                     Head of the laboratory: Prof. Michael Zinigrad

 

Areas of research:

1. Development of mathematical models of phase interactions in various technological processes:

- creation of a databases containing physical and chemical parameters of the interacting phases, thermodynamic and kinetic constants of the chemical reactions, technological parameters of the processes, etc.;

- development of basic deterministic models of interactions of metals, slags, and gases at high temperatures;

- development of engineering variants of the mathematical models for specific technological processes;

- development (on the basis of the mathematical models created) of computer programs that permit prediction of the composition and properties of products and optimization of technologies.

2. Development Solid Oxide Fuel Cells (SOFC) using scandium.

3. Syntes organic & non-organic materials for printing inks .

4. Solar thermal energy using.
