The research work of the department of mechanical engineering and engineering mechanics is carried out in accordance with the theme “Intensification of operating modes of chemical equipment, increasing its reliability and developing new composite materials for friction and sealing units”.

The main scientific directions of the department of mechanical engineering and engineering mechanics are formed on the basis of research works, which were carried out under the guidance of former heads of the department, associate professor Mamon LI, professor Ploshenko I.G. and dedicated to increasing the reliability, durability and efficient operation of equipment that works in environments with increased aggressiveness and wear.

On the basis of OJSC “Dniproshina” professor Naumenko O.P. large-scale works are underway to develop materials, methods, devices for the manufacture of products based on elastomeric composite materials, mainly tire profile. As a result, only 28 articles and abstracts have been published in the last five years, 6 monographs have been published, 36 patents have been received. With the participation of professor Naumenko O.P. 27 national standards, 23 interstate standards, 7 military standard appendixes, 9 industry standards were developed.

Since 2002, the Department fruitfully cooperates with scientists of the Research Institute of Technology and Plastics Processing Equipment (NIITOPP) at Beijing University of Chemical Technology (PUKHT, Beijing, PRC). Professor Kuziaiev I.M. is the head of the project. During this period, research was carried out in the field of modeling and design of extrusion equipment, samples of a new type of equipment – centrifugal extruders – were created.

At the Department under the guidance of prof. Sitar V.I., a scientific school was created that works on the research, development and introduction of new technologies and new materials in industry and national economy of Ukraine, including composite (metal-polymer) and nanostructural ones.


In accordance with the direction of scientific activity of the Department, a project on the “Development of heat-resistant nanocomposite materials for tribotechnical purposes for heavy-loaded units of equipment” was sent to the Ukrainian Scientific and Technological Center (STCU) in cooperation with the Design Bureau “Southern” (Dnipropetrovsk).

Together with the Sumy Scientific and Technological Center, the Department works on the development and introduction into the industry of composite polymer materials for movable seals of high pressure compressors are carried out.

Assistant professors Dudka A.M. and Nachovnyi I.I. carry out the research of optimum modes of work of units of friction and sealing of chemical machines and devices. New high-performance designs of end seals and metal-polymer bearing bearings for main oil pump units were designed. These knots are characterized by high durability and technology. The study of lubricating properties of high-performance additives for industrial lubricants and ZOR is also carried out.

Prof. Anisimov V.M. and ass. Chuprina O.L. work on the development of cutting tools and technologies of electro-electric and electroscope processing, the study of the influence of processing regimes on the structure and the chemical composition of surfaces of machine parts. As a result of the work, they created experimental industrial plants, which can be used both in the current machine-building industry and in the educational process.

In general, the Department of Mechanical Engineering and Engineering Mechanics maintains creative relationships with leading machine-building enterprises of Ukraine, such as NPO Yuzhmash, Pavlogradhimmash OJSC, Dneprovagazhmash OJSC, Polymermash OJSC, Dniproavizbummash OJSC, Dniproshina JSC, etc. .

During the period from 2008-2015, state-funded research work was carried out with the involvement of 3-5-year students. The result of such cooperation is the annual defense of diploma research works, participation of students in international conferences of young scientists, postgraduates and students. Students constantly participate in the All-Ukrainian Student Olympiad on Engineering Technology and take seats among the participants in the first half.

In 2011, associate professor Kuziaiev I.M. defended his doctoral dissertation on the topic “Heat-mass exchange processes and development of equipment for high-speed extrusion of polymers”.

In 2014, the doctoral thesis for the doctor’s degree was defended by Associate Professor Anisimov V.M. on a theme “Scientific and technical bases of development of polymeric compositions of tribotechnical appointment from modified thermoplastic materials”.

In 2015, the head of the Department Sitar V.I. received the title of Professor of the Department of Mechanical Engineering and Engineering Mechanics.

The defense of candidate’s dissertations at the Department of Mechanical Engineering and Engineering Mechanics was conducted in 2009 (Kabat O.S.), 2011 (Stolpnik O.V.), 2015 (Lobodenko AV, Klymenko AV).

Associate professor Nachovnyi I.I. was awarded the Diploma of the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine. Order dated May 13, 2009 No. 290-k.

Associate professor Sitar V.I. was awarded the breastplate “Excellence in Education of Ukraine” for many years of diligent work, consistent pedagogical activity and personal contribution to the development of education and science of Ukraine, order from 25.06.2010 № 252-k.
