BORYS SAMOILOVYCH RADOVSKYI
Author of numerous fundamental and applied scientific works.
He is a brilliant designer and an outstanding scientist in the field of mechanics of road construction materials and road pavement structures.
WAY OF LIFE
Born May 26, 1938 in Kyiv in the family of a civil engineer. He graduated with distinction from school and in 1955 entered the evening department of Kyiv Automobile and Road Institute (CADI) (now National Transport University). In the second year he was switched to the daytime form of education of the road-building faculty and graduated from the Institute in 1961 and received a diploma in "Traffic Engineer". He started his first scientific research in his student years.
After graduating from KADI, he worked as an engineer of Road-Building trust №1 (Kyiv), where he was engaged in the design and construction of reinforced concrete bridges for subway and highway across the Dnipro river in Kyiv. In 1966, he defended his Candidate's thesis on the subject: “The stress of non-rigid road pavements with intermediate layers of weakly bonded granular materials.” Candidate's thesis was devoted to the study of the stress state and deformations of layers of road structures in the conditions of intermediate granular layers.
From 1966 to 1986 Borys Radovskyi worked in our Institute. Since 1971, he headed the Laboratory of Road Construction and Road Pavement Calculation, and in 1972, he received the scientific title of Senior Researcher. During his work in the SE “DerzhdorNDI” B. Radovskyi was engaged in the construction of the ring stand, which is one of the best for research of road pavements in conditions close to natural. Later, B. Radovskyi headed the Institute research for the development of methodology for testing road pavement structures, which became the basis for upgrading the ring stand. It is an interesting fact that after visiting the institute and inspecting the ring stand, road workers from France developed at their institute (Nantes) a similar research area, which is still successfully operating.
During the years of work in SE “DerzhdorNDI” under the leadership of B. Radovskyi scientific research was carried out to study the stress and displacements arising under the action of dynamic loading; to analyze the effect of repeated loading on the fatigue of the materials of the road surface layers; experimental data were obtained on the stress-strain state of the road surface under the action of various vehicles. All these studies have become the basis for practical recommendations aimed at improving the methods of road pavement design and calculation and are executed in the form of normative and technical documents (Instructions, recommendations, methods, etc.). All these years of research by B. Radovskyi became the basis for his doctoral thesis and the theme "Theoretical foundations of design and calculation of road pavememnt on the impact of the dynamic loads", which he defended in 1983 at the Moscow Automobile and Road Institute.
From 1986 to 1995 B. Radovskyi worked as a professor at the Department of Road-Building Materials and Chemistry of the National Transport University and continued to be engaged in research work and implementation of scientific results in practice.
B. Radovskyi trained 12 candidates of sciences and 2 doctors of sciences. Among them there is an employee of our Institute, Candidate of Technical Sciences - S. Holovko, who is a leading researcher of the Department of Regulatory and Technological Support of Road Works.
Since 1996, he has lived and worked in the U.S. and continues to be intensively engaged in scientific activities - working with universities, design and manufacturing organizations. In addition, he actively writes articles in scientific publications, including our collection of scientific papers "Dorogi i Mosti" (Roads and Bridges).
