Department short description

Общая

Our team – research-and-academic staff of the Department of Physics-and-Mathematics and Engineering Disciplines of the Faculty of Equipment and Technical Service of KSUFTT

RTD activity at the Department of Physics-and-Mathematics and Engineering Disciplines of the Faculty of Equipment and Technical Service of KSUFTT

Department provides both highly an academic and professional education and also a high-quality research activities.

RTD work.

RTD work  carried out in the framework of the 2 (two) scientific schools, which are headed by leading scientists of the Department:

1. Scientific school  The Scientific Research of Drying of Food Raw Materials. Scientific supervisor – Dr. Mykola Pogozhykh, TechSciD, Prof.

 Priority areas of research, actively conducted by scientists of the Department, are also:

1. Investigation of the structure and the moisture in the food and feed products by various methods:

  • EPR method (method of electron paramagnetic resonance molecular-kinetic, quantum level)
  • NMR (nuclear magnetiс resonance  method – molecular-kinetic, quantum level)
  • with viscometry method (thermodynamic level)
  • with calorimetry method  (thermodynamic level)
  • with microscopic method (thermodynamic level)
  • with molecular dynamics method (the molecular-kinetic method, theoretical modeling).

2. Scientific bases of effective management of techniques and technology of drying mixed heat supply (MHS) of food raw materials.

3. Improvement of physical methods of analysis of structural and mechanical properties of the gels at various technologies and terms of its receipt.

4. Research of energy efficiency mechanical and thermal processes of food production.

5. Research of heat and mass transfer processes and the physical characteristics of the heat dried products.
