TARASENKO LEONID PETROVYCH
Co-author of scientific and technical developments, recommendations, methods, technologies for work with aged asphalt concrete.
He made a great contribution to the development and improvement of roads in Donbas and contributed to the rise of scientific and technical development of the road industry.
PATH OF LIFE
Leonid Tarasenko was born on August 4, 1926 (Donetsk region).
In 1952 he graduated from the mechanical faculty of the Automobile Road Institute and obtained “Mechanical Engineer” specialty. After graduation he started his career at the enterprises of the road industry: “Yuzhvodstroy” Trust (1952-1956), Department of Transport of the Ministry of Coal Industry (1856-1957), Sovnarkhoz Transport Department (1958-1962), Regional Production Directorate of Construction and Operation of Roads (1986-1972)
In 1972 he defended his dissertation at the post-graduate courses of Kharkiv Automobile Road Institute and obtained the PhD degree.
In 1986 he was appointed on the position of the Director of our Institute, where he worked till 1994.
Leonid Tarasenko’s scientific activity, during the period of work in our Institute was devoted to the problems of reclaiming of aged asphalt concrete.
Leonid Tarasenko was a co-author of scientific and technical developments, recommendations, methods, technologies for working with aged asphalt concrete. The results of the researches allowed to perform work on the loosening and grinding of the upper layers of aged asphalt concrete pavement, generally, in a highly mechanized way. One of them, so-called "cold" method, was carried out on the basis of existing road construction machines with the subsequent transportation of asphalt scrap to the plants for recycling of aged asphalt concrete (when the whole process of loosening and grinding is performed at the ambient temperature).
Another “hot” method involves the thermal heating, milling of heated layers and transportation of asphalt scrap to recycling plants with its subsequent use as for the arrangement of foundations or roadsides, also as an active additive to the standard asphalt concrete, which is prepared again. But the main attention of Leonid Tarasenko, as a scientist, was directed to the method of thermal profiling, when there is a need to repair roads due to deformation of the upper layers of asphalt concrete pavements in the form of ruts, sagging, displacements, shallow pits, cracks, etc. The task was to reach the evenness of pavement without a significant increase of the solidity of pavement design. Thermal profiling method created the possibility to solve these types of repairs by thermomechanical way with hot reshaping of the repaired layer of asphalt concrete directly in the road pavement. He made a great contribution to the development and improvement of roads in Donbas and contributed to the rise of scientific and technical development of the road industry.
Awards: Order of Lenin (1971), Order of the Red Banner of Labor (1981), Order of “Badge of Honor”, “Honored Builder of Ukraine” title.
Leonid Tarasenko died on January 23, 2001.
