USSRI "UkrVODGEO," which in the late 30s there was a research hydrotechnical laboratory for the first time in the former Soviet Union conducted a study of anthracite as filter media in rapid filters, instead of sand.

Anthracite was used in a number of plants for water.Under the leadership of Dr. Father's VM was created by automatic hydraulic shock absorber "UkrVODGEO system" Papin to deal with hydraulic shocks, arising from the conduits for emergency shutdown of pumps.These were installed on gasilnye Odessa, Kharkov, Novocherkassk and other waterworks.

Institute carried out the work for large hydraulic projects, such as the Volga-Don canal im.Lenіna, Don main irrigation canal, and Dneprodzerzhinsk Stalingrad hydro, channel Seversky Donets - Donbas.In 1952 Stalingrad was built in the open space model of the Stalingrad hydroelectric scale of 1: 150 - "small hydro". Researcher, Laboratory of hydraulic structures, led by Dr. A. Tseitlin carried out the scientific and methodological guidance hydraulic studies on this model. To determine the roughness of the walls of the watercourses of the Institute scientists developed a new device fotoprofilograf PPG - 1, which made it possible to quantify the roughness of the walls of the watercourses.

In the 50th years of engineering hydraulics laboratory of the institute has been studying methods of mounting slopes of hydraulic structures from the effects of water, methods of increasing the core-cooling ponds and hydraulic study of the issues of variable mass. During this time, scientists of the Institute published 40 scientific papers, which made a number of new innovative solutions for engineering hydraulics.

On the recommendations of the institute in 50th years of the construction of new water intake scoop on the river. Angara, as well as sea water intakes on the Black and Caspian Seas. Institute has developed a fundamentally new system of cooling pond for the TPS-based Zmievskaya Lyman Lake with the water intake at the center of the reservoir, which allowed the station to increase capacity to 1.5 million kW.

In the late 50s - early 60s UGNII "UkrVODGEO" doing work to protect water pipes from the pressure of hydraulic shocks, developed new models of the radial settling tanks. The staff of the laboratory hydraulic concrete work has been done to develop new formulations of concrete, and also developed methods for automating the manufacture of concrete products.

Among the papers that served as the laboratory of hydraulic structures in the 60th years, occupy a significant place of work related to construction hydromechanization soil structures. The scientists of this laboratory, a special design of the drainage device with a vacuum inside, which can be used at high rates of soil namyvaniya structures to accelerate the water yielding capacity. Scientists industrial hydraulics laboratory proposed a new type of cooling pond, which was used in the construction of industrial waste storage, operating in a circular pattern, which greatly improves the efficiency of the cooling pond (from 45% to 85%).
