The scientific and educational laboratory of tribodiagnostics of complex technical systems.
The fields of scientific activity: detection of mechanical, physical and chemical processes, which are accompanied by changes in the geometry and surface structure of friction nodes identified by modern diagnostic methods. Objects of research: – operational properties of lubricants; – creation and development of technology for the use of tri-reducing mixtures; – evaluation of anti-wear properties of new friction and dental materials; – determination of size and intensity of wear during operation of friction units without disassembly; – trouble-shooting of the technical state of transmission of aviation gas turbine engines, internal combustion engines, reducers, units of hydro- and pneumatic drives, large power devices – prevention of emergency wear of friction units – development of mobile acoustic emission systems for monitoring the technical condition and predicting the resource of complex tribo-technical systems.
Scientific laboratories on the basis of Institutes of Problems of Strength and Materials Science of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine.
The field of scientific activity: creation and testing of composite materials on the basis of refractory ceramic compounds, which do not contain shortage and cost components, with increased wear, heat and corrosion resistance. Application – increase of efficiency and restoration of details with operational damage, increase of the resource of trifles, increase of heat resistance, corrosion resistance. Use – for details of any configuration, which operate in conditions of shock loads, intense wear, in aggressive environments, as well as at high temperatures.
