Russia has created a dome made of composite materials for a temple in the Moscow region

The Interindustry Engineering Center (IEC) "Composites of Russia" of the Bauman Moscow State Technical University created the dome from composite materials for Vladimirskiy temple in Industriya settlement near Moscow, the press-service of IEC informed the project "Made in Russia".

The temple was almost completely destroyed in the revolutionary years, and parishioners came to the building, which had lost the main structural elements of the church, including the dome part. MRC staff initiated the reconstruction of the main decoration of the temple, making it from modern materials.

As the technologist of "Composite of Russia" Oleg Povolokin stated the obvious advantages of using of composite materials for the erection of nonstandard constructions is the weight of fiberglass dome as it is several times less than metal dome. It allows considerably reducing the load on the bearing structures of the building.

"Using modern materials, we have fully complied with all orthodox architectural canons and proportions in terms of geometry and elements of the "onion", which was very important for the ministers and parishioners of the Vladimir Church," he said.
