Therapeutic Mud of the Caucasian Dead Sea

Therapeutic Mud of the Caucasian Dead Sea

This is a unique source of health — Lake Tambukan.

During the WWII, wounded soldiers liberated Pyatigorsk from the Nazis, applied  on a bandage a layer of mud from this lake. Today, manufacturers of cosmetics are looking at the lake at their point of view: in Tambukan mud, they say, one can find youth and forget about the shortcomings of the skin.

Healing — if not invaluable — mud they compare to the famous Dead Sea mud. When a couple of years ago, the lake overflowed its banks and washed away the track “Caucasus” – the main road on the Russian south, no alarm sounded about a strip of asphalt, even federal one. Environmentalists were worried about the unique properties of the pond and mud at the bottom.

A Tour to the Aeroclimatic Camera

A Tour to the Aeroclimatic Camera

Now I would like to write about one of the greatest facilities of the ZIL plant. It is an aeroclimatic camera.

 

An aeroclimatic complex is a unique facility that simulates various weather conditions for vehicle testing. Environmental testing and research were conducted in a wide range of ambient temperatures from -60°C to +65°C with regulation of the object air-flow speed of 0:150% km/h, at a relative humidity of 0:100%.
