At the Naval Polytechnic Institute of the Military Educational and Scientific Center of the Navy “Naval Academy named after Admiral of the Fleet of the Soviet Union N.G. Kuznetsov” in St. Petersburg hosted a historic conference dedicated to the 100th anniversary of the Honored Worker of Science and Technology of the Russian Federation, Doctor of Technical Sciences, Professor, Captain 1st Rank Nikolai Muru.

The event was attended by representatives of the High Command of the Navy, students, relatives and followers of Nikolai Muru, command, veterans and cadets of the Naval Polytechnic Institute.

“Our generation studied on the textbooks of Nikolai Petrovich. Many remember his lectures and classes with warmth and gratitude. And for current shipbuilders, ship repairers, for cadets – future shipbuilders, officers of the Navy, it is simply necessary to know the theory of the ship, which was developed and taught by Nikolai Muru. We can say with confidence that the memory of such outstanding people as Nikolai Muru has served and will continue to serve the glorious cause of educating naval officers for decades to come. And his life, official and scientific activities will always be a worthy example for the cadets of the school,” said Vice Admiral Viktor Sokolov, head of the Naval Academy of the Navy, in his speech.

The reports presented at the conference were devoted to the life and scientific activities of Nikolai Muru. Particular attention was paid to the static theory of the unsinkability of the ship, which he developed. It was he who, as a result of his scientific and practical activities, presented a modern interpretation of the buoyancy, stability and unsinkability of ships. Nikolai Petrovich, in a strict classical sequence, built all the elements of unsinkability in a static formulation, linked them together, backed them up with carefully argued examples of the struggle for unsinkability in the domestic and foreign fleets.

The audience was most interested in the report of Aurelius Nikitsky, a participant in the lifting operation of the Novorossiysk battleship, in which Nikolai Muru acted as chief engineer – deputy commander of a special expedition specially created for this purpose, where he carried out the technical design of the ship lifting operation and the lifting of the battleship itself.

The whole life of Nikolai Petrovich was closely connected with the Higher Naval Engineering School named after F.E. Dzerzhinsky, which he graduated with honors in 1944, and where from 1950 until the last days he was engaged in scientific and pedagogical activities.

It is deeply symbolic that the conference was held in Nikolai Petrovich’s personal auditorium, opened at the school in 2018 as a sign of the deepest respect for the merits of the scientist.
