters (impact time, energy consumption, production costs etc.) and increasing the pressed material/product density. The device can be applied in technological processes that require large loads - fabrication of gearboxes for sports cars, for instance. The stamping press can also be used for pylon hammering (i.e. for non-vertical hammering of bridge pylons) and for organic or metal waste compaction. The study was sponsored by the National Fund “Scientific Research”, Project “Theoretical and Experimental Investigation of the Combined Impact Effect”.
