DEPARTMENT OF CERAMICS AND GLASS

The Silicate Technology

The Silicate Technology Department was founded in 1953. Its organizer and the first head was the candidate of technical sciences, associate professor G.G. Beliaiev, who in 1961 defended his doctoral dissertation. He was a renowned scientist in the field of enamels and enamelling of metals.

In 1965-1966, the Department was headed by doctor of technical sciences, professor V.V. Tovarov, and then (until 1977) – by Doctor of Technical Sciences, Professor M.D. Shcheglova.

By 1977, 1792 specialists were trained at the Department, including 713 – on technology of binder materials; 631 – on technology of ceramics and refractories; 217 – on glass and silicate technology; 231- on technology of enamels and enamelling of metals.

In 1977, the Department of technology of silicates was divided into two ones: the Department of chemical technology of ceramics and glass, which was led by the doctor of technical sciences, professor, Ya.I. Bilyi, and the Department of Chemical Technology of Binding Materials, which was led by Doctor of Technical Sciences, Professor, Yu.D. Barinov.

During the period of 1978-2010, the Department of Chemical Technology of Ceramics and Glass prepared more than 1900 engineers-technologists, including the technology of ceramics and refractories – 1170; the technology of glass and sylals – 480; the technology of enamels and protective coatings – 300.

Since the foundation of the Department of silicates technology, a research laboratory for metal enamelling has been organized on it, the only one in Prydniprov’ia.

Under the direction of Professor G.G. Beliaiev, scientific staff, teachers and students worked on the creation of embossed and little boron silicate enamels. Particular attention was paid to the study of soil little boron enamels and methods of preparing the surface of steel under enamelling in order to improve the quality of products and reduce the cost of scarce at that time of the storm. The performed experimental and theoretical studies created the basis for a quick and effective solution to the problem of replacement in the silicate enamels of the value import boom on domestic materials – Danuburite and Dotolite concentrates. Synthetic enamels were tested on the Zaporizhzhya Metalwork, Novomoskovsk Tube, Dneprovsky Machine-Building and many other factories. The best enamels were included in the Gosstandart and are currently used at many enterprises in the CIS countries.

The results of scientific research in the field of the theory and practice of enamelling steel products of various purposes were then summarized and included in the dissertation doctor’s works of G.G. Beliaiv, Yu.D. Barinov, Ya.I. Bilyi and Ph.D. theses N.P. Smokots, SM Ponomarchuk, E.M. Sardak, V.D. Savchenko, OI Kosenko, T.O. Shevchenko, V.V. Koleda, V.I. Holeus, M.Ya. Belomeri, OI Bondar, O.S. Yeskova, V.M. Matvienko, AG Akhmetshina, AP Kozlova, V.I. Khudyakova, O.P. Ryzhova, V.I. Strelnikova S.Yu. Naumenko, T.I. Nagorna, etc.). From this scientific direction more than 500 articles were published and more than 100 author’s certificates and patents for inventions were received. Today, this direction continues to be actively developed by Doctor of Technical Sciences, Professor Bilyi Ya.I., under whose guidance students and postgraduates work.

The second scientific direction in the field of glass and sticks was formed and began to develop under the guidance of a candidate of technical sciences, associate professor, and then Doctor of technical sciences M.D. Shcheglova with the active participation of associate professors SI Maximovich, I.M. Dvornichenko, O.P. Suslova O.V. Nosenko, etc. According to the research results in the field of synthesis of glasses and glass-crystalline materials (sits) with the use of industrial waste M.D. Shcheglova defended her doctoral dissertation in 1979. Under her leadership 10 candidate dissertations were defended, 112 articles were published, 22 copyright certificates were received. Today, this direction is being developed under the direction of Doctor of Technical Sciences, Professor Holeus V.I. The results of scientific research included in the candidate’s theses N.Yu. Ilchenko, O.V. Karasik, IA Makhovskaya, OA Amelina.

Another scientific branch, the youngest in age, began to be formed in the 1990s under the direction of Y.I. Bilyi, who headed scientific work related to the production of technical oxygen-free ceramics, porcelain articles and coatings for them. In recent years, this direction continued to be developed by leading researcher Kolieda V.V. and researcher Polozhai S.G., who organized a research laboratory for technology of ceramic and composite materials at the Department. Today, this area includes the research and development of low-temperature ceramics, the improvement and development of all types of building ceramics, high-strength and wear-resistant ceramics, high-performance insulation materials, etc. During this period, more than 40 articles were published, 5 author’s certificates and 15 patents of Ukraine were obtained for the invention, candidate’s theses were protected by Polozhai S.G., Koltsova Ya.I., Zaichuk O.V., Tkalia OI, Cheberko A.I., Mikhailuta O.S.

Today, 3 doctors of technical sciences, professors; 11 candidates of technical sciences, 7 of them associate professors fruitfully work in the structure of the Department.

The graduates of the Department are not only teachers and scientists working at the University, but also heads of enterprises and organizations: Yu.M. Antipov – Chief Engineer of OJSC “Novomoskovsk Tube Works”; AI Ternovy – chief of “Ukrgolovcement”; AG Danilchenko – Chief Engineer of JSC “Kherson Plant of Glassware”; VG Gomozova – Deputy Director of the Ukrainian State Glass Institute; VI Strelnikov – Deputy Director of OJSC “Keramikon” and many others.

Its first head until 1985, was Doctor of Technical Sciences, Professor Yu.D. Barinov.

Since 1985, the head of the Department was the candidate of technical sciences, associate professor V.O.Kulik.

Since 2005, the head of the Department was doctor of technical sciences, professor A. A. Saliei who defended his doctoral dissertation in 2008.
