VYACHESLAV SOLOVEV
First Deputy Director
RUSSIANFEDERAL NUCKEAR CENTER-THE ALL-RUSSIANT RESEARCH INSTITUTER OF EXPERIMENTAL PHYSICS

In 1971 V.P. Solovyev graduated with distinction from the Physics faculty of the Kazan State University and since 1972 he has linked his work with the Russian federal nuclear centre the Russian Scientific Research Institute of Experimental Physics.
V.P. Solovyev is a major specialist in the field of developing nuclear weapons who has taken part in underground tests of nuclear weapons and has made a significant contribution to the creation of installations for localising explosions. The main areas of V.P. Solovyev’s work are: creating new physical models for analytical modelling of physical processes, developing special products, and ensuring safety during on-site testing of products.
V.P. Solovyev provided scientific supervision for, and was directly involved in, the development of the new programme complexes DRAKON, DANCO, RATEG and TREK-FIRE, which were designed to calculate the dynamic deformation of solid bodies and complex structures during explosions of conventional and nuclear weapon and in the thermo-hydraulic systems of reactor installations, and also to analyse hydrogen safety and to calculate dynamic processes in structures. These complexes were handed over to design and planning organisations and were used, among other things, as a validation of safety in the nuclear power plant built in Lianyungang (China).
From 1992 V.P. Solovyev played an active part in the international activity of the Russian Scientific Research Institute of Experimental Physics. The main areas of his work were: researching the fundamental properties of materials under dynamic load, and also developing blast-proof chambers. A basalt plastic blast-proof chamber created under his leadership for disarming terrorist devices was supplied to the USA.
In recent years V.P. Solovyev has provided leadership of theoretical analytical groundwork on ensuring the reliability and safety of nuclear weapons and has been engaged in addressing issues related to improving nuclear weapons in the context of the Nuclear Test Ban Treaty. He is also ensuring implementation of the Russian President’s Programme on “Developing supercomputers and grid technologies and developing Russian software in the interests of civil industries”.
