Evmeniy Grigorievich Konovalov (19.09.1914, v. Chernorechka, Gorki district, Mogilev region – 16.06.1974), a scientist in the field of mechanical engineering. Academician of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus (1969; Corresponding Member since 1967), Doctor of Engineering Sciences (1962), Professor (1964). Honored Worker of Science and Technology BCCR (1972).
Scientific research are devoted to the development of new methods for metal processing, the creation of metalworking equipment and tools, and the study of the strength of metals and alloys in an ultrasonic field. Created and developed a new direction in metal cutting - rotational cutting and proposed a method for processing hard-to-deform materials and alloys at low temperatures in vacuum when applying an ultrasonic field, a number of other methods for processing metals using mechanical, acoustic, magnetic and electric energy for forming. Identified patterns of influence of the ultrasonic field on the processes of stretching, torsion, bending and creep of metals and alloys. He proposed the theory of shaping, on the basis of which he developed a classification of various technological processes of metalworking.
Author of more than 350 scientific papers, incl. 8 monographs, 118 inventions.
State Prize of the BSSR in 1974 for research, development and implementation of high-performance processes and tools for size-finishing and strengthening processing of machine parts by surface plastic deformation.
