Grdina Yuri Vyacheslavovich 

Soviet metal scientist, doctor of technical sciences. 
Born in Vilna and in the same year he was taken away by his parents to Siberia. 
In 1920, as a magnetologist of the expedition of the Tomsk Institute of Siberian Research, a very young man Grdin participated in a topographical survey of the coast of the Gulf of Ob. 
At the end of the Tomsk Institute of Technology, Grdin was actively involved in the organization of the Siberian Institute of Metals. He was deputy director, technical director, in 1937 he was elected head of the department of metallurgy and heat treatment of metal. The authority of Grdina as a scientist was so great that in 1935 he was awarded the degree of candidate of technical sciences without defending a thesis. 
During the war, Grdina developed a special technology for processing rails, through which they became much stronger and more durable. Under the leadership of Grdina, an experimental melting and rolling of the first ingot of armor steel was carried out. On the experience of this melting and using the instructions of the Izhora plant, the first instructions for rolling, slow cooling, stripping and heat treatment of tank armor were created.
