Department of Thermal and Nuclear Energy performs theoretical and applied research on the following subjects:

• Interaction between heat and mass transfer processes in two-phase gas-liquid systems

• Transfer of heat and impulse in two-phase foam flows and gravitational liquid film

• Reduction of fuel combustion and emissions during combustion, ways for reduction of formation of nitrous oxide

• Works for development and research of refrigeration compressors

• Processes and equipment for heat transformation

• Research of preservation of energy resources

• Calculation of emergency events, using software packages; their analysis for increase of safety of nuclear reactors’ work

• Peer review of nuclear safety projects, preparation of normative documents

• Research of emissions of volatile organic compounds from oil products in containers

Applied works• Preparation of special municipal plans of heat economy

• Analysis and optimisation of thermo engineering systems of heat supply companies, industrial companies, provision of recommendations for modernisation

• Research of fuel combustion

Research of fuel:

• Determination of humidity, profitability and elemental composition (C, H, N, S) of solid fuel using analyser “Vario EL III”

• Determination of the amount of water, resins and sulphur in liquid fuel

• Determination of flashpoint, kinematic viscosity and saturated vapour pressure
