For a long time Leningrad has been known for its advanced traditions in the field of metallurgy and, first of all, in the physical metallurgy. Closely associated with Leningrad (Saint Petersburg) are the very beginning of the scientific activity of the prominent Russian metallurgist P.P.Anosov, the names of P.M. Obukhov, “the Founding Father of the Russian metallography” D.K.Chernov and a great number of some other scientists.
Therefore, it was no mere chance that it was recognized as expedient to establish the first in the country comprehensive designing institute exactly in Leningrad.

The founding of the Institute was inspired by the necessity to solve urgently the questions of the balanced development of the productive forces of the country in the area of heavy industry. The adopted course toward the industrialization required the high rates of the metallurgical industry growth.
