Anniversary of famous Russian engineer Shukhov marked by scientific conference

"Engineering Art in the Development of Civilisations" - and the presentation of the book "The First Engineer of Russia," devoted to Vladimir Shukhov, took place on Tuesday in the Moscow Bauman State Technological University. This event marked the 150th anniversary of the birth of the outstanding Russian engineer, the author of the first Russian steam-atomising burner and the famous TV tower in Shabolovka street.

The forum is attended by leading engineers from many countries, including Germany, Austria, India and China. The main task of the conference, according to its organisers, is to show the state of Russian engineering today and the latest projects of Russian and foreign scientists and engineers.

The book about Shukhov has been written by his granddaughter - architect Yelena Shukhova. She believes that the book is not only to tell in detail about her famous grandfather but also to attract public attention to his works, some of which are in bad state now.

Vladimir Shukhov was born in 1853 and studied at the Moscow Technological University. A steam-atomising burner was his diploma work. Shukhov became famous in 1896 when his inventions, in particular, steam boilers and the world's first hyperboloid tower were demonstrated at the All Russian Art and Industrial Exhibition in Nizhny Novgorod. The hyperboloid tower became a prototype of the tower in Shabolovka street which was opened in 1922 and was used for radio and then television broadcasting.
